Big 12 ruling in December?

Iowa State's Steven Leath, one of 10 presidents from the Big 12 schools who will cast a vote regarding expansion, predicted that fans will "see a different Big 12 in the somewhat near future," but he cautioned that final decisions might not occur until December.

USF is one of many schools who have made an appeal to the conference.

Leath made the comments to the Iowa State Daily, the student newspaper.

Leath acknowledged he is "getting more input from individuals on BYU than any other school." In an Aug. 8 letter to Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, co-signers from 25 LGBT advocacy groups urged the league to drop consideration of BYU because of its policies whereby students can be suspended or expelled for engaging in a same-sex relationship.

Ray Lewis' son charged: A grand jury in South Carolina indicted former Coastal Carolina defensive back Ray Anthony Lewis III, son of former NFL star Ray Lewis, on a charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, allegedly involving an 18-year-old woman incapacitated because of drugs or alcohol.

Playoff committee: Former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, 71, is leaving the College Football Playoff selection committee for health reasons.

Baylor: Sophomore wide receiver Ish Zamora was cited after a video surfaced of him beating his dog with a belt this summer, police said. Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton says Zamora was cited for molesting an animal July 5 after the beating during house-training. Acting coach Jim Grobe told the Waco Tribune-Herald that Zamora is "going to be disciplined by a bunch of people."

Oklahoma State: Receiver Tyron Johnson, a former five-star recruit, tweeted that he will transfer from LSU.
