No. 11 Kansas State prepared for Oklahoma State

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy tends to stick to himself at coaching conventions and meetings.

Test drive: 2015 Dodge Charger gets 707-hp Hellcat engine

I recently reviewed the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat, which Dodge bills as the Most Powerful Muscle Car Ever. Considering that muscle cars are a uniquely American creation, you might be wondering why they didn't just call it the Most Powerful American Car Ever. That's because there's a tie.
