The Huskies are ranked fourth in Class 2A and are 3-0 in the Big South Conference's West Division and are 9-1 overall, while the Tigers are ranked second and are 2-0 in the division and 8-3 overall.

JCC's loss was to Rochester Mayo. Marshall has lost to Class 1A No. 1 Bethlehem Academy, Class 3A No. 5 Lakeville South and Saint Michael-Albertville. The Tigers have won the last two state titles and have won five championships since 2004.

Minnesota Vikings 34, Saint Louis Rams 6

Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson ran for 102 yards on three carries with a 67-yard scoring run off a simple pitchout and the Minnesota Vikings shut down the St. Louis Rams 34-6 on Sunday, opening impressively under new coach Mike Zimmer.

The Rams handled Adrian Peterson, limiting the All-Pro to 75 yards on 21 carries.

They had zero luck with Patterson, who had three touchdowns rushing as a rookie.

Rams quarterback Shaun Hill lasted one half as the stand-in starter for Sam Bradford, missing the rest of the game with a thigh injury and leaving untested Austin Davis in charge.

Hill's last pass was intercepted by Josh Robinson with 1:09 to go in the half, setting up Matt Cassel's 8-yard pass to Greg Jennings for a 13-0 lead.

The Vikings host New England at noon next Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium.
