COLLEGE FOOTBALL AT A GLANCE : AROUND THE NATION

Dayne Is Back in Lineup for Wisconsin

Ron Dayne's stint on the sideline is over, Wisconsin Coach Barry Alvarez said Monday.

The Badger sophomore tailback will play Saturday at San Jose State.

Dayne pinched a nerve in his right shoulder and neck during a preseason practice Aug. 11. The stinger hampered him in the Badgers' 34-0 loss to Syracuse in the season opener Aug. 24, and he did not play in Saturday's 28-24 victory over Boise State.

Steve Spurrier, paid $1 million for leading Florida to its first national championship, will now earn nearly twice that much.

Under his new contract that was finalized Monday, Spurrier becomes the highest-paid coach in college football with a six-year deal worth about $11.8 million.

Spurrier, who made about $940,000 last year, will make more than $1.9 million this year from such things as his base salary, clothing contracts, television shows, speeches and a $275,000 signing bonus.

And that doesn't include the $99,000 bonus he will get if Florida wins another national championship.
