FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas put together just enough offense to beat Portland State 20-13 in Saturday's season opener, but it wasn't easy.

MOUNT VERNON, Texas (AP) — Art Briles was back at his roots Monday, coaching a high football team in Texas after a season in Italy and more than three years after the two-time Big 12 champion coach was fired by Baylor in the wake of a sexual assault scandal.

ARLINGTON, Texas —Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby addressed the large group of reporters at the league’s annual football media days without much news or concerns.

Seven months ago, Oklahoma State was on the verge of ending a bowl streak that dated back to 2006 and was one loss away from the program’s first losing season since Mike Gundy’s inaugural year at the helm of his alma mater in 2005.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Oklahoma’s Garett Reband, facing a five-foot bogey putt on the final hole gave Texas’ Parker Coody a two-foot bogey putt and the Longhorns, not the Sooners, will be taking on No. 1 Oklahoma State this afternoon at the NCAA golf championships at The Blessings Golf Club.

OKLAHOMA CITY — The series between the Thunder and Trail Blazers — which includes at least one more game, beginning at 9:30 tonight, inside Moda Center — is playing out on different levels.

OKLAHOMA CITY — The best hope Thunder Nation has as it ponders Game 3, an absolute must-win as the Oklahoma City-Portland series moves into Chesapeake Energy Arena for at least two more tussles, is its ability to believe in Paul George.

Even though they would eventually shed the final year of Carmelo Anthony’s contract, turning it into the acquisition of Dennis Schroder, the Thunder knew the signing of Paul George to a max contract last offseason meant they’d be paying a whole lot of money in salary and the luxury tax.

NORMAN —Lincoln Riley is calling it the nation’s biggest pro day. He’s likely not wrong, considering the expected attendance.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Surrounded by reporters, a larger than usual throng there to see him for the first time or simply starved for post All-Star break access, Markieff Morris smiled.

Apparently, it was not easy. However, in the end, Lincoln Riley, perhaps at the order of one of his bosses, or in a fit of common sense over pique or some convoluted sense of program interest, did the right thing.

Kyler Murray shed light on his athletic career moving forward with just one sentence Monday.
