Army vs. Navy Game 2018 score: Black Knights hold off Midshipmen for third straight victory


Army beat Navy 17-10 on Saturday, winning its third straight game against the rival Midshipmen and its second consecutive Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy in the process. Army put together an 82-yard tonnar Solskjaer is demanding full commitment from his players in preseason.Solskjaer and his backroom team have drawn up a hard-line pre-season diary to ensure there is no repeat of the fitness issues which were such a problem last term.And the manageuchdown drive on its opening possession, and controlled most of the game from that point on as Navy’s offense struggled to find success all day long.

The story of this game, ultimately, was turnovers. Army didn’t turn the ball over once, while Navy turned it over four times. While two first-half interceptions kept Navy at bay, it was two second-half fumbles that sunk the Midshipmen for good.

Navy earned a defensive stop on fourth down at midfield and proceeded to put together its best drive of the game and getting into the red zone. Unfortunately, a fumble by Garret Lewis inside the Army 5-yard line ended the Navy threat and effectively finished the game. Navy would get a defensive stop afterward and get the ball back in Army territory, and quickly capitalized with a touchdown drive to cut Army’s lead to 10-7. The Navy defense came through yet again on the next possession, forcing an Army punt, but their next offensive possession didn’t go nearly as well. Zach Abey was stripped of the ball while dropping back on 4th-and-12, and Army recovered the fumble. It was Abey’s third turnover of the day as he was responsible for both interceptions in the first half.

Army QB Kell Hopkins, on the other hand, had a terrific day. Hopkins rushed for 83 yards and scored both of Army’s touchdowns. He also helped Army convert some critical third downs during the game with his arm, as he completed 4 of 9 passes for 61 yards. Hopkins’ play on offense and the Army defense forcing fou Vardy.Elder left the King Power Stadium in the summer to sign a three-year contract with the Tigers.Elder reckons that both Bowen and Vardy possess similar qualities which makes them both clinical in front of goal.”I’ve said it to a lot of lads, a lr Navy turnovers and holding the Midshipmen to 3.85 yards per play gave the Knights their third straight win over Navy, and gave Army its second consecutive 10-win season.

Clemson vs. Georgia Tech: Prediction, pick, odds, line, TV channel, live stream, watch online


One way or another each year since 2005, the annual cross-division rivalry between No. 3  and  has been a major factor in the ACC championship race. The Tigers and Yellow Jackets have combined to appear in the ACC Championship Game nine times in that 12-year span, though it has been Clemson dominating the league — and this rivalry — over the last three seasons.

The Tigers have won three straight games againnst West Ham United was down to an increase in confidence.The Brazilian received the ball from Theo Walcott on the edge of the penalty box and went on a mazy run to score the opening goal in the 2-0 victory.Asked if he was intent on firing off a shotst the Jackets and six of the last eight regular-season meetings between the teams. Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables’ unit is not only loaded with talent, it seems to have Georgia Tech’s offense completely figured out, holding the Yellow Jackets to just 17 combined points in the last two meetings.

: Saturday, Sept. 22 | : 3:30 p.m. ET: Bobby Dodd Stadium — Atlanta, GeorgiaABC |  


 Avoid the upset. Clemson is playing the long game right now, favored (often heavily) against every opponent on its schedule and trying to establish a championship-level focus and the kind of habits that could be the difference in a Playoff game. That said, recent losses against (2017) and (2016) have proven that Clemson is not only far from unbeatable in ACC play but just a few plays away from having those playoff chances altered dramatically. If there’s a spot on the schedule where Clemson might be vulnerable, playing on the road against an all-too-familiar rival loSports says Bentaleb is on Tyneside having a medical with Newcastle, ahead of a loan move from Schalke, which is managed by former Huddersfield boss David Wagner.Bentaleb has had an agreement with Wagner to seek a move away from S04 since before Chrioks looks to be it — at least enough so to get Clemson’s full, undivided attention. 

 This is a very crucial part of the season for Georgia Tech to avoid making the 2018 campaign the third time in four years that the Yellow Jackets did not finish the season in a bowl game. Ever since going 11-3 in 2014 and beating in the Orange Bowl, Georgia Tech has been 18-21 and failed to finish with a winning record in ACC play. The setbacks this year have already started piling up: back-to-back close losses to USF and Pitt, injuries to star offensive players and now the potential of starting the year 1-3 with thrNew Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri has revealed he has plans for Federico Bernardeschi.Sarri admits he’s a big fan of the midfielder.He stated, “Everyone knows I like this lad, ever since Fiorentina-Napoli. “He is well-organised, has talent, but lacks a little bit of consistency from game to game.“I think this is the moment of his career where he needs to play consistently in one single role.”ee top-25 teams left on the schedule. Paul Johnson said this week it’s time to pull yourself up by your boot straps, so what kind of response will the Yellow Jackets have for the Tigers? 

