  • Status of Buckeyes' Ross unclear, to dress Saturday

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Tailback Lydell Ross is back with Ohio State but it is unclear whether he will play Saturday against Penn State.

    Coach Jim Tressel cleared Ross to practice with the scout team this week and dress for the game.

    A complaint filed last week accused Ross of passing phony money coupons at a local strip club. He was suspended for last week's game against Indiana.

    "We're kind of sitting still, if you will, because there have been no charges," Tressel said Tuesday.

    Tressel declined to say whether Ross would play against Penn State. Freshman Tony Pittman replaced him at tailback and rushed for 144 yards and a touchdown in a 30-7 win over Indiana.

    Hurricane postpones Illinois State-Florida Atlantic

    NORMAL, Ill. -- Hurricane Jeanne forced the postponement of Saturday's football game between Illinois State and Florida Atlantic.

    A makeup date was not announced Friday.

    The hurricane is expected to reach Florida's east coast by Sunday. Florida Atlantic is in Fort Lauderdale.

    "Florida Atlantic is in the process of closing its university today, while the governor has asked for evacuation in the Fort Lauderdale area," Illinois State senior athletic director Larry Lyons said. "With these prominent actions taking place, it didn't make a whole lot of sense for us to try to fly in there and play on Saturday."

    The next game for Illinois State is Oct. 2 against Indiana State.

    Concussion could knock Penn State's Mills out of game

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State starting quarterback Zack Mills may miss Saturday's game against Ohio State because of the lingering effects of a concussion.

    Mills' concussion was revealed Tuesday, three days after Penn State's 6-4 loss to Iowa.

    Coach Joe Paterno didn't blame the injury for the team's woeful performance on offense against the Hawkeyes. The Nittany Lions managed their lowest offensive output in three years, including the fewest number of first downs in Paterno's 39-year tenure.

    The concussion apparently occurred in the first half, but Mills remained in the game until the third quarter.

    LOGAN, Utah -- Utah State's season opener Saturday against Nicholls State was canceled Tuesday because Hurricane Katrina has made it too difficult for the players at the Thibodaux, La., school to get back to campus and prepare for the game.

    Thibodaux is about 60 miles southwest of New Orleans.

    The game will not be rescheduled.

    "First and foremost our prayers are with the families and victims of the hurricane," Utah State athletic director Randy Spetman said. "We need to do all we can to support them."

    The Aggies will open the season at Utah on Sept. 10.

    "We are disappointed to not be playing this Saturday," Spetman said. "There is a lot of excitement in the community and we would have liked to have had a great game. We will focus on Utah and then open the home season against UNLV on Sept. 24."

    The last time a Utah State football game was canceled was Oct. 2, 1970, when the Wichita State team was flying to Logan for a game and one of the planes crashed in Colorado.

    CBS SportsLine.com wire reports




    EAST LANSING, Mich. -- An assault charge against Michigan State running back Jason Teague has been dismissed.

    Teague, a senior, will undergo anger management and other counseling, according to 54B District Court in East Lansing. He also will write the alleged victim a letter of apology.

    Teague had been charged with misdemeanor assault and battery stemming from an October incident involving a woman. He pleaded not guilty in July and the case was dismissed this week.

    Teague, who pleaded not guilty to the charge in July, remained with the Michigan State football team while the case was pending and is still with the team.

    Teague gained 688 yards and scored eight touchdowns on 150 carries last season. He caught 28 passes for 219 yards and two TDs.

    UNLV's Dodd-Masters suspended for punching Wyoming player

    SportsLine.com wire reports

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- UNLV cornerback Ruschard Dodd-Masters was suspended for one game by the Mountain West Conference for throwing a punch at a Wyoming player.

    MWC commissioner Craig Thompson called the hit a "potentially dangerous nonfootball act that clearly fell under the definition of 'physical abuse.'"

    Wyoming wide receiver Josh Barge was hit in the throat. He missed several plays but returned to the game.

    Dodd-Masters will miss Saturday's game when UNLV (2-7, 1-4) plays at Colorado State (3-6, 2-3).

    The hit came near the end of a play in the third quarter of Wyoming's 53-45 triple-overtime road victory last Saturday. UNLV was assessed a 15-yard penalty.
