Head Coach Likes Progress of WT Football Team
For the most part, West Texas A&M head football coach Hunter Hughes liked what he saw from his team in Saturday’s scrimmage at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium.
Several newcomers shined in the outing, including Mississippi State transfer Quarterback Mitch Hood, who threw two long touchdown passes.
The Buffaloes will have one more scrimmage this Saturday morning at Kimbrough before opening the season on September 1st at Asuza Pacific.

- Brandt Snedeker saw off a challenge from Taiwan's C.T. Pan to claim a three-stroke win at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday. Snedeker had a target on his back after opening with a 59, only the 10th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history.
He followed up with scores of 67, 68 and 65 to finish at 21-under-par 259, while Pan (66) and Webb Simpson (62) tied for second on 18-under.
- Justin Verlander pitched just well enough to earn his 200th career win and the Houston Astros hit five home runs, beating the Oakland Athletics 9-4 to avoid a sweep and retake sole possession of the AL West lead. The surging A's had won the first two games at the Coliseum to tie Houston atop the division. But Yuli Gurriel hit a three-run homer in the third inning and Evan Gattis, Alex Bergman, Marwin Gonzalez and Martin Maldonado later homered for the defending World Series champions.
- Rougned Odor connected on a go-ahead, three-run homer with rain falling in the seventh inning, and the Texas Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 to wrap up a soggy weekend. Odor's 15th home run of the season came minutes before the second rain delay of a game that started 13 hours after the previous night's game ended.

- Two people with knowledge of the diagnosis say Dallas Cowboys right guard Zack Martin has no structural damage in his hyperextended left knee and should be ready for the opener. Martin was injured in the second quarter of the Cowboys' 21-13 preseason loss to Cincinnati. An MRI on Sunday confirmed the Cowboys' belief that the injury wasn't serious.
