SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Dustin Johnson apparently had high expectations after winning his first major at the U.S. Open.He didnt win the next major at Royal Troon and got rid of his beard.I finished ninth at the British, so I shaved it, Johnson said Wednesday, the big smile indicating he went with a clean look for no specific reason.Hed like to leave the PGA Championship with a new ranking -- No. 1.While his back-to-back victories at the U.S. Open and the World Golf Championship at Firestone rightly get most of the attention, its easy to overlook that he has been playing better than anyone all year.He has finished out of the top 10 only five times in his 16 starts this year, including his last six tournaments. With a tie for second last week at the Canadian Open, the 32-year-old Johnson arrived at Baltusrol with a mathematical chance to replace Jason Day at No. 1 in the world.Johnson would have to win the PGA Championship and have Day finish third or worse, or he could be the sole runner-up and reach No. 1 if Day were to finish 28th. However you do the math, its a possibility.And typical of Johnson, he wont give it much of a thought.It wont be on my mind, he said. Im going to go out and try to focus on what Ive got to do. The rest of the stuff, I try not to worry about -- or actually I dont worry about. I just go out and play golf and try to shoot the best score I can. At the end of the week, if Im on top of the leaderboard and I get to No. 1, obviously that would be great and be a big accomplishment.He was the betting favorite going into the final major of the year, mainly because of his consistently great play, and because Baltusrol is a big golf course at 7,462 yards for a par 70. And thats right up his power alley.As for the majors, Johnson is starting to set himself apart.Dating to a missed cut in the 2014 Masters, he has seven top 10s in his last nine majors, including his U.S. Open title at Oakmont.I feel like it keeps me mentally in it longer, Johnson said of the majors. When Im on really tough golf courses, I feel like Im more focused because Im really trying to hit the ball to a certain spot, instead of a lot of times when I struggle sometimes its just staying mentally focused on every shot.What sets the Lower Course at Baltusrol apart for the PGA Championship is that the A.W. Tillinghast design doesnt have a par 5 until the 17th hole, and then it ends with a pair of par 5s. That would seem to be disadvantage for Johnson, whose length can lead to easy birdies on par 5s.Or maybe not.This golf course, I hit a lot of drivers, he said. Its par 70, but its quite long. I feel like I wear out my 8- and 9-irons on the par 4s.Long course. And 8-irons and 9-irons into the par 4s.Thats his game.One of the par 5s might not be reachable, anyway. The 649-yard 17th hole is the second-longest in PGA Championship history behind the 653-yard fifth hole at Southern Hills. John Daly was the first player to hit the green in two, using a 1-iron in the 1993 U.S. Open.But with nearly two inches of rain on Monday night, and more storms in the forecast, the course is too soft to have a reasonable chance, even for Johnson. He hammered a drive during his first practice round and still had 320 yards to the hole.Then again, his wedge play has been the reason he has risen to the elite in golf, why he is one big win away from reaching the top. And finally getting his first major did little to make him satisfied.I want to win every major, he said. Maybe even more of a desire to get a second one. Germany Kevin Trapp World Cup Jersey .

The Badgers (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) were the better team in the first half and outscored the Spartans 17-0 in the third quarter.Michigan State (2-1, 0-1) was down 13-6 early in the third and had the ball in Wisconsin territory when LJ Scotts fumble bounced to Musso in the secondary.

Solomon Thomas then returned Josh Rosens fumble 42 yards for a touchdown on the games final play.Rosen passed for 248 yards for the Bruins (2-2, 0-1).

Starting tailback Damien Harris went down on the opening drive with a sprained right ankle and didnt return.Harris was hardly needed in this game, when No. 2 quarterback Blake Barnett played much of the way and the emerging freshman Jacobs ran for 97 yards. It amounted to a respite for the Tide against Kent State (1-3) after a bruising 48-43 comeback victory over No. 23 Mississippi.Hurts was 16 of 24 for 164 yards and ran for 54 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown dash on the opening drive.

Wilton Speight threw one touchdown pass. Penn State (2-2) has lost three straight to the Wolverines.Jabrill Peppers gave the fans an early thrill by returning Penn States first punt to the 9, although a bench-interference penalty moved the ball to the Nittany Lions 24. Seven plays later, Khalid Hill dove in on 4th-and-goal from the 1. The Wolverines also scored touchdowns on their next two drives. Penn State finally got a couple stops, but the Wolverines took a 28-0 halftime lead on Higdons 2-yard run.NO. 6 HOUSTON 64, TEXAS STATE 3SAN MARCOS, Texas -- DEriq King caught a touchdown pass, threw one and returned a kickoff for another score in Houstons blowout victory.King, a freshman recruited to play quarterback, is playing at wide receiver while Greg Ward Jr. directs the offense. Ward passed for two touchdowns and ran for one before leaving the game after playing one series in the third quarter. He completed 20 of 26 passes for 289 yards.King made a mistake by calling for a fair catch on the Houston 5 during a first-quarter Texas State punt. He soon compensated for that, however, catching a short pass from Ward on a bubble screen and taking it in for a touchdown from 48 yards out. Early in the second quarter, King took a handoff from Ward and threw a high pass to the end zone that Steven Dunbar pulled in for a 15-yard touchdown.King began the second half by returning the kickoff 99 yards for another touchdown.Houston (4-0) gained 563 yards and limited Texas State (1-2) to 142.NO. 10 TEXAS A&M 45, NO. 17 ARKANSAS 24ARLINGTON, Texas -- Trevor Knight had two long touchdowns runs for Texas A&M before halftime and threw a 92-yard pass to Josh Reynolds right after Arkansas was stopped three times from the 1.Reynolds caught the ball in stride just short of midfield, and quickly shed defensive back DJ Dean on his way to the end zone to break a 17-all tie and put the Aggies (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) ahead to stay. Texas A&M has won five straight against the Razorbacks (3-1, 0-1), all since joining the SEC.The long catch-and-run by Reynolds came two plays after Keon Hatcher was tackled for a 5-yard loss on fourth down, ending a 19-play drive for the Razorbacks that took 10 minutes after Texas A&M had fumbled from the Arkannsas 2.ddddddddddddNO. 23 MISSISSIPPI 45, NO. 12 GEORGIA 14OXFORD, Miss. -- Chad Kelly threw for 282 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score to help Mississippi break a 10-game losing streak in the series dating to 1996.The Rebels (2-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) dominated every phase, building a lead of 31-0 by halftime and 45-0 by midway through the third quarter.Georgia (3-1, 1-1) lost for the first time under new coach Kirby Smart and looked overmatched.

Taylor left in the third quarter with a left ankle injury.Brandon Dawkins kept the Wildcats in it, dazzling with 176 yards and two touchdowns rushing, 167 yards and another score passing. He escaped what appeared to be a sack to hit Shun Brown on a 54-yard pass , then hit Josh Kern on a 3-yard TD pass with 17 seconds left to tie the game at 28.Coleman kept the Huskies moving with Browning limited to passes underneath and scored on a 55-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
