Elliott Admits Drug Use, Luck Activated, UCLA’s Greatest Comeback, USC’s Olson’s Dream Come True


In Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott’s domestic abuse hearing, he admitted to using drugs while at Ohio State. Elliott is appealing his 6 game suspension for domestic abuse of his former girlfriend. No word yet on whether he’ll start the season.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been activated from the physically unable to perform list (PUP) but will still miss at least the first game of the season if not a few weeks more. At $140 million dollars, the Colts are anxious for their franchise quarterback to get back on the field.

On Sunday night in College football, UCLA mounted one of the greatest comebacks in college football history with a 45-44 victory after being down 34 points in the third quarter to Texas A&M. Quarterback Josh Rosen led the Bruins to an epic comeback with 292 yards and four touchdowns all in the fourth quarter.

In a heartwarming moment in college football history, USC’s Jake Olson, a blind long snapper entered the game against Western Michigan in the 4th quarter to snap the ball for an extra point.  Olson lost his left eye when he was 10 months old due to a form of eye cancer. When he was 12 years old, he learned he would need surgery to remove his right eye. Olson grew up a big USC football fan and playing in a game was a dream come true. USC’s coach spoke with Western Michigan’s coach prior to the game and agreed if Olson came in (which would happen if the game was out of reach for either team), the team wouldn’t rush him. He said to the players, “I told them the entire situation and said, ‘You can’t touch him, you can’t yell at him, everybody get down so it looks like a football play but nobody move. I told them, ‘What we’re about to do is bigger than the game. This is about what kind of people we want to be, what we represent; this is bigger than us.’”
