Three University of Arkansas football starters have been arrested in response to a report of parked cars being broken into at an apartment complex.

Ty Mason, Terence "JuJu" Harshaw and Scott Long, all of Fayetteville, were arrested there on three counts each of breaking or entering and theft of property when officers stopped a pickup truck and found items stolen from three vehicles at the apartments.

Mason, 21, is a junior linebacker; Harshaw, 21, a senior fullback and Long, 20, a sophomore defensive tackle.

Long was charged too with a misdemeanor of carrying a .22-caliber handgun. . . .

Ken Hatfield, Clemson's first-year coach -- after several years at the Arkansas helm -- won't say what disciplinary action he plans for all-ACC cornerback Dexter Davis, charged with drunken driving on the weekend. Tailback Terry Allen was suspended for Clemson's opener last year against Furman for a similar offense. . . .

Oklahoma offensive lineman Zarek Peters, who was shot by fellow Sooner Jerry Parks in his dorm room last year, says he's transferring to Texas A&I. Peters (6-5, 280) still has a .22-caliber bullet lodged behind a shoulder blade. . . .

A player who suffered a heatstroke during preseason football drills last year has sued Louisville Coach Howard Schnellenberger for damages.

Tom Sedam, 19, who was a 6-foot-5, 266-pound freshman recruit from Troy, Ohio, claims Schnellenberger "negligently and carelessly failed to properly supervise . . . and furnish all necessary supplies and materials, including sufficient amounts of water. . . . "

Sedam, living with a sister in Loganville, Ga., left school for the year after being felled with a 106.6-degree fever and hospitalized two weeks. . . .

Big Eight and Southwest Conference officials began talks in Oklahoma City on a possible alliance. . . . Pacific-10 athletic directors will discuss expansion this weekend in San Francisco. San Diego State of the WAC reportedly is interested.
