GRAND FORKS, N. .D. -- Keaton Studsrud sneaked into the end zone from a yard out in double overtime, completing a 20-point comeback and lifting North Dakota to a 47-44 win over South Dakota in the 51st installment of the annual Potato Bowl.Both teams scored on the first play of the first overtime. John Santiagos 25-yard run gave North Dakota (1-2) a 41-34 lead, but South Dakota answered promptly when Chris Streveler found Shamar Jackson for a 25-yard score.South Dakota (1-2) got the ball first but settled for a field goal in double overtime, leaving the door open for the Fighting Hawks to win with a touchdown.The Coyotes took a 34-14 lead early in the third quarter, but North Dakota rallied for 20 straight points, capped by Deion Harris 33-yard interception return with 3:28 left, Strevelers second pick six of the game.Streveler passed for 215 yards and four touchdowns. . The injury bothered Bledsoe in the Suns victory over the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the teams home loss to Memphis on Thursday night. . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. . R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. MILWAUKEE -- Standing all of six feet tall and 155 pounds, Zach Davies hardly looks like the prototypical staff ace -- but hes been exactly that for the Milwaukee Brewers this season.Davies takes the mound Saturday evening against the Cincinnati Reds looking to write yet another chapter in what has been a breakthrough rookie season.In 20 starts, Davies has gone 9-4 with a 3.96 ERA. He hasnt taken a loss since June 30, going 4-0 with a 2.31 ERA in his last six outings.While he didnt take a decision his last time out, he held the Atlanta Braves to three runs on eight hits without a walk while striking out three over seven innings of work in an extra-inning loss at Miller Park.(Im) frustrated a little bit with my outing but at the same time, I can take some positives from it, said Davies, who allowed more than two runs in a start for the first time since June 30. Its tough going into extra innings and being on the losing side of things but theres always tomorrow.Davies will be making his fourth career start against the Reds. Hes 3-3 with a 2.41 ERA in his three previous outings against Cincinnati, with a 1-0 mark with a 1.42 ERA in two meetings this season.He pitched seven shutout innings on July 17 when he scattered four hits and struck out five as the Brewers lost 1-0 on a ninth-inning passed ball.I let the defense make plays behind me, Davies said after that game.Cincinnati will hand the ball to rright-hander Dan Straily, who makes his 22nd start of the season looking to continuing a successful stretch. He hasnt allowed more than three earned runs in any of his last seven starts and is 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in his last five outings.Hes got a slider and a changeup and thats pretty vanilla when you think about it, Reds manager Bryan Price said. He doesnt have a power this or a power sinker, a power split, but he knows how to pitch and he has the deception element that allows him to play better than we see on the radar gun.Straily began the year in camp with the Houston Astros, posting a 6.00 ERA in five Grapefruit League appearances. Houston traded him to San Diego on March 28 and the Padres waived him three days later.Cincinnati claimed him later that day and after making three appearances out of the Reds bullpen, he moved into the starting rotation on April 18 and has been there ever since.(His) performance has been sensational when you consider how we got him, Price said. He was going to be a long man and became really our most consistent starter from the beginning of the season to date.The Reds victory Friday gave them a 6-5 lead in the season series with Milwaukee, which has a four-game lead over last-place Cincinnati in the National League Central.

Were dealing with yet another abbreviated slate on Thursday, but on the bright side, weve seen some truly awful Thursday slates this season, and while this one isnt great, its not the worst weve seen. Nike Air Max 2016 Sale . With a legitimate ace at the top and multiple mid-tier options also in play, this should add up to a decent little slate for DFS players.PitchingEliteMadison Bumgarner, as you might expect, is the top play of the day. He heads to Oakland, where hell have to face a DH instead of a pitcher. However, the Coliseum is a pitcher-friendly environment, and while the As fare better against left-handers than righties, theyre still middle-of-the-road. Plus, Bumgarner is elite, so hes matchup-proof anyway. His 1.99 ERA is second in baseball only to Clayton Kershaw, and his 10.1 K/9 is a career best. Dont expect a lofty strikeout total, as the As are striking out an MLB-best 16 percent in June. That said, the floor here is high, and thats what you want in cash games.SolidNo team in baseball strikes out more against right-handed pitching than the Brewers, who fan 26 percent of the time. Add in the fact that they also dont do much damage when they do make contact (90 wRC+), and Kenta Maeda finds himself in a very appealing spot on Thursday. The right-hander is in play in both cash and guaranteed prize pool games.Despite a game score of 58 and a high-upside matchup against the Reds, Im going nowhere near Gio Gonzalez in cash games on Thursday. The lefty has surrendered five or more runs in five of his last seven starts, and most of those outings came against weak offenses (Padres, Brewers, Reds, Mets). Feel free to roll the dice with him in tournaments, though, as hes striking out more than a batter per inning and the Reds whiff at a 22 percent clip against southpaws.John Lackey is coming off his worst start of the season (7 ER in 4 1/3 innings against the Marlins), but hes in prime position to bounce back on Thursday. The veteran right-hander draws a Mets team thats striking out 23 percent of the time versus righties and put up a .299 wOBA in June. Prior to his last outing, Lackey had allowed three or fewer runs in each of his previous 10 starts, so I still trust him as a cash play.Like Lackey, Jordan Zimmermann is coming off his worst outing of the season. However, a road tilt against Tampa