Wisconsin senior RB Montee Ball went off on the Purdue defense Saturday, rushing for 247 yards on 29 carries including three touchdowns.

Ball's career total for touchdowns now stands at 72, a conference record. This was the game Badger fans had been waiting for from the senior back, who had struggled throughout the year with less than a four yards per carry average. The Wisconsin offensive line was able to push around the Purdue defense all game.

ESPN's Jake Trotter reports that West Virginia redshirt senior QB Will Grier (finger) has been medically cleared to begin throwing.

Grier underwent surgery to repair a broken middle metacarpal in his right (throwing) hand in November and subsequently missed the regular-season finale, plus WVU's bowl loss to Utah. His recovery is worth monitoring over the coming weeks -- just how available he'll be for the start of spring practice is an open question -- but that he has already been cleared for throwing work is an encouraging sign. Barring setback, he will almost certainly be fully recovered from the broken finger when West Virginia takes on Tennessee to kick off the 2018 season come Sep. 1. Grier threw for 3,490 yards with a 34/12 TD/INT ratio during his injury-curtailed 2017 campaign.

Ohio State promoted co-OC/QB coach Ryan Day to offensive coordinator.

Day was being courted by the Tennessee Titans as a potential offensive coordinator for new HC Mike Vrabel, but ultimately opted to stay with the Buckeyes. He receives a promotion after that minor bit of commotion, though that promotion is not without its oddity. While Day was named offensive coordinator, current OSU OC Kevin Wilson has not been demoted from his post, with the press release merely saying that Day would continue to work with Wilson in honing the offense. We'll have to wait until team activities boot up in the spring to see what a presumably expanded role for Day alongside Wilson might look like.

An NFL GM told Walter Football's Charlie Campbell that he believes that Wyoming QB Josh Allen "could explode as a prospect at the combine."

"That general manager thinks that Allen is going to have a tremendous performance, showing off his powerful arm, athleticism and size," Campbell writes. He additionally passes along that a different NFL GM whom he spoke with is particularly keen on getting Allen into the interview process at the combine, in order to probe his leadership mindset. We've heard repeated strong reviews of Allen's mental makeup and expect him to play up well when speaking with NFL teams. At the Senior Bowl this week, the potential top-10 selection measured in at 6-foot-4, 237 pounds. His work in practice leading up to the game figures to play a real part in his draft evaluation. Chad Reuter of NFL.com believes that no player has more to prove in this setting than Allen.

Maryland is expected to hire former LSU OC Matt Canada as offensive coordinator.

Strong hire here by DJ Durkin. Canada's only LSU offense finished No. 54, but to be fair he inherited a mediocre quarterback and had to deal with offensive meddling from HC Ed Orgeron. Canada and Coach O agreed after the season that parting ways was the best for both parties. LSU's loss is Maryland's gain. Only one year ago, Canada was considered one of college football's best offensive minds. He was a 2016 Broyles Award finalist as offensive coordinator at Pittsburgh. Prior to that, Canada was the OC at NC State (2013-15), Wisconsin (2012), Northern Illinois (2011), Indiana (2007-10), Northern Illinois (2003) and Butler (1997).

Hawaii senior QB Dru Brown will transfer.

The news comes out of nowhere. Brown (6'0/200), formerly Hawaii's starting quarterback, completed 254-of-412 for 2,785 yards and an 18/8 TD/INT rate this past season. After winning a bowl game following the 2016 season, the Rainbow Warriors sagged to 3-9 last year. Hawaii intends to return to the run-and-shoot offense it utilized to great success in the early 2000's. It's possible Brown was told he wasn't seen as a fit for the change in direction. We haven't been apprised if Brown was able to graduate in three years. If he was, he'll be eligible to play immediately wherever he winds up. If he hasn't yet graduated, transferring to another FBS school would result in being forced to sit the 2018 season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ohio State co-OC/QB coach Ryan Day is expected to remain with the Buckeyes after speaking with the Tennessee Titans about their OC job.

According to reports, Mike Vrabel offered Day the keys to the Tennessee Titans offense. Instead, Day will apparently stay with Urban Meyer. Day's first order of 2018 business? Find a quarterback. Dwayne Haskins, Joe Burrow and Tate Martell are the candidates to replace JT Barrett, with Haskins the big early favorite.

Washington State HC Mike Leach told reporters that deceased QB Tyler Hilinski showed no obvious signs of depression leading up to Hilinski's suicide last Tuesday.

"Everyone has some dark space that they work through, I'm sure, but no one really saw anything like that," Leach said. "He didn't have signs of depression. He didn't have periods where he was moping around or anything like that. He was honestly a very steady guy. Kind of guy who would lift up others when they were down." According to Leach, Hilinski had even texted teammates to schedule a throwing session on Tuesday afternoon. On that afternoon, police arrived at Hilinski's apartment at the request of a Wazzu staffer, who had been called after Hilinski didn't show at practice or respond to messages. Hilinski was found dead with a rifle and a handwritten suicide note. He had been expected to take over as Wazzu's starting quarterback in 2018. Tyler Hilinski was 21.

Former Oklahoma junior RB Abdul Adams transferred to Syracuse.

Dino Babers strikes again on the free-agent transfer market. First, he snagged former four-star Michigan State receiver Trishton Jackson last week, and now he's landed Adams, another former four-star recruit who immediately becomes the most talented back Babers has had in New York. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Adams rushed for 542 yards with two total touchdowns on an eye-popping 9.2 yards per carry last year. Oklahoma minimized his role in the offense as the season went on due to Adams' ball-security issues and the emergence of Rodney Anderson. Adams, who must sit out next season to satisfy transfer rules, will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2019. He should become Syracuse's RB1 the second he's eligible. His speed and shiftiness could lead to huge numbers in this explosive offense.

Chris Low of ESPN reports that TE coach/ST coordinator Shane Beamer is leaving Georgia for Oklahoma.

Beamer is the son of former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer and has been on the Georgia staff since 2016. His exact title isn't specified, but Low reports that Beamer will assist Sooners coach Lincoln Riley in offensive gameplans. Beamer is seen by many as a rising star in the industry, and could be a head-coaching candidate in the coming years.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is one of seven finalists for the Lombardi Award.

The other six finalists with Mayfield are Saquon Barkley, Penn State (RB; Minkah Fitzpatrick, Alabama (S); Shaquem Griffin, UCF (LB); Lamar Jackson Louisville (QB); Joel Lanning, Iowa State (LB/QB); and Bryce Love, Stanford (RB).

Stanford redshirt senior QB Keller Chryst will transfer as a graduate.

Chryst (6'5/236) began the 2017 season as starter for the Cardinal, but failed to spark the offense to any real degree -- four of his seven starts saw him throw for one or no touchdown passes -- before being supplanted by K.J. Costello in the middle of the campaign. Costello, entering his redshirt sophomore year in 2018, should have the starting job in Palo Alto on lock-down, making this a logical transfer by Chryst. As for where he might land for his final season of eligibility, USA Today's Dan Wolken forwards that Tennessee could be a program to watch.
