Tre Madden was in full pads Tuesday morning on Howard Jones Field. He was a minimal participant as the USC tailbacks went through individual drills. The road to recovery for the USC tailback, slowed by a turf toe, has been a slow, frustrating experience. Madden felt healthy enough to take the field Tuesday but by the end of individual drills he started to feel "sore." His...

Oklahoma-TCU Preview

(AP) - TCU long has been more than a mere annoyance to Oklahoma. TCU won in shocking fashion in Norman in 2005, one of only two home losses to nonconference foes the Sooners have suffered during coach Bob Stoops' 16 seasons at Oklahoma. Last season, the visiting Horned Frogs pushed Oklahoma to the limit before the Sooners won 20-17. A year earlier, in the first Big 12 Conference...

Terps quarterback situation unclear vs. Ohio State

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- No Maryland quarterback has started every game in a season since 2006, a streak that will continue if injured C.J. Brown can't go Saturday against No. 20 Ohio State. Brown left Saturday's 37-15 victory at Indiana with a sprained left wrist, and his status for Maryland's long awaited Big Ten home opener against the Buckeyes (3-1) remains in doubt...

Unbeaten Georgia Tech looks to end skid vs. Miami

ATLANTA (AP) Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson doesn't think his team is too excited about its successful start. It's been 10 days since the Yellow Jackets (4-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) rallied for an upset win at Virginia Tech, and Johnson still sees plenty of mistakes that need correcting. Those concerns come more into focus with Miami (3-2, 1-1) visiting this weekend...

Mike Leach on technology and dating: 'It's going to be tough to perpetuate the species'

Washington State Cougars coach Mike Leach may well have talked about the game of football at his Monday news conference, but it was his dire warning regarding the fate of the entire human species that's still ringing in our ears. No, there was little talk of climate change, meteor strikes or Skynet. But the coach does, however, apparently have major concerns about the future...

No. 25 TCU Horned Frogs are still quite defensive

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Something is very familiar for No. 25 TCU, even with all those changes on offense. The Horned Frogs are dominating on defense like they have so often under Gary Patterson, who was their demanding defensive coordinator before becoming head coach nearly 14 years ago. ''I think it's the same old coach. He wants to be the best defense in the nation...

Florida begins stretch that could define season

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida coach Will Muschamp calls every game a must-win. Following a lopsided loss at Alabama, it's really starting to look and feel that way for Muschamp and the Gators.

Arizona's unheralded Wright proves doubters wrong

TUCSON, Ariz. -- If Scooby Wright III was to ever be a college football coach, it's very clear one of the first places he'd look to recruit is Tiny Town, USA. Ordinary,Va. Little Hope, Ala. If the guy can play, he'll be there. Why, Ariz.? Why not? Because you never know when you'll find that hidden gem of a player. That "sleeper," as Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez...

Big Ten West teams step up

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) One of the prevailing notions heading into the season was that the Big Ten East Division could end up being a lot better than the West. It didn't look that way last weekend. Northwestern buried Penn State as road underdogs. Minnesota did the same to reeling Michigan in Ann Arbor. Nebraska continued its unbeaten start with a rout of Illinois and Iowa won...

Bearcats dealing with loss of a brother

CINCINNATI -- When the phone rings at 2 a.m., as Tommy Tuberville's did last year on Sept. 22, it's rarely a good sign.

Michigan Interviewed Kevin Sumlin In 2011, Decided To Hire Brady Hoke Instead

How different would the Michigan football program currently look if, back in 2011, the Wolverines’ athletic department didn’t hire Brady Hoke, and, instead, went with a young, up-and-coming coach like, say, Kevin Sumlin?  That’s, of course, impossible to figure out, but Michigan fans were taunted with that possibility on today’s edition of Fox Sports’ “The Audible...

Cincinnati must fix defense as it starts AAC play

CINCINNATI (AP) In their biggest game of the season, the Cincinnati Bearcats' defense was exposed. The Bearcats gave up an NCAA-record 45 first downs and 710 yards during a 50-28 loss at Ohio State on Saturday. They couldn't stop the run or the pass. Cincinnati (2-1) needs to fix that porous defense - and quickly - as it opens play in the American Athletic Conference. The...

Could Ducks have revenge in mind against Arizona?

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Things got ugly for the Oregon Ducks very quickly the last time they played Arizona. Marcus Mariota was intercepted on the first play from scrimmage. Bralon Addison dropped a pass near the sideline and Arizona cornerback Shaquille Richardson grabbed the carom, flipping it back to teammate Scooby Wright as he was falling out of bounds. That ended Mariota's Pac...

Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon has been on fire lately Prior to last Saturday, this weekend’s contest against Northwestern looked like it would be simple for Wisconsin.
