Rams hold off 49ers The Rams got back on the winning track with a hard fought victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The offense was clicking with Jarod Goff passing for over 300 yards and three touch- downs. Running back Todd Gurley had his best game of the year while Jim Ferguson rushing for Columnist 113 yards. Two Rams wide receiv- ers, Robert Woods and newly acquired Sammy Watkins, each went over 100 yards on six recep- tions and Watkins found the end zone twice. The outcome wasn't secured until the Rams stopped the 49ers on their two-point conversion attempt and came out with a 41-39 victory. The Rams head to Dallas next to take on the Cowboys. Chargers couldn't sap Hunt's energy Quarterback Alex Smith's determined the outcome of the Chargers and Chiefs with two quick touchdown passes in the first quarter. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt posted 172 yards rush- ing in the game with a 69-yard dash late in the fourth quarter that squelched any hopes of the Chargers to register their first victory of the season. Philip River, s the usually accurate quarterback, had one of his worst first halves throwing three interceptions. The Chargers now stand 0-3 and have not attracted a fan base that will support them in their transition from San Diego. Up next are the Philadelphia Eagles who are 2-1 and journey to StubHub for the Sunday game. Trojans too hot to handle USC flexed their muscles in the second half and put together 30-20 victory over the Cal Bears. The teams were tied at 13 at the half and then USC scored three times in the fourth quarter and pulled away for the win. USC plays the undefeated Washington State Cougars on Friday night in Pullman, Washington. The Cougars are a highflying act and can put up a lot of points on the scoreboard in a hurry. Weather conditions can also be a factor as an early fall chill could cool down the hot Trojans. Stanford runs over UCLA The UCLA Bruins got knocked out of its rhythm by the Stanford Cardinals in Palo Alto last week. t On Sports With Jim Ferguson What was a fairly close game at the half got sideways with the relentless running game of Stanford. Bryce Love, the new work- horse for the Cardinals gained 263 yards on the ground, which, took the team to over 400 yards rushing for the game. Josh Rosen of the Bruins launch 60 passes and connected on 40 of them for 480 yards. Stanford continued its histori- cal dominance over the Bruins as the with their 13th consecutive victory over the Bruins. The final score was 58 to 34. In other PAC 12 action the resurgent Arizona State Sun Devils stopped the 24th ranked Oregon Ducks in Tempe, Arizona by the score of 37 to 35. This ended a 10-year winning streak for the Ducks. To put into perspective the Angels as of this writing have lost one more game than they have won. The Dodgers have won 42 more games than they have lost, hence the playoffs for the Dodgers and better luck next year for the Angels. The Los Angeles Chargers could not come up with an answer for the Kansas City Chiefs. The team struggled to get past an impressive Chiefs defensive secondary and couldn't quell the efforts of its offen- sive players like Kareem Hunt, who ran rampant and posted 172 yards in rushing.

The boys in blue captured their fifth consecutive National League Western Division title. They are a lock to win at least 100 games in regular season play. The last time the team accom- plished such a feat was over 40 years ago. Hopefully they have figured out their bullpen and can main- tain leads and play all through the month of October. Angels lose shot at the postseason The Angels had a chance for postseason play but went on a six game losing streak this past week and their chances went out the door. Todd Gudey II went absolutely wild at last week's Thursday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers. His 113 yards rushing and three total touchdowns helped the Los Angeles Rams secure its second victory of the season. Doubly impressive is the fact that the Rams won on a road game.
