Weekend sports talk: McCarron bests Manziel at College Station

September 16, 2013

Take a look back at the weekend in sports with analysis from SiriusXM’s sports team and interviews with national sports stars.

Johnny Manziel torched the Alabama defense for 464 yards passing, five passing touchdowns and 98 rushing yards, but Texas A&M fell short to A.J. McCarron (334 passing yards, four touchdowns) and the Crimson Tide, 49-42. Both quarterbacks broke down the game with SiriusXM College Sports Nation.

Matt Kenseth took home the checkered flag in the Geico 400 Sunday, the first race of the 2013 NASCAR Chase. Kenseth credited his team for the victory on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio with Claire B. Lang.

Jim Furyk joined SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio to talk about his new nickname, “Mr. 59,” after breaking 60 in the second round of the BMW Championship. Furyk leads the rain-delayed tournament by one stroke heading into the final round.

Matt Ryan (33-for-43, 374 passing yards, two touchdowns) and Julio Jones (11 receptions, 182 receiving yards, one touchdown) put on a show for the Falcons Sunday, leading Atlanta to a 31-24 win over Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams. Ryan told SiriusXM NFL Radio that it was the team’s play in the first half, and then in the fourth quarter, that led the Falcons to a bounce-back win.

Shortly after making a game-winning touchdown reception with two seconds left to lift the Buffalo Bills to a 24-23 win over the Carolina Panthers, Stevie Johnson spoke with SiriusXM NFL Radio about the come-from-behind victory and the play of rookie quarterback EJ Manuel.

George O’Leary’s University of Central Florida Knight picked up the program’s first win over a Big Ten opponent Saturday, upsetting Penn State, 34-31. O’Leary spoke about the win and his team’s 3-0 start with SiriusXM College Sports Nation.

Jeff Jarrett, the founder of TNA Wrestling, talked some fantasy football smack with Matt Camp and Joe Dolan on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. Jarrett offered a breakout wide receiver prediction for the two hosts.
