Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Scott Loeffler called Nick Saban's defense "more complex than any college defense in the country."

Saban is known for installing a very physical defense that attacks from multiple alignments and angles. Last season was a down year in terms of pass rushing, but expect Saban to implement different packages to fix the issue. We consider junior safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, senior inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, and redshirt junior Adrian Hubbard as the school's top defenders.

Montana redshirt junior QB Brady Gustafson completed 30 of 55 attempts for 434 yards and a touchdown in the school's 38-35 upset of North Dakota State.

It was a heck of a debut for Gustafson and head coach Bob Stitt, who deployed unique personnel, formations, combinations and spacing in his first game as head coach of a FCS program. WVU's Dana Holgorsen has previously praised Stitt, and admittedly learned from him, but Gustafson was the one who directed the machine. The redshirt junior had barely played in previous seasons and flashed great promise in the opening game of the 2015 season.

Six of TCU senior WR Josh Doctson's eight red zone receptions ended in touchdowns during the 2014 season, according to CFB Film Room.

Doctson caught 20 total touchdowns last season on 63 grabs with no drops. He and quarterback Trevone Boykin have excellent chemistry and play off each other's strengths. Doctson, however, has dealt with offseason injuries, including a broken hand during the spring and an undisclosed injury as of late.

Toledo suspended junior RB Kareem Hunt and senior DE Allen Covington for the first two games of the season for a violation of team rules.

The two games are against Stony Brook and Arkansas. It is a bummer fans won't be able to see Hunt run against an SEC defense in, arguably, Toledo's biggest game of the season. Hunt absolutely wins out in space and flashes success between the tackles in tighter spaces. As a sophomore, Hunt rushed for 1,631 yards (8.0 yards per carry) and 16 touchdowns. He made up 49 percent of Toledo's rushing yards last season. Covington is a starter on the defensive side.

USC sophomore Adoree' Jackson is listed as a starting CB and second team WR on the Trojans' depth chart.

Jackson has split practice reps at receiver and corner. He has more game experience at corner, but coaches cannot get over how impactful he can be on offense, and who can blame them. Of the 10 passes he caught last season, Jackson scored three times. The star sophomore should see the field in all three phases of the game.

Texas Tech beat writer Don Williams expects sophomore Patrick Mahomes to "get the nod" as the starting QB over Davis Webb Jr. against Sam Houston State.

In July, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he wanted to name a starting quarterback as soon as possible. Here we are, week one, and TTU is still without a starter. Beat writer on Williams notes the decision could be withheld until the first offensive snap. Mahomes started four games last season, throwing 16 touchdowns compared to four interceptions.

Miami junior RB Gus Edwards will miss the entire 2015 season due to a foot injury.

Edwards was expected to be the Yin to Joe Yearby's Yang (quickness). Foot injuries are never good news for big backs, and Edwards is listed around 230 lbs. Freshman Mark Walton could see more time now. Edwards' injury was once considered "day-to-day."

During Montana's 38-35 win over North Dakota State on Saturday, CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler tweeted that Montana senior WR Jamaal Jones "attacks the ball w/ strong hands and body control."

Jones caught eight passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in Montana's dramatic win, which kicked off the unofficial start of the college football season. Brugler tweeted that the 6-foot-1, 191-pound senior--he's the team's top NFL prospect--was "impressive." Montana's had a history of pumping out draft talent. Since 2000, the school has had more players (10) plucked for the next level than any other non-FBS school. Last season, Jones made 67 catches for 1,044 yards and eight scores.

Ohio State named six captains for the 2015 season, including redshirt sophomore QB J.T. Barrett and graduate Braxton Miller.

Those around the program have pointed out Barrett's natural leadership ever since he took over as the starter last season. Miller is transitioning from quarterback to slot receiver, and should see a number of touches in every game, especially early on. The obvious missing name is Cardale Jones. The four others: DL Jacoby Boren, OL Taylor Decker, LB Joshua Perry and S Tyvis Powell.

The Chiefs and Raiders have already sent letters to Alabama senior ILB Reggie Ragland's high school coach, inquiring about his "character and work ethic."

The information teams have on prospects by the time the draft rolls around is verging on endless. And perhaps even gross. Connor Cook's high school coach was recently contacted by the Cleveland Browns. This type of preseason research is likely common among professional clubs, but is being relayed to the public more this year than before. Ragland should shine in Alabama's front seven this season.

Oregon graduate QB Vernon Adams has been named the team's starting quarterback for the 2015 season.

Adams was battling with Jeff Lockie to start for the Ducks in the team's first post-Marcus Mariota season. That he won the job is all the more impressive for the fact that he just started practicing two weeks ago. He had to resolve an academic issue prior to joining the team. The 6-foot, 190-pound graduate transfer threw for 10,438 total yards and 110 touchdowns over three seasons with Eastern Washington. Speaking of Eastern Washington, they're Oregon's opening opponent.

Illinois has fired HC Tim Beckman for allegations of player mistreatment.

A statement released by the school gave specifics, most of which revolved around Beckman's treatment of injured athletes. In part, it read: "During a preliminary briefing from the external reviewers, [athletic director Mike Thomas] said he learned of efforts to deter injury reporting and influence medical decisions that pressured players to avoid or postpone medical treatment and continue playing despite injuries." Because Beckman has been fired for cause, he will not be paid the remaining $3.1 million left on the final two years of his contract. He closes out his tenure with the Illini with a 4-20 record in the Big Ten and a 12-25 overall record. Offensive coordinator Bill Cubit will serve as interim coach for the 2015 season. Illinois opens the season against Kent State next Friday.
