Madrid looked set to romp to another big win after Gareth Bale netted an unbelievable opener from distance in the first minute before then setting up Benzema to make it 2-0. Madrid have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine games and Zidane admits their defensive sloppiness is a minor concern. Clashes between Legia supporters and security forces during the club's opening group stage game against Borussia Dortmund back in September led to the next outing being played behind ...

A possible solution for the Buckeyes and the selection committee: If Oklahoma wins the Big 12 and Wisconsin wins the Big Ten, the Buckeyes would have a victory over both. Auburn , 16. Florida State (No. 17) and Nebraska (No. 18) each moved up one spot, taking advantage ofNorth Carolina's loss to rivalDuke. Michigan's loss to Iowa created a potential predicament for the selection committee with the Buckeyes.
After Ty Cummings' 33-yard field goal made it 10-0 with 49 seconds left in the first quarter, the Cougars added three second quarter touchdowns to basically decide the game.

Watson must defeat improved Wake Forest and SC teams in order to carry Clemson back to the playoff this season.
Coach Zinedine Zidane picked the France striker for the Spanish league match at Vicente Calderon Stadium, but he didn't reveal if he will start Benzema or place him in the reserves.

"I would say every spot is under pressure", said Lehmann, who is aware that the last time Australia lost four in a row, then coach Mickey Arthur got the chop.
A team that is normally sure handed with the football has been anything but recently. The Saints beat the Panthers 41-38 on October 16 in the Superdome. It's something we can't do and (still) win. Through bad defensive draft selections, horrendous signings and the multiple firings of defensive coordinators as easy scapegoats, the Saints have had a perennially mediocre-to-putrid defense, while the offense has always been top 5-10.
The Kansas City Chiefs look to build on their five-game winning streak and remain first in the AFC West. All five of Ward's games played came in the team's past six, as he helped fill while a couple of Tampa Bay's defensive lineman were down with injuries.
An upset of the Buckeyes would seem a monumental task for the Spartans, who are more than three-touchdown underdogs.

It only got worse from there, as the Cardinals trailed 31-0 at halftime on the way to a 36-10 drubbing.

Michigan State has fallen fast since last season's Big Ten title.
These quarterbacks famously rose from the ashes of their older predecessors and become Hall of Fame caliber players. Maybe he will push this offense a step forward. "I want to play", Keenum said. That's the way I viewed it. Interestingly, journeyman quarterback Brandon Weeden told Kaplan that he thinks it's smart to not throw rookie quarterbacks into National Football League games too quickly, because many of them come from college offenses that are dissimilar to the NFL.
Ryan Thomas , who calls himself a "stay at home dog dad" on Twitter , recorded video of his Boxer performing a number of tasks while standing stone-still as Rae Sremmurd's Black Beatles plays in the background.

Klinsmann accepted some of the blame for the setback but also indicated he was dissatisfied with the level of fighting spirit shown by his players, as they followed up last Friday's home defeat to Mexico with a far worse performance. The Americans will likely advance to the 2018 World Cup even after this poor start. Yesterday's drubbing is certain to renew speculation about Klinsmann's position.
Sessions is one of the earliest Republican lawmakers to support Trump's White House candidacy. An Army intelligence veteran of three decades, Flynn was assistant director of national intelligence under Obama. He said he will make an "extraordinary" attorney general. "President-elect Trump himself has recognized this as sound policy, saying that, 'in terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state.' His position is echoed by an overwhelming majority ...
Roethlisberger said he never called out specific players or coaches over a lack of discipline on the team. "It punches you in the heart because he's the heart of our defense". And that was with Heyward in the huddle. Davis wanted Winslow because he thought he was a difference maker and believed that, in signing Jeff Garcia , they had properly addressed the quarterback position.
Atletico's coach, though, has other priorities. Despite his ties to Atletico , Perea feels that the midfielder deserves to be treated better at Los Blancos , and use him as they did under Carlo Ancelotti. This is the kind of games that everyone wants to play and it's going to be a great night at the Calderon, "Gameiro said on the Atlético de Madrid website".
Alabama will continue to be the number one overall seed into the final College Football Playoff game. Wisconsin was seventh and Penn State eighth, giving the Big Ten four teams in the top 10.

The visitors still trail by 352 runs . Paul Farbrace urged England to show more "resilience and fight" after the tourists folded to 80-5 on day two of the second Test against India . Root cleared his mind to complete a 91-ball 50, but by then had also lost Ben Duckett, bowled by Ravi Ashwin. " Honestly one day I would like to walk into a press conference and stop answering questions on the pitch because that s as good as an Indian pitch one can get", said a visibly flustered Ashwin.
Hall would have his moments but it was Whittaker that mostly controlled the action, winning a clear decision and slightly damaging Hall's contender status. "You win fights, you go places". And tomorrow he gets his chance to enhance his burgeoning reputation when he takes on South Korean Kwan Ho Kwak, who, like Johns, also boasts an unbeaten record.
Every team in the National Football League is flawed right now, except perhaps one: The Seattle Seahawks. It's a team that's built for success, and no one wants to face them from here on out.
