JOLIET, Ill. -- Brian Scott is the top qualifier for Saturday nights Nationwide race at Chicagoland Speedway. Scott turned a lap of 177.807 mph to earn his second pole of the season and No. 4 for his career. He won his first Nationwide Series pole at Chicagoland on Sept. 17, 2011. "Guys worked hard, weve got a good setup in this thing," Scott said. "I was really happy with it in the long run, and its nice to have clean air here when you start up front. So hopefully everything will play into our favour and well be able to go to Victory Lane." Scott was followed by Richard Childress Racing teammate Ty Dillon at 177.643. It will be Dillons 10th top-10 start of the year. "It can be a great thing," Scott said. "We can work together. We can get cleared off the back and hopefully work and do a little drafting in the first couple laps to get a little separation and then we can settle in and ride." Chase Elliott, Erik Jones and Sprint Cup regular Kasey Kahne round out the top five. Kyle Larson, another Sprint Cup regular, qualified in the 12th position. Regan Smith, who leads the series standings, got the 15th spot. Smith also was on top of the standings when the series made its first of two stops at Chicagoland last year. Smith then slid into the infield on Lap 129 and finished 13th. Vinny Testaverde Jersey .

Seth Roberts Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.Las Vegas, NV (SportsNetwork.com) - One of two games on the Saturday schedule to feature a pair of nationally-ranked programs, No. 15 Oklahoma is set to take on No. 16 Washington as part of the MGM Grand Showcase at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Despite having lost a pair of games already, the Sooners are actually ranked one spot higher than the Huskies due to the tougher competition on the schedule in the early going. Oklahoma already has victories over UCLA and Butler, with the teams defeats coming against Creighton (65-63) and Wisconsin (69-56). Since the setback to the second-ranked Badgers late last month, Oklahoma has responded with three consecutive wins, the most recent being an 85-53 thrashing of in-state rival Oral Roberts on Tuesday. As for the Huskies, they are one of only a handful programs still undefeated heading into the weekend. The team is perfect through nine games for the first time since 2005-06 when they started 11-0 under head coach Lorenzo Romar, who is now in his 13th season in Seattle. While the team does have an impressive win against San Diego State (49-36) a couple weeks back, more recent wins over Eastern Washington and Grambling have not carried as much weight. This is just the fourth meeting between the two programs, with the Sooners having won two of the previous three. However, the most recent encounter was won by Washington, 96-91, during the Great Alaska Shootout back in 2004. Oral Roberts led by a basket early in the game against the Sooners, but that advantage was short-lived as the visitors made a total of just 10 field goals in the first half and shot 33.3 percent for the game, en route to the 32-point blowout loss. Aside from Jordan Woodard who tallied eight points, to go along with eight assists, every Oklahoma starter scored in double figures led by Buddy Hield with 16 points and TaShawn Thomas with 14. Isaiah Cousins and Ryan SSpangler both dropped in 13 points, the latter also clearing 10 rebounds -- all at the defensive end of the floor.dddddddddddd Hield currently leads four players scoring in double figures with his 16.0 ppg, although he is shooting just 38.3 percent from the floor. He makes up for that somewhat with his 37.7 percent accuracy behind the 3-point line, while clearing 5.4 rpg. Spangler has three double-doubles on the season and is close to averaging one at the moment with 10.0 ppg and 8.4 rpg. While the defense was staunch against Grambling, giving up only 38 points, thats still more than the nationally-ranked Aztecs tallied back on Dec, 7. Nevertheless, Washington ran all over the Tigers by forcing 17 turnovers and holding the visitors to only 23.3 percent shooting from the field as they built a massive 45-13 advantage at the break and continued to run away in the second half on Wednesday night at Alaska Airlines Arena. Shawn Kemp Jr. scored a game-high 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the floor, followed by Andrew Andrews with 16 points, converting 4-of-8 beyond the arc. Off the bench the Huskies were given a huge lift by Robert Upshaw and his double-double consisting of 15 points and a game-high 15 rebounds, while Mike Anderson responded with 10 points, six boards and five assists. Bidding for a double-double of his own was Nigel Williams-Goss with nine points and a game- high 11 assists. Williams-Goss has shown himself to be a complete player, outside of his mere 25.8 percent shooting beyond the arc, as he leads Washington in scoring (14.6 ppg) and assists (62) and is also one of the better rebounders on the squad with 5.4 rpg. Upshaw, who has come off the bench in all nine games, is responsible for 10.9 ppg and a team-high 7.1 rpg, not to mention a total of 43 blocked shots, placing him among the nations leaders in that category entering the weekend.
