Gore, Peterson ready for Sunday showdown

AP | JANIE McCAULEY | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

Frank Gore got so much attention from his two long touchdown runs last week that even he grew sick of it.

Now he knows how Minnesota's Adrian Peterson must feel on Sundays and every day in between. Peterson even does commercials. His people call him "Purple Jesus" or "AD," short for all day.

Gore watched the highlights of his TD runs of 79 and 80 yards enough times that San Francisco's star running back finally turned the channel.

"I kinda got tired of watching the same thing over and over," he said.

Gore went untouched all the way to the end zone on long runs twice in a win against Seattle, setting a new career-high with the 79-yard run then later topping it to help the 49ers to a 2-0 start. The performance earned him NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors.

Miami trying to make it 'back' vs. Va. Tech

AP | RALPH D. RUSSO | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

It's one of the most asked questions by college football fans and media members: Is (insert lagging program name here) "back?" – as in back to being one of the elite program it once was.

Alabama has been back and forth a bunch over the last decade or so. Notre Dame was back in Charlie Weis' first two seasons, then gone again.

Michigan is already showing signs of being back after a year away. Nebraska has been trying to get back for almost a decade now. Every time the Huskers get close, well, see last week at Virginia Tech.

This week, Blacksburg, Va., is again the site of a possible "they're back" game as No. 9 Miami faces No. 11 Virginia Tech.

The Hurricanes (2-0) have already beaten two teams (Florida State and Georgia Tech) ranked in the preseason and cracked the top 10 of the AP poll for the first time since 2005.
