Scene of the Week: No. 2 Ohio State Defeats No. 8 Penn State
Ohio State clinched its spot in the Big Ten Championship, defeating Penn State 28-17 this past Saturday. It was a total domination by the Buckeyes, led by defensive end Chase Young who showed the world how talented he truly is totaling three and a half sacks, four tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles, and breaking Ohio State’s single season sack record.
The Ohio State University now turns their attention to Michigan, as the Buckeyes travel to Ann Arbor for a big rivalry game against the Wolverines on (date).
Take of the Week: Auburn Defeats Alabama in The Iron Bowl?
The Auburn Tigers are a lot more solid than some make them out to be. And they will prove that this weekend. While Bo Nix has flaws in his game, the true freshman has potential and will see a win against Alabama this weekend.
The Tigers have lost three games this year — all against teams who are currently in the top ten. Auburn also defeated Oregon at the beginning of the season, who have had a very successful season.
But another reason Auburn will defeat Alabama on Saturday is the loss of Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa. Alabama will now have to rely on backup QB Mac Jones who had a solid game against Western Carolina this past Saturday but will face a dominant Auburn defense next weekend. Nix will outplay Jones and will give Auburn the Iron Bowl Trophy.
Memphis Center James Wiseman, Suspended 12 Games
It all started three weeks ago as potential No. 1 pick, James Wiseman, was suspended indefinitely for violating the NCAA rules for his (what did he do). It was then announced that Wiseman would miss 12 games and not return until Jan. 12.
Memphis is appealing his suspension, and Wiseman has subsequently avoided major punishment. He may even be back in time for Memphis’ conference games. This is a huge and surprising win for the Tigers.
Maple Leafs Fire HC Mike Babock
The Toronto Maple Leafs have fired HC Mike Babock after just more than four seasons with the team. After months of waiting in agony, Leaf fans rejoiced as the organization finally pulled the plug and hired Sheldon Keefe as their full-time head coach.
The Maple Leafs are currently 10-10-4 and fourth in the Atlantic Division and should look forward to this change of pace.
