PETERSBURG, Fla. STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Mississippi State is out to prove its recent jump in Southeastern Conference status is no fluke.The Bulldogs program has enjoyed nearly unprecedented success over the past two years, largely thanks to star quarterback Dak Prescott. But Prescott is now in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys, leaving Mississippi State to fend for itself in the difficult Western Division.Safety Brandon Bryant is among the young players who said Mississippi State will miss Prescott, but can be successful without him.There are new faces and new names on every team in the SEC, Bryant said. Everyone in the SEC has the talent, were just ready to go out there for everyone to display it and start playing.Preseason camp started with four quarterbacks -- Nick Fitzgerald, Damian Williams, Elijah Staley and Nick Tiano -- fighting for the job. That list dropped to three when Staley was granted his release and will transfer.Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen is confident all of them can run the teams offense, which has often been dependent on the quarterbacks ability to be a dual threat.There isnt a guy that isnt a good runner so were not limiting you, Mullen said before Staleys departure. None of the skill sets of any of the four quarterbacks is going to limit what we do.The Bulldogs do have some experience returning on defense. Linebacker Richie Brown should anchor the middle of the field after leading the team with 109 tackles last season, including 13 for a loss. Defensive end A.J. Jefferson had 13 1/2 tackles for a loss last season and veterans like Bryant and Kivon Coman will lead the secondary.Here are a few other things to know about Mississippi State:LISTEN TO THE SIRMON: Mississippi States defense will be led by new coordinator Peter Sirmon. The 39-year-old, whoo played seven seasons in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans from 2000-06, comes to the Bulldogs after two seasons at Southern California. Kyle Brodziak Oilers Jersey. Sirmon says hes pleased that his players have adapted to his coaching so quickly. Said Bryant: Its been demanding, but its been great. With all new coaches it is different, but they came in with the attitude of making us all better. We fixed what we needed to do in the spring, now were just ready to roll.ROSS, HOLLOWAY KEYS TO OFFENSE: Mississippi State might still be looking for a quarterback, but it already has some experienced playmakers. Senior receiver Fred Ross returns after catching 88 passes for 1,007 yards and five touchdowns last season. Brandon Holloway is probably the teams most versatile player -- he gained 413 yards rushing, 396 yards receiving and 567 yards on kick returns last season.KEY GAMES: The Bulldogs have four winnable SEC home games against Auburn, Arkansas, Texas A&M and South Carolina. If Mississippi State can take care of business at Davis Wade Stadium, any success on the road will be a bonus. Theres also an interesting non-conference game on the road against BYU on Oct. 14.PREDICTION: Mississippi State will miss Prescott, but should have enough talent to advance to a bowl game for a seventh straight season. The Bulldogs will be competitive in the West, though a lack of elite playmakers makes it difficult to see them near the top with programs like Alabama and LSU.SEASON OPENER: Mississippi State hosts South Alabama on Sept. 3.---Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '

SAN FRANCISCO -- Matt Cain didnt think his 100th career victory would mean much to him until he finally got it. Sergio Aguero Manchester City Jersey .Cain pitched five hitless innings for No. 100 and the San Francisco Giants held the Washington Nationals to three hits in a 3-1 win Sunday.Cain (3-6) struck out five and walked four on 93 pitches. He handed off to George Kontos, who allowed a leadoff single to Bryce Harper in the sixth.That hit me after the game was over, Cain said. I didnt think it was going to be that big of a deal but for it to take three years it feels good, it definitely feels good.Especially with the way it worked out today, we got to use everybody to be a part of it. It was definitely a win that we all needed very much.Almost everybody.Pitcher Madison Bumgarner pinch hit for Cain leading off the bottom of the fifth and hit an opposite-field double off the wall in right. Right-hander Jeff Samardzija, who ran for Bumgarner, scored the winning run.Cain became the sixth Giants pitcher to reach 100 wins since the franchise came to San Francisco in 1958. Juan Marichal (238), Gaylord Perry (134), Tim Lincecum (108), Kirk Rueter (105) and Mike McCormick (104) are the others.He cant remember another time he left with a no-hitter on the line.My pitch count was already high in the fifth inning and I was laboring through most of the innings putting guys on and working out of jams, Cain said. The biggest thing was for us to find a way to win today and the bullpen did a great job, to be able to shut the door and get things done.Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his 24th save. Casilla was among five Giants relievers who combined to allow one run on three hits over four innings.NL West-leading San Francisco has won two straight since losing 11 of 13 following the All-Star break.Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez (6-9) allowed two runs (one earned), six hits and two walks in six innings for his fourth quality start in five outings.Hes throwing strikes, not walking people and getting out of jams when he gets in them, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said.The Giants won despite troubles hitting with runners in scoring position that have dogged them throughout the second half.They were 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position Sunday and are batting .139 (19 for 137) in that department since the All-Star break.They were hitless in their first 11 at-bats with runners in scoring position Sunday until Angel Pagan singled in Denard Span from third with one out in the bottom of the seventh to give San Francisco a 3-1 lead.The Giants scored their first two runs on Pagans fielders choice grounder in the third and third baseman Anthony Rendons throwing error in the fifth.Left fielder Mac Williamson left with an injury in the sixth. He dropped Chris Heiseys flyball on the play but fired to third baseman Conor Gillaspie to force out Rendon. Williamson is day to day with a jammed shoulder, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.RESPECTING THE GAMEAfter getting hit in the arm by a 94-mph fastball from Casilla leading off the ninth, Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman didnt take kindly to the resounding boos he got from Giants fans implying that he was trying to sell home plate umpire Jim Joyce on the call. Bochy challenged the call, but it was upheld.I was fired up when I got hit. Thats not something I normally do, Zimmerman said. The one thing I never do is fake something like that. I have too much respect for the game.TRAINERS ROOMNationals: 2B Daniel Murphy was out of the lineup for a second straight day. He missed Saturdays game with left leg tightness.Giants: CF Span and SS Brandon Crawford were both out of the lineup for a second straight day on Sunday. Span suffered a quadriceps injury beating out an infield hit on Friday. Crawford suffered a bruised thumb on a swing in the same game. Both entered late in the game and are expected to be back in the lineup Tuesday after an off day. ... Rehabbing 3B Matt Duffy (out since June 21 with a left Achilles tendon strain) was scheduled to play seven innings for Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday. He played five innings on Friday.UP NEXTNationals: Washington begins a series at the Arizona Diamondbacks with RHP Stephen Strasburg (14-1, 2.68) on the hill. Strasburg was 4-1 with a 2.08 ERA in July, his best month this season.Giants: San Francisco plays at Philadelphia on Tuesday, and LHP Bumgarner (10-6, 2.09) will pitch. He ranks second in the NL in ERA, but the Giants have lost his last three starts and are 2-6 in his last eight. They havent lost four straight Bumgarner starts since 2013 (Aug. 7 -- Sept. 3). Kyle Walker Manchester City Jersey . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions.

LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. LOS ANGELES -- Ross Stripling wasnt blowing away the Arizona hitters, so when his velocity dipped the rookie gave way to the bullpen.The Dodgers relief corps combined with Stripling on a four-hitter and he helped himself with a go-ahead single in the second inning, leading Los Angeles to a 5-2 victory Tuesday night, the teams fourth straight.I heard my velocity was down. Maybe just one of those days, Stripling said. Maybe a weird day. I was happy to get through five. Im approaching an innings limit.Stripling and fellow rookie Julio Urias are on unspecified innings limits.The NL West leaders remained a season-high four games ahead of San Francisco, which beat Colorado 3-2.Were playing great baseball, right fielder Josh Reddick said. If we keep doing that the rest of the year we wont have to worry about them.Stripling (4-6) allowed two runs and three hits in five innings. The right-hander struck out five and walked none.I didnt want him pushing it, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. I saw his velocity dip down in the fourth. It was more the crispness of the pitches.Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth to earn his 42nd save in 48 chances in his 400th career appearance. He is two from tying his career high saves set two years ago.The Dodgers produced most of their runs on singles a night after hitting five home runs off former teammate Zack Greinke in a 10-2 victory in the series opener. They had 11 hits.This month and month and a half for them has been pretty amazing how they have been swinging the bat, Arizona starter Shelby Miller said. They were pretty aggressive out of the first inning.Miller (2-11) extended his losing streak to five games after giving up five runs and a career-high-tying 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings, his shortest start since May 1 against Colorado. The right-hander struck out two and walked none in his second start since returning from the minors on Aug. 31. He has lost 11 of 13 decisions since being acquired in a five-player trade from Atlanta last offseason.Im struggling with the loss a little bit, Miller said, just kind of tired of losing.Striplings first career RBI single down the first-base line with two outs in the second gave Los Angeles the lead for good at 2-1. Justiin Turner tied the game with a RBI single in the bottom of the first. Phil Foden Manchester City Jersey. Stripling, who attended Texas A&M, has known Miller for a while. Miller committed to the Aggies to play baseball, but instead signed with St. Louis after being drafted in 2009.Thats pretty funny, Stripling said. I squeaked it right by that bag. Im certainly no expert with the bat. I didnt hit in college or even high school, so were learning on the run.The Dodgers produced three runs on five hits in the third. Yasmani Grandals RBI groundout made it 3-1 before Reddick and Andrew Toles came up with RBI singles with two outs for a 5-1 lead.A.J. Pollocks two-out homer in the first and Jake Lambs sacrifice fly in the fourth accounted for Arizonas runs. The D-backs have lost four of six.SERIES WINThe Dodgers extended their home unbeaten streak against the D-backs to 10 straight series (9-0-1). They last lost to Arizona in Los Angeles from June 10-12, 2013. The Dodgers are 23-7 at home against the D-backs in that span.TRAINERS ROOMD-backs: Recalled LHP Steve Hathaway, RHP Dominic Leone, RHP Matt Koch, OF Mitch Haniger and INF-OF Peter OBrien from Triple-A Reno.

He is 3-2 with a 3.61 ERA in 62 appearances with the big league club, having last pitched for the Dodgers on Aug. 29 at Colorado.UP NEXTD-backs: LHP Robbie Ray (7-12, 4.36 ERA) is averaging 11.03 strikeouts per nine innings, fourth-best in the NL. He didnt factor in the decision in his last outing on Sept. 2 at Colorado, allowing six runs -- five earned -- and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.Dodgers: RHP Brock Stewart (0-2, 7.94) last pitched for the Dodgers on Aug. 28 against the Cubs, allowing two hits in five scoreless innings while not factoring in the 1-0 victory. He struck out a career-high eight and walked two. ' ' '

                                      NEW ORLEANS -- While Rams rookie Jared Goff couldnt keep up with Drew Brees and the prolific New Orleans Saints, he just might have given Los Angeles hope that its No. Adidas Yeezy Cz . 1 overall draft pick will in fact pan out.There were moments of brilliance as he showed off his touch, strength, and sometimes, guts, while throwing for 214 yards and three touchdowns in his first road start on Sunday. He made some mistakes, too, losing a fumble deep in Rams territory and throwing an interception near midfield. But coach Jeff Fisher sounded as if he was more concerned with his defense than Goffs performance in a 49-21 loss.Jared did a really nice job in the first half, especially in the two-minute drive, Fisher said. I thought he got better, which was encouraging.Goff is the latest in a string of heralded rookie QBs making themselves at home in the Superdome in one of their first road starts.Robert Griffin III in 2012, along with Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota in 2015, all led their teams to wins at New Orleans, completing a combined 70 percent of their passes for nearly 900 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions.Goff built on his first career start a week ago at home, a 14-10 loss to Miami in which he was just 55 percent passing with no touchdowns or interceptions.I obviously felt a lot more comfortable in my second game, just from experience, Goff said. Felt better out there -- was able to see it a lot better and it began to slow down a little bit for sure about halfway through the first half.Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro was impressed with the former California quarterback, who delivered several completions under pressure, releasing the ball accurately moments before absorbing heavy hits.He has pretty good arm talent. Hes young. Youre on the road in a hostile environment, and his books just starting, Vaccaro said. Each day, each month, each year is a new chapter for him. Hell keep growing.Against the Saints, he spread the ball around, hitting seven different receivers while completing 20 of 32 attempts. The Rams converted both of their red-zone chances with touchdown passes to Kenny Britt and Lance Kendricks.Goffs first career touchdown pass was a perfect throw to Tavon Austin, who caught the 24-yard scoring strike in stride in the end zone for a 7-0 Rams lead.Goff led Los Angeles on an eight-play, 79-yard drive at the end of the second quarter that ended with the touchdown pass to Kendricks and cut New Orleans lead to 28-21.He made some really good throws in the two-minute drive off his back foot and put the ball in the end zone, Fisher said.Added running back Todd Gurley: He definitely felt a lot more comfortable this game than last game -- came out spinning it that first half.He also, however, showed an inability to get rid of the ball when the pocket was collapsing on him. He was sacked three times and was hit a total of eight times when dropping back to pass.That might be what Goff focuses on this week as he prepares for the New England Patriots and his third start.I dont want to be out here saying Im happy with what we did or what I did or anything in between because Im really not if we dont win, Goff said. And thats the bottom line.---For more NFL coverage: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Yeezy Cena Cz .

