130 hospitalized in 3-vehicle crash OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. -- Two buses and a van carrying Clark-Atlanta University students to an out-of-state game collided Saturday, sending at least 130 people to hospitals, police said.

No one was killed, and the injuries were not considered life-threatening.

The vehicles were carrying cheerleaders, university band members and fans traveling to Memphis for Clark-Atlanta's night game against Lane College.

The wreck occurred about 9 a.m. about 12 miles south of Memphis, Tenn., Olive Branch police Sgt. Bill Sanders said.

Sanders said traffic had been slowed on the highway because officers were cleaning up debris from an 18-wheeler crash that occurred before dawn.

"The lead bus had to stop due to traffic. The second bus veered to left to avoid an accident, but the third bus struck the van, which in turn ran into the first bus," Sanders said.

DRAKE: Billy Cundiff kicked a 62-yard field goal, a school record and 1 yard shy of the Division I-AA mark, in the Bulldogs' 52-12 win over San Diego. Cundiff's kick on the opening drive bettered the school record of 55 yards by Walt Brindley against Kansas on Oct. 16, 1920. The I-AA record is shared by Scott Roper of Arkansas State and Tim Foley of Georgia Southern, both in 1987.

ILLINOIS: Senior cornerback Trayvon Waller broke an ankle, ending his season.

NORTH CAROLINA: Receiver Kory Bailey injured a hamstring in the third quarter on a 78-yard touchdown reception, the longest scoring catch at Kenan Stadium by a Tar Heel.

PENN STATE: The Nittany Lions wore No. 43 on the back of their helmets to honor Adam Taliaferro, a freshman cornerback who sustained a severe spinal cord injury against Ohio State on Sept. 23.

RUTGERS: Starting right guard Travis Mills was declared ineligible against Miami hours before kickoff. Athletic director Robert Mulcahy said an internal review showed an NCAA rule had been misapplied in determining Mills' eligibility. Mulcahy said Mills was not at fault.

VIRGINIA TECH: Andre Davis became the team's first player to return two punts for touchdowns in a season since Frank Loria returned three for scores in 1966.
