BOSTON (AP) Boston College has extended the contract of football coach Steve Addazio through 2022.
Athletic Director Martin Jarmond made the announcement on Tuesday.
Addazio led the Eagles to a 7-2 record and a No. 17 ranking in The Associated Press Top 25 before losses in their last three regular-season games. They are scheduled to play Boise State in the First Responder Bowl in Dallas on Dec. 26.
LOGAN, Utah (AP) Former Utah State coach Gary Andersen has returned to the Aggies.
Andersen previously was Utah State's coach from 2009 to 2012. He replaces Matt Wells, who had taken over the Aggies after Andersen's first stint with the team. Wells was named head coach at Texas Tech last month.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kansas State hired Chris Klieman of North Dakota State to lead its football program Monday night, passing the reins from retired Hall of Fame coach Bill Snyder to someone with three Football Championship Subdivision titles but little Big 12 experience.
Klieman was hired to lead the Bison by current Kansas State athletic director Gene Taylor, and was seen as one of the front-runners for the Wildcats' job ever since Snyder announced his retirement.
The College Football Playoff semifinalists combined to place 10 players on The Associated Press All-America first team, including a high of four from No. 1 Alabama.
The Crimson Tide had six players chosen to the three All-America teams, more than any other school. No. 2 Clemson has three first-teamers, No. 4 Oklahoma has two All-Americans - including quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray - and No. 3 Notre Dame had one.
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Receiver Antoine Wesley is skipping his final season at Texas Tech to enter the NFL draft, marking the third straight year an offensive star of the Red Raiders left early to turn pro.
Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes, an MVP candidate this year, did it two seasons ago and was drafted 10th overall by the Chiefs. Receiver Keke Coutee made the move after the 2017 season and was taken in the fourth round by the Houston Texans.
