In front of a sold-out crowd numbering 45,647, the Horned Frogs downed the Texas Tech Red Raiders 12-3 extending their nation-leading winning streak to 13 games.Junior place kicker Chris Manfredini, who provided the Frogs with 12 points going 4-4 on field goals, which gives him continues his perfect field goal career at TCU, said he still gets nervous before every kick and attributes that to his strong record.

Owens needs to get in the game

Sunday marks the first game of the NFL season for the Dallas Cowboys, and more importantly, Terrell Owens' debut in Texas with a star on his helmet.Although Owens is a Pro Bowl wide receiver, his attitude will be what takes top billing over a game that could go either way for Dallas.

The Cowboys play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, a team that made the playoffs in 2005 on the shoulders of its defense. And, with Dallas' division getting stronger each year, they will need every win they can muster to at least achieve a wild-card berth.
