LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Bobby Petrino watched his offense come together, and also enjoyed a solid performance for his defense. The opening of the Petrino sequel at Louisville doubled as one successful ACC debut for the Cardinals.

Dominique Brown had a 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Gerald Christian scored on a 10-yard TD catch late in the fourth, leading Louisville to a 31-13 victory over Miami on Monday night.

Despite the 18-point margin, Louisville showed little of the offensive efficiency expected to be a staple of Petrino's second coaching stint at the school. The Cardinals outgained the Hurricanes 336-244 in a ragged offensive game for both teams.


Texas QB Ash out vs. BYU with dizziness

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) 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. Ash called staff to report his symptoms about 90 minutes after the game ended, and the medical staff brought him in for evaluation.


Saban: No. 2 Alabama's QB job still open

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) 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.


Seminoles WR Wilson back, LB Casher iffy

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) 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.


QB Petty has 2 cracked bones in back

WACO, Texas (AP) Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty has two cracked small bones in his back.

Petty had an MRI on Monday, a day after taking an early shot to his back and playing only the first half of the 10th-ranked Bears' season-opening 45-0 win over SMU.


Washington turns to Miles at QB vs. EWU

SEATTLE (AP) After a lackluster offensive showing in its opener, No. 25 Washington will have a different quarterback for coach Chris Petersen's home debut.

Cyler Miles gets the start against Eastern Washington, Petersen announced on Monday. The sophomore replaces Jeff Lindquist, who struggled to move the offense for most of Washington's 17-16 win at Hawaii. Miles was suspended for spring camp and the season's first game for his involvement in two assaults the night of the Super Bowl in February. He wasn't charged in the incidents.


Gators reinstate 3 after game postponed

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) 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.


Nebraska DE Gregory doubtful vs. FAU

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory is doubtful for this week's game against McNeese State because of a knee injury, putting junior Jack Gangwish in line for his first start.

Gregory, who led the Big Ten in sacks last season, left the Florida Atlantic game after the Cornhuskers' first defensive series Saturday. 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.


Buckeyes hope for improvement vs. Hokies

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) 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.

He doesn't buy it.


Badgers troubled by offensive breakdown

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen has more questions than answers about his offense after his team's fourth-quarter collapse Saturday.

Duel-threat quarterback Tanner McEvoy struggled in his debut and running back Melvin Gordon had just four carries in the second half of the Badgers 28-24 loss to 13th-ranked LSU.
