LOS ANGELES — He danced. He darted. He dodged. He defied. He defined. During one hot moment on a chilly Saturday night in downtown Los Angeles, this city’s newest sports superstar ran around the Coliseum grass for what seemed like an eternity while avoiding desperate hulks, lunging helmets, flailing arms. Then it happened. Whoa. Wow. Just like that. Just like it previously happened for every ...

TAMPA, Fla. — It’s unclear what the future holds for the “War on I-4″ rivalry series but one thing is certain: There will be no love lost the next time UCF and USF meet on the football field. The Knights almost lost Saturday night, a game they had in control with a 28-0 lead in the second quarter until a disastrous third littered by turnovers could’ve ruined their chances at the AAC ...

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Tight end Theo Johnson set a new career-high with a pair of touchdown catches as Penn State earned its 10th win of the year in a 35-16 victory against Michigan State on Saturday evening at Beaver Stadium. Johnson’s first touchdown catch, which was his third of the year, was made possible by some blown coverage by the Spartans’ secondary, came on a third-and-8 for Penn ...

FORT WORTH, Texas — There was no need for a miracle field goal or a second-half rally against Iowa State. No. 4 TCU played like a team that belonged in the College Football Playoff with a dominant 62-14 win over Iowa State on Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Not only did the Horned Frogs finish the first regular season 12-0 under head coach Sonny Dykes, they also snapped a three-game losing ...

CHICAGO — Don’t worry, Cole Kmet said, Trevor Siemian will not take it as an insult if you say he is unlikely to keep the ball on a zone read and motor 60 yards through the New York Jets defense Sunday at MetLife Stadium. “Definitely more of a drop-back guy, get the ball out, timing,” Kmet said. “We’re not going to be running QB power with Trevor.” The Chicago Bears offense figures to take on ...

SEATTLE — I wrote last week that success can prompt regret, using the Washington Huskies football team as Exhibit A. Despite having an improbable nine wins thus far — including one on the road against then-No. 6 Oregon — the string of victories had some players lamenting previous losses, particularly the 10-point defeat to Arizona State that cost them at any shot at a College Football Playoff ...

BERKELEY, Calif. — The play is called peanut punch, something UCLA practices repeatedly each week while teaching defenders how to smack the ball out of a player’s hands. For much of Friday afternoon, what happened was simply nuts. A field-goal try bounced off an upright. Three long touchdown passes gave California an 11-point lead over the heavily favored Bruins. There were times when it ...

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis entered Friday night’s game against the Gators as one of the nation’s most underappreciated players. Not anymore. With the Black Friday schedule all to himself, Travis rushed for a pair of first-half touchdowns and made multiple Houdini-like escapes to lead No. 16 FSU to a wild 45-38 win over Florida. The Seminoles (9-3) snapped a ...

AUSTIN, Texas — Late in Texas’ 38-27 victory Friday over Baylor, the crowd that remained at Royal-Memorial Stadium offered a spontaneous salute. “Bijan, Bijan, Bijan,” the crowd chanted, wanting one more touchdown from Bijan Robinson. Actually, it was the only thing that the junior running back didn’t deliver in what might have been his final home game. Robinson ran for 179 yards and two ...

The theme of the Dolphins’ defense this season has been evolution. Evolution sparked by the absence of cornerback Byron Jones and season-ending injuries to safety Brandon Jones and cornerback Nik Needham. The evolution that could take place with the team’s acquisition of outside linebacker Bradley Chubb. The defense will again seek to adapt, this time to the loss of defensive end Emmanuel ...

Fifty years after the game that changed his life, Anthony Davis sits in an office surrounded by a museum of his USC memorabilia, wondering what might've been if his biggest moment never materialized. The six touchdowns Davis scored on Notre Dame that day in December 1972 would go down as one of the greatest single-game performances in college football history, the piece de resistance of a ...
