He will be coaching tonight after all!


Per SEC protocol, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban, has been cleared to return for tonight’s showdown against No. 3 Georgia  following his third consecutive negative test for COVID-19, the school’s athletic department announced this morning.

“Upon evaluation today, Coach Saban remains completely asymptomatic,” a statement from Dr. Jimmy Robinson, the team’s physician, said. “To address the potential for a false positive, the SEC Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force Protocol allows for follow-up testing to clear the individual’s return to activity. That protocol requires three negative PCR tests taken 24 hours apart.”

Saban and Greg Byrne, the school’s director of athletics, both tested positive for the virus, the university said on Wednesday. Saban, 68, said he had no symptoms related to Covid and immediately isolated at home after receiving the positive test.

Alabama is unbeaten on the season at 3-0, and ranked second in the Associated Press national poll. Georgia, also 3-0, is ranked third.


College Football Upset, Saturday, October 10, 2020: No. 21 Texas A&M 41, No. 4 Florida 38

Oct 10, 2020




BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION (AP) — Isaiah Spiller rushed for 174 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 21 Texas A&M beat fourth-ranked Florida 41-38 on Seth Small’s 26-yard field goal as time expired Saturday.

QB Kellen Mond silenced his critics by coming up huge in upset win

Big win for Jimbo Fisher in building the Aggies program

RB Isaiah Spiller ran past, through and over Florida's defense

Spiller helped get the Aggies get into position for Small’s decisive kick, giving Jimbo Fisher his first win over a top-five team since taking over as Texas A&M coach.

QB Kellen Mond, who has been criticized all during his career in College Station that he isnt a great QB, can’t win the big games or he disappears when the Aggies needs him the most, showed he is great when needed. He passed for 338 yards and three touchdowns to help the Aggies (2-1, 2-1 SEC) down the previously undefeated Gators (2-1, 2-1)

Florida quarterback Kyle Trask had 312 yards passing and four TDs, but the Gators were done in by the late mistake and another poor performance by their defense.

Caleb Chapman finished with nine receptions for 151 yards and two touchdowns as the Aggies bounced back from last week’s lopsided loss to No. 2 Alabama.

Team Notes

  • The victory over No. 4 Florida is A&M’s first win over a top-five team since defeating No. 3 Auburn on the road, 41-38, in 2014 and the first top-five win at Kyle Field since knocking off No. 1 Oklahoma, 30-26, in 2002.
  • Sophomore RB Isaiah Spiller’s 174 yards on the ground and sophomore WR Caleb Chapman’s 151 receiving yards in the game marked the first time in program history A&M has had a 150-yard receiver and 150-yard rusher in the same game.
  • This was also the first time the Aggies have had a 100-yard receiver and 100-yard rusher in the same game since Jhamon Ausbon (109 receiving yards) and Isaiah Spiller (116 rushing yards) each passed the century mark against Lamar in 2019.
  • The Aggies tallied 543 yards of total offense against the Gators, the most in regulation in a SEC game since putting up 559 against Tennessee in 2016.
  • This was the first time since Oct. 4, 2014 that the Aggies saw four players finish with over 50 receiving yards in an SEC game – C. Chapman (151), A. Smith (53), J. Wydermyer (53), C. Lane (52).
  • Spiller’s 174 rushing yards against No. 4 Florida marked the first time an Aggie has rushed for over 100 yards in a game against a top-10 opponent since Trayveon Williams ran for 198 yards in the win over No. 8 LSU to conclude the 2018 regular season.
  • Today’s captains against Florida were S Keldrick Carper, DL Micheal Clemons and OL Carson Green.


