    Giancarlo Stanton is not in the New York Yankees' starting lineup against Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander for Game 2 of the AL Championship Series with a strained right quad. Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Stanton was hurt running out an infield single in the second inning of Game 1 a night earlier. Stanton remained in the game and homered off Zack Greinke in a 7-0 New York victory. Stanton had an MRI that revealed the strain. Boone says Stanton is available to pinch hit and could start again later in the series. Cameron Maybin was set to play left field and bat seventh in place of the 2017 NL MVP. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • As rap music thumped from the large sound-system speakers sitting atop lockers at one end of the room, several Seattle players stood on their chairs and danced. This was their party. On the road, the Seahawks make themselves at home. Russell Wilson threw two TD passes and ran for one, Seattle's defense forced four turnovers and Chris Carson scored on a 1-yard touchdown run with 3:30 left as the Seahawks rallied for a 32-28 win Sunday over the mistake-prone Browns. The Seahawks (5-1), who are 3-0 on the road for the first time in 39 years, gave up touchdowns on Cleveland's first three possessions before storming back. 'If we want to be a championship team, we have to win these types of game,' Wilson said. He connected with wide receiver Jaron Brown on his scoring passes, and Seattle's cool quarterback scampered 16 yards for a TD. The Seahawks, who have shown a knack for winning tight games, were last unbeaten in their first three road games in 1980, when they went 4-12. 'These guys are all together,' said Seattle coach Pete Carroll. 'They're committed. They care, and they're playing for each other.' The Browns (2-4) were hurt by their own miscues. They couldn't overcome three interceptions, a fumble, blocked punt or quarterback Baker Mayfield's hip injury. Cleveland fell to 0-3 at FirstEnergy Stadium, and as Browns fans filed out, many were wondering what has become of a season they couldn't wait to get started. The Browns also came out on the short end of several questionable calls by an officiating crew that had its hands full. 'The refs are never an excuse,' Mayfield said. 'I will probably get fined for saying this, but it was pretty bad today. ... It ticks me off.' Mayfield's three picks raised his NFL-leading total to 11, and the second-year QB still hasn't found a rhythm. Trying to bring the Browns back late, Mayfield, who went to the locker room in the third quarter to be evaluated, was intercepted by Seattle's K.J. Wright with 2:41 remaining. The Seahawks defenders celebrated the game-clinching turnover in front of Cleveland's Dawg Pound section, which pelted them with cans and other debris. Wilson then ran out the clock as the Seahawks moved to 5-1 for the third time. 'It was a crazy game,' Wilson said. 'It was a battle. We were down 20-6 against a good football team with a lot of great players. We kept believing something great was going to happen and, sure enough, it did. In the fourth quarter we found a way again.' Carson's short TD burst capped an efficient 79-yard drive by Wilson, who showed his usual poise and precision after the Browns had taken a 28-25 lead on Nick Chubb's 3-yard TD run. Wilson finished 23 of 33 for 299 yards and stayed error-free. He has yet to throw an interception this season, and to this point, the eight-year veteran is outplaying every other QB in the league. Mayfield, on the other hand, is struggling. He completed 22 of 37 passes for 249 yards, but he forced several throws and made a deliberate attempt to get the ball to Odell Beckham, who finished with six catches for 101 yards. Carson gained 124 yards on 24 carries for the Seahawks, who lost tight end Will Dissly in the first half with an Achilles injury. Dissly, whose rookie season was ended by a knee injury, left the stadium on crutches with his foot in an immobilizing boot. 'It's serious. It's a big loss,' Carroll said. 