Cincinnati's Ford, Gardner departing early for NFL draft

CINCINNATI (AP) Cincinnati has lost two stars from its College Football Playoff team to the NFL draft.

The school announced Tuesday that junior cornerback Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner declared for the draft, one day after junior running back Jerome Ford said he would do the same.

The pair helped the Bearcats (13-1) become the first team from a conference outside the Power Five to crack the playoff. Cincinnati was seeded fourth and lost to No. 1 Alabama 27-6 in a semifinal game on Friday.
