Alabama Offense Shines in 44-13 Win

The latest renewal of the storied "Third Saturday in October" rivalry was marked by an explosive night by the Alabama offense.

Brian VanGorder finds some positives in Auburn's defense in loss at Vandy

The Tigers' defensive coordinator says his players are becoming smarter, getting better in the defense.

Cutcliffe's vision becomes Duke's reality

Duke becomes bowl eligible for the first time since 1994 after knocking off rival UNC.

No. 8 Oregon State off to best start since 1907

Oregon State's defense helped out when quarterback Cody Vaz struggled in the rain, and the No. 8 Beavers remained undefeated with a 21-7 victory over Utah on Saturday night.

No. 12 Florida State starts slow, overpowers rival Miami

EJ Manuel threw for 229 yards, Devonta Freeman ran for a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns and No. 12 Florida State overcame a shaky start to beat Miami 33-20 on Saturday night.

Quotable:

Don't get the wrong idea: Notre Dame has a solid team, with a stellar defense and a chance to someday again become a major player.

Yet, only a leprechaun would believe 7-0 Notre Dame can now go win at Norman on its way to a season-ending closeout victory at USC.

It is only muddling the message to mention Notre Dame has history on its side. The Irish are 8-1 all time against Oklahoma and have never lost in Norman (Oklahoma's lone series triumph was at Notre Dame in 1956).
