The MAC Championship kicks off at 7 PM on Friday Dec. 2nd, the PAC-12 at 9 PM. You can catch the #MACtion between Western Michigan and Ohio on ESPN2, the #PAC12AfterDark between Washington and Colorado on FOX.

I’ll be at Ford Field as a proud Ohio Bobcat alum…one who happens to live in West MI and has seen P.J. Fleck’s Broncos twice in person this year. My eyes will be on a handful of players, including an individual matchup preview for the Senior Bowl next month.

That would be Western Michigan right tackle Taylor Moton against Ohio defensive end Tarell Basham. While Basham primarily lines up against the left tackle (WMU’s junior Chukwuma Okorafor is a better prospect there than Moton), he does move around the formation.

Basham isn’t a top-shelf athlete but is a good enough of one to win with either speed or power. He’s got a (read more…)

After enjoying a dominant 2016 season at Texas, junior running back D’Onta Foreman has decided to declare for the 2017 NFL draft.  Foreman totaled 323 carries for 2,028 yards and 15 touchdowns in what was one of the best seasons of any running back this year.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has a chance to become the first rookie to lead the NFL in rushing since Eric Dickerson did it with the Los Angeles Rams in 1983. The Cowboys are expected to continue feeding Elliott the rock, unfazed by his workload through the first 11 games of his pro career.

Elliott, who was selected by the Cowboys in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft, has paired with fellow rookie Dak Prescott to revitalize a Dallas franchise that appears destined for a deep playoff run.
