Charlie Strong is lucky that billionaire T. China Jerseys 2020 . Boone Pickens isnt a Texas alumnus.Pickens has been publicly critical of Mike Gundy, who coaches Oklahoma State, their alma mater.But Gundy was the one gloating after the Cowboys hammered the Longhorns 49-31 on Saturday. The Longhorns allowed 47 points or more for the third time in their first four games for the first time in school history.On Monday, Strong announced that he has demoted defensive coordinator Vance Bedford, whom he publicly supported during the Longhorns bye week. If Strong doesnt turn around the Texas defense, starting Saturday with the showdown against Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry, he might be out of a job soon.The Longhorns were one of 15 FBS teams eliminated from consideration for one of the four spots in the College Football Playoff by The Eliminator this week. Through the first five weeks of the season, 92 of the 128 FBS teams have been eliminated from consideration, leaving 36 teams in contention for the four spots.Heres where the FBS stands after Week 5:Jump to sections: Whos in??| Still in contention | On the fence | Better luck next season | Previously eliminatedWhos in?Theres a shakeup in the top four teams for the available spots in the College Football Playoff. No. 1 Alabama remains in the top spot, even after it got off to a slow start in a 34-6 win over Kentucky, and Ohio State remains No. 2 after crushing Rutgers 58-0. Clemson jumps into the No. 3 spot after knocking off Louisville 42-36 at Death Valley on Saturday night, and Michigan remains No. 4 after winning a 14-7 battle over Wisconsin. Washington emerged as the biggest potential threat to the top four after routing Stanford 44-6 on Friday night.Still in contentionAlabama Crimson TideTrending: UPIs it too early to bring up the Nick Saban-to-Texas rumors again??Baylor BearsTrending: DOWNAfter coming from behind to beat Iowa State 45-42 on the road, the Bears will get bye weeks before and after they play Kansas. You can never have enough time to prepare for and recuperate from the Jayhawks.?Clemson TigersTrending: UPAfter the Tigers defeated Louisville 42-36, ESPNs Football Power Index projects they have an 85 percent chance to win every remaining regular-season game, except their Oct. 29 trip to Florida State (48 percent) and a 69 percent chance to beat the ACC Coastal winner in the ACC title game.?Houston CougarsTrending: UPId go ahead and launch my search for a new head coach.?Louisville CardinalsTrending: DOWNAfter falling at Clemson, the Cardinals playoff chances arent dead. FPI projects Louisvilles remaining schedule as the easiest among any Power 5 school, giving it the best chance (50 percent) to win out during the regular season.?Miami HurricanesTrending: UPThe Hurricanes are going to wear Legend of the U uniforms, like the ones they wore during the 1980s, Saturday against Florida State.

The Cornhuskers get a bye week before playing the Hoosiers in Bloomington, Indiana, on Oct. 15. It will be the first time the teams have played since Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011 and the first time theyve met since 1978. Orville Redenbacher would think thats criminal.?Ohio State BuckeyesTrending: UPTalk about a lopsided rivalry. Ohio State has won 21 straight games over Indiana, dating back to a tie in 1990. Since 1960, the Buckeyes are 45-2-1 against the Hoosiers, who played them close last season. Indiana led 10-6 at the half and 17-13 in the third quarter, before losing 34-27 in Bloomington.?Tennessee VolunteersTrending: UPHey, Volunteers, the 2013 Auburn Tigers want their lucky horseshoe back.?Texas A&M AggiesTrending: UPIf the Aggies want to beat Tennessee on Saturday, they might want to give the Volunteers an early lead. Tennessee trailed Georgia by 17 points before winning 34-31 on a Hail Mary on the final play. The Vols are now 4-0 over the past two seasons in games in which they trailed by at least 14 points.?Washington HuskiesTrending: UPOregon has defeated Washington 12 straight times and hasnt lost to the Huskies since a 42-10 defeat in Seattle in 2003. Yeah, it might get ugly for the struggling Ducks at Autzen Stadium on Saturday.On the fenceAir Force FalconsTrending: UPAir Force had the best ground defense in a 28-14 win over Navy on Saturday.

He spent the second half on crutches on the sideline and his availability this week against UCLA isnt known.?Arkansas RazorbacksTrending: EVENIf Alabama is the benchmark for everyone, the Hogs have showed remarkable progress under Bret Bielema. After losing to the Crimson Tide 52-0 in 2013, Bielemas teams fell 14-13 in 2014 and 27-14 last season. Arkansas hasnt beaten Alabama since a 24-23 win in overtime in 2006.?Auburn TigersTrending: EVENSince Tigers coach Gus Malzahn turned over playcalling duties to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, Auburns offense has piled up more than 1,000 yards in wins over LSU and Louisiana-Monroe.?Boise State BroncosTrending: EVENDont sleep on the undefeated Broncos.

Thats not a good sign with Syracuse coming to town.?Western Michigan BroncosTrending: UPRow that boat.

