With the first season of Statcast™ behind us, let’s run down a roster of 2015’s All-Statcast™ Team. This isn’t the same thing as “the best player at each position,“ because you’ll notice there’s no Bryce Harper, Clayton Kershaw or Buster Posey. Let’s think of this more as “really good players who stood out in a new, interesting way.“ C — Yasmani Grandal, Dodgers
Notre Dame beat Boston College, 19-16, Saturday at Fenway Park in Boston, but the Irish looked sloppy in victory, committing five turnovers — three in the red zone. Will the lack of style points hurt their College Football Playoff chances?
It was easy to toss Baylor out of the playoff race after a double-digit home loss to Oklahoma. It’s a lot harder now, after the No. 10 Bears beat previously unbeaten No. 6 Oklahoma State 45-35 in Stillwater on Saturday night.
Ole Miss handed LSU a 38-17 beat down and piled a third consecutive loss on the backs of the Tigers. After starting 7-0, those three losses look brutally bad. It’s also the first time in the Les Miles era that LSU has dropped three in a row.
For the second time in three seasons, Michigan State ended Ohio State’s undefeated run, as Spartans kicker Michael Geiger made a 41-yard field goal as time expired to beat the No. 3 Buckeyes 17-14 on Saturday afternoon in Columbus.
The top-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels made the mistake of traveling to Cedar Falls, Iowa to take on Northern Iowa and it cost them. UNC fell to the Panthers 71-67 in the biggest upset of an already crazy early college basketball season.
On Saturday, The Citadel ended a 27-game skid against FBS opponents that spanned the past 23 years, beating South Carolina in a thrilling 23-22 road win. Bulldogs head coach Mike Houston thinks his team is a force to be reckoned with.
