Fourth-down decisions help No. 13 LSU top No. 2 Georgia - SFChronicle.com

Fourth-down decisions help No. 13 LSU top No. 2 Georgia - SFChronicle.com

Joe Burrow passed for 200 yards and ran for two touchdowns, LSU’s defense staggered Georgia’s prolific offense, and the 13th-ranked Tigers beat the No. 2 Bulldogs 36-16 on Saturday in Baton Rouge, La., to give coach Ed Orgeron a signature victory. Five fourth-down decisions by Orgeron influenced the result. LSU converted all four times it ran an offensive play on fourth down, sustaining three drives that produced a total of 13 points. In another instance, Orgeron called a timeout and elected to punt on 4th-and-2 after the offense initially remained on the field. That move pinned Georgia (6-1, 4-1) at its 4, and Kristian Fulton’s interception shortly afterward set up another of Cole Tracy’s five field goals. “We were going for it as hard as we can today,” Orgeron said. “We were throwing out the kitchen sink, man. We were giving them everything we had and we did it.” Read More Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for 133 yards for LSU (6-1, 3-1 SEC), and Justin Jefferson caught six passes for 108 yards, including a 41-yard snag of a pass rifled over the middle and between converging defenders. That catch set up Burrow’s second TD in the fourth quarter. Nick Brossette added a short TD in the final minutes after Burrow’s 59-yard run. #1 Alabama 39, Missouri 10: Tua Tagovailoa passed for 265 yards and three touchdowns before leaving in the third quarter with a sprained right knee as the host Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 SEC) beat the Tigers (3-3, 0-3). Tagovailoa was playing with a brace on his right knee, sprained a week earlier against Arkansas. “Tua could have went back in the game,” head coach Nick Saban said. “He wanted to go back in the game. I didn’t think it was worth him going back into the game.” Jerry Jeudy, who had three catches for 147 yards, caught an 81-yard touchdown strike from Tagovailoa on the game’s second play. #3 Ohio State 30, Minnesota 14: Dwayne Haskins threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns for the host Buckeyes (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten), who needed Blake Haubiel’s two second-half field goals and Haskins’ late touchdown pass to K.J. Hill to put away the Gophers (3-3, 0-3). #5 Notre Dame 19, Pittsburgh 14: Ian Book threw a 35-yard TD pass to Miles Boykin with 5:43 to play to help the Fighting Irish remain unbeaten, coming from behind and then holding off visiting Pittsburgh. The Irish are 7-0 for the first time since 2012, the year they went to the BCS title game. Pitt (3-4) led 14-12 thanks to a long first-quarter touchdown drive and a 99-yard kickoff return by Maurice Ffrench to start the second half. But the Irish, who were held to 80 yards rushing, prevailed behind Book, who is 4-0 as a starter since replacing Brandon Wimbush. Book was 13-of-14 passing for 158 yards in the second half. Iowa State 30, #6 West Virginia 14: Freshman Brock Purdy threw for 254 yards and three TDs and the Cyclones (3-3, 2-2 Big 12) throttled the visiting Mountaineers (5-1, 3-1). David Montgomery rushed for 189 yards for Iowa State. Michigan State 21, #8 Penn State 17: Brian Lewerke threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Felton Davis with 19 seconds left to lift the visiting Spartans (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten) past the Nittany Lions (4-2, 1-2). Lewerke completed 25 of 52 passes for 259 yards with an interception and two touchdowns. Miles Sanders ran for 162 yards and a touchdown for Penn State. #9 Texas 23, Baylor 17: Freshman Keaontay Ingram ran for 110 yards, Texas’ first 100-yard rushing effort of the season, to help the host Longhorns (6-1, 4-0 Big 12) top the Bears (4-3, 2-2). Texas won despite losing quarterback Sam Ehlinger to a shoulder injury in the first quarter. #10 Central Florida 31, Memphis 30: McKenzie Milton threw for 296 yards and ran for the go-ahead TD in the fourth quarter for the visiting Golden Knights (6-0, 3-0 American Athletic), who overcame a 30-14 second-quarter deficit to edge the Tigers (4-3, 1-3). Memphis’ Darrell Henderson, who leads the nation in rushing, had 199 yards and a touchdown on the ground. #12 Michigan 38, #15 Wisconsin 13: Shea Patterson accounted for 214 yards of offense and a touchdown for the host Wolverines (6-1, 4-0 Big Ten), who have won six straight games since opening this season with a seven-point loss to Notre Dame. The Badgers (4-2, 2-1) had won a record 17 straight regular season