The fifth-ranked Sooners were off Saturday. Messages left with team officials and Norman police for comment weren't immediately returned. Sutherland, from Keller, Texas, hit two field goals last Saturday as the Sooners beat UCLA 48-14.

GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) - A man who narrowly avoided the death penalty for the shooting death of an Oklahoma sheriff's deputy has been formally sentenced to life in prison without parole.

But District Attorney Laura Thomas said one of the 12 jurors in the case refused to agree to a death sentence.

UPPER SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - A Methodist Episcopal Church missionary society is returning 3 acres held in trust for the Wyandotte Nation since members were forced from their homes in 1843. The Blade reports the property that includes a stone church and cemetery is in northern Ohio's Upper Sandusky. A document formalizing the trust agreement said the Wyandotte people wanted the missionary society to protect the church and cemetery "where we have buried friends" from desecration.