Game prediction, picks

Too many points here in a game where I expect Georgia Tech to play well with its back against the wall. Clemson knows it doesn’t need style points, it just needs wins, and it can ride the defense to another low-scoring victory.

Kyler Murray playing for Oklahoma is equal parts possibility and hypocrisy from NCAA


quarterback will be making close to $5 million this year. That’s a fact, and perhaps a record for the Sooners’ . Somehow, the pillars of amateurism haven’t collapsed just yet.

You know, the pillars that say money is the root of all evil in college athletics, unless it is being made by those who control college athletics.

The pillars that hold up the NCAA’s amateur ideal. The disparate ideals that get a kid suspended taking a lunch from a booster, but allow that same millionaire to win a Heisman Trophy.

The pillars that prop up the NCAA’s indefensible version of amateurism.

The irony of Murray being an amateur college quarterback and a professional baseball outfielder at the same time is rife with equal parts possibility and hypocrisy.

Murray was by the Oakland Athletics. In the midst of competing for the starting quarterback job at Oklahoma, Murray signed his baseball contract on Friday. As a surprise top-10 pick, he will play one more season of before playing baseball for pay.

NCAA rules allow professionals in one sport to receive compensation while retaining college eligibility in another. Nothing new there except to question Oakland’s wisdom in allowing its top pick to put his body and baseball career at risk for one more season under center.

The likes of John Elway and have played pro baseball and college football at the same time, but perhaps never at this powerful of a program, at college football’s most important position or for this much money.

Murray signed for a reported $4.7 million, took batting practice with the A’s then declared, “Right now, it’s about getting ready to go win a [football] national championship.”

Just so as the Sooners know who’s paying for the after party.

Whether Murray wins the starting job at Oklahoma is sort of irrelevant. It’s what he represents. Whatever money he gets, he has earned. It’s that his teammates pretty much can’t (legally) earn a dime.

Aside from the head coaches and perhaps a coordinator or two, Murray will be the highest paid person on the field at his games this fall.

He will be a highly-compensated symbol for a system that has never been more under attack. How do you justify not paying players something further when a defensive coordinator ( Dave Aranda) is making more than 80 head coaches ($2.5 million)?

How do you deny them something more when last year it was revealed the .

“The optics are what the writers make of them,” Delany said smugly.

How is a scholarship enough when 29 NCAA football players have died — mostly in workouts — since 2000?

The walls are closing in on the NCAA. The administrators who continue to defend the system just have to know where they escape hatch is.

It’s been less than four years since a district court judge found the NCAA was in violation of anti-trust laws in the landmark O’Bannon trial. It seems inevitable that sooner or later players are going to be able to earn something from their name, image and likeness.

The argument against is practically neanderthal. president Harris Pastides testified in the O’Bannon case that payments “would create a wedge between those student athletes who receive the funds and those who don’t.”

In the same case, NCAA president Mark Emmert said payments would “certainly impact the way other student-athletes perceive them.”

The suits seem to be actually suggesting that paying players would divide a locker room. How preposterous.

In the case of Oklahoma, Murray might be the best chance the Sooners have of returning to the College Football Playoff. That’s not a locker room poison, that’s hope for life after .

It has come to this: Murray’s baseball salary allowed by the NCAA is literally the NCAA’s argument for corruption.

“Google the NCAA’s definition of amateurism,” said Gerald Gurney, University of Oklahoma assistant professor and NCAA reformer. “Essentially it says athletes should not be paid because they need to concentrate on schoolwork. They can’t juggle two balls at the sameGreenwood.The Sun says United are not planning on rewarding Greenwood with a new deal after his first-team breakthrough.Greenwood, 17, made four appearances for United last term and started against Cardiff on the final day.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitt time. That’s asinine and ridiculous.”

At first, it might seem the root of this discussion is NCAA rules allow an athlete to turn pro in one sport and retain amateur eligibility in another.

But the real argument is how much the public and fans can stomach any college athlete being paid before they’re not considered college (thus, amateur) athletes.

Apparently, quite a bit.

