NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Justin Tucker hit five field goals and the Baltimore Ravens wrapped up a perfect preseason with a 22-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night. Baltimore found the end zone only once on Tyrod Taylor's 8-yard pass to Deonte Thompson, but that was enough against the Saints.

(AP) - Anthony Davis says he's eager, not to mention proud, to accept the physical risks that go with playing without pay for Team USA. With the FIBA World Cup approaching this weekend, Davis says playing for his country does more than make him a better player.

ATLANTA (AP) - Bo Wallace threw four touchdowns passes in a sloppy season opener, and No. 18 Mississippi pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat Boise State 35-13 Thursday night. Shaking off Wallace's three first-half interceptions, the Rebels got the victory before a sparse crowd in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.

(AP) - Tony Stewart will return to Sprint Cup competition Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway, ending a three-race hiatus after his car struck and killed a fellow driver during a dirt-track race. The three-time NASCAR champion has not raced since Aug. 9, when he hit Kevin Ward Jr. at a sprint car event in upstate New York.
