QB McMaryion decides to leave OSU
Quarterback Marcus McMaryion has decided to transfer from Oregon State. McMaryion has already graduated with a degree in public health and will be immediately eligible with two years of eligibility remaining. Earlier in the week Oregon State coach Gary Andersen named community college transfer Jake Luton as the Beavers' starting quarterback for the season. McMaryion put out a statement Sunday thanking his teammates, coaches and Oregon State's fans. "As I close this chapter of my life as a graduate, the next chapter awaits. It has been a privilege representing this program on and off the field. For my OSU brothers on the field, remain 11 strong and have a great season," he said. Injuries thrust McMaryion into the starting role for the Beavers' final six games last season. He threw for 1,286 yards and 10 touchdowns, but also threw five interceptions.
Keys tops Vandeweghe for Stanford win
Third-seeded Madison Keys outslugged No. 6 CoCo Vandeweghe 7-6 (4), 6-4 on Sunday to win the Bank of the West Classic in a thrilling display of power and serving by the two young American stars in their first career matchup. Keys won her third career singles title and first on hardcourt playing under cloudless skies at Stanford. She finally got her chance by rallying back to deuce in the ninth game of the second set, when Vandeweghe surrendered her first service game after she saved two break points that game. Vandeweghe hadn't dropped a set all tournament until the final. Keys, who missed the first two months of the season following surgery on her left wrist, eliminated Wimbledon champion and top-seeded Garbine Muguruza 6-3, 6-2 in just 57 minutes Saturday night to snap Muguruza's nine-match winning streak and advance to her first final this year.
Falcons' Collins suspended for PEDs
For the second straight year, Atlanta Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins will be suspended for the start of the season for a violation of the league's policy on performance enhancers. This time, the suspension carries a bigger bite: 10 games. The NFL announced Sunday that Collins has been suspended without pay for the first 10 games of the 2017 season. He was suspended for the first four games in 2016. Collins, a second-round pick in 2015, has said he failed drug tests at Louisiana State. The suspension will be costly to the Falcons' depth. Collins started six games last season and had two interceptions. He moved into the lineup after star cornerback Desmond Trufant was placed on IR with a torn pectoral muscle. Collins will be eligible to return to the active roster following the team's game against Seattle on Nov. 20.
