    DALLAS -- Quinton Flowers passed for 195 yards and three touchdowns, rushed for 142 yards, and South Florida tied a program record for wins with a 35-27 victory over SMU on Saturday night. .South Florida (9-2, 4-1 American) held off a late charge from the Mustangs, who turned it over on downs with 1:25 left to play. SMU had fourth-and-1 at the Bulls 14, but Braeden West, who carried 29 times for 120 yards, was stopped short of the line to gain.The Bulls have won nine games three times in previous seasons, most recently in 2007.Flowers threw touchdown passes of 77 and 65 yards on the Bulls first plays of the first and second halves, respectively. His 77-yard hookup with Marquez Valdes-Scantling was on the games opening play, and the 65-yard connection to Tyrell McCants gave South Florida a 28-14 lead with 13:40 left in the third quarter.McCants finished with three catches for 105 yards and two scores.Courtland Sutton set a program single-game record with 252 yards receiving for SMU (5-6, 2-3). He caught 13 passes, two for touchdowns. . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. . Third-seeded Murray had the easiest path to victory on New Years Eve, barely breaking a sweat during his 6-0, 6-0 win over 2,129th-ranked Qatari wildcard recipient Mousa Shanan Zayed. . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. Nottinghamshire 38 for 2 trail Yorkshire 282 (Hodd 96*, Rafiq 74) by 244 runsScorecard Even in this age of cash and context, the Scarborough Festival still takes place but its nature has changed. For evidence of this one had only to glance at the Division One table before this match or observe the admirable Steven Mullaneys reactions as he ran out Adam Lyth and took three vital wickets on the games opening morning.Mullaney reckons his team may need three more wins to avoid relegation; meanwhile, near the top of Division One, Yorkshire are 26 points behind Middlesex and this is their game in hand.So a great deal may depend on the result of this seemingly festal cricket match. There could therefore have been few better times for Andy Hodd to make 96 not out, his best score for Yorkshire, or for Azeem Rafiq to help him add 132 for the seventh wicket. Their partnership revived a side whose top-order batting remains very flaky and it snuffed out any Nottinghamshire hopes that they would seize a decisive early advantage.The crowd is wrapped up in it all at Scarborough, too. As at most outgrounds, with North Marine Road and Cheltenham the grandest of the genre, they are closer to the action and their joys are thus plainer than they might be when expressed from half way up a tiered concrete mountain. Their disappointment could also be touched when Whitby-born Lyth was run out at the bowlers end, Mullaney tipping a fierce drive from Alex Lees on to the stumps and wheeling away in glee like a boy who had snagged an apple.The concern of most of the 5000 folk in the ground turned to plain worry half an hour later as Yorkshire slipped helplessly to 36 for 4. Lees and Jake Lehmann both edged catches in the slips when failing to cover Mullaneys movement on a heavy morning and Gary Ballance was leg before to an inswinger from Luke Fletcher.Then it all got worse for Yorkshire as Tim Bresnan was lbw when playing no shot and Jack Leaning was caught at second slip by Patel when playing a rotten one. These dismissals sent the North Marine Road diehards into a rumble of discontent and understandably so. Bresnan, normally the shrewdest of cricketers, fell to Mullaneys umpteenth inswinger of the morning while Leaning played the sort of stroke he might favour when giving his team mates their morning catching practice.This latter limpness was particularly ill-timed, given that Leaning, like Rafiq, had been presented with his first-team cap by the club president John Hampshire 20 minutes before play began. In the old days the former Yorkshire skipper, Brian Sellers, might have advocated that same cap being depetalled at tea. The current Director of Cricket, Martyn Moxon, may have to settle for a bollocking.As it turned out, 51 for 6 represented Yorkshires lowest point of the day, just as it may yet be viewed as Nottinghamshires best moment of the whole match as Rafiq and Hodd countered. Rafiq hit five boundaries before lunch with a clip square off Brett Hutton offering a portent of his later aggression. Hodd also started as he meant to go on, working his three fours to third man or long leg.In the afternoon, they strengthened the recovery. Rafiq drove Hutton through the leg side for successive fours and went to his fifty off 75 balls. Hodd played the supporting role to perfection, plainly realising that this was a day on which every run was precious.It was Nottinghamshires spinners who eventually made the breakthrough, Patel being a trifle fortunate to have Rafiq lbw when the ball seemed to be straying down leg and Imran Tahir dismissing Patterson in similar but less controversial manner. By now, though, Reads bowlers had lost their grip and every fielding error was chi-iked by the crowd at the Peasholm Park End.Jack Brooks only improved the crowds mood during his 66-ball 48, an innings which included seven fours and a hooked six off Mullaney which rather symbolised the changed balance of the game. Hodd again took his cue from his partner, a strange and flattering position for Brooks to occupy but one which he probably rather enjoyed. And Yorkshires No 10 was only five short of his best first-class score of 53 when he cut a ball from Brett Hutton onto his stumps, leaving Hodd to negotiate his way to three figures with Ryan Sidebottom for company.A couple of singles took the Yorkshire wicketkeeper to within a boundary of his goal but Sidebottom propped forward to Hutton in a manner which proved to be nothing like as reliable as it used to be in the days before DRS. Hodd took a standing ovation from the crowd as he ran off to get ready to keep wicket.As is so often the case, late resistance, such as Brooks and Hodds 88-run stand, helped to take early wickets. Jake Libby was lbw for a first-ball nought to Brookss first delivery of the innings and Tom Moores, who was making his Nottinghamshire debut, nicked Bresnan to Lyth at slip in the final over of the day. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From ChinaWholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
