MINNEAPOLIS -- Yes, Brock Osweiler has a contract befitting a franchise player, but he joined the Houston Texans this year with only seven career starts. DeAndre Carter Jersey .Sam Bradford was once the first overall pick in the draft, but if the Minnesota Vikings finish with a winning record this season this will be the first time hes experienced that in his professional career.Quality quarterback performance has never been more important in the present-day NFL, but what has also become clear is that success is possible without one of the leagues established elite taking the snaps.Dominant defense, with reigning Super Bowl champion Denver as the prime exhibit, is a must have.Thats primarily why the Texans (3-1) and Vikings (4-0) are winning, and theyre not alone.Philadelphia (rookie Carson Wentz), New England (suspended Tom Brady), Denver (first-time starter Trevor Siemian), St. Louis (career fill-in Case Keenum) and Dallas (rookie Dak Prescott) also have aided less-than-ideal blueprints at quarterback this season with defenses that rank in the top 10 in points allowed.When you look at the Vikings defense, youre looking at a terrific defense, Osweiler said. We know the challenge we have going on the road.The Vikings will face one on Sunday as well. Even without superstar defensive end J.J. Watt, the Texans have been difficult to move the ball against.Theyre very sound. Very rarely does it look like guys are out of place, Bradford said. Theyre just playing really good football on that side right now.Here are some key angles to follow for the game:THE BLAIR WALSH PROJECT: Vikings kicker Blair Walsh ranks 28th in the NFL with a 72.7 percent field goal rate that wouldnt be as concerning if he hadnt had some struggles the past few years and the infamous miss of a 27-yard try at the end of the one-point loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs last season. Coach Mike Zimmer ominously replied not yet when asked this week whether the team would bring in any free agents to compete for the job.In addition to three failed field goals, Walsh has missed two extra points.That may cost us someday, special teams coordinator Mike Priefer said. So were hoping to rectify that situation and help him go out and make all his kicks.BROWNS BACK: The Texans should get a boost by the expected return of veteran left tackle Duane Brown. He missed the first four games this season while recovering from January surgery to repair a torn quadriceps muscle. Theres nobody more eager to have Brown back than Osweiler, who will work with Brown in a game for the first time on Sunday.I dont really foresee any challenges between Duane and myself, Osweiler said. Just all smiles there. Any time you get a player back like Duane, at quarterback theres nothing you can do but smile with that one.CLOWNEYS PROGRESS: Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is finally healthy and contributing for the Texans after failing to make an impact over his first two injury-filled seasons in the league. The first overall pick in the 2014 draft will start his fifth straight game on Sunday, which will be the first time in any of his NFL seasons that hes played that many in a row. Clowneys emergence has been well-timed with the loss of Watt, who had season-ending back surgery last week. Clowney had a sack and two hits on Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota in the previous game, and he has five sacks in his past eight regular-season games.VIKINGS VULNERABILITY: Clowney has played both end spots in Houstons 3-4 scheme since Watt has been out, so both Vikings tackles will need to be prepared to block the 6-foot-5, 270-pound product of South Carolina. T.J. Clemmings has taken over on Bradfords blind side on the left, with Matt Kalil likely out for the season following hip surgery. On the right side, Andre Smith left the previous game with an injury to his right arm. Jeremiah Sirles stepped in and will play again if Smith doesnt.Minnesotas offensive line has had its trouble, with only center Joe Berger the only starter in the same place as last season and the running game lagging at the bottom of the league with only 64.3 yards per game, but Bradfords quick release has helped with the pass protection. He wasnt sacked in the previous game.RARE VISIT: The Vikings have won all three matchups with the Texans, who entered the NFL in 2002 and have made only one prior regular-season visit to Minnesota. The Vikings beat Houston 28-21 at the Metrodome in 2008, behind three touchdown passes by Gus Frerotte and an end zone interception of Texans quarterback Sage Rosenfels.---Online:AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Halapoulivaati Vaitai Jersey .

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Andrew Donnal Jersey . -- Arike Ogunbowale provided the offense and her Notre Dame teammates provided the defense as the Fighting Irish played as the No. 1 team for the first time in 15 years and looked the part in a 107-47 victory over Central Michigan in the first round of the Preseason WNIT on Friday night.Ogunbowale scored a career-high 30 points on 12-of-13 shooting, including making all five 3-point attempts.I think Arike was in a zone tonight -- not on defense -- but offensively it was definitely an outstanding game, especially from the 3-point line, Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said.Ogunbowale, who made only 18 3-pointers as a freshman last season, said she had focused on improving her shot from the outside.Freshman year they sagged off on me a lot so I knew this year they would probably start it. So now they have to play me fair, she said. They have to guard me on the 3 and guard me driving so its harder for them.Central coach Sue Guevara said she was surprised by Ogunbowales outside shooting.Shes really worked on the 3-ball. Because we know thats shes a Mack truck that can get to the basket and pull up. But boy, hitting that 3, she said.The Irish scored the first 15 points, hitting 6-of-7 shots while the Chippewas were 0-of-4 with two turnovers and no rebounds. The Irish made 76 percent of their shots in the first quarter to open a 35-9 lead. They extended the lead to 56-20 at halftime and 81-28 at the end of the third quarter.Marina Mabrey, who came off the bench because McGraw said she lacked focus before the game, added 17 points for the Irish and Lindsay Allen had 13 points and eight assists. The Irish outscored the Chippewas 46-16 inside and Notre Dames reserves outscored Centrals bench 39-17.Aleah Swary led Central with a career-high 15 points.BIG PICTURECentral Michigan: The Chippewas were overmatched in their first game against a top-ranked team even though league coaches picked them to win the Mid-American Conference with four returning starters from last years team that finished 22-11.Notre Dame: The Irish, who won by an average of 29 points against non-conference opponents during the regular season last year, had little trouble in winning their 21st straight season-opener.POLL IMPLICATIONS: The Irish should be able to hang onto their top ranking following a dominant performance.TIP-INS: Notre Dame had 13 made baskets in the first quarter. The Chippewas had 13 shot attempts. ... Central missed its first five free throws. ... Chippewas starter Jewel Cotton had two fouls in the first three minutes and another starter, Presley Hudson, had two in less than five minutes. The Chippewas dropped to 1-5 all-time against the Irish, with the lone 72-69 win coming 33 years ago.SHE SAID IT:We couldnt do anything. Theyre bigger, theyre more physical, they outweigh us, Guevara said. Their guard play was way too much for us. Way too much.INJURIES:The Irish were without standout freshman Jackie Young, who is out indefinitely with an injured right thumb sustained last week in an exhibition game.UP NEXTCentral Michigan: Central has to wait to see who it will face in the second round. The Chippewas will play their home-opener against Oakland on Nov. 22.Notre Dame: The Irish will play another three games at home in the tournament if they keep winning, starting with Fordham on Monday. Quandre Diggs Jersey . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. T.J. Lang Jersey . The deal is pending a physical, assistant general manager Bobby Evans said. Traded from Seattle to Baltimore on Aug. 30, Morse also can play first base and right field to give manager Bruce Bochy some flexibility in writing his lineup. http://www.cheaplionsjerseyssale.com/?tag=ezekiel-ansah-jersey-sale . Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a 97-78-20 record over two-plus seasons. He was dismissed by the team last March after the Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1 record. To fully appreciate Tamika Catchings impact on the U.S. Olympic team in this, her fourth and final appearance in the Summer Games, we need to go back to her first. That was in August 2004 in Athens, Greece, and Catchings had turned 25 the month before.She was just entering a professional athletes peak years. In her third season in the WNBA, she already was one of the top players in the league and the face of the Indiana Fever.And she was part of a new wave of national team players, which included Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi. Catchings had started for the Americans in the 2002 world championship, and she got the call to do so again in the 2004 Olympics.My biggest role with that team was defense, Catchings recalled. I was trying to bridge the gap between the younger players and the older players, with them passing that torch on to our generation.In Athens, U.S. coach Van Chancellor started Catchings alongside more experienced players Dawn Staley, Sheryl Swoopes, Lisa Leslie and Tina Thompson.To be the fifth Beatle in that group? Taurasi said. She was the only one who could go into that group and hold her own. She kind of represented the younger generation. So when I saw her out there with that group, I thought, Catch is going to be legendary.It also helped inspire Taurasi, who averaged 8.5 points off the bench in the 2004 Olympics, and Bird, who was the point guard understudy to Staley, then playing in her final Olympics.Bird recalls national team scrimmages over the years when her primary concern was whether she and Catchings were on the same side.I just always remember thinking, I hope Tamikas on my team, Bird said. Because we would do drills where you could only score if you got the rebound, or if you get a deflection or have a steal. And in those scenarios, theres nobody you want on your team besides Tamika.Catchings has been a staple of the national team, winning three Olympic gold medals and three world championship golds. Now age 37, she represents the older generation, and will retire from her playing career at the conclusion of this WNBA season. But she has been able to keep this final year of playing in the present tense as much as possible.Ive definitely been able to stay in the moment and not take anything for granted, she said. Im grateful to have this opportunity again and be around all these great players.Its been a dream come true. And this year, it just means a lot more with it being my last time to be able to represent my country from this perspective.Catchings said it wasnt until she was a teenager following the news about the U.S. national teams 1995-96 tour to prepare for the Atlanta Games that she truly understood just how important the Olympics were. In the summer of 1996, when she was a rising senior in high school, Catchings was training in Colorado Springs with USA Basketball for the junior world championship qualifying tournament.After practice was over, they said, Hang tight, guys, weve got a surprise for you all, Catchings said. Brandon Powell Jersey. . Then the door at the end of the gym opened, and Ruthie [Bolton] walked in with everybody else on the Olympic team, and they started singing, Mighty Ruthie! And we were like, Oh my God!It was like the greatest moment. I was like, I want to be them. I want to be on that team someday.Catchings joined the senior national team in 2002. That was her first year in the WNBA. She had sat out 2001 in the league due to a knee injury that had ended her Tennessee collegiate career.As is the case for Bird and Taurasi, Catchings only loss with the Team USA came in the 2006 world championship semifinals. Other than that, it has been an overwhelmingly golden success.The thing that players like Sheryl, Lisa and Dawn left with us is how to represent yourself every day as an American, as an ambassador for ourselves, individually, and our team, Catchings said. People are always watching us, whether its playing in the WNBA, overseas, or working with our respective charities. But theres something especially important about representing the USA team, and how we act on a daily basis. That is about being a professional.Catchings averaged 6.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in the 2004 Olympics. In 2008, she battled injury to be ready for the Beijing Games, and came off the bench to average 6.8 points and 4.4 rebounds.With Catchings, you knew she was going to go through a wall to get the job done, said Anne Donovan, coach of the 2008 Olympic team and a former Olympic player herself. Whether that was a rebound we had to get, a play we needed to run, a screen she had to set, it didnt matter. She was going to do whatever was needed.Her work ethic and her pride in wearing red, white and blue ... Its hard to put it into words, but we all know it. We see it. Catchings is the one whos going to come up with that loose ball or make that play when someone else thinks its impossible.For Catchings, 2012 was the most special year of all in her pro career. She again was a starter for the U.S. Olympic team, averaging 6.1 points and 4.9 rebounds at the London Games. Then she went back to Indiana and led the Fever to the WNBA title.This year, Catchings has been doing a farewell tour in the WNBA, and she also has dealt with a heavy heart in saying goodbye to her beloved college coach, Pat Summitt, who died in June. The court, always her sanctuary, has been that again for Catchings. The chance to create another happy Olympic memory is something that she cherishes.This is her fourth time, and shes still good enough to be a contributor, said USA Basketball coach Geno Auriemma, who also coached Catchings in the 2012 Olympics. When you mention Tamika and say what is she great at? She just plays harder than everybody else. She competes harder. Ive always admired that in her.

Dylan Hartleys suitability to lead the British and Irish Lions has been questioned by Brian ODriscoll as the England captain waits to discover the damage caused to his career by yet another major disciplinary lapse. Mark McGwire Jersey .Hartley will learn in midweek the repercussions of the red card issued by referee Jerome Garces for a swinging arm on Sean OBrien in Northamptons Champions Cup defeat by Leinster at Franklins Gardens on Friday night.The hooker, a second-half replacement, had only been on the pitch for six minutes when he struck OBriens head from behind with his right arm, ending the concussed Ireland flankers evening.It is the third red card of his career and Garces decision was endorsed by Northampton director of rugby Jim Mallinder and captain Tom Wood.An appalling disciplinary record comprising of 54 weeks worth of suspensions for offences including biting, gouging and butting guarantees a bleak outcome when a independent hearing is convened next week - most likely on Wednesday - to impose a sanction.His participation in the early stages of the RBS 6 Nations is now in grave doubt and ODriscoll suggests his credentials to lead the Lions in New Zealand next summer - Hartley was a leading contender for the post - are in ruins.Mindless from Hartley. Lions Captain???! tweeted ODriscoll, who skippered the tourists against the All Blacks 11 years ago.Anyone actually questioning the Hartley red card look at his reaction to it. Not a murmur of complaint from him. He knew what was coming.Hartley has led England with distinction this year, presiding over an unblemished run of 13 victories, but a season marred by a lengthy lay-off to heal a back injury now faces another interruption.It is unclear at this stage whether he will be punished for striking or for a dangerous tackle, with the former deemed a less serious offence but still carrying a top end sanction of eight plus weeks.The suspension will surely be extended when his extensive previous misdemeanours are considered and will be delivered against the backdrop of World Rugbys crackdown on dangerous play involving the head and neck.England head coach Eddie Jones, watching from the stands at Franklins Gardens, reacted to the replays by running his left hand down his face and the red card has left him with a headache ahead of the visit of France to Twickenham on February 4. Kendall Graveman Jersey . Hargreaves began his career in 2008 with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and has played with the Edmonton Eskimos and last season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Jose Canseco Jersey . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. http://www.athleticsrookiestore.com/Athletics-Joe-Morgan-Kids-Jersey/ . