RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Kansas starts the 2018-19 season as the No. 1-ranked team in The Associated Press Top 25 preseason poll. The Jayhawks earned 37 of 65 first-place votes in results released Monday. Kentucky checks in at No. 2, followed by Gonzaga, Duke and Virginia to round out the top 5.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - An investigator who helped uncover the sexual exploitation of 400 boys by an Iowa basketball coach says victims can still come forward to share their information. Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation agent Ryan Kedley says state and federal investigators have attempted to contact all 400 known victims of former Iowa Barnstormers Coach Greg Stephen, which he called a massive undertaking. But he says some individuals who were victimized haven't been identified or contacted.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Chiefs have not only survived what is probably their toughest stretch this season, they have downright thrived. Their blowout win over Cincinnati on Sunday night left them at 6-1 and in firm control of the AFC West, not to mention the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. And with an easier nine-game stretch ahead, there is a good chance they hold onto it.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Getting that first win of the season left Nebraska hungry for more. The Cornhuskers aren't complaining about playing again this week instead of having the open date that originally was on the schedule. Bethune-Cookman of the Football Championship Subdivision will play at Nebraska on Saturday. The Huskers were supposed to play Akron in the opener, but the game was canceled because of inclement weather.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU receiver and standout returner KaVontae Turpin has been suspended from the team after an alleged physical altercation with his girlfriend and his arrest on an assault charge. Coach Gary Patterson says Turpin probably won't play Saturday at Kansas. Turpin's arrest came after TCU's home loss to Oklahoma in which he had a 99-yard kickoff return for his school-record sixth career special teams touchdown.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Like clockwork, Oklahoma has developed yet another star freshman running back. Kennedy Brooks is the latest off the assembly line. He ran for 168 yards and a touchdown last Saturday. For the season, Brooks has rushed for 360 yards and four touchdowns. He likely will carry more of the load heading into No. 8 Oklahoma's home game against Kansas State on Saturday.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU coach Gary Patterson says sophomore quarterback Shawn Robinson will have surgery and Michael Collins will be the starter. Patterson did not discuss details, but the decision comes more than three weeks after Robinson took a hit on his non-throwing left shoulder in a 17-14 win over Iowa State. Robinson played the next game, but Collins replaced him after three series against Oklahoma. TCU plays at Kansas on Saturday.
