Oklahoma freshman RB Joe Mixon is being investigated by police for allegedly striking a female student, according to his attorney Kevin Finlay.

The incident apparently occurred early Friday morning. Norman police acknowledged the event but no arrests have been made at this time. The alleged victim has been identified, and she said she had never seen Mixon prior to that day, and the punch broke four bones in her face. The alleged victim added she plans to sue Mixon and that she hopes Mixon "goes to prison for years," according to News OK.

Citing a source, Yahoo Sports' Rand Getlin says the number of non-seniors who declare for the 2015 draft could "dwarf" last year's record number of 107.

"The most cited reason for underclassmen jumping to the NFL? They're sick of playing without market-based compensation," Getlin tweeted. The NFL altered their Draft Advisory Board grading system in the hopes of preventing such an event, but it might not change a thing. Of the 107 prospects who declared last year despite having eligibility remaining, 45 went undrafted.

LSU redshirt sophomore WR Travin Dural will return for the 2015 season.

Dural is easily LSU's top receiver, both statistically and talent wise. He recorded 37 catches for 758 yards and seven touchdowns this season, basically doubling the school's second leading receiver. Even Dural started hot and fizzled as the season went along. LSU is very much a ground focused offense and will face Notre Dame in their bowl game.

Pitt HC Paul Chryst will be named to the same position at Wisconsin on Wednesday, according to Benjamin Worgull.

The move was expected as soon as Gary Andersen left for Oregon State. Chryst spent the 2005 to 2011 seasons as Wisconsin's offensive coordinator before leaving to take the head coaching job at Pitt, along with having a couple seasons of NFL experience. Some reports have stated coaches and administrators conflicting, but Chryst is likely comfortable with many around the program.

Michigan State junior QB Connor Cook will return to school for the 2015 season, according to ESPN and the AP.

Cook says he has "unfinished business" at Michigan State that needs to be taken care of next season. We have heard this line before. Cook has a very talented arm and is willing to test coverage downfield. However, hopefully Cook improves how well he handles a muddied pocket and bodies around him. Cook tends to drop his eyes and get frenetic with his movement rather than displaying poise and positive eye level. He is in the running to be the top quarterback in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Former Washington junior CB Marcus Peters will enter the 2015 NFL Draft, according to Rand Getlin.

This conclusion is absolutely expected after Peters was dismissed from Washington a few months back. Details of that event surfaced recently, as one NFL scout revealed Peters attempted to strangle a coach on the sidelines, which led to his first suspension. "Then they let him back on the team and he did it all over again," the scout said. From a talent perspective, Peters might be the best corner in this class. It remains to be seen if he is drafted, however.

USC junior DL Leonard Williams is considered "a lock" to enter the 2015 NFL Draft, according to Rand Getlin.

Getlin notes Williams has been "hedging" on his decision, but it seems to be practically set in stone. It would be a major shock if Williams decided to stay even before this update. Many view Williams a top five lock, but he does have issues getting off the line of scrimmage in a timely manner.

Bo Pelini will be Youngstown State's next HC, according to the Vindicator.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman confirmed the news that had been previously rumored. As you know, Pelini was fired from Nebraska a few weeks ago. He is obviously still on Nebraska's payroll, so money is likely not a major factor in his decision making. YSU is an FCS level program but has a long history of prominent coaches who have worked for the football team. Pelini, in fact, was born in Youngstown and attended Ohio State.

Oregon junior DL Arik Armstead is "heavily leaning" towards declaring for the 2015 NFL Draft, according to Rand Getlin.

Getlin says Armstead's father has already begun speaking with agents. The defensive linemen has heard from NFL evaluators who see a potential first-round pick. Can see him go very, very high," one AFC West GM said in a document obtained by Getlin. "Has everything you want out of a [defensive lineman]. Height, length, power, pass rush ability. Needs to show more consistency, but raw potential is very intriguing. First round." Armstead was viewed as a top offensive tackle recruit coming out of high school and has frequently flashed along the defensive line. He dealt with a number of injuries this season.

The MMQB's Peter King spoke with one NFL GM who evaluated QBs this fall who said Oregon redshirt junior Marcus Mariota is not "the kind of guy you’re penciling in to start opening day."

Good luck with that. The GM goes on to explain his reasoning. "He’s not playing in a classic pro style offense in college, and you don’t want him to come in relying all on his athleticism." The executive did add Mariota stayed in the pocket longer, evolved as a passer and was "less impulsive" this season. The GM is by no means calling Mariota a system quarterback, but we expect to hear that term thrown around this draft process. It could not be further from the truth.

Mississippi State DC Geoff Collins is taking the same position with Florida, according to Thayer Evans of SI.

We are big fans of Collins' style this season, using plenty of rotation up front to keep pass rushers and disruptors fresh. It is a staple of NFL defenses right now. Collins was with Miss St since 2011 but became the full-time DC in 2013.

Ohio State OC Tom Herman, who is expected to be Houston's next HC, will not join the Cougars until after OSU is finished playing in the CFB Playoff.

Frequently when a coordinator moves on to a head coaching position, he does not stick with the school during bowl activities. Meaningful playoff games change that. Herman has worked with three different quarterbacks tracing back to this summer, each with their own positives and negatives. He will be going up against Nick Saban's athletic and deep defense.
