Football Scoop reports that Texas A&M is making a second run at LSU DC Dave Aranda.

The Advocate's Ross Dellenger reported on New Year's Day that Aranda had rebuffed Texas A&M's most recent overtures to join the staff. It would appear they're not letting that dream die, though. The program has been pursuing the defensive coordinator on-and-off over the past three years. We'll update Texas A&M's latest run at Aranda as information becomes available.

Syracuse redshirt freshman QB Tommy DeVito came in off the bench to complete 11-of-19 passes for 181 yards, three touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 40-37 double-overtime victory over UNC.

DeVito was summoned off the bench in a huge spot, with Syracuse trailing 27-20 with a mere 5:07 left. He hit Nykeim Johnson for a 42-yard equalizer with only 1:39 left to force overtime. DeVito then threw a pair of touchdowns in extra time to knock off UNC. The importance of this win cannot be understated for Syracuse. They now are a heavy, heavy favorite to return to bowl season. If they'd lost this game, they likely would have had under a 50% chance to secure the two wins they would have needed to qualify over the remainder of the schedule. As beat writer Stephen Bailey tweeted during the game, "Donovan McNabb once won the starting job against UNC..." DeVito likely just did the same.

Ohio junior QB Nathan Rourke completed 8-of-12 passes for 193 yards with four touchdowns and ran for 101 yards and a score in a 49-14 shellacking of Bowling Green on Saturday.

Very impressive. Rourke didn't show any of the ill effects that limited him in the loss to Northern Illinois last week, and the 6-foot-2, 208-pound signal-caller showed off his impressive improvisational skills on the ground, as well. Simply put, when Rourke is healthy and doesn't turn the ball over, he's as good as any Group of Five quarterback in the country. Ohio will take on Ball State on Thursday.

Syracuse senior WR Jamal Custis caught seven passes for 162 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 40-37 double-overtime victory over UNC.

Monster game for Custis (6'5/213), and he saved the best for last, hauling in a 25-yard touchdown pass from Tommy DeVito down the sideline on Syracuse' second play of the first overtime. A longtime tease, Custis is finally making good on his talent. He's posted a 32-592-4 line during Syracuse's 5-2 start. The Orange host NC State next week.

Michigan State redshirt freshman QB Rocky Lombardi replaced ineffective starter Brian Lewerke during the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against Michigan.

There wasn't much time remaining in the game when Lombardi got his opportunity to lead the Michigan State offense, so HC Mark Dantonio's decision to make a change may not impact much moving forward. That being said, Lombardi replaced a quarterback in Lewerke who was 5-for-25 passing for a paltry 66 yards.
Oct 20 - 4:43 PM

Virginia redshirt QB Bryce Perkins completed 20-of-32 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 28-14 win over Duke.

Perkins also added 61 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. Perkins was the team's leading rusher and passer in this one, accounting for three touchdowns in the Cavaliers upset as 8-point road underdogs. His top receiver was unsurprisingly Olamide Zaccheaus who caught half of his 20 completions for 66 yards. Perkins now has 12 passing touchdowns and five rushing scores on the season. He will look to continue his success next week against UNC.
Oct 20 - 4:37 PM

Syracuse senior QB Eric Dungey was benched for Tommy DeVito in Saturday's 40-37 double-overtime victory over UNC.

Dungey's failure to grow as a passer finally caught up to him. A longtime program leader and an utter warrior on the field, Dungey, in the end, is what he is: A good runner and a mediocre passer with durability concerns in a system that requires strong pocket play. It looks like Dungey will close his college career having never thrown for 2,700 yards in a season, quite surprising for a quarterback who got three years to run Dino Babers' system (injuries played a part, to be fair). We may hear from him again this season, but after DeVito's performance on Saturday, it'd be surprising if Syracuse went back to Dungey. It's also worth monitoring Dungey's health status. He was shaking his arm on the sideline in the second half and has a history of nagging shoulder woes.
Oct 20 - 4:36 PM

Wisconsin sophomore RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 159 yards on 27 carries in Saturday's 49-20 win over Illinois.

Taylor (5'11/211) did not manage to get into the end zone on Saturday (Taiwan Deal scored twice), but this was a fine effort regardless. The sophomore star averaged 5.88 YPC on the afternoon, with his long run going for 19 yards. He's topped 100 yards rushing in each of Wisconsin's seven games this season. All told, Taylor has now ripped it up for 1,109 yards on the ground with eight touchdowns scored. Northwestern shows next on the Badgers' schedule.
Oct 20 - 4:15 PM

Auburn redshirt freshman JaTarvious Whitlow (shoulder) picked up 170 yards on 19 carries in a 31-16 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.

Whitlow was dealing with a shoulder injury that made him questionable for the contest against the Rebels. You wouldn't have known it watching the 6-foot, 216-pound tailback run. He had a long of 54, and while he didn't get into the end zone, virtually every offensive score was due at least in part to him being able to move the chains. Whitlow is going to be a very good one to watch over the next two-to-three years. A showdown on November 3 comes next for the Tigers against Texas A&M.
Oct 20 - 4:13 PM

Oklahoma sophomore RB Trey Sermon (leg) will be re-evaluated upon the team's return to Norman after leaving Saturday's game at TCU with an apparent lower leg injury.

Following Oklahoma's 52-27 victory HC Lincoln Riley said that the prognosis for Sermon "looks promising." Good news regarding the sophomore's health would certainly be welcome, as Oklahoma's starting running back Rodney Anderson suffered a season-ending torn ACL in early September.
Oct 20 - 4:06 PM

Oklahoma redshirt freshman RB Kennedy Brooks ran for 168 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in a 52-27 victory on Saturday against TCU.

Brooks (5'/10/205) and Trey Sermon split carries, and both went over 100 yards. While Sermon had two scores, it was Brooks who had the bigger yardage day, and he was able to find the end zone himself on a 21-yard scamper to give the Sooners a 21-7 lead. Brooks has now gone over the century mark in two-of-three games, and he's made the loss of Rodney Anderson much less damaging than it probably should have been for Oklahoma. He and the Sooners get Kansas State next Saturday.
Oct 20 - 3:54 PM

Buffalo redshirt senior WR Anthony Johnson caught four passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-17 win over Toledo.

He's baaaaccccckkkk! Jackson has struggled with a hamstring injury over the past month, an injury that forced him to miss one game and had him limited in another. Johnson (6'2/210) was reported to be nearing 100% prior to the game and then went out and showed that to be the case. He is a prime NFL prospect.
