There are many ways in which teams choose a team captain or captains. Washington State coach Mike Leach has tried them all. Leach revealed his hilarious reason for choosing junior running back Jamal Morrow as the Cougars’ captain at Monday’s press conference.
Oklahoma’s defense has not had the best of weeks. The Sooners gave up 59 points on Saturday to Texas Tech and allowed quarterback Patrick Mahomes to set an FBS record for total offense as he did just about whatever he wanted in the passing game. While the team ultimately won the game, giving up that many points and yards has naturally led to some questions about Oklahoma’s defensive coordinator.
Edmond Sumner is a big reason why Xavier is likely going to be a preseason top-10 team. On Saturday night, during Musketeer Madness, Sumner won the team’s dunk contest when he took off from the foul line. Sumner defeated freshmen Tyrique Jones and Quentin Goodin. J.P. Macura, the reigning Big East Sixth Man of the Year, took home the honors last year. The 6-foot-6 redshirt sophomore is coming off a debut season in which he averaged 11.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.
