How to Game Plan

Plan of attack: How a college football coach game-plans

NEW YORK (AP) — A big dry erase board hangs on the wall of one side of the meeting room. It has rows and rows of numbers and words handwritten in blue marker that only make sense to someone who speaks the language of football.

On the opposite wall sits another big white board, mostly empty with a few categories written in red marker: 3rd and 1-2; 3rd and 3-6; Red Zone; Goal Line.

The task for Fordham's offensive staff, led by 33-year-old coach Andrew Breiner, on this muggy summer day in the Bronx is to mark up most of that board and finish the second phase of the first run of game-planning for the Rams' opening game of the season.

Swinney says Bryant likely to open as Clemson quarterback

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says junior Kelly Bryant will likely start at quarterback in the national champion's season opener against Kent State on Sept. 2.

Bryant has competed with freshmen Zerrick Cooper and Hunter Johnson for the starting spot held by All-American Deshaun Watson the past three seasons.
