With Army clinging to a 28-21 lead, Chris Carnegie returned his second interception 99 yards up the left sideline for a touchdown to lift the Black Knights to a 35-21 win over UConn, their first victory at Yankee Stadium since 1960.
UConn is in an unusual position this week, coming off a victory and favored to win again.
Police on Friday were searching for a reputed ticket scalper who allegedly fought officers as they tried to arrest him in front of Yankee Stadium last month.
Manager Joe Girardi has Jeter sitting out the series opener on Friday night against the Boston Red Sox. Jeter has said he will play during the weekend series out of respect for the rivalry.
The perfect script. Jeter capped his Yankee Stadium farewell with the game-winner in the bottom of the ninth, the latest — and perhaps last — storybook moment of his career.

The highlight reel of Derek Jeter’s career is pretty obvious. And it will take you about 30 seconds to ﬁnd it on your phone. My memories are the ones that aren’t on YouTube.
While some these days may celebrate Rosh Hashanah saying “L’shanah tova,” in any language, universally, Yankees fans should wish each other a “Happy 2 Year!”
Yankees fans were closely watching the forecast on Wednesday night, as a nor’easter was bearing down on the area.
Joe Girardi wasn’t sure what would happen if Jeter and the Yankees were rained out. “That’s a great question,” he said. “I’m sure it would upset a lot of people.”
Derek Jeter began his final series at Yankee Stadium by breaking open the game with a two-run double, and he had three RBIs to lead the New York Yankees over the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 Monday night.
