NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Tiger Woods was watching the leaderboards, and he wasn’t alone. Woods returned to competition for the first time in 301 days, and just like his previous four comebacks from back surgeries, no one was quite sure what to expect. Matt Kuchar was among those who looked for...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Angels acquired pitcher Jim Johnson and the Atlanta Braves’ remaining $1.21 million in international bonus signing allocation on Thursday for minor league left-hander Justin Kelly, a deal that raises Los Angeles’ possible bonus offer to Shohei Ohtani to $1,315,000. Los...
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Having apparently been kept in the dark since being drafted by the Bills, rookie cornerback Tre’Davious White was genuinely curious about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s career-long dominance of Buffalo. “Uh, no, I don’t know the record. What is it?” the first-round...
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Tom Izzo is usually hard to please, consistently finding fault with his teams following victories. After No. 3 Michigan State beat No. 5 Notre Dame 81-63 on Thursday night, he looked and sounded uncharacteristically happy after a game. “I shouldn’t complain about one...

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Rob Gronkowski says he’s getting fewer ticket requests from family and friends wanting to see New England play the Bills in Buffalo because they don’t like being stuck in the upper level of New Era Field. “They don’t even ask me anymore,” the Patriots tight end and...

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Well, at least Nebraska did its part for the Big Ten in what has otherwise been a miserable Big Ten/ACC Challenge for the conference. James Palmer Jr. and Isaac Copeland scored 15 points apiece, and the Cornhuskers broke open the game late in a 71-62 win over Boston College...
