COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri quarterback Brad Smith became the second player in NCAA history to pass for 2,000 yards and rush for 1,000 in a season Saturday against Kansas State.
Smith entered needing 1 yard rushing to join Clemson quarterback Woody Dantzler, who reached the marks last season. Smith reached the milestone on a 3-yard carry in the first quarter.
He didn't get much more, gaining 30 yards on 13 carries and going 7-for-24 for 126 yards with an interception. He finished with 1,029 rushing yards and 2,333 passing.
CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State kick returner Brandon Catenese was charged with steroid possession and did not play.
The citation was issued Oct.28, but the charge wasn't made public until Friday, the day before the 106th meeting with Oregon.
Police said they found the steroids during a June1 search of Catenese's residence in an investigation that did not involve him.
"I just think it's strange that the incident would have happened six months ago and there just happens to be a press release on Friday at noon before the Civil War," Oregon State athletic director Bob De Carolis said. "They've known for a while. Why today?"
