Wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying asleep.
Wrapped in a servant's towel, washing feet.

Wrapped in linen burial cloth, dead in sin.
Wrapped in risen glory, coming again.

     TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Easton Stick passed for 191 yards and four touchdowns before sitting out the fourth quarter and North Dakota State rolled to a 52-0 victory over Indiana State on Saturday.
     Stick hooked up with Connor Wentz for first- and second-quarter scores and found Dallas Freeman and Ben Ellefson for TDs in the third to put the Bison up 45-0. Stick came into the game with a 188.5 quarterback rating, second in the FCS.
     Lance Dunn carried it 16 times for 74 yards and two scores. Adam Cofield's first career TD, an 11-yard run in the fourth, capped the scoring for NDSU (5-0, 2-0 Missouri Valley Conference), which has won an FCS-best 11 straight regular-season road games.
     The Bison picked off three passes and recovered three fumbles.
     Lemonte Booker rushed for 104 yards on 10 carries for the Sycamores (0-5, 0-2), who played their first home game in 37 days.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Keaton Studsrud threw for 248 yards and a touchdown, Travis Toivonen ran for two scores, and North Dakota edged out Northern Colorado 48-38 on Saturday to end a three-game skid before a Homecoming crowd.
     The lead changed seven times before Reid Taubenheim kicked a go-ahead field goal early in the fourth quarter after the Bears made a goal-line stand. Toivonen capped the scoring on a 5-yard reverse.
     North Dakota (2-4, 1-2 Big Sky) held the Bears to 18 yards rushing, while churning out 314 yards on the ground, led by Brady Olivera's 107 yards on 17 carries and Studsrud's 97 on 10.
     Down 28-7 after James Johannesson's 4-yard TD run, the Bears rallied with 17 straight points. After a field goal, Khairi Bailey returned a fumble 25 yards for a score after Luke Nelson sacked Studsrud. Torrey Hunt recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, and three plays later Anthony Davis scored on a 1-yard run to close to 28-24 at halftime.
     Trae Riek's 10-yard TD run put the Bears up 31-28 in the third quarter, but the Fighting Hawks tied it with a field goal. John Santiago's 2-yard TD run put North Dakota up 38-31, but the Bears tied it on third-and-goal with Conor Regan's 9-yard TD pass to Hakeem Deggs on the ensuing drive.
     Jacob Knipp and Regan combined for 313 yards passing with two interceptions for Northern Colorado (2-3, 1-2).

     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Jaccob Slavin scored in the shootout and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Minnesota Wild 5-4 on Saturday night.
     Victor Rask scored late in regulation and Sebastian Aho had two key assists while Noah Hanifin, Joakim Nordstrom and Derek Ryan also scored to help Carolina win its opener.
     Mikko Koivu sent it to overtime by scoring in the final second of regulation. Jason Zucker, former Carolina captain Eric Staal and Chris Stewart also scored for the Wild.
     Scott Darling made 23 saves in his debut as a full-time starter in the NHL and his first game with the Hurricanes, who traded for him during the offseason and then signed him to a four-year contract.
     Slavin beat a sprawled-out Alex Stalock high with a backhand in the third round of the shootout, and Darling got a piece of Staal's shot to end it.
     It appeared as if Aho and Rask had made him a winner in dramatic fashion, with Rask taking a slick feed from the second-year forward and beating Stalock with a wrist shot with 1:34 left in regulation.
     But Koivu whacked a loose puck past Darling amid a pile-up in front of the net just before the horn sounded, and an official review determined that Matt Dumba did not interfere with the Carolina goalie during the scrum.
     Stalock stopped 38 shots for the Wild, who led 3-1 late in the second period after killing an 88-second, 5-on-3 disadvantage. Staal made it a two-goal game by shaking free near the blue line, skating in on Darling and beating him with a wrist shot with 6:17 left.
     Then came Carolina's rally: Ryan pulled the Hurricanes within a goal by redirecting a shot by Justin Williams with 3:40 left in the second, and Hanifin tied it at 3 after taking a pretty feed from Aho and slipping the puck past Stalock with 14:45 left in the third.
     This is a season of promise for both teams, with Carolina aggressively adding players during the offseason in its bid to end the league's longest active playoff drought (eight years) and Minnesota confident that it has kept its window for Stanley Cup contention open after spending almost exactly to the $75 million salary cap.
     Since the lockout that wiped out the 2004-05 season, the Hurricanes have not made the playoffs in any season in which they lost their first game at PNC Arena.

