The Giants and the Chiefs are playing this weekend and as NY Daily News’ Pat Leonard writes, the matchup of Davis Webb vs. Patrick Mahomes will have to wait:

“It wasn’t bad. I wasn’t mad at him. I wasn’t mad at anybody. I was just anxious,” Webb said of transferring, something he never could have foreseen entering college. “I rooted Pat on his last year at Tech, my last year at Cal. I watched every Tech game on film and live TV. He and I are really close. We would meet together every day, we were in the same room with Kliff. That was a great room.”

“Kliff went with the hot hand,” he added. “I would, too, if I was the coach in that situation. I wasn’t too upset, I just wanted an opportunity. So I move on to Cal, was voted captain there, had great teammates, so it was worth it.”

The BC Lions’ Matt Baker profiles former Red Raider footballer Micah Awe:

Once the final whistle is blown to end your season, the day-to-day grind can change in an instant. Just ask Micah Awe: along with getting prepared to tackle his winter workout routine, the stud linebacker has already started a pretty important offseason job at the University of Illinois. The Petroleum Engineering major from Texas Tech will be spending most of his days working on a project funded by the Department of Energy in the United States.

β€œRight now I am just getting started so it’s a lot of paperwork and getting my email ready, but I’m working on core analysis and reservoir simulations. That is more of what I specialized in back in college,” Awe explained.
