Foxborough, MA (Sports Network) - A late own goal from Bobby Shuttleworth was the difference at Gillette Stadium on Saturday as the Houston Dynamo came away with a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution. Jean-Francois Berube Islanders Jersey . Adam Moffat and Saer Sene exchanged goals in the span of six minutes, but it was Shuttleworths misfortune that cost the Revs a share of the spoils as New England (6-6-6) drops to .500 on the season. Houston (8-6-5) wins its second straight league match to improve to 29 points on the season. After a scoreless opening period, Houston needed just four minutes to get in front after the restart as Moffat buried a blast from 25 yards out. It took New England just six minutes to draw level as a parried cross fell right to Sene, who turned the loose ball into the back of the net from close range. The two sides remained tied until the 79th minute when a bit of fortune helped the Dynamo take the lead once more. Moffat unleashed another shot from distance that struck the post and came back into play, but the ball deflected off of Shuttleworth and ended up in the back of the net. New England was left no way back after Dimitry Imbongo was issued a straight red card three minutes later for taking a swipe at Bobby Boswell. Mathew Barzal Islanders Jersey . -- Kyrie Irvings last-minute 3-pointer helped seal another victory for Cleveland -- and the Cavaliers longest winning streak since LeBron James left. Josh Bailey Jersey . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. Last weekend was the best opening set of games I have seen in my three decades of covering the SEC. I cant promise that this Saturday will give us the same amount of drama, but here are some significant storylines to watch:Kentucky tries to break the streak The last time Kentucky beat Florida in football, Ronald Reagan was president. That would be 1986 when the Wildcats beat the Gators 10-3 in Lexington. Since then it has been 29 straight years of misery for Kentucky, which has had half a dozen very close games with Florida in that span but has not found a way to win.The last time the two teams played in Gainesville, Kentucky had a 27-20 lead in the first overtime. The Wildcats forced Florida into a fourth down and the play clock appeared to wind down to zero. But a delay of game was not called and Jeff Driskel hit Demarcus Robinson for a touchdown to tie the game. Florida went on to win in triple overtime 36-30.So Kentucky hasnt beaten the Gators for three decades. Its been even longer since the Wildcats won in The Swamp, which last happened in 1979.Kentuckys stated goal this season is to get to a bowl. Its going to be hard for the Wildcats to get to six wins if they dont get it turned around soon. They host New Mexico State on Sept. 17.Tennessee and Virginia Tech make history This game has been years in the making and finally it will happen on Saturday (8 p.m. ET, ABC) when Tennessee and Virginia Tech meet at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee. It took workers 19 days to transform the quarter-mile NASCAR track into a football facility that is expected to draw 150,000 fans, which would be a record for an American football game. The current record is 115,109 which was set during the Notre Dame at Michigan game in 2013.By the way, this is not the first time the Bristol Motor Speedway has hosted a football game as the NFLs Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles played there in 1961.While everyone is getting caught up in what will be a unique event, this is an awfully important game for Tennessee. The Vols were fortunate to escape with a win over Appalachian State on Sept. 1 at home. They need to take care of business against the Hokies, who have a new head coach in Justin Fuente.Vandy-MTSU in the I-24 Backyard Brawl Vanderbilt and Middle Tennessee State are separated by only 34 miles on Interstate 24. And if history is any indicator it will be close when they meet on Saturday at Vanderbilt Stadium (4 p.m. ET, SEC Network Alternate).A year ago the Commodores needed a 39-yard touchdown run by Ralph Webb with only 1:12 leftt to beat the Blue Raiders 17-13. Anthony Beauvillier Islanders Jersey. . It snapped a three-game losing streak to MTSU, which posted victories in 2001, 2002, and 2005. It was Vanderbilts first trip to Murfreesboro since 1920.Vanderbilt (0-1) needs to get back on track after last weeks 13-10 conference loss to South Carolina, a game in which the Commodores led 10-0 at halftime.A few other quick storylines to watch on Saturday:Arkansas (1-0), which barely got past Louisiana Tech (21-20) will go on the road to meet TCU (1-0), its former rival in the Southwest Conference. In fact, the two teams have not met since Oct. 5, 1991, which was Arkansass last year in the SWC before joining the SEC in 1992. Arkansas won that game, rallying from a 21-0 deficit to win 22-21.A side note on this one: The starting quarterback for TCU will be Kenny Hill, who began his career at Texas A&M in 2014 before transferring to TCU. Hill sat out last season due to NCAA transfer rules.Alabama (1-0) will be going for its 16th straight win over teams from the non-Power Five conferences when the Crimson Tide host Western Kentucky (1-0).Georgia running back Nick Chubb made a triumphant return from injury when he carried 32 times for 222 yards in a 33-24 win over North Carolina. It will be interesting to see how many carries he gets in the home opener with Nicholls, especially with road games against Missouri and Ole Miss coming up the next two weeks.LSU (0-1) will try to bounce back from a disappointing 16-14 loss to Wisconsin with a home game against Jacksonville State (1-0). Remember that Jax State took Auburn into overtime last season before losing 27-20.South Carolina (1-0) will try to go to 2-0 in the SEC under first-year coach Will Muschamp when the Gamecocks travel to Mississippi State (0-1). The Bulldogs lost to South Alabama 21-20 last week after leading 17-0 at halftime.Ole Miss will debut some major renovations to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium when the Rebels host Wofford. The school has spent over $54 million on the stadium since the end of last season. Alabama comes to Oxford on Sept. 17.Auburn (0-1) needs to get back on track after losing its opener to No. 2 Clemson last week 19-13. The Tigers will start Sean White at quarterback against Arkansas State. Auburn will open SEC play next week against Texas A&M.Missouri (0-1) which lost its first game under new coach Barry Odom last week to West Virginia, hopes to fare better against Eastern Michigan.