Big Ten games, and 10 consecutive road games in and out of conference play. #14 Florida 37, Vanderbilt 27: Jordan Scarlett ran 48 yards for the go-ahead touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter and the visiting Gators (6-1, 4-1 SEC) rallied from an 18-point deficit to beat the Commodores (3-4, 0-3) in a game marred by a near brawl, with both head coaches yelling as each team spilled onto the field. Virginia 16, #16 Miami 13: Jordan Ellis ran for a TD and Brian Delaney kicked three field goals as the Cavaliers (4-2, 2-1 ACC) defeated the visiting Hurricanes (5-2, 2-1). Tennessee 30, #21 Auburn 24: Jarrett Guarantano passed for 328 yards and two touchdowns and the visiting Volunteers (3-3, 1-2) snapped an 11-game SEC losing streak. The Tigers (4-3, 1-3) are off to their worst SEC start since 2015. #22 Texas A&M 26, South Carolina 23: Kellen Mond threw for 353 yards and freshman Seth Small had four field goals as the visiting Aggies (5-2, 3-1 SEC) won their third straight and moved to 5-0 against the Gamecocks (3-3, 2-3) since joining the league in 2012. JUNIOR COLLEGEs Laney 42, CCSF 21: John McDonald carried 13 times for 135 yards as the visiting Eagles (5-1, 1-0 Bay 6) beat the Rams (4-2, 0-1). Cameron Nathan returned an interception 77 yards for a touchdown and Trevor King returned a blocked punt for Laney in the first half. Quarterback Jack Newman passed for 330 yards and two touchdowns for CCSF. San Mateo 41, Santa Rosa 9: Quarterback Shawn (Kamalili) Akina, who was injured in the season opener, returned to throw three touchdown passes and run for another score as the host Bulldogs (4-2, 1-0 Bay 6) beat the Bearcubs (4-2, 0-1), who had won four in a row.

Letters to the Editor: Great inspiration - SFChronicle.com

Regarding “Pledge no longer opens meetings of school board” (Bay Area, Oct. 11): What a joy to read Jill Tucker’s story about Stevon Cook, our new San Francisco school board president. He decided to replace the Pledge of Allegiance with a Quote: to begin the board meetings and he did it in a very skillful way. “There are a lot of ways to express gratitude and appreciation for the country and its citizens,” Cook said Wednesday morning. “This is how I plan to do that.” His first Quote: by Maya Angelou was perfect. “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” He will be a great example and inspiration for the other board members, and for all of our teachers and students. Judith Keenan, San Francisco Invidious comparison Regarding “A hero, a jester (him), villains, fears of dystopia” (Nation, Oct. 11): Noah Bierman compares President Trump’s rallies to Grateful Dead concerts. It’s bad enough that this invidious comparison insults the talented musical group and their dedicated followers; much worse is the fact that it characterizes his rallies as harmless entertainment. A more apt comparison for the Trump gatherings is the Nuremberg rallies. Anita Bohn, Kensington Wrong call on Prop. 5 Regarding “State propositions” (Insight, Oct. 7): The paper recommended a “no” vote on Proposition 5, citing as a reason it would not increase housing stocks. That’s a wrong call for a wrong reason. Prop. 5 would give seniors like me the opportunity to sell our homes in the highly congested Bay Area and take our Prop. 13 tax base with us to somewhere else in the state better suited to aging in place. Right now, only a few counties in California allow this. If Prop. 5 passes, all the counties in the state would allow it. By enabling seniors to “get out whole,” without having to pay huge capital gains and property tax increases, we will substantially increase the available housing in the Bay Area for young families while supporting the ability of California seniors to hold on to the equity and independence we have earned over our working lifetimes. Nancy Mangini, Redwood City Look to Vienna instead After reading “California can offer beacon to nation rising from ruins” (Insight, Oct. 7), in which columnist Joe Mathews recommended that our state look to Rome as an example of how to survive the rise and fall of governments, my initial question was: Are you kidding? Mathews might be impressed by that European city’s current young and progressive-minded leaders, but Rome in 2018 is plagued — as it has been for decades — by graffiti, garbage all over its fabled cobblestone streets, buses that don’t run on time, and constant labor union disputes leading to strikes that shut down vital city services. A better European city to emulate, ranked No. 1 for the past nine years in a Mercer world cities’ Quality of