Penn State fires Joe Paterno A hall of fame career ends in devastation. Joe Paterno was fired by Penn State after the scandal with Jerry Sandusky came back to light. What will the sidelines of the Nittany Lions look like now? How will the program bounce back from this huge distraction? Football is Paterno's life and without the game, there will be a huge void in his life going forward. It's sad that his career had to end like this.

(AP Photo/Dave Martin) It was hyped up as the game of the century, the showdown, the best game ever. Alabama vs. LSU lived up to the hype and did not disappoint. There were future NFL players all over the field that were making big hits, catching great passes, running the ball with authority, and so much more.  LSU came away with a 9-6 overtime victory over Alabama with a made field goal by Junior kicker Drew Alleman. 

LSU put themselves in a great position to play for the National Championship. The SEC has won the last five championships and is clearly the best conference in the country.  There next three games are against Western Kentucky, Ole Miss, and Arkansas.  University of Arkansas is playing some great football right now and presents the biggest challenge. Can LSU finish the season strong and hold up the championship trophy on January 9, 2012 in the Louisiana Super Dome?
