  • Spartans Upset Nittany Lions

    By Noah Trister – EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michael Geiger had the windmill. Now Matt Coghlin has the slide. On a long, wet, wacky day at Spartan Stadium, Coghlin’s celebration sure felt appropriate. Coghlin kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired — some seven hours after the game began — and No. 24 Michigan State upset No. 7 Penn State 27-24 on Saturday night in a game that was delayed nearly 3 1/2 hours by severe weather in the second quarter. After making his winning kick, Coghlin ran back down the field and slid across it on his…

  • Astros Win 1st World Series

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — From laughingstock to lift off. George Springer and the Houston Astros rocketed to the top of the baseball galaxy Wednesday night, winning the first World Series championship in franchise history by romping past the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7. Playing for a city still recovering from Hurricane Harvey, and wearing an H Strong logo on their jerseys, the Astros brought home the prize that had eluded them since they started out in 1962 as the Colt .45s. “I always believed that we could make it,” All-Star slugger Jose Altuve said. “We did this for…

  • Buckeyes Comeback, Give PSU 1st Loss

    By Ralph D. Russo – COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — J.T. Barrett hit Marcus Baugh with a 16-yard touchdown pass with 1:48 left in the fourth quarter and No. 6 Ohio State rallied from 11 down in the final five minutes to hand No. 2 Penn State its first loss, 39-38 on Saturday. Barrett played one of the best games of his decorated career, going 33 for 39 for 328 yards and four touchdown passes, three in the fourth quarter after the Buckeyes (7-1, 5-0 Big Ten) were down 35-20. Penn State led 38-27 with 5:42 left and it looked as…

  • Penn State Pay Back!

    By Ralph D. Russo – STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Saquon Barkley and Trace McSorley cut through Michigan’s stingy defense, each scoring three touchdowns, and No. 2 Penn State emphatically avenged its last regular-season loss with a 42-13 victory against the 19th-ranked Wolverines on Saturday night. Barkley set the tone the first time he touched the ball. He took a direct snap on the second play of the game and blazed 69 yards for a touchdown on his way to 161 yards from scrimmage that are a nice addition to his Heisman Trophy bid. McSorley ran for three scores for…

  • Big Ten adds 2 games; 20-game schedule starting in 2018-19

    By Matt Norlander – (CBS Sports) – The Big Ten announced that men’s basketball will go to a 20-game schedule beginning in 2018-19. The vote was made official by the conference’s administrators council and was revealed in advance of its league media day at Madison Square Garden. The Big Ten will be the first conference to play 20 conference games in the history of Division I basketball, a season earlier than the ACC, which will play 20 league games in 2018-19. We might only be halfway to more leagues doing the same as coaches in the SEC and Pac-12.  Their…
