TCU vs Iowa State: Football, Game, Live, Stream Watch Free

TCU vs Iowa State: TCU has won three consecutive games in the series against Texas for the first time since winning four straight from 1935 to ’38.

TCU vs Iowa State

Two game times remain to be announced for TCU — the Oklahoma game in Norman on Nov. 11 and the Texas Tech game in Lubbock on Nov. 18.

The regular season finale against Baylor on Black Friday, Nov. 24, has an 11 a.m. kickoff. The biggest thing that jumps out at Gary Patterson when he watches Iowa State? The big guys that jump.

No. 4 TCU (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) at No. 25 Iowa State (5-2, 3-1)

Kickoff: 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Jack Trice Stadium, Ames, Iowa

TV: WFAA/Ch. 8 or ESPN2

TCU vs Iowa State

The Cyclones boast four receivers who go 6-foot-1 or better, including their top pass-catcher, 6-6 Hakeem Butler. Their leading touchdown receiver is 6-5 Allen Lazard, who has five.

Next is 6-1 Marchie Murdock with four touchdowns. Then 6-4 Matthew Eaton with three.

The four 6-footers have combined for 15 touchdown catches. And it’s not all in the red zone. Butler has a 74-yard touchdown reception, and Murdock has a 43-yard score.

“These guys do a great job of creating space because of their size and what they do,” Patterson said. “They require a different type of coverage. They do a great job of that. Two years ago, we really struggled a lot with Lazard and the group.”

Lazard is Iowa State’s all-time receptions leader, and he leads the nation with a 42-game receptions streak. Two years ago in Ames, he caught five passes for 147 yards against TCU, including a 74-yard touchdown. Last year in Fort Worth, he was limited to one catch for eight yards.

Patterson called the Iowa State receivers one of the top skill groups in the Big 12 and praised their work in Iowa State’s 5-2 start under second-year coach Matt Campbell.

“Coach Campbell has put them in situations where they can do what they do best,” Patterson said.

The Horned Frogs have only one 6-foot corner. That’s starter Jeff Gladney, a sophomore who is 6-foot. The other starter, Ranthony Texada, is listed at 5-10.
Prime time for Texas

Make it another prime-time game for TCU vs Iowa State.

ESPN chose a 6:15 p.m. kickoff for the Horned Frogs’ game against Texas on Nov. 4 at Amon G. Carter Stadium. It will be the second consecutive night game in Fort Worth for TCU. Last week, the Frogs blanked Kansas 43-0 to remain undefeated.

TCU vs Iowa State: TCU leads 7-1, including victories in the last four meetings. Iowa State’s win came in the Horned Frogs’ Big 12 home opener in 2012. TCU leads 4-1 in the Big 12 series. TCU won season openers against the Cyclones at home in 1995 and in Ames in 1998. TCU also won the Houston Bowl against the Cyclones in 2005 on a late kick by Peter Lococo.

Week 9 – Notre Dame vs NC State: Live, Stream, Football, Game

Notre Dame vs NC State: Outside of the occasional intentional grounding call or key fourth down play, the line of scrimmage – and more specifically, what goes on along it – isn’t normally a star during college football broadcasts.

That may be different on Saturday when the 14th-ranked NC State Wolfpack visit No. 9 Notre Dame (3:30 p.m., WRAL-TV).

Notre Dame vs NC State

Logan Zone: NCSU facing ‘a supreme challenge’ this week vs Notre Dame

NC State head coach Dave Doeren said he’s expecting the contest between his defensive line and Notre Dame’s offensive line to be a “heavyweight battle.”

“You’re getting to watch the sixth-ranked rushing offense with Notre Dame and the sixth-ranked rushing defense with NC State. They have four senior offensive linemen, we’ve got four senior defensive linemen,” Doeren said. “I’m excited just to watch the line of scrimmage in this game.”

Notre Dame vs NC State

If the Wolfpack expects to go on the road and pick up their seventh win of the season, they’ll need to at least slow down the Irish run game, something only Georgia, and to a lesser extent Michigan State, have been able to do so far this season.

