Missouri kicker owns offense

CARSON, Calif. — Missouri's Andrew Baggett hit six field goals, including a 22-yarder early in the fourth quarter, to lift the National team to an 18-17 victory over the American in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Saturday.

Baggett's winner with 13:48 left came three plays after defensive end Kyle Kragen of California recovered a fumble by Utah quarterback Travis Wilson on the American 10-yard line. That was Kragen's third sack of the game.

Stephen Rivers, the younger brother of San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, threw a 12-yard touchdown to wide receiver Jayden Mickens of Washington with 2:31 left in the first half, giving the American team a 17-6 lead. Rivers, who threw for 1,394 yards and nine touchdowns at Northwestern State in 2015, completed 11 of 14 passes for 97 yards.

TCU's Trevor Boykin, suspended from the Alamo Bowl after being arrested because of a bar fight, completed 1 of 3 passes with an interception, playing in the first quarter.

  1. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say that the Rays are out of it, but they did score six runs Tuesday in a 6-5 win over the Blue Jays.

  2. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Tuesday's Rays-Blue Jays game

    The Heater

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off major right knee surgery, understandably often takes it easy running the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single.

  3. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.

    UPDATE, 5:52: Cash said the off-day should have done the Rays good after losing 12 of their last 16 games and 20 of their last 30, with just one day off in that stretch:

    Chris Archer will be on the mound for the Rays.
