Three Southern Mississippi Football Players Shot After Fight At Nightclub

     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
     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
     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.
