Even though Washington Huskies won the Pac-12 championship, the team knows very well that the College Football playoff game against Alabama won't be easy, considering they are on top of the points table. Liufau refused to blame the mistakes on his ankle, saying instead that "I really missed up, to say the least". The Huskies won their conference - a Power 5 conference at that - and looked pretty good doing it, especially in the second half.

  • Argentina rugby ready for 'calculated risks' against England

    Sport

    Argentina did, admittedly, end up bottom of the Rugby Championship and lost to Australia at Twickenham just a few short weeks ago but if ever there was a team with the attacking capacity to spring a spectacular surprise it is Los Pumas . It makes next week's game so exciting. Defeat at Twickenham, however, could lead to the type of brutal World Cup pool which resulted in England's demise last autumn, prompting Jones to warn his England team they will face opponents who are "full of beans".

    Lewis Hamilton should beat Nico Rosberg's replacement at Mercedes, claims grid rival

    Sport

    Following the shock retirement announcement by recently-crowned F1 World Champion Nico Rosberg, the advert states: "A vacancy has arisen for the position of race driver with the team". Lowe insists Pascal Wehrlein is in contention for the drive but it is not guaranteed that the protégé of Mercedes-Benz will replace Rosberg in 2017, as the team seek a driver who can bring in the points much like the outgoing champion has.

    Deshaun Watson's mission is not over. Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson , named most valuable player, completed 23 of 34 passes for three touchdowns and 288 yards. We hit on a couple runs, and we felt like if we could ever get a little drive going. "He's hard on himself so I know he'll think about this in pro ball, but just to keep his head up".

    A poor iron shot at 16 found sandy weeds and he found water off the 18th tee then hit the flagstick on his par chip. But Davis managed to recover, come back and win a year ago which inspired Tiger Woods not to give up. At the 14th there was a classic Woods moment. "You can drive a couple of par fours, all the par fives are reachable and the you're going to have probably four or five pitching wedges on down into the par fours".

    Leaving, he said, is "bittersweet". "He does have the ability to contribute at some point next year, and the good ones sort of have a way of forcing that time frame on to you, but we're in no rush to get anybody to Chicago just to show them, 'Hey, look at what we got, it worked.' It's more about when they are personally ready to force the issue and have success at the big league level and continue to develop".

    The Badgers, as they have all season, didn't pull out any fancy tricks to build their early lead. "We don't look at just this year", Franklin said. "I would describe it as our guys would obviously have loved to have been in the playoffs, but they are also excited about the opportunity to play in a big bowl game and continue our season".
  • EPL: Sanchez grabs hat-trick as Arsenal thrash West Ham

    Sport

    The Chile worldwide has now been involved in six of Arsenal's last eight league goals , scoring five, and he earned high praise from manager Arsene Wenger whose decision to play him as an orthodox striker is paying off handsomely. And West Ham had less confidence than previous year. We miss only 20 per cent of our chances this year, last year we missed over 100. We are Arsenal football club and if people don't expect us to be there or thereabouts, I think it's a bit disrespectful.

    The same implications apply for the Oklahoma Sooners (9-2, 8-0) and the Oklahoma State Cowboys (9-2, 7-1) in Norman on Saturday. Mixon's 79-yard touchdown run with just less than 10 minutes remaining put the game away just after the Cowboys missed a field goal as the No.
