WEST POINT, N.Y. -- North Texas coach Seth Littrell seemed a little worn out at the end of the game, and it was understandable. The Mean Green had beaten Army for the first time in five tries and he had repeatedly jumped and spun around on the sidelines amidst a flurry of turnovers by the Black Knights.Facing the second-rated defense in the nation, Jeffrey Wilson rushed for 160 yards and three touchdowns and North Texas beat Army 35-18 on a wet, raw Saturday at Michie Stadium.We ended up getting seven turnovers, and thats key, Littrell said. Defensive guys did a great job of making those opportunities count. I was a bonehead in the first half, to be honest. We should have run the ball more.Fresh from a bye week, North Texas (4-3) rallied in the second half behind Wilson, who was coming off a career-high 188-yard performance two weeks ago against Marshall. Wilson scored on a 41-yard run and 1-yard plunge in the third quarter as the Mean Green stunned the Black Knights.Without a doubt, theres no other answer, simply our O-line, Wilson said. They came out today with fire in their eyes and I could see if from the jump. We knew we wasnt going to start off fast, but we know that if we keep on picking away and picking away and picking away that well eventually do what we came to do. And thats exactly what happened.Army (4-3) entered the game ranked second against the run, allowing just 99 yards per game.Wilson, held to seven yards rushing on two carries in the first half, staked the Mean Green to a 21-10 lead early in the third when he slithered through the left side of the defensive line and raced untouched for 41 yards and a touchdown. He had 153 yards on 13 carries in the second.The Black Knights seemed ready to counter right back, but quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled a snap on fourth-and-inches at midfield and the Mean Green took possession.Its hard to score when you dont have the ball, Army coach Jeff Monken said. To give the ball back to them is agonizing. Those plays kill drives, kill the momentum.Moments later, Army defensive back Elijah Riley was poised to make an interception but slipped down as he turned to catch the ball. That left Willie Robinson all alone for a 26-yard catch and Wilsons 1-yard run boosted the lead to 28-10 midway through the third.They did a good job defensively against our offense in the first half, Littrell said. What they do against the run game has been impressive, so I probably was trying to get the back end going a little bit. We had some stuff we missed early. The way our offensive line came off the ball and Jeffrey ran the ball, that was the difference.North Texas sealed the victory on a turnover. Army was driving at midfield early in the fourth, but after a long gain on the first reception of his career that had caught the North Texas defense off-guard, tight end Dalton Mendenhall had the ball stripped by Eric Jenkins and the Mean Green recovered at its own 12-yard line.Army finished with 302 yards rushing, 53 yards below its nation-leading average. Bradshaw led with 90 yards on 24 carries.Monken had a simple explanation for the loss.We got whipped in every phase, he said. I dont know if theres much more to say.THE TAKEAWAY:ARMY: If the Black Knights can control the turnovers, they still can contend to play in the postseason. Army cant afford to make those mistakes to have a chance to win, with the likes of Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Air Force and Navy still on the schedule.NORTH TEXAS: With a freshman quarterback at the helm and a solid running game, the Mean Green can be a contender in Conference USA. When Wilson is on, they win. In the teams first three victories, he averaged 142.7 rushing yards, just 44.3 in the losses.UP NEXT:Army: Travels to play Wake Forest of the Atlantic Coast Conference on Saturday.North Texas: Plays at Texas-San Antonio on Saturday.---AP College Football Website: www.collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Kekis on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Greek1947 Cheap Old Skool Australia Free Shipping .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team.

The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad.

SAN DIEGO -- No matter the names, the AL dominates the All-Star Game in the 21st Century and starts the World Series at home.Back in 2003, when a This Time It Counts sign was put up in right at Chicagos U.S. Cellular Field, the stars included Roger Clemens and Hank Blalock. This year, the key names were baseball Royalty: Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez.And because they came up big Tuesday night, Kansas City would open the World Series at home again if it wins a third straight AL pennant -- a big if.It just brings that sense of comfort to the team and gives you a jump-start for the whole Series, Hosmer said after homering, driving in two runs and earning the MVP Award in the American Leagues 4-2 win over the Nationals.The Game 1 Series host has won six of the last seven titles and 24 of the last 30.I would have loved to have that seventh game last year in San Francisco, manager Dusty Baker said in 2003, thinking back to when his Giants lost Game 7 at Anaheim the previous fall.Home teams have taken a 2-0 Series lead in six of the last 13 years. No visiting team has won the first two games since the 1999 New York Yankees, who swept Atlanta.Hopefully this is something we can all rally upon for the second half and find a way to use that home-field advantage, Hosmer saidHosmer and Perez homered in a six-pitch span, and the Kansas City duo drove in alll the ALs runs.dddddddddddd The defending World Series champion Royals are languishing at 45-43, seven games off the AL Central lead and in the middle of the wild-card race.Before the game, Royals manager Ned Yost told the AL team of the importance of earning home-field.We dont know who is going to be in the World Series. We dont know who is going to be representing the American League, but we know how much that home-field advantage helped us, Hosmer recalled his manager saying.The AL cut its deficit to 43-42 with two ties -- including the infamous 7-7, 11-inning game at Milwaukee in 2002 that sparked baseball officials to link Series home field to the All-Stars the following year.After two decades of NL domination starting in the early 1960s -- 20 wins in 21 games -- the AL has nearly caught up. The NLs scoring lead is just 360-359.Even the three NL players who became All-Star MVPs in the last 13 years now play for the AL -- Prince Fielder, Brian McCann and Melky Cabrera.Of course, home-field isnt everything. Speaking in 2005, then-Cardinals manager Tony La Russa thought back to Bostons Series sweep the previous year.I think that if we had started the series in St. Louis, he said, maybe we would have lost in five.
