NCAA in talks with Indianapolis to host all of March Madness

Sports

November 16th, 2020 by Chris Parks

The NCAA says it plans to hold the entire 2021 men’s college basketball tournament in one location to mitigate the risks of the coronavirus. It is in talks with Indianapolis to be the host city. The Final Four is already set to be held in Indianapolis next year. The association said it is relocating early round games that had been scheduled for 13 cities across the country. The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee says hosting all 68 teams in one place is safer.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs signed Andy Reid and Brett Veach to contract extensions that will provide added stability by keeping the most successful coach and general manager combination in franchise history together well into the future. The Chiefs declined to announce the terms of the extensions Monday, though it’s unlikely Reid or Veach was going anywhere. They have built a juggernaut together, reaching back-to-back AFC championship games and delivering the Chiefs their first Super Bowl title in 50 years last season. And at 8-1, they are in good position to defend the title.

VanValkenburg named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week

Sports

November 16th, 2020 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa senior defensive lineman Zach VanValkenburg has been named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week, following Iowa’s 35-7 win at Minnesota, as the Hawkeyes retained Floyd of Rosedale for a school-record sixth straight year. The announcement was made Monday by the Big Ten Conference office.

VanValkenburg (6-foot-4, 270-pounds), is a Zeeland, Michigan, native, and earns his first career weekly honor. It is the second straight week a Hawkeye has earned their first career weekly award by the Big Ten (Charlie Jones vs. Michigan State).
VanValkenburg posted five total tackles (four solo), including a career-high three sacks for a loss of 15 yards. His three sacks are the most by a Hawkeye since A.J. Epenesa registered 4.5 sacks against Nebraska in 2019. VanValkenburg was a key cog in the Iowa defense that nearly posted a shutout against a Minnesota offense that entered the contest averaging 36.3 points per game.
VanValkenburg is second in the Big Ten in sacks per game (0.88) and seventh in the conference in tackles for loss per game (1.3).

Iowa (2-2, 2-2) will play at Penn State (0-4, 0-4) Saturday at 2:30 p.m. (CT). The game will be televised on Big Ten Network.

UNDATED (AP) — There’s now a three-way tie for the NFC West lead following victories by the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams. Kyler Murray completed a stunning 43-yard desperation pass to DeAndre Hopkins with two seconds remaining to lift the Cardinals to a 32-30 victory over the Bills. Jared Goff passed for 302 yards and Darious Williams picked off two throws as the Rams downed the Seattle Seahawks, 23-16.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers remain the only unbeaten team at 9-0 after Ben Roethlisberger threw for a season-high 333 yards and four touchdowns in a 36-10 rout of the Bengals. Roethlisberger was sharp despite being forced to stay away from the team facility all week due to COVID-19 protocols. T.J. Watt collected two of Pittsburgh’s four sacks as the Steelers won their 11th straight meeting with their division rival.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Alvin Kamara scored three times and New Orleans’ defense largely stifled San Francisco to help the Saints secure a 27-13 victory over the 49ers. Drew Brees was pulled at halftime with a rib injury after passing for just 76 yards and one touchdown. The Niners had little success against the Saints’ second-ranked run defense, gaining just 49 yards on the ground. New Orleans improved to 7-2.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Tom Brady threw for 341 yards and was involved in four touchdowns in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 46-23 dismantling of the Carolina Panthers. Brady threw touchdown passes to Cameron Brate, Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski, then ran for another score in the fourth quarter to seal the win. Ronald Jones had a franchise-record 98-yard touchdown run to help Tampa Bay bounce back from Monday’s 38-3 loss to the Saints.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and ran for a third in the Green Bay Packers’ 24-20 victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Rodgers put the 7-2 Packers ahead for good by throwing a 6-yard TD pass to Davante Adams with 9:11 left. The Green Bay QB also had a 78-yard scoring strike to Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who caught four passes for a career-high 149 yards.
