#22 Texas Longhorns at Oklahoma State Cowboys Preview

perth_map

The first two series belonged to OSU. Our own Cade Webb will be running the account live from Stillwater. The bet here is that Texas' head coach has made just enough tweaks to force a couple decisive plays when OSU has the ball. He ran for 106 yards on 10 carries in the first half. And behind three blocked extra points , Oklahoma State steamrolled the Longhorns 49-31 at Boone Pickens Stadium to stake its place in the Big 12 title conversation. Read More »

Maturing QBs to be tested when Michigan hosts Wisconsin

perth_map

Wisconsin is third in the nation in time of possession. The following is more on that game as well as some other things to watch in the Big Ten today. The Ohio State defense's nine interceptions are the Buckeyes' most through three games since 1942. Save for an October 29 road game against the Spartans, it's possible that Wisconsin is the only foe with a credible shot to beat Jim Harbaugh's bunch until the November 26 showdown in Columbus against Ohio State.

Jimmy Garoppolo To Start Vs. Bills Sunday

Whether it's Jimmy Garoppolo or Jacoby Brissett, New England faces Buffalo with a relatively inexperienced young quarterback. Garoppolo missed Week 3 because of a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder suffered during the Patriots' 31-24 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 2. Read More »

Watt has back surgery, expected to miss rest of season

On Friday, O'Brien would not confirm he has taken over play-calling duties. Watt had surgery in late July on a herniated disk in his back and missed all of training camp and the preseason, but was back for Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. ESPN previously reported that Watt had the surgery Thursday. He has 45 passes defended in his six-year career. Yes, I am aware that injuries are a part of the game. Read More »

Ohio State's first drive started with a Barrett interception, and the Buckeyes only led 6-0 after one quarter. Weber helped Ohio State (4-0, 1-0) pour it on with a 46-yard touchdown run on the opening possession of the second half. Urban Meyer said Booker was "probable" this week after missing the last two games with an MCL sprain. The Scarlet Knights also lost senior DE Quanzell Lambert (knee) for the season in that loss to Iowa. Read More »

Crosby-led Canada still can't be beat in best-on-best hockey

When the opposition finally gets a hold of the puck for the odd scoring chance, whether that was in Sochi or here at the World Cup , the last guy standing in its way is Price, whose demeanor is ideal for this team. The lone blemish on Price's ledger in the final game of the best-of-three championship came off the stick of another WHL alumni as defenceman Zdeno Chara (Prince George Cougars) scored the lone marker for Team Europe.

Giants' first loss under McAdoo a repeat of last year

The Redskins also lost cornerback Bashaud Breeland to an ankle injury during the game. Since I prefer to get bad news out of the way first and get the pick-me-up later, we'll start with the losers. This was an NFC East matchup that see-sawed the entire second half after Washington rallied from a 21-9 deficit. He also has eight receptions for 75 yards this year, and that might end up being the most costly part of his absence. Read More »

Spieth and Reed set early pace for USA at Ryder Cup

It was perhaps the best outcome for two US players who had the biggest bull's-eyes on their backs heading into the event. The Americans threw a haymaker with the first opening-session sweep in four decades. Europe headed into the second day loaded with momentum. And Darren Clarke's star pairing gave the European captain what he needed by combining for six birdies in the first eight holes, having managed just one in their 3&2 morning defeat. Read More »

Crutcher's shooting death triggered police brutality protests across the country. Betty Shelby , 42 years old, was booked and released after posting $50,000 bond, the Associated Press reported. Video evidence, suggesting that the vehicle's windows were up, appear to negate the claim that Crutcher was reaching inside his SUV , Crutcher family lawyers said . Read More »

Cardinals top Reds on Molina's disputed double in 9th inning

But when the team tried to call for a review, the umpires had already left the field. All four umpires missed the call and Reds manager Bryan Price must notify the umpires immediately after the game that they want a challenge. "And then, after 30 seconds, he finally realized someone must have told him what had happened, and we were walking off the field". Miller said none of the four umpires had an inkling the ball hit the sign, or they would have reviewed it themselves. Read More »

