New England takes on Green Bay, which means their kickers are prominently featured in Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 13. As productive as Stephen Gostkowski and Mason Crosby have been this season, however, one of the bigger surprises has been the performance of rookie Cody Parkey. An udrafted free agent from Auburn, Parkey beat out incumbent Alex Henery for the Eagles’ kicking job in training camp and all he’s done is miss just two of his 64 kicks thus far.

Happy Thanksgiving, college football fans. It's the best day and weekend of the sports calendar. According to me, at least.

Pac-12 2014 Week 14 Preview and Predictions

It’s pretty simple for Pac-12 fans.

Down South, UCLA is in control. Beat Stanford and Jim Mora’s bunch gets a rematch with the Ducks. A Bruins loss, however, makes this Territorial Cup arguably the most anticipated meeting in the desert in the history of the rivalry.
