The outcome leaves both Chelsea and Liverpool with 10 points each, but the Blues are ahead of the Reds in the Premier League table by virtue of goal difference.

How big of a deal is it really to the team and the fans? I see them moving the ball early on with tempo, only to find their drives stall in Ohio State territory, and for them to settle for field goals. Last week Dano Opacich and I had Ohio State winning by 46 points and it was a 45 point win. Tough line of scrimmage game... The former Texas Tech transfer exceeded expectations at Oklahoma, where he's now undefeated in seven career home starts in Norman.
Then there's the Heisman race. "I usually block out the crowd, but I heard the crowd in this instance, yelling 'Block that kick!' I don't know why I did it, kind of a spontaneous reaction, but I raised my arms and I led the chant". Can the Buckeyes exploit this one-on-one battle just like Houston? Is it Saturday night yet? Mayfield definitely has the explosiveness to keep Ohio State on their toes, but if they can't get the running game going, this will be a repeat of the game against Houston.

That's one aspect Rodgers has that the Vikings do not have in either Shaun Hill or Sam Bradford. The one-two punch that awaits the Packers on Sunday night in Minneapolis is unlike anything they will face all season.

Nineteen under par is the low 72-hole score for a women's major and Chun also has a great chance of bettering the 20-under-par major record set by Jason Day at last year's PGA Championship and then matched by Henrik Stenson at this summer's Open Championship.
Bradford did not play Sunday at Nashville.
