NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Lincoln Riley is still getting used to his new job as head football coach at Oklahoma. The 33-year-old was promoted from offensive coordinator in June after Bob Stoops abruptly stepped down, and it's been a whirlwind since. He expects to be more comfortable by the time the Sooners open the season Sept. 2 against Texas-El Paso.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU sophomore guard Jaylen Fisher isn't going with the team to Australia after tearing a meniscus in his left knee at practice. While the men's and women's teams from TCU left for a 12-day foreign trip, the school said Fisher remained home to receive proper medical care. Fisher averaged 9.9 points a game as a freshman last season when TCU won the NIT championship.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma receiver Nick Basquine will miss the season because of an Achilles tendon injury. The team says he was hurt during practice Friday. Basquine caught 20 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns last season. Quarterback Baker Mayfield calls Basquine one of the team's hardest workers and says he was going to be a "huge, huge part of our offense."
