College Football:


UNDATED — Southern Conferences showed plenty of offensive firepower in week one and plan to keep lighting up scoreboards this season. Eleven of 14 SEC teams scored 35 or more points and the conference won 13 of its 14 opening-week games. Top-ranked Alabama scored 51 points and LSU put an impressive 33 in a win over Miami. Many feel the defensive-minded SEC could be more offensive this season. By Pete Iacobelli. UPCOMING: 850 words by 2 p.m., photos.


RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren was headed out the door when he was asked a follow-up question about an injured player. Cracking a grin, Doeren jokingly responded, “I don’t have to tell you.” He’s right, and that could mean injury information could be tougher to find around the Atlantic Coast Conference this season.