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. Bob Stoops was a young defensive assistant when he joined new Kansas State head coach Bill Snyders staff way back in 1989.Just winning a game was a big deal then for the Wildcats, who were coming off consecutive winless seasons and decades of mostly losing records.There are now 388 career victories between Snyder, who just won his 200th game last weekend, and Stoops, who has 188 wins in 18 seasons as Oklahomas coach. And they arent the only Big 12 coaches who are the winningest coaches at their schools.Kansas State finishes Snyders 25th regular season Saturday at TCU, where winningest coach Gary Patterson will set the school record with his 202nd game coached while going for his 150th victory.Stoops and the Sooners claim their 10th Big 12 title if they win the Bedlam rivalry game against Oklahoma State and Mike Gundy, the former Cowboys quarterback who with 103 wins is his alma maters winningest coach.Well, first reaction is no, Stoops said, when asked if he initially imagined Snyder winning 200 games at K-State. But, you know, with coach Snyder, yes. Ive spoken a lot about how determined and how successful I thought we would be when we arrived there. ... Hes that good, and hes that determined to get it done, and hes the kind of guy, loyal too, to be there that long.Stoops was part of Snyders first 46 victories at Kansas State, then left for three seasons and two national championships as Floridas defensive coordinator before taking over as Oklahomas coach in 1999 -- and winning a national title there in 2000.More on the Big 12s winningest coaches:BILL SNYDER, Kansas State (1989-2005, 2009-present).Record: 200-105-1.Highlights with Wildcats: After one bowl in K-States first eight decades playing football, went to the Copper Bowl in 1993, Snyders fifth season. That was first of 11 consecutive bowl appearances for K-State, which this year goes to its 19th bowl under the 77-year-old Snyder. K-State won 2003 Big 12 championship game, and shared 2012 league title with Oklahoma. Snyder has 64 wins in last eight seasons since his three-year retirement.Before being head coach: Hayden Frys offensive coordinator from 1979-88 after two seasons on his staff at North Texas.BOB STOOPS, OKLAHOMA (1999-present)Record: 188-48.Highlights with Sooners: Won record nine Big 12 titles, and only team in league history to win three in a row (2006-08). Oklahoma won national championship in 2000, and was national runner-up in 2003, 2004 and 2008 seasons. Only coach in BCS era to win the Rose, Orange, Fiesta and Sugar Bowls. Never missed bowl at Oklahoma. Coaached two Heisman Trophy winners (Jason White and Sam Bradford). Rollie Fingers Jersey. Before being head coach: Grad assistant at Iowa, his alma mater, then assistant there and Kent State before K-State and Florida.GARY PATTERSON, TCU (2000-present)Record: 149-52.Highlights with Horned Frogs: A 13-0 season in 2010, capped by Rose Bowl victory and No. 2 final ranking in AP poll. Part of three consecutive seasons undefeated in Mountain West Conference play before moving to Big 12 in 2012, the year he became schools winningest coach. Shared 2014 Big 12 title with Baylor. Currently tied for most games coached with Dutch Meyer, coach of TCUs only AP national champion team in 1938 led by Heisman winner Davey OBrien.Before being head coach: Grad assistant at K-State, his alma mater, which was pre-Snyder. Coaching stints at eight other schools. Defensive coordinator at TCU for three seasons before Dennis Franchione left for Alabama.MIKE GUNDY, OKLAHOMA STATE (2005-present)Record: 103-49.Highlights with Cowboys: Won 2011 Big 12 title, and will finish no worse than second for third time in four years this season. Have been AP Top 10 team seven of last nine seasons. Team this season will go to 11th consecutive bowl game, longest streak in school history.Before being head coach: Starting QB for 3 1/2 seasons at Oklahoma State. Was Cowboys assistant from 1990-95, then left for a season at Baylor and four at Maryland before returning to Stillwater in 2001.NOT MANY LIKE THEMThe only active coaches from Power Five conference teams outside that Big 12 quartet who are their schools winningest coaches are Northwesterns Pat Fitzgerald (76 wins) and Louisvilles Bobby Petrino (67). For the record, Nick Sabans 117 wins in 10 seasons at Alabama are still 115 shy of Bear Bryant.LONG TENURESSnyder, Stoops and Patterson are 1-2-3 among active FBS coaches for wins at their current schools, with Iowas Kirk Ferentz (135) and Saban the only non-Big 12 coaches with more than Gundy, who in his 12th season is tied with Utahs Kyle Whittingham.The average tenure for the current Big 12 coaches is 5.75 years, and that includes Tom Herman being at Texas less than a week since Charlie Strong was fired.

Pressure makes some college football coaches do the craziest things. Lynn Swann Jersey .It makes them scream at officials or give their assistants ass-chewings in front of millions of people. It causes them to rotate three quarterbacks in one game or go for a two-point conversion after every touchdown.In one incident this past weekend, the pressure might even have caused one FBS coach to inadvertently like a tweet that suggested he should fire his current defensive coordinator. Notre Dames Brian Kelly told reporters that a staff member who manages his Twitter account mistakenly liked a fans tweet suggestion that he fire embattled defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder.I have a number of people that manage my Twitter account, Kelly said during a Sunday teleconference. Just obviously, going through it, somebody unfortunately made a mistake as they were scrolling through, inadvertently hit it, and just a mistake, an unfortunate mistake that was made by one of my staff members.VanGorder is under intense scrutiny after the Fighting Irishs 1-2 start. The Irish currently rank near the bottom among 128 FBS teams in nearly every defensive statistic. Theyre 99th in run defense (198.7 yards), 102nd in total defense (439.3 yards), 103rd in pass-efficiency defense (145.38 rating) and tied for 94th in scoring defense (32 points per game).After losing 36-28 to Michigan State on Saturday, the Fighting Irish are among the 10 teams that were axed from consideration for one of the four spots in the College Football Playoff by The Eliminator. Through three weeks of the 2016 season, The Eliminator has eliminated 66 teams from playoff consideration, which is more than half the 128-team FBS field.Heres where FBS stands after Week 3:Jump to sections: Whos in??| Still in contention | On the fence | Better luck next season | Previously eliminatedWhos in?During another unpredictable weekend, we saw seven ranked teams lose, including No. 2 Florida State, which fell 63-20 at Louisville. As a result, the Cardinals are replacing the Seminoles as the No. 3 seed in our four-team CFP field. No. 1 seed Alabama had to rally from a 21-point deficit to win 48-43 at Ole Miss. Ohio State moves up to the No. 2 seed after winning 45-24 at Oklahoma, and Michigan joins the field as the No. 4 seed after beating Colorado 45-28 at the Big House. For now, Clemson, Houston and Stanford are on the outside looking in, but were only one-quarter of the way through the season.Still in contentionAlabama Crimson TideTrending: UPNotre Dames Brian Kelly wasnt the only one who had Twitter problems this week. Chris Harrison, host of The Bachelor, prematurely tweeted about the Crimson Tides demise, a tweet that has since been deleted. After Alabama fell behind Ole Miss 24-3, Harrison tweeted: Why is it so enjoyable to watch Saban lose? Looks like new blood in college football. There goes any chance of getting Lane Kiffin on the show.Arkansas RazorbacksTrending: EVENIf Texas A&M beats Arkansas in overtime for the third straight time on Saturday at Jerry World, Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin might want to skip the postgame handshake. Hogs coach Bret Bielema joked this summer that Sumlin told him he didnt know what to say after last seasons 28-21 win in overtime. Bielemas response: Dont say anything. I might punch you.Baylor BearsTrending: EVENWho screwed up Baylors schedule? Someone managed to squeeze a legitimate opponent, Oklahoma State, into the first six games. The Bears feasted on FCS foe Northwestern State, SMU and Rice, and after hosting the Pokes, theyll play Iowa State and Kansas.Clemson TigersTrending: EVENThe Tigers play at Georgia Tech on Thursday, nearly two years after quarterback Deshaun Watson injured his left knee in the first quarter of a 28-6 loss to the Yellow Jackets. I dont have to remind Clemson fans what happened next.Florida GatorsTrending: EVENUnlike ESPNs George Whitfield, Im not much of a quarterback guru. So I can only assume that it isnt a good sign that two SEC teams are starting quarterbacks who couldnt keep the starting job at Purdue. After losing Luke Del Rio to a knee injury, the Gators are expected to start graduate transfer Austin Appleby?on Saturday at Tennessee. Former Purdue quarterback Danny Etling is starting for LSU.Georgia BulldogsTrending: EVENDid you see the video of the excited Georgia fan who ran through his house throwing things after freshman quarterback Jacob Eason threw the game-winning touchdown