College football roundup: Clowney to have surgery after season

The SportsXchange

South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney said he plans to have surgery on his right foot at the end of the season, but will not miss any games.

Clowney has bone spurs in the foot that have been bothering him since high school.

"I'm going to get it cleaned out after the season's over with," he told the Spartanburg (S.C) Herald Journal. "It's painful. I'm out here playing on it though, just trying to give it everything I've got."

South Carolina beat Vanderbilt 35-25 Saturday.

Clowney has two sacks in three games this season, and forced a fumble on Saturday.

South Carolina has a bye this week, giving Clowney some rest before the Gamecocks visit Central Florida next.

---Nebraska fell out of both major polls after losing to UCLA on Saturday. The Associated Press and USA Today polls were released Sunday.
