Temperatures hovered around 28 degrees at kickoff time, but Kilgore warmed up quickly with first quarter touchdown runs by JuJu Brown and Kevrin Justice. Brown and Justice each finished with three scoring runs. Chapel Hill’s Andrew Black threw a pair of touchdown passes to Lex Heckel and Blake Mayfield. Three Kilgore players rushed for over 100 yards. Justice tallied 194 yards, 151 for quarterback Benny Colbert and 100 more for Brown. Black totaled 256 yards passing for Chapel Hill. Kilgore is now 13-0. Chapel Hill finishes the 2013 campaign at 9-5.
Turn out the lights, the fiesta is just getting started for No. 9 Baylor.
These Bears are headed to a BCS game as the Big 12 champion, making a reality out of the goal that seemed so far out of reach when Art Briles became their coach six years ago.
“That’s what hit me,” quarterback Bryce Petty said. “This is where it is. This is where that vision was.”
In what became a de facto Big 12 championship game after Oklahoma State’s loss, Petty threw for 287 yards with touchdown passes on the first drives after halftime and the Bears beat No. 23 Texas, 30-10, on Saturday in the final game at Floyd Casey Stadium after 64 seasons.
“It’s a defining moment for our program,” Briles said, adding he hopes they can repeat it multiple times.
“We always believed with him,” big offensive guard Cyril Richardson said. “We weren’t going to disappoint him.” (more…)
Monta Ellis hit a 21-foot jumper at the buzzer and the Dallas Mavericks snapped the Portland Trail Blazers’ four-game winning streak with a 108-106 victory on Saturday night.
Ellis finished with 22 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 28 for the Mavericks’ third straight win.
Damian Lillard had 32 points for the Blazers, including a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left that tied it at 106.
It was just the second loss at home this season for the red-hot Blazers (17-4), who lead the Western Conference and are off to their best start since the 1990-91 season.
Lillard’s 3-pointer closed Portland within 90-91 and he added another to tie it with 3:58 left. But Nowitzki made two jumpers to keep the Blazers from taking the lead. (more…)
The Dallas Stars gave team-logo baseball caps to their fans as a promotion Saturday. The fans gave the hats back in a delayed reaction to Tyler Seguin’s third second-period goal.
Seguin’s natural hat trick plus an assist, all in that second period, led Dallas to a 5-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers.
It wasn’t clear whether the third goal, on a drive from the top of the right circle had deflected off of linemate Jamie Benn’s stick.
Benn said, “I knew right away it wasn’t me that tipped it in. I pointed right at Seguin, and he pointed at me. I said, ‘No, it wasn’t me.’”
Seguin’s shot had deflected off Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn’s stick and past goalie Steve Mason. When the scoring finally was announced, a barrage of green caps littered the ice.
Seguin’s first goal came in on a 2-on-1 rush with Benn to tie the score at 1-all at :39 seconds of the second period.
“I just felt good for both Bennie and I. It’s no secret that we’ve been getting a little frustrated,” he said. (more…)

IRVING, Texas — Like all coaches, Jason Garrett prefers to have options.
When he had options to make changes in the starting lineup earlier in the season, he was not afraid to make changes, be it Brian Waters for Mackenzy Bernadeau at right guard, Orlando Scandrick for Morris Claiborne at cornerback or Ernie Sims for Bruce Carter at weakside linebacker.
Injuries have taken away some options, but the Cowboys have an option at strongside linebacker with Kyle Wilber playing well in his two starts and Justin Durant coming back from a hamstring injury. (more…)
