(WVUE) -

St. Augustine's football team advanced to the 2016 Division I quarterfinals thanks to their stingy defense holding Byrd to 15 points and the Purple Knights look to have another strong unit in 2017.

Monday, defensive tackle Dante Carter and defensive back Donniel Ward-Magee announced they will be sticking together in college, both committing to Nicholls' Class of 2018.

The seniors took to Twitter to simultaneously announce their commitments:

Nicholls is the first local team to kick off their season as they host McNeese State on Wednesday, August 31st at 7 PM.

The guy was playing phenomenal, and that's really tough," said Saints quarterback Drew Brees. But the show must go on, and the Packers will now turn to Brett Hundley. He's not Rodgers, but that doesn't mean he can't be effective. "You understand that Brett Hundley has been behind Aaron for the last...

    For the first time since 2013, the Saints record sits over .500. The Saints are riding a 3-game winning streak into Green Bay this Sunday. Drew Brees and the offense are doing what they do, score a lot of points. But the big story with the Black and Gold is the defense. They scored three touchdowns against Detroit. It took the unit 74 games combined to get three defensive scores before Sunday. Brees likes the position of his team right now, but there's still a lot of football left i...more>>

Two back-to-back wins against top 25 teams puts the Tigers back in the rankings good graces. The Tigers come back in at No. 23.  The big mover in my poll, the Penn State Nittany Lions. After a lackluster performance at Syracuse, Clemson surrendered the No. 2 spot. Penn State could lose their lofty perch this wee...
