Dallas 31, Tampa Bay 14.

In college football, coach Jim Harbaugh has officially stated he won’t throw his hat into the ring for the NFL and will return for his 9th season coaching Michigan. He said, I love the relationships that I have at Michigan -- coaches, staff, families, administration, President Santa Ono and especially the players and their families. My heart is at the University of Michigan. I once heard a wise man say, 'Don't try to out-happy, happy.' Go Blue!"
And, in a disappointment for Ohio State fans, two-time Heisman Trophy finalist C.J. Stroud announced he’ll declare for the NFL draft instead of returning to play another season for the Buckeyes.
