    Brian Bennett

    Maryland's Brad Craddock missed his last field goal attempt of the 2014 regular season. We bring this up not to criticize Craddock -- the try, after all, was somewhat of a desperation attempt from 54 yards as the Terrapins tried to tie Rutgers lat...

  3. Gophers hope to add Axe to special season

    Brian Bennett

    Rhys Lloyd doesn't remember much about the 2003 Wisconsin-Minnesota game except the final seconds and his wild dash afterward. Lloyd drilled a 35-yard field goal on the game's final play to give the Gophers a 37-34 win. As he recalls it now, Lloyd...

    Brian Bennett

    Wisconsin got a close-up look at Utah State coach Gary Andersen earlier this year. He brought his Aggies into Madison in September and nearly pulled off the upset, losing 16-14 on a late missed field goal. Could Andersen's next trip to Camp Randal...

    Brian Bennett

    Let's go, Redbirds. Protecting the quarterback is still a work in progress for Wisconsin. Kyle French is getting a second chance as the Badgers' field goal kicker. Purdue feels like it's in a better position to stop Denard Robinson this year. B...

  8. Special teams comes through for WVU

    Brian Bennett

    They have given up kickoff returns for touchdowns, punt returns for touchdowns. Had shanked punts and a blocked field goal, too. So it may have come as a shock to West Virginia fans on Saturday afternoon when the Mountaineers' special teams came t...

    Brian Bennett

    Remember 6-4? We can't have the same score in today's Iowa-Penn State meeting, but this game is shaping up as the same kind of defensive struggle as the Nittany Lions lead 6-3 at the half. (Adam's 12-10 prediction looks pretty good right now). ...

  11. Penn State offense still scuffling

    Brian Bennett

    I'd like to report that the Penn State offense has been liberated from the Alabama defense and is responding well today at Temple. Unfortunately, that's not the case. The Nittany Lions have had two possessions and have only a missed field goal to ...

    Time for more preseason watch list action, and it gets even more exciting when you're talking about kickers. Seriously, you can make fun of kickers until your team needs a 40-yard field goal with three seconds left to win the game. Then it's not s...
