     YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Cam Pedersen kicked a game-winning 36-yard field goal in overtime to give North Dakota State a 27-24 win over Youngstown State in a battle of top-ranked Football Championship Subdivision teams Saturday.
 
     The victory gives the Bison (6-0, 3-0 Missouri Valley) 12 straight road wins and snapped the Penguins 11-game home win streak.
 
     Youngstown State's Tevin McCaster capped a 9-play, 90-yard drive with a 1-yard run with 1:23 left to knot the score at 24-24 and force overtime, but the Penguins missed a 39-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime.
 
     The Penguins (3-3, 1-2) took a 10-0 lead after one quarter, but Easton Stick brought the Bison right back, hitting RJ Urzendowski with a 16-yard strike and leading a 13-play, 80-yard drive capped by Pedersen's 19-yard field goal that made it 10-10 at halftime.
 
     Stick finished 11 of 20 for 113 yards and two TDs, adding an 80-yard touchdown run of his own.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Freshman quarterback Gresch Jensen threw for 423 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score as the Montana Grizzlies beat North Dakota 41-17 in a Big Sky Conference football game Saturday.
 
     The Grizzlies withstood three first-half turnovers by Jensen to improve to 5-2, including a 3-1 mark in the Big Sky. They led for good when Jensen hit Samori Toure for 31 yards on a screen play at 9:17 of the first quarter.
 
     Brandon Purdy added the first of his two field goals early in the second quarter to put Montana up 10-0, and Jensen answered a North Dakota field goal with a 55-yard scoring pass to Keenan Curran. That made it 17-3, and Purdy's 23-yard field goal just before halftime put the Grizzlies up 20-3.
 
     The Fighting Hawks (2-5, 1-3) replaced starting quarterback Brad Heidlebaugh with Andrew Zimmerman at halftime but could not close. Montana's defense held North Dakota running back John Santiago to 32 yards on 14 carries.
 
     The Fighting Hawks didn't find the end zone until James Johannesson's 56-yard run with 47 seconds left in the third quarter. Zimmerman later hit Stetson Carr for 62 yards and a touchdown with 3:24 left in the game.
 
     Montana started the second half with touchdowns 79 seconds apart. A 2-yard run by Alijah Lee was set up by Curran receptions covering 24 and 28 yards. Then a 64-yard catch and run by Jerry Louis-McGee led to Jensen's scoring run, covering 15 yards at the 11:19 mark. That made it 34-3.
 
     Jensen, who was 22 of 35 passing with two interceptions, threw a 29-yarder to Curran for Montana's final touchdown. Montana led 41-10 with 11:19 left in the game. Curran had five catches for 151 yards.
 
     Lee rushed for 57 yards for Montana. Johannesson ran for 93 yards on just seven carries for the Fighting Hawks.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Alexander Wennberg scored 47 seconds into overtime and the Columbus Blue Jackets rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat the Minnesota Wild 5-4 on Saturday night.
 
     Zach Werenski, David Savard, Cam Atkinson and Josh Anderson also scored for the Blue Jackets, winners of three straight.
 
     Tyler Ennis scored two power-play goals for Minnesota, which got 30 saves from Devan Dubnyk. Eric Staal and Landon Ferraro also scored.
 
     One of the last two teams to have its home opener, Minnesota is 14-0-3 all-time in its first game of the season at Xcel Energy Center. Philadelphia also played its first home game Saturday.
 
     In the extra time, Artemi Panarin cut to the slot and his shot was stopped by Dubnyk. However, the rebound went off the chest of Wennberg, off his stick and into the Minnesota net. The goal was upheld by video review.
 
     Trailing 4-2 early in the third, Atkinson scored on a rebound and the Blue Jackets kept up the pressure and were rewarded when Anderson redirected a slapshot from Savard past Dubnyk with 3:37 left in regulation.
 
     Ennis scored 1:42 into the third when a shot from Mikko Koivu deflected off Ennis' skate. It is the seventh career multigoal game for Ennis and first since Jan. 18, 2015.
 
     Ferraro's individual effort gave Minnesota a 3-1 lead five minutes into the second.
 
     Sergei Bobrovsky, who'd allowed just two goals in his first three starts for Columbus, thought he stopped Ferraro's wrist shot from the left circle, but the puck trickled through the netminder's pads. Ferraro, who hadn't played in the NHL since April 9, 2016, was knocked down while following his shot, but still reached in to swat the puck the final few inches.
 
     Ferraro, Zack Mitchell and Christoph Bertschy were recalled Friday from AHL Iowa to replace three forwards Minnesota lost to injury in Thursday's 5-2 win at Chicago. Mitchell assisted on Ferraro's goal for his first NHL point.
 
     Charlie Coyle (right fibula fracture) is expected to miss six to eight weeks, Nino Niederreiter (high left ankle sprain) is out at least three weeks and Marcus Foligno (left facial fracture) is expected to be out a week.
 
