The 2020-21 college basketball season is one filled with change, so over here at the Power Rankings, we’re making changes too. Of course, you can still find our top 16 teams in the country every Monday morning, but we’re adding a few wrinkles this season. We will hand out awards — Player, Team, Win and Coach of the Week — and ask questions of three teams that struggled in the week that was. In other words, fewer meandering words in the introduction from me; we’re going to dive right into the best and brightest in college basketball each week.
And as far as the rankings go, expect plenty of change there, as well. The upcoming week will be no different. With V Week starting Tuesday — go here for more information — there are four marquee games on the docket on back-to-back nights: Kentucky vs. Kansas and Michigan State at
This is the first report of state-of-the-art performance for an activated carbon derived from a natural compound. The process for making the sorbents is similar to what is done to roast coffee, but with a secondary agent that etches nanoscale holes onto the material.
“Think of extremely dark roast holey coffee beans,” says co-author University of Texas at Austin and former Clarkson Professor David Mitlin. “The nanoscale holes, because of their strict sizes and surface chemistry, are very effective in trapping CO2 while keeping out water vapor. The CO2 is trapped reversibly in the carbon sorbent’s micropores, which can be reused once the CO2 is released from its pores.”
Wriedt notes that the dairy product used in the process would not be taken from the food supply.
He says that although milk consumption has declined more than 30 percent since 1980, there has been a 13 percent increase in annual
COVID-19 might be the only thing that can slow down Ohio State. For Northwestern, it was one-win Michigan State.
And just like that, the Big Ten’s playoff hopes may be close to vanishing.
It’s unclear when the Buckeyes will return to the field, and even though the eye test may say yes, their resume will be a few games short than others, at least. An unbeaten Wildcats’ team probably carries the conference’s flag into the CFP, but not after losing as a double-digit favorite to the Spartans.
On to this week’s rankings:
The Cornhuskers hung in there against Iowa, even tied at halftime, but ultimately lost, 26-20. After the game, the storyline was Scott Frost complaining about Iowa’s sideline clapping to throw off his quarterbacks’ snap counts. Maybe what kept Adrian Martinez and Luke McCaffrey out of rhythm was the constant rotation. Just a thought. After struggling
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller, the most famous walk-on in college football this season, isn’t ready to walk away from the sport.
After the soccer player-turned kicker became the first woman to play in a Power Five conference football game, Fuller said she wants to remain a member of the team.
“I’ll stay around as long as they want me, till they like, kick me off,” Fuller said Sunday. “So I’m here for the long run.”
Fuller stayed in the COVID-19 testing protocol and was attending meetings Sunday with Vanderbilt (0-8), a day after making history by kicking off to open the second half of a 41-0 loss to Missouri. Fuller executed a squib kick that traveled 30 yards before the ball was smothered by Missouri with no chance for a return.
Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason, who was fired Sunday, turned to Fuller because COVID-19 issues had left the
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller became the first woman to participate in a Power Five conference football game when she kicked off to start the second half against Missouri on Saturday.
Fuller kicked off the turf with a holder rather than using a tee, and she sent a low kick to the 35-yard line where it was pounced on by Missouri’s Mason Pack. Fuller didn’t get any opportunities in the first half as the Tigers opened a 21-0 lead over the Commodores.
Fuller, a senior goalkeeper on the Vanderbilt soccer team, joined the football team this week after helping the Commodores win the Southeastern Conference Tournament last weekend. COVID-19 protocols and restrictions left Vandy football coach Derek Mason with a limited number of specialists available against Missouri. Mason reached out to soccer coach Darren Ambrose for some help.
Fuller agreed to give football a try and practiced with
Vanderbilt kicker Sarah Fuller made history on Saturday when she kicked off at the start of the second half against Missouri, making her the first woman to play a snap in a Power Five college football game. Fuller, a starting goalkeeper on the Commodores’ SEC championship women’s soccer team, joined the football program this week after Vanderbilt lost multiple specialists due to COVID-19 issues.
Fuller’s squib kick was recovered by Missouri at its own 35-yard line.
“I just want to tell all the girls out there that you can do anything you set your mind to. You really can. If you have that mentality all the way through, you can do big things,” Fuller said after the game, a 41-0 loss for the Commodores.
“I think it’s amazing and incredible,” Fuller said Friday when it was determined she would dress and travel with Vanderbilt. “But I’m also trying to separate
Here is a look at Vanderbilt football placekicker Sarah Fuller practicing. Fuller helped Vanderbilt women’s soccer win the SEC tournament this fall.
Sarah Fuller gave a passionate halftime speech to her Vanderbilt team — her football team, that is — on Saturday.
It was an eyebrow-raising revelation on a day that featured plenty of hyperbole.
Fuller’s boldness on a team she joined five days ago was incredible enough. That she spoke up with the historic distinction of becoming the first woman to play in a Power Five college football game put it over the top.

Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller kicked off to start the second half against Missouri on Saturday, becoming the first woman to play in a Power Five football game.
It was a squib kick to the Missouri 35-yard line.
Fuller, a senior goalkeeper for Vanderbilt’s soccer team, was asked to join the football team this week after COVID-19 contact tracing depleted the roster of specialists. She was the only kicker that traveled with the Commodores to Columbia, Missouri, according to Vanderbilt spokesperson Alan George.