'He's been playing great football. It's a really devastating injury for him.' Even after the Browns scored on their first three drives and opened a 20-6 lead, Wilson wasn't rattled. He hung in the pocket and took a big hit from linebacker Joe Schobert — his teammate at Wisconsin — while completing a 17-yard TD pass with 22 seconds left in the half to pull the Seahawks within 20-18. Seattle's 2-point conversion failed, but the Seahawks were back in it after the Browns got greedy moments earlier. Instead of running the ball, first-year coach Freddie Kitchens called a pass play and Mayfield forced one into the end zone that was behind Jarvis Landry, tipped and intercepted by safety Tedric Thompson. 'You can't move the ball if you turn the ball over,' Kitchens said. 'Simple as that. Execution. I have to call better plays, but it is execution and turning the ball over.' N'SYNC The Seahawks had one of the season's best TD celebrations when four players lined up and mimicked boy band N'Sync's 'Bye, Bye, Bye,' complete with choreographed dance moves. STUNNING START The Browns scored on the first play of the second quarter to go up 20-6. It was the first time Seattle allowed an opponent to score touchdowns on its first three drives since Dallas did it in 2008. NO SHAKE Mayfield didn't participate in the pregame coin toss, his absence notable since it came just days after San Francisco cornerback Richard Sherman said the quarterback disrespected him by not shaking hands prior to kickoff. INJURIES Browns: Mayfield downplayed his hip injury, which happened on a first-half scramble. 'It hurts, but it's a physical game of football,' he said. ... DT Daniel Ekuale sustained a head injury in the closing minutes. UP NEXT Seahawks: Host Baltimore on Oct. 20. Browns: Have a bye next week before traveling to New England on Oct. 27. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL
  • Lamar Jackson presented the Cincinnati Bengals with a can't-win dilemma: Try to prevent the versatile quarterback from running, or stop him from passing? Turns out, Cincinnati was powerless to do either. Jackson rambled, shimmied and passed his way through the winless Bengals while guiding the Baltimore Ravens to a 23-17 victory on Sunday. Alternatingly jutting left and right, up the middle and occasionally toward the sideline, Jackson carried 19 times (including three kneel-downs at the end). His most notable runs were a 36-yarder on the opening drive, a 21-yard score and a 16-yard foray up the middle on a third-and-14 in the fourth quarter. 'I want to win. If I have to run, I do it,' Jackson said. 'Today, that's what it was. Sometimes I had to pass, sometimes I had to run.' Regardless of where Jackson went, the Bengals (0-6) were usually a step behind. 'It's hard because you got all your skill guys covering down the field, eyes on their man,' safety Jesse Bates said. 'And then you got the D-line, and they're just rushing against basically a running back. It's pretty tough.' The Bengals (0-6) aren't the only team to struggle against Jackson, although they've had their fair share of problems against the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner. Jackson now has three career 100-yard rushing games, tied with Billy Kilmer for most by a quarterback in his first two seasons since 1950. Jackson's first 100-yard game came last November against Cincinnati, in his first NFL start. In this one, Jackson avoided trouble when possible but also took a few hard hits when forced to stay between the hash marks. Each time, he popped up with enthusiasm, ready to do it again. 'The most frustrating thing for the defense is, you got the play covered — and he just finds (space),' Bengals coach Zac Taylor said. 'He's an elite athlete. We've played a couple good athletes, (but) he's one of the rarest I've ever seen in person. Just one little crease and he's got 30 yards on you.' Jackson became the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era to pass for at least 200 yards and rush for 150 in a single game. Tapering off his downfield runs at the end, Jackson finished tantalizingly short of Michael Vick's single-game record of 173 yards rushing by a quarterback. 'Having your name mentioned with his is pretty cool,' Jackson said. Not that placing his name in the NFL record book is all that important for Jackson. 'To his credit, he's all about winning the game,' Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. 'Setting records is not what he's thinking about now.' Jackson was also adept when throwing, going 21 for 33 without an interception. But on this day, his legs counted most. 