Rams Pummel Pats, Commonwealth Cup On The Line, Weekend Sports Sked
The LA Rams’ defense sacked Cam Newton four times, and rookie running back Cam Akers rushed for 171 yards in a dominating 24-3 win over the New England Patriots last night. The win vaulted the Rams record to 9-4, while the Patriots fell to 6-7, damaging their fading playoff hopes.
This weekend, the Washington Football Team, riding a 3-game winning streak, heads west to take on the 49ers Sunday at 4:25. The Baltimore Ravens take on the 9-3 Cleveland Browns in the NFL Monday Night game.
In college football, the Commonwealth Cup is on the line when 4-6 Virginia Tech hosts 5-4 Virginia Saturday night at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg. Kickoff is set for 8pm. Meanwhile, the annual Army-Navy game is being played tomorrow at West Point for the first time in 77 years. WVU’s game with Oklahoma has been canceled, one of 10 games that has been canceled this weekend.
And, in college hoop, after their home opener with Robert Morris was canceled this week, West Virginia has added North Texas to their schedule for a 3pm tip this afternoon. The number-11 Mountaineers will host number-19 Richmond Sunday.
