Alabama Starts Atop AP Poll for 2nd Straight Year

UNDATED (AP) _ Alabama is No. 1 in The Associated Press preseason college
football poll for the second straight season and third time in five years.

The Crimson Tide, coming off a last-second loss in the national championship
game that left it No. 2 to Clemson in the final Top 25 of 2016, received 52 from
a panel of 61 media members.

Ohio State was No. 2, edging out No. 3 Florida State and preventing the first 1
vs 2 opening game since the AP preseason poll began in 1950. Alabama opens the
season against the Seminoles in Atlanta on Sept. 2, just the fourth opener
involving top-five teams and the first pitting teams ranked in the top three.

Southern California starts the season at No. 4. Defending national champion
Clemson begins the post-Deshaun Watson era at No. 5.

New Lawsuit Alleges Baylor Failures Under New Rape Policies

WACO, Texas (AP) _ A woman who reported that she’d been sexually assaulted has
filed a lawsuit against Baylor University, alleging questions she faced from the
university shifted blame away from her attacker toward her.

The lawsuit filed in a Waco federal court on Monday alleges that Baylor’s
response to the attack violated federal Title IX laws against gender
discrimination. That was even though university officials said new policies had
been implemented before the attack in response to a sexual violence scandal that
embroiled the Baylor football program.

Jim Dunnan, a Waco lawyer representing the student, told the Waco
Tribune-Herald, “I think that, unfortunately, it’s an example of how things
still have not changed.” Dunnam and Houston lawyer Chad Dunn jointly represent
10 former students who allege that their sexual assaults weren’t handled
adequately.

This lawsuit alleges the student, who Dunn said still attends Baylor and was
identified in the suit only as “Jane Doe 11,” was attacked in April while she
was a sophomore attending under two scholarships, one athletic and one
need-based. The lawsuit said the student underwent a sexual assault examination
by a nurse and the assault was reported to Waco and university police and
Baylor’s Title IX office. The person she accused told investigators that, aside
from kissing, no sexual activity occurred. The lawsuit says that Baylor police
investigated but filed no charges.

Aggie Soccer Blanks San Diego, 2-0

SAN DIEGO, California – The Texas A&M Aggies completed a perfect California weekend by toppling host San Diego, 2-0, Sunday afternoon at Toreros Stadium.

It was a team effort on defense with the forwards and midfield providing offensive pressure much of the match, but the Texas A&M backline of Briana Alston, Jimena Lopez, McKayla Paulson and Grace Piper smothered San Diego, holding the Toreros without a shot on goal and just five total shots on the afternoon. Cosette Morché recorded her second shutout as an Aggie.

Texas A&M (2-0) broke the scoring seal in the 12th minute on Haley Pounds’ first goal of the season. Emily Bates set up the ice breaker when she sent a cross along the top of the 18-yard box. A San Diego defender beat Mikaela Harvey to the offering, but Pounds gathered up a sloppy second touch by the Toreros and sent it into the back of the net from the arc of the box.

The slim 1-0 advantage for the Aggies at the intermission belied the flow of play in the first half. The Maroon and White owned the edge in shots (14-3), shots-on-goal (6-0) and corner kicks (5-4).

The Aggies were unlucky on at least two occasions in the first half with Mikaela Harvey hitting the post once with a missile and Addie McCain having a carom off her shot from 12 yards smothered on the goal line by Toreros’ keeper Amber Michel.

Texas A&M tacked on an insurance goal when Jimena Lopez punched a penalty kick past a diving Toreros’ keeper for her second goal of the season. The Aggies were awarded the PK when Emily Bates was taken down as she was trying to turn the corner on the left side of the box.

The Maroon and White owned wide margins on the stats sheet, including advantages in shots (23-5), shots-on-goal (12-0) and corner kicks (10-6).

The Aggies make their home debut on Saturday when Texas A&M hosts the Oregon Ducks in an 8 pm contest at Ellis field.

TEXAS A&M QUOTES

Head Coach G Guerrieri
On the match…
“It’s a good win with another shutout against a solid West Coast Conference team on the road. That’s two shutouts in a row. There was some good play all the way around for us. Our midfield was super again, led by Mikaela Harvey. All around we created a lot of chances. Their goalkeeper made some spectacular saves to keep the game close until late. Emily was really strong with her offensive move to draw the penalty in the box and Jimena (Lopez) was confident and strong with her PK.”

On moving forward…
“We’ll look to build on these two wins on the road. We’re excited about getting back to Ellis Field next Saturday against Oregon.”

On the smothering defensive play…
“When you talk about our defense, it begins with our offense. Our forwards start our defense with their pressure. The leadership that came from McKayla Paulson on the backline along with Jimena (Lopez) and Breezy (Briana Alston) becoming more comfortable in our system really makes for a strong group on defense. Cosette (Morché) really didn’t have to do much work back there in goal, but she was a really good leader.

