Saturday, CFB, Golf, Davis Cup

Oh what a Saturday, golf from the Fed Ex Tour Championship, CFB and Davis Cup tennis action!  Too much to write about in one post…follow me on my twitter account..Susan W. Shaver@survivingpara!

Golf..After day three, Billy Horschel and Rory Mcilroy are the leaders at -9 (Rory coming back from two strokes behind).  Horschel has shot rounds of 66, 66, and 69.  Mcilroy has rounds of 69, 65, and 67.  In second alone, Jim Furyk at -7.  Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, and Justin Rose are in third at -6.  Atlanta native Chris Kirk is at -5.  Final round tomorrow!

Davis Cup tennis news..France advances into the final and awaits the winner of Switzerland vs. Italy.  Federer decided to sit out the doubles today, and Switzerland lost in five sets to Italy.  So…tomorrow the maestro will have the chance to seal the deal for the Swiss against F. Fognini and send them into the Davis Cup final.  GO FED!  Coverage begins very early tomorrow, 6:00 am EST on Tennis Channel.

CFB in all it’s glory today…the “great escape” in the ATL for Georgia Tech.  They survived a tremendous second half comeback by Georgia Southern (28 unanswered points) to finally get a turnover and win the game, 42-38.  Thank heavens!  Their next opponent, 17 Virginia Tech was upset by ECU, 28-21.  VT trailed for most of the game but managed to tie it up at 21-21 with little time left.  ECU marched down the field to win the game 28-21.  Embarrassing?  So, after upsetting Ohio State last weekend, not a good Saturday for the Hokies.  Meanwhile the Ohio State University got well with a 66-0 thrashing of Kent State.  UGA and South Carolina are underway…there was an hour rain/weather delay.  Currently, South Carolina leads 21-13.  UVA took care of 21 Louisville, 23-21, welcome to the ACC!  WVU over Maryland with a last second FG, 40-37.  2 Oregon rolled over Wyoming, 48-14 and more Pac 12 action later…USC at Boston College and UCLA at Texas (in Arlington, TX).  Also, 4 Oklahoma will host Tennessee.

So…busy Saturday.  Like I said, follow me on twitter!  Thanks and enjoy all the fun!