HOUSTON -- Tom Savage hadnt played in a meaningful game in more than two years before coming in for the Houston Texans after Brock Osweiler was benched Sunday.The long layoff didnt appear to slow him as he threw for 260 yards in less than three quarters to help Houston rally for a 21-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.It was nuts, Savage said. But I think the guys did a good job of rallying around me and making some plays for me. Im just happy to be a part of this team.It was the first regular-season appearance since Dec. 14, 2014 for Savage, who missed all of last season with a shoulder injury.He completed passes, he took care of the ball, coach Bill OBrien said. I thought he was decent at getting us in and out of the huddle. I think that needs to speed up, but I thought overall he managed the game pretty well.The win was Houstons 10th straight in the division and left the Texans (8-6) tied with Tennessee for the AFC South lead. But Houston controls its playoff future with a 5-0 mark in the division.Osweiler threw interceptions on consecutive drives in the second quarter to help Jacksonville build a 13-0 lead. OBrien had insisted all season he hadnt thought about benching Osweiler, but hed seen enough after that and brought in Savage . The move was met with a huge ovation from the home crowd that had been booing Osweiler for most of the day.OBrien wouldnt say who would start next week despite Savages success on Sunday. Osweiler has struggled in his first season in Houston after signing a $72 million contract to join the Texans from Denver. He has 16 interceptions and 14 touchdown passes. Osweiler was 6 for 11 for 48 yards before he was pulled.He handled his benching gracefully, noting he was pulled for Peyton Manning midgame in Denvers regular-season finale last season.Unfortunately Ive been down this road before, he said. I understand what its like to get benched in the middle of a football game. And ultimately having a big picture view on the deal, its all about the next man up and being a good teammate.Houston trailed by nine entering the fourth quarter and Nick Novak made his fourth field goal before Lamar Miller bulled in for the go-ahead touchdown. The Jaguars were flagged for pass interference twice on that drive to set up the score.Some things to know about Houstons win over the Jaguars:BRADLLEY FIRED: The Jaguars (2-12) fired coach Gus Bradley not long after he addressed the media following Sundays loss, which extended their skid to nine games. Yeezy Levně. Bradley went 14-48 in four seasons in Jacksonville.It is unfortunately evident that we must make a change, Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement . I thought it would be best to do it immediately after todays result so Gus can step away, relax and regroup with his family during the Christmas and holiday season.DEANDRES DAY: Houston receiver DeAndre Hopkins had 87 yards receiving for his best game since he had a season-high 113 yards in Week 2. Hopkins was third in the NFL with 1,521 yards receiving last season, but his numbers have suffered this year as Osweiler has struggled and he has just 788. Savage said his familiarity with Hopkins helped him on Sunday.Its just being around him, obviously not getting the physical reps with him, but being around him for three years, you kind of know what hes about and you know that hes one of the best receivers in this league, Savage said. And it was good to show that today.ITS BEEN A LONG TIME: The Jaguars took a 20-8 lead in the third quarter when Marqise Lee returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. It was their first kick return touchdown since 2007 when Maurice Jones-Drew did it, a span of 149 games. Lee dodged a couple of defenders before simply outrunning the rest of the Texans.Its just patience, Lee said. You wait on the hole thats going to open up, for if you see one, you take it.CLOWNEY NOT SATISFIED: Houstons defense was led by Jadeveon Clowney, who had a sack, three tackles for losses and two quarterback hits. The top overall pick in the 2014 draft has a career-high five sacks this season, but feels like he should have more. It was his second straight big game after he had a strip-sack of Andrew Luck in a win over Indianapolis last week.Im just trying to fit in where I fit on the defense, Clowney said. Coaches are dialing it up. Just trying to go out there and make as many plays as possible. I dont know if it was one of my best, best games, but it was probably up there.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL. ' ' '

India have rested R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami for the first three ODIs of the upcoming series against New Zealand, which starts on October 16. Mike Webster Steelers Jersey . All three are key bowlers in the Test team, and the selectors have chosen to give them a break with India set to play 11 more Test matches in the 2016-17 home season. Suresh Raina, who last played an ODI in October 2015, was recalled to the squad, while Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul were unavailable due to injuries.This was the first India squad picked by the new selection panel chosen during the BCCIs annual general meeting on September 21.In the absence of the three frontline bowlers and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was ruled out of the third Test in Indore with to a back strain, the teams seam options comprised Umesh Yadav, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya, while Amit Mishra, Jayant Yadav and Axar Patel made up the spin options. Like Raina, Mishra too had not played an ODI since October last year. MSK Prasad, Indias chairman of selectors, said Rainas part-time spin was a factor in his recall.Indias previous ODI series was against Zimbabwe in June, for which the selectors had rested most of the senior players. Apart from captain MS Dhoni, seven players from that squad - Mandeep, Bumrah, Kedar Jadhav, Kulkarni, Manish Pandey, Axar and Jayant - were retained for the New Zealand matches.Mandeep, Jayant and Pandya were yet to make their ODI debuts. The 24-year-old Mandeep enjoyed a good stint with the India A side during its recent tour of Australia, scoring 198 runs in six matches in the Quadrangular A-team series, including two successive fifties, one of which was a match-winning innings of 95 in the final against Australia A.Jayant, the 26-year-old Haryana offspinner, played the two unofficial Tests on that tour, taking seven wickets at 22.57. Pandya, a regular member of Indias T20 side, having played all their matches at the World T20 earlier this year, has not featured in the 50-overs side yet.Raina was left out of Indias ODI squads for the tours of Australia (December-January) and Zimbabwe, and also missed the two T20Is against West Indies in the USA. In between, he had a disappointing run of form in the Asia Cup and the World T20. In the Asia Cup T20s, Raina scored 39 runs in three innings, and followed that with 41 runs in four innings at the World T20. Before his exclusion from the ODI team last December, Raina had managed only one century in the format in 26 matches. Dermontti Dawson Jersey .

