LeBron very un-LeBron in opening loss to Knicks

CLEVELAND (AP) Shortly after showering, and maybe rinsing off a forgettable performance, LeBron James smiled and laughed as he dressed for a flight to Chicago. ''It was one game,'' he said. James moved on quickly. It may take Cleveland a little longer. This championship-deprived city, which had waited months to celebrate James' return from Miami with a rip-roaring...

Florida State not shocked by another rally

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) As bad as Jameis Winston and second-ranked Florida State looked in the first half against Louisville, the second half offered plenty of time to recover. More impressive than rallying from a 21-0 deficit for a 42-31 victory was the gutsy poise displayed by the Heisman Trophy quarterback and his teammates. Winston overcame three interceptions with three second...

Saints get their revenge, beat Panthers 28-10

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) While much of the talk was about whether New Orleans could win a big game - or any game, for that matter - on the road, the conversation in the Saints' locker room was about something completely different.

LOS ANGELES This star-filled day on Sunset Boulevard glimmered with expectation and promise, but it unfolded only after a period of reflection and truthful deliberation for a league in the midst of squandering the opportunity available in Los Angeles.

No. 12 Baylor finally gets chance to get over loss

WACO, Texas (AP) Bryce Petty and No. 12 Baylor had to sit on that loss an extra week. ''If I had my choice I would have much rather been on the field,'' the senior quarterback said. ''Actually, I did not watch many games.'' The Bears (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) are still in a solid spot to win another Big 12 title if they get back to winning games. But they...

Wildcats need a win to keep B10 West hopes alive

A look at what to watch in the Big Ten this weekend: GAME OF THE WEEK: If Northwestern has any chance to stay alive in the Big Ten West, it must win Saturday at Iowa.

Matured Nebraska QB Armstrong set to face Purdue

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Tommy Armstrong Jr. has grown up a lot since he last faced Purdue.

Texas, Texas Tech look to rebound

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas and Texas Tech are far removed from 2008. The teams met on Nov. 1 that year - like Saturday's game - when the Longhorns were the country's top-ranked team and the Red Raiders were No. 6.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) On a Kansas team that has already fired its coach, lost every conference game and played in front of dwindling crowds, there has been one bright spot.

Michigan tries for 19th straight win over Indiana

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) As poorly as Michigan's season is going, a loss to Indiana would be a significant low point. The Wolverines have won 18 straight games against the Hoosiers and 33 of the last 34 in the series, a run of dominance that has withstood the downturn in Michigan's fortunes in recent years.
