The biggest casualty of the five weekend “classic” games appears to be Lee Corso’s rental car, which was struck by lightning Sunday night during violent thunderstorms that forced postponement of the BCA Classic--Georgia Tech at No. 11 Virginia Tech.
ESPN aired video of a red car being hit by a bolt of lightning in the parking lot at the north end of Lane Stadium. Corso, ESPN GameDay’s analyst, was not certain the car was his until he left the stadium.
Colorado defensive end Tyler Brayton was suspended indefinitely after a fight with another player during practice at Boulder, Colo.
Brayton scuffled with freshman tight end Jesse Wallace, who suffered a mild concussion and a cut to the head, Coach Gary Barnett said.
Georgia suspended senior receiver Michael Greer for the first five games of the season for violating team rules.
Coach Jim Donnan did not specify the reason for the suspension just five days before the 10th-ranked Bulldogs will open the season at home against Georgia Southern.
