Official Site of the Warhawks: Speed Never Slumps; Warhawks Prepare for Final Fall Scrimmage
MONROE, La. - The ULM softball team is preparing for its final fall scrimmage on Thursday, October 16th, when they host Kilgore College. First pitch of the double-header is slated for 2:30 p.m. at the ULM softball complex.

Fichtner and the 2018-19 squad have already played three double-headers this fall, defeating Bossier Parish Community College, Vernon College, and most recently Northeast Texas Community College.
"We have been focusing a lot of our practice time on the defense, perfecting our fielding and defending skills," Fichtner said.

Fansided: Tennessee football: New possible outcomes for Vols season after Auburn win
Coming off a 4-8 season, Tennessee football entered 2018 with only three circled victories: the ETSU Bucs, UTEP Miners and Charlotte 49ers. They also had four toss-up games in the Florida Gators, Kentucky Wildcats, Missouri Tigers and Vanderbilt Commodores. Then there were two likely losses in the West Virginia Mountaineers and South Carolina Gamecocks.
The absolute best-case scenario for the Vols on the season was to finish 9-3, and that was with two major upsets. When they dropped a likely loss on the year and a toss-up game, that best-case scenario reset to 7-5.
Heading into a bye with a 2-3 record thanks to losses to West Virginia, Florida, and the Georgia Bulldogs, this team was in trouble.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Mizzou's Emanuel Hall out this week, expected back soon
COLUMBIA, MO. * Missouri will play one more game without wide receiver Emanuel Hall, but Tigers coach Barry Odom expects him back sooner than later. Hall, who's been recovering from a groin injury for nearly a month, has spent the last several days with family in Tennessee after the death of his father last Thursday.
Hall, a senior, has played in only four games this year, which means under the NCAA's new redshirt rule he could preserve the year of eligibility should he choose to not return this season. But that's not in the wideout's plans.

The Times-Picayune: LSU went up-tempo on offense to beat Georgia, and it opened everything up
Nick Brossette cut upfield for the eight-yard gain to set up third-and-two, and LSU jumped back to the line for the quick snap.
Georgia defensive tackle Michael Barnett was on the ground when the play ended, but then Georgia tried to make a substitution. The tired 304-pound lineman had to sprint off the field while Joe Burrow and the LSU offense were already prepared for the play.
LSU snapped the ball with 30 seconds on the play clock, and in that moment the Tigers set up everything they wanted out of their up-tempo offense.
Barnett wasn't able to get off the field in time.

UGA Wire: UGA Football Injury Update: Key Defender Back At Practice, Others Still Out
The Georgia Bulldogs may have lost the game to LSU on Saturday but that wasn't the only thing that went wrong. Outside linebacker D'Andre Walker suffered an injury during the game, which led to a cause for concern.
If you are in need of something positive out of Athens, we have some good news though.
Walker was seen practicing with the team on Tuesday during the media's viewing period. The senior out of Fairburn, Georgia likely suffered a minor injury, though we do not know the exact cause.
However, it is likely that Walker, a former 4-star, will be available for the Florida game.

WholeHogSports: Wicklander shows potential in Game 1 of Diamond Hogs' fall series
FAYETTEVILLE -- Patrick Wicklander took the loss in Game 1 of Arkansas' Cardinal and White Series on Tuesday at Baum Stadium, but the freshman showed plenty of promise in his start that was cut short because of a pitch count.
Wicklander, a left-hander from San Jose, Calif., struck out 8 batters, allowed 1 hit and walked 2 in 3 2/3 innings. His Cardinal team lost 9-1 in the opener of the best-of-three series that will continue Thursday at 4 p.m.
Wicklander threw 70 pitches, 43 of which were strikes. The only run he allowed came in his final inning when Casey Opitz singled to score Jacob Nesbit, who had walked and advanced to second base on a fielding error.

Alabama Football Impact: Damien Harris quietly closing in on Alabama record
There are the glamor records like career passing yardage or touchdown receptions. They're easily tracked and follow a linear path.
Damien Harris isn't fighting for one of those.
No, more than halfway through his fourth Alabama season, he's angling toward one of the obscure yet challenging corners of the school record book. Through 392 carries in a Crimson Tide uniform, Harris is averaging 6.7 yards per attempt.
For a ball carrier with at least 300 attempts, that ranks second only to Eddie Lacy. From 2010-12, Lacy averaged 6.8 yards a run. That's 2,402 yards in 355 attempts.

The Seattle Times: Huskies' defensive-line depth will be tested against Colorado
The Huskies are running out of proven options on the defensive line.
Senior Shane Bowman is expected to be out for several more weeks as he recovers from a broken foot, and now senior Jaylen Johnson will be suspended for the first half of Saturday's game against Colorado after his fourth-quarter targeting penalty in the overtime loss at Oregon.
That leaves the Huskies with only three veteran defensive linemen to start Saturday: Greg Gaines, Benning Potoa'e and Levi Onwuzurike.
Veteran walk-ons Josiah Bronson and John Clark have been counted on more the past few games, and they'll likely see even more snaps against Colorado (12:30 p.

LA Times: Arizona's Khalil Tate won't play against UCLA
Defenses have contended with a half-speed Khalil Tate in recent weeks because of an ankle injury that has bothered the Arizona quarterback since early in the season.
Wildcats coach Kevin Sumlin announced Tuesday that Tate would sit out his team's game against the Bruins on Saturday at the Rose Bowl, the latest setback in an injury-marred season for the preseason Heisman Trophy candidate from Gardena Serra High.
"Well, we don't have to chase the fastest kid in the country around," Bruins coach Chip Kelly cracked.
Tate lost that designation when he hurt his left ankle Sept.

Official Site of the Ducks: Football Practice Report: Oct. 16
Venue: Outdoor practice fields
Format: Full pads
Two seasons in a row, Brady Aiello was a starting offensive lineman for the Oregon football team. Two seasons in a row, he entered the next fall without a starting job.
A lesser teammate might have let that affect his preparation. Not Aiello, who kept preparing as if he were a starter, and saw that pay off for the third year in a row last week, when the junior offensive tackle was pressed into action with the first-team offense due to Penei Sewell's injury.
"I've grown accustomed to being ready," Aiello said Tuesday, after Oregon's first of two full-pads practices for its game at Washington State on Saturday (4:30 p.

California Golden Blogs: Vegas calls Cal to be touchdown-favorites over Oregon State
It took awhile for Vegas to chime in with their take on the score when the California Golden Bears play the Oregon State Beavers. Honestly, I don't understand the betting world enough to know if this was because they didn't know what to set or because of apathy surrounding the game.
In any case, their judgment has been set.
The line opened with Cal favored by 7.5 points, but now has Cal favored by just 6.5. I believe the movement of the line reflects many people betting on either a smaller margin of victory or the Beavers winning outright?

Arizona Desert Swarm: What Arizona players said about Rhett Rodriguez being the new starting QB
The Arizona Wildcats are making a quarterback change this weekend against the UCLA Bruins, as sophomore Rhett Rodriguez will make his first career start in place of Khalil Tate, who continues to battle an ankle injury.
Rodriguez's playing time has been limited, but he got his first major action last Friday in UA's 42-10 loss to the Utah Utes.
Rodriguez, the son of former Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez, completed 20 of 38 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown.
Rodriguez, who starred at nearby Catalina Foothills High School, will become the first Tucson-area quarterback to start for the Wildcats since Bill Prickett in 1991.
