Denard Robinson's position for the final game of his college career is a secret.

The three-year starting quarterback might not throw for No. 19 Michigan against No. 11 South Carolina on New Year's Day in the Outback Bowl. He probably will catch some passes, lining up as a running back or receiver.

Robinson said he hopes showing that he can make plays without taking snaps will help NFL teams see what he can do.

Texas Tech said Monday that three Red Raiders won't face Minnesota in Friday's Meineke Car Care Bowl because they violated undisclosed team rules. They are: starting defensive back Cornelius Douglas; Chris Payne, a linebacker who played mostly on special teams; and backup defensive tackle Leon Mackey.

BASEBALL: Brad Corbett, 75, who owned the Texas Rangers from 1974 to 1980 and was known for frequently switching managers, died in his sleep Monday in Houston.

SOCCER: England's Guardian newspaper reported that the Football Association will not take action against Swansea City defender Ashley Williams for kicking a ball at the head of Manchester United striker Robin van Persie in an English Premier League game Sunday.

Van Persie was struck on the back of the head from close range while lying on the ground but was able to continue playing. Williams, who denied malicious intent, was given a yellow card.

United manager Alex Ferguson had called on the FA to give Williams a lengthy suspension, saying Van Persie "could have been killed" in the incident. "That was the most dangerous thing I've seen on a football field for many years," the veteran manager said.
