Of course, Cook is the problem now, and he's coming off a 225-yard, four-touchdown performance against Syracuse. The score was Cook's 45th career touchdown at Florida State , breaking the school record of 44 held by former running back Greg Allen (1983).
Should WSU win, everyone in the Pac-12 would have two-losses. Behind Alabama, the next five teams in the rankings have one loss apiece: Ohio State , Michigan, Clemson, Louisville and Washington, ranked in that order. West Virginia hosts No. 9 Oklahoma on Saturday . MI (9-1) and Clemson (9-1) each slipped two spots to Nos. Head coach Mark Dantonio already stated his intentions for the Spartans to win their final two games and fight for a bowl berth, despite potentially ending with a ...
It just means the rivalry needs no embellishments. The Meyer-Harbaugh coaching matchup is reminiscent of the Woody Hayes-Bo Schembechler era when the series was in its heyday in the 1970s. Meyer noted the Wolverines' experience. Has the gap closed? "I don't know if I've ever considered a gap", he said, adding: "And if there is, it doesn't matter".
The Bo-Woody years truly were the best: There were seasons when both teams were ranked in the top five nationally and, because conferences could send just one team to a bowl game back then, the victor went on to the Rose Bowl while the loser went home - even if it were ranked in the top five in the nation.
Ditto for the Vikings , who have been without All-Pro Adrian Peterson since he injured his knee in Week 2. The Lions , 6-and-4 on the season, are in first place in the NFC North. The offense still isn't fixed as it managed just 217 total yards. And the defense? It's elite too. What a wild Sunday for the NFC playoff picture. For the Lions , this win would help them distance themselves from the other teams in the NFC North.
Kirk Cousins looked like vintage Peyton Manning against the Packers defense last weekend. His coach in college (Ohio State's Urban Meyer) said he was the best player he has ever had with the ball not in his hands. "It's a positive thing that (analysts) would say that, but at the same time I know people are itching to say the opposite if I don't play well on Thursday", said Cousins, no stranger to having to prove himself.
Long Island's independent business owners are gearing up for Small Business Saturday, which is meant to promote small businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving. "We have free name imprinting with the purchase of a Bible and we offer free gift wrapping too". "Everyone will be ready to save money and shop, and we'll be here to provide them with genuine information about getting and staying healthy and happy".
For the Kansas City Chiefs, the 20-17 victory against Carolina Panthers on Sunday was just that game. "You can't take back-to-back sacks", Rivera said after Sunday's 20-17 loss. Stewart gave way at the end of the game to Fozzy Whittaker, who caught one pass for 9 yards. "So I just tried to use their momentum against them". Apparently that means you just take it anyway.
Austin Allen was just off, missing open receivers and completing less than half of his passes on the evening. The Razorbacks pulled away in the second quarter with 24 consecutive points. Alabama rolled up the Bulldogs, 51-3, last Saturday, while LSU had their way with the Hogs, 38-10. Evans hit Josh Atkison for 15 yards and Keevan Lucas for 45 yards.
With Dak Prescott firmly in control of the Cowboys' future the speculation about Romo's future in the National Football League - will he play? where will he play? will the Cowboys send him to a team of his choice? - will overtake the offseason.
Djokovic said: " I accept and I know that I'm one of the players that takes the most time. Murray won their most recent clash in the semi-finals of the French Open but had lost the three previous ones, including at the same stage here a year ago.
Alabama is the undisputed top dog, but the Big Ten is the Big Show in the third College Football Playoff rankings , which followed a stunning weekend of losing among highly ranked teams. Luckily for Penn State, Michigan has a trip to Columbus to take on the Buckeyes left on the schedule. That doesnt make sense to me.. They'd need both the head-to-head win over the Buckeyes and what would be a nine-game winning streak to be highly valued by the committee.
They knew they had the killer offensive line; they saw Elliott as a player who could help them maximize it. Where could it all go wrong for the Cowboys? Even more promising for Dallas is that after the first four weeks (or, since Brady has returned), it has performed better than New England ATS in every week.
On a college football Saturday full of stunning losses by the country's highest-ranked teams, the Wolverines were not immune, buried by the Iowa Hawkeyes on a last-second field goal in Iowa City that sent third-ranked MI to its first loss of the season by a 14-13 score.
In the early match, Stan Wawrinka finally lost a match at the ATP World Tour Finals to someone who has not been ranked world No. 1. The Canadian pulled out of his Paris Masters semi-final against Andy Murray with a right thigh injury earlier this month and it was touch and go whether he recovered in time for the London year-ender.
And then, just like after a win, it's on to IN next week. If Michigan State beats Ohio State at home next week and Ohio State beats Michigan the week after, the Nittany Lions assuming they beat lowly Rutgers and the Spartans at home would win the East.
