Georgia star Todd Gurley done for season because of knee injury

Georgia star running back Todd Gurley is done for season because of a knee injury

Georgia tailback Todd Gurley's season has ended with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The school announced the injury Sunday. Surgery will be scheduled to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Gurley ran for 138 yards and a touchdown in Georgia's 34-7 win over then-No. 9 Auburn on Saturday night. The junior was injured with just over 5 minutes remaining on a 6-yard run.

Gurley was considered a leading Heisman Trophy candidate before receiving a four-game NCAA suspension for taking $3,000 for autographed memorabilia and other items over two years. Saturday's game was his first back.

The loss of Gurley leaves Nick Chubb as No. 9 Georgia's top running back for the rest of the season. The Bulldogs play Charleston Southern this week before closing its regular season against Georgia Tech.

Michigan's Clark arrested again

Michigan defensive end Frank Clark is in legal trouble again, locked in an Ohio jail on suspicion of domestic violence. Online records show the 21-year-old Ypsilanti-area resident was being held without bond Sunday in the Erie County jail in Sandusky, Ohio.

Perkins Township police arrested Clark on Saturday and say they expect to release more information on the case later Sunday.

Clark was arrested in 2012 for stealing a laptop computer from a Michigan dorm room. He was sentenced under a law that cleared the felony from his record after he completed probation.

Clark has 42 tackles and 4 1/2  sacks this season for Michigan, which hosts Maryland on Saturday.

Florida State still No. 1 in AP poll

Florida State is No. 1 again in The Associated Press college football poll in another comeback of sorts for a team with a season full of remarkable rallies.

The Seminoles (10-0) were preseason No. 1 before being replaced by Mississippi State in October. The Bulldogs (9-1) had a run of six weeks at No. 1 stopped by a 25-20 loss at Alabama on Saturday. The Seminoles received 43 first-place votes from the media panel. Alabama got 16 and No. 3 Oregon got one.