Notre Dame has rushed for at least 300 yards in its last three games, all dominant wins over Miami (Ohio), North Carolina and Southern California. Earlier this season, the Irish ran for 422 yards against Temple and an other-worldly 515 against Boston College.

Only the third-ranked Bulldogs truly slowed down the Irish rushing attack. In Georgia’s 20-19 win on Sept. 9, Notre Dame tallied just 55 yards on 37 attempts.

The production hasn’t just come from running back Josh Adams, who is fourth nationally in yards per rush (9.21). Quarterback Brandon Wimbush averages a robust 6.2 yards per rush and has more than 500 rushing yards on the year despite missing the North Carolina game.

It’s tough for high-profile programs like the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to have success against the spread because oddsmakers post inflated numbers and Joe Square still bets them up. But with a big win and cover last week, Notre Dame is now 6-1 ATS this season. Can the Irish keep the good times rolling when they run with the North Carolina State Wolfpack on Saturday afternoon?

Georgia vs Florida: Live, Stream, Football, Week 9 Game

Georgia vs Florida — Florida sure doesn’t sound like a double-digit underdog against third-ranked Georgia.

The Gators made it clear Monday that they’re the ones to beat in the rivalry known as “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.” They have won three in a row in the series and 21 of the last 27, the main reason players seemed unfazed to hear they are two touchdown underdogs against the undefeated Bulldogs.

Georgia vs Florida

Georgia vs Florida — Kirby Smart stood before his Georgia football team, as he usually does at team meetings, and took a poll: Everyone who has beaten Florida, Smart said, please stand up.

There were a few awkward moments.

“It was sobering,” senior tight end Jeb Blazevich said. “With so much praise going on, on the outside, it’s like, ‘Guys this is where we’re at.’ Nobody has beaten these guys.”

Technically, a few Georgia players were on the last Bulldogs team to beat Florida, but that was back in 2013, and the only holdovers were redshirting and didn’t take the field. Since then it’s been all Florida.

This season it’s expected to be all Georgia: The Bulldogs are two-touchdown favorites, unbeaten and ranked No. 3 in the country, while the Gators (3-3) are reeling on and off the field. So to counteract that potential rat poison, Smart and his staff have gone about reminding their players about the recent history of this game.

Georgia vs Florida

“We haven’t lost to Georgia in the last three years; our seniors have never lost to Georgia,” Florida receiver Josh Hammond said. “That brings a lot of confidence to us, just knowing that Georgia isn’t a team that we lose to. So I think that’s the message in the locker room right now.

“They might be the No. (3) team in the country, but they can’t beat Florida. That’s our mentality going forward, and we’ll come out and be ready to play.”

According to online gaming site Bovada, Florida (3-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) hasn’t been as big of an underdog against Georgia (7-0, 4-0) since at least 1985. That’s as far back as the site’s records stretch.

Since then, Florida has been a double-digit dog just once against Georgia. The Bulldogs were favored by 11 ½ points in 2014 and lost 38-20.

Georgia opened as 14 ½-point favorites for Saturday’s game in nearby Jacksonville.

“It’s motivational,” Gators linebacker Kylan Johnson said. “It’s very motivational to be the underdog in a game. (We) kind of like being like that, too. Going in as the underdog, people just expect you not to win. They think you don’t have a chance.

“But when you come in and you play ball and you end up on top, it’s a little bit of respect factor.”

The Gators have dropped two straight by a combined three points, losing to LSU and Texas A&M at home, and are on the brink of elimination in the SEC’s Eastern Division.

Coach Jim McElwain also is getting plenty of heat for a third consecutive year of lackluster offense. The Gators rank 102nd in the country in total yards, partly because they’ve been down more than 20 scholarship players due to recent injuries and season-long suspensions . McElwain refuses to use those as excuses.

Nonetheless, Florida still can salvage the season. But only with another victory — a huge upset this time — against the Bulldogs.

