Baseball:

MILWAUKEE (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers have earned a second straight berth in the World Series after knocking off the Milwaukee Brewers in a seven-game National League Championship Series. The Dodgers had a 5-1 victory over the Brewers. The Fall Classic begins Tuesday night at Boston’s Fenway Park. The Red Sox are expected to start Chris Sale in the opener. The two franchises have met in a World Series just once, when Babe Ruth helped Boston take out the Brooklyn Robins in five games 102 years ago.

NBA

UNDATED (AP) – The Los Angeles Lakers have begun the LeBron James Era with consecutive losses, although they showed plenty of fight in a 124-115 loss to the Rockets. James provided 24 points, five rebounds and five assists in the Lakers’ home opener, but James Harden scored 36 points to help Houston rebound from its season-opening home loss to New Orleans.

Big Ten Football Scores

UNDATED (AP) – Purdue has just shaken up the College Football Playoff chase with their most stunning victory in 34 years. D.J. Knox ran for three touchdowns and David Bough threw for three others as the unranked Boilermakers hammered No. 2 Ohio State, 49-20.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Nate Stanley threw for 86 yards and a touchdown and 19th-ranked Iowa pummeled Maryland 23-0 for its third straight victory. Anthony Nelson added a TD on a fumble recovery for the Hawkeyes. Their defense held the Terrapins to just 115 yards and seven first downs on a day when wind gusts topped 40 miles per hour.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Shea Patterson threw two touchdown passes and No. 6 Michigan earned a desperately needed 21-7 win over No. 24 Michigan State. The Wolverines had lost eight of 10 against their in-state rivals and those setbacks have led to them not winning a Big Ten title since 2004.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska built a four-touchdown lead in the first half and survived some nervous moments in the second before pulling away to beat Minnesota 53-28, giving Scott Frost his long-awaited first win as Cornhuskers coach and ending a program-record 10-game losing streak.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) – Trace McSorley passed for 220 yards, ran for 107 and had a hand in three touchdowns in No. 18 Penn State’s 33-28 victory over Indiana.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Jonathan Taylor rushed for 159 yards and Taiwan Deal ran for 111 yards and two touchdowns as No. 23 Wisconsin took advantage of five first-half turnovers to rout Illinois 49-20. Wisconsin, which has won nine straight against Illinois, had three interceptions and recovered two fumbles on the way to building a 28-10 halftime lead.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) – Isaiah Bowser scored on a 5-yard run with 8:12 to play and Northwestern avoided a major letdown by converting two fourth-downs plays on the game-winning drive to defeat struggling Rutgers 18-15.

Area High School Football

It’s the final night of the high school football regular season in Iowa and Illinois and the opening night of the playoffs in Wisconsin.

UNI’s Maahs Pre-Season All Conference

Northern Iowa junior Megan Maahs has been selected to the Missouri Valley Conference pre-season all conference squad released today. The former Western Dubuque standout averaged 10.4 points and 9.8 rebounds last season and tallied 14 double-doubles. She was named to all MVC team and the MVC All-Defensive Team.

The Northern Iowa women’s team was selected to finish 2nd in the league pre-season poll behind conference favorite Drake.

UNI Basketball Media Day

The Northern Iowa men’s basketball team held their media day in Cedar Falls on Wednesday as they get ready to embark on the 2018-19 season.  The Panthers success could rely heavily on two former Dubuque County players, now both redshirt juniors in former Western Dubuque prep guard Spencer Haldeman and former Senior Ram big man Luke McDonnell.

UNI head coach Ben Jacobson says Haldeman is in the mix to be a starter to begin the season. He also says McDonnell has worked hard in the offseason and is being counted on to strengthen the Panthers inside game.

UNI opens the season with an exhibition at home against Wartburg on Sunday, October 28th. The schedule also includes a regular season home date against the University of Dubuque on Saturday, December 8th.  Northern Iowa has been picked to finish 5th in the Missouri Valley with Loyola pegged as the league favorite.

Bosox win pennant…Sale like to start WS opener…Wainwright deal on hold…Broncos blast Cardinals

HOUSTON (AP) – David Price worked six shutout innings and Rafael Devers  slammed a three-run homer as the Boston Red Sox beat the Astros, 4-1 in Houston to capture their first American League pennant in five years. Price had been 0-9 with a 6.16 ERA in 11 career postseason starts before limiting the Astros to three hits. J.D. Martinez opened the scoring with a third-inning homer before Boston completed its fourth straight win after dropping Game 1 of the ALCS.

HOUSTON (AP) – The Red Sox’s five-game series victory over Houston means Chris Sale will likely be the Game 1 starter for Boston in the World Series. Manager Alex Cora said he expected his ailing left-hander to pitch Game 6 of the ALCS Saturday unless Boston wrapped up the pennant last night. Cora says Sale threw off flat ground yesterday and was feeling better since a stomach illness led to him spending a night in a hospital.

