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.

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.

Brian Kelly takes blame for Notre Dame's 4-8 season

Brian Kelly isn't making any excuses for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish's performance this season, saying all the blame falls on his shoulders.

"There are no bad football teams," Kelly told reporters Monday. "There's just poorly led football teams. I led this team poorly."

Notre Dame coach Ara Parseghian's legend won't soon be forgotten

Few coaches have been a better fit at Notre Dame than Ara Parseghian. This was no mere fit; this was a bespoke suit, although only as a figure of speech. The Parseghian who came to South Bend in December 1963 never stood still long enough for a tailor to measure him.

After Irma, Miami returns to practice, in Orlando

Miami began practice Sunday surrounded by palm trees and sunny, warm weather, but the football program was 235 miles away from home.

While its Coral Gables campus remains closed and many parts of South Florida deal with continued power loss and cleanup after Hurricane Irma, the football team began to take the slow steps toward normalcy by returning to practice at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

Washington State joins the playoff conversation with win over USC

As expected, Friday night's showdown between No. 5 USC and No. 16 Washington State featured a College Football Playoff contender and a Heisman Trophy candidate.

Not as expected: The Cougars are that team and their quarterback, Luke Falk, is that candidate.

'He was our King Arthur': In letters, former Notre Dame players honor the late Ara Parseghian

When legendary Notre Dame football coach Ara Parseghian fell ill this past summer, many former players inquired about seeing him, perhaps wanting to tell him goodbye one last time.

Parseghian, who had developed an infection after hip surgery, wasn't physically strong enough to accept visitors, so his family told the players to write him letters. Parseghian's wife, Katie, and his children promised the players that he would hear their words.

I hope the Buckeyes get their s%*t together, if they keep playing like they have been this season will be disappointing. Perhaps the dismantling of Rutgers 56-0 and Urban's coaching always helps.

No. 7 Georgia rolls to 41-0 shutout of Tennessee

There would be no frantic finishes or dramatic comebacks in the latest edition of the Georgia-Tennessee rivalry.

The seventh-ranked Bulldogs made sure of it.

Jake Fromm threw a touchdown pass and ran for two more scores Saturday as No. 7 Georgia rolled to a 41-0 blowout of Tennessee. The Volunteers were shut out for the first time since 1994 and suffered their most one-sided home loss since 1905.
