ALGONA — Le Mars converted three turnovers into scores and won 34-18 at Algona Friday night in a Class 3A district 1 match-up.  Gabe Eckstaine ran for two touchdowns and threw for another to lead Le Mars and Gabe Toki added a pair of TD-dashes.  Algona fumbled on the first play of the game, setting up a five yard touchdown run by Eckstaine a minute and a-half into the game.  Algona countered with a 28-yard field goal by Aasmund Selbekk to trim the Le Mars lead to 8-3.  Gabe Toki made it 16-3 with a 23-yard touchdown run with 2:56 to play in the first quarter.  Jacob Durant’s four yard run for Algona cut the Le Mars advantage to 16-10 with 11:28 to play in the first half.  Gabe Eckstaine capped another short drive thanks to another Algona fumble with a 15 yard run with 4:07 to play before halftime and the Bulldogs led 22-10 at the break.  Gabe Toki’s one yard run in the third quarter extended the Le Mars lead to 28-10 after three quarters.  Algona drove inside the five yard line before coughing up their third fumble of the game at the one yard line, setting Le Mars on a 99-yard scoring drive that sealed the outcome.  Gabe Eckstaine delivered a beautiful pass over the middle to Collin Nemmers for an 82-yard bomb to finish the Bulldogs longest scoring drive of the season.  Algona quarterback Jackson Helmers’ four yard run with five minutes to play capped the scoring.  Gabe Toki ran for a career-best 149 yards on 19 carries and Gabe Eckstaine finished 8-of-15 for 166 yards and two interceptions.  Collin Nemmers caught four passes for 100 yards.  Le Mars improves to 5-and-3 and 3-and-3 in district play.  The Bulldogs host Humboldt next Friday in their regular season finale.

AUSTIN, Texas — Shane Buechele passed for 296 yards and two touchdowns and Texas got coach Charlie Strong a desperately-needed win, snapping a three-game losing streak with a win over Iowa State 27-6 Saturday night.  Buechele threw scoring strikes of 37 yards to Jerrod Heard and 75 yards and Devin Duvernay in the third quarter as the Longhorns’ high-powered offense overcame a sluggish start.  Joel Lanning passed for 140 yards for Iowa State (1-6, 0-4) and was sacked eight times by the Longhorns’ defense.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Iowa scored touchdowns on five of its six opening-half possessions and defeated Purdue 49-35 on Saturday, winning its school-record ninth consecutive road game.  The Hawkeyes (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) broke the former school record of eight consecutive road victories set from 1920-23.  Iowa completely dominated the first two quarters, running 41 plays for 397 yards, successfully converting 7 of 8 third-down opportunities.  Hawkeye quarterback C.J. Beathard ran 16 yards for one touchdown and passed 42 yards to wide receiver Riley McCarron for another first-half TD.  Running back LeShun Daniels ran 1 and 4 yards for Iowa touchdowns, and Akrum Wadley added a 75-yard TD run with 1:18 remaining in the second quarter, giving the Hawkeyes a 35-7 lead at halftime.  Iowa cornerback Desmond King’s 41-yard interception return for a touchdown with 1:44 remaining capped the Iowa scoring.

INDIANAPOLIS — Terrell Newby ran for one score and Tommy Armstrong Jr. hooked up with Stanley Morgan Jr. on a 72-yard touchdown pass with 9:57 left to play, helping No. 10 Nebraska hold off Indiana 27-22 on Saturday.  The 10th-ranked Cornhuskers (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) won their seventh straight game overall and their fifth in a row in this series, last played in 1978. It’s also the first time since 2001 that Nebraska has won its first six.

Happ and Francisco Lindor had an RBI single for the Indians, who have won five straight postseason games for the first time in their 116-year history.  Cody Allen struck out Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista in a perfect ninth for the Indians, who had never been up 2-0 in four previous A-L-C-S trips.
