EVANSTON, Ill. -- It looks as if No. 20 Nebraskas return to the Top 25 wont be a one-week affair.Tommy Armstrong Jr. threw for 246 yards and ran for a career-high 132 yards to lead the Cornhuskers to a 24 -13 victory over Northwestern on Saturday night in the Big Ten opener for both teams.Nebraska (4-0) remained unbeaten coming off a tight win over Oregon that vaulted the `Huskers into The Associated Press poll for the first time since December 2014.They lost two fumbles near the Northwestern goal line in the first half, but scored two touchdowns in the third quarter to stretch their lead from three to 11.We got two touchdowns early in the game, but theres no points on the board, coach Mike Riley said. So how are you going to react to that? Im really pleased with our reaction.The Wildcats (1-3) matched their loss total from last year when they went 10-3.Armstrong went 18 of 29, hitting Alonzo Moore with a 59-yarder in the first half and throwing a 4-yard touchdown strike to Cethan Carter that made it 17-7 early in the third after Aaron Williams intercepted Clayton Thorsons pass in the end zone.Terrell Newby ran for 69 yards and a touchdown . Moore had 72 yards receiving, and Nebraska finished with 556 yards in all.Thorson threw for 249 yards and had a 42-yard touchdown run. But he also threw two interceptions and was sacked four times, bringing his Big Ten-leading total to 15.Austin Carr had another big game for Northwestern with 109 yards receiving and a touchdown, giving him at least one scoring catch in three straight games. But a team that seemed to be getting on track with last weeks win over Duke after opening with losses to Western Michigan and Illinois State came up short against the resurgent Cornhuskers.These guys better figure it out pretty quick, coach Pat Fitzgerald said. They better walk out of the locker room. They better hug whoever they love. Theyd better go to bed and theyd better wake up and theyve got to get ready to get their rear ends coached off this week because thats whats gonna happen. Im not gonna sit here and Im not gonna take it and Im not gonna accept it. Theyd better buckle it up. Theyd better start hydrating right now because its not acceptable the way were playing.It starts and ends with me so Im gonna fix it.Nebraska drove 80 yards for a touchdown after Williams picked off Thorson in the end zone on the opening drive of the second half, with Carters 4-yard TD catch making it 17-7.Northwestern answered with a 24-yard TD pass from Thorson to Carr, but Jack Mitchells extra-point attempt hit the left upright. The Cornhuskers then went 79 yards with Jordan Westerkamp running it in from the 10 to boost the lead to 24-13.THE TAKEAWAYNEBRASKA: The Cornhuskers ultimately took charge after those early turnovers and continue to roll along in their second season under Mike Riley. Its a big improvement over last year, when they had to rally to finish 6-7.NORTHWESTERN: Coach Pat Fitzgerald has been criticizing his team for not finishing drives. Hell probably have more to say about it, considering Northwestern racked up 388 yards. But the defense had its difficulties, too.HOLD ONNebraska might have put this one away in the first half if not for the turnovers.On the games opening possession, Newby fumbled as he tried to lung across the goal line at the end of a 49-yard run with two defenders in pursuit. The ball popped out as he contorted himself in mid-air along the sideline and bounced through the end zone.Nebraska had the ball on the 2 late in the second quarter when a spinning Devine Ozigbo lost a fumble.POLL IMPLICATIONS:Nebraska certainly appeared to strengthen its standing in the poll with this win, taking control after a shaky first half.KICKING COMPETITIONWhile Fitzgerald said Jack Mitchell will continue to handle kickoffs, field-goal duties and extra points are now up for grabs. Mitchell will be competing this week with Matt Micucci after he booted a 27-yard field goal wide right and hit the upright on a missed PAT.UP NEXTNEBRASKA: The Cornhuskers return home to face Illinois, which handed them one of their most disappointing losses a year ago. That was on a last-second touchdown and extra point in Champaign.NORTHWESTERN: Northwestern goes on the road for the first time when it visits Iowa -- a 14-7 winner at Rutgers after a surprising loss to North Dakota State. Johnny Unitas Jersey . Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans.

After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. Donte Moncrief Jersey .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. NEW YORK -- Noah Syndergaard walked off the mound, back to the New York Mets dugout and straight into the tunnel to the clubhouse, avoiding any interaction with teammates.Baseballs just a really funny game, he said.Not the start the New York Mets were expecting from the pitcher they lined up to start in the NL wild-card game.Syndergaard, the only healthy starter left from among the Mets heralded young pitchers, was chased in the fourth inning after allowing five runs, and the Mets wild-card run was slowed with a 7-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.It stings a little bit because the last two weeks every win is critical, Syndergaard said. A disappointment that I didnt go out there and get the job done.He started with a 1-2-3 opening inning, then retired Matt Kemp on a flyout with his first pitch of the second. But it turned into a 35-pitch inning that included a pair of walks and RBI singles. Freddie Freeman led off the third with an opposite-field homer to left and reached down to slice an opposite-field, two-run double in the fourth for a 5-0 lead.Obviously he lost the feel, he lost his rhythm, Mets manager Terry Collins said. Youre looking at 11 pitches, he had four outs, and the next thing you know he couldnt throw the ball over the plate.New York had won 11 of its previous 14 games. It leads the NL wild-card race by one game over San Francisco and St. Louis.If theres any game that weve played in a long time that demonstrates that theres no guarantees and no sure things in baseball, tonights the game, Collins said.Aaron Blair won for the first time in 13 major league starts, Freeman had four hits for the NL-worst Braves and rookie Dansby Swanson had three hits and three RBI.Pitching on five days rest rather than four, partly because he felts stiffness following his previous outing, Syndergaard (13-9) allowed eight hits and three walks in 3 2/3 innings, and Atlanta fouled off 26 of his 99 pitches. He is set for two more regular-season starts before the wild-carrd game on Oct.dddddddddddd 5 -- if the Mets get there.Youre going to go into the playoffs looking at Noah Syndergaard as the guy that hes got to pitch a big game, Collins said. Hes the guy youre going to turn to.Aaron Blair (1-6) won for the first time in 13 big league starts. He did not allow a hit until the fourth, when Curtis Granderson singled and Pacific Coast League batting champion T.J. Rivera hit his third home run this month.James Loney added an RBI double in the ninth on a ball that bounced past center fielder Ender Inciarte, who tried for backhand snag as he slid.Loney and Granderson had three hits each for the Mets, who have lost four straight home games against the Braves.They came out swinging, Syndergaard said. Theyre a pesky team right there, and they can really do some damage.TAKING OFFSwanson swiped the 47th stolen base of the season off Syndergaard; Milwaukees Jimmy Nelson is second in the big leagues with 27 allowed.TAKE A SEATNew York benched outfielder Jay Bruce from the starting lineup for the second straight game, hoping the mental break will spark an end to his slump. Bruce pinch hit in the ninth inning and flied out, leaving him in a 3-for-34 slide. He is hitting .180 with four homers and 11 RBI in 39 games since the Mets acquired him from Cincinnati.GRANDY-MANGranderson was given the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, presented annually by the Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity to the major leaguer best exemplifying Gehrigs giving character.TRAINERS ROOMMets: LHP Steven Matz (shoulder tightness) is to throw a bullpen Wednesday and could rejoin the rotation later this week. He has been sidelined since Aug. 14.UP NEXTRHP Robert Gsellman (2-1) is to start for the Mets on Tuesday and Julio Teheran (5-10) for the Braves. Gsellman made hit big league debut Aug. 23 and allowed four runs over five innings at Atlanta on Sept. 9.
