The national coordinator of NCAA football officials said replay officials at the Stanford-Notre Dame game were correct to let the call on the field for the last play of the game stand.

Field officials ruled Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor's progress had been stopped before he reached the ball across the goal line for what would have been a potential tying touchdown on fourth-and-goal in overtime.

There was a video review of the play and the call was confirmed, giving Notre Dame the 20-13 win Saturday.

National coordinator of officials Rogers Redding says there was nothing unusual about the way officials on the field or in the replay booth handled the decisive play. He also says that from the replay he saw, he "would have to let that call stand."

ILLINOIS: Coach Tim Beckman said transfer offensive lineman Ryan Klachko decided to stop playing football after suffering what Beckman said were "numerous" concussions.

The recent transfer from Nebraska had suffered concussions during practices more than once in the past couple of months. The 6-4, 290-pound Klachko was sitting out this season to comply with NCAA transfer rules.

LSU: Sports Illustrated reported that former Tigers cornerback Tyrann Mathieu might have violated NCAA rules by promoting a night club while he was a member of the team.

The magazine reports that Mathieu appeared in a video made by a group of his friends that goes by the name Era Nation in which he promotes a party at a Baton Rouge club called The Palace on March 10.

His pictures were also on fliers promoting the event called "Era Nation Album Release Party For Tyrann Mathieu." The flier also featured photographs of former LSU standout Morris Claiborne and current LSU sophomore defensive tackle Anthony Johnson.

NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes from allowing their names or pictures to be used in advertising the sale of a product or service.

NOTRE DAME: Quarterback Everett Golson did not pass all his cognitive tests after sustaining a concussion against Stanford and will not be allowed to resume practice until at least today.

Coach Brian Kelly said Golson is making progress but did not pass the computer portion of the cognitive test Tuesday. Kelly says he expects Golson to be ready to play against Brigham Young on Saturday. But he says he is getting backups Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix ready just in case.

TEXAS A&M: Defensive back Steven Campbell left the team because of lingering problems from a concussion.

Campbell sustained a concussion several weeks ago and hasn't played since. Campbell had nine tackles in two games this season and had 82 tackles, a sack and an interception in his career.
