Newcastle, who had not played since the 5-1 hammering at Chelsea 18 days ago, knew that a point would move them out of the bottom three at the expense of Sunderland and Norwich. But the Magpies arrived at a cold, wet and windswept Britannia Stadium having scored just seven away goals this season – the lowest total in the entire English league. That miserable statistic did not look like improving, with the visitors – despite a resolute defensive display – barely stretching Potters keeper Butland throughout.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is a Cameroonian footballer who plays for Schalke 04 as a winger. Choupo-Moting joined die Knappen in 2014, but he played for fellow German sides Mainz, Nurnberg and Hamburger in the past as well. He was part of FC St. Pauli during his youth career. The Cameroonian international, who was born in Altona, Hamburg, represented the Indomitable Lions at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and he made the Cameroon 2014 World Cup squad as well. Choupo-Moting is well for his speed and he often makes life difficult for the opposition defenders. His main position is left wing, but he is capable of playing as a centre forward.
Stoke dominated most of the game, but neither side failed to create clear chances in a low-key first half. Newcastle improved after the break but went behind when Shaqiri’s 20-yard strike flew in past Rob Elliot. Jack Butland superbly saved substitute Seydou Doumbia’s injury-time header as Stoke clinched a third straight win. And, seconds after Doumbia almost levelled, the Potters hit the crossbar through Marko Arnautovic’s stinging shot.

The Toffees have been making hay against lesser opposition since Big Sam took charge, but also fared as well as expected when holding Liverpool away and Chelsea at home to draws. The latter result in particular showed what Everton can achieve defensively at Goodison Park as they shut out the reigning champions, albeit they were clear second best in terms of possession and chances created.

The chances of that are rather high. Gonzaga has beaten Santa Clara in 15 consecutive matchups, and the haven’t won in Spokane since 2007. Last year, the Zags beat the Broncos 90-55 at home. It was the team’s first home game as the No. 1 team in the country. Mark Few is 38-4 against Santa Clara all-time. This one seems like we can put it in the books as a great way to end 2017. But, as we all know, The Kennel is a different beast in the winter.
He is a big key man, that’s why we were so good early. He was a physical presence, he stretches the floor,” Few said. “But it’s one of those things when you come back you don’t try things, maybe parts of your game you don’t do so well right when you come back. You just go to the simple catch-and-shoots and hit the glass. Santa Clara edged visiting Pepperdine 72-65 on Thursday. The Waves shot 52 percent and won the boards 35-25, but Santa Clara forced 16 turnovers and held a 12-point advantage in points off turnovers. Junior guard KJ Feagin (18.7) is second in the WCC in scoring behind Jock Landale of Saint Mary’s. Feagin has scored in double digits.
The freshman wing is a month removed from spraining his left ankle against Incarnate Word. He isn’t fully recovered, but he turned in his best performance since suffering the nasty sprain with 12 points and six rebounds in Thursday’s 81-48 rout over Pacific. I feel a lot better, the best I’ve felt in a month,” Kispert said. Kispert and the 20th-ranked Zags (11-3, 1-0 WCC) face a quick turnaround with Santa Clara (4-9, 1-0) visiting the McCarthey Athletic Center at 4 p.m. Saturday.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans: Friday Fact or Fiction for Week 17, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans: Odds, Analysis, NFL Betting Pick online watch now.
It’s a tough call – you want the Jaguars, especially the defense, to recover from a terrible outing in week 16, but momentum won’t matter if a key player gets hurt. The uncertainty makes it a game to predict. So what’s going to happen in the final game of the 2017 regular season? Will Marcus Mariota get his act together and lead the Titans to a win and clinch a playoff birth? Or will the Jaguars get payback from their humiliating week 2 loss? Click ahead to read my notorious, always correct predictions for week 17.
The Titans are trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and can still accomplish that goal despite losing their last three games. Even after falling to the Los Angeles Rams at home last week, they are 5-1 straight up in their last six games at Nissan Stadium and have gone 4-1 against the spread in their previous five overall. Tennessee is also 7-2 SU in its last nine home meetings with Jacksonville and won the first game this year on the road 37-16 back in Week 2. but you have to wonder if, at some point, he’ll decide enough is enough and pull the important guys.
Fans in south won’t be the only team watching a game with playoff implications as fans on the West Coast will be watching the Raiders-Chargers game (green shade). The Bills-Dolphins game (yellow shade) will be showing in Southern Florida, New York and in the states North of New York. Lastly, the Bengals-Ravens (red shade) game will be shown in the surrounding areas of Maryland and Ohio.

