TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Whoever emerges as Alabama's starting quarterback has a built-in safety net in the backfield. When in doubt, the Crimson Tide's Jake Coker or Blake Sims can always hand off. Alabama features a strong group of tailbacks in T.J. Yeldon, Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake.

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Jeremy Johnson will be Auburn's starting quarterback against Arkansas, and Nick Marshall will play in the game. That's about all Tigers coach Gus Malzahn would say about the situation on Tuesday. He had previously said Marshall and cornerback Jonathon Mincy wouldn't start in the game after legal issues over the summer.

NEW YORK (AP) - Juan Lagares hit a two-run homer and ran down one ball after another in center field, sending Dillon Gee and the New York Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Gee stopped the longest losing streak of his career at five games.

ATLANTA (AP) - Elena Delle Donne scored 17 of her 34 points in the fourth quarter, including the winning jumper as the Chicago Sky rallied from 20 points down to beat the Atlanta Dream 81-80 Tuesday night to advance to the Eastern Conference finals. Erika de Souza scored 18 points for Atlanta and Angel McCoughtry had 17.
