On This Day in Sports History
DECEMBER 8, 1940. George Halas and the Chicago Bears beat the Washington Redskins 73-0 in the NFL Championship, the largest margin of victory in league history. The Bears had lost to those same Redskins 7-3 just three weeks prior.

KICK SAVE. The men defeated Buffalo 84-63 at Hilton Coliseum last night, and since the first half drove all of us to drink, Monte Morris decided to change his shoes at the break. Full game highlights are below.
GORGEOUS GEORGES. Georges Niang had himself a night against the Bulls, scoring a career-high 31 points (21 in the second half) while tallying 12 rebounds, three assists and two blocks for his third career double-double.
FRESH START. After a dismal start to the season, the women are turning the page on November.

JOHN OF ALL TRADES. What exactly is a Director of Scouting? Well, new Director of Scouting John Kuceyeski clues us in.
Horny vs. Dreamy – Part II
WHAT ON EARTH HAPPENED HERE? Part Deux ended in horrid fashion for Fred Hoiberg and the Bulls. Chicago gave up a 16-point fourth quarter lead—42 points total—to lose to Jeff Hornacek and the Suns 103-101 in the final seconds.
Around The Country
TECHNOLOGY MADNESS. And in case you were wondering, Microsoft's $400 million deal to outfit the NFL with Surface tablets is going swimmingly.
HEISMAN HOPEFULS. Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry and Deshaun Watson have been chosen as the three Heisman Trophy finalists. If the list seems like it's missing something important, it's Baker Mayfield.
HACKED, OF COURSE. Former Los Angeles Laker Darius Morris (allegedly) took to Twitter to unload on head coach Byron Scott, who, to be fair, is bad.
BOWL SCHEDULE AND PICKS. Every game with picks from our favorite SB Nation college football brethren.
THAT'S A BIT OF A SNAG. The Dodgers had nearly landed Reds closer Aroldis Chapman when the trade stalled due to allegations that Chapman fired a gun and choked his girlfriend in October.
AGELESS. Thirty-nine year old Kevin Garnett took a pretty assist from Ricky Rubio and flushed over Blake Griffin like it's 1999.
USC IS INVOLVED IN A THING AGAIN. Steve Sarkesian is suing USC for more than $30 million for wrongful termination and breach of contract. He will claim alcoholism as a disability.
OUTKICKED HIS COVERAGE. New South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp finds the best way to sell his recruiting abilities and call his wife hot at the same time.
Muschamp asked his wife to stand up: "Gamecock Nation, if you don't think I can recruit, look at her and then look at me."— Dr. Saturday (@YahooDrSaturday) December 7, 2015
YOU SAID YOU WOULD TRAVEL, IOWA. Rose Bowl tickets are three times more expensive than any other bowl. The cheapest ticket on StubHub is currently $493 more than admission to the Peach Bowl between Houston and Florida State.
PANCHERO'S 4LIFE. Half of the Boston College men's basketball team is sick, possibly with E. coli, after eating Chipotle.
