PRESCOTT THROWS 2 TDS, BLAND TIES NFL RECORD WITH 4TH PICK-6 IN COWBOYS’ 33-10 ROUT OF PANTHERS
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Dak Prescott felt the main goal coming into Sunday’s game was not to overlook the NFL’s worst team.
He and DaRon Bland made sure the Cowboys didn’t.
Prescott threw for 189 yards and two touchdowns, Bland tied an NFL record with his fourth pick-6 of the season and Dallas, a 10 1/2-point favorite, routed the Carolina Panthers 33-10 Sunday for their fourth win in the last five games.
“It was about focusing on where we were and, if you look on paper, a lesser opponent,” Prescott said. “… So we had to get going fast and not take them lightly and keep the focus high. And, yeah, we got the job done.”
Bland made a diving interception of Bryce Young near the sideline early in the fourth quarter, got up and raced 30 yards for a touchdown for a 30-10 lead. He tied a record shared by Philadelphia’s Eric Allen (1993), Kansas City’s Jim Kearney (1972) and Houston’s Ken Houston (1971).
“When I got up, I was like, ‘I gotta go. I gotta get a spot in the end zone again,’” Bland said with a wide smile.
He called this his best touchdown return yet because it was his most athletic, having to elude players en route to the end zone.
Bland is tied for second on the team in touchdowns, something that doesn’t often happen for a cornerback in the NFL, particularly on a team with an offense as explosive as the Cowboys.
“That’s crazy when you think about it,” Bland said. “I’m going to try to break the record now.”
Tony Pollard ran for 61 yards and a touchdown, and CeeDee Lamb found the end zone again for his fifth score of the season for Dallas (7-3) in front of a predominantly pro-Cowboys crowd.
Young finished 16 of 29 for 123 yards, and the No. 1 draft pick threw his third pick-6 in the last three games. He also fumbled. The Panthers (1-9) are assured their sixth straight losing season since David Tepper took over as owner in 2018.
“Not getting the results you want is frustrating,” Panthers coach Frank Reich said. “So I’m frustrated most of all for (our coaches and players), but I’m frustrated for our fans as well. … You want change to happen overnight, but sometimes it takes longer than you want.
“But you have to keep your head down and be strong-willed and keep your vision every day and be able to fight your way through the tough times.”
The Cowboys sacked Young seven times and limited the Panthers to 187 yards and 13 first downs in the first game since Reich resumed control of play-calling duties.
“We felt confident we’d get a pass rush going,” said Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy of facing the Panthers, who have allowed 39 sacks in 10 games.
The Cowboys have averaged 33.6 points over the last five games, and Prescott entered Sunday with three straight games with at least 300 yards passing and three TDs. Dallas didn’t need his aerial exploits, as Pollard ran the ball well and the defense did the rest against a lackluster Carolina offense.
The final two minutes of the first half served was a microcosm of Carolina’s mistake-plagued season.
After Carolina cut Dallas’ lead to 10-3, Eddy Pineiro sent the ensuing kickoff out of bounds, giving the Cowboys the ball at their own 40.
Carolina’s defense had two chances to get off the field, but the Panthers were twice flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct resulting in 30 penalty yards and two Dallas first downs. The first came when Amare Barno hit a sliding Prescott several yards short of the first down marker on a third down run. A few plays later, DeShawn Williams pushed Dallas’ KaVontae Turpin in the back after an apparent third down stop.
Prescott made the Panthers pay with a 5-yard TD pass in the corner of the end zone to Lamb, giving Dallas a 17-3 lead heading into the locker room.
The Panthers got back into the game in the third quarter after Young converted three straight fourth downs, two of those on completions to Adam Thielen. The drive culminated in a 4-yard TD pass from Young to Tommy Tremble, only the third Carolina offensive touchdown in the last four games.
But Dallas answered immediately with a eight-play, 75-yard drive capped by a 21-yard touchdown burst from Pollard – his first score since Week 1 – to make it a 14-point game early in the fourth quarter.
“I’m happy for my man,” Lamb said of his Pollard’s long-awaited TD run. “I told him we were going to spring him. The O-line did a great job of course making way for him and he did a great job of hitting the hole. It’s good to see his explosiveness back in action.”
No injuries reported.
Cowboys: Host Washington on Thanksgiving day.
Panthers: Visit Tennessee on Sunday.
ROOKIE QB DORIAN THOMPSON-ROBINSON RALLIES BROWNS TO A LAST-SECOND 13-10 WIN OVER STEELERS
CLEVELAND (AP) Dustin Hopkins kicked a 34-yard field goal with 2 seconds left after Cleveland rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson completed four straight clutch passes, giving the Browns a 13-10 win Sunday over the rival Pittsburgh Steelers.
Making just his second NFL start, Thompson-Robinson rallied the Browns (7-3) just days after Deshaun Watson was lost for the season with a shoulder injury.
With the crowd chanting “D-T-R!” and Watson watching from Cleveland’s sideline in sweats, Thompson-Robinson, a fifth-round pick from UCLA, calmly completed his four passes for 39 yards to set up Hopkins.
Last week, Hopkins kicked a 40-yard field goal as timed expired to beat Baltimore 33-31.
The Browns have now beaten the Ravens and Steelers (6-4) in consecutive weeks for the first time in 15 tries. And Thompson-Robinson’s performance, though at times raggedy, has given Cleveland hope this season can still be special without Watson.
The Steelers were outgained for the 10th straight week and couldn’t do much going against Cleveland’s top-ranked defense.
Steelers running back Jaylen Warren had a 74-yard TD run and finished with a career-high 129 yards.
Pittsburgh turned to its always reliable defense in the second half and did a nice job shutting down Thompson-Robinson until the final moments.
Cleveland took over at its own 35 with 1:18 left and the rookie QB completed passes of 15, 5, 8 and 11 yards to move the Browns to Pittsburgh’s 34. The Steelers were called for a neutral zone infraction, moving the ball closer for Hopkins’ winner.
This was a rare loss in a close game for the Steelers, who had each of their past nine games decided by eight points or fewer, including six this season.
The second half turned into a battle of the defenses and field possession.
The Steelers inexplicably took Warren off the field for one series before he had two nice runs to set up Chris Boswell’s 28-yard field goal that tied it at 1 with 7:40 left.
After gaining just 64 yards in the first half, the Steelers picked up 74 on their second snap of the third quarter.
Warren took a quick pitch, made a cut on the right side, stepped through cornerback Greg Newsome II’s tackle attempt and outran all of Cleveland’s defenders for Pittsburgh’s longest play this season.
It was also the Steelers’ longest run since 2014.
Myles Garrett set the tone for Cleveland’s defens e, sacking Kenny Pickett on Pittsburgh’s first play and dropping him in the end zone for an apparent safety. However, the officials ruled the Steelers QB’s forward progress was at the 1, and Browns coach Kevin Stefanski was too late in challenging the call.
Stefanski was quicker with his flag a few minutes later, getting Jerome Ford’s short run from th e 1 changed from a goal-line stop to a touchdown.
Browns star running back Nick Chubb, who suffered a season-ending in Week 2 at Pittsburgh, was introduced before the game.
Chubb took a few steps out of the tunnel on crutches and acknowledged the roaring crowd. The four-time Pro Bowler had surgery on his ACL this week. The Browns expect him back at some point in the 2024 season.
The Browns will add a third quarterback in the next few days, and there’s a strong chance it will be veteran Joe Flacco, who worked out for the team on Friday.
The 38-year-old Flacco would give Cleveland an experienced QB to either start or serve as a mentor for Thompson-Robinson. Flacco went 17-3 in his career against the Browns when he was with Baltimore and helped the New York Jets pull off a stunning win in Cleveland last season
Steelers: Pittsburgh’s safety situation got more precarious after Elijah Riley (ankle) went out in the third quarter. The Steelers were already without safeties Minkah Fitzpatrick (hamstring) and Keanu Neal (rib).
Browns: LB Anthony Walker Jr. (hamstring) left early in the second quarter after getting hurt in punt coverage. Walker threw his helmet in frustration before walking to the locker room. … S Rodney McLeod (biceps) got hurt in the second half and didn’t return.
Steelers: At Cincinnati on Nov. 26.
Browns: At Denver on Nov. 26 in the first of two straight road games.
NFC NORTH-LEADING LIONS RALLY FROM 12-POINT DEFICIT LATE TO BEAT BEARS 31-26 ON MONTGOMERY’S TD RUN
DETROIT (AP) David Montgomery’s go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run with 29 seconds left against his former team lifted the Detroit Lions to a 31-26 comeback victory over Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
The NFC North-leading Lions (8-2) overcame four turnovers, including Jared Goff’s season-high three interceptions, and a 12-point deficit over the last 3:06 to rally for the win.
Detroit has its best record through 10 games since 1962, giving the franchise a shot to win a division title for the first time in three decades.
The Bears (3-8) blew chances to win consecutive games for the first time in nearly two years.
Fields mostly played well in his first game in a month, but slightly overthrew Tyler Scott on a deep pass late in the game. He also fumbled on his last snap when Aidan Hutchinson sacked him and the football went out of the end zone for a safety.
Fields, who was out with a dislocated right thumb, threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to DJ Moore late in the third quarter. Cairo Santos made two of his four field goals in the fourth quarter to give the Bears a 26-14 lead with 4:15 remaining.
The Lions responded quickly to Chicago’s last score, cutting their deficit to 26-21 on Goff’s 32-yard touchdown pass to Jameson Williams. They drove down the field easily on the winning drive capped by Montgomery’s short touchdown run.
Goff bounced back from a shaky start to complete 23 of 35 passes for 236 yards, including a 7-yard pass to Amon-Ra St. Brown that gave the Lions a 14-10 lead with 11 seconds left in the first half. He threw more than two interceptions for the first time since 2019 when he played for the Los Angeles Rams.
St. Brown had eight catches for 77 yards. Montgomery ran for 76 yards on 12 carries.
Fields matched a career high with 18 carries and had 104 yards rushing. He was 16 of 23 for 169 yards with a touchdown. Moore finished with seven receptions for 96 yards.
FACE IN THE CROWD
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell attended the game and was booed when introduced to the crowd by the public-address announcer during a timeout.
Bears: D’Onta Foreman (ankle) and C Lucas Patrick (back) were hurt during the game. Foreman ran for a 1-yard touchdown on the opening drive
Lions: OG Jonah Jackson (wrist, ankle) was inactive one week after he played for the first time in a month.
Bears: Play at Minnesota on Monday, Nov. 27.
Lions: Host Green Bay on Thursday.
JORDAN LOVE’S LATE TD PASS LIFTS PACKERS TO 23-20 VICTORY OVER CHARGERS
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) With Green Bay down to one healthy running back, Jordan Love realized the Packers’ hopes likely rested on his right arm.
The first-year starting quarterback responded with the best performance of his young career.
Love threw for 322 yards and found Romeo Doubs for a 24-yard touchdown with 2:33 left to give Green Bay a 23-20 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. It was a milestone rally for a young Packers team that continually had come up just short late in games this season.
“That’s always in the back of my head, just the past experiences that we’ve had, being in this situation and not capitalizing,” Love said. “Our message was just, ‘Go finish. Go compete. And go be great.’ I think we did that.”
Love went 27 of 40 and became the first Packer to throw for more than 300 yards since Aaron Rodgers had a 341-yard day against the Chicago Bears on Dec. 12, 2021.
“I wasn’t aware of that,” Love said. “That’s a pretty crazy stat, to be honest.”
Both teams have struggled in close games.
Four of the Packers’ six losses have been decided by a total of 11 points. Five of the Chargers’ six defeats have a combined margin of 14 points.
“It’s tough, bro,” Chargers safety Derwin James said. “Like I said, we’re playing hard. It’s tough. We’re one or two plays away. I say you’ve got to find a way to get it done.”
Chargers coach Brandon Staley bristled when asked again after the game whether he’s considered giving up the defensive play-calling responsibilities.
“I have full confidence in our way of playing,” Staley said. “Full confidence in myself as the play-caller and the way that we teach and the way that we scheme. Full confidence in that. We’ve got to bring this group together and do it consistently, and that’s where it’s at. You can stop asking that question. I’m going to be calling the defenses, so we’re clear. So you don’t have to ask that again.”
Both teams suffered significant injuries.
Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa was carted off the field with a foot injury on the game’s opening series. Packers running backs Aaron Jones and Emanuel Wilson were carted off the field late in the second quarter, leaving AJ Dillon as Green Bay’s only ball carrier.
Staley had no update on Bosa’s condition after the game. Jones said initial reports regarding his anterior cruciate ligament were positive, though he was awaiting an MRI.
“I was feeling like, ‘Man I can’t catch a break,’” Jones said. “But caught a break. Hopefully it’s not anything serious and I’m back here pretty soon.”
Justin Herbert threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Keenan Allen on third-and-9 to give the Chargers a 20-16 lead with 5:24 remaining. The Packers (4-6) answered on their next series, getting a boost when Los Angeles’ Asante Samuel Jr. was called for pass interference on a third-and-20 incompletion.
Two plays later, Love found Dontayvion Wicks for a 35-yard gain. Doubs made his touchdown catch two plays after that, snaring the ball as cornerback Michael Davis tried to break up the pass.
Love’s other touchdown pass was an 11-yarder to Christian Watson with 4 seconds left in the third quarter.
“He showed great poise,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said. “I think he showed that all game long.”
The Chargers had a final chance when they got the ball at their own 20 with no timeouts and less than 1 1/2 minutes left. Kenny Clark batted down a pass by Herbert on fourth-and-1 from the Los Angeles 35 to put the game away.
One play earlier, Quentin Johnston had his arms outstretched but couldn’t hang onto a pass around the Green Bay 35.
Herbert was 21 of 36 for 260 yards with two touchdowns. He connected with Stone Smartt for a 51-yard score in the second quarter, less than three minutes after Green Bay’s Jayden Reed scored on a 32-yard rush.
The Chargers entered the day ranked second in the NFL in red-zone touchdown percentage, but they totaled six points on their first three trips inside the 10. Two of those possessions ended in short field goals and the third with a lost fumble by Austin Ekeler.
The Chargers trailed 16-13 and had second-and-goal from the 2 early in the fourth quarter when Ekeler took a handoff, fell down, got back up and lost the ball. Clark forced the fumble that Rashan Gary recovered.
“We had plenty of opportunities today and just didn’t capitalize on enough of them to finish the game,” Staley said. “This is a tough one.”
The Chargers lost LB Tanner Muse to a knee problem. … For the Packers, TE Josiah Deguara left with a hip issue and WR Dontayvion Wicks was evaluated for a concussion.
Chargers: Host Baltimore next Sunday night.
Packers: Visit Detroit on Thanksgiving Day.
C.J. STROUD LEADS TEXANS TO 21-16 WIN OVER CARDINALS DESPITE THROWING SEASON-HIGH 3 INTERCEPTIONS
HOUSTON (AP) C.J. Stroud was asked if he’d think twice about making certain throws after he was intercepted a season-high three times in Houston’s win over Arizona.
“Steph Curry don’t ever stop shooting, you know, I mean,” the Texans’ standout rookie said. “I don’t have no shame in my game. I’ve definitely got to be smarter, but no confidence is taken away from me and I’m going to keep letting it fly.”
Stroud threw for 336 yards with two touchdowns, and the Texans overcame his mistakes to beat the Cardinals 21-16 on Sunday.
“You’re going to have miscues, you’re going to have bad plays, but it’s all about how you respond to those plays,” coach DeMeco Ryans said. “So we will continue to highlight all the positive things that C.J. is doing. And then we’ll also coach him up on those negative plays.”
Stroud’s 2,962 yards passing are the fourth-most ever in a player’s first 10 games, and he joined Joe Burrow as the only rookies in NFL history with 300 or more yards passing in three consecutive games.
The Texans (6-4) have doubled their win total from last season and have won three games in a row for the first time since a nine-game streak in 2018.
Stroud was asked about the team exceeding expectations.
“It’s not about what everybody else thinks or what they thought we were going to be at this point,” he said. “It’s about what we go and put on that field.”
The Cardinals (2-9) had a chance to win late. Kyler Murray threw a deep pass on fourth-and-8 that was intended for Marquise Brown, but Steven Nelson batted it down with 35 seconds left.
Houston didn’t score after halftime and Stroud was picked off on consecutive drives in the fourth quarter. He had thrown just two interceptions in his first nine games.
Houston’s Tank Dell had a season-high 149 yards on eight receptions and set a franchise rookie record with his sixth touchdown catch.
Murray threw for 214 yards with a touchdown and an interception in his second game back after recovering from a torn ACL. He also rushed for 51 yards and a score.
“The defense did what they needed to do, and we didn’t hold up our end of the bargain,” Murray said. “That’s frustrating. I feel like we had too many opportunities not to win the game.”
Murray said he felt like he let the team down.
“We did some good, but there are no moral victories,” he said. “It’s just frustrating.”
So, is there any optimism for these Cardinals, who are tied with New England for the second-fewest wins in the NFL?
“Not right now,” Murray said.
The Cardinals failed to convert on fourth down at the Houston 45 with about 7 1/2 minutes to go. But Stroud was intercepted again on the ensuing drive when Antonio Hamilton Sr. hopped in front of Dell.
Murray scored on a 1-yard run with about three minutes left in the third quarter to get the Cardinals within 21-16, but his run for the 2-point conversion was short.
The Cardinals were stopped on fourth-and-3 from the Houston 23 early in the fourth quarter. After a Houston punt, the Cardinals fumbled on the return and the Texans recovered at the Arizona 31.
Stroud was then intercepted in the end zone by Krys Barnes.
Stroud got a pass off under heavy pressure and found Dell in the end zone for a 40-yard touchdown that made it 21-10 just before halftime.
“We just worked on that drill at practice – the scramble drill,” Dell said. “Basically like backyard football.”
Dell leaped into the crowd and was pulled into the stands where he stood among a group of cheering fans for a few seconds before returning to the field.
Soon, chants of “M-V-P! M-V-P!” rained down on Stroud, who has completely transformed this team just 10 games into his career.
The Cardinals took an early lead when Rondale Moore caught a 48-yard touchdown pass on their first drive.
Houston tied it when Stroud connected with Dalton Schultz on a 20-yard TD pass with about six minutes left in the first quarter.
Matt Prater’s 57-yard field goal put Arizona ahead again.
An 11-yard run by Devin Singletary gave Houston a 14-10 lead early in the second quarter. After the score, Stroud mimicked taking photos while the rest of the offense posed in the end zone.
Cardinals LB Kyzir White injured an elbow in the second quarter. … NT Leki Fotu left with a hand injury in the second quarter. … Hamilton injured his groin on the interception and was carted to the locker room.
Cardinals: Host the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday.
Texans: Host Jacksonville next Sunday.
JAGUARS BOUNCE BACK FROM EMBARRASSING LOSS WITH 34-14 DRUBBING OF AFC SOUTH RIVAL TITANS
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Trevor Lawrence insisted all week that he had no concerns about Jacksonville’s sluggish offense.
He promised it would get better. He vowed to do his part. He even expected a quick turnaround against Tennessee.
Few people could have imagined this, though.
Lawrence accounted for four touchdowns, including two perfectly thrown passes to Calvin Ridley, and the Jaguars followed their worst loss of the season with a 34-14 drubbing of the Titans on Sunday.
Ridley finished with seven catches for 103 yards, finding the end zone twice for the first time with the Jaguars (7-3) and doubling his TD total for the season. Lawrence also ran for two scores for the first time in three NFL seasons, becoming the first player in franchise history with two TD passes and two rushing scores in the same game.
Lawrence completed 24 of 32 passes for 262 yards, finishing with the fourth-best passer rating (119.5) of his career after the third-lowest outing against the 49ers.
“That’s one of the cleaner games offensively we’ve played,” Lawrence said. “Seemed like we stayed on schedule, seemed like we kept them on their heels. We did a great job of mixing up all the different shots, getting it out quick, running the ball movements, all that.”
Ridley took it a step further, saying the team’s performance was weeks in the making and a potential sign of things to come.
“We know we’re an explosive offense,” he said. “It takes time. Sometimes it takes three, four years. It don’t just pop, pop, pop. I promise you we can pop. We can pop good. We can. We wanted it.”
Jacksonville scored on five consecutive possessions and finished with 389 yards. The game would have been more lopsided had Lawrence and Co. not had to settle for two red zone field goals.
It was a much-needed performance for a team that had lost three of four at home and was embarrassed by San Francisco a week earlier.
Tennessee (3-7) had been looking for a similar rebound. Instead, the Titans encountered more road woes in their return to the Sunshine State.
Coming off a 14-point loss at Tampa Bay, Tennessee fell to 0-6 away from home this season and has yet to top 16 points in any road game. Coach Mike Vrabel’s teams have now lost nine in a row outside Nashville.
“When you lose, nobody did enough,” Vrabel said. “We’re not going to have that mentality, ‘Well, this guy played good, but we lost.’ We’re trying to create a culture and an environment that when you lose everyone has to be better.”
Rookie Will Levis completed 13 of 17 passes for 158 yards, with two touchdowns and a fumble.
Both scores came with a little trickery and with the game out of reach. He connected with DeAndre Hopkins for a 43-yard score in the third quarter and found two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons for a 2-yard score in the fourth.
Derrick Henry took a direct snap, handed to a receiver, who pitched to Levis, who then found Hopkins deep.
Simmons slipped out into the flat after lining up as a fullback, a play that worked earlier with him blocking for Henry.
Simmons celebrated his first career touchdown by doing the “Griddy” and then spiking the ball.
“For professionals, I think we all have a good mindset of just moving on and learn from mistakes,” Levis said.
VRABEL’S JOB SECURITY
Vrabel brushed off a question about his job security after the Titans lost for the 14th time in 17 games.
“I don’t try to concern myself with that,” he said. “I really am focused on these players. I hurt for them. I played 14 years, won some games, won some championships. I am frustrated for players. I am disappointed for players. I want them to have success.”
Titans right tackle Chris Hubbard (elbow) was ruled out at halftime. Backup safeties K’Von Wallace (concussion protocol) and Terrell Edmunds (shoulder) left the game in the second half.
