With Michigan looming, Buckeyes focus on Michigan State

Two years ago, the last time Ohio State went to Michigan State for a game, the Buckeyes' players expressed their disappointment more openly over a heart-breaking loss to MSU in the 2013 Big Ten championship game. That conversation has been something that has been a big topic among college football hands but it all is predicated on winning for the next two weeks.

Should those three scenarios play out, the Big 12 champion would be back in business. Despite being one of seven teams in Power 5 conference with one or fewer losses, the Mountaineers were garnering very little respect. Clemson has been faulty much of the season, and Washington had a disgusting loss to a bad USC team . The Big Ten East is suddenly a jumbled mess - with Michigan , Ohio State and Penn State all tied for first, but the Wolverines can still reach the playoff by ...

Denver defence opportunistic in 25-23 triumph over Saints

Coaches and well-trained players will tell you that every win is worth the same. The Broncos lost a couple of Super Bowls - one with Elway and Kubiak - in Nawlins, and they also suffered through a 42-0 blowout to the Saints. The decisive play came while the Superdome crowd was still celebrating Brandin Cooks' twisting, 32-yard touchdown catch between two defenders. Brees then marched New Orleans 50 yards in 27 seconds to set up a short Wil Lutz field goal, and the score is now 10-3.

Browns bench Cody Kessler in second half on Thursday

Jackson on Friday spoke with reporters on a conference call. Because the referee ruled it a touchback, however, I'm unsure how they could have said that BBC was down by contact at the one-yard line. "We are a 0-9 football team, and we want to get on the other side of the ledger". He knows that and understands that.

Wade scores 22 in Chicago debut, Bulls beat Celtics 105-99

Avery Bradley , Jae Crowder , and Al Horford provided tremendous support for Isaiah Thomas . In the 10 days since Carter-Williams had joined the Bulls, his time in practice had been spent learning the point guard position. Joining him in the new-look Chicago backcourt are notorious non-deep range threats as well in Rajon Rondo and Jimmy Butler . My decision to play in Chicago was also bigger than basketball.

Forget about the Steelers; Ravens turn focus toward Browns

Since that night, Baltimore has defeated the Steelers four-straight times and has limited their high-powered offense to a combined 68 points (or 17 points per thumping) and a grand-total of seven touchdowns. With the loss in Baltimore, they have little chance of finishing No. 2 and getting a first-round bye and a second-round home game. Mike Tomlin had some good news again today on the injury front, which is something the struggling Steelers needed.

Jacquizz Rodgers become the latest unheralded running back to gash the 49ers, the second consecutive week they've allowed a 100-yard rusher before halftime. With a defensive unit that continually goes from bad to worse, another win for San Francisco appears unlikely. The first came when Niners rookie Aaron Burbridge collided with punt returner Jeremy Kerley , who was calling for a fair catch.