Traditional contenders Brazil, Greece and Turkey drew the other three spots to complete the 24-team field for this summers tournament in Spain, basketball governing body FIBA announced Saturday at its meeting in Barcelona. WASHINGTON -- Dan Harens season-long struggles have hampered the Nationals. His latest outing was something different. Hes got the win to prove it. Haren won for the first time since May 9, backed by home runs from Bryce Harper, Ian Desmond and Denard Span that powered the Washington to a 4-1 win over the New York Mets on Saturday. Haren (5-11) pitched seven innings, allowing one run and three hits. "How bout Haren? How bout that," Nationals manager Davey Johnson said, excitedly. "He was great. He still had some left in the tank, too." In his longest start since May 30, Haren walked one and struck out six. "Its obviously been a long time to have that winning feeling after a game," smiling former All-Star said. "It definitely feels good." Bad innings, often caused by the 21 home runs hes allowed this season, have been Harens issue. His winless drought wasnt a case of bad luck but primarily poor pitching, though hes now allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. In between victories, the veteran right-hander made 11 starts, going 0-8 with a 6.18 ERA. Even worse, Washington lost all 11 games, including three since Haren returned from the disabled list on July 8. David Wright nearly homered off Haren in the first and sixth innings, but his high-arcing shots down the left-field line landed wide of the pole. "Gave up a couple of home runs -- foul," Haren cracked. "Thankfully, they were foul today." Haren also doubled to help the Nationals win for the third time in four games. Desmond and Span hit back-to-back homers against Dillon Gee (7-8) in the second and Harper followed with a two-run drive in the third. Harper had two hits in his return to the starting lineup after being limited to pinch-hitting duty in the second game of Fridays doubleheader. The All-Star outfielder aggravated his left knee while diving for a ball in the opener. After Harens leadoff double in the third, Harper hit his 15th home run of the year. Despite a tumultuous week, which included the Nationals firing their hitting coach, demoting former closer Drew Storen to the minors and an 11-0 loss to the Mets, Washington has regained its touch. "I think that could probbably be rock bottom there," Haren said of Fridays 11-run loss. James Conner Womens Jersey. "We dont have any more time for hitting bottom anymore. ... I was finally able to maintain momentum, something I havent done all year." Wright had two singles and an RBI for the Mets, who have lost two straight. Washington took the second game on Ryan Zimmermans game-ending homer. "The home runs are killing us, theres no doubt," Mets manager Terry Collins said. Span hit his first home run with the Nationals and first for the former Minnesota outfielder since Oct. 2, 2012, a span of 426 plate appearances. "My home run trot was definitely a little rusty," Span said. "I think I stutter stepped around third. I was just trying not to fall." The game was delayed by rain for 62 minutes with one out in the bottom of the eighth. Only scattered fans from the original crowd of 37,464 returned to watch the final five outs. Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his 26th save. With Eric Young Jr. on second following a single and stolen base in the sixth, Wrights two-out single ended Harens shutout hopes. Haren and the Nationals bullpen held New York to one hit over the final three innings. Reliever Tyler Clippard pitched a spotless eighth. Gee had not lost since June 17 and did allow an earned run in his preceding two starts. He dominated the Nationals in three previous starts this season, posting a 3-0 record with an 0.96 ERA.

DETROIT -- Kevin Gausman feels strong physically in the closing weeks of the season. Ender Inciarte Braves Jersey . Thats helped him make opposing batters look overmatched in recent starts.The Baltimore Orioles right-hander has won his last four starts and carries a streak of 19 consecutive scoreless innings into his outing at the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. Gausman was floundering with a 3-10 record until his recent turnaround.Ive just been a little bit frustrated, until about a month ago, with how my seasons been going, Gausman told the Baltimore Sun. I felt like I was pitching great and things just didnt go my way. Now its kind of on the other side, the other flip side of it. Like I said, Im just confident, feeling good. I think this is the first time Ive got into August and September and felt this good physically with this amount of innings under my belt.Gausman has walked five and struck out 27 during the winning streak. His scoreless stretch began with a six-inning stint against Washington. He then held down the New York Yankees in back-to-back outings, spanning 13 innings.Gausman is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA in four career starts against the Tigers. The three-game series could impact the pennant race, as both Baltimore and Detroit are in the wild-card hunt while still trying to catch the leaders of their divisions.The Orioles are two games back of American League East Division leader Boston and hold the second wild card spot, one game ahead of the Tigers. Detroit trails Cleveland in the AL Central by six games.Hes had a great look in his eye for about a month, not that he hasnt before, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said to the media recently of Gausman. Its just theres a real driven look and presence about him. Felt like hes really kind of hit his stride. Hes been solid for us for a while.The Orioles have won four of their last six games but dropped the finale of a three-game series to Tampa Bay 7-6 on Wednesday. They are hopeful that first baseman Chris Davis will return to the lineup on Friday. Davis sat out the last game with soreness in his left palm.Detroit returns home after losing two of three to the Chicago White Sox. The Tigers bullpen gave away a 4-3 lead in the eighth on Wednesday by surrendering four runs.Down the stretch, we need to win every game that we can, catcher James McCann said. So not getting the series win is frustrating, but at the end of the day, weve got to show up to the ballpark on Friday. Weve got a big series with Baltimore.Rookie Michael Fulmer, who has lost his last three starts, will oppose Gausman. Fulmer was encouraged by his most recent outing, when he gave up three runs in six innings to Kansas City in a 5-2 loss on Saturday.Im taking all positives out of this, he told the Detroit News. My fastball command was better. I made a few mechanical tweaks that helped a lot. The change-up was sharp and the slider was sharp. I got a lot of ground balls, kind of like the old me out there -- thats what I want.Fulmer got a no-decision on May 15 in his only career appearance against the Orioles, allowing four earned runs in 4 1/3 innings.

