1. Men's Soccer Rallies to Force Tie with Oregon State

[Georgia Southern (0-4-1) rallied from a two-goal deficit late in the second half to tie the finale of the Gonzaga/Nike Soccer Classic against Oregon State (3-0-2) 2-2. The Eagles held on in two overtimes against the #6 ranked team in the Far West Region to record the tie.]


2. Women's Soccer Edged by Georgia State

3. Eagles Look to Defend Title at Springhill Suites Intercollegiate

[“As the defending champion, we want to go up there, defend our title and put up a good showing,” said head coach Larry Mays. “The tournament has a solid field competing and we have a lot of our conference foes in it. It is a unique tournament in that the whole team plays together for the first 36 holes. It is a good team chemistry builder to have all the guys playing together and getting them to work together as a team.”]


4. Disappointing start doesn’t bode well for GSU

[Saturday’s loss might have been as demoralizing as the 17-13 setback in the 2006 season-opener to Central Connecticut and that season turned into a three-win year. Forget about playoffs, equaling last season’s 6-5 record seems a long way away right now.]


5. SDSU faring well against traditional powers

["We have a ton of respect for coach (Chris) Hatcher and the Georgia Southern tradition," SDSU coach John Stiegelmeier said. "I'm very proud of our football team, but that's what we all aspire to be is that type of program."]


6. First-Half Reaction: Chicago Bears Are Clueless

[Of the 33 plays the Bears have had on offense, 22 have been passes. Forte has only eight touches, and was replaced by the non-Viking Adrian Peterson and Garrett Wolfe late in the second quarter.]


7. Defending champion Farragut builds 14-shot lead in McDonald's Tournament of Champions
