     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - University of North Dakota football coach Bubba Schweigert has named sophomore Joe Mollberg starting quarterback to begin the season.  Mollberg will be behind center when UND takes on San Jose State in its season opener on Aug. 28.
 
     Schweigert cited Mollberg's knowledge of the offense and his performance in fall camp.  Mollberg started seven games as a redshirt freshman in 2013 and battled for the starting position with classmate Ryan Bartels.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Adrian Peterson missed Minnesota Vikings practice for the second straight day, but the team does expect the star running back to make the trip to Kansas City this weekend.
 
     Peterson missed practice yesterday and today for what the team called personal reasons. He has not played in the first two preseason games and coach Mike Zimmer hinted earlier that he didn't really see a need to play him much at all for the entire exhibition season.  The Vikings have been giving more work to Peterson's backup, Matt Asiata.
 
     Linebacker Chad Greenway did return to practice today after sitting out on Wednesday to rest a sore wrist.
 
     The Vikings play their third pre-season game on Saturday at Kansas City.

     It's the first league MVP award for Moore in her four-year career. She averaged a career-best 23.9 points and set a WNBA record by scoring at least 30 points 12 times, including in four straight games. The scoring mark was the third-highest average in league history, trailing only Phoenix's Diana Taurasi's 25.3 points in 2006 and 24.1 in 2008.
 
     Moore received 35 of the 38 first place votes, followed by Taurasi and Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry. Los Angeles' Candace Parker was fourth and Phoenix's Brittney Griner finished fifth.

     Phil Hughes (14-8) struck out eight over seven innings to forge a four-way tie for the American League lead in victories, with Rick Porcello, Max Scherzer and Scott Kazmir.  
 
     Trevor Plouffe put the Twins back in front with a two-run double in the sixth.
 
     Rookie Zach Walters homered for the third straight game for the Indians, who missed out on their first sweep of a road series this season and fell six games behind Kansas City in the AL Central.

(AP) - David Price allowed only one hit in his first start against his former team, an RBI triple to Brandon Guyer, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 1-0 today to avoid a three-game sweep.  Ben Zobrist reached on a throwing error by shortstop Eugenio Suarez scored on Guyer's hit. Price then retired his final 23 batters, nine on strikeouts, to finish an eight-inning complete game.