No other conference has stacked up to the Big Ten this season. Bottom line from Saturday: The more two-loss conference champions, the better it is for any Power Five school with less than two losses that doesn't win its conference. For Louisville, an outside shot at the ACC Atlantic is there for the taking, as well as an ACC championship. The Utes, Buffaloes and Cougars could all still win the Pac-12 at 11-2, which at least gets them a look if there are conference championship ...
The Bengals played two Monday night games last season and lost both, leaving them 11-22 all-time on Monday nights. It was a crucial victory for Big Blue, who are angling for the playoffs despite being down two games to the Cowboys in the division.
The Panthers go to the CU 29 with 12 seconds left, and Blewitt split the uprights to shock the Tiger faithful. Clemson, armed with Heisman victor Deshaun Watson and NFL-ready receiver Mike Williams had put up 580 yards of offense through the air.
Meaning that after approximately 276 days of grueling training, intense studying, and brutal contact the Saints ultimate fate will likely be decided within the next five days, and what a five days it will be! So if New Orleans can pick up first downs and move the ball on the ground, that will help the offense not only keep moving, but also open up the passing game to really try and attack this Broncos team.
Yet despite all of those challenges, we'll see the same four unblemished teams atop the CFP rankings next week. This game is one they need to win, despite looking down the road at Alabama . 1 ranking in the nation. Louisville is No. 5 on my ballot, and since Ohio State and MI are still to play, the Cardinals would have a legitimate shot of making my final top 4.
Green Bay is now averaging 24.8 points per game on the season. Quarterback, offensive line , backs, receivers, balance, explosiveness - the Packers are better, and improving. Matthews is increasingly looking like the best bet for fantasy production within the Titans receiving corps, outside of Delanie Walker. Rodgers and the Packers haven't been their usual selves this year, but he is still plenty risky.
Wade finished the game shooting 7-18 from the field, and to everyone's surprise 3 of 4 from 3-point range. Last season he was only hitting seven of his 44 three-point shots on the season. Now that Wade took the last shot in a close game, I'm sure the question will arise as to who is the Alpha male on the team between him and Butler .
There's no one but me". And, if he does, there's no doubt the UFC will ask him to drop one of those belts. In actual fact we'd probably react exactly the same way this NY cop did when she met Conor McGregor. It seems like it's said every single time Notorious steps inside of the Octagon, but Alvarez is perhaps his toughest test to date, and will do his best to stop the Irishman from creating history in NY, where he can become the first man to hold two world titles simultaneously.
The Patriots enter the week playing well three weeks after coach Bill Belichick described a performance against the Bills in which he said the team failed in all three phases of the game. "LG ran hard, good ball security, good pad level, made some tough yards and made a couple of big play, explosive runs". The Steelers have been missing starters such as Heyward with his injury and Shazier, who missed the previous two games and played just 56 percent of the snaps Sunday upon his return.
Nov 6, 2016; Minneapolis , MN, USA; Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway (52) celebrates a tackle during the second quarter against the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. But that's what makes today's game between the Giants and Eagles all the more important for both teams, and neither will want to give away anything today.
Ronald Jones having another big night for the Trojans, totaling 171 yards on 30 carries. The game also features a matchup between two promising freshman quarterbacks who refused to wait their turns to play. Jones followed with a 23-yard touchdown run on the next possession and a 3-yard score to push the lead to 17-0. The Trojans have gone 4-1 since. And of most interest is that the starring roles were played by three Trojans who were not in the starting lineup to start the season.
Green Bay, meanwhile, is counting on its pass rush to cover for an ailing secondary. The two teams have met four times in the postseason, with that series split 2-2. 2. "What professional athlete don't have a gun?" It's also what the Eagles (4-4) aren't doing. This year, even more so. Carroll gave up a game-tying 22-yard TD catch to Dez Bryant Sunday night in Dallas.
It's still all out there in front of you. Auburn only has one win against a team in the top 25 with LSU at 13, and I don't see anyone else that they have beaten joining the top 25 any time soon. I think in this case that the committee was looking only at strength of schedule and not at the team as a whole; and let's face it, A&M has not shown themselves to have the kind of depth that other top-ten teams have.
Fournette has not been outspoken about Saturday's SEC West showdown between the 15th-ranked Tigers and No. 1 Crimson Tide, and likely plans to let his play on the field do the talking for him. If Hurts has time , the Tiger secondary will find itself playing catchup. Through the first four games this season before Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron were fired after LSU's 2-2 start, the Tigers averaged 147.8 yards per game passing with four TDs and three interceptions.
Bosa missed the first four games of the season, but he's been a terror for opposing offenses as a pass rusher. "We're relevant because we earned it", Del Rio said. "That's what this league is about". I think the Seahawks will find a way to win the game , but I expect it to be close so I'll take the Bills with the points.
