AUSTIN, Texas — Kody Clemens had just launched another massive postseason home run when he stared hard into the opposing dugout and flashed the “Hook ’em Horns” hand sign. It was the sort of bravado that has come to define the Clemens name at Texas and in baseball in general. And like his father Roger did more than 30 years ago, Kody Clemens has led the Longhorns back to the College World Series with outsized confidence and the talent in a big bat to back it up.

FRISCO, Texas — The deal making Zack Martin of the Dallas Cowboys the highest-paid guard in the NFL is finally done. The Cowboys and Martin agreed to terms on an $84 million, six-year contract extension that should keep the two-time All-Pro in Dallas through at least 2024, a person with direct knowledge of the deal said Wednesday. The contract includes $40 million guaranteed money, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced. By Pro Football Writer Schuyler Dixon.

— FBN--COWBOYS-CHEERLEADER LAWSUIT — A former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader has filed a federal lawsuit against the team, alleging she wasn’t paid for all her work and made less money than the team’s male mascot. SENT: 160 words.
HOUSTON — During the Texans’ nine-week offseason program, Deshaun Watson had a set of goals in mind. The second-year quarterback out of Clemson, who is recovering from tearing his right ACL during practice last season, said he met and surpassed them by the end of the team’s final veteran minicamp on Wednesday.

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State University’s interim president criticized lawyers who represent Larry Nassar’s assault victims and suggested that the first woman to go public with her accusations was probably getting a “kickback” from her attorney, according to emails. John Engler’s remarks were made to another university official in April, a month before Michigan State agreed to a $500 million settlement with hundreds of women and girls who said they were sexually assaulted by Nassar, a campus sports doctor now serving decades in prison. Some members of the Olympic team said they were molested while training in Texas. The Chronicle of Higher Education and Detroit Free Press reported on the emails. SENT: 350 words, photos.
