    DENVER--The Broncos organization, including Owner/Head Coach Bingo415, General Manager DescretoBurrito, and Director of College Scouting Jieret announce today that beginning in the 2021 season, Bingo will step down as Head Coach and hand the clipboard to Jieret. We've called this press conference to announce this new direction for the organization following inquiries from several teams about the services of coach Jieret. GM Descreto, whom we believe to be the best in the business, is fully on-board with this decision and we're excited to move forward with Jieret as our Head Man in 2021. There have been some goals and expectations set for Jieret's on-field performance as well as some in the front office. We believe that the Broncos are on the cusp of greatness and he is the man to take us there. All three members of the organization are now available to answer any questions. Go Broncos!

    We are at the Quarter Point in the Season and it's time for Power Rankings. These rankings were made by @Darman, @ImposterCauster, and I. We don't necessarily think this is a ranking of best teams in the conference exactly, but a mixture of on paper talent, game performance, and schedule toughness. Let's get to the Rankings: 1. Not only has Pittsburgh played the toughest schedule, they've beaten everyone so far. This was a no brainer to us. Pitt has played the best out of anyone in the conference to date and they deserve the #1 spot. Grant McConnell is tearing up the competition and looks like a Heisman Candidate early in the season. 2. Clemson gets our #2 spot based on their schedule and talent. Even though they stumbled a little last week, they preserved a win. Their only loss is on the road at Auburn. They are the best team in the Atlantic right now and are favorites to make it back to the ACC Championship Game. 3. Darman has brought this team to life and they are showing it on the field so far this season. Duke has played very well and consistently, and has slain a giant in the conference with their win over FSU last week. Duke is on a roll and should get their first Bowl Game in school history this season. 4. UVA has played well, but against inferior competition. The difference between Duke's schedule and UVA's schedule was our main reason for putting Duke 3 and UVA 4. 5. The first ACC teams to 2 Conference Wins! And the only team without a coach. Syracuse has done well, earning victories of FSU and NCSU. 6. Our last team over .500, Louisville has won more games than they lost. There weren't high expectations for this team, but they seem to be beating those expectations early on. 7. Yes, even with their two game losing streak, we put FSU over Virginia Tech and North Carolina. We felt their on paper talent was justification enough to put them over the Hokies and Heels. FSU will rebound and will get back to a Bowl Game this year. 8. The Hokies lack a certain amount of talent, but they have won 50% of their games so far. Tough losses to Pitt and Oklahoma State and a win over North Carolina gets them to #8. 9. The Heels have surprised many with their play so far. Max Laws has improved mightily and looks like he could be an asset to this team finally. 10. The Jackets have played at Alabama and at Clemson. They fought Alabama tooth and nail, losing by 9 points. They didn't put up a fight against Clemson. They did beat Georgia State, which is an OK win. The Jackets could make moves in the Coastal this year, watch out for them. 11. The Demon Deacons have a win! Which is more than I thought they would have at season's end. They're still not very good however and that one win will most likely be their only win. 12. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Boston College is 0-4, although they've played some good teams and played them hard. They just can't make the plays at the end of the game to finish it off. BC is in serious trouble of not going Bowling. 13. Last year's surprise team in the ACC have come back down to earth. At 0-4, the Wolfpack are feeling a bit uneasy. Not making a Bowl Game this year will hurt, what they should focus on now is dominating recruiting. 14. They might be the worst Power 5 team in the country right now. A couple years of instability at the coaching position has left this team cratered for talent. They can't seem to avoid getting blown out. Fortunately for Canes fans, they are cleaning house in recruiting right now. Please let us know in the comments what changes you would make.

