    HOUSTON — It was the definition of a team win for Gang Green. The offense was balanced, and the defense played lights out and the end result was a 21-14 win over the lousy Houston Texans. Zach Wilson had a pedestrian day in his return to action as he went 14-for-24 for 145 yards with a rushing touchdown and an interception. Wilson wasn’t happy with his performance but elated for the victory. “Feels really good,” Wilson said. “I wasn’t happy with how I performed. Just the ups and downs of it all. I gotta just keep going, it’s all part of the process. it feels really good to go home having a win. That’s the goal, to win the game.” It was Wilson’s first game in a month, but the former BYU quarterback refused to blame his lackluster play on rust. “I don’t blame anything on that,” Wilson said. “There’s no excuses. You got to really come out and play well.” Late in the fourth quarter, Wilson appeared to tweak his knee on a scramble...
    NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Tanner Groves buried a 3-pointer for the lead early in the second half and Oklahoma found the range and roared past Houston Baptist 57-40 on Wednesday night. Elijah Harkless scored 13 points with nine rebounds and Jordan Goldwire scored 11 for Oklahoma. The Sooners (5-1) trailed 27-22 at halftime after shooting 31% in the first 20 minutes, making just 9 of 29 shots, including 1-for-12 from 3-point distance. They shot 44% after halftime. Houston Baptist (1-4), meanwhile, ended the first half shooting nearly 60%, sinking 11 of 19 shots but was held to just three field goals in 23 tries through the first 17 minutes of the second half. Consecutive 3-pointers by Gibson and Tanner Groves ignited an 18-0 run that had the Sooners going from five points down to leading by 13 in just under seven minutes. Zion Tordoff led Houston Baptist scoring nine of his 11 points in the first half. ___ More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/hub/college-basketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    The most expensive item over the first half-decade of President Joe Biden’s climate and social spending legislation is a tax cut for the wealthy. The Democratic Build Back Better Act, which passed the House on Friday morning, raises the current $10,000 cap on federal tax deductions for state and local taxes to $80,000, a move that leads to a significant tax cut for high earners in states with high taxes. The provision dwarfs many of the other priorities in the legislation and was included under pressure from a vocal contingent of Democrats from high-tax blue states. The nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget said that increasing the SALT cap to $80,000 through 2025 would end up costing the federal government $275 billion in revenue — an amount that is $5 billion more than the next costliest provision in the Build Back Better Act. COST OF DEMOCRATIC SPENDING BILL WOULD DOUBLE IF TEMPORARY PROVISIONS EXTENDED, BUDGET WATCHDOG SAYS The Joint Committee on Taxation estimated Friday that the SALT cap change in the bill that...
    MANCHESTER UNITED were outclassed once again by a local rival in their own back yard. Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earned a temporary reprieve with last week's 3-0 win over Tottenham, after pressure had reached a boiling point with the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool the week before. 4Manchester United suffered another humbling defeatCredit: Reuters But the Norwegian will be feeling it all over again, after his side failed to land a punch on Manchester City, despite super-fan Tyson Fury being in attendance.

    BLUNDER REF Alan Young is braced for the chop after his timekeeping cock-up at Leyton Orient. Young is due to be working as fourth official at Tuesday’s League One clash between Wycombe and Ipswich Town. 1Ref Alan Young blew early for half-time at Brisbane RoadCredit: Rex But his FA bosses are planning their response to his calamitous error on Saturday. The ref failed to add any first-half stoppage time as the Os took on Hartlepool. He should have allowed four extra minutes but blew for half-time bang on the 45-minute mark. The teams went in for the customary 15-minute break before coming back out expecting to get on with the second-half. But Young decided to play out the remaining 4mins and 20secs from the first-half - only then to swap ends and play the next 45 amid chaotic scenes. At the time Leyton Orient seemed less than impressed with the foul-up.