Bay might be too good to pass up. The Rays have done little against right-handed pitching this season and are fanning at a 25 percent clip, more than any team in the AL. Whiffs arent a big part of Zimmermanns game this season (5.7 K/9), but he owns a 7.3 career K/9 and should be able to rack up at least a handful of Ks in such a favorable matchup. Im still hesitant about Zimmermann given his recent struggles, but hes still in play as a potential SP2 if the price is right.Steven Matz, who is dealing with a bone spur in his pitching elbow, had his next start pushed back from Wednesday to Thursday. The bone spur is more of a red flag for season-long owners than DFS players, but a date with the Cubs naturally means sounding a note of caution with any cash recommendation. The Cubs are a top-five team against left-handed pitching and lead the majors in walk rate (11 percent), so the Mets lefty will have little margin for error. That said, the door is open for Matz as a high-upside tournament play. The Cubs are whiffing at a 24.3 percent clip in June, while Matz is striking out nearly a batter per inning.StreamersOne of the most enticing matchups of the day belongs to Carlos Rodon. The southpaw draws a home start against the Twins, who are one of the worst teams in the AL against left-handed pitching and strike out 25 percent of the time. For his part, Rodon is whiffing a batter per inning and has allowed more than two earned runs just once in his last seven outings. He makes for an appealing GPP play, and hes also a viable streaming option given his low ownership.Michael Pinedas 5.51 ERA is an obvious deterrent, but theres potential value here if you look for it. Not only does the 27-year-old sport a top-10 whiff rate (10.4 K/9), but hes also shown some positive trends in June, posting a 3.00 ERA over five starts. With the Rangers, a team thats below average against righty pitching, on tap, Pineda is set up to succeed on Thursday.Wei-Yin Chen and his fantasy owners caught a break, as the Miami Marlins lefty was pushed to Thursday to face the Atlanta Braves instead of facing the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday as originally scheduled. Look for Chen to take advantage, as the Braves are the second-worst team in terms of wOBA versus southpaws, plus they sport an above-average 22 percent strikeout rate in this scenario.AvoidThis probably goes without saying, but dont go chasing Chris Young and his 9.2 K/9 rate on Thursday. The right-hander owns a 7.79 ERA in June and a 9.70 ERA on the road this season. The Cardinals, who sport an MLB-best 119 wRC+ versus righties this year, wont go easy on him.HittingTommy Milone has made only six appearances (five starts) for the Twins this season, but they havent been pretty. Those six outings have resulted in a 5.33 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and five homers allowed in 27 innings. Right-handed boppers Jose Abreu and Todd Frazier should be able to take advantage, and Melky Cabrera, whos batting .340 off lefties this year, is also in play.Theres no way around it: Left-handed batters have absolutely bashed Chris Young this season. Hes faced 113 lefty hitters this year, and theyve put up a .364/.442/.867 slash line against him. With the Cardinals on the docket, Matt Carpenter is an elite play, and Brandon Moss and Matt Adams are both high-end options if theyre in the lineup.Reds lefty Brandon Finnegan has shown some good things this season. However, hes also struggled with his control (4.2 BB/9) and has allowed tons of hard contact (36 percent). On Thursday, hes running into a Nationals team that crushes left-handers (.345 wOBA and .202 ISO). There are plenty of Nationals bats worth consideration here, but Jayson Werth, who is batting .394-5-15 versus lefties this year, should be the top target.With soft-tossing lefty Dillon Overton on the hill for the As on Thursday, Buster Posey makes for an intriguing option behind the plate. Overton allowed three homers in his major league debut. Posey, meanwhile, is hitting .301/.388/.479 versus southpaws this season.Most likely to go yard: Matt CarpenterChris Young cant get left-handed hitters out, and Carpenter, who is on pace for 30 bombs, smashes righties. Lets not overthink this.Most likely to swipe a bag: Ian DesmondMichael Pineda has allowed 11 stolen bases this year (bottom 10), while catcher Brian McCann has allowed 34 baserunners to steal off him (bottom five). Desmond, who leads the Rangers with 13 swipes, must be licking his chops. Nike Air Max 90 Womens Uk . Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. Nike Air Max Thea Sale Uk . The news was first reported on Gonzalezs Twitter account and confirmed by the Rockies. Gonzalez has a six-week window before position players have their first workout at spring training in Arizona. . LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. DENVER -- Go figure: The Atlanta Braves had traffic on the bases nearly every inning and still lost.Stranding 10 runners doesnt exactly help.Tyler Chatwood allowed one hit over five erratic innings, Trevor Story lined his fourth homer in three games and the Colorado Rockies swept the Braves with a 7-2 win Sunday.It seemed like we shouldve been the one running away with the game, really, with all the baserunners we had, said Braves interim manager Brian Snitker, whose team was outscored 26-12 in the four-game series. We just couldnt pierce a gap or get a hit or get anything going and take advantage of all the walks.The result: Atlantas 10th straight loss at Coors Field. The team is now 2-8 since the All-Star break.Were trying to get it back and get going and obviously havent been able to, outfielder Jeff Francoeur said. I think thats the frustrating part. I think that everybodys putting the work in and doing things. Its just there are no results. And thats tough, especially when you get beat the way we got beat really in three out of four of these games.Tyrell Jenkins (0-2) surrendered three homers and seven runs in 3 1/3 innings.He was just kind of off, Snitker said. Didnt have the crispness and the bounce in his step that he had prior.Its all a learning process for Jenkins, who made his third big league