MADRID -- Lionel Messi put on a show in Barcelonas final Spanish league game of the year, scoring once and mesmerizing with his dribbling skills to set up two other goals in a 4-1 win against Espanyol in the city derby on Sunday.Luis Suarez struck the first two goals and Jordi Alba added another in a victory that left Barcelona three points behind leader Real Madrid ahead of the winter break. Madrid, which won FIFAs Club World Cup in Japan this weekend, has a game in hand.Messi dazzled the crowd at Camp Nou for the first time when he cleared four defenders outside the area -- including by rolling the ball between the legs of one of them -- before having his shot parried. Suarez pounced on the loose ball to score his second goal in the 67th minute.That was a PlayStation play by Messi, Suarez said. I wish he had ended it with the goal, it would have been one of the best in the last few years.A minute later, Messi used his pace and clever dribbles to get past four defenders again, and then passed for Alba to find the net from inside the area.After nearly scoring following a neat feint that fooled two defenders inside the area, Messi finished the night in style by finding the net from close range after a pass by Suarez in the 90th.For the second time of the night, the crowd got to its feet and chanted Messi, Messi.In the second half we saw the most spectacular version of our players up front, especially Messi, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. We shouldnt stop praising something just because it happens so many times that it looks routine. We shouldnt get used to it, its unique.Suarez, the leagues leading scorer with 12 goals along with Messi, had opened the scoring in the 18th, while David Lopez netted Espanyols lone goal in the 79th.Messi started the remarkable move that led to Suarezs second goal after a superb run by Andres Iniesta, who had to get past three defenders himself before being able to feed Messi outside the area. Iniesta had also unleashed a spectacular long-range pass to set up Suarezs first goal on the break. Rudy Gobert Jersey. When we are all playing well as a group, it makes it easier for the individual players to make things happen, Iniesta said. Leo is crucial for us.Neymar didnt find the net but was still impressive, creating scoring opportunities and entertaining the crowd with his play. The Brazil striker started the move that led to Barcelonas third goal.We played well, Espanyols Lopez said, but when you make a small mistake and give them as much as a meter, they will score against you.The result ended Espanyols nine-game unbeaten streak in the league, leaving it in ninth place after 16 rounds. It had defeated Barcelonas reserves 1-0 in October to win the Catalan Super Cup, a competition played by Catalonias top two clubs.Espanyols starting goalkeeper Diego Lopez had to be substituted in the 53rd minute after sustaining a severe cut to his right when he collided with Suarez while making a sliding save inside the area.---LEGANES 1, EIBAR 1Portuguese substitute Tiago Bebe Correia scored six minutes after coming on to give Eibar a 1-1 draw at 10-man Leganes.Bebe equalized in the 76th minute with a shot that deflected off a defender and fooled substitute goalkeeper Diego Barrios.Starting goalkeeper Iago Herrerin was sent off in the 26th for a bad foul outside the area while trying to stop a counterattack.Playing in the first division for the first time, Leganes has drawn three in a row and hasnt won in four rounds.---DEPORTIVO LA CORUNA 2, OSASUNA 0Deportivo La Coruna defeated last-place Osasuna to move four points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the break.First-half goals by Florin Andone and Ryan Babel secured victory for the hosts, which lie 15th in the 20-team standings.It was the sixth straight loss for promoted Osasuna, which stayed with only seven points from 16 games.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni ' ' '

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- After falling behind early, Syracuse was trying to rally in the third quarter against No. 13 Louisville, and the Carrier Dome crowd was alive as the Cardinals faced a third-and-18.Lamar Jackson then did what he does best.The Cardinals elusive sophomore quarterback ripped off a 33-yard run to again stun the Orange on a night of big plays. Louisville didnt extend its lead, but in the end it didnt matter.Jackson ran for four touchdowns and threw for another, and the Cardinals routed Syracuse 62-28 on Friday night in the ACC opener for both teams. Jackson tallied 610 total yards, the most by a player in a game in ACC history.?He had a great game, Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said. What I was most pleased with was how well he prepared for the game. He worked extremely hard all week. He did a great job executing. He threw the ball around and ran real well. He did a great job of everything we asked him to do.Jackson, the national offensive player of the week for his performance in the opener against Charlotte, a 70-14 victory, picked up right where he left off. He hit a wide-open James Quick for a 72-yard score on the games first play from scrimmage to put the Orange defense on its heels.The elusive Jackson followed with a dazzling 72-yard touchdown run, and he also hit Jaylen Smith for 61 yards and Jamari Staples for 55 in the opening spree.Im not sure anybody could catch him, Syracuse coach Dino Babers said. You get mad because they couldnt catch the guy. Hes the fastest guy on the football field. He got into space. I saw him outrun contain with three guys who were exactly where they were supposed to be. He should have got tackled for a 2-yard loss, and he runs all the way to the other sideline and steps out of bounds.Jackson, who was rarely pressured by a Syracuse defense that was content to lay back, also scored on runs of seven, 72 and 13 yards to give Louisville a 28-7 lead after one quarter. He had 108 yards rushing and 207 yards passing as the Cardinals (2-0) outgained the Orange 352-98 in the period, then tacked on a 9-yard scoring run in the second for a 35-7 lead. That was one for the highlight reels, with Jackson displaying hurdler-like ability with a leap over a Syracuse defender at the goal line.I had to take flight, score and get into the end zone, Jackson said. I think I did something like that in high school. I feel like I can score [on any play]. I feel I can get my team in the end zone on anyy play. Yeezy Sko Tilbud. Jackson finished with 199 yards rushing on 21 carries and was 20-for-39 passing for 411 yards with one interception as the Cardinals set a school