    SINGAPORE (AP) — Lewis Hamilton took the lead in the Formula One drivers' championship by winning the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday, leapfrogging teammate Nico Rosberg who had to retire early with a mechanical failure. Hamilton led comfortably but was forced into a late pit-stop, briefly giving up the race lead to Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, before he passed the German seven laps from the finish to win by 13.5 seconds at the Marina Bay circuit. The Briton won his seventh race of the season, and second in a row, to move to 241 points, ahead of Rosberg on 238 with five races left. Rosberg was forced to start from pit-lane due to a failure on the installation lap, and he did 14 laps at the back of the field in the stri

  • Chances of drivers hitting deer in Oklahoma may be down this fall

    By Robert Medley, Staff Writer | Published: Sun, Sep 21, 2014

    Due to drought in 2011 and 2012, the deer population is down, wildlife experts say. This summer and during the 2013 summer, there was plenty of rain and good conditions for deer reproduction in central Okahoma.

  • OU football: First-half observations from OU-West Virginia

    ryan aber | Updated: 14 hr ago

    MORGANTOWN, W.Va.—Oklahoma and West Virginia are tied at 24 at the half here at Milan Puskar Stadium. Here are a few quick thoughts, things to watch moving forward and stats from the first half. THREE THINGS THAT STOOD OUT -Samaje Perine is a beast and Alex Ross can flat out sprint. Without Keith Ford, we knew those two would need to make plays and they've delivered, though OU inexplicably went away for Perine for a big chunk of the half before going back to him with success late. Then when it seemed like West Virginia would go into the half with the momentum, the Sooners seize it back with a 100-yard kick return by Ross for a touchdown. That's three plays of 80 yards or more for Ross already this season.

  • OU football: First-quarter observations from OU-West Virginia

    Erik Horne | Updated: 15 hr ago

    West Virginia led 7-3 after the first quarter. OU's only points came on a Michael Hunnicutt 42-yard field goal. Some quick observations: - Had Trevor Knight hit Sterling Shepard in stride on the Sooners' first drive, Shepard might still be running. Shepard had acres of space to run in the slot, but Knight threw behind him on third-and-five, missing on a chance to get out ahead 7-0 early. Knight (5-for-12, 60 yards) did show off good arm strength, particularly outside of the pocket, and his receivers had some drops. - Hello, Samaje Perine. His first touch went for 15 yards and the true freshman saw a bulk of the carries in the first quarter -- six for 31 yards -- three times as many as sophomore Alex Ross.
