Vacunacionadultos college football staff picks for Week 7

It’s early November, and the Pac-12 has finally joined the 2020 college football season. Thus, things are feeling a little more complete with Week 7 of the staff picks.

Scroll along below to find out how various sports staffers see this week’s games playing out. Alabama and Auburn have open dates this week, so no projected scores for the Crimson Tide and Tigers.

A reminder that these picks are AGAINST THE SPREAD. That means that each person’s selection doesn’t necessarily mean he or she thinks that team will win outright, just that it will cover the point spread.

On with this week’s picks (all times Central and all games Saturday unless noted):

No. 3 Ohio State-Rutgers live stream (11/7): How to watch college football online, TV, time

Rutgers will be the latest to try and slow down No. 3 Ohio State and Justin Fields when the two meet on Saturday, Nov. 7. The game will be live streamed on fuboTV.

In Ohio State’s first play from scrimmage against Penn State, slot receiver Garrett Wilson took a handoff, cut around the wide open left end and romped 62 yards to set up the Buckeyes’ first score.

A big play and another hot start for No. 3 Ohio State (2-0, 2-0 Big Ten), which released its pent-up demand for scoring after having the Big Ten season delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. After rolling over Nebraska 52-17 in the opener, the Buckeyes piled up 526 yards of offense in taking down then-No. 18 Penn State 38-25 on Halloween.

Rutgers (1-1, 1-1) is next to try to slow down quarterback Justin Fields and Ohio State. A batch of transfers have bolstered

Barkley pledges $1M to Tuskegee University

TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) — NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley has pledged $1 million to Tuskegee University, marking his fifth major donation to a historically black college, the university announced.

The retired basketball star pledged the same amount to Miles College earlier this year. In 2016, he pledged $1 million to both Alabama A&M in Huntsville and Clark Atlanta University and in 2017 he pledged $1 million to Morehouse College in Atlanta.

“We are excited to learn that Mr. Barkley made it a priority to support Tuskegee University,” interim President Dr. Charlotte Morris said in a statement. “His philanthropy will play a crucial role in advancing the university’s strategic goals.”

The gift is unrestricted, but Barkley told he hopes it goes to academic scholarships.

Barkley is a native of Leeds, Alabama and a graduate of Auburn University. In 2000, he retired from the NBA as one of only four

Offense Cannot Muster Enough as Syracuse Falls to Boston College

Syracuse could not muster enough offense as Boston College knocked off the Orange 16-13 inside the Carrier Dome on Saturday. The loss was Syracuse’s fifth in a row, and drops their record to 1-6 on the season. 

The game was far from the prettiest you will see, with both teams having their share of offensive struggles. Boston College quarterback Phil Jurkovec missed some open receivers that stalled Eagles drives in the first half. Their kicker Aaron Boumerhi missed a 39 and 52 yard field goal as well. 


Syracuse had two drives where they really pushed tempo and appeared to be in a rhythm. Each stalled deep in Eagles territory, however, and Andre Szmyt converted both of his field goal attempts. Their only touchdown came with just 21 seconds left when

Louisville-Virginia live stream (11/7): How to watch college football online, TV, time

After snapping a four-game losing streak, Louisville looks to win consecutive games Saturday, Nov. 7, when it faces Virginia. The game will be live streamed on fuboTV.

The Cardinals (2-4, 1-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) were able to breath a sigh of relief after a 48-16 pummeling of Florida State to snap a four-game slide. To mount a modest winning streak Louisville needs to get past Virginia Tech (4-2, 4-2) in Saturday’s inaugural ACC meeting between the teams.

Winning seems to have given the Cardinals new motivation.

Louisville made quite a few plays against FSU, averaging 9.3 yards per snap while rolling up 569 on offense. The defense yielded 406 but registered two sacks, an interception and its second-lowest point total this season.

Those efforts will come in handy against a Tech squad looking to rebound from a mistake-marred 23-16 loss at Wake Forest. Interceptions thrown by Hendon Hooker killed two

College football winners and losers from Week 10 include Indiana, Liberty, Arizona State

Indiana entered this season a combined 2-61 since 1968 against Penn State and Michigan. The power structure in the Big Ten is clear and longstanding: Indiana occupies a rung well below the Nittany Lions and Wolverines, two of college football’s well-established bluebloods.



But not in 2020. This unpredictable and uncertain season has seen Indiana already notch victories against these two longtime bullies, setting the Hoosiers on pace for the program’s most successful season since the 1967 team won the Big Ten and reached the Rose Bowl.

And while beating Penn State two weeks ago took overtime and a memorable dive into the end zone by quarterback Michael Penix Jr., the Hoosiers’ 38-21 victory against Michigan on Saturday was a more thorough dismantling of an opponent only two weeks removed from being toasted as the Big Ten’s biggest threat to Ohio State.

Penn State vs. Maryland score: Live game updates, college football scores, NCAA highlights, full coverage

Taulia Tagovailoa’s tenure as Maryland’s quarterback got off to a rough start when the Alabama transfer struggled in the Terrapins’ season-opening blowout loss to Northwestern two weeks ago. But Tagovailoa has been rolling since and has helped carry Maryland to a 28-7 lead over Penn State in Happy Valley on Saturday.

The younger brother of former Alabama star and current Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa went 14-of-19 passing in the first half with 246 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions as the Nittany Lions struggled to contain a Maryland attack that outlasted Minnesota 45-44 in overtime last week.

Penn State’s porous first-half defense has put it at risk of falling to 0-3 for the first time since 2001. But allowing 335 yards in the first half to Maryland was just one of the Nittany Lions’ issues as quarterback Sean Clifford struggled to get anything going against a Maryland defense that

Issue provisional degree certificate, HC tells Rajiv Gandhi University- The New Indian Express

By Express News Service

BENGALURU: The Karnataka High Court while directing RGUHS to issue a provisional degree certificate to a student, said it hoped that the authorities will communicate to other universities to follow suit.

The court’s direction to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) comes in the wake of inconvenience being caused to students in getting admission to higher studies and applying for jobs on account of the delay in holding the convocation ceremony owing to Covid-19.

The court passed the order while allowing partly the petition filed by Lanson Brijesh Colaco, a student from Mangaluru, seeking directions to the university to issue a final MBBS degree certificate. “If the university fails to issue a certificate within two weeks, it has to pay Rs 5,000 per week to the petitioner, and the same should be recovered from officials responsible for delay,” the judge added.

Syracuse football battles Boston College tough but falls short in 16-13 loss

Syracuse, N.Y. — There just aren’t many paths to victory for a team as beat up as Syracuse.

It needs the kind of defensive performance it turned in Saturday against Boston College, largely avoiding the missed assignments that led to explosive scoring plays in past weeks.

It needs a little bit of fortune, such as BC’s stud Notre Dame-transfer quarterback misfiring on throws from short and deep distances.

It needs to win the special teams battle, knocking in field goals and uncorking a long return while BC misses a pair of kicks.

Even all that, apparently, is not enough to break through and give everyone the satisfaction of a winning feeling again.

Syracuse dropped to 1-7 on the year with a pedestrian 16-13 loss to Boston College in a game SU hung around in deep into the fourth quarter but never led.