Life survey, is Vienna. The Austrian capital has affordable housing, excellent public transit, clean streets, and low crime. Perhaps California’s cities should study and try to replicate Vienna’s social democratic policies before it becomes a “beacon” to our own country’s current socioeconomic ruin. Sasha Englander, San Rafael Don’t waste time, Dems Regarding “Trump’s taxes on Pelosi’s radar” (Page One, Oct. 11): I am certainly no fan of President Trump, and I look forward to the Democrats retaking both the House and Senate. However, my greatest fear is that they will squander their mandate by wasting time seeking revenge on Trump and the Republicans instead of using it productively on passing legislation to improve health care (Medicare for All), repair crumbling infrastructure, to establish solid and equitable immigration policy, to enact sane and equitable tax reform and other worthwhile necessities. If they don’t, then they will be no better than the Republicans wasting everyone’s time trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Joseph Chance, Emeryville Keep children alert Concerning “Reset sought on time shift in state” (Page One, Oct. 11): As the mother of two teenagers, I give a big “thumbs-down” to Proposition 7 on the November ballot. If California has full-time standard time, winter mornings will be darker for many more days, making the task of waking and getting our adolescents to school on time even more difficult. What’s more important here? Making sure our children are alert and able to learn during their hours at school, or providing them with — as Prop. 7 supporters insist — more daylight hours to play outdoors after school? Regina Regalbuto, Santa Clara

Order a coffee and pay, with a tap on the dash - SFChronicle.com

As self-driving cars pull onto the nation’s roads, these advanced abilities will help manage the traffic mix of tomorrow, but they may also change the way we communicate while on the go. Automakers are betting that if our cars have the technological muscle to keep us connected, we will park our phones when we get in and communicate from the dashboard. A side benefit of all this technology is that it will also usher in a range of conveniences. These may include offering drivers options for fuel, food and lodging, perhaps with a bit of a hard sell thrown in. For owners of some General Motors vehicles, a taste of this future is already here. Since December, GM has equipped about 3 million cars with an in-dash system it calls Marketplace. The free system communicates directly with merchants, enabling a driver or passengers to order and pay for a variety of products and services without a phone. Vendors include McDonald’s, Shell, Exxon Mobil, Dunkin’ Donuts, Applebee’s, Delivery.com, IHOP, Parkopedia, Priceline, Wingstop, TGI Fridays, Office Depot and Yelp (for restaurant reservations). Many owners of cars equipped with Marketplace probably don’t even know it’s available. Only about 75,000 people have signed on, and it’s not mentioned in any car manuals. GM wanted to allow time for refinement and for lining up more merchants, but is now starting to promote the system to consumers. Marketplace interacts with GM’s infotainment system and establishes a dialogue with the car owner. For example, if the car is running low on fuel, Marketplace can provide directions to the nearest gas station. The system allows drivers to sign up for the vendor’s reward program and can point the way to discounted gas. There is no need to swipe a credit card at the pump, because Marketplace handles the transaction and turns on the pump. Marketplace communicates by means of a 4GLT modem that can connect to a cellular network or Wi-Fi. GM was well situated to adopt this technology, because its vehicles have been equipped with modems since OnStar’s debut in 1996. Other carmakers have introduced modem-based communication systems, but GM has made the most comprehensive push into mobile communication and marketing. Rick Ruskin, a General Motors executive leading the connected-customer programs, also points out a focus on limiting distracted driving. “Marketplace allows drivers to do in their car what they might previously have done on their phone,” he said. “It’s much safer than a phone in one hand and the steering wheel in the other.” Automakers have long employed the driver’s cell phone and a Bluetooth connection as the underlying technology for convenience features, but more companies and analysts view this as an inelegant and limited solution. A modem with its own SIM card will eventually become the only way