1 “College Football Playoff National Championship: Oregon vs. Ohio State”

2 Arlington, TX - In a season defined by its resiliency, Ohio State (Buckeyes) wasn't about to let four turnovers stop it from winning the national championship. Ezekiel Elliott ran for 246 yards and four touchdowns, the defense limited the impact of those giveaways and the Buckeyes rolled to an impressive victory over Oregon (Ducks) in the first ever College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night. Running behind an offensive line that absolutely dominated the trenches, Elliott displayed vision and power on his way to his third straight 200-yard game. Third-string quarterback—by definition, not talent level— Cardale Jones was also thoroughly impressive. Making just his third career start, he tallied 242 passing yards, 38 rushing yards and two total touchdowns, leading the Buckeyes to 538 total yards. For the Ducks, Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns. The Ducks have little reason to hang their heads after this one, and even though they now likely face the unenviable task of replacing one of the most efficient signal-callers in college football history, they'll surely be back in playoff contention in 2015.

The New York City Police Department and other law enforcement personnel responded to a threat from ISIS after someone re-released a September 2014 message that tells followers to "rise up and kill intelligence officers, police officers, soldiers, and civilians." The threat named the United States, France, Australia and Canada as targets. In an internal memo, NYPD employees were told to "remain alert and consider tactics at all times while on patrol," especially in light of the attacks in France last week. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a similar bulletin to law enforcement across the country. That bulletin and the NYPD memo make it clear that this new message is consistent with previous threats that ISIS and others, including al Qaeda, have issued.
