Dunlap out of SEC title game after DUI charge

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Top-ranked Florida will be without one of its best pass rushers against No. 2 Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship game.

Defensive end Carlos Dunlap was arrested early Tuesday and charged with driving under the influence, just days before the biggest game of the season.

Coach Urban Meyer says Dunlap won't play Saturday, adding that there is no timetable for his return. Meyer says he is "stunned" by Dunlap's actions.

Dunlap, the defensive MVP of the Bowl Championship Series national title game in January, has started every game this season for the defending champs. He has 35 tackles and is tied for the team lead with seven sacks.