According to CTV News , pit bulls make up just less than five percent of the Montreal dog population, yet are responsible for almost 38 percent of the city's 137 serious dog-related injuries and deaths since the beginning of 2015. "And I am there to make sure they feel safe and that they are safe". While Montreal's law is under fire, it is not the first piece of breed-specific legislation to pass. Read More »

Clarke sorry for anti-American rant by player's brother

perth_map

It can be nasty - and it can only be more nasty for his brother now and for the rest of Team Europe. Pete Willett attracted uncritical attention for his posts on social media during his brother's victory at the Masters, but his latest remarks for National Club Golfer have caused a stir that disrupted Team Europe's preparations at Hazeltine National on Wednesday.

Packers in Week 3 of the 2016 National Football League regular season takes place on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 PM ET gets underway at Lambeau Field.

Rose and Stenson to lead off for holders Europe

The 22-year-old from Sheffield is the youngest player on either side in this year's Ryder Cup. Willett had looked set to partner Lee Westwood in the morning foursomes as the pair practised together on Thursday , with European captain Darren Clarke sending his likely pairings out together.

Spanish rookie surfs but not as well as he golfs

What Mickelson failed to mention this week, though, was that he had just switched equipment companies right before the Ryder Cup, something that may have been as much to blame for his bad play as having to play an unfamiliar ball. I can't explain it. He's paired with his choice of partners, and doesn't have to worry about Tiger Woods stealing any of the credit for what he surely believes will be the biggest USA win ever.

Kohli hints at end to India's dogged DRS resistance

Spin twins Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja bowled India to victory on Monday in Kanpur, but Kolkata's iconic Eden Gardens is not expected to offer as much spin.

Nick Saban unsure of Alabama backup QB Blake Barnett's transfer plans

McIlwain managed only 15 completions in 30 tries and United Kingdom allowed only 5.9 yards per attempt, but duplicating that feat against Nick Saban and Alabama will be no easy task. No chance Alabama coach Nick Saban is going to insult Kentucky like ESPN analyst Lee Corso did when he said United Kingdom had the worst defense in college football on ESPN GameDay last week before United Kingdom beat SC.

New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson Out of Second Test Against India

Asked why Indians are averse to DRS, he said, "I am not convinced with the hawk-eye especially for the LBW decision". BCCI President Anurag Thakur said last month that India was ready to accept the DRS, but minus the HawkEye. "It's something that we really expect of each other that we keep fighting, and we certainly did that in Kanpur ", the coach said. "The reason I mentioned a lot of Virat (Kohli) is because he knows his strengths and backs them". Read More »

Ozil agrees new Arsenal deal - after getting No 10 'guarantee'

The second is that Arsene Wenger, and whoever eventually replaces the Frenchman given that the long-serving manager will presumably not be in charge of the club until 2020, will invest into the team continually to boost the chances of Arsenal winning the Premier League and Champions League.

Bryant injured the knee on his first catch on the opening series against the Bears , but came back in the first quarter. We're taking the situation day by day, hopefully he can do something tomorrow.

Arkansas vs. Texas A&M 2016 final score

This year's start, however, has been a little more impressive. The last time Texas A&M went 4-0 in three straight seasons was 1939-1941. The others are all notable and could look very nice on a College Football Playoff application. The defense continues to improve under second-year coordinator John Chavis, who has rebuilt the unit from the ground up. Elite defense. Strong running game. Read More »

perth_map

Matthew Dellavedova opted to join the Milwaukee Bucks in free agency and veteran role player Mo Williams has chose to retire after it was thought he would remain with the organisation for one more season. While it would be easy to simply stagger LeBron's minutes in games that matter to help bolster the bench, it's not a strategy that should be employed for the full regular season. Read More »
