WATCH: Samford football player Deion Pierre pops the question in epic postgame proposal

This weekend’s best college football moment in the state of Alabama had nothing to do with the Alabama Crimson Tide or Auburn Tigers.

No, that title goes to the Samford Bulldogs.

Samford, which is a Birmingham-based FCS program that will play at Mississippi State on Oct. 29, took care of Virginia Military Institute 55-21 for its third consecutive victory on Saturday.

Former NFL player, Auburn defensive star Quentin Groves dead at 32

Former NFL defensive lineman and Auburn standout Quentin Groves, 32, died Saturday.

The cause of death has not been officially confirmed, though  according to SB Nation, Groves suffered a heart attack. During the 2008 NFL combine, he was diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which caused a rapid heartbeat. After a minor surgical procedure, Groves was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Groves spent two years at Jacksonville, and then played for several teams, including the Raiders, Browns and Titans. He last played in the regular season in 2014.

At Auburn, Groves was an All-SEC star, tying the school's career sack record at 26 and setting a single-game record with four sacks.

Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh names homecoming queen during recruiting trip

Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh kept busy during the Wolverines’ bye week — he announced the homecoming queen at a California high school game.

ESPN reported that Harbaugh was on a recruiting trip at Antioch High School to see highly recruited running back Najee Harris, who is committed to Alabama. 

Harbaugh attended Antioch’s homecoming game against Liberty High School, and school officials asked him to announce the homecoming queen at halftime, ESPN reported.

Harbaugh called the name of Tatiana Mendez as the crowd roared.

Harbaugh said he'd never been asked to handle the microphone during a recruiting visit.

"That was an all-time first for me," Harbaugh told ESPN. "That was really cool." 

Texas mascot Bevo sent flowers to LSU’s Mike the Tiger days before he died

UPDATE: LSU announced Tuesday that Mike the Tiger has died.

Read the original story below

If any school knows how much a mascot can mean to its team, it’s Texas. What are we without our trusty steer (and his tiny, adorable horns)?

That’s why young Bevo XV (and his Texas Silver Spurs handlers) didn’t hesitate to send LSU’s Mike the Tiger flowers after the recent news that the big cat’s cancerous tumor had resumed growth. The school announced in May that the tiger had been diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma.

The sweet note accompanying the bouquet, a picture of which was tweeted out and posted to the mascot’s Instagram account, promises to keep Mike in “our thoughts and prayers.”

Thank you, Bevo XV, for the flowers. #mascotssticktogether A photo posted by Mike VI, LSU's Live Mascot (@miketigervi) on Oct 7, 2016 at 12:21pm PDT

Unfortunately, things aren’t looking up for Mike. The school announced last week that it was prepared to euthanize the tiger when he begins to show signs of suffering. Tuesday he was removed from his public viewing pen and placed in hospice care.

According to Geaux 247, Mike is a “a 10-year old Siberian-Bengal mix male.” LSU won the 2007 BCS National Championship during his first year in the role.

With the loss of beloved Bevo XIV, who was found to have cancer in 2015, only a year behind us, the impending loss is felt by tigers and longhorns alike.
