LINCOLN, Neb. Phil Simms Jersey . -- Nebraska ran on 51 of its 64 plays from scrimmage against Fresno State in a performance reminiscent of Tom Osbornes pound-the-ground teams of yesteryear.Only Air Force, Army and Navy -- all triple-option teams -- attempted fewer passes than the Cornhuskers the first weekend of the season.On Monday, Mike Riley couldnt remember a game hes coached where his team threw so little. He joked that he would have to go back to his playing days when he was the quarterback at Corvallis (Oregon) High to find a game where his team attempted only 13 passes.The coach was smart. I couldnt throw very well, Riley said, laughing.The Huskers (1-0) generated 292 of their 406 yards on the ground in their 43-10 win over Fresno State on Saturday. Dont expect the same run-pass breakdown this week against Wyoming (1-0).We liked the rushing yards, he said, but we didnt have anywhere near the balance we need as we go forward in the passing game.Tommy Armstrong Jr. threw a beautiful 57-yard touchdown pass to Alonzo Moore off play-action in the second half. That play accounted for half of the Huskers passing yards. Armstrong wasnt sharp otherwise, completing only 5 of 10 passes. Backup Ryker Fyfle was 1 for 3.I thought we could run, but I didnt envision that at all, offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said. I think its good for our team, but we have to be able to hit some more throws. The way we were throwing wasnt giving me much confidence to throw it all.Devine Ozigbo had 17 carries for 103 yards, Terrell Newby 11 for 56 and Armstrong 11 for 42. The Huskers ran for five of their six touchdowns against an opponent that ranked 117th against the run in 2015.Nebraska passed only once in its first 21 plays, and its 13 total attempts were the fewest since the Huskers had the same number in a 41-31 win over Miami two years ago.Riley, who came to Lincoln last year with a reputation for developing passers, will be able to implement more of his pro-style offense once four-year starter Armstrong leaves. Riley recognizes Armstrongs running ability and has said he plans to incorporate it into the offense more than he did last year.But Riley also knows that leaning so much on the running game wont fly against the stout rushing defenses in the Big Ten.The Huskers were celebrated for being run-heavy in their 37-29 Foster Farms Bowl victory over UCLA last December. Nebraska ran on 62 of its 81 plays for a season-high 326 yards against the 98th-ranked rushing defense.Riley said the difference between the bowl game and the Fresno State game was that Armstrong was an efficient 12 of 19 passing for 174 yards against the Bruins.Had we looked sharper, I might be all right with how many times we threw (against Fresno State), Riley said. When we threw against UCLA, it was pretty effective, good percentages. It felt a lot better even though there were only six more attempts, I suppose. It just felt better.---Online: AP college football website: http://collegefootball.ap.org Carl Banks Giants Jersey . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. Landon Collins Giants Jersey . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. http:///...arson-Giants-Jersey/ . Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). MILWAUKEE -- Yasmani Grandal, who hadnt hit a home run on the road this season, was just trying to get on base after working a 3-0 count with two outs in the fourth inning.Grandal did more than that, hitting a solo home run over the bullpen in left field, one of three Los Angeles Dodgers to homer off Milwaukee Brewers starter Zach Davies in an 8-1 victory Thursday.Overall, he didnt have his best outing today, Grandal said of Davies. Hes a really good pitcher. We were just able to get a lot of base hits, a couple of home runs and get him out of the game quick.Trayce Thompson and Corey Seager also hit home runs for the Dodgers.It was nice to get some runs, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Kenta Maeda (7-5) held the Brewers to one run over six innings as the Dodgers won the season series from the Brewers, five games to two.The strong start by Maeda was needed by the Dodgers, who announced before the game that they were placing ace Clayton Kershaw on the 15-day disabled list with a back injury. An MRI revealed a mild disk herniation that will not require surgery, the team announced after the game. A timetable for Kershaws return hasnt been determined.Los Angeles acquired veteran pitcher Bud Norris from the Atlanta Braves on Thursday. Norris will start in place of Kershaw on Friday.When you start losing starters, it gets tough on your staff and your team, but Kenta took the ball today and gave us six strong innings, Roberts said.Maeda gave up three hits, struck out six and walked two. He allowed one run in 6 1/3 innings against the Brewers in Los Angeles on June 19.My team really helped me out today, scoring early runs, Maeda said through an interpreter.Thompson put the Dodgers in front in the second with a two-run homer into the second deck in left field off Davies (5-4). Grandal extended the Dodgers lead to 3-1 in the fourth. Seagers shot to straightaway center in the fifth accounted for two of the Dodgers three runs in the inning, pushing the lead to 6-1.Los Angeles added two runs in the sixth, including one on a run-scoring double by Adrian Gonzalez.Davies, who had been 5-0 wiith a 2. Eli Manning Jersey. 64 ERA over his last 10 starts, gave up a season-high six earned runs in 4 1/3 innings. He surrendered eight hits, walked two and struck out three. The three home runs were the most allowed by Davies in 20 career starts.HITTING STREAKSDodgers: Seager extended his hitting streak to 13 games, a career high for the second-year player, with a first-inning single.Brewers: Ryan Brauns third-inning single extended his hitting streak to 11 games.DOUBLE ERRORMaeda attempted to pick off Jonathan Villar in the fifth but his throw sailed past Gonzalez at first base. Justin Turner retrieved the ball but his throwing error allowed Villar to reach third. Maeda and Turner both were charged with errors but the Brewers failed to score in the inning.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: CF Joc Pederson was out of the lineup for the second consecutive day after suffering a bruised AC joint when he crashed into the outfield wall while making a spectacular catch in the eighth inning of Tuesdays game. I think well make a decision with what we do with Joc, as far as the roster, in the next day or two, Roberts said.Brewers: RHP Taylor Jungmann, who began the season in the starting rotation before being demoted to Triple-A Colorado Springs after posting a 0-4 record and an ERA of 9.15 in five starts, has been reassigned to Double-A Biloxi after a period of mental rest. Jungmann also struggled at Colorado Springs, going 1/3 with a 9.87 ERA in eight starts. He was scheduled to start for Biloxi on Thursday at Birmingham.UP NEXTDodgers: Los Angeles begins a season-high, 10-game homestand on Friday against Colorado. Kershaw had been scheduled to start. The newly acquired Norris, who last pitched on Sunday, gets the start in Kershaws place.Brewers: Matt Garza (1-0, 2.81), who recorded his first win of the season on Saturday, will take the mound as Milwaukee opens a three-game series at St. Louis on Friday. Garza is 4-4 with a 4.07 ERA in 12 career starts against the Cardinals. 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 Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
