The initial prognosis on Andrew Bogut is a hyperextended right knee. "We don't think it's terribly serious," coach Rick Carlisle said. "At this point, it appears we dodged a bullet."

Zeke's never lost on the road -- ever

The Cowboys haven't lost on the road this season. Per ESPN Stats & Info, that adds to an incredible streak for RB Ezekiel Elliott:

  • He never lost a road game in his three varsity seasons at John Burroughs School in Ladue, Mo. (2010-12)
  • He never lost a road game during his three seasons at Ohio State (2013-15). The Buckeyes were 14-0 in road games, and he accumulated stats in 11 of them.

Texas RB D'Onta Foreman had an incredible season with an FBS-leading 2,028 rushing yards in only 11 games. But Texas didn't play in a single game that mattered from a national perspective, and I think that (and the 5-7 record) explains the Heisman snub.

No Heisman finalist nods for Dalvin Cook, D'Onta Foreman, Donnel Pumphrey or Jeremy McNichols. It's just the fourth time since 1992 that no running back has finished in the top five.