UNDATED (AP) – Adam Wainwright will have to become a free agent before his contract agreement with the St. Louis Cardinals can be finalized. Two people familiar with the deal tell The Associated Press that Wainwright’s agreement has been put on hold because his guaranteed salary could not be reduced by more than 20 percent if he remains on the roster continuously. The contract is worth less than the minimum $15.6 million he would have to receive to stay on the roster.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Todd Davis and Chris Harris Jr. returned first-quarter interceptions for touchdowns while the Denver Broncos hounded quarterback Josh Rosen in a 45-10 rout of the Arizona Cardinals. Rosen threw three interceptions, lost two fumbles and limped off the field following his fifth sack late in the game. Emmanuel Sanders threw and caught touchdown passes for the 3-4 Broncos.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) – Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams has been suspended three games for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. He won’t actually miss any playing time since the suspension will run while Williams is on injured reserve because of lingering issues from offseason surgery for a broken right foot. Williams was arrested in May on a charge of public intoxication, but the case was dismissed after Williams completed a state-mandated alcohol awareness education course.

Red Sox get big ruling in win over Astros…Dodgers top Brewers…Machado fined…Leonard, DeRozan excel

HOUSTON (AP) – Boston has a three-games-to-one lead in the American League Championship Series after the Houston Astros had a home run taken away by fan interference in an 8-6 loss to the Red Sox. Jose Altuve  appeared to tie the game with a two-run blast in the bottom of the first, but crew chief Joe West ruled that a fan brushed the glove of Mookie Betts while the outfielder was trying to make a leaping catch. Jackie Bradley Jr. smacked a go-ahead, two-run homer in the sixth, and left fielder Andrew Benintendi made a diving grab with the bases loaded to end it.

HOUSTON (AP) – Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora says lefty ace Chris Sale is still feeling weak and won’t start in Game 5 of the AL Championship Series against Houston. Cora says his lanky hurler lost weight because of the stomach illness that led to his spending a night in a hospital after starting the ALCS opener. Sale hasn’t thrown a bullpen session since rejoining the team on Tuesday.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers have a 3-2 lead in the National League Championship series after Clayton Kershaw tossed three-hit ball over seven innings of a 5-2 victory over Milwaukee. Kershaw struck out nine, retired his final 13 hitters and blanked the Brewers after Lorenzo Cain’s RBI double opened the scoring in the third inning. Justin Turner was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored for the Dodgers, who will try to wrap up the series in Milwaukee tomorrow night.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado has been fined an undisclosed amount by Major League Baseball for kicking Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar during Game 4 of the National League Championship Series against Milwaukee on Tuesday. Machado was already out when he brought his left foot forward and kicked Aguilar in the back of the leg. The incident caused the benches to clear at Dodger Stadium and prompted Brewers MVP candidate Christian Yelich to call Machado a “dirty player.”

UNDATED (AP) – Kawhi  Leonard and DeMar DeRozan each had strong debuts with their new teams after being involved in a trade between Toronto and San Antonio over the summer. Leonard had 24 points and a team-high 13 rebounds as the Raptors earned a 116-104 victory over Cleveland. DeRozan’s team-high 28 points carried the Spurs past Minnesota, 112-108.

 Iowa State to appeal $25K Big 12 fine for field storming

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State President Wendy Wintersteen said Tuesday the university will appeal a $25,000 fine levied by the Big 12 Conference for violating postgame celebration policies when fans stormed the field following a home win over West Virginia last weekend.

The league told Iowa State that Commissioner Bob Bowlsby had determined university officers did not take the “appropriate precautions to create a safe environment” for the Mountaineers. West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen was critical of school efforts, calling the scene “unprofessional” and suggesting his players were not in a “safe place.”

Iowa State says it reviewed the actions taken by its officers. The Cyclones contend they followed all postgame celebration policies and had taken “several additional measures” to make the situation safer.

Dodgers win marathon, tie series…Bosox thump Astros…Lakers extend 3 players…Butler with Wolves

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Cody Bellinger singled home Manny Machado in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 2-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Bellinger came off the bench to go 2-4 and help the Dodgers even the National League Championship Series at two games apiece. Sixteen pitchers combined to allow just 15 hits in the longest NLCS game since 2013.

