  • Maryland overpowered 52-7 by Wisconsin

    Updated: 3 hr ago

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Maryland coach Randy Edsall spoke briefly and got right to the point. There wasn't really much to analyze after the Terrapins got overpowered 52-7 on Saturday by Wisconsin. "We didn't play well. We didn't coach well, you know — bottom line," Edsall said. Melvin Gordon rushed for 122 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries, and Wisconsin's restocked defense stifled mistake-prone Maryland on homecoming weekend. Gordon had his three scores in the first half, when the Badgers (5-2, 2-1 Big Ten) raced out to a 24-0 halftime lead. Joel Stave threw for two scores in the second half. The Big Ten rookie Terrapins (5-3, 2-2) will likely want to forget about their disastrous first visit to Cam

    NEW HAVEN, Conn.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Six-foot-3 nose guard Warren Herring stood tall at the line of scrimmage. Linebacker Marcus Trotter could not stop smiling after the game. Whole again with their two senior starters back from injuries, Wisconsin's defense put together a dominating performance on homecoming weekend at Camp Randall Stadium. Melvin Gordon rushed for 122 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries, and the Badgers' restocked defense stifled mistake-prone Maryland for a 52-7 win on Saturday.

    Updated: 4 hr ago

    MILAN (AP) — Roma was held to a goalless draw at still-unbeaten Sampdoria as it missed the opportunity to move provisionally top of the Serie A table on Saturday. It was a case of second against third at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris but Roma was still reeling from Tuesday's 7-1 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Roma went closest with Gervinho hitting the post on the half hour mark and Alessandro Florenzi forcing a remarkable save from Sampdoria goalkeeper Sergio Romero late on. Samp did have the ball in the back of the net but Manolo Gabbiadini's strike was ruled out for offside. Roma youth product Stefano Okaka also missed a good opportunity for Samp as he blasted over from about three yards out.

Wallace's win Saturday at Martinsville Speedway came a year after he became the first black driver to win a national NASCAR race since Scott in 1963. Kyle Busch Motorsports changed the number of Wallace's Toyota truck on Saturday from No. 54 to No. 34 to honor Scott, the NASCAR pioneer who will be posthumously inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in January.

    ANNAPOLIS, Md.

Reynolds missed Navy's previous game on Oct. 11 with knee and shoulder injuries. After resting during a bye, the junior put on a performance that earned him a place in the school record book. Reynolds' three touchdowns gave him 52 for his career, breaking the Navy mark of 49 held by Ricky Dobbs (2008-10). Ten of Reynolds' TDs have come against San Jose State, including seven last year in a 58-52 overtime win. Joe Gray went 33 for 46 for 322 yards and three touchdowns for San Jose State (3-4).

A week after losing big at Ohio State, the Scarlet Knights lost 42-24 at No. 16 Nebraska on Saturday and head into next week's game against Wisconsin with questions at quarterback. Gary Nova injured his right knee when he landed hard while getting tackled on the second-to-last play of the first half. Redshirt freshman Chris Laviano played the rest of the game. "We're disappointed that we're 0-2 if you look at it from a two-game perspective," said Flood, whose team was outscored 98-41 by the Buckeyes and Cornhuskers. "I think we've come out of it a bet

    Updated: 4 hr ago

    MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Charlie Strong knows there is bound to be some inconsistencies in his first year at Texas. Putting up 48 points one week and getting shut out the next? That surprised even him. "We've got to play a complete game," Strong said shortly after the Longhorns lost 23-0 to No. 11 Kansas State on Saturday. "One week it's the offense, one week it's the defense and one week it's the special teams. All three phases have to play well. That's the only way we're going to win." Texas failed to score twice in the red zone, went 4 for 14 on third and fourth downs, and wound up with its first shutout loss since falling to Oklahoma 12-0 on Oct. 9, 2004.
