     CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Bruce Anderson and Lance Dunn combined for more than 300 yards rushing and four touchdowns, and North Dakota State rolled to a 40-13 win over Eastern Washington in a matchup of FCS powers on Saturday.
 
     Anderson had 160 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries and Dunn picked up 148 yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries. Easton Stick threw for 157 yards while the Bison defense stymied the Eagles.
 
     Gage Gubrud, who set 18 Eastern Washington records and three FCS marks in passing for more than 5,000 yards last year, was 10 for 30 for 134 yards and two interceptions. The Eagles finished with 204 yards on offense and had just 11 first downs. The Bison had 31 first downs and held the ball for almost 43 minutes.
 
     It was North Dakota's first trip to EWU since falling 38-31 in overtime in the FCS playoffs in 2010. Eastern went on to win the national championship but the Bison won the next five. Last year, when NDSU beat the Eagles 50-44 early in the season, both teams lost in the semifinals.
 
     Taking a 19-10 lead at the half, the Bison put the game away with three straight touchdown drives for a 40-13 lead with 12:32 to play.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Keaton Studsrud was 22-of-31 passing for 273 yards with and two scores and Brady Oliveira ran for 164 yards to lead North Dakota past Missouri State 34-0 on Saturday.
 
     With a 3-0 lead after the first quarter, Studsrud threw a 13-yard score to Noah Wanzek and followed that up with a 3-yard pass to Wanzek to cap a seven-play, 80-yard drive for a 17-0 lead.
 
     On Missouri State's next drive, Ray Haas picked off Peyton Husling at Missouri State's 32-yard line. John Santiago ran 19 yards for a touchdown with 4:06 remaining before halftime.
 
     North Dakota (1-1) outgained the Bears 526-211 and held the ball for more than 36 minutes. Wanzek had career highs with 117 yards receiving and seven catches.
 
     Huslig finished with 132 yards passing for Missouri State (0-2).
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Eric Hosmer drove in the go-ahead run with his third hit in a three-run eighth inning, helping the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 5-2 on Saturday night.
 
     Lorenzo Cain led off the eighth with a single against Ryan Pressly (2-3), and Melky Cabrera walked. Hosmer's single off Buddy Boshers scored pinch-runner Terrance Gore.
 
     Salvador Perez had an RBI double and Alcides Escobar a sacrifice fly to cap the inning.
 
     Mike Minor (6-6) got the win with 1 2/3 scoreless innings. Brandon Maurer earned his second save in three chances since the Royals acquired him in a July 24 trade with San Diego.

     True freshman J.K. Dobbins again was a bright spot for the Buckeyes, rushing for 72 yards and a touchdown in his second collegiate start. But quarterback J.T. Barrett couldn't hit the big passes when he desperately needed them to extend drives.

He ran for 154 yards and two touchdowns and completed 14 of his 18 passes for 128 yards and a score. Alabama outgained Fresno State 305 yards to 58 on the ground and didn't allow a touchdown until Chason Virgil's 26-yard pass to Derrion Grim with just over six minutes left.
 
     - Kelly Bryant ran for two touchdowns and defensive end Austin Bryant had four of third-ranked Clemson's 11 sacks in a 14-6 victory over No. 13 Auburn. Austin Byrant sacked Jarrett Stidham on Auburn's final two plays and helped Clemson hold the Tigers to 117 yards.
 
     - Trace McSorley threw for three touchdowns and fourth-ranked Penn State avenged last year's loss at Pittsburgh by slamming the Panthers, 33-14. Mike Gesicki had two touchdown receptions, and Saquon Barkley added a 46-yard catch-and-run for a TD while gaining 88 yards on the ground.

     - Ty Isaac ran for a career-high 133 yards and Wilton Speight threw for 221 yards and two touchdowns in No. 8 Michigan's 36-14 win over Cincinnati. The Wolverines led by three early in the second half and were hearing boos at Ann Arbor before scoring 19 straight points.

     - Georgia won a top-25 matchup on the road as Rodrigo Blankenship kicked a 30-yard field goal with 3:39 remaining to give the 15th-ranked Bulldogs a 20-19 decision over No. 24 Notre Dame. Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy led a swarming Georgia defense that stopped the Irish on downs once and caused quarterback Brandon Wimbush to lose two fumbles, one coming with 1:27 remaining.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Milwaukee Brewers have picked up another game on the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central standings, which also was good news for the St. Louis Cardinals.
 
     The Brewers and Cardinals are within three games of first place after leadoff hitter Hernan Perez belted a two-run homer and collected five RBIs in Milwaukee's 15-2 thrashing of the Cubs. Travis Shaw and Orlando Arcia hit two-run doubles while Milwaukee was scoring eight times in the third inning off Mike Montgomery and Justin Grimm. Perez added a two-run blast in the fifth, one inning before his two-run single put the Brewers ahead 14-0.
 
     Chase Anderson tossed one-hit ball over five shutout innings and got into the scoring mix with two hits and two RBIs.
 
     The Brewers won shortly after announcing that ace Jimmy Nelson will miss the rest of the season. Nelson has a strained right rotator cuff and a partial anterior labrum tear after diving to a base during Friday's 2-0 win over the Cubs.
 
