  • No. 9 Texas A&M seeks rebound from first loss

    Damage control the seemed to be the theme this week following the 33-14 loss to No. 1 Alabama as ninth-ranked Texas A&M steps out of conference play to host New Mexico State. The loss to the Crimson Tide doesn't completely eliminate the Aggies (6-1, 4-1 SEC) from the West Division race, but it does leave the in position of needing help in the form of at least one loss for Alabama to get to the SEC title game. A&M quarterback Trevor Knight commented that he has seen one-loss teams still getting to where they want to go in a season, but coach Kevin Sumlin is taking a more focused approach.

  • No. 13 Broncos eye New Year's bowl

    Boise State finds itself in the favorite's role when it comes to landing the coveted New Year's Six bowl bid that goes to the top team that isn't associated with a power conference.