In that nine-day stretch, aside from a few days of holiday celebrations with family, the Boilermakers have been focusing on basketball, and basketball only. With no classes, it’s just a time to get in the gym and get better,” said PJ Thompson, who scored 17 points against Tennessee State. “There’s not that much stress going on, so it’s just strictly basketball over break. It’s a chance to improve your individual game and just get better at what Purdue needs to do in order to be better.
• Lipscomb ranks among the most likely teams in the country to either commit a turnover or have its shot blocked. That presents an opportunity for Purdue to build off of last week’s victory over Tennessee State. The Boilermakers blocked eight shots and collected nine steals that night. Everyone knows Purdue can shoot 3-pointers and score in the low post. Can it use transition more consistently and effectively during Big Ten Conference play. Carsen Edwards is coming off of back-to-back four assists games for the first time in his career. That’s a somewhat arbitrary number, since he’s had three or more in exactly half of Purdue’s 14 games.
The next portion of their schedule before resuming Big Ten play was expected to be relatively easy to start the season, but, now, the Boilermakers cannot afford to overlook the Tennessee State Tigers (or even the next opponents, Lipscomb).Though 5-5 on the season, the Tigers just lost by one point to the Texas Longhorns at the last second. They fought hard and had a chance to get a giant win for a program looking to get its feet back under them after several years of disappointing results. The OVC is not a two bid league.

Huskies coach Chris Petersen’s reputation for trick plays, born from his days at Boise State and especially the unforgettable 2007 Fiesta Bowl. Specials teams are “always of paramount importance,” Petersen said. “It’s every bit as important as offense or defense. It’s important every day to us.” Pettis is a senior with an NCAA-record nine career punt-return touchdowns (four in 2017) to go with his 15 receiving TDs this season. He averages a nation-leading 20.4 yards per punt and was a finalist for the Paul Hornung Award for the most versatile player in major college football.
The Rose Bowl is hosting one of the national semi-finals contests, but had it not, the match-up of Penn State versus Washington would have made a compelling choice under the annual Big Ten / Pac-12 system. Both teams have a great deal of respect for one another. Also, each team is a near mirror-image in terms of offensive skill players and shut-down defense. The Playstation Fiesta Bowl has all the making of another classic bowl game!
The running back duo is terrific with Penn State’s Saquon Barkley capable of a highlight any time he touches the ball, if his offensive line gives him room to work. Barkley is going up against a stingy Washington defense so there may not be much room to work for much of the night. This is expected to be the final game of Barkley’s career before heading off to the NFL, where he is likely to be a top 10 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The stats may not tell the full story of just how dangerous Barkley can be, but he can be a factor running the ball, catching the ball, and returning kicks.

Furthermore, Penn State was knocked out of the Playoff in a defeat on a rainy day in East Lansing against the Michigan State Spartans.

He said Thursday that even though he is looking forward to facing Washington and its vaunted rushing defense (4 p.m. ET Saturday), he has changed course on how he thinks about his peers and their choice to play or not in postseason games. The Washington linebackers are the weak spot in the defense. The Trojans stormed the field after a walk.

Xavier vs. DePaul: Game preview, prediction, TV schedule,Xavier looks to continue fast start vs DePaul. Xavier Basketball watch online live stream now DePaul vs Xavier.
They’re one of the nation’s best scoring teams at 87.2 points per game but are forced into shootouts due to a middle defense. DePaul became a comforting opponent for the Musketeers last year. Xavier dropped six straight Big East games last year. Their last victory before the losing streak and first two victories after the slide were against the Blue Demons. All of those wins were by exactly 11 points.
The Musketeers are 13-1 and have won eight straight games, including this past week at Northern Iowa and Marquette. The 13 wins equal Xavier’s most through 14 games. But, head coach Chris Mack always is looking for areas to improve. The Musketeers are prone to defensive lapses and they go through spells where they don’t take care of the ball. In Wednesday’s 91-87 win over Marquette, Xavier was bested on the offensive boards 12-9, and outscored 18-7 on second-chance points. Xavier may be playing in close games, but they only have one loss this season.
The Musketeers lead the all-time series 11-9, including six straight wins and victories in nine of the last 10 meetings. Xavier defeated DePaul three times last season, including 79-65 in the regular-season finale in Chicago, and 75-64 in the next game for both teams at the Big East tournament at Madison Square Garden. DePaul hasn’t beaten Xavier since a 71-68 win at home on Jan. 3, 2015. DePaul began Big East play this week with a loss to top-ranked Villanova.
