The free-falling Minnesota Vikings keep breaking new ground in football—today figuring out that the ball doesn’t even need to be snapped in order for them to turn it over. That’s the Midwest work ethic in action!
Ottawa is stomping Calgary in tonight’s Canadian Super Bowl, which is one of the most entertaining football events of the year but which gets next to no promotion or notice by ESPN, the CFL’s U.S. broadcast partner. That’s a shame, because more people could be watching great things like this. Or—depending on your…

Texas running back D’Onta Foreman was a profile in courage as he dragged half a dozen Texas Tech defenders to the goal line.

A ten-play, 78-yard Tennessee drive went for naught after Jalen Hurd dropped the ball upon being surprised by a hit at the goal line by a Georgia defender. The play preserved a 10-0 Georgia lead—now 17-0—over the inexplicably undefeated Volunteers.