start.When you give up seven runs, you always want to do something different, he said. I just have to be more aggressive.Chatwood (9-6) finished with an intriguing line: a career-high eight walks, one hit -- Freddie Freemans single in the first -- six strikeouts and no runs. Hes the 16th pitcher in major league history to post that sort of roller-coaster line and go at least five, according to the Rockies.Thats not a normal stat line for a starter, said DJ LeMahieu, whose team captured all four from the Braves after losing two of three to struggling Tampa Bay. He grinded.Just as intriguing was Storys line for the Atlanta series: 7 for 14 wiith four homers and nine RBI. Nike Air Max 90 Essential Mens. Nah, thats not normal, either, LeMahieu said. Not for anybody.Nolan Arenado jumpstarted the offense with a three-run homer in the first and LeMahieu added a solo shot in the fourth as the Rockies captured their 10th straight victory over the Braves at Coors Field.Story launched a two-run shot in the fourth a day after breaking the NL rookie record for most homers by a shortstop. He now has 27 this season and moves closer to the major league rookie record for a shortstop. Nomar Garciaparra had 30 with Boston in 1997.Chatwood walked a batter in every frame and left after throwing 97 pitches, just 51 of them for strikes.Effectively wild, I think they call that, Chatwood said. I thought my stuff was really good today.Normally, if you walk guys, youre going to get hurt here. Anytime you can do that and get away with it, its always nice.Rockies reliever Gonzalez Germen surrendered both runs in the seventh. Freeman had an RBI double and Nick Markakis brought in the other on a grounder.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: RHP Julio Teheran threw from 90 feet Sunday and didnt feel pain two days after leaving a game early with tightness in his right lat. He remains hopeful he can make his next scheduled start. We still have to wait, Teheran said. I dont feel any pain and thats a good sign.THIS & THATThe Braves have scored three runs or less in 10 of their last 12 contests at Coors Field. ... Freeman finished the series hitting .313 with a double, two triples and an RBI.UP NEXTBraves: After Mondays day off, Atlanta plays a two-game series in Minnesota.

BUFFALO, N.

The team also promoted tight end Gerald Christian from the practice squad.Roberson, 24, has played in 25 games since signing with the St. Louis Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2014.The Bills (4-3) host the New England Patriots (6-1) on Sunday.---AP NFL website: and Stephen Curry One Shoes .

Stephen Curry Shoes Singapore . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. . General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. Stumps India Blue 139 for 3 (Rohit 22*, Jadeja 3*, Kuldeep 2-47) and 693 for 6 dec (Pujara 256*, Jackson 134, Gambhir 94) lead India Red 356 (Binny 98, Mishra 65, Jadeja 5-95) by 476 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball details If things had been pretty gloomy for India Red for much of the first three days of the Duleep Trophy final, the weather began to mirror their fortunes on the fourth afternoon. Early morning rain had left wet patches on the outfield, resulting in first half of the day featuring Super Soppers rather than cricketers. When the players did ultimately come out, they managed just 26 balls of play before problems with the run-up area forced them off again. After another lengthy delay, the players returned to play a further 28.4 overs.In that time, it was India Red left-arm wristspinner Kuldeep Yadav who emerged with an enhanced reputation. Bowling with far greater control than during India Blues marathon first innings, Kuldeep flighted the ball and even got it to dip and drift, not to mention sharp turn from a good length. He was rewarded for his control with the wickets of Gautam Gambhir and Mayank Agarwal, while legspinner Amit Mishra beat a charging Dinesh Karthik to leave India Blue three down by stumps. But with a lead that had ballooned to 476, that was not nearly enough to change the course of a match which has all but been decided going into the final day.Gambhir and Agarwal hit a flurry of boundaries off Pradeep Sangwan and Nathu Singh when the days play finally commenced at 6.30pm. Sangwan and Nathu were inconsistent in their line and length, and when Sangwan drew attention to an uneven stretch in the run-up area, play was suspended once again to conclude a session that had featured 32 runs in 26 balls.The resumption, afterr over an hour, brought with it a return to a more sedate rate of scoring, largely thanks to the control and discipline with which Kuldeep bowled. Under Armour Curry 1. Kuldeep beat Gambhirs edge on several occasions and even induced an edge that didnt carry to slip. Having earned those moral victories, he duly won the battle when he got one to drift into middle stump and straighten to trap Gambhir plumb in front of middle.That brought Rohit Sharma, who came in ahead of first-innings double centurion Cheteshwar Pujara, but it was Agarwal who made most of the running. His knock of 52 featured six fours, not all of which were convincing, and there was a sense of restlessness in his strokeplay. He ultimately fell to Kuldeep, attempting a slog sweep without reaching the pitch of the ball; Nathu at deep midwicket gratefully accepted the offering. Kuldeep had his second wicket and had won the crowd over, with chants of Kuldeep, Kuldeep greeting him when he returned to his fielding position at the boundary.Though Mishra did not bowl with Kuldeeps control and continued to struggle for rhythm, he was gifted a wicket when Karthik came charging down to him and got nowhere near the pitch of the ball, leaving Ankush Bains with an easy stumping. Both spinners seemed to struggle with dew towards the end of play.Meanwhile, Rohit signed off with a lofted six down the ground off Kuldeep that drew big cheers from the crowd. He will resume on day five with Ravindra Jadeja for company. It remains to be seen whether the two India players push for quick runs and a declaration or seek match practice ahead of the upcoming series against New Zealand.

Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley has dismissed suggestions Travis Cloke will play his last AFL game for the Magpies this weekend. Saucony Grid 9000 Black .Cloke will return to the side to face Hawthorn at the MCG on Sunday afternoon after his third spell back in the VFL this season.Speculation is rife that the out-of-favour 29-year-old is set to seek a trade to another club after a difficult season, but Buckley is adamant he will see out the final year of his current contract.It will be Traviss last game for 2016, Buckley replied when asked if Cloke was about to play his last match for the club.Thats an external story, its not ours.We dont take into account any of the external stuff. He has a contract for next year, hes next-best suited to the role that we need played on Sunday. We want to win a game of footy ... thats where our entire focus is.Buckley said he is in constant dialogue with all his players, including Cloke, about their futures and he has no reason to believe the veteran forward is looking for a fresh start.Cloke has been preferred ahead of American tall Mason Cox to replace young star Darcy Moore, who injured a hamstring in last weeks big win over Gold Coast.The Pies are 12th on the ladder with nine wins as they prepare for their final game of a disappointing season, but Buckley is intent on finishing strongly.We made a commitment after the bye that we were going to have a crack at it, he said.Weve had a pretty tough draw in that back half (of the season) but weve played some of our better footy for the year and we want to see more of it on Sunday.Were 5-4 from (the past) nine games and weve taken some good scalps and been competitive, but were still not satisfied.

SEATTLE -- It stands that the real test of No. 5 Washingtons validity as a playoff contender is about to begin.The warm ups for the Huskies are done.As we head down the stretch here its not always going to be like this with the teams we have coming and there is stuff to talk about and work on, Washington coach Chris Petersen said.Jake Browning threw three touchdown passes to give him 26 for the season, added another rushing TD, and Huskies used a big first half to roll past Oregon State 41-17 on Saturday.After a week off, the Huskies (7-0, 4-0 Pac-12) easily outworked the undermanned Beavers (2-5, 1-3) despite a performance that gives Petersen plenty to work on heading into a schedule thats about to get more difficult.While getting past Stanford and Oregon earlier this season were important moments for the Huskies, it turns out they were not the tests to prove Washingtons worth. The schedule gets more difficult beginning next week with a trip to No. 19 Utah, followed by a road game at California, with USC, Arizona State and a trip to Washington State still looming on the schedule.We were just paying attention to Oregon State. When Utah comes up, well think about Utah, Washington safety Budda Baker said. We know Utah is a great team.The Huskies won their 10th straight, a streak that started with a victory at Oregon State last season. It is Washingtons longest win streak since winning 12 straight during the 2000-01 seasons.And they continue to dominate the first half. Washington put away this expected blowout early, jumping to a 21-0 lead after one quarter and leading 31-0 at halftime. Washington has now outscored opponents 100-7 in the first quarter and 200-24 in the first half this season.We came out pretty hot, Washington wide receiver John Ross said. We had a great week of practice and those are the kind of weeks that we need to stay consistent.Browning led the attack, even if his completion percentage wasnt up to the standard he set through the first six games when he led the country hitting 72 percent of his throws. Browning threw touchdowns of 19 yards to Aaron Fuller and 23 yards to Dante Pettis sandwiched around his own 1-yard TD run in the first quarter.Browning added a 41-yard touchdown pass to Pettis in the third quarter. Browning finished 14 of 28 for 291 yards and Petersen said part of the game plan was to take more shots downfield leading to the lower completion percentage.Ross had 115 yards receiving and Pettis added 112 yardds -- both with four catches -- giving the Huskies two receivers with more than 100 yards for the first time since 2002. Saucony Shadow 5000 Black. The depleted Beavers started third-string quarterback Marcus McMaryion after Darell Garretson and Conor Blount were injured. McMaryion was 12 of 26 for 148 yards and two interceptions.The Beavers were also without starting running back Ryan Nall due to a foot injury aggravated in last weeks loss to Utah. Tim Cook had 108 yards rushing and a late TD, while Victor Bolden Jr. had a 75-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.If you watch college football or care about defense of care about the Pac-12 on defense you know how good those guys are up front and they are elite, Oregon State coach Gary Andersen said of Washingtons defense.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Huskies should move up at least one spot from No. 5 after No. 2 Ohio States loss to Penn State. An impressive win at Utah next week might be enough to sway some voters for a spot even higher.THE TAKEAWAYOregon State: The Beavers came in with the second-best pass defense in the Pac-12 giving up just 179.5 yards per game. But Washington attacked from the start and exposed holes in what has been a very good secondary.Washington: Injuries could be a concern going into next week against Utah. Washington played without starting DE Joe Mathis, the team leader with five sacks. Mathis was on the sideline during the game but his absence left Washington undersized on the end of its defensive line. Connor OBrien started in place of Mathis.RUNNING AWAYOne bright spot for Washingtons offense was the performance by Myles Gaskin. After breaking out for 197 yards rushing against Oregon, Gaskin followed up with 128 yards on 18 carries, most of that coming in just over a quarter. Gaskin had just two carries for 15 yards in the first quarter and by the middle of the third quarter had his third straight 100-yard game.WASHINGTON FIXTURESince 1961, Frazer Cook has been the voice of the University of Washington band for any football game where the entire band is performing, home, away and bowl games. Cook, 74, missed his first game in 55 years on Saturday. The school Cook was ill but did not provide any specifics.UP NEXT:Oregon State: The Beavers return home to host Washington State.Washington: The Huskies head to Salt Lake City for a showdown with No. 19 Utah.

