Baylor expects Sam Ukwuachu to play in 2015

The Baylor Bears have been waiting for Sam Ukwuachu to take the field for the past couple of years and it looks like that time will finally come in 2015. After transferring from Boise State before the 2013 season, Ukwuachu was forced to sit out the year to satisfy NCAA transfer rules. The defensive end was then ruled ineligible for all of 2014 for an issue that was never made public...

WATCH: Baylor Kicker Spencer Evans Kicks 70-Yard Field Goal

Playing for the Baylor Bears has to be a lot of fun for most of the squad. The high-octane offense has to be a blast to be a part of and since the team often gets out to big leagues the defense can just pin its ears back and come after the quarterback. However, it is probably not too much fun for one guy--kicker Spencer Evans. Yeah, he gets to kick a ton of extra points, but where...

The current College Football Playoff four-team format is contracted for the next ten years.