on fourth down with 1:31 left to win 28-27 at Missouri? He was having fun until he smashed into a door. Its kind of how Nick Chubb looks running behind UGAs offensive line.Houston CougarsTrending: UPHoustons goal between now and a Nov. 17 showdown against No. 3 Louisville? Stay healthy. According to ESPNs Football Power Index, the Cougars have a 70.5 percent or better chance of winning each of their next seven games. But FPI gives Houston only a 20.6 percent chance of upsetting the Cardinals.Louisville CardinalsTrending: UPNo, we still dont have to like Louisvilles Bobby Petrino. But after the Cardinals crushed then-No. 2 Florida State 63-20 on Saturday, we have to admit that the guy can flat-out coach. FPI gives Louisville the best chance (27 percent) among FBS teams of entering its bowl game undefeated.Miami HurricanesTrending: UPAfter a 3-0 start, the Hurricanes get a week off before playing at Georgia Tech on Oct. 1. The Yellow Jackets better hope first-year coach Mark Richt left his game plan for beating them back in Athens, Georgia.Michigan WolverinesTrending: EVENMichigan do-everything junior Jabrill Peppers has emerged as a legitimate Heisman Trophy contender after totaling nine tackles, one sack, 3.5 tackles for loss, 208 all-purpose yards and a touchdown in the Wolverines 45-28 win over Colorado. At least Tennessee fans wont have to worry about Peppers stealing the Heisman from their quarterback this year.Michigan State SpartansTrending: UPThe Spartans are a gamblers dream. Michigan State closed as a 7-point underdog at Notre Dame on Saturday and won the game 36-28. It was the third time in the past two seasons that MSU won as an underdog of seven or more points. Since 2013, the Spartans are 7-3 in their past 10 games as underdogs.Nebraska CornhuskersTrending: UPStick this nugget in the I told you so file (which isnt very thick): Nebraska is going to be 7-0 going into its Oct. 29 trip to No. 11 Wisconsin. After beating No. 22 Oregon 35-32 at home, the Cornhuskers play Northwestern (road), Illinois (home), Indiana (road) and Purdue (home) in the next four games.Ohio State BuckeyesTrending: UPAfter dismantling Oklahoma 45-24 on Saturday, the Buckeyes are 19-0 on the road under coach Urban Meyer. Its the second-longest such winning streak to start a tenure in college football history. Yales Walter Camp won 25 straight road games from 1888-92, according to ESPN Stats & Information.Stanford CardinalTrending: UPThe Cardinal look like the team to beat in the Pac-12 North, but they will have to survive consecutive road trips to UCLA on Saturday and No. 9 Washington on Sept. 30 to stay on top.Texas A&M AggiesTrending: UPAfter beating Auburn 29-16 on the road on Saturday, the Aggies are 3-0 for the third straight season. Each of the past two seasons, they went 5-5 the rest of the way.Tennessee VolunteersTrending: DOWNHeres how long it has been since Tennessee beat Florida: Lyndon B. Johnson was in the White House, and man hadnt walked on the moon. OK, Im exaggerating. It has been only 4,385 days (or 12 years and two days) since the Volunteers beat the Gators, but whos counting?Washington HuskiesTrending: UPWelcome to the 2016 season, Huskies. After playing Rutgers, Idaho and FCS foe Portland State, Washington hits the road this week at Arizona. Then the Huskies host No. 7 Stanford and play at Oregon. Well finally start to figure out if theyre legit.Wisconsin BadgersTrending: DOWNThis isnt a good time for Wisconsin to have a quarterback controversy. After narrowly defeating Georgia State 23-17, the Badgers play their next five games against five of the Big Tens best: No. 8 Michigan State (road), No. 4 Michigan (road), No. 2 Ohio State (home), Iowa (road) and No. 20 Nebraska (home).On the fenceAir Force FalconsTrending: UPWho said fullbacks dont matter anymore? The Falcons are 13-1 over the past three seasons when their fullbacks combine for 100 or more rushing yards.Arizona WildcatsTrending: UPWere about to find out if Arizona is even a bowl team. After beating Hawaii 47-28, here are the Wildcats next five games: No. 9 Washington (home), UCLA (road), No. 24 Utah (road), USC (home) and No. 7 Stanford (home). Ouch.Arizona State Sun DevilsTrending: DOWNThe Sun Devils were lucky to escape San Antonio with a 32-28 win over UTSA. If you didnt notice, thats fewer than half as many points as Arizona State scored against Texas Tech a week earlier.Army Black KnightsTrending: UPThe Black Knights are The Eliminators Team of the Week after they blasted UTEP 66-14 on the road Saturday, less than a week after Army cornerback Brandon Jackson was killed in a car wreck. Armys coaches and players attended his funeral Monday in Queens, New York.Auburn TigersTrending: DOWNMaybe the Tigers should try playing without a quarterback? Its worth a shot.Boise State BroncosTrending: EVENWho doesnt think Mountain West Conference commissioner Craig Thompson dreams of having undefeated Boise State and San Diego State play in the MWC championship game? The Broncos had a week off after beating Washington State 31-28 on Sept. 10. Theyll try to go 2-0 against the Pac-12 North on Saturday at Oregon State.Central Michigan ChippewasTrending: UPThe Chippewas will have a chance to knock off two Power 5 teams this season -- yeah, were still counting the Oklahoma State win -- when they play Saturday at Virginia.Cincinnati BearcatsTrending: DOWNHouston just ran back another pick-six.Colorado BuffaloesTrending: UPThe Buffaloes are probably wondering what might have happened if quarterback Sefo Liufau?hadnt injured his ankle after throwing his third touchdown early in the third quarter of a 45-28 loss at Michigan. Either way, the Buffaloes are definitely headed in the right direction.East Carolina PiratesTrending: DOWNThe Pirates fell 20-15 on Saturday at South Carolina. The good news: They get to play another ACC team this week.Florida State SeminolesTrending: DOWNThe Seminoles are more than capable of pulling things back together and winning the rest of their games. However, after what we saw from them at Louisville, theyre also more than capable of losing Saturday at South Florida.Georgia Southern EaglesTrending: UPCongrats, Eagles. Youre the lone survivor from the Sun Belt Conference. Will you still be here after Saturdays trip to Western Michigan?Georgia Tech Yellow JacketsTrending: UPKeep an eye on Georgia Techs home game against Clemson on Thursday. The Tigers have lost their past five games in Atlanta and havent won there since 2003. Unranked Tech teams upset ranked Clemson squads three times in that stretch, including a 31-17 win over the No. 5 Tigers in 2011.Indiana HoosiersTrending: EVENThe Hoosiers had an extra week to prepare for their nonconference finale against Wake Forest. No, this isnt basketball.Iowa HawkeyesTrending: DOWNI could tell you how much Iowa paid Kirk Ferentz to lose to North Dakota State 23-21 on Saturday. But if you really want to know, you can find it in about 1 million tweets.Kansas State WildcatsTrending: EVENThe Wildcats had an extra week to prepare after falling at Stanford in their opener, and they responded with a 63-7 win over Florida Atlantic. Theyll host another cupcake, FCS foe Missouri State, before starting Big 12 play.LSU TigersTrending: UPThe Tigers play at Auburn on Saturday, which might be the earliest Hot Seat Bowl in the modern era of the sport.Maryland TerrapinsTrending: UPSure, the Terrapins needed double overtime to beat UCF 30-24 on the road. But theyll have a chance to improve to 4-0 if they defeat Purdue on Oct. 1, which would be a nice start for first-year coach DJ Durkin.Memphis TigersTrending: EVENTake that, Big 12. After being snubbed in potential Big 12 expansion, the Tigers blew out Kansas 43-7 on Saturday. If only it had been a relegation game.Minnesota Golden GophersTrending: UPThe Gophers had a week off before Saturdays nonconference finale against Colorado State. They needed overtime to beat the Rams 23-20 on the road last season.Navy MidshipmenTrending: EVENNavy quarterback Will Worth is getting pretty good at late-game heroics. A week after scoring a late touchdown to beat Connecticut, he scored on a 1-yard touchdown with 2:57 left in a 21-14 win at Tulane.North Carolina Tar HeelsTrending: EVENHeels quarterback Mitch Trubisky set two school records in a 56-28 win over James Madison. He completed 18 passes in a row and has now thrown 156 consecutive passes without an interception.Oklahoma SoonersTrending: DOWNYes, the Sooners playoff chances are on life support, if not entirely flat-lined, after they fell to 1-2 with their loss to Ohio State. But, come on, somebody has to win the Big 12, right?Oklahoma State CowboysTrending: UPIt wont be the Big 12 if Oklahoma States controversial 30-27 loss to Central Michigan doesnt come into the equation at seasons end. If the Pokes can win at No. 16 Baylor on Saturday, it might