    . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise
    Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite
    having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead
    in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the
    Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan
    Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield.

    . Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a
    97-78-20 record over two-plus seasons. He was dismissed by the team last March
    after the Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1
    . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the
    start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying
    the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English
    football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger
    into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted
    central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old
    Trafford. Eric

    . Luis Suarezs double powered Liverpool to a 4-0 victory over
    Fulham, and Southampton easily overcame Hull 4-1 to continue the south coast
    clubs impressive start to the season. Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea
    down to fourth place as the west London club was held to 2-2 at home.

    . Its 1987 and a Brazilian playmaker, known as
    Mirandinha, is being paraded around St James Park to the passionate Newcastle
    fans. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Opening the season on Thursday night has become quite
    the tradition for Vanderbilt, taking advantage of the chance to lure a few more
    eyes.Now the Commodores want to tweak that trend.By winning.The Commodores open
    Thursday night hosting South Carolina -- the fifth straight year theyve helped
    open the college football season. Theyve come so very close to wins over the
    past four seasons but have not won an opener at home since beating Elon in
    2011.Coach Derek Mason isnt sure if theres any benefit to being among the first
    to play each season.I like getting the season started early, Mason said Tuesday.
    Its nice to have a kickoff game that people talk about and everybody knows and
    understands when college football starts. So to hit it on a Thursday night, weve
    done it for the last couple of years, so for me its become old hat. I like where
    its at, and thats good.Being on national TV never hurts, even a team in a Power
    Five conference with its own network. The competition on Thursday night will be
    stiffer with 29 other games being played, though adding the Southeastern
    Conference opener certainly helps.The Commodores havent beaten South Carolina
    since 2008, and this gives them a big chance to kick off the season in style.
    But the Commodores have lost three of their past four season openers by a
    combined 10 points. Last years loss may have been the most painful, losing 14-12
    to Western Kentucky when Vandys 2-point conversion failed at the end to force
    overtime.The only game that wasnt close came in 2014 in a 37-7 rout at the hands
    of Temple in Masons coaching debut, a game that didnt finish until the wee hours
    of the next day because of a lightning delay.ddddddddddddVanderbilt is coming
    off a 4-8 season, and Mason has written an open letter to fans asking for their
    support Thursday night to fill up the stadium. Hes also asked students to turn
    out as well. The coach said the Commodores need momentum along with the
    opportunity to do something they havent done his first two seasons.This team
    knows how important it is just based on our recent history, Mason said. Theres
    an opportunity to win the first home opener in I dont know six years or whatever
    it is, to beat south Carolina for the first time in a long time. So theres some
    important factors for us that really dont ride necessarily on just it being the
    first game.Linebacker Oren Burks said the Commodores see opening on Thursday
    night as an opportunity to showcase themselves on a national stage.Its Thursday
    night, all eyes are on you, Burks said. Theres not a lot of games ... Im excited
    for this season.Vanderbilt has 15 starters back, including seven from a defense
    that ranked 28th nationally in total defense last season and 22nd allowing 21
    points per game. Kyle Shurmur started five games last season at quarterback, a
    job he has a firm hold on this season.Weve all been chomping at the bit to get
    ready for this game, Shurmur said. Were all ready to go and were real excited.
    Anytime you can get it two days earlier a game, its great.--Online:AP College
