    Breitbart SportsJanuary 10, 2017 The Clemson Tigers roared back from multiple deficits to roll back the Alabama Crimson Tide 35-31 last night. As Clemson celebrates avenging its loss from last year’s title game, Vegas anticipates another victory from Alabama in next year’s national championship. Well, the bookies actually favor the field over the Tide but the odds, in which bettors more than triple their money on an Alabama title, show that they prefer the pride of Tuscaloosa over any other team. Oddsmakers installed the Crimson Tide as the favorite to win the BCS National Championship next season. The bookies don’t...

    Star running back Ezekiel Elliott has apparently played his final home game for No. 3 Ohio State, and he wasn't pleased with the way it went down. After starting the week in the hospital with a previously undisclosed infection in his leg, the junior returned to the lineup Saturday afternoon, declared himself fully fit and then ripped the play calling in a 17-14 upset loss to No. 9 Michigan State at the Horseshoe. "How we lost, I just feel like we weren't put in the right opportunity to win this game, we weren't put in the right situations to win...

    Quarterback Will Grier helped lead Florida to a 6-0 start this season. Florida's undefeated run through the first half of the college football season will be a lot more difficult to match in the second half, as redshirt freshman quarterback Will Grier has been suspended. Florida coach Jim McElwain confirmed the suspension Monday, saying Grier failed an NCAA test for banned substances, and that the school will appeal the NCAA decision. Grier will practice with the team during the suspension, per McElwain. Grier addressed the media Monday, saying he took an over-the-counter supplement that had "something" in it and that...

    It's a twirl that now has some heads spinning. Just moments after seventh-ranked Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard crushed her opponent in 54 minutes to advance to the third round of the Australian Open on Wednesday, Australian commentator, Ian Cohen, asked her to “twirl” to show off her hot-pink outfit. The interviewer’s request has now sparked a flood of criticism and cries of sexism. In a video of the incident, Bouchard can be seen on the tennis court following her easy defeat of Kiki Bertens in the second round of the competition. Cohen then tells the 20-year-old: “Now yesterday, or...

    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Bo Pelini was fired on Sunday, ending the seven-year run of the polarizing figure as Nebraska's football coach. "We weren't good enough in the games that mattered," athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in his meeting with the media that lasted nearly 35 minutes. "I didn't see that changing at the end of the day." Eichorst said he will not use a search firm to assist him in finding the next coach. "This isn't a day of celebration for me," he said. "We've got a lot of good, young people in our program who are hurting." Eichorst said...
