MADRID -- Valencia needed to win no matter what to try and change its fortune after one of its worst starts ever in the Spanish league, and it did it with the help of an own goal and a late penalty kick against Alaves on Thursday.Fans breathed a huge sigh of relief at the final whistle as Valencia salvaged the 2-1 victory that halted a four-game losing streak and left the team without a coach and in crisis.Daniel Parejo scored the winner by converting an 88th-minute penalty kick at Mestalla Stadium, moving Valencia out of last place in its first game following the firing of coach Pako Ayestaran.We needed this win, especially at home, Parejo said. We didnt play great football, but we did what we had to do.Valencia opened the scoring with an own goal by V?ctor Laguardia, who headed the ball into the top corner while trying to clear it from the area. Striker Gaizka Toquero equalized off a corner just before halftime to again dim the hopes of the more than 30,000 Valencia fans at Mestalla.Many were already jeering the team when Belgian midfielder Zakaria Bakkali was brought down just inside the area to prompt the penalty that was calmly converted by Parejo, sending Alaves goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco the wrong way.Valencia moved above Granada and Osasuna, which lost at Espanyol 2-1 earlier. In the other match of the day, promoted Leganes came from behind to defeat Deportivo 2-1 in La Coruna and jump to 10th place.Real Madrid, which was held by Villarreal to 1-1 at home on Wednesday, led the league by two points from Sevilla. Barcelona was third.It was the first loss for promoted Alaves, which dropped to 12th in the standings. The teams only victory so far came at Barcelona at the Camp Nou two weeks ago.Valencia is looking for its third coach since Nuno Espirito Santo left the team in November 2015. Gary Neville arrived but stayed in charge less than five months before being replaced by Ayestaran. The team is being led by interim coach Salvador Gonzalez Voro.No coach has stayed more than two years at the club since Unai Emery was in charge from 2008-12.Valencia, owned by Singapore investor Peter Lim since 2014, is the last team other than Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico to win the league title, in 2004.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni.

Clemson faces a very different kind of challenge less than a week after defeating Louisville in what might go down as the best game of the college football season.Tigers coach Dabo Swinney might have to tell his players to B.Y.O.E to Boston College on Friday night: Bring your own energy. Literally and figuratively, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, is a long way from Death Valley.Each game is very exciting, Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson said. You only get 12 opportunities to play. You work so hard over the offseason and throughout the week preparing for those 12 Saturdays. Each game is very special. Each game is a championship game for us.The Eagles (3-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) should have their largest crowd of the season by far after averaging 23,465 at Boston College Alumni Stadium, capacity 44,500, for their first two home games. And its a Red Bandanna game at BC. The Eagles uniforms will be trimmed in a red bandanna theme to honor Welles Crowther, a former BC lacrosse player who was killed in the south tower of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. That should help inject some juice into the stadium.Fortunately for BC, it does not have to go head-to-head with the Red Sox playoff game against the Indians in Cleveland on Friday afternoon. That should be close to wrapping up when the Tigers and Eagles kick off at around 7:30 ET. Still, Boston College has lost 10 straight conference games, so it is understandable if a visit from the No. 3 team in the nation produces more dread than excitement among Eagles fans.The Eagles three wins have come against Massachusetts, Buffalo and Wagner. The best team they have played so far was Virginia Tech, and they lost 49-0. Clemson (5-0, 2-0) is another level up.The issue youre going to have is youre just playing against some of the finest players in the country, BC coach Steve Addazio said. Thats the issue youre going to have. Therere no weaknesses.The Tigers won last seasons meeting 34-17 and Watson threw for 420 yards. As has been the case the last couple seasons at BC, the defense is solid but there is just not much offense. The Eagles rank first in the ACC in yards per play allowed (3.53) and second-to-last in yards per play gainned (5.dddddddddddd2).Some things to know as Clemson attempts to extend its winning streak against BC to six straight games:ROAD WARRIORS: Clemson has won seven straight road games, one shy of matching the school record set from 1978-79. This trip is extra tricky because the Tigers had less time to recover from that draining 42-36 victory against Louisville.Getting rest, catching up on film and taking care of your bodies, Watson said about the short work week.The last time Clemson played a regular-season Friday game was 1956 at Miami. The Tigers lost that one. The last time they won a regular-season Friday game was 1952 against Boston College.WHAT A RUSH: Clemson is third in the ACC with 18 sacks and Boston College is tied for fourth with 16.For the Eagles, defensive end Harold Landry leads with 5.5 sacks and is one of the most unheralded stars in the ACC.The Tigers have one of the deepest and most talented defensive lines in the country. Carlos Watkins and Albert Huggins are tied for the team lead with three sacks each.HOMEBOY: The best of Clemsons defensive linemen is from Massachusetts. Christian Wilkins grew up rooting for the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, Celtics and Boston College in Springfield.Wilkins said this week he was doing his best to trade tickets for future games with teammates to accommodate all the requests he has from family and friends. He figures he would need about 100 tickets to fill all requests.Wilkins could also be seeing more time at his more natural defensive tackle spot starting this week with defensive end Austin Bryant set to return from a broken foot. The 308-pound Wilkins was moved outside more often to compensate for the missing starter.UPSETS: The Eagles are looking for their first victory against a top-10 team since they beat Southern California 37-31 on Sept. 13, 2014, which was also a Red Bandanna game. Boston College has not defeated a top-five team since a 14-7 victory at No. 4 Notre Dame in 2002.---Follow Ralph D.