“I feel like we’ve been the underdog for the past 10 years,” safety Chauncey Gardner said. “Everybody wants to see us lose every game, ‘Oh Florida this, Florida that.’ We’ve been the underdog since the first game of the season, whole season, ‘Can these guys get back to Atlanta?’

“We’ve been shocking everybody wrong, proving everybody wrong. … If you’re better than us, prove it.”

Georgia has been better than everyone on its schedule so far.

The Bulldogs edged Notre Dame early in the season and then dominated four SEC opponents by a combined score of 170-45. Freshman Jake Fromm ranks second in the league in pass efficiency. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel form the conference’s top running back tandem. And Georgia is second in the SEC in every major defensive category, behind only perennial power Alabama.

“You say they have a great quarterback. I get it,” he said. “He’s throwing simple passes. I get it. Anybody can throw a slant. I get it. But like I said, we’re just playing football. If you call him the best quarterback, so be it, but he has to play Saturday. We’re going to see what his best attribute is.”

Call it smack talk or bulletin-board material. Either way, Gardner and the Gators are taking their chances with an “us-against-the-world” approach.

Georgia vs Florida: “This game feels like a championship game to us,” Gardner said. “If they are the best team, so be it. But they have to play Saturday. We’re going to see them Saturday. If y’all feel like they’re the best team, pick ’em. Do what you got to do.

“But we’re going to go out there with our defense, with our offense and play this game and win the game.”

Penn State vs Ohio State: Live, Stream, Odds, Betting Pick

Penn State vs Ohio State: The Ohio State Buckeyes are 4-1 both straight up and against the spread over the last five meetings with the Penn State Nittany Lions, but the Lions shocked the Buckeyes last year on their way to the Big Ten championship.

In a game that might decide a division title Penn State takes on Ohio State on Saturday afternoon at the Horseshoe.

College football point spread: The Buckeyes opened as seven-point favorites, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)

Why Penn State vs Ohio State can cover the spread

Penn State vs Ohio State

The Lions reached 7-0 last week and exacted a measure of revenge with a 42-13 victory over Michigan. Penn State jumped out to a 14-0 lead five minutes into the game on a pair of Saquon Barkley touchdown runs, let the Wolverines get within 14-13, then scored the final 28 points of the game and covered easily as a seven-point favorite.

On the evening, the Lions outgained Michigan 506-269 and outrushed the Wolverines 224-103. So Penn State has now outgained each of its four Big Ten opponents by a 459-290 per-game average.

The Lions have also outscored opponents in the first quarter this season 90-0, leading by at least 14 points after one quarter five times already. And they’re now an amazing 14-1-2 ATS over their last 17 games.

Watch Penn State vs Ohio State Live

Images of the alternate uniforms Ohio State planned to wear against Penn State began leaking on the internet last week, and now Ohio State has confirmed the look.

When the Buckeyes take the field against the Nittany Lions on Saturday, they’re going to look a little different.

Why Penn State vs Ohio State can cover the spread

The Buckeyes own a five-game winning streak following their 56-14 blowout at Nebraska two weeks ago. They then enjoyed last week off.

Ohio State led the Cornhuskers 14-0 after the first quarter and 35-0 at the half, breezing to the cover as a 23-point road favorite.

On the evening, the Buckeyes outgained Nebraska 633-393, outrushed the Cornhuskers 279-44 and won time of possession by a 35/25 split. They also didn’t punt. And almost all the yardage the Ohio State defense gave up came after the game had been decided.

So that’s five games in a row the Buckeyes have hit the 500-yard mark on offense, and four games in a row they’ve hit the 50-point mark.

Penn State is coming off a big effort in a big win last week, and while the team is probably good enough to avoid a letdown, it’s still difficult to get up for big games two weeks in a row.

Meanwhile, Ohio State had last week off. While the Lions upset the Buckeyes last year 24-21, Ohio State actually outplayed Penn State that day. Smart money here bets the Buckeyes.

Penn State vs Ohio State betting trends

Ohio State is 10-3 ATS in its last 13 games in Week 9.

The total has gone over in Ohio State’s last five games against its conference.