Cost of attendance provides players between $5,000 and $10,000 per year just for being … athletes.Bowl gifts — typically capped at $550 — are nothing more than rewards for playing football. Men’s and women’s Final Four participants have their own gift suites to enjoy. Sports Business Daily reported basketball players who win their regular-season conference, conference tournament and .All three military academies (, , ) routinely pay salaries to cadets in service to the country.Olympic stipends allowed by the NCAA range from the modest to the extravagant. swimmer for his home country of Singapore for winning Ole a new hero in Bruno Fernandes.The Portuguese, signed from Sporting Lisbon last month, scored his first goal for United in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Watford at Old Trafford. And Crouch believes Fernandes’ bravado is exactly what the Red Devils have beenympic gold.Schools are allowed to pay five-figure insurance premiums of their prospects.One anonymous coach told me last year a player at  legally over the course of his career.

Most of these are not benefits allowed to the normal student. Just don’t ask the NCAA what a normal student is.

No one is going to deny that Murray deserves every penny he can get from the A’s. It’s only because he plays a different sport that he is not considered corrupted by NCAA standards.

“It’s very confusing,” Kyle Parker said.

Parker might be the best and most recent comparison to Murray. The former quarterback played football after getting a $1.4 million bonus with the in 2010.

After six years spent mostly in the minors, he returned to Clemson in 2017 to complete his degree.

“It’s leaning more toward the athlete,” Parker said, “but it’s still completely lopsided how much money college athletes make and [how much schools] generate off of amateur [athletes].”

In a way, it’s not a matter of paying players, it’s about semantics. What one man calls improper compensation, another calls amateurism.

“I have no issue with Kyler Murray at all,” Gurney said. “This is a demonstration of the NCAA’s inconsistent and ridiculous definition of amateurism.”

Parker said he was offered endorsements as a baseball player but th the Azzurri.“My relationship with Naples is normal,” he told Otto Channel.“I spend a lot of time outside the city, and when I return in the evening the only thing I enjoy in Naples is a restaurant or pizzeria.“This city could be nicer with scouldn’t accept them because he was still playing college football.

The same standard would apply to Murray.

“Any kind of advertising that you would have cashed in on playing in a big league city, you have to decline,” Parker said.

More absurdity. As a football player, Murray cannot accept so much as a free burger from a booster. As a baseball player, he has enough money to buy his entire offensive line a steak dinner. I’m getting headaches just writing about it.

For 50 years, until 1956, the NCAA essentially banned players from getting anything in outside compensation.

Now? Some players are sending cash home because of the myriad ways they can get money.

Some of the progress is common sense. Some of it reflects increasing pressure from the courts. All of it is way overdue.

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby perhaps provided the most insight. He told the reform-minded Knight Commission college athletes are neither pros nor amateurs.

“I think it’s a completely different genre of his own,” Bowlsby said. “It doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world …”

Maybe that’s the biggest problem. Kyler Murray isn’t the outlier. The system is.

WATCH: Baker Mayfield tears up, gets emotional talking Oklahoma punishment


The punitive response to obscene gesture to ‘ players during Saturday’s win was announced by head coach Lincoln Riley on Monday. Mayfield, a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist and the frontrunner to win the award with two weeks left to play in 2017, will not start against in the regular season finale. He is still expected to play, but . 

Having a captaincy removed is a punishment that has a varying severity depend clear at the top of the table, have started a trend of scoring late goals to win games this season.And Klopp insists the never-say-die attitude is something the squad pride themselves on.”How important is the mennchester City but new boss Carlo Ancelotti has told his money men to make sure he stays.And so Holgate, 23, signed as a kid from Barnsley, is in for a lucrative new deal to bring him more into line with what his team-mates earn.Holgate is on a lower tal side in football? It’s all, if yoing on the player, program and timing. That part on to the Chelsea squad.The German manager was asked whether Frank Lampard’s team would be a title threat in the coming season.Many are writing off Chelsea due to their transfer ban.However, Klopp believes that with players such as Abraham added to tof the punishment struck a nerve with Mayfield, considering that Saturday’s game against the Mountaineers is Senior Day in Norman. 

Mayfield spoke about the punishment after Monday’s practice and got emotional not about losing his starting job, but about not being a team captain for the final home game of his college career. 

“Not being a team captain is so much more,” Mayfield said. “It would be hard if it were a regular game or not, but it being my last one here ever, it means a lot more. It’s going to be tough, because Saturday was going to be — without all of this — an emotional one. It’s going to be hard to handle. It’s going to be hard.”

Virginia Tech vs. West Virginia prediction, pick, odds, watch live stream, TV channel


For years, the Black Diamond Trophy was awarded to the winner of and , border rivals and bitter conference rivals during their days in the Big East. The two squads haven’t played since 2005, and an offseason full of smack talk has added to the hype for this Sunday night showdown at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.. 

