Ex-Auburn sophomore DB Jonathan Rose could land at Nebraska and should make a decision in the next few days, according to his father.

"[H]is chances of going to Nebraska are pretty good," said Rose's father, who refused to discuss other potential landing spots. He also added that the Cornhuserks' defensive backs coach Terry Joseph, who recruited Rose as an assistant at Tennessee, enhances the school's chances. Auburn head coach Gene Chizik informed the sophomore that he was not allowed to return to the team for undisclosed reasons just over a week ago. Rose will have to sit out the 2012 season regardless due to NCAA regulations.

SEC Country's Eric Boland reports that Arkansas sophomore RB Devwah Whaley got into a fight with a teammate.

When news of the fight surfaced, there were initial rumors that Whaley had sustained a broken jaw in the altercation. Boland is hearing from multiple sources that that is not the case, though. Whaley has since tweeted that he's "set to travel" with the team for their showdown with Texas A&M on Saturday. Arkansas has yet to comment on all this ugliness and it's possible that Whaley travels to Arlington but does not play in the game. If he sits, expect David Williams and Chase Hayden to receive the bulk of carries. This is a developing story and we'll pass along updates as they become available. Stay tuned.

Nebraska fired AD Shawn Eichorst.

"Our fans and our student-athletes deserve leadership that drives the highest levels of competitiveness, as well as excellence across all facets of Husker athletics," said Nebraska chancellor Ronnie Green. Eichorst was initially hired as athletic director in October of 2013. He will be paid the remaining $1.7 million on his contract, which had been set to run through June of 2019. His firing is effective immediately. Nebraska has slogged out to a 1-2 record to start the season, with the nail in Eichorst's coffin coming after the Huskers lost to Northern Illinois in listless fashion last Saturday.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Mississippi State.

Eason managed to take part in practice to a limited degree this week -- he has been throwing -- but the Bulldogs are going to let him rest up for at least one more week before they consider throwing him back into a game. Jake Fromm will once again start in his place on Saturday.

ESPN's Todd McShay writes there is "a lot of buzz surrounding" Mississippi State redshirt junior T Martinas Rankin.

"He has the length to handle speed off the edge and the athletic ability to mirror inside pass-rushing moves," McShay explained, adding that Rankin has pivotal matchups against Georgia and Auburn coming up in order to prove his game against top-end pass rushers. Rankin has spent less than two seasons at the FBS level, but that did not stop players like Ryan Ramczyk and Garett Bolles from landing in the first round last season. As Miss State continues to win, more focus will be on their offensive line.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen spoke to one NFL GM who believes if Wyoming QB Josh Allen played for USC, Clemson or Oklahoma, "they'd all be talking like there hasn't been a better passer in years."

Stunning. The anonymous general manager says his only concern about Allen is possible injury due to being too competitive with a lack of talent around him this season. "Enough teams will work past the garbage you'll hear," the general manager said via Mortensen. The decision maker went on to say there is "no comparison" with his size, arm, skill set, mobility, good mind and competitiveness. It is absolutely amazing that this general manager does not even touch on Allen's ability, or inability, to handle a pass rush, since it is the great differentiator at the position.

Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel spoke to one scout who believes Penn State junior RB Saquon Barkley is better than Ezekiel Elliott.

The scout obviously remains anonymous. "Saquon Barkley is a different guy with an extra gear. He’ll never get caught from behind. Zeke doesn’t get caught often, but he can," the scout told Thamel. We understand wanting to compare Barkley to the top running back prospect in recent memory, but in the end Barkley will also be selected very early in the draft, likely in the top 10, so does it even matter? Barkley is an outstanding talent. So is Elliott. Our biggest question is if Barkley can pass protect like Elliott could out of Ohio State.

LSU junior RB Derrius Guice (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Syracuse.

Early in the practice week, LSU HC Ed Orgeron termed Guice's injury as "minor." That would appear to have been either a hopeful statement or a coy statement, as Guice did not practice on either Tuesday or Wednesday and has now officially been nixed for Saturday's showdown with the Orange. Darrel Williams will start in his place on Saturday now that the star junior back has been ruled out. There is no current timetable for Guice's return to action.

New Mexico senior QB Lamar Jordan (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Tulsa.

Jordan (6'0/190) took a scary late hit in the first half of Thursday's loss to Boise State, as he was driven into the turf on the play in question and looked obviously wobbly when walking off the field. Third-stringer Coltin Gerhart took over for him to finish out that loss (second-string QB Tevaka Tuioti is also dealing with a concussion). Gerhart will again start against Tulsa on Saturday. There is no current timetable for Jordan's return.

Utah redshirt senior WR Darren Carrington compared sophomore QB Tyler Huntley to former Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.

"He’s not up there yet, but he reminds me of Marcus a lot, how he can throw off the run and throw off his back foot 70 yards and make people miss. He’s just a ballplayer," said Carrington, who played with Mariota back in 2014, during the quarterback's Heisman Trophy-winning season. In three games this season, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Huntley has thrown for 868 yards (72.1% completions, 7.8 YPA) with a 5/2 TD/INT ratio. The sophomore gunslinger has also rushed for 212 yards and three additional scores. To give some context, those three contests came against North Dakota, BYU and San Jose State. He should have a relatively easy time with Arizona on Friday, too, before the schedule tightens up with back-to-back contests against Stanford and USC.

Oklahoma president David Boren will retire at the end of the 2017-2018 academic year.

Boren has been among the most vocal school presidents on the college football landscape. He will be officially retiring on June 30, assuming that Oklahoma has settled on a new president by then (if not, he will stay on until they find a replacement). Boren has served as school president since 1994.

Boise State junior QB Brett Rypien (head) is probable for Friday's game against Virginia.

Rypien was injured in a Week 2 loss to Washington State and subsequently sat out a Week 3 win over New Mexico last Thursday. With a clean practice week to date, he has now been medically cleared to tango with the Cavaliers on Friday. Both Rypien and Montell Cozart are expected to play against Virginia, but Rypien will be the man taking the bulk of snaps.
