Start time, how to watch and stream ‘Monday Night Football’

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will make his Monday Night Football debut tonight on ESPN, when the Birds take on the Dallas Cowboys under the lights at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

In the booth will be play-by-play announcer Steve Levy, whom most sports fans probably know from his years as a SportsCenter anchor (and his famed “bulging disc” blooper from 1995). Alongside Levy in ESPN’s three-person booth will be former Eagles executive and scout Louis Riddick and former NFL quarterback Brian Griese. Reporting from the sidelines will be King of Prussia native Lisa Salters.

Last year, the ESPN crew called the Eagles’ Week 12 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, which featured Carson Wentz’s last touchdown pass as a member of the Birds. This time around they’ll get Hurts, who has impressed Griese despite the fact he’ll only be making his seventh NFL start.

“I’ve watched all the games

It was another wild weekend of college football that saw national title contenders Texas A&M and Clemson get stunned by Arkansas and NC State respectively. With the title picture once again shaken up, college football analyst Paul Finebaum has released his new top 4.

Appearing on SportsCenter this morning, Finebaum listed off his new top 4. Naturally, he had SEC powerhouses Alabama and Georgia at the top of the list. Filling up the final two spots are Oregon and Penn State, who boast some of the most impressive wins of the season to date.

However, Finebaum made it clear that he isn’t totally sold on the Nittany Lions just yet. He didn’t love how they looked against Villanova on Saturday, and feels that they’re wins over Wisconsin and Auburn don’t feel

In most instances within sports, an opposing player going down with an injury during play is an opportunity to take a big advantage. But at a recent high school football game, one player saw an injured opponent as an opportunity to do something nice.

During a recent high school football game in Iowa between Charles City and New Hampton, wide receiver Mario Hoefer of Charles City was photographed helping out New Hampton’s Carter Steinlage, who’s leg was cramping during the game. The photo has since gone viral.

“I knew exactly how that felt,” Hoefer said, via the GlobeGazette. “My first reaction was, ‘Okay there’s no trainers over here yet.’ So I’m about to help stretch him out. I did that for a bit and waited for the trainers to come over.”

ESPN SportsCenter called what Hoefer did “true sportsmanship” and shared the image.

The Oregon Ducks’ upset over the No. 3 Buckeyes dropped Ohio State’s season record to 1-1. While that’s the short-term result of this game, the longterm result could be the loss of some future potential recruits.

According to Oregon insider Jarrid Denney, Ducks’ safety Marko Vidackovic walked past a group of Ohio State recruits visiting Columbus for this afternoon’s big game. The young prospects reportedly looked “absolutely stunned.”

“You boys better come to Oregon,” Vidackovic reportedly said.

Ohio State has consistently topped Oregon in recruiting rankings in recent years.

The Buckeyes 2021 recruiting class featured seven five-star and 13 four-star recruits, landing them the No. 2 overall ranking, per 247Sports. The Ducks followed behind with zero five-star and 19 four-star recruits in the No. 6 position.

This coming year, Oregon is already starting to close that gap. With one five-star and nine four-stars in