Titans host Carolina next Sunday.
Jaguars play at Houston next Sunday.
JALEN RAMSEY MAKES GAME-SEALING INTERCEPTION, DOLPHINS OVERCOME 3 TURNOVERS TO BEAT RAIDERS 20-13
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Jalen Ramsey had his Miami teammates – even highlight-machine Tyreek Hill – in awe with his game-sealing interception Sunday.
Ramsey jumped with both arms stretched over is body and came down in the end zone with an interception of Aidan O’Connell with 22 seconds left, helping the Dolphins stifle the Las Vegas Raiders’ fourth-quarter comeback and overcome three turnovers for a 20-13 win.
“He’s the best corner in the league, man,” Hill said. “The way he laid out for that last pass just goes to show how much he cares about this team. A lot of guys, they’ll knock it down, they’ll say, ‘Ah, I could land weird.’ The way he just laid out for his team just really shows how he cares about his brothers.”
Ramsey also intercepted the Raiders rookie quarterback earlier in the game. He has three takeaways in three games with Miami after missing the first seven with a knee injury.
“I do feel great, I’ve put in a lot of hard work,” Ramsey said. “At the same time, the only way to get ready for football and be really in football shape and feel like the guy that I am is to play more football, and this is only my third game. Techinically, I’m just now in my training camp, preseason, really.”
Tua Tagovailoa was 28 of 39 with 325 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for Miami. He also lost his third fumble of the season on a scramble on the Dolphins’ opening drive. Hill caught his league-leading eighth touchdown of the season and had 146 yards on 10 catches.
Salvon Ahmed caught Tagovailoa’s other touchdown, an 11-yard score in the second quarter.
O’Connell, who finished 24 of 41 with 271 yards and three interceptions, also threw a pick on Las Vegas’ penultimate drive.
With his team down 7, O’Connell dropped back to pass on fourth down at Miami’s 38 when defensive tackle Christian Wilkins wrapped him up. O’Connell tried to force up a pass, and Jaelan Phillips came up with the ball for his first career interception.
“I’m learning how hard the NFL is and how hard it is to win,” O’Connell said. “Kudos to our defense. They played so well in the second half. Kept us in the game. It comes down to our offense. Be better all around, and it starts with me.”
With 10:55 left, the Raiders got the ball at the 50 after a Dolphins punt but ended up turning the ball over on downs after a deep pass from O’Connell to Tucker on second-and-17 that was originally ruled a catch was overturned.
Las Vegas (5-6) had a two-game winning streak snapped, and the victory by Miami (7-3) strengthened its hold atop the AFC East.
“The job’s not done,” Tagovailoa said, “there’s nothing accomplished being 7-3.”
On the Raiders’ opening drive, Miami linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel punched the ball out of the hands of rookie tight end Michael Mayer for what was originally called a fumble returned by safety Jevon Holland for a Dolphins touchdown. Officials overturned it to an incomplete pass after a short review, but the play forced a Las Vegas punt.
On the next drive, Luke Masterson jarred the ball loose from Tagovailoa’s grip on a third down scramble deep in Dolphins’ territory. Miami’s defense then held the Raiders to a field goal, which Daniel Carlson nailed from 34 yards for a 3-0 lead.
The sequence repeated itself late in the first half. Dolphins rookie tight end Julian Hill, on just his second catch of the year, fumbled at Miami’s 32, and it was recovered by Divine Deablo. Miami’s defense, which entered allowing fewer than 17 points in two straight outings, held again and forced a 47-yard field goal by Carlson. The Dolphins took a 14-13 lead into the half.
The Raiders had little offense for much of the game outside of Davante Adams, who finished with 82 yards receiving, including a 46-yard touchdown.
The Dolphins finished with 422 yards of offense despite scoring their fewest points at home all year, but they remain undefeated at home this season thanks to a defensive unit that held its opponent scoreless for the second straight game.
“I like when they score 70 a lot more,” said Phillips, who had two sacks, two tackles for loss and three quarterback hits. “Today we scored 20 and they scored 13 and we won. Our defense had confidence in each other, no matter what the score was, we had the lead and we were going to keep it.”
Raiders: S Marcus Epps left in the second quarter with a neck injury and did not return.
Dolphins: RB De’Von Achane, who returned after missing the past four games with a knee injury, exited after Miami’s second drive with a knee injury and did not return. … Hill went to the locker room briefly in the second quarter. He looked to be holding his right hand/wrist but only missed one series.
Raiders: Host the Chiefs next Sunday.
Dolphins: At New York Jets next Friday, the first time the NFL has scheduled a game for the day after Thanksgiving.
HOWELL HAS 3 INTERCEPTIONS AMONG 6 COMMANDERS TURNOVERS IN THEIR 31-19 LOSS TO THE LAST-PLACE GIANTS
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) Ron Rivera walked back into the locker room, saw Sam Howell sitting at his locker with his head down and asked the young quarterback, “You all right?”
Rivera hunched over and talked to Howell for almost a minute before giving him a tap of encouragement on the right leg.
Others followed to console Howell after the worst game of his NFL career contributed to adding another embarrassing defeat in a season with a few of them.
Howell threw three interceptions among six Commanders turnovers, and Washington may have reached the low point of Rivera’s tenure as coach with a 31-19 home loss Sunday to the last-place New York Giants.
The ugly game got even smellier afterward, when there was no hot water in the stadium for players to shower.
“It is a low point, that’s for sure,” Rivera said 11 games into his fourth season with Washington. “Any time you’ve got an opportunity to win a football game and you put the numbers up you did and you get a chance, you’ve got to come through.”
His team did not. The Commanders (4-7) lost to the Giants (3-8) for the second time this season, this time to undrafted rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito, who picked up his first NFL win in his second start.
Washington has lost seven of nine since opening with back-to-back victories, falling out of the playoff race despite a mediocre field of teams competing for three NFC wild-card spots.
“This is a winnable game,” right guard Sam Cosmi said. “The fact that we couldn’t win the game, I’m kind of at a loss for words, to be completely honest with you. Sloppy football, way too many turnovers.”
After a late comeback bid was ended by Isaiah Simmons picking off Howell and returning it 54 yards for a touchdown with 16 seconds left, Rivera’s future, and that of the entire coaching staff and front office, is now squarely in the forefront in the first season since Josh Harris’ ownership group bought the team.
Favored by more than a touchdown, the Commanders fumbled in nearly every possible way: Logan Thomas after a catch, Byron Pringle on a kickoff return and Chris Rodriguez Jr. on a run.
Inexplicable picks by Howell – lauded by players and coaches in recent weeks as the franchise’s potential QB of the future – came in the first and fourth quarters.
“When you turn the ball over that many times, you’re not going to win games,” said Howell, who was 31 of 45 for 255 yards passing. “It starts with me. I’ve got to do a better job taking care of the football. I didn’t give my team a chance to win.”
The giveaways made it impossible for Washington to get back into the game against New York, which scored a first-quarter TD for the first time all season. The Giants never trailed and won for the first time since Oct. 22, when they beat the Commanders 14-7 at the Meadowlands.
Down the East Coast, the result was the same even with DeVito stepping in for injured backup Tyrod Taylor. The 25-year-old third-stringer who still lives with his family in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, completed 18 of 26 passes for 246 yards and three TD passes: two to Saquon Barkley and one to Darius Slayton.
“Tommy has put the work in – the players have confidence in him,” coach Brian Daboll said. “Good job to the whole team. Team win. Certainly proud of Tommy.”
The Giants dominated despite allowing DeVito to be sacked nine times and rushing for zero yards as a team in the first half. The defense stepped up, with Nick McCloud forcing a fumble and making his first interception among the big plays by the unit.
Howell was also sacked four times in a back-to-earth game for the second-year pro who entered with the most passing yards in the league. He threw a late 8-yard TD pass to Jahan Dotson and led another drive to the New York 48 before his third interception sealed it.
“You can’t turn the ball over, and you can’t allow a couple of big plays,” Rivera said. “I thought (Howell) had his moments. He took a shot early on and not sure if that was a good decision, but he had some really good moments, moved the ball really well and just can’t turn it over and kill your own drive.”
Commanders safety Xavier McKinney shoved Howell out of bounds after officials had signaled a touchdown on his run in the second quarter. That set off a melee in the corner, leading to the ejections of Cor’Dale Flott and Commanders receiver Curtis Samuel.
Giants: Slayton was ruled out early in the second half with a right arm injury. … OT Evan Neal (ankle) and CB Adoree Jackson (concussion) were out for a second consecutive week.
Commanders: DE Efe Obada was carted off with a right leg injury six plays in. … RB Antonio Gibson was inactive because of a toe injury. DE James Smith Williams and FB Alex Armah were out because of hamstring injuries.
Giants: Host the New England Patriots next Sunday.
Commanders: Visit Dallas on Thursday for the Cowboys’ annual Thanksgiving Day home game.
PERFECT BROCK PURDY THROWS 3 TD PASSES TO LEAD THE 49ERS PAST THE BUCS 27-14
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Brock Purdy felt it was important for the San Francisco 49ers to get back to an attacking mindset following a three-game losing streak.
The new attitude – and a couple of well-thrown deep passes – have the Niners back playing at their usual high level the past two games.
Purdy threw a 76-yard strike to Brandon Aiyuk for one of his three touchdown passes, and the 49ers beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-14 on Sunday.
“We had to get back to ‘We’re going to take it,’” he said. “That’s the chip I was talking about. We had to get back to that.”
The Niners (7-3) have done just that the past two games with Purdy playing a major role, completing 78.4% of his passes for 629 yards with six TDs and no interceptions.
He was nearly perfect on Sunday, going 21 for 25 for 333 yards to join Joe Montana as the only Niners quarterbacks ever to post a perfect passer rating in a game with at least 15 attempts.
“He had a perfect passer rating? That’s incredible,” running back Christian McCaffrey said. “He’s a baller. … That doesn’t shock me but that’s impressive.”
Purdy also threw a 4-yard TD pass to McCaffrey and a 3-yarder to George Kittle to help the 49ers post a second straight lopsided win following a three-game losing streak.
After throwing five interceptions during the skid to raise doubts about his ability to lead the team, Purdy has been turnover-free the past two weeks.
“Brock’s been great because he’s been consistent through it all,” coach Kyle Shanahan said. “I never felt any difference with Brock during those three losses. I think he’s pretty realistic so he doesn’t get into stuff that’s not that accurate.”
Baker Mayfield threw a TD pass for Tampa Bay (4-6), but the Bucs had no answers defensively against Purdy and the 49ers and lost for the fifth time in six games.
“It’s just us,” Mayfield said. “We’ve got to get out of our own way. We got some good opportunities today that we didn’t exactly take advantage of, and so when you’re playing a team like that, you have to.”
For the second straight week, the 49ers broke the game open with a big pass play from Purdy on the opening drive of the second half.
He connected on a 66-yarder to Kittle on the second play of the third quarter last week to help fuel a 34-3 win at Jacksonville and then topped that this week.
The Niners forced a punt by the Bucs on the opening drive of the third quarter and were backed up to their own 2 following a perfectly placed punt by Jake Camarda.
A short run by McCaffrey and a 21-yard pass to Kittle moved the ball out to the 24, and Purdy struck from there. He lofted a deep throw down the sideline to Aiyuk, who beat Jamel Dean for the catch and ran it in from there for the score that made it 20-6.
“He beat us,” Bucs coach Todd Bowles said. “Credit to him. He’s a great receiver, we know that. I feel like we play man coverage very well. That time they beat us, and you know, we got beat.”
Purdy then led another scoring drive on the next possession capped by the pass to Kittle to make it a 21-point lead. The Niners held on from there, thanks in part to rookie Ji’Ayir Brown breaking up a fourth-down pass in the end zone and intercepting another throw to the end zone on back-to-back drives in the fourth quarter.
BAKER VS. BOSA
The rivalry between Mayfield and Niners edge rusher Nick Bosa that dates back to college when Mayfield planted a flag at midfield at Ohio State following an Oklahoma win had some new developments.
Mayfield raised his arms triumphantly after blocking Bosa on a 6-yard end-around run by Trey Palmer. But Bosa got revenge on the next official play when he combined with Fred Warner on a sack of Mayfield that led to a lost fumble.
Buccaneers: Dean (foot, ankle) left the game in the third quarter after the TD by Aiyuk and didn’t return. … CB Carlton Davis (hip) and LB Lavonte David (groin) also left in the second half and didn’t return.
49ers: S Talanoa Hufanga left with a knee injury in the second half that Shanahan fears could be a torn ACL.
Buccaneers: Visit Indianapolis on Sunday.
49ers: Visit Seattle on Thursday night.
ALLEN AND BILLS OFFENSE REAWAKEN IN 32-6 ROUT OF DIVISION RIVAL JETS
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Josh Allen put aside shouldering the blame of getting his offensive coordinator fired this week by placing an emphasis on injecting a little more energy and joy into his on-field performance.
Allen threw three touchdown passes and a once-stagnating offense showed signs of regaining its swagger by scoring on six of its first eight possessions in a 32-6 rout of the AFC East-rival New York Jets on Sunday.
“Let’s have fun playing this game. It’s football and at the end of the day we get to do, in my opinion, the most amazing job on the planet … So we’ve got to enjoy it when you can,” Allen said.
“We were executing at a high level today,” he added. “Every season, man, has its ups and downs. You’re going to have adversity. It’s how you bounce back from the adversity.”
The Bills (6-5) snapped a two-game skid and topped 25 points for the first time in seven weeks. After building a 9-0 lead on three field goals by Tyler Bass, Allen broke the game open with three touchdowns over four possessions spanning halftime. In doing so, he extended his streak to 19 games with a TD to break the franchise record set by Hall of Famer Jim Kelly spanning the 1986-87 seasons.
The Jets (4-6) dropped their third straight and coach Robert Saleh potentially opened the door for a quarterback switch. Starter Zach Wilson was benched with 2:17 remaining in the third quarter and replaced by Tim Boyle, who didn’t fare much better in overseeing an offense that managed to score just its ninth touchdown of the season.
After spending the past few weeks backing Wilson, Saleh said he was going to watch the tape before making a decision Monday.
“We’ll look at all of it. I’m not really answering those questions yet,” Saleh said.
The Bills, meantime, followed Allen’s energetic lead.
“I love Josh. What I did tonight is all him. Just his energy,” said receiver Khalil Shakir, who scored on an 81-yard catch and run. “Tonight it was just nonstop. It was fun. It felt fun to operate the way we were playing tonight. And 17 was the head honcho of all that.”
Allen was efficient in finishing 20 of 32 for 275 yards with an interception, which came on a desperation Hail Mary to end the first half. Otherwise, he put the game on ice with a 26-yard touchdown pass to former Jets running back Ty Johnson on fourth-and-1 to cap Buffalo’s opening drive of the third quarter followed with his TD to Shakir two plays into the Bills’ next possession.
The 81-yard touchdown was the longest scoring play from scrimmage this season, and the offensive outburst came with quarterbacks coach Joe Brady taking over as coordinator after Ken Dorsey was fired on Tuesday following a 24-22 loss to Denver.
The offense was so charged up, it carried over following the game with Bills offensive tackle Dion Dawkins getting into a skirmish with Jets defensive lineman Michael Clemons in the tunnel leading to each team’s locker room.
“I’m not a fan of the Jets, like, very disrespectful players,” is all Dawkins would say.
Clemons did not address reporters following the game, while teammate Sauce Gardner said he was attempting to break up the fight.
“A lot of emotions going into it. That’s it. A lot of emotions. Frustrated,” the cornerback said. “I ain’t have no issues with none of them. I was trying to resolve everything.”
The skirmish carried over from the fourth quarter when Dawkins continued blocking Clemons after the whistle before knocking his opponent down and landing on him. A shoving match ensued with Dawkins being flagged for unnecessary roughness.
Newly acquired cornerback Rasul Douglas had two interceptions – Buffalo’s first in seven games – and also recovered a fumble.
The offensively challenged Jets finally scored a touchdown, but nothing much else went well for a team that ranks at or near the bottom of the league in numerous offensive categories.
Wilson’s 9-yard touchdown pass to Breece Hall with 45 seconds left in the first half was the Jets’ first TD in three weeks.
Wilson finished seven of 15 for 81 yards with an interception. Boyle was 7 of 14 for 33 yards and an interception.
Buffalo’s offense by comparison showed signs of rhythm, balance and imagination, which were all issues that became apparent under Dorsey.
Most important, the offense’s ability to build and maintain an early lead took the pressure off an injury depleted defense already missing three key starters, and lost three defensive backs to head injuries during the game.
The most serious injury was sustained by safety Taylor Rapp, who moved his hands as he was loaded into an ambulance on the field. Rapp sustained a neck injury, while Taron Johnson and Dane Jackson were ruled out with head injuries.
Coach Sean McDermott would only say that Rapp did not go to the hospital and was instead sent home.
NOTES: Jets LT Mekhi Becton injured an ankle and will have tests Monday. … McDermott improved to 68-40 in matching Lou Saban (68-45-4) for second in franchise victories. Hall of Famer Marv Levy is first at 112-70. … The 32 points were Buffalo’s most since a 48-20 win over Miami on Oct. 8, and the most points the Jets have surrendered since a 33-18 loss to Philadelphia on Dec. 5, 2021.
Jets: Host division-rival Miami on Friday.
Bills: Travel to play at Philadelphia next Sunday.
RAMS RALLY FROM A LATE DEFICIT AND SNAP THEIR 3-GAME SKID WITH A 17-16 WIN OVER SEAHAWKS
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) Matthew Stafford left the field hunched in pain after a disastrous flea-flicker ended with Stafford taking a massive hit to the chest while throwing an interception with his Los Angeles Rams already trailing by nine points in the fourth quarter.
When Stafford caught his breath, he got mad – and then he led the Rams to his first fourth-quarter comeback victory since he did it in the Super Bowl.
Lucas Havrisik made a 22-yard field goal 1:31 to play, and Jason Myers missed a 55-yard attempt for the Seahawks with 3 seconds left in Los Angeles’ 17-16 victory over Seattle on Sunday.
Stafford passed for 190 yards in his return from a one-game injury absence and led two late scoring drives by the Rams (4-6), who snapped their three-game losing streak with their second win over the Seahawks (6-4) this season. Stafford was outstanding on the Rams’ final two drives after responding with determination to the crushing hit by Mario Edwards Jr.
“I don’t know if I need to take that level of a shot every week to get going,” said a grinning Stafford, who played with a brace on his sprained thumb.
“I know that late in the game, fourth quarter, we’re within a score, I want the ball,” he added. “It just so happened that I had my chest run through the drive before. I don’t know if that’s the thing that gets me going, but sometimes it’s late in the game, you could be playing as poor a game as you want to play, (but) you play one great quarter, you’ve got a chance to win that thing.”
Los Angeles hung on only after Geno Smith returned from a late injury of his own and led a frantic last-minute drive into field goal range. But Seattle ran out of time and had to settle for a long attempt that was missed badly by Myers, who had already hit three field goals at SoFi Stadium.
Seattle appeared to be cruising toward its fourth victory in five games until Smith, who passed for 233 yards, was sidelined by a hit late in the third quarter from Aaron Donald, whose left arm made hard contact with Smith’s throwing arm.
“Just trying to go out there and make plays and get us in position to win the game,” said Smith, who isn’t sure if he’ll play against the 49ers on Thanksgiving night. “It was still hurting. Obviously didn’t do enough.”
After the Rams’ defense got a quick stop following Stafford’s pick, Darrell Henderson ran for a 1-yard TD with 7:38 left to trim Seattle’s lead to two points. Derion Kendrick intercepted Seattle backup Drew Lock’s long pass moments later, and Stafford drove the Rams to the Seattle 4 before they settled for Havrisik’s short field goal.
Stafford looked sharp on a series of impressive late throws, none better than a picturesque 32-yard fling to rookie Puka Nacua.
“I thought (Stafford’s) toughness was on display,” coach Sean McVay said. “Maybe we should punch him in the gut right before the games, huh?”
Los Angeles’ defense also kept the Seahawks out of the end zone in the final 50 minutes, and the oft-targeted Kendrick came up with its biggest play.
“I just felt like they were trying me a lot throughout the game, looking my way and trying to get easy completions,” said Kendrick, who was effectively benched in the Rams’ last game two weeks ago. “I looked at their bench and said, ‘Stop playing with me. Quit trying.’ And then I had to go make a play.”
Smith made a 21-yard completion to DK Metcalf over the middle to the Los Angeles 39 with about 30 seconds left, but the Seahawks couldn’t get closer for Myers.
Stafford hit Nacua for a short touchdown shortly before halftime for the Rams, but Seattle’s defense held Los Angeles to 123 yards in the first three quarters. The Seahawks ultimately couldn’t stop the Rams’ ground game in the fourth led by Royce Freeman, who rushed for 73 yards.
Metcalf caught a TD pass in the first quarter for Seattle, which also committed 12 penalties for a whopping 130 yards.
“This was the most disappointing loss for us because of the way we did it,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “We made it really hard on ourselves so many times in this game with the calls that were made. And I’m not disputing any of them. I’m just saying the penalties that happened were just out of line for us. We have not been good in that area during the season in general, and today it really blew up on us.”
Seahawks: S Jamal Adams sat out with a knee injury, and rookie S Jerrick Reed II went down in the second half with a knee injury. … RB Kenneth Walker III incurred an oblique injury in the first quarter and didn’t return. Rookie Zach Charbonnet had 47 yards rushing and six receptions for 22 yards.
Rams: WR Cooper Kupp didn’t return after injuring his right ankle in the second quarter. McVay had no postgame update on his Super Bowl MVP. … CB Cobie Durant sat out with the aftereffects of a stinger incurred before the bye.
Seahawks: Host San Francisco on Thursday.
Rams: At Arizona on Nov. 26.

