After all the disgusting headlines out of Penn State dominating the sports world this past week, it was good to return to the field with some actual football. And the Top 25 gave us plenty of excitement to discuss.
Seven ranked teams, including two in the Top Five, went down to defeat. Boise State saw its BCS hopes die on a missed field goal as time expired (again). Oregon downed Stanford in a wild Pac-12 shootout. Oklahoma State looked every bit the part of a title contender. And Penn State hit the field without Joe Paterno at the helm for the first time in 46 years. Here are all the highlights from this week in the AP Top 25.
From the frat house to the football field — just another day in the life of Tennessee kicker Derrick Brodus. The walk-on freshman was not expected to play or even suit up for the Volunteers in last week’s game against Middle Tennessee. In fact, he wasn’t even at the stadium — he was lying on a couch in his fraternity house getting ready to watch the game when the call came. “We need you at the stadium. Now.”
While we may not have the marquee appeal of another #1 vs. #2 matchup this week, there are still plenty of huge games in college football this week. Third-ranked Stanford must face #6 Oregon to keep its national title hopes alive, while #12 Penn State will look to escape all its controversy with a big game against #19 Nebraska in its first game since Joe Paterno was relieved of his duties. And, to whet your appetite for another big Saturday, three top 25 teams are in action this Thursday night. Here’s what you should look for in this week’s games involving teams from the AP Top 25.
The report cites two unnamed sources close to the PSU Board of Trustees who say that, while the exact timing and manner of his exit is still being discussed, it is clear that Paterno will not be back to coach the Nittany Lions next season.
After weeks of negotiation and “will they or won’t they” speculation, the Southeastern Conference finally made it official on Sunday, announcing its acceptance of Missouri as the league’s 14th school. The Tigers are expected to make the move next summer at the same time as fellow Big 12 member Texas A&M, which is also leaving for the SEC.
It was a wild week in college football with a defensive showdown between #1 LSU and #2 Alabama, #3 Oklahoma State surviving an offensive shootout, and eight Top 25 teams going down. Here are all the highlights from this week in the AP Top 25.
Yale quarterback Patrick Witt may face an interesting dilemma in a couple of weeks: choosing between a chance to beat archrival Harvard on the football field and a shot at one of the most prestigious academic awards in the world.
After announcing last week that they would be joining the Big 12, West Virginia officials on Monday filed a lawsuit seeking to leave the Big East next summer. Current Big East bylaws require that member schools give 27 months notice before leaving the conference.
It was another wild weekend in college football, with seven Top 25 teams, including three in the Top Ten, going down to defeat. Stanford remained in the national championship hunt with a triple overtime win, while Clemson and Kansas State are likely out of the title discussion as their undefeated seasons came to an end. Here are all the highlights from this week in the AP Top 25.