     WASHINGTON (AP) - Things were looking bleak for the Washington Nationals and their dormant offense until Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman took over.
     Harper hit a tying two-run homer in the eighth inning and Zimmerman tacked on a three-run shot moments later to lift the Washington Nationals to a 6-3 comeback victory over the defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs, evening their NL Division Series at a game apiece.
     The Nationals were in serious danger of falling behind 2-0 in the series, entering the eighth trailing 3-1 after dropping Game 1 by a 3-0 score. But after accumulating four hits through the first 16 innings of the postseason, NL East champion Washington broke out with five runs and four hits, led by 2015 NL MVP Harper and longtime face of the franchise Zimmerman.
     The NLDS moves to Wrigley Field for Game 3 on Monday. The Cubs will have Jose Quintana on the mound and the Nationals counter with two-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, who was pushed back in the rotation because of an injured right hamstring.
     Jon Lester held Washington to just one run and two hits through six innings, but Cubs manager Joe Maddon turned to his bullpen and everything changed.

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - Yasiel Puig had three hits and drove in two runs, Austin Barnes added a key two-run double and the Los Angeles Dodgers used another relentless offensive performance to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-5 on Saturday night for a 2-0 lead in their NL Division Series.
     Logan Forsythe had three hits and Kenley Jansen earned a flawless five-out save for the 104-win Dodgers, who have made their mediocre pitching irrelevant by pounding out 17 runs and 24 hits in the first two games against their NL West rival.
     Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Brandon Drury added a pinch-hit, three-run shot in the seventh, but the Diamondbacks are on the brink of elimination after Robbie Ray and reliever Jimmie Sherfy couldn't contain the Dodgers' lineup.
     Game 3 is Monday at Chase Field.

