FOOTBALL:

NFL:

FBN--COWBOYS-DEFENSE FIRST

FRISCO, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys are winning with defense, an unusual development for a franchise with mostly offensive stars in recent years. DeMarcus Lawrence has been expecting it all along. By Pro Football Writer Schuyler Dixon. UPCOMING: 600 words, photos.

COLLEGE:

FBC--BIG 12-YOUNG STARS

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Sure, Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury is gushing about quarterback Alan Bowman’s fast start. What surprises him most is the freshman’s ability so far to limit his mistakes. Bowman threw for 605 yards and five touchdowns last week in a 63-49 win over Houston, giving the pass-happy Big 12 a peek at its future following the departures of stars such as Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma and Mason Rudolph at Oklahoma State. Bowman is among a crop of young stars emerging in the league. He has eight TD tosses and has yet to throw an interception. By John Raby. SENT: 760 words, with photos.

FBC--SEC THIS WEEK

GAME OF THE WEEK: No. 22 Texas A&M at No. 1 Alabama. Top-ranked Alabama is a 27-point favorite in Tuscaloosa, but there’s legitimate reason to believe this game could be competitive. Texas A&M played a very good game against then-No. 2 Clemson on Sept. 8 before losing 28-26 in College Station. That game served notice that new coach Jimbo Fisher could have the Aggies among the top SEC teams sooner rather than later. SENT: 530 words, with photos.
