Kennard on life after commiting to Duke

FRANKLIN -- Junior Luke Kennard has committed to Duke but that doesn't mean that things are starting to settle down for the Franklin standout. In fact, quite the opposite is true.
   Head coach Brian Bales says that Kennard is now working harder than he's ever seen before and the junior is working on flexibility as well as many other areas that you might not first think of to improve your on court game.
   Kennard is also getting autograph requests from all over the country but he's also been very generous with his time.Kennard on life after commiting to Duke

BLUE JACKETS-DUCKS

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Corey Perry and defenseman Sami Vatanen scored power-play goals in the first period, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 on Friday night for their seventh consecutive victory.

John Gibson, starting in net for the first time since losing 6-4 in his hometown of Pittsburgh on opening night, faced just 17 shots as the two-time defending Pacific Division champions improved to 7-1. Last season, the Ducks also won seven straight after a season-opening loss at Colorado.

Scott Hartnell had a power-play goal for the Blue Jackets and Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves.

Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf scored into an empty net with 2:27 remaining.

SOUTH FLORIDA-CINCINNATI

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Gunner Kiel threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score before hurting his ribs again, and Munchie Legaux took it from there Friday night, scoring a notable touchdown of his own while Cincinnati pulled away to a 34-17 victory over South Florida.

The Bearcats (4-3, 2-1 American Athletic) took advantage of the Bulls' many mistakes and got their second straight lopsided win. They also came away with more worries at quarterback.

Kiel has played the last five games with bruised ribs. He aggravated the injury on a scramble in the closing seconds of the first half, which finished with the Bearcats up 20-3.

The Bulls (3-5, 2-2) switched quarterbacks but couldn't pull off a second straight comeback. They had the biggest comeback in school history a week earlier, rallying from a 27-7 halftime deficit to a 38-30 win over Tulsa.

Legaux, who overcame a career-threatening knee injury early last season, had an emotional moment early in the fourth quarter. He ran 9 yards on his rebuilt left knee for his first touchdown since his comeback, slid on his knees at the back of the end zone and put his head on the ground, cradling the ball.

T25-OHIO ST-PENN ST

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A Beaver Stadium crowd of more than 100,000 will be wearing the dominant color of Penn State's iconic yet plain helmets when the Nittany Lions host No. 13 Ohio State on white-out night.

The place will be really loud. And that's just the way Buckeyes defensive end Joey Bosa likes it.

Bosa, one of the best pass-rushers and play-disrupters in the nation, says he plays better when he's in foreign territory and challenged by a raucous, partisan stadium.

The Nittany Lions (4-2, 1-2 Big Ten) are hoping to end a two-game skid on Saturday night. The Buckeyes (5-1, 2-0) might just be the hottest team at the college level right now, winning four in a row by an average score of 56-17.

BENGALS-GREEN

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Bengals receiver A.J. Green is expected to miss a pivotal AFC North game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday because of an injured right big toe.

The Pro Bowl receiver was listed as doubtful on Friday. He's missed the last two games with the injury, suffered during a season-opening win in Baltimore. The Ravens (5-2) can take control of the division with a win over the defending champion Bengals (3-2-1) at Paul Brown Stadium.

Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict was listed as probable with a strained neck. He's missed two games because of concussions.

Cornerback Leon Hall also was probable. He had to leave a 27-0 loss to Indianapolis last Sunday with a back injury.

RAIDERS-INJURIES

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- Oakland Raiders cornerback DJ Hayden could be activated from the physically unable to perform list in time for Sunday's game in Cleveland.

Hayden completed his second week of practice Friday but has yet to be fully cleared to play. The 12th overall pick in 2013, Hayden underwent foot surgery in the offseason -- his fourth operation since suffering a near-fatal heart injury in college.

Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano has been encouraged by Hayden's progress and noted the biggest hurdle the second-year cornerback needs to clear is conditioning.

The news isn't as encouraging for defensive end LaMarr Woodley and safety Usama Young. Both are expected to be placed on injured reserve before the winless Raiders play the Browns. Woodley has a biceps injury while Young is out due to a knee injury.
