(by Zac Al-Khateeb) Oklahoma's first test of the 2017 calendar year turned out to be more paper tigers than real ones.

And that means bad news for the rest...Read more

(by Tom Green) Auburn faced its most daunting defensive task of the season in the Sugar Bowl, and its opportunity to put a stamp on an otherwise impressive turnaround slipped out of its hands -- sometimes literally.

(by Luke Johnson) The familiar chant rained down on the Superdome turf as the final seconds of the Sugar Bowl ticked away. "S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C!" This time it was mocking, though. That's becoming an increasingly regular distinction at this game lately. A choir of success-drunk Oklahoma fans became the latest other-than-SEC group...Read more
