PITTSBURGH -- A year ago, James Conner spent the days before Thanksgiving wondering what was wrong with him. The answer came in the form of a cancer diagnosis that sent the Pittsburgh running back through months of debilitating treatment that threatened his blossoming career.Its all behind him now. All of it. And that -- more than the records hes breaking at an alarming rate -- is what matters. Its why Conner didnt get wrapped up in his own hype after his pair of touchdowns in Pitts easy 56-14 romp over Duke on Saturday made him the leading career touchdown scorer in Atlantic Coast Conference history.When I take the field, I put cancer and everything behind me and just play, said Conner, who left briefly after tweaking his right ankle in the second quarter but returned for the second half. Im getting better every week.So are the Panthers (7-4, 4-3 ACC), who showed no signs of a letdown after stunning Clemson last week. Conner, as is his wont, led the way. He bulled over from 1 yard in the first quarter and again in the third to give him 50 rushing touchdowns for his career, breaking the previous mark set by N.C. States Ted Brown between 1975 and 1978. Conner now has 53 touchdowns in all, eclipsing the old ACC mark of 52 set by Wali Lundy of Virginia from 2002-05.Asked if any of them stand out over the others and Conner pointed to his 20-yard sprint in the fourth quarter against the Tigers, the one that put Pitt in position to pull off one of the biggest upsets in the programs recent history.Everything Ive been through and me working on getting in a rhythm, my endurance playing 60 minutes of football, Conner said, it showed I can play 60 minutes of football at a high level, late in the game, Conner said.For once such theatrics werent necessary for Pitt. Not with Conner running for 101 yards. Not with Quadree Henderson returning a punt 65 yards for a score and adding another on a 52-yard jet sweep. Not with Nate Peterman throwing for three scores in the wind at wintry Heinz Field as the Panthers set a new school record with 432 points on the season.It was a good, comfortable win, Conner said. Weve got to finish out the season strong.A DUD FOR THE BLUE DEVILSDaniel Jones completed 28 of 46 for 248 yards and a touchdown but Duke (4-7, 1-6) did little downfield against the nations 127th-ranked pass defense. The Panthers sacked Jones five times, including two by senior defensive end Ejuan Price. After going over 200 yards on the ground in each of their last three games, the Blue Devils managed just 25 yards rushing against Pitt.They won the execution battle and thats why the score is so lopsided, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. We also lost the kicking game. It wasnt our intention coming in, but we just got whipped.RESPECTHendersons zig-zag punt return in the third quarter put the Panthers up 42-14 and marked his fourth kick return for a score this year, tops in the nation. The Blue Devils found one way to keep it from Henderson, having Jones do a quick kick on a fourth-down later in the third quarter.I was sitting off to the sideline, waiting for (the snap) and he just kicked, Henderson said with a laugh. Definitely a sign of respect. I appreciate it.THE TAKEAWAYDuke: The only chance the Blue Devils have of making a fifth straight bowl game will be with a win at Miami next week and hope there arent enough 6-6 teams to fill the bowl slots.Pitt: While the defense is hardly stout, the Panthers have become opportunistic of late. An early fumble recovery by linebacker Matt Galambos on Dukes first play set up a touchdown and helped the Panthers set the tone. Pitt later turned a fumbled Duke kickoff return into another score.UP NEXTDuke: travels to Miami in the regular season finale. The Hurricanes stunned the Blue Devils 30-27 last season, winning on the final play during a 75-yard kickoff return for a touchdown that featured eight laterals. The ACC ended suspending officials for two games following a series of officiating errors during the return.Pitt: will try to continue its mastery of Syracuse. The Panthers have won 10 of their last 11 against the Orange, including all three meetings since the schools joined the ACC in 2013.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .

VaporMax Outlet . Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. After rolling to an easy victory Friday night over Washington State, the next test for Creighton at the Paradise Jam tournament will be a bit more challenging.The No. 22 Bluejays will play North Carolina State on Sunday in the semifinals of the eight-team tournament at St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.There was no letdown by Creighton (3-0) en route to its 103-77 victory over Washington State three nights after an upset of No. 9 Wisconsin.Creighton led 25-12 and 38-22 in the first half before taking a 60-36 halftime lead. Cole Huff led the Bluejays with a season-high 19 points while Kansas State transfer Marcus Foster and 7-foot freshman center Justin Patton finished with 16 and 10 points, respectively.The 3-point game was working for the Jays as they made 15 of 27 shots from beyond the arc. Foster (4-of-5) and Huff (4-of-6) led the way, and Isaiah Zierden was 2-for-4 on his way to scoring eight points.All 14 of the players who suited up for Creighton scored at least two points against thhe 2-1 Cougars.ddddddddddddOne player the Bluejays need to focus on in Sundays matchup with the Wolfpack (3-0) is Abdul-Malik Abu. The 6-foot-8 junior led N.C. State in its first round 85-72 comeback victory over Montana with 25 points, while freshman Dennis Smith Jr. added 21 points.Montana led 40-38 at halftime and the game was still tied with less than 13 minutes to play. When the Wolfpack went on a 20-8 run, Abu had nine of N.C. States points.If the Bluejays can force Abu, Smith and N.C. States other top scorers into taking quicker, less effective shots, Creighton proved it can be a force on the boards in the win over Washington State.After getting outrebounded 42-27 in the win over Wisconsin, Creighton won the battle of the boards 39-33 over the Cougars. Huff led the way with six rebounds while Martin Krampelj and Ronnie Harrell Jr. had five apiece.
