    Seymour Siwoff, the statistics maven who turned the Elias Sports Bureau into the place to go for exact information on teams and athletes for more than a half-century, died Friday. He was 99.

    Siwoff owned Elias for more than 70 years before selling it to his grandson in March 2018. He started as an accountant in 1938 and purchased the company in 1952.

    Elias was started in 1913 by brothers Al Munro Elias and Walter Bruce Elias and became official statistician of baseball's National League in 1919. It is now the official statistician for MLB, NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLS and the NBA G-League.

    Elias also works with broadcasters and sports networks such as ESPN, MLB Network, NFL Network, Turner Sports, Comcast and NESN.

    Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith left Friday's 5-2 loss to the visiting Colorado Avalanche with a groin injury midway through the second period after logging 9 minutes, 30 seconds of ice time.

    Chicago coach Jeremy Colliton said Keith wouldn't travel to Denver for Saturday's rematch with the Avalanche, but Colliton didn't know the severity of the injury to the 36-year-old who's likely to become a Hall of Famer.

    "Hopefully he'll be back soon,'' captain Jonathan Toews said. "Not used to being out there without a guy like him."

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Bryce Perkins' week ended better than it started.

    Virginia's quarterback, who had a huge day in the Cavaliers' 39-30 victory against No. 23 Virginia Tech on Friday, said after the game that he spent last Saturday night in the hospital overnight after contracting tonsillitis during the Cavaliers' 55-27 victory over Liberty.

    'They were trying to work some antibiotics into me," he said. "Monday, I went to the doctor because my tonsils were really swollen and they had to drain my tonsils. ... I was awake through all of it and they were surprised I was able to play against Liberty."

    EDITOR'S PICKS
    Perkins, late FG lift Virginia past No. 23 Hokies, 39-30
    He missed practice Monday, and practiced Tuesday still not feeling 100 percent.

    Perkins said he's feeling better now, and it showed against the Hokies, who had beaten the Cavaliers 15 times in a row.

    He completed 20 of 33 passes for 311 yards and a touchdown, and ran for 164 yards and two long touchdowns.

    The victory not only ended the losing streak, but put Virginia in the ACC championship game next week against No. 3 Clemson. It will be the first appearance in the game for Virginia, and the Cavaliers' appearance completes a seven-year run in which each of the seven teams in the division has won the title once.

    LINCOLN, Neb. -- It was cold and damp, Iowa had the ball at its 26-yard line with 32 seconds left in regulation in a tie game, and the Hawkeyes' offense hadn't done much since the first quarter.

    Instead of being content to play for overtime against border rival Nebraska, coach Kirk Ferentz went for the win Friday.

    The Hawkeyes got it when Keith Duncan kicked a 48-yard field goal with one second left, giving No. 17 Iowa a 27-24 victory over Nebraska that leaves the Cornhuskers out of the postseason for a third consecutive season.

    "We thought we had a chance if we executed," Ferentz said. "There's some risk and reward involved there. We thought the reward outweighed the risk. At least we came out the right side this time."

    The Hawkeyes (9-3, 6-3 Big Ten) beat the Huskers (5-7, 3-6) for a fifth straight year and second year in a row on a late field goal.

    Duncan, who walked on with Iowa in 2016, had more to celebrate than just helping the Hawkeyes hold onto the Heroes Game trophy for at least another year. Ferentz announced after the game that he was giving Duncan a scholarship.

    "The culmination of all these four years of hard work," said Duncan, who also kicked a 49-yarder against the Huskers and now owns the Big Ten single-season record with 29 made field goals. "These 12 weeks have been really hard for us, just working 100 percent. There's been some setbacks, but we finished here. Team goals will lead to individual goals, and that's where we are today."

    Iowa, which saw its 14-point lead wiped out in the third quarter, got the ball back after forcing a Nebraska punt in the final minute. A long Nate Stanley completion to Nico Ragaini was overturned on video review, but Stanley then completed a pair of 22-yard passes to Ihmir Smith-Marsette and Sam LaPorta to bring on the reliable Duncan.

    The Huskers called two timeouts before Duncan drilled the winner down the middle and with plenty of distance.

    "Every field goal I'm hungry for, especially in a situation like that with tough conditions," Duncan said. "That's why you become a kicker. You've got to be hungry and not scared."

    Nebraska, down 24-10 at half, tied it with back-to-back touchdowns in the third quarter. Luke McCaffrey entered the game for a play in place of quarterback Adrian Martinez, rolled to his left and hit JD Spielman with a perfect 39-yard TD pass. The Huskers ran on 12 of 13 plays while covering 60 yards on their next drive, converting a fourth-and-6 before Wyatt Mazour ran in from 9 yards.

    Smith-Marsette scored on a 45-yard on a reverse run and ran back a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown and Tyler Goodson broke a 55-yard TD run as Iowa got out to its lead in the first half.

    Iowa had 18 plays for 191 yards in the first quarter but just 131 yards on 38 plays for the remainder of the game. Iowa gained 11 yards in the second quarter and 7 in the third.

    Stanley completed 11 of 24 passes for 99 yards, his lowest total since throwing for 86 against Maryland last season. Goodson ran 13 times for a season-high 116 yards.

    The Huskers are in their longest bowl drought since 1955-61, but coach Scott Frost is encouraged by the progress he saw during the second half of the season.

    "There's a lot of things that needed to get fixed, and I think a lot of those have been addressed," Frost said. "I think when you plant a seed, you don't necessarily see sprouts right away. There's a lot going on underneath the ground before you see things shooting out of it. I know a lot of things have gotten better."

    EPENESA'S BIG DAY

    Preseason All-America defensive end A.J. Epenesa set career highs with 14 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and two sacks in Friday's victory.


    "You always love to win this game," Epenesa said. "They joined the Big Ten not too long ago but it's turned into a pretty hard-headed rivalry between the two of us. If it's between whose corn is better, which team you like more or what state you're from, there's a lot of pride on both sides of this. When you can come out and win it, especially in other people's stadium, it adds a little extra to it."

    THE TAKEAWAY

    Iowa: This was a hard-fought win for the Hawkeyes and one they'll savor because it came against their border rival. Except for the big-play touchdowns, their offense continued to be middling.

    Nebraska: The Huskers dropped to 0-6 against Top 25 opponents over two seasons under Frost.

    POLL IMPLICATIONS

    Iowa will stay in the Top 25 thanks to Duncan's late field goal.
