    Down 17 in the second half on the road, there was no panic in No. 25 Memphis. The Tigers kept their focus and finished with a victory. Riley Ferguson threw for 471 yards and had a 21-yard TD pass with 1:28 left, Patrick Taylor rushed for a career-high four touchdowns and Memphis rallied to beat Houston 42-38 on Thursday night.

    Jerry Sandusky lost a bid Wednesday for a new trial and a second chance to convince a jury he is innocent of the child sexual abuse charges that landed him in state prison to serve a lengthy sentence. Judge John Foradora denied Sandusky's requests for a new trial or for dismissal of charges. The former Penn State assistant football coach's lawyers said they were disappointed and planned to appeal the decision to Superior Court.


  5. Florida defensive end Jordan Sherit had season-ending hip surgery, the latest setback for coach Jim McElwain's team. Sherit injured his hip in the second half of a home loss to Texas A&M last Saturday and was eventually carted off the field. The Gators (3-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) also expect to be without safety Nick Washington (shoulder) and defensive back Quincy Lenton (knee) when they play third-ranked Georgia (7-0, 4-0) in nearby Jacksonville next week.
  6. A judge has dismissed a fraud suit filed against Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin. Shelby County Circuit Judge Lara Alvis dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning it can't be refiled. Former Alabama receiver Antonio ''A.C.'' Carter had said Kiffin and Florida Atlantic offered him a job to get him to help sign a prospect and then failed to follow through on repeated assurances that the job was his.
  7. With a new athletic director on the way and Nebraska having an open date this week, the future of embattled coach Mike Riley has been the hottest topic in the state and among Cornhusker fans everywhere. Bill Moos, who's coming to Nebraska from Washington State, begins his new job next week. If he's undecided on whether to retain Riley, the last five games of the regular season could be considered an audition for Riley and his staff.

    Clemson has fallen, and Miami is on the rise. Upsets, last-minute victories and injuries have made it a free-for-all race for the Atlantic Coast Conference crown, and there are some unexpected contenders in the mix. No. 7 Clemson, the defending national champion, is still the highest ranked team in the conference, but the Tigers' loss at Syracuse last Friday night put No. 16 North Carolina State in the driver's seat to win the Atlantic Division.


  10. James Franklin's whistle is the last one Penn State players hear at practice, and sometimes the coach will hesitate before he blows plays dead. ''You can take an average defense and be a good defense just by doing that one thing,'' Franklin said. It's helped cue a run in which the No. 2 Nittany Lions have allowed an FBS-low 9 points per game.
