LINCOLN, Neb. -- Tommy Armstrong Jr. led a 91-yard tiebreaking touchdown drive after being helped off the field with an ankle injury the previous series, and Kieron Williams interception with 1:29 left secured No. 21 Nebraskas 24-17 victory over Minnesota on Saturday night.Armstrong, knocked unconscious in last weeks loss at Ohio State, was cleared to start against the Gophers and was playing one of his best games in weeks when he injured his left ankle on a quarterback sneak late in the third quarter.He came back to loud cheers on the Cornhuskers early in the fourth and scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 13-yard run with 7:17 left. He stumbled into the end zone, came up hobbling with a hamstring injury and was carried to the sideline by two offensive linemen.You all know Tommy. Youve seen him for years, Nebraska coach Mike Riley said. He is very, very competitive and he doesnt ever like to come out of the game. He always thinks hes going to make the next play.Williams intercepted Mitch Leidners tipped pass after the Gophers had driven to the Nebraska 17, and backup quarterback Ryker Fyfe took the final snaps as the Huskers (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) won for the first time in three games and a week after getting humiliated 62-3 at Ohio State.Minnesota (7-3, 4-3) had its four-game win streak ended.Armstrong was 19 for 27 for 217 yards with two touchdowns, and he ran nine times for 61 yards. Terrell Newby had 75 of his 85 yards in the second half.Leidner completed 18 of 27 passes for 180 yards.Nebraskas defense allowed a season-low 265 total yards, with Aaron Williams and Josh Banderas making 11 tackles apiece.The Huskers trailed at halftime for a fourth straight game. Newby tied it 17-all in the third quarter, taking a screen pass from Armstrong 31 yards to the end zone.You go the road and you have a chance, Gophers coach Tracy Claeys said. But we didnt play well enough in the second half to win the ball game; Nebraska played better than we did.THE TAKEAWAYMinnesota: The Gophers lost control of their destiny in the Big Ten West. They might regret some of their play-calling against the Huskers. Other than a few occasions Rodney Smith broke some good runs, it was mostly futile for them to try to run up the middle.Nebraska: If anyone doubted Armstrongs toughness, he proved his mettle. He also showed he is the most important player on this team. If he goes down, the Huskers are in deep trouble.UP NEXTMinnesota hosts Northwestern, which shut out the Gophers 27-0 last year.Nebraska hosts Maryland in the first meeting of the teams.---More AP college football at http://collegefootball.ap.org Swell Water Bottle Cheap .

CHICAGO -- Chris Archer prides himself on his durability. Thats why he didnt back out of his last start of the season, despite the prospect of becoming the majors first 20-game loser since 2003.The result was a confidence-boosting performance that got him to his goal of 200 innings.Archer overcame a shaky seventh inning to avoid the dubious 20-loss milestone and lead the Tampa Bay Rays past the Chicago White Sox, 5-3 on Thursday night.Archer (9-19) allowed three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings to help the Rays snap a six-game skid and leave Detroits Mike Maroth as the only pitcher to lose 20 games this century.More than anything else, Im trying to make every start and Im trying to pitch 200 innings. Thats my No. 1 priority, Archer said. The first half of the season was up and down, so to accomplish that feat was really nice for me, personally.Mikie Mahtook hit a solo homer in the fourth off Jose Quintana (13-12) and doubled and scored in a three-run seventh off Chicagos shaky bullpen.Quintana allowed two runs and five hits over six innings for the White Sox, whose five-game winning streak ended despite Carlos Sanchezs two-out, two-run homer in the seventh.Chicago clinched its fourth consecutive losing season under manager Robin Ventura, whose future with the team is uncertain. And Quintana has been mentioned as a candidate to be traded if the White Sox decide to rebuild.I dont have control about that, Quintana said. I want to be here for a long time.Archer got the first two outs of the seventh, but a walk, Sanchezs homer and Leury Garcias double ended his night. With rain starting to fall, Brad Boxberger got Adam Eaton to ground out with the tying run on.Erasmo Ramirez worked the eighth amid a steady rain before the umpires called for the tarp. After a 35-minute delay, Alex Colome got the final three outs for his 36th save.Eatons groundout to lead off the sixth put Archer over 200 innings for the second consecutive season. But its been nothing like 2015, when Archer was an All-Star and fifth in the Cy Young Award voting.While Archer has pitched better in the second half, hes gotten little support.dddddddddddd Tampa Bay scored two or fewer runs in 15 of his 19 losses, leaving him one loss shy of being the second pitcher in 36 years to lose 20.Honestly, I never let those types of things creep into my mind. Its pointless to think about negatives, Archer said. Im just glad I dont have to answer the question.Archers five strikeouts gave him 233, second in the AL behind Detroits Justin Verlander. He finished with eight consecutive quality starts and a 4.02 ERA.Alexei Ramirezs RBI single against his former team in the second ended Tampa Bays 41-inning streak of not holding a lead.Ramirez also singled and scored in the seventh as the Rays got to relievers Juan Minaya and Dan Jennings to build a 5-1 lead and hold on for their 66th win.I learned a lot about myself and I think thats the biggest thing, Archer said. You take this season and you grow from it. I think all of us starters are going to be poised for much more success next year.TRAINERS ROOMRays: In his second game back from a bruised hand, CF Kevin Kiermaier went 3 for 5 and made a running catch of Sanchezs drive with a runner on to end the game.White Sox: 2B Tyler Saladino (back) wont play again this season. Weve got to figure out a way to get him right before he heads home, Ventura said.20-LOSS CLUBMaroth went 9-21 for the 2003 Tigers, who finished 43-119. Before that, Oaklands Brian Kingman in 1980 was the last to lose 20.SUNDAY SALEVentura had hinted that ace Chris Sales season was over after Tuesdays victory. That changed when the left-hander asked to start Sundays season finale against Minnesota.I think thats a good testament to finishing out the year and doing it right, Ventura said.UP NEXTRays: Three games at NL West champion Texas to close the season. RHP Matt Andriese (8-7, 4.34 ERA) faces Rangers RHP Yu Darvish (6-5, 3.53) on Friday night.White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon (8-10, 4.08) starts Friday night against last-place Minnesota and RHP Tyler Duffey (9-11, 6.18).