become even more of a storyline.Ole Miss RebelsTrending: DOWNYes, Ole Miss is 1-2 after blowing at least 21-point leads in losses to Florida State and Alabama. But the Rebels have dropped only one SEC game and still have a chance to play in the SEC championship game, so well leave them in contention for now.Oregon DucksTrending: DOWNI dont have a calculator handy, but I think my math is correct. The Ducks lost at Nebraska 35-32. The Ducks went 1-for-5 on two-point conversion attempts, which means they left at least four points on the field (if they wouldve made four extra point attempts). If Oregon had kicked extra points after each of its five touchdowns, the game would have gone to overtime.Oregon State BeaversTrending: UPWelcome back to the win column. The Beavers ended a 10-game losing streak by beating FCS foe Idaho State 37-7 on Saturday. They host Boise State on Saturday.Penn State Nittany LionsTrending: EVENNo, the Nittany Lions didnt beat Pitt. But at least they didnt lose to Temple again.Pittsburgh PanthersTrending: DOWNFrom the Thought youd never see this file: Penn State and Oklahoma State combined for 84 points and 1,046 yards of offense against a Pat Narduzzi-coached defense the past two games.Rutgers Scarlet KnightsTrending: UPYes, I checked my notes again. The Scarlet Knights havent yet been eliminated. Give them credit for rallying back from a 21-0 deficit, even if it was against New Mexico.San Diego State AztecsTrending: UPThe Aztecs won 42-28 at Northern Illinois on Saturday for their 13th consecutive victory, which is the second-longest active winning streak in FBS, behind only Alabamas 15. Its San Diego States longest winning streak since it won 21 straight games under coach Don Coryell from 1968-70.South Carolina GamecocksTrending: UPAfter surprising East Carolina, South Carolina plays Saturday at Kentucky. If the Gamecocks win and then beat UMass on Oct. 22 and FCS foe Western Carolina on Nov. 19, theyll have to win only one other game to finish 6-6. That means Darius Rucker is playing for free in Columbia, South Carolina.South Florida BullsTrending: UPThe Bulls staged the second-biggest comeback in school history in last weeks 45-20 win at Syracuse. They trailed 17-0 in the first quarter, then scored 28 straight points in the second quarter en route to a 45-20 victory.TCU Horned FrogsTrending: EVENThe Horned Frogs bounced back with a 41-20 win over Iowa State, but it was costly. Top receiver and return specialist KaVontae Turpin suffered a knee injury, and it isnt yet known how long hell be sidelined.Texas LonghornsTrending: DOWNAfter allowing 507 yards of offense in a 50-43 loss at California, Texas coach Charlie Strong said hell use the week off to evaluate his coaching staff. Translation: Strong is probably going to be calling the defense from now on.Texas Tech Red RaidersTrending: EVENThe Red Raiders had 666 yards of offense and beat Louisiana Tech by only 14 points. Thats a sign of ... a really bad defense.Toledo RocketsTrending: UPOh, where have you gone, Pat Hill? The Rockets led Fresno State 24-0 at the half and 38-0 in the third quarter before rolling to a 52-17 victory. The Rockets beat their first three opponents by a combined score of 128-30.UCLA BruinsTrending: UPAfter getting run over in the first two games, UCLAs defense finally bowed up in a 17-14 win at BYU. The Cougars had only 23 rushing yards and 273 yards overall, 91 of which came on their final possession. UCLAs defense will have to play as well in Saturdays Pac-12 opener against Stanford.USC TrojansTrending: UPSee Ole Miss. I know its the longest of long shots, but even pigs can fly in Hollywood.Utah UtesTrending: EVENHonk if you sacked a San Jose State quarterback on Saturday. The Utes had 10 sacks and scored 17 points off three turnovers in a 34-17 win over the Spartans.Virginia Tech HokiesTrending: UPJuco transfer Jerod Evans tied a school record with five touchdown passes in a 49-0 win over Boston College, which had the No. 1 defense in FBS in 2015. It was the Hokies most lopsided win since they beat Maryland 55-6 in 2004.Wake Forest Demon DeaconsTrending: UPThe Demon Deacons matched their victory total from 2015 by improving to 3-0 after a 38-21 win over FCS foe Delaware. But quarterback Kendall Hinton will miss two to four weeks because of a sprained knee.Western Michigan BroncosTrending: UPIf the Broncos beat Northern Illinois on Oct. 8, were going to declare them Illinois state champs. Yes, Im including the Bears.West Virginia MountaineersTrending: EVENAfter getting a week off, the Mountaineers play BYU on Saturday at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. This isnt your daddys BYU. The Cougars rank 78th in passing with only two touchdown passes in three games, which is 12 fewer than what Texas Techs Patrick Mahomes has thrown.Better luck next seasonBoston College EaglesTrending: DOWNEagles coach Steve Addazio might be firmly on the hot seat after losing 49-0 at Virginia Tech on Saturday. It was the Eagles worst loss since a 54-0 defeat against Ole Miss on Oct. 7, 1950. BCs offense had six first downs, 80 passing yards and 44 rushing yards.Duke Blue DevilsTrending: DOWNDuke coach David Cutcliffe probably knew it was going to be a rebuilding year, but he has to feel good about freshman quarterback Daniel Jones. The Charlotte native threw 96 pass attempts with only two interceptions?the past two games.Illinois Fighting IlliniTrending: DOWNFirst-year Illinois coach Lovie Smith wants the Illini to be a more physical team. They ran for 3 yards on 15 carries in a 34-10 loss to Western Michigan. Obviously, Smith has a long way to go.Marshall Thundering HerdTrending: DOWNAkron walloped the Thundering Herd 65-38 on the road Saturday. Zips coach Terry Bowden has quietly done a fantastic job of building his team into a MAC East title contender, not that that makes Marshall feel any better.Missouri TigersTrending: DOWNThats right, Tigers. Georgia has the better football team and journalism school.Notre Dame Fighting IrishTrending: DOWNSure, the Fighting Irish might win the rest of their games and finish 10-2, which might be enough to earn a trip to a New Years Six bowl game. But without an opportunity to win a conference championship and with only two ranked teams left on the schedule (No. 7 Stanford and No. 15 Miami), Notre Dame wont be making the playoff.Southern Mississippi Golden EaglesTrending: DOWNDespite committing 15 penalties and turning the ball over three times against Troy on Saturday, Southern Miss had a chance to tie the game on the final play. But quarterback Nick Mullens pass into the end zone was knocked away, and the Trojans escaped with a 37-31 win.Syracuse OrangeTrending: DOWNThe Orange piled up 549 yards of offense, held the ball for nearly 38 minutes and somehow lost to South Florida by 25 points. Thats what 10 penalties and three turnovers will do.Texas State BobcatsTrending: DOWNAfter being routed 42-3 at Arkansas on Saturday, the Bobcats host No. 6 Houston this week in San Marcos. In the 2012 opener, Texas State stunned the Cougars 30-13 in its FBS debut. Texas State alumnus George Strait should have written a song about it.Vanderbilt CommodoresTrending: DOWNVanderbilt has been patient with third-year coach Derek Mason, but his teams offensive woes might be too much to overlook. The Commodores scored only one touchdown for the second time in three games in a 38-7 loss at Georgia Tech. Worse, Vandys defense was gashed for 511 yards.Previously eliminatedEliminated in Week 2: Akron Zips, Ball State Cardinals, BYU Cougars, California Bears, Connecticut Huskies, Eastern Michigan Eagles, Florida Atlantic Owls, Idaho Vandals, Kansas Jayhawks, Louisiana Monroe Warhawks, Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, Nevada Wolf Pack, New Mexico Lobos, NC State Wolfpack, Old Dominion Monarchs, Purdue Boilermakers, SMU Mustangs, South Alabama Jaguars, Texas San Antonio Roadrunners, Troy Trojans, Tulsa Golden Hurricane, UCF Knights, UNLV Rebels, Utah State Aggies, UTEP Miners, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, Wyoming CowboysEliminated in Week 1: Appalachian State Mountaineers, Arkansas State Red Wolves, Bowling Green Falcons, Buffalo Bulls, Charlotte 49ers, Colorado State Rams, Florida International Golden Panthers, Fresno State Bulldogs, Georgia State Panthers, Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, Iowa State Cyclones, Kent State Golden Flashes, Kentucky Wildcats, Louisiana Lafayette Ragin Cajuns, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, Massachusetts Minutemen, Miami(Ohio)RedHawks, Mississippi State Bulldogs, New Mexico State Aggies, North Texas Mean Green, Northern Illinois Huskies, Northwestern Wildcats, Ohio Bobcats, Rice Owls, San Jose State Spartans, Temple Owls, Tulane Green Wave, Virginia Cavaliers, Washington State Cougars Mike Webster Jersey .

