The Missouri women's basketball team is off to a hot start. It's posted a 9-1 record to begin the season. Here are nine things we've learned about the team.
Michael Sam is the first player in Missouri history to earn a conference Defensive Player of the Year award from league coaches.
NCAA leaders are exploring ways to alter their governing structure, which would allow the colleges that can afford it to pay for certain expenses currently prohibited. That includes offering a stipend for the costs of attending school not covered by scholarships.
Robert Griffin III will be the inactive third quarterback for Washington's final three games, behind starter Kirk Cousins and backup Rex Grossman. Coach Mike Shanahan's reasoning is that he fears Griffin, who has taken a pounding in recent weeks, will get hurt, and that would ruin the franchise player's offseason.
AJ McCarron is the one Heisman candidate largely judged by a career that stands as perhaps the best among Alabama quarterbacks, a group that includes Joe Namath, Bart Starr and Ken Stabler.
The happiness expressed by Kentucky players after their victory over Boise State wasn't just because they played the type of game indicative of their abilities. For once, the 11th-ranked Wildcats had a performance to build from.
Jordan Lynch led No. 24 Northern Illinois (12-1) to within a victory of a second straight BCS berth after making the Orange Bowl last season. That possibility got doused with a 20-point loss to Bowling Green in the Mid-American Conference championship game, but the big prize still is out there for a senior who set the major college rushing record for yards rushing by a quarterback.
On Saturday, Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds will face Army for the second time. The focus, of course, is to lead the Midshipmen to a victory over their most bitter rival and claim the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy, awarded annually to the team with the best record in games involving the three major service academies.
The Kansas City Chiefs have players from smaller schools who've made a difference in the team's 10-win season.
