    INDIANAPOLIS — The Chiefs deserved that fate, even if looked they might escape it for the better part of 55 minutes Sunday. They are 2-1 after a brutal 20-17 loss in Indianapolis that leaves some questions about the offense, more questions about the special teams and one really intriguing question: What the heck did Chris Jones say to Matt Ryan? For now, the five observations from immediately ...

      A special meeting of the Georgia Tech Athletic Association board has been called for Monday afternoon, a school spokesman told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Sunday morning. He did not disclose details of the meeting, but it’s a strong indication that a decision about a change in the leadership of the football program has been made. That could mean either athletic director Todd Stansbury ...

        This guy was going backwards, but it was worth it. Chandramouli, 35, broke the world record for driving 16 kilometers (10 miles) in reverse by covering the distance in 29 minutes, 10 seconds in Tamil Nadu, India. Or roughly minus-20 miles per hour.

          SEATTLE — Kalen DeBoer said it in passing, a throwaway line with prophetic effects. “I still feel like a huge strength of ours is getting after the quarterback,” UW’s first-year coach mentioned Monday, despite his Huskies producing just seven sacks in their first three games. “We’ll be able to do that as we go through the season, making teams one-dimensional.” Five days later, the Husky pass ...

            CORVALLIS, Ore. — The trap was laid, just like it had been many times before. Another USC football team with title potential driving toward destiny, only to take a dangerous detour through the Willamette Valley to Oregon State, where nothing ever seems to go as planned for the Trojans. It’d been a decade since their last defeat here, but the specter of those ill-fated trips still loomed, years ...

              NORMAN, Okla. — The Oklahoma football team will benefit from at least one unexpected perk when it leaves the Big 12 for the SEC. It will no longer have to play Kansas State every season. The Wildcats were once again a thorn in the Sooners’ side on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. K-State defeated Oklahoma, 41-34, for a road upset that few of the 84,376 in attendance saw coming. K-State (3-1, 1-0 ...

              LEXINGTON, Ky. — The appetizers are finished. It’s time for the main course of Kentucky football’s 2022 season. No. 8 Kentucky closed its September slate with a 31-23 win over Northern Illinois to move to 4-0 on the season. Like the previous nonconference wins over Miami (Ohio) and Youngstown State, Saturday’s win was not always pretty, but Kentucky did just enough to ensure it returns to SEC ...

              BOULDER, Colo. — Nearly a month into the season, UCLA’s toughest opponent continues to be the UC regents. Colorado showed some early spunk Saturday before quickly folding, the winless Buffaloes unlike that governing board that remains poised to threaten the Bruins’ move to the Big Ten Conference. UCLA was so comfortably ahead on the way to its 45-17 victory that quarterback Dorian ...

              DENVER — Rookie head coach Nathaniel Hackett has called in some help. After his first two games as Broncos coach were marred by game management issues, the team hired Jerry Rosburg as a senior assistant, a league source confirmed. Rosburg, a longtime Ravens assistant who was the special teams coordinator and associate head coach to John Harbaugh, will help Hackett with game and clock ...

              MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The University of Miami’s only week off of the 2022 football season will not be an uplifting one for the No. 25 and soon-to-be-unranked Hurricanes. In UM’s final nonconference game of the season, the 25 1/2-point favorite Hurricanes were upset, 45-31, by Middle Tennessee State for their second consecutive loss and a 2-2 record as they head toward eight consecutive ...

              PITTSBURGH — If Frank Cignetti Jr.'s offense didn't get enough reps this week in practice, the offensive coordinator for No. 24 Pitt made sure the group saw plenty of action on Saturday. Long, methodical drives were the story of the day for the Panthers, who earned a 45-24 victory over Rhode Island on Saturday afternoon at Acrisure Stadium. Similar to the week prior against Western Michigan, ...

              WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Clemson just passed its biggest test yet. Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to tight end Davis Allen and Clemson’s defense stopped Wake Forest one possession later as the No. 5 Tigers escaped with a 51-45 double-overtime win over No. 21 Wake Forest on Saturday afternoon at Truist Field. Uiagalelei threw for 371 yards and five touchdown passes and ...

              LOS ANGELES — Jimmy Garoppolo is the NFL's most photogenic quarterback this side of Tom Brady. But for at least the last couple seasons, when they looked at Garoppolo, the San Francisco 49ers only saw the photo negative. Their focus wasn't what Garoppolo could do, but what he couldn't. He doesn't have a Juggs machine for a right arm, and his passes don't leave vapor trails. He'd prefer to ...

              PHILADELPHIA — After driving a ball 103.8 mph through a 17-mph crosswind and into the left-field seats in the fourth inning Friday night, Rhys Hoskins did what must have felt natural to him in the moment. He spiked his bat. It is football season, after all. Hoskins was drafted and developed by the Phillies. He got to the majors in 2017, before the club’s rebuilding process was far enough along ...

              KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In Rome on Wednesday morning, Mark Mangino went to St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City for a Papal Audience with Pope Francis. “I got within 10-12 feet of him!” he said via text message. Even amid an amazing trip, though, Mangino wanted to take a moment to convey his thoughts about the 3-0 start by Kansas football in its second season under coach Lance Leipold. Entering its ...

              BALTIMORE — Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team has agreed to terms with Jason Pierre-Paul pending a physical, and he expects the veteran edge rusher to reach game readiness quickly once he arrives. “It’ll be hard to know until we see him; he worked out though, so we have a pretty good idea that he looks good,” Harbaugh said after practice Friday. “As soon as he’s ready, he wants to play. ...

              SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Jimmy Garoppolo’s favorite — and, basically, only — receiver this training camp: Cam Bustos, a 6-foot-3, 22-year-old staffer in the 49ers’ health and performance department. “He actually had a nice catch radius, man. He was a high school receiver,” Garoppolo said, in a complimentary way. “I got his whole story. We spent a lot of time together.” Garoppolo-to-Kittle, this ...

              LEXINGTON, Ky. — For the Kentucky football offense, it is go time. With the heart of the SEC schedule looming, the Kentucky attack needs to take a big step upward starting with Saturday night’s non-league tilt with Mid-American Conference favorite Northern Illinois at Kroger Field. UK’s felt-urgency was on display Monday at Mark Stoops’ weekly news conference as the Kentucky head man looked ...

              LOS ANGELES — Grayson Murphy knows what it's like to go into the bathroom, look in the mirror and see another version of himself. Because he's standing right there. That familiar face brushes his teeth in unison every morning, after always getting up at the same time. The practically indistinguishable pair will go on to eat the same breakfast, complete the same football practice, attend the ...

              PHILADELPHIA — When N. Jeremi Duru, a lawyer and expert in sports law, advocated for the Rooney Rule after it was implemented across the league, he described it as an “extremely controversial” time. While serving as counsel for the Fritz Pollard Alliance, an organization comprised of coaches, scouts, and executives of color in the NFL, Duru and the rest of the group wanted more opportunities ...

              LOS ANGELES — As they prepare for their NFC West opener against the Arizona Cardinals, the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday continued making moves to fortify a roster depleted by injuries and a suspension. A day after signing edge rusher Takkarist McKinley, the Rams signed tight end Kendall Blanton and defensive back Shaun Jolly to the roster and veteran running back Malcolm Brown to the practice ...
