Wim­bush will start at quar­ter­back against Florida State on Satur­day, a per­son fa­mil­iar with the de­ci­sion told The As­so­ci­ated Press, be­cause Ian Book is nurs­ing an up­per body in­jury,

Ir­ish coach Brian Kelly told re­porters at his post-prac­tice Thurs­day news con­fer­ence that Book had been limited at prac­tice with an up­per body in­jury and who starts would be game-time de­ci­sion. Kelly called Book day-to-day.

But a per­son speak­ing to the AP on con­di­tion of anonymity said Wim­bush is set to be the starter and Book is not ex­pected to play af­ter tak­ing a hard hit to the back and ribs last week against North­west­ern.

Kuchar tied for lead at work­ing va­ca­tion in Mex­ico.


MEX­ICO» Matt Kuchar de­cides CAR­MEN, at the last minute to play the Mayakoba Golf Clas­sic and makes it look like a wise de­ci­sion with a 7-un­der 64 for a share of the lead with Do­minic Bozzelli and PGA Tour rookie Kramer Hickok. Kuchar, who has gone more than four years since his last vic­tory on the PGA Tour, missed only two fair­ways at El Ca­ma­leon and was bo­gey-free for his low­est open­ing round since a 64 in the 2017 Phoenix Open.

Court urged to end rule that erased Her­nan­dez’s con­vic­tion.

BOS­TON» A le­gal prin­ci­ple that erased for­mer New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots player Aaron Her­nan­dez’s mur­der con­vic­tion af­ter he killed him­self in prison is out­dated, un­fair and should not stand, a Mas­sachusetts pros­e­cu­tor told the state’s high­est court.

It doesn’t make sense the for­mer New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots tight end is now in­no­cent in the eyes of the law just be­cause he died be­fore his ap­peal could be heard, Bris­tol County Dis­trict At­tor­ney Thomas Quinn III said. Quinn is urg­ing the court to re­in­state Her­nan­dez’s con­vic­tion and do away with the le­gal prin­ci­ple.