    Nicholas Garland fends off a UCLA defensive end in the Cardinal victory on Saturday Some movement and some separation in the Power Rankings this week. The PAC-12 currently has three ranked teams, two from the North plus USC. Arizona's stumble at previously winless Oregon was the big shocker of the weekend. Where's your team at? Read along... Remember, if you don't like where you're at in these rankings...play AND recruit better! 1. Washington State Cougars (3-0) Coach Ape's men are looking really dangerous and have had a couple weeks off early in the season to remain healthy entering PAC-12 play. They need a running game, slightly, but David Oates is a stud and should carry this team to the North title. Get ready for those boys from Eugene, however... 2. Stanford Cardinal (4-0) The Trees cleared a solid hurdle in honey potting the Bruins, despite the killer game from Gore. Nick Garland and his cronies continue to look like the other threat in the North, but I'm beginning to get the sense this team is a one trick pony like their rivals in Pullman. 3. USC Trojans (3-1) A workmanlike 27-17 victory over the Sun Devils puts the Trojans back into good graces. They'll need much more out of Jesus Cordero if they want to utilize all the talents available to them, but Luke Trickett is, and was, plenty for this offense. 4. California Golden Bears (4-0) Cal stays at #4 because they barely squeaked by USM. USM. That's Southern Miss, not Southern Methodist. For a team I'd ranked in the national poll starting in week 3, I was vastly unimpressed with that effort, at home no less. 5. Arizona Wildcats (3-1) Whoops! Perhaps the Wildcats were too overconfident entering Eugene...perhaps they need to trust the passing game a bit more. Either way, losing to the previously winless Ducks was not a good look, especially after the stellar opening trio of games. They'll be fine, and I think the main challengers to SC in the South. 6. Arizona State Sun Devils (2-2) They're at #6 because they played SC tough at home and didn't look terrible in their other loss. Arizona State has a sneaky decent squad and some solid coaching with NDunk. They're gonna be a tough out for any contending team in this league. 7. UCLA Briuns (2-2) Steven Gore is for real and certainly gave it his all versus Stanford, but the Bruins didn't have what it takes on Saturday. The Cardinal slid by. Can UCLA regroup? They've looked equal parts astute and lost in the first quarter of the season, so we're not entirely sure. 8. Colorado Buffaloes (2-2) A little gift here after the annihilation of the Blue Raiders. Latavious Murray got back to his normal awesome self with 145 big yards. Now the cupcakes are done, and Colorado has to rise to the PAC-12 level consistency. Their only two losses have been blowouts to SC and 'Zona. 9. Oregon Ducks (1-3) Ayy! How about that!! Holding down the fort against the Wildcats in Autzen, on a scheme change, is pretty big for the confidence of this team. It doesn't get any easier, however: Pullman can be nasty. And the Cougs ARE nasty. 10. Oregon State Beavers (1-3) Well, it was nice while it lasted, being the only team from the state of Oregon with a win. And they played SMU tough, finally succumbing 38-17. Oregon State has talent, has some guys in recruiting that will eventually help, but this team is still a long way from a bowl game. 11. Utah Utes (0-3) I honestly have no idea what's going on with Utah. The talent is there...where's any semblance of coaching acumen? This team is staring boldly at 0-12, unless they get lucky in conference play. 12. Washington Huskies (0-4) My favorite part of the power rankings is seeing Washington on the bottom. Not because I don't Dean^2, because I don't like the Huskies Valiant effort in week 5 (a narrow 3 pt loss) but it doesn't get easier for these Puppies.

