The University of Connecticut football program has made unprecedented progress this season. Standing in their way in Phoenix will be the mighty Sooners of Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is back in the Fiesta Bowl and is supposed to win big. As of Tuesday, the Sooners (11-2) were 17-point favorites against No. 25 Connecticut (8-4) in the New Year’s night matchup.
Connecticut’s trip to the Fiesta Bowl gives the basketball-dominated school something else to cheer about.The Huskies’ reward is a cross-country trip to face an offense that churns out more plays than any other.
The news just keeps getting better for first-year St. John’s coach Steve Lavin.
Sir Dominic Pointer, a native of Detroit who plays at Quality Education Academy in Winston-Salem, N.C., signed with the Red Storm on Thursday.
I knew LSU’s defense would keep the Tigers in the game, but never did I think I’d see Alabama allow 433 yards (225 rushing) to LSU’s mediocre and dysfunctional offense.
Number 1 has now lost three weeks in a row. This time around it was the top ranked BCS team Oklahoma dropping a prime time inter-conference game to rival Missouri.
When the first official BCS rankings were released Sunday the Sooners took the top spot. Their prize is a trip to Missouri to take on the defensive-minded Tigers.
Learning the mutating totem pole of college football rankings requires either a degree in astrophysics or the patience of a crocodile. Most of us have neither.
10. Utah (6-0): It’s just not the record that impresses me – because they don’t play the best of competition – it’s the team, and the way they play on both sides of the ball.
Oklahoma and Oregon are in the top spots of the first BCS standings of the season, leaving Boise State chasing a spot in the national championship game.
The Ducks climbed to the top spot for the first time Sunday, moving up one position during an off week after previously top-ranked Ohio State lost 31-18 at Wisconsin on Saturday night.
10. Michigan State (6-0): The Spartans are another team that made a huge statement on Saturday with their convincing win over rival Michigan at the Big House.
10. Arkansas (3-1): I put the Razorbacks ahead of teams such as Utah, Miami and Stanford because they are more deserving.
We headed into the weekend with a plethora of marquee matchups, but very few of them actually lived up to the hype. However, despite the lack of drama, we saw some big statements made.
