SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Coach Brian Kelly isn't interested in talking with his players about a history lesson as Notre Dame tries to avoid one of the school's worst finishes in 128 seasons of playing football.

"We don't spend time talking about worst or bad or all-time negative, things of that nature. We are who we are. We're 2-5. We know where we are. So that's not really going to be a solution to us," Kelly said. "If I've got to get them motivated to be successful by using, `You guys don't want to be one of the all-time losingest football teams,' then we recruited the wrong guys.

"These guys have got a ton of pride. I don't have to hit them in the nose with a newspaper and remind them of that. So we don't talk about that. We talk about how do we get a win," he said.


Clemson RB Gallman cleared to play

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says Wayne Gallman practiced with the team Monday and will play against No. 12 Florida State on Saturday night.

Gallman was knocked out of the third-ranked Tigers (7-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) game versus North Carolina State on Oct. 15 after a hard hit that appeared to be helmet-to-helmet contact. No penalty was called on the play but the running back believes it was a "dirty" hit and wanted teammates to retaliate during the game. He went through the concussion protocol during Clemson's bye week.


Tide S Jackson has leg fracture repaired

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama safety Eddie Jackson had surgery to repair a fractured left leg.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Tuesday that the operation "went really, really well." Saban says Jackson shouldn't have any problems in the future and had overcome a similar but unrelated injury early in his career with No. 1 Alabama.


Harbaugh still stewing over 'worst call'

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Jim Harbaugh is still mad about a call that went against Michigan during a blowout win of Illinois over the weekend.

Harbaugh challenged the spot of a 7-yard pass on a third-and-9 from the Illinois 41 with 2:04 left in a game the second-ranked Wolverines were winning 41-8. After it wasn't overturned by video review, Harbaugh brought up the decision following his postgame news conference on Saturday.


Stanford QB Chryst to make first start

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Stanford junior Keller Chryst will make his first collegiate start at quarterback at Arizona on Saturday, coach David Shaw said Tuesday.

He'll replace senior Ryan Burns, who went 4-3 (2-3 Pac-12) in his seven starts. Burns completed nearly 63 percent of his passes for 1,058 yards and five touchdowns. He's also thrown seven interceptions.


NCAA: UNC's arguments ‘without merit’

The NCAA says North Carolina's argument that the governing body lacks jurisdiction in the school's ongoing multi-year academic case is "without merit."

In a Sept. 19 filing released by the school Tuesday, the NCAA enforcement staff pushed back against the school's procedural arguments in response to five serious charges by saying all the arguments lacked merit. UNC had argued that its accreditation agency - which put the school on a year of probation that expired over the summer - was the proper authority to handle such a matter instead of college sports' governing body.


Bowlsby refutes Iowa St. AD's comments

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby bristled at the suggestion that without Oklahoma and Texas the league is akin to the Mountain West.

Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard made that assertion during a radio interview last week, shortly after the Big 12 decided against expansion . Pollard also said the only difference between Iowa State and schools that wanted into the 10-member league is that the Cyclones are already in.


Wisconsin LB Cichy out for season

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Linebacker Jack Cichy, the leading tackler for No. 11 Wisconsin, will miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.

UCLA QB Rosen dealing with nerve issue

LOS ANGELES (AP) UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen is dealing with a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder, which has kept the sophomore out of the team's last two games.

Bruins coach Jim Mora offered details on Rosen's injury for the first time Monday, having previously referred to it only as an upper-body injury after Rosen landed hard on his throwing shoulder in the fourth quarter of a 23-20 loss at Arizona State.


Georgia LBs cleared, will face Florida

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Georgia's two leading tacklers will be able to play against No. 14 Florida after being cleared in a marijuana investigation.
