LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) – Iowa’s Brandon Scherff has won the Outland Trophy, given to the nation’s outstanding interior lineman. The offensive tackle was presented with the award Thursday night during the 24th College Football Awards Show at Disney World.

Scherff was selected over finalists Malcolm Brown of Texas and Reese Dismukes of Auburn.

Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald won the award in 2013.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Ally Disterhoft scored 16 points to lead Number 24 Iowa to a 76-67 win over rival Iowa State on Thursday night. Whitney Jennings added 15 points and Kali Peschel 13 on a career-best three 3-pointers for the Hawkeyes (8-2). Jadda Buckley scored 25 points for the Cyclones (5-2), who made only two field goals in the final 7½ minutes.

Iowa led for almost the entire game, but Iowa State stayed close until the final minute. Buckley’s 3-pointer with 54 seconds left cut Iowa’s lead to 71-67. But the Hawkeyes made 5 of 7 free throws and forced three turnovers to close out the game.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State star Bryce Dejean-Jones has been suspended for Friday’s game against rival Iowa after being arrested and charged with multiple misdemeanors. Ames police spokesman Geoff Huff said Dejean-Jones was arrested around 3 a.m. Thursday after officers were called to his apartment over a noise complaint. A charge of gathering where marijuana is used has been dropped but he still faces two misdemeanors: a nuisance party and noise ordinance violation.

Coach Fred Hoiberg said he decided to suspend Dejean-Jones for one game Friday’s game between the 14th-ranked Cyclones (6-1) and Iowa (8-2).

AMES, Iowa (AP) – A marijuana charge against Iowa State star Bryce Dejean-Jones has been dismissed by a judge, just hours after he was arrested and charged with multiple misdemeanors. Ames police spokesman Geoff Huff said Dejean-Jones was arrested around 3 a.m. Thursday after police were called to his apartment because of noise complaints. Officers executed a search warrant because they said they smelled and later found marijuana inside the residence.

Dejean-Jones was charged with gathering where marijuana is used, a serious misdemeanor, and two simple misdemeanors; a nuisance party regulation and a noise ordinance violation. Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes told The Associated Press the pot charge was dismissed by a judge in Dejean-Jones’s initial court appearance for a lack of probable cause. The two simple misdemeanors remain pending.

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State star Bryce Dejean-Jones has been arrested and charged with multiple misdemeanors after police were called to his apartment because of noise complaints. Ames police spokesman Geoff Huff says Dejean-Jones was arrested around 3 a.m. Thursday. He’s charged with gathering where marijuana is used, a serious misdemeanor, and two simple misdemeanors; a nuisance party regulation and a noise ordinance violation.

Huff says the marijuana charge is roughly the equivalent of a drunken-driving charge and that a fine and probation is more likely than jail time. Dejean-Jones is in his first season at Iowa State. He is averaging 17.1 points a game. He remained at the Story County Jail on Thursday morning on $1,600 bond. Detention officer Clark Blue says no attorney information for Dejean-Jones was available.

UPDATE – A judge in Story county ruled today that Ames police did not have probable cause for the arrest and dropped the charges.
