SPIELBERG, Austria -- Nico Rosberg set the fastest time in the opening practice session for the Austrian Grand Prix, smashing the circuit lap record for the Red Bull Ring in the process.Rosbergs time of 1:07.373 beat Michael Schumachers best time from the first qualifying session in 2003 by over half a second and was more than a second quicker than last years pole position time. The combination of fresh ultra-soft tyres and the Red Bull Rings recently laid surface undoubtedly contributed to the quick time, but the Mercedes once again looks like the package to beat, with Rosberg holding a 0.649s over Sebastian Vettel in the fastest Ferrari.Lewis Hamilton was second fastest, 0.357 off Rosberg, but had his first lap on his set of ultra-soft tyres ruined by traffic. He eventually set his time on 10-lap old tyres, suggesting he still has plenty of margin to improve given a fresh set. Vettel was exactly 0.2s quicker than Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in fourth, with Daniel Ricciardo fifth fastest, 1.155s off the pace of Rosberg.Although the Red Bull Ring only has nine corners, it proved to be a tricky challenge for several drivers during the 90-minute session. Max Verstappen twice damaged his car against the new kerbs at the exit of Turn 5 and exit of Turn 8. The bright yellow kerbs sit beyond the normal red and white kerbs and are there to act as a deterrent for drivers attempting to steal a tenth or two by either running wide at Turn 5 and 8 or cutting the apex at Turn 7.But the 18-year-old Verstappen was unperturbed by the warning and in the first half of the session lost a front wing endplate as he clouted the yellow kerbs on the exit of Turn 8. During a lull in the session he used his team radio to register a very public complaint, saying: I think those yellow kerbs on the high-speed corners are really dangerous.When he rejoined the track for a quick lap on super-soft tyres he hit the kerbs on the exit of Turn 5, again shedding a front wing endplate before damaging his front right suspension as he rejoined at speed over the second section of kerbing on the outside of the corner. From that point on he was just a passenger and ended up beached in the gravel trap beyond Turn 6. The mistake meant he did not set a quick lap on the ultra-soft tyres, leaving him eighth overall, behind Carlos Sainz and Felipe Massa and ahead of Daniil Kvyat and Valtteri Bottas who rounded out the top ten. Williams opted not to use the ultra-softs during the session, meaning Toro Rossos position in the timesheets may well drop when all the cars are on track on equal rubber.Vertsappen wasnt the only driver to make mistakes. Twenty five minutes into the session Hamilton spun on the exit of Turn 3, briefly entering the gravel before ending up on the edge of the circuit. Romain Grosjean was following him into the corner and had to swerve to miss him, leaving his Haas pointing towards the barrier. He managed to recover to the track without damage and went on to finish the session 11th fastest.Rosberg took a trip through the gravel at Turn 3 with 30 minutes remaining before Daniel Ricciardo crossed the gravel on the exit of Turn 6 towards the end of the session. Both drivers were able to rejoin with no major damage.Two incidents will be investigated by the stewards after the session. Marcus Ericsson strayed over the pit lane entrance line just as Ricciardo passed him around the outside at Turn 8, forcing the Red Bull to run wide. Onboard footage showed Ericsson lost the rear of his Sauber in the corner, pushing him wide just at the wrong moment. Pascal Wehrlein is also under investigation for failing to stay above minimum lap time under a Virtual Safety Car period, which was deployed to clear Verstappens stricken Red Bull.

Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). Oklahoma will learn quickly whether it has what it takes to return to the College Football Playoff.The Sooners made a surprising run to win the Big 12 title last season before losing to Clemson in the national semifinals. Now, with much of the key talent returning from that 11-2 squad, Oklahoma is poised to finish the job.The Sooners will be tested immediately when they open with Houston at Reliant Stadium on Sept. 3. Two weeks later, they will host Ohio State in one of the seasons biggest games.Theres two of the teams in the top 12-13 in the country, and deservedly so, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said of Houston and Ohio State. Excellent football teams.In conference play, the Sooners will play at TCU on Oct. 1, then will play Texas in Dallas the following week. If the Sooners can get past the second weekend of October unscathed, theyll be in position to have some margin for error if they fall later in the season.Our season, the front part of it is very loaded up, quarterback Baker Mayfield said. We have been preparing to be ready for the season at the very beginning. We cant have any rust to knock off. We have to go in ready to play, and thats how were treating camp right now.Here are some things to watch for this season.HEISMAN HYPE: Mayfield, one of the nations most exciting and innovative players, finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy balloting last season after passing for 3,700 yards and 36 touchdowns.He is still striving for improvement.My work ethic has been the same, if not even harder, he said. Ive been pushing myself and I need those guys to see that, because if they were to see me taking a day off or just saying, `Oh, Ive got it figured out, that wouldnt be good for the program. So Ive been working hard and thats how I expect the other guys tto do it, too.ddddddddddddREPLACING STRIKER: Eric Striker was one of Oklahomas all-time leaders in sacks from the outside linebacker slot, but hes now in the NFL. Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, a 6-foot-2, 245-pound redshirt junior, is in line to fill the void.He is getting his opportunity, defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said. Hes played in certain situations the last two years. Hes very fast and explosive. Great rusher.RECEIVING THREATS: Sterling Shepard, one of the schools top three all-time receivers in most categories, has gone to the NFL.Dede Westbrook, last years No. 2 receiver, had 46 catches for 743 yards last season. Mark Andrews, an All-Big 12 selection last season, had 19 grabs, but seven touchdowns. They are the most likely players to receive an uptick in targets. Geno Lewis, a transfer from Penn State, should be a factor.JOE MIXON: The explosive running back burst onto the scene last season with 1,119 all-purpose yards last season. He was one of the conferences top all-around threats, and now that Shepard is gone, hell be expected to do more as a playmaker. Bob Stoops said Mixon could have a bigger role in the passing game.LINCOLN RILEY: The 32-year-old offensive coordinator was given a huge raise in the offseason for helping to make the Sooners one of the nations most productive and balanced offenses. Oklahoma struggled out of the gate last season as the team got used to his version of the Air Raid.