HOUSTON (AP) – Steve Pearce crushed a tiebreaking, solo homer and Jackie Bradley Jr. added a grand slam as the Boston Red Sox beat the Houston Astros, 8-2 to take a two-games-to-one lead in the American League Championship Series. Pearce broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth and Bradley’s blast was part of the Red Sox’s five-run eighth. Winning pitcher Nathan Eovaldi  allowed two runs and six hits over six innings of Boston’s second consecutive win.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Los Angeles Lakers have exercised their contract options on Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart for next season. Ingram and Kuzma each averaged 16.1 points a game last season. Kuzma made the NBA all-rookie first team last season and Ball averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.9 rebounds in 52 games as a rookie.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Jimmy Butler was with the Minnesota Timberwolves when the team traveled to San Antonio for its NBA season opener. Butler has only participated in four days of on-court workouts with the team while hoping his trade request will be granted. Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau says he’s planning to play him tonight if Butler feels up to it.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio State has announced that injured defensive end Nick Bosa has decided to leave school to focus on getting ready for the NFL draft in the spring. The junior All-American already had four sacks this season when he suffered a core muscle injury in the third game of the season. Considered one of the best players in college football, Bosa had left no doubt that he would leave school after this season to enter the draft.

Stanley Named B1G Player of the Week

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa junior quarterback Nate Stanley has been named Big Ten Conference Co-Offensive Player of the Week following Iowa’s 42-16 win at Indiana.  On Sunday Stanley was named Walter Camp national Offensive Player of the Week for the performance.

Stanley completed 21-of 33 pass attempts against Indiana for 320 yards and six touchdowns.  The scoring strikes included five different receivers.

The six touchdowns tie Chuck Long for the second most in single-game history at Iowa. Long twice threw six touchdowns in a game, while the school record is seven held by Chuck  Hartlieb . The 19th ranked Hawkeyes (5-1, 2-1) host Maryland (4-2, 2-1) Saturday in the annual Homecoming contest at Kinnick Stadium.

Dunne Named MVFC Offensive Player of the Week

UNI senior quarterback Eli Dunne led the Panthers to a 42-28 road win over No. 24 South Dakota Saturday and was named the Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his performance.

Dunne went 23-32 for 253 yards and four touchdowns and scored another touchdown on a one-yard run. He had completions to eight different receivers, and all caught multiple passes. Dunne’s four touchdowns are a season high.

Northern Iowa will host South Dakota State for a homecoming showdown this Saturday at the UNI-Dome.

Cyclone Duo Honored by Big 12

Iowa State junior defensive end JaQuan Bailey was named Big 12 Co-Defensive Player of the Week and for the second straight week freshman quarterback Brock Purdy was named Conference Newcomer of the Week after their performances in Iowa State’s 30-14 win over No. 6 West Virginia on Saturday.

Bailey had two of ISU’s school-record-tying seven sacks, as the Cyclones boast back-to-back seven-sack games. Bailey also was instrumental in helping the Cyclones register a safety late in the fourth quarter, forcing a holding call with the quarterback in the end zone.

Purdy threw for 254 yards on 18-of-25 passing and three touchdowns, and also rushed for 39 yards in the win.

Jackson Twins Named Receive USHL Honors

BEREA, Ohio (AP) – Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rod Streater suffered a neck fracture while covering a punt on Sunday and is done for the season.

Watching his back…Nats don’t wait…Championship coaches tapped

HOUSTON (AP) – Astros shortstop Carlos Correa is trying to get his aching back as healed as possible before Houston’s AL Championship Series opener Saturday. Correa told The Associated Press that although he’s tried to put on a brave face, his back is hurting him on every swing and miss, and on the bad days it can even be uncomfortable to walk. Correa returned from a six-week stint on the DL on Aug. 10 and declared he was better, but he hit just .180 in the second half of the season and had just one hit – a homer – while Houston swept Cleveland in their three-game AL Division Series.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Nationals aren’t waiting for the World Series to end to get going on their 2019 roster. Washington acquired reliever Kyle Barraclough from Miami on Wednesday, its first offseason move to rebuild its bullpen. Barraclough went 1-6 with 4.20 ERA and 10 saves in 17 chances during 61 appearances this year. He allowed one hit in 36 at-bats in June, when he was chosen NL reliever of the month, but struggled with his command the rest of the season. Washington sent the Marlins $1 million in international slot allotment as part of the deal.

UNDATED (AP) – A person with knowledge of the details says Steve Kerr and Jay Wright have been chosen as assistant coaches for the U.S. national basketball team.

The trio of coaches will work with Popovich in the 2019 Basketball World Cup and 2020 Olympics, assuming the Americans qualify for both events.

BERLIN (AP) – The German weekly magazine that first published the rape allegation against soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo says it has “hundreds of documents” that substantiate its report and there is no reason to believe they are not authentic. Ronaldo’s lawyers had issued a statement calling the documents cited in the report “complete fabrications.”

Iowa’s Luka Garza shooting for opener after cyst removed

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa center Luka Garza hopes to be ready for the season opener next month after doctors removed a 9-pound cyst attached to his spleen in early September.

Garza said on Monday during the team’s annual media day that his doctors don’t really know when or why the cyst developed, though he said he played last season without any pain in that area.

