COLLEGE FOOTBALL

4 Nebraska players to miss bowl game

• Nebraska defensive end Avery Moss returned to his home in Arizona to attend to a personal issue and won’t play in the Gator Bowl against No. 23 Georgia next week. Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini also announced Friday that linebacker Jared Afalava and receivers Richard Wynne and Ishmail Jackson violated team rules and won’t be on hand for Wednesday’s game in Jacksonville, Fla. Moss has played in every game, starting three, and was second on the team with 4.5 sacks and six quarterback hurries.

• Longtime Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti announced Friday that he will retire following next week’s game against Texas in the Alamo Bowl. Aliotti has spent 24 years with the Ducks, including 17 as defensive coordinator. He said it was time to step away from football after 38 years in coaching, including a brief stint in the NFL with St. Louis as an assistant in the 1990s. Aliotti’s defense allowed 21.6 points per game this season for the No. 10 Ducks.

• Video from a traffic stop shows South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney telling an officer he had just three minutes to make it to the stadium when he was stopped for doing almost 30 mph over the speed limit. The dash camera video was released Friday by Columbia police, a day after Clowney was stopped on Interstate 26 about 6 miles from Williams-Brice Stadium. The Gamecocks were gathering there to travel to Florida for the Capital One Bowl against Wisconsin on Jan. 1. The officer tells Clowney he was clocked doing 84 mph in a 55 mph zone. Clowney tells him he was trying to get to the stadium before the team left.

• Fresno State receiver Davante Adams will skip his final two seasons of college to enter the NFL draft. Adams caught 233 passes for 3,031 yards and 38 touchdowns in 26 games at Fresno State over the past two seasons. He sat out his first year as a redshirt so he is eligible for the draft. Adams led the nation in receptions per game (10.1), total receptions (131) and touchdown catches (24) this season.
