OKEMOS, Mich. (AP) Police have asked for help from the public in locating former Michigan State defensive end Auston Robertson, who is charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Prosecutors announced the charge against the 19-year-old Robertson on Friday, and the Meridian Township Police Department posted a message on its website seeking information about Robertson's whereabouts. Assistant Chief Ken Plaga indicated on Saturday that the situation had not changed.

Robertson is accused of forcing a woman to have sex with him at her apartment on April 8. Shortly after the charge against him was announced Friday, Michigan State said he had been dismissed from the football team.


Hurts, RBs looking up for Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama's offensive backfield is sporting a new look these days, even if in some ways it's only temporary.

Coaches and teammates say quarterback Jalen Hurts has improved his dropback passing during spring practices while his freshman backups learned the offense and got acclimated to college life. Then there's a talented group of tailbacks, half of whom are recovering from injuries and unlikely to play in Saturday's spring game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.


Eason 'electric' in Georgia spring game

The results were mixed, especially for Eason, the sophomore returning starter .

Irish show off new QB, coordinators

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) This year of sweeping change for Notre Dame passed another mile marker Saturday with the Blue and Gold spring game.

The 20,000 or so fans that took in the 2-hour intra-squad scrimmage at Notre Dame Stadium on a bright day got a glimpse of a promising first-year starting quarterback and a taste of the schemes being implemented by new coordinators on both sides of the ball.


Kiffin wraps up first spring at FAU

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Lane Kiffin had his trademark windbreaker on for Florida Atlantic's spring game, replete with the omnipresent visor underneath the headset.

The look for FAU's coach hasn't changed.


Baylor's offense will be much different

WACO, Texas (AP) While the first public glimpse at Baylor's new offense was vanilla by design, there were very clear indications during the Bears' spring game that some things will be drastically different under new coach Matt Rhule.

Bears fans and Big 12 opponents better get used to seeing Zach Smith and other quarterbacks line up under center at times in I-formation sets with fullbacks and tight ends. That all but never happened during the last regime.
