STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – The NCAA asked a Pennsylvania court on Tuesday to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family of late coach Joe Paterno that seeks to overturn the sanctions against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.

Some trustees, ex-players and coaches and faculty members are also taking part in the same lawsuit, which the NCAA said was flawed.

The sanctions from 2012 included a four-year bowl ban, steep scholarship cuts and a $60 million fine.

Arizona cuts safety

TUCSON, Ariz. – Arizona sophomore safety Patrick Onwuasor has been dismissed from the team after being charged with four felonies, including three drug-related offenses.

Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez said Onwuasor, 20, “has been removed from the program.”

Tucson police reported finding narcotics, drug paraphernalia, marijuana and a weapon during a search of Onwuasor’s apartment.

Notes

• Defending Pac-12 champion Stanford has sold out of season tickets for the first time in program history. The school capped season tickets at a record 33,000 sold.

• The State Attorney’s Office dropped misdemeanor charges against Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison, who was arrested Sunday and charged with barking at a police dog and resisting arrest. Morrison was suspended for at least two games after the arrest.
