Sunrise, FL. -- With a helping hand from goalie Jose Theodore, Ed Jovanovski got to enjoy a nice homecoming Saturday night.

Jovanovski scored a power-play goal in his first home game in a Florida uniform in more than a decade and the revamped Panthers went on to beat Tampa Bay 3-2 in a shootout.

"It feels good," Jovanovski said of his return to Florida. "The guys worked hard. It was nice to get that one early and feed off the crowd. It was a good one for us.".

Since it's Noah Webster's birthday, it's Dictionary Day Today. (According to wikipedia, a dictionary (also called a wordbook, lexicon or vocabulary) is a collection of words in one or more specific languages, often listed alphabetically, with usage information, definitions, etymologies, phonetics, pronunciations, and other information;[1] or a book of words in one language with their equivalents in another, also known as a lexicon.[1] According to Nielsen (2008) a dictionary may be regarded as a lexicographical product that is characterised by three significant features: (1) it has been prepared for one or more functions; (2) it contains data that have been selected for the purpose of fulfilling those functions; and (3) its lexicographic structures link and establish relationships between the data so that they can meet the needs of users and fulfill the functions of the dictionary.)

Corvallis, OR. -- Jordan Poyer returned an interception for touchdown and Sean Mannion passed for 306 yards but it wasn't enough to overcome BYU as the Beavers dropped a 38-28 decision to the Cougars Saturday at Reser Stadium.

Poyer picked off a Riley Nelson pass with 1:18 remaining in the first half and returned it 51 yards for his second career defensive score. It tied the game at 14 after the Cougars had gone up 14-0 to start the game.

Poyer ended the game with the interception - tying him for the Pac-12 Conference lead - and two pass breakups in addition to 171 yards on seven kick returns. His effort, however, wasn't enough to help the Beavers overcome 24 second-half points by BYU to just 14 for the Beavers.
