Leading Off: Pictures of the Week
Arizona quarterback Kevin Kolb somehow survived this vicious hit by Washington outside linebacker Brian Orakpo, but he couldn't hold onto the football. The turnover helped the 'Skins to a 22-21 victory and a surprise 2-0 start.
Floyd Mayweather has done it again. Some are calling his fourth-round knockout of Victor Ortiz (left) cheap and controversial, but Mayweather remains undefeated.
Jarred Haggins makes a diving catch over the middle of the field, but it wasn't enough for the Seminoles. Oklahoma retained its No. 1 ranking with a 23-13 road win.
Patriots safety James Ihedigbo seems to be filling in fine for Brandon Meriweather, who was cut by the Patriots. Ihedigbo levels Vincent Jackson to help the Patriots start the season 2-0.
Miami running back Lamar Miller had 184 yards on the ground, but no touchdowns. He was pushed out by Ohio State's Andrew Sweet here, but the Hurricanes defeated the Buckeyes 24-6 in what many dubbed the ineligibowl.
Nicolas Colsaerts of the Continental Europe Team gets out of a sand trap, but his team fell 15-12 to Great Britain and Ireland, who retain the Vivendi Seve Trophy for the sixth straight year.
Steve Smith couldn't bring this ball down inbounds during his six-catch, 156-yard performance in the Panthers' 30-23 loss to Green Bay.
Javid Best scores to put an exclamation point on the Lions' 48-3 victory over the Chiefs.
Blue Jays' outfielder Jose Bautista reaches third safely on his teammate's single because Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis cannot hold onto the throw. Toronto defeated Boston 5-4 on Sept. 14.
Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell (red) is sandwiched between two Washington cornerbacks. Quinton Richardson (28) is able to break up the pass, but the Cornhuskers came out on top 51-38 to remain unbeaten.
Notre Dame running back Cierre Woods stretches the ball across the pylon in a 31-13 home upset of Michigan State. Woods had 61 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
Redshirt freshman Bashaud Breeland (17) and the Clemson Tigers were fired up to take on Auburn at home. Clemson came out as the top Tiger for the first time since 1951 with a 38-24 victory. They snapped a 14-game losing streak to the defending national champions.
Since it doesn't look like he'll be playing for the Bulls anytime soon, Joakim Noah can put all his effort into this tip-in at the EuroBasket tournament in Lithuania. Noah's French squad fell to Spain in the tournament final.
The ball is in there somewhere! English (left) and Georgian (right) rugby squads formed this scrum during the Rugby World Cup in Dunedin, New Zealand.
Seattle left fielder Trayvon Robinson makes a daring catch on a foul ball hit by Texas Rangers' outfielder David Murphy. The Mariners would lose the Sept. 17 game 7-6.
Maryland wideout Tony Logan slides across the wet grass at Byrd Stadium as he is tackled by West Virginia linebacker Jared Barber. Barber and the Mountaineers earned a 37-31 conference victory on the road.
Blanka Vlasic of Croatia shows off her hops to her home country during the high jump event at the IAAF grand prix in Zagreb.
Eigo Sato of Japan presumably started this move off from the ground, but he looks like he's driving in the sky at the Red Bull X-Fighters world tour in Sydney, Australia.
Mets' second baseman Justin Turner can't avoid the tag from Atlanta's Brian McCann. The Braves still couldn't muster enough runs, and fell to the Mets' 7-5 on Sept. 18.
