With dreadlocks and untied shoelaces flying as he makes another long run for Michigan, Denard Robinson has rocketed into the conversation identifying the best college football player in the United States. However, his work thus far this season raises the question: How could a quarterback with this much talent take so long to grab the attention of the college football nation? The 6-foot, 193-pound sophomore came from Deerfield Beach, Fla., as a four-star recruit with great speed (4.32 seconds in the 40-yard dash)

MOBILE, Ala. - Florida State's EJ Manuel passed for a touchdown and rushed for another on the South's first two drives in a 21-16 victory over the North in the Senior Bowl on Saturday. Manuel and running backs Stepfan Taylor and Mike James combined to put the game away for senior NFL prospects on the South's final drive. Stanford's Taylor carried five times for 32 yards and caught a 6-yard pass from Manuel. Manuel converted a fourth-and-1 play on a sneak to set up a 5-yard touchdown run for Miami's James with 2 minutes, 41 seconds left.

NEW ORLEANS - Brendan Gibbons drilled a 37-yard field goal down the middle in overtime to lift Michigan to a 23-20 victory over Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl last night. The victory capped an impressive debut season for head coach Brady Hoke, who has led the Wolverines (11-2) back to prominence with a BCS bowl victory. Denard Robinson highlighted an otherwise unspectacular night with touchdown passes of 45 and 18 yards to Junior Hemingway. Virginia Tech (11-3) had more than double Michigan's total yards, 377-184, and had 22 first downs to Michigan's 12 but settled for four field goals in regulation by third-string kicker Justin Myer.

TAMPA, Fla. - Steve Spurrier's plan to use two quarterbacks in the Outback Bowl worked so well that Dylan Thompson and Connor Shaw both earned game balls. That's a first for the Head Ball Coach, who has a well-known penchant for benching struggling QBs. Except in this case, South Carolina's winningest coach used his talented pair of passers by design. Shaw began Tuesday's 33-28 victory over Michigan with a 56-yard touchdown pass to Damiere Byrd. Thompson closed it out by throwing a 32-yard TD strike to Bruce Ellington in the final minute to help South Carolina match the school record for victories in a season.

Penn State University's first football game since the firing of coach Joe Paterno over his handling of allegations of child-sex abuse was the most-watched noon college football contest on ESPN since at least 2001, the Walt Disney Co. network said in an e-mail. The University of Nebraska's 17-14 victory in State College was seen in 3.8 percent of U.S. homes in the top 56 metered television markets, ESPN spokeswoman Gracie Blackburn said, citing Nielsen Holdings NV.

MOBILE, Ala. - Denard Robinson's transition to wide receiver includes some new habits and adjustments. The former Michigan quarterback has to get better at running routes and getting separation, but he's not about to start tying his shoes. At Ann Arbor, Mich., Robinson was known for his speed, long runs, and untied shoes. All those traits have been on display heading into Saturday's Senior Bowl. Robinson insisted he's not about to start tying his shoes, but everything else about his game is changing.

Blowout losses hurt; but knowing you never had a chance helps you move on more quickly. Building a comfortable lead early on a Sunday, then watching your opponent slowly chip away at your margin is much more painful. Every handoff to his running back, every pass to her receiver, makes the stomach churn just a little more. By the time the final nail is driven into your coffin, and your lead vanishes late on a Sunday or Monday night, you're emotionally exhausted. But there's nothing worse than watching that lead slip away simply because you made a boneheaded lineup decision.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 9 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Nick Foles, QB, Eagles at Texans. Foles has been finding his groove over the last three weeks, though he is still tossing as many interceptions as TDs. Houston's defense excels against the run, while its secondary poses few problems to opposing passers. Foles should find great success, likely posting his second three-TD outing of the season. Ronnie Hillman, RB, Broncos at Patriots. Everyone is expecting an aerial showcase in this game, and we'll certainly get that.

I can't say that I'm disappointed in Robbie Rogers. Unless he chose to, it was not his responsibility to be a martyr to the cause. And even if it is 2013, and no matter how far we like to say we've advanced as a society in tolerance and understanding, Rogers would still face tremendous pressures as being the first openly gay player to participate in a male professional team sport. If Rogers, the 25-year-old former MLS Best XI selection and U.S. men's national team member, decided it was in his best interest to retire from the sport after announcing in Febuary he was gay, who am I to question his wisdom in dealing with this most personal issue?

Denard Robinson's position for the final game of his college career is a secret. The three-year starting quarterback might not throw for No. 19 Michigan against No. 11 South Carolina on New Year's Day in the Outback Bowl. He probably will catch some passes, lining up as a running back or receiver. Robinson said he hopes showing that he can make plays without taking snaps will help NFL teams see what he can do. Texas Tech said Monday that three Red Raiders won't face Minnesota in Friday's Meineke Car Care Bowl because they violated undisclosed team rules.

Carlos Hyde scored on a 2-yard run in overtime, giving No. 6 Ohio State a 21-14 win over host Wisconsin on Saturday and keeping the Buckeyes' hopes of a perfect season alive. The Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0 Big Ten) clinched the Leaders Division title outright with the win. But they are ineligible for the postseason as part of their punishment for NCAA violations under former coach Jim Tressel, and the best they can hope for is to end the year unbeaten and to maybe capture the AP Top 25 title.

Snyder did not discuss the nature or severity of the injury, but Yahoo Sports reported that Klein was removed from the game because of fears of a concussion. The website, citing a source, reported that Klein could not remember scoring on a 1-yard run that gave KS a 38-17 lead.