Penn State is 14-1-1 ATS in its last 16 games.

Man City vs Napoli Odds

Man City vs Napoli Odds: Man City host Napoli at the Etihad Stadium with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm on Tuesday, October 17, TV and live online coverage.

Man City vs Napoli Odds

The match will be televised live on BT Sport 3, with coverage from 7pm. BT Sport subscribers can watch the match on the enhanced video player on BTSport.com or via the BT Sport app.

‘Sarri-ball’ is the name given to the brave, progressive tactics of Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri.
How does it work?

The style of play was described by L’Equipe as “vertical tiki-taka”, and is a possession-based style with plenty of short, quick passes but an emphasis on moving up the pitch quickly. In other words: “liquid football”.

Man City vs Napoli Odds

At present, Sarri-ball is working to devastating effect, with Napoli top of Serie A having won all eight of their league matches this season. In his first two seasons at Napoli, Sarri led the club to second and third placed finishes, but he has spent most of his managerial career in Italy’s lower leagues.

Manchester City host Napoli on Tuesday in what could be one of the most entertaining Champions League group games in years.

Man City vs Napoli Odds

City sit top of Group F with a maximum six points from their opening two gameweeks, and are yet to concede a goal as Pep Guardiola targets winning the trophy for the third time in his managerial career.

While it has been plain sailing for City so far this season, Napoli sit top of Serie A with a perfect record after seven games, with the likes of Dries Mertens certain to cause problems at the Etihad.

Manchester City and Napoli will lock horns in the Champions League on Tuesday having torn up the record books with their remarkable goalscoring feats over the opening weeks of the season.

Man City vs Napoli Odds: Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli are top of Serie A with a 100 per cent record after eight matches, scoring 26 times in the process.

No side has enjoyed such a prolific opening to an Italian top-flight season since 1959-60, while you have to go back to Everton in the 1894-95 campaign for an English side who netted more than City’s 29 over an initial eight-game period.

Sarri described City as “by far the strongest team in Europe at the moment” at his pre-match news conference, while Pep Guardiola also lavished praise on a counterpart very much cut from the same coaching cloth.

But who is leading the charge for these two lethal attacks, who are the main creators and how are they taking opponents apart with such apparent ease? Ahead of a mouth-watering clash, we looked at some Opta data to find out.

Napoli’s Belgium forward Dries Mertens is the top league goalscorer on either side with seven goals, building on his stunning haul of 28 in 35 matches last season when Sarri’s decision to deploy the 30-year-old in a central attacking role proved a masterstroke.

Man City vs Napoli Odds: Mertens’ colleagues in a front three Guardiola hailed as “so dynamic”, Jose Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne, have four and three respectively, while there is a three-way tie at the top of City’s goalscoring charts.

Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling have each scored six times in the Premier League, while Germany winger Leroy Sane has weighed in with four.

 

Live – Louisville vs NC State, Football, Game Preview

Louisville vs NC State: North Carolina State will host Louisville on Thursday night as a ranked team for the first time in a while, but the Wolfpack won’t be the favorite going in. The early lines out of Vegas have NC State as around a 2.5-point underdog to the Cards, which is not so bad given how last year’s game went down.

Louisville vs NC State

Heading into the season, the Thursday night clash this week in Raleigh was viewed as a possible trap Louisville vs NC State game. After NC State lost to a lackluster South Carolina team in the opener, that concern eased. And then after the Cardinals stumbled against Clemson, 47-21, concerns resurfaced.

Louisville vs NC State, the game is approaching, and it stands as a big one for ACC positioning, with both teams sitting at 4-1. Here are five things to know about NC State:
1. The Wolfpack was no match for Louisville last year

Surprisingly, the NC State win was one of the Cards’ most lopsided of the 2016 season. Louisville led after one quarter, 17-0, and at halftime, 44-0. After the Wolfpack nearly upset eventual national champion Clemson in Death Valley, the Cardinals humiliated them at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Playing at night on national television at home, Dave Doeren’s bunch should be hungry for revenge.

Then again, the Wolfpack have a huge deficit to make up.

