AUSTIN, Texas -- In meetings, in practice and when he was just thinking to himself, Charlie Strong pleaded with his team not to be a one-game wonder after a big season-opening win.That turned out to not be a problem at all.Freshman quarterback Shane Buechele passed for 244 yards and four touchdowns and No. 11 Texas backed up its first national ranking since 2013 with a 41-7 victory over UTEP on Saturday night.I was nervous, said Strong, who entered the season under tremendous pressure after two losing seasons. Everyone was telling them how good they are and I wondered how would they respond? I kept telling them, `Just focus. We havent done anything yet.Sophomore linebacker Malik Jefferson said the message came through. But Jefferson suggested the players didnt really need the reminder because they knew how to handle the week after beating Notre Dame.We were 5-7 last year, Jefferson said. We cant be satisfied with anything.Buechele wasnt there for the previous two years of losing, but there was no letup from the freshman as he put together another splendid game with his arm and feet. He was 22 of 27 passing and his 34 yards rushing in the zone read option showed the Longhorns (2-0) have even another wrinkle in their new offense.Buechele threw touchdown passes of 29 and 7 yards to Jerrod Heard, who started at quarterback most of 2015 but moved to wide receiver this season. He also connected with Dorian Leonard for a 46-yard score in the third quarter that made it 34-7.I felt good out there, Buechele said. We started slow but I feel like we finished strong ... I like throwing the ball to all these guys.Aaron Jones ran for 123 yards and a 51-yard touchdown for UTEP (1-1).THE TAKEAWAYUTEP: The Miners missed the passing of injured starting quarterback Zack Greenlee, who was held out to rest a strained knee before the start of the Conference USA schedule. Kavika Johnson was 9 of 15 for 42 yards, and Jones gave the Miners their only punch on offense. The Longhorns knew Jones was the primary option on nearly every UTEP possession until the score got out of hand.Were not making excuses for anything. They whipped us handily, Kugler said.Texas: Buechele continues to impress. His second start came behind an offensive line that was missing two starters with injuries. Buechele was sacked three times and withstood several more hits, but his first two touchdown passes were precision throws into coverage on the sideline in the end zone. His third was a deep throw that hit Leonard in stride.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Longhorns should stand pat. They easily handled a team they were supposed to and Buechele proved hes no fluke. No one in front of Texas lost so theres no real room to move up unless AP voters punish No. 9 Georgia for its close win over Nicholls. Staying where they are they are would still be another big step for a program that has been on the skids the last two years.HEARDS BIRTHDAY BREAKOUTHeards first two career touchdown passes came on his 21st birthday. Hed been letting everyone know his big day was coming up by announcing it for days on Twitter. He finished with six catches for 46 yards.It says hes a ball player, said Texas running back Chris Warren III. Hes an athlete who can play.Strong praised Heards quick adjustment to catching passes instead of throwing them. Last season, it was Heard who everyone thought was the quarterback of the future when he broke Vince Youngs single-game school record for total offense.Hes always vibrant, always has a smile on his face. That first touchdown was a good catch, Strong said.UP NEXTUTEP: The Miners host Army next Saturday in their last game before starting Conference USA play.Texas: The Longhorns get their first road test next Saturday at California, which beat Texas 45-44 last season when the Longhorns missed an extra point in the final seconds.LAST WORDHes very talented, Kugler said about Buechele. Probably Texas fans are really excited of having him for four years. Cheap Nigeria Jerseys . Sulaiman, 44, was chosen unanimously Tuesday in a vote by the leadership, the World Boxing Council said.

Traditional contenders Brazil, Greece and Turkey drew the other three spots to complete the 24-team field for this summers tournament in Spain, basketball governing body FIBA announced Saturday at its meeting in Barcelona. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Rafael Nadal was something to behold during his third-round singles match on a windswept Thursday at Olympic Centre Court.True, he flashed plenty of raggedness. No surprise there, given that injuries and self-doubt have recently stunted his play.But mixed amid a stream of unforced errors in a 7-6 (5), 6-4 win against Frances Gilles Simon were enough vibrant glimpses of vintage Nadal to widen the eyes. There were stirring side-to-side dashes. There were buzz-saw forehands that looked sure to sail three feet long only to crash down, suddenly and violently, straight into play.Same as always, the 30-year-old Spaniards intensity filled the stadium. He looked like he would chew off an arm if it meant giving himself a better chance to win. It was no surprise then, when, after the match, he said in his brief comments that he would fight to the death for a medal.Nadal, of course, is as tough a competitor as weve ever seen in any sport. He didnt need to play here. He already has a singles gold medal, from Beijing in 2008. A wrist injury caused him to miss the 2016 Wimbledon after he pulled out of his beloved French Open. And yet here he is, on the brink of a performance that would significantly gild his legend. Two more golds are a possibility in Rio. He followed the Simon match by winning in the semifinals of doubles with partner Marc Lopez. (Nadal then pulled out of the first round of mixed doubles with Garbine Muguruza.)?But if Nadal at the 2016 Rio Games underscores his dogged competitiveness, it is also a potent reminder of something missing. Or, rather, someone: Roger Federer.Martina had Chris. McEnroe had Borg. Agassi had Sampras. Since they first played in 2003, Nadal has always had Federer. Both, no doubt, have lost a step. Other rivalries have begun. But no matchups have defined mens tennis in its current form like the tense battles waged when the two greats faced off in their best days. At Wimbledon in 2008, they played five scintillating sets that finished with the dusky All England Club reveling in, arguably, the greatest match in tennis history.Ah, what fun these two could have had, playing in front of the electric crowds in Rio.Only Federer is nowhere to be seen. As far back as 2012, he was saying hed play at least long enough to take the court in Brazil. Then 2016 came, and with it a knee surgery and a balky back and birthday No.dddddddddddd 35. After losing gamely in the Wimbledon semifinals last month, Federer shut down his entire 2016 season to heal up. The closest he came to Rio was a lonely tweet -- Wish I was there with you -- typed from some undisclosed location during the Games opening ceremonies.Sadly, opportunities like this -- the Spaniard and the Swiss duking it out with the whole world watching -- might not come again. There was a period when Nadal and Federer, despite never playing each other in the Olympics, averaged four or five matchups every year. (Nadal owns a commanding 23-11 head-to-head record, in good part because prime Federer was often good enough to make it to the finals of the clay tournaments where Nadal reigned.)But they have played less and less with the passing of each season. There was just one match in 2014, a Nadal victory at the Australian Open. Then a single match in 2015, Federer winning in Basil. 2016 will end without them playing at all. Ugh.If Federer were here, they could have been closing in on a Rio showdown. Given the way their careers have been trending, and paying a nod to the strength-sapping march of time, it just might have been their last great match.Still, there is what might have been, and there is the plain reality of the moment. Upsets and the Federer no-show have turned the tennis star power in Rio down a notch, but well-known players such as Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro remain, and theyll be challenged in the closing days by the likes of Americans Madison Keys and Steve Johnson, who both advanced in singles Thursday.The Olympic tournament is proving to be memorable, full of great play and stands brimming with rhythmic chants, stomping feet and flag-waving national pride. That kind of atmosphere was on full display Thursday afternoon, when Andy Murray beat back stubborn 40th-ranked Italian Fabio Fognini, digging out of the 3-0 third-set hole by winning the last six games.Both have a few matches to go, but Murray and Nadal are now favored to meet in the final. That would be the 2008 gold medal holder against the 2012 champion, a wonderful and attractive match, perhaps as good as any that will be played this year.But it wouldnt be Federer versus Nadal.
