Jim Harbaugh learned several things from botched-punt loss

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Jim Harbaugh prides himself on preparing his teams for every possible scenario.

Michigan's coach acknowledged Monday he learned "several things," in the aftermath of last year's infamous loss to Michigan State in which a botched punt with 10 seconds left led to one of the most dramatic finishes in college football history.

"Have the punter at the right depth," Harbaugh said when pressed on what he learned from the play. "Not be in a spread punt in that situation."

Saban: Alabama safety Eddie Jackson out for season

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban says star safety Eddie Jackson is out for the season with a fractured leg.

Jackson didn't return to the top-ranked Crimson Tide's 33-14 win Saturday over No. 6 Texas A&M following a fourth-quarter punt return.

Fans chanted "Eddie" as Jackson was taken into the locker room on a cart moments after the Tide scored its final touchdown.
