Kiffin's former OC Kendal is the son of former Baylor coach Art Briles. Based on Kiffin's replacement hire, it's clear the FAU coach loves to hire sons of coaches. At KU, Charlie Jr. earned a reputation as an intelligent, hard worker with a more low-key personality than his father. Age is just a number, but when a 24-year-old is hired as the offensive coordinator at a Football Bowl Subdivision program, the decision will turn heads. Read More »

Philadelphia's unique rushing attack vaults Eagles into the NFC Championship game

Drivers spotted the marsupial, which resembles a smaller version of a kangaroo, bouncing along at the northern end of the eight-lane bridge just before 5:00 am (1600 GMT).

Antonio Conte urged to start Chelsea signing in midfield alongside Blues duo

After scoring regularly at the start of his first season in England, Morata has netted only three times in 14 appearances, with no goals in his last five matches.

United down Stoke with Valencia, Martial and Lukaku crackers

The £89 midfielder who returned to Manchester United following a sensational stint with Juventus after Potters thrashing reckoned that the Premier League title race is far from over for him and his teammates. He can stay there, but also a feeling he can move and, if he moves, I think we have a chance. United continued to press for the third goal and two minutes later Lingard did well to hold the ball up inside the area before laying it off to Mata who lashed his effort over the crossbar.

It was a dramatic reversal Tigers coach Brad Brownell chalked up simply to "the law of averages". That's the deepest into a game that Clemson has ever led North Carolina on its home court ...

National Football League notes: Many St. Louis ties spice NFC title game


Las Vegas has set the over-under at 38 points. If you buy a shirt, you could ostensibly wear it to the Linc on Sunday. This game has a better chance of becoming a defensive duel.
