Drake fends off late Morehead State rally with a 30-28 win


September 24th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Grant Kraemer threw for 284 yards and a touchdown and Drake held off a late Morehead State rally to beat the Eagles 30-28 in a non-conference game for the Pioneer League teams. Trailing 30-8 to start the fourth quarter, Austin Gahafer threw touchdown passes of 34-yards to Jake Raymond and 15-yards Jake Sutherland. Lawson Page’s 3-yard touchdown run with 1:03 cut the lead to two but the 2-point conversion failed.

Drake (2-2) controlled the onside-kick attempt and ran out the clock. Terry Wallen’s 82-yard punt return for a touchdown gave Drake a 16-8 lead at with 9:55 before halftime. Morehead State (1-3) took an early 8-0 lead when Gahafer found Joby Embrey for a 17-yard score. Josh Lee kicked field goals of 28, 27 and 26 yards to put Drake up by a point. Gahafer was 26 for 50 for 330 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.

Cardinals solve Wrigley again, crush Hammel, Cubs 10-4


September 24th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) – Yadier Molina drove in four runs, Stephen Piscotty homered and the St. Louis Cardinals boosted their playoff hopes by getting to Jason Hammel early in a 10-4 rout of the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Randal Grichuk added three RBIs and Jhonny Peralta had three hits and scored three runs for the Cardinals, who snapped a two-game skid and moved into a tie with San Francisco for the final NL wild-card spot pending the Giants’ game at San Diego.

Hammel (15-10) allowed six runs and six hits while getting just seven outs, hurting his bid for a postseason rotation spot. A day after clinching the NL’s best record, the Cubs were denied their 99th win and a record 57th at Wrigley Field.

Wadley scores on 26-yard run to lead Iowa over Rutgers


September 24th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Akrum Wadley scored on 26-yard run on the play after Iowa’s defense forced a turnover deep in Rutgers’ territory and the Hawkeyes rebounded from their stunning loss to North Dakota State with a 14-7 victory over tougher-than-expected Rutgers on Saturday.

Safety Brandon Snyder set up the score by stripping the ball from receiver Andre Patton with just under nine minute to play to help Iowa (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) win its ninth straight regular-season conference game and its seventh straight league win on the road. C.J. Beathard threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to tight end George Kittle late in the first half to give Iowa a 7-0 lead.

Rutgers (2-2, 0-1) tied the game early in the fourth quarter on a 14-yard touchdown pass from Chris Laviano to Patton. The Scarlet Knights got to the Hawkeyes 17 on their next possession, but Iowa came up with stops on third- and fourth-down runs to end the drive.

Iowa took the lead late in the first half on Beathard’s touchdown pass to Kittle. It capped an eight-play, 99-yard drive that started after the Hawkeyes’ defense stopped the Scarlet Knights after they got a first-and-goal at the 3 on a 76-yard catch and run by Janarion Grant. Hawkeyes cornerback Desmond King stepped on Grant’s right leg at the end of the play and Rutgers’ dynamic receiver was knocked out of the game. Beathard had runs of 14 and 12 yards on the drive and hit four passes, the last to a wide-open Kittle, who just got across the goal line with 34 seconds left in the half.

Rutgers tied the game on Laviano’s third-down pass to Patton in the left corner of the end zone with 12:45 left in regulation, capping a 13-play, 88-yard drive. Justin Goodwin had runs of 24 and 13 yards and Laviano had a 12-yard run.

The Hawkeyes returns to Iowa City for a Homecoming contest against Northwestern on Oct. 1st.

Iowa State drills San Jose State 44-10


September 24th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Jacob Park threw for 165 yards and three touchdowns and Iowa State thumped San Jose State 44-10 on Saturday, giving coach Matt Campbell his first win with the Cyclones. Mike Warren rushed for a season-high 103 yards for Iowa State (1-3), which finally had some success rotating starter Joel Lanning and Park. Lanning was 5 of 8 passing for 136 yards and two TDs.

The Cyclones needed just 7:51 and 24 plays to put up 23 points — a season high for a game — in the first half. Lanning’s 49-yard TD pass to Deshaunte Jones made it 30-3 early in the second half. San Jose State freshman Josh Love threw for 155 yards, but he was also picked off four times. The Spartans (1-3) sorely missed starter Kenny Potter, who was out with a right leg injury.

Up next for Iowa State: The Cyclones host Baylor, its third opponent to be ranked at some point this season. Both Iowa and TCU, which beat the Cyclones by a combined score of 83-23, dropped out of the Top 25 after early losses.

Chiefs down 2 offensive lineman, likely Charles vs Jets


September 24th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs will be without starting offensive lineman Parker Ehinger and backup Jah Reid, and likely without star running back Jamaal Charles for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets. Ehinger will miss his second straight game with a concussion. Reid is out with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, Charles was listed as doubtful for the Jets on Friday’s injury report, and it is becoming increasingly likely that the four-time Pro Bowl player will not play before the Chiefs’ bye. After the Jets, Kansas City visits the Steelers before getting a week off.

Charles has been practicing since training camp, but coach Andy Reid has been cautious when it comes to activating him for game day. He tore the ACL in his right knee in Week 5 last season.