'Lamar was able to get out and run because of the way they were playing,' Harbaugh said. Cincinnati jumped on top when Brandon Wilson took the opening kickoff 92 yards for a score, but Jackson responded quickly. Baltimore (4-2) finished with 497 yards of offense, and the Ravens retained sole possession of first place in the AFC North. The Bengals, meanwhile, remain in search of their first win under Taylor. Andy Dalton went 21 for 39 for 235 yards and scored on a 2-yard run with 1:28 left. But Cincinnati failed to a produce an offensive touchdown over the first three quarters in a third straight game. Baltimore compiled a 212-6 advantage in yardage and an 11-0 margin in first downs during the first quarter. Jackson led the way with 106 yards through the air and 85 on the ground. The Ravens scored touchdowns on each of their first two possessions, a 21-yard run by Jackson and a 1-yard plunge by Mark Ingram. The quarter ended just before Justin Tucker kicked a 40-yard field goal for a 17-7 lead. Late in the half, the Bengals moved to the Baltimore 21 before Marlon Humphrey intercepted a deflected pass. The Ravens gave it back when tight end Mark Andrews fumbled while trying to hurdle a defender, and Cincinnati cashed in with a field goal. RARE OCCURRENCE Wilson's kickoff return for a touchdown was only the 11th allowed by the Ravens in their existence, and the first since Joe McKnight of the Jets went 107 yards on Oct. 3, 2011. It was also the first opening kick TD in the NFL since Pharoh Cooper's 103-yarder for the Rams against the Jaguars on Oct. 15, 2017. Finally, it was the first by Cincinnati since Bernard Scott against Pittsburgh in 2009. INJURIES Bengals: CB Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) was carted off in the first quarter and did not return. ... G John Miller left in the second quarter with a groin injury. He did not return. ... OT Cordy Glenn (concussion) was inactive for the sixth consecutive week. Ravens: Rookie WR Marquise Brown and MLB Patrick Onwuasor, the team's leading tackler, were inactive with ankle injuries. UP NEXT Bengals: Cincinnati takes another shot at getting its first victory next Sunday in a home matchup with Jacksonville. Ravens: Baltimore faces the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, the first meeting between the teams on the West Coast since 2011. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL
  • Two weeks ago, Stefon Diggs was a dissatisfied star with a decreasing role for a Minnesota team in a mini-crisis on the passing attack. Patience was all Diggs needed, as it turned out, to re-establish himself as a prominent receiver for Kirk Cousins and the Vikings. Cousins threw to Diggs for three of his four touchdowns, racking up a season-high 333 passing yards as the Vikings ravaged the Philadelphia Eagles secondary in a 38-20 victory Sunday. 'You never really know how it's going to come out, because you never know what defense you're going to get and what adjustments they're going to make, but as far as like starting fast early, it's always a big thing because you want to hit the ground running,' said Diggs, who had 167 yards on seven catches. Diggs scored on first-half passes that covered 51 and 62 yards, becoming the first player since Randy Moss in 2000 to post two touchdown receptions of 50-plus yards in one game for the Vikings (4-2). 'You play the game that's called,' Cousins said, 'and today it was an aggressive one.' Diggs' most important catch came late in the third quarter, a double toe tap in the back of the end zone from 11 yards out that pushed the lead to 11 points after Carson Wentz and the Eagles (3-3) had pulled within 24-20 with 17 straight points. The Vikings became the first team to hit the 100-yard rushing mark in the last nine games against the Eagles, who also surrendered 300-plus passing yards for the fourth time in six games. The danger presented by Dalvin Cook in the backfield and the success of Cousins at selling fakes created a wealth of play-action completions. 'They run the ball, play action, and throw the ball deep,' Douglas said. 