Indiana Knocks Off (18) Missouri

Indiana Knocks Off (18) Missouri

ThinkStock(COLUMBIA, Mo.) -- D'Angelo Roberts' three-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds remaining put Indiana ahead 31-27, giving the Hoosiers (2-1) a win over 18th-ranked Missouri on Saturday. It was just the fourth win over an AP-ranked non-conference team in program history.

Neither team held more than a one-score advantage. The Tigers (3-1) scored 10 straight points in the second half, taking a 27-24 lead on Andrew Baggett's 40-yard field goal. However, the reigning Southeastern Conference West champions couldn't hold off the offense of the Hoosiers.

Indiana went 75 yards in just six plays to pull off the upset. Tevin Coleman rushed for 132 total yards, including a 44-yard scamper that set up the winning score. 

"It was a really big win," said Coleman, who missed the final 20 minutes of the first half with cramps. "We came out here with fire. We played until the end."

Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk tossed for 326 yards and two scores to pace the Tigers, while Russell Hansbrough ran for 119 yards.

Mississippi State Outlasts (8) LSU

Mississippi State Outlasts (8) LSU

Football Texture/iStockphoto(BATON ROUGE, La.) -- Mississippi State jumped out to a 17-0 lead over eighth-ranked Louisiana State University (LSU), but had to hold on in the fourth quarter for a 34-29 win. It was the Bulldogs' first victory over LSU since 1999, and their first in Baton Rouge since 1991.

"I probably aged seven to 10 years in the final three minutes of the game," said Mississippi State (4-0) head coach Dan Mullen. "We are trying to build a program and I'll take it. I guess everybody can now write now I have beaten LSU and Alabama once during my career."

Quarterback Dak Prescott, a Louisiana native, controlled tempo through the first three quarters. His 56-yard touchdown run put the Bulldogs up 24-10, while his pass to Jameon Lewis made it a 21-point Bulldog lead.

Trailing 31-10 heading into the fourth quarter, LSU (3-1) stormed back to score 19 unanswered points and threaten to deny the Bulldogs an upset. Brandon Harris found Malachi Dupre for a 31-yard touchdown pass that made it a 34-22 ballgame with less than two minutes remaining. The Tigers then recovered an onside kick, setting up another Harris-Dupre connection to close the gap to five.

LSU got one last chance, holding possession in the final seconds. A last-ditch heave to the endzone was picked off by Will Redmond.

Prescott finished the game with 268 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns, adding another score on the ground.

Wanderlei Silva Retires from MMA

Wanderlei Silva Retires from MMA

Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Veteran mixed martial artist Wanderlei Silva retired abruptly on Friday, announcing his decision in a surprise 13-minute YouTube video. Silva cited "disillusionment" with the UFC, his current employer, as the main reason for his decision to walk away from the sport.

The 38-year-old claimed that the UFC repeatedly attempted to get him to fight when he was not healthy and accused the sports top promotion of paying their athletes with "crumbs." Silva was supposed to fight Chael Sonnen, his opposing coach on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil in May before the bout was rescheduled July. 

"They told me I had to fight on that date and offered me a bunch of money," Silva said. "I asked myself, 'If they have the money, why didn't they offer it to me before?' They always hold on to the money so they underpay athletes."

Silva (35-12-1) made his professional debut in 1996 and eventually won the Pride middleweight championship. The Brazilian has fought exclusively for the UFC since 2007. Currently, he is involved in an issue with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) regarding Silva's dodging of a random drug test.

Timberwolves Offer Max Deal to Bledsoe

Timberwolves Offer Max Deal to Bledsoe

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have reportedly offered a maximum contract to restricted free-agent Eric Bledsoe in hopes of a sign-and-trade deal with the Phoenix Suns, Bledsoe's current team. 

The deal is for a reported four years and $63 million, exceeding the Suns offer of four years and $48 million. Bledsoe has told the Suns, as well as other teams, that he would only consider a max contract but would be willing to sign a qualifying offer worth one year and $3.7 million. By signing that deal, Bledsoe would make himself an unrestricted free agent following the 2014-15 season.

Minnesota had inquired about Bledsoe while shopping all-star forward Kevin Love, but trade talks never reached a serious point. The Timberwolves are hoping to pair Bledsoe with Andrew Wiggins, whom they acquired from Cleveland for Love.

