Former Alabama redshirt junior C Brandon Kennedy transferred to Tennessee as a graduate.

Upon Kennedy's announcement that he'd transfer as a graduate last month, the Tide barred him from transferring to any SEC school. That drew some national ire, which in turn fired up Nick Saban, who said he was merely abiding by conference rule. For better or worse, the decision is now out of Saban's hands -- and will be, going forward. The SEC adopted a new rule on June 1 stating that grad transfers can transfer within the conference without sitting out a year. A four-star 2015 signee, Kennedy (6'3/301) was the Crimson Tide's top backup center in 2017 before an injury knocked him out for the year. As he reunites with HC Jeremy Pruitt, Kennedy is in the mix to play immediately. He has two years of eligibility left.

The Daily Advertiser's Tim Buckley reports that Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson will be "leaving" his post.

"Leaving" is the term which Buckley's source used, which would seem to indicate that he will be either resigning or retiring. The exact nature of Benson's departure should receive clarity on Thursday, when a press conference is scheduled for an announcement on the move. He has been working as Sun Belt commissioner since 2012 after previously holding similar gigs with the WAC (1994-2012) and MAC (1990-94).

LSU and Clemson have scheduled a home-and-home series for the 2025 and 2026 seasons.

The equivalent of the "Spider-Man staring at Spider-Man" meme, this series will pit the Tigers against the Tigers, with both games to be played in a Death Valley. It'll be Clemson playing host first, with that contest slated for Aug. 30, 2025. LSU will return the hosting favor on Sept. 5, 2026. These will be the first-ever regular season matchups between the two squads. While they have played thrice previously (LSU holds a 2-1 all-time lead), those three prior contests occurred in bowl action.

UConn redshirt junior RB Donevin O'Reilly sustained a torn ACL during Monday's practice.

Per Huskies HC Randy Edsall, O'Reilly suffered the serious knee injury while taking part in a special teams drill on Monday. It's a cruel blow for the 5-foot-9, 191-pound former walk-on, made all the more so by the fact that O'Reilly had been in line to start following Nate Hopkins' decision to leave the team earlier this month. With Edsall and staff now down two running backs, look for for freshman Zavier Scott to see significant work upcoming, with sophomore Kevin Mensah also in the mix. O'Reilly is now almost certainly done for the season, barring a miraculous comeback.

Wyoming sophomore RB Trey Woods has transitioned to defensive end.

"We think he’s got great promise (at defensive end), and also I think it’s an indication of some of the depth we’ve developed at running back," said HC Craig Bohl, who noted that Woods is "about 218 pounds right now." The sophomore actually led Wyoming in rushing a year ago, when he put up 493 yards and a pair of touchdowns. However, that action came at a rough 3.47 YPC, the second-lowest mark in the FBS among qualifying backs. With Woods having switched positions, the Cowboys figure to lean all the harder on Nico Evans (expected to start) and Kellen Overstreet. Freshman Jevon Bigelow is also a name to watch, though his work will likely be coming in more of a complementary role.

Florida sophomore RB Malik Davis (knee) is expected to be healthy for the team's season-opener against Charleston Southern on Sept. 1.

Fantastic sign that Florida's already given Davis the green light for the start of the campaign at this, the midway point of August camp. The 5-foot-11, 194-pounder aced his rehabilitation this offseason after being sidelined by a season-ending knee injury last October. Davis ended up rushing for 526 yards across seven games before everything went wrong. He adds to a respectable running backs room which includes Jordan Scarlett, Lamical Perine and Adarius Lemons -- all potential positive contributors this year.

Penn State redshirt junior DE Ryan Buchholz has retired due to health concerns.

Buchholz (6'6/258) cited "years of extreme pain" and "multiple back surgeries" as impetus for his retirement. During the past campaign, the redshirt junior registered 18 tackles while appearing in 10 games (six starts). While his statistical contributions have been modest to date, his retirement does leave Penn State scrambling somewhat, as Buchholz was expected to work as starter for the coming campaign. His departure from the active roster figures to mean additional opportunities will be available for Shane Simmons and Shaka Toney as the Nittany Lions reshuffle their deck.

BamaCentral's Christopher Walsh reports that Alabama sophomore RB Najee Harris suffered a lower leg injury during Saturday's scrimmage.

Harris (6'2/230) did not practice on either Monday or Tuesday and was spotted on a scooter (to keep weight off the leg) earlier this week. Walsh passes along that it's unknown at this juncture just what the extent of this injury might be. Crimson Tide HC Nick Saban will hopefully provide a more extensive update when he speaks with reporters on Thursday. Alabama possesses tremendous depth at running back, enough that they'd be able to absorb the blow if Harris needs some additional time to heal up.

LSU redshirt freshman QB Lowell Narcisse will transfer.

Narcisse (6'3/224) had been in competition for starting honors with Joe Burrow, Myles Brennan and Justin McMillan this offseason. A dynamic dual-threat athlete, he was probably the most intriguing signal-caller in this bunch (though still raw on the whole). The redshirt freshman announced his transfer intent on Tuesday night. Following suit on Wednesday would be McMillan. While the sudden departure of two quarterbacks can probably best be described as disquieting, this movement essentially locks Burrow in place as starter at LSU for the coming season, barring a big late push from Brennan. As a redshirt freshman, Narcisse will be required to sit out the 2018 season with his team-to-be unless he opts for a transfer outside the FBS. LSU opens their campaign against Miami on Sept. 2.

Texas redshirt senior RB Tre Watson (knee) has been given full medical clearance.

Watson (5'10/190) had previously been working only as a limited participant in preseason camp. The Cal transfer has been rehabbing from a torn ACL which he suffered last September. Now that he's been given the medical green light to intensify his work in practice, he can begin -- in earnest -- the process of securing a sizable role with the team. He'll be competing with Toneil Carter and Daniel Young for the remainder of camp as Texas readies for its season-opener against a suddenly-embattled Maryland program.

Northwestern redshirt senior QB Clayton Thorson (knee) was an active participant in Tuesday's practice.

Thorson (6'4/220) is still being moved along with caution by Wildcats HC Pat Fitzgerald and staff, but we're beginning to see clear signs that the team is at least attempting to get him in fighting shape for their opener against Purdue on Aug. 30. According to Inside NU's team on-site in Evanston on Tuesday, Thorson "looked comfortable in the pocket," worked the read-option and put in a few scrambles during his drillwork. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely as camp progresses toward its end game. Should Thorson be unable to take the field versus the Boilermakers, the task would fall to one of TJ Green, Aidan Smith or Andrew Marty.

Maryland fired strength and conditioning coach Rick Court.

Court is the first coach to receive his walking papers in the wake of the death of OL Jordan McNair and a bombshell ESPN report released last Friday which detailed numerous alleged abuses and mistreatments of players. He had earlier been placed on administrative leave. It has been determined that McNair passed away due to heat stroke -- his internal body temperature spiked at 106 degrees -- as a result of a late May workout. We would not be surprised to see other staff members likewise lose their jobs in relation to the questionable culture which has arisen under HC D.J. Durkin. Durkin, himself, is currently on paid leave while Maryland investigates the troubling allegations surrounding the program.
