FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) TCU receiver and standout returner KaVontae Turpin was suspended from the team Monday after his arrest over the weekend on an assault charge for an alleged altercation with his girlfriend.

According to an arrest affidavit, Turpin was charged with assault causing bodily injury to a family member after Fort Worth police responded to a domestic disturbance call at an off-campus apartment complex late Saturday.

Coach Gary Patterson said he was still gathering information and that Turpin probably won't play Saturday at Kansas. The senior receiver is suspended indefinitely.


Vols expect QB Guarantano to play

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt says he expects quarterback Jarrett Guarantano to be available Saturday at South Carolina. The sophomore was knocked out of the game early in a loss to No. 1 Alabama last week.

"I think Jarrett's going to be fine," Pruitt said Monday. "He took a pretty good shot, a couple of good shots. He's a tough guy and I expect him to be out there."


Indiana loses backup QB to torn ACL

Indiana's path to the postseason just got a lot more difficult.

After losing three straight and falling to .500, the Hoosiers are about to hit the road on a short week against a hungry team still seeking its first conference win. And now, they'll make the trip without their No. 2 quarterback.


TCU QB Robinson to have surgery

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) TCU coach Gary Patterson says sophomore quarterback Shawn Robinson will have surgery, and that Michael Collins will take over as the starter.

Patterson never specifically said Monday what surgery Robinson would have, but the decision comes more than three weeks after the quarterback took a direct shot on his non-throwing left shoulder and had to be helped off the field in the closing seconds of a 17-14 win over Iowa State on Sept. 29.


Erratic Pitt still in contention in ACC

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi doesn't spend a lot of time focusing on the big picture. He prefers to stay attuned to the little one. It's why he tries to divide each season into 12 separate but equal tests, one no more important than another.

Yet Narduzzi also understands he's not a perpetually plugged in 20-year-old player. Which is why he hasn't felt the need to remind the Panthers (3-4, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) where they're at heading into the stretch run.

Alabama looks to improve before LSU game

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) After spending the first two months of the season dominating college football, No. 1 Alabama heads into its open date believing it still has plenty of room for improvement.

Opponents may wonder how much better the Crimson Tide can get. Alabama (8-0, 5-0 SEC) has outscored teams by 35.8 points per game and has averaged 54.1 points to lead all Football Bowl Subdivision programs . Alabama trounced Tennessee 58-21 on Saturday while posting the highest point total ever produced by a visiting team at Neyland Stadium, which opened in 1921.

Michigan beats MSU after pregame spat

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan had plenty of reasons to be motivated to beat Michigan State, barely defeating its in-state rival over the last decade and losing to every ranked team on the road for a dozen years.

The Wolverines, though, were even more fired up to win after a pregame spat with the Spartans.
