Golson gets QB start for Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Everett Golson is Notre Dame's starting quarterback again.

The senior has reclaimed the job he held while leading the Fighting Irish to the national title game two years ago and before being suspended last season for academic impropriety.

"He's put himself in that position to get that opportunity to be our starter against Rice," Kelly said. "There was competition, and there will be competition. Everett's the starter for Rice, and we hope he's the starter for the entire year. But we're all in this merit-based situation. We've got to win."

Player comes out: Arizona State offensive lineman Edward Sarafin has become the first active Division I football player to announce he's gay. A fifth-year senior, Sarafin told Phoenix-based Compete, a magazine for gay sports, that he began telling teammates of his sexual orientation last spring. "It was really personal to me, and it benefited my peace of mind greatly," he said in the August issue. The 6-6 320-pound walk-on hasn't played in an actual game according to the school's athletic department.

New Mexico: The school has reinstated running back Crusoe Gongbay and cornerback SaQwan Edwards, who were suspended after being arrested in April on rape and kidnapping charges. The Bernalillo County District Attorney's Office chose to drop the case against the two players and Ryan Ruff, a former student who wasn't on the team.

N'western: Running back Venric Mark, who missed most of last season with a broken ankle and was recently suspended for the first two games, will transfer, and receiver Christian Jones will miss the season with a knee injury. As a junior in 2012, Mark ran for 1,366 yards and had 15 TDs. He's fourth all-time at the school with 4,271 all-purpose yards. Jones was the leading receiver last season with 54 catches for 668 yards and four touchdowns.

  1. Rays blow lead in ninth, lose in 10 to Rangers (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.

He had two hits Wednesday in Oakland and three hits Friday against the Rangers. Okay, one was an infield hit that bounced high in front of the plate, but the other was a long home run to …

  5. History shows Ole Miss upheaval tough to overcome


    After Mississippi football coach Hugh Freeze resigned Thursday, with the opener six weeks away, offensive line coach Matt Luke is being thrown into an interim head coaching position. He will try to save a season that already had been scarred by a self-imposed bowl ban for NCAA violations.

    After coach Jim Tressel resigned, Ohio State went 6-7, including a loss to Florida in the Gator Bowl, in 2011.