     UNDATED (AP) - Kyle Kempt passed for 343 yards and three touchdowns, including a 25-yarder to Allen Lazard that put Iowa State ahead with 2:19 left in the fourth quarter and Joel Lanning made plays on offense and defense to lead the Cyclones to a stunning 38-31 upset of No. 3 Oklahoma. The loss snapped Oklahoma's nation-leading 14-game win streak and the Sooners' 18-game winning streak against the Cyclones that dated to 1990. It was just Iowa State's second victory against Oklahoma since 1961, and the Cyclones did it without their starting quarterback.
     In other Top-25 games:
     - Damien Harris ran for 124 yards and a touchdown, and Jalen Hurts had a touchdown pass and ran for another score to help top-ranked Alabama remain undefeated with a 27-19 win over Texas A&M. Alabama had rolled past Vanderbilt and Mississippi by a combined score of 125-3 over the last two weeks, but got much more of a test from the young Aggies.
     - Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant threw for 200 yards and a touchdown before leaving with an ankle injury as the second-ranked Tigers defeated Wake Forest 28-14. There was no immediate word on the severity of Bryant's injury. He left the game in the third quarter after Travis Etienne's 1-yard touchdown run put Clemson ahead 21-0. Clemson improved to 6-0 and beat the Demon Deacons for a ninth straight time.
     - Trace McSorley threw for 245 yards and a touchdown, Saquon Barkley ran for two scores in the second half, and No. 4 Penn State beat Northwestern 31-7. McSorley completed 25 of 34 passes. He threw a 10-yard touchdown to backup quarterback Tommy Stevens in the second quarter and added a 5-yard TD run in the fourth.
     - Nick Chubb ran for two touchdowns and 138 yards, and fifth-ranked Georgia routed Vanderbilt 45-14 despite missing three players from the Bulldogs' stingy defense. The 6-0 Bulldogs piled up 423 yards as they continued their best start since 2012 when they reached the SEC championship. They also avenged a 17-16 loss to Vanderbilt last year by beating the Commodores for the 20th time in the past 23 games in this series.
     - Freshman tight end Hunter Bryant had nine catches for 121 yards and an a touchdown, Jake Browning threw for two scores and ran for another, and No. 6 Washington cruised to a 38-7 victory over California. Washington held California to 46 total yards in the first half and the Bears were under 100 yards of offense until late in the fourth quarter.
     - Brian Lewerke ran for a touchdown and threw for a score in the first half and Michigan State held on to beat No. 7 Michigan 14-10. The Wolverines had the ball with a chance to drive for a go-ahead TD, but a heave from the Spartans 37 as time expired hit the turf near the goal line.
     - Kenny Hill avoided a defender in the backfield and lunged forward through two more for a 3-yard touchdown run with 2:53 left and No. 8 TCU remained the Big 12's only undefeated team with a 31-24 victory over No. 23 West Virginia. Hill also threw a 45-yard touchdown pass and was on the receiving end of a 48-yard score for the Frogs.
     - Freshman Johnathan Taylor rushed for a season-high 249 yards and two touchdowns to lead a punishing ground game that helped ninth-ranked Wisconsin wear down Nebraska in the second half of a 38-17 win. Taylor carried 25 times while recording the third-most rushing yards ever by a Nebraska opponent, including a 75-yard touchdown run.
     - J.T. Barrett threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in the first half, and No. 10 Ohio State had its most dominant defensive effort in nearly 60 years, routing Maryland 62-14. The stingy Buckeyes held Maryland to 66 total yards, their fewest yards allowed since yielding 60 against Indiana in 1960.
     - Luke Falk threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns and No. 11 Washington State held Oregon scoreless after the first quarter for a 33-10 victory. Erik Powell contributed to the victory with field goals from 25, 52, 47 and 29 yards to help the Cougars improve to 6-0 for the first time in 16 years.
     - Kerryon Johnson rushed for a career-high 204 yards and three touchdowns and No. 12 Auburn beat Mississippi 44-23. Johnson and the 5-0 Tigers continued a recent tear with their third straight lopsided win over a league team.
     - Malik Rosier threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Darrell Langham with 6 seconds remaining and No. 13 Miami beat Florida State 24-20 to end a seven-game losing streak in the series. After Florida State took a 20-17 lead with 1:24 remaining on James Blackman' 20-yard pass to Auden Tate, Rosier drove Miami 75 yards in nine plays and 1:18.
     - Sam Darnold threw for 328 yards and three touchdowns, Ronald Jones II rushed for one touchdown and No. 14 Southern California defeated Oregon State 38-10. Wide receiver Tyler Vaughns and tight end Josh Falo each caught their first career touchdown reception from Darnold as the Trojans (5-1, 3-1 Pac-12) were workmanlike in bouncing back from last week's 30-27 loss at No. 11 Washington State.
     - Josh Jackson threw for 322 yards and a touchdown and No. 16 Virginia Tech bounced back from a loss to defending national champion Clemson to beat Boston College 23-10. Sean Savoy had nine catches for 139 yards and a score after No. 1 receiver Cam Phillips went out with an apparent leg injury in the first quarter.
     - Rashaad Penny ran for 170 yards and two touchdowns to lift No. 19 San Diego State over UNLV 41-10. Juwan Washington added 95 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown for the Aztecs, who have won 27 of their last 30 games.
     - Danny Etling threw a short touchdown pass in the second half and LSU rebounded from a stunning home loss with a 17-16 victory at No. 21 Florida. The Tigers moved the ball well early with jet sweeps and then pounded it between the tackles late, doing just enough to upend the Gators.
     - Bryce Love ran for 152 yards and a touchdown and Stanford handed No. 20 Utah its first loss of the season, 23-20. Utah bottled up the nation's leading rusher for most of the night until he ran away for a 68-yarder that put the Cardinal up 23-13 with 12:02 remaining.
     - Josh Adams ran for 118 yards, including a 73-yard touchdown, and No. 21 Notre Dame beat North Carolina 33-10. Deon McIntosh added 124 yards rushing and two scores for the Fighting Irish, who played without starting quarterback Brandon Wimbush due to a right foot injury.
     - McKenzie Milton threw a career-high five touchdown passes - four in the first half - and Tre'Quan Smith scored four times to help No. 25 UCF roll to a storm-shortened 51-23 victory over Cincinnati on Saturday night in the Knights' first game as a ranked team since 2013. UCF has opened with four wins for the first time since 1988, when the Knights were in Division II.

