BC falls to Army in final minute

Quarterback Trent Steelman's 29-yard rushing touchdown with 45 seconds left led Army to a 34-31 victory over Boston College. The Eagles fell to 1-4.

The Steelman run came less than two minutes after the BC defense had stuffed running back Raymond Maples on a fourth-and-goal from the BC 1-yard-line with 2:03 left to play, preserving the Eagles' 31-27 advantage. However, BC's offense went three-and-out on three straight runs and then was penalized five yards, with the subsequent punt giving Army the ball back just 38 yards from the end zone. On the third play of the drive, Steelman broke free for the game-winning score. 

Army ran for an astonishing 516 yards, with Maples (184), Steelman (141) and Larry Dixon (128) each having huge days. For Boston College, Andre Williams ran for 191 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries while quarterback Chase Rettig was 16-for-29 for 234 yards, a touchdown and no picks. But that offense wasn't enough, as the...

Francona named next Indians manager

The Indians announced via their team twitter feed that former Red Sox manager Terry Francona has been named the 42nd manager in team history. A press conference introducing him will take place on Monday. Francona will inherit an Indians team that finished last year with a 68-94 record.

In 12 years as a big league manager, Francona has a 1,029-915 record (.529 winning percentage), having followed four difficult years in Philadelphia from 1997-2000 (285-363, .440) with eight tremendously successful seasons in Boston during which he went 744-552 (.574) during which he led the Sox to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007. 

Francona spent the 2001 season as a special assistant to the GM with the Indians, during which he became close with both Mark Shapiro (now the Indians president) and Chris Antonetti (now Indians GM). He has often referred to that year as one of his most important as a manager. (For more on his ties to Cleveland and the appeal of...

NFL fines Spikes $21,000 for Chandler hit

FOXBORO -- After one of the most physical games of his three-year career, Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes had to pay for one of the hits that made his game so successful on Sunday against the Bills.

The NFL fined Spikes $21,000 for his hit on Bills tight end Scott Chander in the fourth quarter as Devin McCourty was returning an interception deep into Buffalo territory. The NFL ruled the hit - which left Chandler momentarily dazed - was "unnecessary" and dangerous. 

Spikes forced a fumble and and had several other big hits in New England's 52-28 win over the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
