WASHINGTON -- A member of Congress is requesting a hearing on the Washington Redskins name, calling it "another example of racial insensitivity in sports" in the wake of Donald Sterlings lifetime ban from the NBA. Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., sent a letter Friday to the chairman of the Committee on Energy and Commerce citing the derogatory nature of the word "redskins" and suggesting the committee use its influence to persuade team owner Dan Snyder and the NFL to change the name. Waxman appears unlikely to get the hearing before the committee, which is chaired by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., and oversees professional sports. "The committee really hasnt been focused on the names of pro sports teams," committee spokeswoman Charlotte Baker said Friday in an email, "and there are no plans to schedule a hearing on this issue." Waxman pointed that Los Angeles Clippers owner Sterlings recent ban resulted from racist comments made in a private, then added: "In the case of the Washington football team, the offensive conduct is public, not private." "Unlike NBA Commissioner (Adam) Silver, the commissioner of the National Football League, Roger Goodell, has publicly defended the owner," Waxman wrote. "In fact, he stated in a letter that the name is a unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect." Waxman suggested the committee could call both Snyder and Goodell as witnesses to explain "how their actions are consistent with the public interest." The Redskins declined comment on Waxmans letter. Snyder has vowed never to change the name, calling it a "badge of honour." Anthony Hitchens Jersey .J. -- Patrick Sharp is on one of those streaks. La el Collins Jersey .

Michigan State responded quickly with a three-play set for a score,, as Keith Mumphrey took an end around 33 yards to the end zone.dddddddddddd A Kirkegaard fumble on the final play of the first quarter led to a 19-yard touchdown pass from Cook to Josiah Price just over a minute into the second for a 28-7 margin. The Cowboys had a field goal blocked on their ensuing possession and a 26-yard return set up the Spartans at the Wyoming 35. Tyler OConnor took over at quarterback for Michigan State and finished a nine-play drive with a 6-yard TD pass to Mumphrey.

Krill in the final minute of the half. The Cowboys had the ball to start the second half, but Dominic Rufran fumbled after a reception on the first play from scrimmage to give Michigan State possession at the Wyoming 31. The Spartans were unable to cash in, as Cook threw incomplete on fourth down from the 7-yard line. Michigan State added to its lead late in the third on Langfords 29-yard TD run.
