Tennessee defender will regret this dumb celebration while down 21 to Alabama

Tennessee linebacker Daniel Bituli got the better of Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts as he picked him off in the red zone and returned the interception for a touchdown. However, it was his teammate that is probably going to get the ire of the Alabama fans as he gave them a “gift” at the end of the play:

So not only was it a classless celebration, but his team was still down 21 points after the PAT. Most people would say “act like you’ve been there”, but the Volunteers have been down this big plenty of times to Alabama. That’s just not a good look for a team that’s now trailing 31-7 heading into the fourth quarter.

One of the baddest dudes in the UFC just got shockingly ended in the very first round of UFC Fight Night 118

If you don’t know who Darren Till is, it might be time to get to know him.

In the main event of UFC Fight Night 118 in Poland, Till TKO’d Donald Cerrone, one of the baddest fighters in the UFC, in the very first round.

The beginning of the end! @DarrenTill2 with the beautiful combination that led to the finish! #UFCGdansk pic.twitter.com/BxGUbNI3W3 — UFC (@ufc) October 21, 2017

Cerrone proceeded to go to ground, give up his back and was belted with bombs until the ref stopped the fight.

Till moves to 16-0-1 and leaves him unbeaten in the UFC thus far.

Cerrone drops to 32-10, and he’s now lost three consecutive fights.

After the fight, Till called out Mike “Platinum” Perry.

YES TO THIS FIGHT. YESSSSS PLEASE TO THIS FIGHT!!!!! #UFCGdansk pic.twitter.com/MhsTr6DkYu — UFC (@ufc) October 21, 2017

Perry is 11-1 in his career, with his last two bouts resulting in a knockout victory.

Tennessee QB got absolutely leveled with a helmet-popping hit to end the half

Unbeaten Alabama is blitzing through Tennessee to the tune of a 21-0 drubbing at the half at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The Volunteers did just about anything they could to get some momentum, which includes trotting out quarterback Jarrett Guarantano on a 3rd-and-19 from the 47 yard-line for an attempted hail mary with two seconds remaining in the half.

That…did not go well.

Guarantano has completed 7 of 11 passes for 38 yards, while the Vols have rushed for 28 yards as a team.

Alabama has combined for over 250 yards of offense already, with the running back duo of Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough scoring all three touchdowns thus far.

This one could get uglier real quick.

Nation’s No. 2 recruit just broke a record held by Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson was a fantastic college football player and, if his first few games as a professional are to be believed, the former Clemson signal-caller will also be a tremendous player at the NFL level. With that in mind, Dabo Swinney and the Tigers will certainly be looking for “the next Deshaun Watson” and the program may have found him in Trevor Lawrence.

Lawrence, who hails from Cartersville High School (Ga.), is committed to play for the Tigers and, in a bizarre twist, the youngster just broke Watson’s Georgia high school football record for passing yards in a career.

247Sports brings word that Lawrence now has 13,077 yards passing in his high school career and, in addition, the talented prospect also sports a ridiculous 47-1 record as a starting quarterback at this level. Of course, it remains to be seen as to whether Lawrence can translate this kind of production to the college ranks, but passing Watson for any record that has to do with playing quarterback is pretty impressive.

The 6-foot-6, 208-pound quarterback may not arrive on Clemson’s campus for a while now, but Trevor Lawrence has all the tools to become a transcendent college player and his production is absolutely off the charts.

We have our first official bowl invitation of the 2017 season

With an exciting 31-28 win over the Temple Owls on Saturday afternoon, the Army Black Knights are officially bowl eligible. Given that the team still has four games remaining on the schedule, it was widely assumed that Jeff Monken and company would reach the coveted six-win mark and, given that virtual assurance, the stage was set for the country’s first bowl bid of the 2017 season.

Army is headed to the Armed Forces Bowl.

We have our first official bowl participant: Army accepts an invite to the Armed Forces Bowl. — Paul Myerberg (@PaulMyerberg) October 21, 2017

The 2017 Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl is scheduled to feature a Conference USA team on one side and it will now be Army on the other. The kick-off is set for Saturday, Dec. 23 at 3:30 pm ET and, given the direct tie-in for the Black Knights, it makes all the sense in the world that they would be included.

