UTA is taking road trips to Grand Canyon (Nov. 20), Kentucky (Nov. 25), Montana State (Nov. 28), Texas (Dec. 2) and UC Irvine (Dec. 13).

In its second season in the Sun Belt, UTA begins league play on Dec. 30 against new member Georgia Southern.

Fields to SFA

Arlington Martin coach Bob Wager confirmed that former TCU defensive end and Big 12 preseason defensive player of the year Devonte Fields is member of the Stephen F. Austin football team.

Fields, his mother and Wager spent Thursday in meetings at SFA, which ultimately led to leaving Fields on the sidelines of the Lumberjacks practice with his new teammates.

“He is a resident Lumberjack,” Wager said.

Wager said Fields had multiple options on where he could move to from TCU, but was excited at the opportunity SFA afforded him after a roller-coaster 48 hours leading up to his arrival in Nacogdoches.

“We’re excited about the opportunity,” Wager said. “We appreciate Stephen F. Austin giving Devonte a chance to come in and make this team. We appreciate all that TCU has done to help guide and mature Devonte over the last two years as well.”

Baylor adds 7-footer

Baylor received a commitment for 7-foot Joseph Acuil, a junior college standout at Neosho County Community College in Chanute, Kan., who averaged 11.8 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game, according to JucoRecruiting.com.

Acuil is originally from Melbourne, Australia. He is said to have chosen Baylor over schools including Texas A&M, LSU, Oklahoma, Colorado and Iowa State.

OU adds food truck

Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione told ESPN.com that the school the school is in the process of buying a food truck.

“We don’t have facilities in all the places they would need to be, so the idea is to have a mobile fueling station and perhaps some additional trailers that have refrigeration capabilities that can operate as a prep kitchen of sorts,” Castiglione said.

He said the food truck will set up in places that can service the most athletes at a given time.