'That's just what they always do.' Cousins went 22 for 29 with one sack and one interception that was, oddly enough, Diggs' fault when a sideline throw hit him in the hands, bounced off his helmet and into the air behind him for former Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo to pick off late in the second quarter. The sign that this was not the Eagles' day came right after that, when a fake field goal from the 21 failed with 20 seconds left. The snap to Jake Elliott left the kicker with only one receiver, well-covered tight end Dallas Goedert, and the desperation throw was tipped by Anthony Harris and intercepted by Everson Griffen. 'We had the look we wanted, tried to take advantage of it, get an opportunity to maybe shoot it in the end zone after that,' Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. 'They made a great play.' STRUGGLING SECONDARY The Eagles have been badly missing starting cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Avonte Maddox, and Cousins took full advantage. Adam Thielen made a slick double move to beat Sidney Jones for a textbook fade throw by Cousins for a 7-yard touchdown to cap the opening drive. Diggs blew by Rasul Douglas on a post route in the second quarter to put the Vikings up 17-3. Diggs beat Douglas again on the first snap of their next possession for the second of his career-best three scores, after Douglas began the play like he was settling into zone coverage and Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins missed his assignment over the top. Even with a 32-yard touchdown pass by Wentz to running back Miles Sanders before the break, the Vikings pushed their first-half scoring advantage in three home games this year to 66-17. Diggs famously made the 'Minneapolis Miracle' catch to win a playoff game two years ago for the Vikings, then followed that big moment with his first 1,000-yard season in 2018, but after being targeted an average of 10 times per game last year, he had a quiet start to 2019. Following an ugly performance two weeks ago in defeat at Chicago that had the passing game out of sorts, Diggs skipped some team activities, drew more than $200,000 in fines and acknowledged unspecified dissatisfaction with the direction of the offense while speaking cryptically about his desire to be with the Vikings. Since then, the Vikings have won twice by a combined score of 66-30. 'We've got guys that can light this thing up,' Cook said, adding: 'We give him opportunities to do what he do, he's going to be Kirk.' DEFENSIVE FINISH Wentz finished 26 for 40 for 306 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. After the last score by Diggs, the Eagles wilted under the weight of the Vikings pass rush and the crowd noise at U.S. Bank Stadium, where they left as first-time Super Bowl champions following their last visit two seasons ago. Eric Kendricks and Mackensie Alexander shared a third-down sack after an all-out blitz called by Vikings coach Mike Zimmer forced a punt. Anthony Barr recovered a fumble by Zach Ertz to end the next drive at midfield. Alexander picked off Wentz on the following possession. 'I'm sure there was a lot of doubt in the stadium, because they're a very explosive team,' Zimmer said. INJURY REPORT Eagles: LT Jason Peters hurt his knee in the second quarter, returned briefly after an initial absence and then was pulled for good. Andre Dillard took over. ... LB Nigel Bradham (ankle) was also injured in the second quarter and did not return. Vikings: LT Riley Reiff (ankle) left in the first quarter, returned briefly, then was sidelined in the second half and replaced by Rashod Hill. UP NEXT Eagles: Play at Dallas next Sunday.

  • There were plenty of people standing on the Houston Texans sideline that felt they had something to prove against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Just about all of them succeeded, too. Deshaun Watson threw for 280 yards and a touchdown while running for two more, outdueling Chiefs counterpart Patrick Mahomes, who was famously picked two spots ahead of him in the 2017 draft. Carlos Hyde ran for 116 yards and a touchdown against the team that traded him to Houston in the preseason, when the Chiefs decided there was no room for him in their own backfield. Most importantly, Bill O'Brien proved he could beat a team pegged a Super Bowl contender, leading the Texans to a come-from-behind 31-24 victory after losing three of his last four to Kansas City. 'They care about the team. They seem to have fun with each other. We've just got to keep it going,' said O'Brien, whose losses to the Chiefs include a postseason defeat. 