UT Arlington (5-2) used a 7-2 push between the third and fourth quarters for a 48-42 lead with 3:35 remaining. Milton had four points during the streak. Syndi Harvey responded with a 3 point but the Bulls did not come close.

Claire Chastain had 13 points for the Mavericks. Starr Jacobs added 10 points, nine rebounds and four assists. De’Sha Benjamin also scored 10 points.

UT Arlington senior Katie Ferrell had four assists to become the third in the program to pass 400.

Bethy Mununga scored 13 points and took 20 rebounds for South Florida (5-3). Elisa Pinzan added 10 points and 11 assists. Harvey finished with 13 points.

The game was tied at 35 with 4:55 remaining in the third quarter. Milton has scored four straight runs and the Mavericks have led the rest of the way.

This is the first meeting between the teams since 2005 and the fourth overall. UT Arlington’s previous victory over the Bulls was an 81-54 home win in early December 1993.

PA

The excitement level for Big Game week is still high in California, with the possibility of beating rival Stanford and winning The Ax among the Golden Bears’ best goals.

When the Bears hit the training ground Monday for the first time this week, it was on an even different level for good reason.

After playing a game with no more than 20 players and having another postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak, Cal (3-6, 2-4 Pac-12) was more than ready to play another game, in especially against Stanford (3-7, 2-6) on Saturday.

“As excited and motivated as they’ve been since I’ve been here,” said fifth-year coach Justin Wilcox. There has been adversity and things beyond our control … They are very, very eager to train and play and focus on moving forward and not necessarily talking about what happened and what did not happen.

What happened is that Cal tested positive for COVID-19 before the game in Arizona on November 6. This led to program-wide testing on a 99% vaccinated team, forcing Cal to keep quarterback Chase Garbers, six other starters and several other players at home in a 10-3 loss.

Further testing next week brought the total of positives among players and others in the program to over 40, leaving Cal without enough players in some positions and leading to the postponement of last week’s game against Southern California.

Almost all of those players are back this week. The only starters not listed as available are left tackle Will Craug, who has an ankle injury, and right guard McKade Mettauer.

That includes Garbers, who threw for 285 yards and a touchdown and ran for 72 yards and a scoring in Cal’s 2019 victory at Stanford.

“I have all the respect in the world for the quarterback who just terrified us,” said Stanford coach David Shaw. “His athleticism, his mobility, his handling of the game and his acceleration and his big plays in the passing game or his running start is a challenge.”

QB RETURNS

Garbers isn’t the only quarterback set to return this week. Stanford starter Tanner McKee is expected to return after missing the last two games. The Cardinal lost 52-7 to Utah and 35-14 to Oregon State without McKee. He completed 64.8% of his passes this season for 1,916 yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions.

The Cardinal could also bring back cornerback Kyu Blu Kelly, linebacker Ricky Miezan and defensive lineman Tucker Fisk this week.

“I think some guys coming back will help a lot this week,” Shaw said. “But right now it’s not about any of the previous games, it’s not about next week. It’s rivalry week. It’s Big Game week and that’s what these guys are focusing on, trying to keep The Ax.

RIVALS IN STATE

The Bears end the season with three straight games against their state conference rivals with a trip to UCLA next week and the makeup game against USC on December 4.

Wins in those three games would make Cal bowl eligible.

“There is still a lot to be accomplished,” said center Matthew Cindric, who has returned from COVID isolation. “Beating the Three California Schools is something we look forward to every year. Everyone is motivated and excited to go for these three wins.

TALKING ABOUT EMPLOYMENT

Wilcox’s name has been mentioned in connection with certain job offers, notably in Washington where he was previously defensive coordinator for two years.

“I am very, very lucky to have the job that I have,” Wilcox said. “I think very hard about our players, not only their abilities as football players, but I love coaching these guys, our staff that I work with.

“A million people would love to have my job, and I don’t take that for granted. In our profession, it looks like you are on one of two lists, and that could change within the week.

THE AXE

Stanford has dominated the Big Game series lately and returned to The Ax last year after a rare loss in 2019. The Cardinal has won 10 of the last 11 meetings, but Cal’s last two wins have come at Stanford Stadium. The Bears won 24-20 in 2019 and 34-28 in 2009.

Washington fired football coach Jimmy Lake six days after suspending him for a game due to an altercation with a player, the university announced on Sunday.

Lake, who coached defensive backs at Boise State in 2012 and 2013, was 7-6 in two seasons as Washington head coach. The Huskies were limited to four games due to COVID-19 last season, and they are 3-4 in the Pac-12 game this fall.

Lake was suspended for Washington’s 35-30 loss to Arizona State Saturday, after a physical altercation on the sidelines with linebacker Ruperake Fuavai, was filmed in the Huskies’ loss to Oregon on Nov. 6. The university announced its suspension last Monday.

“It’s difficult to change a head coach in any sport knowing that the decision impacts coaches, staff, student-athletes and their families,” said the Washington athletic director, Jennifer Cohen, in a statement Sunday. “However, as the steward of UW Athletics, I must always act in the best interests of our student-athletes, our department and our university.

