KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee defensive end Derek Barnett is downplaying the notion that Saturdays game at No. 8 Texas A&M represents an opportunity to show hes the nations top pass rusher.Barnett says he isnt concerned with measuring himself against Texas A&M star defensive end Myles Garrett. The Tennessee junior instead wants to make sure the ninth-ranked Volunteers (5-0, 2-0 SEC) maintain their momentum in this matchup of unbeaten teams.I play against the offense, so Ive just been watching film of the offensive guys, Barnett said. They have a great offense as well. Myles is a great ballplayer. I think it will be a fun game.It will be even more intriguing if Garrett is healthy enough to play for Texas A&M (5-0, 3-0). The 2015 Southeastern Conference sacks leader missed a 24-13 victory at South Carolina last week with a leg injury, and Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin has declined to provide an update on Garretts status.Garrett, also a junior, has 27 career sacks to lead all active Football Bowl Subdivision players. Barnett isnt far behind with 24. Barnett has 41+ tackles for loss, while Garrett has 38+.ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay ranks Garrett second and Barnett 16th among all draft-eligible players regardless of position. Rob Rang, a senior draft analyst for CBS Sports and nfldraftscout.com, ranks Garrett first overall and rates Barnett as a late first-round pick. Rang also lists Texas A&M defensive end Daeshon Hall as a potential second-round pick.(Barnetts) powerful at the point of attack, a very effective run defender as well as a pass rusher, Rang said. Hes a good football player. I just dont know that hes quite as athletic as the other two (Garrett and Hall). His production certainly speaks for itself, and the consistency throughout his career.Tennessee coach Butch Jones praises Garretts relentless approach and calls him a very, very dynamic football player. Tennessee offensive coordinator Mike DeBord adds that Garrett has got every move known to mankind.Sumlin is equally complimentary of Barnett.Hes a tremendous athlete, a tremendous football player, Sumlin said. You play a lot of guys in this league who are high-level pass rushers that have ability, that have talent. But I think what sets him apart, a lot like Myles Garrett, is production. Youve got the top two most productive pass rushers in college football over time in this game with him and Myles.Barnett has been at his best lately.In Tennessees SEC opener, Barnett recorded two sacks as the Volunteers rallied to beat Florida 38-28 . He posted two more sacks and forced an end-zone fumble that resulted in a touchdown in a 34-31 triumph at Georgia last week.Barnett believes he still has room for improvement.After every game, theres always something I can do better, he said. I didnt play my best game against Georgia. I was a little sloppy with my technique.Barnett has carried a defense that is missing three key players , with injuries sidelining linebackers Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Darrin Kirkland Jr. plus cornerback Cam Sutton. For much of his career, Barnett preferred to lead by example, but hes become more vocal this year.Everyone talks about his productivity on the field and being a great football player, and he deserves that, Jones said. But his leadership, I think, is one of the most untold stories or unsung things about this football team.Jones coached Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown at Central Michigan and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce at Cincinnati. He continually gives examples of how those players work habits in college helped them launch successful NFL careers. Jones says he expects to tell similar stories about Barnett for as long as Im in coaching.Jones calls Barnett a self-made person in every way, shape, form.When you graduate and leave our football program, youre going to want to come back here one day with your wife and your kids, Jones said. When you walk through these hallways, what are they going to say about you? How have you made the program better? Hes one of those individuals who will have an impacting impression on our football program for many years to come.---AP Sports Writer Kristie Rieken in College Station, Texas, contributed to this report.---Online:The APs college football page: http://collegfootball.ap.org Nike Air Max Belgie Kopen .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open.

Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct.

It was Yosts 62nd birthday on Friday, but he had to wait until Saturday morning to celebrate the Kansas City Royals 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins in 11 innings.It was the hat trick: three-hour, three-minute rain delay, 12-minute delay for a lights malfunction and extra innings.Guys pulled up a truck last night (Thursday) and they probably had too much to drink and they wanted me to go out and have a beer with them after the game, Yost said. I said, no guys. Im sorry. A (guy) said, Well, its my birthday. I said, good, happy birthday, mine is tomorrow. And they said really.Yost asked them how old he looks?They said, You look 50-51, Yost said. I said, OK, good. You guys go have a good time and stay out of trouble.Yost could have had a happier birthday if starter Edinson Volquez maintained a 4-1 lead in the fifth inning with three quick outs, which would have made it an official game. Instead, Volquez retired only one of the five batters he faced, and yielded three runs, three doubles and a single.The Royals have won six straight, equaling their longest winning streak of the season.Right-hander Ian Kennedy will start for the Royals on Saturday and the Twins will counter with left-hander Hector Santiago.Kennedy is 1-0 with a 0.95 ERA in his first three August starts. He has not won since June 26 at Kauffman Stadium.Santiago, who was acquired Aug. 1 from the Los Angeles Angels for Ricky Nolasco and Alex Meyer, is 0-3 with a 9.42 ERA in his first three Twinss starts.dddddddddddd Santiago has allowed 16 runs (15 earned) and 21 hits, including four home runs, three walks and a hit batter in 14 1/3 innings.The Royals beat up Santiago on Saturday at Target Field. He was pulled after four innings, surrendering seven runs and nine hits. With the bullpen worn out after five relievers were utilized in the extra-inning loss, Twins manager Paul Molitor is hoping Santiago can give them several innings.He said he will talk to pitching coach Neil Allen about who might not be available for Saturday. That would include right-hander Ryan Pressly, who required 45 pitches to get through two innings. Left-hander Taylor Rogers threw 23 pitches in 1 2/3 innings and is probably iffy.Ill have to talk to Neil and try to measure whos available and how much we can get from people, Molitor said. Theres going to be some people not available, so, come on, Hector.Molitor said they debated on sending Pressly out for another inning.I thought a little bit about tomorrow and Sunday, but we had a chance to win a game and if he was OK I was going to let him go out there, Molitor said. Sure enough, he had a long inning, some long at-bats, and he got up there past the 40s and I wanted to make sure he was OK.We were able to give him a few days rest prior to today, but he wanted that last hitter and he was able to get him out. That was a pick-me-up at the time for him to get through two for us. ' ' '