     UNDATED (AP) - Alex Ovechkin scored four goals to become the first player in 100 years with back-to-back hat tricks to open a season, leading the Washington Capitals past the Montreal Canadiens 6-1 on Saturday night.
     Ovechkin had three goals in the third period in Thursday's opening night win at Ottawa, then matched the feat while helping chase Montreal goalie Carey Price in the first period Saturday. He added his fourth goal at 16:46 of the second period against Al Montoya.
     Nathan Walker became the first Australian native to play in the NHL and had a grand debut when he scored Washington's sixth goal late in the second period.
     Braden Holtby stopped 38 shots and T.J. Oshie also scored for Washington.
     Elsewhere on ice:
     - Brandon Saad, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each had a goal and assist to lead the Chicago Blackhawks over the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-1. Richard Panik also scored and Jan Rutta got his first NHL goal as Chicago followed up on a season-opening 10-1 rout of Pittsburgh with another solid performance.
     - Tyler Bozak, Leo Komarov and Nazem Kadri scored third-period goals and the Toronto Maple Leafs held off the New York Rangers 8-5 in their wild home opener. It was an adventure in defending for both teams at times, with Toronto pulling ahead 5-1 in the first period and chasing Henrik Lundqvist before the Rangers scored four straight to quieten the Air Canada Centre crowd.
     - Evgeni Malkin scored, Matt Murray stopped 26 shots and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Nashville Predators 4-0 in a Stanley Cup Final rematch. Olli Maatta, Ryan Reaves and Jake Guentzel also scored in Pittsburgh's first win in its third game of the season.
     - John Tavares scored twice to lead the New York Islanders to a 6-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres in their home opener. Casey Cizikas had two goals and an assist, and Josh Bailey and Anthony Beauvillier also scored for the Islanders, who won a night after losing 5-0 at Columbus.
     - Jaccob Slavin scored in the shootout and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Minnesota Wild 5-4. Victor Rask scored late in regulation and Sebastian Aho had two key assists while Noah Hanifin, Joakim Nordstrom and Derek Ryan also scored to help Carolina win its opener.
     - Jared McCann scored the tiebreaking goal in the third period after a review overturned the initial ruling of goalie interference, and the Florida Panthers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-4 on Saturday night. Evgenii Dadonov and Nick Bjugstad each had a goal and an assist, and Vincent Trocheck and Colton Sceviour also scored goals for the Panthers.
     - Wayne Simmonds scored 44 seconds into overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks. The puck ricocheted off Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano's skate and directly to the open Simmonds, who quickly gained control and snapped a shot past goalie John Gibson for the Flyers' second victory in three games.
     - Anze Kopitar had two goals, Dustin Brown and Nick Shore also scored and the Los Angeles Kings beat the San Jose Sharks 4-1. Jonathan Quick stopped 24 of 25 shots to earn the victory for the Kings, who won their road opener for first-year coach John Stevens.
     - Bo Horvat scored twice, Jacob Markstrom settled down to make 33 saves after allowing a goal on the game's first shot, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2. Cam Talbot allowed three goals on seven shots before being lifted early in the second period.
     - Frans Nielsen scored the only goal in the shootout and the Detroit Red Wings edged the Ottawa Senators 2-1. Martin Frk had the lone goal in regulation for the Red Wings, who got 37 saves from Jimmy Howard.
     - James Neal's goal at 3:46 of overtime gave the expansion Vegas Golden Knights their second win in two games, 2-1 over the Arizona Coyotes. Neal also who scored twice in the Golden Knights' first regular-season game Friday at Dallas and completed a comeback that saw Vegas tie the score at 1 with 1:12 to play in regulation.
     - Jake Allen made 38 saves and the Blues used three first-period goals to beat the Dallas Stars 4-2 and spoil coach Ken Hitchcock's return to St. Louis. Carl Gunnarsson, Joel Edmundson and Jaden Schwartz each scored in a five-minute span in the first, and Vladimir Tarasenko added a power-play goal in the third.
     - Hobey Baker Award winner Will Butcher set up three power-play goals to steal the spotlight from No. 1 overall draft pick Nico Hischier, and the new-look New Jersey Devils opened the season with a 4-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche. Adam Henrique, Jimmy Hayes, rookie Jesper Bratt and John Moore scored, Kyle Palmieri added two assists and Cory Schneider made 40 saves.
     - Defenseman T.J. Brodie had two goals and two assists and the Calgary Flames scored the final five goals to beat the Winnipeg Jets 6-3 in their home opener. Johnny Gaudreau scored the go-ahead goal and had three assists for Calgary, down 3-1 after the first period.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Cleveland Indians slugger Edwin Encarnacion is hoping to play again this postseason after sustaining ligament damage in his right ankle during Game 2 of the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees. Manager Terry Francona said Encarnacion probably won't start Game 3 Sunday night at Yankee Stadium, but could play. The Indians lead the series 2-0.

     UNDATED (AP) - Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford has been listed as questionable to play in Monday night's game at Chicago. Bradford hasn't played since the season opener because of trouble with his left knee. He took part in practice on a limited basis Saturday.
     Bradford was ruled out ahead of time the last two weeks and has been held out of three straight games, so being declared a 50-50 proposition to play against the Bears is clearly progress. Bradford said on Friday his knee was feeling "night and day" better than two weeks ago.
     In other NFL news:
     - The Buffalo Bills have promoted cornerback Greg Mabin from the practice squad and released receiver Philly Brown, four days after signing him.

     CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR has moved the start of Sunday's race up one hour to 1:10 p.m. Eastern because of a strong threat of rain. The Charlotte Motor Speedway race had traditionally been a Saturday night event, but was rained out last year because of Hurricane Matthew. It was held the next day, a gorgeous Sunday in North Carolina.
     So Charlotte officials this year moved the race to Sunday, but rain again is threatening to disrupt the event. Saturday's first practice session was washed out. Denny Hamlin will lead the field to the green flag in the opening race of NASCAR's second round of the playoffs.
