While theyre both very good here is why Oklahoma gets the nod over Oklahoma State

Question: There was a lot to like about Texas even with a loss to USC. What was the biggest positive? Matt Mosley: I think the biggest positive was they went toe to toe with an alleged national title contender. It wasn't a fluke or anything. In fact, USC needed a fluke play at the end of the half to ultimately win. I think you saw that Ehlinger is a gamer who doesn't shy away from the bright lights. There were so many things that went wrong...and he just hung in there and kept plugging away. The Horns probably should've banged away more with Warren and tried to wear the Trojans down. I hated that Ehlinger was the one in there trying to bulldoze his way toward the goal line on that fumble. This

No 20 Florida tries for 31st straight win over Kentucky

The last time Kentucky beat Florida on the football field, Ronald Reagan was approaching the halfway mark of his second term. The year was 1986, and the Wildcats, then coached by Jerry Claiborne, scored the only touchdown on running back Mark Higgs' short plunge for a 10-3 victory over the Gators. The next year Florida beat Kentucky 27-14 in Gainesville to start what has become a stretch of 30 consecutive victories for the Gators in the series, the longest active winning streak over a major college opponent and the fifth-longest such streak of all-time.

No 5 USC Trojans take on improved Cal Golden Bears in road test

Fifth-ranked USC plays its first road game of the season against California in Berkeley on Saturday night in a game between 3-0 teams that don't yet know how good they are. The Trojans were impressive in their 42-24 victory over Stanford, but their other two games against unranked foes were less awe-inspiring. They were tied with Western Michigan midway through the fourth quarter before pulling that one out, and they trailed Texas with just 45 seconds left in the fourth quarter before winning in double overtime. "That's the best two-minute drive I've ever been associated with," USC coach Clay Helton said after the game. The game-tying drive might have been a thing of beauty, but Helton later

Nick Saban No panic about Alabama Crimson Tide defense

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama coach Nick Saban said he didn't like how the defense finished against Colorado State. Despite last week's 41-23 win, linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton and other defenders said the defense would have a "come-to-Jesus" meeting after the Crimson Tide surrendered 391 yards to the Rams. Top-ranked Alabama is 3-0, but the defense didn't play up to standard last Saturday. Saban gave his thoughts on player-only meetings during his Monday news conference. "I think it's really up to the players but I also think that every player has got to look at what they have to do to try to improve and get better," Saban said. "I think everybody can contribute in a more positive way by just

The Latest Lawyer laments university attempt to spike suit

The attorney for one of Ohio State's most famous football stars says he's disappointed the university is trying to get a judge to throw out a lawsuit alleging the university used ex-athletes' photos without permission. The class-action suit by former linebacker Chris Spielman seeks compensation for the former athletes and an end to marketing programs that capitalize on them.
