SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — What happens when you put Peyton Manning, Miss Universe, an orange-and-blue leprechaun and 200 TV cameras into the same room? Answer: Super Bowl Opening Night. The NFL took a good idea gone surreal — what used to be known as “Media Day” — gave it a new name, added a...
WACO, Texas (AP) — Connor Lammert and the Texas Longhorns aren’t backing down in the Big 12. Not against No. 15 Baylor or Rico Gathers, the Bears’ big man who was being watched by a scout from the NFL’s Buffalo Bills on Monday night. Texas got its sixth win in seven games, never giving up the...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville’s last game left a lot of room for improvement, with guard Damion Lee looking to make amends for a subpar performance. Facing No. 2 North Carolina offered plenty of motivation for Lee and the 19th-ranked Cardinals, who recovered from a loss with a performance...
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic has a new goal for the year. He calls it the Djoker Slam. The No. 1-ranked player has one thing missing from his fast-growing collection of 11 Grand Slam trophies. “The French Open. It’s the one I never won,” Djokovic said early Monday, after winning...
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Steve Birnbaum and the U.S. men’s national team both need some time to shake off an up-and-down 2015 season. The defender and his American teammates all got off to a fine start on that process Sunday. Birnbaum headed home the tiebreaking goal on Michael Bradley’s corner...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — John Scott sat on his teammates’ shoulders while fans chanted “M-V-P! M-V-P!” and the NHL finally got out of the way. The people spoke up for Scott once again Sunday night, making the career journeyman enforcer an All-Star MVP as a write-in candidate after voting him into...
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Brandt Snedeker called it one of the best rounds he ever played, one he doubts he could repeat if he had to start over. Still to be determined was whether his 3-under 69 in a raging wind and occasional rain Sunday at Torrey Pines would be good enough to win the Farmers Insurance...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — They’re here. The Denver Broncos arrived in the Bay Area on Sunday for Northern California’s first Super Bowl since 1985, followed soon after by the Carolina Panthers. Denver’s flight into San Jose, California, was delayed by an hour. The team flew in a customized United...

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — It was far from pretty. It still counted as a victory — finally — for the Orlando Magic. The Magic rallied from 14 points down, then had to hold on for dear life in the final minute before securing a 119-114 win over the Boston Celtics that snapped an eight-game losing...
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Peter Jok had 22 of his 26 points in the second half to help third-ranked Iowa blow past Northwestern 85-71 on Sunday. Jarrod Uthoff scored 23 points for the Hawkeyes (17-4, 8-1 Big Ten), who sent Northwestern to its fifth straight loss. Uthoff shook off his season-low...
