SAN DIEGO — By early in the second quarter, Baylor was well on its way to blitzing UCLA and Nick Florence had supplanted Robert Griffin III as the Bears season passing leader. nike free 3.0 v4 . Florence will remember both accomplishments for a long time. The Bears overwhelmed the Bruins 49-26 in the Holiday Bowl on Thursday night as Florence threw for two scores and ran for another. Glasco Martin ran for three touchdowns. Florence completed 10 of 13 passes for 188 yards, giving him 4,309 for the season to break RG3s school record of 4,293 set in his Heisman Trophy-winning season of 2011. “For me, I just wanted a chance to play. I just happened to follow a Heisman Trophy winner,” Florence said. “Im not Robert. Im not 6-3. I dont run a 4.3. You saw that tonight. Man, if I could run a 4.3 it would be nice. So I just had to be me. I tried to manage this offence and play within myself. Hes a heck of player, hes done a heck of a job for this program, put us on the map. Im humbled and honoured to hold that record. He deserves it. I never thought that would have happened this year. I just wanted to win games.” Baylor (8-5) won its final four games and five of six. “That was a question we asked all our players, What was going to happen now that Roberts gone?” coach Art Briles said. “And our guys responded, fought together, believed in each other. They have always sustained and never lost focus.” Lache Seastrunk rushed 16 times for 138 yards and one score for Baylor, which outgained UCLA 494-362. The Bears came in leading the nation in total offence with 578.8 yards per game. Baylors defence came up big, too. The Bears sacked Brett Hundley six times, including two by Chris McAllister, and shut down UCLAs career rushing leader Johnathan Franklin. Franklin, who averaged 130.8 yards this season, gained 12 yards on his first carry of the game but was a non-factor after that, finishing with just 34 yards on 14 carries. Overall, the Bruins gained only 33 yards on 28 carries. They came in having averaged 202.9 yards rushing. “They played well upfront,” UCLA coach Jim Mora said. “When we are at our best is when we can run the football. We couldnt find any room to the football. They played physical.” Hundley was 26 of 50 for 329 yards and three touchdowns to set UCLAs season passing record with 3,740 yards. The old record was 3,470 by Cade McNown in 1998. UCLA (9-5) lost its final three. The Bruins were never in this one. Baylor raced to a 21-0 lead by early in the second quarter on Martins 4-yard run and Florences TD passes of 8 yards to Antwan Goodley and 55 yards to Tevin Reese. UCLA punted four times and lost the ball on downs before getting a break when Baylors Jordan Navjar fumbled after a reception when he was hit by Eric Kendricks, with Randal Goforth recovering at the Bears 21. Two plays later, Joseph Fauria caught a 22-yard pass from Hundley to pull the Bruins to 21-7. Baylor quickly added two more touchdowns to put it out of reach at 35-7. Martin burst up the middle for his second touchdown of the game, a 26-yarder, and, after UCLA punted yet again, Seastrunk broke free for a 43-yard touchdown run with 1:58 left before halftime. UCLA then converted two fourth downs, including a fake punt, to move to the Baylor 12 with 7 seconds left. On fourth-and-10, Mora opted to go for a field goal and Kaimi Fairbairn converted from 30 yards. Martin added a 1-yard TD run in the third quarter and Florence had a 1-yard scoring run in the fourth. Martin had 98 yards on 21 carries. Baylor rushed for 306 yards. “We knew coming in that we could run the ball well, and the O-line did a heck of a job and made my job easy,” Florence said. “It makes throwing a lot easier.” Hundley threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Shaq Evans early in the fourth quarter and a 34-yarder to Logan Sweet as the game ended. nike free in weiss .

PETERSBURG, Russia — And now for the gold-medal match. (Sports Network) – Is it more surprising that the Cleveland Indians are off to their best start in nine years or that Asdrubal Cabrera already has three home runs in nine games? Cabrera and the Indians aim for their eighth straight victory this evening in the opener of a three-game set with the hosting Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Cleveland has won seven in a row since yielding 23 runs in back-to-back losses to the White Sox to begin the season. The Tribe are off to their best start since going 11-1 at the onset of the 2002 season and are aiming to win eight straight for the first time since Aug. 17-27, 2008. Cabrera keyed Sundays 6-4 victory over the Mariners, posting three hits and a pair of RBI. His solo homer in the first inning was his team-leading third of the season and he is also tops with nine RBI to go along with a solid .316 batting average. The shortstop hit just three homers in 97 games last year and has never hit more than six in a single season. Jack Hannahan added a solo homer and Josh Tomlin gave up three runs over 6 2/3 innings to get the win. If we play baseball the way were capable of playing, then its going to be tough for anybody to beat us, Tomlin said. Mitch Talbot takes his turn on the rubber tonight for the Indians after making his season debut last Wednesday versus Boston. Clevelands fifth starter got a no-decision as he lasted just 4 1/3 innings thanks to 102 pitches, allowing two runs with seven strikeouts in his teams 8-4 win. The 27-year-old righty won his only career start against the Angels, holding them to a run over 6 1/3 innings on April 27 of last year. Talbot was to be opposed by the Angels Dan Haren, but his start was pushed back a day after he came on in relief in Saturdays 14-inning win over the Blue Jays. nike free run damen günstig. Instead, 21-year-old Tyler Chatwood will make his major league debut after being recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake. The right-hander went 13-9 with a 2.84 earned run average in 27 minor league games a season ago, including 4-6 with a 3.82 ERA in 12 starts with Double-A Arkansas. He is one of our young pitchers and is a guy who has really come on the scene quickly for us, Angels manager Mike Scioscia told the Angels website. He pitched very well for us this spring, and he is one of the young arms we are very excited about. Los Angeles is also expected to activate reliever Scott Downs from the disabled list today. He has been out since March 30 due to a left toe fracture and will add insurance in case Chatwood doesnt go deep. The rest of the Angels bullpen is also rested after Jered Weaver went 7 2/3 innings in Sundays 3-1 win over Toronto. Weaver struck out a career-high 15 and allowed one run, giving Los Angeles relief group a rest after it logged 9 1/3 innings in Saturdays extra-inning victory. (Toronto) is a tough lineup to face, Weaver said after improving to 7-1 lifetime against the Blue Jays. I had command of my fastball early and my slider was really sharp. It was overall a good game. Peter Bourjos hit a two-run triple in the fourth inning and Torii Hunter notched an RBI single in the first for the Angels, who have won four of five. Fernando Rodney recorded his second save of the season after working a 1-2-3 ninth inning. Cleveland won the 2010 season series by a slim 5-4 margin, with the clubs splitting six games at Angels Stadium. ‘ ‘ ‘
