Twice is nice: Sophomore Jayden Peevy blocked a pair of UAB kicks — a field goal and an extra point. It was the Aggies’ second field-goal block of the season (Daylon Mack vs. Louisiana-Monroe) and marked the first time since the 2017 Auburn game that the Aggies blocked more than one kick in the same game.
Texas A&M’s Senior Night proved to be a microcosm of safety Donovan Wilson’s career — some pros, a few cons and injury rehabilitation.
If you subjected LSU coach Ed Orgeron to some sort of truth serum before Saturday night’s exhibition game with Rice, you probably could have gotten him to reveal a checklist that looked something like this:
Running back Trayveon Williams and tight end Jace Sternberger each scored a pair of touchdowns to lead Texas A&M to a 41-20 nonconference victory over the UAB Blazers on Saturday night at Kyle Field before 97,584 fans.
Throughout their careers at LSU, Foster Moreau and Nick Brossette haven’t exactly been focal points of the Tigers’ offense.
AUBURN — Looking at the final score without context, you would think Auburn’s offense simply steamrolled through a Liberty defense that entered Saturday’s game among the worst in the FBS.
The No. 7 LSU Tigers look to keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive with a win over the Rice Owls Saturday night at Tiger Stadium.
ATLANTA — Georgia Tech kicker Wesley Wells followed a career-long 48-yard field goal with a 40-yard attempt that barely cleared the cross bar in the first overtime period on Saturday, but his kick was enough to lift the Yellow Jackets to a 30-27 win over Virginia.
Georgia did not completely halt the Massachusetts offense in its 66-27 win on Saturday, but it still dominated in most facets of the game.
The Bulldogs tallied 701 yards of total offense compared to the Minutemen’s 390, although the 27 points from UMass were more than the Bulldogs have given up in eight of their previous 10 games. The 66 points scored by the Bulldogs marked the first time they scored more than 60 points since they defeated Kentucky 63-31 in 2014.
What began with a celebration for the senior class eventually gave way to playing time for Tigers who haven’t had their number called a lot this season in LSU's 42-10 victory over Rice on Saturday night at Tiger Stadium.
LSU public address announcer Dan Borne will miss just his third football game in 33 seasons Saturday night when the Tigers host Rice in Tiger Stadium.
While he did receive some playing time late against Auburn, Fields really got a chance to shine on Saturday against Massachusetts, and showed why he was once the No. 1 recruit in the country for the class of 2018, according the 247 Sports Composite.
The Bulldogs rode the performances of several freshmen, including quarterback Justin Fields ,in the first half against Massachusetts and entered halftime with a 42-13 lead.
Wake Forest now has to hope its trend over the second half of its season continues for one more game, to have a chance to reach a bowl game.
TUSCALOOSA — Alabama head coach Nick Saban doesn’t overlook any opponent for a reason, and The Citadel proved exactly why in a surprising first half Saturday inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Exhale, everyone. The biggest fear going into Saturday morning for Alabama fans was a costly injury. Suddenly, Quinnen Williams found himself awkwardly on the turf thanks to a blindside hit.
College football and Twitter: Combined, it's an odd, unique place where The Citadel can poke fun at LSU, Alabama and Mississippi State in just 86 characters.
Behind Enemy Bylines is a series in which The Red & Black discusses Georgia’s upcoming game with the sports editor of the student newspaper of Georgia’s opponent for that week. This week, assistant sports editor Michael Hebert talked to assistant sports editor Thomas Johnston of The Massachusetts Daily Collegian.
BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech will play Marshall on Dec. 1 at Lane Stadium, but only if the Hokies need the game to become bowl eligible, multiple sources with knowledge of the deal confirmed Saturday morning.
1. Start fast: Georgia Tech’s offense can be prolific piling up yards and points but it’s not built to come from behind. An early lead against the Yellow Jackets can go a long way. GT has outscored opponents 94-73 in the first quarter of games this year. It trailed at the half in three of its four losses. In the fourth loss, it was tied at the break. Virginia has been even better in the first quarter, outscoring opponents 93-54 in the first 15 minutes of games.
1. Stop the run: It’s been the difference the past three weeks. In losses to Georgia Tech, Boston College and Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech’s young and beat-up defense couldn’t stop their opponent from running the football. Miami has gotten mixed results running the ball this season, ranking seventh in the ACC. But Travis Homer has big-game ability and talented freshman Cam’Ron Davis is expected to play and burn his redshirt year, as well.
Texas A&M tight end Jace Sternberger has made an instant impact in his first year with the program after transferring from Kansas by way of Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.
Texas A&M football fans were hopeful Jimbo Fisher’s first victory over a team from Alabama would be against the Crimson Tide, or at least the Auburn Tigers. Instead, they’ll settle for it coming against the Alabama-Birmingham Blazers.
