CHAMPAIGN, Ill. Rihanna Puma Creepers Norge . -- A year ago, a 48-14 win over Illinois got North Carolina going and propelled the Tar Heels on a run to the ACC championship game and a bowl.Coming off a 33-24 season-opening loss to Georgia that knocked them out of the Top 25, the Tar Heels could use a repeat performance Saturday when they travel to Illinois.It would be a confidence booster, receiver Ryan Switzer said. The 2016 team hasnt won a game yet. Were going into a Power Five team who had a good showing in week one, whos got new energy and a new staff, and a night game at their own place.The Illini are one big win into the tenure of new coach Lovie Smith. That 52-3 victory over Football Championship Subdivision school Murray State was nice, Smith said, but Saturdays game is a bigger deal.I dont know how North Carolinas looking at the game -- the way the beat us up last year, you know, he said. But for us, its a big game, and a true measuring stick to see where we are.Things to watch for Saturday when North Carolina visits the IlliniEFENSIVE FRONTNorth Carolina gashed the Illini for 254 yards last year, 130 of them by then-sophomore tailback Elijah Hood. But the Illinois defensive line lived up to its billing in this seasons opener as the strength of the team, holding Murray State to minus-10 yards rushing and sacking Racers quarterbacks six times. Holding Hood in check might mean the Illini will see more of quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who produced just 156 yards on 24-of-40 passing against Georgia and threw more than Tar Heel coach Larry Fedora intended.When you start to get behind the chains the whole time, and youre in long yardage situations, its tough to sit in there and say were going to run the football. Ive never done that, Fedora said.HOODS WORKLOADHood was one of the ACCs top runners with 1,463 yards and 17 touchdowns last year, but he got just 10 carries for 72 yards against Georgia while UNC threw 40 passes. Hood is a tackler-punishing runner with the ability to wear down defenses. Getting him going on the road would be a big help.GOING DEEPThe Tar Heels like to take deep shots in their fast-paced offense, but Trubisky failed to connect on a couple that could have changed the Georgia game. When the Tar Heels offense is humming, theyre churning out big yardage totals and pushing the tempo to wear down defenses. Fedora was pleased Trubisky protected the ball in his first start, but said he needed to do a better job with his footwork on those long balls.The offense will work, just do what youre taught to do, Fedora said. And I think he was trying to do too much.STOP THE RUNUNC came into the year knowing it would have to improve its run defense, but it didnt happen against the Bulldogs and Nick Chubb. Georgia ran for 289 yards in the opener, and the Tar Heels have now surrendered 1,561 yards on the ground in the last four games dating to last season. UNC has to reverse that trend soon.ILLINOIS ON THE GROUNDThe run game the Tar Heels will be trying to stop churned out 287 yards and four touchdowns against an overmatched Murray State defense. But only 49 of those yards belonged to starting tailback KeShawn Vaughn. Illinois stuck with Vaughn, giving him 17 carries in a game it had in hand early. A more productive Vaughn will help pound the North Carolina defense and keep the Tar Heel offense off the field.---AP Sports Writer Aaron Beard in Chapel Hill, North Carolina contributed to this report.---Follow David Mercer on Twitter: (at)davidmercerAP---Online: Associated Press college football coverage: collegefootball.ap.org Puma Sko Dame Rihanna . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. Puma Fenty Norge .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. http://www.rihannapumanorge.com/puma-basket-heart-sko/puma-heart-denim.html . LUCIE, Fla. CHICAGO -- Kris Bryant came to the plate in the eighth inning a triple shy of the cycle. The Cubs slugger was trying for a little more.My last at-bat I was thinking home run, Bryant said. There arent too many games you can hit three home runs.Bryant settled for an RBI single to cap a 5 for 5 day with two homers, a double and five RBI. He helped Chicago overcome a career-high seven walks by Jake Arrieta to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-6 Thursday for a four-game sweep.I dont feel like this too often, Bryant said, This was just one of those days when I was really locked in.Bryant tied Colorados Nolan Arenado for the NL lead with 30 home runs.And as the Cubs won for the 18th time in 21 games and improved the best record in the majors to 77-43, the only controversy in their jovial clubhouse is whether Bryant or teammate Anthony Rizzo is the better NL MVP candidate.Two days after a circus catch of a foul ball, Rizzo doubled twice off Zach Davies (9-6). Rizzo has driven in 86 runs and Bryant 78.(Rizzo) always jokes around me saying when Miguel Cabrera won the Triple Crown, Prince Fielder was hitting behind him, Bryant said. So he always tells me Im his Prince. I cant say enough about having him behind me.Chicagos ace welcomed Bryants big day with the wind blowing out. The Cubs led 5-0 when Arrieta (15-5) issued a pair of two-out walks in the fourth. Kirk Nieuwenhuis followed with a three-run homer.Hernan Perez hit a solo homer in the sixth off Arrieta, who allowed four runs and three hits in 5 2/3 innings.Aroldis Chapman worked the ninth for his seventh save with the Cubs.I put myself in a tough situation, Arrieta said. The first three (innings) were good. It kind of got away from me there, but we had a big day out of the offense.Bryant singled and scored in the first, hit a two-run homer in the third and had an RBI double in the fourth off Davies. Bryant hit a solo homer off Blaine Boyer in the sixth and added an RBI single in the eighth off Corey Knebel for his second career five-hit game.Bryant, who hit 26 homers while winning the NL Rookie of the Year in 2015, had his third multihomer game of the season.

Davies allowed a season-high seven earned runs and 10 hits in four innings.The Brewers got left fielder Ryan Braun back after he banged up his left knee and ankle chasing a foul ball Tuesday. But Braun went 0 for 5 and couldnt come up with Addison Russells fly that drifted to the wall and was ruled a single in Chicagos three-run third.Milwaukee was outscored 23-8 in the series and fell to 0-6 at Wrigley Field, while Bryant helped the Cubs move 34 games over .500 for the first time since Sept. 2008.Hes one of the best hitters in the game. He can hit any pitch, any mistake, Davies said. Youve got to be extremely focused on every pitch when he does to bat.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: RHP Chase Anderson (quadriceps) was scheduled to play catch, two days after leaving in the first inning when he was hit by a line drive. If hes healthy, well be able to use Chase out of the bullpen for a couple days this weekend and hell start at some point next week, manager Craig Counsell said.Cubs: Manager Joe Maddon said theyll decide in the next couple of days if RHP John Lackey (shoulder) will make his next scheduled start Tuesday.CONTRERAS MOVES UPWillson Contreras caught Arrieta for the first time. The 24-year-old rookie has moved ahead of struggling veteran Miguel Montero.Contreras hit an RBI double in the third and picked off Ramon Flores at first in the fifth. He also had two passed balls.CUBS TORMENTEROf Nieuwenhuis 11 homers, five have come against the Cubs. The center fielder also doubled and scored in the eighth.UP NEXTBrewers: LHP Brent Suter will be recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs and make his major league debut Friday night at Seattle against LHP Wade LeBlanc (2-0, 4.68 ERA).Cubs: RHP Kyle Hendricks (11-7, 2.19) starts Friday night at Colorado to begin a nine-game trip against the Rockies and LHP Tyler Anderson (4-4, 3.42).
