NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Pro Bowl running back DeMarco Murray returned to practice, but his status for Sunday's game against Seattle remains undecided because of a hamstring injury. Murray was listed as questionable after being limited on Friday. He had missed two straight practices with the injury.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Vanderbilt Commodores are ready for their college football showdown with top-ranked Alabama. It's the moment that coach Derek Mason has been working toward since arriving on campus. Vanderbilt was the league's cellar dweller, but the program is heading in another direction. The Commodores are 7-3 over their last 10 games and among the SEC's five remaining undefeated teams.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's challenge this week has been focusing on Massachusetts when everyone around town asks about what went wrong against Florida. The Volunteers host UMass after losing their Southeastern Conference opener 26-20 to Florida in a game decided by a 63-yard touchdown pass as time expired. Winless UMass was competitive in losses to Florida, Mississippi State and South Carolina last season.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies have traded guard Troy Daniels to the Phoenix Suns. Phoenix also receives a second-round pick in next year's draft in exchange for a second-round pick, the Grizzlies announced in a release Friday. The 6-foot-4, 204 pound Daniels averaged 8.2 points and 1.5 rebounds in 67 games with Memphis last season.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's futility against Florida began long before these current Wildcats were born, though that hasn't stopped the annual question about ending the slide against the Gators. The Wildcats have embraced the issue more this year because a bigger reward looms if they break their 30-game losing streak to the No. 20 Gators. Kentucky can grab early control of the SEC's Eastern Division with a victory against Florida.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - No. 19 Louisville is anxious to put its humbling loss to No. 2 Clemson in its rear view mirror when the Cardinals take on Kent State. The Cardinals hope to get back on track against the Golden Flashes - especially on defense after the tough loss in which they yielded 613 yards to the Tigers.
