by No. 23 Virginia Tech -- to earn another league title game berth.As much as you want to worry about what (the Hokies) have goi Antworten

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- No. 21 North Carolina doesnt have much room for error anymore.The Tar Heels (6-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) emerged from a week off spent getting ready for Georgia Tech and knowing they need a perfect November -- and a loss somewhere by No. 23 Virginia Tech -- to earn another league title game berth.As much as you want to worry about what (the Hokies) have going on and who theyre playing, you know that you cant let up on whoever youre playing against because one more loss for us and were out of the hunt, no matter what happens to them, North Carolina cornerback Des Lawrence said Monday. At the same time, as bad as we want them to take a loss, we have to be able to prepare and focus on what we have to do in order for us to stay in the hunt.During the first two months of the season, the Tar Heels claimed four ACC victories -- including a sweep of the leagues Florida-based schools, both of whom were ranked at the time -- to earn a share of first place in the Coastal Division.But they continue to be haunted by their lone conference defeat.That rainy 34-3 loss to the Hokies on Oct. 8 sure looks like it will cost North Carolina a trip to Orlando, Florida, for the league title game. Yes, Virginia Tech (6-2, 4-1) was beaten once in ACC play -- Syracuse sprung an upset a week after the Hokies stunned UNC -- but it took care of Miami and Pittsburgh on consecutive Thursday nights to remain in control of the division race.Cant control what happened in the past, coach Larry Fedora said. Its all about this week. ... It wont be about what happened. Its about, what are we going to do? We have to take care of our business.Even that may not be enough.The Hokies figure to be heavy favorites the rest of the way. Their three remaining ACC opponents -- Duke, Georgia Tech and Virginia -- have a combined league record of 3-10, and theyre 10+-point favorites this week against the Blue Devils.So all the Tar Heels can do is win the rest of their league games -- beginning with this weeks visit from Georgia Tech and continuing through games against neighborhood rivals Duke and N.C. State -- and root for the Hokies to lose, as they did last week against Pitt . Fedora cracked a wry smile Monday when the coach said he was pulling for them.All that matters is, were in a position, going into the month of November, of reaching our goals, Fedora said. Theres a lot of teams out there that dont have that opportunity. ... Theyre in a position right now where we can still reach all of our goals, and thats pretty good.---Follow Joedy McCreary at His work can be found at AP college football: Cheap Air Max 90 Online .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have placed centre Cody Hodgson on injured reserve and recalled two players from their AHL affiliate in Rochester.

Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football.

Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen.

Now, its time to see if they can stay there.No. 20 Nebraska opens Big Ten play at Northwestern on Saturday, looking to build on a win that vaulted them into the AP poll for the first time in nearly two years.A 35-32 victory over coach Mike Rileys old rival Oregon gave Nebraska (3-0) its first ranking since December 2014.Theres lots of stuff that we have to improve on to be a good team consistently, said Riley, the longtime Oregon State coach in his second year at Nebraska. So theres plenty of teachable moments from that game that we can use.Right now, it was a great win at that point of the year. It was obviously our biggest non-league game, and we managed to win the first two games to set that up into a big game for us. Winning it is a really good thing.Nebraska can boast five national championships, 46 conference titles, three Heisman Trophy winners and an 883-368-40 record that makes it the fourth-winningest program. But the Cornhuskers had to rally last year to finish 6-7, winning three of their last four, and wound up fourth in the Big Ten West with a 3-5 conference record.Northwestern (1-2, 0-0), a 10-game winner last season, beat Duke last week after opening with losses to Western Michigan and FCS power Illinois State. A victory this week would no doubt be a big boost for the Wildcats after a shaky start.I think were far from where we need to be, coach Pat Fitzgerald said. Its a byproduct of guys preparing the right way. Ill be a broken record. Ill say that until I retire. You have to prepare, and part of that is mental. A big part of that is mental. How youre talking to yourself. How youre preparing and visualizing. The amount of time you spend really, truly studying what were doing. What your opponents doing, his strengths, the areas they try to attack you.Here are some things to know as the Cornhuskers and Wildcats meet:ALWAYS CLOSEFour of the last five meetings have been decided by three points or fewer, with Noorthwestern winning 30-28 in Lincoln last year.ddddddddddddThe Huskers rallied from fourth-quarter deficits to win two of those games, including the 2013 game in Lincoln on a Hail Mary. Nebraska won 38-17 in Evanston two years ago.ON TRACKLast in scoring and total offense in the Big Ten and with a league-worst 11 sacks allowed, it sure has not been a good start for Northwesterns offense.There have been issues on the line, which Fitzgerald called a work in progress. And that certainly has not made things easy on quarterback Clayton Thorson and running back Justin Jackson. Thorson has just a 49-percent completion rate and Jackson is averaging about 87 yards, though he is going against a team that gave up 336 yards on the ground last week.HUSKERS NEW WARDROBENebraska will wear an alternate Adidas white uniform. The Husker Chrome outfit features red numbering with metallic chrome outlining on the jersey accented with metallic chrome stripes on both the jersey and pants. The helmet has a metallic red N logo on both sides and is accented with numbers in metallic red and metallic chrome outlining on the back of the helmet.TURNOVER TURNABOUTNebraska was last in the Big Ten last year with 12 more turnovers than takeaways, and the Huskers have had a positive turnover margin just once in the past 12 seasons. So far, the Huskers are plus-six in turnover margin, ranking fifth in the country. Northwestern is plus-one in turnover margin.CATCHING ONNorthwesterns Austin Carr is off to a good start, with a Big Ten-leading 283 yards receiving. The senior is second with six receptions per game and third with 94.3 receiving yards per game. He is also coming off a huge performance against Duke, with six catches for a personal-best 135 yards -- including a career-long 58-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.---Online:AP college football website: Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
