College football: Jones returning to UF lineup
GAINESVILLE -- Don't expect No. 12 Florida to ease running back Matt Jones into action.
Instead, the Gators (1-0) plan to work Jones early and often Saturday at Miami (1-0) -- a clear indication how they feel about the 6-foot-2, 226-pound sophomore.
Offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Jones, who missed three weeks of practice while recovering from a viral infection, could get as many as 25 carries against the Hurricanes.
"I'm not saying that's what he's going to get, but I expect him to be out there and be in the offense," Pease said. "We got to be smart in how we use him ... and the number of reps he can handle."

Motorsports: NASCAR bans girlfriend who slapped driver
DAYTONA BEACH -- NASCAR has indefinitely banned a driver's girlfriend from all events for slapping a rival racer after the Truck Series race Sunday in Bowmanville, Ontario.
NASCAR said that Kelly Heaphy, driver Mike Skeen's girlfriend, also was fined $2,500 for slapping Max Papis in the face.
Papis and Skeen had been battling for third in the closing laps of the race until contact between the two on the last lap ruined Papis' finish. The two hit again during the cool-down lap, and Papis voiced his displeasure about Skeen during his post-race interview. Heaphy then approached Papis and slapped him.
