COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Maryland says Randy Edsall will coach the Terrapins at top-ranked Ohio State amid reports that he will be fired.

"Randy Edsall is our head football coach and he'll be on the sidelines Saturday against Ohio State," the school said Thursday in a statement.

Maryland is 2-3 overall and 0-1 in the Big Ten this season, the 57-year-old Edsall's fifth at the school. He's 22-33 overall at Maryland after going 74-70 in 12 seasons at Connecticut.

After the game at Ohio State, the Terrapins have a week off before playing Penn State at home October 24th.


BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- The Browns are still a little jumpy over an offside call late in last week's loss at San Diego.

Cornerback Tramon Williams was penalized when he appeared to beat the snap before Chargers rookie kicker Josh Lambo pushed his 39-yard field-goal attempt to the right. The ball was moved 5 yards closer and Lambo drilled a 34-yarder after time expired for a 30-27 win.

Browns special teams coordinator Chris Tabor said Thursday that he believes Williams timed the snap perfectly and did not commit a penalty. Browns coach Mike Pettine would not divulge what the NFL told the team regarding its review of the contentious play.

League spokesman Michael Signora said it did not have the right angle of the play and its video is inconclusive.

Williams said discussing the matter now is irrelevant since the Browns lost.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- An investment bank hired by Indians owner Paul Dolan has identified a potential minority partner for the franchise and may be near a deal.

Steve Greenberg, managing director of Allen & Company, a New York-based financial boutique that has brokered sports acquisitions in the past, said Thursday the search has narrowed on a "small group." Greenberg said the hope is the deal would be finished by the end of the year.

Greenberg said a minority owner will ease the financial burden on Dolan and help bring stability to the Indians, who finished 81-80 this season and missed the playoffs for the second straight year.

The Dolan family has owned the Indians since 1999.

UNDATED (AP) -- A busy day of play in the baseball playoffs has gotten under way with an extra inning affair in Toronto. At the end of nine innings the Rangers and Blue Jays were tied at 4-4 and it remained that way through 12. Visiting Texas won the opener last nigh 5-3.

The second game of the Houston at Kansas City series is under way in KC. After winning the opening game last night the Astros have taken 4-1 lead in the early going.

Later in the day, play begins in the NLDS with the Cardinals hosting the Cubs in the first contest. A pair of former Boston pitchers are squaring off in this one as Jon Lester goes for the Cubs against John Lackey. The Cubs advanced by eliminating Pittsburgh in the National League wild-card game.

And this evening in Los Angeles, the Dodgers and Mets open their best-of-five series in what looks to be a good pitching matchup. Reigning Cy Young and league MVP Clayton Kershaw gets the ball for the home team against 2014 Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom. Despite his great regular season success, Kershaw hasn't done much in the post season as he is 1-5 with a 5.12 ERA in six playoff series since 2008.

In a non-playing note from this game, veteran Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will not be behind the mic for any of this year's playoff games for the Dodgers. The 87-year-old underwent an undetermined medical procedure and his doctors have recommend rest.


SEATTLE (AP) -- Lloyd McClendon is out after two years of being manager of the Seattle Mariners. New general manager Jerry Dipoto has made the decision so he can bring in his own field boss to take over Seattle's on-field operations.

The Mariners were 76-86 this season.


ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy says he could miss another three games because of a pulled left hamstring. That's the timetable McCoy says he was provided by the team's medical staff after he aggravated the injury in a 41-14 win at Miami on Sept. 27.

He called the new injury a "grade-two pull" and acknowledged he might have come back from the injury too soon.

McCoy was hurt on Aug. 18, and returned for Buffalo's season opener against Indianapolis on Sept. 13.


HOUSTON (AP) -- Brian Hoyer has his job back as Houston's starting quarterback. Hoyer won the job out of camp but was pulled in the fourth quarter of a season-opening loss to the Chiefs after committing two turnovers. Ryan Mallett has started since then, but he has struggled and Hoyer took over in both of the last two games as the Texans fell to 1-4.

The Texans have 10 days before they'll try to get back on track when they travel to Jacksonville on Oct. 18.


UNDATED (AP) -- Mike Babcock returns to Joe Louis Arena tonight, but as the coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He left the Red Wings in the off season to take over the Toronto franchise. The Toronto at Detroit game is one of six on the schedule tonight.

In Columbus, the Blue Jackets and Rangers play the first-half of a home and home. A year ago, New York won three of the four games between the two clubs.

New Jersey is home to Winnipeg while the defending champion Blackhawks are facing the Islanders on New York's ice and the Kings are hosting the Coyotes. The game marks the professional debut of Max Domi (DOH'-mee) with Arizona. He is the son of former NHL player Tie Domi. The younger Domi was the first round pick of the Coyotes in 2013.


ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Defenseman Simon Despres (SEE'-mohn DUH'-pray) has agreed to a five-year, $18.5 million contract extension with the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks open their season on Saturday with a game against San Jose. The 24-year-old was a first-round pick by the Penguins in 2009, and rose through Pittsburgh's minor-league system before the club traded him to Anaheim for defenseman Ben Lovejoy.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Atlanta Hawks' player Thabo Sefolosha (tah-BO' sehf-ah-LOH'-shuh) missed the playoffs earlier this year with a broken leg he says he suffered during a fracas with New York City police. A Manhattan jury has now found Sefolosha not guilty of misdemeanor obstructing government administration, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

The incident took place outside a trendy New York City nightclub.

Prosecutors say he disobeyed police orders to clear the street after another NBA player was stabbed outside the club on April 8.

The Swiss national says he was moving up the block and trying to give a beggar money when officers grabbed him.