    MANCHESTER UNITED earned three much needed points with a hard-fought win against Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knew that anything but a win tonight would add to the mountain of pressure already piling on top of him after last Sunday's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool. 3Man Utd won their first league game in their last four under Solskjaer, easing the pressure on the NorwegianCredit: AP And his side reacted in exactly the way he would have liked with a sturdy defensive performance and showed a real cutting edge in attack. An incredible volley from Cristiano Ronaldo gave Man Utd the lead in the first half and the Portuguese then provided the assist for Edinson Cavani's goal in the second period. Marcus Rashford sealed the victory late on and suddenly the black cloud hovering over Old Trafford seems a little bit less dark, with Utd climbing back up to fifth.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Maguire said: "We apologise to the fans, it was nowhere near good enough for this club. "They stuck with us right to the end and we appreciate that but as a club we have to do better. "I am so disappointed, we gave them so many chances.

    SUPER-SUB Beth Mead became the first woman to net a hat-trick for England at Wembley. The Arsenal forward grabbed her first goal just seconds after coming off the bench to lead the Lionesses to a fourth successive World Cup qualifying win — putting Northern Ireland to the sword. 1Beth Mead bagged a hat-trick off the bench as England beat Northern Ireland 4-0 at WembleyCredit: Getty She completed a treble in a quick-fire 14 minutes to power England to the top of their group.

    ARSENAL ran riot on Aston Villa with a dominant performance and a 3-1 win at the Emirates. Thomas Partey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in a rampant first-half showing from Mikel Arteta's men. 6Arsenal cruised to victory against Aston Villa at the Emirates on Friday nightCredit: PA And star of the show Emile Smith Rowe added a third after the break to seal three points.

    TALK about one El of a turnaround. Mohamed Elyounoussi was so far out in the cold at Southampton he was in danger of frostbite. 2Mohamed Elyounoussi of Southampton applauds fansCredit: Getty Yet after two seasons on loan at Celtic, the Norwegian has now surprisingly returned to the fold under Ralph Hasenhuttl and become one of his key players. Elyounoussi helped Saints beat Leeds 1-0 last weekend to land their first league victory of the season. Amazingly, it was the playmaker’s maiden win at St Mary’s, coming 1,205 days after he first signed for the club. When informed of the staggering statistic by SunSport, Elyounoussi replied: “Wow, I didn’t know that.

    MANCHESTER UNITED have been dealt a potential injury blow after Raphael Varane limped off against Spain. The France defender, 28, lined up for his country in tonight's Nations League final. 2Man Utd have suffered a potential injury blow with Raphael Varane going off against SpainCredit: AP 2The defender went down after appearing to stretch for the ballCredit: Getty But as the first-half drew to a close, Varane went down without anyone around him.

    The 49ers didn’t start strong Sunday, but they recovered to beat the Eagles 17-11 and complete a two-game sweep of their season-opening road trip to the Eastern Time Zone. With the Eagles leading 3-0 midway through the second quarter, the teams traded drives of 90-plus yards. The difference was that the 49ers finished theirs with a touchdown after they stopped Philadelphia inside the five-yard line. San Francisco went into the break leading 7-3 after looking listless for much of the first half, then controlled the clock throughout the second half to secure the victory. Here’s what the 49ers said in their postgame press conference: QUARTERBACK JIMMY GAROPPOLO On pulling out the win: “Two 90-plus yard drives, their defense makes you earn it. Their front is as good as it gets. They get after you and make you earn every yard. It was a good challenge for us.

