College football: LSU routs Missouri in Orgeron’s debut

BATON ROUGE — In Ed Orgeron’s debut, LSU (3-2, 2-1 SEC) amassed a 634 yards of total offense and dominated Missouri on both sides of the ball to hand the first-time visitors to Tiger Stadium a 42-7 defeat on Saturday Night.Orgeron took over as interim head coach on Sunday when Les Miles was relieved of his duties following a 2-2 start to the 2016 season.“A tremendous day for the Tiger family,” Orgeron said in his postgame press conference. “I’m really proud of our players, our coaches, coming to work on Monday, of believing in what we’re doing and our preparation on a daily basis. I give the credit to all the players, the accountability for this football team.”LSU running backs Derrius Guice and Darrel Williams led the Tigers to a school record for total offense in SEC games, previously 630 yards set in 1987 at Ole Miss and 1967 against Mississippi State.With Leonard Fournette sidelined with an injury, both had career nights. Guice carried 17 times for 163 yards, while Williams had 21 carries for 130 yards. Each scored three touchdowns.Quarterback Danny Etling also had a splendid outing, 19-of-30 for 216 yards. He completed passes to nine different receivers, with Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural catching four passes apiece.LSU’s 418 rushing yards was its most in an SEC game since Oct. 30, 1976, against Ole Miss (426).“The thing I liked about this game is we played for sixty minutes,” Orgeron said. “We put the pedal to the metal and therewas not going to be any let up by our football team. I’m looking forward to go watch the film, obviously there’s going to be a lot of things to correct. But I think they’re going to believe in each other, believe in what we’re doing.” The homestanding Tigers had possession for 42:33 – its highest on record (dating to 1978).Missouri quarterback Drew Lock was 17-of-37 passing for 167 yards. He scored the visiting Tigers’ only touchdown, a 21-yard catch on a reverse-and-pass from wide receiver Eric Laurent. Ish Witter led Missouri with 48 of his team’s 77 net rushing yards.LSU opened the scoring at the 6:46 mark of the first quarter on a brilliant 42-yard touchdown run by Guice. The dash, which featured a key block from wide receiver Russell Gage, culminated an 85-yard, nine-play march to give the Bayou Bengals a 7-0 lead.At the end of the first quarter, LSU held an 8-1 advantage in first downs, and the Tigers had 158 yards of total offense, compared to Mizzou’s 31 yards.LSU halted a Missouri drive early in the second quarter when Tre’Davious White intercepted Mizzou’s Drew Lock at the Bayou Bengals’ 11-yard line. The interception was the sixth of White’s career and his second this season.LSU took advantage of the turnover, driving 89 yards on 13 plays, with the march ending on Guice’s four-yard scoring burst. The touchdown gave Guice, a sophomore from Baton Rouge, the first multi-TD game of his career.Guice increased the lead to 21-0 with 4:40 left in the first half with a 37-yard touchdown sprint, capping a 93-yard, five-play march, the longest TD drive of the season for LSU.Guice finished the first half with 136 yards on 13 carries, scoring three touchdowns and averaging 10.3 yards per attempt.LSU’s Homecoming festivities at halftime included the crowning of Queen Natalie Burges, a senior from Katy, Texas, and King Jacques Petit, a senior from Luling, La.LSU started strong in the second half, covering 75 yards in eight plays on the first drive of the third quarter, with Williams finishing the drive on a 1-yard TD surge.LSU had 465 yards in total offense and 24 first downs through three quarters, while limiting Mizzou to nine first downs and 194 total yards entering the fourth period.LSU added another touchdown at the 10:00 mark of the fourth quarter, when Williams scored a on two-yard TD run to cap an 86-yard, 10-play march.The play gave Williams two touchdowns in a game for the third time in his career, as he also accomplished the feat last season versus South Carolina and in 2014 against UL-Monroe.The drive was highlighted by a 41-yard pass from Etling to wide receiver D.J.Chark, who made an acrobatic catch on a tipped ball.LSU led 35-0.Missouri put together its only scoring drive midway through the fourth quarter, using a reverse and pass from wide receiver Eric Laurent to Lock for a 21-yard touchdown with 6:11 to play.— Bill Franques, LSU Sports InformationTop Expat InsuranceExpat Living in Hong Kong without Health Insurance?Top Expat Insurance|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Secret Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unblock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoCelebsland.com9 Celebrity Before-And-After Plastic Surgery|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Trick Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unlock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAspireAbove.comRemember Abby from NCIS?

