AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Peyton Barber's biggest battle these days is for a spot in Auburn's tailback rotation. The redshirt freshman has already been dealing with a learning disability. Barber said Tuesday he was diagnosed with ADHD in high school and dyslexia a few months ago. Now, Barber is in the mix with Cameron Artis-Payne and Corey Grant as the Tigers seek a replacement for Heisman Trophy finalist Tre Mason.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The game between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies has been postponed by inclement weather. No makeup date has yet been announced for Tuesday's matchup between NL East rivals.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Shaun Phillips has seen a lot of change in his 10 years in the NFL. The linebacker believes that Tennessee's switch to a hybrid 3-4 defensive scheme helps the Titans keep up with the rest of the league. Phillips said Tuesday only four or five teams played a 3-4 scheme when he came into the NFL.

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - California has hired Tennessee's Cuonzo Martin as its head coach. Cal announced Martin's hiring Tuesday. He replaces Mike Montgomery, who retired last month after six seasons in Berkeley. Martin went 63-41 in three seasons at Tennessee.
