WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Ian Book started at quarterback for No. 8 Notre Dame in its game against Wake Forest on Saturday.

The redshirt sophomore replaced Brandon Wimbush in the starting lineup, two days after coach Brian Kelly sidestepped questions about making a change at the position.

The Fighting Irish (3-0) won their first three games by a total of 20 points and didn't score more than 24 points in any of those games.


Iowa St. honors slain golfer before game

AMES, Iowa (AP) Iowa State honored slain golf star Celia Barquin Arozamena with an elaborate ceremony ahead of the Cyclones' game against Akron on Saturday.

Georgia ready for high-powered Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Georgia's defense has been so good this season it has some opposing quarterbacks in awe.

Wisconsin-Iowa could decide Big Ten West

The first Big Ten game of the season for No. 18 Wisconsin and Iowa could end up being the biggest one in the West division this season.

The Badgers (2-1), despite getting upset by BYU last weekend, still look like the class of the struggling West. But Iowa (3-0) and its dominant defense look like Wisconsin's most dangerous threat - and Saturday's game at Iowa City could go a long way in determining who reaches the Big Ten title game.


Clemson LB Joseph ruled out vs. Ga. Tech
