How much can BYU play up the underdog role heading to Pac-12 favorite Washington?

Kalani Sitake’s BYU players have become shoulder chip jockeys. The Cougars are fully engaged in playing that card, going at it carrying chips on their shoulders.

Sitake certainly has this as the platform to preach the us-against-the-world sermon this week. The Cougars are 17-point underdogs to Washington this Saturday in Seattle. Washington is not taking BYU lightly like Arizona and Wisconsin may have done in their own man caves. If Sitake is looking for any fodder for his sermons this… Read More

SALT LAKE CITY — Monday at Zions Bank Basketball Campus, the 2018-19 Utah Jazz reintroduced themselves in a friendly but perfunctory manner. Much as they like to say it’s a new year, with a different group, this edition is as familiar as an old tweed jacket.

With the only notable difference being Grayson Allen for Jonas Jerebko, it’s easy to envision similar results. True to form, Quin Snyder is taking nothing for granted. “Someone the other day said something about picking… Read More

A’s clinch final American League playoff spot, then beat Mariners

SEATTLE — Champagne flowed in the clubhouse as players bopped around and screamed in a wild celebration after the Oakland Athletics clinched their first playoff berth in four years. “It’s a lot of fun,” a soaked Khris Davis said. “We’re just trying to enjoy the moment. It’s a blast. We’ve been waiting for this day for a while. I feel so much excitement. It’s just a dream come true.” The surprising Athletics were assured no worse than an American League wild card Monday night when Tampa Bay lost to the New York Yankees. A few hours later, Oakland finished off a 7-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners behind Davis’ major… Read More
