BATON ROUGE (AP) — When Joe Burrow found freshman receiver Ja’Marr Chase deep down the left sideline to the Rice two-yard line, it marked the LSU’s quarterback’s 11th completion of 15 or more yards.
And that was before five minutes had elapsed in the third quarter.
Burrow passed for a career-high 307 yards and two touchdowns in less than three quarters, and No. 10 LSU rolled to a 42-10 victory over struggling Rice on Saturday night.

With Saints, Marshall plans to rediscover ‘greatness’

in

METAIRIE (AP) — Brandon Marshall takes nothing for granted when discussing his opportunity to join the Saints’ seemingly inevitable march to the postseason.
“Let’s not jump ahead. I’ve got a lot of learning to do and a lot of catching up,” Marshall said after his first practice with New Orleans on Wednesday. “I’ve been at the top and I’m on the bottom right now.”
By bottom, the 34-year-old Marshall means getting cut repeatedly in the past couple seasons, most recently by Seattle a couple weeks ago.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — On a day that saw Jaylon Ferguson record two more sacks to move closer to the NCAA career record, Louisiana Tech’s offensive struggles in the red zone proved costly Saturday as Southern Miss defeated the Bulldogs 21-20 at M.M. Roberts Stadium.
Tech (7-4, 5-2) seemed to be in control of the game most of the way, but miscues in all three phases of the game allowed the Golden Eagles (5-5, 4-3) to stay within striking distance.
And those miscues ultimately cost the Bulldogs.

BATON ROUGE — The Louisiana Tech men’s basketball team went toe-to-toe with No. 22 LSU in a rare meeting on the hardwood, but the Bulldogs ended up falling to the Tigers on Friday night by a final score of 74-67 in front of 9,557 fans inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
The effort and the energy was there for Tech (3-1) as it has been every game so far this 2018-19 season. The Bulldogs won the rebounding battle yet again despite the length and size of the Tigers and held them to a season low in scoring (was averaging 92.0 points per game).

in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

Only you can decide if claiming Social Security at age 62 or waiting to claim later makes more sense. Lifestyle and philanthropic intentions, marital and employment status, and gender are all factors.
When do you claim?
If you’re in a position to think through your Social Security claiming schedule, do it. It could mean thousands or tens of thousands to your annual retirement income.
Here’s your choice: You can start receiving monthly payouts at the qualifying age of 62 like many people. Or you can hold out for a bigger payout down the road.

Halbrook, Andy 2016.jpg

We’ve still got a couple of months left in 2018, but it’s not too soon to start thinking about some year-end investment moves that might benefit you. Here are a few possibilities (although not all will apply to your situation): 
Add to your IRA. For the 2018 tax year, you can put up to $5,500 into your traditional or Roth IRA (assuming you are eligible), or $6,500 if you’re 50 or older. If you haven’t reached this limit, consider adding some money. You have until April 15, 2019, to contribute to your IRA for 2018, but why wait until the last minute?
