Navy’s annual showdown against Army West Point is one of college football’s top rivalry games, and both programs have unveiled alternate uniforms for this matchup in recent years.
This season’s showdown on Dec. 12 appears to be no different, as Navy unveiled an awesome, hand-painted helmet for the matchup against the Black Knights. There are seven different designs for the Midshipmen - one for each position group.
Needless to say, these helmets are one of the best alternate designs from any program in recent memory:

Although emotions ran high after Ohio State's loss to Michigan State, the game wasn't the cause of the problems.
Ezekiel Elliott spoke about his problems with the coaches' play-calling right after the game, and on Monday Urban Meyer responded to the press about the situation. Now we have a well-thought out statement from the Ohio State running back. It seems Saturday night was just a boiling point for everything to come out the way it did.
Maybe it wasn't the right manner, it was a lesson learned and Elliott is human. The running back knew well before Saturday's game that he wouldn't be returning to the Buckeyes next season.

Les Miles' time in Baton Rouge may be coming to an end sooner rather than later.
According to ESPN, there is a "very good possibility" that LSU will buy out the head coach's contract.
"In Louisiana, we expect national championships and we're not in it," the source stated.
Although Miles has won a national championship, that is a relic of a time gone by. The present is important to those involved with the school. LSU boosters have reportedly agreed to pay the $15-20 million it would take to buy out Miles and the Tigers staff.
"If we were competing for a national championship this year, well then we wouldn't be having this conversation," the source continued.
After a loss to Alabama and recent losses after such an amazing start to the season, Miles may leave the Tigers to be tamed by another coach. Whatever the outcome, he didn't seem too worried during a press conference Monday.

Ohio State’s unbeaten season ended with a surprising 17-14 loss to Michigan State on Saturday. Despite the Spartans missing starting quarterback Connor Cook, coach Mark Dantonio’s team found a way to win and altered the outlook of the Big Ten Championship and College Football Playoff picture.
The primary culprit in Saturday’s loss for the Buckeyes was an offense that generated just 132 yards.
After the loss, running back Ezekiel Elliott sounded off on the team’s play-calling. Elliott had only 33 yards on 12 carries against the Spartans. Needless to say, the junior isn’t happy:
Ezekiel Elliott also said he was lobbying with Urban Meyer to change the play calling and get more touches: "It's very disappointing."— Eric Seger (@EricSeger33) November 22, 2015
Zeke Elliott: "I'm disappointed in the positions we were put in. I'm disappointed. I think I do deserve more than 11 carries. I really do."— Eric Seger (@EricSeger33) November 22, 2015
Ezekiel Elliott: "Honestly, that was my last game at the Shoe. There's no chance I'm coming back next year."— Austin Ward (@AWardESPN) November 22, 2015
Elliott: "I deserve more than 11 carries. I really do. I can't speak for the playcaller. I don't know what was going on."— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) November 22, 2015

Clemson's Senior Day will always be one to remember for Daniel Stone.
The senior offensive tackle ran out during the player introductions and couldn't wait a minute longer to propose to his girlfriend. Great scene for all Tiger fans in attendance.
Luckily she said yes. It could've really put a damper on the whole game if she didn't.
Katy Perry is back in Oxford... somewhat.
The pop singer got the crowd hype for the game against LSU and gave a subtle hat tip to Les Miles & Co. with a corndog. Perry said while on College GameDay last year that LSU fans smell like them.
Frank Beamer made Blacksburg, VA what it is. The legendary coach made his mark on every Hokies fan in the past couple decades.
The fans at Lane Stadium gave the Virginia Tech coach the proper welcome for his final home game after 29 seasons.

During last night's game between Oklahoma and Baylor, Terrell Burt went down with an injury.
The Baylor safety had been fighting through an ankle injury that finally seemed to get the better of him as a teammate told him to stop playing on it. That act was misconstrued by commentator Kirk Herbstreit.

Upon first glance, it looked as if Baylor was trying to slow down Oklahoma's offense by faking the injury. When it turned out to be false and Herbstreit realized his mistake, he apologized the next day to Burt and the Baylor Bears.
I'd like to apologize to @BUFootball & Terrell Burt. Last pm I thought he had faked an injury and I was DEAD WRONG. He was trying to— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) November 15, 2015
Fight through an ankle injury he sustained on a precious KO. He kept playing until finally a teammate forced him to sit down to get him out.— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) November 15, 2015
I saw what I saw at the time and didn't realize he had tweaked it earlier. I take full responsibility and apologize sincerely to Terrell.— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) November 15, 2015

Never think your team doesn't keep one eye on the stands. They know who's there until the end, especially when the game isn't going as planned.
As LSU fell behind Arkansas Saturday, some Tiger fans made their way to the exit. That didn't sit too well with some of the players. LSU tight end Dillon Gordon took to Twitter after the game to give his take on the "fans" who left the game early.