Senior forward Haley Pounds
On her first half goal…
“Emily (Bates) did an awesome job of attacking down the line and she sent a really good ball into the midfield. Miki (Harvey) was able to guide the defender off the ball and I was able to get a good shot off with the left foot.”

Gonzalez pitches 6 scoreless, White Sox hold off Rangers 3-2

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Miguel Gonzalez escaped early trouble and pitched six scoreless innings, leading the Chicago White Sox over the Texas Rangers 3-2 Sunday.

Texas dropped 2 1/2 games behind the Twins and the Angels for the AL’s second wild-card spot. The Rangers finished a 10-game homestand 7-3, but split the four-game series against Chicago.

Gonzalez (7-10) pitched out of one-out, bases-loaded jams in both the second and third innings. After allowing singles to the first two batters in the fourth, Gonzalez retired the last nine batters he faced.

Juan Minaya recorded his second save, both in the last three games, despite giving up Rougned Odor’s two-run homer with two outs in the ninth.

Chicago capitalized on the Rangers’ stranding runners by scoring all three runs in the fourth inning against A.J. Griffin (6-4).

Semien, Cotton send Athletics past sloppy Astros 3-2

By KRISTIE RIEKEN

HOUSTON (AP) _ Marcus Semien wound up with a Little League home run when Houston kept throwing the ball away, Jharel Cotton pitched well into the seventh inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Astros 3-2 Sunday.

A day after the AL West-leading Astros turned six double plays, their defense quickly fell apart. Boog Powell led off the game with a single and Semien followed with a grounder in the hole that shortstop Alex Bergman threw into right field trying for a forceout at second base.

Semien, who was credited with an infield hit, never stopped running. The relay from right went to first baseman Marwin Gonzalez, and his throw to third skipped into left field, allowing Semien to score easily on the two errors.

The A’s got their other run in the sixth on a passed ball by Juan Centeno.

Cotton (6-10) yielded four hits and two runs 6 2/3 innings for his first win since June 23. Blake Treinen allowed one hit in two scoreless innings for his seventh save.

Brad Peacock (10-2) pitched into the sixth.

Lopez’s Golden Goal Sends Aggies to 1-0 Win over Pepperdine

SAN DIEGO, California – In her first career game as an Aggie, Jimena Lopez notched a golden goal in the 94th minute to send Texas A&M to a 1-0 win at Torero Stadium Friday evening.

Lopez gathered the ball 25 yards out and weaved through three defenders before finding a clearing at the edge of the penalty box, left of the arc. She launched a missile to into the right side netting for the game winner 3:39 into the first overtime period.

In the first half, the Aggies’ had several strong scoring opportunities, especially three by Ally Watt, but they were all turned away. In the 22nd minute, Watt had a one-on-one with the keeper after flying by the defense, but Brielle Preece made the save. Preece stonewalled Watt again in the 23rd minute and a defender deflected a follow-up shot by Watt.

It was scoreless at the intermission with Texas A&M owning the margins in shots (10-8) and shots-on-goal (4-2) and the Waves holding a 6-3 edge in corner kicks.

The Aggies owned most of the possession in the second half and it resulted in a 7-2 edge in shots, but to no avail.

Cosette Morché earned her first shutout in goal as an Aggie, recording four saves in the match.

For the contest, Texas A&M owned the advantages in shots (18-10) and shots-on-goal (7-4), and Pepperdine held a slim edge in corner kicks (7-6).

Texas A&M returns to action Sunday when they play the San Diego Toreros on USD’s home pitch at 3:30 pm Central.

TEXAS A&M QUOTES

Head Coach G Guerrieri
On the match…
“That’s was a hard-fought win over a Pepperdine squad that is going to put up a lot of wins in a very good conference. I thought we got stronger and stronger as the match went on. We kept getting good chances in the attack, especially with some terrific opportunities by Ally (Watt), but Pepperdine’s keeper made some great saves and their defense wouldn’t crack. But in overtime Jimena (Lopez) such a great play to get into scoring range and she sent a screamer into the net.”

On Jimena Lopez…
“She has played in some big matches already in her career with Mexico’s youth teams, so she’s not going to shy away from big moments. She gave us an outstanding 94 minutes on the defensive end and came away with the golden goal at the end. She’s a terrific person off the field and a great player on the field. This is a great start for her and I think the 12th Man is really going to watch her play the next four years.”

Freshman Jimena Lopez
On her first career goal…
“I’m so happy about the goal. Everyone did such a great job. I was just the one who put it in at the end. I saw an opening to take the shot, so I took it.”

Corbin goes 8 1/3 innings, Diamondbacks beat Astros 4-0

HOUSTON (AP) _ Patrick Corbin came within an out short of his first career shutout and first complete game since 2013 in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 4-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Thursday.

After allowing a two-out double to Yuli Gurriel in the bottom of the ninth, Corbin was pulled by Arizona manager Torey Lovullo. Archie Bradley took over on the mound and struck out Marwin Gonzalez.

