The World Series was slipping away from the San Francisco Giants. A botched grounder led to a three-run deficit, and they were in danger of falling behind the Kansas City Royals three games to one. Pablo Sandoval's single set up Hunter Pence to score the tying run in the fifth inning and the 2012 Series MVP followed with a go-ahead, two-run single in the sixth that sent the Giants surging past the Kansas City Royals 11-4 Saturday night at pulsating AT&T Park. The Series is tied at two games apiece, ensuring the title will be decided at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium next week.

Bo Wallace wasn't about to play it safe - not even in Death Valley. The bold but risky decision ended any hope No. 3 Mississippi may have had about its first unblemished record in more than half a century. Wallace's pass was intercepted by LSU safety Ronald Martin at the 1 with 2 seconds left, and the Rebels fell 10-7 to the 24th-ranked Tigers on Saturday night. ''One-on-one, threw it up - done.'' Coach Hugh Freeze said he called for a safer throw to the sideline to set up a possible tying field goal.

Visor-wearing innovators Steve Spurrier and Gus Malzahn engaged in a chess match. South Carolina's Dylan Thompson and No. 5 Auburn's Nick Marshall swapped big plays. The two compelling duels weren't settled until the final play in the Tigers' 42-35 victory over Spurrier's gambling Gamecocks on Saturday night. Marshall ran for three touchdowns and passed for another score and Jonathan Jones picked off two fourth-quarter passes in the end zone, including the game-ender.

Lane Kiffin figured out a winning strategy for his return to Knoxville. Throw the ball to Amari Cooper early and often. Cooper caught nine passes, scored two touchdowns and set an Alabama school game record with 224 yards receiving to help the No. 4 Crimson Tide beat Tennessee 34-20 on Saturday night for its eighth consecutive victory in the series. Cooper's big performance produced a triumphant return for Kiffin, the Alabama offensive coordinator who coached Tennessee in 2009 and angered Volunteers fans by leaving for Southern California after only one season.

Army football players lured prospective recruits with an alcohol-fueled bus trip earlier this year, and 20 cadets, two officers and two coaches have been disciplined, according to a report in The Gazette of Colorado Springs. Military Academy at West Point, New York, self-reported a recruiting violation to the NCAA, the newspaper said (http://bit.ly/1wtwPYc ). West Point spokeswoman Theresa Brinkerhoff said the academy didn't publicly detail the incident because it was handled ''administratively.'' The academy was warned by the NCAA earlier this month, according to the paper's report. Football coaches knew about the party but did not immediately tell academy leaders or the NCAA, her report said.

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has signed a seven-year extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth $98 million, making McCoy the highest-paid player at his position. McCoy, a 2013 All-Pro, will get $51.5 million guaranteed, the most ever given to a defensive tackle in NFL history. The deal was concluded Saturday by McCoy's agent, Ben Dogra, and Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht. ''Gerald is extremely excited to remain with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is especially thankful to Bucs owners, coaches, and Jason Licht for working so hard throughout the process,'' Dogra said.


No. 10 TCU gets record-setting 82-27 rout of Tech (Yahoo Sports)

Trevone Boykin took issue with coach Gary Patterson saying he was among the TCU players who weren't ready to play Texas Tech. Boykin threw a school-record seven touchdown passes and the 10th-ranked Horned Frogs showcased a new fast-paced offense by scoring the most points in their history in an 82-27 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday. These are one of the teams we haven't beaten in the Big 12, and it was just time to pay those guys back.'' The Horned Frogs (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) topped their previous scoring high of 69 in the spread attack directed in part by co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie, a former Texas Tech quarterback who spent the past four seasons as an assistant at his alma mater.

Mississippi State's recent slugfests with Kentucky have taught the Bulldogs that there's no such thing as a safe lead against the Wildcats. Prescott accounted for three touchdowns, Robinson rushed for two TDs and No. 1 Mississippi State (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) held on to beat Kentucky 45-31 on Saturday. ''I am very happy with the way our guys played today in a tough environment against Kentucky, which is a very good football team that gave us everything out there,'' Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said after a win that wasn't truly decided until Holmes' 61-yard kickoff return for the clinching touchdown with 2:22 remaining.

Detroit defensive tackle C.J. Mosley was sent home from London on Saturday and suspended by the Lions for an unspecified violation of team rules. Detroit says in a release that Mosley engaged in detrimental conduct and is suspended for two weeks. The Lions face the Atlanta Falcons in London on Sunday, then Detroit has a weekend off.

Charles Warner says Greene was charged with driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, failure to stop/halt/frisk and illegal parking. Greene was released on $2,000 bond.

Tennessee Titans running back Shonn Greene was arrested in a suburban Nashville community for allegedly parking in a handicapped space and speeding away in his luxury car as an officer was issuing a citation. Greene surrendered to police Friday night after being told warrants had been obtained for his arrest, said police Sgt. Charles Warner in Franklin, Tennessee. The matter could have been ended with a simple parking ticket, but now Greene faces multiple charges, Warner added. ''This whole thing could have been avoided if Greene would have simply left that handicapped parking space available for whom it was intended,'' Warner said.
