Monmouth quarterback Alex Tanney threw for a school-record 437 yards as the Fighting Scots clinched no worse than a tie for the Midwest Conference title in a 44-17 win over Illinois College.

Knox College (1-8, 1-7 Midwest Conference) at Lake Forest College (2-7, 2-6 Midwest Conference)

The Prairie Fire of Knox earned their first win of the season as they got past Lake Forest College 12-7. Knox rushed for 207 yards led by Bill Meyers 68 yards and held Lake Forest to only 88 yards on the ground.

Juice Williams and Illinois have logged their second victory of the season with a 38-13 win at home against Michigan. The Illini stopped the Wolverines on four plays from the one-yard line before running all over them yesterday and rolling up 377 yards.

It wasn't pretty, but No. 7 Iowa managed to remain unbeaten by rallying to a 42-24 victory over Indiana. Ricky Stanzi made up for a career-high five interceptions by throwing two long touchdown passes in the fourth quarter and Brandon Wegher had a career-high 118 rushing yards and three TDs for the 9-and-0 Hawkeyes.


The New York Yankees swatted three home runs to win a pivotal Game 3 by scoring five unanswered runs and rally for an 8-5 win over Philadelphia to take a 2-1 series lead in a game that featured the first reversal of an umpire's call on replay in World Series history. The two teams square off again Sunday night in Game 4 in Philadelphia.


Three-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson will be starting from the pole in Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway after rain washed out qualifying and the field was set by points. His Hendrick Motorsports teammates Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon will start second and third.

Johnson has a 118-point advantage over Martin with four races remaining in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. You can hear race coverage on FM 95 (94.9 FM) beginning at 11am.


The Chicago Bears take on the Cleveland Browns in Chicago at noon
The St. Louis Rams play the Lions in Detroit at noon
In what appears to be the game of the season, Brett Farve makes his return to Lambeau as his Minnesota Vikings take on the Green Bay Packers. It will be the first time Farve has played in Green Bay since leaving the Packers.
