    AUSTIN, Texas -- Former Baylor University President Ken Starr resigned his post as a law school professor Friday, severing his last tie with the faith-based campus still reeling from a sexual assault scandal involving its football team.Starr, an ex-prosecutor best known nationally for zealously pursuing charges against former U.S. President Bill Clinton in a 1990s White House sex scandal, had in more recent years been a high-profile face of Baylor. But he lost his job as president in May and later stepped down as chancellor amid allegations the school in the central Texas city of Waco mishandled several cases in which football players were accused of attacking women.Successful football coach Art Briles also was ousted.Baylor, the nations largest Baptist university, said in a joint statement issued with Starr that he will be leaving his faculty status and tenure with the law school in a separation that was mutually agreed upon. It was Starrs final remaining Baylor positon.Baylor wishes Judge Ken Starr well in his future endeavors, the statement said. Judge Starr expresses his thanks to the Baylor family for the opportunity to serve as president and chancellor and is grateful for his time with the exceptional students of Baylor University who will lead and serve around the world.Last year, Starr ordered an investigation by the Pepper Hamilton law firm to review Baylors handling of sexual assault cases after months in which he stayed mostly silent on the issue. Starr took over as the universitys president in 2010, about a decade after he investigated Clintons sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.Starrs demotion from all but the law school professorship followed the law firms scathing 13-page summary report that found Baylor, under Starrs leadership, did little to respond to accusations of sexual assault involving football players.Investigators said football coaches and athletics administrators at the school had run their own improper investigations into rape claims and that, in some cases, they chose not to report such allegations to an administrator outside of athletics.By mounting their own untrained investigations and meeting directly with a complainant, football staff improperly discredited complainants claims and denied them a right to a fair, impartial and informed investigation.Investigators also found that Baylor was too slow to enact federally required student-conduct processes, and that administrators failed to identify and eliminate a potential hostile environment for victims.The football team nonetheless enjoyed unprecedented success recently, including two Big 12 championships in the last three years. In 2014, Baylor opened a new, $250 million on-campus football stadium.Starr had been a high-profile fan and often ran on the football field with Baylor students in pregame ceremonies. But as sexual assault investigations began, Starr provided only brief comments -- even as criticism began to intensify.

Neither of Alabamas two young quarterbacks did enough to separate themselves from the group in the Crimson Tides 52-6 win over Southern Cal.For the second straight week, coach Nick Saban will play both true freshman Jalen Hurts and redshirt freshman Blake Barnett when the top-ranked Crimson Tide hosts Western Kentucky at 3:30 ET Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.I thought that both guys were a little shaky in the beginning in terms of how they played, and I think that the longer they played in the game, the better they played, Saban said. That goes for both guys.I still think that we need to play two quarterbacks to try to gain the experience and knowledge and consistency that we need to see. We may do it a little different way than we did last week. But I think well probably still play two guys in the game.Barnett earned the start and completed 5-of-6 passes for 100 yards, a touchdown and no turnovers.Hurts entered the game after the second series and accounted for four touchdowns (two passing, two rushing). But he also turned the ball over twice.Jalen did a nice job in some of the things he did, turned the ball over a couple of times, Saban said. When Blake went back in the game, he actually played with a lot more confidence and a lot more poise.I think we need to continue to develop both of those players. It was encouraging that both players played better as they played in the game, which should be expected of freshmen.Hopefully, well see big improvement in this game.Alabama isnt playing a top-20 team like USC, but Western Kentucky is no slouch, despite being outscored in two previous meetings with Alabama by a combined score of 76-7.

He came to the Hilltoppers after two years at South Florida, where he had 15 starts.Wide receiver Taywan Taylor had four receptions covering at least 25 yards among his five receptions, and wide receiver Nicholas Norris had an 87-yard touchdown reception among his team-high seven receptions.We had two teams in our league that actually lost to teams that were nowhere near this good, Saban said, referring to Southern Mississippis win at Kentucky and South Alabamas win at Mississippi State. Nowhere near what they accomplished a year ago.Nowhere near the number of players coming back. These are not things that we can take at all for granted. We need to get ready to play this game as if were playing a really good football team, because we are.As for Hilltoppers coach Jeff Brohm, he has the requisite respect for the Tide.Were not blind, he said. We see what everyone else sees. This is the very best team in the country. Theyve got tremendous talent, great size, great speed at every position.