Cougars play three of last four games at home

first_imgShare this:FacebookTwitter Campbell County Football enters tonight’s game at home with Karns with one answer and a couple of questions.   The answer comes in what had just been rumors for much of the season about a potentially ineligible player playing for the Powell Panthers.  The TSSAA confirmed what many were thinking and talking about with an official letter sent to Powell High School on Wednesday outlining that Powell would be forced to forfeit its six wins.  SEE the letter here.The decision by the TSSAA gives one region win to Campbell, Karns and Clinton; Region 3 teams that lost games earlier this season to Powell.  The move offers new life to all three teams that up until Wednesday had not won a region game this season.  Halls, Cumberland County and Lenoir City were also awarded wins in their games with Powell this season.Two questions for Campbell will not be answered until the Cougars go through pre-game warm-ups this evening.  That’s whether or not Christian Shouse and Preston Bowman will be healthy enough to play in tonight’s game against the Karns Beavers.Christian Shouse, wideout and defensive back, missed the fourth quarter at Powell last week with what was thought to be a concussion.Campbell has missed Preston Bowman for almost six weeks. This week is the first week he’s been able to practice though it’s been non-contact. He, too, will be evaluated in warm-ups to see if he can return to his flanker and secondary duties.The Cougars are 2 & 4 in all games with losses through their first two region contests. Karns has struggled to win one game, 48-22 over Scott, though has averaged 25 points per game. The Beavers are 0 & 4 on the road and in region games and have a 1 and 6 record.Coverage over the WLAF – B & M Tires Sports Network begins Friday at 7:00 pm over AM 1450, FM 100.9 and The Cougars on WLAF are brought to you by these outstanding corporate partners: Terry’s Pharmacy, United Cumberland Bank, Senator Ken Yager, PCUD, Tracy Lobertini and Alco Builders and Realty, Lace to Pearls, Community Trust Bank, B & M Tires, Charley’s Pizza, State Farm Agent Tabatha Smith, First National Bank, Doyle’s Tire Shop, Cumberland Gap Medical, Rice Oil-Marathon, TCAT, Fazoli’s, Norris Lake Insurance, Riggs Drug Jacksboro, LUB, Valley Roofing, Byrge Screen Printing, State Representative Dennis Powers, Gray Insurance Agency and Peoples Bank of the South.(WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/05/2018-6AM)last_img read more

Corona Champs to be crowned tonight

first_img– Sparta face Bent Street in finalTHE top prize of the Corona Beer Futsal tournament sponsored by Namilco is up for grabs tonight when the final takes place at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.Longtime rivals Sparta Boss and Bent Street take the centre stage with the two renewing a rivalry dating back just over three years.Sparta, as more often than not, has been considered winners especially considering their strong line-up in the past, but whether a number of their newer players are able to step up to the plate is left to be seen.Their relaxed style of play may be something that many pundits don’t favour much, but it has gotten them to the finals so something must be working.On the converse end, there is Bent Street. They will be eager to show their fans and those in attendance that they can cast the jinx plaguing them against their longtime rivals.But they must be wary and not put themselves under too much pressure for tonight’s final; their natural game of attacking play has worked well for them thus far.Both teams must also be wary of their opponents’ ability to counter attack and a fire cracker is expected when things get going from 23:00.The third place play off is also billed for this evening with Leopold Street and Alpha Warriors.last_img read more

Manchester United player’s agent reveals three different approaches from Barcelona for…

first_imgHe was linked with a handful of clubs and Barcelona were credited with an interest in the 31-year-old.However, the attacking midfielder ended the speculation and committed his future to the Red Devils by signing a new contract in June 2019.The former Chelsea star’s current deal at Old Trafford lasts until 2021 and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side retain an option to further extend his stay by a year.Mata is represented by his father, Juan Manuel Mata Rodríguez, and the latter has given an interview to VIP Deportivo.When asked if Solskjaer’s man is a ‘footballer with the Barca DNA’ and if there was a formal approach from the Catalan club for the United player, Juan Mata Sr said: “Indeed, as he is a player who has a DNA very similar to that [Barcelona’s style] football.“I agree with the Spanish national team, with colleagues of that style, because there were three occasions to sign for Barcelona,” he said.Embed from Getty Images“The first one was when he was at Valencia. Then when he was transferred to Chelsea, they also thought of Juan and there was a third one recently where there were also possibilities.“However, in all of them, Juan was lucky that he was in big clubs. This did not give that circumstance [to leave] because, thank God, he was in very important clubs.”When quizzed how his son is at United and if Mata Jr is loved by the club and their fans, his father explained: “Well yes. Upon arrival he was quite important because at that time he was the most important transfer in the history of Manchester United. He had a welcome, arrived by helicopter at the training centre and it was quite an event.“And after that, staying in a team as big as Manchester United, he’s spent six seasons at the highest level, playing at least 30 games per year and next to those teammates who are proud to see who they have played with. Juan is a player who is entering United’s history and has won titles.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Alexander-Arnold becomes youngest Liverpool player in 20 years to score for England
