Wisconsin fans push two Provo bars to record-breaking financial weekend

In a stunning development, it turns out that Wisconsinites (gasp!) like their beer. Of course, it’s neither stunning nor a development that the state of Wisconsin tends to imbibe more than most others, as survey after survey after survey has suggested. This past weekend, a pair of Provo bars — in fact, the only two bar bars in the entire Mormon-heavy city — bore witness to the alcohol monolith that is the state in general and its college football fans in particular. The Wisconsin Badgers invaded Provo Saturday for its Week 3 matchup with the BYU Cougars. With its fans in tow, it seemed as if the whole of the college football world was just daring Badger Nation to drink the city dry, a challenge

Malzahn feels good about DT depth

AUBURN | The ranks at defensive tackle are thinning out at an alarming rate for No. 15 Auburn, but so far Gus Malzahn doesn’t seem concerned. The Tigers will open up conference play at Missouri Saturday with just seven scholarship defensive tackles on the roster, but three of those have played little to no snaps this season. “I think right now our defense is the No. 2 defense in the country and our defensive line has a lot to do with that,” Malzahn said.

Walk-on Wednesday Southern California freshman kicker Chase McGrath quickly makes impact

Before Chase McGrath and his father, Greg, walked into the Southern California football offices in the spring of 2017, they made a plan. On the off chance that coaches offered him a spot on the roster, McGrath planned to accept. It did not matter that he had a scholarship offer from Army and a handful of walk-on spots at other Power Five schools. McGrath had to be a Trojan.  Born and raised in Los Angeles, McGrath grew up an avid USC fan. He attended Mater Dei High, a football factory in Santa Ana, Calif., that doubles as a pipeline to USC football, known best for sending major quarterback prospects like Matt Leinart and Matt Barkley on to the Trojans.  So when head coach Clay Helton wandered
