FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Ty Summers has come to enjoy chasing quarterbacks and making tackles since he started playing for No. 15 TCU. Summers has made an impressive transition to defense in his five years at TCU after being an all-district dual-threat quarterback in high school. He has now gone from primarily being a linebacker to starting the first two games of his senior season at defensive end. He is the active career tackles leader for the Frogs, who next play fourth-ranked Ohio State.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference has called off Saturday’s football game at South Carolina State. The Bulldogs were set to take on North Carolina Central in their home opener. However, MEAC commissioner Dennis Thomas postponed the contest because of the approach of Hurricane Florence and safety concerns for the players and fans from both teams. South Carolina State is located about 75 miles northwest from Charleston. The game was moved to Saturday, Nov. 24.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has decided to move forward with a clear-cut starter at quarterback, after watching Skylar Thompson and Alex Delton both struggle the first two weeks of the season. So, it will be Thompson getting nearly all the snaps when the Wildcats face Texas-San Antonio in their non-conference finale on Saturday.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — For all the progress Iowa State has made under coach Matt Campbell, the offensive line has long been a sore spot. The Cyclones showed in their opener that their rebuilt line has yet to find itself. Iowa State gained just 188 yards in a 13-3 loss to Iowa. No. 5 Oklahoma is up next for the Cyclones.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor has dismissed sophomore point guard Alexis Morris from the team for violating team rules. Coach Kim Mulkey said only that the move was effective immediately. Morris started all six postseason games last March for the Big 12 champion Lady Bears.
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke has to replace perhaps its most irreplaceable football player. Quarterback Daniel Jones took virtually every meaningful snap for the Blue Devils over the past two-plus seasons. But he’s out indefinitely with a broken collar bone. So now Duke must figure out a way to win with backup Quentin Harris. Receiver Johnathan Lloyd doesn’t expect a dropoff and says the Blue Devils “just have to plug him in.”
