FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Like the rest of his Arkansas teammates, Brooks Ellis spent much of the offseason focused on a better start to the season than in recent years.Now that the No. 24 Razorbacks (2-0) have reached that goal, the middle linebacker isnt about to let the hint of success get in the way of what he hopes are greater things ahead.Arkansas made its return to national relevance with a dramatic double-overtime victory over TCU a week ago, the Razorbacks eighth win in their last nine games dating back to last season.Ellis was at the center of the win, finishing with 13 tackles and a 47-yard interception return for a touchdown. And after starting last season 2-4, including a shocking loss to Toledo, hes not about to let Arkansas relax as it prepares to face Sun Belt Conference member Texas State (1-0) on Saturday.Its easy to get caught up in what happened last week, because it was a great game, but its time to move on and time to get ready for Texas State, Ellis said. Because theyre a good team, and we have to be ready for them.Ellis has reason to be wary of the Bobcats, who are led by first-year coach Everett Withers. In addition to the fact Texas State opened its season with a 56-54 victory in three overtimes at Ohio, the Razorbacks also remember their struggles in a non-conference game to open the season -- a 21-20 victory over Louisiana Tech.Much more is expected now out of Arkansas following last weeks win over the Horned Frogs, and theyd prefer to avoid a third straight close game to start the season while sticking around for a while in the national rankings.Weve won eight out of nine, and I think we should have won the ninth (against Mississippi State last season), Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said. ... I am excited about where our program is.Some other things to watch as Arkansas tries to remain undefeated entering Southeastern Conference play next week against Texas A&M:ALL ABOUT TEMPO: Texas State used its up-tempo offense to manage 98 plays in its season-opening win, and Withers wants that number to be in at least the 80s this week. That will be no easy task against an Arkansas team that leads the SEC in time of possession. The challenge for us is to get the ball back to the offense so we can go tempo and get more than five, six, seven possession per game, Withers said. The key is getting off the field (on defense), because what teams like Arkansas is they wear you down.ALLENS BREAKOUT: Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen bounced back from an up-and-down starter debut against Louisiana Tech with a career day in last weeks victory. The junior was 17-of-29 passing and accounted for four touchdowns against TCU, including a game-winning 5-yard run, and hes hoping for more of the same on Saturday.EARLY BYE: Texas State had a bye last week after its opening win, and Withers said the Bobcats went back into training camp mode with a week off so early in the season. The former James Madison coach, when asked about the win two weeks ago over Ohio, even joked the game was like a year ago.WORKHOUSE WILLIAMS: Less than a year after breaking his neck that resulted in surgery, Arkansas running back Rawleigh Williams had career-highs with 28 carries and 137 yards rushing against TCU. The sophomore now has 52 carries through the first two games and has clearly established himself as the primary rushing option for Bielema.FAMILIAR JONES: Texas State quarterback Tyler Jones brings plenty of experience to Saturdays game, having played in each of the last four seasons for the Bobcats and thrown for 6,712 yards in his career. Jones was 40-of-55 passing for 418 yards and four touchdowns in the Bobcats opening win.---AP College Football site: http://collegefootball.ap.org John Franklin-Myers Stitched Jersey . Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. Travin Howard Stitched Jersey . The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and final big league season, has said hed like to play the outfield. Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees finish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. http://www.eliteramsshopnfl.com/ogbonnia-okoronkwo-stitched-jersey/ . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. Black Rams Jerseys . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter.

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA guard Jordin Canada was so focused on grabbing the one rebound she needed for her first career triple double that when teammate Monique Billings flung away the rebounded basketball they both held, Canada glared at her. Players and coaches on the UCLA bench all knew what was at stake and collectively groaned in disbelief.Everyone finished with smiles because Canada grabbed her 10th rebound with 48 seconds left.Canada had 11 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists to lead No. 9 UCLA to a 95-47 win over Southern University on Friday night.Its the sixth triple-double in school history, and Canada also crossed the 1,000-point mark, a milestone she didnt realized she reached until after the game.Its also an honor. Its a great feeling to know that Ive put in the work, Canada said. Im very proud of myself, but its not all about points. Yes, its a great honor, but its not everything.Billings had a double-double with 22 points and 15 rebounds, her fifth consecutive one dating back to last season. She also set a career-high with six steals.But she drew the ire of her point guard.We have goals that we have to meet. Mo was one rebound away from getting 15 rebounds, which was her goal, Canada said. I was one rebound away from getting a triple double. At the time, I thought she already met her goal. When the ball went up we both had it, and I was screaming because I wanted it. She took it away. I was mad. I didnt realize she hadnt met her goal until afterward, so I felt bad. Were just really passionate about getting our goals.UCLA had just nine players available. Four players are injured and have yet to play this season.Canada prides herself on passing, defending and, when a milestone is on the line, rebounding.Ive never seen Jordan so mad at me running down the court, Billings said with a laugh. She got her rebound too, after so its all good.Skylar OBear scored 14 points and Briana Green added 112 for Southern (1-2).ddddddddddddKennedy Burke led the Bruins in scoring with 23 points, including a career-high five 3-pointers. UCLA had a school-record 14 3-pointers as a team, breaking the mark of 12 set against Hawaii in 2009.BIG PICTURE:Southern got the experience of playing one of the best teams in the country on the road and will have plenty of learning opportunities in a postgame film session.UCLA has its sights set on a national championship and with a loss to No. 2 Baylor on the road four days ago, it showed the Bruins theres work to be done. UCLA dominated at home on Friday, where it plays so well, but hasnt won a road game against a ranked opponent in its last 13 consecutive games.UP NEXT:Southern University returns home to play Bethune-Cookman on Thursday but its a one-game stint in New Orleans as the Jaguars play six of their first eight games on the road.UCLA hosts Cal Poly on Sunday before traveling to Mexico for the Cancun Challenge, which starts on Thanksgiving.POLL IMPLICATIONS After the loss at No. 2 Baylor on Monday, which came after the polls were released earlier in the day, UCLA likely will fall out of the top 10. The Bruins played Southern on Friday, which has just one win, and will play Cal Poly, which lost its first two games of the season, on Sunday, so wins against those teams likely wouldnt help keep UCLA in the top 10.QUOTABLEI think were still not playing anywhere close to what were going to become. Thats a good news-bad news. Its bad news because we missed an opportunity at Baylor. The good news is that theres no danger this group is going to peak early. We have so many things we still need to work on. On the other hand, were shooting the ball great. Were a selfless team.-- UCLA coach Cori Close on ways to improve after a 48-point win Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