     The Wild are also without forwards Mikael Granlund (groin) and Zach Parise (undisclosed injury). Granlund skated with the team Saturday morning; Parise is expected back for next weekend's back-to-back games in Winnipeg and Calgary.
 
     Scoring in his third straight game, Staal completed a textbook give-and-go with Chris Stewart for a 1-0 Wild lead at 15:50 of the first, but a defensive breakdown left Werenski alone in the left circle for an easy game-tying goal 35 seconds later.
 
     Ennis scored early in the second and Savard ripped a slapshot past Dubnyk to get the Blue Jackets within 3-2 later in the period.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

     HOUSTON (AP) - Another great starting pitching performance led to another 2-1 victory as the Houston Astros grabbed a two-games-to-none lead in the American League Championship Series.
 
     Justin Verlander went the distance on a five-hitter and Carlos Correa laced an RBI double with one out in the bottom of the ninth as the Astros pulled out a 2-1 verdict over the New York Yankees. Verlander had a playoff career-high 13 strikeouts in tossing the second complete game in an ALCS since 2005. He blanked the Yankees following Todd Frazier's game-tying double in the fifth inning.
 
     Verlander improved to 3-0 in this postseason and 8-0 since being acquired from the Tigers at the Aug. 31 trade deadline. But he was staring at a possible no-decision until the Astros rallied off Aroldis Chapman.
 
     Jose Altuve sparked the rally with a one-out single and sprinted home from first on Correa's two-bagger. The relay throw was in plenty of time to get Altuve, but catcher Gary Sanchez misplayed the short-hop.
 
     Altuve is hitting .565 in the postseason, going 13-for-23.
 
     Correa also homered for the Astros, who have allowed just 10 hits in the series.
 
     Verlander's gem came one day after Dallas Keuchel blanked the Yanks over seven innings.
 
     Game 3 is Monday in the Bronx, where CC Sabathia will try to get the Yankees back in the series. Charlie Morton will start for the Astros.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have the upper hand in the National League Championship Series after taking the opener.
 
     The Dodgers used a mix of timely hitting and strong pitching in a 5-2 win over the Cubs in Los Angeles.
 
     The big hits came from Yasiel Puig and Chris Taylor. The Cubs led 2-0 until Puig lined an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth. Puig also hit a solo homer in the seventh, one inning after Taylor's solo blast off Hector Rondon put the Dodgers ahead.
 
     Charlie Culberson tied the game with a sacrifice fly and had one of the Dodgers' eight hits. Culberson was put on the active roster in place of shortstop Corey Seager, who will miss the series because of a back injury.
 
     L.A. received four perfect innings of relief from its bullpen after Clayton Kershaw worked the first five frames. Kershaw surrendered four hits, including Albert Almora's two-run homer in the fourth inning.
 
     Winning pitcher Kenta Maeda worked one inning of scoreless relief. Kenley Jansen struck out all four hitters he faced to notch the save.
 
     The series stays in Los Angeles for Game 2 on Sunday. Rich Hill will start for Los Angeles against Jon Lester.

     UNDATED (AP) - Washington and Auburn became the third and fourth top-10 football team to lose this weekend.
 
     The fifth-ranked Huskies were beaten in Tempe as Manny Wilkins completed 29 of 41 passes for 245 yards to help Arizona State pull off a 13-7 stunner over Washington.
 
     The Huskies were shut out until the fourth quarter after entering the game averaging 43 points. Van Soderberg missed field goals of 27 and 21 yards as Washington dropped to 6-1.
 
     The Sun Devils have beaten the Huskies seven straight times and haven't lost to them in Tempe since 2001.
 
     Connor Culp kicked clutch field goals of 42 and 36 yards inside the final three minutes to help LSU rally from a 20-point, first-half deficit in a 27-23 triumph over No. 10 Auburn.
 
     D.J. Chark returned a punt 75 yards for a touchdown as the Tigers stopped Auburn's four-game winning streak. Russell Gage made a diving 14-yard scoring reception and had a 70-yard run that set up another LSU touchdown.
 
     Kerryon Johnson rushed for 156 yards and a short TD for Auburn, which was shut out in the second half.
 
     The losses by the Tigers and Huskies came on the heels of setbacks by second-ranked Clemson and No. 8 Washington State on Friday.

     - Oklahoma coughed up a 20-point lead before Baker Mayfield threw 59 yards to Mark Andrews for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter to push the 12th-ranked Sooners past Texas, 29-24. Mayfield's second TD throw of more than 50 yards came 68 seconds after freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger ran eight yards to give the Longhorns their first lead after trailing 20-0 in the first half.
 
     - Sam Darnold threw for 258 yards and led No. 13 Southern California on three long scoring drives in the second half before completing a 28-27 win over Utah.

     PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia Flyers fans had to wait four games before the team played its home opener. It turns out, the wait was worth it as the Flyers blasted one of their arch-rivals.
 
     Claude Giroux, Scott Laughton and Sean Couturier each scored twice as Philly rolled to an 8-2 pounding of the Washington Capitals. The trio accounted for nine points, with Giroux collecting two assists and Couturier setting up a goal.
