Chris Paul leads march to voting site at N. Carolina college

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — NBA star Chris Paul led nearly 2,500 people on a march to an early-voting site at a historically Black college in North Carolina where he also takes classes.

Paul was part of the “March to the Polls Part 2” event held Tuesday at Winston-Salem State University, Winston-Salem Journal reported.

The basketball star told reporters during the event that it was necessary to encourage students to vote “given the magnitude of the election and everything that is going on right now.” Paul had previously said that he would be encouraging HBCU students to head to the polls.

Some students, including Je’den Clark, the school’s student government association president, said the point guard’s attendance attracted large crowds. Campus police blocked traffic to allow for the march,

Responders break up party of thousands during University of South Carolina football game

Authorities in Columbia, S.C., said a party with “at least a couple thousand people” was broken up during a University of South Carolina football game on Saturday.

Columbia Fire Department spokesperson Mike DeSumma told The State, a South Carolina newspaper, that at least 2,000 people were discovered at an apartment complex near the university with most not social distancing or wearing masks. 

The crowd of mostly young adults allegedly violated Richland County’s mask mandate and South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster’s (R) executive order on social distancing, DeSumma said. 

He said that the department responded to the party after a call about a medical emergency close to halftime, adding that people at the party threw bottles at responders.

“There were so many people there that our responders had trouble getting in,” DeSumma told The State. “If we had come out for a fire or an emergency situation it would have been

AP Top 25 poll: Texas A&M jumps in, North Carolina falls out of top 10 in college football rankings

Texas A&M’s climb in the Associated Press Top 25 continues as the Aggies have entered the top 10 in the latest rankings. After a comfortable 28-14 win over Mississippi State on Saturday, Texas A&M came in at No. 7 in the AP poll. A&M was previously ranked as low as No. 18 following a blowout loss to Alabama, but two straight wins over the Florida and Mississippi State have made Jimbo Fisher’s team one of the hottest in college football. In all, the SEC has four teams in the top 10. 

Conversely, North Carolina’s time as a top-five team was short-lived. The Tar Heels fell nine spots to No. 14 after their 31-28 loss at Florida State on Saturday. North Carolina had risen quickly up the AP rankings since its season began, ascending from No. 12 to start the year to No. 5 within a matter of weeks. However, after

North Carolina vs. Florida State score: Seminoles hang on in second half to stun No. 5 Tar Heels

Yet another top-10 team has lost as the 2020 season moves forward. No. 5 North Carolina came into Saturday’s game against Florida State as two-touchdown favorites but exit on the wrong end of a 31-28 loss, taking the Tar Heels off the list of unbeaten teams this season. 

From the start, it was clear that North Carolina would not be waltzing over the Seminoles. Quarterback Jordan Travis hit a quick 23-yard touchdown run — his first of two on the night. By the second quarter, Florida State was up 24-0 thanks in part to spectacular play from the defense. The Seminoles played particularly well in the trenches, intercepting quarterback Sam Howell and returning it for a touchdown. The Noles also had a key fourth-down stop and stymied a two-point conversion attempt. In all, this was probably the best Florida State’s defense has played this year. 

Of course, nothing about a
