Pens Schultz Out For Next Four Months
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Justin Schultz will miss the next four months because of a fractured left leg. Schultz injured the leg in the first period of a shootout loss to Montreal on Saturday after getting tangled up with Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec. The team announced Monday that Schultz underwent surgery Sunday and will be out until February. The 28-year-old Schultz has four assists in four games this season for Pittsburgh.

Steelers Pull Out Win In Cincy
CINCINNATI (AP) - James Conner ran for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the eve of Le'Veon Bell's possible return, and Antonio Brown turned a short pass into a 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left as the Pittsburgh Steelers pulled off another improbable comeback in Cincinnati, beating the Bengals 28-21 on Sunday. The Steelers (3-2-1) have won eight in a row against their AFC North rival, three times rallying in the final minute at Paul Brown Stadium to keep it going. After Joe Mixon's 4-yard touchdown run with 1:18 left got the Bengals (4-2) thinking this might finally be the time they end the streak, Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers stunned them again. Brown caught a short pass and outran the secondary for the winning score, leaving thousands of Steelers fans twirling their towels in the stands. The Steelers are 16-2 at Paul Brown Stadium during Marvin Lewis' 16 seasons as Bengals coach, including a pair of playoff wins. Same outcome as usual. This one ended with a brief scuffle after Andy Dalton's final pass fell incomplete, leaving him 3-12 all-time against Pittsburgh.

Red Sox Even Up ALCS
BOSTON (AP) - Jackie Bradley Jr. has allowed the Boston Red Sox to even the American League Championship Series at a game apiece. Bradley hit a go-ahead, three-run double off Gerrit Cole in the third inning of the Red Sox's 7-5 victory over the Astros. Houston led 4-2 until the Boston outfielder put his team ahead to stay. The Bosox struck first as Andrew Benintendi and Rafael Devers delivered RBI singles in the bottom of the first. George Springer quick tied the game with a two-run double in the second, one inning before Marwin Gonzalez launched a two-run homer. Devers and Mookie Betts each had two hits while scoring twice to help the Red Sox rebound from Saturday's 7-2 loss in the opener. Winning pitcher Matt Barnes retired all four batters he faced after replacing David Price, who was reached for four runs on five hits and four walks over 4 2/3 innings. Craig Kimbrel allowed Jose Altuve's RBI single in the ninth before getting the save. Cole was reached for four earned runs and six hits over six innings. Game 3 is Tuesday at Houston.

AP College Football Poll
UNDATED (AP) - The Associated Press college football poll has a new look after four of the top eight teams lost. Alabama remains No. 1, with Ohio State reaching No. 2. Third-ranked Clemson and No. 4 Notre Dame each moved up one spot. LSU jumped eight spots to No. 5 after handing Georgia its first loss of the season. The Bulldogs slipped from No. 2 to No. 8. Michigan moved into the top 10 for the first time this season, reaching No. 6 after blowing out Wisconsin. Texas climbed two spots to No. 7. No. 9 Oklahoma moved back into the top 10 while it was idle and Central Florida remained No. 10.

Almirola Wins at Talladega
TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Aric Almirola finished a Stewart-Haas Racing rout at Talladega Superspeedway by taking his first win of the season with a last-lap pass. Almirola's win earned him an automatic berth into the third round of the playoffs. He was part of a four-car Ford tandem that dominated the entire race. Kurt Busch, Clint Bowyer, Kevin Harvick and Almirola had pulled away from the field and were in control until a caution sent the race into overtime.

High School Football Playoff Picture Forming
With two weeks of football to play, some area schools have clinched playoff spots, some have been eliminated from the chase and the rest are in limbo. The WPIAL will announce the playoff pairings on Monday, Oct. 29. Class 6A with include six teams, Class 5A and Class 2A will have 16 teams each, while the other three classes will have 8-team brackets. Here's a look at the area teams and where they stand:

Class 6A, Quad County--Canon-McMillan holds tie-breaker advantage over Norwin in the battle for the final berth. The Big Macs play Central Catholic and Butler in the final two weeks. Norwin can force a three-way tie by beating either Mt. Lebanon this week or Seneca Valley on the final night.

Class 5A, Allegheny Eight--Peters Township is locked in a four-way tie for first with West Allegheny, Upper St. Clair and Bethel Park, each with one loss. The Indians host Bethel Park and Baldwin to close the regular season.

Class 4A, Big Eight--Both Trinity and Ringgold have been eliminated.

Class 3A, Tri-County West--Waynesburg is eliminated.

Class 2A, Century--Charleroi, McGuffey and Wash High have all clinched berths. The Week 9 match between the Highlanders and Little Prexies is likely for second place and a home playoff game. If Frazier beats Carmichaels this Friday, the Frazier at Beth-Center winner in Week 9 will take the final playoff spot. Carmichaels has been eliminated.

Class 2A, Three Rivers--Burgettstown has clinched a playoff berth and takes the section title with a win at Brentwood Friday or at home against South Allegheny in Week 9. Fort Cherry needs to sweep South South Beaver and Serra Catholic to have a shot at a berth.

Class 1A, Tri-County South--No one has clinched yet, though West Greene and California are in a three-way tie with Monessen atop the standings. If all three win out, all three will make the playoffs. A coin flip could be necessary to determine the order of finish entering the tournament. Bentwoth and Chartiers-Houston could each finish as high as third and be in the Wild Card discussion. Avella, Jeff-Morgan and Mapletown are all eliminated.
