Olesiak next man up for Stars

FRISCO, Texas - Much is expected from Jamie Oleksiak, but such is one's lot in life when you're a first-round pick in the NHL Draft like the hulking young defenseman was for the Dallas Stars in 2011, when he was taken 14th overall. Oleksiak has been in the NHL several times before, but this is the first time that the young d-man known as the "Big Rig" has started...

Cowboys don't fall for Giants' trap, improve to 6-1

ARLINGTON, Texas – It had all the makings of a trap game. The Cowboys were rolling at 5-1, the Giants were reeling after getting embarrassed the week be-fore. Good NFL teams lose games like this all the time. It happens every weekend in the NFL, especially when divisional rivals meet. Even when one of the rivals is as injury-riddled as the Giants. It didn't help that professional...

Won't be long until Texas is back as Swoopes grows into leader

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas was a different team Saturday night against Iowa State.  The defense didn't dominate as it did through much of the first half of the season, but quarterback Tyrone Swoopes and the offense were in rhythm and finally finished a game with a win.  "You look at our offense, and you watch 'em grow up, and you watch Tyrone get better and better every...

Stars lose focus in tough loss to Flyers

DALLAS - Much like in soccer, a two-goal lead can often be the worst thing to have in hockey. That's exactly where the Dallas Stars stood after two periods, ahead 4-2, against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night at American Airlines Center. But by the time the final horn sounded with 2:11 left in overtime, Dallas had been outscored 4-1 the final 22:11 and lost 6-5 thanks...

Banister brings a new presence to the Rangers

Try being the last guy that Alex Banister brought home to meet her father Jeff. The meeting included a handshake with a purpose. Banister said he just wanted the young man to know how things stood with him. The guess is that the guy got the message from Banister, who was officially introduced as the 18th full-time manager for the Texas Rangers Friday. The intense Banister made it...

Texans unable to complete comeback in loss to Colts

HOUSTON - Another week, another slow start for the Houston Texans as they lose to the Indianapolis Colts 33-28 on Thursday night.

Texas DC Bedford: A lot of Sooners probably wish they were Longhorns

The Red River Showdown isn't the Big 12's marquee game this year, but the passion for the rivalry is still there.

The Longhorns aren't in the conference or national title conversation, but they're playing for something just as important on Saturday.  "It'...

Bielema thinking positive after Arkansas meltdown

ARLINGTON, Texas -- For three quarters, it look as if Arkansas was going to get a statement win with an upset of No. 6 Texas A&M and send a message to the rest of the SEC that it's back.  But penalties throughout the game proved costly in a 35-28 overtime loss at AT&T Stadium on Saturday.  The Razorbacks were able to pound the ball all afternoon with 285 yards rushing...

Watt's TD catch fuels Texans' win vs Raiders

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - J.J. Watt has spent his NFL career disrupting offenses, batting down passes and piling up sacks. Now there's another skill he can bring to the table. Watt caught a 1-yard touchdown pass, Arian Foster ran for 138 yards and a score and the Houston Texans won their second straight game to open the season, beating the Oakland Raiders 30-14 on Sunday.

IRVING, Texas -- No matter how bad things get this season, don't expect Dez Bryant to throw Tony Romo under the bus after a poor outing. It's been clear throughout Bryant's career that he's going to support Romo even after a three-interception performance like he had Sunday. "Tony is the quarterback," Bryant said Thursday. "He's my quarterback and...

The best and worst of the Big 12: Week 2

There's plenty to cover in this week's best and worst wrapup. Let's get to it.  Best offensive performance: Jake Waters, QB, Kansas State Waters takes the early lead for the gutsiest performance we've seen from a Big 12 talent this season. He took a beating with 20 carries and rallied K-State from a two-touchdown deficit on the road in a conference game. He finished...

Big 12 thoughts: Week 2

The Big 12 put together a solid performance in Week 2. Here's what stood out to me. Mike Gundy needs to roll the dice with Daxx Garman. The reaction from OSU wasn't necessarily frenzied horror when J.W. Walsh made his way to the locker room for X-rays on his right lower leg. I'd say it was more curiosity, and I'm betting Mike Gundy and Oklahoma State liked what they...

Game won't be the same without Washington

Jerry Jones said Friday that he never considered selling a Dallas Cowboys Michael Sam jersey. Why not? Sam had one of the NFL's hottest-selling jerseys after he was drafted by St. Louis in May.

Chicken fried hot dog debuting at Texas A&M game
