ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan dismissed running back O'Maury Samuels from its football program the same day he was arraigned on two charges, including one for domestic violence. The school did not say why the move was made. Samuels was charged with domestic violence and malicious destruction of personal property. Samuels did not run the ball for the eighth-ranked Wolverines after Oct. 13, when he had one carry for 3 yards in a win over Wisconsin. The sophomore finished the season with 66 yards rushing.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Cornhuskers are a hungry and humble basketball team. Hungry because they just missed out on making the NCAA Tournament last season despite winning 22 games, setting a school record with 13 conference wins and finishing fourth in the Big Ten. Humble because for all the success they've had getting out to an 8-2 start, they still have a couple disappointing losses to remind them they aren't good enough to win most nights unless they bring their best effort.

UNDATED (AP) — Just more than a month after the season started, there are only nine unbeaten teams left in Division I men's college basketball. And it's a similar story at the other end of the spectrum: Only five teams have yet to win a game.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kenisha Bell scored 20 points, Destiny Pitts made four 3-pointers and added 14 points and No. 13 Minnesota remained undefeated with an 84-52 victory over Coppin State. Minnesota followed up its highest scoring first quarter of the season at 29 with its most halftime points, 50, for a 24-point lead.

UNDATED (AP) — It will be a classic mentor-mentee matchup when defending national champion Nebraska and Illinois meet in the NCAA volleyball semifinals in Minneapolis on Thursday night. John Cook has coached the Cornhuskers to their fourth straight final four. Chris Tamas has led the Illini to the semifinals in his second year after serving as an assistant to Cook. Top-seeded Stanford plays BYU in the other semifinal. The winners will play for the championship on Saturday night.
