The Francis Bacon triptych that recently sold for a record-breaking amount at auction will go on public display at the Portland Art Museum in Oregon starting Saturday. But the identity of the buyer who shelled out $142.4 million for the work remains a mystery. "Three Studies of Lucian Freud," created in 1969, was sold as part of a Christie's auction in New York in November. The $142.4 million paid for the piece represents a record amount for a work of art sold at auction, breaking the previous record held by Edvard Munch's "The Scream" of $119.9 million in 2012.

Remember when you were a kid, and would throw things at your siblings or friends, and your mom would say, "Stop throwing things at people before you lose the right to play in a bowl game?" Well, Oregon tight end Pharaoh Brown must not have been listening. Brown was suspended from playing in the Alamo Bowl for his role in a snowball fight that turned ugly, the school announced Monday. Oregon plays Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30. Brown was among a group of nearly 100 students hitting cars and drivers with snowballs on campus Friday.

The Dallas-Fort Worth region is shivering this weekend with below-freezing temperatures that have shut down roads, canceled flights and halted much of city life. The temperature in the area Saturday afternoon was 25 degrees, and it was expected to get colder. Saturday's high temperature will probably be the lowest high on record for a Dec. 7 in the metroplex -- well below the previous record from 1950 of 33 degrees, Dennis Cain, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Fort Worth, told The Times.

In Oregon, a state envied for its high tech, sign-ups under the new federal healthcare law have been anything but. About 400 newly hired workers in Salem are processing paper applications by the thousands for health insurance under President Obama's law. They review each 19-page application, calculate eligibility for tax subsidies, and then mail back a packet of each consumer's options - which the customers must mail back to complete the sign-up process....

One of the most remarkable streaks in college football ended Saturday in Tucson when Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota had a pass intercepted for the first time this season. Mariota had thrown a Pac-12 Conference record 353 passes without an interception before his perfect pass to Bralon Addison was picked off by Arizona's Scooby Wright in the first quarter. It took a sideline circus play to end the streak as the ball bounced off Addison's chest and was deflected by Shaquille Richardson to Wright.

Maybe the last season of the Bowl Championship Series was supposed to end this way. There are four undefeated contenders left, three weekends to play and only two spots for the Jan. 6 title game at the Rose Bowl. One-loss Stanford, which muddled up the standings last week with its No. 4 ranking ahead of undefeated Baylor, lost a second game to clear out the top four spots. Alabama struggled to a 20-7 victory over Mississippi State on Saturday but remained affixed on top in Sunday's latest BCS standings with an average of .991.