It could not be tighter at the top of the Championship - heres Ian Holloways Bank Holiday Monday predictions. New Balance 998 . I cant remember a promotion race like this one involving three teams on the same points and nearly the same goal difference. Its unprecedented. Wouldnt it be amazing if it actually went to an end of season play-off? A play-off before the play-offs? We look at the permutations in a thrilling Championship promotion race Burnley have gone 21 games unbeaten, Brighton went 21 games unbeaten at the start and Middlesbrough had a spell where they didnt concede a goal for 11 games! Theyve all been outrageous. Im fearful for the team that misses out and theyll end up being disappointed going into the play-offs. When you tie this in with Leicester Citys story in the Premier League, its been one of the best seasons ever. Brighton v Derby, Sky Sports 1, Monday, 2.15pmMonday will be a weird day of work for me. Im at Burnley, but its a double header so well be watching this game from the Turf Moor studio. It will be interesting to see the atmosphere change, depending on what Brighton do.What can you say about Brighton? They are just phenomenal. To win seven of their last eight games under this sort of pressure is quite astonishing. Highlights from the Sky Bet Championship between Charlton and Brighton Derby are safe in the play-offs now and I dont think the urge to finish fourth instead of fifth will be a great enough incentive for them to raise their game against Brighton, who will be pumped for this. Dale Stephens has had an outstanding season. Hes a proper player. Hes box-to-box, puts his foot in and chips in with a few goals. Chris Hughton has found a brilliant midfield formula with him and Beram Kayal - its been one of the secrets behind their success. I think Stephens will get the winner.OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-0 (5/1 with Sky Bet) Burnley v QPR, Sky Sports 1, Monday, 4.30pmI cant see Burnley slipping up now. Burnley know its all about winning and going through the right processes. Their process is perfect in every department of their play. Theyve got goals and they are brilliantly well organised without the ball. Burnley have the full package, including the right mentality - they dont get too emotional.  Highlights of the Championship match between Preston and Burnley QPR have only won four games away from home all season and they must have their eyes on next season. OLLIE PREDICTS: 3-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet) Walsall v Fleetwood, League One, Sky Sports 1, Monday, 12pmThis is going to be very tough for Fleetwood, as Walsall are having a tremendous season and are chasing down Burton for that final automatic spot. Home win.OLLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet) Ollies earlier predictions...Bolton v Hull, SaturdayI fear for Bolton. Theres a lot of changes going on there and the on-the-pitch stuff probably is taking a back seat as they plan for next season. The club have a huge job on their hands to rebuild. Hull seem in a good place now after a good win in midweek. Theyll be looking to just keep things ticking over in the next few weeks. Abel Hernandez looks a good shout for the opening goal - hes hit a bit of a purple patch. OLLIE PREDICTED: 0-2Sheffield Wednesday v Cardiff, SaturdayCardiff need to approach this game like a play-off second leg. They must win to keep their season alive. I thought Sheffield Wednesday had completed the job last weekend, but Darren Bents late goal has kept open the door. I love Sheffield Wednesdays manager Carlos Carvalhal. He talks sense and has a clear plan about where he wants them to go. He seems supremely confident in his teams ability. He made the point that they have two chances to seal the final play-off spot and Cardiff just have one. Russell Slades side will have a right go, but Wednesday will come out on top. OLLIE PREDICTED: 3-2Ipswich v MK Dons, SaturdayI hope MK Dons keep the faith with Karl Robinson next season. He deserves it. Its so hard to move forward when youve sold your best players. The way they defend continues to worry me though. Ipswich should have enough to nick this one.I think Ipswich will do well to hold onto Mick McCarthy this summer. Someone with his credibility and know-how will be hot property.OLLIE PREDICTED: 2-0Rotherham v Blackburn, SaturdayI just want to wish Neil Warnock and his wife Sharon all the best. I read that shes been suffering with breast cancer over the last six months. It just proves what a man Neil is and what a strong relationship he has with Sharon. He would have had to ask permission off her to take the Rotherham job, so she deserves huge credit for giving him the green light. Shes obviously the boss!Everybody is different, but having a strong woman behind you has been vital in my career. There is so much insecurity with football management and you dont need that at home. Rotherham can win this one as Blackburn have gone off the boil.OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-0Blackpool v Wigan, League OneThis would be the perfect time for the Blackpool players to give the home fans a performance they can be proud of. Its time they stepped up. I dont believe theyre going to go down, so this will be a home win. I hope people can forgive me for not using logic for this one - this is my heart speaking.        OLLIE PREDICTED: 1-0Birmingham v Middlesbrough, FridayIt was a bit of a slip-up for Middlesbrough against Ipswich, but they are a tough nut to crack. Having watched Birmingham a lot this season and the way theyre set up to hit on the break, this could be another banana skin for Aitor Karankas men. Hell be treating this as just another game, but it isnt - its a massive fixture, and emotions will be running high in that dressing room.Will they get the job done here? I think so, but only just. Theyve got such a strong bench - hes got a plethora of riches - and that might just be the difference in this game. A win would set us up for a blockbuster day on Monday, where Brighton and Burnley are both in action.OLLIE PREDICTED: 1-2 Also See: Championship table WATCH: Championship goals League One table Play Super 6 New Balance 574 Island Pack .

