No. 1 Florida State Seminoles down No. 22 Florida 1-0 win women's soccer

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Le'Veon Bell ran for a career-high 210 yards and two touchdowns, including the winner with 8:12 left, in No. 13 Michigan State's 17-13 victory over No. 24 Boise State on Friday.

The Spartans turned the ball over four times and trailed 13-10 before Bell scored from 5 yards. Bell started the drive with a 7-yard run and later caught a pass for 11. He also blocked a pass rusher to allow Andrew Maxwell to find Dion Sims for 18 yards to the Boise State 7-yard line. Two plays later, the Spartans led.

The Broncos drove to the Michigan State 42, but Joe Southwick's pass on fourth and 2 was broken up. Bell and the Spartans then ran off the final 6:32.

Boise State entered 60-6 in Chris Petersen's five seasons as coach. This was the Broncos' first game since losing quarterback Kellen Moore and running back Doug Martin from last season's explosive offense. Their only touchdown came on Jeremy Ioane's 43-yard interception return in the second quarter, and they were outgained 461-206.

Tennessee 35, N.C. State 21: Cordarrelle Patterson scored on a 41-yard catch and a 67-yard run during the first quarter for the Vols in Atlanta. Patterson beat David Amerson, who led the nation with 13 interceptions in 2011, to make it 6-0. Then one play after a safety put the Vols up 15-7, Patterson ran 67 yards, running left, then crossing the field.

Temple 41, Villanova 10: Matt Brown ran for 141 yards for the host Owls in their return to the Big East. Temple was booted from the Big East in 2004 for poor play and poor attendance but invited back to rebuild the dwindling league. Brown's 56-yard run made it 28-10 over the I-AA Wildcats late in the first half.

Fla. Atlantic 7, Wagner 3: Down 3-0 entering the fourth, Graham Wilbert threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Byron Hankerson with 11:36 left to lift the host Owls over the I-AA Seahawks in Carl Pelini's coaching debut.

Wolverines sit two

No. 8 Michigan suspended starting running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and reserve defensive end Frank Clark for tonight's opener against No. 2 Alabama. Toussaint, who ran for 1,000-plus yards and nine touchdowns last season as a sophomore, pleaded guilty to drunken driving Tuesday. Clark, a sophomore who had an interception in January's Sugar Bowl win over Virginia Tech, is accused of taking a laptop from a dorm room. His next court date is scheduled for Sept. 11.

North Carolina: The NCAA has reviewed irregularities in an academic department and told the school it found no rules violations, the school said. In May, North Carolina found fraud and poor oversight in 54 classes in the Department of African and Afro-American Studies from 2007-11. Athletes made up 58 percent of the enrollments in the classes, with football players making up more than a third. There is no evidence of preferential treatment for athletes or grades issued without written work, the school said.

Men's basketball: Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie was hospitalized for an undisclosed issue on day the school said it is scrutinizing his leadership. The school said team members met with athletic director Kirby Hocutt but declined to say what was discussed. Former players told CBS-Sports.com Gillispie often broke NCAA rules with his practice lengths. The NCAA permits practices of no more than four hours per day and 20 per week. Last season, Gillispie's first, the Red Raiders went 8-23, 1-17 in the Big 12.

soccer: Kristin Grubka scored in the 10th minute to give host Florida State (3-0), No. 1 in the coaches poll, a 1-0 win over No. 22 Florida. The Gators (1-2-1) had a goal disallowed early in the second half because of offside.