But Garza said that, had the cyst not been removed, he would have run the risk of it rupturing in practice or during a game. Damage to the cyst might have caused the spleen to rupture as well, a scenario that would’ve put Garza’s life in danger.

The Hawkeyes open their season on Nov. 8 against UMKC.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers have a 1-0 lead in the National League Division Series after Hyun-Jin Ryu worked seven innings of four-hit ball in a 6-0 shutout of Atlanta. Joc Pederson led off the bottom of the first with a home run, one inning before Max Muncy crushed a three-run shot to put the Dodgers in control. Losing pitcher Mike Foltynewicz lasted just two innings, surrendering four runs and three hits.

MILWAUKEE (AP) – The Milwaukee Brewers needed 10 innings to beat the Colorado Rockies, 3-2 in Game 1 of the National League Division Series. The Brewers blew a 2-0 lead in the ninth but won it on a walk-off single by Mike Moustakas. Christian Yelich slammed a two-run homer, reached base four times and scored the winning run.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Tom Brady threw his 500th career touchdown pass and Sony Michel ran for 98 yards as the New England Patriots downed Indianapolis, 38-24.

Brady also ran for a touchdown and Michel added a 34-yard scoring burst that put the Pats ahead, 38-17 with 7:08 remaining.

Dubuque Fighting Saints Faceoff Luncheon

Yanks advance to ALDS…Buck bounced by Birds…Cubs’ Russell accepts ban…Falcons’ Freeman returns

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees have advanced to the American League Division Series by beating the Oakland Athletics, 7-2 in the wild-card game. Aaron Judge put the Yanks ahead to stay with a two-run homer just two batters into the bottom of the first. Giancarlo Stanton also homered and Luke Voit hit a two-run triple in their postseason debuts.

BALTIMORE (AP) – Baltimore’s Buck Showalter is the latest major league manager to be let go since the season ended, one day after Paul Molitor was let go by Minnesota. Showalter took the Orioles to three playoff appearances during his eight-plus seasons with the team, but the Birds went 47-115 this year and finished 61 games behind the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox. The O’s also fired executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette, who had been in the front office since November 2011.

CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs are going to open the 2019 season without infielder Addison Russell after he accepted a 40-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic abuse policy. Russell’s ban includes the 11 regular-season games he missed while on administrative leave, and he can return May 3 against the Cardinals unless the Cubs have a postponement before then. Russell batted .250 with five home runs and 38 RBIs in 130 games this year.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) – Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman has been cleared to play after missing three games with a sore right knee. Freeman has been the Falcons’ leading rusher the last three seasons and should give the team an offensive boost for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. The Falcons will be without tackle Grady Jarrett, one of four defensive starters out with injuries.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson has received a 20-game suspension from the NHL for a blindside hit to the head of Blues center Oskar Sundqvist during Sunday’s preseason finale. Wilson’s fourth ban in less than 13 months will cost him $1.26 million. It’s the longest suspension for on-ice play since Sharks forward Raffi Torres was ordered to sit out 41 games following a preseason hit in 2015.

Rockies advance…Twins drop Molitor…NFL suspends Seahawks’ Kendricks…Lawrence OK for Clemson

CHICAGO (AP) – Tony Wolters singled home the winning run in the 13th inning to give the Colorado Rockies a 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs in the NL Wild-Card game at Wrigley Field. Nolan Arenado  hit a sacrifice fly in the first to open the scoring before Kyle Freeland held the Cubs to four hits over 6 2/3 shutout innings. The win puts the Rockies in the NL Division Series against the Brewers, beginning tomorrow at Milwaukee.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Twins will begin a managerial search following the dismissal of Paul Molitor after four seasons. Molitor was named the AL Manager of the Year after leading the club to the 2017 wild-card game, but the team finished a very distant second to the Cleveland Indians with a 78-84 mark this year. The Hall of Fame hitter was 305-343 after replacing longtime skipper Ron Gardenhire.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) – The NFL has suspended Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks indefinitely after he pleaded guilty last month to federal insider trading charges. A suspension had been anticipated since his guilty plea in early September. Seattle signed Kendricks prior to Week 2 because of a need at linebacker with K.J. Wright out following knee surgery.

CLEMSON, S. C. (AP) – Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says Trevor Lawrence will play when the fourth-ranked Tigers take on Wake Forest on Saturday. Lawrence missed the second half of fourth-ranked Clemson’s 27-23 win over Syracuse last weekend after taking a hard hit right before halftime. Swinney initially said Lawrence had concussion-like symptoms, but by Monday, coaches were calling the injury a neck strain.