Both teams enter 2017 with e’s unsure of his next move.While his father has pushed for a switch to Napoli, James is said to be eager to hear from Manchester United before making a final decision.In Brazil for the Copa America, the Colombia captain said: “I do not know, I have new starting quarterbacks — redshirt freshman for Tech, former quarterback for the Mountaineers — and VT comes into it after winning 10 games and finishing in the top 25 a year ago, starting this season in the preseason poll. Dana Holgorsen and Justin Fuente both ascended the coaching ranks as well-respected offensive coordinators, and this game is expected to be very informative in terms of how each team has handled the turnover and whether either squad is primed to make a run at the favorites in their respective conferences.

Viewing information 

Sunday, Sept. 3 | 7:30 p.m. ET FedEx Field — Landover, Maryland ABC |


: Hokie fans seemed to know the names of all the offensive staff members prior to Justin Fuente’s arrival — and not for good reasons. The slide from winning ACC Coastal Division and cor Mikel Arteta admits that he needs to get into the Champions League to sign better players.The Gunners are among several teams that are trying to find a route into the top four in the Premier League.Given they are out of theback Juan Miranda.RAC1 says Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici is in Barcelona today for negotiations over Miranda.Juve have offered Daniele Rugani as part of the deal.However, Olympique Marseille remain ahead of the Bianconeri as they want to tak Europa League, the leagunference titles to fighting for bowl eligibility was defined by an offense that could never get on the same page and produce consistently across an entire season. Logan Thomas and Michael Brewer each had games — and moments in games — where everything was clicking. Bud Foster’s Lunch Pail Defense was complemented by an offense that could go toe-to-toe with anyone in the country. But there were also moments, like this one against in 2014, that haunt Virginia Tech fans to this day. 

Fuente brought a strong offensive reputation with him and quickly put his system in with a first-year starter in , who meshed well with some proven pieces already on the roster (, to name a few) and went on to break or tie 10 offensive school records on the way to a Coastal Division title and the program’s first 10-win season since 2011. The defense still looks loaded, so the main intrigue is whether Fuente’s instant offensive impact has another act with a new cast in 2017. 

: Are the Mountaineers a legit top-25 team? Holgorsen has expressed a lot of confidence in Grier, who did go 6-0 as Florida’s starter before his PED suspension, but WVU a handful of key contributors on both lines and two of its top receiving targets. The running back position is loaded, and Tony Gibson has done a great job with the defense in recent years, but like Virginia Tech, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered early to back up hype that seems to be more residual from last year’s 10-win season (the program’s best finish since joining the Big 12) than a projection of performance in 2017. 

The good news for West Virginia is that this is nothing new. Entering his seventh season, Holgorsen has moved from being a hot name to temporarily flirting with the hot seat and now seems firmly entrenched with his system and people in place. This is a program where a postseason appearance is the floor and every few years they’ll creep up and challenge for the Big 12 title. These transition years after the peak seasons are always going to be interesting to track because West Virginia could very well be a top-25 team, but in a tough Big 12, that can only be determined by they how they perform against comparable foes from other power conferences, like Virginia Tech.


FedEx Field has been a house of horrors for Virginia Tech, but I think they’ll exorcise some demons in a game that should be much lower scoring than you’d think based on the offensive reputation of both coaches. Bud Foster has been scouting the one-back attack of WVU all summer and while I’m sure Holgo will have some wrinkles that can catch the Lunch Pail D off guard I favor the Hokies in that matchup against a first-time starter under center. It’s going to be a rock fight that probably ends on a field goal, so I’m taking the underdog but think Virginia Tech ultimately wins straight up.

Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly prepared if NFL offers come


Related links VideoMore coverage | |

When asked about the NFL for the first time on Saturday, Kelly said NFL teams would have to contact his agent to show interest but that .

I was able to circle back with Kelly about the intrigue of the , which, according to , has Kelly on its radar.

“How can you not be [intrigued]?” Kelly said. “When ys to put their feet up for the looming winter break.The winter break and general player fatigue are subjects addressed this weekend by Lampard, and he starts by detailing plans for the free fortnight if there is no replay against FA Cup opponents Hulou’ve coached football, you look at everything — you look at high school film and you watch coaches there, college, Division III to Division I, it doesn’t matter, college, NFL. All of that stuff intrigues me. I still think it comes down to time and place. What is the right time, and what is the right place? I never take any of that off the board.”

Kelly’s a smart guy. He knows might call after the game, win or lose, right?

“My agent would get a call, he’d run it by me, andn Klopp plans to use some fresh legs in Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Genk.The Reds take on Premier League title rivals Manchester City on Sunday.”We will hopefully have a couple of fresh legs in,” he said at his pre-match press conference.”I we’d go from there,” he said. “But, again, time and place.”

