P.J. Fleck may soon be an attractive hire as a power five conference coach, but for now hes content guiding Western Michigan to what could wind up as the best season in school history.The No. 24 Broncos play their first game as a ranked team in the Associated Press Top 25 poll when they visit Akron on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, CBS Sports Network) in a matchup of Mid-American Conference division leaders.Western Michigan (6-0, 2-0 MAC West), which entered the coaches poll for the first time last week, is off to its best start since the 1941 team went 8-0.Fleck, who of course wont speculate on his future, prevents the Broncos from getting caught up in any midseason accomplishment, but recognizes the significance of cracking the Top 25.Of course it means something. I think it matters a lot, Fleck said. Internally, we play it down a lot because where you are right now doesnt mean you have the right to be there tomorrow.What I do love it for is our community. This is a 109-year history of our program ... weve never been ranked.This city of Kalamazoo is a special place. We have an incredible institution with an amazing student body. And incredible faculty and professors that deserve to have a top 25 football program. And now they have one. They can say they have one.Fleck is the second-youngest coach in the FBS at 35 -- Memphiss Mike Norvell turned 35 on Tuesday. Fleck was 1-11 in his first season at Western Michigan before going 8-5 in each of the last two years while going to a pair of bowl games.Our failing equals growth, Fleck said. We have a lot of scars. But weve built leather skin.The Broncos are the only FBS team in the country without a turnover and protecting the ball starts with senior quarterback Zach Terrell, who completes 70.6 percent of his passes (fourth nationally) with 15 touchdowns. Terrell threw three touchdown passes and rushed for another in Western Michigans 45-30 victory over Northern Illinois last week despite severely biting his tongue while taking a hard hit early in the second quarter, causing him to miss two plays.Terrells favorite target is senior wide receiver Corey Davis (36 catches, 16.4 yard average, eight touchdowns), the all-time MAC leader in receiving yards with 4,374. He caught a pair of touchdown passes last week, giving him a school-record 41 for his career and breaking the previous standard of 39 set by Greg Jennings.The Broncos, who average a MAC-best 44.8 points, are also difficult to stop when they run. Junior running back Jarvion Franklin was named MAC West Division Offensive Player of the Week after totaling a career-high 249 yards from scrimmage -- 169 rushing -- with two touchdowns (one receiving) against Northern Illinois. He has 34 career rushing touchdowns and should blow by the school record of 39 set by Jerome Persell from 1976-78.Franklin (514 yards this season) rushed for 132 yards and a pair of scores in Western Michigans 49-10 victory over Central Michigan on Oct. 1 after No. 1 running back Jamauri Bogan (530) went down with an ankle injury after one carry. Bogan did not play against Northern Illinois and is questionable to play Saturday.The Broncos shouldnt have much trouble moving the ball against the Zips (4-2, 2-0 MAC East), who are near the bottom of the conference in all major defensive statistical categories.Akron, though, boasts the No. 3 scoring offense in the MAC (37.7 points), but must contend with the conferences No. 1 defense (20.5 points allowed).Junior quarterback TraVon Chapman filled in admirably for the injured Thomas Woodson (shoulder) in leading the Zips to consecutive victories over Kent State on the road 31-27 on Oct. 1 and Miami (Ohio) 35-13 last week. Chapman threw five touchdown passes against two interceptions while rushing for a score in those games.Woodson is questionable to play Saturday and it appears more than likely Chapman makes his third straight start.The Zips lost their 11th straight game to a ranked opponent 54-10 at No. 8 Wisconsin earlier this season and are 1-26 all-time in such contests -- 1-2 at home. The victory was a 34-20 verdict over No. 25 Marshall in 2002. Dallas Cowboys Bo Scarbrough Jersey . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. Dallas Cowboys Mike White Jersey . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. http://www.cheapcowboysjerseys.us/dallas-cowboys-dalton-schultz-jersey/ . 1 position. The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. Wholesale Dallas Cowboys Jerseys 2019 . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. Dallas Cowboys Chris Covington Jersey . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. PARIS -- Striker Mario Balotelli was rested to protect a sore hip and his replacement Alassane Plea scored the winner as Nice beat struggling Nancy 1-0 Sunday to stay top of the French league.Keeping Thursdays Europa League match at Russian side Krasnodar in mind, Nice coach Lucien Favre thought it best to leave out Balotelli and put other regulars on the bench.Marios hip was hurting so it was too risky ... Well see for Thursday, Favre said. We have a long trip to Krasnodar and the Europa League will take its toll for sure.Balotelli has made a strong start to his career in France, scoring four goals in two league games -- two on his debut against Marseille and two well-taken goals in a 4-0 midweek win against Monaco.Favre has spoken of how the Italian forward, who is reviving his career in France after a failed stint in England with Liverpool and a dismal loan spell at AC Milan, still needs to regain full fitness.This time, Balotelli was not needed as Plea -- who scored when replacing Balotelli against Monaco on Wednesday night -- poked the ball in after midfielder Valentin Eysseric had clipped a pass over the defense.Nancys fans were again left feeling disappointed after a fourth defeat in seven matches, with the promoted club in 19th place.Nice is one point clear of French Riviera rival Monaco after seven games, three in front of Toulouse and four ahead of defending champion Paris Saint-Germain.Its magnificent to have 17 points after seven games, Favre said. But its the matches coming up that count.PSG lost 2-0 at Toulouse on Friday.---MARSEILLE 2, NANTES 1It was third time lucky for captain Bafetimbi Gomis, who struck Marseilles winner from the penalty spot after having missed two clear chances.After defender Enock Kwateng tripped him, Gomis slammed his spot kick straight down the middle in the 53rd minute.Florian (Thauvin) told me he wanted to take it, the 31-year-old Gomis saiid.dddddddddddd But with all my experience, it was my responsibility.Marseilles past two defeats were by 3-2 scores, with Marseille leading 2-1 both times.This time Marseille rallied from 1-0 down to secure a much-needed victory.Nantes pressured heavily at the end, with midfielder Guillaume Gillet striking the crossbar.Earlier, Marseilles defense panicked on a third-minute corner as Polish striker Mariusz Stepinskis header was bundled into the net by forward partner Emiliano Sala.Clinton NJies first goal since joining on loan from English side Tottenham drew Marseille level in the 23rd, and it was a fine finish from 20 meters after Gomis instinctive flick sent him through.Moments later, Gomis curled wide from close range after shrugging off two defenders.I was too greedy on that chance, Gomis said. I wanted to put it far out of the goalies reach.Just after the restart, he was way wide with a spectacular diving header from a corner.Still, with five league goals in seven games since joining from Premier League side Swansea, Gomis is making his mark.---SAINT-ETIENNE 3, LILLE 1At 0-0 the match was going reasonably well for last-place Lille until defender Franck Beria wafted his hand in the air to block a pass over midfield.It was careless and costly, earning Beria a second yellow card. After his sending off in the 43rd minute, 10-man Lille conceded three second-half goals.No wonder under-pressure coach Frederic Antonetti shook his head in annoyance as Beria -- a veteran playing in his 10th season for Lille -- trudged off.Slovenia striker Robert Beric scored his third goal in four games, 18-year-old midfielder Arnaud Nordin got his first career goal and forward Nolan Roux added the third for seventh-place Lille.Veteran defender Renato Civelli got Lilles goal.
