SOUTH BEND, Ind -- Troy Niklas is among eight players up for the Mackey Award, given annually to the nation's top tight end and an honor given to Tyler Eifert last year.
With one more touchdown reception, Troy Niklas will do something that hasn't been done since 1977 at Notre Dame: Catch six touchdowns in a season as a tight end.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder was supposed to be the crack that would split open and destroy the Vikings. It didn’t work out exactly that way on Sunday.
Bears defensive backs were three of the team’s leading tacklers in the win over Cincinnati.
