Texas quarterback David Ash, who missed most of last season with concussion symptoms, will not play this week against BYU after getting headaches and feeling dizzy in the hours following the Longhorns' season-opening win over North Texas. Ash took several hard hits to the head in the 38-7 win, but head coach Charlie Strong said Monday that Ash showed no symptoms during the game. I know how important this football team is to him,'' Strong said. We will never jeopardize a young man's health for the sake of this football team.

The Alabama quarterback competition continues, even though the opener was all Blake Sims. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Monday that the battle for the No. 1 spot remains open between first-game starter Sims and Jake Coker, who mostly watched the second-ranked Alabama's 33-23 win over West Virginia from the sidelines. Expect Coker to get his first significant action Saturday against Florida Atlantic. ''I still don't hesitate to say that there's a quarterback competition,'' Saban said.

Florida State's Chris Casher remained listed as the starting outside linebacker on Monday's depth chart, but coach Jimbo Fisher said his status remains unknown. Fisher said the Seminoles are waiting for further information on the sophomore. Casher was pulled from the lineup due to an ''academic-related matter'' shortly before Florida State's 37-31 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday. ''There's no doubt it'' was an adjustment, Fisher said, ''because he's an excellent player, a great young man and had a great camp.'' The top-ranked Seminoles, however, will have sophomore receiver Jesus ''Bobo'' Wilson back from what became a one-game suspension.

Florida expects to know what will happen with its postponed season opener in the next two days. The Gators don't need nearly as much time to decide what to do about the suspensions of receiver Demarcus Robinson and defensive tackles Darious Cummings and Jay-nard Bostwick. Florida coach Will Muschamp reinstated Robinson, Cummings and Bostwick on Monday, saying they would play Saturday against Eastern Michigan (1-0). Muschamp could have kept their suspensions in place against Eastern Michigan or said they would be suspended against Idaho if the game is rescheduled.

Nebraska DE Randy Gregory doubtful for McNeese St (Yahoo Sports)

Coach Bo Pelini said Monday that Gregory had a basketball injury from several years ago ''flare up,'' and it caused a clicking sensation in his knee.

Urban Meyer has heard others say his team is too young, or that it was crippled by the loss of two-time Big Ten player of the year Braxton Miller. After the fifth-ranked Buckeyes came back from a slow start to beat Navy 34-17 on Saturday, Meyer said he doesn't want to hear anything more about inexperience or adversity. ''Enough with the excuses and get going.'' The Buckeyes trailed 7-6 at the half and by a point midway through the third quarter. He gave himself a stern talking to after throwing an interception while Ohio State was on the march inside the Navy 10 midway through the second quarter.

Bryce Petty took a bruising shot to his lower back on No. 10 Baylor's first offensive drive in its new riverfront stadium. Petty still managed to have a big impact in the impressive debut of McLane Stadium, accounting for three touchdowns in a 45-0 victory over SMU on Sunday night. SMU's three quarterbacks were sacked a combined eight times. The Mustangs (0-1) were held to 67 total yards, their fewest since coach June Jones took over in 2008, and shut out for the second time in their last three games.

Before the 10th-ranked Bears beat SMU 45-0 in their first game at McLane Stadium on Sunday night, a 9 1/2-foot bronze statue of Robert Griffin III was unveiled. The statue of Baylor's only Heisman Trophy winner is in a plaza between the stadium and the Brazos River, where some fans arrived by boat for the game - and others dived in for relief from temperatures in the mid-90s. ''When you come to Waco, you're going to see the statue of Judge Baylor, Coach (Grant) Teaff and Robert Griffin III.'' Griffin won the Heisman Trophy in 2011, the same season Baylor won 10 games for the first time since its outright 1980 Southwest Conference title. - NCAA Basketball

Tennessee center Mercedes Russell is expected to miss the entire 2014-15 season to give her time to recover from a history of foot problems. ''Mercedes has a history of orthopedic problems with her feet that our sports medicine staff is working to correct,'' Lady Vols coach Holly Warlick said Thursday in a university release. We look forward to seeing Mercedes back in action next season.'' Warlick had said last month that Russell had undergone offseason surgery on her right foot and that she was ''out kind of indefinitely.'' At the time, Warlick said she was uncertain about Russell's status for the start of the season. She averaged 6.3 points and 5.0 rebounds and had a team-high 40 blocks as a freshman while helping the Lady Vols go 29-6 and reach an NCAA regional semifinal.
