Georgia Athletic Director Vince Dooley said Saturday that Northwestern football Coach Gary Barnett was in town to discuss the opening left by Ray Goff's firing. Barnett offered a different explanation for his visit Friday. "I was in Georgia on a recruiting visit and decided to stop by and see Vince Dooley and tour the facilities at Georgia," Barnett said Saturday in a statement. "It was simply just that. I'm not a candidate for the job at Georgia and have not thrown my hat into that ring."

Even if Major Harris' arm is a little sore, his feet aren't. And that worries Clemson Coach Danny Ford as his team prepares to meet West Virginia today in the Gator Bowl at Jacksonville, Fla. Harris, the West Virginia quarterback who was third in Heisman Trophy voting, missed some practice this week with bursitis in his right elbow, but will play. "His feet can beat you as well as his arm," Ford said. No. 17 West Virginia is 8-2-1; No. 14 Clemson is 9-2.
