Six more underclassmen, including troubled running back Reggie Cobb of Tennessee, have been cleared for the NFL draft, bringing to 28 the number of non-seniors who will be included in the selection process. Cobb, suspended from the Volunteer team last fall after failing a drug test for the third time, was one of four running backs in the group, bringing to 12 the number of running backs who have applied for the draft. Braxton Banks of Notre Dame was also cleared.

Reggie Cobb knows all about running. Running with the wrong crowd. Running to the cocaine dealer and being run off his college football team. Running scared. And, of course, running with a football. In less than three seasons at Tennessee, Cobb ran for 2,360 yards, but he was twice suspended for drug use, and that carries a label one never really runs away from.

Reggie Cobb, the top rusher for sixth-ranked Tennessee, was kicked off the team Thursday by Coach Johnny Majors for an unspecified violation of team rules. Majors did not say what the violation was, but that the dismissal is permanent. "I regret that action is necessary," Majors said. "But our rules are for the welfare of the team and the total university. They must be obeyed." Cobb, a junior from Knoxville, was suspended by Majors in February for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Stacey Simmons returned the opening kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown and caught a 39-yard scoring pass from Kerwin Bell as Florida beat Kentucky, 27-14, Saturday at Gainesville, Fla. The victory, before a crowd of 73,021 at Florida Field, stopped a two-game losing streak and might send the Gators, 6-4 overall and 3-3 in the Southeastern Conference, to the Aloha Bowl in Honolulu on Christmas Day. Bowl bids will be extended next Saturday. Kentucky fell to 5-5 and 1-4.

Junior tailback Reggie Cobb rushed for 225 yards in 22 carries, including a 79-yard touchdown run, to lead 12th-ranked Tennessee to a 21-14 upset victory over fourth-ranked Auburn Saturday in a rainy Southeastern Conference game. "I don't think people are yet giving us credit for being a good team, but each game we should be convincing them," Cobb said. Cobb became the first back to reach the 100-mark on Auburn's defense in 25 regular-season games.

GREEN BAY PACKERS Sept. 9, 10 a.m. Lambeau Field 1989 record: 10-6. Series record: Rams lead series, 38-22-1. Key offensive starter: Quarterback Don Majkowski, who still was holding out for a better contract as of earlier this week, was the trigger man who that brought the Pack back in 1989. Green Bay posted its their best record since 1972 and it included a number of dramatic--some would say fortunate--victories that hinged on some desperate fourth-and-long plays.

Buffalo defensive end Bruce Smith discounted a newspaper report saying a new six-year contract could be completed this week with the Bills. "I don't know what's being thrown around," Smith said. "They've been talking, but there's nothing to report." * The New York Jets released running back Reggie Cobb and punter Brian Hansen after the team claimed fullback Jerald Sowell from Green Bay and rookie punter Todd Kurz from Minnesota.

A year after underclassman Barry Sanders made himself available for the NFL draft, the league cleared 22 more juniors Thursday for the 1990 draft. Pro scouts rate perhaps 10 of them as first-round picks, making this potentially the deepest draft since 1983, when John Elway, Jim Kelly, Dan Marino and Eric Dickerson were first-round picks. Linebacker Keith McCants of Alabama might be the first player selected in the draft.
