ATLANTA -- Grambling State seized the opportunity when North Carolina Centrals Quentin Atkinson celebrated too much in the Celebration Bowl. Daniel Alfredsson Jersey .Grambling State blocked an extra-point kick set back 15 yards by Atkinsons excessive celebration with just over two minutes left, holding off North Carolina Central 10-9 on Saturday in the bowl that decides bragging rights for historically black colleges and universities.Joseph McWilliams surged in and swatted Brandon McLarens 35-yard try with 2:14 remaining to preserve the Tigers edge.Down 10-3, the Eagles had a chance to pull even after Atkinson shook loose and caught a 39-yard touchdown pass from scrambling Malcolm Bell. But Atkinson took off his helmet while reveling with the crowd, drawing a personal foul penalty.I kind of felt fault for that, Atkinson said. I do want to apologize to my team for that because that was a selfish act. Im not selfish, but it was the heat of the moment and I was excited to bring the team back with an outstanding play.Bell called Atkinsons mistake kind of a bonehead play but said the team also was hurt by other mistakes in the game.North Carolina Central coach Jerry Mack said the longer extra point still should have been made if not for a missed block on McWilliams.Martez Carters 32-yard touchdown run to open the second half gave Grambling State (11-1) its first lead. The Tigers earned the bowl bid by winning the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship.The Eagles (9-3) won the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in Macks third year.Trailing 3-0 at halftime, Grambling State opened the third quarter with a run-first plan. Following five power runs by 240-pound running back Jestin Kelly, the 175-pound Carter looked extra-quick on his sharp cuts through the line on his touchdown run.Jestin Kelly, hes a ground-and-pound type guy, Carter said. He wore those guys down. Im just a home-run hitter, man. He wore them down and then they put me in. What else are you going to do? You take those blows from him and then try to take me.Carter had 109 yards rushing, two catches for 23 yards and a combined 71 yards on four punt and kickoff returns. He was named offensive MVP. Kelly added 65 yards rushing.The Tigers threw only one play-action pass for a short gain on the touchdown drive.Grambling States defense later set up more points. Arkez Cooper sacked Bell, forcing a fumble recovered by Malcolm Williams at the Eagles 25. The turnover set up a 26-yard field goal by Jonathan Wallace.McLarens 23-yard field goal provided the only points of the first half.THE TAKEAWAYGrambling State: The Tigers placed a cap on their continued strong progress made in three years under coach Broderick Fobbs, who won seven and nine games, respectively, in his first two years. Fobbs, who played for former coach Eddie Robinson, showed on the national stage the program has returned to prominence as a force among historically black colleges.North Carolina Central: Despite being a two-touchdown underdog, the Eagles played even with Grambling State, posting a shutout in the first half.QB NUMBERSBell completed 18 of 32 passes for 240 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He had several passes dropped, including a would-be touchdown catch by Atkinson in the first half. Devante Kincade completed 15 of 31 passes for 149 yards with an interception for Grambling State.HERE TO STAYBoth coaches praised the second-year Celebration Bowl as the more attractive alternative to a possible spot in the FCS playoffs.It exceeded all expectations, Fobbs said. This deal is here to stay.Added Mack: The way weve been treated ... I would rather come back to this game next year.UP NEXTGrambling State: The Tigers will return a good talent base, including Kincade, as they try to defend their SWAC championship. Theyll need to replace six starters on offense and 10 overall. Key losses from the defense include noseguard Blain Winston and leading tacklers Guy Stallworth and Cooper.North Carolina Central: The Eagles must replace nine senior starters, including six on offense, as they look to defend their MEAC championship. Freshman Naiil Ramadan was listed as the top backup to Bell at quarterback. The Eagles also lose four of their five starting offensive linemen, with only left tackle Nick Leverett returning.

Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.UFC expert Adam Matues is backing Conor McGregor to record a second-round win over Nate Diaz at UFC 196... Conor McGregor should have been attempting to make history on Saturday night by becoming the first fighter in UFC history to hold two belts at once.However, his scheduled opponent, lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos, broke his foot just 11 days before the bout, becoming the second of McGregors last eight scheduled opponents to pull out of a fight with him.  McGregor v Diaz Get all the big-fight odds from Sky Bet here As news spread of his withdrawal, many fighters threw their names into the hat to replace Dos Anjos, but one in particular stood out.Back in December following a unanimous decision win over Michael Johnson, Nate Diaz launched a foul-mouthed tirade live on air calling out McGregor, claiming it would be The Big Money Fight.  Diaz (right) is a replacement opponent after Rafael Dos Anjos pulled out The UFC granted the Ultimate Fighter season five winner his wish, with the companys two biggest trash talkers set to clash at the welterweight limit of 170lbs, which seems outrageous given that McGregor is the current 145lb champion.At odds of 1/5 McGregor is the overwhelming outright favourite but at such a short price I am looking elsewhere for a bet and I will first make the case for a huge upset.Could Diaz win? Diaz had called for a clash with the Irishman Diaz balances technical boxing skills with an exceptional ground game, giving him options when building his game plan for this fight.The American will have seen how often Chad Mendes was able to take down McGregor and he may see that as his big opportunity to get the win.However, having only ever been knocked out once, he may be confident enough to engage in a tactical striking contest  and, at 6ft 1in, Diaz is significantly bigger than the 5ft 9in McGregor, making it the first time The Notorious hasnt had a height and reach advantage over an opponent. McGregors latest foe could be tempted to stand and trade with him At 7/2, Diaz is the significant underdog with many expectiing him to enter the Octagon out of shape, having accepted the fight at just 10 days notice. Mike Condon Jersey. However, to me this price is a little too big as we know Diaz has a relentless engine, fine-tuned by training for triathlons in his spare time, something which he was doing when he got the call about this fight.With 10 of his last 19 wins coming via submission, five of which were in the second round, a small bet on Diaz to win by submission in the second at 40/1 with Sky Bet should appeal to those sensing an upset.Mystic Mac The two fighters have exchanged heated words this week McGregors distance control inside the Octagon is better than anyones so, should the fight stay standing, the height and reach disadvantage is negligible.Even if the fight goes to the ground, McGregor proved against Chad Mendes, a world-class wrestler, that he can manoeuvre himself back into an advantageous position.McGregor has built a reputation of being able to correctly predict exactly when and how he will beat an opponent, earning himself the nickname Mystic Mac in the process.This time he has predicted he will stop Diaz inside the first round and he could be proven right again if he can force Diaz into making mistakes like he did to Jose Aldo in a 13-second demolition.Sky Bet have boosted McGregor to win in the first two minutes from 3/1 to 5/1, which looks a nice price when compared to the 11/8 for the first-round win, especially if you believe McGregor when he says Diaz will be hurt in the first exchange. McGregor will be seeking another swift victory at UFC 196 None of his last five fights have gone past the second round, compared to Diaz who has gone the distance in three of his. As spectacular as a first-round stoppage would be, I see this lasting longer with both to keep a vicious pace for the first round and a half.Diaz is very tough and I expect the first round to be fairly even with both fighters striking well but a 10-day fight preparation is not enough to take on arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC.As Diazs legs begin to get heavy towards the end of the second, I expect McGregor to back up his claim that he is too fast and elusive for these stuck in the mud welterweights by picking off Diaz whenever he advances. Therefore my main bet is going to be McGregor to KO Diaz in the second round, which is available at 10/3 with Sky Bet.
