Big Ten Responds To Brandon Smith Ejection

BTN.com – The Big Ten Conference has issued a statement regarding Brandon Smith’s ejection in the Nittany Lions/Wolverines game at Ann Arbor: During Saturday’s Penn State at Michigan football game, a Penn State defensive player was ejected for targeting with 14:55 remaining in the second quarter. We do not find fault with the flag that was thrown by the on-field officials as they are instructed to prioritize player safety when making calls. Targeting occurs when a player takes aim at an opponent, whether the crown of the helmet is used to make forcible contact to the head or neck area…

Arnold Palmer Dies At 87

By Doug Ferguson – PITTSBURGH, PA (AP) – Arnold Palmer brought a country club sport to the masses with a hard-charging style, charisma and a commoner’s touch. At ease with both presidents and the golfing public, and on a first-name basis with both, “The King” died Sunday in Pittsburgh. He was 87. Alastair Johnson, CEO of Arnold Palmer Enterprises, confirmed that Palmer died Sunday afternoon of complications from heart problems. Johnson said Palmer was admitted to the UPMC Hospital on Thursday for some cardiovascular work and weakened over the last few days. “Today marks the passing of an era,” said…

(AP) — De’Veon Smith led an overwhelming ground game with 107 yards rushing and a touchdown and Karan Higdon ran for two scores and No. 4 Michigan routed Penn State 49-10 on Saturday in both teams’ Big Ten opener. The Wolverines scored six touchdowns on the ground as they finished with 326 yards rushing.

That’s an efficient way to great way to move the ball, and our…

Wartman-White also had two pass breakups. In 2014, Wartman-White ended the season as the team’s second-leading tackler behind All-American Mike Hull.  His 75 tackles in 2014 more than doubled his previous career high, with his 6.2 stops per game ranking 28th in the conference.

PSU Comeback Falls Short

PITTSBURGH, PA (UPI) – Penn State wouldn’t lie down but Pittsburgh wouldn’t be denied. Quadree Henderson returned a fourth-quarter kickoff 84 yards to set up James Conner’s second touchdown of the game and Pittsburgh held on to beat Penn State 42-39 on Saturday in Pittsburgh.

Texas 2OT Win Over Irish

By Chip Patterson/CBSSports.com Texas will be in every top 25 poll that exists on Tuesday. That little number hasn’t been beside the Longhorns’ name since they lost to BYU as the No. 25 team in polls on Sept. 6, 2014. The little number means nothing in the big, complex picture of Texas football, but it does mark a return to contention, and that’s all that Charlie Strong needs in 2016. Texas wasn’t expected to win the Big 12, and trust me, no one saved a spot for the Longhorns in their projected College Football Playoff. But contention, standing eye-to-eye with…

Bears Release Gould

By Sean Wagner-McGough/CBSSports.com – For the first time in forever, field goals at Soldier Field will no longer be as good as Gould. As first reported by ESPN’S Adam Schefter and confirmed by The Chicago Tribune, the Bears cut kicker Robbie Gould on Sunday night. In doing so, the Bears freed up $3 million in cap space. They also just parted ways with their all-time leader in points scored and their longest-tenured player — a distinction quarterback Jay Cutler now owns. In Gould’s career, which began in Chicago in 2005, he appeared in 166 games, connecting on 85.4 percent of…