TORONTO (AP) – The Toronto Maple Leafs suddenly find themselves thinner in goal heading into their season opener tonight against the Montreal Canadiens. Curtis McIlhinney was claimed off waivers by Carolina and Calvin Pickard was a waiver claim by Philadelphia, leaving the Leafs with Frederik Andersen and backup Garret Sparks as their only netminders with NHL experience. The Hurricanes picked up McIlhinney after learning Scott Darling would miss a few weeks because of a hamstring injury suffered in the preseason finale against Nashville.

Brewers, Dodgers win division crowns…Chiefs top Broncos…Winston back under center

CHICAGO (AP) – The Milwaukee Brewers have locked down the NL Central title and home-field advantage throughout the National League playoffs by scoring twice in the eighth inning of a 3-1 victory over the Cubs in Chicago yesterday. The game was tied 1-1 until Lorenzo Cain and Ryan Braun hit RBI singles. Christian Yelich was 3-for-4 with an RBI single, leaving him with a league-leading .326 average but falling one RBI and two home runs shy of winning the Triple Crown.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy belted two-run homers as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Colorado, 5-2 yesterday to win their sixth consecutive NL West championship. Walker Buehler added an RBI single and limited the Rockies to one hit over 6 2/3 innings. The Dodgers will host the first two games of their NLDS against Atlanta, and the Rockies will travel to Chicago to take on the Cubs in today’s wild-card game.

DENVER (AP) – Kareem Hunt provided a four-yard touchdown run with 1:39 remaining to cap the Kansas City Chiefs’ comeback in a 27-23 win at Denver. The Chiefs scored two TDs over the final 6 1/2 minutes to remain one of the NFL’s two unbeaten teams at 4-0. Patrick Mahomes threw for a touchdown, ran for another and was 28 of 45 passing for 304 yards and no interceptions.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Jameis  Winston will be the starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ next game Oct. 14 in Atlanta. Coach Kirk Koetter confirmed the change Monday after Winston came in for Ryan Fitzpatrick during Sunday’s 48-10 loss to the Bears in Chicago. The first overall pick in the 2015 draft was 16 of 20 for 145 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in his season debut versus the Bears after serving a three-game suspension for violating the NFL personal conduct policy.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone says there’s no timetable for the return of top running back Leonard Fournette, who re-injured his right hamstring in Sunday’s 31-12 victory against the New York Jets. Fournette missed two and a-half games after injuring the hamstring in the season opener. He carried 11 times for 30 yards in the first half versus the Jets before leaving the game.

NFL Schedule from Sunday (9/30)

Patriots hammer Dolphins

UNDATED (AP) – So much for the demise of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

The Pats had dropped two straight before Tom Brady threw for 274 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday’s 38-7 romp over the previously-unbeaten Dolphins.

Running back James White finished with a rushing and receiving touchdown. Rookie running back Sony Michel rushed 25 times for 112 yards and his first career touchdown to help the Patriots even their record at 2-2.

But the Pats could be spending time without Rob Gronkowski, who didn’t play after suffering an ankle injury in the third quarter.

Ryan Tannehill failed to engineer a scoring drive for the 3-1 Dolphins, completing 11 of 20 passes for just 100 yards and an interception before he was pulled in the fourth quarter.

Elsewhere in the NFL:

– Joe Flacco threw for a pair of early touchdowns and was 28 of 42 for 363 yards in the Ravens 26-14 victory at Pittsburgh. Tucker accounted for all the scoring after halftime as Baltimore improved to 3-1 and ended the Steelers’ run of nine consecutive wins on Sunday nights. Ben Roethlisberger finished 27 of 47 for 274 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the 1-2-1 Steelers.

– The Titans moved to 3-and-1 by getting a 10-yard scoring strike from Marcus Mariota  just before the end of overtime to complete a 26-23 win over the Eagles. Mariota passed for 344 yards and two touchdowns while also running for a score in his first start since suffering an elbow injury in the season opener. Carson Wentz had 348 passing yards for the 2-2 Eagles, who led by 14 in the third quarter.

– Mitchell Trubisky threw a career-high six touchdown passes and the Bears earned their third straight win by crushing the Buccaneers, 48-10. Trubisky finished one TD pass shy of a franchise mark set by Sid Luckman against the Giants in 1943. The 3-1 Bears also racked up 483 yards versus the 2-2 Bucs, nearly matching their record of 488 in Luckman’s record-setting game.

– The Cowboys pulled out a 26-24 victory over the Lions on Brett Maher’s 38-yard field goal as time expired. Maher’s fourth field goal was set up by Dak Prescott’s 34-yard completion to running back Ezekiel Elliott, who had a career-high 240 all-purpose yards with 152 yards on the ground. Prescott was 17 of 27 for a season-high 255 yards with two touchdowns, including tight end Geoff Swaim’s first career score. Dallas evened its record at 2-2 and dropped the Lions to 1-3.

