Central Michigan senior RB Zurlon Tipton returned to the field last night and rushed for eight yards on five carries.

Tipton suffered a broken ankle in early September and was expected to miss the entire season. The speedy recovery is a good sign, but Tipton, and the entire Chippewa offense, could not get much going last night. We like Tipton as a possible sixth- or seventh-round selection, but he has an extensive injury history.

Alabama graduate QB Cooper Bateman will reportedly remain with the Tide through the College Football Playoff before transferring.

Bateman was the favorite to win the starting quarterback gig all offseason and into fall camp, but Jalen Hurts broke his heart by emerging as one of the nation's most exciting young signal-callers. Bateman will be the Tide's No. 2 quarterback in the Playoffs, assuming this report is true and he remains with the team for a few more weeks.

Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo announced that senior QB Will Worth (foot) is out for the season.

The senior quarterback finished with 1,196 yards and 25 touchdowns on the ground, and also topped the 1,000-yard mark passing. Slotback Toneo Gulley was injured on the same play as Worth (6-foot-1, 205 pounds) in the American Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday against Temple. "I came in here and (Gulley) had just gotten the bad news. I used the same X-Ray machine and I got bad news as well," Worth said. "It was a tough time in there." Navy plays archrival Army on Saturday before traveling to the Armed Forces Bowl to close out the season on Dec. 23. Former No. 3 quarterback Zach Abey will close out the year as starter.

Former Texas and Arizona State position coach Jay Norvell will be the new head coach at Nevada, according to Football Scoop.

Norvell departed Texas prior to the season and joined Arizona State for one year. This is Norvell's first head coaching job at any level, but he has a wealth of offensive experience at big time college programs and in the NFL. Brian Polian went 23-27 in four seasons at Nevada.

USA Today's Dan Wolken reports Alabama OC Lane Kiffin will be Houston's next head coach, pending "pending a Thursday meeting at which school President Renu Khator will have to give the final OK."

As you all know, Tom Herman left for Texas. Kiffin was the head coach of the Oakland Raiders from 2007-2008, Tennessee in 2009 and coached USC from 2010-2013 before being fired mid-season at the airport. Since then, Kiffin has been an outstanding coordinator at Alabama, taking the Crimson Tide's offense to the next level and at times matching the school's historic defense. Houston has been an offensive minded team in the past, but their best player is freshman defensive lineman Ed Oliver. Kiffin, at the very least, can keep Houston at the level they currently sit. Beat writer Joseph Duarte disputes Houston has made its decision at this time.

Alabama redshirt sophomore David Cornwell will transfer.

Prior to last season, both ESPN and the Alabama-centric AL.com predicted that Cornwell would beat out Jake Coker to start for the Tide. That didn't happen, and Cornwell subsequently tumbled down the depth chart. Having already graduated from Alabama as a third-year soph, Cornwell is eligible to play immediately wherever he goes and has two years of eligibility remaining. A four-star 2014 recruit, Cornwell was ranked as the No. 4 pro-style QB in the country. Cornwell is the third Tide quarterback to transfer over the past few weeks, following Blake Barnett (committed to play at Arizona State) and Cooper Bateman (undecided). Last December, Tide QB Alec Morris transferred to North Texas. Looks like it's time for Nick Saban to go shopping for a few Jalen Hurts backups.

Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey confirmed that he will enter the 2017 NFL draft.

McCaffrey announced the news Wednesday on Twitter. McCaffrey wrote in a follow-up news release that "there's nothing more I can put on film," and we tend to agree. He shattered Barry Sanders' NCAA single-season record for all-purpose yardage in 2015 with 3,864 yards, winning the AP National Player of the Year award and finishing second in the Heisman Trophy race behind Alabama's Derrick Henry. C-Mac battled through injuries in 2016 but still put up 2,327 all-purpose yards, leading the country with 211.55 all-purpose yards per game. Despite Stanford's offense regressing and his aforementioned health issues, McCaffrey's ypc average actually jumped from 6.0 in 2015 to 6.3 this season. McCaffrey is the No. 28 overall prospect, according to Todd McShay.

Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly (knee) accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Unfortunately, Kelly will be a bystander, unable to participate in practices or play in the game due to a torn ACL and lateral meniscus. The silver lining is that he can rub elbows with evaluators. Across nine games this year, Kelly threw for 2,758 yards and 19 touchdowns. Fully healthy last season, he threw for 4,042 yards.

USF HC Willie Taggart will be Oregon's next head coach, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Taggart's name popped on occasion, but some reports gave him no chance of landing this position. Oregon decision makers disagreed, and Taggart was hired over names like P.J. Fleck. Taggart played football at WKU and coached there from 2010-2012 before taking the USF job in 2013 in his home state of Florida. His team is 17-4 over the last 21 games. Taggart has shown a willingness to change styles, as he fired offensive and defensive coordinators after a slow start at USF, something many coaches struggle with. This is the first external hire at Oregon in a very long time.

Clemson junior QB Deshaun Watson was named the winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.

The Golden Arm is handed out annually to the top senior or junior quarterback (on track to graduate with his class) in the country. Watson earns the honor on the strength of 3,914 yards passing (67.6% completions) and a 37/15 TD/INT ratio over the course of 13 contests completed. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder will also be attending Heisman proceedings in New York on Saturday, though Louisville QB Lamar Jackson may already be setting up camp in the Heisman House at this juncture.

Tennessee received a verbal commitment from five-star 2017 T Trey Smith.

The Volunteers might have disappointed with an 8-4 2016 campaign, but that was apparently not enough to sway Smith from making a commitment to Tennessee. This is a monster pledge. The 6-foot-6, 299-pounder ranks as ESPN 300's No. 1 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle. Ole Miss, Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Ohio State were also in the running for his commitment. Scout.com notes that Smith "has a great frame with good feet, flexibility, and the ability to be one who protects the quarterback and opens holes for running backs." The outlet calls him a "finisher."

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd hears that Oklahoma OC Lincoln Riley "killed it" during his interview for Houston's head-coaching position.

A plugged-in source had nothing but a glowing review for Riley's interview performance, telling Dodd, "I would be surprised if they don't hire him." Having spent eight years at Texas Tech, Riley already has the requisite roots in the state. Current Cougars coordinators Major Applewhite and Todd Orlando have also reportedly drawn interviews, as well as former LSU HC Les Miles and Alabama OC Lane Kiffin. Expect an official decision on Houston's Tom Herman replacement by the end of the week.
