No. 6 Washington continues dominance, routs California 38-7

As his freshman season has progressed, Washington’s Hunter Bryant has been fed more information, more responsibilities and ultimately more opportunity.

The potential of the Huskies newest offensive weapon finally flashed on Saturday night.

“There’s always that adjustment period where you’re not sure. A player is really good in high school but something doesn’t click,” Washington quarterback Jake Browning said. “But it definitely clicks for him.”

The Blue Devils drove into Virginia territory on their final possession with Jones completing four consecutive passes, but sacks by Chris Peace early in the drive and freshman linebacker Chris Snowden — on only his second play in the game — slowed the drive, and two incompletions turned the ball back to Virginia.

Virginia: With a running game that hasn’t yet proven reliable, Benkert’s accuracy Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Site becomes critical. He was way off early in the game, throwing two interceptions and fumbling once as both teams struggled, but once the short passing game started working, his confidence seemed to return and he carried the day.

Under Harbaugh, the Wolverines have not been shy about adding their voices to discussions outside of football.

Briscoe leads SHSU to 7th straight win over SFA 27-16

Jeremiah Briscoe threw for 325 yards and one score and ran for another as Sam Houston State knocked off Stephen F. Austin 27-16 in the 92nd Battle of the Piney Woods on Saturday.

Briscoe, who rushed once in the game, made that a good one as he dropped back to pass, found an opening on the left side and sprinted 26 yards for the final score with 4:55 left to secure SHSU’s seventh straight win over SFA. It is the longest win streak for either team in the series.

After Michigan’s Week 4 trip to Purdue, coach Jim Harbaugh made headlines when he complained that the Ross-Ade Stadium accommodations were not so accommodating, from a medical table “out of the 1920s” to a missing X-ray machine to a lack of air conditioning that sent some players to the team bus to cool off. He called for his fellow Big Ten coaches to join him in asking for improvements. Purdue quickly responded via a statement that it would never put player safety in jeopardy for the sake of gamesmanship. It pointed out that a Michigan staffer had done a walk-through of Ross-Ade in July and that its visiting team manual reads, in bold type “there is no air conditioning in the locker room.” A request can be made for temporary AC, but according to Purdue, Michigan filed no such request.

Over the past two weeks, dozens of coaches have been asked to address Harbaugh’s concerns. Some, including archrival Ohio State’s leader Urban Meyer, backed him up. Most, however, have Nike NFL Jerseys China shrugged it off, just as they have shrugged off old tables and no air conditioning for nearly 150 years of college football. That’s especially true for Cheap Jerseys NFL Captain Comeback’s coaching elders.

NFL Draft scouting: Pro scouts all over USC-Washington State

The following is a list of NFL teams Sporting News has learned will be at big college football games this week.

“The team is currently exploring a full rebrand, including new uniforms that will be unveiled in 2019 to coincide with the opening of the new LA Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park,” the team said in its statement.

As for Sunday, though β€” and for any game in the near future for which they’re forced to wear their new helmets with their blue jerseys β€” the Rams will continue to get these kinds of reactions.

“It’s definitely a challenge. It’s tough to already play a game Sunday and then be ready again for the following Sunday,” he said. “As I get older, too, I just see the difference, too. Just to prepare for a Thursday night game is totally a lot different.

“You’re on top of it right away. You’ve got to be on top of your body right away, starting yesterday, maybe do some overtime extra stuff tonight. But to be ready, to be prepared, you’ve got to go full in this week. Then in the back of your head you’ve got some rest over the weekend. So just go full in, getting ready for the game Thursday night, and you’ll be good.”

Entering Thursday night’s game, Gronkowski led the Patriots with 318 Cheap Jerseys Mastercard receiving yards this season. He also had 20 receptions and two touchdown catches in the Cheap Jerseys Online Wholesale first four games.

The Patriots expect Gronkowski and running back Rex Burkhead (ribs) to be ready for their next game in 10 days against the New York Jets, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
