Sports briefs: Gators' Bor honored

In the first big meet of the men’s cross country season, Batbileg Bor set the bar pretty high for himself. The San Francisco State senior finished second in a personal-best 26 minutes, 9.5 seconds at the USF Invitational. It earned the International Studies Academy grad the California Collegiate Athletic Association Runner of the Week award.

QB decision kept quiet

Never one to shy away from secrecy, the Raiders are playing their quarterback decision for all it is worth. While all signs point to Daunte Culpepper starting Sunday against the Detroit Lions, coach Lane Kiffin is refusing to say whether it will be Culpepper or Josh McCown under center for the season opener. “It’s simply a matter of always trying to gain a competitive advantage,” said Kiffin, who told the quarterbacks of his decision Tuesday, butis keeping the starter’s name quiet. “He’s not being secretive with us,” wide receiver Jerry Porter said. “He’s just not telling you. It’s a different situation. In the past, you guys have known who the starter is from Day 1, no competition, no anything.” ESPN.com, citing an unidentified source, said McCown would start.
