Bears put White on injured reserve Bears put White on injured reserve
- October 06, 2016

White's injury is another disappointing chapter in what is becoming dangerously close to a devastating first-round miss by Ryan Pace. He has 19 catches for 187 yards and no touchdowns.

- October 04, 2016

They've dominated their opponents all year, they were the first to capture a postseason berth, and they're the only major league franchise to surpass the 100-win plateau and they seem. Jake Arrieta, over his past 16 starts (4.44 ERA) really doesn't look like the guy who could carry a team to a World Series victory.

Reed carries Spieth to beat Europe's top duo Reed carries Spieth to beat Europe's top duo
- October 03, 2016

Pieters sealed the 3-and-1 win with a short birdie putt. Europe led for 10 straight holes until a bogey on the 12th squared the match, and the Americans poured it on. It was advantage Europe when Reed missed the green and Garcia found the putting surface, but the American pair got up and down and Garcia - who had missed from similar distance on the 11th - had to hole from two feet for a half.

- October 03, 2016

Ohio State's leader finished the first half with 173 yards on 16-of-23 passing, all four Buckeye touchdowns courtesy of passing scores from Barrett.
