Sooners' Sterling Shepard landed on my camera, and I feel bad about that

I have been shooting football on the sidelines just about every weekend for 26 years. I have shot every level of this sport, from pee-wee to NFL and everything in between. There have been close calls, but I can say that in those 26 years I have never been hit by a player. On Saturday while photographing Oklahoma’s game against Kansas State, my luck ran out. I’m sure that if...

Andersen lays down the gauntlet to Badgers youngsters

The Wisconsin Badgers football season hasn’t exactly gone to plan, sitting at 4-2 and entering an interesting stretch against the two newcomers — Maryland and Rutgers. After seeing Maryland take down Iowa and Rutgers get to bowl eligibility, Wisconsin can’t expect more of the same from the first half to work in the second half. Wisconsin is far from a perfect team, and it has...

Todd Graham Expects Taylor Kelly, Not Mike Bercovici, To Start Against Washington

Most teams would be absolutely thrilled to get a star quarterback back from injury at a crucial point in the season. Arizona State will certainly be excited if Taylor Kelly can play this weekend, but there is one issue…his back-up Mike Bercovici has been playing exceptionally well. The junior has started three games for the Sun Devils, going 2-1, and has thrown for 1,243 yards...

Records mean little to Abdullah if Neb doesn't win

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Ameer Abdullah says this is no time for him to celebrate his personal achievements, not with six weeks left in the regular season.

Video: Nick Saban, Butch Jones Discuss Lane Kiffin’s Return To Tennessee This Weekend

Perhaps the biggest subplot of this Saturday’s game between Tennessee and Alabama is that it’s Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin’s return to Knoxville.

Sooners in odd spot in Big 12 race

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma is in an unfamiliar situation, seemingly out of Big 12 Conference title discussion in October. Two missed field goals, a blocked extra point and an interception return for a touchdown by Kansas State hurt the Sooners in a 31-30 loss on Saturday.
