Cam Akers is going to make this electric blue look like a blur going past defenders:
The new LA Rams running back got to work in his new threads for the first time as the team begins workouts:
I’ve always enjoyed re-watching pregame speeches. Here’s a good one from EJ Manuel before the ’Noles hung over 500 yards of total offense on NIU in the Orange Bowl:
