My primary calling is to bring God glory…to reveal Him in such a way that people see Jesus in me and want to know Him for themselves.

    FARGO, ND (NDSU) - No. 1-ranked North Dakota State (6-0, 2-0 MVFC) is the lone remaining unbeaten team among the FCS playoff conferences heading into this week's Trees Bowl game. NDSU will play Missouri State (1-4, 1-1 MVFC) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome. It is also the annual Code Green game.

     MLB-ALCS

     NEW YORK (AP) - The American League Championship Series between the Astros and the Yankees resumes in New York tonight, a day after Game 4 was postponed because of a rainy forecast.

     Zack Greinke will start for Houston against Masahiro Tanaka in a rematch of Game 1, a 7-0 victory by the Yankees. In that game Tanaka needed just 68 pitches to cover six innings, improving to 5-2 with a 1.32 ERA in the postseason.

     The Astros also announced that Justin Verlander will start Game 5. He threw two-run ball into the seventh inning in a 3-2, 11-inning victory in Game 2 on Sunday. New York plans to counter Verlander with James Paxton. The left-hander was pulled after allowing a run over 2 1/3 rocky innings in Game 2.

     Houston leads the series two games to one.

     NFL-CHIEFS-BRONCOS

     DENVER (AP) - The Denver Broncos host the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL's Thursday night game. The Broncos are going for their third straight victory after an 0-4 start and the Chiefs looking to snap a two-game losing streak following their 4-0 start.

     Denver is looking to capitalize on the Chiefs' porous run defense that's allowing 190 yards a game over the past month. The Broncos are the only team that sports two running backs each with at least 400 scrimmage yards. Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay have accounted for 973 yards so far.

     The Chiefs are down several starters as they face the division rival on short rest. Defensive back Kendall Fuller was ruled out after breaking his thumb in last week's loss to Houston, defensive tackle Chris Jones and left tackle Eric Fisher have core muscle injuries, left guard Andrew Wylie is out with an ankle injury and wide receiver Sammy Watkins will miss his second consecutive game with a hamstring injury.

     MLB-INDIANS-PEREZ SURGERY

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Indians catcher Roberto Perez had arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs in his right ankle. The team said Perez underwent the procedure today in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The 30-year-old Perez is expected to be fully recovered by spring training in February.

     Perez had a career-best season for the Indians, who made him their full-time starter after trading All-Star Yan Gomes to the Washington Nationals in November. Perez batted .239 with 24 homers and 63 RBIs in 119 games. He entered the season with just 21 homers.

     He also played at a Gold Glove level behind the plate, not allowing a passed ball. Perez threw out a league-high 41 percent of would-be base stealers while handling one of baseball's best pitching staffs.

     Only Bill Dicky (1931), Al Todd (1937) and Johnny Bench (1975) caught more games than Perez without committing a passed ball.

     NBA-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Bradley Beal has agreed on a two-year extension worth nearly $72 million with Washington, a major victory for the Wizards and a move that will keep the All-Star guard out of free agency for at least the next three summers. The agreement was confirmed today by Beal's agent, Mark Bartelstein. ESPN first reported the details of the extension.

     Beal still had two years left on his existing contract. The extension kicks in for the 2021-22 season, has a player option for the following year and means that Beal won't be part of what has been shaping up to be an NBA free-
agent extravaganza in the summer of 2021.

     The Wizards were willing to give Beal a three-year extension that would have been worth about $111 million over three years. Beal went the two-year route and that protects his future options - he could opt out of the deal in the summer of 2022, coinciding with his 10th year in the league. The 10-year milestone is significant: By having that many years of service, Beal would be eligible to sign a new deal worth in excess of $250 million over the next five seasons.

     - The Toronto Raptors have signed former Cornell star Matt Morgan after waiving forward Sagaba Konate. Morgan was a member of the Raptors' team at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. He averaged 4.3 points in 13.8 minutes in four appearances. Morgan played guard the past four seasons at Cornell University, graduating as the Ivy League school's career-leader scorer. He averaged 20.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists at Cornell.

     - An emotional Michael Jordan unveiled the first of two medical clinics he and his family funded in Charlotte, North Carolina that will provide care to underprivileged members of the community.

The clinic, located in a lower-income section of the city, will provide vital access to primary and preventive care to individuals in the community, including those who are uninsured or underinsured.

     NHL-NEWS

     LAS VEGAS (AP) - Vegas Golden Knights forward Valentin Zykov was suspended Thursday for 20 games without pay for a violation of the NHL's performance-enhancing substances program, the league said. The suspension is accompanied by a referral to the league's program for Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health for evaluation and possible treatment. The league said it would have no further comment. The Knights said the franchise respects the league's decision.

     In a statement, Zykov said he would work during the suspension to ensure he would be ready to contribute when he returns. The 24-year-old is the second Knights player to be suspended due to a positive test for a performance-enhancing substance. Defenseman Nate Schmidt was suspended 20 games prior to the start of last season.
