     COLLEGE FOOTBALL
 
     SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - It's Clemson vs. Alabama tonight in the College Football Championship at Santa Clara, California. Alabama already has five national championships in the past nine seasons, and winning another crown against Clemson would lift the Crimson Tide even further above other college football dynasties and into the conversation about the best runs in all of college sports.
 
     Even though college football is no big deal in Silicon Valley, the high-tech home of the NFL's San Francisco 49ers is a major reason the game was awarded to Levi's Stadium.

     COLLEGE FOOTBALL-OHIO STATE-HASKINS
 
     COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Record-setting Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. says he is leaving school to enter the NFL draft. The third-year sophomore announced today on Twitter that he will depart the program after one year as a starter in which he broke most school and Big Ten single-season passing records. He also finished third in Heisman Trophy voting. Haskins is projected to be a first-round draft pick.
 
     His decision comes after he completed 25 of 37 passes for 251 yards and three touchdowns in the Rose Bowl, which also was the last game for retiring coach Urban Meyer.
 
     The announcement Friday that Georgia quarterback Justin Fields would transfer to Ohio State divulged Haskins' decision. Haskins said he and Fields talked before Fields made the decision to come to Ohio State with a chance to be the starter next season.

     COLLEGE FOOTBALL-HALL OF FAME
 
    UNDATED (AP) - Texas quarterback Vince Young and Notre Dame speedster Raghib Ismail have been selected for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame, along with 11 other players and two coaches.
 
     Young was the Heisman Trophy runner-up and led the Longhorns to the 2005 national championship with a memorable performance in the Rose Bowl against Southern California. Ismail, better known as Rocket, was an electric receiver and kick returner for the Fighting Irish and the Heisman runner-up in 1990.
 
     The rest of the players to be enshrined at the National Football Foundation's award banquet in December include Arkansas running back Darren McFadden, Oklahoma defensive back Rickey Dixon, John Carroll linebacker London Fletcher, Texas A&M defensive lineman Jacob Green, North Carolina State receiver Torry Holt, Arizona State quarterback Jake Plummer, USC defensive back Troy Polamalu, Wisconsin offensive tackle Joe Thomas, Michigan State running back Lorenzo White and Mississippi linebacker Patrick Willis.
 
     Dennis Erickson, who coached Miami to two national championships, and Joe Taylor, who won 233 games at historically black colleges, were selected for induction as coaches.

     UNDATED (AP) - Duke, Michigan, Tennessee and Virginia remain in the top four spots of The Associated Press men's college basketball poll.

No. 2 Michigan received nine first-place votes, No. 3 Tennessee 13 and No. 4 Virginia five.
 
     No. 5 Gonzaga, Michigan State, Kansas, Texas Tech, Virginia Tech and Nevada rounded out the top 10. Kansas dropped two spots after losing to Iowa State, which moved into the poll at No. 20. Nevada and No. 13 Florida State each fell four spots after losing.

     NFL-CHARGERS-HENRY
 
     COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Chargers have added tight end Hunter Henry to the roster, less than eight months after he suffered a knee injury during an offseason workout.
 
     Henry, the team's second-round pick in 2016, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while running a route during a non-contact drill on May 22, the first day of organized team activities. He had surgery two weeks later and had been on the physically unable to perform list since the start of training camp.
 
     Henry returned to practice on Dec. 17 and took part in team drills last week as the Chargers prepared for their AFC wild-card game at Baltimore.

     NBA-CAVALIERS-LOVE
 
     CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers All-Star forward Kevin Love says he's still weeks away from getting on the court as he recovers from surgery on his left foot.
 
     Love played in just four games before undergoing surgery on Nov. 2 to relieve pressure around his big toe. He was recently cleared by doctors to begin some "select basketball activities," but Love said Monday he's not ready to run on the foot, which he injured in Cleveland's exhibition opener.
 
     The 30-year-old Love said it's been difficult to watch his teammates struggle - Cleveland has the NBA's worst record and dropped nine straight games - but he never considered not returning this season.
 
     Love signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension in July. He expects his name will surface in trade talks ahead of the deadline like it does every year. Love hopes to remain in Cleveland, saying: "I would love to be here. I would like to play ball here."
