Rocky Mount (10-2) vs. Wilson Fike (7-6)

Season so far: Only 12 games into the 2017-18 season, the Gryphons sit at 10-2, the same number in the win column as last year’s team.

Villanova needed just a week to reclaim its lost No. 1 ranking in the AP Top 25. West Virginia waited a lot longer — nearly six decades, in fact — to get back to its position at No. 2.

When first-year head coach Kevin Keatts and N.C. State toppled No. 2 ranked Arizona in November, impressive a win as it was, there was no rest or time for reflection.

The Wolfpack (11-5, 1-2 ACC) wrapped up that upset in the Bahamas after a 7 p.m. start and were back playing 15 hours later, an…

NEW ORLEANS  — Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers had a first down at the New Orleans 21 with 41 seconds left and a chance for a winning touchdown that seemed improbable when they trailed by more than two touchdowns late in the first half.
