Notre Dame will vacate 21 wins from 2012 and 2013 following the NCAA's denial of an appeal which the program filed in relation to several cases of academic misconduct.

The NCAA initially announced that they would be vacating wins from the Irish back in November of 2016. That came about after the program self-reported that a former student athletic trainer's actions had amounted to academic misconduct on behalf of a pair of football players. That same athletic trainer was additionally involved in giving impermissible academic benefits to six other players. There was also a case of one player committing academic misconduct of his own volition. Following the NCAA's denial of Notre Dame's appeal, school president John Jenkins penned a letter saying that the university is "deeply disappointed" and "strongly disagrees" with the ruling. On their own, Notre Dame moved to suspend five players for academic misconduct prior to the start of the 2014 season.

Appalachian State hired NC State OC Eliah Drinkwitz to serve as head coach.

Looks like App State found their Scott Satterfield replacement. Drinkwitz came to NC State three years ago after spending the previous two campaigns with Boise State. He has a sharp offensive mind and has helped develop two of the brand name quarterbacks currently in our lives in BSU's Brett Rypien and NC State's Ryan Finley. This season, Drinkwitz's offense with the Wolfpack averaged 35.6 points per game. This is a hire we very much like on the offensive side. A few strong staff hires on defense would be palatable.

Washington received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 CB Trent McDuffie.

McDuffie picks the Huskies over schools like USC, Stanford and Oregon. He was considered a lean for Washington for some time, but it's now official. It's an important get for a secondary that is (likely) to lose several quality players, including starting corners Jordan Miller and Byron Murphy. The Huskies have plenty of talented recruits waiting in the wings, but McDuffie (5'11/186) is rated the eighth best corner in the class, so he could be an immediate contributor.

BuffZone.com reporter Brian Howell reports that Colorado will hire Georgia defensive analyst Tyson Summers as the new defensive coordinator.

If Summers' name sounds familiar, you might remember that he was the head coach at Georgia Southern until October of 2017. He was fired after the Eagles fell to 0-6 that year, and he recorded a 5-13 record in his two years at the school. Prior to getting that job, Summers was the defensive coordinator at Colorado State, so he should know the area well. He'll be working under Mel Tucker -- he himself a former defensive coordinator -- so it's likely that Tucker will be the defensive playcaller for the Buffs in 2019. He's the second Georgia analyst to come with Tucker, with Jay Johnson being named offensive coordinator earlier in December.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray would have to forego a large portion of his bonus if he opts to play in the NFL.

It certainly makes sense that the Athletics would want to protect their investment in Murray. After all, he was given a bonus of nearly $5 million after being a first-round pick. What couldn't have been known is just how much Murray's stock would explode; winning the Heisman Trophy and leading Oklahoma to the playoffs. Murray sounds like he's open to playing both sports, but we'll have to see if he's an NFL player in 2019. It will be the most intriguing story to follower after the college football playoffs.

Ohio State redshirt junior DT Dre'Mont Jones announced that he will enter the 2019 NFL Draft.

Jones is going off to the NFL, but he's got one more game in an Ohio State uniform; as he announced he'll play in the Rose Bowl against Washington. The 6-foot-3, 286-pound defender has been highly productive with the Buckeyes, and finishes 2018 with 8.5 sacks, 13 tackles for loss, and an interception that he returned for a touchdown. This is a loaded defensive tackle class, but Jones still could be a first-round pick because of his inside pass-rushing ability, and he ranks ninth among defensive tackles in Mel Kiper's recently released draft board.

Syracuse announced an extension with HC Dino Babers.

The amount of years and the amount of cash is not known at this time, nor is the buyout. Syracuse does announce in their statement that it's a "long-term" extension, but that doesn't offer much information. Babers went 4-8 in his first two years at Syracuse after coming over from Bowling Green, but he took the program to a 9-3 season; with two of those losses coming to playoff teams Notre Dame and Clemson. He was a speculative coach at several of the bigger openings, and this is the payoff.

Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley told reporters on Wednesday that it's "too early" to know if junior WR Marquise Brown can play against Alabama on December 29.

Brown has been "limited" in practice after leaving the Big-12 Championship Game win over Texas on December 1 with the foot injury. ""Still too early," Riley said of Brown's status. "Working through it. It's not a definite no, not a definite yes. We're hopeful, but he hasn't done much to this point." It'd be a big loss for the Sooners, as Brown has put up a line of 75/1,318/10 for the 12-1 Sooners. We should know more in the coming weeks.

Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel reports that Temple is in the process of finalizing a deal with Miami DC Manny Diaz to fill their open head-coaching position.

The Owls are looking to fill the vacancy left behind by former HC Geoff Collins, who earlier accepted the lead position at Georgia Tech. Texas A&M DC Mike Elko and Michigan DC Don Brown were two other candidates who had emerged in this coaching search, but it would appear that Temple sees Diaz as their man. His defense clocked in as the No. 15 scoring defense in the country for the 2018 season. Should this deal come through with the Owls, it would represent Diaz's first shot at a head-coaching job.

Las Vegas will host the 2020 NFL Draft.

This will be the first time that Las Vegas has ever hosted the draft. It coincides with the Raiders' upcoming move to Sin City. Vegas will be the fourth different city to host the draft in as many years. This spring's draft of the 2019 rookie class will be held in Nashville.

Michigan dismissed sophomore RB O'Maury Samuels.

The Wolverines did not offer specifics as to why Samuels was being dismissed, but this would appear to stem from a Dec. 8 incident which involved the University of Michigan police. According to court records, the sophomore back is currently facing misdemeanor charges of domestic violence and malicious destruction of property. He appeared in court on Wednesday and has another appearance scheduled for Dec. 27. Samuels has not been an integral part of UM's offense since signing on with the program as a four-star recruit in the 2017 class. He took a total of 21 carries in his two years in Ann Arbor.

SMU redshirt junior QB Ben Hicks will transfer as a graduate.

Hicks (6'2/220) informed HC Sonny Dykes of his intention to transfer earlier in the week. He ends his career at SMU as the program's all-time leader in a multitude of categories, including passing yardage (9,081 yards) and passing touchdowns (71). His high-water mark at SMU came in 2017, when he threw for 3,569 yards with a 33/12 TD/INT ratio. It was something of a struggle for him in his lone year in Dykes' Air Raid, as his yardage total, YPA and touchdown tally all took notable drops off that stellar 2017 showing.