– The Jaguars are 3-1 after Blake Bortles threw for a career-high 388 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-12 stifling of the 1-3 Jets. Bortles hit Donte Moncrief for a 67-yard touchdown to put Jacksonville ahead 25-3 late in the third quarter. Rookie QB Sam Darnold was sacked three times and nearly had three interceptions while the Jets were being held to just 178 total yards.

– Aaron Rodgers threw for 298 yards and finally connected with Jimmy Graham for a TD as the Packers blanked the Bills, 22-0. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen had 151 passing yards and accounted for three turnovers, including two interceptions and a fumble late in the fourth quarter that stood on review. Green Bay is 2-1-1 following its first shutout since 2010. The Bills are 1-3.

– The Falcons fell to 1-3 by dropping a heartbreaker for the second straight week. Andy Dalton tossed a 13-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green with 7 seconds remaining gave the Bengals a 37-36 triumph in Atlanta. Giovani Bernard ran for 69 yards and two touchdowns for the 3-1 Bengals. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan hit rookie Calvin Ridley for two of his three touchdown throws after tossing a team record-tying five TDs passes in last Sunday’s overtime loss to the Saints.

– Matt McGrane’s 29-yard field goal in overtime gave the Raiders their first win since Jon Gruden’s return as coach, 45-42 over the Browns. Derek Carr threw four TD passes and connected on a game-tying 2-point conversion with 30 seconds left in regulation to extend the game. Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield threw for 295 yards and two TDs, but he also lost two fumbles and threw two interceptions in his first NFL start.

– Alvin Kamara  ran for three second-half touchdowns and finished with 134 yards on 19 carries in the Saints’ 33-18 victory over the Giants. New Orleans entered with the 30th-ranked defense before limiting the Giants to 299 total yards. Drew Brees  finished 18 of 32 for 217 yards as the Saints picked up their third straight win and dropped New York to 1-3.

– Sebastian Janikowski missed a pair of field goal attempts before nailing a 52-yard boot as time expired to send the Seahawks past the Cardinals, 20-17. Arizona QB Josh Rosen completed 15 of 27 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions in his first NFL start. Seattle’s Earl Thomas suffered a left leg injury on the Arizona TD pass and was carted to the locker room.

– Houston’s nine-game losing streak is over after Ka’imi Fairbairn took advantage of his second chance on game-ending, a 37-yard field goal attempt to give the Texans a 37-34 overtime win over the Colts. Deshaun Watson was 29 of 42 with 375 yards, two touchdown passes and one interception in his finest performance since returning from a torn ACL in his right knee. Adam Vinatieri became the league’s career leader in field goals when he made a 42-yarder with two seconds left in the first half, and he extended the mark to 567 with a 44-yarder to give the Colts a 34-31 lead in overtime. Both teams are 1-3.

– Philip Rivers threw for three touchdowns and Melvin Gordon rushed for 104 yards in the Chargers’ 29-27 comeback win over the 49ers. Caleb Sturgis hit three field goals, including a 21-yard kick that put Los Angeles ahead with 7:41 left. C.J. Beathard got the start for the Niners and was 23 of 37 for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. L.A. is 2-2, while the 49ers are 1-3.

162 aren’t enough to settle NL Central, West races…Buckeyes, Irish climb in AP poll

CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs will host the Milwaukee Brewers in a one-game playoff today for the NL Central title. Both teams forced the extra game by winning yesterday, with the Brewers thumping Detroit, 11-0 and the Cubs rolling to a 10-5 win over St. Louis. Jose Quintana will start for the Cubs against Jhoulys Chacin.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Colorado Rockies are in Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers in a one-game playoff for the NL West crown today.

Walker Buehler will take the mound for Los Angeles today against German Marquez.

UNDATED (AP) – Ohio State has moved up to No. 3 and Notre Dame to No. 6 in The Associated Press college football poll. Ohio State moved past Clemson after rallying in the fourth quarter at Penn State. Clemson slipped to No. 4 after a close victory at home against Syracuse. Alabama remains No. 1 and Georgia No. 2 still hold the top two spots in the media ranking.

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) – Europe’s string of Ryder Cup home wins continues following a 17 1/2-10 1/2 rout of the U.S. The Europeans earned 7 1/2 of a possible 12 points in singles play to stay unbeaten at home in Ryder Cup competition since 1993. Sergio Garcia won three matches over the weekend to break Nick Faldo’s career record for points at the Ryder Cup.

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) – The newly-installed “roval” at Charlotte Motor Speedway led to a memorable finish in yesterday’s NASCAR Cup playoff race. Martin Truex was ahead until he was bumped by Jimmie Johnson with two turns remaining, allowing Ryan Blaney to pass them and win the race. Jamie McMurray was second, followed by Clint Bowyer, Alex Bowman and pole-sitter Kurt Busch.

