CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Demoted Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant missed his second straight practice since freshman Trevor Lawrence was picked to start for the No. 3 Tigers on Saturday against Syracuse.

Bryant was given Monday's workout off by Dabo Swinney after what the coach said was an "emotional" talk with his senior quarterback.

SEC fines UK $100K for fans on field

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) The Southeastern Conference has fined Kentucky $100,000 for violating its policy on access to the competition area following the Wildcats football upset victory over Mississippi State.

The school was fined for a second offense, its first since a 2014 football game against South Carolina. Fans gathered in the south end zone of Kroger Field after Saturday's 28-7 win over the then-No. 14 Bulldogs and celebrated with players. Kentucky improved to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in the SEC with the win and is ranked No. 17 in the Associated Press Top 25.


Suspended Tar Heels to return vs. Miami

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina is nearly back at full strength for its game at No. 16 Miami with the return of several players who were suspended for selling team-issued shoes.

Seven players - including quarterback Chazz Surratt and receiver Beau Corrales - are eligible to make their season debut Thursday against the Hurricanes. And after being down as many as 11 players in the opener against California, UNC will be down just one - starting defensive end Tomon Fox - for the shoe issue this week.


Stanford's O-line needs to help RB Love

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Bryce Love has yet to match last year's record-setting season and Stanford football coach David Shaw said lack of consistent play by the offensive line has been a major contributor.

Hit by injuries, the offensive line has yet to start the same five guys in back-to-back games, and Shaw thinks that's just part of it.


South Carolina poised for matchup vs. UK

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina center Donnell Stanley is eager to correct the mistakes the Gamecocks have made in big games this season.

No. 23 Miss. St. humbled by loss to UK

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Mississippi State suddenly has a lot bigger problems than former coach Dan Mullen coming to town.

The 23rd-ranked Bulldogs and their fan base have been looking forward to Saturday's game against Florida for several months, ever since Mullen left Starkville after nine seasons to become the Gators' head coach. But instead of going into the weekend undefeated Mississippi State is smarting after a 28-7 road loss to Kentucky .


SDSU RB Washington to miss 4-6 weeks

SAN DIEGO (AP) San Diego State says junior running back Juwan Washington has a broken collarbone and is expected to be out for six weeks.

Washington was hurt in Saturday night's home overtime victory against Eastern Michigan. The Aztecs (3-1) are off Saturday before opening Mountain West Conference play at Boise State on Oct. 6.


Spartans seek answers for uneven offense

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State scored 35 points last weekend, which is normally a good sign for an offense.

This time, that figure came with a caveat.


Ole Miss seeks improvement vs. No. 5 LSU

Mississippi gets its second shot in three weekends to beat a team that's ranked among the nation's top five programs.

The Rebels hope this one goes better than the first one.


Kansas, K-State trying to find footing

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) The prevailing thought surrounding Kansas last week was that the Jayhawks had finally turned the corner, and a lopsided win over a fellow Power Five school in Rutgers was proof coach David Beaty was making progress in his vast rebuilding job.

Just down Interstate 70, there was hope heading into the Big 12 schedule that Kansas State was on track after a win over UTSA following an embarrassing loss to Mississippi State.