Utah, at 4-2 in the league, is the only other team that can catch the Colorado in the division.The Buffs, coming off a 20-10 victory over UCLA, visit struggling Arizona (2-7, 0-6) on Saturday night, beginning at 10 p.m. ET in Tucson, Ariz. The Wildcats are the last winless Pac-12 team in conference play and they have lost six in a row for the first time since 2004.We have to try to get that good feeling back. Now we have to try to make someone elses season bad, or at least put a dent in their season, Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said, talking about what motivates his team for the final three games.Thats all you have to do. And if youre a competitor, youll play.Colorado is looking to complete a worst-to-first finish in the South after placing last in each of Mike MacIntyres first three seasons. Colorado won only two Pac-12 games in the coachs first three seasons.The Buffaloes have already clinched a spot in a bowl game for the first time since 2007.Were always thinking Pac-12 champions, wide receiver Bryce Bobo said. Thats what we were thinking even before the season started.After playing last Thursday, CU had a couple extra days to prepare for Arizona, which lost 69-7 at Washington State on Saturday.The Wildcats allowed the Cougars to complete 47 of 52 passes, but Colorado takes a more balanced approach to offense and can attack on the ground or through the air.When the Buffs run for 100 or more yards in a game, they win. Colorado has rushed for 247, 260, 260, 263, 315, 224 and 144 yards in its victories, while being held to 64 and 96 in its two losses. Arizona, with a small front line and injuries at linebacker, are 97th nationally against the run, allowing 202.8 yards per game.Colorado running back Phillip Lindsay has 818 rushing yards, averaging 5.7 per carry.

They probably have some of the fastest wideouts in the league.Their quarterback is an experienced guy, and they do a good job up front. Theyve changed it a little bit over the last couple of years. Theyre more spread and theyll get them out wide more times, and theyre more up tempo.Arizona, which has scored just 31 points in the past three games, might be headed toward a return of Anu Solomon as the starting quarterback.Solomon missed six games because of a knee injury after the season-opener, but he played a couple of series two weeks ago in a loss to Stanford and played about half the game in relief of Brandon Dawkins on Saturday.Solomon, the starter in 2014 and 2015, completed 9 of 13 passes for 122 yards and a touchdown last week. He is the better passer; Dawkins the superior runner. Rodriguez said Monday hell play both against Colorado.Arizonas quarterbacks will be going against a Colorado defense that is 10th nationally in passing yards allowed (179.3) and features standouts such as cornerbacks Chidobe Awuzie and Ahkello Witherspoon, and safety Tedric Thompson.Arizona also will continue with converted wide receiver Samajie Grant at running back. He has started the past two games there because of attrition at the position. He has rushed 27 times for 141 yards in the past two weeks.The Buffs finish with home games against Washington State and Utah, two ranked teams who remain in the hunt for the conference title. Colorados November is off to a good start with a 1-0 record.We call these the gold games because this gets you gold, MacIntyre said. We want to keep moving in that direction. Were 1-0 in our gold games and we want to make it 2-0 if we can. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' ' 

MADRID, Spain -- Francisco "Isco" Alarcon delighted the several hundred Real Madrid fans with a solo display of ball control at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Wednesday. Saucony Shadow Original . Madrid officials believe hell be a great team player, too. "Isco has what it takes to satisfy a club as immensely demanding as Real Madrid," club president Florentino Perez said at the 21-year-old midfielders presentation. "We believe in you and your talent." Iscos transfer from Malaga was completed last week, and his five-year contract was finalized after a medical exam. Perez praised Isco as one of the most creative and imaginative talents to emerge recently from Spains youth teams. He said Isco received positive appraisals from experts around the world for his performances for Spain under-21s. Isco also has one senior cap, appearing in a friendly against Uruguay in February in Qatar. "This is your house, welcome to Real Madrid," Perez said as he handed Isco a No. 23 shirt with his name on it. Ten years ago to the day, David Beckham was presented with the No. 23 shirt by Madrid great Alfredo Di Stefano when the former England captain joined the club. "We all know Beckham is a great player and he was presented 10 years ago on todays date with the same number, but I chose this number because its my brothers birthdate," Isco said. Isco helped Malaga reach the Champions League quarterfinals last season and guided Spain to the European Under-21 title this summer. He will have to vie with other attacking midfielders in Madrids star-studded dressing room, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil, and Luka Modric. There are also persistent media reports that talented but troubled Uruguay forward Luis Suarez might yet arrive at Madrid from Liverpool. Isco confirmed that he had received offers from other clubs, including Manchester City, where his former coach at Malaga, Manuel Pellegrini, is now in charge. "But its impossible to say no to Real Madrid and Im convinced I will find a spot in the squad, although I am aware that its not a slot thats going to be given away to me for free, Ill have to fight for it." "Pellegrini did want me, but when I saw that Madrids offer was serious, I decided," Isco said. "I told Pellegrini that it was impossible to say no to Madrid." Madrids new coach, Carlo Ancelotti, praised Isco at his own presentation last week. Isco said he was not fixed on staying an attacking midfielder if Ancelotti thought it best to place him elsewhere on the field. "I am adaptable and can play wherever the coach decides to place me," he said. Isco is Madrids second signing this off-season after it paid Bayer Leverkusen to recover right back Daniel Carvajal.

