BATON ROUGE, La. -- Ed Orgeron held both arms in the air as he emerged from the Tiger Stadium tunnel for his first game as LSUs interim coach. Derrius Guices long, crowd-thrilling touchdown runs ensured Orgeron would leave Death Valley in an even better mood.In LSUs first game since the firing of coach Les Miles, and with star running back Leonard Fournette sidelined with ankle soreness, Guice rushed for a career-high 163 yards and three touchdowns, leading LSU to a 42-7 victory over Missouri on Saturday night.You could feel the electricity in the stadium, said Orgeron, a Louisiana native, who walked off the field beaming after his players gave him a celebratory drenching with a bucket of sports drink and handed him a game ball. This is Tiger Stadium. This is what its supposed to be.Guice scored the games first touchdown on a zig-zagging, 42-yard run in which he left several would-be tacklers grasping at air before using his speed to race away for the final yards. He added TDs from 4 and 37 yards before the first half ended.Orgeron has got everybody flying around the field, Guice said.We did everything faster tonight, Guice added. That allowed us to make big plays in the running game, including some that the offensive line broke open.Darrel Williams added a career-high 130 yards and three short touchdowns for LSU (3-2, 2-1 Southeastern Conference), which finished with 418 yards on the ground.Im glad they won and glad they performed well because now they can believe in what were doing, Orgeron said.Missouri (2-3, 0-2) struggled to sustain drives and didnt score until executing a reverse pass from receiver Eric Laurent to quarterback Drew Lock with 6:11 left in the game. LSU dominated time of possession, 42:33 to 17:27 and ran 82 plays to Missouris 60. LSU also finished with 634 yards -- the school record for an SEC game- to Missouris 265.They handed it to us in every area. I feel like I got my tail kicked tonight and we did as a program, first-year Mizzou coach Barry Odom said. I have great belief with all my soul that were a much better football team than that and we will be going forward.Lock limited LSUs formidable pass rush to two sacks by throwing quickly. But LSUs secondary didnt allow many easy throws. Lock, who came in averaging 377 yards passing, finished 17 of 37 for 167 yards and was intercepted once by TreDavious White on a long, over-thrown pass.Miles, arguably the most successful coach in LSU history after winning 77 percent of his games -- including the 2007 national title -- in 11-plus seasons, was fired last Sunday, the day after an 18-13 loss at Auburn. That game marked the second time this season LSUs offense looked stagnant in a loss to an underdog that was not ranked at the time of the game.Orgeron promised stylistic changes under new offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger and delivered early with four receiver sets and enough passes to keep Missouris defense honest. But statistically, LSU looked a lot like some of Miles most dominant teams, with more yards and scoring on the ground than through the air.LSU QB Danny Etling completed 19 of 30 passes for 216 yards and did not turn the ball over.We spread them out a little bit, Orgeron said. We started throwing the football, loosened them up on the run.THE TAKEAWAYMISSOURI: Stats can be deceiving. Mizzous offense, which came into the game leading the SEC, has looked far less prolific against teams from Power 5 conferences than the overmatched Eastern Michigan and Delaware State of the second-tier Football Championship Subdivision.LSU: Miles is out as coach but theres no questioning the talent he brought in. Its clear LSU was ready to play under Orgeron and could be a tough out for its remaining opponents.EJECTEDEach team had a player ejected for targeting and each team had another player thrown out under a new rule in college football that sends players to the locker room for two personal fouls in a game. LSUs Xavier Lewis and Missouris Brandon Lee were ejected for targeting. LSU offensive lineman Andy Dodd and Missouri defensive lineman Charles Harris were ejected in the second half for unsportsmanlike conduct fouls. Those fouls counted as their second personal fouls because every player on both teams had been assessed unsportsmanlike conduct penalties for a brief scuffle near midfield at the end of the first half.POLL IMPLICATIONSAfter falling out of the AP Poll last week, LSU could very well jump right back into the ranking with its emphatic rebound from its last-second lost at Auburn.UP NEXTMISSOURI: After a bye next weekend, Missouri will visit Florida on Oct. 15.LSU: A clash with historical rival Florida in the Swamp next weekend is on tap for LSU, marking the first road game of the Orgeron era.---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Nike Cortez Australia.

