- December 04, 2017

The Cowboys have played three bowl games in Florida - the 1984 and '85 Gator Bowls and 1976 Tangerine Bowl - but have not played a game in the state since going to Florida Atlantic in 2005, Mike Gundy's first season. Past year the Hokies rallied in the second half of the Belk Bowl to defeat Arkansas 35-24. No. 22 Virginia Tech is 9-3 in Fuente's second season at the helm after taking over for legendary Hokies coach Frank Beamer. (more...)

Taylor suffered a leg injury early in the game, after throwing a red-zone interception.

And the Tigers will make it three in a row when they open next season in Atlanta against Washington in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game. It will be the second of three straight games in Atlanta for Auburn, which is ranked No. The Peach Bowl will be played at 12:30 p.m. on January 1 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. It's unclear whether Scott Frost, who took the Nebraska job, will return to assist with bowl preparation as originally suggested if a new coach is in place. (more...)

The Belgium ace added: "We always try to play our game, we always try to dominate the game and create problems, but there were a lot of bodies behind the ball and it was just a hard night". He called out The Sun for "lazy journalism" in their article on the issue and stressed that Guardiola's comments were only positive, despite the Spaniard's body language making it look as though he was dishing out a rollocking.

- December 03, 2017

An official announcement is expected later today. The Canes finished No. 10 in the college football playoff. The Hurricanes are looking to win a bowl game in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2003 and 2004.

The Orange Bowl will pit the Wisconsin Badgers and the Miami Hurricanes . (more...)
Ohio State to play USC in Cotton Bowl Ohio State to play USC in Cotton Bowl
- December 03, 2017

Outside linebacker Porter Gustin (toe) did not play in the Pac-12 title game, but the rest of the roster is good to go. This will be the fifth visit by a Big Ten squad overall and the fourth in as many seasons. A relocated Rose Bowl-style game between the Buckeyes and Trojans would have made sense. Two-loss Stanford was not included in the field in 2015. Once we knew the Buckeyes weren't in the playoff, it was possible that Ohio State could again end up in the Fiesta Bowl. (more...)

Chris Coleman admits he flopped on Stadium of Light debut Chris Coleman admits he flopped on Stadium of Light debut
- December 03, 2017

A senseless red card for Callum McManaman (who assaulted Massadio Haidara in that infamous Wigan v Newcastle match) on the stroke of half-time, was quickly followed by three early second-half goals. This was Coleman's first home game in charge since taking over from Simon Grayson but the Black Cats were unable to build on the 2-0 win over Burton Albion last weekend. (more...)

- December 03, 2017

Woods, who had a 69 at the Albany course on Thursday, made an impressive start to the second round with birdies on three of his first four holes.

Tom Brady Yells At Josh McDaniels On The Sideline Tom Brady Yells At Josh McDaniels On The Sideline
- December 03, 2017

And once Brady let him have it, McDaniels quickly gave up. The source of Brady's frustration was unclear, but the two shared a calmer conversation on the bench later in the half. Brady has had sideline eruptions at his offensive coaches before. He is only the fourth quarterback in National Football League history to reach that mark, joining Peyton Manning (71,940 yards), Brett Favre (71,838) and Drew Brees (69,140 as of Sunday morning).

He did so with Brad Childress in Philadelphia and with Doug Pederson in Kansas City, though the sources said Reid will continue to have strong oversight during the game. Plenty of National Football League head coaches - including the New England Patriots' Bill Belichick - let their offensive coordinators call plays, so Reid isn't exactly entering uncharted waters.

As far as wins are concerned, Georgia has plenty of them with a 12-1 record highlighted by a road win against Notre Dame and including wins ... (more...)

Arsenal hosts second-place Manchester United later in the standout match of the 15th round. (more...)
