    CBS Sports Pat Kirwan NFL Rankings

    Pat Kirwan, CBSSports.com NFL Insider – Only three teams — the Bengals, Cardinals and Eagles — have the undefeated 1972 Dolphins holding their collective breath, and while it’s doubtful any of these 3-0 squads go 19-0 and win it all, it’s fun for now. Of those teams, only the never-say-die Eagles play this week, hitting the road for an afternoon game at San Francisco, where the smarting 49ers are coming off a loss to the Cards. That setback drops the Niners 11 spots from No. 4 to No. 15 in this week’s Power Rankings. The Eagles have trailed in every…

    Harrison a Steeler Again

    Despite retiring late in the preseason, former Steelers linebacker James Harrison tweeted Monday that he had decided to return to Pittsburgh for another season. On Tuesday, he made it official when he posted this picture on Instagram with the simple caption, “Done deal.” Harrison has spent 10 of his 11 seasons with the Steelers, and during his reign in Pittsburgh, he made five-straight Pro Bowl appearances from 2007-11. But after a season in Cincinnati in 2013, there wasn’t much interest in Harrison on the free agent market. That was until this weekend, when the Steelers lost linebackers Jarvis Jones and…

    PSU 3-0 Wins Big Ten Opener

    PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) – Bill Belton scored on a 5-yard run with 1:13 to play and Penn State rallied from a 10-point deficit to post a 13-10 victory over Rutgers on Saturday night, spoiling the Scarlet Knights’ Big Ten Conference debut. Christian Hackenberg orchestrated the game-winning, six-play, 80-yard, drive with passes of 53 and 23 yards to Geno Lewis after the Nittany Lions (3-0, 1-0) took over with 3:02 to play. Sam Ficken had kicked field goals of 32 and 25 yards earlier in the half. The Nittany Lions defense intercepted Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova five times. Nova scrambled 14…

    NCAA Restores Scholarships and Post Season!!!

    (NCAA.org) Due to Penn State University’s significant progress toward ensuring its athletics department functions with integrity, the NCAA Executive Committee today eliminated the school’s postseason ban, effective immediately, and will return the full complement of football scholarships in 2015-16. The committee’s action endorses recommendations released today by George Mitchell, the university’s athletics oversight monitor, in his latest report. In addition to the scholarship and postseason participation changes, Mitchell also recommended that if Penn State continues to make impressive progress at the conclusion of the 2015 report, Mitchell’s oversight may conclude substantially earlier than 2017, the date set forth in the…
