Manchester City Women’s defender Lucy Bronze is on course to become one of the best players in world ftball, according to England vice-captain Jordan Nobbs. Bronze added to her growing collection of individual honours last Friday, scping the Womens Super League 1 Player of the Season accolade at the FA Womens Ftball Awards at Wembley Stadium.A series of knee operations have hampered Bronzes progression but the former Liverpl defender has still managed to win the title in three of the last four seasons, emerging in recent years as one of England boss Mark Sampsons most important players. I dont think Lucy has reached her peak yet, Nobbs told Sky Sports. Bronze won a domestic double with Manchester City this season She was my rock at last years Womens World Cup, helping to keep my mentality strong when I was injured during the tournament.A lot of people dont know how much of a hard time she went through with injuries when she was younger but she kept on believing and I think shes shown that hard work pays off. Jordan Nobbs (R) was named Englands Player of the Year last week She deserved [all the acclaim for her performances in] that tournament and I think shell go on and become one of the best players in the world.Nobbs was also a winner last week after she was voted by fans as Vauxhalls 2016 England Player of the Year. Nobbs (R) celebrates with goal-scorer Bronze after her winner against Norway at the 2015 Womens World Cup And the Arsenal Ladies midfielder has vowed to put in the hard yards to elevate her game to another level ahead of next summers Womens Euros in the Netherlands.Mark Sampson and [Arsenal boss] Pedro Martinez Losa have really aided my development and hopefully they can keep learning how to push me to get the best out of me, Nobbs said.I think getting the England vice-captaincy has also really helped me and has given me a lot in terms of knowledge and experience. Nobbs says Pedro Martinez Losa has positively impacted her career Managers and coaches are very helpful but ultimately it comes down to you - and how much youre prepared to push yourself - to get to where you want.But I think there is more to come from me as a player, and hopefully at the Euros me and Lucy will be celebrating on the pitch together rather than on the sidelines.

Even in overtime, most of the elite teams in the College Ftball Playoff race followed the script in what was one of the less chaotic college ftball Saturdays this season. Each week, though, impacts how the 12 members of the selection committee will view each résumé to determine the first ranking on Nov. 1.Heres a lk at whose stock improved in Week 7, and whose dropped:STOCK UPWest Virginia: The Mountaineers were facing some skepticism after four straight home wins against unranked opponents, but went a long way in validating their position as a contender for the Big 12 title with an impressive road win at Texas Tech. The Mountaineers improved to 5-0 for the first time since 2012 and found a way to slow the Texas Tech offense. West Virginia held the Red Raiders to just 17 points -- their fewest in a game over the past two seasons -- and Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes failed to throw multiple passing touchdowns for the first time this season.Alabama: In their second straight road win over a ranked SEC team, the Tide somehow lked even better in their win over Tennessee. It was the most complete game theyve played to date, and this time the secondary showed improvement, adding to another outstanding overall defensive performance. Alabama held Tennessee to 163 yards, returned an interception for a TD, had three sacks and 10 tackles for loss, and stifled quarterback Joshua Dobbs.Big Ten West: Wisconsin was a highlight even in defeat, pushing No. 2 Ohio State to overtime, but the Badgers now need help to win the division as Nebraska is still undefeated. The Cornhuskers escaped a tricky Indiana team, but overall it was a gd day for the entire division. Minnesota won. Iowa won. Northwestern won. Even Illinois won. Every team in the division but Purdue and Wisconsin won this weekend.Group of 5: It was another gd weekend for both Boise State and Western Michigan, two teams that are still undefeated and in contention for a New Years Six Bowl as the highest-ranked Group of 5 conference champion. Western Michigan, ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 this week for the first time in schl history, beat Akron 41-0 and is the front-runner in the MAC. Boise State beat Colorado State and remains the team to beat in the Mountain West. Houston survived a scare from Tulsa, but still needs Navy to lose twice to win the AAC West Division.STOCK DOWNACC Coastal: Now that every team in the Coastal Division has at leasst two overall losses, the ACC and its fans should hope theres NOT an upset in the title game.dddddddddddd Its one thing to have a one-loss Virginia Tech or Miami run the table and upend the Tigers in the title game, but its another to have a two-loss league champ with a weak strength of schedule as the leagues top team. One week after beating North Carolina on the road, Virginia Tech lost to Syracuse on Saturday. Meanwhile, Miami followed its one-point loss to Florida State with a home loss to North Carolina. Wait, what? The Coastal chaos is in full swing, leaving the division up for grabs and without an elite team.SEC East: Much like the ACCs Coastal Division, the SEC should hope there isnt an upset in its conference title game, because its extremely likely the winner of the East will have two losses. Florida is the only team left in the division with just one overall loss, but the Gators still have to play at Arkansas and at LSU. Tennessee already has two losses, but the Vols own the head-to-head tiebreaker over Florida. Neither team lks capable of pulling of an epic upset in the SEC title game, but the entire East has fallen over the past two weeks along with Tennessee. And thats not even mentioning Georgia, which lost to Vandy.Clemson offense: The Tigers lost three fumbles in NC State territory, and quarterback Deshaun Watson threw the first pick-six of his career in what was a t-close-for-comfort win in Death Valley. Florida State in 2014 taught us that winning convincingly matters to a point (no pun intended). An undefeated ACC champ should be in, even if it hasnt dominated lesser opponents. But dont assume a perfect record means No. 1. Clemsons offense will have to be more efficient on Oct. 29, when it travels to Florida State -- if the Tigers want to finish undefeated, theyre going to have to stop turning the ball over. But an ugly win is still a gd win for Clemson, and its worth noting that even a loss in Tallahassee wont keep the Tigers out of the ACC championship game. Even a one-loss ACC champ would likely still get in the CFP.Ole Miss: The Rebels have officially been eliminated from the national spotlight. After losing to Florida State and Alabama, the Rebels were a long shot to win the SEC West, but they were clinging to hope -- until they lost to Arkansas. ' ' '
