San Diego State thinks it has Heisman contender on campus – USA Today
If the Aztecs flourish this fall — and as owners of an active 10-game winning streak, there’s ample cause for optimism — it will be in large part as a result of one player in particular: senior running back Donnel Pumphrey, a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate and the heir to Marshall Faulk’s legacy at the position.
Cashner’s grit paves way for Padres’ comeback – MLB.com
Cashner put forth one of the grittiest efforts by a Padres pitcher this season. He needed 57 pitches to get through the first two innings, but faced the minimum after a leadoff single in the third as he finished an impressive six innings. The gutty effort allowed the Padres to rally and get him a much-deserved victory.
The win gave the Padres their second consecutive series victory. They have won 4 out of their last 5 games and are now just 3.5 games out of first place in the NL West. They’ll go for the sweep against the Colorado Rockies today, with first pitch at 12:30pm PT, and you can catch all of the action on 1090AM.

Through adversity, Warriors show again why they’re a force to be emulated – USA Today
The Golden State Warriors faced a tough situation, down big to the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 2, knowing that a 1-1 tie would all but force Steph Curry to return for Game 3 from a sprained knee.