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL
TOP 25 ROUNDUP: NO. 19 TEXAS AVOIDS UPSET, CLIPS LOUISVILLE AT BUZZER
Max Abmas canned a contested, fadeaway jumper in the lane with 0.4 seconds remaining to lift No. 19 Texas to a wild 81-80 win over determined Louisville on Sunday afternoon in the opening round of the Empire Classic in New York.
Texas (4-0) led by three points at halftime but relinquished the front with poor shooting to start the second half. The last four minutes featured back-and-forth play with 10 lead changes, the final coming after the Longhorns — trailing by one — forced Louisville into a shot clock violation with seven seconds left.
After a timeout, Texas got the ball into the hands of Abmas, who drove into the lane while being covered by the Cardinals’ Skyy Clark and lifted a sideways spinning shot that went in for the win.
Kadin Shedrick led the Longhorns with a career-high 27 points while Abmas added 14 and Ithiel Horton had 10.
Clark and Tre White scored 20 points apiece to lead the Cardinals (2-2), with Ty-Laur Johnson adding 14 and Brandon Huntley-Hatfield hitting for 11 before fouling out.
No. 3 Arizona 101, UT Arlington 56
Kylan Boswell and Oumar Ballo each scored 15 points to lead seven players in double figures, and the Wildcats used a 20-0 run bridging the two halves to take control and cruise past the Mavericks in Tucson, Ariz.
The game was tied at 37 late in the first half, but the Wildcats (5-0) scored the final six points before the break and were relentless when play resumed. After the Mavericks (2-2) finally stopped the 20-point run, Arizona responded with a 13-0 surge.
Pelle Larsson and Jaden Bradley each scored 13 points for Arizona, and Shemar Wilson finished with 19 points after helping keep UTA in the game with 15 in the first half.
No. 5 UConn 77, Indiana 57
Tristen Newton collected 23 points and 11 rebounds to lift the Huskies over the Hoosiers at the Empire Classic in New York.
Newton added six assists and two steals for the Huskies (4-0), who will face No. 19 Texas in the tournament championship on Monday. UConn’s Cam Spencer made 5 of 8 shots from the floor and all six of his free throws to highlight his 18-point performance.
Indiana’s Malik Reneau scored 15 of his career-high 18 points in the first half before fouling out with 7:04 to play in the second and his team trailing by 10. The Huskies scored the next 10 points to effectively seal the win.

