Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller will not play against Florida A&M.

Senior backup Kenny Guiton, who impressed in his first start against Cal, will get the call again on Saturday. Head coach Urban Meyer praised Guiton after his last game, mentioning the senior would likely get playing time even when Miller returns. The junior is dealing with a knee sprain.

Penn State HC James Franklin received a vote of confidence from AD Sandy Barbour on Wednesday.

"He's not on the hot seat, and he's not going to be on the hot seat in December. James is going to be our football coach," said Barbour. While this hasn't been an out-and-out disaster of a season for Franklin and the 2-2 Nittany Lions, his team was flattened 49-10 by Michigan on Saturday. A Happy Valley showdown with Minnesota shows next on their schedule. "I believe in where this football program is going under James Franklin," Barbour said, "and I think he's going to be our football coach, period."

Alabama senior edge rusher Tim Williams was arrested early Thursday morning on charges of carrying a pistol without a permit.

Per AL.com's Matt Zenitz, Williams was arrested around 2:00 a.m. Thursday morning after officers noticed the smell of marijuana emanating from his vehicle. A passenger in the vehicle claimed that the drug was not Williams'. Upon searching the car, an unlicensed pistol was found under the 6-foot-4, 237-pound senior's seat. If all of this sounds vaguely familiar, that is probably because star tackle Cam Robinson found himself in a similar situation in May. It is not yet known whether Williams will be allowed to play against Kentucky this weekend, but a suspension is likely, here.

Alabama redshirt freshman QB Blake Barnett will transfer.

The human experience can change drastically in one month's time. Just ask Barnett. At the beginning of September, he was the starting quarterback for the defending national champs. Today, not four weeks later, he seeks a new home. The former five-star recruit lost his gig to electrifying freshman Jalen Hurts and was looking at mopup duty until graduation unless he left. So he, you know, left. And with that, redshirt junior Cooper Bateman is now the Tide's backup quarterback.

Florida HC Jim McElwain announces that junior WR Brandon Powell is eligible to play the entirety of Saturday's game against Vanderbilt.

Funny story, guys. Referees mistakenly ejected Powell from Saturday's game versus the Vols when a Tennessee player flopped to the ground and the stripes thought a Powell punch was the reason why. Powell, in fact, was acquitted as innocent by the video, which means he won't be deprived the opening half against the Commodores. Early on, Powell has 15 catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher intends to be the coach of the Seminoles "for a long time."

If Fisher wanted to talk to LSU about its vacancy following the firing of Les Miles, he'd jump right to the top of the Tigers' list of candidates. At least for now, Fisher is dismissing the possibility. "I love this university," Fisher said Wednesday, "and I plan on being here for a long time. I love Florida State, and that's all I'm saying. Anything else is clutter and does not concern me and is not involving me." Fisher, who said he hasn't spoken to LSU about its vacancy, was an assistant coach under Nick Saban and Miles at LSU from 2000-2006.

An AFC executive says he's "a little disappointed" in Clemson junior QB Deshaun Watson's throwing.

"I know it's early, but I'm a little disappointed in (Deshaun) Watson's throwing," the exec said. "He's missed the mark a bit because he's guiding and aiming the ball instead of letting it rip." Though Watson was shockingly ineffective in the first two weeks of the season against Auburn and Troy, he's looked to have mostly returned to form against South Carolina State and Georgia Tech the last two times out. If Watson lights up the ACC, scouts will forgive the slow start.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney calls Louisville sophomore QB Lamar Jackson a "right-handed Michael Vick."

This is becoming a popular comparison, with Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom our resident mouthpiece who has made it recently. This is how Swinney explained his comp: "A right-handed Michael Vick ... He's got that same explosiveness. He can rip the football the same. To me, you hate to compare guys, but that's what he looks like." Swinney's Tigers host Jackson on Saturday when Louisville comes to town for one of the most anticipated games of the young season. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Jackson has accounted 25 touchdowns -- 13 passing and 12 rushing -- 1,330 yards passing and 526 yards rushing in just four games.

Oregon anticipates having junior RB Royce Freeman (leg) for Saturday's showdown against Washington State.

Per Oregon's running backs coach, Freeman has been practicing in full and should be "100 percent" on Saturday. Freeman suffered a right leg injury two weeks ago in the loss to Nebraska, causing him to miss the entirety of Saturday's loss to Colorado at home. Historically, the upshot of the injury is it likely boxes out Freeman from breaking Oregon's career rushing record held by LaMichael James -- assuming Freeman leaves for the NFL this winter. Freeman is 1,555 yards short of James' 5,082 yards, accrued from 2009 through 2011.

UCLA LB coach Scott White says true freshman LB Mique Juarez is enrolled in classes and will meet with coach Jim Mora later this week.

"The plan hasn't changed at all. The plan has always been for him to be back with us," White said. The five-star recruit has now missed seven weeks due to undisclosed personal reasons. He recently told the Orange County Register that he’s seeing a psychiatrist after dealing with "just too much pressure." Per White, the coaches want to make sure he's doing well before asking too much of him on the football field.

LSU head coach Ed Orgeron has reinstated junior DL Davon Godchaux after the charges against him were dropped.

Godchaux was arrested on Monday on charges of false imprisonment, domestic abuse battery and child endangerment and was suspended immediately. The charges were dropped due to inconsistent statements from the victim. Godchaux will re-join the team on Wednesday. He is one of the more talented defensive lineman in the entire country.

LSU junior RB Leonard Fournette is considered a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Missouri due to an ankle injury.

The injury has nagged him since the summer and seems to be a small storyline each week. Fournette carried the ball just 16 times last week against Auburn in a loss. Fournette did miss a "casual" practice on Monday, so his participation in team activities is obviously important.
