Oregon redshirt junior QB Marcus Mariota said junior WR Bralon Addison has a goal of returning to the field against Michigan State on September 6.

Addison tore his ACL during a non-contact drill in April, so this might be a bit of a longshot. "Addison continues to rehab and recently started jogging, according to Mariota," Sports Illustrated writes. Addison is a legitimate NFL talent. Michigan State is Oregon's third game of the season.

Per the ESPN broadcast, Troy redshirt senior RB Jordan Chunn (leg) labeled himself "questionable" to play in Saturdays's bowl game against Troy.

Chunn seemed like he had a better than 50-50 chance of playing, but pre-game warmups didn't go as well as he'd like. He's in uniform and moving around on the sidelines as we speak. Troy HC Neal Brown said he'll leave the decision up to Chunn.

North Texas senior RB Jeffery Wilson (foot) is officially out for Saturday's bowl game against Troy.

As expected. The Mean Green were hoping for a miracle, but Wilson's foot injury didn't heal in time. UNT will lean on freshman Nic Smith at tailback.

When asked on Twitter whether he'll play in the Peach Bowl against UCF on Jan. 1, Auburn junior RB Kerryon Johnson (ribs, shoulder) responded: "Of course."

Johnson is dealing with sore ribs and a shoulder injury. Neither required surgery, so it's probably all about pain tolerance at this point. While other runners may have used the medical issues as a reason to skip the bowl matchup, Johnson has no such intentions. Johnson has rushed for 1,320 yards and 17 touchdowns over 11 games, along with a 20-152-0 receiving line. After the season, he has a decision to make regarding the NFL.

South Carolina HC Will Muschamp announced that sophomore RB Rico Dowdle (leg) will play against Michigan in the Outback Bowl.

Dowdle has been out since fracturing his fibula in October. Prior to the injury, had had rushes for 206 yards on 60 carries for the Gamecocks. South Carolina has struggled to run the football all season, but Dowdle, A.J. Turner and Ty'Son Williams give USC at least a chance to pound the rock against the tough Wolverine run defense.

Ole Miss announced Friday that they will file an appeal on the bowl pan they received from the NCAA Infractions Committee.

The school had a self-imposed bowl ban for 2017, and will now appeal for the chance to play in a bowl -- assuming the Rebels qualify -- in 2018. The postseason ban comes after the Infractions Committee found that Mississippi committed 21 rules violations. The school also received a loss of scholarships, and former coach Hugh Freeze will have to serve a two-game conference ban if he returns to coaching.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that a "deal is imminent" between Louisiana and Arizona State OC Billy Napier.

This is a nice hire for the Ragin’ Cajuns, who will attempt to rebuild courtesy of an offensive revolution. Napier will bring an up-tempo spread system that prioritizes speed and getting athletes into space. The 38-year-old is a former Alabama and Clemson assistant who did strong work calling the shots for the Sun Devils' offense. Per Feldman, Napier is "really connected in the South."

Texas Tech signed DC David Gibbs to a contract extension.

After it was announced that Phil Bennett wouldn't return as Arizona State's DC, Gibbs became a rumored target of Herm Edwards' for the job. Instead, Gibbs has renewed his vows with the Red Raiders to the tune of a pay bump from $550,000 per year to $650,000. Tech's defense took a big step forward in 2017, leading the Big 12 with 27 takeaways.

West Virginia senior RB Justin Crawford will skip the Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl against Utah on December 26 to begin preparations for the NFL Draft.

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen announced the news on Thursday, shortly after Oregon released a similar news dispatch regarding Royce Freeman. Crawford, a JUCO transfer from Northwest Mississippi Community College, finished with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and back-to-back all-Big 12 second team appearances in his two years with the Mountaineers. The 6-foot, 200-pounder has skills, but he may get lost in the shuffle amidst this stacked running back class. USA Today's Luke Easterling did not rank Crawford among his top-22 RBs in a recent position ranking. Crawford figures to get taken sometime on Day 3.

West Virginia redshirt junior QB Will Grier announced that he'll return for his senior season in 2018.

This is the right decision, as Grier would have likely been a Day 3 afterthought had he declared. Grier (6'2/215) could improve his draft stock with a big senior season. And while he won't magically be bigger this time next year, he could cut down on some mistakes and dispel lingering decision-making concerns. He was outstanding in his first year as the Mountaineers quarterback, going 250-of-388 for 3,490 yards and a 34/12 TD/INT rate. For that, he was named the 2017 Big 12 Newcomer of the Year. Unfortunately, we likely won't see him again this year. Grier broke the middle finger of his throwing hand in gruesome fashion against Texas almost a month ago. He's unlikely to be active for the Mountaineers’ bowl game.

Oregon HC Mario Cristobal announced that senior RB Royce Freeman will sit out Saturday’s Las Vegas Bowl matchup against Boise State.

The tea leaves had been pointing this way over the past few days. "Am I disappointed in him? No. Do I want to see him play? Absolutely. But I stand by him," Cristobal said. The announcement ends Freeman's prolific collegiate career. He leaves as Oregon's leading all-time rusher with 5,621 yards, which ranks second all-time in Pac-12 history (Charles White) and sixth in FBS history. Freeman's 60 rushing touchdowns are a Pac-12 record. The 5-foot-11, 231-pounder is a versatile, bell-cow big back with receiving chops, slick footwork, plus-vision and great balance. He comes from a wide-open system that left fewer opposing defenders in the box. And since he's unlikely to test in the upper-echelon of RB athletes, evaluators could question whether he can be as effective at the next level, where he won't see the thinned-out boxes he did in college. That narrative may lead to Freeman being available at a discount. He's drawn Day 2 (Rds. 2-3) grades.

Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn announced that his office would not pursue charges against Oklahoma redshirt sophomore Rodney Anderson.

Earlier in December, a woman filed for an order of protection against Anderson, with details coming out later that the woman was a "victim of rape" and calling Anderson an "accused rapist." It was reported last week that he passed a three-hour polygraph test administered by a former FBI investigator. Barring a surprise, he should be on the field when the Sooners take on Georgia in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.
