Weekend rewind

For those of you who were still celebrating with family Sunday, here's a quick recap of the weekend's news:

  • Georgia Tech senior DE Anthony Egbuniwe, junior DB Michael Peterson and freshman DB Louis Young will sit out the first half of Monday's AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl against Air Force because they missed a team curfew. Egbuniwe started all 12 regular-season games. Young has been one of the top reserves in the secondary, and Peterson is a backup corner and a member of special teams.

  • Virginia Tech’s arrival to South Florida for the Discover Orange Bowl has been delayed until 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday because of heavy snow to in eastern Virginia. The NC State Champs Sports Bowl pep rally, which was scheduled for 5:45 p.m. on Monday at Pointe Orlando, has been canceled. The Wolfpack band and cheerleaders had planned to leave from campus on Sunday morning, but because of snow in the area, students in both groups were unable to get back to Raleigh after spending Christmas at home. The band and cheerleaders are now scheduled to leave Raleigh this morning and will be in Orlando in plenty of time for game-day activities on Tuesday.

  • Florida State starting tight end Beau Reliford is academically ineligible to compete in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl and was not with the team in Atlanta. Junior left tackle Andrew Datko, whose shoulder injuries prevented him from practicing in Tallahassee, worked with the first team throughout Sunday’s session in Atlanta. Quarterback Christian Ponder and offensive lineman Rodney Hudson have both accepted invitations to the Under Armour Senior Bowl. The game is Jan. 29 in Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala., and will be televised live on NFL Network.
