College football is back in the best way (unless you’re an LSU fan), plus Judge, Pujols keeps hitting the home run

Hello all! Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day! Hope you enjoy a long weekend as we bring you a special holiday edition of the CBS Sports HQ AM newsletter.

Let’s get it right.

It’s not a good morning for…

The LSU . tigers

I know I’m supposed to write for a living, but I’m not sure I have the words to describe this. Oh, okay. here we are.

LSU fans, I’m sorry. I am very very sorry. This loss is one for the ages.

  • With just over four minutes left, LSU quarterback Jaden Daniels have found cut out for jenkins On the 22-yard fairway, the extra cut-off point FloridaLead to 24-17.
  • Then the LSU defense forced a three and walked out, and Florida a chase. But Malik Nabr I’m afraid punctuation – his second night. FSU’s Brendan Gantt He recovered at LSU’s 8-yard streak with 2:15 left. Game over, isn’t it?
  • wrong – wrong – wrong. At the third goal from the 1 yard line, Seminole runs back Trishawn Ward Fumbled in the stadium, the LSU Mekhi Wingo recovered. Now you might be asking “Why did Florida even risk throwing the ball?” You would be right to ask for that. It wasn’t the best idea in world history. In any case…
  • Daniels then led LSU in one minute twenty-one seconds, 11 games, 99 yards, culminating in a touchdown pass to Jenkins as time runs out. Going to work overtime, right?
  • wrong – wrong – wrong. Shim Brown Withholding the extra point, Florida retained win 24-23.

I’m just tired of typing it.

This was college football at its height. There have been a few times when fans on both sides have their hands on their heads and their jaws on the floor – while reacting to the exact same play. She was beautiful, ugly, amazing, and genius. You can’t write a text with more twists and turns. Welcome back college football.

It does not mention the honorable

Good morning everyone, especially…


no. 3 Georgia Bulldogs…

If you think that Georgia Bulldogs They were going nowhere after the national championship, think again. The Bulldog opened his title defense using 49-3 win over No. 11 Oregon.

  • It’s Georgia’s biggest win ever over an AP ranked team. Bulldogs scored landings in each of their first seven drives.
  • Stetson Bennett He went 25 for 31 passes for 368 yards with touchdown passes to Ladd McConkey And the Adonai Mitchell.
  • Even after losing five players in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, Georgia’s defense was in control. pick up the bulldog Bo Knicks twice and only allowed 4.7 yards per attempt.

This is the third time since the start of last season that Georgia has caught a competitor ranked with three points or less. All other teams sum I did it twice during that time. aggressively, Things were as good if not betterOur college football correspondent Sally Barrett writes.

Meanwhile, college football expert Sheehan Jayaraja said, Name Georgia for the first “winner” title in Winners and losers column from the first week.

…and good morning also to No.. 2 Ohio State Bucks

So far, so good for Ohio BucksDefense under a new defensive coordinator Jim Knowles. With Buckeye’s powerful attack struggling, it was the defense that went up 21-10 against 5th seed Notre Dame.

While it wasn’t the offensive blast that we’ve known from Ohio lately, The Buckeyes still got an A+ in Barrett’s Week 1 درجات scores. Meanwhile, Sheehan says The offense is a cause for concern.

  • Jiargah: “Ohio State needed a handful of miraculous plays from Stroud along the field to create an attack against Notre Dame…They looked lethal after Smith Ngigba was injured. Notre Dame’s defense dictated the game for much of the night… Any idea that Ohio State is a contender for the title is flawless in context Alabama Or Georgia looks like so far.
