shots late in the game showed he still has a lot to learn. That goes for plenty of his underclassmen

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Puma Creepers All Black . -- So much went wrong for Louisville during last weeks blowout loss at Houston that the No. 11 Cardinals wanted to forget it as quickly as possible.Youve got 24 hours, thats always the rule, either (after) a win or a loss, linebacker Keith Kelsey said Monday of the dealing with the aftermath of the 36-10 loss . You cant dwell on it because theres always another team to play. ... Youve got to move forward.Louisvilles goal is to correct multiple breakdowns heading into Saturdays in-state rivalry game against Kentucky (6-5), which is bowl eligible after a morale-boosting win.Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino still gave players some days off to decompress after the error-prone defeat that eliminated Louisville (9-2) from the college playoff discussion. The loss essentially handed the Atlantic Division title to fourth-ranked Clemson, which made it official by beating Wake Forest on Saturday night to earn a berth in next weeks Atlantic Coast Conference championship in Orlando, Florida.Louisville fell eight spots to 11th in the rankings but still can clinch the first 10-win regular season in Petrinos second coaching tenure by beating the Wildcats and having something to brag about after a week to forget.They were injured, no doubt about it, and you go through that process Friday and Saturday where you wonder what happened, said Petrino, who paraphrased late heavyweight great Muhammad Ali about bouncing back.One of the things we use is a quote from Ali that says, `inside of a ring or out, aint nothing wrong with going down. Its staying down thats wrong, Petrino said. We all understand, hey, weve got to get off the ground.Though the Cardinals have beaten the Wildcats five straight times, last years 38-24 victory in Lexington required overcoming a 21-0 deficit behind quarterback Lamar Jackson, whos now a Heisman Trophy favorite. And victory certainly isnt automatic against a Wildcats squad buoyed by clinching their first postseason berth in six years and hungry to follow up with a win over their rivals.Right now, the Cardinals must address multiple concerns to avoid a second straight loss.Louisvilles biggest issue is an offensive line that yielded a season-high 11 sacks and was penalized numerous times for false starts and holding. Two linemen appeared to yell at each other after the 10th sack in which Jackson threw up his hands over the protection breakdowns.Everybodys got to take responsibility and their part of it, Petrino said of the sacks, and the penalties, weve got to do a better job of focusing and playing in that type of atmosphere.Petrino suggested that players pressed instead of following their normal execution patterns, which will likely be stressed during this weeks practices. He also said improvement is needed on special teams, particularly a punt return game that gained zero yards.Returning home to prepare for a rivalry game has already helped restore Louisvilles focus on several levels.Asked whether Jackson might need a big game to seal his Heisman prospects, Petrino said his QBs mindset was on doing everything to help his team win. And judging from the sharpness of Sunday nights practice, Jackson and Louisville have already moved forward.One loss or two doesnt define who you are as a team, Kelsey said. We just have to do what weve been doing the whole season, playing with enthusiasm, fast, physical and aggressive.---More AP College Football: Puma Creepers Rihanna . Perez, 35, posted a 1-2 record with a 3.69 earned-run average in 19 relief appearances last season. His season ended Aug. 9 due to a torn ligament in his left elbow.

The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1. COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Southern California guard DeAnthony Melton played like a silky-smooth veteran down the stretch at Texas A&M, prompting a gentle reminder from Trojans coach Andy Enfield afterward.Hes a true freshman, in the third game of his college career, and we were on the road, Enfield said with a smile.Melton could have fooled the Aggies, late in the Trojans 65-63 comeback victory before a stunned crowd on Friday night. The 6-foot-4 Melton knocked down a 3-pointer with 2:07 remaining to close A&Ms lead to 62-60, and with 12 seconds left he stole the ball from A&M point guard JC Hampton to help preserve the victory.He has an uncanny ability to make plays at crucial times, Enfield said.Melton scored four of his eight points in the last two minutes, Chimezie Metu had 14 points and Jordan McLaughlin added 13.The Aggies (2-1) led 63-60 with 58 seconds remaining when the Trojans (3-0) closed with a flourish. Bennie Boatwright made two free throws with 45 seconds remaining to tighten the gap to 63-62. Hampton then drove the lane and missed a short jump shot, and Boatwright missed a 3-point attempt on the ensuing possession. But McLaughlin grabbed the offensive rebound, and Metu followed with a dunk to lift the Trojans to a 64-63 lead they wouldnt relinquish.We made youthful mistakes that Ive got to get them better at, said A&M coach Billy Kennedy, who had to replace four senior starters from last years NCAA tournament Sweet 16 team.Following Metus dunk Hampton dribbled the ball up court with 17 seconds left, but Melton swiped the ball from behind, and Admon Gilder fouled Melton when he drove to the basket with 11 seconds left. Melton made his first free throw but missed his second, and A&M guard D.J. Hoggs 3-point attempt from the top of the key missed the mark at the buzzer.We made some mistakes, and in life when you make mistakes sometimes you pay, A&M forward Tonny Trocha-Morelos said. We made mistakes, and USC took advantage.Hogg led the Aggiies with 17 points, and Trocha-Morelos added 15. Puma Fenty Trainer. USCs Elijah Stewart had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Metu grabbed 10 boards.Texas A&Ms front line is just outstanding, Enfield said of the Aggies size and athleticism down low. So to hold them to 38 percent shooting and out-rebound them (47 to 44) was terrific on our part.BIG PICTUREAfter two easy wins at home to start the season, the Trojans showed plenty of resiliency in their first time on the road, overcoming a late deficit in front of a hostile crowd. A&M coach Billy Kennedy said he believes USC is an NCAA Tournament team, and the Trojans looked like it on Friday.The Aggies are young and it showed. Freshman forward Robert Williams has been a dynamo around the basket, but a couple of errant long shots late in the game showed he still has a lot to learn. That goes for plenty of his underclassmen teammates, as well.UP NEXTTexas A&M goes on the road for the first time on Thursday, and will face Cal State Northridge in Fullerton, California, in the Wooden Legacy.The Trojans return to Los Angeles on Tuesday against New Orleans, the first of three consecutive home games.HE SAID ITSometimes you have to lose, and learn in those games, A&M coach Billy Kennedy said of his young team.STAT OF THE NIGHTThe teams were almost even in turnovers (11 for USC and 12 for A&M), but the Trojans doubled up the Aggies, 16-8, in points off turnovers.TURNING POINTA&M led for nearly the entire first half, but USCs Jordan McLaughlin sank a jumper from near the top of the key at the halftime buzzer to lift the Trojans to a 31-29 lead, a harbinger of things to come from USC.STREAK STOPPERSUSC snapped an A&M streak of a dozen consecutive non-conference wins over high-major opponents in Reed Arena. A&M hadnt lost to a high-major in non-league play at home since December 8, 2001, against Miami.
