College football scores, NCAA top 25 rankings, schedule, games today: Florida, Oklahoma State in early action

After two straight weeks off, Clemson is returning to the field Saturday with something to prove. The Tigers sit at No. 3 in the College Football Playoff Rankings and can ill-afford a lackluster performance against Pittsburgh with No. 5 Texas A&M and No. 6 Florida also in action Saturday as the race for CFP positioning heats up.

The 7-1 Tigers might have their hands full with a Panthers team that improved to 5-4 with a 47-14 thrashing of Virginia Tech last week. If Clemson slips up, the Aggies or Gators could be ready to slide into the playoff picture. Texas A&M is seeking revenge for last year’s 50-7 loss to LSU, while No. 6 Florida will be looking to to keep its offense rolling against a Kentucky team that gave up 63 points to Alabama last week. Meanwhile, No. 7 Cincinnati should have no trouble against Temple but will be

College football games on CBS Sports Network — Watch Buffalo vs. Kent State live stream

Two of three remaining undefeated teams in the MAC will square off on Saturday when Buffalo plays host to Kent State on CBS Sports Network to highlight the network’s holiday slate that spans three days and includes five games. The action begins Friday night with a battle of teams from The Great Lake State and concludes Saturday night when Navy hosts Memphis.

But the headliner arguably comes early on Saturday, when Buffalo and Kent State square off. The teams are tied atop the league’s East division standings at 3-0 at the halfway point of the MAC’s conference-only schedule, and they can ill-afford to lose if they hope to appear in the MAC Championship Game on Dec. 18.

The projected point total of 68 suggests it will be a high-scoring affair as do the recent results of both teams. The Golden Flashes are averaging 52.7 points per game and 616 yards

College football scores, NCAA top 25 rankings, schedule, games today: Oregon vs. Oregon State rivalry

The disruptions to the 2020 college football schedule have been vast, but the arrival of Thanksgiving weekend brings some welcome consistency. Per usual, there will be a handful of quality games on Friday in addition to the usual Saturday slate this week as we munch on leftovers. Headlining the Friday action is an ACC showdown between No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 19 North Carolina, but there will also be critical games in the Big 12 and Pac-12 as well.

Positioning in the race for a spot in the Big 12 title game is at stake in a game between No. 13 Iowa State and No. 17 Texas. Meanwhile, out West, No. 15 Oregon will look to show College Football Playoff voters that the Ducks were underestimated in Tuesday’s first batch of CFP Rankings as they face off against rival Oregon State. Elsewhere, No. 24 Iowa will take on Nebraska

SU is only college in state system bringing students back after Thanksgiving


Incoming Salisbury University chief diversity officer Joan Williams explains her plans for the upcoming academic year.

Salisbury Daily Times

Salisbury University students will return to campus Monday following the institution’s traditional Thanksgiving break.

However, SU is the only institution within the University System of Maryland to bring students back to campus for in-person instruction, opting not to end the semester early or transition to a virtual platform for the remainder of its class schedule.

This only includes the 12 schools that fall under the USM. The state currently holds a 6.3% positivity rate and has recently taken extra precautions to combat the virus. 

The decision stems from the university’s ability to keep its COVID-19 cases minimal. As of Friday, Nov. 27, SU has a 1.4% positivity rate, confirming 21 cases out of nearly 1,500 tests over a seven-day span.

Salisbury University administrators and staff helped a small number of

MUNCIE, Ind. — When Justin Hall became a part of the Ball State football program, he knew he was going to play early, play hard whenever he was out on the field and devote himself to getting better whenever he was off of it.

The Georgia native didn’t need practices or games to instill that confidence in himself. All those years growing up playing basketball with his older brother and his older brother’s friends did that. Because although Hall’s older brother has three years on him, Hall said by about his eighth grade year he was catching up to those now-high schoolers who used to always be far better than him at everything.

And so, that’s how Hall has played for the Cardinals,

Oregon State annihilates Northwest University

Oregon State scored 30 consecutive points during a first-half run-away Friday en route to a 114-42 victory over visiting Northwest University (WA) in a nonconference game.

Ethan Thompson scored a game-high 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting to lead six Beavers in double figures as Oregon State (2-0) scored its second consecutive home win in the three-team, three-day event.

The Beavers had beaten Pacific-12 rival California 71-63 in a nonconference game on Wednesday.

Northwest, an NAIA program playing less than 24 hours after losing 86-61 to Cal, actually led 5-4 after Pa’Treon Lee’s hoop in the game’s third minute and was within 11-7 after another Lee basket before the onslaught began.

Thompson had 10 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, in the run that opened a 41-7 margin with 5:14 remaining in the half.

J.R. Delgado’s 3-pointer ended Northwest’s drought eight seconds before it would have reached a full 10 minutes.
