They had no first downs. With the offense stagnant, luckily the Honey Badger made a play. Tyrann Mathieu, who is unstoppable on synthetic turf, returned [...]

Championship weekend was spectacular…if you like lots of scoring. And, if you don’t, you’ll probably get your wish when LSU and Alabama meet in the BCS title game on January 9, 2012. But this weekend showcased some great football…HUGE upset in C-USA, as previously undefeated Houston was crushed by Southern Mississippi…and favored teams not covering the spread, but doing...