Army completed the 2016 season with an overtime win over North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl but the Black Knights needed back-to-back wins to end the campaign with seven regular season wins. That allowed Navy, who lost to Army a season ago, to represent the service academies in the 2016 edition but, this time around, Army is penciled in to the Armed Forces Bowl with the notable headline of being the first team officially headed to a specific bowl destination.

Another WWE legend is now returning to the ring after three performers sidelined with “viral infection”

WWE is really going all out after being forced to make late replacements for this Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view.

WWE already announced that Kurt Angle and A.J. Styles would be filling in for Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt on the show, was Reigns and Wyatt are among the WWE talents dealing with a serious “viral infection” that has forced them out of their matches.

With WWE pulling Styles from the SmackDown Live tour of South America to perform at TLC, the company has been forced to make a reciprocal move to replace Styles on those shows. It looks like WWE will be relying on another legend making his in-ring return, as 14-time world champ Triple H announced that he would be the one filling in for Styles.

My boots are packed and I’m coming for a fight. #WWESantiago, I’m headed your way. Chile, get ready…it’s #GameTime. — Triple H (@TripleH) October 21, 2017

This will mark Triple H’s first return to the ring since his match at WrestleMania 33 against Seth Rollins. Triple H — real name Paul Levesque — has wrestled sparingly over the past few years ever since taking over a legitimate executive role with the company.

It’s currently unclear who Triple H will be wrestling on those non-televised shows, but it really shows that WWE is going above-and-beyond to cater to the fans in a difficult situation.

Wyatt, Reigns, and Bo Dallas — the third wrestler who has been off of shows due to the illness — have no current timetable for a return to the ring.

ACC coach punishes one of his players mid-game with push ups

The Syracuse Orange pulled off an impressive and impactful upset over the No. 2 ranked Clemson Tigers just one week ago and that result came with a lot of praise for head coach Dino Babers. It is easy to see what Babers has already been able to do with the Syracuse program since taking over following a stint at Bowling Green, but if Saturday is any indication, Babers is not exactly resting on his laurels.

The Orange face off against the Miami Hurricanes this week and the team entered as more than a two-touchdown underdog on the field. During the first half, though, Babers was more focused on the actions of one of his offensive lineman and he was captured on camera sending a player to do push-ups in the middle of the game.

The player in question appears to be redshirt junior Keaton Darney and he wasn’t exactly talking back to Babers in the midst of performing the exercise. It is clear that Babers wants discipline from his squad and that seemingly extends to not knowing where a player’s helmet was in the midst of a conference game.

Dino Babers isn’t fooling around and the Syracuse program seems to be better for it.

Jimbo Fisher reportedly gets into it with fan after another embarrassing loss

Florida State took a bad 31-28 loss to Louisville at home and it came on the back of a bad timeout call by coach Jimbo Fisher. That decision along with the loss has some fans pretty upset with the coach and his team and apparently someone went after Fisher and he went right back at them.

Exchange after FSU loss, walking off:Fan: We need new coaches Jimbo!Jimbo Fisher: Bring your a** down here and say it to my face.#FOX35 — Adam Shadoff (@FOX35Adam) October 21, 2017

That’s not a good look for the fan or the coach. The fans have to understand that this year is going to be a struggle with a bad offensive line and a true freshman having to take over for the much better and more experienced Deondre Francois at quarterback.

Fisher’s timeout late in the game gave Louisville’s kicker a second chance to make his 34-yard field and give the Cardinals a 31-28 win instead of going to overtime to give the Seminoles at least a chance to win the game.

Jimbo Fisher could have cost his team the game with boneheaded decision

Florida State was hosting Louisville and hoping to even up its record at 3-3. The Seminoles battled back from 28-14 to even up the game and had a chance to go to overtime. Louisville had to make a 34-yard field goal to win the game and the kicker Brandon Creque actually missed the first kick, but coach Jimbo Fisher bailed him out by calling a timeout.

Creque would make the one that counts and that would end in a 31-28 win to drop FSU to 2-4 and bring the Cards up to 5-3 on the season.

FSU true freshman quarterback James Blackman had a chance to lead his team down the field for the win, but fumbled the ball in field goal range to give Louisville the ball back and their chance at the winning field goal.

Florida State next plays at Boston College on Friday before hosting Syracuse the next week.
