Three FSU Seminoles named to All-ACC first team

FSU redshirt junior defensive end Everette Brown, senior kicker Graham Gano and sophomore guard Rodney Hudson were named first-team All-ACC in a vote of the media that covers the league.

Senior cornerback Tony Carter, junior safety Myron Rolle and senior specialist Michael Ray Garvin were second-team choices, while senior tailback Antone Smith and redshirt sophomore center Ryan McMahon were honorable mentions.

The teams heading to Tampa for Saturday's ACC Championship Game were well-represented, too. For Atlantic Division winner Boston College, senior defensive tackle B.J. Raji, junior linebacker Mark Herzlich and senior offensive guard Clif Ramsey were first-team picks, and senior defensive tackle Ron Brace, senior tight end Ryan Purvis and sophomore offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo were second-teamers. For Coastal champ Virginia Tech, senior cornerback Macho Harris was on the first team, while freshman tailback Darren Evans, junior offensive guard Sergio Render, senior defensive end Orion Martin and sophomore defensive end Jason Worilds were second-team selections.

USF: Ready for White

TAMPA — The Bulls defense is focusing on stopping West Virginia quarterback Pat White in Saturday's regular-season finale.

Three years ago, he had touchdown runs of 65 and 76 yards in the second half of a 28-13 win. In two games since, he has been limited to 53 rushing yards, getting knocked out of last year's game late in the first half.

USF freshman quarterback B.J. Daniels has traded his No. 7 jersey for a No. 5 as he simulates White in practice this week.

CINCINNATI: Starting defensive end Lamonte Nelms pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal trespassing and resisting arrest. Police said he refused to leave a restaurant and bar.

CLEMSON: Dabo Swinney, 39, the interim coach since Tommy Bowden resigned Oct. 13, got a five-year contract to become coach. His salary and possible incentives won't be released until the contract is approved by the university's Board of Trustees Compensation Committee. "He took over a very difficult situation and showed me what type of coach and leader he is," said athletic director Terry Don Phillips, whose interviews also included now-Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin and coordinators Bud Foster of Virginia Tech and Brent Venables of Oklahoma.

Texas Tech: Quarterback Graham Harrell had surgery for nine breaks in two fingers of his non-throwing hand, but he won't miss any time.

WYOMING: Missouri offensive coordinator Dave Christensen will become the Cowboys head coach, replacing fired Joe Glenn, Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said.
