    FARGO, N.D. - Longtime in-state football rivals North Dakota State and North Dakota will meet for the first time as Division I opponents next season.  NDSU completed its 2015 schedule by adding a Sept. 19 game with UND to be played at Gate City Bank Field in Fargo.  The two-game contract calls for UND to return to Fargo on Sept. 7, 2019.
 
    The most recent two-game proposal was outlined by former NDSU athletic director Gene Taylor and current UND athletic director Brian Faison.  "Gene worked hard to find a solution that would be agreeable to both schools," said NDSU interim athletic director Prakash Mathew.  "I am happy that Gene's offer has come to fruition."
 
    The teams have not met since 2003 in Grand Forks as members of NCAA Division II and the North Central Conference.
 
    NDSU began Division I football in 2004 as a founding member of the Great West Football Conference before moving in 2008 to the Missouri Valley Football Conference.  UND began in 2008 as a member of the Great West and joined the Big Sky Conference in 2012.
 
    UND has a 62-45-3 advantage in the all-time series with NDSU dating back to 1894, including a 35-30 edge since the Nickel Trophy was inaugurated in 1938.  The trophy is a 75-pound replica of a previously minted U.S. coin that measures in 2 inches thick and 22 inches in diameter.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The longtime director of women's athletics at North Dakota State University is retiring next year.  Lynn Dorn plans to step down at the end of March, after a 37-year career at NDSU. She says she's "forever grateful for the opportunities provided to me."
 
     During Dorn's tenure, NDSU women's teams have won seven national titles and 98 conference or league championships. She also helped lead the school's athletics program from NCAA Division II to Division I.  Dorn says she looks forward to spending more time with family during her retirement.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eduardo Escobar got a career-high five hits, including a homer and a triple, and the Minnesota Twins batted around twice in a 20-6 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.  The 20 runs are the most in a major league game this season.
 
     Danny Santana had a homer and four RBIs and Oswaldo Arcia and Trevor Plouffe also homered for the Twins, who scored six runs in the second inning and nine in the sixth to drop the Tigers to 2 1/2 games behind Kansas City in the AL Central race.
 
     Robbie Ray (1-4) lasted just 1 1/3 innings, giving up six runs and six hits. Ian Kinsler led off the game with a homer for Detroit, but the team with the vaunted starting pitching staff was reduced to using infielder Andrew Romine on the mound in the eighth inning. Arcia and Plouffe homered off Romine.

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Aaron Rodgers threw for two touchdowns and Eddie Lacy ran for a first-quarter score in the Green Bay Packers' 31-21 preseason victory Friday night over the Oakland Raiders.
 
     The game was stopped for several minutes in the second quarter after Raiders linebacker Sio Moore was taken off the field with a neck injury. He gave a thumb-up sign as he was wheeled off to a standing ovation. Moore was taken to a hospital.
 
     The Packers' Julius Peppers recorded his first sack of the preseason, and the Raiders' offense struggled with new quarterback Matt Schaub. He did lead the Raiders into the red zone in the third quarter against backups, but a touchdown pass to former Packers receiver James Jones was overturned on review.  Schaub was 13 of 27 for 110 yards. Rodgers was 9 of 20 for 139 yards playing into the second quarter.

     SEATTLE (AP) - Russell Wilson threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score, helping the Seattle Seahawks rout the Chicago Bears 34-6 on Friday night.  Already with a defense expected to be among the best in the NFL again, Wilson and the Seahawks can only hope the offensive efficiency of the past two weeks continues into the regular season.
 
     Seattle scored touchdowns on its first four possessions, and Steven Hauschka hit a 59-yard field goal - what would be a franchise record in the regular season - on the final play of the first half. It was the ninth straight possession Seattle had scored with Wilson on the field.
 
     Jay Cutler played the first half for Chicago and was 12 of 20 for 157 yards and an interception.

     UNDATED (AP) - The San Francisco Giants emphatically have ended the Washington Nationals' 10-game winning streak, 10-3. Rookie Joe Panik went 4-for-5 and hit his first major league home run, a three-run shot. Buster Posey added his 15th of the season.
 
     Tim Hudson evened his record at 9-9. He has beaten the Washington franchise 18 times. Hudson outpitched Doug Fister, who fell to 12-4.  The Giants have won five of their last six.  Nationals manager Matt Williams called the game "kind of a clunker all around."
 
