Ohio State or Alabama for final spot?

05 December 2017

Running back Chris James's one-yard plunge cut the lead to five, and after a lengthy delay to fix a patch of ripped turf at the goal line, Hornibrook completed a two-point conversion throw to tight end Troy Fumagalli. His last attempt on fourth-and-20 was intercepted by Ohio State's Damon Webb - which sealed the victory in the final minute. His touchdown immediately followed Dobbins's 77-yard run, a sprint that set the Buckeyes single-season freshman rushing record, breaking the mark Maurice Clarett had set in 2002. The Buckeyes have won three straight overall and nine of 10.

We're now left with a plethora of tweets delegitimizing Alabama's success while promoting a two-loss Ohio State team.

Clemson held on to its No. 1 spot in the final Associated Press Top 25 college football poll of the regular season.

Missing Florida teen spotted in NC found safe in NY
Frisina and Rodriguez were spotted on cameras in Georgia on Sunday and then at a pawn shop in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Rodriguez and the teen had been around each other "at sports events, but they've never been alone at all", Smith said.

Essentially, had Ohio State's early season loss to No. 2 Oklahoma been its only one, we're looking at a high-likelihood that the Buckeyes rank number one. In addition, they can point to Penn State previous year and Stanford in 2015. That drew howls from those favoring conference champions being rewarded.

Now Ohio State awaits its fate.

Concerns about the College Football Playoff aside, Ohio State prepared this past week uncertain how much Barrett would be able to play, or if he would be effective doing so. Barrett, according to published reports, had arthroscopic surgery last Sunday to clean up a torn meniscus. Barrett says he is healthy enough to play after missing the end of last week's game with a knee problem. It's not certain if or how much he'll play, but backup Dwayne Haskins performed well in Barrett's absence against MI and shouldn't be discounted if he's called into action again.

Aaron Boone to be named next manager of Yankees
Of course, Red Sox fans remember Boone for his iconic walk-off homer to send the Yankees to the World Series in 2003. Cashman later said he was concerned over "ability to fully engage, communicate, connect with the playing personnel".

That would not be the case however, as the Ohio State offense stalled for the entirety of the second half. Barrett absorbed his first significant contact while being tackled during a third-down scramble on Ohio State's opening possession but popped right up without any apparent discomfort. Denzel Ward was every bit of a future first-round draft pick, recording two passes defensed to go along with his first quarter interception.

Dobbins finished with 174 yards on 17 carries, while Barrett completed 12-of-26 passes for 211 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Bryant completed 23-of-29 passes for 252 yards, one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown. They were sitting at No. 6 in the first CFP ranking of the season and had chances to move up with Michigan State, Michigan and a potential Big Ten title game waiting on the schedule. Despite the Clemson running backs only combining for 69 yards, they contributed four touchdowns in the Tigers' victory.

Guardiola sad to see Pogba miss Manchester derby
United were certainly indebted to their goalkeeper at the Emirates, and Mourinho was effusive in his praise after the game. The Frenchman deservedly received a straight red card and will miss three games, including next week's derby against City.
