St. John’s picked up where it left off following its big win at Syracuse on Dec. 6, beating Fairleigh Dickinson 74-52 on Wednesday and then taking out city rival Fordham, 74-53 on Sunday at the MSG Holiday Festival on Sunday.
Marcus Mariota, the prototypical 21st century quarterback, took an old-fashioned approach to become Oregon’s first Heisman Trophy winner.
Navy extended its winning streak over Army to 13 games, using a strong defensive performance and the versatility of quarterback Keenan Reynolds to carve out a 17-10 victory Saturday.
