CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Denzel Perryman and Anthony Chickillo have seen a little of everything during their time at Miami, but one thing they have not experienced: A trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Miami's senior leaders say this team is mature and experienced enough to finally make 2014 the breakthrough season.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Tony Romo and Ryan Tannehill both say they're ready for the start of the regular season. When Romo and the Dallas Cowboys visit Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins tomorrow night, plenty of eyes will predictably be on the quarterbacks.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Thunder have hired Florida assistant Mark Daigneault to coach their D-League team. Daigneault spent the past four years working under Billy Donovan as assistant to the head coach. Last season, the Gators became the first SEC team to go 18-0 in conference play.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators are hosting a rookie tournament Sept. 13-16 that will feature prospects from their own franchise as well as the Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins organizations. The event will take place at the new Ford Ice Center in conjunction with that facility's grand opening.
