College Football Arrest Changes Texas Player's Future

Texas WR Buckner to transfer after arrest

Austin, TX (Sports Network) - University of Texas wide receiver Dan Buckner has decided to transfer in the wake of his arrest early Thursday morning.

According to the Austin Statesman, Buckner was arrested in College Station, Texas, following an argument with an ex-girlfriend in her apartment complex.

The paper cites an affidavit saying that Buckner was told to leave the apartment and the apartment complex itself by the local police department, and finally that he would be arrested if he did not leave.

Buckner was eventually taken into custody after allegedly telling one officer that they should take him to jail.

As a sophomore this past season, the Allen, Texas native posted 44 receptions for 445 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games.

Texas head football coach Mack Brown was quoted in the paper as saying Buckner and his family assured him of no wrongdoing, but that he and Buckner's family agreed a transfer was the best option going forward.

Petersen was selected by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association among a number of finalists, including Alabama's Nick Saban, who guided the Crimson Tide to a 14-0 season and the BCS national title.

Arizona at New Orleans Football Betting Preview

Arizona at New Orleans
Saturday, 4:30 pm Eastern – Fox

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs begins on Saturday with what is expected to be a high scoring game between the Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints. The Cardinals won the highest scoring playoff game in NFL betting history last week as they defeated Green Bay 51-45 in overtime. Arizona might need to score a lot of points again as they face the New Orleans Saints on Saturday since the Saints had the best offense in the NFL this season.

New Orleans is a 7-point favorite with a total of 57 at SBG Global.

It will be a matchup of great quarterbacks on Saturday as Kurt Warner leads the Cardinals while Drew Brees leads New Orleans. Warner threw for 379 yards and five touchdowns in last week’s win. Warner has had great success in the playoffs in this career as his teams are 9-3. The Cardinals will probably need Warner to have another big game against a New Orleans team that scored 45 points or more in four games this year. The Saints rested their starters in the last regular season game so they come into this game at pretty much full strength. "We know how to play at a high level offensively," Brees said. "The opportunity to get guys healthy - that was huge. We've been banged up at times throughout the season."

Arizona’s defense was awful last week and New Orleans didn’t play well defensively for much of the season as they were 25th in the league. The Saints could have difficulty slowing down Arizona’s passing attack and even their running game. Beanie Wells could have a field day against a Saints defense that allowed 166.3 yards per game on the on the ground over the last three weeks.

Arizona and New Orleans have never met in the NFL betting playoffs. The last time they met in the regular season was in December of 2007 as the Saints won 31-24 at the Superdome. The Cardinals are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 playoff games. The Cardinals are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Cardinals are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings against New Orleans.

The Saints are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Saints are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in January.

The Over is 5-1 in the Cardinals last 6 playoff games. The Under is 5-2 in the Cardinals last 7 road games. The Under is 4-0 in the Saints last 4 home games.
