LSU Gets Important Win Over Auburn to Maintain Second-Place in the SEC

On Saturday, the Auburn Tigers traveled to Baton Rouge to take on the  LSU Tigers (#21) in what was a pivotal game for both teams. For LSU a win meant maintaining a tie for second place in SEC with the Kentucky Wildcats who had won earlier in the day. For Auburn, a road win would show continued improvement for a squad that had been pre-season SEC title favorites but who had also sputtered out of the gate to a 5-4 start to conference play.

Auburn, who is currently ranked 5th in the country in three-point field goals made per game, got off to a hot start from behind the line. The Bruce Pearl led squad converted 60% of their three-point

The Real Reason Behind Patriots Success

In case you missed it, the New England Patriots are once again standing on the top of the mountain as NFL Champions.  Just in this century alone, they have been to an astonishing nine Super Bowl’s, winning six of them.  It doesn’t matter who the competition is, what their offense or defense is ranked, where they were ranked in the regular season, or who is lined up on the other side of the ball, they just find a way to win.  Each time somehow reinventing themselves and creating a game plan that nobody saw coming.

Cincinnati Caps Historic Season with Victory over Virginia Tech in the Military Bowl

The 2018 Cincinnati Bearcats arrived at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium looking to put the finishing touches on a historic season. With a win in the game, the Bearcats (10-2) would match the school’s second highest single-season win total.

However, quick turnarounds are not unheard of at the Group of 5 level with coaches like Scott Frost and P.J. Fleck leading major turnarounds after a disappointing debut season.

The Bearcats entered Monday’s Military Bowl as 6.5 point favorites over opponent Virginia Tech. It was the 11th meeting of the two programs with Virginia Tech holding a 6-5 edge in the all-time