Phoenix has already started making possible arrangements for life after Bledsoe. The Suns signed free-agent Isaiah Thomas and drafted Tyler Ennis in the first-year player draft in June. Bledsoe averaged 17.7 points per game for Phoenix last season.

Jameis Winston’s Suspension Increased

Jameis Winston’s Suspension Increased

Grant Halverson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Citing new findings in their investigation to his sexual and profane outburst at a student union meeting, Florida State announced late Friday they were suspending quarterback Jameis Winston for the full game against No. 22 Clemson on Saturday. Winston had originally been suspended for only the first half.

"Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night," interim Florida State president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a joint statement.

Winston, the reigning Heisman trophy winner, was seen shouting an obscene sexual phrase on campus earlier in the week. The top ranked Seminoles will start sophomore Sean Maguire against the Tigers. Maguire has completed 12 of 26 career passes while at Florida State.

Kershaw Wins 20th Game, Dodgers Clinch Playoff Spot

Kershaw Wins 20th Game, Dodgers Clinch Playoff Spot

Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Despite only throwing five innings, Clayton Kershaw picked up his league-leading 20th win of the season as Los Angeles defeated the Chicago Cubs (68-86) 14-5 on Friday. It was the shortest outing in nearly four months for Kershaw (20-3), who was aided by his offense.

"Obviously, you want to go eight or nine every time and be the reason why your team won," Kershaw said. "But sometimes your team does it for you and you just have to be out there. So that was the way it happened today and I'll take it."

The Dodgers hit four home runs as a team, including two from catcher A.J. Ellis. In total, Los Angeles (88-66) racked up 13 hits against Edwin Jackson (6-15) who was making his first start since coming off the disabled list. 

Los Angeles also clinched a playoff spot with Pittsburgh's 4-2 win over Milwaukee. It's the second straight season the Dodgers will be in the playoffs as they hold a 3 1/2 game lead over San Francisco in the NL West.

Leon Halip/Getty Images(ATLANTA) -- The Atlanta Falcons scored 35 first-half points en route to a 56-14 stomping of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday night.

The game was out of reach by the end of the first quarter, when the Falcons scored 21 points, 14 of them on Matt Ryan touchdown passes. Ryan finished the game completing 21 of 24 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns.                                                    

Falcons receiver Devin Hester scored twice, the second time on a 62-yard punt return that moved him ahead of Deion Sanders for the most return touchdowns in NFL history.

"It's tough to break the record of the guy who is my No. 1 mentor," Hester said. "I'm kind of emotional right now."Tampa Bay (0-3) turned the ball over five times and mustered only 217 yards of offense in the loss. Julio Jones caught nine passes for 161 yards and two touchdowns for Atlanta, which improves its record to 2-1.

Umpire Suspended One Game for Involvement in Papelbon Incident

Umpire Suspended One Game for Involvement in Papelbon Incident

iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- Major League Baseball suspended umpire Joe West one game without pay for grabbing Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon's jersey during an argument Sunday.

West and Papelbon got into the argument after West thought Papelbon made an obscene gesture toward the Philadelphia fans because they booed him.                                                                                                      After West made the ejection, Papelbon ran back out onto the field, bumping West, who then grabbed the pitcher's jersey.                                                                                                                                                

"Joe West handled himself appropriately in ejecting Papelbon after the player's lewd gesture to the fans," Major League Baseball executive vice president Joe Torre said in a statement. "I fully understand that Joe was reacting to a player who was acting aggressively, and can understand his frustration with the situation.

"However, Joe knows that an umpire cannot initiate physical contact with a player just as a player cannot initiate physical contact with an umpire. I spoke to Joe about the incident, and he admitted that there was a better way to handle the situation. I consider this matter closed."

Papelbon has already been suspended seven games by the league after they concluded the gesture was directed at the crowd, and for bumping West.

Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton Out for Season

Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton Out for Season

Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is officially out for the season. Stanton was hit in the face in a game last Thursday by Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers. The beaning resulted in Stanton suffering facial fractures, dental damages, two black eyes and more than 20 stitches. Stanton was examined by doctors in Miami Tuesday when it was decided the 24-year-old needed more time to recover. "As soon as the injury happened, the most important thing was obviously his health," Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. "That was always at the forefront. We wanted to make sure he received the best care he possibly could get from the second he was carted off the field." Despite being done for the season, Stanton is still a top candidate to win the NL MVP. For the season, he hit .288 with 37 home runs, 89 runs scored, 105 RBIs, 13 stolen bases and a .395 on-base percentage.

