Army will never be a dominant force in college football the way Texas can be, but both programs have a special place in college football’s history. Seeing them each reach their expectations is capable if the right coach is brought in.
Texas head coach Mack Brown is retiring after 16 seasons, with his final game to be the Dec. 30 Alamo Bowl against Oregon.
Navy beat Army 34-7 on Saturday for its 12th consecutive victory in the series. Keenan Reynolds’ 29th rushing touchdown broke the single-season mark for a quarterback.
In all likelihood, Florida State freshman quarterback Jameis Winston will walk away with the prestigious award. The 19-year-old has thrown for 38 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions, completing 68 percent of his passing attempts.
Winston: “I knew I did nothing wrong. I knew I could respect the process and I’d eventually be vindicated. It was more about me being silent for my family because I didn’t want to put my family in those situations.”
The Navy Midshipmen has not only defeated Army 11 straight times — they’ve won 13 of the last 14.
Boston College running back Andre Williams is hoping to capture the Heisman Trophy.
The Heisman Trophy will be presented Saturday evening in New York City. Winston’s name should be at the top of the list as college football’s most impressive player from the start of the season through the championship games. Everything else after that is purely a guess.
Are the two best teams in the country right now scheduled to collide in Pasadena, California? It would be difficult to prove otherwise.
Winston will have plenty of company at the Heisman Trophy ceremony – though he’s not expected to have much competition.
The 19-year-old Heisman Trophy candidate was accused of raping a female student in December last year, but Meggs says there is not enough evidence for anyone to be charged in the case.
Few quarterbacks in college football have put up the kind of passing numbers Fresno State’s Derek Carr has this season. Carr has passed for a nation-leading 4,462 yards and 45 touchdowns while being picked off just five times all year.
If Ohio State gets by the defensive juggernaut of Michigan State in Indianapolis, the Buckeyes absolutely deserve to head to the final BCS Championship Game of the BCS era regardless of what happens at the SEC Championship in Atlanta.
A woman charged with killing a fellow Alabama fan after the end of last weekend’s Iron Bowl was angry that the victim and others didn’t seem upset over the Crimson Tide’s loss to archrival Auburn, said the sister of the slain woman.
With the competition wide open for the Heisman Trophy, Boston College running back Andre Williams has become a bit of a rising contender.
