USC senior QB Matt Barkley has only completed 3-of-15 passes thrown 20 or more yards downfield this season.

This includes missing all eight targets in the past two games. Barkley's placement and touch are excellent, but so much of the Trojans offense is predicated on short swing and screen passes that, coupled with his lack of velocity, displays is lack of downfield playmaking ability.

Minnesota redshirt sophomore QB Demry Croft will start Saturday against Illinois.

He replaces senior Conor Rhoda, who was always a low-ceiling stopgap. With Rhoda struggling mightily against Michigan State last week, the coaching staff inserted Croft in the second quarter and the Gophers offense rallied in what became a close loss. Croft went 8-for-14 for 131 yards and three total scores in that one. He provides a dual-threat element that Rhoda lacks. The Gophers (3-3, 0-3 Big Ten) get Illinois (2-4, 0-3) later this afternoon.

Louisville junior CB Jaire Alexander (knee) will not play Saturday against FSU.

The preseason All-American cornerback "suffered a setback," according to a release from the school. This will be the fifth game he's missed with a knee injury. Alexander suffered the injury in the opener against Purdue. He returned in a limited capacity at NC State on Oct. 5 and was a full participant last week against Boston College.

Texas sophomore RB Kyle Porter (chest) is out for Saturday's game against Oklahoma State.

As expected. Porter dressed this morning, hoping to give it a go, but that didn't come to pass. Chris Warren remains the starter.

Iowa redshirt junior S Brandon Snyder (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Northwestern.

According to beat writer Marc Morehouse, Snyder suffered a knee sprain and "might be out a few weeks." Josey Jewell was also ruled out for Saturday's game.

Iowa senior LB Josey Jewell (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Northwestern.

The middle linebacker was injured two weeks ago against Illinois and had a bye to rest last weekend. Everything was appearing to go to plan when Jewell said on Tuesday: "It’s good. Everything’s good. Playing on Saturday is going to be awesome." Apparently the rest of the week didn't go as planned. His absence is devastating for Iowa, as Jewell is one of the best defensive players in the nation, a talent Northwestern HC Pat Fitzgerald referred to as a "generational linebacker" earlier this week. In his absence, Ben Niemann will start at middle linebacker.

Following Friday's loss to Marshall, Middle Tennessee HC Rick Stockstill said that junior WR Richie James (shoulder) will "probably be on the shelf for a good amount of time."

James injured his shoulder in the third quarter of Friday's loss. The exact nature of that injury concern is not yet known, but Stockstill's pessimistic reaction after the game is a sign that this could be a significant issue -- perhaps even one that threatens James' availability for the remainder of the season. We'll pass along further word as information becomes available. Middle Tennessee has a bye week upcoming.

Western Kentucky redshirt junior QB Mike White completed 24-of-34 passes for 304 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 35-31 win over Old Dominion.

White fired off three touchdown passes in the first half and notched another two in the fourth quarter, including a go-ahead 30-yard scoring toss to Quin Jernighan with 7:49 remaining in the contest to give the Hilltoppers their final margin of victory. After managing just two touchdown passes through the first five games of the campaign, White has exploded for five scoring tosses in each of Western Kentucky's last two contests. He'll look to stay scalding hot against FAU next weekend.

Old Dominion senior RB Ray Lawry rushed for 166 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries in Friday's 35-31 loss to Western Kentucky.

Lawry missed four games with a severe hamstring injury before returning to action to rush for 40 yards against Marshall last weekend. That throat-clearing out of the way, the 5-foot-10, 204-pounder absolutely dominated in Friday's narrow loss to the Hilltoppers, scoring from one yard out midway through the first quarter and then adding touchdown bursts of 14 and 46 yards in the third quarter. Lawry rushed for 1,255 yards and 11 touchdowns a year ago and is more than capable of turning in a big second-half push moving forward so long as he can stay off the injury report.

Michigan received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 TE Mustapha Muhammad.

Muhammad (6'5/225) was also considering UCLA, Clemson, LSU and Texas. He is the second tight end to join Michigan's 2018 class. 247Sports' Greg Powers compares the Missouri City, Texas, native to Jermaine Gresham at this stage of development and notes that Muhammad "has long arms and big hands to help him make the tough catches." On the 247Sports' composite, the tight end ranks as the No. 109 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

South Alabama senior RB Xavier Johnson (ankle) is expected to be able to play in Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe.

"He's practiced the last couple of days, so actually he looks almost 100 percent. He looked really good this week," said Jaguars HC Joey Jones. Johnson (5'11/190) sprained his ankle in a win over Troy a week ago Wednesday. The senior is just 13 yards shy of setting the school-record for career rushing yards. He's currently sitting on 2,574, with 349 of those coming this season.

Florida received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 verbal T commit Richard Gouraige.

Gouraige (6'5/250) opted for the Gators over fellow finalist Clemson. He ranks as Rivals' No. 101 prospect in the 2018 class. The Tampa native offers the flexibility and frame of a likely future left tackle, but will need to continue to hone his strength and physicality once he heads down to Gainesville.
