Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: Ranked Miami meets Pittsburgh on the gridiron, while the Yankees battle the Rays, and The TOUR Championship gets going in Atlanta.

Colliding on the gridiron . . .

The fourth week of the college football season kicks off on Thursday with No. 19 Miami at Pittsburgh. The Hurricanes (1-1 SU, 0-1 ATS) will be looking to bounce back from a 36-24 road loss to Ohio State last time out. Jacory Harris went 22-of-39 for 232 yards passing with one touchdown and four interceptions for Miami in that defeat. The Panthers (1-1 SU, 0-1-1 ATS) picked up an easy 38-16 home win over New Hampshire in their most recent game, as Tino Sunseri went 24-of-34 for 275 yards with two TDs and one INT. Miami is a 3-point road favorite for Thursday’s game, with the total at 50.5.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The American League schedule for Thursday has Seattle at Toronto, Kansas City at Cleveland, Texas at Oakland, and Tampa Bay at the Yankees. David Price (17-6, 2.79 ERA) will take on CC Sabathia (20-6, 3.05 ERA) in that Rays/Yankees matchup. Lefthander Price had to settle for a no-decision against the Yankees back on September 13 despite giving up just three hits over eight shutout innings. Tampa Bay is 8-2 in Price’s last 10 starts. Lefthander Sabathia also picked up a no-decision in that September 13 contest, giving up only two hits over his eight scoreless innings. Sabathia fanned nine batters in that matchup, and New York has won seven of his last 10 games.

Over in the National League on Thursday it’s St. Louis at Pittsburgh, Houston at Washington, San Francisco at the Cubs, Florida at Milwaukee, San Diego at the Dodgers, and Colorado at Arizona. Jeff Francis (4-5, 4.61 ERA) is slated to get the ball for the Rockies in that last matchup, while the Diamondbacks counter with Ian Kennedy (9-9, 3.79 ERA). Lefthander Francis was tagged with a loss by the Padres last time out, giving up two runs on five hits over just three innings of work. Righthander Kennedy is coming off a no-decision against the Pirates in which he gave up two runs in six innings.

Rounding out the Roundup . . .

Finally, the PGA Tour wraps up its FedExCup playoffs starting on Thursday with The TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. Phil Mickelson is pegged as the oddsmakers’ 7/1 favorite to win this tournament, and he’s also the defending champion. Steve Stricker and Dustin Johnson are tied for second at 9/1 odds to grab the win, with Matt Kuchar just behind that trio at 10/1 odds. Kuchar sits atop the FedExCup standings heading into the event, with Johnson, Charley Hoffman, Stricker, and Paul Casey rounding out the Top 5. Each of those five golfers can win the FedExCup with a victory in Atlanta this week. Mickelson sits in 10th place in the FedExCup standings right now.
