There is no timetable for disciplinary measures against Sammy Watkins, who was arrested last month and charged with possession of marijuana.

The dynamic receiver/kick returner could still have his record cleared, which is what coach Dabo Swinney may be waiting on. The determination would then be the extent of team-imposed discipline Watkins would still likely face. Watkins was the ACC's freshman of the year in 2011 after finishing fourth nationally with an average of 176 all-purpose yards per game.

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore QB Brandon Wimbush completed 9-of-19 passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 106 yards and two additional scores in Saturday's 49-14 throttling of USC.

Wimbush got things off to a roaring start for the Irish with two touchdown passes in the first quarter. Small-scale passing pyrotechnics out of the way, the redshirt sophomore would mostly do his damage as a runner the rest of the game. He would turn in rushing touchdowns in the second and third quarters as the Irish kept their foot on USC's throat. This was Wimbush's third game of 100 yards rushing on the year. Just how far Notre Dame can go with an essentially limited passing game remains to be seen, but we love what the Irish offer on the ground, we love the way their defense has played and they now stand as a legitimate Playoff contender. Their only loss this year was a one-point defeat at the hands of currently undefeated Georgia in early September.

Notre Dame junior RB Josh Adams rushed for 191 yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries in Saturday's 49-14 obliteration of USC.

Quite the statement game by the Irish in this one. Adams scored on a short run in the second quarter and another in the fourth, but it was his 84-yard scoring dash in the third quarter which will make the evening highlight reels. That gallop made the score 42-14 and essentially ended the game with a quarter still remaining on the clock. There's been low simmering Heisman talk surrounding Adams of late and that is probably going to reach a boil this week. For the campaign, the 6-foot-1, 212-pound junior has rushed for 967 yards and eight touchdowns in seven games while averaging over 9.0 YPC. Five of those contests have seen him rush for at least 100 yards.

Penn State redshirt junior QB Trace McSorley ran for three scores and 76 yards and passed for 282 yards and another score in a 42-13 route of Michigan on Saturday.

McSorley (6'0/195) struggled with accuracy in the first half, but really turned things on from the third quarter on, particularly with his legs. His three-yard score gave the Nittany Lions a 21-13 lead just before halftime, and his 13 and 9-yard scores in the second half all but put the Wolverines away. Even on a night where he didn't have his best accuracy, McSorley was able to make a difference. Ohio State comes next for he and Penn State.

Penn State junior RB Saquon Barkley ran for 108 yards and two scores on 15 carries, and caught three passes for 53 yards and a score in a 42-13 destruction of Michigan on Saturday.

Barkley started out red hot, going over 100 yards in the first quarter and scoring twice from 69 and 15 yards, respectfully. From that point, Barkley was relatively held in check, but the damage had been done. He checked in with a 42-yard score in the passing game in the fourth from Trace McSorley to make it 35-13 Nittany Lions early in the fourth. Once again, Barkley looked like one of -- maybe even the -- best players in college football. Penn State has a must-see matchup next week against Ohio State.
Oct 21 - 11:03 PM

Kansas State redshirt sophomore Alex Delton completed 12-of-14 passes for 144 yards and a score, and ran 27 times for 142 yards and three scores in a 42-35 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday.

Delton (6'0/195) was starting in place of Jesse Ertz at quarterback, but you'd never know Delton was the backup watching him play on Saturday. Some of that had to do with Oklahoma's defense being not-so-great, but Delton was able to run past and through the Oklahoma front seven, and while he didn't throw the ball deep often, he was accurate and kept the chains moving. Delton will be behind center again for the Wildcats next week against the awful Kansas defense.
Oct 21 - 8:22 PM

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield completed 32-of-41 passes for 410 yards with a two touchdowns and interception, and ran for 69 yards and two scores in a thrilling 42-35 victory over Kansas State on Saturday.

This was a doozy of a football game. Mayfield and the Oklahoma offense struggled in the first-half, but were up to the task in the second against the Wildcats. He impressed with his legs, scoring from 16 and three yards out, respectfully. Even in a struggle in the first half, the 6-foot, 220-pound signal-caller showed his accuracy and ability to improvise. Expect another shootout for the Sooners and Mayfield next week against Texas Tech.
Oct 21 - 8:13 PM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier completed 26-of-43 passes for 344 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 27-19 victory over Syracuse.

Rosier and the Hurricanes have made this down-to-the-wire win thing old hat. After knocking off Florida State and Georgia Tech the past two weeks on last-second plays, they held off a late charge by Syracuse to remain undefeated today. Miami (6-0, 4-0 ACC), sitting atop the ACC Coastal Division, has now won 11 straight games going back to last year. The Hurricanes travel to Chapel Hill next week to take on a bad North Carolina team. Two landmines remain on the schedule: Virginia Tech and Notre Dame. Luckily, both games are in Coral Gables.
Oct 21 - 7:52 PM

SMU redshirt junior Trey Quinn caught 17 passes for 186 yards in Saturday's 31-28 overtime win over Cincinnati.

Quinn has been flat-out brilliant this season, especially of late. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt junior has now logged at least 15 catches in each of his last three games. He's also surpassed 100 yards receiving in four of his last five games. Overall, Quinn is the owner of an immaculate 71-773-5 receiving line. Tulsa will attempt to slow him down next weekend.
Oct 21 - 7:52 PM

Mississippi State redshirt junior Nick Fitzgerald went 18-of-26 passing for 155 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 115 yards and two more scores in a dominating 45-7 win over Kentucky on Saturday.

Fitzgerald (6'5/230) has rushed for over 100 yards three times this year. The frame and athleticism are outstanding. NFL evaluators will continue to ponder whether he can be developed in the pocket. Fitzgerald's passing stats remain ho-hum, with a 54.9-percent completion percentage and 6.32 YPA coming into today. His 11/7 TD/INT rate is fine, but nothing special. As Lance Zierlein wrote last month: "He's big and fast, but I'm still not sold on him as a passer, and there are other evaluators who are still in wait-and-see mode with me as it pertains to his draft stock."
Oct 21 - 7:27 PM

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott rushed for 87 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in Saturday's 17-9 win over Indiana.

Scott did not start the contest as punishment for his being arrested for driving on a suspended license for the seventh time on Wednesday. He has a valid license, now, and after he rode the pine at the beginning of the contest, he went on to take on his typical workload. His touchdown came on a patient 18-yard run to the right in the fourth quarter, one which gave Michigan State a 17-9 lead with under two minutes remaining. Scott has largely disappointed this season outside of a 194-yard performance against Minnesota last weekend, but will try to finish up strong as he heads toward a potential draft declaration this winter.
Oct 21 - 7:27 PM

UCF sophomore RB Adrian Killins rushed for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 15 carries in Saturday's 31-21 win over Navy.

Much of Killins' damage came courtesy of a 79-yard touchdown sprint in the third quarter, a score that broke a 14-14 tie. A home run threat waiting to happen, Killins is averaging nine yards a carry. He's surpassed 100 yards in three of the last five games.
