OMAHA, Neb. -- Jake Young, an All-America center at Nebraska in 1988 and 1989, has been reported missing at the site of the bomb blasts in Bali, Indonesia. The Omaha World-Herald reported Young was at a night spot and restaurant Saturday when explosions, thought to be the work of terrorists, killed at least 187 people and injured hundreds more.

Rep. Tom Osborne, R-Neb., Young's former coach, said officials with the State Department had recovered Young's passport but had not located him by late Sunday.

Jo-Anne Prokopowicz, a State Department spokeswoman, said Sunday at least two Americans had been killed and three injured. Young's wife, Laura, told the World-Herald from the Kansas City, Mo., area that her husband has been living in Hong Kong and was visiting Bali to play with his rugby team.

ARKANSAS: Junior defensive end Keith Turner was in good condition after dislocating his hip in the Razorbacks' 38-17 win at Auburn, coach Houston Nutt said. Surgery might not be required, but Nutt said he probably will miss the rest of the season. Senior nose guard Raymond House sprained his right ankle and is questionable Saturday against Kentucky.

SOUTH CAROLINA: Starting safety Rashad Faison and reserve defensive end Jason Capers will miss Saturday's game with Louisiana State after spraining their left ankles against Kentucky. Reserve defensive end Randy Jackson is questionable with a left ankle sprain.

WEST VIRGINIA: Bleary-eyed players and coaches returned to campus Sunday evening, more than 18 hours after their charter flight from New Jersey was delayed. The Mountaineers boarded their Planet Airways flight at 9 p.m. Saturday after a 40-0 victory over Rutgers. Then the team sat in the plane about six hours before taking a bus to a hotel in Piscataway, N.J. The team again boarded the plane Sunday and arrived in Clarksburg at 4:45 p.m. A clear reason for the delay was not given.

The problems forced the coaching staff to miss its film sessions and delay the start of preparations for Saturday's home game against Syracuse. It was the second time this season the team has had problems with the Orlando-based airline. The team's flight from Wisconsin on Sept. 7 was delayed several hours because of a mechanical problem.

Late Saturday

AIR FORCE 52, BYU 9: Chance Harridge rushed for four TDs a second straight game. The host Falcons scored 45 straight after BYU opened with a field goal. Nationally ranked Air Force, the nation's top rushing team, had 463 yards, 386 rushing.
