Trevon Brown out for next game, Wil Baumann leads ACC in punting, MJ calls Obama hack golfer

RALEIGH, NC (NCSU) — One of the top performances turned in this season has been by senior punter Wil Baumann – a Ray Guy Award candidate for 2014. Baumann currently leads the ACC in punting average with 46.9 yards per punt – the fourth-best mark in the FBS and a mark that would rank second in ACC history if the season ended today.

Earlier this season, Baumann broke Austin Herbert’s career record for punts and now has 240 for his four-year career as a starter. On Oct. 4 at Clemson, he broke Herbert’s record for career punting yards and now boasts 9,738 – the ninth-best mark in ACC history.

**Note: Baumann is a Wilmington native and a graduate of Hoggard High.


GREENVILLE, NC (WWAY) — Former New Hanover wide receiver Trevon Brown has been ruled out for this weekend’s game against Temple. Brown recently injured his left knee. Brown has 14 receptions and 4 touchdowns for East Carolina.

LOUISVILLE, KY (AP) – Jameis Winston threw three touchdowns to offset a three-interception start and Dalvin Cook had two long scoring runs to help second-ranked Florida State rally for a 42-31 victory over Louisville 42-31 on Thursday night.

Florida State overcame a 21-0 deficit for its 24th straight victory, with Cook giving the Seminoles the lead with a 38-yard run with 3:46 remaining.

Out of sorts and on the verge of having its College Football Playoff prospects damaged, the Seminoles (8-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 2 CFP) recovered behind their Heisman Trophy quarterback and Cook, who had a 40-yard touchdown run in the third quarterback.

All of Winston’s TD passes were big. He hit Travis Rudolph for 68 yards, Ermon Lane for 47, and Freddie Stevenson for the 35-yard clincher with 26 seconds.

Winston was 25 of 48 for 401 yards to beat Louisville (6-3, 4-3, No. 25 CFP).

CLEVELAND (AP) – LeBron James struggled from the start in his first game with Cleveland in four years, and the New York Knicks ruined the megastar’s emotional homecoming with a 95-90 victory over the Cavaliers on Thursday night.

James, who returned to the Cavs and his native Ohio this summer after winning two NBA titles in Miami, finished with 17 points on 5-of-15 shooting. He also committed eight turnovers and never looked comfortable on a night when the entire city – and a star-studded crowd – celebrated his comeback.

Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points and buried a jumper with James in his face with 25 seconds left to give the Knicks a 92-87 lead.

Kyrie Irving scored 22 and Kevin Love added 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Cavs, who have some work to before they can start thinking about any titles.
