No longer the underdog, Oklahoma QB Mayfield still has fire

A 6-foot-3, 215-pound native of Gainesville, Georgia, Watson became Clemson's first Heisman finalist a year ago. He has one interception, three sacks, and 67 tackles. Peppers, a Montclair, New Jersey native, is one of the five finalists being considered for 2016. WORST GAME: It seems insane to label an ACC-record-setting performance as Watson's worst game, but his 580 yards passing against Pitt were offset by three interceptions — and the last two led to Panthers touchdowns in their ...

George Mason pulls away from Penn State 85-66

Ohio State's J.T Barrett has been good as well he has 2428 yards this season along with 24 touchdowns but he only has a QB rating of 60.9. The Oklahoma omission was expected. Just ask Ohio State and MI. I am still convinced that MI is about as good as any team in the country, except for Alabama . Barrett quarterbacked the Buckeyes to an 11-1 record as the starter in 2014 but missed the team's three postseason games after breaking his ankle in the regular-season finale against MI. Read More

Man City need to earn respect in Europe, says Guardiola

His counterpart and Basel manager Urs Fischer was quoted as saying to ITV news that, "We do not go into the game with the goal of a draw". He worked defensively.

Spanish striker Fernando Llorente sees his future at Swansea

Palace have now lost six league games on the bounce and sit just two points above the relegation zone. A Crystal Palace corner, a Scott Dann header and an alert Christian Benteke later and the score was 3-4 to visitors. I need to address that so it might be I need to change some of the team. The pace from Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend will be crucial to allowing the Palace attack to Swansea's defence and the midfield duo of McArthr and Cabaye will be critical to the nature of the game.

Iheanacho steps in to score as Man City, Celtic draw 1-1

The result mattered little since City was already sure of finishing in second place in Group C while Celtic had no chance of avoiding a last-place finish. Sane, who became influential in the latter stages after a mostly quiet game, wanted a penalty late on when his cross struck Jozo Simunovic's hand but, after some thought, referee Slavko Vincic gave a a corner.

Callejon broke clear and dinked the ball over Ederson in the 60th minute and substitute Mertens sealed a convincing win for the Serie A side in the Group B match with a superb individual effort. After his team went down 4-0, he burst into tears.

Penn State overcomes 21-point deficit to win title

Penn State was down 28-7 late in the second against Wisconsin and trailed 28-14 at halftime, ultimately going on a 31-3 run against a stingy Badgers defense to win the program's fourth Big Ten title.

Penn State up to No. 7 in most recent CFP Poll

Maybe the Big Ten should have its own playoff. "They're an extremely talented football team". But even these preliminary rankings provide a window into the collective thinking of the committee. Barrett will have to carry the load. Teams that lost dropped a few (inconsistent) places, while other teams just slid up to take those places. "It's a great opportunity and tremendous challenge", he said in one of his many brief answers. Read More

Once again the SEC East is the weaker of the two divisions in the SEC, and for the second consecutive year the Florida Gators are the champions of the East.
