LINCOLN, Neb. Adrian Beltre Jersey . -- Nebraskas fourth-quarter dominance showed up again Saturday. This time it was Terrell Newby leading the way.The senior ran for 113 of his 140 yards and scored two touchdowns in the last 15 minutes, just in time for the 15th-ranked Cornhuskers to turn back Illinois upset bid and win 31-16.Newby touched the ball on 18 of Nebraskas last 21 plays from scrimmage and the Cornhuskers (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) won going away after being down 16-10. They also avenged a 14-13 loss last year in Champaign.Newby, I thought, was a real man today, Nebraska coach Mike Riley said.Newby didnt have much choice. Fellow running back Devine Ozigbo went out of the game late in the third quarter with an ankle injury, and backup Mikale Wilbon was banged up.I knew I had to kind of carry the load from then on, Newby said. I accepted it and wanted to do everything in my power to get the victory.Newbys two TDs came as Nebraska scored 21 straight points to overcome a 16-10 deficit. The Huskers have outscored their five opponents 78-6 in the fourth quarter.Illinois (1-3, 0-1) got off only 10 offensive plays after taking its six-point lead with 7:40 left in the third quarter. The Illini have lost 14 straight and 23 of 24 against Top 25 opponents.We got better today. We still have a loss but I think we made improvements, Illinois coach Lovie Smith said. We hung in there throughout, had a lead for most of the game, but its about finishing. We didnt do that.Nebraska, favored by three touchdowns, turned over the ball on back-to-back possessions while falling behind. The Illini had to settle for field goals after each takeaway, allowing the Huskers to stay close.The Huskers went 18 plays in 10:42 to take a one-point lead early in the fourth. Nebraska kept the drive alive because of two huge penalties on the Illini. Chunky Clements had Tommy Armstrong Jr. stopped for a loss on a third-and-12, but he was called for a horse-collar tackle, and Darius Mosley was flagged for pass interference on a fourth-and-4.The biggest play, though, was when Newby picked up a first down by inches on a fourth-and-1 at the Illinois 4. The spot stood after a video review.Its a game of inches, Newby said. I tried to do everything I could to stretch the ball out. Im glad it went our way.Newby went into the end zone from the 3 on the next play, and he finished the scoring with a 63-yard burst.Reggie Corbin led the Illini with 72 yards on nine carries, and Kendrick Foster scored their only touchdown on a 31-yard run. Wes Lunt was 13 for 22 for 133 yards.Definitely no moral victories, Lunt said, but were so close to breaking through. Were leading all the way up to the fourth and battled through adversity all game. But at the end, they made a few plays and won the game.THE TAKEAWAYILLINOIS: The Illini, who have lost three in a row since winning their opener, gave Nebraska all it could handle. The offense couldnt get going again once the Huskers took the lead, and the defense was on the field way too long.NEBRASKA: The Huskers should feel good about getting out of this one with a win considering all their injuries. Jordan Westerkamp was taken to a hospital to be evaluated after he appeared to take a knee to the back while getting tackled. Tight end Cethan Carter injured his elbow early in the game.Looking at our team and watching that thing take place, it appears to be a real good time for a bye week, Riley said.POLL IMPLICATIONSNebraska has a chance to move up, but the Huskers arent ready to break into the top 10 for the first time since 2011.LAST WORDWell, did you all stay around for the fourth quarter? That didnt look like much up until then. -- Riley.UP NEXTILLINOIS: The Illini return home to face Purdue, which they beat 48-14 last season.NEBRASKA: The Huskers have an open date next week before visiting Indiana on Oct. 15. It will be the Huskers first game against Indiana since they became Big Ten members in 2011.---Online:AP college football website: Ivan Rodriguez Jersey . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. Joey Gallo Jersey .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. . Robinson finished with 17 points, all but two in the second half, and Lawson had 14 after halftime and finished with a game-high 11 assists as the Nuggets handed Dallas its first home loss in eight games this season. J.J. Hickson led Denver with 22, and Kenneth Faried added 10 points and 10 rebounds. MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- There seems to be a lot of anger around Miami this week.Such is to be expected after losing to archrival Florida State yet again, with the Hurricanes falling when a potentially game-tying extra point was blocked in the final moments a week ago. And Miami hasnt forgotten the beating North Carolina administered a year ago, when the Tar Heels rolled to a 59-21 win and enjoyed it a little too much for the Hurricanes liking.They embarrassed us last year obviously, and we have a chip on our shoulders about that, Miami defensive end Trent Harris said. Especially after this loss, were going to make someone pay.Here comes Miamis chance. The 16th-ranked Hurricanes (4-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) play host to North Carolina (4-2, 2-1) Saturday afternoon, a game that shapes up to be critical for the hopes of each club in the Coastal Division race.Its going to be huge, North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said. Another ranked opponent on the road in a hostile environment.Its the third straight week that North Carolina has faced a ranked foe. The Tar Heels beat Florida State two weeks ago on a field goal at the buzzer, then lost to Virginia Tech last week in a downpour brought on by Hurricane Matthew. North Carolina looked so out of sorts in the 34-3 loss that Miami didnt even put much stock in the game film -- knowing the weather was an enormous factor.Miami is considerably banged up. Offensive lineman Sunny Odogwu is out after surgery for a broken leg suffered in last weeks Florida State loss, and quarterback Brad Kaaya dealt with shoulder issues in practice this week as well.The Tar Heels have a chance to become the second team since 1973 to win at Florida State and Miami in the same season. Virginia pulled it off in 2011.---Heres some things know going into the North Carolina-Miami game:THINK FAST: These teams can score quickly. Miami has 14 touchdown drives that lasted less than 2 minutes so far this season, and North Carolina has nine. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. The longest Miami TD drive this season lasted 3:42, while North Carolinas longest is 4:32. And both are among the lowest-ranked nationally in time of possession -- Miami is 123rd out of 128 FBS teams with an average possession time of 24:14, North Carolina is 127th at 22:47.SWITZER RISING: North Carolina wide receiver Ryan Switzer comes into the game with 197 career catches. Only six active FBS players came into this weekend with more, and Switzer is nine catches away from passing Quinshad Davis for the Tar Heel career record. And in the two games preceding last weeks storm-affected game, Switzer had 30 catches for 366 yards.KAAYA WATCH: Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya has 7,585 career yards. Hes 105 away from tying Gino Torretta for No. 4 on the Hurricanes all-time list, and 311 shy of matching Stephen Morris for No. 3 all-time. Kaaya could also pass Torretta and Morris in career completions this week -- he comes in with 541, 10 behind Morris (No. 4 in Miami history on that list) and 14 behind Torretta (No. 3).HOODS RETURN: The Tar Heels expect RB Elijah Hood back this week, after he missed the Virginia Tech game with a concussion. UNC missed Hoods physical and tackler-punishing running style in the heavy rain against the Hokies. He said he had been working back in with the protocol and practiced fully this week. I did the ... testing and everything and it kind of cleared up, all the symptoms went away, Hood said.RICHT REBOUNDS: Miami coach Mark Richt typically has teams back on track quickly after a loss. In his 15 seasons at Georgia, Richts teams went 23-9 when playing in the week immediately following a defeat. This game is the second crack Richt gets at career win No. 150, and is his first time opposing North Carolina as a head coach.---AP college football website: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
