The Horns dropped to 2-4 with last week's losses to Virginia and New Mexico...

The U.S. Men's World Cup qualifier in Jamaica (Friday, Sept. 7, 7pm) will be televised after all, thanks to Al-Jazeera, whose new beIN Sport network bought all the remaining WCQ road games. Praise Allah (if you have Dish or DirecTV)! The return game, Tuesday, 7pm, in Columbus, Ohio, will be on ESPN2... In the U-20 Women's World Cup, the U.S. beat North Korea and Nigeria to advance to the final, and a rematch with Germany, who beat them 3-0 in the group stage (ESPNU, Satur­day, Sept. 8, 5:20am)...
