Pitt’s Jordan Addison Transferring To USC

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Pitt All-American receiver Jordan Addison is transferring to Southern California. Addison was named the top receiver in college football and announced his decision Thursday on social media. It ends several weeks of speculation on where the winner of last season’s Biletnikoff Award would go. Addison entered the transfer portal before the May 1 deadline and visited Texas and USC before choosing the Trojans. Addison has a close relationship with new USC quarterback Caleb Williams, who transferred from Oklahoma. Addison had 100 receptions for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns with Pitt last season.

NHL; Bolts Win Late; Blues Knot Series

UNDATED (AP) – The Tampa Bay Lightning needed almost all of regulation to win on Thursday.  Ross Colton scored with just 3.8 seconds left in regulation, giving the Lightning a 2-1 victory and a two-games-to-none lead in their second-round series with the Panthers. Tampa Bay had just killed off a penalty to Steven Stamkos when Colton scored right in front of Sergei Bobrovsky. The penalty kill also left Florida 0-for-25 on the power play this postseason.  The Bolts scored on their first power play chance as Corey Perry deflected a shot past Bobrovsky 12:06 into the game. It remained 1-0 until Eetu Luostarinen beat Andrei Vasilevskiy  with 1:53 remaining in the second period. Game 3 is Saturday in Tampa.    Meanwhile, The Blues have knotted their second-round series at a game apiece as David Perron scored twice, including the game-winner in a 4-1 victory at Colorado.  Perron’s power-play goal put St. Louis ahead, 2-0 with 34 seconds remaining in the second period. He also delivered the insurance goal midway through the third period after Gabriel Landeskog netted a power-play goal to draw the Avalanche within 2-1.  Jordan Kyrou also scored on Darcy Kuemper, Brandon Saad added an empty-netter and Pavel Buchnevich had two assists for St. Louis. Kuemper turned back 28 shots.  Jordan Binnington made 30 saves for the Blues, who host Game 3 on Saturday.

McIlroy Leads In Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Rory McIlroy blasted his driver over trees and into fairways, setting up some of his seven birdies that carried him to a 5-under 65 and a one-stroke lead through one round of the PGA Championship at Southern Hills in Tulsa.  This was McIlroy’s lowest start to par since a 5-under 66 when he won the PGA at Valhalla in 2014, the last of his four majors.  Will Zalatoris and Tom Hoge are at 4 under, one shot ahead of Matt Kuchar, Justin Thomas and Abraham Ancer.  Tiger Woods struggled with his irons while carding a 4-over 74.
