Nebraska fires athletic director after 5 years

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — For the second time in 10 years, Nebraska has ousted an athletic director during a football season that was failing to meet expectations.

The school's top administrators said the Cornhuskers' embarrassing loss to Northern Illinois last weekend wasn't the sole reason for firing of Shawn Eichorst on Thursday.

Clemson kicker Huegel out for season, hurt knee in practice

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson has lost its kicker for the season after he was injured on the last play of practice.

Coach Dabo Swinney said a defensive lineman rolled into Greg Huegel's leg Wednesday after he kicked during a two-minute drill.

Swinney says the junior walked off the field, but tests Thursday showed he tore his ACL.
