FSU, Kansas, Duke lead surprising college football starts

Forty names, games, teams and minutiae making news in college football, where stubborn old Iowa can rank last in the nation in yards per play (2.8) and still not feel the need to make a quarterback change:

THIRD QUARTER

SIGNS OF LIFE

There are some early stirrings of success in unusual locales, and some comebacks from forgotten people and places. A Dash breakdown of what’s going well that we might not have seen coming:

The Atlantic Coast Conference (21) has eight undefeated teams and a 19–4 nonconference record. Last year, just five ACC teams made it to 2–0. For a league known for many years as Clemson or Bust, it’s good to have some more schools making headlines. (Three other ACC teams are ranked, after the No. 5 Tigers: No. 13 Miami, No. 16 North Carolina State and No. 19 Wake Forest.)

On Saturday the ACC took the show on the road and held up well, going 5–1 in nonleague play. That included upset victories by Duke and Louisville, plus the return of Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman earlier than some had expected to lead the Demon Deacons past Vanderbilt. North Carolina won consecutive road games and is averaging 51.3 points despite leading receiver Josh Downs missing the past two contests (freshman quarterback Drake Maye is legit).

The most surprising ACC teams to date:

Florida State (22). The Seminoles very nearly blew a sure victory against LSU in the final minute Labor Day night, but nevertheless held on for a rare ACC victory over the SEC. (Last year the record was 8–1 in favor of the SEC.) FSU is off to its first 2–0 start since 2016, which tells you how bad it’s been in Tally in recent

UNT grad Sebastian Munoz blazes to AT&T Byron Nelson lead with 12-below opening spherical

MCKINNEY – Sebastian Munoz entered this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson as the co-holder of the “best round of the PGA Tour this season” title, thanks to his 10-underneath spherical of 60 at the RSM Vintage in November.

Right after Thursday’s history-breaking opening round at TPC Craig Ranch, he no lengthier has to share that title.

Munoz, a University of North Texas graduate and former Convention United states of america Championship match winner, shot a 12-below round of 60 early on Thursday. The spherical gained him the TPC Craig Ranch study course record, tied him for the Nelson match document and set him by itself at the top for the finest round of the 2021-22 PGA Tour year.

“It’s a great sensation whenever every little thing is clicking, hitting the tee shots, ball is coming out in the window that you imagined, the putts,” Munoz stated. “When all the things is heading, it’s just continue to be out of the way and just sort of let it occur.”

The Colombian-born Munoz received off to a good start on Thursday early morning, but the spherical wasn’t anything resembling a record-breaking one particular in the early levels. Soon after a bogey at No. 8 thanks to an errant tee shot that compelled him to acquire an unplayable, Munoz was just -2 by way of eight holes. But starting up at the par-5 9th with an eagle, Munoz completed his spherical with a extend of 10 holes where by he played -10, which includes a study course-file 28 on the back 9.

Munoz truly had a prospect to sign up for the elusive 59 club when he stepped to the tee box at No. 18. With an eagle, the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship would have become just the 12th player in PGA Tour background

Draymond Green and Warriors’ veteran ‘dogs’ lead NBA’s best defense, creating blueprint for title contention

SAN FRANCISCO — Steph Curry’s logo 3-pointers. Klay Thompson’s unfathomable hot streaks. Draymond Green’s borderline telepathic passing and anticipation. For the better half of the past decade, the Golden State Warriors have been the embodiment of modern basketball offense. Fast. Precise. Accurate. Deadly.

The graceful beauty of that offense, particularly after Kevin Durant joined the fray, made it easy to overlook the rugged, disciplined effort taking place on the other end of the floor. During the Warriors’ three title runs in 2015, 2017 and 2018, their postseason rankings in defensive efficiency were first, second and first, respectively. The two times they didn’t win the championship during their stretch of five straight NBA Finals appearances, they finished the playoffs seventh and 11th defensively.

With that corporate knowledge safely secured in their collective hippocampus, it’s easy to see why defense has remained the top priority for the Warriors, who own the NBA’s stingiest defensive rating during their 7-1 start to the 2021-22 season. Green said that Warriors defensive coordinator Mike Brown “challenged everyone” to be accountable defensively, and so far — it’s working.

“What they have in their favor is, they’ve had success when they’ve defended. They have that in their history and their experience. Steph understands that. Draymond understands that,” said Charlotte Hornets coach James Borrego, whose team recently suffered a 114-92 loss to Golden State. “When you have your two best players leading the charge on the defensive end, there’s got to be buy-in, and they understand that. They’re a smart group. It’s probably pushing the younger guys to defend at a higher level much quicker than they expected,

Relive how Red Bull’s Max Verstappen took the lead of the Mexico City GP, with Valtteri Bottas sent spinning back from pole

Max Verstappen secured a dominant win in the Mexico City GP to take a potentially significant step in his quest to end Lewis Hamilton’s reign as world champion, opening his title lead to 19 points with four races left.

Hamilton just held off Mexico’s own Sergio Perez, Verstappen’s team-mate, for second place against a clearly-faster race car but first and third still represented a big comeback result for Red Bull after they were surprisingly outqualified by Mercedes.

Verstappen made light work of the Valtteri Bottas-Hamilton front row by impressively slipstreaming past both on an outside line at the start, decisively claiming a lead he never relinquished outside of the pit stops.

He won by 16.5s for a record third victory in Mexico and a ninth of a 2021 season where the momentum increasingly looks to be with the 24-year-old Dutchman in his engrossing fight with Hamilton for the drivers’ crown.

“You just have to congratulate Red Bull because their pace was on another level,” said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff to Sky F1. “In the end for Lewis’ championship, it was damage limitation.”

Hamilton said: “Congratulations to Max, their car is far superior this weekend and there was nothing we could really do about it.”
