ning a Big Ten title. Now, the lobbying can begin -- if Franklin wants to. The argument goes like this: Co-champs of the toughes Antworten

INDIANAPOLIS -- As Penn States band played and Lucas Oil Stadium rocked, thousands of fans clad in their traditional white shirts chanted We Are Penn State.It might have been more fitting if had it been We are Penn State -- and we are back.Five years after a child sex abuse scandal tainted the reputation of the school and its football program along with the legacy of late coach Joe Paterno, quarterback Trace McSorley put the Nittany Lions squarely back in the national spotlight Saturday night with an epic 38-31 come-from-behind victory over No. 6 Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. It was the largest comeback in the six-year history of the game.Before coach James Franklin left the field, he was already lobbying the playoff committee to put No. 8 Penn State in the final four.What I do know is that we just won the toughest conference in college football, he said. Weve won nine straight. They say youre allowed to overcome minor setbacks. Weve done that. Its up to you, committee.The Nittany Lions resume is impressive.Since rebounding from a 39-point thumping against Michigan on Sept. 24, Penn State (11-2, No. 7 CFP) has won every game, handed No. 2 Ohio State its only loss of the season and on Saturday rallied from a 21-point first-half deficit to end the Badgers six-game winning streak. Penn State also finished as co-champs of the Big Ten East, a division many considered the toughest in the nation, and now has its first conference crown in eight years.Many, including die-hard Penn State fans, wonder whether that will be enough to jump up three spots in the committees rankings. Some fans even held signs that read we smell roses.While McSorley, who was named the games MVP after a record-breaking performance, has even higher hopes, hes content to let his coach lobby for a playoff spot.Coach said what he needed to say, Im going to enjoy this moment with my teammates, McSorley said before leaving the stage on the field.It was certainly a moment worth savoring.McSorley finished 22 of 31 for 384 yards with four TD passes, breaking the title game records for yards and TD passes. He also broke the schools single-season records for yards passing and touchdown passes.And McSorley wasnt the only one putting on a show. Saeed Blacknall caught six passes, two for touchdowns, and finished with a championship-game record 155 yards. DaeSean Hamilton caught eight passes for 118 yards, most in the second half when the Nittany Lions repeatedly burned the nations No. 3 defense with deep throws.What was most impressive was how they won it.Penn State trailed 28-7 with 5:15 left in the first half. Thats when McSorley and the Nittany Lions offense finally got in sync by scoring touchdowns on each of their next four possessions -- the last an 18-yard TD pass to Saquon Barkley with 13:41 left in the game. The Nittany Lions never trailed again.They made some plays down the field and we didnt make enough to make McSorley feel uncomfortable, Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said.Wisconsin (10-3, No. 6 CFP) played without starting quarterback Alex Hornibrook but jumped to the big lead behind Corey Clement, who ran 21 times for 164 yards including a 67-yard TD run in the first quarter.But the Badgers usually stout defense allowed a season-high point total.Wisconsins final chance ended when Clement was stopped short of a first down on fourth-and-1 from the Penn State 24-yard line with 1:01 to go.THE TAKEAWAYPenn State: Consider the turnaround is complete. Five years after the Jerry Sandusky scandal tainted the program and the late Joe Paternos legacy, and the ensuing NCAA sanctions seemed to put the Nittany Lions on the fast track to nowhere, they are Big Ten champs and look like a real national championship contender.Wisconsin: After winning their first two title game appearances, the Badgers have now lost their two -- in shocking fashion. Coach Paul Chryst never could have expected this from a defense that hadnt allowed more than 30 points all season and had only allowed No. 2 Ohio State to gain more than 400 yards in a game this year.POLL IMPLICATIONSPenn State: Coach James Franklin insisted all week that his team was focused more on winning a Big Ten title. Now, the lobbying can begin -- if Franklin wants to. The argument goes like this: Co-champs of the toughest division in college football, championship game winners of the best conference in football and the only team to beat No. 2 Ohio State. Will it be enough?Wisconsin: In the first half, the Badgers looked like they would be making their case to the committee. Instead, the Badgers have no idea what will happen next.UP NEXTPenn State: Will eagerly wait to see who is next on the schedule.Wisconsin: Will wait to see who the Badgers will get in the postseason, one that could have been much more interesting had they protected their lead.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Raul Neto Jersey .

