Reporters' Notebooks

Glenn Guilbeau, Shreveport Times: Louisiana State's Glenn Dorsey, victim of a chop block by Auburn, is expected to play in the Tigers' next game, Nov. 3 at Alabama. The Southeastern Conference is expected to address the play Monday. Video.

Evan Woodbery, Mobile Press-Register: Auburn's Tommy Tuberville said the block on Dorsey was unintentional and without "malice."

Eric Crawford, Louisville Courier-Journal: The Big East Conference acknowledged that the officiating crew working the Louisville-Connecticut game blew the call when the Huskies' Larry Taylor got away with signaling for a fair catch, then took off on a 74-yard return for a touchdown. Video.

Joseph Person, Columbia State: South Carolina's Steve Spurrier, fresh off his first loss to Vanderbilt, isn't taking kindly to Gamecock fans booing an offense that has not scored a touchdown in six quarters.

Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times: The best way to move up in the Bowl Championship Series standings? Take a water break.

Wendell Barnhouse, Fort Worth Star-Telegram: More shame for the BCS? West Virginia and South Florida win out and the Mountaineers finish No. 2 in the BCS and play for the national title. The embarrassment? West Virginia would not be the Big East champion because it lost its head-to-head meeting with South Florida.

Tim Doherty, Clarion-Ledger: Southern Mississippi built a 20-0 lead Sunday night, then held off Marshall, 33-24.

Irv Moss, Denver Post: Air Force coach Troy Calhoun jumped on the patriotic bandwagon in passionate support of a potential rematch with Navy in the Dec. 20 Poinsettia Bowl.

Pete Pelegrin, Miami Herald: Without losers, there wouldn't be winners. So it's time to meet Florida International, losers of 19 in a row, the nation's longest skid.

Kevin Tatum, Philadelphia Inquirer: Temple, which has won three in a row — yes, three in a row!has lost playmaking quarterback Adam DiMichele to a season-ending injury.

just a quick correction, Adam DiMichele is the qb who is out for the season. Vaughn Charlton is now the starter for the Owls
