    Last season was a bonanza for schools from outside the Power Five conferences. A record seven were ranked in the final AP Top 25. Can the so-called Group of Five carry that momentum into 2021? On the latest AP Top 25 College Football Podcast, Chris Vannini of The Athletic joins AP’s Ralph Russo to preview the non-Power Five leagues from the American Athletic Conference, where Cincinnati hopes to make a playoff push, to the Sun Belt, where Coastal Carolina and Louisiana bring back loaded teams. Then Pete Sampson of The Athletic joins the show to preview Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish have a new quarterback and new defensive coordinator. Standards are set high enough now for Brian Kelly’s program that even a step back from last year’s playoff team could mean double-digit victories. Plus, a tribute to Bobby Bowden. ___ Follow Ralph D.

    Pac-12 parity has been counterproductive for the conference in the College Football Playoff era. On the latest AP Top 25 College Football Podcast, Jon Wilner of the Bay Area News Group joins AP’s Ralph Russo to preview the football season in the West Coast’s Power Five conference. At a time when super teams such as Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Oklahoma are dominating conferences, the Pac-12 has been shut out of the CFP five times because it has no powerhouse program standing above the rest. Southern California enters another season of playing for coach Clay Helton’s job security. On the other side of Los Angeles, is this a make or break year for coach Chip Kelly? Oregon is the Pac-12 favorite, but the Ducks have quarterback questions. Can Washington contend with a stingy defense? Meanwhile, Arizona State enter the season with high expectations and an ongoing NCAA investigation. Plus, what’s new Pac-12 Commissioner George Kliavkoff’s move for dealing with conference realignment? ___ Follow Ralph D.

    Ohio State is favored to win a fifth straight Big Ten title and Michigan and Nebraska are trying to change their trajectories in critical seasons for their alumni coaches. On the AP Top 25 College Football Podcast this week, it’s a Big Ten preview with Dave Revsine of the BTN joining AP’s Ralph Russo. Who has the best chance to catch the Buckeyes? Maybe upstart Indiana? How about Penn State in a bounce-back season? Wisconsin and Iowa are the favorites in the West Division, but that always seems to produce a surprise contender or two. Meanwhile, former Michigan quarterback Jim Harbaugh took a pay cut and overhauled his staff heading into his seventh season as the Wolverines’ coach. At Nebraska, coach former Cornhuskers quarterback Scott Frost has a new boss and is looking for his first winning season in his fourth year as coach. Plus, a bonus episode of the podcast this week focuses solely on conference realignment. Andy Staples from The Athletic joins the show to talk about all the ramifications of Oklahoma and Texas moving to...
    CHICAGO (AP) — Infielder Eric Sogard and the Chicago Cubs have agreed to a minor league contract, a person familiar with the situation said on Wednesday.