Gavin Henson is facing a massive blow after suffering a serious shoulder injury on his return to Aviva Premiership action for Bristol in their 31-13 defeat by Sale Sharks. Dave Winfield Jersey .Henson, 34, was making his first appearance for the Premierships basement side in their clash at Ashton Gate after a leg injury left him sidelined from September 3.The former British and Irish Lion came off against the Sharks after only 12 minutes when he fell awkwardly on the point of his shoulder in a tackle.Sale went on to crush Hensons side with tries from wings Paolo Odogwu and Byron McGuigan, full-back Mike Haley, replacement prop Eifion Lewis-Roberts and substitute Tom Curry.Bristol director of rugby Andy Robinson was doubly distraught after the match with both Hensons latest set-back and a poor display in a game they had targeted to win in their battle to avoid relegation back to the Championship.Robinson said: It is a serious shoulder injury which is a real shame. We really feel for him. It is a potential operation that is needed to the shoulder but we will find out more later. Justin Smoak Jersey . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others.

"We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. BALTIMORE -- Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson was looking for a spark when he pulled rookie quarterback Cody Kessler in the second half of Thursdays 28-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.I didnt think we were doing some things even in the first half that I thought we could do, Jackson said.The spark did not come through.When he didnt like what he saw from Kessler, he went to Josh McCown on the second possession of the second half and the Browns down 13-7.McCown threw two interceptions, lost a fumble, was sacked three times and the Browns were outscored 22-0 in the second half.The end result gave the Browns an 0-10 record, the worst start in team history. Going back to last season, they have lost a team-record 13 games in a row.If you feel somethings not going the way you wanted it to, Jackson said, then you need to change it.The move was for this game only. Kessler will start when the Browns return Nov. 20 against Pittsburgh.Jackson was well aware he had said three days earlier that he was not playing musical chairs with his quarterback, but he did not feel he was.You can say that all you want, he said. I didnt think we were playing good enough at that position at the that time, so I wanted to do something different. If I had left [Kessler] in there and were still not playing good, thats not good either.In last weeks 35-10 loss to Dallas, Kessler played the entire game. The Browns scored 10 points, had 28 yards in the second half and went 1-for-9 on third down in that loss.Against the Ravens he had a first half touchdown pass, but after aa second half opening three-and-out, was 1-for-6 on third down. Kevin Pillar Jersey. wasnt going to sit there and keep watching the plays being missed, Jackson said. Youve got to try something different, and, being in the situation we are, why not try something different?Jackson also used Kevin Hogan for two plays in the first half to run the read-option, which meant the Browns were the first team to use three quarterbacks in a game since the Philadelphia Eagles used Mike Vick, Vince Young and Mike Kafka on Dec. 18, 2011, according to ESPN Stats & Information.Nobody had said anything to me about playing in this game, but things change, McCown said. You just have to roll with it. You go into the game and do the best you can.We all found out about it when Josh came out there in the second half, left tackle Joe Thomas said.Kessler was 11-for-18 for 91 yards with a touchdown. McCown 6-for-13 for 59 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. The Browns finished with 144 yards in total offense.One of the first things McCown did when he heard hed be going in the game was go to Kessler and encourage him.I need to get better, Kessler said.Well before the game, Robert Griffin III?was on the field for a workout, and throwing the ball lightly as he recovers from his broken coracoid bone.Griffin has not played since the season opener. Could he return to the lineup when hes healthy??I think its too early to say, Jackson said.

Indiana might have lost the best point guard in the Big 10 Conference to graduation in Yogi Ferrell, but if the seasons first two games are any indication, it has regained perhaps the conferences most explosive scorer. Stitched New England Patriots Jerseys .Back from a torn right ACL he suffered last December, 6-foot-4 junior guard James Blackmon Jr. has scored 26 and 23 points in wins over Kansas and UMass Lowell, respectively. Blackmon is canning 55.2 percent of his field goal tries, including an impressive 9-of-17 on 3-pointers.Whats more, Blackmon has enjoyed 20-point halves in both games. He victimized Kansas in the second half and extra period of a 103-99 overtime win at the Armed Forces Classic in Honolulu, then picked up where he left off in the first half of Wednesdays 100-78 pounding of UMass Lowell with another 20 points.So Blackmon, Jr. will be in the spotlight again Saturday night when the sixth-ranked Hoosiers continue the Indiana Classic at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Ind., against Liberty.I think theres a confidence when they look at him, Hoosiers coach Tom Crean said of Blackmon. James is a lot more explosive than what he was. Hes playing with more force. Hes playing downhill more. Hes covering more ground.I think the fact that hes moving the ball, that hes getting better defensively, thats a really good thing. To come back from an injury like that and to be a better athlete than he even was and be stronger like he is, that takes a little time for him to get used to.Blackmons presence forces opponents to respect him from 25 feet and in, leading to more scoring opportunities for teammates like 6-10 center Thomas Bryant (14 points per game, 7.5 rebounds), 6-8 forward OG Anunoby (14 points, 5.5 rebounds) and 6-3 point guard Robert Johnson (13 points, 3.5 assists).Indianas offense has been clicking on nearly all cylinders so far, canning 50 percent of its field goal attempts and nearly 45 percent on 3-pointers (26-of-58). Its ability to either get to the rim or create open 3s can test any defense.Liberty (1-1) will counter with a defense the Hoosiers have battled before -- the pack line scheme created by Dick Bennett and still run by the likes of Wisconsin and Virginia. Fourth-year coach Ritchie McKays squad held up-tempo VCU to 64 points in a five-point home loss Tuesday night.I thought everyone came in and battled, and you have to play well on the defensive end to have a chance, McKay said to the Lynchburg (Va.) News & Advance. And we had a chance.The Flames are expected to challenge Winthrop for the Big South Conference title with the return of four starters, plus the arrival of 6-7 freshman forward Brock Gardner. McKay, in his second stint as Liberty coach, said Gardner is the best player he has landed there since signing Seth Curry in 2008.Former Marquette guard John Dawson, a 6-2 senior, is the teams leading scorer at 14.5 points per game. Libertys tallest starter is 6-5, 255-pound forward Myo Baxter-Bell, which will put it at a serious disadvantage inside against the likes of Bryant and Anunoby.It is Indianas second game in the Indiana Classic and Libertys first. The Flames will host UMass Lowell, Mississippi Valley State and Central Penn in their other games in the event. The Hoosiers visit Fort Wayne and host Mississippi Valley State next week to finish their games in the event. Stitched Arizona Cardinals Jerseys . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. Stitched New York Giants Jerseys .05 million next season unless Graham and the Saints subsequently agree on a long-term deal. The designation was released Monday after the deadline passed for NFL teams to use franchise or transition tags on players becoming free agents. http://www.stitchednfljerseys.us.com/Stitched-Green-Bay-Packers-Nike-Jerseys-Cheap/ . -- Charlie Graham stopped 67 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the visiting Guelph Storm 6-5 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. PASADENA, Calif. -- UCLA coach Jim Mora challenged his offense at halftime, asking them to play at the same level shown on defense and special teams through the first 30 minutes.The Bruins responded, with Josh Rosen throwing two of his three touchdowns and rushing for one touchdown after the ultimatum, and UCLA pulled away from Arizona 45-24 on Saturday night.Rosen was 20 of 37 for 350 yards, Kenneth Walker had four catches for 114 yards with a pair of touchdowns and Darren Andrews added 108 yards receiving and a 26-yard TD run.If we could just find a way to put it together as a football team we could be pretty darn dynamic, and thats the challenge, Mora said. I think its pretty evident we can play some really good defense. We can play some good special teams. We can play some good offense. We just got to do it all at the same time.UCLA (3-2, 1-1 Pac-12) struggled to run the ball for long stretches, but it didnt matter as the injury-riddled Wildcats (2-3, 0-2) saw their offensive ranks further depleted. Quarterback Brandon Dawkins took a big hit from linebacker Kenny Young in the second quarter and was replaced after halftime. Running back Nick Wilson came up limping late in the first quarter.Right tackle Gerhard de Beer and right tackle Jacob Alsadek also suffered undisclosed injuries, while left guard Freddie Tagaloa did not travel with the team.Touted freshman Khalil Tate came in at quarterback on Arizonas second possession of the second half, leading a drive that ended in a Josh Pollack field goal. Tates next drive ended with a 31-yard touchdown to Shun Brown. Tate had 72 yards passing and 79 yards rushing in his college debut, throwing a second touchdown to Cam Denson with 38 seconds remaining.FRESHMAN FINDSTate and UCLA wide receiver Theo Howard were among the most accomplished and sought-after high school players in Southern California last year. Those talents were on full display in the Rose Bowl.Howard caught his first career touchdown earlly in the third quarter, providing the spark Mora was looking for with a 19-yard catch-and-run where he shook an Arizona defensive back and sprinted up the far sideline. Stitched Tennessee Titans Jerseys. With dropped passes a lingering issue for the UCLA offense, how quickly Howard can become a consistent part of the rotation could determine the ceiling for what Rosen can accomplish this season.At the start of the season, Tate was expected to redshirt as the fourth-string quarterback seeing only a handful of snaps in practice. With Anu Solomon missing the last four games with a knee injury, those reps increased and coaches told Tate to prepare for the exact situation that unfolded against UCLA.Thought he would give us the best chance to score points, Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said, explaining his decision to play Tate.THE TAKEAWAYArizona: The decision to play Tate could effectively put the Wildcats into rebuilding mode this season. Despite his declaration, Rodriguez would not have put Tate in there simply as a stopgap measure. Rodriguez apparently decided that Tates development now takes precedence.UCLA: After last weeks last-second loss to Stanford, the Bruins got everything they needed to remain in the Pac-12 South race.

