The school investigated an incident in which 25 freshman players who attended the performance of "The Laramie Project" on Tuesday night as part of a class requirement were accused of heckling the performers with anti-gay slurs. However, because of what the school's Bias Incident Response Team called "conflicting reports" about the incident, every student and student-athlete who attended the play is required to attend an educational dialogue session. ---Minnesota coach Jerry Kill missed Saturday's game at Michigan because he had a seizure earlier in the day. Defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys coached the Gophers in Kill's absence. The school said in a statement that Kill did not travel with the team Friday because he was not feeling well. He had a seizure after that and stayed home. Kill, who has epilepsy, has had several game-day seizures, including one at the end of the first half against Western Illinois in September. Gophers athletic director Norwood Teague has said he fully supports Kill. The school was aware of Kill's condition when it hired him and has insisted it does not affect his ability to successfully coach the team. ---Georgia running back Keith Marshall left Saturday's game against Tennessee with a knee injury and will not return. Marshall took a hit to his right knee after attempting to make a first-quarter catch and had to be helped to the sideline. He was then carted to the locker room after trainer's examined the knee. The school announced he would not return. Marshall entered the game with 213 rushing yards. ---Louisville wide receiver DeVante Parker injured his right shoulder when he was tackled by Temple cornerback Anthony Robey following a 38-yard reception in the opening quarter of Saturday's game. Parker did not return. Parker entered Saturday's game as the Cardinals' leading receiver with 19 catches for 331 yards with six touchdowns. ---Maryland starting quarterback C.J. Brown left Saturday's game late in the first half against Florida State with a concussion. Brown was injured with 5:33 left in the second quarter of Saturday's showdown against Florida State. Brown was 6-for-14 passing for 82 yards when he suffered the injury, which occurred when FSU senior defensive tackle Jacobbi McDaniel leveled Brown on a long pass play. Replays showed McDaniel hit Brown in the chest with his helmet, but no penalty for roughing the passer or targeting was called. Brown stayed down for several minutes before getting up and being taken by the Terrapins' training staff directly to the locker room. He was replaced by sophomore Caleb Rowe.