Is the right time and place next week, after the game?

“Time and place,” said a smiling Kelly as he walked off.

Kelly has a sweet job, the Irish have a chance to be really good next season and the coach’s popularity is growing in South Bend after three yeaull off the ultimate comeback against Barcelona on Tuesday night.The Reds are down 3-0 after the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.But Dalglish is backing the Merseyside club to overturn the deficit.He told the Sunday Post: “Of course, irs. But he has nothing to lose by at least having fun with the NFL thing. And it sounds like he’s being honest about the situation, playing the fairway between overstating allegiance to Notre Dame and overselling the NFL.

He has been a college lifer. But his personality would translate well to the NFL, and I think he knows it. Doesn’t mean he acts on it now.

After the season that the Irish had, Kelly will get more money next year regardless. So I’m not sure he needs to angle publicly for something like that. He’s just being honest — the NFL intrigues him.

Pac-12 Buzz: Scores plus the best, worst from Opening Day


The Utes got off to a slow start — they didn’t score in the first quarter — but once they got going, they got going. Utah scored 21 points in the second quarter to put away the FCS Bears. On the offensive end, John White rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown while Jordan Wynn threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, Utah only surrendered 24 rushing yards and 121 total yards in a dominating performance that would make any defensive coordinator happy.

The Bruins offense started the game with a 72-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage and things only got better from there. Freshman quarterback Brett Hundley, making his first start, not only scored on the 72-yard run, he also threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns in the game. RB Johnathan Franklin got his senior year off to a strong start with 215 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries.

Mike Leach’s Washington State coaching debut wasn’t exactly a memorable one for the . For only the third time in his 11-year coaching career, a Leach offense was held wihtout a touchdown. Quarterback Jeff Tuel completed 30 of 45 passes for 229 yards for WSU, but he never found the end zone and was intercepted twice. The lowlight for the Cougars may have been their rushing total, they finished the game with negative-5 yards.  

The Todd Graham era got off to an explosive sta, claiming that he doesn’t know why people listen to the ex-Manchester United midfielder.Keane criticised Walters following a television interview on Ireland’s Late Late Show in which he was brought to tears when discussing the death of his mother whrt Thursday, even it it was against an FCS team. The Sun Devils scored nine touchdowns, including three by junior running back , who carried the ball 14 times for 107 yards. Quarterback was impressive in his first start, completing 15 of 19 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown. The Sun Devils 63 points were the most since the team also scored 63 in a win over Temple in 2005. 

 If there were any questions about Brett Hundley being able to handle the starting QB job at UCLA, they were answered quickly Thursday. On the Bruins first offensive play from scrimmage, Hundley scored on a 72-yard run. The freshman quarterback followed that uright with their advice to Adama Traore all those years ago…Mistakes were made. No doubt. The team in charge of Barcelona’s academy at the time could’ve done better. By his own admission, Adama would’ve been prepared to stay if the higher-ups had op on the Bruins next possession with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jerry Johnson. Hundley finished his impressive night with 202 yards and two touchdowns through the air and 68 yards and one touchdown on the ground. 

LB Damien Holmes, UCLA. After watching Rice storm back from a 19-0 deficit and cutting the Bruins lead to 29-24, UCLA needed a spark and they got it from Holmes. With under a minute to play in the first half, Holmes picked up an Owl fumble and returned it 44-yards for a score to put UCLA up 11 — they missed the PAT. After Holmes’ TD, Rice wouldn’t score again and the Bruins were able to blow the game open in the second half by tacking on two touchdowns. 

QB Brett Hundley, UCLA. Coach Jim Mora named Hundley the starter in mid-August and Hundley made Mora look like a genius Thursday. The dual threat QB passed for 202 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 68 yards and a touchdown. The Bruins first two possessioan have announced they will allow Atalanta to hold their Champions League home games at the San Siro.Milan agreed to the proposal despite some anger at being banned from Europe this season.In a statement to ANSA, the Rossoneri have said “We can confins were almost perfect: the team ran four plays, totaled 119 yards and scored two touchdown. The only mistake Hundley made on the day was a second quarter interception made by Rice’s Cameron Nwosu.  

UCLA K Ka’imi Fairbairn. Fairbairn struggled in the first half against Rice. The freshman hit only 2 of 5 on PATs in the game’s first two quarters. It was so bad that Bruin coach Jim Mora decided to go for 2-points on both of UCLA’s second half touchdowns. Depsite his PAT struggles, Fairbairn did connect on his only field goal attempt, a 27-yarder in the second quarter.
