Randle was one of many bright spots on a Lakers team that had five players in double-digits in a win over the Bulls. Yes, Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony stepped up, but the Knicks got by far the best game of O'Quinn's NY career, after which Hornacek didn't rule out the possibility of the 6-foot-10 bearded wonder sticking as a starter even when Joakim Noah is healthy.

The Buffaloes stayed in the same hotel as the Broncos did for the Super Bowl, and will wear white jerseys and white trousers, the same combination the Broncos wore when they beat the Carolina Panthers. That season featured the Buffaloes wrecking the Texas Longhorns' postseason hopes as a top-10 team. By the end, the Huskies were up 41-10 and Colorado was left scratching their heads wondering where things went wrong.

Fantasy sports are not as big in college football, meaning there's more focus on teams and games and not as much focus on individual players and their stats. But here's the issue I have, Penn State's Defense has given up 22.8 points a game. The Nittany Lions not only beat the Buckeyes, but walloped Iowa, as well.

That'd be his ideal shoot-the-gap blitz on Wilton Speight, resulting in Malik Hooker's game-changing pick-six. Those titles don't automatically come with playoff spots, and in some cases, the wrong victor could ruin things for a conference.

Conference members are unable to help their cause for consideration for the playoff . And Clemson and No. 23 Virginia Tech meet simultaneously for the Atlantic Coast championship in Orlando. Then a team like Central Michigan took down Oklahoma State on the road and it was on a last-second Hail Mary play that no one saw coming. Meanwhile the Big Ten champion would match Colorado's conference title but from a tougher conference.

With Russell Wilson at quarterback, anything is possible. Since selecting Wilson in the third round of the NFL Draft back in 2012, Seattle have moulded their entire scheme to suit their quarterback’s extensive skillset. The defensive unit, famously labelled as the ‘Legion of Boom’, are still regarded as one of the NFL’s elite groups. With Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor patrolling in the secondary, Seattle have three aggressive, ball-hawking options ...

FILE - In this October 1, 2016, file photo. "The only person I've talked to [at Oregon] is [fired coach Mark Helfrich]", Kelly said. Just moments after the Oregon State defeat, Helfrich was asked about his job security. The Ducks are coming off a 4-8 season, their first losing since 2004.

Critics have questioned whether Southgate can be ruthless enough at the top level, but former England captain Terry Butcher believes he proved his mettle by dropping Wayne Rooney against Slovenia last month.

Through Week 10, the Packers have gone three-and-out on 18.9 percent of their possessions, a respectable clip ranked eighth in the National Football League and not far removed from their better years with Rodgers . Of course, any discussion of Thompson starts with the fact that he has already built one Super Bowl-winning roster in Green Bay . KEYS TO THE GAME: The Packers were throttled, 42-24, by the Redskins at FedEx Field in Week 11, dropping to 4-6 - their worst record through 10 ...

It didn't matter whether the Bengals accepted or declined said penalties, the game was over regardless. The second came with 1:05 remaining and the Bengals driving for a potential game-tying touchdown. It was wild to watch the Ravens tip four of Dalton's final nine attempts before Elvis Dumervil's strip-sack of the signal-caller ended the game with a minute-plus to play.

A 17-yard pass to J.J. Nelson that may or may not have been incomplete. From being waived by the Browns to scoring touchdowns in four straight games for Atlanta, it's been a wild ride for Gabriel. Johnson can't carry the team himself. None of that has happened for head coach Bruce Arians this season. The Arizona Cardinals playoff hopes were stomped by the feet of Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman and the lackluster play of their own offensive line on Sunday.

The Tigers play Virginia Tech for the ACC championship in Orlando, Fla., next Saturday at 8 p.m. But Clemson was right there to stop Hayden Hurst from making the play giving the Tigers great field position.

Clemson, Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State and Utah are the only schools to be ranked in the top 25 in all 17 polls so far. Clemson (10-1, 7-1 ACC): Clemson hasn't cruised this season, but the Tigers are poised to win a tough ACC. 1 Alabama's ideal (11-0) regular season. It's very humbling and I thank Ohio State for it.

Auburn, 14. Florida State, 15. Ask yourself this question, though. This hype video is a long one (it runs over eight minutes) but out of the literally dozens of videos released over this rivalry in the past couple of weeks it stands out as being the best.

Stock up: Penn State . The hated rivals face off on November 26. The only way that'll change is if the Buckeyes lose - to MI next Saturday . Penn State moved from No. The Buckeyes must win their final two games. The CFP committee ranked PSU No. 8 in this week's rankings, up two spots from No. 10 a week ago.

For his part, Goff finished 17 of 31 for 134 yards, no TDs and no interceptions. Miami barely kept alive its longest winning streak since 2008, and the future looks bright: None of the Dolphins' next five opponents now has a winning record, which means the Dolphins are in prime position to claim their first playoff berth since 2008.

Not yet. Bowles said he will name his starter next week. With their quarterback situation unsettled the Jets are going to have to rely more than ever on RBs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell . According to a team source the Jets were planning to give Petty a shot in December anyway once they were clearly eliminated from the playoff chase, and after they got through the New England Patriots in their first game after the bye.

Ohio State out-rushed MI 369-57 previous year. If anything, Ohio State's loss to Penn State and Michigan's loss to Iowa magnified the importance of The Game.

Path to the playoff: Despite the disappointing home loss to Pittsburgh, I believe Clemson still controls its destiny. If the Nittany Lions win out and Ohio State beats Michigan, Penn State would be the division champion. No. 8 Texas A&MNo. After debuting at No. 9 in the initial set of CFP rankings November 1 and remaining idle last week , Auburn now stands at No.

If the Gators come out with a more fiery passion, a more defined goal, and a stronger sense of urgency, then the critics will be silenced, the Tigers will be defeated, and the SEC East will be won.

Prosise (35 percent owned), and Jeremy Langford (26 percent owned). Take Brandon Marshall for example, he's benchable despite being a Top 5 receiver a year ago. In games with double-digit carries (seven), Crowell is averaging 13.2 FPPG with five touchdowns. They changed, and Starks was his normal, boring self, Montgomery got limited work, and the rest of the offense was just OK.

Davies noted McGregor said he has some major announcements before his fight with Alvarez, but Triple H clarified, "If his announcement has anything to do with WWE, then it's news to me". With that win, McGregor became the first man to hold two championships simultaneously in the 23-year history of the UFC.

Linebacker Clay Matthews will miss his third straight game with a hamstring issue. Marcus Mariota and DeMarco Murray can look really unsafe at times, with Murray proving to be a major addition to the club's roster. When Matthews is in the lineup, his versatility allows the Packers to use him in ways other than rushing the passer. This week should be another good performance against a Titans defense that is getting gashed at all levels of the field.