'We just had a really good win against a good team, but we're 4-2 and 4-2 gets you nowhere.' Better than being 3-3, though. That was still a possibility until DeAndre Hopkins made a sliding grab on fourth-and-3 from the Kansas City 27 with just under 2 minutes to go. That allowed the Texans to run out the clock and deal the Chiefs (4-2) their second consecutive loss — both at Arrowhead Stadium. 'It's a wonderful feeling to be able to deal with all the adversity and the up and down and flow of the game and to be able to fight for 60 minutes,' Watson said. 'That's what we did. We kept fighting and kept pushing and kept encouraging. This locker room, everyone is always fighting to the end regardless of the score. We don't look at the scoreboard. We're going to play 60 minutes every game.' Mahomes, hobbled once again by a sore left ankle, finished with 273 yards passing and three TDs while throwing his first interception of the season. Two of the scores went to Tyreek Hill, who returned for the first time since breaking his collarbone in a Week 1 win in Jacksonville. 'We just have to flip a few things,' Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. 'The margin of winning and losing in this league is minute. We were this close to coming out of this thing with a win.' It wasn't a pretty game for either side. They combined for 21 penalties totaling nearly 150 yards, and that didn't include close to a dozen flags that were offsetting, overruled or declined. It was Kansas City that started hot, engineering drives of at least 90 yards twice in the first quarter. Hill finished the first with a 46-yard reception — the first touchdown throw in a first quarter by Mahomes since Week 1 — while Damien Williams finished the second with a 14-yard TD catch. In between, Hyde coughed up the ball on Houston's first offensive play. But the big running back soon atoned for his mistake. Hyde battered the Chiefs' porous run defense the rest of the game, punctuating a big first half against his ex-team with a short touchdown run. 'It was big for him to come in here and do what he did,' Watson said. The Texans then took the lead into the locker room after Mahomes was strip-sacked with 20 seconds left and Houston recovered, and Watson waltzed into the end zone on the very next play. It wasn't the last time he reached pay dirt. Mahomes hit Hill again in the third quarter to give the Chiefs the lead back , but the Houston quarterback answered with a 12-play, 93-yard drive consuming more than 8 1/2 minutes. By the time he spun into the end zone and converted the 2-point try, the Texans had a 31-24 lead with 6:17 to go. Kansas City went three-and-out on its next possession, and a defense that has been maligned for most of Reid's tenure with the Chiefs failed to make a stop once again. 'We haven't played a perfect game on defense,' Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark said, 'and we're not going to play a perfect game, but we need to play a bit better. We need to eliminate the rush. When you eliminate the rush, you can have more fun.' FIRST PICK The first pick Mahomes had thrown this season was nearly wiped out when an official threw a flag for pass interference. But after referee Shawn Hochuli announced the penalty, the officials huddled and decided to pick up the flag in a bizarre series of events. 'It was man coverage and I saw (Travis) Kelce getting ready to do his move, so I threw it to where he was going to be and he got tackled,' Mahomes said. 'With how the ruling worked, they said since the ball was uncatchable it wasn't pass interference or something.' INJURIES Texans: CB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) was inactive after showing up on the injury report Friday. Also inactive were WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) and RB Taiwan Jones (hip). ... RT Tytus Howard (knee), CB Bradley Roby (hamstring) and LB Zach Cunningham (knee) left during the game. Chiefs: Inactive starters included WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring), LT Eric Fisher (groin), LG Andrew Wylie (ankle), DT Chris Jones (groin) and LB Anthony Hitchens (groin). ... CB Kendall Fuller was due to get X-rays on his right hand after leaving the game. He had surgery on the same hand last season. UP NEXT Texans visit the Colts next Sunday.