Individual Notes

  • Senior QB Kellen Mond became A&M’s all-time leader in career passing yards against Florida, as his 338 yards in the game upped his career total to 8,224 yards. He also holds the program career records in completions (680) and attempts (1,168).
  • This was the seventh 300-yard passing game of Mond’s career and the second time he has thrown for over 300 yards in back-to-back games.
  • Mond’s three touchdown passes in the victory matched his regulation career high.
  • Mond moved to 24-13 as a starter, which ties him for fourth all-time at A&M with Bucky Richardson (24-6-1).
  • Sophomore RB Isaiah Spiller recorded the seventh 100-yard rushing game of his career, second of the season, finishing with 174 yards, 133 coming in the second half. After passing the century mark on the ground only once against an SEC opponent as a freshman, he has done so twice in league play through three games this year.
  • Spiller scored a pair of second-half touchdowns on the ground, marking the third multi-touchdown game of his career.
  • Sophomore WR Caleb Chapman set career highs in every receiving category, finishing with 151 yards on nine catches and a pair of touchdowns. This marked the first time an A&M receiver has had over 150 yards in a game since Christian Kirk hauled in 189 yards against Wake Forest in 2017.
  • Freshman WR Chase Lane scored the first touchdown is his career on A&M’s opening drive with an 11-yard reception in the end zone.
  • Senior LB Buddy Johnson matched his career high with 11 tackles against Florida, marking the fourth time in his career he has reached double figures in the category and the third straight game he has led the team this season.
  • Junior PK Seth Small’s two made field goals upped his career makes total to 42, which ties him for sixth all-time at A&M




College Football Upset, Saturday, October 10, 2020: unranked Oklahoma beats archrival #22 Texas in Four overtimes, 53-45

October 10, 2020


DALLAS – Spencer Rattler had quite the first experience in a most unusual version of the Red River rivalry.

WR Drake Stoops, son of former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, caught game-winning TD pass

The Oklahoma freshman threw a 25-yard scoring pass to Drake Stoops in the fourth overtime and the Sooners survived a late rally from No. 22 Texas in regulation for a 53-45 victory Saturday.

Rattler sat most of the second quarter in favor of Tanner Mordecai after an interception and a fumble, but came back with two of his three scoring passes in overtime as the Sooners (2-2, 1-2 Big 12) bounced back from their first back-to-back losses in the regular season since 1999.

The dramatic ending was quite familiar.

Sam Ehlinger, who had a career-high four rushing touchdowns, threw two TD passes in the final 3:28 of regulation after what appeared to be a game-sealing interception by Woodi Washington in the end zone with the Sooners leading 31-17 with five minutes remaining.

But Ehlinger’s pass was intercepted in end zone by Tre Brown after Rattler’s toss to former OU coach Bob Stoops’ son, leaving the senior with a 1-4 record against his biggest rival, including a loss in the 2018 Big 12 championship game.

The Longhorns (2-2, 1-2) also left themselves little hope of playing for a Big 12 title, much less being part of the College Football Playoff conversation.

“We showed the football team we are there at the end when we stay out of our own way, without penalties, a lot of different things, mistakes that are self-inflicted,” said Ehlinger, who threw 53 passes and had 23 carries for a career-high 112 yards. “It’s unfortunate. We’ve got to get better.”

Rattler was 23 of 35 for 209 yards, and T.J. Pledger rushed for 131 yards and two touchdowns.

Ehlinger threw for 287 yards, while his top three running backs — Ingram, Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson — combined for just 11 carries and 29 yards.



College Football Upset, Saturday, October 10, 2020: Eliah Drinkwitz wins first game in Missouri’s 45-41 win over #17 LSU


Missouri head coach Eliah Drinkwitz

Missouri QB Connor Bazelak














Bazelak is the hero with four touchdowns to lead Tigers to upset win, defense makes huge goal-line stand


COLUMBIA, Mo. – Mizzou Football knocked off No. 17/16 LSU in a wild shootout, 45-41, Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium as head coach Eliah Drinkwitz secured his first victory at the school in dramatic fashion. Mizzou (1-2) used an epic goal-line stop at the 1-yard line to down the defending National Champions in the final seconds. In a game that was originally slated to be played in Baton Rouge, La., and moved to Columbia due to Hurricane Delta, Mizzou ripped off 586 total yards of offense, including 406 through the air in RS freshman QB Connor Bazelak’s second career start.

Mizzou’s defense limited LSU to 49 total rushing yards as the Tigers (1-2) in Black and Gold overcame three turnovers to claim the heavyweight bout and beat a defending national champion for the first time since edging No. 5 Notre Dame on Sept. 9, 1978. Mizzou’s 45 points marked the most scored against LSU in regulation since Florida in 2008.

Mizzou senior RB Larry Rountree III ran for 119 yards on 18 attempts, becoming just the fourth Tiger ever to rush for 3,000 career yards, and just the third running back.

Bazelak was brilliant in his first start of the season, connecting on 29-of-34 passes for 406 yards and four touchdowns, doing so down three starting wideouts. He completed 15 consecutive passes at one point.
