- Time for "News on the Move" now. Another high-profile coronavirus case in sport. This time it's in college football. And it's Trevor Lawrence, quarterback for Clemson University. That means he will miss tomorrow's game against Boston University. And it's also possible that he'll miss Clemson's big match-up against Notre Dame, which is scheduled for November 7.

Clemson is ranked number one, Notre Dame number four, in college football. Lawrence is the first publicly known star college football player to miss time because of COVID-19. He's also considered the presumptive number one overall pick in next year's NFL draft.

ADAM SHAPIRO: In the words of big ol' Kristen Bell, guilty. David Correia, the business partner of Rudy Giuliani and his former associate, Lev Parnas, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and to making false statements to election officials about a donation made to group-supporting Donald Trump. Correia appeared yesterday in Manhattan federal court and confessed that he conspired with Parnas to defraud investors in their fraud protection business, which they called Fraud Guarantee. Rudy Giuliani, who is Trump's personal lawyer-- he reportedly received $500,000 to work on behalf of Fraud Guarantee.

JULIE HYMAN: Walmart has removed all guns and ammunition from its store shelves ahead of Tuesday's presidential election, quote, "out of an abundance of caution." It's a precaution the retail giant has taken before in case of civil unrest that triggers store break-ins. Walmart sells firearms in about half of its 4,700 US stores. Customers can still request to purchase the items. They just won't be displayed.