     The Cardinals made the most of four hits in a 4-3 win over the Pirates. Randal Grichuk broke a 3-3 deadlock with an RBI grounder in the eighth, an inning after Matt Carpenter tied it with a solo homer. Yadier Molina cracked a two-run shot in the Redbirds' eighth win in 10 games.
 
     Elsewhere in the majors:
 
     - The Indians' team-record winning streak is up to 17 games after Jay Bruce singled home the go-ahead run and Francisco Lindor homered in a 4-2 win against the Orioles. Carlos Santana was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored for Cleveland, which has outscored its opponents 118-30 while compiling the majors' longest winning streak since the 2002 Athletics took 20 straight in 2002.
 
     - Chris Sale struck out eight while yielding six hits over six innings of the Red Sox's 9-0 shutout of the Rays. Dustin Pedroia opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first before Mitch Moreland drove in three runs to help Chris Sale get his 16th win. The rout keeps the AL East-leading Bosox 4 1/2 games ahead of the second-place New York Yankees.
 
     - Luis Severino combined with two relievers on a one-hitter and the Yankees scored twice in the ninth to beat the Rangers, 3-1. Tyler Austin singled home the tiebreaking run and Chase Headley finished with two RBIs to help the Bombers bounce back from Friday's lopsided loss. Severino gave up the Rangers' lone hit over seven innings and Aroldis Chapman notched his first save since returning to the closer's role.
 
     - The Astros' seven-game winning streak is over after a doubleheader loss to the Athletics. Daniel Gossett and two relievers combined on a five-hitter in the Athletics' 11-1 laugher over the Astros in the opener. Matt Chapman, Khris Davis and Boog Powell drove in two runs apiece to back Gossett, who scattered five hits over six innings. The A's kept it up in the nightcap as Powell collected three RBIs and Chad Pinder drove in four to lead an 11-4 assault of Houston in Game 2.
 
     - Rhys Hoskins homered and later walked with the bases loaded to give the Phillies a 5-1 lead in the fourth inning of a 5-4 win at Washington. Michael A. Taylor's two-run homer and RBI single got the Nationals within a run before their five-game winning streak ended. The loss, coupled with Miami's loss in Atlanta, leaves the Nats with a magic number of two for clinching their second straight NL East title.
 
     - The Padres erupted for six runs in the ninth to stun the Diamondbacks' 8-7. Wil Myers sparked the comeback with his second two-run homer of the night and Carlos Asuaje put San Diego ahead with a two-run single. David Peralta had three RBIs for the Diamondbacks, who have dropped two straight since a team-record 13-game winning streak.
 
     - Ender Inciarte worked out a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth to complete the Braves' 6-5 triumph over the Marlins. Giancarlo Stanton launched his major league-leading 54th home run while Miami was building a 4-0 lead.
 
     - Eric Hosmer delivered a go-ahead single as the Royals scored three runs in the eighth to beat Minnesota, 5-2. Alex Gordon tied it with a seventh-inning blast after Eduardo Escobar and Byron Buxton homered for the Twins.
 
     - Minnesota continues to sit on a two-game lead over the Angels for the second AL wild-card spot following the Mariners' 8-1 win over Los Angeles. Nelson Cruz ripped a three-run homer and Mitch Haniger went 3-for-4 with a solo shot and three runs scored. Andrew Albers was sharp over six shutout innings, giving up four hits and a walk with four strikeouts.
 
     - Kevin Pillar was 4-for-4 with a tiebreaking solo homer and two ribbies in the Blue Jays' 5-4 downing of the Tigers. Brett Anderson surrendered a two-run homer to Miguel Cabrera in the first inning before tossing shutout ball over his final five frames.
 
     - Kevin Plawecki slammed a go-ahead, two-run homer and the Mets picked up their third straight win by topping the Reds, 6-1. Rafael Montero is 4-1 with a 3.26 ERA in his last five starts after holding Cincinnati to one run and four hits in five innings.
 
     - Jose Abreu hit one of the White Sox's six home runs and was 4-for-5 with three RBIs and three runs scored in a 13-1 romp over the Giants. Tim Anderson, Yolmer Sanchez, Avisail Garcia, Yoan Moncada and Nicky Delmonico also went deep for the Chisox.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Sloane Stephens has become the second unseeded woman to win the U.S. Open since the Open era began in 1968. Kim Clijsters was the first, in 2009.
 
     The 83rd-ranked Stephens showed no jitters in posting a 6-3, 6-0 rout of 15th seed Madison Keys on Saturday. Stephens played with complete confidence two days after grinding out a three-sets win over Venus Williams.
 
     The title comes eight months after Stephens underwent foot surgery that dropped her in the rankings. She didn't return to tournament play until Wimbledon and dropped her first two matches before going 15-2 since.
 
     Stephens had just six unforced errors compared to 30 for Keys, her longtime friend.
 
     Today's men's final has top seed Rafael Nadal against South African Kevin Anderson. Nadal is seeking his 16th Grand Slam crown and third at the U.S. Open. Anderson is competing in his first major final.

     Dale Earnhardt Jr was officially eliminated from the playoffs with a 13th-place finish.

     The Rams say they intend to continue contract talks with Donald while he is in uniform.
 
     Also in the NFL:
 
     - The Raiders have placed long-time kicker Sebastian Janikowski on injured reserve with an injured back and promoted Giorgio Tavecchio to the active roster. The Raiders had signed Tavecchio on Friday as insurance and brought him to Tennessee in case he needed to be activated.
