Notre Dame changes QBs, can't change luck in 17-10 loss to Stanford

Notre Dame tried everything, even a quarterback switch.

But the downward spiral continued for the Irish.

Stanford center Jesse Burkett recovered a fumble in the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter, and the Cardinal held on to win 17-10 in front of 80,795 fans at Notre Dame Stadium.

Michigan fan leaves miniature flag on yard of Urban Meyer's home

Headed for a potentially epic edition of The Game, one Michigan fan took the rivalry seriously enough to head behind enemy lines -- and directly into Urban Meyer's yard.

No. 1 Alabama extends win streak against No. 13 LSU, 10-0

Alabama's visit to LSU on Saturday night should have been shot in black and white. It should have been captured on spools of film, developed in a darkroom and then shipped to Tuscaloosa and Baton Rouge theaters to be shown between "Steamboat Willie" and newsreel updates from Normandy.

Michigan, Clemson and Washington all fell from the ranks of the unbeaten this past Saturday. While Alabama just keeps on winning.

Losing to Kansas should be Charlie Strong's last straw

Texas president Greg Fenves and athletic director Mike Perrin are probably thinking the same thing right now: It’s time for a coaching change.

Charlie Strong made that path painfully obvious with the Longhorns’ 24-21 overtime loss to a 1-9 Kansas team Saturday night. The embattled head coach’s time at Texas is likely coming to an end.

Temple football coach Matt Rhule going to Baylor

Matt Rhule, who turned Temple from a two-win team to a conference football champion in four seasons, has parlayed that success into the new head coaching job at Baylor.

Rhule, whose hiring was announced by the Big 12 school on Tuesday, departed in the same sudden, swift way, his team scored in beating Navy, 34-10, in the American Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday.

Army defeats Navy to halt 14-year losing streak in series

The Army football team and its fans around the world can finally rejoice.

No longer will they have to listen to barbs from Navy or lament another missed opportunity in the biggest game of the year.

At long last, The Streak is over.

No. 10 FSU wins wild Orange Bowl over No. 6 Michigan, 33-32

Renegade, the horse that serves as Florida State's mascot, took an uncharacteristic tumble while prancing on the field before kickoff.

The horse got up and was just fine.

Hours later, Florida State collapsed -- and like Renegade, recovered with a flourish.

From written off to Rose Bowl, USC and Penn State followed similar paths

September couldn't end soon enough for USC, and by now, the Trojans' miserable 1-3 opening month is well-documented. When the calendar turned to October, the idea that the season would end with a trip to the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual was inconceivable.

Alabama can't complete perfect season

Oh, those walk-on wide receivers.

Clemson had one catching and one coaching on Monday night, and turned it into a national championship - with one second to spare.

Clemson Tigers pull out upset in National Championship, beating Alabama Crimson Tide 35-31

Thriller. Revenge. Love. Those three words often describe the premise to a blockbuster movie. Instead, it describes the best game of the 2016-17 NCAA football season; a 35-31 Clemson Tiger victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Do you remember 2005 Texas and Vince Young against USC? 41-38

The only thing this year was some of the penalties especially the last pass interference call. I thought
he fell more than he got pulled and the penalty didn't happen in the end zone. I'm not a believer in
having the ref's decide the game.
No one has ever bet enough on a winning horse.

In Big Ten, there's Ohio State and Michigan, and then there's everybody else

National signing day approaches with Ohio State and Michigan leading the Big Ten charge. The two rivals are both on track to finish in the top five of ESPN’s recruiting rankings, something no Big Ten tandem has done in the same year since the rankings began in 2006.
