  • Russell leads explosive Bears offense

    By The Associated Press | Updated: 7 hr ago

    Seth Russell threw for 376 yards with three of his five touchdowns to Jay Lee, and the new starting quarterback also ran for a score as fourth-ranked Baylor finally got back on the field with 56-21 victory at SMU on Friday night. The Bears got to start fresh after the long, long offseason that followed their playoff snub despite a second consecutive Big 12 Conference title, and then blowing a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter in a Cotton Bowl loss to Michigan State. Russell succeeded two-year starter Bryce Petty and the Bears kept rolling on offense, as has become usual under eighth-season coach Art Briles. Russell completed 15 of 30 passes and had a 4-yard TD run as Baylor had 723 total yards. They averaged 582

    Report: Jackson agrees to sign with Seahawks Fred Jackson and the Seattle Seahawks agreed to a one-year contract for the former longtime Bills running back, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. “He's been a very good pass-catcher and [an] adept pass protector,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said earlier this week. “He's always been a good runner. He's got great feel and sense. Had a big run in the game last week (a preseason win against the Pittsburgh Steelers). Had a 40-yard run in the game last week (against the Steelers) and scored a touchdown. But he's been a very adept pass-receiver, and I think that's something that maybe he could fit in.” Buffalo released Jackson and 11 other players Monday. The 34-year-old spent

It makes for must-see television in Blacksburg, Va.

  • McGuinness offense sharp in rout

    BY RICHARD STROUD For The Oklahoman | Published: Sat, Sep 5, 2015

    SHAWNEE — At least for one game, it looks like Bishop McGuinness has the offense to go with its stout defense. The Fighting Irish held Shawnee to a handful of first downs in the first half while scoring on four straight drives to open up a 24-point lead on their way to a 38-7 season-opening win over the Wolves at Jim Thorpe Stadium. Zach Segell ran for 103 yards in the first half for the Irish, including a 72-yard touchdown run that made it 31-0 with 2:47 left. Senior quarterback Jacob Mullins was sharp, completing 11 straight passes in the first half, finishing 12 of 15 for 160 yards and an 18-yard touchdown to Alec Minielly. In all, McGuinness had 271 yards in the first half.

    Serena Williams' comeback extends Grand Slam try Can't count out Serena Williams, no matter how big the deficit, no matter how off-target her strokes, no matter how much the pressure might be mounting as she bids for a calendar-year Grand Slam. Eight times this season at major tournaments, Williams has dropped the opening set. Eight times, she has won. The latest comeback was in the third round of the U.S. Open on Friday night, when Williams figured out a way to deal with a tricky opponent and get her own game going before it was too late, eventually emerging to grab the last eight games for a 3-6, 7-5, 6-0 victory over Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

    EDMOND — Jerome Bryson Jr. made sure he took extra time to stretch during pregame. With the memory of the hamstring issues that limited him on the field as a junior, he wanted to be ready Friday night when he took a handoff for Edmond Santa Fe. Bryson certainly was ready and he even stole the spotlight in the first Edlam game of the season at Wantland Stadium with three touchdowns in No. 8 Santa Fe's 28-9 win over Edmond North, which ultimately proved the Wolves have not only one powerful running back but two. “It felt great helping my team out,” Bryson said. “We've been working on it since freshman year and we're just trying to make it stronger and stronger every game and do our best.

    MUSTANG — An expertly used timeout by Mustang coach Jeremy Dombek just before halftime set up a momentum-swinging touchdown, and a moment Blake Williams will never forget. Dombek called timeout with two seconds left in the first half, and as Yukon's players jogged toward the locker room, referees called them back to the field for one more play. Mustang quarterback Chandler Garrett's pass to the end zone was tipped by a Yukon defender and caught by Williams — his long-awaited first high school touchdown that propelled Mustang to a 72-36 rout of its rival Friday night at Bronco Stadium.

    For months now, Oklahoma State's 2014 season promised the potential for a big bag of goodies, the payoff of mounting momentum and anticipated growth within a young roster. The first impression, delivered Thursday night at Central Michigan: a mixed bag. A win, yet in scuffling style against a team picked for the middle of the MAC. Inconsistent offense. Elastic defense. So-so special teams. The Cowboys prevailed 24-13 in Mount Pleasant, even clamping down the verdict with a late burst of dominance. Still, questions — and complaints — emerged. Yet as with any mixed bag, there were answers, too, some of them positive. A look at five key things

Berryhill, 51, is in his second season managing the Dodgers' Triple-A team. OKC currently leads the PCL with an 85-56 record. OKC will travel to Round Rock on Wednesday to open the playoffs. The Dodgers return for the final three games of the best-of-5 series Friday, Sept. 11. Game 4 and Game 5 will only be played if necessary. Berryhill certainly earned the honor as the Dodgers used their 24th starting pitcher of the season Friday with Chris Anderson taking the mound against Memphis.