Freshman Khalil Tate made his debut in a 45-24 loss at UCLA.Cincinnati BearcatsTrending: DOWNThere was a Gunner Kiel sighting in the Bearcats 45-20 loss to South Florida. He came off the bench and completed his first three passes, before throwing eight straight incompletions.Florida State SeminolesTrending: DOWNWhen Florida State fans are including his name in the same breath with Jeff Bowden, its probably not a good thing for defensive coordinator Charles Kelly. The Seminoles rank 105th in scoring defense (35.4 points per game) and 94th in total defense (438.4 yards).Georgia BulldogsTrending: DOWNYeah, it really happened.?Georgia Tech Yellow JacketsTrending: DOWNAt this point, Mark Richt deserves to have his name somewhere at Georgia Techs Bobby Dodd Stadium. After guiding Miami to a 35-21 win at Tech on Saturday, hes 9-0 in games there.

The Spartans are 0-2 for the first time since 2007, and theyve lost back-to-back games for the first time since 2012.?Navy MidshipmenTrending: DOWNAfter falling 28-14 at Air Force on Saturday, the Midshipmen have to hope they beat Army -- and the Black Knights beat the Falcons -- for them to retain the Commander-In-Chiefs Trophy.Oregon DucksTrending: DOWNI cant believe Nike hasnt invented a jersey that can help the Ducks tackle. Theyve dropped three straight games and are 2-3 after five games, the latest theyve been under .500 since finishing 5-6 in 2004.?San Diego State AztecsTrending: DOWNIm guessing San Diego State wont be scheduling South Alabama again. The Aztecs have lost three times in their past 16 games, twice to the Jaguars.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- A judge has ordered organizers of the Rio Olympics to allow peaceful protests inside venues after several fans were escorted out of stadiums for holding up anti-government signs.As Brazils political crisis has deepened, with the Senate taking up impeachment proceedings Tuesday against suspended President Dilma Rousseff, many are increasingly voicing their political grievances at Olympic events. Their almost universal slogan, on handwritten signs, T-shirts and social media, is Fora Temer, a call for the removal of interim President Michel Temer.The International Olympic Committee bans political statements at the games and has pleaded with fans not to disrupt competition. Cellphone video of fans being removed by security forces has been shared widely on social media, drawing comparisons with the kind of censorship seen during Brazils 1964-1985 military dictatorship.Luis Moreira, one of 50,000 volunteers at the games, sparked something of a media craze by posting a photo of his Olympic credential defaced with a hand-sketched Fora Temer sticker. The 25-year-old communications student said he always dreamed of watching the Olympics up close and looked forward to serving as a goodwill ambassador for Rio de Janeiro.But he says he became disillusioned after seeing four heavily armed military commandos grab a seated man at an archery event Saturday and remove him for holding up an anti-government banner. The incident was caught on a cellphone and shared almost 3 million times on Facebook. Rather than be asked to carry out a similar order, Moreira decided to quit as the coordinator of a group of 30 volunteers at the tennis venue.For the IOC to decide what we can and cannot do in my country is not right, Moreira told The Associated Press. Freedom of speech is guaranteed in our constitution, and the committee cant do anything against that.A federal judge in Rio agreed. In a temporary injunction issued late Monday, the judge said that nothing in special legislation passed before the games restricts Brazilians right to free expression. He threatened to levy fines of up to $3,200 on anyone who removes peaceful protesters from venues.The Rio organizing committee said it plans too ask the judge to reconsider his ruling and will make a final appeal, if necessary. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping. This is a global event, and we think and we hope that the stadiums would not become a platform for political debate, IOC spokesman Mark Adams said Tuesday, adding that it nonetheless plans to absolutely respect Brazilian law.Protest at the Olympics is nothing new. At the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014, the head of Russias Communist Party was told to take down a hammer-and-sickle Soviet banner that he and lawmakers held up.South Americas first games couldnt have come at a more politically sensitive time, with senators expected Tuesday to vote overwhelmingly to allow an impeachment trial against Rousseff to move forward.Temer, who took over from Rousseff in May, was booed when he spoke at the opening ceremony. His approval ratings in polls are around the same low levels as Rousseff, blamed by many for widespread corruption in the Workers Party and for steering Latin Americas biggest economy into a recession.To get around the ban on protests inside stadiums, some Brazilians have coordinated with friends each wearing a letter on T-shirts so the message reads Fora Temer when they sit in groups. Others carry smaller signs hidden in their belongings, sometimes fashioned with the Olympic rings.Vinicius Lummertz, president of the government-run tourism board Embratur, said he has no problem with peaceful protests in stadiums as long as the games arent disturbed.Its democracy in action, he told the AP, dismissing concerns the protests could cast Brazil in a negative light. When you think of the size of this democracy, and the youth of this democracy, it tells good things about us.He said the protesters dont speak for the vast majority of Brazilians who have grown disillusioned with 13 years of leftist rule under Rousseff and her predecessor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.People who were against Temers platform were millions, then thousands, then hundreds, he said. Now they are five or six people who get together.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Wilson contributed to this report. ' ' '