“No one wanted Jimmy to be more successful than me when I hired him in 2019, but ultimately this change is needed for a variety of reasons, both on and off the pitch. I am grateful for Jimmy’s service in Washington, and we wish him the best of luck moving forward.

Linebacker coach Bob Gregory, who was Washington’s interim head coach on Saturday, will assume the same role for the remainder of the season. He was Boise State’s defensive coordinator in 2001 and returned as a linebacker coach from 2010 to 2013. He was also interim head coach of the Broncos for the Hawaii Bowl following the departure of former Boise State coach Chris Petersen. for Washington in 2013.

Lake took over in Washington after Petersen resigned following the 2019 season, which ended with the Huskies winning over the Broncos at the Las Vegas Bowl. He followed Petersen to Washington as defensive backs coach in 2014 and spent the 2018 and 2019 seasons as defensive coordinator.

Washington (4-6) has just suffered back-to-back losses to the Pac-12 teams, including a 26-16 loss to Oregon on November 6. The Huskies opened the season with a 13-7 loss to Montana – a program that competes at the FCS level. They’re on the road in Colorado on Saturday.

BOISE – A human has died in Idaho from rabies for the first time since 1978, health officials said Thursday.

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and Central District Health, in a press release, said the man from west-central Boise County died in October after a bat got tangled in its clothes in August.

Authorities said the man did not believe he was bitten or scratched. Authorities said he fell ill in October and died in a hospital in Boise.

Exposure to the bat only surfaced after an investigation into its disease. Authorities have not disclosed the man’s name or age.

“This tragic case highlights how important it is for Idahoans to be aware of the risk of exposure to rabies,” said state epidemiologist Dr. Christine Hahn. “Although deaths are rare, it is essential that people exposed to a bat receive appropriate treatment to prevent the onset of rabies as soon as possible.”

Public health officials work with the family as well as with staff at the hospital where the man was treated. Those who have had possible contact with human secretions are being assessed and may receive preventative treatment for rabies.

An estimated 60,000 Americans receive the post-exposure rabies vaccine each year, officials said.

The county sheriff raided a ranch near Windy Bay on Lac Coeur d’Alene and discovered “one of the most unique outfits” he had ever seen.

While searching the ranch, he and the deputies found a “camouflaged canoe” hiding a well. The well appeared to be a normal water well, with a bucket, rope and pulley.

But when MPs lowered the bucket and pulled it back up, it was filled with “fermenting corn mash.”

In fact, the well contained fermenting corn mash to a depth of 7 feet.

MPs also found a perfectly equipped 45-gallon copper still and two oil stoves. Two herders were arrested and brought to justice for smuggling.

From the rhythm of football: The Washington State College Cougars were almost upset by the University of Oregon and had to settle for a tie at 7-7.

“Oregon’s unexpected offensive strength came as a surprise and in the final quarter Oregon outscored the Cougars,” a Pullman correspondent reported. “Short, quick passes and terrific line dollars helped the visitors avoid loss in the last minute of play.”

From the rhythm of adolescence: Society columnist Hannah Hinsdale reported that downtrodden parents discovered a new slogan to use when their teens begged to get in the car: “You can drive a car when you can buy one yourself.” “

She said that if more parents adopted this slogan, “the lives and reputation of the young would be much safer.”

WHAT’S AT STAKE?

Oregon is entering its difficult final month of the regular season with a trip to face its most avid rival. The Ducks face the two Washington schools before a trip to Utah, leader of the Pac-12 South, and finally a home showdown with rival Oregon State. Washington has won two straight games in an ugly fashion to stay in the hunt for Pac-12 North and keep its bowl hopes alive. Last year’s game never came after COVID-19 issues within the Huskies program that landed Oregon in the Pac-12 title game. That fact didn’t suit Washington, but the Huskies have much bigger problems, especially on offense, if they intend to challenge the Ducks.

KEY MATCHUP

Washington’s offensive against the Oregon defensive front. Washington’s offense has been grossly inconsistent and lacking in power. The Huskies totaled 376 yards against Stanford last week, but were content with field goals until Dylan Morris passed a late touchdown to Jalen McMillan. Washington has been held under 350 total yards in six of eight games and is 104th nationally in offensive scoring.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Oregon: WR Jaylon Redd and Mycah Pittman. The Ducks will be deprived of top receiver Johnny Johnson III in the first half due to a targeting penalty. Redd has three career touchdowns against the Huskies, including two in the 2019 game, while Pittman has five catches, a career-high two weeks ago.

Washington: Morris. It has been such a strange season for Morris. It started out optimistic and quickly turned into debates over whether he should be benched in favor of freshman Sam Huard. Morris made the big TD throw late at McMillian against Stanford and can certainly change fan opinion with a win over the Ducks.

FACTS AND FIGURES

Last year was the second time since 1945 that Washington and Oregon had not played. The teams did not meet in 2001 due to a scheduling issue. … Washington leads the Pac-12 in several defensive categories, including third down percentage defense, first downs allowed, pass defense and points defense. … Oregon have won six of the last seven games in Seattle and 14 of the last 16 overall.
