BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU opponents felt like they were playing an NFL defense when they faced the Tigers. Turns out, they weren't wrong: The Tigers had eight defensive players selected during the three-day, seven-round NFL draft. LSU defenders started coming off the board Thursday in the first round when outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo went No. 6 to Cleveland; safety Eric Reid also went in the first round, No. 18 to San Francisco.

AVONDALE, La. (AP) — Lucas Glover increased his lead to two strokes in the Zurich Classic to remain in position for his first victory in two years. The 2009 U.S. Open winner shot a 2-under 70 on Saturday to reach 14 under at TPC Louisiana.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks took their second running back of the draft by selecting Spencer Ware from LSU in the sixth round Saturday. Ware elected to declare for the draft after his junior season.