Dayton (3-2), which knocked off LSU and St. John’s earlier in the event, missed 14 of its 18 3-pointers on Sunday. DaRon Holmes II led the team with 16 points and Nate Santos had 14. Down the stretch, the Flyers got the deficit down to 14 on several occasions, but Houston had an answer each time.
No. 12 Miami 91, Kansas State 83
Nijel Pack burned his former school by scoring 20 of his game-high-tying 28 points in the first half to lead the Hurricanes past the Wildcats to win the Baha Mar Hoops Championship in Nassau, Bahamas.
Pack, who was a first-team All-Big 12 player at Kansas State before transferring to Miami last season, made 9 of 16 shots from the floor, including 7 of 12 3-pointers. Miami (5-0), which advanced to the Final Four last season, also got 23 points and a team-high seven rebounds from Norchad Omier.
Kansas State (3-2), which advanced to the Elite Eight of last season’s NCAA Tournament, had its three-game winning streak broken. Cam Carter led the Wildcats with 28 points on 12-for-22 shooting. Wildcats guard Tylor Perry, who entered the game averaging a team-high 21.5 points, scored 10 on 4-for-13 shooting overall.
No. 16 Southern California 81, Brown 70
Boogie Ellis returned to the lineup to score 28 points after missing time due to an ankle injury, and the Trojans survived a test from the Bears in Los Angeles.

