FOOTBALL: Baylor safety Travon Blanchard was suspended after the school was notified that a protective order had been issued against him. The athletic department said in a statement it was aware of the complaint made by a woman against Blanchard through the McLennan County District Attorney's Office. Baylor said it was notified on Feb. 7 and appropriate campus student-conduct process was initiated. Baylor is facing at least six federal and state lawsuits as well as a federal civil rights investigation into claims the school and football program ignored, mishandled or tried to cover up reports of sexual or physical abuse and other criminal misdeeds across campus for years under former coach Art Briles and former school president Kenneth Starr.