Lamar Jackson scored on a 36-yard run on the third play from scrimmage last year. NC State quarterback Ryan Finley threw an interception on the fourth. Jackson threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns and left early in the blowout. NC State benched Finley in the first half. A similar cast of character is back for both teams. Will the result be different?
2. NC State is on a four-game win streak.

Louisville vs NC State

After the Wolfpack started the season with that loss to South Carolina, they have won four straight, most impressively a 27-21 upset of Florida State in Tallahassee. NC State is now 2-0 in the ACC heading into Thursday’s game, with a Nov. 4 home date against No. 2 Clemson looming.

Saturday, the Wolfpack took a 26-7 lead at halftime and then escaped, milking the final 4:39 with nine run plays. NC State played a solid game overall, holding the ball for more than 36 minutes and not turning the ball over.
3. Bradley Chubb is a handful

Last year, NC State’s star pass rusher ranked fourth in the country with 22 tackles for loss and 19th with 10.5 sacks. Chubb is off to an even better start this year, with 12 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks in five games. He should be both an All-American and a first-round pick after this season.

Defense has been the problem for the Wolfpack in Doeren’s five years, but the unit has improved from 83rd in scoring defense to 65th to 52nd to 27th last year. NC State ranks 54th this year, but Chubb still leads a group that could give Louisville some trouble.

4. Louisville vs NC State weakness

When Chubb lets opponents get passes off, the Wolfpack have trouble defending them. A rough performance against Syracuse on Saturday dropped NC State to 116th in the country in pass defense at 284.8 yards per game. Jackson is throwing for 327.2 yards per game, and he’s only played five quarters in the past two weeks.

The Wolfpack have given every indication that they’re going to make it a close game under the lights Thursday, but if they can’t stop the vertical passing game, this matchup could look like last year’s.

5. Louisville vs NC State

The Wolfpack lost 10 in a row until they knocked off Florida State on Sept. 23. And they lost those 10 by 18.7 points per game, with eight coming by double digits and three by at least 30 points.

Louisville vs NC State: None was worse than last year’s drubbing in Louisville, and the Cards have had NC State’s number, winning all three times since they joined the ACC in 2014.

Florida State vs Wake Forest Football, Game – Live Stream

Florida State vs Wake Forest: When Florida State heads up to Wake Forest on Saturday, it will be the teams’ 36th meeting, most of which FSU has won. In total, FSU is 28-6-1 against the Demon Deacons and have won each of the past five meeting vs. Wake and 21 of the past 25.

In recent years, FSU is just 7-4 in its past 11 meetings vs. Wake Forest and just 3-2 on the road in that span.

Florida State vs Wake Forest

In between Florida State’s streak high 14 game win streak and current five game streak was a surge by Wake Forest. From 2006-2008, the Demon Deacons won three straight games which started with that infamous 30-0 victory at Doak Campbell. That was the only time FSU has been shutout vs Wake Forest.

Florida State is 8-3 on the road in the series and won the meeting’s only neutral site game in Orlando back in 1996 in Orlando.

13 times, FSU has scored over 40 points and had a series high 72 points in 1995. Wake Forest’s best scoring performance was a victorious 35 point effort in 2011.

Under Jimbo Fisher as head coach, FSU is 6-1 against Wake. If you include his time as offensive coordinator, that record dips to 8-3.

Florida State vs Wake Forest

Florida State vs Wake Forest: “Hopefully, we can shut guys down and not get behind in that area,” Fisher said. “At times which they played really well, we needed to get the ball back at the end with a stop, and gave up some third-and-longs, a couple there.”

Aside from answering questions about his team, Fisher was quizzed about what he and his staff can do when it comes to achieving accountability.

Fisher stood firm. He said FSU’s coaching is accountable whether the team wins or loses.

Florida State vs Wake Forest: “When we win, all right, but that guy didn’t play as well. What can we do to get him to play better?,” Fisher responded, when discussing accountability. “Does he need more video? Does he need more time? Does he need more reps on the field? Does he need more walk-through time? Certain players learn differently. So it’s a very similar situation win or lose, believe it or not.