Jamie Redknapp is expecting an even but exciting Capital One Cup final on Sunday - and says the performances of Liverpools Philippe Coutinho and Man Citys David Silva will be decisive. Adidas Energy Boost 3 Soldes ... Liverpools 4-1 win over Manchester City earlier this season was their best performance under Jurgen Klopp so far. But theyll come up against a different City side in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley on Sunday. Jamie Redknapp joins Ed Chamberlin to preview the Capital One Cup final between Liverpool and Manchester City In November, Vincent Kompany didnt play. David Silva didnt play. Fernandinho didnt come on until half-time, when City were 3-0 down. Sergio Aguero was only half-fit, and substituted after 66 minutes. Now, this City side, in personnel at least, are starting to represent their best line-up again - albeit with the absence of Kevin De Bruyne, who was one of their best players in the Liverpool defeat.Of course, you dont have to be a football expert to realise the importance of Kompanys return. Theyve won 67 per cent of their games with him in the team. That figure drops to 59 per cent when he has been missing. City have kept seven clean sheets from nine Premier League games when he has started and managed just four in the 17 he has missed.If Kompany had been fit for the whole season, Man City would have been comfortably clear at the top of the Premier League. City have also got Silva starting to ease his way back into his game after injury. Aguero is fully fit now and looks incredible. Fernandinhos back. You look at the spine of that team and think, if they go on a long run - which theyre more than capable of doing - you cant really rule them out of anything this season.My biggest worry with City is they just go out and play, without worrying about the opposition. It often seems as though theres no defensive organisation or thought to stopping the other team from playing. Weve got better players, well beat you. But its not always like that in football. Philippe Coutinho ran the show at Man City in November, says Jamie Philippe Coutinho, in particular, is one player theyll have to have a plan for on Sunday.If youre Fernandinho or Yaya Toure, how are you going to stop him? He was a major problem for City at the Etihad, where they couldnt live with him. He ran the game. Key Battle: Aguero v Sturridge Which striker will deliver the Capital One Cup? Now Daniel Sturridge is back in the Liverpool team, too - a player who is always a threat - and he and Coutinho have a great understanding between them. City cant afford to let them combine like they can.Of course, the same goes for Liverpool - they need a plan to stop Citys main man, Silva. Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho have a great understanding between them. Man City cant afford to let them to combine like they can. Jamie Redknapp The Liverpool midfield have to find a way to hurry him up, stop him from playing at his pace and delivering those passes to Aguero. If they can do that, theyll stand a far better chance. But if Silva dominates the game, keeps finding pockets of space, drifting around the pitch, playing under no pressure, he can be the difference.Its going to be fascinating to see how the two teams deal with the other sides threats. Can Liverpool keep David Silva quiet? Overall, Im expecting an even but exciting game - and one certainly well worth watching.Of course, Klopp will be eager to pick up his first piece of silverware in England - and what a great moment lifting the trophy would be for him in his first season at Liverpool. Winning cup competitions is what Liverpools tradition has been built on and something the fans are desperate for. Jurgen Klopp and Manuel Pellegrini will both be desperate to lift the trophy As for Pellegrini, with this his last season at City, hell be looking to go out on a high, too, and win this competition for the second time in three years.Then there will be the battles all over the park - on top of Coutinho and Silvas clashes with the opposition midfield, Kompany versus Sturridge is going to be box office.And Raheem Sterling is also an intriguing sub-plot. Im sure images of him will be on the back pages of newspapers and at the top of websites on Monday regardless of the outcome - whether its him lifting the trophy or looking dejected while Liverpool fans celebrate. Sterling v Liverpool Paul Merson, Charlie Nicholas and Phil Thompson on whether Sterling can sink old club Liverpool He said he wanted to leave Anfield to win trophies and on Sunday he has the opportunity to do just that. Man City paid £49m for Sterling and these are the occasions when they need him to show up. If Liverpool win, hell undoubtedly get a lot of stick from their fans - but he has made his bed and he has to lie in it.But who will win? Im finding it really tough to call and reckon it could even be a draw in normal time. Then, once it gets to extra-time and penalties, anything could happen. Its one not to miss.  Jamies Sky Bet tip Find out what Jamie is backing in his 22/1 scorecast here.

