WORLD SERIES

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals try for their third straight win in the World Series tonight as they hope to build on last night's 3-2 victory. The win gave the American League champs a 2-1 series lead.

The weather forecast is iffy as the National Weather Service is calling for a 60 percent chance of showers by game time.

It's Ryan Vogelsong on the mound for the Giants against Jason Vargas for the Royals.

T25-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- In early results from Top-25 play No. 11 Kansas State had no trouble with Texas and No. 16 Nebraska breezed by Rutgers.

First up, the 11th-ranked Wildcats blanked the Longhorns 23-0 as Matthew McCrane kicked three field goals, and DeMarcus Robinson and Charles Jones each ran for a touchdown. KState is now 6-1 overall and 4-0 in league play. Jake Waters threw for 224 yards, and Tyler Lockett had eight catches for 103 yards to climb another notch in the school record books. The shutout loss is the first for Texas in 10 years. It was also the first shutout by the Wildcats since beating Kent State 37-0 three years ago, and the first in conference play since Nov. 8, 2003.

The 16th-ranked Cornhuskers got 225 yards rushing from Ameer Abdullah and three touchdowns as he set a school record with 341 all-purpose yards in their 42-24 win over Rutgers. Abdullah surpassed 200 yards rushing for a nation-leading fourth time this season and fifth time in his career. The win leaves Nebraska with a record of 7-1 and 3-1 in Big Ten play while Rutgers, which lost to Ohio State a week ago 56-17, is 5-3 and 1-3.

Third-ranked and undefeated Mississippi is in Baton Rouge for a tough test tonight against 24th-ranked LSU. Ole Miss is firmly in the race for a Southeastern Conference title and a spot in the four-team college football playoff, but a stumble against the Tigers would at least dent the Rebels' hopes of accomplishing both. LSU maintains slim hopes of getting back into the SEC West race, knowing it'll have to win its last four league games -- and get some help -- in order to climb up the standings

NFL-BUCS

UNDATED (AP) -- Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has signed a seven-year extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The $98 million deal makes McCoy the highest-paid player at his position. A 2013 All-Pro, McCoy will get $51.5 million guaranteed, the most ever given to a defensive tackle in NFL history. His new deal will average $14 million per year.

NFL-LIONS

LONDON (AP) -- When Detroit and Atlanta square off Sunday in London, the Lions won't have defensive tackle C.J. Mosley on the sidelines. He was sent home on Saturday and suspended by the Lions for an unspecified violation of team rules. Detroit says in a release that Mosley engaged in detrimental conduct and is suspended for two weeks. The 31-year-old Mosley has played in all seven games this season for the Lions, with no starts. He has 2 1/2 sacks.

NFL-TITANS

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) -- Running back Shonn Greene of the Titans was arrested for allegedly parking in a handicapped space and speeding away while an officer was issuing him a citation. Franklin, Tennessee, police Sgt. Charles Warner says Greene surrendered Friday night after being told warrants had been obtained for his arrest. Greene was released on $2,000 bond. He is due in court Nov. 13.

NBA-CAVALIERS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cavaliers have exercised the fourth-year contract option on guard Dion Waiters. The fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft by Cleveland, Waiters will start in the Cavs backcourt with Kyrie (ky-REE') Irving.

The Cavs were expected to pick up the option worth $5.1 million on Waiters, who averaged 15.3 point last season.

PGA-McGLADREY CLASSIC

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) -- There's a two-way tie for the lead after the third round of the PGA's McGladrey Classic in South Carolina. Andrew Svoboda and Will MacKenzie each finished play at 12-under-par. MacKenzie earned his share of the lead by shooting a 5-under-65 while Svoboda shot a 4-under-66. Russell Henley is one back.

CHAMPIONS TOUR-SAN ANTONIO

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Michael Allen has the clubhouse lead during the second round of the Champions Tour's AT&T Championship. He shot a 7-under-65 to finish play at 9-under to top Bernhard Langer and Fred Funk by two shots. Several players remain on the course in San Antonio.

LPGA TOUR

HAINAN ISLAND, China (AP) -- American Jessica Korda is the leader after two rounds of the rain-shortened LPGA event in China. She rebounded from an opening hole double bogey for a share of the lead with South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace. They stand 11-under-par.

American's Michelle Wie (wee) and Brittany Lang will start the last round at 9-under.

TENNIS-WTA FINALS

SINGAPORE (AP) -- Serena Williams is in the final of the WTA Finals after beating Caroline Wozniacki (wohz-nee-AK'-ee) in a third-set tiebreaker, 2-6, 6-3, 7-6. Williams remains on course for a third-straight title in the season-ending championships.

Her opponent in Sunday's final will be Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp), who beat Williams 6-0, 6-2 early in the round-robin tournament. The loss was the American's most lopsided defeat in 16 years.