Injury or Not, Jackson Not ‘Missing This Game’

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(ASHBURN, Va.) -- Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson isn't going to let a shoulder injury stop him from playing against his former team on Sunday. Jackson, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles in the spring after articles came out questioning his character, says despite spraining his left shoulder last week against Jacksonville, he will be on the field Sunday. "I don't think an AC joint is jeopardizing my career in the long haul," Jackson said. "If it's all on me, I'm playing. I don't plan on missing this game." Jackson did not practice Wednesday, but Washington head coach Jay Gruden said the receiver will be a limited participant in practice Thursday. Before being released, Jackson played six seasons with the Eagles. During that time he played in 87 games, catching 356 passes for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns, and also returning four punts for touchdowns.

Vikings Place Peterson on Exempt List

Vikings Place Peterson on Exempt List

Ronald C. Modra/Sports Imagery/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Minnesota Vikings have announced that Adrian Peterson has been placed on the NFL’s Exempt/Commissioner’s Permission list and will not play this Sunday. The decision comes after the team announced earlier this week that it was reinstating him while the legal process involving charges of child abuse against the running back proceeded.The Vikings now say Peterson will not be allowed to participate in any team activities until his legal matters are behind him.The Vikings issued the following statement:

“This has been an ongoing and deliberate process since last Friday’s news. In conversations with the NFL over the last two days, the Vikings advised the League of the team’s decision to revisit the situation regarding Adrian Peterson.  In response, the League informed the team of the option to place Adrian on the Exempt/Commissioner’s Permission list, which will require that Adrian remain away from all team activities while allowing him to take care of his personal situation until the legal proceedings are resolved. After giving the situation additional thought, we have decided this is the appropriate course of action for the organization and for Adrian.”

The statement continues: "We are always focused on trying to make the right decision as an organization. We embrace our role - and the responsibilities that go with it – as a leader in the community, as a business partner and as an organization that can build bridges with our fans and positively impact this great region. We appreciate and value the input we have received from our fans, our partners and the community. While we were trying to make a balanced decision yesterday, after further reflection we have concluded that this resolution is best for the Vikings and for Adrian. We want to be clear: we have a strong stance regarding the protection and welfare of children, and we want to be sure we get this right. At the same time we want to express our support for Adrian and acknowledge his seven-plus years of outstanding commitment to this organization and this community. Adrian emphasized his desire to avoid further distraction to his teammates and coaches while focusing on his current situation; this resolution accomplishes these objectives as well. We will support Adrian during this legal and personal process, but we firmly believe and realize this is the right decision. We hope that all of our fans can respect the process that we have gone through to reach this final decision."

The statement is signed by team owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf.

Orioles Clinch AL East for First Time Since 1997

Baltimore Orioles/MLB(BALTIMORE) -- For the first time since 1997, the Baltimore Orioles are the American League East champions.

"It's everything I hoped for, man. It's an awesome experience," Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis, who has played with Baltimore since 2006, said. "We worked hard all season long to get where we are now. We got one step out of the way. Now we have a couple more steps to go."

First baseman Steve Pearce hit a three-run homer to help the Orioles top the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2, giving the O's their ninth win in 10 games.

"We're AL East champs," Pearce said while celebrating in the clubhouse. "Awesome."

It's the ninth time the Orioles have won the division, but only the second time since 1983, when they won the World Series.

Ubaldo Jimenez (5-9) earned the win, pitching five innings and allowing two hits, two runs, and four walks while striking out six.

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Rich Shultz/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) --  Trailing by seven with five minutes to play, Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles on two scoring drives, the second ending with Cody Parkey hitting a go-ahead field goal with time expiring, as the Eagles clip the Indianapolis Colts, 30-27, Monday night.

The Colts (0-2) never trailed until Parkey hit the game-winning kick. Indianapolis went into halftime up 17-6 after Andrew Luck found tight end Jack Doyle for a two-yard touchdown. The Colts furthered their lead in the second half when Adam Vinatieri's field goal made it 20-6 with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter.

