Penn State ends up scoring on a play the Auburn tackler was so worried about getting a targeting call, that he tried to arm tackle at the one yard line, and of course he failed to stop the ball carrier's momentum and he scored the near clinching TD!
That targeting call on Auburn is the worst I’ve ever seen

Great throw and catch for Wash to take a 277-26 lead! But don't they have to survive contact with the ground anymore without losing the ball?

Good game. Should have called that OPI on Brown I thought.
I thought not. Great opening game! I think Dak is going to get hurt again this season. Not moving as well, but played well.

Can't kick it on 3rd down, a fumble the clock won't stop!
I would have kept the time-out.
Back loosened up just in time for a clutch FG!

And the catchable passes bobbled up in the air for INTs!

This ESPN production is borderline unwatchable with all the sound and video glitches.

Driving to the hoop also makes you rely on the ref calling a foul, which didn’t work out for the Baylor women’s team the other night.
I dont think waiting and just firing a 3 is the way to go, which is what most teams do now.
But yeah, just because a team goes for the win doesnt mean its bad. The odds of getting a call driving are slim, but the odds of getting fouled and missing because of the foul rise. A good player probably shoots 55% on shots near the rim, and game on the line that probably drops below 50%. Say they are a 38% 3pt shooter, which drops to around 35% game on line. But, thats still 35% chance at a win versus a ~45% chance at OT, and then multiply that by (in theory a 50/50 shot in the OT) gets you around a 23% chance at the win.
The 3 makes sense, even if those are rough numbers. The problem is the shots the teams take. You have to run an offensive set if you have time, not stall with it. Get the defense moving, and try and hit a shooter in rhythym.

Houston is an offensive rebounding juggernaut late in games. Impressive
7 players with an offensive rebound
Hell of a run by BJ Bob....they just went cold from 3 for, like, the last 30 minutes. They should have won, but ARK rebounded like a wounded dog in H2.

Buckeyes too beaten up from big ten play and thought they had a breather.

After having a slight lead after two rounds, I got one right out of 8 picks in the 3rd round, then got 9 of 11 right yesterday to make up for that. Thanks for the opportunity to play.

50+ yard FG is the first over to be completed.
1st scrimmage play indicated advantage KC due to tackling!

Green Bay kicking a fg was dumb as fuck. And Rodgers could have run it for a TD or at least close. That was a horrible ending for them. Kudos to Tom somehow still killing it.
I agree. Even if they go for it and don't get it, you have TB backed up inside of 10 yard with 3 timeouts and 2 minute warning left.
