Notre Dame junior DL Stephon Tuitt announced he plans on returning for his senior season.

"I’m coming back next year," Tuitt said. "I’m a junior. I still have one year." Tuitt has 18 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and three sacks this season. Many, including us, have questioned his play after adding weight this offseason following surgery. We would not put much stock into this statement, as Tuitt could lean towards declaring in January when the deadline approaches.

Stanford redshirt sophomore Barry Sanders Jr. has been named the school's No. 2 RB.

Senior Kelsey Young will start despite missing a large portion of camp due to an ankle injury. Sanders Jr. saw most of his action at punt returner, but also took five carries for 34 yards and a touchdown. The few times he had the ball in his hands, however, Sanders Jr. seemed to channel his father's ankle breaking skills.

Washington redshirt senior edge rusher Hau'oli Kikaha is not afraid of tearing his left ACL for the third time.

"There was a lot of mental growth, the injuries taught me to be patient," Kikaha told CBS Sports' Dane Brugler. "...The injuries taught me to invest more in the program, allowed me to get coached up in the film room." The edge rusher discussed his new role at Buck linebacker in the Huskies' odd front defense. "The 3-4 allows more 1-on-1 opportunities so I can make plays and be freed up. I spent a lot of time at the "4i" position and strong end last year so it's not too far off." Brugler spoke with one NFC North scout who said Kikaha's medicals will be imperative to his evaluation.

According to one anonymous college football assistant that does not have an affiliation to the Gators, Miami "started a war" after allegedly turning in former Florida assistant coach Joker Phillips for a recruiting violation, per SI's Pete Thamel and Thayer Evans.

The specific infraction, known as the "bump rule," prohibits coaches from talking to recruits during a dead recruiting period. "It’s bull----," one assistant said to Thamel and Evans. "Miami bumps and talks to kids more than anybody. They’ve started a war. They better watch out. You started messing with livelihoods and s--- is going to get dirty." Miami has previously been hit with major infractions and penalties form the NCAA.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery is expected to start the season opener against UC Davis after recovering from shoulder surgery.

Montgomery underwent right shoulder surgery last February and also hurt his knee in the Rose Bowl. The early reports stated Montgomery would miss the first two games of the season, but Montgomery was not satisfied with that projection. Rotoworld contributor Cian Fahey compared Montgomery to Tedd Ginn Jr.

Oregon senior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is expected to return punts.

Ifo is listed as the top punt returner on the Ducks' two-deep, with redshirt senior receiver Keanon Lowe and redshirt freshman receiver Darren Carrington behind him. Many consider Ifo the top draft-eligible corner prospect in college football (don't sleep on Marcus Peters), so adding some return ability would not be the worst thing for his evaluation.

Auburn announced sophomore QB Jeremy Johnson will start the opener against Arkansas on Saturday.

Perhaps the bigger news -- though it was expected -- is that Tigers coach Gus Malzahn announced Tuesday that Nick Marshall will play on Saturday. "We have a plan, and they know the plan," Malzahn said. Marshall isn't starting as punishment for a marijuana citation he received over the summer. "We have a lot of confidence in [Jeremy] to run our entire offense, and like I said before, he's very talented," Malzahn said. "The two games he played last year, he was the freshman SEC offensive player of the week." Johnson, who will be making his first SEC start, threw for 422 yards and six touchdowns in starts against Western Carolina and Florida Atlantic in 2013.

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer compared true freshman wide receiver Isaiah Ford to Antonio Freeman on Monday.

A reporter asked Beamer at Monday's news conference to compare Ford to a previous receiver he'd coached. "Maybe an Antonio Freeman?" Beamer said. "He makes plays. He's got some height to him." Freeman, who played nine seasons with the Packers and Eagles, is a former Hokies' receiver. Ford (6-foot-1, 174 pounds) will start in Saturday's opener against FCS opponent William & Mary. He wants to walk on to VT's basketball team when the football season concludes. "There have been a lot of football guys that wanted to play basketball, but he's the first one I ever thought that actually could play basketball, too," Beamer said. "He's just a gifted athlete, he's got a great head on his shoulders, he's smart, he keeps everything in perspective. I think he's the real deal."

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller's torn labrum surgery was successful.

Buckeyes' HC Urban Meyer said on the Big Ten's Tuesday conference call that the surgery, performed by Dr. James Andrews, went according to plan. Miller wrecked his throwing shoulder in practice on Aug. 18. He was named team captain anyway and says he will return to school in 2015. Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett has assumed the starting job.

Oklahoma senior Blake Bell won the starting tight end job.

The 6-foot-6, 260-pound former starting quarterback beat out Taylor McNamara in Monday's depth chart. "Blake, he's been really solid," Sooners coach Bob Stoops said Monday. "He loves doing it. He's really a big a target, a comfortable target for Trevor or any quarterback when in the middle of the field. He's got great hands. The different lifting and training from a quarterback to a tight end has helped him get stronger and bigger, so the blocking has been solid, and I think that's something that as we go through the year that will improve the more he's on the field and the more opportunities he gets." Bell struggled with his accuracy as a signal-caller, but he also practiced a little bit at QB in camp and is being viewed as an emergency option if Trevor Knight gets injured. Stoops said "it never hurts to have an emergency plan." Currently, Cody Thomas is listed as the second-team quarterback.

USC head coach Steve Sarkisian said the school received calls on Tuesday contradicting senior DB Josh Shaw's story about saving his nephew from drowning.

"I heard late last night doubts within the program over Josh Shaw story," beat writer Scott Wolf tweeted. "Sources told me incident did not involve family party or rescuing nephew from pool. USC investigating claims." The initial story stated Shaw jumped from the second story to save his nephew, who could not swim. Saw suffered two high ankle sprains from the event, which was reported via a school release. Stay tuned for more.