new cars communicate with one another, the infrastructure, the owner’s devices and mobile vendors, said David Liniado, vice president for new growth and technology at the Cox Automotive research firm. SIM cards, which carry an identification number unique to the owner, are now in 130 million vehicles globally, Liniado said. “Bluetooth and the phone are gone,” he added. The driver or front-seat passenger can interact with Marketplace by touching the dashboard screen. Voice command technology is in development, Stefan Cross, a GM spokesman, said. Actions that require considerable involvement and could distract a driver, such as booking a hotel room on Priceline, can be executed only when the vehicle is stopped. Marketplace also limits options. For example, a Starbucks customer can order from the car while it is being driven, but only a few choices, based on previous orders, will be displayed. And the format is standardized so drivers know where to look and what to do no matter which vendor’s page they open, helping them remain focused on the road. Marketplace vendors either pay an up-front fee to be included or give GM a share of sales. It’s not a huge revenue stream, but it’s better than nothing. On a web page for merchants who hope to sell directly to drivers, the automaker writes: “Marketplace is the spark to ignite a shift in how consumers are immersed into vehicle experiences. With a first-of-its-kind branded ecosystem, Marketplace enables businesses to seamlessly integrate into drivers’ daily lives.” Other automakers are taking advantage of in-car communication on a smaller scale. BMW Connected now allows vehicle owners to speak to Alexa from the car, using the car’s onboard modem, no smartphone required. The automaker has not added vendors, but car owners can ask Alexa to place orders. Land Rover’s Touch Pro Duo system communicates via a modem and can find gas stations and provide traffic information. Mercedes-Benz offers a system called Mercedes Me. An app that provides control functions is installed on a cell phone or other personal device, and the car communicates with the owner via the vehicle’s modem. The system enables the creation of “geofence” boundaries. If the automobile is driven beyond a boundary, it sends a message to the car owner. Audi has added a feature called Traffic Light Information, which “talks” to stoplights and can tell drivers how long they will have to wait before the light changes to green. It works only in the few cities, including Las Vegas, Phoenix and Washington, that have installed the necessary hardware. While automakers and industry consultants are thinking about how in-car communication will work, others, like Bryan Reimer, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, are thinking about ways to ensure that these features won’t add hazards. “In providing information to the driver, we have to thread it strategically. Drivers must have ample time to look at the road,” Reimer said. “They can’t look off the road even briefly if they haven’t looked at the road long enough to see what’s going on.” Reimer said engineers are devising systems that can determine how often and how long the driver is looking at the road, and issue alerts and warnings if the driver’s attention wanders. Asked if there were any regulations on what a driver should be doing in the vehicle, Reimer said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration “has developed distraction guidelines regarding vehicle activities in general, but they don’t specify what type of in-vehicle applications should be allowed.” He added: “The Automotive Alliance has also provided guidelines that manufacturers have pledged to follow with regard to driver distraction. One has to ask, is it really appropriate to shop in a car? As vehicles automate more, it is plausible that what is acceptable should change, but we haven’t really come to grips with what is appropriate to do on either a smartphone or using an in-car application while driving.” All things considered, it seems certain that car buyers will soon be in touch with almost everything while on the fly, and that this ability will undoubtedly expand. By default, the car will be part of the internet of things. For those driving older vehicles, some retrofitting will be possible. Verizon offers a modem device and feature set, called Hum, that is similar to what is built into new cars and plugs into the onboard-diagnostics port of most vehicles from 1996 and later, and Mercedes-Benz dealers in Britain are retrofitting communication ability in many cars built since 2002.
