There were several great sports stories over the weekend.

Duke was stunned by St.John’s. Texas knocked off Oklahoma. Washington beat Arizona on a buzzer-beater.

I enjoyed calling the Alabama-florida game.

The highlight of the weekend took place in Minnesota. Eagles over Patriots. Congrats to coach Pederson, Nick Foles, Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman and the entire team. Underdogs through the playoffs, they beat Tom Brady and company.

I had a great time calling the Baylor-Florida game over the weekend. The Gators were on fire with trifectas in the win. Chris Chiozza had a big game for Florida.

Kentucky got a big win at West Virginia. Never count John Calipari and his young ‘Cats out. They rallied in the second half to get a big W, the first over a ranked team this season.

There were a lot of upsets last wee. Penn State handed Ohio State its first league loss of the season. NC State and Virginia Tech beat North Carolina, South Carolina beat Florida. And Mississippi Valley State won its first game of the season!

It has been a fun season so far.

The Super Bowl is set as Tom Brady and the Patriots advanced with a comeback win over the Jaguars in the AFC Championship. It did not took good when the Pats trailed 20-10. Rob Gronkowski was injured and lost for the rest of the game.

Brady threw two touchdowns to Danny Amendola and New England moved to a record 10th Super Bowl. Congrats to Bill Belichick and his team. 

Next up is a showdown against the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles. Nick Foles and company trailed Minnesota 7-0 before putting up 38 straight points. 

Two great fan bases will go to Minnesota for the Super Bowl.

John Calipari’s team survived a gutty effort by the Commodores. The ‘Cats are young but can make noise in the tough SEC. Calipari can motivate this team as they move forward. I enjoyed calling their game on Saturday.

I was so impressed with Virginia and its defense holding North Carolina to 49 points. The Cavaliers make the extra pass to get good shots. Tony Bennett has a legit Final Four contender.

Tough weekend for blue bloods Duke, Kentucky and Not Carolina. The Blue Devil loss was stunning as NC State had been blown out by Notre Dame earlier in the week.

West Virginia got a big win over Oklahoma.