    JUVENTUS remain stuck in the Serie A relegation zone after Ante Rebic nodded in an equaliser for the visiting AC Milan. The striker guided a header away from the sprawling Wojciech Szczesny to cancel out Alvaro Morata’s first-half goal. 1Ante Rebic rose highest to nod home the equaliser for the visitorsCredit: Reuters The point sends Milan second in Serie A, behind league leaders and local rivals Inter only on goal difference. But Juve are languishing down in 18th position without a win in their opening four matches. The hosts took the lead after just four minutes via former Chelsea man Alvaro Morata. Countering from a corner, Paulo Dybala flicked the ball to Morata to run from midfield and dink a finish over Mike Maignan in the Milan net. The strike marked the Spaniard’s third in just over a week after netting against Serie A rivals Napoli and Malmo in the Champions League. Juve could have had more in the first half were it not for Maignan, who stopped a second Morata effort before tipping a Dybala strike wide. Most read...
    Nancy S. Jecker, University of Washington Should countries that can afford COVID-19 booster vaccines offer them to residents if scientists recommend them? The director-general of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has made his position clear, calling for countries to impose a moratorium on boosters until 10% of people in every country are vaccinated. His plea comes amid mounting concerns about the slow progress getting COVID-19 vaccines to people in low-income countries. Like the WHO, some ethicists, including me, have argued that the world must stand together in solidarity to end the pandemic. Yet as of Sept. 14, of the 5.76 billion doses of vaccine that have been administered globally, only 1.9% went to people in low-income countries. Meanwhile, many wealthy countries have begun offering COVID-19 boosters to fully vaccinated, healthy adults. Early evidence on the benefit of COVID-19 boosters to protect against severe disease and death cuts both ways. Some experts tout their benefits, while others argue against them for now. As a philosopher who...
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ new-look offense overcame a slow start, Ulysees Gilbert returned a blocked punt 9 yards for a touchdown and Pittsburgh rallied to a season-opening 23-16 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Down 10-0, the Steelers scored on each of their first four possessions of the second half, with Roethlisberger putting Pittsburgh ahead for good by lobbing a 5-yard touchdown pass to Dionte Johnson in the left corner of the end zone.

The Steelers then extended their lead to 20-10 some 90 seconds later with Miles Killebrew bursting up the middle to block Matt Haack’s punt, with Gilbert scooping up the loose ball and running it in untouched.

    08/29/2021 On at 20:48 CEST The Manchester United was clearly outmatched at Molineux, but they didn’t care. A right hand from Mason Greenwood was enough to the red devils to get a long-suffering triumph. Wolverhampton came to besiege the ‘red devils’, with Adama Traoré and Trincao spearheads, but his worrying lack of goal gave United the life it needed: With nine minutes to go, Greenwood pulled off talent to decide the game.

    Australians have continued to count their losses as many have reportedly been the victims of various investment scams. According to a press release issued by the Australian Competition and Consumers Commission (ACCC), investment scams reported to Scamwatch have cost Australians more than $ 70 million in the first half of this year. This figure exceeded the total losses reported for 2020, according to the ACCC. The rise in popularity of cryptocurrencies remains the most common avenue through which Australians are scammed. Of these, scams involving Bitcoin are the most dominant. “Investment scams are more prevalent than ever, and scammers are capitalizing on interest in cryptocurrencies in particular,” said ACCC Vice President Delia Rickard. “More than half of the $ 70 million in losses were from cryptocurrencies, especially through Bitcoin, and cryptocurrency scams were also the most commonly reported type of investment scam, with 2,240 reports.” Proposing investment opportunities with good earnings potential has always been the attractive factor used to attract investors. Capital lost to Bitcoin scams topped $ 25.7 million this...

    The Ecuadorian Barcelona tied this Thursday by 1-1 and eliminated the Brazilian Fluminense, with whom he was a week ago in a draw by 2-2 in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Libertadores Cup, and it will be seen in the semifinals with Flamengo. The Barcelona goal was scored by Uruguayan striker Gonzalo Mastriani, in the 73rd minute, and the draw by Fred, in the 95th minute. The two goals in the first leg gave Barcelona the fifth classification to a semifinals of the continental tournament, after previously achieving it in 1971, 1972, 1986, 1987 and 2017, in addition to the two finals that he lost in 1990 against Paraguayan Olimpia, and in 1998 against Vasco Da Gama. Fluminense privileged control of the ball, for which they advanced their defensive line to the middle of the field and where with the midfielders with a numerical superiority they complicated the offensive maneuvers that Barcelona tried to weave. Luiz Henrique found the space and headed for a violent half-turn shot, which barely surpassed the crossbar. The visitor’s proposal blocked the...