    There's a lot of good matchups this week in the nation's most exciting conference. I say that every week, but this time it's actually full of games that might as well be coin tosses. Baylor and Iowa State kick things off, and both teams are looking to snap a sudden cold spell. West Virginia-Texas is next, and that series is chock-full of West Virginia winning games they weren't supposed to win. Kansas-TCU comes on at the same time, and both teams have shown more mixed signals than a traffic light going haywire. And closing the slate will be Oklahoma State-Texas Tech, a battle between two undefeated teams that have almost nothing else in common. We're going to learn a lot from this week, and every game matters just that much more since we're all locked into conference play. So let's talk about the games. Thursday Night Baylor (1-2) at Iowa State (1-3)* What happens when a stopped force meets a movable object? On Thursday night, we may be about to find out. Iowa State's offense and Baylor's defense have not had the best of starts this year. The Cyclones are averaging 14.25 points per game, they've scored 7 points in the last two games combined, and they've gone back-and-forth at the quarterback position with August Blank back at the top of the depth chart after a one-game benching. On the other side, Baylor has given up a Big XII-high 40.67 points per game. They're giving up 327.67 yards per game through the air, and that's come with 11 passing touchdowns allowed in 3 games. Both units desperately need a get-right game, and what better time to do that against each other? This is probably a matchup that favors the Bears. Baylor can get pressure into the backfield, and Iowa State's offensive line hasn't been able to repel pressure all that well. Kyle Cunningham can limit Elliott Efi, but Baylor does have to worry about Sincere Spikes. Spikes may be the team's #2 receiver on the depth chart, but he's the team's leading receiver and Baylor has struggled against opposing flankers. Unless August Blank comes out of this bench week as a seriously different quarterback, though, that won't matter. He completed fewer than 55% of his passes in non-conference play, throwing 4 touchdowns to 6 interceptions and racking up a 101.5 passer rating. Advantage: Baylor. On offense, Baylor's had absolutely no trouble this year. They've been averaging 39.67 points per game, and Marcus Swartz has been a huge part of the reason. The senior quarterback's thrown for 7 touchdowns and rushed for 4 more, stayed efficient with a 69.2% completion rate, nearly 8.9 yards per pass attempt, and nearly 7.0 yards per carry, and he's found Lamont Wilder (296 yards, 3 TD) and Hastin Rider (259 yards, 3 TD) a lot. Iowa State's defense hasn't been bad by any means, but it's a fairly young unit and it's been up-and-down. They gave up 31 to Nebraska, then held New Mexico to 10 and Minnesota to 14, then gave up 41 to Kansas. They haven't faced a quarterback as good or as versatile as Marcus Swartz yet, and if he gets hot then this one's going to be over early. Give me Baylor on the road here. Baylor 34, Iowa State 16 Saturday Afternoon West Virginia (1-2) at #21 Texas (3-0)* The Big XII's winningest program naturally doesn't do a whole lot of losing. In their 100th game in program history, though, Texas faces the one program that seems to have its number more than anyone else. West Virginia is the only Big XII program with a winning record against the Longhorns, having broken the tie with a 27-22 win in Austin last season. All five games in this series have been one-possession affairs, and this one's shaping up to be a good one too. Mohammed Foster and Kyler Tackett have been two of the most terrifying quarterbacks in the Big XII this season to date. Tackett has been precise, completing more than 70% of his passes in all three games he's played so far and 71.1% overall. He's thrown 5 touchdowns to 1 interception, rushed for another score, and added a whole new threat to an offense that last year relied almost exclusively on Simeon Wells. But Mohammed Foster has been on another level. The junior leads the Big XII in a slew of categories: his 73.3% completion percentage, his 10.1 yards per attempt, his 13.8 yards per completion, and his 171.4 passer rating are among them. His 290.3 passing yards per game rank 2nd. He's thrown for 4 touchdowns to 1 interception, rushing for an extra two scores on the ground on 7.7 yards per carry. He is a host unto himself, and that's before you take into account game-changing receiver J.C. Weldon. Texas matches up well with this West Virginia offense, however. They have a strong defensive front that can directly pressure Foster while keeping him contained. The secondary's been on fire this season, leading the Big XII (by a lot) with a 101.6 opponent's passer rating. They've allowed 2 touchdowns and intercepted 6 passes. Damani Jeffries and Devon Braxton can at least hang with J.C. Weldon and Elias Langston. Point being: West Virginia's offense is good, but Texas can limit them. Can the same be said for West Virginia's defense against Texas's offense? They've shown some nice week-to-week improvement. After giving up 44 to Pittsburgh, they held Penn State to a respectable (but certainly not ideal) 28. Then, they shut down Arkansas's pass-heavy attack and held the Razorbacks to 16 points. Overall, the West Virginia defense ranks in the middle of the road in most of the efficiency stats despite the offenses they've faced. And in some respects, they have to like their matchup with Texas. Star defensive tackle Hudson Adam (3.0 sacks) matches up against a weak interior offensive line, and Nathan Wilks has been able to chase down ballcarriers all the way to the pearly gates. West Virginia's secondary is thin, but so is Texas's receiver corps. They don't have a real answer for Steven Maloney, but West Virginia's defense doesn't hate this matchup. It's almost enough to make me take the Mountaineers here, but I think Texas has just a little bit more in the tank. Give me the Longhorns to even the series up. #21 Texas 27, West Virginia 24 Kansas (2-2) at TCU (2-2)* The second half of the Saturday afternoon double-header is one of the more prominent non-rivalry rivalries in the Big XII. TCU and Kansas have met five times, including the 2018 Big XII Championship Game. All five times have resulted in Jayhawk victories, including all three meetings in Fort Worth. Now that Eric Jennings and Nathan Burden, the Big XII's #1 and #2 career passers, have both graduated, is this TCU's next best chance to get on the board? A lot is going to ride on the two teams' new quarterbacks, both of whom have been up-and-down so far as redshirt freshmen. Christian Graham currently leads the Big XII in passing yardage (though he only ranks 4th in yards per game), completing a healthy 65% of his passes and throwing for exactly 2 touchdowns