The SportsXchange

Notre Dame and Georgia are in talks to play a home-and-home football series between the schools for 2018 and 2019, CBSSports.com reported Tuesday.

Notre Dame's last regular-season game against an SEC opponent was a 41-21 win over Tennessee in 2005.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity acknowledged the schools have had discussions. The dates remain to be determined, senior associate athletic director John Heisler told ESPN.com.

---Incoming freshman quarterback Deshaun Watson was shut down for the remainder of Clemson's spring practice with a fracture collarbone.

Watson was injured Monday and is still expected to be in contention for the starting job in the fall. The Tigers are coming off of a BCS bowl game but lost quarterback Tajh Boyd and several key offensive players, including All-American wide receiver Sammy Watkins. Watson was the No. 1-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2014 recruiting class.

The Vancouver Canucks fired general manager Mike Gillis on Tuesday, one day after the team was eliminated from Stanley Cup playoff contention.

Gillis was hired by the Canucks in April 2008. Under Gillis, the Canucks reached the Stanley Cup Final in 2011 and won the Presidents' Trophy in back-to-back seasons (2010-12). Gillis won the GM of the Year award in 2010-11. The Canucks were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round each of the previous two seasons, winning just one game in the process.

---The Los Angeles Kings signed former first-round draft pick Trevor Lewis to a two-year contract extension through the 2015-16 season on Tuesday.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The 27-year-old Lewis, picked 17th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, has a career-best six goals and 11 points in 70 games this season.

His career totals in 273 games with the Kings are 18 goals, 30 assists and 57 penalty minutes during the regular season and five goals, 11 assists and six penalty minutes in 44 playoffs games, including the Kings' 2012 Stanley Cup championship run.
