    It may have been a disappointing season for the Missouri Tigers, but the program is looking to turn a corner, and its starting by renovating Memorial Stadium and the teams facilities.On Friday, the school announced?that the timeline for the project is moving along nicely and released a video showing off the renderings for Memorial Stadiums expansion.The project is expected to cost $90 million to $100 million and will include a football-operations center, premium-seating areas and new concession areas for fans.We talk all the time about building a championship-level program, and this is a vital part of that vision. Its exciting to be part of this process. Were creating something that will transform our facilities for years to come, head coach Barry Odom said. I cant thank our donors enough for their amazing generosity so far, and Im confident that theyll help us reach our goals.As Missouri enters its second year under Odom, the team will look to build off its strong end to the season.

Matt Besler got back to the U.S. team hotel after training on the eve of the United States World Cup qualifier at St. Vincent and the Grenadines when his cellphone came to life.I had a message from my wife just saying, call me ASAP, and I had that feeling that something was happening, he said.Back in Kansas City, Kansas, Amanda Besler felt her water break and went into labor two weeks early. On a Caribbean island, there was no way Matt Besler could return home quickly.Parker Rhea Besler was born at about 6:45 a.m. local time Friday, and about nine hours later her daddy scored his first international goal, helping the United States to a 6-0 win that moved the Americans into prime position to advance to the final round of World Cup qualifying.I always knew that it was a risk coming down here, the 29-year-old Sporting Kansas City defender said. At the same time, you have to live your life and come down here. There was about a 48-hour window where I knew that I was pretty much here and stuck here just due to the travel conditions. It would have been impossible to get back in time, and thats why I decided to stay. I was just going to try to make the best of it, and Ill get to meet my baby girl soon enough.Christian Pulisic, the Americans 17-year-old attacker, entered in the second half and scored twice off passes from Sacha Kljestan.

He scored when MLS teammate Graham Zusi lofted a free kick, and Nazir McBernettes headed clearance attempt went toward the defender. Besler chested the ball and knocked it in with his left foot from about 4 yards.For whatever reason, I could feel the ball gravitate to me at the back post, so I was ready for it, he said.Besler was surrounded by a half dozen teammates in a rocking-the-cradle celebration reminiscent of Bebetos at the 1994 World Cup. He had told U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Friday morning that he was in the right frame of mind to play.Its already a special day, but I wanted to even make it even more special and play in this special game, he remembered saying.The 26th-ranked United States (3-1-1) is second in Group C behind Trinidad and Tobago (3-0-2), which tied visiting Guatemala (2-2-1) later Friday. With a plus-13 goal difference to Guatemalas plus-1, the Americans are virtually assured of reaching the final round hexagonal in North and Central America and the Caribbean when they host Trinidad on Tuesday at Jacksonville, Florida.ddddddddddddA T&T win Friday would have clinched berths for both the Soca Warriors and the Americans, but Carlos Ruiz got his second goal of the game in the 87th for visiting Guatemala, which finished a man short.Pulisic and Kljestan entered midway through the second half. Pulisic scored in the 71st minute off a pass from Kljestan, who had not played for the national team since March 2014, and the 30-year-old Kljestan tapped in a cross from Pulisic seven minutes later.

A 17 years, 349 days, he also is the youngest with a two-goal game. He wore the No. 10 jersey -- Landon Donovans old number -- for the first time.Obviously its an honor, Pulisic said. I know some great number 10s have been out there, but I was just given the number, so Im excited to wear it.Klinsmann attributed the decision to equipment manager Jesse Bignami.I always say the number 10 has a meaning. Theres no doubt about it, the coach said before adding with a laugh: Ask him now a question how he feels with that heavy number on his back.Game notes Right back DeAndre Yedlin was given a yellow card for a 13th-minute foul and will be suspended for Tuesdays game, when Tim Howard is slated to start in goal. ... 156th-ranked St. Vincent (0-5) has been outscored 25-3. ...