So it goes for the New York Yankees and many of their ailing stars this season. Kevin Youkilis needs back surgery and Mark Teixeira returned to the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with inflammation in his right wrist, the latest injury setbacks for the depleted Yankees. And while the team hopes to have Teixeira back early next month, Youkilis will miss at least 10 to 12 weeks. The corner infielder has a herniated disk and is scheduled for surgery Thursday in California. "It doesnt look like he will be a player for us until late September," manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday. Tuesday nights game between the Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers was postponed by rain. It will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday. Youkilis signed a $12 million, one-year contract with New York as a free agent in December to fill in at third base for Alex Rodriguez, who is recovering from hip surgery. But the three-time All-Star has played in only 28 games and is batting .219 with two home runs and eight RBIs. "Its not how you draw it up, theres no doubt about that," general manager Brian Cashman said. "He looked great in the spring. We had high hopes. He obviously did so much for Boston over the years and hes the type of player that if you could draw it up, thats the type of player we would want: a gamer with power and plate discipline." Youkilis was sidelined from April 28 to May 30 with a lumbar spine sprain. He returned for a couple of weeks before complaining of discomfort again after an 18-inning loss in Oakland last Thursday. He went back on the disabled list Friday and was examined in California by Dr. Robert Watkins, a noted back specialist. "He had played four days in a row and I think it was something he had and it just manifested itself," Girardi said. An MRI showed the herniated disk, and Watkins will perform the operation. "At least Dr. Watkins found what was ailing him," Cashman said, adding the club plans to go with what it has on the roster until Rodriguez is ready to play third again. That means rookie David Adams is likely to get an extended opportunity at the hot corner. Adams is batting .213 with two homers and seven RBIs. "The timetable for Alex was after the All-Star break and hopefully that is still the case. We just need people to step up in the meantime," Girardi said. Of course, the Yankees also are missing injured shortstop Derek Jeter and his backup, Eduardo Nunez, along with outfielder Curtis Granderson, catcher Francisco Cervelli and pitcher Michael Pineda. Granderson returned from a broken right wrist in mid-May only to get hit by another pitch days later and land on the DL on May 25 with a broken knuckle on his left hand. New Yorrk has used the disabled list 16 times already this season, one shy of last years total.dddddddddddd Teixeira missed the first 53 games because of a torn sheath in his right wrist. Both he and Youkilis returned from their previous DL stints on May 31. The switch-hitting first baseman got off to an encouraging start when he came back but has slumped to a .151 average with three home runs and 12 RBIs in 53 at-bats. "I believe he was healthy when he came back. It could have been just the swings, the games, that got to him a little bit," Girardi said. "Theres not really hesitation in my mind that makes me believe that he wont be back when the 15 days is up." Hoping to work his way out of his slump, Teixeira said he tried taking a few extra swings Saturday off a tee, which he hadnt been doing because the wrist was sore. After that, he said his wrist didnt feel right during the game. He left the team during its West Coast trip, went back to New York and received a cortisone shot Sunday. "The MRI showed what I thought it was going to show," Teixeira said. "I didnt think it was re-torn. Something was just injured. When you gradually just get sore, you know, OK, Ive got some inflammation in there, Ill need some time off. I was pretty sure thats what it was." Cashman said Monday that Teixeira probably would be sidelined at least a week, and he was leaning toward putting the slugger on the DL. Teixeira said he feels pretty good swinging from the right side, but he wouldnt want to be solely a platoon player. Instead, hell try to let the injury heal without surgery and stick to switch-hitting. Looking back to his rehab stint with Double-A Trenton, Teixeira said he played 19 out of 20 days. "Thats probably just too much. If maybe once a week I take a day off, just to let it rest, if I can do that all year thats great. Obviously 19 out of 20 is too much. We learned that the hard way," he said. "That first week I felt great," Teixeira added. "I probably overdid it a little bit. Its something I might have to manage all year. ... We tried it, now we have to take a step back." In other moves, the Yankees recalled outfielder Zoilo Almonte and right-hander Adam Warren from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Right-hander Chris Bootcheck was designated for assignment. NOTES: LHP Ian Clarkin and the Yankees agreed on a $1,650,100 signing bonus, pending the results of his physical. Thats the slot value assigned to the overall No. 33 pick, where Clarkin was selected in this months draft out of James Madison High School in San Diego. During the draft, MLB Network showed a video in which Clarkin said he "cannot stand" the Yankees. He apologized the next day, saying the remarks were taken out of context and meant to tease his mother, a Yankees fan.