Dead even in the NL West, NL Central…Europe in control at Ryder Cup…Clemson escapes

UNDATED (AP) – The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers are all tied for first place in the NL Central heading into the final game of the regular season. Miles Mikolas (MY’-koh-lahs) improved to 18-4 by limiting the Cubs to an unearned run and five hits over eight innings of the St. Louis Cardinals’ 2-1 victory at Wrigley Field. Christian Yelich (YEH’-lihch) homered twice, including a tiebreaking solo shot in the seventh inning to push the Brewers past Detroit, 6-5.

UNDATED (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers were able to clinch the final major league playoff berth and move into a first-place tie with Colorado in the NL West by outscoring the Giants, 10-6 in San Francisco. Manny Machado tripled home the tiebreaking run in the eighth for the Dodgers, who also benefited from home runs by Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig (YAH’-see-ul pweeg). The Washington Nationals played the spoiler’s role to perfection in Denver as Juan Soto provided a solo homer and four RBIs in a 12-2 thrashing of the Rockies.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Third-ranked Clemson survived a scare as Travis Etienne capped his career-high 203-yard rushing performance by scoring the go-ahead touchdown from two yards out with 41 seconds left in the Tigers’ 27-23 triumph over Syracuse. Things looked bleak for the Tigers when Eric Dungey’s second 1-yard rushing TD put Syracuse up 23-13 with less than 13 minutes left. But backup QR Chase Brice guided a 94-yard fourth-quarter drive that ended with Etienne’s third touchdown of the afternoon.

UNDATED (AP) – Freshman Jaylen Waddle returned a punt for a touchdown and caught two scoring passes, including a 94-yarder, in No. 1 Alabama’s 56-14 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette. D’Andre Swift ran for two touchdowns and second-ranked Georgia used dominant defense to overcome a sluggish offensive start in a 38-12 win over Tennessee. Dwayne Haskins threw two touchdown passes in the final seven minutes to wipe out fourth-ranked Ohio State’s 12-point deficit in a 27-26 triumph at No. 9 Penn State.

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) – Europe is carrying a 10-6 lead over the United States into the final day of Ryder Cup. Just two teams have come back from such a deficit: the Americans at Brookline in 1999 and the Europeans in the 2012 “Miracle at Medinah.” Europe led 10-4 Saturday until Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson defeated Sergio Garcia and Alex Noren 3 and 2, while Jordan Spieth (speeth) and Justin Thomas bounced back from an early deficit to take a 4-and-3 victory over Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter.

Rams win Thursday NFL matchup…Miami routs North Carolina…Player probe

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Jared Goff turned a phenomenal first half into the biggest game of his career, and it was still just barely enough to beat Kirk Cousins. Goff passed for career highs of 465 yards and five touchdowns, winning a scintillating duel with his Minnesota counterpart and leading the unbeaten Los Angeles Rams to a 38-31 victory over the Vikings on Thursday night.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) – The Turnover Chain became the Touchdown Chain. Miami tied a school record with three defensive touchdowns, N’Kosi Perry threw for a score in his first start and the No. 16 Hurricanes downed North Carolina 47-10 on Thursday night. Romeo Finley and Joe Jackson ran back interceptions for scores, Jonathan Garvin scooped up a fumble and rumbled in for another touchdown and the Hurricanes (4-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) wound up forcing six turnovers in all.

UNDATED (AP) – The NHL is investigating Philadelphia Flyers forward Jori Lehtera after a report he’s being questioned in connection with a drug bust in his native Finland. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly says the league is investigating the situation. Lehtera’s lawyer, Ari Nieminen, said Thursday he expects police to release a statement clarifying some misunderstandings that came out of the report. Finnish news agency MTV reported Wednesday that Lehtera is connected with an investigation into a cocaine ring.

UNDATED (AP) – Eric Reid is back in the NFL. The Carolina Panthers have signed the free agent safety to a one-year contract. Reid filed an official grievance letter with the NFL in October of 2017, alleging that team owners and the league colluded to prevent his employment due to his protest activities. Reid, along with quarterback Colin Kaeprnick, participated in protests during the playing of the national anthem before NFL games to highlight social awareness and racial injustice. Panthers general manager Mary Hurney told The Associated Press it was a “football decision.”

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) – Jim Courier is finished as captain of the U.S. Davis Cup team after eight years in the job.

CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs clinched a National League playoff berth and stayed a half-game ahead of Milwaukee in the NL Central by pulling out a 7-6 win over Pittsburgh on Albert Almora Jr’s walk-off single in the 10th inning. Jason Hayward slammed a two-run homer and Javier Baez picked up his NL-leading 111th RBI before the Pirates stormed back from a 6-1 deficit. Jose Quintana had to settle for a no-decision after allowing two runs and four hits over five innings, including solo blasts by Jose Osuna and Corey Dickerson.

