Kopitar beat him with a shot from

  • Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork. Carter Hutton Jersey .com) - A pair of Top 25 teams square off at the Rose Bowl on Saturday when UCLA hosts Arizona. The host Bruins have beaten the Wildcats the last two years, but can they make it three in a row? Despite its 6-2 record, UCLA arguably has been the most disappointing team in the country. The Bruins, ranked seventh in the preseason AP poll, currently are 25th after losing two of their last four games. Coach Jim Moras squad dropped a pair of home games to Utah and Oregon before prevailing on the road over California by two points and Colorado by three in overtime. Dont forget, the Golden Bears and Buffaloes are a combined 2-9 in Pac-12 play this season. Outside the 35-point victory over Arizona State, UCLAs other five wins have come by a combined 23 points, and not one of those five opponents is in the same class as Arizona. The 6-1 Wildcats have been perfect on the road this season with victories over UTSA, Washington State and Oregon. Their one loss (home against USC) came in the game following the huge upset of Oregon, so a slight letdown was possible. Last year, Arizona hosted the Bruins a week after back-to-back road wins over Colorado and California - the same situation UCLA is in now. The Wildcats lost at home to the Bruins by five points as slight 1.5-point favorites. Look for Arizona to gain revenge, especially since UCLAs pass defense has been incredibly weak compared to last year while Arizona is eighth nationally in passing with 348 yards per game. Take Arizona plus seven points in the first of three five-star plays. Oregon State returns home after what might have been its most lethargic performance in years. The Beavers were thoroughly outplayed by Stanford in the 38-14 loss, their third defeat in the last four games. One has to expect a bounce-back effort at home against California, particularly because their secondary is ranked second in the league behind the Cardinal, and Cals strength is its aerial attack. The Golden Bears have played two hard-fought contests the last two weeks, losing a heartbreaker to UCLA and then keeping pace with Oregon for 15 minutes before falling by 18 points. They have not been on the road in almost a month and have not beaten Oregon State in Corvallis since 2006. In fact, the Beavers have won 12 of the last 15 meetings and have covered six of the last seven. They also have outscored Cal, 111-31, over the last two games. It is true this Beavers squad is not in the same class as previous years, but if Mike Rileys team can take Utah to double overtime at home, it should easily defeat California by more than a field goal in the same stadium. Take Oregon State minus three points. Pittsburgh hosts Duke in a key ACC Coastal Division matchup. The Blue Devils are on top at 2-1, including a win over Georgia Tech, which is 3-2. Four other squads are right behind at 2-2. Duke followed up its road victory over Georgia Tech with a seven-point home win over Virginia. The Blue Devils had a week off to get ready for the Panthers, who have lost four of their last five games. Pittsburghs lone win came over Virginia Tech, the worst team in the Coastal Division. The Panthers had zero chance to defeat Georgia Tech last week after fumbling four times on their first four possessions, leading to four Yellow Jackets touchdowns. Pittsburgh trailed 28-0 with only about five minutes off the clock! The Panthers now are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games. They also are 0-5 ATS in their last five as home favorites, and outside of their 2013 win and cover over a 2-10 Virginia team, they have failed to cover an ACC game as home favorites. Since losing by three points (and covering) at home against Pittsburgh early last season, the Blue Devils are 14-3 with the three losses coming to Florida State, Texas A&M and Miami (Florida). They should be favored in this game by about a touchdown. Instead, Pittsburgh is giving 3.5 points. Take Duke plus the 3.5 points. THREE-STAR CHOICES For some strange reason, North Carolina was a 17-point underdog against Miami (Florida) earlier in the week. The line has since dropped to 14.5, still a very high number considering how well the Tar Heels have been playing of late. Moreover, they are 9-4 in their last 13 games when getting nine points or more, and Miami is 4-11 in its last 15 games when giving a touchdown or more. The Hurricanes have looked outstanding the last two games, blowing out both Cincinnati and Virginia Tech, but they still have three