LONDON, Ont. - If the time to the MasterCard Memorial Cup felt long for the host London Knights, it felt even longer for goaltender Anthony Stolarz. The Knights had five weeks to kill between their second-round elimination in the Ontario Hockey League playoffs and Fridays Cup opener against the Val-dOr Foreurs. It was over seven weeks for Stolarz because of an eight-game suspension for slashing a Windsor Spitfire in a first-round game March 25. Jake Patterson finished out Londons playoff run, which lasted six more games. The OHL waived the final two games of Stolarzs suspension so he could play in the Memorial Cup. "To be honest, I just want to go out there and compete," said the 20-year-old from Jackson, N.J. "Obviously not playing, I think it was 56 days, was a little bit of a challenge, but I think over the last three and a half weeks of practice weve competed and battled and we couldnt be any more ready for this tournament." Stolarz backstopped the Knights to an OHL title in 2013 with a 13-4-1 post-season record. The Philadelphia Flyers prospect posted a goals-against average of 2.53 and a save percentage was .923. But the 19-year-old Patterson, from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., played more games for the Knights this season. Stolarz represented the U.S. at the world junior hockey championship in January and was then sidelined for 17 games with a severe leg laceration. Patterson went 22-9-0-3 in the regular season and 2-4 in the playoffs. Pattersons experience combined with Stolarzs lack of recent games made Londons goaltending situation hazy for the Memorial Cup, until Knights coach Dale Hunter confirmed he would go with Stolarz as his No. 1 again. "It was a tough decision, but Stolz is the guy," Hunter said. "Both of them have been very good in practice. "Stolz has been solid for us before he got hurt, and in the playoffs. Suspension and injury put him back, but three or four weeks have honed his game up really good." Stolarz and Patterson both have previous Memorial Cup experience. Stolarz started last years tournament in Saskatoon, but the six-foot-six goalie appeared to tire after the long playoff run. Patterson finished the tournament giving up one goal in a tiebreaker win over the host Blades and stopping 32 of 34 shots in a 2-1 semifinal loss to Portland. So if Stolarz cant recover his game quickly, Patterson is waiting in the wings. "You have to prepare for anything," Patterson said. "If Stoles were to get sick during the season or if I were to get sick and he had to start last minute, Im sure both of us would be ready. Its kind of the same situation right now." Hunter recruited former NHL goaltender Jeff Hackett to work with both goaltenders in their Memorial Cup preparation. "We did a lot of game-oriented drills where wed focus on plays that happen so often, rebounds, tips from the point," Stolarz said. "Working on things like that got us really prepared for the tournament." Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey . According to the sportsbook BoDog, the Stampeders are 8/5 favourites to take home the Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium in Regina on November 24.

You dont try to lose games. http://www.footballraidersmall.com/Youth...Elite-Jersey/.3 seconds remaining, and No. 7 North Carolina held off a resilient No. 25 Virginia team, 54-51, on Saturday.

The San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders are giving it a try, too.BATON ROUGE, La. -- Anthony Jennings to Travin Dural. Get used to it. The combination produced three first-half touchdowns -- including a 94-yarder on LSUs first offensive play -- and the 12th-ranked Tigers overwhelmed Sam Houston State 56-0 on Saturday night. "We have a lot of chemistry," Dural said. "He knows how I run my routes and I know how he throws the ball. So all that extra work weve put in is showing." Highly-hyped freshman running back Leonard Fournette also got into the act with his first long run, a 40-yarder that set up his first TD on a 4-yard run. But LSU coach Les Miles appeared miffed that Fournette chose to punctuate his maiden scoring run with a Heisman Trophy-like pose. So that celebration may be a thing of the past, even if Fournette is only starting to showcase his potential as a ball carrier. "It is a little premature to launch a Heisman candidacy," Miles said. "He needs to realize, too, that this is a team. "There were a lot of guys blocking for that run," Miles added. "We will make that point to him. Hes fine. I would much rather have an enthusiastic well-felt guy with energy that maybe is a little full of himself, but that is not all bad, either." Offensive lineman Evan Washington appreciated Miles sentiment, but wasnt that bothered by Fournettes enthusiasm, either. "Im not mad at him for doing it if he thinks he has the talent to do it. I think he has the talent to do it," Washington said. "He got caught up in his first touchdown and his emotions probably got the best of him." If anyone on LSUs offence was going to strike such a pose, it probably should have been Dural, who scored on all three of his receptions, which totalled 140 yards. His second and third touchdown receptions went for 28 and 18 yards, helping LSU (2-0) build a 35-0 halftime lead over the Bearkats (1-2) of the second-tier Football Championship Subdivision. "It was our boys against their men," Sam Houston State coach K.C. Keeler said, adding that he was pleased his team still played hard even when it would have been easy to check out mentally. "I mean, youre embarrassed. Its 30-plus to nothinng and youre getting handled on national television," Keeler said.dddddddddddd Dural, who had two TDs all of last season as a redshirt freshman, already has twice as many through the first two games of 2014. A week earlier, Dural highlighted a three-catch, 151-yard outing against Wisconsin with an 80-yard TD from Jennings. "Just putting the ball up there, knowing hes going to come down with it is a great confidence boost for me," Jennings said. Jennings attempted only 13 passes against Sam Houston, completing seven for 188 yards without an interception. Jennings confidence in Dural can be traced back to the 2013 regular season finale against Arkansas, when Jennings was forced into action by an injury to Zach Mettenberger. Jennings, then a freshman, led the Tigers to a late comeback victory by finding Dural for a 49-yard score. Their chemistry has only grown since, and is a reason Jennings has distinguished himself as the Tigers No. 1 quarterback over freshman Brandon Harris, who appears to have a stronger arm and be more of a threat running out of the read-option. Harris demonstrated his prowess as a runner when he temporarily replaced Jennings in the second quarter, spinning away from tacklers during a 46-yard touchdown run. Harris returned in the second half and registered his first completion -- a 22-yarder to John Diarse -- followed by his first touchdown pass on a fade to fellow freshman Malachi Dupre. LSU improved to 10-0 against FCS foes. But Miles had cautioned his players not to look past a Bearkats squad that came in averaging 613.5 yards and 43 points through its first two games. Apparently, the Tigers took Miles warning to heart. The Bearkats hadnt been held scoreless in a single quarter before being blanked by LSU, which registered seven sacks and produced three turnovers. LSU outgained Sam Houston 584 yards to 206. Freshman running back Darrel Williams added a short touchdown for LSU, as did running back Kenny Hilliard. Sam Houstons Jared Johnson completed only 8 of 25 passes for 142 yards and threw two interceptions, the second one picked off at the LSU 2 by Rickey Jefferson, younger brother for former Tigers QB Jordan Jefferson.
