College football scores, schedule, NCAA top 25 rankings, games today: Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Tennessee in action

The college football schedule in Week 7 may look light compared to last week’s monster slate of games involving highly-ranked teams. But if there’s one thing we’ve learned in the 2021 season, it’s to expect the unexpected, and there are plenty of opportunities for intrigue and mayhem with involving the 16 ranked teams in action on Saturday.

In the noon ET window, No. 3 Cincinnati handled a banged-up UCF squad with ease while  No. 10 Michigan State barely came away with a win at Indiana, while No. 12 Oklahoma State stayed unbeaten against Texas. In total, seven ranked teams will

The Power Five conferences have made it clear: If you can’t play due to COVID-19, you will take a loss. The SEC became the latest to announce its cancellation policy on Monday with a forfeit mandate similar to the rest of the Power Five. The policy will hand a forfeit to any team that is unable to play due to COVID-19 issues, while assigning a win in the conference standings to the team able to play. The SEC also will consider financial reimbursement to any team whose game was canceled through no fault of its own. 

If both teams

Alice Dearing makes history but Team GB’s first female black swimmer leaves ‘broken’ | Tokyo Olympic Games 2020

By diving out into the toasty waters of the handsome Odaiba Bay early on a humid Wednesday morning in Tokyo, Alice Dearing had already made history. She is and will always be the first black female swimmer to represent Great Britain at an Olympic Games. But two hours later she left the water in despair following a frustrating early morning that had rendered her maiden Olympic experience bittersweet, already leaving her to yearn for redemption.

Over the course of the seven 1.5km laps in the women’s 10km marathon swimming event, Dearing was never quite able to remain in touch with

Sport climbing’s Olympics debut sends viewers scrambling for more | Olympic Games

For most people watching the debut of sport climbing at the Tokyo Olympics, their knowledge of the sport was probably limited to glimpsing people hanging off ropes when picking the kids up from a birthday party at the local climbing centre.

But if terms such as “dyno” and “scorpion” don’t mean much, most observers would still be able to recognise and marvel at the power, strength and mental toughness needed to compete in one of the Games’ four new sports.

Social media lit up on Tuesday when the men’s qualifying rounds unveiled the explosive attraction of combined sport climbing to

Swimming-Relay silver completes Britain’s best ever Games in the pool

TOKYO, Aug 1 (Reuters) – Duncan Scott became Britain’s most decorated athlete at a single Olympics with his fourth medal from the Tokyo pool on Sunday as the country’s all-time most successful swim team piled on the superlatives in their best ever Games.

The United States took the final 4×100 medley relay gold in world record time but runners-up Luke Greenbank, Adam Peaty, James Guy and Scott — with James Wilby in the heats — smashed a much older benchmark as well as the European record.

The eight medals won at Tokyo 2020, four of them gold, capped the best

‘We are upset to come second’: how culture change lifted GB swimming | Tokyo Olympic Games 2020

James Guy leant back against the wall, too tired to think, too tired to talk. Guy swam seven races in the past five days, the last of them, the butterfly leg of the men’s 4x100m medley relay, just an hour earlier. It had been one of the hardest, and most intense races of his life, and they had lost it to the USA. Now the media wanted to ask him and his teammates all those familiar questions about how it felt, and whether he was disappointed or not. Guy’s usually happy to prattle but this time he closed his

Australia’s Olympic mountain biking couple helping each other to new heights | Tokyo Olympic Games 2020

Canberra couple Dan and Bec McConnell don’t need to go on holidays together. Instead, they go to the Olympics every four (or five) years, plus annual trips to world championships at exotic locations around the globe. This week the married pair will represent Australia in the mountain bike cross-country races, a fourth Olympic appearance for Dan and third for Bec.

“It’s an absolute privilege to be here with my husband,” says Bec. “It’s my third Olympics and he’s been at all three of those with me.” The feeling is mutual. “It’s pretty amazing,” says Dan. “This is our third

The Olympics are here. With the opening ceremony complete, the events of the 2020 Games have officially begun — one year after they were supposed to. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the Games to be pushed to summer of 2021.

Then after an encore presentation of the opening ceremony is shown on NBC at 7 p.m., the events will resume.

My column: Noon kickoffs suck the fun out of Ohio State football games

One trend lately that I can’t stand is how many Ohio State regular season games are starting at noon. Over the past three seasons, at least half of Ohio State’s regular season games have started at noon. By comparison, from 2015-17, the Buckeyes had four games or less kickoff at noon in each of those three seasons.

The only people I am happy for when a noon start is announced is the media covering the game, since it will