record and came within 13 yards of the ACC record with 845 yards offensively. It was the most ever allowed by Syracuse, eclipsing the mark of 654 by West Virginia in 1993.Eric Dungey was 25-for-51 for 255 yards passing and scored on a 1-yard run late in the third quarter for the Orange.Syracuse (1-1) tried to claw its way back with a pair of scores late in the second, both by wideout Amba Etta-Tawo in the final three minutes of the period.In the opener against Charlotte, Jackson accounted for eight touchdowns and 405 yards in the first half, then sat the second. No breather on this hot night inside the Carrier Dome.The Cardinals moved up six spots in the AP poll after their lopsided victory over Charlotte. Jackson accounted for a stunning 405 yards and eight touchdowns, six passing in the first half of that game. Another jump is on the way next week.THE TAKEAWAYLOUISVILLE: The Cardinals proved the opening week was no fluke. Theyre for real, and as long as Jackson stays healthy, the Atlantic Division promises to be more interesting. Jacksons only concern on offense might be his receivers, who had six drops in the first half and more in the second.STAT LINE: Louisville averaged 10.4 yards per play.HE SAID IT: I did good, I guess, but I still have some improvement. I threw a lot of bad balls. Lot of bad reads, but I think I did alright. -- Lamar JacksonSYRACUSE: The defense wasnt tested in the opener against FCS Colgate. After facing Louisville, the Orange have a lot of work ahead on both sides of the ball, but they showed some grit by not caving under the early barrage. The up-tempo offense of Babers gained 426 yards and ran 93 plays, and the Orange have found a go-to guy in Etta-Tawo, who has 19 catches for 314 yards in two games. The Orange also could use some semblance of a run game after gaining just 104 yards on 39 carries, its second straight subpar performance.UP NEXTLOUISVILLE: The Cardinals get their first true test of the young season when they host No. 3 Florida State on Sept. 17.SYRACUSE: The Orange host South Florida on Sept. 17, their third straight home game.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.?

RIO DE JANEIRO -- For the family of Brazilian soccer player Neto, as one of only six survivors of a plane crash in Colombia is known, there is joy and pain. Cleveland Browns Jerseys .They feel its a miracle that their son, 31-year-old Helio Hermito Zampier, survived. But at the same time, they are struggling with loss because 71 passengers died, including 19 members of their sons beloved team. The plane crashed on Monday night, a few miles (kilometers) from an airport in Medellin, Colombia.On one hand, we are very happy because our family member, Neto, is alive, said Helam Marinho Zampier, Jr., Netos 34-year-old brother. But at the same time, we are grieving because other lives were lost.I cant say that God saved my son, said Netos father, Helam Marinho Zampier Sr., clearly searching for answers. If that was the case, God would have saved everybody. I can say that God helped my son.Sitting in the patio of their home on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro Thursday evening, several family members awaited more information from Netos wife, Simone, who had flown to Colombia. She and Neto live in Chapeco, the city in southern Brazil that is home to the team, with their 9-year-old twins.The last word was that he was in stable condition, having come through surgeries on a lung, a knee, a wrist and his head. He woke up briefly and grabbed the doctors hand, they said, before being sedated to continue recovering.My son was recovered in the debris of the plane, said the elder Zampier, who added that he hoped he could return home within a few weeks.The family recounted how they had been awoken at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday by Netos wife, who called with news of the crash. For hours, they were glued to the television. Grainy footage of the rescue showed repeatedly showed what looked like Neto on a stretcher, but they couldnt be sure.While they waited, they stewed on something Simone said: Neto had told her on the day of the flight that he had had a dream his airline crashed.By 10 a.m., they received news that he had in fact made it.When I found out he survived, I said: `Thank you, God. Now I can cry, said Valeria Zampier, Netos mother.Still, there is another side.My heart is broken for the other mothers (of the dead), she said.The family said they believed that the team would rebuild.Chapecoense reached Brazils first division in 2014 and was in ninth place ahead of this weekends last round of games. On its way to the continental final, the team known as Chape beat major clubs such as Argentinas San Lorenzo and Independiente.Several teams have offered to loan players, as the tragedy has brought an outpouring of support. A memorial service for the victims is being planned for Saturday in Chapeco.We saw the team go from very low to very high over the last years, said the elder Zampier. They wont go back down.The family also has no doubt that Neto, who was a team leader, would play soccer again. Since turning pro more than a decade ago, he had played for several teams across Brazil. He had also recovered from surgeries on one hip and his neck, injuries that many players dont overcome.For him, nothing is impossible, said Valeria.---Peter Prengaman on Twitter: www.twitter.com/peterprengaman David Njoku Jersey . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead. Baker Mayfield Womens Jersey . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. http://www.brownsrookiestore.com/Browns-Baker-Mayfield-Jersey/ . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005.With most international teams taking part in two friendlies over the coming week as preparations for Euro 2016 intensify, there are plenty of questions to be answered. Some teams will be planning for the tournament in France, which is less than 100 days away, while others, such as Scotland, are looking further ahead.We take a look at some of the key questions for the week ahead... Crunch time for Walcott?Given his recent form for Arsenal, it was not a certainty that Theo Walcott would be called up for Englands friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands. The 27-year-old has made just three starts in the last 13 games for the Gunners and appears to have fallen behind academy graduate Alex Iwobi in the pecking order.With Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck showing encouraging signs recently and Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Wayne Rooney looking lock-ins as long as they are fit, its Walcotts place that could be most under threat. Ray Wilkins thinks Theo Walcott needs to leave Arsenal if he is to fulfil his potential There are question marks, said Matt Le Tissier on Sky Sports News HQ. Roy has put him in the squad and he will need to use that well if he is going to cement his place in the squad over the summer. The one thing we have learnt about Roy Hodgson is that he is very loyal to his players, if players have done well he will stick by them for as long as he can. That seems to be the case with Theo, even though he hasnt been in the greatest of form.Hodgsons loyalty could be put to the test if Walcotts form does not improve.How will Wales cope without Bale?With seven goals in qualifying, Gareth Bale played a huge role in getting Wales to Euro 2016. He is also likely to be their main man in France as they look to emerge from a group containing England, Russia and Slovakia.However, Wales will be without him for their friendlies with Northern Ireland and Ukraine following talks between the national team management and Real Madrid. Gareth Bale will not be involved for Wales Aaron Ramsey will also be missing due to injury as will James Collins and Andy King, giving Chris Coleman a chance to rotate his squad and test out a few fringe players.You dont replace Aaron and Gareth, but thats not to say that we havent got strength in depth, said Coleman. This gives us a chance to look at one or two other guys and I see that as a positive, not a negative.Can Scotland find future talent?As the only home nation not to qualify for Euro 2016, Scotland are using the upcoming friendlies against Czech Republic and Denmark to look further ahead, with Gordon Strachan naming two squads of 19 players.Among them are eight uncapped players, including Birmingham defender Paul Caddis, Nottingham Forest midfielder Oliver Burke, Brightons Jamie Murphy and Leeds defender Liam Cooper. Birmingham Citys Paul Caddis could make his Scotland debut The squad selection has been met with a mixed reaction. Mark Warburton said he was surprised that none of his Rangers players were included while Celtic boss Ronny Deila is pleased with the longer-term thinking.If nobody gets a chance and cant make mistakes, how can you get them up? Theres no chance, he said. To think more long term is important.Judging by his squad selection, Strachan has one eye on the World Cup qualifier with Malta on September and beyond.Can anyone catch Martin ONeills eye?Like a few other nations, Republic of Ireland look as though they could hand out some first-time caps for their friendlies with Switzerland and Slovakia.But, unlike some of the other nations heading to Euro 2016, Ireland have just one more friendly scheduledd after this double header: a meeting with the Netherlands in late May. Denzel Ward Youth Jersey. .While they could still add another, these two matches provide a prime opportunity for fringe players to stake their claim. Martin ONeill wants to see some fringe players stake their claim There are one or two players there who have shown their worth in the qualification games and barring injury, theres a really great chance of them going, obviously, said manager Martin ONeill.But there are other places up for grabs. I want to see a couple of the lads, the Euros are just around the corner.Among those potentially looking to make an impact are Wolves defender Matt Doherty, Bournemouth midfielder Eunan OKane, Birminghams Stephen Gleeson and Brentford midfielder Alan Judge.Who will lead Spains line?They have one of the best goalkeepers in the world, one of the best defences in qualifying and a midfield stacked full of talent, but Spain have a slight problem when it comes to strikers.With Diego Costa not included in the squad for the friendlies against Italy and Romania due to fitness issues, the five forwards chosen by Vicente del Bosque are: Pedro, Alvaro Morata, Aritz Aduriz, Paco Alcacer and Nolito.Of those five, only the 35-year-old Aduriz has any kind of form in recent months. Aritz Aduriz (left) has been in fantastic form this season Morata has dropped to the bench at Juventus, Alcacer has struggled for goals lately at Valencia, Nolitos form has dipped since his dazzling start to the season for Celta Vigo and Pedro has struggled to impress at Chelsea.Aduriz, meanwhile, has 31 goals in all competitions this season and is fully deserving of his return to the squad, six years after his only other cap. Considering his age, he is probably not the long-term solution for Spain, but will he get his chance at France?In a recent poll by Spanish newspaper Marca, which had nearly 20,000 votes, 62 per cent said Aduriz should start for Spain at Euro 2016 while 14 per cent went for Morata and eight per cent for Alcacer. Only seven per cent voted for Costa.Will Lafferty look rusty?If Walcotts England place is in doubt due to his club form, what does that mean for Kyle Lafferty?Northern Irelands leading scorer in qualifying with seven goals, he has played just 45 minutes in three substitute appearances for Norwich this season. No surprise, then, that he is keen to get a move ahead of Euro 2016, with a loan deal to Sheffield Wednesday reportedly on the cards. Kyle Lafferty has hardly played for Norwich this season Given his track record, Lafferty is likely to start in France whatever his form at club level. However, Michael ONeill has added another striker to his squad for the games against Wales and Slovenia in the shape of Conor Washington.The QPR forward has never set foot in Northern Ireland but qualifies through the grandparent rule and could now make his debut in Cardiff, the city he used to call home when playing for Newport.Security situationAfter the terrorist attacks in Brussels on Tuesday, security is likely to be heightened at most international fixtures over the coming week.Belgiums game against Portugal next Tuesday was cancelled and then moved to Leiria while Frances friendly against the Netherlands on Friday is scheduled to go ahead as planned. Portugal to host Belgium friendly Portugal will host their friendly with Belgium after the match was cancelled We have a game to play and life continues, said France defender Laurent Koscielny. Its difficult when barbarous acts occur in France or Belgium but we must keep trying to give pleasure, smiles, to spectators and television viewers.UEFA have said they are not planning to play any matches at Euro 2016 behind closed doors and, asked whether it was wise to host the event, given the level of threat of another terrorist attack, French prime minister Manuel Valls said not to do so would be a victory for terrorists.