defeats on the season, including two in ACC play. In addition, they have their biggest game of the year coming up next against Florida State. Last season, the Hurricanes barely defeated Wake Forest, 24-21, as 26-point home favorites in the game leading up to Florida State, while two years ago, they lost to the Tar Heels prior to taking on the Seminoles. North Carolina has the same conference record (2-2) as Miami and the Heels are playing much better than they did earlier in the season. They almost defeated Notre Dame, losing by a touchdown on the road. Then they beat Georgia Tech by five points at home, and last week, they were getting seven points at Virginia and won outright, 28-27. Take North Carolina plus 14.5 points. San Diego State is at Nevada in a crucial Mountain West Conference battle. The Aztecs lead the West Division with a 3-1 record, but Nevada is one game back at 2-2. The Wolf Pack are riding a two-game winning streak with road victories over BYU and Hawaii. Even though this contest is a home game, they have done a good bit of traveling of late, first going to Provo, Utah, and then out to Honolulu. Now they take on the Aztecs, who were off last week after hosting Hawaii on Oct. 18. San Diego State is one of the better rushing teams in the country with Donnel Pumphrey leading the charge. The sophomore already has 989 yards and 12 touchdowns after just seven games. Meanwhile, Nevada is allowing 4.7 yards per carry this season. San Diego State has won and covered the last three meetings. Another one will be on its way this Saturday night. Take San Diego State plus three points. TWO-STAR SELECTIONS Take Cincinnati -4 (Tulane), Missouri -7 (Kentucky) and Ole Miss -2.5 (Auburn). ONE-STAR PLAYS Take Maryland +3.5 (Penn State), Colorado +4 (Washington), Purdue +23.5 (Nebraska) and San Jose State +7 (Colorado State) THIS YEARS RECORD My overall record stands at 69-63-4 after a 4-5-1 mark in Week 9. There were no five-star selections, so they remain at 5-5. The three-star plays went 0-2-1 and are 10-7-1 overall. The two-star choices went 2-0 for a nine-week total of 25-25. The one-star plays went 2-3 for a 29-26-3 mark.

Custom St. Louis Blues Jerseys . -- A 25-year-old freelance journalist from British Columbia was formally charged on Thursday with a felony, five days after she was arrested in the United States over allegations she threatened to kill her hockey player boyfriend. Kyle Brodziak Jersey . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said.Anze Kopitar scored 5:29 into the first period to help Slovenia beat Austria 4-0 on Tuesday in the qualification round of the Sochi Olympics, extending the experience of playing for his father in international competition. The Olympic hockey rookies will face top-seeded and 2006 Olympic champion Sweden on Wednesday in the quarterfinals. Kopitar, who plays for the Los Angeles Kings, is the only NHL player on the Slovenia squad. His father, Matjaz, is the national teams coach. Robert Kristan had a 30-save shutout for the Slovenes, and he got plenty of support offensively. Jan Urbas scored a short-handed goal midway through the first period, and Sabahudin Kovacevics slap shot put Slovenia up 3-0 early in the second. Austria called timeout late in the game to add an extra skater and Slovenias Jan Mursak took advantage with an empty-net goal. The Austrians lost their first two games by a combined score of 14-4 to Finland and Canada before beating Norway 3-1 in their final game of the preliminary round. Their goaltender, Mathias Lange, made 311 saves. Dmitrij Jaskin Jersey. Kopitar beat him with a shot from the slot early in the game, and that proved to be the only goal the feel-good team needed to keep playing in the tournament it wasnt expected to be in a little more than a year ago. Slovenia earned a surprising spot in the Sochi Games by knocking off Belarus, Ukraine and Denmark in last years qualification tournament. It was an impressive accomplishment for a hockey team ranked 17th in the world from a nation with fewer than 2 million people, only seven hockey rinks and only one professional team. Instead of being just satisfied to be here, Slovenia beat usually steady Slovakia 3-1 in the preliminary round. Austria, meanwhile, is eliminated with one victory and three lopsided losses. Slovenia got two key players back in the playoff round. Kopitar didnt finish the previous game against the U.S. because of flu-like symptoms. Kovacevic was suspended for the previous game for hitting Slovakia forward Tomas Kopecky in the head with his left elbow in a game last week.
