Gators Prove They Can Finish the Job

The final verdict was delivered when Gators receiver Frankie Hammond took the short pass from Jeff Driskel, broke a tackle and then another, and finally found the end zone.

LSU battling injury bug before and during victory vs. Idaho

Wright, Ware, Loston sit game out, Lonergan plays little.

Go figure: The weird, wacky and wow of the weekend

A look at some noteworthy performances and accomplishments, by the numbers.

ULM's Browning almost shocks another SEC opponent

He almost did it again. Coming off of a career game against Arkansas last weekend, Louisiana-Monroe quarterback Kolton Browning put together another strong performance against the Tigers on Saturday.

Ohio State edges Cal, but effort raises doubts about Buckeyes' resurgence

No. 12 Ohio State survived feisty Cal in a big 35-28 victory in Columbus. But three games into the season, it's obvious Urban Meyer's squad has work to do

Quotable:

Yeah, it's over.

The idea of a perfect Trojans season. The idea of an easy Matt Barkley Heisman. The lovely notion that a college football team can come off two years of probation and dominate the football world as if it never left.

Oh, it's ugly.

Just three games into what was supposed to be a dream season, the Trojans were slapped awake and senseless Saturday by Stanford in a 21-14 loss that felt like a 12th-round knockout.
