Some of the sports stories covered by The Associated Press on Friday. A full Digest will be sent at about 3 p.m. All times EST:

EUGENE, Ore. - Top-ranked Oregon must get past No. 14 Stanford at home on Saturday to keep its hopes alive of again playing for the national championship.

WACO, Texas - Collin Klein and Kansas State are two wins away from almost certainly playing for the school's first national title. The second-ranked Wildcats (10-0) are headed to Texas for the second Saturday night in a row. This time they play Baylor (4-5).

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The Memphis Grizzlies and the New York Knicks, both riding six-game winning streaks, meet. The Grizzlies already have knocked off the Heat and Thunder by double digits this week, while the Knicks won at San Antonio on Thursday night.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is expected back at team headquarters a day after undergoing a minor procedure for an irregular heartbeat.

HONOLULU - Brittney Griner leads top-ranked Baylor against fourth-ranked Stanford in a rematch of last year's NCAA semifinal.

NAPLES, Fla. - Suzann Pettersen, with two wins in her last three starts, was tied for the lead going into the second round of the Titleholders. Stacy Lewis was four shots behind and needing to win to have any chance at the money title.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. - Jay Cutler's availability remains in doubt for the Chicago Bears because of a concussion as they prepare to meet the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. If he can't play, Jason Campbell is expected to start.