She previously worked as a reporter for the Hartford Courant, as a national baseball columnist at The New York Times and as a columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer.Smith was given a standing ovation when her election was announced, and she asked the other half dozen women in the room to stand alongside her as she spoke.Her voice quavering, Smith thanked the guys that stood up to the athletes and teams and said that we are your peers and we deserve to be treated like you.I want to thank you as well as the women who walked the walk and fought the battles and got all of us to this point, she said. No one does this by themselves.Among Smiths other honors, she has earned the Legacy Award from the National Association of Black Journalists in 2011 and the Mary Garber Pioneer Award from the Association for Women in Sports Media in 2000.

Adam Redmond Jersey . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Cooper Rush Jersey . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. http://www.cheapcowboysjerseyssale.com/?tag=chris-covington-jersey-sale . LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. He has a first-class triple-hundred to his name. His IPL 2016 contract was worth Rs 1.9 crore (approximately US$277,000). He has scored one of the fastest first-class centuries by an Indian. He is only 19.Rishabh Pant, born in Roorkee in the hilly north Indian state of Uttarakhand, rose to prominence at the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh earlier this year, with two innings in particular: an 18-ball half-century against Nepal, and a blistering century in the quarter-final against Namibia.Pant has grabbed attention this Ranji Trophy season in much the same way. In October, he scored a belligerent 308 off 326 balls against Maharashtra, and then added his name to the record books with a 48-ball hundred against Jharkhand, one of the fastest first-class centuries by an Indian.Currently, Pant is the leading run scorer this Ranji season after six matches: 874 runs from nine innings, with four centuries and a stellar average of 97. The figure that jumps out is the number of sixes - 47. His captain from the Under-19 World Cup, Jharkhand batsman Ishan Kishan, is next with almost half - 25.****Aggression comes naturally to Pant with the bat in hand. It also contradicts the philosophy of his coach, Tarak Sinha.I prefer one-day cricket but my sir [Sinha] doesnt consider anyone an international player until he plays a Test, Pant told ESPNcricinfo in Mumbai, during the match against Maharashtra at Wankhede Stadium. For sir, I have to play Test cricket. I also want to play Tests. In our club, only Test players are called country players by sir.Sinha is undoubtedly old school, and Sonnet Cricket Club in Delhi, which he founded, has produced about a dozen India players, including Shikhar Dhawan and Aakash Chopra. Ustaadji, as Sinha is popularly known, has always been traditional at heart. The generation to which Pant belongs may have been brought up on T20, but Sinha has always placed a premium on the skills necessary for Test cricket. That does not mean he has curbed Pants attacking instincts.I dont change my style of play just because the format changes, Pant said. If I get a ball to hit, then I go after it and if its a ball to be left, I leave it. The field is usually spread out in one-days, and in first-class, its usually kept up, so there are more scoring opportunities. There are plenty of gaps in first-class - you only have to pick the right balls.Pant began his season with 146 off 124 balls against Assam. His 308 came in the next match, and made him the fourth youngest to score a first-class triple-century. Then came the match against Karnataka, where he scored 24 and 9.Following that game, Delhi coach KP Bhaskar, also a Sonnet alumnus, flagged the dangers of using the same attacking approach in every game. You cant play the same pattern on every pitch, he said Sometimes the situation demands where you need to be a little choosy.Two matches later, Pant blasted that 48-ball century in the first innings against Jharkhand, and 135 at a strike rate of 201 in the second innings. In all, he hit 21 sixes in the match. Despite his coaches cautionary words, he has followed his instincts. If I play two maidens and then hit a couple of sixes, then my strike rate is nearly 100, Pant said. Like against Maharashtra, they started bowling negative lines outside the leg stump to me, so I didnt score. When I got the chance, I sometimes scored 10 or 15 in an over.****Pants technique is not solid yet, but he derives his strength from good hand-eye coordination and the brute power of his bat swing. When I saw him in our camp in Palam (Delhi), we used to create match scenarios, Pravin Amre, Delhi Daredevils assistant coach, recalled. There he would achieve his targets effortlessly. His bat swing is very good and the power with which he hits is eye-catching. Rishabh did very well in our practice games and we had planned then to use him properly in the IPL.Amre believes Pant can settle into first-class cricket without compromising on his attacking play, if he learns to focus for longer. The biggest benefit he gives his [Ranji] team is that if you want an outright win in four days, he helps them score 300-400 quickly and gives them more time, Amre said. If you play 90 overs in a day and score 200-250 only, its not enough for an outright win. But if you score 400-450, its so different. Which is what he does. It may be that sometimes he looks awkward while getting out, but when its his day, he is a game-changer.When Daredevils director of cricket and primary scout TA Sekhar was looking for emerging talent in 2015, he hearrd people in Delhi talk of how hard Pant could hit the ball. Rod Smith Jersey. Sekhar saw that ability first-hand during a few Ranji Trophy matches last year. Then I watched him in the Under-19 World Cup and realised, very rarely you can come across people who can hit the ball so hard among the Indians.****Pant walks out to bat with his collar up. Off the field, he speaks in a matter-of-fact fashion. He describes his state of mind at all times with one word: confidence.Five days after the Nepal match in the U-19 World Cup, he struck a brisk century against Namibia to take India into the semi-finals. It was a memorable day for another reason too. In the IPL auction, Daredevils signed him at nearly 20 times his base price, of Rs 10 lakhs, outbidding Rising Pune Supergiants, Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.When the quarter-final got over, we were all making fun of each other, Pant recounted. Tu 50 mein bik gaya, tu 60 mein bik gaya [You were sold for 50 lakh, you were sold for 60]. The team manager told me Delhi bought me for 1.9 crores. Maine kaha, Sir mazaak mat karo, sahi batao. Sir ne kaha, Sahi mein. [I asked him not to pull my leg, but he said I had actually been bought for that much.] Then I believed him.In his sixth match for Daredevils, Pant faced Bangladesh left-arm fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman, who had already made an impact, in his maiden IPL, playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad. The second ball Pant faced from the left-armer was that offcutter, which has foxed several international batsmen. Pant smacked it over long-on. Sunrisers captain David Warners eyes widened as he appreciatively watched the ball sail over the boundary.A couple of deliveries later, Pant used his supple wrists to whip a low, dipping full toss to the midwicket boundary. He took 26 runs off 13 balls from Mustafizur in that match, the most a batsman has scored against him in a T20.His fearless hitting [stands out], he doesnt care who is at the other end to bowl, Amre says. He clears the ground very easily. People are going to be scared of bowling to him in the future.Though elated by the news from the auction, Pant was unsure about whether he would get opportunities in a set-up, considering there were three other wicketkeepers - Quinton de Kock, Sanju Samson and Sam Billings. I was worried about not getting enough chances, so Rahul [Dravid] sir [Daredevils mentor] sat with me one night and explained: Theres no need to get worried, you will get a chance. But we dont want it to look like you are not ready for the big stage when you play. So make the most of the chances you get. That felt really good, my tension reduced and I was picked from the fourth match and then did decently.In his first IPL season Pant scored 198 runs at an average of 24.75 and strike rate of 130.26 in ten matches. Batting at various positions - from opening the innings to No. 8 - also boosted his confidence. He is at home in the middle order, though, and all four Ranji Trophy centuries this season have come at No. 5.****Flamboyant as he is on the field, Pant has not been carried away with the big money. His indulgences are those of any teenager. He is happy to spend money on perfume, and has bought a car for himself and one for his parents. Otherwise, his focus remains cricket.Pant does not want to disappoint Sinha, who took him under his wing at Sonnet and became his primary caretaker when the batsman moved to Delhi at the age of 12.Initially my technique was horrible. He had said that if I learned the basics of the game, I would score very well. It wasnt happening instantly because once I made these changes, I couldnt score properly. He was only teaching me the basics, without which you cannot play. Like driving off the front foot; I didnt know until then how to drive. If I had not come to Sonnet Club, then I dont know where I would have been right now.Pant did well under Sinhas tutelage, making his Ranji Trophy debut before he turned 18. In the last year and a half, he has moved swiftly from being an unknown to a contender for the India wicketkeepers job, which was thrown open when Wriddhiman Saha was declared unfit for the Mohali Test.Pant knows international cricket is the real deal. My aim will not change, I want to play for India. Blue jersey ka alag mazaa hai [The blue jersey has a different feel to it], he says while recalling the Under-19 days. You feel confident on your own after wearing that.

