Washington, Gonzaga To Renew Series In 2016-17

After a decade-long layoff, Washington and Gonzaga will renew their basketball series beginning with the 2016-17 season. The schools announced the renewal of the matchup Monday. The date and location of the first game is yet to be determined, but the contract is a four-year deal with two games on the home court of each school in alternating years. Washington coach Lorenzo Romar says the renewal of the matchup is good for the state. The schools last played in 2006 and there had been difficulties with previous attempts to renew the matchup. The schools met every season between December 1997 and December 2006 before the rivalry went on hiatus. The schools were unable to start the contract any sooner because of non-conference commitments already made for the next two seasons. SEATTLE (AP) – August 4, 2014

Petersen Ready For 1st Fall Camp At Washington

Chris Petersen can't wait to see quarterback Cyler Miles take his first snaps in fall camp, even if Miles will be a spectator when Washington opens its season Aug. 30 at Hawaii. Petersen spoke Sunday about the start of his first fall camp at Washington after spending the previous eight seasons as the head coach at Boise State. Miles situation has drawn the most attention since Petersen's arrival. Miles was the presumptive replacement for Keith Price, who finished his career as one of the top passers in Washington history.

Browns Claim OL Bowie Off Waivers From Seahawks

The Cleveland Browns have claimed injured offensive lineman Michael Bowie off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks. Bowie was a seventh-round pick a year ago and made eight starts during his first NFL season. But he needs shoulder surgery that will sideline him for four to six months, and he was cut by the Seahawks on Saturday. The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Bowie helped clear the way for Marshawn Lynch to run for 1,257 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He also started a playoff game in Seattle's run to the Super Bowl title. Cleveland general manager Ray Farmer announced the waiver claim on Sunday. It brings the Browns' roster to 90 players. The Seahawks claimed tackle Cory Brandon off waivers from Arizona to fill Bowie's spot on their roster. BEREA, Ohio (AP) – August 4, 2014