in each of his four games. On the downside, he's also thrown 6 picks, and memories of his 20-38, two-touchdown, three-interception effort against Notre Dame two games ago are still fresh on everyone's minds. He's facing more pressure than he'd like behind a Jayhawk line that hasn't performed as well this year as it did last year. He's relied on three main targets this year: Malcolm Davis (285 yards and 4 TD), Chris Burgos (242 and 1 TD), and tight end Noah Hills (293 and 3 TD). TCU's defense has faced an onslaught of passing so far this season, and they've held up reasonably well with a 131.6 passer rating allowed and 5 interceptions against 8 touchdowns. Their secondary is extremely talented, though guys like Jamel Armstrong, Andre Webb, and Eric McLean are going to put up big numbers on anybody. Show any vulnerability, and TCU won't show any mercy--as Rahim Murrell found out the hard way last week. Beating TCU has usually meant going to the air this season: they're only giving up 3.6 yards per carry, though nobody's tried to challenge their young defensive front as often as 20 times in a game so far. We'll see how often Kansas goes to Christian Graham and how often they try out junior speedster Rod Fulton (who's averaging 4.75 yards per carry). Meanwhile, TCU's offense looks a lot different in year 1 post-Burden. Sam Milner is a true dual-threat, and TCU's been unafraid to run almost exactly as often as they throw. Shamar Burroughs still has a nose for the goal line, scoring a touchdown in all four games so far despite his 4.47 YPC average. Milner's still getting his legs under him, but he rushed for his first score against Kansas State. More importantly, he also put together his best game through the air: 19-25 for 240 yards, 2 touchdowns, and no interceptions. That was much-needed after a fairly slow start to the season, and his full stats (60.7% completion percentage, 181.0 yards per game, 7 TD, 4 INT, 131.7 passer rating) still leave something to be desired. But if that Kansas State game is a turning point for him, then watch out Jayhawks. The Milner-Burroughs offense is very similar to the Sorensen-Keil two-headed attack that Notre Dame bludgeoned Kansas with to the tune of 40 points. I think Kansas still won't have an answer to that. My prediction: this is the year TCU gets on the board. TCU 20, Kansas 17 Saturday Evening Oklahoma State (3-0) at Texas Tech (4-0)* The fourth and final game this week is a big one. Two of the three remaining Big XII undefeateds (and two of the top three in the power rankings) square off in the first obviously pivotal battle for the conference crown. And, almost even better, this game is going to be a showcase of the diversity of styles in the nation's most exciting conference. Oklahoma State's scoring over 43 points per game and Texas Tech's allowing just 11.5, but it's how they get there that's even more interesting. Nobody is throwing the ball as much as Oklahoma State. Chester Brenner launches 36.7 passes per game from that rocket he calls a right arm, and he's been as good as anyone in the process. He averages a conference-best 305 yards and 4 touchdowns per game (against 1 pick per game), completes 68.2% of his passes, and maintains a 168.6 passer rating despite the fact that his opponents know he's going to throw the ball a ton. With a capable trio of split end Xavier Gant (247 yards, 4 TD), flanker Jay Dunn (conference-best 316 yards, 4 TD), and slot receiver Jeremy Bridges (192 yards, 2 TD) all providing deadly downfield options, covering this team is easier said than done. You have to have a deep and talented set of corners, you have to be able to get pressure and force Brenner to get the ball out, and you have to have great safeties to ensure that nothing gets over the top. Texas Tech puts a huge emphasis on that last part: Cameron Riley is one of the best strong safeties in the country, and Jamir Pendleton holds his own on the free side as well. They don't see a huge drop-off at cornerback from Jeffrey Colbert to Kameron Dozier to nickelback Chad Solomon, though none are really star players. They lead the Big XII with 11 sacks, including 6 in their 52-3 opener against North Carolina. The Texas Tech defense allows a high completion percentage (64.55%), but they don't let anything over their heads (10.93 yards allowed per completion). They've only intercepted 2 passes, but they've also only allowed 2 touchdowns. Their run defense is significantly less effective, but Oklahoma State can't and won't run the ball on a consistent basis other than to punch it in from short range. Oklahoma State will be throwing into the belly of the beast. On the flipside, Texas Tech runs the ball with authority and is content with the motto of "5 yards and a cloud of dust." True freshman Solomon McLaughlin has thus far lived up to the hype, leading the Big XII with 538 rushing yards (134.5 per game) and 7 touchdowns. He's averaging nearly 4.9 yards per carry despite the fact that everybody knows he's going to get the ball more often than not. Oklahoma State passes on nearly 69% of their offensive snaps; Texas Tech runs on nearly 69% of their offensive snaps. When McLaughlin doesn't get the rock, it's usually in the hands of Chase Shapiro--who, in turn, is also capable of running the ball. Shapiro's only picked up 51 yards on the ground so far, but 2 of his 12 carries have gone for scores. In the meantime, he's improved significantly as a passer. He's only thrown it 55 times, but he's completing 63.6% of his passes and has thrown for 3 scores without an interception. He throws just 13.8 passes per game, though, so expect Oklahoma State to attack the run all-out. The Cowboys don't have a strong defensive line, but it's good enough to hold the door while linebackers Trevor Orlando, Zach Morrison, Adrian Connor, and even Jamel Ingram all pursue the ballcarrier. Orlando's the player to watch on this defense: he's been a stud ever since he stepped onto the field as a true freshman. The Cowboys have been tested against the run, and the results have been good on balance. They allow just under 3.9 yards per carry, though Virginia Tech averaged 4.5 yards per carry against them over the course of 28 carries. Texas Tech's offensive line should be able to find at least some purchase against Oklahoma State's defensive line, and that'll give McLaughlin and Shapiro some room to work. The Red Raiders have played with fire their last couple of games, needing overtime to beat Oklahoma and needing a rally to beat Washington--but so has Oklahoma State, who survived close challenges against Western Kentucky and Virginia Tech. Texas Tech is at home, their style of play is good at winning close games, and I think they match up better against Oklahoma State than the other way around. I'm taking the Red Raiders. Texas Tech 23, Oklahoma State 20 Byes: Kansas State (3-1), Oklahoma (0-4)