Florida State vs Wake Forest: “There’s no magic dust or magic thing that makes you meet more, play more. We meet and do as much as we can, but we’ve got to evaluate what we’re doing, what works, what doesn’t work, and how to get each player to be more successful.”

Florida vs Vanderbilt: Football, TV, radio, live stream

Florida vs Vanderbilt – Florida has named its starting quarterback for the Vanderbilt game, according to ESPN analyst Paul Finebaum.

After helping lead the team to a come-from-behind win against Kentucky, redshirt junior Luke Del Rio will get the starting nod this week, McElwain told Finebaum. Del Rio finished 9-14 for 74 yards and a touchdown against Kentucky, throwing one interception.

Florida vs Vanderbilt

“Moving forward to this week, Luke will take the starting reps in practice and yet the other two guys will still get their reps as well,” McElwain said. “We’ll see where it goes from there.”

The communication on offense seemed much better once Del Rio entered the game.

Del Rio had a strong fall camp and was firmly in the mix to start the season, but the coaches opted for redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks instead. Franks started the first three games, but he was replaced late in the game against both Michigan and Kentucky.

Both Florida and Vanderbilt had tough SEC games last weekend, but for totally different reasons.

Florida vs Vanderbilt: The No. 21-ranked Gators (2-1) barely edged out the Kentucky Wildcats by the score of 28-27. The Wildcats had an opportunity to win the game as time expired but Austin MacGinnis’ 57-yard field goal fell short.

Vanderbilt (3-1) was undefeated and extremely confident heading into its game against Alabama, but dreams of an upset faded quickly. The Commodores were destroyed 59-0 at home as the Crimson Tide led 31-0 at halftime.

Florida holds a 38-10-2 all-time series advantage over Vanderbilt. In their meeting in Nashville last season, the Gators prevailed 13-6 behind two Eddy Pinerio field goals.

Vanderbilt will face a third straight ranked team when it plays at No. 20 Florida Saturday.

Florida vs Vanderbilt Kickoff will be 11 a.m. at The Swamp in Gainesville, Fla. Vanderbilt (3-1, 0-1 SEC) had three straight wins and then a 59-0 loss to No. 1 Alabama last week. Florida (2-1, 2-0 SEC) pulled out wins over Tennessee and Kentucky on the final play.

Florida vs Vanderbilt

TV: The game will be shown on ESPN, which is available on the following channels: 602 AT&T U-Verse, 140 Dish, 206 DirecTV, 11 XFinity/Comcast.

Florida vs Vanderbilt RADIO: 98.3-FM, 1510-AM; full list of Vanderbilt Network.

Florida vs Vanderbilt live stream:Watch ESPN

After Feleipe Franks started his third straight game for the Gators, he was pulled in the second half, but for a quarterback many weren’t expecting. Del Rio, who started six games for the Gators in 2016 came in relief of Franks and helped Florida come back from a 13-point deficit.

Florida vs Vanderbilt: It was Del Rio who threw the game-winning touchdown with 43 seconds left. During the offseason, Del Rio had shoulder surgery. Earlier this week head coach Jim McElwain named Del Rio the starter against Vanderbilt on Saturday. It will be interesting to see how well Del Rio and the offense does against a Commodores defense that, up until last week against Alabama, has held opponents in check.

2. Ralph Webb

So far this season, the Commodores have been unable to get Webb (above, right), the program’s all-time leading rusher, going. Webb has just 64 carries for 169 yards and two touchdowns through four games.

“He’s run all over us the last two years, McElwain said in a press conference earlier this week. “He plays with a little extra juice.”

In Webb’s last two meetings against the Gators, he has eclipsed the 100-yard mark in each game. Last season, Webb finished with 110 yards on 24 carries against a Florida defense that ended up ranked 37th in FBS against the run.

3. Florida’s defense

Speaking of defense, this Gators unit hasn’t quite performed up to its usual standards, especially compared to the past few seasons.

