Northern Iowa with 10-7 win over South Dakota State

Sports

October 24th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) — Aaron Bailey ran for 169 yards and the game-winning score as Northern Iowa picked up its first conference win on Saturday with a 10-7 victory over South Dakota State. Bailey also had 113 yards passing for the Panthers (3-4, 1-3 Missouri Valley Conference). He outperformed the entire South Dakota State offense with 282 total yards. The Panthers’ defense held the Jackrabbits (5-2, 2-2) to 259 yards.

Bailey’s game-winning 35-yard touchdown run came with the Panthers trailing 7-3 and capped a five-play, 79-yard drive with 6:04 left in the third quarter. Michael Schmadeke kicked a 24-yard field goal late in the second quarter and Northern Iowa was up 3-0 at the break.

But midway through the third quarter, South Dakota State’s Taryn Christion connected with Connor Landberg for a touchdown and a 7-3 lead. Christion finished with 156 yards passing for the Jackrabbits.

No. 2 Baylor wins 20th straight at home, 45-27 over Iowa St

WACO, Texas (AP) — Shock Linwood ran for 171 yards with a touchdown, and caught a pass for another score as second-ranked Baylor beat Iowa State 45-27 for its FBS-best 20th consecutive home win while ending another impressive streak Saturday.

On a rainy day along the Brazos River, the Bears (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) were held under 60 points for the first time in six games. The only other NCAA team with five consecutive 60-point games was Oklahoma in 2008.

Corey Coleman had two more touchdown catches, his sixth consecutive game with multiple scores pushing his FBS-leading total to 18. He also surpassed Kendall Wright’s school record for career touchdowns with his 31st.

Coleman had a 36-yard score on Baylor’s opening drive, then had a downfield block that helped quarterback Seth Russell break free on a 37-yard TD run for a quick 14-0 lead. Coleman caught a 12-yarder from Jarrett Stidham in the closing minutes.

Iowa State fell to 2-5, 1-3.

Roethlisberger upgraded for Steelers ahead of Chiefs game

Sports

October 24th, 2015 by Chris Parks

Pittsburgh (AP)- Pittsburgh has listed quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as questionable for Sunday’s game at Kansas City. He was a limited participant in practice for a third straight day while continuing to recover from a strained ligament in his left knee in a game with St. Louis Sept. 27. Landry Jones will start if Roethlisberger doesn’t return.

Royals return to World Series, beat Blue Jays in ALCS Game 6

Sports

October 24th, 2015 by Chris Parks

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Lorenzo Cain sprinted home from first base on Eric Hosmer’s single in the eighth inning, Wade Davis weathered a 45-minute rain delay and a white-knuckle ninth, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 Friday night to earn their second straight trip to the World Series.

The victory in Game 6 of the AL Championship Series sent the Royals into the World Series, starting Tuesday night at home against the New York Mets.

After the delay, Cain promptly worked a leadoff walk from closer Roberto Osuna, and Hosmer followed with a clean single that Bautista fielded down the right-field line.

Rather than hit the cutoff man, though, Bautista threw to second to keep Hosmer to a single. That gave the speedy Cain, running full speed the entire way, enough time to beat the relay throw from second base with a textbook slide that ignited a sellout crowd.

Davis retired Josh Donaldson on a grounder with runners on second and third to end it.

Chiefs’ Maclin clears concussion test, returns to practice

Sports

October 24th, 2015 by Chris Parks

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has passed the league’s concussion protocol and should be available for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Maclin was hurt in last week’s loss in Minnesota. He did not work out early in the week while undergoing tests, but returned to practice Friday on a limited basis.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Maclin “has passed everything. We just have to see tomorrow how he feels. But he did, he went through practice today and did a nice job with it.”

Maclin is the Chiefs’ leading receiver with 39 catches for 531 yards and a touchdown. No other wide receiver on the roster has more than eight receptions.
