LSU, Stanford, MSU, and OSU all recieve new Nike Pro Combat uniforms

Nike presented four new uniforms today for LSU, Stanford, MSU, and OSU for games against rivals later this season. The new Pro Combat jerseys stay relatively close to the old jersey designs except for Ohio State. The Buckeyes wore an all-scarlet, throwback uniform from Nike against Michigan last year. This year, forget about silver helmets with buckeye patches, go with a grey Alabama-like helmet with a jersey that features a mix of the classic scarlet and the new metallic-grey. LSU's only changes to their uniform were the collar and helmet colour, Stanford chose to go with a new black helmet, and Michigan State threw in some gold instead of white. LSU  plans to wear its all-white look for Oct. 22 vs. Auburn, Stanford Nov. 27 vs. Notre Dame, Michigan State Oct. 15 vs. Michigan and Ohio State Oct. 29 vs. Wisconsin.

Brady throws for 517 yards and 4 TDs, Pats roll on Monday Night

Tom Brady threw for 517 yards and 4 TDs during a Monday Night duel against Chad Henne and the Miami Doplhins. Both QBs impressed however the Patriots managed to get the easy win. Brady had one early mistake by throwing his first interception in 358 attempts, but was spot on for the rest of the night. It took Henne a while to get things started for Miami as he threw for 416 yards, but the game was out of reach by then. New England has routed Miami once again after last years impressive rout in Miami on Monday Night. New England's offense looked better than last year as they racked up a total of 622 yards. Despite the large margin, the game was an aerial show as the quarterbacks threw for a combined total of 906 yards in the game, an NFL single game record.
