How to Beat 'Bama: Hit, Think, Pray

They say no team is unbeatable. They apparently haven't seen Alabama play recently.

Tulane's Walker to be moved, continue therapy

Tulane officials say seriously injured football player Devon Walker will be moved to a new facility within the next two days as he continues therapy for his fractured spine.

No. 6 Sooners get first big test in No. 15 K-State

After getting nudged down the rankings in the first three weeks of the season, the Sooners (2-0) emerge from an off week to play No. 15 Kansas State (3-0) on Saturday night in Norman.

Noles defense looks to slow down Tigers' Watkins 

Watkins blew past Florida State defenders last year in just his fourth game as a collegiate player. He caught seven passes for 141 yards and two long touchdowns in the Tigers' 35-30 win over the Seminoles on their way to the Atlantic Coast Conference title.

UCLA loses freshman CB Adams for rest of year

UCLA freshman cornerback Ishmael Adams will have shoulder surgery Friday and is out for the rest of the season, coach Jim Mora said.

Quotable:

Just the same, Chizik is still searching for the kind of any-given-Saturday magic that Tuberville hasn’'t lost. A year ago, Texas Tech lost its last five games. The game before that, the unranked Red Raiders beat No. 3 Oklahoma 41-38 in Norman, no less, to end OU’'s 39-game home winning streak.

LSU comes to Auburn sporting a No. 2 ranking and the nation’'s longest regular-season winning streak at 16 games. The visiting Tigers are favored by an astounding 18 ½ points.

Can Auburn bring back the magic Saturday night? The only way to answer that question is with a question. Can Auburn bring back Tuberville for a command performance for one night only?