  • The Rockets are back home in Houston, looking to leave behind the distractions from their trip to Asia. Their two games in Japan were overshadowed by the aftermath of a tweet by general manager Daryl Morey in support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong, angering fans and officials in China. In their first practice since returning, the Rockets insisted they wouldn't let the fallout distract them from preparing from the season. 'Guys can handle it,' coach Mike D'Antoni said. 'We still got good work in. Everything's fine, but you know what happened (is) regrettable, and it happened, but as I said, our work will get done.' Veteran P.J. Tucker denied that dealing with this situation has been a distraction to this team trying to contend for its first title since winning back-to-back championships in 1994-95. 'Not really, honestly,' he said. 'This time of season, everybody's getting in shape, getting ready for the season, focusing in. So with all of the things that go on in life, and whatever, this is still our job, so we still come in and do our job every single day.' The Rockets were in Hawaii on Oct. 4 to play a preseason game against the Los Angeles Clippers on the first leg of a trip that included two games in Japan when Morey tweeted an image that said: 'Fight For Freedom. Stand With Hong Kong.' His tweet was in reference to pro-democracy demonstrations in the semiautonomous Chinese territory that has been mired in escalating violence between protesters and law enforcement. The tweet was deleted soon after it was posted, and Rockets owner and billionaire casino and restaurant owner Tilman Fertitta quickly rebuked his GM with a tweet saying that Morey does not speak for the team. He added: 'Our presence in Tokyo is all about the promotion of the NBA internationally and we are NOT a political organization.' Despite the swift response from Fertitta, the damage was already done. Former Rockets star Yao Ming took offense to Morey's support for the anti-government protesters and as president of the Chinese Basketball Association, suspended its ties to the Rockets over the tweet. Events in China promoting the Lakers-Nets series were canceled, NBA media partner Tencent said it was evaluating its plans to cover the league, and China state broadcaster CCTV did not air either preseason game. The tweet also caused some Chinese corporations to suspend relationships with the NBA and it is unclear what can be done to mend the relationship. D'Antoni was asked if there is anything the coaches and players can do to help repair things with China. 'We've just got to keep playing and keep trying to be good ambassadors for the game, that's all the players can do,' he said. 'And then we'll let the NBA and the Houston Rockets sort things out.' Morey hasn't spoken publicly since the tweet, with his only comments on the issue coming in two more tweets on Oct. 6. In those tweets he did not apologize for his initial tweet but did say that his tweets 'in no way represent the Rockets or the NBA.' NBA Commissioner Adam Silver backed Morey's right to express his opinion and said: 'We are not apologizing for Daryl exercising his freedom of expression.' Morey was at the Toyota Center on Sunday but did not speak to reporters and was not at the small portion of practice that media was permitted to attend. While Morey stayed out of the spotlight it was up to the players and D'Antoni to address how the Rockets can move past what happened. James Harden understands that as the face of the team, people want him to be a spokesman for the Rockets in all issues, but right now he wants to keep his comments on basketball. 'We've just been focusing on us and getting better,' he said. 'Whatever is going to happen is going to happen. We focus on what we can control in this locker room ... we had an unbelievable road trip, a great experience in those cities, and now we're back and just trying to get better.' ____ AP Sports Writer Stephen Hawkins contributed to this report. ____ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • The family of a missing Utah tech executive has called off a search for her after police reported that a body was found inside a parked car in the San Francisco Bay Area. Police in San Jose said the body was discovered Saturday in an area where Erin Valenti's family had been searching. Authorities said they were working to confirm the identity of the person and the cause of death. 'While we were praying for a different outcome, we are so appreciative for the help and support you have given,' according to a Facebook post by the group Help Find Erin Valenti. 'Please remember Erin as the beautiful, smart, funny woman that she was,' it said. Valenti heads Tinker Ventures, an app development company based in Salt Lake City. Her family grew worried after she missed her flight home on Monday following a business trip. Her parents told the San Jose Mercury News they feared she may have suffered a manic episode. 'We talked to her for hours on and off' on Monday night, her mother Whitey Valenti told the newspaper. 'Her thoughts were disconnected. She talked a mile a minute. She'd say I'm coming home for Thanksgiving, then in the next she was saying she's in the Matrix,' a reference to the science fiction movie. However, Erin Valenti's husband said she had no history of mental illness. 'There's never any history of anything like this, no mental health diagnosis, no hospitalization, no substance use, no arrests — as clear of a record as you can get. This is incredibly unlike her,' Harrison Weinstein said during the search. 'She is an extremely high achievement, successful person.
