ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Shea Patterson has impressed Michigan coaches and teammates over the last month, making plays with both his arm and feet.

When the former Mississippi quarterback goes under center for the Wolverines on Tuesday as they wrap up spring practice, his status with his new school will still be in limbo .

Two days later, Michigan's team will travel to Paris. By the time the Wolverines return to campus in early May, the NCAA may have granted Patterson a waiver to play immediately instead of sitting out the season after transferring. Or not.

Hurts so-so, Tagovailoa misses Tide game

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts threw an easy interception into the hands of cornerback Trevon Diggs to put an end to the first-team offense's final drive of the annual A-Day spring game.

Dual-threat QB Fields debuts for Georgia

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) A crowd of more than 82,000 cheered when Justin Fields jogged onto the field for the first time at Sanford Stadium at Georgia's G-Day spring game on Saturday.

Notre Dame defense improving under Lea

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Defense is supposed to be one of the strengths of Notre Dame's 2018, with 10 returning starters.

McSorley says PSU offense will roll on

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Trace McSorley holds numerous Penn State passing records and will have more chances to add to his legacy with co-stars Saquon Barkley and Mike Gesicki gone.

But finding go-to teammates that can replace Barkley's and Gesicki's production - nearly 40 percent of the offense since 2015 - didn't top McSorley's priority list during spring practice. Instead, he spent the last month reminding his teammates on the offensive side of the ball that they still have plenty to prove.
