Bama's McCarron practices, feels 'good'

AJ McCarron is OK. Really, he's fine. Alabama's starting quarterback spoke with the media on Tuesday about the injury he suffered against Missouri on Saturday and the report that he torn his meniscus.

No. 2 BCS ranking means Florida football back in spotlight

This season has been one of tests for Florida. UF visited Texas A&M and the 12th Man, traveled to Knoxville to face pass-happy Tennessee and hosted a top-five team that dominated them just a year ago in LSU.

No. 13 WVU prepared for No. 4 Kansas State

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen was not pleased with the Mountaineers’ play in their 49-14 loss to Texas Tech Saturday. “I am not happy with how we played on all three sides of the ball.

How the mighty have fallen: Tigers take quick tumble since 2010 national title season

The Crimson Tide Nation understandably could scoff at that premise. Alabama's defense is No. 1 in almost every statistical category except shutting down Iran's potential nuclear threat. And that's probably only because the Pentagon has yet to put Bama boss Nick Saban on speed dial. At least as far as we know.
