  • Trojans run wild on Cardinals

    Fans around the area got months worth of athletic relief this weekend as high school finally got rolling in the area. It’s safe to say that junior halfback Deon Jenkins was ready for the season, too.Jenkins rushed for 361 yards and six touchdowns Friday as the Trojans roared to a 50-21 victory over E.D. White in the season opener in Mathews.Coach Keith Menard said the Trojans’ halfback did a little bit of everything in the win, but perhaps most impressive was the that fact that he al...

    LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — When Nicholls' Damion Jeanpiere's muffed punt attempt led to Kansas taking the lead late in the fourth quarter Saturday night, it seemed as though the Colonels' resilient upset attempt could go to waste.But then, using just nine plays, they marched down the field and forced overtime with a game-tying 43-yard field goal. In overtime, Chase Fourcade ran in a 4-yard touchdown, and the Colonels prevailed over the Jayhawks, 26-23, in both teams' season open...

  • LSU takes 'unproven' backfield into clash with Miami

    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU's Nick Brossette and Clyde Edwards-Helaire are hardly the household names the Tigers have been accustomed to featuring at running back.Current NFL players Jeremy Hill, Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice all established their credentials in backup roles and were bona fide pro prospects by the time they became featured rushers at LSU.That is no longer the case as the 25th-ranked Tigers enter their season opener against No. 8 Miami in Dallas on Sunday night.

  • Saints embrace lofty expectations in 2018

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Saints players can't miss the large banner affixed to an exterior wall at team headquarters.On coach Sean Payton's instructions, it was placed near the entrance to the locker room from outdoor practice fields, and reads: "Prove them right."That says all anyone needs to know about the expectations surrounding the Saints, who rode a youth movement to within one play of last season's NFC title game."The guys at the top — we'v...
