Shortly after Bryce Drew took the Vanderbilt job this past April, he was informed the Commodores had Baylor?on this years schedule. Clearance Air Max 1 Canada Online .He cringed.So did Baylor coach Scott Drew.They both remembered back in 2007 when then-Oklahoma coach Sean Sutton brought his brother, Scott, also the Oral Roberts head coach, into Stillwater. ORU wound up leaving with a 74-59 win.We both remember reading the article and envisioned what it would be like for the family, Bryce Drew said. No one really wins.Even if we win, Im hurting, Scott Drew said. Theres no real winner.So the Drew brothers figured out a way to scrap the game, with Baylor paying the Commodores to get out of the matchup since it was slated to be played at Vanderbilt.Instead of a contest that figures into the win-loss column, the brothers wound up playing one of the secret scrimmages this past weekend in Nashville. They will play another scrimmage next year in Waco.We didnt want to put anyone in our family through that, Scott Drew said. Including our parents.Their father, Homer, a former Valparaiso head coach, was sitting in the stands -- wearing a neutral-gold shirt.We had to get permission from the NCAA for him to be there, Scott Drew said.Coaches arent allowed to talk about stats or the final score of the scrimmage, but the Drew brothers maintain it was evenly played.It was a tie, Scott said, laughing.It was really close, Bryce added. We split, so neither of us had bragging rights.Scott and Bryce agreed that they will never schedule one another in a regular-season matchup, but are hopeful one day they can play -- in the Final Four.While Bryce didnt want to comment on it, sources told ESPN that a year ago, Bryce took himself out of the equation for the Iowa State job, largely due to the fact that he didnt want to play his brother twice every year in the regular season.The games are so stressful as it is, Bryce said. And there are 350 other Division I teams we can play. Theres no reason to play one another. Air Max 1 Canada Sale . The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club. Wholesale Air Max Canada . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. http://www.discountairmax1canada.com/ . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida States Dalvin Cook broke Warrick Dunns school single-season rushing record last November at home. One year later, the junior running back is in position to break another of Dunns marks.Cook needs 128 yards to surpass Dunns career mark of 3,959 yards from 1993-96. Last season Cook eclipsed Dunns single-season record in nine games en route to 1,691 yards.The record is here to be grabbed, Cook said. When you work hard and do things the right way you get rewarded.Going into Friday nights game against Boston College, Cook is second among running backs from Power 5 schools with 1,134 yards. He was held to 65 yards last week against North Carolina State, snapping a string of five straight 100-yard games.Cook and the20th-ranked Seminoles (5-3, 3-3 ACC, CFP No. 18) face a Boston College defense that is ranked eighth in the Football Bowl Subdivision in rushing defense, allowing only 106.6 yards per game. Cook rushed for only 54 yards in last years 14-0 victory over the Eagles and had 76 two years ago.A Florida State back has not posted a 100-yard game against the Eagles (4-5, 1-4) in their past 11 meetings. Clemsons Wayne Gallman is the only ACC running back to post a 100-yard game against Boston College this season.Their people on the defensive line play great and they play tremendous leverage, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said of Boston Colleges defense. They set edges on the defense and play inside their hands real well.With three games left in the regular season, Cook is also within range of becoming the fifth player in Atlantic Coast Conference history to rush for over 4,000 career yards. Boston College has lost six straight to Florida State but has played them tough the last two meetings. In their last trip to Doak Campbell Stadium two years ago the Eagles lost on field goal with three seconds remaining.---Some other things to watch as Florida State has its first Friday night home game since 1957:McFADDENS STREAK: Fllorida States Tarvarus McFadden looks to become the fifth player in school history to record an interception in five straight games. Air Max 1 Canada Outlet. The last time it was accomplished was with Patrick Robinson in 2007. McFadden, a sophomore cornerback, leads the nation with seven picks, which is the most by a Seminoles player since Samari Rolle also had seven in 1997.SACK MASTERS: The game pairs two of the nations top defensive ends. DeMarcus Walker leads the nation in sacks with 10.5 and is the first Florida State player since Peter Boulware in 1996 to record double-digit sacks two straight seasons. Boston Colleges Harold Landry is tied for third with nine and is tied for the national lead in forced fumbles with five.TAKING ADVANTAGE OF TURNOVERS: FSU has forced a turnover in all nine games and is second in the ACC in turnover differential at plus-seven. The Seminoles have scored 65 points off opponent turnovers (nine touchdowns, one field goal).MAKING MOST OF OPPORTUNITY: Florida State wide receiver Nyqwan Murray has excelled since Jesus Bobo Wilson was lost for the year with a foot injury. Murray has 15 catches for 249 yards and a touchdown in the past two games. In the first seven games, the sophomore had five receptions for 46 yards.ANOTHER RANKED CHALLENGE: Boston College faces its third ranked team, which marks the first time since 2003 that has happened. The Eagles lost by an average of 45.5 points to No. 3 Clemson and fifth-ranked Louisville. Coach Steve Addazio said facing Louisville and FSU in back-to-back games is monumental. I think these are opportunities for you to develop and grow your team. Theyre challenging. But with challenges come opportunities, he said.---More AP college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .---Follow Joe Reedy on Twitter at www.twitter.com/joereedy .
