Monday

Titans (4-2) 34 – Bills (4-2) 31

Derrick Henry scored his third touchdown with 3:05 left, and the Tennessee Titans stopped Josh Allen on a fourth-down quarterback sneak in the final seconds to beat Buffalo 34-31 on Monday night. That snapped the Bills’ four-game winning streak.

NCAA

On Monday, Washington State fired football coach Nick Rolovich and four of his assistants for refusing a state mandate that all employees get vaccinated against COVID-19. He is the first major college coach to lose his job because of vaccination status. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, had set a deadline of Monday for thousands of state employees, including the Cougars’ coach, to be vaccinated. Instead, according to Washington State athletic director Pat Chun, Rolovich applied for a religious exemption, denied Monday.

HIGH SCHOOL

Texas is poised to become the latest and most populous state to tighten restrictions on transgender athletes in public high school sports. On Sunday, state lawmakers approved a measure that requires transgender athletes to play on teams that align with the gender listed on their original birth certificate, not their current gender identity. The bill pushed by the Legislature’s Republican majority now goes to GOP Gov. Greg Abbott. They expect him to sign it into law.
