Cornish, Stamps run wild over Roughriders in win


CALGARY, AB -- The Calagry Stameders' offensive line made racking up rushing yards a breeze for Jon Cornish.

Cornish had the best game of his career with 149 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Calgary Stampeders to a convincing 40-3 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders in CFL action on Saturday afternoon.

"Right now it feels really easy,'' said Cornish, who also had 32 receiving yards on one catch. "We came out and the running game started working for us. The O-line was blocking like crazy. It was just amazing seeing these holes. I followed them and they worked out.''

Cornish's big game came with Joffrey Reynolds sitting out his second straight game as a healthy scratch.

Beavers rumble, then stumble in the desert

The Portland Tribune

TEMPE, AZ. -- Arizona State made enough mistakes Saturday night at Sun Devil Stadium to leave the door open for an upset victory by Oregon State.

On a record-setting night by Sean Mannion, the Beavers responded with too many muck-ups of their own, the result a 35-20 win by the 25th-ranked Sun Devils.

Oregon State (0-4 overall, 0-2 in Pac-10 action) had five turnovers, 13 penalties for 139 yards and enough special-teams blunders for Arizona State (4-1, 2-0) to escape with victory.

“It’s tough,” said OSU cornerback Jordan Poyer, who had two interceptions but also a muffed punt that led to an Arizona State touchdown. “This was a game that came down to a few plays."

Mystery Series Week starts today.


Arlington, TX. -- All the pieces felt like they were falling into place for the Rays to claim a commanding two-game lead in their American League Division Series with the Rangers.

Instead, the fourth inning came and went, as did the Rays' chances in an 8-6 loss Saturday night at Rangers Ballpark.

Tampa Bay already had won the first game of the series -- and on Texas' home turf -- so the pressure rested squarely on the Rangers' shoulders to find a way to win. In addition, the Rays had built a 3-0 lead and they had ace James Shields on the mound with the wind at his back after notching three scoreless innings..
