PENN STATE and Temple open the football season against each other on Sept. 5 in Lincoln Financial Field. The teams are also scheduled to play in 2016 in State College. It's unclear when they might meet again. The Big Ten announced two years ago that each of its member schools would begin playing nine conference games a season in 2016, the first time that has been the case since 1984. That means that those schools will be limited to three nonconference games, and that the future is hazy for the PSU-Temple series, which dates back to 1931 and has seen the teams square off 43 times.

BRADENTON, Fla. - Domonic Brown underwent an MRI exam Friday, a day after he was removed from a game because of a sore left Achilles tendon. The results showed no tear but revealed moderate tendinitis, a team spokesman said after the team's 6-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. He is listed as day-to-day, but it could be a week until he returns to the field. The rightfielder said his Achilles has been bothering him for two weeks. He left Thursday's win against the New York Yankees in the third inning.

Florida State's redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston reaffirmed his Heisman Trophy candidacy on Saturday, putting up career-highs with 393 yards passing and five touchdowns as the No. 8 Seminoles (5-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) demolished No. 25 Maryland, 63-0, in Tallahassee, Fla. The lopsided score tied the point-differential for the worst loss by a Top 25 team all-time. No. 11 Texas lost, 66-3, to UCLA in 1997. Things went from bad to worse for the Terrapins (4-1, 0-1)

WHEN IS THIS Drexel season ever going to end? Barring some March transformation, the answer is the CAA Tournament in Richmond. The good news is that the 3-20 Old Dominion team that blew out the Dragons in their own gym Thursday night is not eligible to play in the tournament. Neither is Georgia State and its fabulous freshman, R.J. Hunter (64 points in his last two games). They are both off to Conference USA next season to play football, so they are not allowed to play in the tournament.

There was no need for a half-court heave on Saturday. Drexel's defense made certain it wouldn't come to that again. The Dragons gave their best defensive performance of the season in a 68-57 win over Georgia State at the Daskalakis Center. Drexel's latest victory isn't likely to make any national highlight reels - as did their previous win, a 55-52 defeat of Hofstra on Frantz Massenat's 50-foot buzzer-beater. But for a team trying to overcome a poor start by grinding out conference wins, it may end up being more important because of how it was accomplished.

* Temple gets some CBS run Sunday afternoon at Kansas. The Owls were great against the Syracuse zone 2 weeks ago on ESPN, but KU will challenge them on defense as Duke did. Kansas is top 10 in offensive (1.16 points per possession) and defensive (.85 PPP) efficiency. * After his perfect game at Drexel on New Year's Eve (6-for-6 from the field, 2-for-2 from the arc, 5-for-5 from the foul line), St. Joe's C.J. Aiken's line from the last two games is: 41 points, 17 rebounds, 10 blocks, 12-for-15 overall, 4-for-4 from three and 13-for-14 from the foul line.

ATLANTA - The turbulence the first 2 months of the season for Drexel was left behind in a poised and efficient 6-minute stretch to start the second half Wednesday night at Georgia State. The Dragons, who came into their first Colonial Athletic Association game of the season with a 4-8 record, played like a team not worried about straightening itself out. Drexel made six of its first eight shots after intermission, a four-point halftime lead grew to 10 points, and the Dragons rolled to a 77-60 victory.

IS ANOTHER team really ready to challenge Duke and North Carolina's dominance atop the Atlantic Coast Conference? Which controversial announcer is ESPN wisely protecting? And who is Josh Thompson and why is he dunking over his parents? It doesn't matter who the next president is, the annual 50 things to know about college basketball is what this country really needs. 1 Steven Adams, a center for Pittsburgh, is the Big East's preseason freshman of the year. The 7-footer out of New Zealand is a mystery to many of the league's insiders.
