🏈Eagles: ICYMI, the Eagles tied the NY Jets 31–31 in the Birds’ final preseason game on Friday. Most starters sat out to avoid unnecessary injury and to allow the coaches to watch backups perform before they make final roster decisions. Fingers crossed for Travis Fulgham.

  • Over the weekend, the Eagles traded for Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback (QB) Gardner Minshew, adding a third QB to the depth chart. The Birds were going to pick up another QB anyway, and getting one with starting experience is a bonus. Hot seat: Jalen Hurts

🎓College: Soccer, volleyball and field hockey have already kicked off their fall seasons, with more sports to come

  • ⚽️Penn State women’s soccer beat Hofstra 2–1 yesterday to improve their record to 3-0, and the men’s team opened with a draw with George Mason on Thursday before  winning over Syracuse yesterday.
  • 🏐The Nittany Lions’ No. 12-ranked women’s volleyball team is 2-1 after beating UCF 3–0 on Saturday, and 🏑field hockey earned their second straight win yesterday. WE ARE impressed.
