Blame Grigson, not Luck, for Colts' mess

"When you pay Andrew what we did, it's going to take some time to build on the other side of the ball," said Colts GM Ryan Grigson, who has had plenty of time and not much to show for it in Indy.

    En octubre: Sin bullpen no hay paraíso

    Contar con un cuerpo de relevistas eficaz ha pasado de ser un lujo a ser una necesidad para todos los equipos de Grandes Ligas, fundamentalmente para esos que juegan béisbol en octubre en busca de un anillo de Serie Mundial.

It's as live in Tiger Stadium as it has been all season. LSU followed yet another highlight-reel Leonard Fournette TD run -- he has seven carries for 249 yards and three TDs -- with a three-and-out and two sacks of Chad Kelly. Ole Miss has hung tough, but it feels like LSU is on the verge of busting this thing open, up 28-21 in the third quarter.

The ViewFromVegas is they were -200 series favorites but +120 home underdogs tonight.

Samuel blows past defense for TD

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

SMU is about to secure a huge win, leading No. 11 Houston 38-14. It will be by far the biggest win of the Chad Morris era, who took over a program that was in shambles prior to last season and is slowly trying to rebuild the talent base and get the Mustangs back to respectability. This is a huge step in that direction.

An update on Mississippi State OL Darryl Williams: he has movement in all of his extremities. That's positive news after Williams left Commonwealth Stadium on a stretcher. Sideline reporter Quint Kessenich said Williams was "a little numb," according to Mississippi State sports information director Bill Martin. Williams fell to the turf after a 36-yard Westin Graves field goal and was motionless for several minutes. Kentucky leads Mississippi State 27-24 late in the third quarter in Lexington.

Penn State kicker/folk hero Joey Julius just added another tackle to his resume, by tripping up Paris Campbell on the opening return of the third quarter. It wasn't his hardest hit, but it was a tackle nonetheless. That's three tackles this season.