Tai’Reon Joseph scored 16 points but made just 7 of 23 shots from the field, going 0-for-6 on 3-pointers for the Jaguars (1-4). Jordan Mitchell added 13 points, but the duo didn’t have enough help. Southern connected on just 23 of 61 attempts from the field, including only 5 of 24 from beyond the 3-point line.

In a game that featured 21 lead changes, Maryland guard Bri McDaniel stole away Syracuse’s final possession as time expired, clinching an 83-81 win for the No. 20 Terrapins over the visiting Orange on Sunday afternoon in College Park, Maryland.
McDaniel took charge in the second half for Maryland (2-2), scoring eight of her 12 points and dishing out five assists in the final two frames.
“I knew I had to come in and be ready,” McDaniel said. “This is an ACC-Big Ten matchup, so I can’t be scared. I have to come out there ready to play and give my team what they need.”
Allie Kubek led the Terps with 23 points and eight rebounds, while Shyanne Sellers stuffed the stat sheet with 19 points, eight boards, five steals and three assists.

Next up for the Terps will be a matchup with No. 24 Washington State in Cancun, Mexico on Thursday — already the third time this season Maryland has faced a fellow ranked opponent.
No. 23 Ole Miss 56, Arizona 47
Marquesha Davis scored 17 points as the Rebels outlasted the Wildcats at the Bad Boy Mowers Battle 4 Atlantis in Nassau, Bahamas.

Maya Nnaji powered Arizona (5-1) with 12 points and seven rebounds.

Lauri Markkanen had a monster game for the Jazz, scoring 38 points with 17 rebounds. He forced overtime with a bucket late in regulation. For a moment, it appeared that Markkanen would get a chance to force triple overtime.
Phoenix held a three-point lead in the final second — after Booker’s free throws with nine-tenths of a second left — when Durant was called for fouling Markkanen in the act of shooting a corner 3. After a lengthy review, the officials reversed the ruling because they deemed that Durant hit the ball before smacking Markkanen’s wrist.

NHL ROUNDUP: PENS’ ALEX NEDELJKOVIC RETURNS, BLANKS KNIGHTS
Just back from a hand injury, goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic turned away all 38 shots he faced Sunday to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins past the visiting Vegas Golden Knights, 3-0.

The shutout capped quite a weekend for Nedeljkovic, who came off long-term IR earlier in the day after a hand injury. The 27-year-old, in his first season with Pittsburgh and pegged as the backup to Tristan Jarry, had not played in the NHL since Oct. 24. He started Friday for AHL affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on a conditioning assignment and not only won that game, but also scored a goal.
The Golden Knights have lost five of their past seven games (2-4-1) after an 11-0-1 start to the season coming off winning the Stanley Cup. They have managed 17 goals in their past seven games. Goaltender Adin Hill stopped 30 of 32 shots.

He later skated in with the puck and beat Wild netminder Marc-Andre Fleury (21 saves) on the short side for the victory. Defenseman Morgan Rielly had a goal with two assists and Auston Matthews joined Nylander with one of each for the Maple Leafs, who prevailed despite squandering a two-goal lead.
The Wild, who earned two points in two games at Stockholm, trailed 3-1 early in the third period before storming back with two goals in approximately 2 1/2 minutes.

