KaRaun Kyzir White continue family legacy at West Virginia

Ka'Raun and Kyzir White are adding to the family legacy started by their older brother at No. 23 West Virginia.

Five things were keeping an eye on entering the second half of the 2017 season

Saturday taught us college football is still the best game in the world. Just when we were settling in for Alabama-Clemson III, everything changed. And that's only halfway through the season. While we're digesting the first half, here are five things to look forward to in the second half of the 2017 season. When the commissioners began seriously considering expansion of the BCS about 10 years ago, they determined it would be the best teams -- not necessarily conference champions -- playing for it all.

Athletic director Tom Jurich officially fired by Louisville board

It’s official: Tom Jurich is out as Louisville’s athletic director. The Cardinals board of directors voted 10-3 to oust the embattled AD on Wednesday afternoon, completing a pair of sweeping changes in the department following the growing college basketball scandal that has enveloped the school. Once one of the most powerful people in college athletics, Jurich was fighting to remain in his job ever since he was placed on administrative leave after the U.S. Attorney’s office in New York announced details of a wide-ranging investigation. Vincent Tyra will continue to serve as acting athletic director until a permanent hire is made. Perhaps the biggest effect on the football program following Jurich’s

Oklahoma vs Kansas St pits oldest youngest FBS coaches

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Bill Snyder coached his first game as Kansas State's head coach in 1989. At the time, Lincoln Riley had just turned six. Now, they will match wits. Kansas State's Snyder is, at 78, the oldest coach in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Riley, Oklahoma's 34-year-old prodigy, is the youngest. Their teams will face off Saturday when the ninth-ranked Sooners travel to Manhattan to face the Wildcats. Snyder has been a head coach for 26 years and has a career record of 205-108-1. In the months following his sudden offseason promotion to head coach, he has gained even more respect for Snyder's body of work. "I'm not going to be doing it at 78, I can tell you that much," Riley said.

Georgia Alabama duos stand out at SECs midseason point

The Southeastern Conference has produced upsets, letdowns, blowouts and frantic finishes — and it's only the midway point of the season. There have been surprises, disappointments and the usual dominance from top-ranked Alabama. The Tide and No. 3 Georgia are the league's only unbeaten teams and remain popular picks to reach the SEC championship game in early December. Both teams were well represented in midseason voting by Associated Press writers who cover the 14 SEC schools in 11 states. The results in several categories: Coach of the Year: Georgia's Kirby Smart. Smart has the Bulldogs rolling, notching impressive win after impressive win. And he's not just doing it with defense.
