Bobby Petrino will be announced as Western Kentucky's next head coach later this afternoon.

Obviously Petrino is known for his offensive background at Louisville, the Atlanta Falcons, and at Arkansas. The Hilltoppers are graduating their top quarterback in senior Kawaun Jakes, but a talented defense led by junior inside linebacker Andrew Jackson helped Western Kentucky reach a 7-5 record in 2012.

At the ACC Football Kickoff, Louisville HC Bobby Petrino said, "We have a goal to win a national championship and I’ve made sure our players understand that."

"We’ve got Clemson and Florida State just in our division, two teams that have been to the national championship game," Petrino said. "We know it’s a great challenge, but it’s one we’re certainly looking forward to." The Cardinals have played both teams tough over the last two seasons, losing a pair of one-possession contests to Clemson and leading at the half twice (before falling twice) against FSU. Sophomore QB Lamar Jackson believes Louisville will surprise with its maturation. "Last year we were a young team," he said. "This year is a whole other story. We’ve been hitting the books hard."

Iowa redshirt senior DL Faith Ekakitie was mistaken for a bank robber by police while playing Pokemon Go in the park.

Ekakitie took to Facebook to tell the tale. He was playing Pokemon Go in the park on Wednesday when, according to the lineman, he was stopped by five police officers, several of whom drew their weapons. "My pockets were checked, my backpack was opened up and searched carefully, and I was asked to lift up my shirt while they searched my waistband," he wrote on Facebook. Iowa City Police Department sergeant Jorey Bailey informed ESPN that Ekakitie was initially stopped because he matched the description of a man who had just robbed a local bank. "I am not one to usually rant on Facebook or anywhere else, but with all of the crazy things that have been happening in our world these past couple of weeks it is hard to stay silent," Ekakitie wrote. "I am thankful to be alive."

Georgia Southern has vacated three wins from the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

The Eagles are erasing these wins off the face of the earth due to a two-year NCAA investigation which revealed that the program played an ineligible student-athlete in three separate victories -- against Savannah State and St. Francis in 2013 and Louisiana-Monroe in 2014. While it is disappointing to vacate these three victories, we get to put this chapter behind us," said Georgia Southern ADTom Kleinlein. "The student-athletes on this year's football team, and teams moving forward, are not affected by the NCAA's ruling and our goals are still in front of us."

Ohio State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 CB Amir Riep.

Michigan State and Alabama were technically in the mix for Riep's commitment, too, but Ohio State was considered the front-runner to nab the Cincinnati native's pledge. They did not drop the ball. The 6-foot, 180-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 236 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle, but Scout.com is considerably higher on him, placing him into their rankings at No. 91. They like his instincts and anticipation, noting that Riep "[d]oes a good job of using the sideline as an extra defender."

Alabama received a verbal commitment from 2017 JUCO CB Jhavonte Dean.

Tip of the cap to SEC Country's Chris Kirschner for this news. At least somewhat surprisingly, Dean is Alabama's first corner commitment in the 2017 class. They are also nipping at the heels of stud Ohio State corner commit Shaun Wade, but if they are to flip Wade, that likely won't come for a while. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Dean ranks as 247Sports' No. 1 overall JUCO corner prospect in the 2017 class. He is a speedster and has run the 40-yard dash in the low-to-mid 4.30's during athletic testing this offseason.

Louisville HC Bobby Petrino said that sophomore QB Lamar Jackson is "going to be the face of our program for a while."

Petrino brought Jackson to the ACC Football Kickoff media event because he thinks his young quarterback is ready to handle the spotlight. A year ago, the 6-foot-3, 196-pounder felt uncomfortable during interviews, but he said that "[i]t's OK now." He also spoke to increased expectations. "Last year we were trying to show everyone we were a young team, that we could go out there and play," Jackson said. "This year is a whole 'nother story. More mature, older now." A Power 5 coach told ESPN earlier this offseason that Jackson is primed to "blow up this year."

FSU junior RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) indicated that he feels like he has returned to full health.

"I'm very ready, very confident. I'm just excited about this season, going into it a healthy Dalvin," Cook said at the ACC Football Kickoff on Friday. He underwent shoulder surgery at the beginning of April to shore up an offseason ailment. Injuries are just about the only thing that seems to be able to slow down the 6-foot, 200-pounder. He dealt with hamstring issues at times during the 2015 campaign but still managed to rush for 1,691 yards (7.4 YPC) and 19 touchdowns in 12 games.

Michigan State hired former Lions executive Sheldon White to serve as a program consultant.

White had served the Lions faithfully in a variety of capacities -- including interim general manager and vice president of pro personnel -- for the past 19 years, but was let go this offseason. In a statement, he said, "Michigan State has a great program and I’m looking forward to joining in and giving whatever insight I can provide. Anywhere I can help out and wherever Coach Dantonio needs me to go, that’s where I’ll be."

BYU formally notified the Big 12 that it is interested in joining the conference.

While BYU would be open to potentially discussing a football-only agreement with the Big 12, AD Tom Holmoe told ESPN that the school's preference would be to become a full member of the conference. "We're obviously open to listening to what they want to do. We're going to go through this process with an open mind to listen to what they have to say," Holmoe said. He believes his university is in a strong position, here, noting that "[t]he criteria they list fit us well." In an anonymous ESPN poll of Big 12 coaches regarding expansion preferences, BYU and Houston were tagged as the most desirable programs.

Louisville senior LB Trevon Young (hip) will take a medical redshirt for the 2016 season.

"[Young] was really stressing out about trying to come back for this season," HC Bobby Petrino told 93.9 The Ville, "and he just got to a point where he didn't better for a while. So I think it's been a relief to him to know that he's redshirting." The 6-foot-4, 229-pounder is recovering from a debilitating hip fracture and dislocation suffered against Texas A&M during December's Music City Bowl. He subsequently underwent surgery. Last season, Young recorded 32 tackles (10 for loss), 8.5 sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 LB Jacob Phillips will take official visits to Oregon, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Alabama and LSU.

Phillips will take an official visit to Oregon when they host UC-Davis on September 3, Oklahoma when they host ULM on September 10, Notre Dame when they host Michigan State on September 17, Alabama when they host Kent State on September 24 and LSU when they host Missouri on October 1. Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack notes that the Sooners should be considered the front-runner for the 6-foot-3, 231-pounder's commitment at this juncture. Oregon is the only school in that bunch not to receive an unofficial visit. Wommack colleague Nick Krueger noted early in the summer that Phillips' "competitive nature combined with his size" helped turn him into a favorite of coaches during the offseason camp circuit.
