No ranked team had a more different first two games than Tony Bennett’s Virginia Cavaliers. On Wednesday, they opened with an 89-54 blowout of Towson in which they made 15 of the 29 3-pointers they attempted. Looked great. But then, on Friday, they suffered a 61-60 loss to San Francisco in which they missed nine of the 12 3-pointers they attempted. Looked terrible.

“[We have to] look in the mirror [and] grow from it,” Bennett told reporters after Friday’s loss.

The good news is that if there’s any program built to do exactly that, it’s probably the one that in 2018 became the first No. 1 seed in NCAA Tournament history to lose to a No. 16 seed before bouncing back in 2019 and winning the NCAA Tournament. In other words, I’m not concerned about Virginia’s ability to bounce back. But

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 scores, NCAA top 25 rankings, Week 13: Oregon stumbles, Iowa holds off Nebraska

Friday’s college football slate served as a nice appetizer for the Saturday ahead, and also brought some affirmation of where teams were slotted in Tuesday’s first College Football Playoff Rankings. In particular, No. 15 Oregon’s ranking seemed more appropriate after the Ducks blew an 11-point halftime lead and lost 41-38 to rival Oregon State.

Some thought Oregon had been underrated in the debut CFP Rankings, but Friday ended that line of thinking while also bringing good results for a couple of other squads that some believed were overrated in the first poll. Take Iowa, for example. After checking in at No. 24 on Tuesday, the Hawkeyes received some criticism. But the they extended their winning streak to four games on Friday by sneaking past Nebraska 26-20 and proving that maybe they deserve to be ranked after all.

Finally, No. 13 Iowa State and No. 2 Notre Dame won as well

College Football’s Top Plays: Week 13 – Friday

If you didn’t get your football fill on Thanksgiving, there is plenty of college football to feast on the day after.

The day started with No. 13 Iowa State making history by defeating No. 17 Texas – and continued with No. 2 Notre Dame remaining undefeated after finishing No. 19 UNC.

Let’s dig in.

Notre Dame is next level

The Fighting Irish continue to roll after a 31-17 victory over the Tar Heels, and Ian Book is 29-3 as the starter for ND.

Book can make textbook plays, and then also plays like this.

And on this one, Book made six out of nothing, avoiding disaster to put points on the board.

Classiest tradition in college football

The Hawkeyes started the ‘Kinnick Wave,’ a tradition where both teams wave to the children watching from the windows of the University of Iowa’s Stead Family Children’s Hospital that overlooks Kinnick Stadium at

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.

College football picks, schedule: Predictions against the spread, odds for top 25 games in Week 13

While the college football schedule continues to be ravaged by postponements and cancellations due to COVID-19, the Week 13 slate is full of important games. There were three top 25 showdowns on Friday with two matchups between ranked teams, and there’s a number of big games on Saturday as well, including No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 22 Auburn, which will serve as the SEC on CBS Game of the Week.

It should be no surprise that the Iron Bowl is the spotlight game of what is normally Rivalry Week, but this year’s showdown comes with added intrigue as Alabama coach Nick Saban will be sidelined due to COVID-19. Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian will step in as de facto coach for the game as Mac Jones & Co. look to continue on their journey to a College Football Playoff berth.

Elsewhere on the slate, the rest of the top six is
