Vols say they're better prepared for this test

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is about to get a sense of how far its come - and how far it still has to go.

When Tennessee visits No. 4 Oklahoma on Saturday, the Volunteers will be carrying a 2-0 record into a road game with a top-five team for the second straight season. Last year, the Volunteers got trounced 59-14 at No. 2 Oregon. Now they want to show the lessons learned since that disastrous trip.

Vols defensive tackle Danny O'Brien says that "I don't know if last year we had as much positive thought as we do on this team, this young team. Everybody's expecting to win."

Tennessee, seeking its first 3-0 start since 2004, is a 20 ½-point underdog against an Oklahoma team that has distinct advantages in experience and size.


Aybar leads surging Angels beat Rangers, 7-3

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Erick Aybar hit a two-run home run early and eight Angels pitchers combined for a 7-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Thursday night, giving Los Angeles its eighth straight win.

Los Angeles won for the 14th time in 16 games and moved 10 games ahead of second-place Oakland in the American League West with 16 games to play.

Aybar homered against Nick Martinez in the second inning to put the Angels ahead 2-1. David Freese had a two-run single in the third and Kole Calhoun's RBI single in the seventh made it 5-1. Pinch-hitter Grant Green added a two-run single in the eighth.

Mike Morin, the fifth Los Angeles pitcher, got the win. He entered the game to retire Elvis Andrus with the bases loaded in the fourth and also worked a scoreless fifth inning.

Leonys Martin and J.P. Arencibia had solo homers for the Rangers.


Healthy Murray clear leader of Cowboys' run game

IRVING, Texas (AP) - After DeMarco Murray fumbled his first carry of the season, the Dallas Cowboys sure didn't stop giving him the ball.

They didn't even hand off to another running back.

Now that Murray has been mostly healthy for almost two years, the bruising back rules the running game for the Cowboys.

The fourth-year player who set a franchise record with 253 yards rushing the first time he was the featured back as a rookie in 2011 is now piling up the starts without an injury getting in the way.

Murray bounced back from his fumble to finish with 118 yards and a touchdown against San Francisco. Now he goes for his ninth career 100-yard game Sunday at Tennessee.
