West Albany junior quarterback Michael Cale threw four touchdown passes on Friday night as the Bulldogs earned a 28-0 victory over visiting Lebanon.
LEBANON — Finally getting an opportunity to take on an opponent for the first time in 16 months, Lebanon High finished with a spark but came u…
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers kept the Kansas City Chiefs from repeating as Super Bowl champions. Check out highlights from Super Bowl LV.
Cam Newton isn't the long-term answer at quarterback and Bill Belichick clearly doesn't believe in Jarrett Stidham. Jones benefits from a great supporting cast in Tuscaloosa, but he's an accurate, decisive passer who had 4,500 yards (first in the nation), 41 touchdown passes (second in the nation) against only four interceptions and a QBR of 96.1 (first in the nation). He finished third in the Heisman Trophy race. Top needs: QB, WR, LB
I'm going to go out on a limb and say Taylor Heinicke isn't the quarterback of the future here. Trask has legit pocket presence and a surprising touch for such a strong arm. He had a horrible Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma, but that doesn't erase a Heisman-worthy season (he finished fourth). He had 43 touchdown passes (first in the nation) against only eight interceptions, 4,283 passing yards (second in the nation) and a QBR of 88.3 (sixth in the nation). Top needs: OL, WR, QB
I imagine the Eagles will release Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson this offseason. I don't suspect Waddle's broken ankle will impact his draft stock much. He was off to an incredible start — 25 receptions, 557 yards and four touchdowns in four games — after showing promise as a sophomore before hurting himself. Top needs: OL, DB, LB
Is it me or does it seem like the Eagles are always in need of help at receiver? The Heisman winner took his game to another level after Waddle was sidelined in 2020 — he had 1,300 yards on 72 receptions and 19 touchdowns in his last eight games. The only blemish is his size. Top needs: WR, CB, LB
Pitts could prove to hard to pass on if he's available, especially if resigning Hunter Henry proves too difficult. The Mackey Award winner is a matchup nightmare. He's definitely more receiver than complete tight end, but he's a valuable chess piece either way — his 17.9 yards per reception and 12 touchdowns in only eight games are indicative of that. Top needs: OL, CB, Edge
Is it me or does it seem like the Eagles are always in need of help at receiver? I don't suspect Waddle's broken ankle will impact his draft stock much. He's already healed and was off to an incredible start — 25 receptions, 557 yards and four touchdowns in four games — after showing promise as a sophomore receiver and return man. A healthy Waddle is the most explosive all-around athlete at receiver in this class. Top needs: WR, CB, LB
An Oregon State football season that once had so much promise ended with the Beavers stumbling their way through a blowout Saturday night.
Oregon’s offense was producing at a high clip Friday night but couldn’t get a single first down that could have gone a long way toward securin…
The Washington State football team arrived in Corvallis with one of the top offenses in the Pacific-10 Conference through the first seven game…
The NFC champs have been busy right out of the gate. GM John Lynch sent All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to Indy in a surprising blockbuster for this pick. Ruggs is pure electricity with the football in his hands. He scored 25 total touchdowns on 100 touches in his Crimson Tide career. Top needs: WR, CB, OL.
All-Pro running back Derrick Henry could command $14-$16 million per season as a free agent. There have been very few collegiate tailbacks as productive as Taylor (6,174 rushing yards and 50 rushing touchdowns in three seasons in Madison). Top needs: Edge, OT, RB
An offense featuring Josh Allen, Devin Singletary and Shenault could get really creative. His size (6-foot-2, 225 pounds), speed (he could run a sub-4.4 40 at the combine) and nose for the end zone (he has 10 receiving and seven rushing touchdowns the past two seasons) could catapult him into the top-15 discussion. Top needs: WR, OG, LB
The Dolphins backfield has been a mess all year. A quarterback (Ryan Fitzpatrick) led them in rushing yards (243) and rushing touchdowns (four) while a wide receiver (Albert Wilson) had their longest rush from scrimmage (28 yards). Swift is a shifty back able to bounce it outside or handle the rigors of running between the tackles. He's also a weapon out of the backfield (he has 56 receptions and four touchdowns the last two seasons). Top needs: QB, OL, Edge
GM Chris Ballard took a chance on Tyreek Hill when he was the Director of Football Operations in Kansas City. Like Hill, Ruggs is pure electricity with the football in his hands. He scored 25 total touchdowns on 100 touches in his Crimson Tide career. Top needs: DT, WR, Edge

The 2-point conversion after touchdowns, used in the college game and in the AFL during the 1960s, was adopted in 1994. Browns punter Tom Tupa scored the first one on a fake kick, when he took the hold and carried the ball into the end zone. He scored on three such 2-point plays that year.
1978: Atlanta overcame a 17-6 deficit in the final three minutes, completing the comeback on a last-second, 57-yard desperation play called "Big Ben Right." QB Steve Bartkowski heaved the ball down the right sideline but short of the end zone — as designed. Receiver Wallace Francis leaped to tip the ball into the air and trailing receiver Alfred Jackson came down with it at the 10 before scampering into the end zone.
1993: The Packers and Chiefs have only played 12 times, including their Super Bowl matchup, but none of the other meetings was meaningful until this one. Greg Hill had two touchdowns running and one through the air, helping Kansas City to a 27-20 win between a pair of playoff teams.
EUGENE — Mike Leach has been on the jubilant side of the postgame handshake with three different Oregon head coaches over the last four seasons.
