Kent State senior OW Dri Archer rushed 138 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries in the school's 44-13 win over Ohio.

Archer added 53 receiving yards on five catches. We've been waiting for this breakout performance form Archer this season, since he posted multiple last year. The senior has dealt with injuries throughout his final season, but hopefully he turns it up in these final weeks. Archer has always had long speed, but he displayed some tackle breaking ability against Ohio.

Georgia is applying for junior RB Todd Gurley's reinstatement on Wednesday, according to a school announcement.

"The NCAA and UGA have been working together on Gurley's situation, so UGA's request seems almost assured of being approved," beat writer Seth Emerson writes. If granted, Gurley will likely be eligible to play in meaningful game action immediately. In the announcement, Gurley accepted responsibility for the mistakes he made and added he's excited to return to the field. The running back has missed the last two contests during the investigation.

Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke ranks UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley No. 37 overall on his big board.

It's always nice to meet like-minded individuals. We've been low on Hundley for the better part of two seasons, though we'll concede it's difficult to grade a toolsy QB playing behind a shoddy offensive line. Is skittishness in the face of pressure Hundley's nature? Or is it a result of circumstance, a bad habit that can be coached out of him at the next level? Nobody can be sure, but we can tell you that we wouldn't invest the type of pick that will be required to find out. Neither would Burke. "It has been a much slower progression for Hundley than really anyone had hoped," he wrote. "The dual-threat abilities for the 6-3, 227-pound QB are undeniable. So, too, are the issues Hundley shows in sensing approaching trouble. If he heads to the NFL after this season, a QB-needy team will call his name within the first couple rounds. How long before he's ready for a starting gig?"

Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke ranked Nebraska senior RB Ameer Abdullah as the No. 25 overall prospect and compared him to LeSean McCoy.

"Abdullah is a personal preference over Melvin Gordon," Burke wrote. "Why? Mainly because he's already shown he can be a three-down back, whereas Gordon has been eased into that role by Wisconsin. Abdullah (5-9, 195) has 16 touchdowns and nearly 1,200 total yards this season. His quick-cut running style is reminiscent of LeSean McCoy." The 5-foot-9, 195-pound Abdullah has 1,024 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on a 6.4 YPC average during Nebraska's 6-1 start.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Marshall senior QB Rakeem Cato "has some likeable traits with his athleticism to evade pressure and arm talent to push the ball downfield."

"However, his inconsistent mechanics, footwork and delivery motions can be maddening and his ball placement wavers too much, especially on the move," Brugler wrote. "Cato also lacks NFL size with a skinny frame and will likely go undrafted, projecting as a smaller, not as refined version of his childhood friend, Teddy Bridgewater." Last time out against FIU, Cato broke Russell Wilson's FBS record by throwing a touchdown in his 39th straight game. The Thundering Herd star has thrown for 1,912 yards, 19 touchdowns and six interceptions in seven games this season.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler projects Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman "as a mix of Darren McFadden and DeMarco Murray."

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Coleman hasn't been held below 100 yards yet this season. He leads the nation with 1,192 rushing yards and 8.8 yards per carry. "[Coleman] is able to gash defenses with his vision to find holes, body control to get skinny and burst to accelerate downfield," Brugler wrote. "He has worked his way into the top-75 discussion as a NFL prospect if he decides to declare early for the 2015 NFL Draft, projecting as a mix of Darren McFadden and DeMarco Murray."

SI's Chris Burke believes USC junior DL Leonard Williams projects as a defensive tackle in the NFL.

Last week, while ranking Williams as his No. 1 overall prospect, ESPN's Todd McShay wrote that Williams' "best projection is as a 5-technique defensive end, but he has the quickness and point-of-attack skills to perform inside as a 3-technique." Basically, that means J.J. Watt's role. "The discussion is not indicative of any uncertainty surrounding Williams' game, but rather confirmation of his wide-ranging game," Burke wrote.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler suggested West Virginia senior WR Kevin White could be the top receiver on some teams' draft boards in the spring.

Many analysts have been doing backflips over White over the past seven weeks, but this is perhaps the first time one has suggested that the Mountaineer could leapfrog Alabama's Amari Cooper and Michigan's Devin Funchess for top WR billing in the 2015 draft. "Barely a blip on the NFL Draft radar entering the season, White has displayed first round traits this season and is shooting up draft boards," Brugler wrote. "It won't be a surprise if he's the top receiver prospect on some team's draft boards next spring." The 6-foot-3, 210-pound White is on pace for a historic 128 catches, 1,885 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns. If WVU finishes strong, he'll get invited to New York for the Heisman ceremony.

LA Times' Scott Wolf reports that Utah HC Kyle Whittingham said he expects to start Utah junior QB Travis Wilson versus USC.

The 6-foot-7, 233-pound Wilson was benched during the UCLA game in the Utes' upset win over UCLA a week ago. Wilson will be back starting at quarterback after Oklahoma transfer and dual-threat dynamo Kendal Thompson struggled in the first half versus Oregon St. HC Whittingham replaced Thompson with Wilson in the second half in their double-overtime win against the Beavers. This season, Wilson has seven TDs and is completing 56.8 percent of his passes, while Thompson has two touchdowns and two interceptions and is completing 59.6 percent of his passes. With the competition still up in the air, we still could see Kendal Thompson make an appearance versus USC if Wilson struggles.

Oklahoma WR coach Jay Norvell says redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham is "like a different guy" during his off year.

"He's been working really hard and doing a lot of great things off the field too. ... He's growing and maturing," Norvell said. DGB dealt with a domestic abuse incident at Missouri, which was one reason he is no longer with the program. He is able to practice with the Sooners this season, and we still think there is a chance DGB never plays a down for Oklahoma and instead jumps to the NFL.

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly is expected to start versus Washington.

Kelly has missed multiple weeks while recovering from a right foot injury. We are of the opinion that Mike Bercovici might be a better player, but obviously Kelly has the "experience" tag on his side. It will be a difficult game to return for, as Washington has plenty of individual defensive talent.

Auburn sophomore DE Carl Lawson is not expected to play this season with lingering knee issues.

Teammates and coaches previously stated Lawson was on track to return from offseason knee surgery to repair a torn left ACL, but that seems unlikely now. "We've not gotten to the point yet it's good enough to talk about coming back," head coach Gus Malzahn said. If he does not play this season, Lawson would likely earn a redshirt label for 2014. He is one of Auburn's top defensive players.