    Week 5: The Rainforest Cafe Award for Football and Jungle Valor. We’re whispering because Air Force was asleep during his bye this week, allowing us to sneak in some different guys to win the POTW awards. If we stay quiet he might not wake up to play his game for week 6 either- OH HEY GOOD MORNING BUDDY GREAT TO SEE YOU, NICO KAUFMAN SURE IS IMPRESSIVE! This week we saw the MWC go 1-3 in out of conference games, with Hawaii picking up the lone win against FAU Schwarz and UNLV giving Clemson a big ol’ spook. In conference, Fresno State put a hurting on Wyoming, Colorado State stayed undefeated against San Jose State, and Boise State continues to right the ship after its win against New Mexico. Also a huge thanks to Numberonecoog for taking over Player of the Week Duties for Week 4. But if you try to steal my job again you’ll be put on the RFC Blacklist. You’ve been warned. Without further delay, let’s dig into our dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets and name some Week 5 Players of the Week for the Mountain West Conference: Offensive Player of the Week Noel Minor being all like "Get outta my Rainforest Cafe, Air Force, other people are allowed here" Noel Minor, the senior running back for UNLV, ran all over Clemson this week, putting up 143 yard on 29 attempts and racking up an impressive 3 touchdowns. Minor is also the first non-quarterback to win the MWC Offensive Player of the Week award this season. Minor’s performance was crucial in UNLV near-upset of Clemson, and has helped put the team on the map of teams to keep an eye on. Offensive Player of the Week Justin Ivy-Sewell returning an interception while lost in thought about all of the healthy salad options at his local jungle themed restaurant Boise State senior free safety Justin Ivy-Sewell shut down the New Mexico offense, recording 5 tackles and taking away a key interception. Ivy-Sewell currently has the most interceptions and second most tackles of any free safety in the Mountain West, contributing a lot to Boise State’s recent success on the field. Justin is highly deserving of the award this week and will likely bring the Broncos more success throughout the season. There you have it folks. No coupon phrases anymore- excessive use and accusations of harassment got our Arizona location shut down. Although to be honest we forgot we even still had one open in that desert wasteland. Week 6 features 1 out of conference game with UNLV taking on its second ranked ACC team in a row at Duke. Some big in-conference games are the undefeateds Hawaii and Colorado State meeting, and the now-hot Boise State hoping to put an end to Air Force’s dominant start of the season. Also San Jose State and Nevada are playing football against each other. NOT A SINGLE DAMN PLACE

