TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State's Mario Edwards Jr. has a combination of power and agility.

The defense needs Edwards to replace the production of Timmy Jernigan.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Seven teenagers accused of entering an unlocked door at the home of former Miami Heat player Ray Allen have been charged with trespassing.
