Clemson, UNC lose quarterbacks

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Quarterbacks Woodrow Dantzler of Clemson and Ronald Curry of North Carolina were injured within six minutes of each other in the second quarter Saturday.

Dantzler, sixth in the nation in total offense and No. 1 in the ACC in rushing, bruised his left foot on a 24-yard scramble with the Tar Heels leading 17-0.

Minutes after Dantzler limped off, Curry was running a hurry-up offensive series when he was sandwiched between a Clemson defender and an offensive lineman 16 seconds before the half.

Curry, who threw for 201 yards in the half, didn't move for several minutes and was carried into the locker room with a twisted right knee.

Curry returned on North Carolina's second series of the second half with a brace on his injured knee. Dantzler did not return, although coach Tommy Bowden said he could have.

RUSHING RECORD DELAYED: Westminster stopped Grove City star R.J. Bowers from breaking the NCAA all-division career rushing record in its 23-0 win. Bowers, who needed 149 yards to break Brian Shay's record of 6,958 at Emporia State (Kan.), gained 61 on 23 carries. Grove City plays at Bethany, W.Va., on Saturday.

COLUMBIA: The third school to play intercollegiate football in 1870 reached into its history for a "Team of the Century" that featured the captain of its 1934 Rose Bowl winners. Cliff Montgomery, 90, quarterbacked the Lions to a 7-0 victory over Stanford in the last major bowl that featured an Ivy League team. A dozen living members of the 24-player team appeared during halftime ceremonies of the game against Dartmouth.

GEORGIA TECH: Wide receiver Kelly Campbell had six catches for 127 yards against Duke, moving into a tie for second on team's career list in receptions (115) and into third in receiving yards (1,807).

IOWA: Quarterback Jon Beutjer injured an ankle with 2:15 left in the first half and didn't return.

MINNESOTA: Charges of driving with a revoked license were dismissed against running back Tellis Redmon last week. Redmon was arrested Oct. 7 when officers said they saw a television playing inside his 1999 Honda Accord. Officers stopped the car and discovered that Redmon's driver's license was revoked and that he had outstanding warrants, according to police and jail records.

PITT: The 5-1 Panthers are off to their start since opening 5-0 in 1991, when they last had a winning record. They must win at least once in their final five games for a chance at their second bowl appearance in 11 years.

PURDUE: Quarterback Drew Brees threw for 274 yards against Wisconsin to set the Big Ten career passing mark. Brees has 10,567 yards, 106 more than Chuck Long had at Iowa from 1981-85. Brees broke Long's record with a 78-yard score to Seth Morales in the third quarter that gave the Boilermakers a 21-17 lead.

WEST VIRGINIA: Quarterback Brad Lewis sprained his right knee in the second quarter when he was sandwiched between Notre Dame defenders on a scramble. He didn't return.

YALE: Wide receiver Eric Johnson set a school record with 1,712 career receiving yards, eclipsing the 1,554 set 12 years ago by John Spagnola, who played for the Eagles, Seahawks and Packers in the NFL.
