12 LSU’s 22-21 upset win Saturday at No. Burrow was by no means perfect against Auburn, completing 15 of 34 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown. During one stretch he completed just 6 of 20 passes against a vicious Tigers defense. If you don’t think that’s important, then consider that Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham’s interception on the first pass of the game led to an LSU touchdown on its opening drive. Burrow threaded the ball between three Auburn defenders, including over the defending linebacker, and Dillon did the rest, racing the final 50 yards to make the score 21-19.

After forcing an Auburn three-and-out, Burrow and Co. got the ball at their 24 and drove 52 yards in 14 plays over five minutes of possession. In the end, that's what the Tigers have been missing at quarterback. He has completed just 46.1 percent of his passes this season (36 for 78), for 440 yards and three touchdowns. Georgia, Mississippi State and Alabama are three of LSU's next four opponents after that — and all those teams have talented quarterbacks.
Rangers plate 5 for lead in 6th 00:47 Sep. 15th, 2018 SAN DIEGO -- After a struggling through a road trip in California, the Rangers seemed to have found their groove in San Diego. A five-run sixth inning propelled Texas to a 6-3 victory over the Padres Saturday night at Petco Park as the Rangers were able to take advantage of some rare blunders from San Diego's bullpen. View Full Game Coverage Joey Gallo got the Rangers on the board early, continuing his dominance against left-handed pitchers this season with a towering solo shot to right-center off southpaw Eric Lauer in the second inning. The blast marked Gallo's 37th big fly of the season and his 14th against left-handers, moving him into a tie with Christian Villanueva and Trevor Story for the second-most against lefties in baseball. But the big fireworks came in the sixth inning, when Robinson Chirinos' bases-clearing double ignited Texas' offense. Chirinos, batting in the eight hole, came to the plate with the bases loaded and sent Jose Castillo's fastball offering to the left-center gap for a three-run double. Pinch-hitter Isiah Kiner-Falefa followed with a double of his own to score Chirinos, and Kiner-Falefa scored thanks to Shin-Soo Choo's RBI single a few at-bats later. The offensive barrage was a key aspect that the Rangers had been sorely missing in the last week. The team averaged just two runs per game in their last series against the Angels, but they're averaging five runs a game in their last two matchups against San Diego.
Even so, the Cyclones couldn’t quite keep up as the Sooners rode big plays and timely plays to a 37-27 Big 12 Conference win at Jack Trice Stadium and avenged last season’s upset loss to ISU in Norman, Oklahoma. Oklahoma (3-0, 1-0) had a 75-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and Sooners receiver Marquise Brown had 189 yards in the first half. Oklahoma also converted four of five third-down situations and took a 10-0 lead. After the first quarter, Iowa State (0-2, 0-1) played the Sooners even, each team scoring 27 points. The Cyclones held Oklahoma to 165 additional yards of total offense and the Sooners only converted two of six third down opportunities the rest of the way. “We were right there the whole game, to be honest with you,” Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said. “We couldn’t make that play and we couldn’t get that stop. At the end of it, that was the difference. My goodness, I think we had it down to a one-possession game late in the fourth quarter with a chance to go win the game. Tackles (solo-ast-total) IOWA STATE — Eisworth 6-8-14, Harvey 4-3-7, Lewis 3-3-6, Spears 3-3-6, Uwazurike 4-1-5, Ruth 2-3-5, Peavy 3-1-4, Payne 2-2-4, Rose 2-1-3, Bowens 2-0-2, Young 1-1-2, Hummel 1-1-2, J.

There are photos of Hall of Fame Giants everywhere inside the Quest Diagnostics Center at 1925 Giants Drive, from Wellington Mara to Bill Parcells to Harry Carson to Lawrence Taylor to Michael Strahan, and there are four Lombardi Trophies in the glass case in the lobby. And the reminder of who they should be and what they should be playing for is staring the Giants in the face on the locker room wall as they head to the MetLife Stadium playing field on game day. “Pretty much walking out, everybody just gives it a little tap,” Evan Engram said Friday. This is a time for the 2018 Giants to show Giants Pride and carry Giants Pride with them into Jerry World on Sunday night against the Cowboys. Giants Pride became a flickering flame at the end of the Tom Coughlin Era, try as he did to never surrender. With all the new faces on the 2018 Giants, it is more critical than ever for Eli Manning to show them all what Giants Pride means. Nevertheless, his owners and coaches swear by him, and are asking him to turn back the clock before time runs out on him, and on them. But, with the best group of weapons he ever has had surrounding him, he needs to play better than he did last season and start winning some football games. Zak DeOssie is the other Giant who has won two Super Bowls, so he, too, knows exactly what Giants Pride means. I’m excited what the future holds.” They should do themselves a favor and take that GIANTS PRIDE sign with them to Jerry World.
Jerry Jones and Dez Bryant turned some heads when a photo surfaced of the two sitting together at the Beyonce and Jay-Z concert Tuesday night at AT&T Stadium. The two did not discuss the possibility of Bryant returning to the team. "We didn't talk about football," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan's G-Bag Nation show [KRLD-FM].

