Ken Griffey Jr. has a different game to watch during the World Series.The newly inducted member of the Baseball Hall of Fame can certainly be forgiven for having his attention elsewhere Saturday night. His son is a starting receiver for the Arizona Wildcats.Juniors son Trey isnt the only Pac-12 receiver whose dad played Major League Baseball. And there are three starting quarterbacks in the Big 12 Conference who are the sons of former MLB players.While the World Series is being played, here are some MLB connections to college football:- SHANE BUECHELE, Texas, freshman quarterback.Son of STEVE BUECHELE, who played for three teams over 11 MLB seasons (1985-95).Shane is the only true freshman quarterback ever to start the first two games of a season for the Longhorns. When he made his college debut Sept. 4 against Notre Dame, his dad, the bench coach for the Texas Rangers, was excused from a game to be there.Steve, a third baseman who roomed with John Elway at Stanford, played 889 of his 1,334 MLB games with the Rangers (1985-91 and 1995). He got traded to Pittsburgh in 1991 and played in the NLCS that fall with the Pirates. He also played four years for the Cubs.- TREY GRIFFEY, Arizona, senior wide receiver.Son of KEN GRIFFEY JR., who played for three teams over 22 MLB seasons (1989-2010).Instead of highlight catches in the outfield, Trey has 17 receptions for 305 yards and a touchdown this season. His 17.9 yards per catch leads the Wildcats.Junior, inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame earlier this year, was a 13-time All-Star center fielder who won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves (1990-99). He hit 630 home runs in his career, including a game in September 1990 when he and his father hit back-to-back homers while playing together for Seattle.- KENNY HILL, TCU, junior quarterback.Son of KEN HILL, who played for seven teams over 14 MLB seasons (1988-2001).The younger Hill succeeded Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and had a single-game school record 511 yards passing in his first start. He later transferred to TCU, where after having to sit out last season he is now second in the Big 12 with 357 total yards a game.Ken Hill was a National League All-Star in 1994 with the Montreal Expos, when the right-handed pitcher had 16 wins in the strike-shortened season the year his son was born. Hill pitched in the 1995 World Series for the Cleveland Indians, then threw seven complete games for the Rangers the next season when they won their first AL West title.- TORII HUNTER JR., Notre Dame, senior wide receiver.Son of TORII HUNTER, who played for three teams over 19 MLB seasons (1997-2015).Hunter, who has also played baseball at Notre Dame, has 25 catches for 360 yards and a touchdown in six games this season for the Fighting Irish. A team captain, he missed a game after a concussion suffered on a helmet-to-helmet hit during the season opener at Texas.The elder Hunter, who retired from baseball only a year ago, was a five-time All-Star outfielder who won nine Gold Gloves. He went to the playoffs eight times with three teams (Minnesota Twins, Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers). He was a .277 career hitter and had 353 homers.- PATRICK MAHOMES, Texas Tech, junior quarterback.Son of PAT MAHOMES, who played for six teams over 11 MLB seasons (1992-97, 1999-2003).Mahomes was an eye-popping 52-of-88 passing in his last game against No. 16 Oklahoma, matching the FBS record with 734 yards passing and breaking the total offense mark with 819. He is the national leader with 473 yards passing a game, nearly 100 more than the next-closest player. He gave up baseball last spring to concentrate solely on football.Right-hander Pat Mahomes was 42-39 with a 5.47 ERA in 308 career games (63 starts) for the Twins, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Rangers, Cubs and Pirates. He was part of the 1999 NL playoffs with the Mets.- DANTE PETTIS, Washington, junior wide receiver/punt returner.Son of GARY PETTIS, who played for four teams over 11 MLB seasons (1982-92).Dante shares Washingtons career record with four punt returns for touchdowns. He has 27 catches for 457 yards this season for the fourth-ranked and undefeated Huskies, and his eight receiving touchdowns are tied for second in the Pac 12.Gary, now the third base coach for the Houston Astros, was a five-time Gold Glove outfielder with 354 career stolen bases.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Thomas Vanek Sabres Jersey . Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute.

He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State coach Bryan Harsin hasnt hesitated to call for featured running back Jeremy McNichols to get the ball 40 times in a game.On Friday night, Harsin found hes got another talented running back in Alex Mattison. And hes only a freshman.McNichols ran for 158 yards and two touchdowns, Mattison had a career-high 100 yards rushing on 18 carries and one touchdown, and No. 24 Boise State beat San Jose State 45-31.The Broncos (8-1, 4-1) had two players over 100 yards on the ground in one game for the first time since Nov. 8, 2014, against New Mexico.(Giving Mattison more carries) was predetermined on our part, Harsin said. We knew he was ready for his opportunity. But its not just about running the ball. Its also about being able to protect the quarterback in different looks.McNichols cant carry the ball like he has every single game. Were trying to spread the wealth a little big among those guys.San Jose State (3-7, 2-4), looking to get consecutive wins for the first time this season, finished with 495 yards of offense behind Kenny Potters 23-of-36 passing for 278 yards.After suffering a gut-wrenching loss last week to Wyoming on a safety in the waning minutes of the game, Boise State looked sluggish in the first quarter as it held a 7-6 lead.However, the Broncos got the spark they needed with a little razzle dazzle. On fourth-and-12 from their 37, Broncos punter Sean Wale took the snap and raced 29 yards for a first down.Finally after four years, I had a chance to do something so I had to make the most of it, Wale said. It was my one chance to shine, and I certainly wasnt sliding. But I didnt really know what to do once I got into the open field.Three plays later, Mattison scored on a 19-yard run to extend Boise States lead to 14-6.It couldve been a stop on downs for us if wed been able to make the play, Spartans coach Ron Caragher said. But we didnt and it changed the momentum of the game.I was very proud of this teams response after last weeks loss, Harsin said. We have to stay focused on what we can control and try to go out and play our best each and every week.San Jose State kept the pressure on Booise State, edging within 14-13 with 10 minutes remaining in the first half.dddddddddddd But that was as close as the Spartans would get as the Broncos took control of the game.Boise State learned a powerful lesson last week, and they got back to running the football and controlling the line of scrimmage behind their big offensive line, Caragher said.Boise State, which finished with 517 total yards of offense, had a season-high 298 yards rushing. McNichols performance was his seventh 100-plus yard game this season and fourth in a row.Malik Roberson led the Spartans on the ground with 109 yards and a touchdown, his second 100-yard game of the season.TAKEAWAYSSan Jose State: The loss squelched the Spartans chances of becoming bowl eligible, but they still have a chance to finish strong after a 1-5 start. Their final two opponents, Air Force and Fresno State, have combined for only two conference wins.Boise State: The Broncos no longer control their own fate in the Mountain division, but the victory keeps their hopes alive. They still need either Wyoming to lose two games or New Mexico to win out to win the division.UP NEXTSan Jose State: The Spartans take a week off before returning home to host Air Force on Nov. 19.Boise State: The Broncos will take travel to Hawaii next Saturday in a conference tilt.POLL IMPLICATIONSBoise State lost 11 spots in the poll last week after losing to Wyoming but shouldnt fall any farther this week. However, San Jose State isnt an opponent thats likely to greatly improve the Broncos standing among voters either.WALE OF A QUOTEWale was proudly showing off a big bruise on his right arm in the post-game press conference that he received when he was tackled on the fake punt play that resulted in a first down. However, he admitted he wouldnt want to get tackled every week like that. I respect those guys who get hit like that. I couldnt do it. I got a little bruise. Ill probably be at treatment tomorrow and get right.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
