If youre watching a college football game this weekend, go ahead and get comfortable.It could take a while.Major NCAA football games continue to last much longer than their NFL counterparts. The NCAAs statistics show the average FBS game has lasted 3 hours and 25 minutes through the first two weeks of the season, compared to a few minutes over 3 hours for the NFL, according to statistics supplied by the league.No. 23 Mississippi has already played two games that have topped four hours this season. The Rebels 45-34 loss to Florida State took 4:04 to complete while last weekends 48-43 loss to top-ranked Alabama lasted 4:02.In the sweat-soaked aftermath of the Ole Miss-Alabama game -- which was played on a day when the temperatures approached 90 degrees in Mississippi -- Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said that there were coaches and players who needed IVs.Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze acknowledged the Alabama game felt particularly long.Its definitely something that has to be looked at, Freeze said. Certainly for the fan experience. Both teams -- there were a lot of players cramping. It was a physical game.Ole Miss isnt the only team thats dealt with lengthy games. Troys 37-31 victory over Southern Mississippi last weekend took 4:12, while Californias thrilling 50-43 win over Texas lasted 3:56.The gap between NFL and NCAA game times has existed for years, but is slightly more pronounced so far this season.While fans might gripe about constant TV commercials and lengthy delays while officials review calls on instant replay, both the NFL and NCAA have to deal with those issues.Rogers Redding, the former national coordinator of officials who sits on the NCAAs football rules committee, says there are a few key differences in NCAA and NFL games that could lead to the NCAAs unique issues. Among them:- Halftime: A normal halftime in the NFL lasts 12 minutes -- though theres usually a delay as teams head to the locker rooms -- while the NCAAs usual break is 20 minutes. Halftime at both levels can be lengthened for certain situations, such as a special ceremony, but a college games halftime is almost always longer thanks to band performances and other pageantry.- Clock rules: The NFL and NCAA have slightly different clock rules, including after a team gains a first down. In the NFL, the clock continues to run after a first down while in the NCAA, there is a stoppage while the referee positions the ball and the chain crew on the sidelines readjusts its position.I do think theres some merit in doing what the NFL does on first downs, Freeze said.But overall, there isnt a huge push to shorten the college game. Redding said he didnt sense it was a pressing issue.So sit back, relax and grab some extra snacks. It doesnt look like college games are going to get shorter any time soon.I dont mean to sound flippant, but most fans make college football an all-day event anyway, Redding said. Theyre already in the stadium, so Im not sure if they care that much.-----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP . AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org .

Bills coach Doug Marrone made the announcement after practice Wednesday night. Kolb, who is competing with rookie EJ Manuel for the starting quarterback job, did not play in Buffalos first preseason game because of a left knee injury. Marrone said the decision was not a reflection of Manuel, who played well against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, and more about the competition at quarterback. "Kevin probably would have started the first game if he wasnt injured or hurt, and EJ would have come in and then EJ would have started this game," Marrone said. "But because of injury, obviously EJ started and Im going to get Kevin his start. You cant call it a competition and then all of the sudden not have the quarterbacks getting those starts." Kolb twisted his knee when he slipped on a wet rubber mat during practice. He signed witth the Bills after two injury-filled seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.dddddddddddd Kolb participated in team drills for the first time in over a week on Monday but took a big step forward Tuesday. On Tuesday, Kolb moved well in the pocket and did not appear to be hampered by the knee injury. "(Tuesday) was a big day for me," Kolb said. "I felt my feet get back underneath me and was able to push the ball down the field a couple of times and I was happy with it." Bills rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso will likely miss Fridays game as he makes his way back from a shoulder injury. Alonso has been cleared by doctors to return to the field but Marrone said he plans on resting him for a couple days. Wide receivers Stevie Johnson (hamstring) and Brad Smith (undisclosed) returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday night. The Bills are hoping that Johnson, Buffalos top receiver, will return on a full-time basis next week before the teams third preseason game.
