UT Vols: Email links Butch Jones to tight end Daniel Helm's departure from Tennessee

Tennessee interim head coach Brady Hoke talks after the Vols lost 30-10 to LSU Daniel Helm had been gone from Tennessee for almost a year when his father sent an email to then-UT chancellor Jimmy Cheek. The last paragraph of Steve Helm’s message read: “I made sure we got Daniel out of there before (Butch) Jones put him in a place where Daniel might have knocked him out. Then, my great straight A kid would have an assault charge. If a member of that football team does finally lose it with Jones and an assault charge is filed, we will provide authorities with everything we know as we will not let that man ruin a young kid’s life.” 'I made sure we got Daniel out' Helm said Cheek never responded.

Akron earns second-ever spot in MAC championship game

Akron came into Week 13 needing to either win or rely on someone else to lose.  In the end, the Zips decided to just go ahead and punch their own ticket to the Motor City, thank you very much. Jumping out to a 24-7 halftime lead Tuesday night, that margin proved to be more than enough for Akron as they easily cruised past rival Kent State in a 24-14 win.  Kent actually outgained its hosts 246-191, but a fumble return for a touchdown with less than 20 seconds left in the second quarter essentially sealed the win for Akron.

Same goes for senior Lowell Lotulelei, who is calling Utah’s potential bowl game his real senior day. Chase Hansen, a redshirt junior, just wants another chance to end this frustrating season on an appropriate note. All Utah (5-6, 2-6) needs is to walk off the turf Saturday evening at Rice-Eccles Stadium with a win over the Colorado Buffaloes and all of those possibilities immediately become a reality. Bowl-game eligibility offers a range of perks, from gifts and gift cards to players, to a week’s

Stanford (mostly) has mind on Notre Dame matchup

No. 21 Stanford will try to focus exclusively on No. 8 Notre Dame when the teams play at Stanford on Saturday. Yes, Stanford (8-3, 7-2 Pac-12) will be facing Notre Dame (9-2) in a network-televised game between two ranked foes with Cardinal running back Bryce Love perhaps making his final statement for the Heisman Trophy -- if he plays. All that typically is enough to create tunnel vision, especially since it is the final regular-season game for both teams, with Stanford trying to finish the season unbeaten at home.
