Sports Minute: Here is the latest Gulf Coast Conference sports news from The Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Mark Ingram scored a career-best three touchdowns and the New Orleans Saints won their seventh straight game by plowing through a porous Buffalo Bills defense in a 47-10 rout Sunday. The Saints finished with 298 yards rushing and 32 first downs. Even Saints quarterback Drew Brees got involved in the run of rushing touchdowns by scrambling in from 6 yards to put New Orleans up 37-3 in the final minute of the third quarter. Trey Edmunds capped the scoring with a 41-yard touchdown run with 3:04 left.

ATLANTA (AP) - Adrian Clayborn set an Atlanta record with six sacks, Matt Ryan threw a pair of short touchdown passes and the Falcons romped to a 27-7 victory Sunday over the Dallas Cowboys, who looked anemic offensively in their first game without suspended running back Ezekiel Elliott. Clayborn and the rest of the Atlanta defensive line dominated both backup Cowboys offensive tackles, forcing two fumbles and recovering one of them.

JACKSONVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Shakayla Thomas scored 23 points for her 17th career 20-point game, and Number 18 Florida State used a 20-0 third quarter to beat Jacksonville State 75-51 Sunday. Jacksonville State's second-half scoring drought ended at 12 minutes, 59 seconds.

HONOLULU (AP) - Wesley Person led five Troy players in double figures with 17 points, including four 3-pointers, to help the Trojans beat Arkansas-Pine Bluff 81-57 Sunday night at the Outrigger Resorts Rainbow Classic. Javan Johnson scored 13 points, Jordon Varnado added 11 and Shawn Hopkins and B.J. Miller had 10 points apiece for Troy.

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) - Patton Kizzire has won his first PGA Tour title by beating Rickie Fowler over 36 holes on the final day of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Kizzire closed with rounds of 66-67 on Sunday for a one-shot victory over Fowler, who fell four shots behind until putting together a rally that came too late at El Camaleon Golf Club.
