W&J Football Heads to Kentucky
Washington & Jefferson (9-1) throttled Waynesburg, 33-14, Saturday afternoon to win the Presidents Athletic Conference championship and a bid to the NCAA Division III tournament. Sunday evening, the W&J squad found out they'd be on the road for the first round, visiting Centre College in Danville, KY. The Colonels (9-1) have won six straight games since losing to Southern Athletic Association co-champion, Berry, in late September. W&J is making its 26th appearance in the NCAA tournament in the past 35 years. Hear the game on WJPA-AM (1450) beginning with Presidents Football Preview at 11:30 am.

Late TD Leads Giants Over 49ers
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Eli Manning threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard with 53 seconds left and the New York Giants snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the San Francisco 49ers 27-23 on Monday night. Manning threw two TD passes to Odell Beckham Jr. and then engineered the late game-winning drive with help from a pair of third-down penalties against Malcolm Smith and Ahkello Witherspoon. Saquon Barkley then had a 23-yard catch to get the ball into the red zone and Manning connected with Shepard on third down to give the Giants (2-7) the win. Matt Breida ran for 101 yards and scored two touchdowns for the 49ers (2-8), who were unable to win consecutive games under third-string quarterback Nick Mullens. Breida's 23-yard run helped set up a 30-yard field goal by Robbie Gould that gave the Niners a 23-20 lead with 2:46 to play.

Bengals Fire Defensive Coordinator
UNDATED (AP) - The Bengals have fired defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, a day after their historically bad performance in a 51-14 loss to the Saints. New Orleans scored on every possession except the last one - when it took a knee in field-goal range - during its rout at Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals (5-4) have given up 500 yards in three straight games - a first in the Super Bowl era - and are on pace to give up an NFL record for yards in a season.

Pitt Knocks Off Troy
UNDATED (AP) - PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jared Wilson-Frame scored 24 points off the bench and freshman point guard Xavier Johnson had 15 points, nine assists and seven rebounds as Pittsburgh remained unbeaten with an 84-75 victory over Troy. Kene Chukwuka added a career-high 13 points for the Panthers and Terrell Brown chipped in 12 as Pitt improved to 3-0. Jordon Varnado led Troy with 22 points and Alex Hicks added 16 and Troy hung around despite never leading and shooting just 35 percent (22 of 63) from the floor.

Duke Atop AP Basketball Poll
NEW YORK (AP) - Duke has supplanted Kansas atop the new AP Top 25 poll after its dominating win against Kentucky, giving the Blue Devils a record number of appearances at No. 1. The Blue Devils jumped from fourth to first in Monday's first regular-season poll. That allowed Duke to set a record with its 135th week at No. 1, breaking a tie with UCLA for most all-time. Duke claimed 48 of 65 first-place votes after beating then-No. 2 Kentucky by 34 points in their opener. It was impressive enough to bump the preseason No. 1 Jayhawks, who fell to No. 2 despite a quality win of their own against then-No. 10 Michigan State. Gonzaga was third, followed by Virginia and Tennessee to round out the top 5.

Ohtani & Acuna Claim Rookie Honors
UNDATED (AP) - Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani has been voted American League Rookie of the Year after becoming the first player since Babe Ruth with 10 homers and four pitching wins in the same season. Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. was an overwhelming pick for the National League honor, easily beating Washington outfielder Juan Soto. Ohtani, a 24-year-old right-hander who joined the Angels last winter after five seasons with Japan's Nippon Ham Fighters, received 25 first-place votes and four seconds for 137 points from the Baseball Writers' Association of America in balloting announced Monday. Acuna started the season at Triple-A and made his debut on April 25, the youngest player in the majors then at 20 years, 128 days. The Venezuelan hit .293 with 26 homers, 64 RBIs and 16 steals with a .917 OPS. He set a Braves record with eight leadoff homers this season and tied a franchise mark by homering in five straight games from Aug. 11-14.
