JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Bryan McLendon was a member of Georgia's coaching staff when James Franklin coached Vanderbilt to an upset victory of the 15th-ranked Bulldogs in 2013, the Commodores' first win over a top-25 team in five years. McLendon, who will serve as Georgia's interim head coach Saturday in a TaxSlayer Bowl matchup against Penn State, admired what Franklin did at Vanderbilt. And although Franklin has taken some heat since becoming head coach of the Nittany Lions, McLendon says he's "a heck of a coach.

When the Eagles have the ball When the Eagles and Redskins met in Week 4, Sam Bradford threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns - and Bradford is playing better now than he was then. That should be an encouraging sign for the Eagles, who will have the opportunity to move the ball against Washington. The Redskins allow 240.2 passing yards per game, but the 7.7 yards per attempt is one of the worst averages in the league. Opposing quarterbacks have thrown for 26 touchdowns and only nine interceptions against Washington, plus 11 passes of 40-plus yards.

Bennie Logan joined the starting lineup in Week 9 of the 2013 season and has not missed a game since. That streak stretches 38 regular-season games. During the last 30 games, Beau Allen has been Logan's backup. Allen is likely to get his first start in Logan's place on Saturday when the Eagles host the Washington Redskins. Logan has a calf injury that kept him out of practice this week, and there have not yet been indications that he will return in time for Saturday. That means Allen, a 2014 seventh-round pick, would join Fletcher Cox and Cedric Thornton in the starting lineup.

Eagles defensive lineman Bennie Logan was not at practice on Wednesday because of a calf injury, and his availability for Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins appears in doubt. Coach Chip Kelly disputed a report that the team is considering shutting Logan down for the season. He said Logan is "day-to-day. " If Logan is out, Beau Allen is expected to start at nose tackle. Defensive end Cedric Thornton could also play that spot. "I think Beau's done a really nice job," Kelly said.

SATURDAY'S PLAYOFF elimination game against Washington will be the first the Eagles have played in the Chip Kelly era without Bennie Logan as a force on the defensive line. Backup Beau Allen and defensive end Cedric Thornton will try to bridge a significant gap in a struggling defense, probably for more than just this one game. "Bennie's one of my best friends. I love him. He said he'll be out a couple weeks. Hopefully, we'll be in the playoffs, he'll come back," Thornton said Wednesday.

IMHOTEP SENIOR Jordan McCray could have copped an attitude and become a disruptive and disgruntled player, or just flat-out transferred. Currently, McCray possesses the size, speed and athleticism to play linebacker in college somewhere next season. The problem is that the 6-2, 210-pounder plays defensive end really well for the Panthers (14-0), who will play District 10 Cathedral Prep (14-1) in the Class AAA state championship at 7 p.m. Friday at Hersheypark Stadium. "I thought about it like, 'I really need to play linebacker because if that's what (college)

No, the place wasn't electric as it had been for Notre Dame or Penn State. Lincoln Financial Field wasn't even as full as last week for Memphis. However, Owls diehards saw something Saturday night at the Linc that nobody ever had before, in whatever place Temple has called home. Temple's winning 10 football games, a regular-season Owls first, is the equivalent of what? Men landing on Mars? Should Matt Damon star in the film version of Temple's story? Is that really hyperbole? If you'd thought about it, wouldn't you have expected a Mars landing first?

When Michigan State takes on Penn State on Saturday, the Spartans will bring the momentum from allowing defending national champion Ohio State only 132 yards and five first downs. Those numbers don't bode well for a Penn State team still seeking its offensive identity after 11 games, most recently a 28-16 loss to Michigan. Even Penn State's ever-positive coach James Franklin knows what his offense will face against the Spartans. "They're big and physical and long on the defensive line.

Clumped in a mass of red and white, the St. Joseph football team sprinted onto the field, hungry for a win. With six consecutive Non-Public Group 2 state titles beneath their belt, the team has a lot of expectations to live up to. When the Wildcats met Immaculata in the semifinals Saturday, they were determined to move one step closer to another state title. The Wildcats did just that, flattening the visiting Spartans, 48-6. "Today could have been the last game for us, but our kids did a great job," coach Paul Sacco said.
