High School Football This Week Plus Rangers Swept in Oakland

The tune up games are all over for area high school football teams. After playing their final scrimmages this past weekend teams will take to the field to start the season. The opening week will be Thursday, August 31, and Friday, September 1 with non-district action.
The Dallas Cowboys ride the shoulders of backup quarterback, Cooper Rush, to come from behind to beat the Oakland Raiders, 24-20. Rush took over for Dak Prescott, completing 12/13 pass attempts for 115 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Cowboys general manager, Jerry Jones, stated Rush would not be waived when the team cuts the roster from 90 down to 53. Dallas will also be without Anthony Hitchens for the next eight weeks after the starting middle linebacker went down with a knee injury.
The Texas Rangers suffered a sweep at the hands of Oakland, losing the final game yesterday, 8-3. Shin-Soo Choo hit his 16th home run of the season. Despite the sweep, the Rangers are still only three games back in the American League Wildcard. Texas was scheduled to begin a series in Houston with the AL West leading Astros, but both teams have flown into Dallas where team officials are discussing how to proceed with the series.
And in the Northern Trust Tournament, Dustin Johnson pulls off a stunner to beat Jordan Spieth in a playoff.  Johnson rallied from five strokes down on the final five holes and takes home $1.6 million dollars.
And speaking of taking home money. Still, unbeaten, Floyd “Money” Mayweather wins over Connor McGregor in the 10th round by technical knock out. Mayweather is projected to cash out between $250-$300 million for the fight.  McGregor, bless his heart, will take home around $100 million.
