Penn State's James Franklin is still fuming over officiating error against Auburn

  Penn State's James Franklin is still fuming over officiating error against Auburn During the second quarter of Saturday’s game, the referees somehow managed to take two downs from the Nittany Lions on an intentional grounding call instead of one. It essentially led to Penn State punting on third down instead of fourth, which had Franklin fuming at halftime. Franklin still wasn’t over it on Thursday. On the "Penn State Coaches Show," Franklin admitted the team had to “clean up” some penalty issues. He then took the opportunity to take a shot at the SEC officiating crew that handled the Auburn game.“I think we have Big Ten officials this week,” Franklin said, via Mark Brennan of 247Sports.

The top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide look to remain unbeaten when they take on SEC West rival Texas A&M Aggies in an SEC on CBS matchup on Saturday night. The Tide (5-0, 2-0), last year's national champion, are coming off back-to-back blowout wins, including a 42-21 win over Ole Miss last week. The Aggies (3-2, 0-2), who dropped out of the rankings, have lost both of their conference games, including a 26-22 home defeat to Mississippi State last week. Alabama has won the past eight matchups with Texas A&M.

LSU football lifts COVID-19 entrance protocols

  LSU football lifts COVID-19 entrance protocols Practically all virus-related restrictions for attending games are eliminated. Fans under the age of 12 no longer have to wear masks in outdoor spaces, but guests must still wear face coverings in the indoor portions of Tiger Stadium. "This is amazing progress," Dr. O’Neal added. "But the game is not over. This virus will surge again, and Louisiana must be prepared before it arrives yet again by getting vaccinated. The vaccines we have are safe and effective, and getting vaccinated is our best shot at defeating COVID-19."LSU says coronavirus hospitalizations in Louisiana have decreased by 80% over the past seven weeks.

Sophomore quarterback Bryce Young has been solid this season. He leads the team in passing, completing 108 of 148 passes (73 percent) for 1,365 yards and 17 touchdowns.

In that game, he completed 20 of 22 passes (90.9 percent) for five touchdowns and one pick.

Why Texas A&M can cover

Despite that, the Crimson Tide are not a lock to cover the Alabama vs. Texas A&M spread. That's because the Aggies had been ranked after a 3-0 start. Junior running back Isaiah Spiller has been Texas A&M's most consistent performer on offense and ranks fifth in the SEC, averaging 90.6 yards per game. He has carried the ball 68 times for 445 yards (6.5 average) and two touchdowns. In last week's loss to Mississippi State, he carried 16 times for 100 yards. It was his third 100-yard rushing game of the season.

Sophomore running back Devon Achane has also had a solid start to his season. In five games, he has carried 43 times for 296 yards (6.9 average) and two touchdowns. In a 41-10 season-opening win over Kent State, Achane carried 12 times for 124 yards (10.3 average) and two scores. Last week, he had eight carries for 69 yards (8.6 average), including a 41-yard run.
