Francis Owusu’s Catch Continues A Stanford Tradition vs. UCLA

Poor UCLA. Chances are if you see a highlight reel catch coming from Stanford, it was made against the Bruins. Francis Owusu’s grab Thursday night is the latest, and undeniably the greatest. EXCUSE ME FRANCIS OWUSU HOW CC: @StanfordFball #Pac12FB http://t.co/CxXMFxdZAS — Pac-12 Networks (@Pac12Networks) October 16, 2015 Owusu’s behind-the-back grab around UCLA safety Jaleel Wadood elicits comparison […]


LaQuan McGowan and The Ever-Evolving Baylor Offense

Through one half in Lawrence, Baylor is paying homage to Georgia Tech-Cumberland College on the game’s 99th anniversary. A big part of the deluge is LaQuan McGowan.

Heisman Top 10 Week 2: Running Backs Surge Ahead

A running back hasn’t won the Heisman Trophy since Mark Ingram in 2009, and only two have claimed the prestigious award in this millennium. Alabama’s Derrick Henry looks to follow in the footsteps of his forerunner Ingram, however, storming to another wildly efficient performance despite limited touches. Henry is one of three running backs surging […]

Adams was arrested and held on $100,000 bail Monday for allegedly stealing a cell phone from an Uber driver. Mora is reserving further action for more details to surface. In the […]