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The Milwaukee Brewers have earned their first playoff berth since 2011, grabbing at least a wild-card slot with a 2-1 win at St. Louis.

The Cardinals are one game behind the Dodgers for the second NL wild card.

PHOENIX (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers fell a half-game off the NL West lead and into the second NL wild-card slot with a 7-2 loss at Arizona. The Diamondbacks chased Ross Stripling with a three-run second and A.J. Pollock hit his three-run homer in the fifth for a 6-2 lead.

Martinez raised his major league-leading RBI total to 127 with a three-run homer and Rafael Devers went 4-for-5 with six RBIs as the Boston Red Sox blasted the Birds, 19-3.

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffin remains away from the team and out of action indefinitely amid concerns about his mental health. The three-time Pro Bowl selection has demonstrated a series of erratic behavior since last week, when he was barred from practice until he had a mental health evaluation. Police in suburban Minnetrista say the 30-year-old Griffen was acting erratically Saturday and making comments about people trying to kill him before he was eventually transported by ambulance to an area hospital for evaluation.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) – Los Angeles Rams cornerback Aqib Talib will undergo surgery Thursday to repair an ankle injury suffered in Sunday’s win over San Diego. Rams coach Sean McVay said Tuesday that a timetable for Talib’s return will not be known until after the procedure is completed and the full extent of the injury is determined. Talib has six tackles, two passes defended and one forced fumble in three games for a team that has limited opponents to 199 yards passing per game and two touchdown passes.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) – The Carolina Panthers have addressed their injury-depleted offensive line by acquiring veteran Marshall Newhouse from the Buffalo Bills for a conditional draft pick. Newhouse has experience playing tackle and guard in 70 starts over nine seasons. Panthers tackles Matt Kalil and Daryl Williams are on injured reserve, while guard Trai Turner missed Sunday’s game because of a concussion.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone says outfielder Aaron Hicks should recover from a tight left hamstring in a few days and return to the lineup this week. Hicks aggravated the hamstring while running to first and avoiding a double play in Monday’s 4-1 win at Tampa Bay. The Yanks are also playing without second baseman Gleyber  Torres because of minor hip/groin discomfort, but Boone expects the rookie back in the lineup Wednesday.

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Mets have reinstated David Wright from the disabled list and activated him for the first time since June 2016. Assistant general manager John Ricco says it’s unlikely Wright will play during the three-game series because the Braves are trying to earn home-field advantage in the Division Series, but it’s possible Wright could pinch-hit if the score is lopsided. He hasn’t played in the majors since May 27, 2016, due to neck, back and shoulder injuries that required surgery.

Steelers hold off Bucs…Rookies Mayfield, Rosen to start…Clemson changes QBs…Didi hopeful

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Ben Roethlisberger threw for 353 yards and three touchdowns in the Steelers’ 30-27 victory at Tampa. Vance McDonald scored on a 75-yard pass play and finished with four catches for 112 yards. Antonio Brown and Ryan Switzer also had first-half TD receptions for Pittsburgh, which led 30-10 at halftime and picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick three times.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) – Rookie Josh Rosen is the Arizona Cardinals’ new starting quarterback and will be under center Sunday against Seattle after playing the last 4 1/2 minutes of Sunday’s 16-14 loss to Chicago. The 10th overall pick in this year’s draft replaced veteran Sam Bradford after three Arizona second-half possessions ended in turnovers. Rosen threw an interception to end his first drive and was sacked to end the second, but the rookie from UCLA completed four of seven passes for 36 yards.

CLEVELAND (AP) – Baker Mayfield will be the starting quarterback when the Cleveland Browns take in the Raiders in Oakland on Sunday. The first player taken in this year’s draft got the job following a brilliant relief effort in Thursday’s 21-17 win over the New York Jets, the Browns’ first victory since 2016. He entered for an injured Tyrod Taylor late in the first half and completed 17 of his 23 passes for 201 yards to lead Cleveland from a 14-0 deficit.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Clemson head coach Dabo  Swinney is changing starting quarterbacks for Saturday’s game against Syracuse, electing to play freshman Trevor Lawrence over senior Kelly Bryant. Lawrence replaced Bryant after two series of Saturday’s 49-21 drubbing of Georgia Tech in Atlanta, leading the Tigers on four TD drives in a five-series span in the second and third quarters. He completed 13 of 18 passes for 176 yards and a career-high four touchdown throws to rally the Tigers’ offense after a slow start with Bryant behind center.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius hopes to return to the lineup this week, saying his wrist injury feels “way better.” Gregorius hurt his right wrist Saturday when he slid headfirst on Aaron Hicks’ 11th-inning double to score the run that clinched a postseason berth. He is hitting .268 with a career-high 27 homers and 86 RBIs.
