No Kiffin, No Problem: FAU Rolls Past SMU in Boca Bowl

December 22, 2019 at 02:45AM

Florida Atlantic tied a school record for wins in a season and improved to 4-0 in bowl games.

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Chris Robison passed for 305 yards and two touchdowns and Florida Atlantic scored two touchdowns in a 24-second span late in the first half to take control on the way to beating SMU 52-28 in the Boca Raton Bowl on Saturday night.

It was FAU's first game since Lane Kiffin left the Owls to take over at Ole Miss - and the Conference USA champions, playing on their home field, didn't miss a beat under interim coach Glenn Spencer.

James Charles ran for two touchdowns for FAU (11-3), which tied a school record for wins in a season and improved to 4-0 in bowl games. The first of Charles' scores came with a minute left in the first half to break a 14-14 tie, Robison found Brandon Robinson for another touchdown 24 seconds later after an SMU interception and the Owls were off and running.

Rashad Smith ran a fumble back for a score in the third quarter to help FAU blow the game open. Robison completed 27 of 37 passes for FAU.

Shane Buchele completed 27 for 47 passes for 303 yards for SMU (10-3). The Mustangs were seeking their first bowl win since 2012, this game coming a day after they gave coach Sonny Dykes - who has gone 15-11 in his first two seasons with the team, including the 2017 Frisco Bowl loss - a contract extension.

Xavier Jones had a pair of rushing touchdowns for SMU. James Proche, who entered as the NCAA's active career leader in receptions and receiving yards, had nine catches - giving him 301 for his career - for 86 yards and a score for the Mustangs.

Kiffin tweeted congratulations to his former team near the end of the game. ''This was awesome!! 11 wins again so proud of you guys and the coaches!!'' he wrote.

Now Spencer cedes control of the Owls to Willie Taggart, most recently the Florida State coach who was fired there midseason and hired at FAU earlier this month as Kiffin's replacement. Taggart was at the game Saturday, has been around practices and said he's thrilled by what he's seen to this point.

''Practice has been a joy to watch these guys compete,'' Taggart said. ''This is a football team that loves to compete and you can tell it's a team that's really close to one another. To listen to those guys, how they coach each other up on the sideline and things of that nature is really impressive.''

THE TAKEAWAY

SMU: This was a breakout year for the Mustangs by any measure. They were ranked for the first time since 1986, had a double-digit win year for the first time since 1984, got off to an 8-0 start for the first time since 1982 and set a slew of school records - including points (537) and points per game (41.3), sacks (50) and rushing touchdowns (35).

Florida Atlantic: The Owls played without All-America tight end Harrison Bryant, who wasn't expected to participate in the game and had been ill in recent days anyway. They were also without three starters - top receivers Deangelo Antoine and Tavaris Harrison, along with middle linebacker Akileis Leroy, all suspended for academic reasons. Taggart said for the Owls to endure those losses, combined with a coaching change, ''says a lot about this football team.''

POLL IMPLICATIONS

SMU had the 26th-most points in the most recent AP Top 25 poll, so the Mustangs would have had a chance at being in the season's final poll for the first time since 1984. FAU was 29th in the last regular-season poll, and now will see if 11 wins gets the Owls into the Top 25 for the first time.

UP NEXT

SMU: Scheduled to open the 2020 season on Sept. 5 at Texas State. The Mustangs won the first-ever meeting between the schools 47-17 back on Sept. 14.

Florida Atlantic: Scheduled to open the 2020 season on Sept. 3 at Minnesota in what will be Taggart's debut with the Owls. The Owls beat the Gophers in 2007.

Report: LeBron James Doubtful For Sunday's Game vs. Nuggets

December 22, 2019 at 01:54AM

LeBron James has a thoracic muscle strain and is doubtful to play in Sunday's in the Lakers' matchup against the Nuggets.

LeBron James has a thoracic muscle strain and is doubtful to play Sunday in the Lakers' matchup against the Nuggets, according to

Lakers reporter Mike Trudell.

Head coach Frank Vogel said Saturday that the injury occurred in Los Angeles' loss to the Pacers on Tuesday night and that James played through the injury in the team's loss against the Bucks on Thursday.

James played 37 minutes and registered his seventh triple-double of the season against Milwaukee.

After playing in a career-low 55 games last year, the 15-time All-Star has not missed a game this season. 

James is scoring only 25.8 points per game, his lowest mark since the 2015-16 season, but he's averaging a career-high 10.6 assists.

The Lakers are 24-5 on the season, the second best record in the NBA. If James does miss Sunday's game, Alex Caruso, Quinn Cook and Rajon Rondo will likely assume more of the ball-handling duty.

MLB, Umpires Association Reach Tentative Five-Year Labor Agreement

December 22, 2019 at 01:44AM

The agreement reportedly includes a significant pay raise and cooperation involving testing of an automated balls and strikes tracking system.

Major League Baseball and the MLB Umpires Association have reached a tentative labor agreement through the 2024 regular season, the parties announced

Saturday

Both sides, including all 30 Major League teams, must still ratify the agreement for it to take effect.

The new agreement includes "significant" increases in pay and retirement benefits, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman. Provisions are also included that will reportedly allow for earlier retirement. 

Another aspect of the agreement includes the umpires continuing to cooperate with MLB's testing of an automated balls and strikes tracking system. The Umpires Association would reportedly have to assist with a transition to the system if the commissioner chooses to use it in MLB, according to Heyman

Next steps on the five-year agreement's ratification are expected in January 2020.
