Local Sports Review
Undated – COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Oklahoma committed three costly turnovers in last night's 36-27 loss to No. 18 Missouri. Two of the turnovers led to 10 points and the other squelched a drive deep in Missouri territory, and the third-ranked Sooners (6-1, 2-1 Big 12) also missed a chip-shot field goal.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) The 14th-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers knocked No. 17 Oklahoma State from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 51-41 win yesterday. Oklahoma State's Kendall Hunter ran for 201 yards, but Nebraska (6-1, 2-1 Big 12) forced the Cowboys (6-1, 2-1) to go three-and-out on three of their four drives in the second half while pulling ahead.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma State has suspended forward Matt Pilgrim from its practices leading up to the basketball season. Coach Travis Ford doesn't have a timetable for when the senior forward might return.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Cliff Lee gets to pitch in an even bigger game for the AL champion Texas Rangers with the New York Yankees out of the way. The ace left-hander didn't have to beat the defending champions again to put Texas in its first World Series, so the Rangers' prized midseason acquisition is set to start Game 1 on the biggest stage Wednesday night.