LUDVIG ABERG FIRES ANOTHER 61, WINS MAIDEN PGA TITLE AT RSM CLASSIC
Ludvig Aberg fired his second straight 9-under 61 to run away with his first PGA Tour title at the RSM Classic on Sunday in St. Simons Island, Ga.
The Swedish rookie had obtained his tour card through the PGA Tour University pathway after a fine career at Texas Tech. He won on the DP World Tour in September and made Europe’s victorious Ryder Cup team soon after.
Now the 24-year-old’s resume has grown again, as Aberg posted a 29-under 253 for the week at Sea Island Resort. Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes shot a 63 Sunday to finish 25 under, and he was the only player within six shots of Aberg.
Aberg and Hughes also secured their places in two signature events next winter, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and the Genesis Invitational, by finishing in the top 60 of the inaugural FedEx Cup Fall standings. That group also includes Ben Griffin, Taylor Montgomery, J.J. Spaun, Sam Ryder and Luke List, who was 60th.
Nos. 51-125 in the points standings at the conclusion of this tournament received full tour status for the 2024 season. Troy Merritt, who missed the cut at the RSM, was projected to be No. 125, while China’s Carl Yuan wound up at No. 126. The players at Nos. 126-150 will be given conditional PGA Tour status and full Korn Ferry Tour status.
Aberg had seven birdies through 11 holes before making his first and only bogey of the week at the par-3 12th, thanks to a wayward tee shot. Aberg recovered and birdied three of his final four holes at the resort’s Seaside course to capture his maiden tour title.
AMY YANG WINS TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP; LILIA VU CAPTURES POY HONORS
Amy Yang of South Korea posted a 6-under 66 in her final round to win the CME Group Tour Championship on Sunday in Naples, Fla.
Yang, 34, had not won on the LPGA Tour since February 2019 and missed significant time with a tennis elbow injury that happened while rock climbing. Her victory earned a $2 million first prize, the largest on tour.
Yang shot 27-under
Yang shot 27-under 261 for the week at Tiburon Golf Club to outpace Alison Lee and Japan’s Nasa Hataoka by three strokes. Lee also shot 66 on Sunday and Hataoka settled for a 69.
Lilia Vu finished a distant fourth at 21 under, but her final-round 65 was enough for her to secure the Rolex Player of the Year Award. Vu, who also owns the No. 1 world ranking, won four tournaments this year, including two major championships.
The highlight of Yang’s round was an eagle 2 from the fairway at the par-4 13th hole. That brought her to 25 under for the tournament, where she was safe from the rest of the field before finishing with two of her five birdies at Nos. 17 and 18.
Atthaya Thitikul of Thailand shot a bogey-free 66 and finished fifth at 20 under. Ruoning Yin (69) and Xiyu Lin (70), both of China, tied for sixth at 19 under. Nelly Korda (68) and Australia’s Minjee Lee (70) tied for eighth at 18 under.

“You guys know Jordan’s a hell of a player. He scores the ball well. He does some really good stuff. Shots were going for him.

We’ve got a lot of guys that need to be ready at any time. Kudos to him.” -Haliburton on Jordan Nwora

INDIANA MEN’S BASKETBALL
INDIANA FALLS TO NO. 5/4 UCONN IN EMPIRE CLASSIC
NEW YORK CITY – A major college basketball test was delivered like a gut punch.
Indiana (3-1) lost a game, but did it learn a lesson?
Head coach Mike Woodson pushes to make it so.
Sunday’s 77-57 loss to No. 5 Connecticut in the Empire Classic opener at Madison Square Garden provided plenty of teaching points.
“This was a wake-up call,” Woodson told Voice of the Hoosiers Don Fischer during the post-game radio show. “I’ve got a lot of work to do with this team.”
That includes better offensive rebounding, better overall rebounding, and more efficient offense. The defending national champion Huskies (4-0) dominated the first two categories by 44-22 and 16-0 margins. The Hoosiers had just six assists against 12 turnovers while shooting 38 percent from the field.
“Rebounding has been a big concern since we started this journey with two exhibition games and then three regular season games,” Woodson told Fischer. “Rebounding was the difference in the game.
“We only had six assists. That’s one of the lowest since I’ve been here in terms of ball movement and making shots. I have to get us in better position to be better offensively.”
The Hoosiers won’t wait long for a second Empire Classic chance. It will play Monday against the Texas-Louisville loser.
“We have to get tougher,” Woodson said in the postgame press conference. “It was glaring that we got out-toughed. I don’t like that.
“They put us in our place. We’ve got to figure it out.”
Pre-game motivation included former IU All-American and NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas talking to the team.
It wasn’t enough.
“We competed the first half,” Woodson told Fischer. “At the start of the second half, we dropped the ball. “Give them a lot of credit.”
IU struggled in the first half with point guard Xavier Johnson playing just three minutes because of foul trouble.
Forward Malik Reneau came to the rescue with 15 points on 6-for-7 shooting, vital given the rest of the Hoosiers were just 4-for-20 in the first 20 minutes.
Second-half foul trouble disrupted that dominance. Reneau finished with 18 points, three rebounds, and three blocks before fouling out.
Forward Kel’el Ware had 11 points and eight rebounds. Guard Trey Galloway had 10 points. CJ Gunn displayed some elite one-on-one defense with timely offense (seven points).
IU was 3-for-13 from three-point range. Twenty-two of its points came from inside the paint.
“It was just paint, paint, paint for them,” UConn head coach Dan Hurley said. “The three-point line is not something that, at this point, is a strength for them.”
UConn, which has won every game by at least 20 points, was led by Tristen Newton’s 23 points and 11 rebounds.
“That’s a championship team,” Woodson told Fischer. “We’re trying to get where they’ve been.”
Defense ruled early. After eight minutes, the teams had combined for 6-for-24 shooting, six turnovers, and five blocks, with the Huskies edging ahead 12-8. Ware had four of those points, including a three-pointer.
Ware’s second three-pointer and three inside Reneau baskets kept IU within range at 22-15 with seven minutes left in the first half. The Huskies had a 7-0 edge in second-chance points.
UConn surged to a 35-21 lead. A Gunn jumper, two Reneau free throws, a Gunn steal, and two more free throws got the Hoosiers back in it at 35-27. Reneau powered in a three-point play for a 37-30 halftime score.
Johnson started the second half. That wasn’t enough to stop the Huskies from scoring the first four points via poor IU defense, which prompted a quick Woodson timeout facing a 41-30 deficit.
After a Huskies three-pointer, a Galloway layup, a Reneau three-point play, a Johnson steal, and two free throws made it 44-37.
UConn’s relentless rebounding restored the double-digit lead. Reneau picking up a fourth foul along with Johnson didn’t help.
Four-straight Galloway points made it 58-48 with seven minutes left, but Reneau’s fifth foul came seconds later. UConn pushed the lead to 16, then 18, then 22.
The Hoosiers couldn’t rally.
“They were the more physical team,” Woodson said. “They took us out of everything we wanted to do in terms of ball movement.”

Indiana head coach Teri Moren
“We were a little bit better tonight defensively from our group. The defensive goal, because I’ll probably be asked was to keep them under 60, so we were able to do that. We wanted to keep them under five threes, they average right around nine threes, and we wanted to keep them under five but other than that I thought we had some really good moments. I want to point out that I thought Lexus Bargesser was terrific on the defensive side of the ball. She was really locked. There was a time there where I think (Lipscomb) called a time out and they were away from us and I could clearly hear she and (Lenée) Beau(mont)talking at a level that we need all of them to talk at. Yesterday watched film, we got back on the floor, we went live and we really have been talking emphasizing communication and the defensive side of the ball and I thought we did see some improvement from Friday night but yet we have a ways to go. I have confidence that will continue to get better, but it was a good win you know and we have a big week coming up this week, so to have two games – Friday and then today – I thought we’re good for us especially coming off of being on the West Coast. I’ we won and I thought there were some individual really good moments. Sara (Scalia) was really good tonight shooting the ball and she had help. Assists were up to 23 and we’re sharing the ball well. Our turnovers are averaging right around 11. Fourteen is a little too much tonight but I love how we’re sharing the ball and I’m happy that we improved a little bit tonight defensively.”
Indiana heads to the 2023 Elevance Health Fort Myers Classic to face No. 15/20 Tennessee and Princeton on Nov. 23 and 25.
HOOSIERS BESTED BY BIG BLOCK OF NO. 3 BADGERS
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – At full strength for the first time in two weeks, No. 3 Wisconsin (24-3, 15-3) rode an outstanding defensive effort to a sweep of the Indiana volleyball team (19-12, 9-9) on Sunday afternoon at Wilkinson Hall.
The Hoosiers took a late lead in the second game but couldn’t close the deal as Wisconsin finished off the hosts in three sets (25-19, 26-24, 25-14).
Sophomore outside hitter Candela Alonso-Corcelles provided a match-high 15 kills in the defeat but an efficient Wisconsin offense (.340, 41-8-97) was too much to overcome in Bloomington.
IU finishes its home slate at 10-3 (7-3), the most home wins in a single season since 2010. The Hoosiers cap off the regular season next week with trips to Michigan State (Friday) and Michigan (Saturday).
Stats and Notes

