Italy pushed on for an equalising goal after going behind and they were rewarded when Sergio Ramos fouled Éder in the penalty area.

LSU running back Leonard Fournette racked up 101 yards on 16 carries, but Auburn did a great job of keeping the LSU passing game in check. A costly mishandling of the ball by Etling resulted in a fumble and cost LSU the ball at the Auburn 31 when trailing 15-13.

For Wales, it was a point that could have been three and a result that came at a cost. Chris Coleman says Wales have much to improve on after drawing with Austria in their World Cup qualifier. 'It is something different but it just shows what Gareth has got in the locker.

Before they were the Nationals , they were the Montreal Expos, a team that never made it to the World Series in five decades of play. "The answer to one of these is no and the answer to the other is yes", he said .

Assistant offensive line coach Eric Mateos was promoted to tight ends coach, replacing Ensminger.

The winningest driver in Dover International Speedway history, Johnson entered a first-round elimination race fifth in the standings and seemed a lock to advance.

Clarke made a decision to leave him on the sidelines, but kept faith with Belgium rookie Thomas Pieters and paired him with European talisman Rory McIlroy for their duel with Johnson and Kuchar.

Even a full clearing of the slate-benching Gabbert, releasing Kaepernick, plucking a young quarterback like Kevin Hogan or Aaron Murray off another team's practice squad-at least takes a step toward the future. Ponder, working primarily with the scout team, has been more consistent than Kaepernick in practices, a source said. While we haven't gotten a firm look at Kaepernick in the new offense, consider the worst-case scenario: he throws interceptions and the 49ers lose? "So I don't know ...
