The Draft

POWERED BY

Two more days until the NFL season kicks off. That’s 48 hours to finish “Hard Knocks” before the Cowboys head to Tampa Bay.

Making Headlines

College football: In the first AP Top 25 poll of the season, Clemson fell to No. 6 — the Tigers’ first time out of the Top 4 since 2017; Oklahoma dropped to No. 4, while Georgia and Ohio State improved to Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

NFL: The Texans officially named Tyrod Taylor as starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Jaguars. Rookie Davis Mills will serve as backup, while Deshaun Watson isn’t expected to be active. Taylor signed a one-year, $12.5 million deal with Houston in March.

Hockey: The NWHL will be renamed the Premier Hockey Federation beginning this season.