THE NOTES TO KNOW
• Part of perhaps the best tournament field ever assembled, the No. 2-ranked Purdue men’s basketball team heads to paradise looking for its third consecutive tournament title when it faces No. 11-ranked Gonzaga in Monday’s opening round of the Allstate Maui Invitational.
• Purdue (#2) and Gonzaga (#11) are two of six teams in the Maui field ranked in this week’s AP Top 25 poll. Four of the teams are ranked in the nation’s top seven, as Purdue and Gonzaga are joined by Kansas (#1), Marquette (#4), Tennessee (#7), UCLA (#25), Syracuse and Chaminade.
• Monday’s game features KenPom’s top two offenses in the country in offensive efficiency (Purdue – 119.5; Gonzaga – 119.2).
• Starting with the win over Xavier on Monday night, Purdue is now in the midst of a nine-game stretch that could POTENTIALLY have eight of the nine teams ranked in the KenPom top-60 and all of them as NCAA tournament teams from a year ago. Xavier (39), Gonzaga (7), possibly Tennessee (8), possibly Kansas (3) OR Marquette (9) OR UCLA (30), Texas Southern (227 – Last year’s SWAC Champion), Northwestern (59), Iowa (39), Alabama (5) and Arizona (6). Of teams currently in the KenPom top nine, Purdue could play five of them.
• Purdue has won two straight Thanksgiving week tournaments, defeating No. 18 North Carolina and No. 5 Villanova in the 2021 Hall of Fame Tipoff Tournament, then defeating West Virginia, No. 6 Gonzaga and No. 8 Duke in last year’s Phil Knight Legacy in Portland.
• Since its last appearance in the Maui Invitational (2014), Purdue owns a 25-6 record in Thanksgiving week tournaments, winning four events (2015, 2016, 2021, 2022) and finishing second in three more (2018, 2019, 2020).
• Purdue has won 27 straight regular-season, non-conference games, dating to a Dec. 8, 2020, setback at Miami, Fla. The streak is the longest in the country by a whopping 12 games (Connecticut – 15). The Boilermaker have also won 22 straight non-conference home games.
• The Boilermakers currently rank No. 1 nationally in offensive efficiency (119.5) and eighth in defensive efficiency (90.8). Early on, Purdue is one of four teams to rank in the top 10 in both categories (Purdue, Connecticut, Kansas, Arizona).
• With its No. 2 ranking this week, Purdue has been ranked in the top 5 of the AP poll in 18 straight weeks, the longest-active streak in America by 11 weeks (Kansas – 7). It has been ranked in the top 3 in 13 of those 18 weeks.
• Since the start of the 2016-17 season, Purdue has won 79 games against the KenPom top-50. The 79 wins are the second-most nationally behind Kansas’ 103 wins. Purdue is 79-52 (.600) against the top 50, and 115-59 (.661) against the top 100.
• Zach Edey is 1-of-2 players nationally to average at least 20.0 PPG, 10.0 RPG and 3.0 BPG this season, doing that in just 25.8 minutes per game. He is also already ranked No. 1 in the 2024 KenPom Player of the Year standings, being named the MVP in all three games played.
• Purdue’s 61 wins since the start of the 2021-22 season are tied for the fourth most in the country (Houston – 68, Kansas – 65, Arizona – 64, Gonzaga – 61, Duke – 61, UCLA – 61). Among Big Ten teams, Iowa (47) and Wisconsin (46) are next on the list.
• A year ago, Purdue became the first team since Wisconsin in 2015 to win an outright Big Ten regular-season title and the Big Ten Tournament title in the same season. Purdue became the first team in Big Ten history to win the regular-season title by at least three games and win the Big Ten Tournament in the same season. No team since Michigan State (1999, 2000) has won consecutive Big Ten Tournament and outright regular-season championships.
• Purdue is in search for its 26th Big Ten Championship, already owning the most Big Ten titles in league history. Should Purdue win the Big Ten title in 2024, it will mark its fourth title in the last eight seasons and back-to-back titles for the first time since 1994-95-96.
• Matt Painter ranks fifth on the Big Ten’s list for career wins with 416, needing just five victories to tie Illinois legend Lou Henson for fourth (421). On the Big Ten games-only chart, Painter is seventh (209 wins), needing one win to tie Indiana’s Branch McCracken (210).

LAST TIME OUT
After spotting Texas A&M eight points in the first 69 seconds of the game, Purdue grabbed the momentum and never looked back in a 72-58 win Thursday night at Mackey Arena. Rashunda Jones and Abbey Ellis both tallied 20 points to become the first Boilermaker duo to score 20 points in a game since 2019-20. Caitlyn Harper stepped up with a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double against the Aggies.
• Purdue leads the all-time series with Florida 3-0 with all three matchups occurring between 1997 and 1999.
• The Boilermakers have a 1-1 all-time record with Georgia. The previous two matchups came in the 2004 and 2007 NCAA Sweet 16s when Katie Gearlds led Purdue on the court.
• The two games will be the second and third of a three-game stretch against opponents from the Southeastern Conference.
• Rashunda Jones dropped a career-best 20 points in front of the crowd of 5,223, as the first Boilermaker rookie to score 20 points in a game since Karissa McLaughlin in 2017-18.
• Jeanae Terry recorded a team-high 10 assists against the Aggies. She now has 10 double-digit dime games as a Boilermaker, tied for sixth most in college basketball dating back to the start of the 2021-22 season.

• Purdue ranks second in the Big Ten with an 80.4% free throw mark. Last year, the Boilermakers shot 77.5% at the line, which was the highest mark since the 2013-14 season.
• Jeanae Terry is on the cusp of a pair of career milestones. She will hit the century mark with her next start. The Detroit native needs six assists for 400 as a Boilermaker, which would pass Katie Gearlds for 13th on Purdue’s all-time chart.
• Purdue is the only program in the nation with three sets of siblings – McKenna and Madison Layden, Alaina and Caitlyn Harper and Mila and Amiyah Reynolds.

CHICAGO, Ill. – The IUPUI women’s basketball team fell to the UIC Flames on the road on Sunday, 79-49. Sophomore Abby Wolterman tallied a career-high 12 points in the loss. Turnovers hurt with the Jags committing 23 turnovers that UIC converted to 26 points.
Two Flames scored in double-digits with UIC’s (4-1) Makiyah Williams totaling 22 points.
The Jaguars outrebounded the Flames, totaling 48 rebounds but the Jags’ offense couldn’t finish plays shooting .284 from the field (19-for-67). UIC was more efficient from the three point line recording a .304 percentage (7-for-23) while the Jags couldn’t get the rock to sink at just .200 percent (4-for-20) from behind the arc.
IUPUI fell behind early with a slow offensive start in the first quarter. The Jags scored just eight points in the first quarter with Wolterman recording five of those points. Down 18-8, IUPUI added 12 points with Tahlia Walton, Jaela Johnson, Faith Stinson and Katie Davdison all adding buckets. Although the Jags offense started to make progress, UIC scored 20 to keep the lead at 38-20 at the half.
After the break, the Jaguars recorded a better shooting percentage in the second half at .324 (11-for-34) but it was too late as UIC kept the lead at 59-33. Heading into the fourth quarter, IUPUI totaled 16 points for their highest tally of the game. UIC closed out the game with a 30-point lead at 79-49.

IUPUI MEN’S BASKETBALL
IUPUI FALLS IN FINALE OF ROCK HILL CLASSIC TO HOLY CROSS, 74-61
ROCK HILL, S.C. – The IUPUI basketball team dropped the finale of the Rock Hill Classic to Holy Cross on Sunday (Nov. 19), falling to the Crusaders, 74-61. Bryce Monroe scored a team-high 15 points in the loss while Abdou Samb chipped in nine points and four boards off the Jaguars’ bench.
Junior Jlynn Counter finished with eight points, seven rebounds and four assists and Kidtrell Blocker contributed eight points and seven boards. Joe Octave paced Holy Cross (2-4) with 22 points and Bo Montgomery added 12 points and five assists.
The three-point line continued to befuddle the Jaguars as Holy Cross hit on 10-of-26 attempts (38.5 percent) while the Jaguars were just 2-of-12 (16.7 percent) with Monroe hitting both after the outcome was well in hand.
IUPUI (2-4) whittled a Holy Cross 14-point lead back to four with 12:20 to play when Samb dropped in a layup from the right block. After the two teams traded points, IUPUI had the chance to cut into the Holy Cross lead, but two missed shots sandwiched around two missed free throws kept the margin at four.
Octave retaliated by making a contested three to spark a 14-5 rally that pushed the lead back to 13. The IUPUI offense, which had been efficient to that point in the second half, went just 1-of-8 during the five-minute span to lose contact with the Crusaders.
IUPUI shot an efficient 46 percent from the floor and outscored Holy Cross 42-26 in the paint, while also winning the glass, 31-30. However, it was the three-point line that proved to be the difference as Octave hit 4-of-7 from deep and Joe Nugent and DeAndre Williams connected on two apiece.
The IUPUI bench produced 28 points as John Egbuta finished with seven points and Vincent Brady II and DJ Jackson tallied six apiece.
The Jaguars will now return home to face Cleary University at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 25 inside Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

Grace Courtney has been a consistent top dual meet performer this year, and she now owns cuts for Zones in all three NCAA events. She won the 1-meter (300.25) and finished second in the 3-meter (293.30). Courtney won the prelim of the platform event with a PR of 279.90 but was held out of the final due to a wrist injury.
Claire Feick earned her first cut for Zones this year, finishing fourth in the 3-meter with a score of 281.05. Katy Raby notched a third-place finish on the platform (252.80) and is also Zones-bound in the event. It was a personal best score for the freshman.

BOTH SWIM SQUADS TAKE FOURTH AT OHIO STATE FALL INVITE
COLUMBUS, Ohio — There were gold medals, school records and Olympic Trials cuts galore this weekend, as Notre Dame headed east for the three-day Ohio State Fall Invitational. As a team, the No. 10 men finished fourth, and the women also took fourth.
Starting on the men’s side, U.S. National Team member Chris Guiliano continues to prove he is one of the nation’s best. Guiliano won the 50 free (18.84), 100 free (41.30) and 200 free (1:32.14). He broke his own school records in the 50 and 100, and he earned an NCAA A cut in the 100 as well. He was one of just two male swimmers at the meet to earn an individual A cut. Guiliano was already headed to Olympic Trials this summer, but he further solidified his standing by going under the Trials mark in all three events in prelims. His LCM 100 free time of 47.98 was more than 2 seconds under the Olympic Trials cut.
Sophomore Tommy Janton won the 200 back (1:40.34), and Division III record holder Tanner Filion took second (1:42.21). In the 100, Janton, Filion and Marcus Gentry all earned Olympic Trials qualifying times.