Despite the deficit the Eagles (2-0) never panicked, scoring on two touchdowns in less than two minutes to finish off the third tied 20-20.  The Colts answered back on their first drive of the fourth quarter when Luck threw his third touchdown of the game, a seven-yard pass to Ahmad Bradshaw, to go back up by seven.

The game stayed that way until the the 3:25 mark when Foles found Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard touchdown to tie it up. The Eagles defense made Indianapolis go four and out before Parkey hit the game-winning field goal.

"We felt we had some plays (in the first half), we just couldn't make them," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "But we're going to play 60 minutes and we played 60 minutes."

Darren Sproles made seven catches for 152 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Andrew Luck lost two consecutive games for the first time since joining the NFL, despite throwing three touchdowns.

Bears Score 21 in Fourth, Rally to Beat Niners

Nick Laham/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- The debut of the new Levi's Stadium, the home of the San Francisco 49ers, went perfectly for three quarters. However, the Chicago Bears scored 21 points in the fourth to erase a 13-point deficit and beat the Niners 28-20 on Sunday night.

Colin Kaepernick threw three interceptions, and added a fumble, in the final period while Jay Cutler tossed three touchdowns to help Chicago (1-1) make the comeback on the road. San Francisco (1-1) led 17-0 early in the second quarter, and upped that advantage to 20-7 after three.

Rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller picked off Kaepernick twice in the fourth, giving the offense short fields to work with and plenty of time. His first interception, followed by an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the 49ers quarterback, put the Bears on the San Francisco three yard line. 

Cutler then found tight end Martellus Bennett in the endzone, giving Chicago a 21-20 lead. About four minutes later, Fuller intercepted Kaepernick again which eventually led to a three-yard touchdown pass from Cutler to Brandon Marshall. The wide out finished with three touchdowns on an ankle that was feared to keep him off the field.

Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- The Washington Redskins (1-1) dominated Jacksonville, 41-10 on Sunday, but did it without starting quarterback Robert Griffin III. The third-year signal caller was carted off the field after suffering a dislocated ankle in the first quarter.

Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins played admirably in relief, throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Jaguars (0-2).

Griffin is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, but could miss the remainder of the season.

"I'm just trying to stay in a good place," said Griffin. "Our spirits are high. We're always thinking positive. We'll see what happens tomorrow and whatever information comes out, we'll know what the timetable is from there."

This marks the second time in his career that Griffin faces a potential season-ending injury. In 2012, Griffin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee, forcing him to miss the final four games of the regular season.

Team USA Rolls to FIBA World Cup Gold

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(MADRID) -- Team USA dominated from the start and repeated as World Champion for the first time, defeating Serbia 129-92 in the FIBA World Cup gold medal game on Sunday.

Kyrie Irving was named Tournament MVP and scored 26 points in the final contest. Irving made all six of his three-point attempts, while the team went 15-for-30 from distance.

"Obviously we didn't have a very close game all tournament, but for that to happen we had to play hard for 40 minutes and not relax and not give any inch while we were out there," guard Stephen Curry said.

In total, the U.S. shot 58-percent from the floor in another blowout. The Americans dominated the tournament, posting an average margin of victory of 32.5 points per game. What made the performance more impressive is that it came without the likes of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, or Kevin Durant. James Harden added 23 points for Team USA as eight different players scored in double figures.

Team USA has now won 63 consecutive games and qualified for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images For NASCAR(JOLIET, Ill.) -- Brad Keselowski passed between both Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson to seize the lead with 19 laps to go, winning the MyAFIBStory.com 400 at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday. The win kept Keselowski atop the Chase for the Sprint Cup standings after the first race and guarantees his advancement into the next round.

"Man, the next two weeks are going to be a lot of fun, knowing we don't have to worry too much and we are going to move up," said Keselowski. 

A late crash forced one more restart, but the 2012 Sprint Cup Champion easily pulled away from the field with six laps remaining. It was Keselowski's second-straight trip to victory lane, and his series-leading fifth win of the season.

Jeff Gordon finished second while Kyle Larson took third. The new playoff format in NASCAR will eliminate four drivers every three races during the 10-race Chase. Drivers are able to earn a pass into the next round with a win in the individual event.