Injuries continue to mount for No. Shaquille ONeal Magic Jersey . 18 Auburn, particularly on offense.Coach Gus Malzahn announced that the Tigers will be without such weapons as running backs Kamryn Pettway and Stanton Truitt, and H-back Chandler Cox when they host Alabama A&M on Saturday (7:30 p.m. ET, SEC Network).Also sidelined are wide receiver/punt returner Marcus Davis and special teams performer Josh Shockley. Meanwhile, quarterback Sean White is listed as questionable for the game, which serves as the final tuneup for the Tigers (7-3) before the traditional Iron Bowl match against No. 1 Alabama on Nov. 26.Malzahn said early in the week he was not ready to make a call on the status of White, who said he had re-aggravated a shoulder injury in last weeks 13-7 loss to Georgia.Well play him when hes healthy, Malzahn said.White struggled against the Bulldogs. A normally accurate passer, he completed 6 of 20 attempts and 2 of 8 in the fourth quarter.I kind of hurt myself a little bit more during the game, White said the next day. I think I could have done a little better job letting the coaches know. I wanted to play for my team and I wanted to try to win.Malzahn said that John Franklin III and Jeremy Johnson are in line at quarterback if needed. Franklin started two weeks against Vanderbilt, but Malzahn turned the game back over to White after the Tigers went to the locker room trailing 13-10 at halftime. White rallied the Tigers to the 23-16 victory.In addition to the trio of running backs who have been ruled out, sophomore Kerryon Johnson is still recovering from an ankle injury that sidelined him for one game and has affected him since. He had 22 carries for 99 yards against Georgia.Were pretty beat up back there, coach Gus Malzahn said of the Tigers backfield.The concern is such that Auburn went into this week looking to give defensive back Johnathan Ford some reps on offense in case he was needed. He was moved from offense to defense in the fall camp of his freshman year in 2013.Freshman Kam Martin (144 yards on 23 carries) also could assume a more prominent role.Pettway exploded onto the scene in the second week of the season when he rushed for 152 yards in a victory over Arkansas State after sitting out the opener against Clemson.Pettway has been well into triple digits in rushing in all but one of his appearances -- he had only 61 on 17 runs against LSU -- but also missed the Louisiana-Monroe game with a bruised quad. He then pulled up lame late against Vanderbilt, he did not play at Georgia because of the leg injury. He has a team-best 1,108 yards in eight games.Truitt, who rushed for a season-high 78 yards against Arkansas, is out with an ankle injury and Cox also has a leg problem. Auburn is hopeful of getting them back for the Iron Bowl.Davis and Shockley, however, are out for the season with shoulder injuries.Davis has 17 receptions for 160 yards, but his absence will also be felt most in Auburns return game. He had 10 of Auburns 11 punt runbacks for 71 yards with a long of 25 yards.He was one of our leaders and, obviously, our punt returner, Malzahn said.If there is any silver lining for the Tigers in this cloud of injuries, it is that they should be should be able to rest up the players against Alabama A&M, an FCS team that beat Jackson State 27-20 in its last outing for only its third win in the last eight games.Quarterback DeAngelo Ballard passed for only 143 yards and had two passes picked off in that game, but also rushed for a game-high 155 yards. Running back Jordan Bentley ran for 106.

The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U.CONCORD, N.C. -- Charlotte Motor Speedway said 10 fans were injured Sunday at the Coca-Cola 600 and three of them were taken to the hospital after a nylon rope supporting a Fox Sports overhead television camera fell from the grandstands and landed on the track surface. CMS vice-president of communications Scott Cooper said after the race that all three fans were treated and released from the hospital. He said he couldnt discuss the nature of their injuries due to privacy laws. Cooper said seven other people were treated with minor cuts and scrapes at the track and released. Fox Sports released a statement Sunday night saying it hasnt determined the cause of the accident and it is suspending use of the camera system indefinitely. "Our immediate concern is with the injured fans," Fox said in the statement. Fox said the camera system consists of three ropes -- a drive rope that moves the camera back and forth, and two guide ropes on either side. Fox said it was the drive rope that failed near the first-turn connection and fell to the track. "The camera itself did not come down because guide ropes acted as designed," Fox said in the statement. "A full investigation is planned, and use of the camera is suspended indefinitely." Fox said it has used the camera system at the Daytona 500, at last weeks NASCAR Sprint All-Star race and other major sporting events. "We certainly regret that the system failure affected tonights event, we apologize to the racers whose cars were damaged, and our immediate concern is for the race fans," Fox said in the statement. "We also offer a sincere thank you to the staff at CMS for attending to the injuries and keeping us informed on this developing situation." The incident occurred on lap 121 of the 400-lap NASCAR Sprint Cup race. The race was delayed for 27 minutes while crews repaired damage to their cars. Kyle Busch, going for a sweep at Charlotte Motor Speedway after winning the Nationwide and Truck series races, was leading when he incurred damage to the right front wheel well of his No. 18 Toyota. Marcos Ambrose and Mark Martin also reported damage. No drivers were injured. The cars were initially brought along pit row as workers cleared the ropes from the track. NASCAR first threw a cautiion flag before two red flags came out. Jonathan Isaac Magic Jersey. It eventually allowed the cars to come into the pits, giving crews 15 minutes to work on their cars. During the break, Buschs crew frantically worked to repair a number of problems to the right front wheel well. After completing repairs to the car, the crew slapped high-fives after getting the car back on the track. Busch remained competitive and was running in the top five at the midpoint of the race. But his night ended in frustration when his engine blew up on lap 253. "I commend NASCAR for taking the initiative and letting us repair our damaged cars from the issue we had," Busch said. Busch said he never saw the nylon rope. "I just heard a big thunk on the right-front side tire and thought the right-front tire blew out," Busch said. "Thats how hard it felt... It did have an effect slowing my car down and I could feel it like, Whoa, thats weird. I dont know that anybody has ever seen that. Maybe now we can get rid of that thing." It was more bad luck for Busch, who has never won a Sprint Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway and suffered his share of bad luck. Kasey Kahne, who wound up finishing second behind Kevin Harvick, said he thought his eyes were playing tricks on him when he saw something strange on the track. "I have never seen anything like it," Kahne said. "I came off turn four and I saw it wrapped around Kyles car and it hit mine and I thought I had to be seeing things because theres no way there could be a cable on the race track. By the time we got to turn one I saw it again and saw Kyles fender and saw his car go down a little. Thats when I knew I wasnt seeing things." NASCAR said the camera system in question is from CamCat. The CamCat camera system is the product of an Austrian company that does work with many outfits around the world, including the Olympics, NBC and others. The company has been handling sporting events since 2000 and hasnt had any prior known incidents with its cameras. In May of 2000, more than 100 fans were injured outside of the CMS when an 80-foot section of the walkway fell an estimated 25 feet onto a highway below. Fans were crossing the bridge to a parking lot following the completion of the NASCAR All-Star race. ' ' '