NEW YORK -- Kevin Gausman has been nearly flawless against the New York Yankees this season.On Sunday, the Baltimore Orioles entrust Gausman to deliver again as they attempt to secure an American League wild-card spot in the regular-season finale at Yankee Stadium.Baltimores (88-73) quest for the wild card lasts into the final day because it blew a 3-0 lead in Saturdays 7-3 loss. Manager Buck Showalter hoped to get Wade Miley into the seventh but the decision backfired when the Yankees tied it and scored four times in the eighth off Brad Brach.Now they turn to Gausman, who was officially announced as the starter hours before Saturdays game. The Orioles (88-73) are tied with the Toronto Blue Jays, 1 1/2 games ahead of the Detroit Tigers. Baltimore also clinches with a Detroit loss Sunday in Atlanta or Monday -- if necessary -- at home against Cleveland.The Orioles have good reason to place their trust in Gausman.Gausman is 2-1 with a 0.80 ERA in five starts this season against the Yankees, who have scored five runs and struck out 32 times in 33 2/3 innings. None of those runs have been the last two times he faced New York, including a 5-0 victory Aug. 28 when he allowed seven hits and recorded nine strikeouts.Gausmans last appearance in New York saw him snap a 25-game road winless streak. When the right-hander ended his 0-16 stretch on the road, the Orioles were 71-59 and three games out of first place.The Orioles unofficially lost any chances to get first place when the Boston Red Sox completed a four-game sweep at Camden Yards from Sept. 19-22. They have won six of eight games since, earning a chance at their third playoff spot in the last five seasons.If you had told me at the beginning of the season this is a situation that I was going to be in and had the chance to secure a spot for us, Id say Id take that chance and take that responsibility, Gausman said to Baltimore reporters Saturday afternoon. So its pretty exciting, its going to fun.For the Orioles, it would be just as fun if the offense produced more like Fridays series oppener than Saturdays game.dddddddddddd The Orioles scored eight times and hit three home runs Friday but didnt score after the third inning Saturday and had three hits in the final six innings.Tomorrow is what weve been playing the whole season for anyway, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said. It shouldnt be hard to get ready for a game tomorrow.Its a real tribute to our guys to have an opportunity like we have tomorrow, Showalter said. Thats how we look at it. Theyve done a lot of things to give us that opportunity and Im real proud and honored to be with them today andtomorrow.Besides trying to spoil things for the Orioles, the Yankees will be playing to win in retiring first baseman Mark Teixeiras final game of his 14-year career.Teixeira has started each of the last two games before getting taken out in the middle innings for a pinch runner.Just excited for him, Yankees third baseman Chase Headley said. Hes had an unbelievable career and its been a privilege to play with him for the past couple of years. Hes been a tremendous player for a really long time but hes a better person. It will be fun to celebrate his career with him tomorrow and I wish him well.Teixeira will be honored with a pregame ceremony and is expected to be in the lineup.Coincidentally, Teixeira plays his final game with Showalter, his first manager in the other dugout.He believed in me as a rookie, stuck with me as a rookie and I had four great years in Texas, Teixeira said. So itll be cool to see him across the field, understanding that he was there from the very beginning.Luis Cessa (4-3, 4.18 ERA) makes his ninth career start Sunday for the Yankees. Since entering the rotation Aug. 20, Cessa is 2/3 with a 3.72 ERA.In his eight starts, he allowed three earned runs or fewer five times and allowed six hits or less in each start. Cessa started against Baltimore in a 14-4 victory Aug. 26, allowing three runs and five hits in six innings.
