Nov. 14 (Washington Post) -- Three Southern Mississippi players are in fair condition at a Hattiesburg hospital after being shot during a fight at a nightclub early Sunday morning, city police spokesman Sgt. Allen Murray told the Associated Press. Hours after Southern Mississippi earned a 31-21 win at then-No. 25 Central Florida, fifth-year senior linebacker Martez Smith, junior linebacker Tim Green and junior defensive end Deddrick Jones were involved in a fight that began inside Remington's Hunt Club before spilling into the parking lot, where the shootings occurred. Green and Jones had played against Central Florida. Smith - previously the starting middle linebacker - suffered a season-ending knee injury in October. . . . Boise State starting middle linebacker Byron Hout will miss the remainder of the season with a broken foot, Broncos Coach Chris Petersen told reporters Sunday. Hout will undergo surgery later this week after breaking his foot during Boise State's 52-14 win Friday over Idaho. It remains unclear whether Hout will be able to play in the Broncos' bowl game. Boise State, which moved up one spot to No. 3 in the Associated Press top 25 poll Sunday, will host Fresno State on Friday. . . . Oregon tailback LaMichael James, the nation's leading rusher, told the Portland Tribune he plans to practice this week after injuring his left ankle during the Ducks' 15-13 win Saturday over California. - Steve Yanda
