Just three days after No. 25 Louisiana’s game against Central Arkansas was canceled — with 33 players out after positive coronavirus tests and contact tracing — the team announced on Twitter Saturday that coach Billy Napier had tested positive for COVID-19.
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Northern Arizona University cracked down on students who hadn’t received mandatory COVID-19 testing by locking them out of their online classes, a move that prompted most to get into compliance.
University spokeswoman Kimberly Ott said about 25 students were notified early in the past week they wouldn’t have continued access to the online instruction system because they didn’t get tests or seek an exemption even after three email notifications and a phone call, the Arizona Daily Sun reported.… Read More
Had the Buckeyes walloped the impressive, top-10 Hoosiers as appeared likely at 35-7 just after halftime, it would have reinforced the idea of a Clemson-Alabama-Ohio State-Oklahoma tier that has hogged 17 of the first 24 College Football Playoff berths, and has sapped the cross-country variety and possibility that boosts the sport. When the Hoosiers assembled a flurry of gorgeous plays to arrange two late possessions from only one score down — neither got close to scoring — it signaled a hope for the ambitious stragglers and a need to keep paying attention.
If nothing else, the game reminded that very young people play this sport, which can sustain its unpredictability even when times seem predictable. Yet there was not nothing else, but something else.
“There’s no question the gap has been closed,” Indiana Coach Tom Allen said, even if by “closed,” he seemed to mean “closed some” or “narrowed.” “We’re
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Master Teague ran a career-high 169 yards and two touchdowns, Justin Fields accounted for three scores and No. 3 Ohio State held off a comeback bid by Michael Penix Jr., Ty Fryfogle and No. 9 Indiana to win 42-35 on Saturday.
The Hoosiers (4-1) rallied from a four-touchdown deficit in the second half and made it a one-score game with 10:26 left, when Penix and Fryfogle connected on a 56-yard touchdown.
Penix was 27 of 51 for a career-high 491 yards and five touchdown passes..
The Buckeyes (4-0) put up 607 yards and led 35-7 early in the second half, but struggled to contain Penix and Fryfogle, who caught seven passes for 218 yards and three touchdowns.
Fields was 18
No. 3 Ohio State held on to beat No. 9 Indiana 42-35 in a roller coaster of a game on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio. The Buckeyes were able to survive a couple of turnovers early in the game to take a 28-7 lead into the locker room at halftime, and it seemed they were well on their way to a comfortable victory. Indiana had other ideas.
While the Hoosiers weren’t able to capitalize on the turnovers early, they were able to exploit Ohio State’s secondary in the second half to make it a game. Time and again, Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. found open receivers in the secondary to cut into the Ohio State lead. The Hoosiers came back to make it a 42-35 game in the fourth quarter and then forced an Ohio State turnover on downs inside the Indiana 10-yard line late. That’s when the Buckeyes defense saved
Mississippi State and Georgia face off in an SEC battle Saturday (11/21) in Athens, Ga. You can stream the game live via fuboTV.
The Georgia Bulldogs are back at home, eager to prove they’re still one of the best teams in the nation.
But these are strange times between the hedges.
For the first time since 2016, the No. 13 Bulldogs are no longer in control of their own fate.
Two Southeastern Conference losses took care of that.
“It’s definitely a little bit different,” punter Jake Camarda said. “At least for me, this is the first season where it’s really not in our hands.”
The game is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. Central (7:30 p.m. ET) and will be live streamed by fuboTV, which is offering a 7-day free trial. SEC Network is televising the game.

So much has been written about the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) and its evolution over the past few years that it appears necessary to have the essential features and their critique duly contextualised and articulated in a book, authored by a person who has both a macro-vision of the sector and a direct experience of implementation problems at the micro-level. This book by Narendra Jadhav, a prolific writer and educationist who had served as vice-chancellor of Pune University and later as a member (education and skill development) at the Planning Commission, seeks to fulfill this need.
There are a few characteristics of the book that merit attention. Firstly, it provides a historical perspective of the sector and traces its contours since the appointment of the University Education Commission under the chairmanship of Dr S Radhakrishnan
For several years, the Lone Star College System has been talking about creating an online college that would allow students to get their degrees completely online. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated these plans since the college system moved about half of its classes completely online this year.
“We have the largest online enrollment of any standalone community college in the country,” Chancellor Stephen Head said.… Read More
Indiana intercepted Justin Fields twice, sacked Fields twice and struck on a 68-yard completion.
With the score tied 7-7 in the second quarter, the Hoosiers looked capable of pulling off a mammoth upset in the Big Ten, one that would’ve stood as perhaps the best victory in program history — easily the program’s most important victory in decades — and rewritten the College Football Playoff debate just days before the selection committee meets to unveil the first rankings of the regular season.
Ohio State’s next three drives: 24 plays, 244 yards and three scores. The Buckeyes’ opening drive of the second half traveled 75 yards on six plays to make it 35-7.
