Spurrier says RB Davis iffy

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Coach Steve Spurrier says 1,000-yard rusher Mike Davis hasn't practiced this week and might not be ready when his ninth-ranked Gamecocks open against No. 21 Texas A&M on Thursday. Davis has been slowed by several injuries during camp, most recently a rib injury suffered Saturday.

Kent State: Players will honor late center Jason Bitsko by wearing his No. 54 on their helmets. The 21-year-old was found unresponsive in his off-campus apartment Wednesday morning.

Pitt: Chad Voytik will be the starting quarterback for the opener Aug. 30 against Delaware. The sophomore played in three games last fall, including the entire second half in a 30-27 victory over Bowling Green in the Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl.

Vanderbilt: Coach Derek Mason named sophomore Patton Robinette the starting quarterback. The 6-foot-4 Robinette, the only quarterback with any starting experience, beat out redshirt freshman Johnny McCrary and LSU transfer Stephen Rivers, younger brother of Philip of the San Diego Chargers.

NCAA: The NCAA has notified the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals it intends to appeal a judge's ruling in the Ed O'Bannon case that it violated antitrust laws. U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled Aug. 8 the NCAA broke the law by restricting schools from providing money beyond current scholarship limits to athletes.

Women's basketball: Center Mercedes Russell is expected to miss the 2014-15 season to give her time to recover from a history of foot problems. Tennessee coach Holly Warlick said last month Russell had offseason surgery on her right foot. The 6-6 sophomore from Springfield, Ore., averaged 6.3 points and five rebounds and had a team-high 40 blocks as a freshman while helping the Vols go 29-6 and reach a region semifinal.
