West Virginia: The Mountaineers saw an offensive balance that was missing a year ago. But there are no more chances to work the kinks out or get sorely needed experience for a young roster with the start of the Big 12 season already in view.
No. 14 Texas is a six-touchdown favorite over UTEP, which with a 24-14 win over FCS team Stephen F. Austin last week has already matched its victory total for each of the past two seasons. The Miners have had consecutive 1-11 seasons since going 0-12 in 2017. The Longhorns have a 5-0 series lead against […]

North Dakota State has become the preeminent FCS program, winning eight of the last nine national titles, and the Dukes have been their chief competition.

He eventually bought out several competitors, expanding throughout South Florida. In 1968, he merged with the Chicago sanitation company his uncles owned, creating Waste Management Inc., which eventually became the world’s largest trash company.
