LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas is headed to Italy for four exhibition games in Rome and Milan. The trip allowed by the NCAA every four years comes at an opportune time. The Jayhawks must attempt to replace four key contributors from last year's Big 12 championship team. They have six new players who will be heavily counted upon in years to come.

UNDATED (AP) — The traditional two-a-day football practices of yesteryear are a thing of the past.

Officials are hoping the rule change reduces the head injuries that had become all too common this time of year.
