FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The committee searching for North Dakota State University's next athletic director has chosen seven candidates for consideration.
 
     The committee expects to narrow the pool before inviting candidates for on-campus interviews.
 
     Gene Taylor announced in June that he was leaving NDSU to take the No. 2 position in athletics at Iowa, with hopes of someday landing the top job at a Bowl Championship Subdivision school. NDSU competes in the lower-tier Football Championship Subdivision.
 
     The current pool of candidates to replace Taylor are: NDSU senior associate athletic director Troy Goergen, Colorado State senior associate athletic director David Crum, former Northern Iowa athletic director Rick Hartzell, Stony Brook senior associate athletic director Matthew Larsen, Idaho associate athletic director Tim Mooney, Idaho State athletic director Jeff Tingey and St. Bonaventure athletic director Stephen Watson.

     The Orioles look to increase their lead in the American League East tonight with another home game against the Yankees.
 
     The Dodgers and Braves continue their series in Atlanta tonight. The Dodgers now lead the second-place Giants in the National League West by five games. By losing, the Braves fell four games back of NL East leader Washington.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission says it's time to repeal NFL television blackout rules.
 
     Ajit Pai says the FCC needs to "be on the side of sports fans" regarding league rules that prevent games that are not sold out from being broadcast in the home team's market.
 
     Pai is one of five FCC commissioners, and was in Buffalo on Tuesday to make the announcement alongside congressman Brian Higgins, who has urged the FCC to change the rules. The FCC has spent the past year seeking public input regarding blackout regulations.
 
     NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said there is no reason to change the blackout policy put in place in 1975. Goodell says repeal could affect future TV contracts and lead to fewer games broadcast for free.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Steve Ballmer is officially the new owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.
 
     The team says the sale closed Tuesday after a California court confirmed the authority of Shelly Sterling, on behalf of the Sterling Family Trust, to sell the franchise. Her husband, Donald Sterling, had unsuccessfully fought the sale of the team he owned since 1981 in court.
 
     The NBA Board of Governors had previously approved the sale.
 
     Ballmer says he will be "hardcore" in giving the team, coach Doc Rivers, the staff and players the support they need.
 
     Rivers calls it "an amazing new day in Clippers history," and says he's inspired by Ballmer's passion for the game.
 
     Ballmer, Rivers and Clippers players will attend a new fan festival announced for next Monday at Staples Center.
