FINE IN FRANCE

Londonderry’s Stefanie Murphy, a 2011 Boston College grad, is off to a fine start for her Union Hainaut pro hoop team in France.

Through eight games this year, Murphy is averaging team-highs in points (11.5) and rebounds (8.5).

Murphy has played pro ball in Poland and Hungary as well as a short stint with the Connecticut Sun of the WNBA.

MAKING HISTORY

Framingham State makes its first ever appearance in the NCAA Division 3 football tourney as the Rams head to SUNY Cortland for a noon kickoff Saturday.

Leading the way is starting cornerback Ony Ramos of Lawrence, who has a pair of interceptions on the year.

North Reading pass-rush specialist Dino Rizzo also plays linebacker, while Haverhill’s Conor Tufts and Lawrence’s Darius Timmons pitch in on defense and special teams.

STILL THE ONE

Rob Oppenheim of Andover followed up Tuesday’s dynamite 63 with a rock-solid 68 to hold his lead at the midpoint of Stage II of the PGA Qualifying School.

Oppenheim holds a two-shot lead in the 74-player field.

At 130 or 12-under par on the Plantation Reserve and Golf Club, Oppenheim hopes to continue the sharp play for 36 more holes.

The top 19 players, plus ties, advance to the final stage of Q School.

BC football to play Ohio State

It won’t be for another eight seasons, but Boston College has agreed to play a home-and-home series with Ohio State in 2020 and 2021.

Our guess is BC will somewhat have its house back in order by then.

Here are some other recent agreements among college programs:

Arkansas and Michigan have agreed to a home-and-home series in 2018 and 2019.

BYU and Virginia will play a home and home series in 2013 and 2014. BYU will also play Michigan in 2015.

Ohio State added San Diego State to its home schedule next year in 2013