Florida enters this game ranked 82nd in the country in total defense, giving up 405 yards per game. Kentucky put up 340 yards last week, hurting the Gators on both the ground (120) and through the air (220). Last year, Florida finished fifth in FBS in total defense (292.8 ypg) and held the Wildcats to just 149 total yards.

Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur ranks fourth in the SEC in passing efficiency and has eight touchdowns and just one interception. Between Shurmur and Webb the Gators’ defense could be in for another long afternoon unless this group shows some improvement.

Florida vs Vanderbilt: Vanderbilt is a much better team than the one that played Alabama last week. The Commodores have given the Gators all they can handle in recent seasons and there’s no reason to think will be any different, even in the Swamp.

Florida vs Vanderbilt: Both Florida and Vanderbilt rank at the bottom of the SEC in scoring, so points will come at a premium. The difference in Saturday’s game could be freshman Kadarius Toney, who has done a little bit of everything on offense in the early going. Look for the Gators to get him to ball often in what ends up being another close game between these SEC East rivals.

Prediction: Florida 20, Vanderbilt 17

Well everybody, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team has gone and done it again, winning in enough of a convincing fashion over Michigan State last weekend to make the pessimist in a lot of us start to think that maybe this team could have a really good rest of the season.

Notre Dame vs Miami OH

That rest of the season begins this Saturday against the Miami RedHawks, whose coach is former Brian Kelly assistant Chuck Martin and whose team is largely a huge question mark to Notre Dame fans.

To dispel the mystery surrounding the RedHawks, I talked to James Snyder of Hustle Belt, SB Nation’s one-stop shop for all your MACtion needs. He gave us some fantastic detail on Chuck Martin as a coach, Gus Ragland as a QB, and Tom Brady as president of the U.S. and A, along with answering a smattering of other questions I pelted him with earlier this week.

That 6-2 record doesn’t really tell the whole picture from last season. They started the season 0-6, including 0-2 in the MAC, before winning 6 straight and losing a heartbreaker to Mississippi State in the bowl game.

The 2 losses this year were sloppy, much like the bowl loss last season, so there are mixed feelings about Martin from the fan base. On the one hand, he turned around a team that lost 6 straight to make them bowl eligible. On the other, there are a lot of woulda, coulda, shouldas in the three losses since.

The offense is set up like a traditional Midwestern offense, where the QB manages the game and the defense keeps the team in the game. Make fewer mistakes than the opponent and win. That’s the game plan.

In the loss to the Bearcats, there was a pick 6 from Miami’s own side of the field late, and in the Marshall game the Thundering Herd had 3 return touchdowns. I think the statistical struggles of the offense are basically the system and the lack of a running back establishing himself as “the man” this season.

So, with all that said, let’s dive into James’ answers and learn a thing or two about THE University of Miami.

Penn State vs Indiana – Football, Game, Live Stream

Penn State vs Indiana — It’s entirely possible, Penn State coach James Franklin said Tuesday, that last Saturday’s 21-19 victory at Iowa took years off his life.

Penn State owns this rivalry, but lately, the games have been close. Last year in Bloomington, Indiana led 31-28 late into the fourth quarter, when the Lions scored the last 17 points for a fortunate cover. Three years ago, the final score was 13-7. And four years ago, the Hoosiers beat Penn State 44-24. Indiana probably won’t win this one, but the smart money at sports betting sites wagers the Hoosiers.

Penn State vs Indiana

“I started out that game at 45 years old,” he joked, “and I finished the game at 55.”

Penn State vs Indiana the No. 4 Nittany Lions marched 80 yards in 12 plays in the final 1:42, culminating in Trace McSorley’s 7-yard touchdown pass to Juwan Johnson as time expired.

“I think if you look at any really good season, there’s always one game like that,” Franklin said, “where you have to gut it out and find a way to win. And our team’s gritty and we found a way to do it.”

The Lions, 4-0 heading into Saturday’s home game against Indiana (2-1), have won 13 of their last 14 games, dating to last September. Their only loss in that span was a 52-49 thriller to USC in the Rose Bowl.

