Today's Thought

The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It's enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren't worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon.

    FARGO, ND - Defending national champion and No. 1-ranked North Dakota State faces Butler at 3 p.m. Saturday at Target Field in Minneapolis presented by Pioneer. Saturday will be the first Division I game and second football game played at Target Field. St. John's and St. Thomas drew a Division III-record crowd of 37,555 fans on Sept. 23, 2017. With more than 32,000 tickets sold and a capacity of 38,544, this week's game will be either the ninth or 10th largest crowd in Bison football history.

     NFL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Suspended Browns running back Kareem Hunt won't be permitted inside the team's facility while serving his eight-game ban for physical altercations. The team had asked the NFL to allow Hunt to be around teammates, arguing he could use the extra support.

     League spokesman Brian McCarthy said Hunt, who signed with Cleveland in March after being released by Kansas City in December, can't be at the facility starting at 4 p.m. on Saturday. That's when teams are required to submit 53-man rosters.

     Hunt was suspended for two off-field incidents, one in which he shoved and kicked a woman. He's eligible to return to the team in November.

     Browns receiver Antonio Callaway can be in the building during his four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, but he can't practice.

     In other NFL news:

     - San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon has had another setback in his return from a knee injury. General manager John Lynch told flagship radio station KNBR on Wednesday that McKinnon's return to practice the previous day was "not encouraging." Lynch says McKinnon's recovery regressed for the third time this summer as he has tried to get back on the field. McKinnon tore his right ACL a week before the start of last season. He had a flare-up right before the start of training camp and began on the physically unable to perform list. McKinnon was activated on Aug. 6 and went through two light practices before another setback sidelined him for three weeks. McKinnon returned again Tuesday but had another setback.

     - The Buffalo Bills have signed kicker Stephen Hauschka (HOWSH'-kuh) to a two-year contract extension. Hauschka was entering the final season of the three-year contract he signed in free agency in 2017. And the new deal signed Wednesday extends his contract through the 2021. The 34-year-old has 11 seasons of NFL experience and has converted 86.4 percent of his field goal attempts, which currently places him seventh on the NFL list. He hit 17 consecutive field goals last season to mark the team's best stretch since Rian Lindell made 18 straight in 2007.

     - The Jets and Colts have agreed to a trade that sends Indianapolis cornerback Nate Hairston to New York for a sixth-round pick in next year's NFL draft. The deal Wednesday is pending a physical. Hairston was a fifth-rounder out of Temple in 2017 and played in 27 games with the Colts, including 11 starts. He has one career interception and two sacks. Hairston dealt with various injuries during his first two NFL seasons.

     NHL-HURRICANES-WARD RETIREMENT

     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Goalie Goalie Cam Ward has signed a one-day contract with the Carolina Hurricanes and is retiring as a member of the team he helped lead to a Stanley Cup.

     General manager Don Waddell announced the signing and retirement Wednesday, calling Ward "a cornerstone for this organization for more than a decade."

     The 35-year-old Ward won the Conn Smythe Trophy as MVP of the 2006 playoffs and holds numerous club records for goalies, including 318 victories, 668 regular-season games played, a .557 winning percentage and 27 shutouts. After becoming a fixture in goal for Carolina from 2005-18, he spent his final NHL season with the Chicago Blackhawks.

     Ward called it "an honor and a privilege to wear the Hurricanes jersey for 13 years."

     TENNIS-US OPEN

     NEW YORK (AP) - Serena Williams' matchup against 17-year-old American Caty McNally heads a lineup of second-round contests that similarly pit established champions against hungry upstarts.

     The eighth-seeded Williams is a 23-time Grand Slam singles champ. McNally is ranked No. 121 and got her first victory in a Grand Slam event after receiving a wild card to play singles and doubles with fellow teenage star Coco Gauff.

     Defending men's champ and top seed Novak Djokovic is in the leadoff night match in Ashe, taking on 56th-ranked Juan Ignacio Londero after third-seeded Roger Federer plays 99th-ranked Damir Dzumhur.

     Other key matches on Wednesday include Venus Williams against No. 5 Elina Svitolina, and No. 2 Ash Barty facing 73rd-ranked American Lauren Davis.

     In early action Wednesday:

     - Third-seeded Karolina Pliskova easily dispatched her second-round opponent in a little over an hour. Pliskova rolled over qualifier Mariam Bolkvadze 6-1, 6-4, and has yet to drop a set.

     - Seventh-seeded Kei Nishikori (kay nih-shih-KOHR'-ee) appeared to struggle at times but held on to defeat American Bradley Klahn 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.

     - No. 12 Borna Coric pulled out with a lower back strain, giving a second-round walkover to Grigor Dimitrov and adding to the growing list of men's seeds gone from the tournament. Coric's departure means half of the top 12 men's seeds are out, including No. 4 Dominic Thiem, No. 8 Stefanos Tsitsipas, No. 9 Karen Khachanov and No. 10 Roberto Bautista Agut, who were all upset Tuesday.

     WOMEN'S HOCKEY TOUR

     UNDATED (AP) - Kendall Coyne Schofield and a majority of the world's top female hockey players are set to hit the ice in their ongoing push to establish a single, economically viable North American professional league.

     The newly formed Professional Women's Hockey Players' Association announced Wednesday it will hold a series of tournaments starting in Toronto on Sept. 20-22. Two more events are also scheduled for Hudson, New Hampshire, on Oct. 4-6 and Chicago on Oct. 18-20.

     The union also announced its members will play exhibition games against Boston College on Sept. 21 and against the Sharks alumni in San Jose on Sept. 22.

     The union is made up of players who have pledged not to compete professionally in North America this season in a bid to form a league that pays them a livable wage and provides health care.
