Football: Northeast 24, Dixie Hollins 23

ST. PETERSBURG — Dixie Hollins was positioned for a last-second win Friday but a field-goal try with 12 seconds remaining was blocked and Northeast escaped with a 24-23 victory in Mike Jalazo's first game as Vikings coach.

The game was tied at 10 at halftime. In the third quarter, Vikings freshman Ryan Davis led a short drive capped by a 5-yard pass to Dalton Clark. Dixie responded as Dana Harrington connected with De'Vonte Marion for a 34-yard TD.

After trading scores again, Northeast held a one-point lead after a missed extra point.

Dana Harrington kept the Rebels in the game, darting down the sideline for a 40-yard gain and setting up the field-goal try. The Vikings blocked the attempt to escape with the win.

    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    SOUTHPORT, England — Now that the PGA Championship in Charlotte next month has gone from a big deal to a big-big deal because of Jordan Spieth, there is no telling where he might lead us. On Sunday, of course, he led us way up a dune.

Gerald McCoy may be upset that Ronde Barber said a defensive leader “has to have a huge personality’’ like Warren Sapp’s. Monday, Barber walked that back.
