shing on two carries in the first half, staked the Mean Green to a 21-10 lead early in the third when he slithered through the l Antworten

WEST POINT, N.Y. -- North Texas coach Seth Littrell seemed a little worn out at the end of the game, and it was understandable. The Mean Green had beaten Army for the first time in five tries and he had repeatedly jumped and spun around on the sidelines amidst a flurry of turnovers by the Black Knights.Facing the second-rated defense in the nation, Jeffrey Wilson rushed for 160 yards and three touchdowns and North Texas beat Army 35-18 on a wet, raw Saturday at Michie Stadium.We ended up getting seven turnovers, and thats key, Littrell said. Defensive guys did a great job of making those opportunities count. I was a bonehead in the first half, to be honest. We should have run the ball more.Fresh from a bye week, North Texas (4-3) rallied in the second half behind Wilson, who was coming off a career-high 188-yard performance two weeks ago against Marshall. Wilson scored on a 41-yard run and 1-yard plunge in the third quarter as the Mean Green stunned the Black Knights.Without a doubt, theres no other answer, simply our O-line, Wilson said. They came out today with fire in their eyes and I could see if from the jump. We knew we wasnt going to start off fast, but we know that if we keep on picking away and picking away and picking away that well eventually do what we came to do. And thats exactly what happened.Army (4-3) entered the game ranked second against the run, allowing just 99 yards per game.Wilson, held to seven yards rushing on two carries in the first half, staked the Mean Green to a 21-10 lead early in the third when he slithered through the left side of the defensive line and raced untouched for 41 yards and a touchdown. He had 153 yards on 13 carries in the second.The Black Knights seemed ready to counter right back, but quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled a snap on fourth-and-inches at midfield and the Mean Green took possession.Its hard to score when you dont have the ball, Army coach Jeff Monken said. To give the ball back to them is agonizing. Those plays kill drives, kill the momentum.Moments later, Army defensive back Elijah Riley was poised to make an interception but slipped down as he turned to catch the ball. That left Willie Robinson all alone for a 26-yard catch and Wilsons 1-yard run boosted the lead to 28-10 midway through the third.They did a good job defensively against our offense in the first half, Littrell said. What they do against the run game has been impressive, so I probably was trying to get the back end going a little bit. We had some stuff we missed early. The way our offensive line came off the ball and Jeffrey ran the ball, that was the difference.North Texas sealed the victory on a turnover. Army was driving at midfield early in the fourth, but after a long gain on the first reception of his career that had caught the North Texas defense off-guard, tight end Dalton Mendenhall had the ball stripped by Eric Jenkins and the Mean Green recovered at its own 12-yard line.Army finished with 302 yards rushing, 53 yards below its nation-leading average. Bradshaw led with 90 yards on 24 carries.Monken had a simple explanation for the loss.We got whipped in every phase, he said. I dont know if theres much more to say.THE TAKEAWAY:ARMY: If the Black Knights can control the turnovers, they still can contend to play in the postseason. Army cant afford to make those mistakes to have a chance to win, with the likes of Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Air Force and Navy still on the schedule.NORTH TEXAS: With a freshman quarterback at the helm and a solid running game, the Mean Green can be a contender in Conference USA. When Wilson is on, they win. In the teams first three victories, he averaged 142.7 rushing yards, just 44.3 in the losses.UP NEXT:Army: Travels to play Wake Forest of the Atlantic Coast Conference on Saturday.North Texas: Plays at Texas-San Antonio on Saturday.---AP College Football Website: Kekis on Twitter: Hoodies Outlet Free Shipping . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap.

The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Cheap Hoodies For Sale .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Wholesale Hoodies .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter came into this series with the Tampa Bay Rays showing a real urgency, challenging his team to push for every win possible as they chase the Blue Jays and Red Sox in the American League East.Baltimore has responded in a big way, getting two easy wins over the Rays to pull within one game of Toronto for the division lead, with a chance to sweep Tampa Bay as they close out the series Wednesday afternoon.This is a tough place to play, said Showalter, whose team is now 11-3 against the Rays this season. Youve got to be a self-starter and get yourself ready to play, because next thing you know, you can get ambushed. Theyre capable of good baseball.The Rays are in danger of taking their first series sweep since the All-Star break as a team that had a 3-24 stretch going into the break has consistently avoided losing streaks like that in the past two months.But on the very day they fired hitting coach Derek Shelton, the Rays went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position Tuesday, getting a home run from the first batter of the game, then just one unearned run the rest of the way.I know its been ugly the last couple of days, manager Kevin Cash said after Tuesdays loss, his teams third straight. When you have some big innings like weve had go against us, it appears worse than it is at timess.dddddddddddd We want to win, and were not playing to our abilities, but we have played better baseball as of late.Wednesdays Orioles starter, Dylan Bundy, has come a long way since making his first start of the season at the Trop against the Rays. Transitioning out of the bullpen, he lasted only 3 1/3 innings, giving up four runs in a 5-2 loss.But since then hes gone 6-3, becoming a steady part of the rotation. In his last outing, he threw 5 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball, holding the Yankees to two hits in a win on Friday.Rays starter Drew Smyly has had success against Baltimore in his career, going 4-1 with a 3.22 ERA in nine appearances. That wasnt the case in his last outing, however, as he gave up eight earned runs, matching a career high, in five innings in a loss on June 26 that included a grand slam to Chris Davis and home runs to Mark Trumbo and Jonathan Schoop.The Rays had lessened the sting of their late-season irrelevance by playing much improved baseball in the last two months, but three straight losses have taken away some of that momentum.The best we can do is bounce back tomorrow and play a good ballgame, said Cash, who will face the same Orioles team four more times next weekend in Baltimore.