     The Nationals' 10-game streak tied for the longest since the team moved from Montreal in 2005. During the streak, Washington had seven one-run victories, five come-from-behind wins and five walk-offs. Only Washington and Kansas City have managed 10-game win streaks this year.
 
     In other MLB action:
 
     - Oakland downed the L.A. Angels 5-3, moving within one game of the AL West leaders. That ends the Angels four-game win streak. Athletics ace Sonny Gray went eight and a-third innings to improve to 13-7. Mike Trout hit his 28th homer for the Angels.
 
     - Austin Jackson's bases-loaded double with two outs in the ninth inning keyed a five-run rally, and the Seattle Mariners sent the Boston Red Sox to their sixth straight loss, 5-3. The Mariners had managed only two hits through the first eight innings, but came alive in the ninth. Seattle ended a nine-game losing streak at Fenway Park.
 
     - The Philadelphia Phillies nipped St. Louis 5-4 as Cards pitcher Adam Wainwright's August struggles continued. Wainwright failed in his bid to become the majors' first 16-game winning, giving up five runs in six innings, dropping to 15-8 overall and 2-3 this month.
 
     - Justin Upton's two-run homer in the 12th inning gave Atlanta a 3-1 win over Cincinnati. That's his 25th homer. Braves starter Mike Minor didn't allow a hit until Billy Hamilton's two-out single in the eighth. The Reds managed just two hits -- both by Hamilton -- in 12 innings.
 
     - Billy Butler and Josh Willingham homered in Kansas City's 6-3 win at Texas. Rookie right-hander Yordano Ventura struck out six in six innings for his 10th win.
 
     - The L.A. Dodgers beat the New York Mets 6-2. Dan Haren held the Mets to three hits over seven innings to win his 11th game.
 
     - Giancarlo Stanton had three hits and drove in three runs in Miami's 13-4 win over Colorado. Marcell Ozuna hit a grand slam for his third homer in as many games.
 
     - Arizona downed San Diego 5-1. Josh Collmenter came two outs away from a complete game, holding the San Diego Padres without an earned run on four hits over 8 1-3 innings.
 
     - Pittsburgh knocked off Milwaukee 8-3. Josh Harrison homered and drove in a career-high five runs. Andrew McCutchen also went deep.
 
     - Tampa Bay blanked Toronto 8-0. Drew Smyly pitched a two-hitter and retired the final 19 batters for the first complete game of his career.
 
     - The New York Yankees scored in the bottom of the ninth on Martin Prado's RBI single to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4. Rookie Jose Abreu hit his 33rd homer for the White Sox.
 
     Jon Singleton's homer capped a four-run ninth inning and the Houston Astros took advantage of Cleveland's sloppy defense to defeat the Indians 5-1. The Tribe had beaten the Astros six straight times.
 
     - Jake Arrietta shut down his former team on four hits over seven innings in the Cubs 4-1 win over Baltimore.  Javier Baez and Luis Valbuena homered for the Cubs, who snapped the Orioles four-game winning streak.  Nelson Cruz belted his major league-leading 34th homer of the season for the AL East-leading Orioles.

     UNDATED (AP) - - Los Angeles Angels pitcher Garrett Richards underwent surgery to repair the torn patellar tendon in his left knee. Timetable for his recovery is six to nine months. He was 13-4 when he tore up his knee covering first base on Wednesday night.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will soon have season-ending surgery on his injured right knee, according to multiple reports. Machado is hitting .278 with 12 homers and 32 RBIs in 82 games. He sprained his right knee while taking a swing against the Yankees on Aug. 11.

     BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Kevin Harvick will start from the pole position tonight at Bristol Motor Speedway.  Harvick turned a lap at a track-record 131.362 mph at the high-banked Bristol oval. He knocked Jeff Gordon from the top spot for his 11th career pole. It is his fifth pole this season, which he attributes to one thing: "faster cars."  Gordon, the points leader, will start outside the front row, with Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch in the second row.
 
     Once again Tony Stewart is sitting out this week's race. This is the third straight Cup race he's skipped after he struck and killed dirt track racer Kevin Ward Jr.
 
     With three regular-season races left, Gordon leads Earnhardt by three points.
