OVC AND SOUTHLAND ANNOUNCE FOOTBALL SCHEDULING ALLIANCE
The Ohio Valley Conference and Southland Conference have announced plans for a football scheduling alliance between the two leagues in the 2022 and 2023 seasons. The planned collaboration will see institutions from each conference fill available non-conference dates on schedules in the next two years with a focus toward competitive balance and reasonable travel. It would likely mean at the most, one home game and one road game for most teams in the conferences. More specific details, including game matchups in 2022 and 2023, will be announced at a later date. Southland football members include Houston Baptist, Incarnate Word, McNeese State, Nicholls State, Northwestern State, Southeastern Louisiana, and Texas A&M University-Commerce.

BLUES FINALIZE ROSTER
The Blues roster for the start of the 2021-2022 season is finalized. The roster includes 14 forwards, seven defense-men, and two goaltenders. An injured Oskar Sundqvist is on the list. Opening night is this Saturday against the Colorado Avalanche at Ball Arena.

NATIONAL SPORTS BRIEFS
Jon Gruden is resigning as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. Gruden informed his staff of his intention to resign as more past emails surfaced that featured homophobic and misogynistic comments. This follows a report from an email from 2011 where Gruden made a racist comment about NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith. Rich Bisaccia will serve as interim coach effective immediately.

Jon Gruden is releasing his first statement since resigning from the Las Vegas Raiders. Gruden said he loves the Raiders and that he wishes to not be a “distraction” to the franchise. Gruden’s statement comes on the heels of a report detailing derogatory and damaging emails from the former head coach published by the New York Times. Gruden also apologized in his statement and said he never “meant to hurt anyone.”

The Ravens overcame a 22-3 second-half deficit to take down the Colts in a 31-25 overtime win in Baltimore. Colts kicker Rodrigo Blankenship missed a field goal as time expired in regulation that sent the game to overtime. On the first drive of the extra period, Jackson threw a five-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown to give Baltimore the win. Jackson set a Ravens-franchise record with 442 passing yards.

The Red Sox are on their way to the ALCS after walking off the Rays 6-5 in Boston. The Astros and White Sox could not play Game Four of the ALDS due to rain in the forecast. In the National League, the Braves are within one game of the NLCS after beating the Brewers 3-0. The Giants are also within a game after defeating the Dodgers 1-0 in Los Angeles.

The 2021-22 NHL regular season will get started tonight. Things begin in Tampa, where the two-time defending Stanley Cup Champion Lightning will raise a banner as they host the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Bolts will be trying to become the first three-peat winner since the New York Islanders won four in-a-row from 1980-83. In the second game, the NHL’s 32nd franchise will make its regular season debut as the Seattle Kraken visit the Vegas Golden Knights.
