Bama Fans Survive Plane Crash, Make it to Game

An amazing story of survival. Think you're a big Alabama fan? How about living through a plane crash on your way to the game, and still making kickoff. It actually happened on Saturday.

Texas and West Virginia Defenses Struggling

What if No. 8 West Virginia and No. 11 Texas played Saturday and decided not to bring their defenses?

Mountaineer fans just can’t resist their inner firebugs

Morgantown authorities are investigating seven street fires set after the West Virginia-Baylor football game.

Miami quickly shifts its focus to No. 9 Notre Dame

Stephen Morris had just set a slew of records and thrown a 62-yard pass to win a game in the final seconds, easily the highlight of his career as Miami's quarterback.

As the SEC angles for yet another title rematch, we restore SANITY

Dennis Dodd pleads for anything but another all-SEC title game.


The Yellow Jackets are 4-1 over the Tigers since Swinney took over as coach midway through the 2008 season, including beating Clemson in the 2009 ACC championship game.

Georgia Tech ended the Tigers 8-0 start a year ago, a defeat Clemson struggled to get past as it ended the regular season on a 1-3 slide. There were plenty of fans who openly wondered if the Florida State loss two weeks ago would lead to a similar free fall.

Clemson offensive lineman Brandon Thomas said this year's group showed things would be different this season.

''We put last year behind us,'' he said. ''This is a new team.''

The damn Mountaineers may torch the entire state (butt-load of coal under there) if they make it to the BCSNC.
Here's hoping Bama's there with them to help them chill.