"At the end of the day, we got to focus on the players that are on our team," Stephen Jones told the Ben and Skin show. "We feel really good about our receiving corps moving forward. ... We think they can get the job done." In regards to the concert, Jerry Jones said it was "outstanding." "Boy was that a production," he added. Not only great entertainers, they are just very proficient."
Kills Enneking - 12 Rogers - 9 Assists McLaughlin - 35 Sutton - 14 Digs Burleson - 16 Kinley - 14 Blocks Wood - 2 Anderson - 6 NORMAN — In its first home matches of the season, the Oklahoma volleyball team tallied a pair of wins to open the OU Nike Invitational at McCasland Field House on Friday. The Sooners also led NSU in blocks (7-3), in digs (52-46) and in assists (41-26). Although the Lady Demons opened the first set with a 3-1 advantage, Oklahoma used a 6-0 run to establish a 7-3 lead. After the Lady Demons scored once to make it a 23-11 set, an NSU service error and a Kadiku kill sealed the 25-11 set victory for OU. The Sooners closed the set victory by winning four of the last six serves, including kills from Maras, Kadiku and Anderson. Oklahoma sent it to five sets with a 25-20 win in set four before clinching the comeback win with a 16-14 victory in set five. Enneking totaled 19 kills and 17 digs, and McLaughlin collected 42 assists and 21 digs. The Sooners carried their advantage to clinch the set, sealing it with a kill from Enneking and a block by Anderson and Sarah. The Aggies came back to take the lead in the match with a pair of set victories, 25-22 and 25-19. Texas A&M opened the fifth set 3-0, but like before, the Sooners fought back to tie it at 4-4 and take their first lead of the set at 9-8.
Rattler has been hurt for the last few weeks because of a week one injury where, as Rattler put it, his ankle got rolled up on while he was scrambling outside of the pocket. Rattler and his Pioneers came in riding a three game win streak, dating back to the 2017 season and were looking to put their name in the hat as one of the better high school teams in the nation. Despite the five-star Rattler and his Pioneers not scoring on their final drive, he had a game to remember. Rattler torched JSerra's defense with 460 yards passing and four touchdowns. With that performance, Rattler was named OUInsider Sooners Commit top performer of week two. - Four-star 2019 wide receiver commit Arjei Henderson had eight catches for 109 yards and one touchdown last week. Bridges ended the game with 106 yards rushing and two touchdowns on just five carries. Bridges also added four catches for 64 yards and a touchdown. My thoughts: You see the rankings of where OU is at in the 2019 and 2020 classes. With performances that you have seen the last weeks you can bet that OU commits will be moving up.
"This is the year," forward Evander Kane said. Karlsson had 62 points (nine goals, 53 assists) in 71 games last season. Karlsson won the Norris Trophy in 2012 and 2015 and has been named an NHL First Team All-Star four times (2012, 2015, 2016, 2017). It's exciting," said Burns, who won the Norris Trophy in 2017. Pavelski said Karlsson will make the Sharks a faster team. "We only get to see him twice a year, but the thing that jumps out right away is just his skating ability," Pavelski said. Although Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said Karlsson will definitely be part of San Jose's power play, he said he has yet to decide with whom he'll be paired. "I don't know what the timeframe is on that because of his immigration and things like that, but we'll get him in here and then we'll start to look at some of those things." "I texted him right after the trade happened and just told him he's going to love it here," said Kane, who was acquired by San Jose in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres on Feb. 26 and signed a seven-year contract extension May 24. "I think he's going to quickly realize what a special organization this is, how passionate our hockey fans are here in San Jose, what a great place it is to play and good team to play for.