  • The Latest on the Tunisia presidential election (all times local): 8:10 p.m. Tunisian polling agencies are forecasting that conservative law professor Kais Saied has overwhelmingly won the North African country's presidential election. Saied's supporters exploded with joy, celebrating on the main boulevard of Tunis even though official results from Sunday's runoff vote aren't expected until Tuesday. It's only Tunisia's second democratic presidential election since it overthrew a dictator in the 2011 Arab Spring pro-democracy uprising. Polls carried in Tunisian media by Sigma Conseil and Emhrod Consulting forecast that Saied would come out on top with between 72% and 77% of the vote. Rival Nabil Karoui, who was in jail for most of the campaign, was projected to win between 23% and 27%. Saied, 61, is an independent outsider but is supported by moderate Islamist party Ennahdha, which won last week's parliamentary elections. He promised to hand more power to young people and local governments. The winner will inherit a country struggling to revive tourism, create jobs and stem Islamic extremism. ___ 8 a.m. Tunisians are voting for president in an unusual contest pitting a populist tycoon who just got out of jail against a law professor backed by resurgent Islamists. The winner of Sunday's runoff vote will inherit a North African country struggling to overcome corruption, unemployment and sporadic extremist violence. Tunisians are also trying to stabilize the democracy they built from their 2011 Arab Spring uprising. The election comes just four days after media mogul candidate Nabil Karoui was released from jail. He's facing money laundering and tax evasion charges that he calls politically driven. Karoui is running against conservative law professor Kais Saied, an independent supported by the Islamist party Ennahdha. Ennahdha won the parliamentary election on Oct. 6, followed by Karoui's Heart of Tunisia party.
  • Texas A&M's $75 million plan with Jimbo Fisher is stuck in neutral. The Aggies are 3-3 and out of the Top 25 for the first time this season after losing 47-28 at home to No. 1 Alabama. And while two of those losses have come against top-ranked teams, the Aggies appear no closer to emerging as a contender in the SEC West in Year 2 under Fisher than they were before. The schedule has been brutal and Saturday's crowd of 106,000-plus has so far been willing to follow Fisher's calls to 'trust the process,' but they eventually will expect to win some of those games, not just put up a good fight in a loss. Life in the SEC is tough, but that's what Texas A&M wanted when it made what former school President Bowen Loftin called the '100-year decision' to move from the Big 12. There are three teams from the state of Texas ranked in the AP Top 25 and Texas A&M isn't one of them. To be fair, with just six seniors, the Aggies have one of the youngest teams in the SEC and lost their two top running backs this season to injury. And they face a midseason stretch of four winnable games starting next week at Mississippi. But then they end the season with consecutive road trips at Georgia and LSU. Win one of those two at the end and the Aggies can claim progress. Lose them and Texas A&M is still spinning in circles. Fisher was left to lament missed opportunities against Alabama. Texas A&M led 7-0 after driving down the field to a touchdown on its first possession but quickly capitulated to trail 24-13 by halftime. 'We just got to learn to get over that hump, and we got to push through it. And against good people, you can't almost get there,' Fisher said. 'You've got to be all the way, executing on 100% of every play.' The Aggies arguably put up a better fight against a national title-winning Alabama team in Kyle Field two years ago when former coach Kevin Sumlin was getting pushed out and quarterback Kellen Mond was a freshman. Mond had a decent game Saturday with 264 yards passing and 90 rushing yards, with most of the latter piling up late when Alabama already had the game in hand. He ran for A&M's first touchdown and passed for two scores. 'I feel like we're headed in the right direction,' Mond said. 'You kind of look back at the games we lost and the games we've won, we definitely think we can play with every team.' Special teams problems highlighted another gap between the Aggies and the top of the SEC: the Tide's Jaylen Waddle ripped A&M for an average of 32 yards on four punt returns to go with his 31-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. Waddle, who is from Houston, was a player Fisher almost signed a couple of years ago, but he lost a hard-fought recruiting contest to his former mentor, Alabama's Nick Saban. Fisher is 0-3 against Saban and beating him may not happen until Fisher can keep Texas' best homegrown talent in the state. Alabama also blocked a punt for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to put a final stamp on another dominant victory. 'We win and lose as a team,' Fisher said. 'There's nothing that costs us a game, except our whole football team and our coaching staff. We're all in this together.' ___ More AP college football: https://apnews.com/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25
