Big CFB Weekend

With a minuscule margin of error, every weekend is technically a huge one for college football teams but there's no denying that this mid-October weekend feels bigger. From Bama-A&M to Michigan State-Michigan, this is the type of weekend that changes the playoff conversation.

And, in case you missed it (which you definitely did), Boise State committed eight turnovers in their blowout loss to Utah State on Friday night. The Broncos threw three interceptions and lost FIVE fumbles. FIVE!

The Sooners' flight was delayed eight hours, meaning they didn't arrive in their hotel rooms until 2:00 AM. The drive to Manhattan from Norman is only 308 miles, or 4 hours and 30 minutes. Whoops.


Bautista Has Competition

A Korean bat-flipping hero signed with an American management company and might come to Major League Baseball soon.

Most diehard sports fans can nail Jeopardy!'s occasional sports categories but a Final Jeopardy! clue last week stumped not only the three contestants but most viewers at home:


Grand Slam Single

Saturday marked the 16th anniversary of Robin Ventura's "Grand Slam Single" that beat the Braves in Game 5 of the NLCS. With the bases loaded and the game tied, Ventura just needed a base hit to send the series to Game 6, but elected for the home run instead.
