NEW YORK - It had been a long time, more than three months to be exact, since Christian Hackenberg looked like the confident quarterback who had excited Penn State fans during his 2013 freshman year, who was on everyone's top-10-in-the-nation list at the start of the season. On Saturday at Yankee Stadium, Hackenberg showed a captivated sellout Pinstripe Bowl crowd of 49,012 that he could still be that guy, leading the Nittany Lions back from a two-touchdown deficit against Boston College and carrying the game into overtime.

In the aftermath of a 68-66 overtime loss to American at Tom Gola Arena on Tuesday, La Salle's players said all the right things. They credited their foes with playing hard, making tough shots and shooting the ball at better than 48 percent from the field. But when La Salle coach John Giannini had the last word, he acknowledged what everyone in the arena saw. The Explorers were not ready to play. "You can't not be ready to play and beat a team like American, especially when they are shooting the ball the way they are. We weren't ready to play," Giannini said.

NEPTUNE, N.J. - Instead of huddling for a team meeting, the Washington Township boys' soccer team lined up and faced the scoreboard. "Our coaches told us to look at it. They told us there's no way we could allow ourselves to leave here with that scoreboard saying 2-1, them," Derek MacKinnon said of his team's unorthodox gathering between the first and second overtime periods. Thirty seconds into the second overtime, MacKinnon fulfilled his coaches' wish. He headed in a perfect pass from Dan Marino to give Washington Township a 2-1 win over Manalapan Wednesday in the state Group 4 semifinals at Summerfield Elementary School.
