(LRN) — The Saints appear to be heading towards another losing season as New Orleans played poorly in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions. The Black and Gold committed 10 penalties and Quarterback Drew Brees threw three interceptions. Detroit jumped out to a 10-0 lead, which did not please Coach Sean Payton. "Obviously we looked sluggish, it looked like we were coming off a short week," Payton said. The loss drops New Orleans record to 5-7.The Black and Gold are heading towards their fourth losing season in the last five. "We've been up and down, last week, came out and played well, this week, it was poor, poor start," Payton said. Payton also denied a report the Saints are interested in trading wide receiver Brandin Cooks during the offseason. "It's a false report, it's an agent picking up the phone, there's nothing to the report." New Orleans will visit Tampa Bay next Sunday.

UNDATED (AP)— It's undefeated and defending national champion Alabama against Washington in the Peach Bowl in College Football Playoff matchups. In the other national semifinal game on New Year's Eve, second-seeded Clemson plays Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl.

(LRN) — The 20th ranked LSU Tigers will get a chance to spend the final week of 2016 in sunny Florida where they'll play 13th ranked Louisville in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl on December 31st. It will be an early start on New Year's eve day as the game will kickoff at 11 AM eastern, 10 AM central time. The Bayou Bengals bring a 7-4 record to Orlando, while the Cardinals are 9-3. It will be an interesting match-up between the Tigers defense, which gave up the fourth-fewest points in the country against a Louisville offense that's led by a potential Heisman Trophy winner in quarterback Lamar Jackson. Jackson set an ACC record with touchdowns in a season as he threw 30 passing TDs and scored 21 times rushing the football. It will be the first ever meeting between Louisville and LSU on the football field. It will also be Coach Ed Orgeron's first game as the full-time head coach for the Tigers. The Tigers will make their fourth appearance in the Citrus Bowl. The last time they played in Orlando was in 2010 against Penn State in a game that was marred by poor field conditions, because of a heavy downpour.
