The Eagles rallied from 14 down to post a 23-17 overtime win over the New York Giants, pulling Philadelphia into a tie with Dallas for first place in the NFC East with just three games to go in the regular season. The Cowboys do own the tiebreaker over Philly, so the Eagles still have work to do. On paper, Philadelphia has a slight edge in the schedule, playing Washington and the Giants again. Dallas gets the defending NFC champion LA Rams and Redskins. The key, though, may be when Dallas and the Eagles hook up in Philadelphia in Week 16. That game could very well decide the winner of the division, as well as who goes to the playoffs and who goes home.
Halee Smith scored 22 points, breaking Claudia McDowell’s school record, as Juniata Valley’s girls beat Mount Union last night, 79-10. Karrigan Woodward had a team-high four points for the Trojans.
Penn State’s Kamaria McDaniel has been named co-Big Ten Player of the Week. McDaniel scored 40 points in a win over Pittsburgh last week, making her only the third Lady Lion to score 40 in a game in program history and the first to do so since 2001.
And tonight, the 7-2 Penn State men host fourth-ranked Maryland. Seven of the last eight conference meetings between these two teams have been decided by seven points or less.
