Weeks after three-time Pro Bowl running back and locker room leader Steven Jackson left the St. Louis Rams for the Falcons, Jackson's former team could add a bruising runner that reminds fans of him. The Rams are scheduled to meet with former Alabama running back Eddie Lacy, according to reports. St. Louis is also scheduled to visit with Keenan Allen, Justin Hunter, Khaseem Greene and Kyle Long.
It's easy to confuse a close game with a good one. Friday's Russell Athletic Bowl between Rutgers and Virginia Tech in Orlando was close, not good. The Hokies slipped past the Scarlet Knights 13-10 in overtime, despite gaining just 195 total yards.
A win by Rutgers could have historical implications for both schools. The Scarlet Knights will finish with a 10-win season for only the third time in school history if they defeat the Hokies. Virginia Tech, meanwhile, hopes to avoid a losing season for the first time since 1992.