    Good questions all. As you can probably see from my time with Western Michigan, I prefer an offense predicated on strong line play and running game, and a flexible defense that limits what the opponent can do. However I have to be flexible also; if the personnel don't match the scheme then we change the scheme. I've talked to Jonah and the other players, and there shouldn't be any issues from that end. The guys know what I'm about and what my philosophies are from my very first day here, so we've had time to adjust to each other.

    Marcus Swartz has passed Robert Price for 7th on the Big XII passing touchdowns list with his 58th. He's also 7th with 8603 passing yards. Next on both lists is Graham Burnett (9066 yards, 62 pass TD). Swartz is also the Big XII's all-time leader in rushing yards by a quarterback with 1458 yards and 22 TD, giving him 10,061 combined yards and 80 combined touchdowns. He ranks third among Big XII quarterbacks in both of those categories (the records are 11,709 yards and 91 TD, both held by Eric Jennings and both accumulated solely by passing).

    This was an exciting week for the MWC as Conference play really took off. Week 5 has set Week 6 up to be one of the most crucial weeks in the MWC Season. -Air Force was on bye and plays Boise State this week. This is a big week for both teams. A win by the Broncos would throw the entire Mountain Division up for grabs, while a win by the Falcons would push them even further ahead in the division. -As big as Air Force vs. Boise State is, Colorado State vs. Hawaii may be even bigger. Both teams have their sights set on big goals for this season and a win here for either squad would be a fantastic stepping stone to bigger and better things. -San Diego State was blown out at the hands of Western Michigan and is in need of some serious adjustments. -New Mexico had a rough loss to Boise State, but at 2-2 could still feasibly make a bowl. They'll need to take advantage of some of the weaker teams in the conference to get there. - UNLV nearly pulled off the upset of the season against Clemson, but couldn't quite finish the job. Pollvoters were impressed by the effort and moved them up 3 spots, however. - At 0-4, things are getting desperate for the Wyoming Cowboys. They showed signs of life this week against Fresno State, but they remain without a win. With the (hopeful) return of coach GK, perhaps things will start turning around for the Cowboys. -San Jose State and Nevada are playing football against each other 1. Air Force Falcons 3-0 --- 2.

    Cheerleader-in-Chief. The point of surrounding yourself with talented people is to give them the room to make their own decisions. I'll obviously be a sounding board for both of my front office mates. I couldn't be happier to have Descreto and Jieret running the Broncos with me.

    Thank you everyone. It's an honor to continue working with the Denver Broncos. When Bingo first approached me about joining he and Descreto, I saw it as an excellent opportunity to learn the workings of the NFL within a top-notch organization. While I'm very honored that other teams saw enough potential to offer me a position, Denver is a place I couldn't be happier to remain with and I'm grateful I get the chance to continue the work Bingo and Descreto have started. Absolutely. Todd has done an excellent job for us, and I have full confidence in his abilities. While our quarterbacks are both on the younger side, we have an exciting team surrounding them that plays well to their strengths and I look forward to nurturing their skills over the coming years.

    Week 5 saw every single SEC team in action! Lets see who was the cream of the crop! Offensive Player of the Week QB Tucker Dowden, Missouri 24 of 42 for 305 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 6 carries for 51 yards, 2 TD vs #2 Auburn The Tigers may have lost the game, but Dowden put together a show for the ages. The talented junior signal caller was an unstoppable force Saturday evening as he accounted for 4 touchdowns while scrambling and passing all over the Auburn defense. He's currently a strong contender for SEC Offensive Player of the Year, and even the Heisman committee has their eyes on Dowden. Will he be the second Mizzou QB in history to win the most prestigious award in college football? Guess we'll find out! Defensive Player of the Week CB Miles Gray, Tennessee 1 INT, 3 Tackles, 1 TD vs Memphis One of the top defensive backs in the SEC does it again with a great outing against instate rivals Memphis. Gray was back to his ball-hawking best, even returning one to the end zone for 6. The senior corner is one of the best in the nation, and he proved it once again Saturday evening. Special Teams Player of the Week P Benjamin Biggs , Georgia 45.3 Punt Avg vs UMass All systems were a go as the Bulldogs dismantled the Minutemen Saturday morning, but a big piece of that was Biggs and his impeccable punting. Most notable was a third quarter boomer that rolled out at the 2 yard line, netting 58 yards. For that alone, we're giving him the honor of being the first punter selected this season to this tremendous award! SEC POTW Award History

    Coach Jieret, lately the face of the Broncos has been linebacker Cameron Jonah. How do you think your transition to head coach will affect your star player?

    Wouldn't it be great if championships and media points were given based off Week 5 Coaches' Polls? Maybe y'all P5 conferences wouldn't be bottom feeders in those categories.
