Florida and Colorado have scheduled a home-and-home series beginning in 2028. The schools announced the agreement Wednesday. Most of the players who will take part in the first game between the schools are still in elementary and middle schools. The first game will take place Sept. 9, 2028 in Gainesville, with the Gators traveling to Boulder, Colorado for another non-conference contest on Sept. 8, 2029. The programs have combined for four national titles and 35 conference crowns. The Gators have been reluctant to schedule many home-and-home series outside their annual rivalry with Florida State. They face Miami in Orlando this fall and scheduled a two-for-one with South Florida that begins in 2021. Florida hasn't played a non-conference, home-and-home series outside of the Sunshine State since facing Memphis State in 1988-89. The Gators haven't played a non-conference road game outside of Florida since traveling to Syracuse in 1991.

Browns get Greedy, add LSU CB in 2nd round

After falling to the second round of the NFL draft, cornerback Greedy Williams said he's excited to pair with Denzel Ward, who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie with the Browns last season.

Vanderbilt CB Joejuan Williams is a perfect fit for the Patriots defense. Williams has a 6-foot-4, 211 pound frame with press skills. And he will play the ball at the point of attack. That works in New England's single-high, man-coverage schemes.

Denver trades up to get quarterback Drew Lock at No. 42. I love the pick. Lock has the best arm in the class, though he has inconsistent accuracy. And Joe Flacco is on notice for the second straight year.
