BOISE, Idaho -- Brett Rypien threw for 442 yards and three touchdowns as No. Paxton Lynch Jersey . 14 Boise State overcame five turnovers to hold off BYU 28-27 Thursday night.The Broncos (7-0), who won their 23rd straight non-conference home game, needed a stout defensive performance and a blocked field goal to secure the win.Boise State seemed to be battling itself as well as BYU with all the miscues on offense.I think it shows the will of this team, Boise State linebacker Tanner Vallejo said. We scratched and clawed and were able to get the win. This is a confidence booster for this team.BYU (4-4) attempted a 45-yard game-winning field goal with 16 seconds remaining, but Rhett Almonds kick was blocked. However, the ball didnt cross the line of scrimmage and Mitch Juergens recovered for BYU, giving the Cougars the ball at the Boise State 42 with 8 seconds left.The Cougars, who beat Boise State on a last-minute Hail Mary play last season, couldnt duplicate the magic on the final play of the game as the ball was knocked down in the end zone.It was another narrow defeat for BYU, which has lost all four games by a combined eight points.We had five turnovers and we were able to take care of the football, which is what kept us in the game, BYU coach Salani Sitake said. When youre ahead 5-0 in the turnover battle, you shouldnt even be in the game. That says a lot about how good this Boise State team is.BYU, which was without leading rusher Jamaal Williams due to an ankle injury suffered in practice this week, mustered just 322 yards of offense, well below its 405 yards per game average.However, it was still almost enough for the upset-minded Cougars.BYU took a 27-21 lead with 13:33 remaining on a 37-yard field goal by Almond.Then Boise States offense came to life for the first time in the second half.Rypien engineered a 10-play, 90-yard drive that ended in a 4-yard touchdown run by Jeremy McNichols with 10:37 remaining. Tyler Rausas extra point gave the Broncos a 28-27 lead that withstood BYUs last-minute rally.McNichols rushed for 140 yards and had 109 yards receiving along with a pair of touchdowns. Thomas Sperbeck also had 109 yards receiving on nine catches, his 11th career game with more than 100 yards receiving.TAKEAWAYSBYU: The Cougars have a chance to finish the season strong against a softer schedule that doesnt include any Power 5 schools.Boise State: The Broncos remain in position to secure a New Years Six bowl berth if it continues winning and Houston stumbles.UP NEXTBYU: The Cougars take a week off before returning to the road for a game at Cincinnati on Nov. 5.Boise State: The Broncos will take advantage of the extra couple days to prepare for a road tilt with divisional foe Wyoming next Saturday. Peyton Manning Jersey . The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. Andy Janovich Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . . The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. In kneeling during The Star-Spangled Banner before the U.S. womens national team friendly versus Thailand on Thursday, Megan Rapinoe became the first athlete to continue Colin Kaepernicks protest while wearing a national team uniform.Before Thursdays match, Rapinoe said she was undecided about kneeling because the act so far hasnt prompted conversation about racial injustice as hoped. So, Rapinoe could have retreated into her own privilege, explaining away a decision not to kneel with some words about patriotism and not achieving her original goal. She would have saved herself from the deluge of condemnations sure to come. Not kneeling certainly would have been the safer option.Instead, she chose solidarity over safety and took a knee.The pushback to Kaepernick, Rapinoe and the other players kneeling during the national anthem has been fraught with cries of how divisive the protest is, with disagreements about the method and timing, and with calls to place individual beliefs aside. All of those complaints have to do with the method of the protest instead of what really matters: the fact that racial inequality is rampant in this country.In Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday (where the U.S. women played their match), 13-year-old Tyre King was shot and killed by police. His death is still under investigation, and we dont know all the details, but his name will forever be mentioned with Michael Brown, John Crawford III, Eric Garner, Rekia Boyd, Laquan McDonald, Walter Scott, Natasha McKenna, Janisha Fonville, Tanisha Anderson, Tamir Rice and so many more as black people who have died at the hands of the police in recent years.This is what Kaepernick and Rapinoe are fighting against. This is about lives and about emphatically stating that black lives are worth just as much white ones. Instead of criticizing Rapinoe for exercising her right to protest, perhaps we should ask this question: Why she is the only white professional athlete to kneel so far? Because the silence from white athletes is deafening.The Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs players locking arms in unity is the closest a white NFL player has come to joining the protests. But there is no risk or objection in linking arms -- fundamentally, there is no protest, andd that is the point. Matt Paradis Jersey. Its a cop-out.Each time a player of color takes a knee or raises a fist, they put themselves and their livelihoods at risk. Brandon Marshall, a linebacker with the Denver Broncos, lost two endorsements following his kneel before the season opener at Mile High Stadium. Hiding behind linked arms and team statements shields players from backlash -- but also from taking a stance.Compare the linked arms to the actions taken by white members of the WNBA following shootings in Dallas in July. Alongside her Lynx teammates, Lindsay Whalen wore a T-shirt supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and Dallas Police; Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart showed solidarity by also wearing black T-shirts. These players openly raised awareness of police brutality against the black community, much like Rapinoe is doing for Kaepernick now, in the absence of support from his own teammates.The fact that the examples of support come from women point to the fact that this conversation is rooted in an understanding of marginalization in this country. Many women have experienced discrimination. For Rapinoe, as a member of the LGBT community, its magnified. Anyone who is not a white, cisgender, heterosexual, Christian, able-bodied man has had to fight for their rights and dignity in this country.These are hard, uncomfortable conversations. Thats why so many are deflecting the issue at hand in their criticism of the protests. Rapinoe will probably be painted as ungrateful, because playing for the national team is a privilege and an honor, as U.S. Soccer said in a statement afterwards. For Rapinoe, however, its clear that privilege can and should be risked -- and possibly sacrificed -- for a cause greater than herself.Rapinoes choice was one of selflessness, though critics will say she put herself before the team. That is a false dichotomy. The issue of equality and the value placed (or not placed) on the lives of black and brown people transcends sport. And if she is punished for this action, she may well have placed those lives above her own livelihood.That is the very definition of sacrifice. Wholesale Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
