Georgia vs Auburn score, highlights: Dawgs win SEC in rout, likely nab playoff bid

Score Center
ATLANTA -- The ticket has been punched for the No. 6 Georgia Bulldogs. In a revenge game for the ages, the Bulldogs destroyed No. 2 Auburn 28-7 in the 2017 SEC Championship Game to take their first SEC title since 2005 and presumably punch a ticket to the College Football Playoff.Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm went 16-for-21 for 183 yards and two touchdowns, running back Nick Chubb rushed for 77, fellow back D'Andre Swift went for 88 and the defense stymied the high-octane Tigers offense that went nuts in a 40-17 win over these Bulldogs last month.What did we learn from Georgia's victory lap inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium?1. Jake Fromm isn't a star-in-the-making, he's just a star: Big stage, no problem for Georgia's true freshman quarterback. As has been the case all year save for one hi...

But he also got ejected. Late in the fourth quarter, K.D. drove to the basket and converted a little runner and apparently thought he got fouled on the play. The referee did not agree, and as such did not call a foul. A mad Durant then yelled at the ref and was promptly ejected.The ejection was no problem for the Dubs, however, who continued cruising along to a big victory. Along the way, they recorded a whopping 46 assists on 55 baskets...

Redskins vs. Cowboys score, takeaways: Dallas rolls Washington in blowout win

Score Center
After sputtering for three straight weeks, the Cowboys finally turned things around on Thursday by steamrolling the Redskins for the second time this season.   Most of the steamrolling was done by former Redskins running back Alfred Morris, who got revenge on his old team by rushing for 127 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' 38-14 win at AT&T Stadium. In a game where Dak Prescott went 11 of 22 and only threw for 102 yards, Morris seemed to relish the roll of carrying the Cowboys to the win. Although Morris got off to a slow start with just 38 yards in the first half, the Cowboys never gave up on their game plan to run the ball down Washington's throat, which allowed Morris to wear down the Redskins in the second half. Overall, Morris averaged 5.9 yards per carry in...

Do you feel like you know which team is going to win, but are hesitant on the point spread? A teaser bet may be the answer. A teaser allows you to change the spread, often 6.5 points, or move the Over-Under 6.5 points. You need to tease at least two bets, and a two-pick teaser returns even money. You can stay within one sport or game or cross over into other sports and games.Before deciding on a teaser for Week 13, you'll want to see Adam Silverstein's picks.Silverstein, an assistant managing editor at CBS Sports, has been picking NFL games since 2002. Though he will take the occasional underdog, Silverstein often looks for value with the favorites, especially after sharp money comes in and lines fall below key numbers. This method allowed him to open the 2017 college football seas...

The first round of the 2017 Hero World Challenge is in the books, and if it was any indication of how the rest of the week is going to go, we're in for one hell of a tournament. Tommy Fleetwood leads at 6 under, but he's trailed closely by Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar at 5 under. Following those two are Kevin Chappell, Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth at 4 under.*waves hands wildly in air and sends off several flares into atmosphere* Then at 3 under are Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and two others.
