Some things to watch in Week 3 in the Big Ten. Wholesale Soccer Jerseys .GAME OF THE WEEKNo. 3 Ohio State travels to No. 14 Oklahoma for a matchup of teams expected to challenge for spots in the College Football Playoff and the two most storied teams in the history of the Top 25. The Buckeyes have averaged 62.5 points through two games, their defense has yet to allow a touchdown and the program has won a nation-leading 18 straight road games. Time to see what the young Buckeyes can do in a hostile environment. The once-beaten Sooners probably can afford no more losses if they want to play in a national semifinal for the second year in a row. In his seven home games, Baker Mayfield has completed 69 percent of his passes and thrown for 20 TDs against two interceptions. This time hell be going against the highest-ranked team to visit Norman since 2008.BEST MATCHUPThe Oregon offense against the Nebraska defense in a measuring-stick game for both teams. The Ducks offense has been extremely sharp, averaging 577 yards against overmatched opponents with new quarterback Dakota Prukop and running back Royce Freeman leading the way. Nebraskas defense appears greatly improved from 2015 with its veteran linebackers and a Nate Gerry-led secondary that intercepted five passes last week against Wyoming. If the defensive line can be disruptive, Prukop and the Ducks could be in for a tussle in Lincoln.INSIDE THE NUMBERSWinless Northwestern, which hosts Duke, hasnt started 0-3 since 1992. ...North Dakota State, which visits Iowa , has won five in a row against FBS opponents since 2010 and is 8-3 all-time against teams from the top tier. ... Penn State is 12-0-1 all-time at home against Temple. The Nittany Lions last year lost for the first time in 40 meetings with the Owls. ... Rutgers, which hosts New Mexico, has outscored its first two opponents 27-0 in the fourth quarter and 48-14 in the second half. ... Illinois is averaging four sacks a game, and Carroll Phillips is tied for the FBS lead with 6.5 tackles for loss. ... Marylands Perry Hills enters his game at UCF completing a Big Ten-best 73 percent of his passes.LONG SHOTMichigan State visits Notre Dame for the 50th anniversary of the 1966 Game of the Century tie, and for the Spartans to win they must be much sharper than they were in a 28-13 season-opening victory over FCS Furman. The touchdown-underdog Spartans are coming off a rare early open date, and theres been an all-Irish, all-the-time focus for two weeks. QB Tyler OConnor shouldnt be fazed by the stage. He started in Ohio Stadium for an injured Connor Cook last year and beat the Buckeyes. OConnor gives the Spartans their best chance if he can take advantage of a vulnerable Notre Dame secondary.PLAYER TO WATCHNorthwestern QB Clayton Thorson, if he can get some blocking from his offensive line, will determine whether the Wildcats bounce back from an 0-2 start or see their season spin out of control. Thorsons late fumble cost the Wildcats in the opener Western Michigan, and he was just 17 of 41 in the embarrassing loss to FCS Illinois State. The onus on Thorson is even greater if star RB Justin Jackson is slow to come off his lower-body injury. Cheap Nike Soccer Jerseys . Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. Soccer Jerseys Sale . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. http://www.chinajerseyssoccer.com/ .

"This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said.Niall Quinn believes winning the FA Cup is Louis van Gaals only hope of keeping his job at Manchester United - and even that probably wont be enough. The Sky Sports pundit was speaking after watching Tuesday nights 3-1 win over Bournemouth; a result which confirmed United will finish fifth and miss out on Champions League football for the second time in three seasons.Van Gaal was booed by sections of Old Trafford when he addressed the crowd at the end of the match and Quinn says he will definitely be shown the door if he doesnt end his second season in charge with a win over Crystal Palace at Wembley on Saturday. He has shown determination and grit to at least bring the next trophy in to Old Trafford, he told Sky Sports.But whether hell get time with the fans Im not so sure. I guess he will go into the FA Cup final knowing its an absolute must game for him if hes to have any hope at all of carrying on.His fate is in other peoples hands now and Im surprised its come to that. When he got this job I though he was the type of strong character that Manchester United needed. Is he the person to suddenly change it around? I would have to say, hand on heart, no. Its too much of an ask now. Niall Quinn But whats gone out of Manchester United is the fear. Other clubs always feared them when you played them home and away and over the last three years its been unbelievable.I didnt think in all my time in football that I would come to Old Trafford knowing that the away team probably fancied their chances. Theres something systematic thats gone wrong over the period of time.Is he the person to suddenly change it around? I would have to say, hand on heart, no. Its too much of an ask now. Louis van Gaal reflects on Manchester Uniteds 3-1 win against Bournemouth Quinn expects United to win the FA Cup and says that could prompt the board to give Van Gaal another chance.

Louis van Gaal addresses the crowd following Manchester Uniteds 3-1 win against Bournemouth I think youve two things going on here. You have the football side of the club which wants to continue and give their managers time. Theyve built dynasties here in the past.Then you have the commercial people involved and their view would be that they need to energise the football club again from the very top to carry on the commercial goals with no Champions League football. Watch the moment Wayne Rooney scored his 100th Premier League goal at Old Trafford Do you think they can win the title next year and the year after that win the Champions League in the current set-up in the direction the current manager is bringing them on?Thats the question the football people have to answer. They really need to get this decision right. This is a massive decision. Also See: WATCH: LVG speech booed When will Man Utds season start? Man Utd 3-1 Bournemouth Jose Mourinho latest ' ' '
