The Saint Leo Women’s Basketball team has been on a bit of a roller coaster ride this season.

Unfortunately, those sparks of hope were not initially ignited into flame but rather extinguished quickly as the team lost six of their first seven games, many with a deficit of 20 points or more. Yet, the Lions soon found a rhythm after…

Of the past nine college football championships, the Alabama Crimson Tide have competed in six of them. Following Monday’s victory over the Georgia Bulldogs, they have now won five of those six. In a nation of 129 Division I varsity football teams, it seems an incredible feat that one of those teams can be the best in the country six out of the past nine years. For Alabama coach Nick Saban, however, it’s all just run of the mill for him and his team. After Saban’s Crimson Tide went scoreless in the first half of the national championship game, he…

The Rose Bowl featured the University of Georgia defeating the University of Oklahoma, which ended up being the highest scoring matchup in that game’s history. Unfortunately for fans of the sport, the Sugar Bowl was played later on in the…

Latavius Murray, RB Minnesota Vikings: Coming off of a tough loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 14, the Minnesota Vikings will look to get back to their winning ways this weekend. The offense had a tough time moving the ball for much of last week’s game but should be much more efficient against the Bengals this weekend.

There has been a split in snaps between Murray and fellow running back Jerick McKinnon,…
