Lions Win Again Plus Cowboys Look To Win East In Today’s Sports

The Texas A&M University-Commerce women’s basketball team defeated Northeastern State 76-54. The Lions took control midway through the first quarter and ran away with the contest. The win brings the Lions to 5-4 on the season and gives them their first winning streak of the year.

The Dallas Stars will be getting some much-needed help tonight. Defenseman John Klingberg will return from a broken hand and a six-week absence as the Stars host Chicago. This is the first time since Oct. 30 that Klingberg, Tyler Seguin, Alexander Radulov, and Jamie Benn have all been in the lineup together.

As the Cowboys prepare for the Tampa Bay Bucs this Sunday, five players were named to the NFC pro bowl roster. RB Ezekiel Elliott, OT Tyron Smith, G Zack Martin, DE DeMarcus Lawrence, and CB Byron Jones will be on the roster. The Cowboys can wrap up the NFC East with a win on Sunday.

And the Mavs are in LA tonight to face the Clippers.

In the DXL Frisco Bowl last night, San Diego State was shut out by Ohio 27-0. Only one bowl game on tap for tonight, it’s the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl from Tampa, which features Marshall vs. South Florida at 7:00 pm on ESPN.

Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman is signing with the Oakland Raiders. Peterman will join the practice squad. AJ McCarron’s wife had a baby on Wednesday, so the Raiders need another quarterback if McCarron can’t be at Monday night’s game against the Denver Broncos. In that case, Peterman would be promoted to the active roster.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will not play Sunday against Atlanta and is expected to be shut down for the final two games as he continues to deal with a sore throwing shoulder. Panthers general manager Marty Hurney confirmed Wednesday that Newton will be inactive for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. Backup Taylor Heinicke will start and will be backed up by Kyle Allen.

North Carolina’s Roy Williams isn’t retiring anytime soon, it seems. Williams has signed an eight-year extension. The contract will keep Williams on the sideline through the 2027-28 season. If Williams, who also signed a new personal services contract with Nike, stays for the duration of his new deal, he’ll be 77 in its final year. Williams has led the Tar Heels to three national titles (2005, 2009, 2017) and five Final Fours. He’s won the ACC title eight times.