Notre Dame also broke three relay school records:
200 free relay: El-Araby, Guiliano, Janton, Filion
400 free relay: Guiliano, El-Araby, Janton, Filion
400 medley relay: Janton, Tyler Christianson, Cason Wilburn, Guiliano
Moving to the women, Grace Brenneman notched herself her first school record with a 25.97 LCM performance in the 50 free. The local product out of Elkhart, Ind., ultimately finished 18th in the event with a season-best performance of 23.11.
Madelyn Christman continued her superb junior year with a fourth-place finish in the 100 back. Her time of 53.29 is a season-best and an NCAA B cut. She also finished 12th in the 200 back (1:55.39) and 17th in the 50 free (23.03). Her 50 free time in prelims was a personal best time (26.41).
Rookie Abigail O’Sullivan has had a couple of notable swims in her short Irish career, and she snuck into the A final of the 200 fly on Saturday and finished 10th (2:03.14). Senior Megan Deuel was there with her and took eighth (1:58.69). That is an NCAA B cut.
Select Irish swimmers will now head to the U.S. Open after the Thanksgiving holiday. The meet will be held from Nov. 30-Dec. 3 in Greensboro, N.C.
EVANSVILLE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL
ACES OVERWHELMED BY MICHIGAN STATE IN 105-49 LOSS
EAST LANSING, Mich. – The University of Evansville women’s basketball team struggled with the Michigan State Spartan’s size and finish in Sunday afternoon’s game.
The Aces offense never quite found its rhythm in a tough matchup with the Spartans in East Lansing. Point guard Kynidi Mason Striverson was the only UE player to score in double-figures with 16 points in 33 minutes of action. Redshirt senior Celine Dupont led the way on defense with seven rebounds and three assists.
The Aces struggled early at the Breslin Center, only shooting 15% from the field over the first quarter. UE found most of its production in the paint from its forwards in the first ten minutes. Freshman forward Neveah Thomas and redshirt senior forward Celine Dupont had Evansville’s only four points in the quarter.
UE found its offense in the second quarter, improving to 38.5% shooting from the floor and making a three. Junior forward Alana Striverson broke out for the Aces, making five points in under 20 seconds in the final two minutes of the first half. Striverson made Evansville’s lone three of the half from just outside the right side of the arc. UE headed into the break trailing 51-20.
Things didn’t get any easier for the Aces in the third as they again struggled to get in the basket. Guard Julia Palomo had Evansville’s first points of the half with a second-chance layup three minutes in. Point guard Kynidi Mason Striverson led UE in the quarter with eight points on 62.5% shooting.
The Aces closed out the game focusing on defense. Forward Maggie Hartwig put in two baskets to lead Evansville with four points. UE’s entire bench made it into the game through the fourth quarter while point guard Tene Smith scored her first basket of the season. Smith ended the game for the Aces with a bank in three in the final five seconds.
Evansville shot 17-61 (27.9%) from the floor and 12-15 (80%) from the free throw line. UE had six assists as well across the floor. On defense, the Aces pulled down 30 rebounds, grabbed two steals, and made three blocks. Evansville benefited from 11 second-chance points compared to the Spartans seven.
The Aces get a week off for the Thanksgiving holiday and return to action on Sunday, Nov. 26. UE travels to the Windy City to take on the Chicago State Cougars. Tip-off from Chicago is set for 1 p.m. on the 26th.

SOUTHERN INDIANA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL
USI VISITS MISSOURI FOR FIRST ROAD TRIP
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – After a 3-0 homestand to begin the 2023-24 season, University of Southern Indiana Women’s Basketball hits the road for the first time when the Screaming Eagles visit the University of Missouri on Monday at 7 p.m.
Monday’s game can be seen on SEC Network Plus through ESPN and heard on 95.7 FM The Spin.
The game at Mizzou (3-1) begins a two-game road swing for USI and will be the first of two against Power-5 conference opponents in the coming week. Following Monday’s contest at Missouri of the Southeastern Conference, the Eagles will trek north next Sunday, November 26, to face Purdue University out of the Big Ten Conference. The matchup is also the first of three non-conference road games for Southern Indiana.
USI is off to a 3-0 start for the first time since the 2020-21 season, which also happens to be the last season Southern Indiana began a season 4-0. The Screaming Eagles earned their third win of the season on Thursday with a 66-60 home run against Northern Illinois University. USI is the only unbeaten team in the Ohio Valley Conference.
Thursday’s victory against the Huskies was a close, back-and-forth battle from beginning to end, featuring tough defense throughout. The game was tied at 60 with under two minutes to play. USI grabbed the lead for good on a clutch three-pointer by junior guard Vanessa Shafford (Linton, Indiana) with 20 seconds left and iced the game at the foul line.
The Eagles shot 42 percent overall on Thursday, hitting seven threes, and won the rebounding battle, 39-37. Shafford led all scorers with 21 points, which was three off her career high, and matched a career-best 14 rebounds toward her sixth career double-double. Redshirt senior guard Addy Blackwell (Bloomington, Indiana) scored 14 points, while senior forward Madi Webb (Bedford, Indiana) had 10 points.
Shafford’s scoring performance on Thursday was her 30th career double-figure game and fifth outing in a USI uniform scoring 20 or more. The rebounding effort was her eighth career double-digit game on the glass. Plus, the 21 points and 14 rebounds against NIU was also Shafford’s third career double-double of tallying at least 20 points and 10 rebounds. In 2022-23, Shafford posted 21 points and 11 rebounds twice, achieving the feat against Bowling Green State University and Tennessee Tech University last season.
Through three games, Shafford paces the squad with 12 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and four steals per game. Her 12 points per contest are just ahead of Blackwell’s 11 points and Webb’s 10.7 points per game average.
Missouri is off to a 3-1 start this season with all three wins coming in Columbia, Missouri. The Tigers’ only blemish so far is a 93-85 loss at Saint Louis University on November 12. Missouri opened the season with back-to-back home wins against Belmont University and Indiana State University.
Most recently, Missouri defeated the University of North Alabama, 83-72, last Tuesday. The Tigers outscored the Lions 23-12 in the first quarter, and that 11-point difference held the rest of the way. Missouri graduate forward and All-SEC honoree Hayley Frank had a game-high 29 points. The Tigers had two players post double-doubles. Sophomore guard Ashton Judd registered 10 points and 12 rebounds, and senior guard Mama Dembele collected 12 points with 10 steals.
On the season, the Tigers are averaging 84.5 points on 48.7 percent shooting. Plus, Missouri is shooting over 39 percent from three and has posted 44.5 rebounds and 18 assists per game. Mizzou has five players averaging double figures. Judd tops the squad at 18 points and 7.5 boards per contest. Second in scoring is freshman guard Grace Slaughter with 15.3 points. Right behind her is Frank at 14.8 points and Dembele with 11 points per outing. Dembele also leads the team with 7.8 assists and 4.5 takeaways per game.
Monday will be the first all-time meeting between Southern Indiana and Missouri.
UINDY MEN’S SOCCER
GREYHOUNDS BLANK STORM, ADVANCE IN NCAA TOURNAMENT
INDIANAPOLIS – The UIndy men’s soccer team advanced to the third round of the NCAA Championship Tournament after defeating Lake Erie 1-0.
The sole goal was scored by Bobby Turner in the 75th minute. That was the first Greyhound goal in 294:48 minutes of action, with the last goal was scored against Truman St. on Nov. 5th in the GLVC Tournament Quarterfinals. The Hounds have also not let in a goal in 317:18 minutes, also done against Truman.
INS & OUTS
The first half was a back and forth between the two teams, possession was maintained equally by UIndy and Lake Erie. The Hounds had zero shots, and Storm had one.
Turner’s goal was the highlight of the second quarter. He achieved this after receiving the ball from Niklas Thanhofer off of another UIndy shot.
From Head Coach Gabe Hall on the win…
“I wouldn’t say it was our best performance. But the guys showed a lot of scrappiness and grit in their game today, and they found a way to get a result. At the end of the end of the day, and at this time of year, that’s all that really matters is finding a way to get a result.”
Hall aboutTurner’s Goal…
“I think that is something about our team is we’re dangerous in set pieces. So we get opportunities, good scoring opportunities. Bobby attacked the ball, didn’t give up on it during the second chance and finished.”
Hall on moving on in the NCAA Tournament…
“It’s always good when you get to play after Thanksgiving.”

A REMATCH OF MSFA CHAMPIONS: NO. 5 MARIAN HOSTS NO. 12 ST. XAVIER IN NAIA FCS SECOND ROUND
INDIANAPOLIS – On Saturday November 18, the NAIA announced the second round matchups for the 2023 NAIA FCS Second Round, with the fifth-ranked Marian football team learning they will host No. 12 St. Xavier.

Marian held St. Xavier under 50 yards rushing in the win last season, while Stevens four-touchdown game tied the program record for most receiving touchdowns in a single game.
Saturday’s game will be the 17th meeting between Marian and St. Xavier. The Knights have won the last two matchups in the series, while the Cougars hold the series lead with a 10-6 mark.

7th Grey Cup
November 20, 1915 – Varsity Stadium, Toronto – the 7th Grey Cup was played.: The Hamilton Tigers won their second title as they defeated the Toronto Rowing Association, 13-7. This contest was more of a rugby game than our modern football and was sponsored by the Canadian Rugby Union. In 1966 the CRU transferred the care of the Cup to the Canadian Football League according to the Canadian Encyclopedia.
Gipp’s final game
November 20, 1920 – Northwestern Field, Chicago , Illinois – Notre Dame’s George Gipp played in his last game on this date against the Northwestern Purple. Gipp was ill at the time and was suffering from a shoulder injury that he received in the game against Indiana a week earlier. According to Irish Legends, George entered the field as the fans, a record 20,000 at Northwestern Field, chanted, “We want Gipp!.” Gipp responded to the love from the fans as he promptly threw a touchdown pass to end Eddie Anderson. The Irish won the game 33-7, but the ice-covered field and cold weather did not help Gipp’s weakened condition, and three weeks later, he was dead at the age of 25.
November 20, 1977 – Seattle Kingdome -Seattle Seahawks Wide receiver, Steve Largent began his NFL streak of 177 consecutive games with a reception against the Houston Oilers.

November 20, 1977 – Soldier Field -Walter Payton of the Chicago Bears rushed for an NFL record of 275 yards in one game. The Chicago Tribune has the story of Payton’s third season when he broke O.J. Simpson’s mark of 273 on his final carry of a 10-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
November 20, 1982 – Stanford Cardinal Quarterback John Elway moved his team down the field and into field goal range with just eight seconds remaining to allow Mark Harmon to kick a 35-yard field goal, and give Stanford the lead at 20-19. It looked like the Cardinal had the upset victory in the bag, according to history.com’s segment on the play. Elway and friends may have scored just a hair too fast as the Cardinal still would need to kick the ball to Cal. They did so in squib kick fashion and Cal players used everything in the book on this final play of the game as they proceeded to lateral the ball five times just as they were about to be tackled. Cal’s Kevin Moen received the final backwards toss and started running down the field, when the Stanford band ran out onto the field to celebrate what they thought was a Cardinal victory. Moen weaved the extra traffic of musicians , even banging into a trombone player before he finally made it to the end zone! The Bears claimed a come from behind victory in the most memorable of fashions!
November 20, 1983 – NY Giants Butch Woolfolk set a new NFL record of 43 attempts rushing against the Philadelphia Eagles.
