NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Dillon Gabriel won’t let a higher profile or fancy new surroundings change his low-key approach.

Yes, the Buccaneers are moving on from Brown, whose NFL career is on hold yet again after another in a series of incidents, including two women accusing him of sexual assault in 2019.
Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams said Monday he is entering his name in the transfer portal so he can speak with other schools.

This time, it’s more about old-school, hard-nosed defense.
