South Carolina junior RB Marcus Lattimore was held in check by the LSU defense on Saturday, rushing for only 35 yards and one touchdown on 13 carries.

He also added four receptions for 23 yards and Lattimore's longest run went for nine yards. The LSU defense was loading the box and covering the run, forcing Connor Shaw to leave the pocket or attempt to find receivers downfield. Lattimore works best in a one cut running system, but LSU remained gap sound and slanted down the line very well.

Florida sophomore WR Antonio Callaway (suspension) has been cleared to play for the season-opener against UMass.

As of last week, HC Jim McElwain wasn't making any promises on Callaway's playing status for Week 1. The 5-foot-11, 198-pounder has been serving out an indefinite suspension stemming from an allegation of sexual assault in December. Callaway was cleared of those charges earlier this summer and has been practicing with the team this month. Now officially back on board, he makes for the most palatable fantasy target on Florida. As a freshman last season, Callaway caught 35 passes for 678 yards (19.4 yards per reception) and four touchdowns.

There will be no carry-restriction on Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb (knee) in the season-opener against North Carolina.

"We feel good about Nick. He won’t be on a pitch count by any means," said HC Kirby Smart, who added that "he’s scrimmaged, and done live things, and been hit." The 5-foot-10, 228-pounder initially suffered a severe knee injury against Tennessee last October. In just five-plus games in 2015, he rushed for 747 yards (8.1 YPC) and seven touchdowns. He actually has never had a full season all his own as starter. He backed Todd Gurley until Gurley went down with a knee injury of in 2014. Chubb finished that season having rushed for 1,547 yards (7.1 YPC) and 14 touchdowns. 2016 should give us prime Chubb. He is an upper-tier fantasy back, particularly now that he has been cleared medically.

Juan Caballero, the owner for South Beach Exotic Rentals, said that the company never offered improper use of vehicles to dismissed Miami redshirt junior DE Al-Quadin Muhammad and senior LB Jermaine Grace.

In a statement provided to the Miami Herald, Caballero not only denied improperly offering the pair of Hurricanes vehicles, he actually provides details as to each player in this situation. He told the Herald that Muhammad's cousin rented the vehicle that Muhammad was spotted in after a game last season, "as [the cousin has] for many years." As for Grace, Caballero said that his uncle rented him a vehicle. Both players were dismissed over the weekend due to perceived violations of NCAA regulations regarding improper benefits. Caballero said that "there has never been a single incident where a player has received preferential treatment or anything of value for free."

Kansas State redshirt sophomore QB Jesse Ertz was named the starter for the 2016 season.

Ertz opened as starter last year, too, but was waylaid by a knee injury during the first series of the season-opener. He has regained full health on that front and beat out redshirt freshman Alex Delton and senior QB Joe Hubener during August camp. From Bill Snyder's comments, this wasn't a particularly close competition. "In all reality, he's been more consistent than the other two," Snyder said. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder will have a tall task on his hands in the opener against Stanford. There isn't enough offensive firepower around him to recommend Ertz as a true fantasy prospect.

Texas HC Charlie Strong will not announce the starting quarterback until the Sunday of their season-opening tilt with Notre Dame.

Unless Strong is planning on shocking the world by announcing Tyrone Swoopes as the starter, all of this cloak-and-dagger maneuvering is a bit much. For months, signs have pointed toward freshman QB Shane Buechele starting against Notre Dame. Strong even hinted as much back in July, saying that the starter would be "young," which would not apply to the senior Swoopes. Beyond that, though, Strong is entering a potential make-or-break year and Buechele not only offers an option with untapped upside, he also offers something to sell to the fan base and boosters. That is not a minor thing. One more note on this competition -- Strong said at the beginning of August that he hoped to name a starter early in camp. That he hasn't yet could just be a change of plans, but perhaps the issue of Buechele v Swoopes wasn't quite as settled as it seemed to be from outward reports. Sunday shall tell the tale.

Ohio State redshirt freshman WR Torrance Gibson has been suspended for the 2016 season due to a violation of the student code of conduct.

While football program and university tend to at least outwardly see eye-to-eye on most suspensions, thus is not the case with Gibson's. HC Urban Meyer is at odds with the decision, saying, "It was not from the football program or the athletic department. I disagree with it." No word as of yet as to what the 6-foot-4, 195-pounder might have done to incur the wrath of the university. Gibson -- a former quarterback who is converting to wide receiver -- drew praise this summer for his pure athleticism. Meyer said during the offseason that he "[doesn't] see a ceiling." While Gibson wasn't likely to put up monster stats immediately simply due to his rawness at the position, his suspension swipes an athletic chess piece off the Buckeye board.

Mississippi State senior DT Nick James was arrested early on Sunday morning.

Oktibbeha County chief deputy Chadd Garnett has confirmed with The Clarion-Ledger that James was arrested, but declined to offer further details. Mississippi State is aware of the incident and is in the process of gathering more information. One report from the Starkville Daily News has the 6-foot-4, 330-pounder being arrested for public intoxication, but that has yet to be confirmed by the authorities. Regardless of the circumstance, this is the fourth time that James has been arrested in his three-plus years with the Bulldogs. James, a former four-star recruit, was a 10-game starter in 2015 and recorded 26 tackles and a forced fumble.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart indicated that junior RB Sony Michel (arm) could be a game-time decision for the season-opener against North Carolina next Saturday.

"I’ve got great confidence in Sony, and Sony’s worked really hard to get in shape. So the reports not being favorable, I don’t know if that’s accurate," Smart said on the Paul Finebaum Show. "The kid’s out there doing everything that he’s been cleared to do, it’s just that he hasn’t been cleared to do everything." Michel fractured his arm in an ATV mishap over the Fourth of July weekend. If Georgia can keep Michel and Nick Chubb (knee) healthy, they will be boasting one of the better running games in the country this coming season.

Dawg Nation's Seth Emerson relays that Georgia freshman QB Jacob Eason is in line to start against North Carolina on September 3.

Per Emerson, Eason has been taking the majority of first-team snaps over the past week. Emerson writes that "[i]ndications prior to the scrimmage [on Saturday] were the job was Eason’s to lose," though he does note the possibility that Greyson Lambert could start against UNC with Eason coming off the bench. HC Kirby Smart could settle the issue during his Monday presser, assuming he actually wants to publicly settle the issue. Just to rehash the 6-foot-5, 207-pound Eason's pedigree, the true freshman ranked as Rivals' No. 7 overall prospect for 2017.

Oregon senior DE Torrodney Prevot has been suspended indefinitely due to his being investigated for a criminal offense.

According to The Emerald -- Oregon's student newspaper -- a former student has filed a complaint with the police alleging that she was assaulted twice by Prevot this year. This case would explain why the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder was not listed on the depth chart released on Friday. Last season, he recorded 48 tackles (7.5 for loss), 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

FSU named redshirt freshman QB Deondre Francois the starter for their Week 1 showdown with Ole Miss.

Francois was already a lock to start in that marquee Monday matchup after Sean Maguire broke his foot earlier this month. This makes it official. The 6-foot, 191-pounder ranked as the 247Sports composite's No. 64 overall prospect (No. 3 pro-style quarterback) in the country for 2015. Maguire practiced on Friday and should be able to return at some point in mid-September, but Francois is the fantasy play here by a country mile.