The NHL schedule makers were rough on both the Colorado Avalanche and Arizona Coyotes, sending the two Western Conference teams on lengthy East Coast road trips after regular-season openers at home. Josh Harrison Jersey .The Avalanche emerged with two wins from their four-game trip and got a much quicker trip south to the Valley of the Sun with a 3-3 record after losing 1-0 to Winnipeg Friday night in Denver. The Coyotes, after winning their opener, dropped the first five games of their trip back east before salvaging a win at Philadelphia on Thursday night.Between the goals going in, and fights, and things breaking and challenges, it was crazy, Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said after Thursdays win But we needed a win to end the road trip and well take it and go home.I think we learned a lot on this trip about how we have to play. If the old saying that adversity makes you stronger is true, we gained some strength this trip.Still, the 1-5 start, with two points in six games, was the worst start to a season in Coyotes history. Arizona hopes to take advantage of having the next three games at home inside Gila River Arena, and the homestand starts Saturday night against Colorado.The Avalanche has only scored 16 goals in six games, near the bottom of the league at present, but has only allowed 17, which is in the top five. Goalie Semyon Varlamov has a shutout and a 2.88 goals against average.Colorados leading goal-scorers are Joe Colborne and Matt Duchene with three each.Veteran winger Jarome Iginla is 16th on the NHLs all-time goal-scoring list, but has only one this season. He missed a golden chance Friday night.The Avs will be playing their second set of back-to-back games this season. In 121 games against Arizona in franchise history, they have scored 399 goals to the Coyotes 401.The Avalanche set new season highs for shots in a game with 37 in Fridays loss, to go with shots in a period (20). The 21 shots allowed was the fewest Colorado has surrendered in a game this season, which made for a frustrating loss to the Jets.The best way to do it is just to turn the page and get right back at it tomorrow, Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog told the team website. We really have to make sure we get back playing the waywe want to on the road and get a big road win tomorrow.The Coyotes have been without top goaltender Mike Smith since the second game of the season. Smith went down with a lower-body injury at Ottawa on Oct. 18 and might only resume skating again next week.In Smiths place, Louis Domingue has a 4.74 goals against average in five games, four of those starts. He got his first win of the season on Thursday with 28 saves.Defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson leads the Coyotes with five goals, three of those in his last two games. His 81 career goals are fourth-most for a defenseman in franchise history.Forward Brad Richardson is the team leader in points with six and forward Max Domi has five assists to pace the Coyotes in that department.Five different Coyotes, including Ekman-Larsson, scored in the 5-4 win over the Flyers that featured a wild third period. Arizona took a 3-2 lead with Martin Hanzals goal that happened at the same time as a fight breaking out, and the Coyotes made that stand with a pair of two-goal leads in the final period.The second period has not been kind to Arizona, which has been outscored 10-4 in those 20 minutes this season.

More than 300 of Australias Olympians have returned home to an official welcome but the biggest hugs have come from their families. Justin Verlander Jersey .Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Governor-General Peter Cosgrove greeted chef de mission Kitty Chiller and flag bearers Anna Meares and Kim Brennan as they left the plane on Wednesday morning.This is a family occasion.

Carlos Beltran Jersey . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. http://www.astrosteamproshop.com/Astros-Charlie-Morton-Kids-Jersey/ . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament. WASHINGTON -- By the time Game 1 of the National League Division Series rolls around, Daniel Murphy will have gone three weeks without a start for the Washington Nationals.When the NL East champs host the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday to get things started, one big question will be which team deals better with all the time off since the end of the regular season.Another will be how the Nationals fare without starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg and slugging catcher Wilson Ramos, both sidelined by injuries (Strasburg for the series, Ramos for the season). And yet another will be how key players such as 2015 postseason star (while with the Mets) Murphy, 2015 NL MVP Bryce Harper and franchise stalwart Ryan Zimmerman deal with nagging ailments.Almost everybody has something, Washington manager Dusty Baker said. So our training staff and everybody will be busy working on guys.After giving his players Monday off, Baker will gather them at Nationals Park on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for workouts. One benefit of waiting until Friday to start their postseason is the extra time for dealing with health issues.Murphy last started a game on Sept. 17, kept out by a strained glute muscle. Since then, he has had only three at-bats, including a flyout as a pinch hitter in Sundays regular-season finale. Baker says he expects to have Murphy in the lineup against the Dodgers.What does the player himself say?Its tough to guess whats going to happen on Friday on Sunday, Murphy said. But hopefully.His impact on the Nationals success -- the nearly wire-to-wire division title, the 95 wins, the home-field advantage in the NLDS -- cant be overstated. Tyler Clippard Jersey. A year ago, remember, Murphy starred for the Mets in October, homering in a record six consecutive postseason games and earning NLCS MVP honors. That helped him get a $37.5 million, three-year deal from Washington, with a salary of $8 million in 2016.All Murphy did was hit .347 with 25 homers, 47 doubles and 104 RBI -- all team highs -- and really carry the offense for much of what turned out to be a real down season for Harper.The youngest unanimous MVP in baseball history last season, Harper batted only .243 with 24 homers and 86 RBI in 2016. After hurting his left thumb on a slide in late September, he sat out four games, then returned to go 1 for 11 with eight strikeouts over the last three days of the regular season.Zimmerman, dealing with a bad calf, finished with career lows in batting average (.218), on-base percentage (.272) and slugging percentage (.370).Youve got to tighten up little things, because theres nothing you can about whats already here. You dont have Ramos. You dont have this guy; this guy might not be swinging well; this guy might not be healthy. Or whatever it is. I just have to manage around that. Its not easy. Id rather just have everybody healthy and just have a set lineup, and me just sit back. But Ive never had that. Thats never been the case. So I dont expect that, Baker said. I just burn the midnight oil sometimes and keep that pad by my bed, and when I get a thought, I go with it.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