Corbin (10-11) allowed four hits and one walk, struck out seven and threw just 105 pitches. After blanking the Chicago Cubs in 6 2/3 innings in his previous start, Corbin has 16 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings.

After scoring a combined 18 runs in consecutive wins over Arizona on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Astros’ bats went cold in the final game of the four-game series, which was split between Arizona and Houston.

Arizona second baseman Daniel Descalso hit an inside-the-park home run off Astros starter Mike Fiers in the fourth inning on a deep drive that sailed over the head of center fielder Jake Marisnick and bounced off the wall away from him.

It was the 14th inside-the-park homer in Arizona franchise history and the third this season. It hadn’t happened outside of Arizona since Kelly Stinnett did it on Aug. 29, 2005, in San Diego.

Descalso’s homer put Arizona up 2-0 after Jeff Mathis’ single that scored Ketel Marte, who reached third following a walk and a two-base throwing error by Fiers. Jake Lamb made it 3-0 in the sixth with his 26th homer.

Fiers (7-8) allowed three runs, two earned, on seven hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings.

The Diamondbacks added a run in the eighth when David Peralta scored on a wild pitch from Francis Martes and a throwing error by catcher Max Stassi. The Astros committed two errors in the game, and Arizona had three.

Lee Falls in U.S. Amateur Round of 32

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. — Texas A&M men’s golf incoming freshman Walker Lee concluded his run at the 117th United States Amateur Championship on Thursday, falling in the match play round of 32 at Riviera Country Club.

Lee (71-72=142, +2), who ended stroke play with a share of 35th place, defeated Kyle McClathchie of South Africa, 2 and 1, Wednesday during the initial stage of match play but fell to Doc Redman of Raleigh, N.C. (one up) in his return to the course.

In addition to Lee’s showing, Texas A&M was well represented at the event as current Aggies Cameron Champ (77-77=147, +7) and Kavan Eubank (77-74=151, +11) as well as recent graduate Adrià Arnaus (77-78=155, +15) were featured in the field. Additionally, A&M graduate transfer and current UTSA golfer Jake Goodman (80-72=152, +12) took his swings in Southern California.

The Aggies look to be in a strong position for the upcoming 2017-18 campaign as Lee joins Champ and rising junior Chandler Phillips, who each claimed All-America honors last season, as well as Eubank and six other letterwinners from last season. Texas A&M will tee off the new season Sept. 10-12 when the Aggies take part in the Badger Invitational at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison, Wis.

Texas A&M & adidas Unveil Special Edition “Bright Lights” Alternate Football Uniforms

Texas A&M and adidas today unveiled the “Bright Lights” Primeknit alternate football uniform, which will be worn by the Aggies on Saturday, October 28 versus Mississippi State at Kyle Field.

adidas and Texas A&M Athletics set out to collaboratively design and create a first for the brand and a first for the Aggies that would be at the forefront of design and innovation and provide players with the perfect blend of style and technology.

Pushing Primeknit technology to the next level, the “Bright Lights” Primeknit alternate football uniform introduces the merging of two different colored yarns to create a dual-color jacquard pattern that gives the illusion of two distinct luminous colors. Made with a cutting-edge, proprietary yarn blend that increases durability and abrasion resistance, Primeknit is the premier compression uniform system, featuring the latest generation of adidas TECHFIT technology. Primeknit helps keep players cool and increases range of motion, giving athletes an unrivaled level of comfort and allowing them to perform at their highest levels. The jersey’s padlock system secures tension over the shoulder pads, while the bodymap fit adheres to the player, making it difficult for opponents to grab, hold or tackle.

Inspired by the speed, ferocity and clean look of supercars, the “Bright Lights” Primeknit alternate football uniform is centered around an all-maroon theme with black accents. The jerseys are highlighted with the Texas A&M moniker on the chest and white numbers that are emblazoned with reflective embellishments to shine at night. Additionally, the dual-color maroon and black pants feature a reflective Texas A&M logo on the left leg. Stripping the jersey down to the essentials to reduce weight like a high-performance car, the stripes have been removed to create an all-new look for the Aggies.

Capping off the theme is a HydroSkin® helmet from Hydro Graphics Inc. (HGI) that features a supercar style iridescent paint job with a clear-coat finish that fades from maroon to black. This innovative feature seamlessly blends two colors to create the appearance that the helmet is transforming colors. Chrome Texas A&M logos don on the sides of the helmet to shine under the bright lights of the stadium.

Additional design details include matching maroon and black adizero 5-Star 5.0 gloves, embossed with an oversized white, reflective graphic of the Texas A&M logo on the inside of the gloves. The adizero 5-Star 5.0 gloves feature 4-way stretch mesh for compression fit and GripTack for consistent control in all weather conditions. To complete the head-to-toe look, the team will be powered by matching maroon adizero and FREAK cleats with color coordinated accent colors.