North Melbourne ruck-forward Majak Daw admits he is under pressure to live up to his potential after the clubs exodus of senior players.The powerful big man has shown glimpses of talent in his four seasons with the Kangaroos but has struggled with injuries and inconsistent form, managing just 25 career games.Now injury-free and hopeful of getting a full pre-season under his belt, Daw is placing high expectations on himself.I want to have a big impact on the team, he said on Tuesday.Im 25, turning 26. Ive been at the club for a long time and I think I know the expectation.Being able to run out four-quarter efforts ... now I dont have any injuries and I can complete a full pre-season, thats the area Ill be looking to improve.Daw played just nine games this year but booted four goals in North Melbournes elimination final loss to Adelaide and was rewarded with a three-year contract.He is likely to receive more senior opportunities this season following the departure of forward stalwart Drew Petrie, who was axed by the Kangaroos on the eve of the finals alongside Brent Harrvey, Nick Dal Santo and Michael Firrito. Adidas NMD Runner Blanche. The veteran quartets controversial departure leaves plenty of onus on the less experienced Kangaroos to improve their performance after just scraping through to the finals this year.Therell be more opportunities for guys like me, Mason Wood, all these young guys that are coming through, Daw said.Its obviously going to be a differently-structured team but its only four guys that have left. Its a massive loss of experience but I think we all know what the expectation is and were a pretty competitive young group.The Kangaroos will soon vote on a new captain to replace Andrew Swallow, with midfielder Jack Ziebell expected to take the reins.Hes the most likely candidate and if he becomes captain, everyone will be so happy for him because hes such a young leader and hes been groomed for such a long time, Daw said.But weve got some really good young leaders at the club. Theres a few candidates. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' ' 

Sunrisers Hyderabad consolidated their place in the IPLs top four by crushing fellow play-off chasers Mumbai Indians by 85 runs in Visakhapatnam. New Balance 1600 Black . Sunrisers opened up a two-point lead over fourth-placed Delhi Daredevils and fifth-placed Mumbai with their win, in which Shikhar Dhawan clubbed an unbeaten 82 from 57 balls and Indians were skittled for 92, the lowest total this term.Opener Dhawans third fifty of the campaign steered Hyderabad to 177-3 from their 20 overs, a score that was never under threat due to excellent spells of seam bowling from Ashish Nehra (3-15) and Mustafizur Rahman (3-16).Dhawan has been outgunned by team-mate David Warner for much of the season and was again early on against Mumbai, with the Australian, only behind Bangalores Virat Kohli in this terms run-scorers list, cracking a 33-ball 48.Sunrisers charge stalled after Warner chipped Harbhajan Singh (2-29) to long-off in the 10th over with the score on 85, the visitors notching just 17 runs across the next four overs and having Kane Williamson (2) caught off Harbhajan. Yuvraj Singhs enterprising knock came to an odd end Yuvraj Singh and Dhawan, however, blasted 75 from the last six, with Yuvraj (39 from 23) spanking two sixes before he comically hit his wicket during the final over.Mumbais reply began dreadfully as they slumped to 5-2 and 30-5, with Nehra bowling Rohit Sharma (5), forcing Ambati Rayudu (6) to loop to backward point and having Jos Buttler (2) caught by a diving Naman Ojha behind the stumps.Sharmas men never recovered, with Mustafizurs disposal of the lower order seeing Indians - who headed into the contest on a three-game winning streak - dismissed in 16.3 overs, Harbhajan top scoring with 21 not out.Watch each and every IPL game, live on Sky Sports.

New Balance 996 Grey Gold . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. . JOHNS, N. NEW YORK -- If Steven Matz pitches again for the Mets this season -- and thats no certainty -- he will be making his first career relief appearance.Matz is 9-8 with a 3.40 ERA but hasnt pitched since Aug. 14 because of a shoulder impingement. He rehabbed the shoulder and was ramping up to make a possible start earlier this week, but Matz felt pain again after throwing the bullpen session that would precede the outing.The club hasnt shut down Matz yet. They sent him for a medical exam on Friday, hoping they can get some contribution from him before the end of the regular season or in a possible postseason appearance -- or both. But the window appears to have closed for him to build up to a starting assignment.Right now, if hes able to throw -- able to pitch -- maybe well put him in the pen and see if we can get him an inning here or an inning there to see how he reacts to it, manager Terry Collins said before the Mets squared off with the Phillies at Citi Field.Right now, where we are, today, youre looking at: weve got a spot starter today (Sean Gilmartin), [Robert] Gsellman tomorrow, whos one of our guys, and Im not sure where were going to get him in.All 28 of Matzs appearances have been starting assignments. Collins was asked if he had any hesitation to deploy the lefthander as a reliever, especially in a postseason setting.Youre talking about a playoff situation where we dont even know if he can pitch right now, Collins said. If he doesnt pitch at all, you certainly cant start him in the playoffs, so either he helps you now and gets some innnings out of the bullpen or he doesnt pitch at all. New Balance 990v4. ollins said he would have to give Matz a lot of notice before he entered a game as a reliever. The manager also said he would not be able to use Matz on consecutive days.In other Mets rotation news, Collins said Noah Syndergaard will return to the rotation Tuesday. The right-hander, who is 13-9 with a 2.63 ERA, had been scheduled to pitch Saturday but caught strep throat. He is being treated with antibiotics.Were looking at Monday or Tuesday. We arent really sure yet, which date. Theres obviously some things down the road we have to take a look at, Collins said, referring to a possible tiebreaker game or the National League wild-card game. A lot of it will be how he feels after coming today. [If] he feels a lot better today -- hes got some energy back after the pen -- well see how he feels. If it wears him down real fast or not.If you were as sick as he was for a couple of days, he might need the extra day, maybe not.Jacob deGroms stitches were on full display as the right-hander spoke for the first time since having season-ending surgery to reposition the ulnar nerve at his elbow.DeGrom said the doctor told him that surgery was the correct move and that the spot where the nerve was being compressed -- and causing numbness in his fingers -- was clear.The recovery period is three months and, when asked about spring training, deGrom said, I should be fine.
