Minot State University men's hockey team faced a stiff challenge on its road trip through Colorado but remains in the top spot in the 2017-2018 American Collegiate Hockey Association Men's Division 1 Ranking No. 7....

    UNION LAKE, Mich. - Minot State University men's hockey team faced a stiff challenge on its road trip through Colorado but remains in the top spot in the 2017-2018 American Collegiate Hockey Association Men's Division 1 Ranking No. 7.  The Beavers (10-0-1) started off with a Thursday night beatdown of Colorado State University (8-1) before splitting a pair of games against University of Colorado. On Friday, the Beavers succumbed in the fourth round of a shootout to lose in overtime (2-1 OT SO 1-0) against the Buffaloes before responding with a gritty 3-2 win on Saturday. Next up for the Beavers in a meeting with Dakota College at Bottineau on Thursday night at MAYSA Arena.

    Adrian College (10-0-0) hunkered down at No. 2 for the third straight week after destroying Western Michigan University, winning 9-1 on Thursday at home followed by and 8-0 win on Saturday in Kalamazoo, Mich.  

    The University of Illinois catapulted up three spots to the No. 3 position after an impressive road weekend at last week's No. 3 Lindenwood University, losing in a shootout on Friday (4-3 OT-SO 3-2) and gutting out a 3-1 win on Saturday over the Lions.

    The University of Central Oklahoma, the defending American Collegiate Hockey Association Men's Division 1 National Champions, brought home three wins from Arizona after beating both the University of Arizona (3-0) and Arizona State University (5-1, 6-0) to inch up a spot to No.4 this week, while the University of Colorado rounds out this week's Top 5.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says the organization has not yet determined whether to activate quarterback Teddy Bridgewater from the physically unable to perform list next week.
 
     Spielman told reporters that Bridgewater will be evaluated again following practice on Monday. Spielman will discuss the situation with coach Mike Zimmer, the medical staff and Bridgewater's surgeon before a final call is made.
 
     The deadline for adding Bridgewater to the 53-man roster is Wednesday, the end of the 21-day window that opened when he rejoined the team for practice on Oct. 18.
 
     Bridgewater suffered the dislocation and ligament tears in his left knee in practice on Aug. 30, 2016.
 
     Case Keenum took over at quarterback after Sam Bradford experienced left knee trouble following the season opener.

     LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Major League Baseball season ends tonight in Los Angeles, as the Dodgers host the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the World Series.
 
     The Dodgers stretched the Fall Classic to the limit by rallying for a 3-1 win over the Astros last night.
 
     Yu Darvish gets the ball for the Dodgers, who are trying to win their first title since 1988. Los Angeles ace Clayton Kershaw will be ready in the bullpen after getting knocked out in the fifth inning of Game 5.
 
     The Astros will start Lance McCullers Jr., who began warming up immediately after Game 6 ended. Houston has never won a World Series since entering the majors in 1962.
 
     It will be the first World Series Game 7 ever in Dodger Stadium, which gets to host the game thanks to a change that went into effect this season. Home field no longer goes to the league that wins the All-Star Game. It goes to the team with the better record.
 
     Under the old rules, this Game 7 would've been at Minute Maid Park, home of the Astros, because the American League won this summer's All-Star Game.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Patriots have signed former 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer to be Tom Brady's backup. The deal was announced a day after Hoyer was released by San Francisco. The 49ers acquired Jimmy Garoppolo (gah-RAH'-puh-loh) in a trade with New England.
 
     Hoyer began his career as Brady's backup in New England in 2009, and has spent time with seven NFL teams during his nine-year career. The 32-year-old started the first six games this season for the 49ers before being benched for C.J. Beathard.
