Fresno State senior QB Derek Carr completed 52 of 73 passes for 456 yards, five touchdowns and one interception in Thursday's 52-51 overtime win against Rutgers.

Carr began the game a bit sluggish, but he threw his first touchdown of the season with two seconds remaining in the first half and proceeded to assault the box score. He shattered the old Mountain West records for completions (42) and attempts (67). Carr must work on some mechanical throwing problems (he throws off-balance, for one) and his pocket awareness and poise (tends to panic and/or force throws under fire) if he is going to improve his draft stock. Carr, however, has no such poise issues off the field. The link below leads to a recent harrowing article in the New York Times about Carr's newborn son, Dallas, who was discharged after spending more than three weeks in the hospital with a digestive tract defect.

Clemson junior QB Deshaun Watson completed 23-of-34 passes for 288 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 42-35 win over Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship Game.

In a rare change of pace, Watson also chipped in with 85 yards rushing and two rushing touchdowns. His ground statistics have been noticeably muted for most of the season. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Heisman candidate entered Saturday's game with just 439 yards rushing and four scores over the course of 12 contests completed, this after he gouged opposing defenses for 1,105 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns in 15 games a year ago. With his five total touchdowns on Saturday, Watson has now accounted for 43 of them. He figures to have a busy month ahead of him, with a potential Heisman trip to New York and a Playoff showing at the end of December. And then, no rest for the weary, it will be on to draft preparation for the star quarterback.

Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement rushed for 164 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in Saturday's 38-31 loss to Penn State in the Big Ten Championship Game.

While Clement put forth several impressive runs -- including a 67-yard scoring run around the left edge in the first quarter -- he will be haunted by one play late. With Wisconsin down seven and facing a fourth-and-short late in the fourth quarter, the 5-foot-11, 227-pound senior took the carry and tried to find wiggle room for the necessary gain. It was not to be, though, as Penn State played his dive perfectly and held him short of the line to gain. The Nittany Lions proceeded to run out the clock. This loss unofficially knocks Wisconsin out of Playoff contention.

Penn State redshirt sophomore QB Trace McSorley was brilliant in Saturday's 38-31 win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, throwing for 384 yards and four touchdowns.

McSorley was nothing short of phenomenal in this one, helping the Nittany Lions to withstand an early flurry of punches from the Badgers via a monster comeback from down 28-7 midway through the second quarter. The 6-foot, 195-pounder showed beautiful touch and placement on multiple passes, including a 70-yard scoring toss to Saeed Blacknall early in the third quarter. McSorley averaged a stellar 12.3 YPA in the win. His performance on Saturday boosted him to single-season school records for both passing yardage (3,360 yards) and passing touchdowns (25).

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Saturday's 27-24 win over Wyoming in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Pumphrey and backfield buddy Rashaad Penny both surpassed 100 yards rushing in this one, with Penny actually leading the Aztecs with his 117 yards. As a team, San Diego State rushed for 242 yards and three touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Pumphrey looked absolutely unstoppable for much of the season, but had been held under 100 yards rushing in each of his last two games prior to breaking out of his mini-slump on Saturday. San Diego State has now won back-to-back Mountain West titles. A year ago, they defeated Air Force to earn conference bragging rights.
Dec 3 - 11:37 PM

Arkansas State sophomore RB Warren Wand rushed for 135 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries in Saturday's 36-14 win over Texas State.

Wand scored from 26 yards out early in the second quarter. That was the only touchdown the Red Wolves managed in the first half. They clung to a 16-14 lead entering the fourth quarter before dropping 20 consecutive points in the fourth to pull away for an easy-on-the-scoreboard victory. This was just Wand's second 100-yard rushing effort in 12 games. At 7-5, Arkansas State will be going bowling in the coming weeks.

Wisconsin redshirt freshman QB Alex Hornibrook (head) is not starting Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game against Penn State.

Hornibrook has been dealing with a head injury sustained against Minnesota last weekend. While he will potentially be available in the Big Ten title tilt, Bart Houston draws the start in his place. Both quarterbacks could see playing time depending on the flow of the game.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield announced that he's coming back for his final season next year.

The redshirt junior was granted an additional season of eligibility prior to the campaign when the Big 12 voted to allow walk-ons to transfer within the conference without losing a season of eligibility. Mayfield, who finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting last year, threw for 3,669 yards and 38 touchdowns this year.

Alabama redshirt sophomore RB Bo Scarbrough rushed for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries in Saturday's 54-16 dismantling of Florida in the SEC Championship Game.

Alabama's offense failed to fire on all cylinders, but they did receive contributions from multiple parties. Scarbrough led the Tide with his 91 yards rushing, while Damien Harris was nipping right at his heels with 86 yards of his own. Joshua Jacobs and Derrick Gore also came through with rushing touchdowns. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 228-pound Scarbrough would hit the end zone for both of his scores in the second half. The former five-star recruit hasn't ripped up the universe like some were forecasting during the offseason, but he does have seven touchdowns on the year and has served as a productive cog for the newly-minted SEC champs. To the Playoff, now.
Dec 3 - 7:50 PM

West Virginia junior RB Justin Crawford rushed for 209 yards on 28 carries in Saturday's 24-21 win over Baylor.

Skyler Howard proved spotty in the passing game, throwing for all of 111 yards in the contest. With little happening through the air, the Mountaineers leaned hard on their running game, racking up 312 yards as a team. The bulk of that output came via Crawford. He averaged 7.4 YPC with a long run of 63 yards in the victory. Just about the only knock you could levy against him is the fact that he failed to rush for a touchdown. Otherwise, this was a dynamite performance through-and-through. While the 5-foot-11, 198-pounder has been held under 50 yards rushing five times in 12 games this season, he also has several monster efforts to his name. Most notably, Crawford blasted Oklahoma for 331 yards on 24 carries back on November 19. West Virginia wraps up its regular season with a 10-2 record and will now await bowl assignment.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports that Oregon has interviewed Boise State HC Bryan Harsin and South Florida HC Willie Taggart for their open head-coaching position.

Oregon parted ways with HC Mark Helfrich this past week. While McMurphy relays that Harsin and Taggart have both received interviews for the vacant position, USA Today has also floated Western Michigan's P.J. Fleck as a potential candidate, here. The Ducks finished the 2016 season with a 4-8 record.
Dec 3 - 4:31 PM

Oklahoma junior RB Samaje Perine rushed for 239 yards and a touchdown on 37 carries in the school's 38-20 win over Oklahoma State.

Perine could have easily scored another touchdown, but on the final drive he took a knee at the one yard line to run out the clock. Perine's name gets lost in the running back shuffle, however, that could change as many file through the ball carriers leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft. That is if Perine declares for the draft.
