ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Corey Perry and defenseman Sami Vatanen scored power-play goals in the first period, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 on Friday night for their seventh consecutive victory.
John Gibson, starting in net for the first time since losing 6-4 in his hometown of Pittsburgh on opening night, faced just 17 shots as the two-time defending Pacific Division champions improved to 7-1. Last season, the Ducks also won seven straight after a season-opening loss at Colorado.
Scott Hartnell had a power-play goal for the Blue Jackets and Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves.
Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf scored into an empty net with 2:27 remaining.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Gunner Kiel threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score before hurting his ribs again, and Munchie Legaux took it from there Friday night, scoring a notable touchdown of his own while Cincinnati pulled away to a 34-17 victory over South Florida.
The Bearcats (4-3, 2-1 American Athletic) took advantage of the Bulls' many mistakes and got their second straight lopsided win. They also came away with more worries at quarterback.
Kiel has played the last five games with bruised ribs. He aggravated the injury on a scramble in the closing seconds of the first half, which finished with the Bearcats up 20-3.
The Bulls (3-5, 2-2) switched quarterbacks but couldn't pull off a second straight comeback. They had the biggest comeback in school history a week earlier, rallying from a 27-7 halftime deficit to a 38-30 win over Tulsa.
Legaux, who overcame a career-threatening knee injury early last season, had an emotional moment early in the fourth quarter. He ran 9 yards on his rebuilt left knee for his first touchdown since his comeback, slid on his knees at the back of the end zone and put his head on the ground, cradling the ball.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A Beaver Stadium crowd of more than 100,000 will be wearing the dominant color of Penn State's iconic yet plain helmets when the Nittany Lions host No. 13 Ohio State on white-out night.
The place will be really loud. And that's just the way Buckeyes defensive end Joey Bosa likes it.
Bosa, one of the best pass-rushers and play-disrupters in the nation, says he plays better when he's in foreign territory and challenged by a raucous, partisan stadium.
The Nittany Lions (4-2, 1-2 Big Ten) are hoping to end a two-game skid on Saturday night. The Buckeyes (5-1, 2-0) might just be the hottest team at the college level right now, winning four in a row by an average score of 56-17.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Bengals receiver A.J. Green is expected to miss a pivotal AFC North game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday because of an injured right big toe.
The Pro Bowl receiver was listed as doubtful on Friday. He's missed the last two games with the injury, suffered during a season-opening win in Baltimore. The Ravens (5-2) can take control of the division with a win over the defending champion Bengals (3-2-1) at Paul Brown Stadium.
Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict was listed as probable with a strained neck. He's missed two games because of concussions.
Cornerback Leon Hall also was probable. He had to leave a 27-0 loss to Indianapolis last Sunday with a back injury.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- Oakland Raiders cornerback DJ Hayden could be activated from the physically unable to perform list in time for Sunday's game in Cleveland.
Hayden completed his second week of practice Friday but has yet to be fully cleared to play. The 12th overall pick in 2013, Hayden underwent foot surgery in the offseason -- his fourth operation since suffering a near-fatal heart injury in college.
Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano has been encouraged by Hayden's progress and noted the biggest hurdle the second-year cornerback needs to clear is conditioning.
The news isn't as encouraging for defensive end LaMarr Woodley and safety Usama Young. Both are expected to be placed on injured reserve before the winless Raiders play the Browns. Woodley has a biceps injury while Young is out due to a knee injury.

-- UCLA blew a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter before quarterback Brett Hundley scored on an 8-yard touchdown run in double overtime to give the 25th-ranked Bruins a 40-37 victory over Colorado. Hundley rushed for 110 yards and also threw for 200 yards and one TD.
UNDATED (AP) -- Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has signed a seven-year extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The $98 million deal makes McCoy the highest-paid player at his position.

LONDON (AP) -- When Detroit and Atlanta square off Sunday in London, the Lions won't have defensive tackle C.J. Mosley on the sidelines. He was sent home on Saturday and suspended by the Lions for an unspecified violation of team rules. Detroit says in a release that Mosley engaged in detrimental conduct and is suspended for two weeks. The 31-year-old Mosley has played in all seven games this season for the Lions, with no starts. He has 2 1/2 sacks.
FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) -- Titans running back Shonn Greene was arrested for allegedly parking in a handicapped space and speeding away while an officer was issuing him a citation. Franklin, Tennessee, police Sgt. Charles Warner says Greene surrendered Friday night after being told warrants had been obtained for his arrest. Greene was released on $2,000 bond. He is due in court Nov. 13.
UNDATED (AP) -- Not only did the Sabres win a game this afternoon, they actually scored more than one goal.
Cody Hodgson and Nicolas Deslauriers (deh-LOHR'-ee-ay) scored during the first six minutes of the third period to give the Sabres a 2-0 lead in a 2-1 victory over slumping San Jose. The Sabres had scored just once in their last 14 periods of play before Hodgson beat Alex Stalock (STAY'-lahk) with 16:17 left. Deslauriers gave Buffalo its first two-goal lead since Oct. 14 at Carolina, the only other time the Sabres have had a multi-goal lead this season.
Michal Neuvirth (NOY'-vahrth) made 15 of his 29 saves in the final period to help the Sabres improve to 2-7-0.
San Jose has dropped four straight since a 4-0-1 start.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cavaliers have exercised the fourth-year contract option on guard Dion Waiters. The fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft by Cleveland, Waiters will start in the Cavs backcourt with Kyrie (KY'-ree) Irving.
The Cavs were expected to pick up the option worth $5.1 million on Waiters, who averaged 15.3 point last season.
ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) -- There's a two-way tie for the lead after the third round of the PGA's McGladrey Classic in South Carolina.

Russell Henley is one back.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Marco Dawson is the leader through 36 holes of the three-round AT&T Championship in San Antonio. Dawson followed Friday's 65 with a 5-under 67 for a one-shot edge over Woody Austin in the season-ending Champions Tour event.

HAINAN ISLAND, China (AP) -- American Jessica Korda is the leader after two rounds of the rain-shortened LPGA event in China. She rebounded from an opening hole double bogey for a share of the lead with South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace. They stand 11-under-par.
