USC senior RB Silas Redd plans on making his season debut against Arizona next Thursday.

Redd made headlines last offseason after transferring from Penn State to USC, likely looking for a stable program to play in. It is an entirely different situation, but USC isn't so stable after all. Redd rushed for 905 yards and nine touchdowns on 5.4 yards per carry, but displayed major ball security issues. He is talented, but USC's offense has been putrid all season.

Notre Dame redshirt junior QB Everett Golson completed 16-of-24 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Louisville.

Earlier this week, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler called Golson "Mr. Turnover." Golson had some ugly plays on Saturday, but he was largely able to minimize the typical mistakes. His body language was horrific before halftime, though, particularly after a play in which he spun away from several defenders in the backfield, only to fumble the ball backward fifteen yards. Notre Dame eventually fell on the fumble and ended up in a 3rd-and-38. Head coach Brian Kelly could be seen in replays yelling the word "Why?" as though he was being tortured. Golson settled down eventually and almost led the Fighting Irish back to a win. When he's not turning the ball over, Golson's an intriguing athletic talent who has the requisite arm strength. It's unfortunate for his draft status that every game seems to have several "why?" plays.

Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Melvin Gordon III rushed for 200 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries in Saturday's win over Iowa.

Unlike the wet paper towel of a front he faced against Nebraska on his way to 408 yards, Iowa actually played a modicum of defense on Gordon and managed to bottle him up for most of the game. He was repeatedly forced to take small gains and it wasn't until an 88-yard late in the game that the redshirt junior pumped up his yardage total. Gordon's willingness to take what he's given, rather than dance in the backfield for losses, is one of his best traits and something he did again and again versus the Hawkeyes. This was his fifth game with 200 or more rushing yards, and his third in a row.

FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston completed 22-of-32 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 20-17 win over Boston College.

Winston also threw an interception in the contest. Yet again, he had to pull a rabbit out of his hat, this time leading the team to a game-winning field goal in the final minutes. Winston seemed agitated at times, yelling at the officials, his receivers and himself. His wideouts dropped several passes and favorite target Rashad Greene left for a time with an injury. Even on what was an off-day, Winston still completed 68.8% of his passes and showed the pinpoint accuracy and arm strength that could see him drafted in the Top-10.

Minnesota senior RB David Cobb tweeted that he would be ready to play next Saturday.

The full tweet was "all is well! I'll be ready to go next Saturday! Thanks." Cobb rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. He appeared to pull his hamstring on his 17-yard scoring scamper. While it's a good sign that Cobb's feeling confident, his status in practice this week will be something to keep an eye on as the Golden Gophers prepare for their meeting with Wisconsin.

Alabama junior WR Amari Cooper left Saturday's game against Western Carolina with a knee injury.

Cooper had caught three passes for 46 yards before he exited with a knee injury prior to the close of the first half. Alabama head coach Nick Saban indicated that Cooper could have come back into the game. Given that the halftime score was 38-14 against a vastly inferior team, the team could afford to let him sit with the injury. We'll update his status when more information becomes available.

Stanford senior WR Ty Montgomery exited Saturday's game against Cal with a right shoulder injury.

Prior to leaving, Montgomery had one catch for 14 yards. Physicality with the ball in his hands is one of Montgomery's trademarks, and that will be difficult to do with a bum shoulder. Montgomery is at his best after the catch, as a ball carrier or on returns, but those might have to be manufactured touches early on once reaching the NFL.

Pittsburgh sophomore RB James Conner will miss the remainder of the game against Syracuse with a hip injury.

Conner rushed for 38 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries before leaving. The running back has been the foundation of Pitt's offense all season long, and was even asked to play some defensive end at times.
Nov 22 - 5:35 PM

Penn State sophomore QB Christian Hackenberg completed 8 of 16 attempts for 93 yards and a touchdown in the school's 16-14 loss to Illinois.

Do we have to repeat ourselves? We have read some blaming the offensive line for Hackenberg's poor play this season while citing sack totals. That is not fair to the offensive line, as Hackenberg is the reason for so many of the sacks. It might not be a situation that many could succeed in, but right now Hackenberg is not one of them.
Nov 22 - 4:52 PM

Oklahoma freshman RB Samaje Perine rushed for 427 yards and five touchdowns on 34 carries, breaking Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon III's FBS record which was set last week.

Perine did not even start this game. Keith Ford did. In fact the game is still going on but Perine has been pulled. Gordon rushed for 408 yards last week, which broke a record set by LaDainian Tomlinson that had stood for over 10 years. Perine rushed for 213 yards last week, so he is having a pretty good month. Oklahoma has only attempted three passes thus far, and Perine caught one of them.
Nov 22 - 4:28 PM

Minnesota senior RB David Cobb rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in the school's 28-24 win over Nebraska.

He added 29 receiving yards before exiting following a touchdown run. It looked like Cobb pulled something, but it is unclear if it was his hamstring, quad or something else. We have continued to compare Cobb to Le'Veon Bell after taxes. He has many of the same qualities, just to a lesser degree.
Nov 22 - 3:56 PM

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 228 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries in the school's 42-27 loss to Ohio State.

Coleman displayed a tremendous amount of long speed in this game, taking advantage of lanes and openings. His play in the last few weeks is astounding, considering Indiana has no passing attack and defenses have tended to stack the box against the Hoosiers. The running back class is an extremely talented group.
