Baylor's defense, ranked among the worst in nation, gave up a 14-0 lead but forced...

LSU should be facing Oklahoma State (which trailed ‘Bama in the computer rankings by about a nose hair) on January 9th. Pure. Simple. Instead, the Cowboys will play a thrilling matchup with Stanford on January 2, a game I venture will have a larger national following...
