COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (AP) - Galen Rupp cruised to a title in the 3,000 meters, and his Oregon Ducks did the same in the team race at the NCAA indoor track and field championships Saturday night.

Rupp won in 7 minutes, 48.94 seconds, more than 5 seconds ahead of the field. The Ducks won their first indoor team title with 54 points to 36 for second-place Florida.

The Tennessee women won their second team title since 2005 with 42 points to 37 for host Texas A&M.; The Aggies won the meet-ending 4x400 relay to make it close.

Sarah Bowman led Tennessee by winning the mile in 4:29.72.
