BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Tucker Rovig passed for 279 yards and three touchdowns in leading Montana State to a second-round FCS playoff victory over Albany 47-21. Rovig finished 24 for 30 with no interceptions. Montana State's other quarterback Travis Jonsen ran for 85 yards on six carries, including a 47-yard touchdown run. The 47 points is the most the Bobcats (10-3) have scored in their playoff history. The Great Danes got on the board right away when Jeff Undercuffler hit Juwan Green, who made a circus catch on the 35 and sprinted in for the score to complete a 58-yard scoring play just 1:08 into the game. The Bobcats responded with 26 straight points on a variety of plays before the half. Montana State got Jonsen's 47-yard score to tie the game on its first possession, then Isaiah Ifanse, who is the start running back, blocked a punt out of the end zone for a safety. Kevin Kassis took a pass from Rovig in from 5 yards out before Ifanse scored from the 12. Montana State got a … [Read more...] about Rovig passes for 279 yards, Montana State beats Albany 47-21

U.S. counterterrorism officials are increasingly worried Islamic State fighters captured as the terror group's caliphate collapsed in Syria will find their way back to the battlefield. The concern, they say, is most acute for the approximately 2,000 foreign fighters who are being kept in a state of limbo, held in makeshift prisons run by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces as their home countries refuse to take them back. "We've gotten kind of fatalistic about this," Russell Travers, acting director of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center, said Friday. "There's a growing likelihood that eventually we could see many of these foreign fighters again when they've broken out of prison or been released," he told an audience at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. "The greatest midterm concern is the retention of those prisoners and not bolstering the [Islamic State] ranks and not seeing a foreign fighter outflow from Syria." For months, U.S. officials at the State … [Read more...] about Chances Growing Captured Islamic State Fighters Will Return to Battlefield
Native Americans have been treated as unequals since Christopher Columbus first landed in the Americas. They’ve had their land colonized and claimed by Europeans and they have fought hard for the little land they already have. History seems to have been repeating itself. The construction of the $3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline started in late July and the local Sioux tribe and hundreds of Indigenous people have been protesting the site. The Dakota Access Pipeline, which is owned by Energy Transfer Partners LP, was scheduled to run through the Bakken region of North Dakota to South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois. The pipeline route caused a lot of controversy among the Native American community because it is being placed in the Lakota Treaty Territory at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. The route of the pipeline has potential to contaminate the Missouri River and it would also mean destroying sacred land.

The first major set of tougher regulations mandated by a sweeping overhaul of Colorado’s oil and gas rules won approval Thursday with adoption of changes intended to better map thousands of miles of underground oil and gas lines. The rules approved by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission include new requirements for testing and ensuring the integrity of flow lines and making sure out-of-use lines are shut down properly. The regulations will help implement a new law that prioritizes public health, safety and the environment when making decisions about oil and gas development. The rules also are aimed at carrying out the goal of providing people more information about the location of the oil and gas lines they live, work and drive over. Former Gov. John Hickelooper and other state officials made that pledge in 2017 after a deadly home explosion in Firestone tied to a cut but uncapped flow line. However, as The Denver Post has reported, the comprehensive public maps … [Read more...] about New state rules will create first-ever public mapping of underground oil, gas lines
Denver Post sports writer Patrick Saunders posts his Rockies Mailbag every week on Tuesdays during the season. Pose a Rockies — or MLB — related question for the Rockies Mailbag. With the current situation going on with Altitude TV (with the Nuggets and Avalanche) and reports that AT&T is looking to sell its regional sports networks, do you believe the Rockies are monitoring it and looking at other potential options for its next TV deal and whether they go into the streaming side? And what other option could they have if AT&T SportsNet and Altitude are not viable TV station options? — Brandon Boles, Estes ParkBrandon, those are excellent questions, to which I don’t have a concrete answer for you. Here’s what I do know: AT&T SportsNet has the Rockies contract through next season (2020). Bids for the new contract began mid-summer. There have been national reports that AT&T is open to selling its four regional sports … [Read more...] about Rockies Mailbag: Is Nolan Arenado frustrated with the state of the team?
