KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs made his final home game one to remember.Not even having his team knocked out of the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division race could ruin his day.Dobbs threw three touchdown passes and ran for two more scores -- including a career-long 70-yarder -- as Tennessee won a 63-37 shootout with Missouri on Saturday.I definitely had a blast, Dobbs said. Its not really an end. We obviously still have a couple of games left, but its an enjoyable opportunity and I definitely enjoyed it tonight.Tennessees hopes of reaching the SEC championship game vanished when No. 21 Florida upset No. 16 LSU 16-10 earlier Saturday to clinch its second straight SEC East title.Theres still a lot to play for, Dobbs said. Our legacys on the line, how we want to leave Tennessee.Dobbs was 15 of 22 for 223 yards Saturday with two touchdown passes to Jauan Jennings and one to Josh Malone. He rushed for a career-high 190 yards on just 10 carries. He even helped lead Tennessees Pride of the Southland band after the game.It was an impressive farewell to Neyland Stadium for a guy who has served as the face of Tennessees program while balancing his quarterback responsibilities with his academic demands as an aerospace engineering major.Im not very political, but he could be the president of the United States if he wanted to, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said.The Vols (8-3, 4-3 SEC) won despite allowing 740 yards in total offense, the highest single-game total ever by a Tennessee opponent. Troy gained 721 yards in a 55-48 loss to Tennessee in 2012.Damarea Crockett rushed for 225 yards and Ish Witter gained 163 yards to lead a 420-yard rushing attack for Missouri (3-8, 1-6). The Tigers gained 600-plus total yards for the fourth time this season.Offensively thats a pretty good day, Missouri coach Barry Odom said. I didnt have enough answers defensively to put us there to win it.Crockett had the second-highest single-game rushing total ever by a Tennessee opponent. Mississippis Dexter McCluster rushed for 282 yards against Tennessee in 2009.Tennessees John Kelly rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown. Alvin Kamara ran for 55 yards and two scores.The Vols were clinging to a 35-30 lead when Dobbs made a move around Missouris Thomas Wilson at the line of scrimmage and raced for a 70-yard touchdown with 13:20 remaining.Tennessee took command from there.THE TAKEAWAYMissouri: The Tigers season-long kicking woes hurt them again Saturday.Missouri missed an extra-point attempt for the sixth time this season at the end of the Tigers first series. Missouri also had gone 5 of 12 on field-goal attempts this season before Saturday.The Tigers kicking game has struggled so much that they decided to go for it rather than attempting a field goal while facing fourth-and-12 from the Tennessee 20 early in the second quarter. After Missouri was penalized for a false start, the Tigers still kept their offense on the field to try converting the first down on fourth-and-17 from the 25. The drive ended with an incomplete pass.Tennessee: The Vols defense remains extremely vulnerable, particularly against the run. Missouri put up huge numbers against Tennessee one week after the Vols allowed 443 yards rushing in a 49-36 victory over Kentucky. Tennessee also gave up 353 yards rushing to Texas A&M and 409 to Alabama this season.POLL IMPLICATIONSThis win could help Tennessee get back into the Top 25. The Vols, who have been ranked as high as ninth this year, fell out of the rankings after an Oct. 29 loss at South Carolina. Tennessee was fourth in the also receiving votes section of the AP poll this week but was 19th in the College Football Playoff rankings.KEY STATSTennessee has won three straight games and has scored over 40 points in all of them. This marks the first time since 1995 that the Volunteers have scored 40-plus points in three consecutive games. ... Crockett now has rushed for 1,062 yards this season, the most ever by a Missouri freshman.UP NEXTMissouri hosts Arkansas on Friday.Tennessee is at Vanderbilt on Saturday.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Steve Megargee at www.twitter.com/stevemegargee Air Jordan Scarpe Italia .

Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. Nike Air Max 2016 Scontate .Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament. DENVER -- Its hard to say what was more shocking: Nolan Arenado failing to come through in the clutch or the Gold Glove winner committing a throwing error.Neither happens happen often to the All-Star third baseman, who is generating some MVP buzz for the season hes having.Arenados errant throw paved the way to a game-altering inning as the Colorado Rockies lost 5-3 to the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. He also lined out to end the game with the potential tying runs on base.That spoiled a fine outing by Tyler Anderson (5-6). The rookie allowed five runs -- two earned -- in seven solid innings and is 5-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 12 starts at Coors Field.He ended up getting through seven, so it was a good outing, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.The slick-fielding Arenado made a costly throwing error in the fourth with the score tied at 2. Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez then delivered two-out, two-run double, and Matt Carpenter added a run-scoring single.We have seen (Arenado) make that play. He makes it look easy and that wasnt an easy play, Weiss said. And then the throw was a little high. It was a tough play.In the ninth, pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn hit a solo homer off Kevin Siegrist to make it 5-3. After allowing a single to Charlie Blackmon, Siegrist struck out DJ LeMahieu before walking Carlos Gonzalez.That brought up Arenado, who flied out to left field to end the game.Arenado drove in a run earlier, giving him an NL-best 124 RBI. He also leads the league in homers (38), which is why Weiss believes Arenado should garner some MVP votes despite playing on a 72-78 squad.One of the best players in the league, Weiss said. But I dont think this will be the last time hes in that conversation.LeMahieu finished 2 for 4 to raise his average to .349 and take a slight lead over Washingtons Daniel Murphy in the NL batting race. Murphy is hitting .348.Martinez labored most of the game. Not with his pitches, but catching his breeath.dddddddddddd.He threw five effective innings despite struggling to take a deep breath in the thin air. Martinez, who turns 25 on Wednesday, gave himself an early birthday present by holding Colorado to two runs while striking out six. The right-hander is 9-1 on the road this season.The altitude affects everybody a little differently, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. It affected him today, for sure.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: There are no plans for surgery on the broken left hand of 1B Mark Reynolds after he was hit by a pitch Sunday, ending his season. Its a tough break for Mark, Weiss said.HOLD THE ONIONSA launched baseball in batting practice left a burger joint in quite a pickle.The Helton Burger Shack located behind the bleachers in left field was closed Monday after a ball broke the glass protecting the prep area.No official word on whose liner actually broke the window pane -- Twitter conversations credited injured Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday -- but it wasnt the restaurants namesake; Todd Helton retired after the 2013 season.BAD BLOOD?The Rockies have some history with Martinez. In July 2015, things got a little heated after he hit LeMahieu with a pitch.Martinez didnt think there was any purpose to a pitch that plunked him Monday night, even though it did sting.I dont think it was any retaliation. That happened last year. Its a new year, Martinez said through a translator. I wouldnt like to think that. I think it just got away.Anderson downplayed it, too.It was a ball that cut and hit him in the shin, he explained.UP NEXTCardinals: With 132 wins, RHP Adam Wainwright (11-9, 4.51 ERA) tries to move closer to tying Dizzy Dean (134) for sixth on the teams career list.Rockies: LHP Jorge De La Rosa (8-8, 5.22) is 4-0 with a 4.01 ERA in four starts against St. Louis at Coors Field.
