    UConn Women Win 100th Straight

    By Doug Feinberg – STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Add 100 consecutive wins to the UConn Huskies’ long list of milestones. Given UConn’s glitzier numbers linked to national championships, 11 titles and counting, it may seem ho-hum with no added significance. Geno Auriemma’s squad already owns the longest winning streak in Division I college basketball history. UConn beat its own record of 90 consecutive wins earlier this season with little fanfare. “I hope we can focus on the season and what’s coming up next and whatever’s in store for this team,” Auriemma said. “Let’s get it over with and move onto…

    Patriots 31 Unanswered To Win SB51

    By Barry Wilner – HOUSTON (AP) — Tom Brady led one of the greatest comebacks in sports history highlighted by an unbelievable Julian Edelman catch that helped lift New England from a 25-point hole against the Atlanta Falcons to the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl victory, the first ever in overtime. The Patriots scored 19 points in the final quarter, including a pair of 2-point conversions, then marched relentlessly to James White’s 2 yard touchdown run in overtime to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 Sunday night. Brady, the first quarterback with five Super Bowl rings, guided the Patriots (17-2) through a…

    2017 Pro Football HOF Class Named

    By Eddie Pells – HOUSTON (AP) — The running backs were known simply by their initials: LT and TD. The quarterback served as ringmaster for “The Greatest Show on Turf.” All unstoppable in their own way, LaDainian Tomlinson, Terrell Davis and Kurt Warner earned their spots in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Joining them are sackmaster Jason Taylor – in on his first ballot, the same as Tomlinson – and Morten Andersen, the NFL’s all-time leading scorer, who joins Jan Stenerud as the second pure placekicker to make the hall. Seahawks safety Kenny Easley made it as…

USC FG Beats PSU In Epic Rose Bowl

Jan 2, 2017

By Craig Beacham – PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — After 98 combined points and 1,040 yards of spectacular offensive play, the highest-scoring Rose Bowl in history rested on the left foot of a Southern California kicker who had already missed two field goals. Matt Boermeester somehow blocked out the cacophonous tension in the chilly air. He focused only on securing a perfect ending to an epic evening. “Game was on the line, but you’ve got to keep true to your technique and trust it,” Boermeester said. His technique was sound. His kick was true. And the Trojans got their storybook finish…

We Are…B1G Champions!

Dec 4, 2016

By Michael Marot – INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — As Penn State’s band played and Lucas Oil Stadium rocked, thousands of fans clad in their traditional white shirts chanted “We Are Penn State.” It might have been more fitting if had it been “We are Penn State — and we are back.” Quarterback Trace McSorley put the Nittany Lions squarely back in the national spotlight Saturday night with an epic 38-31 come-from-behind victory over No. 6 Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. It was the largest comeback in the six-year history of the game. Before coach James Franklin left the field,…