“We know how special we can be,” offensive tackle Ryan Bates said. “I think after Iowa, after last Saturday, we know what we can do. We know what the season can be for us.”

Bates added that the Lions believe they boast “the best offense in the country,” while acknowledging there is always room for improvement.

“We know our potential,” he said, “and we know the sky’s the limit with us.”

That’s especially true of running back Saquon Barkley, a leading contender for the Heisman Trophy.

Penn State vs Indiana: Barkley was named the Maxwell Award Player of the Week after accumulating a school-record 358 all-purpose yards against the Hawkeyes, including 211 rushing yards on 28 attempts. He leads the FBS in all-purpose yards per game (253.3). He is 11th in the nation in rushing at 129.5 yards per game.

Barkley also has 23 receptions for a Big Ten-leading 335 yards.

“Can’t imagine there’s a better player in all of college football,” Franklin said.

The Hoosiers beat Georgia Southern 52-17 last week, as freshman Morgan Ellison ran 25 times for 186 yards and two touchdowns, and J-Shun Harris returned a punt for a touchdown for the second straight week.

“It was a game where we were supposed to win,” said Indiana first-year coach Tom Allen, “and I felt like our players prepared and played in a manner that you expect them to.”

Penn State vs Indiana: Allen held out wide receiver Donavan Hale, running back Mike Majette, guard Simon Stepaniak and cornerback Rashard Fant, mostly for precautionary health reasons, but the coach did not commit on Monday to any of them returning this week.

Four others players — quarterback Richard Lagow, cornerback A’Shonn Riggins, defensive tackle Nate Hoff and safety Marcelino Ball — suffered unspecified injuries against Georgia Southern. Lagow is expected to play this week, while the other three are questionable.

IU is last in the Big Ten — and 102nd among 129 FBS teams — in rushing defense, allowing 196.3 yards a game. The Hoosiers are next-to-last in the conference in total defense (428.3) and third from the bottom in scoring defense (27.7).

They have yet to log an interception this season, but linebacker Tegray Scales has recorded a team-leading 26 tackles, 2.5 for loss. Last year he generated an FBS-leading 23.5 tackles for loss among his 126 stops.

The Nittany Lions enjoyed a 579-273 yardage advantage against Iowa but struggled to finish drives. They were inside the 15 on four occasions before the decisive march, and came away with a single touchdown.

Penn State vs Indiana: “When you get into the red zone, all the details are magnified because you’ve just got less field and you’ve got less space,” Franklin said. “We’ve just got to do a better job with those things, which I know we will.”

McSorley has completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 1,037 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has been intercepted three times.

Since opening this season with a closer-than-the-score-indicated loss to Ohio State the Hoosiers are 2-0 both SU and ATS, including a 52-17 romp/cover over Georgia Southern last Saturday. Indiana led 21-0 after the first quarter and 31-0 before allowing the Eagles to hit the board. Near the end, as GSU tried to push the 21-point spread, the Hoosiers defense pulled a strip-six to preserve the cash.

On the day, Indiana outgained the Eagles 468-375, and about three-quarters of the yardage the Hoosiers allowed came in prevent-mode. Freshman running back Morgan Ellison, making his first career start, accounted for 194 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns, and J-Shun Harris returned a punt for a score for the second straight game.

As mentioned above, Indiana opened this season with a 49-21 loss to Ohio State, but the Hoosiers led that game 21-20 late into the third quarter before fading. Indiana then went on the road and beat what’s now a 3-1 Virginia team 34-17.

Penn State also leads the FBS in scoring defense, having allowed an average of 8.3 points a game, including shutouts of Akron and Georgia State. Safety Marcus Allen has recorded a team-high 24 tackles, as well as a sack and an interception.

“It’s a tremendous challenge for our program,” Allen said.

“You know, you get to points in seasons when you want to be healthy. Sometimes you are; sometimes you’re not. And other young men to have rise up and play to a level that you expect them to. You look across the country and other teams are dealing with the same thing and you have to pony up, as we say.”
