Georgia sophomore RB Todd Gurley injured his left ankle against LSU and returned after halftime in a boot and without pads.

Gurley was dragged to the ground on a run in the first half and hobbled off the field. Head coach Mark Richt called it a sprained ankle. Gurley totaled 73 yards on eight carries before departing. Keith Marshall will draw the most carries now.

Oregon redshirt junior QB Marcus Mariota completed 18 of 30 attempts for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 59-41 win over Cal.

It was Mariota's first interception of the season, but that certainly did not negatively mask a great performance. Mariota made big boy throws downfield, including multiple passes that resulted in over 20 yards. He was limited to 36 rushing yards and used his mobility for passing success rather than running. Oregon faces Stanford next week.

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White has drawn 11 defensive pass interference flags this season.

White has been an absolute monster. Josh Norris would say White has emerged as a receiver prospect who wins in the big and small games, a lethal combination. His stiffest test might have come last week against a physical Baylor corner. Production wise, White has amassed 69 catches for 1,020 yards and seven touchdowns.

Oregon junior DL Arik Armstead and sophomore RB Thomas Tyner did not travel for the school's game against Cal.

Some might look at this from an injury perspective, but we are not so sure. Team officials did not end the speculation since they did not give a specific reason. Armstead did miss time recently with a left ankle injury (now two of the last three games), but he was confident he would play this week. Tyner did hurt his shoulder last week against Washington. Kicker Matt Wogan was also left at home.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "there’s no definitive word" about whether or not Stanford junior T Andrus Peat will declare for the draft at present time.

Everybody and their mother is assuming Peat is a goner after this season, but we'll have to wait until over the winter to get word from the horse's mouth. "I’ve been told all along Peat is concentrating on the season at hand and will move his focus towards the draft after the campaign," Pauline wrote. Peat is likely to go in the top half of the first round.

Washington junior OLB Shaq Thompson and junior CB Marcus Peters will both declare for the draft after this season, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Both look like first-round picks, though each has questions surrounding them. For Thompson, scouts may be concerned by the former's safety size and lack of experience at linebacker. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder, who we compare to Ryan Shazier, has also seen time at running back. Peters, meanwhile, will have to answer questions about his off-the-field temperament.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "people close to the Indiana Hoosier program are planning for the departure of [junior RB] Tevin Coleman at seasons end."

We are of two minds on this. We love Coleman's ability -- comparing him to Darren McFadden -- and believe that most highly-touted underclassmen RBs with an opportunity to go no later than Day 2 should jump early to the NFL. However, Coleman might be an exception. This draft class will be loaded with runners -- from Georgia's Todd Gurley to Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon to Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah to Boise State's Jay Ajayi to South Carolina's Mike Davis to Miami's Duke Johnson, and more -- and Coleman might be better off, from a financial standpoint, of returning to school for one more season to make a run at the Heisman and Round 1. Of course, it's difficult to begrudge the decision of a person who wants to begin their career and capitalize on one additional year of financial security to do so. Coleman is on pace to finish in the top 10 in college football history in yards from scrimmage.

ECU senior WR Justin Hardy caught 14 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown in the school's 31-21 win over UConn.

Hardy is a very good slot receiver at the college level and is lucky to be playing the spot where he projects in the NFL. There is plenty of quickness and body control from his inside position, but do not expect him to consistently take the top of coverages. Hardy could be an early third day pick who makes his mark in the short and intermediate areas.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman "is quickly playing his way into second-round consideration with his ability not just to run but also catch the football," said an NFC scout.

We are generally of the mindset that underclassmen who are guaranteed of going on Day 1 or 2 should bolt early for the draft, but Coleman may be an exception. First off, he's not assured -- at least at this juncture -- of going on Day 2. Perhaps more importantly, this year's draft class is loaded at running back. With Georgia's Todd Gurley, Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon and Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah currently ahead of Coleman on most boards, the junior might decide it best to head back to Bloomington for one more year and make a run at the 2016 first round.

Oregon senior C Hroniss Grasu reminds an AFC scout of Browns' Pro Bowl center Alex Mack, reports

"That's about the highest praise a center can receive," observed Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis. "Interesting, too, because Auburn's Reese Dismukes entered the season as the near unanimous top prospect at the position, although Grasu was certainly in the conversation." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote over the summer that Grasu "will be downgraded because of poor measurables," but perhaps the center can mitigate those concerns by continuing to play like an All-American.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah compared Clemson senior edge rusher to former first-round pick Jerry Hughes.

A couple of years ago this might have read like a criticism, but Hughes is now a very good player after landing in a scheme that fits his strengths. Beasley took criticism earlier in the season, mainly from those focused on production, but when watching the tape he is able to work through his man in pass protection and frequently faced a second blocker. Beasley could be more consistent, however, a rotation in the NFL will help that.

Washington redshirt senior edge rusher Hau'oli Kikaha is leading the FBS in sacks with 12.5.

Only the half sack is assisted and all are a part of 15.5 tackles for loss. Kikaha has a number of knee injuries in his past, but we and many others have sung his praises since the beginning of the season. Production on its own does not offer a lot of merit, but how that production is achieved is most important. Kikaha offers disruption and production across multiple games.
