Burrow takes Heisman in landslide

NEW YORK (AP) — As he did with several of his football games this season, Joe Burrow turned the Heisman Trophy voting into a rout.

The LSU quarterback has won the most prestigious award in college football after throwing for 4,715 yards and an SEC-record 48 touchdowns for the top-ranked Tigers. Burrow received 2,608 points and 841 first-place votes, a record 90.7 percent of all the first-place votes available. He’s the first LSU player to win the Heisman Trophy since Billy Cannon in 1959.

Burrow did it after failing to receive significant playing time at Ohio State. He transferred to LSU at the end of the 2017 season and threw for over 7,600 yards and 64 TDs as a Tiger.

Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts was second with 762 points. Quarterback Justin Fields of Ohio State was third and defensive end Chase Young of Ohio State was fourth.


Perry, Navy overwhelm Army

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Quarterback Malcolm Perry helped No. 21 Navy beat Army for the first time in four tries.

Perry ran for a career-high 304 yards and two touchdowns in the No. 21 Midshipmen’s 31-7 victory in Philadelphia. He ran for a 55-yard TD in the first half, added a 44-yard scamper and set Navy season records in yards rushing and total 100-yard games.

The game was tied 7-7 in the final minute of the first half until Perry took the snap at the 1-yard line and handed off the ball to receiver Chance Warren, who threw to Jamale Carothers for the score.

The 10-2 Middies won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for the 16th time and improved to 61-52-7 all-time against the Cadets.


BC hires OSU assistant

BOSTON (AP) — Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley is the new Boston College football coach.

Hafley has helped turn around an Ohio State defense that struggled last year but enters the College Football Playoff leading the nation in yards per play at 3.93. He is a finalist for the Frank Broyles Award that goes to the best assistant coach in college football.

Hafley spent seven seasons in the NFL before joining the Buckeyes this year.

Boston College fired Steve Addazio the day after the Eagles finished the regular season 6-6.


Ducks down Wolverines in Ann Arbor

UNDATED (AP) — Fifth-ranked Michigan continues to struggle since a 7-0 start elevated the Wolverines from unranked to No. 4 in The Associated Press poll less than two weeks ago.

Oregon dealt Michigan its second straight loss and third in four games as Payton Pritchard scored 19 of his 23 points after halftime to lead the 10th-ranked Ducks to a 71-70 overtime win at Ann Arbor. Pritchard provided 13 straight Oregon points at the end of regulation and the start of OT.

USC receives notice in college corruption case

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California's basketball program has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA following a federal investigation into corruption and bribery in the sport.

The school said in a statement Friday night it has “cooperated with the NCAA since it first became aware of the issues" raised in the notice, and it “looks forward to an expeditious resolution of this matter.”

International have best shot at rare win in Presidents Cup

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Tiger Woods and Ernie Els both have reason for optimism on the final day of the Presidents Cup.

Els and his International team had a 10-8 lead going into Sunday singles. It's the first time since 2003 the International team has led after the four sessions of team play. It needs only six points from the 12 matches to end 21 years of not winning.

Meanwhile, the caddie for Patrick Reed will not be on the bag for the final session of the Presidents Cup after shoving a spectator who he felt was encroaching too close to Reed while cursing him.
