Chane Behanan could be available for No. 3 Louisville when it faces South Florida on Saturday. Cardinals coach Rick Pitino said Friday that X-rays revealed a spur in Behanan's injured left ankle that was causing pain rather than the sprain the sophomore forward sustained in practice on Monday. He missed Wednesday night's 73-58 victory at Seton Hall and was expected to be out 7 to 10 days. Behanan told assistant coaches that he was ready to play and Pitino said, "he says he can play, so I'm going to take him for his word.

STATE COLLEGE - The injury bug seems to be the Nittany Lions' weeklong opponent. As Penn State (6-3, 4-1 Big Ten) readies for its last road game of the season, Saturday against the Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-1), the Lions could be without two of their star players - senior defensive tackle Jordan Hill (knee) and redshirt freshman tight end Kyle Carter (foot). Meanwhile, running back Curtis Dukes (head), who generally sees time on special teams, is out. At his weekly news conference on Tuesday, coach Bill O'Brien said both Hill and Carter are day-to-day.

Nebraska might look back on its record-setting comeback win over Ohio State as the game that saved its season. A week after a 31-point loss at Wisconsin, the Cornhuskers trailed by 21 points in the third quarter before they rallied to win, 34-27, Saturday night in the greatest comeback in program history. With a challenging schedule in their inaugural Big Ten season, an 0-2 start in league play would have been devastating for the preseason pick to win the Legends Division.

MADISON, Wis. - Russell Wilson gave Nebraska a harsh welcome to the Big Ten, throwing for two touchdowns and running for another in No. 7 Wisconsin's 48-17 rout of the eighth-ranked Cornhuskers on Saturday night. Montee Ball ran for 151 yards and four touchdowns for the Badgers (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten). But Wilson was the main attraction for a prime-time television audience as Wisconsin overcame a slow start to solidify its status as the class of the conference. Taylor Martinez threw three interceptions for the Huskers (4-1, 0-1)

Trent Richardson rushed for 120 yards and caught a 61-yard touchdown pass, and No. 3 Alabama overwhelmed No. 14 Arkansas in a 38-14 win on Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) scored on special teams and defense, and used the old-fashioned power run to emphatically win the SEC West showdown that the Razorbacks (3-1, 0-1) hoped would stamp them as legitimate contenders. Instead, the league's top defense thoroughly overpowered Tyler Wilson and the No. 1 offense.

THE GUNSLINGER is headed for the town of Laramie, Wyo., and the town folk are awaiting the outlaw with open arms. The big, bad Red of Nebraska is invading the University of Wyoming campus to take on the 3-0 Cowboys in an obvious mismatch. But officials at the university are touting tomorrow's game against the No. 9 Huskers as "the most anticipated game in UW football history. " Anticipated? The Cornhuskers (3-0) are favored by more than three touchdowns, and no one cares about the game unless the Cowboys pull off an Appalachian State.

CHICAGO - Forget, for once, the annual regular season-ending blood feud between Ohio State and Michigan. The Buckeyes and Wolverines go at it on Nov. 26 in Michigan Stadium, with first-year coaches at the helm for the first time since 1929. But the bowl-ineligible Buckeyes are in the NCAA doghouse and the Wolverines are coming off the nightmare of the 3-year Rich Rodriguez coaching experiment, during which the winningest program in the history of college football went 15-24, including 6-18 in the Big Ten. No, the Big Ten game of the year in 2011 figures to be the Oct. 1 scrum in Camp Randall Stadium between two red-clad heavyweights that, in certain ways, are mirror images of one another.

A'dia Mathies scored 21 points and a quicker, more athletic Kentucky roared past top-seeded Nebraska, 76-67, last night and into the finals of the Kansas City Regional. The Wildcats will meet Oklahoma in the regional finals tomorrow night. Kentucky (28-7), which extended its school-record win total, opened the second half on an 11-1 run and led by as many as 19 points over the Big 12 champion Huskers, who saw an abrupt end to the most successful season in the history of their own program.
