North Carolina confirmed that the cancelation of Saturday's game against UCF will not change the timetable on the ongoing suspensions of seven players.

The logic, here, is that the suspensions were set for a percentage of the season -- 30% -- rather than an exact number of games on the schedule. The suspended players in question, here, will be first eligible to return when the Tar Heels take on Miami on Sept. 27. Most notable among them is QB Chazz Surratt, who could push for starts once he's eligible to return. All told, 13 Tar Heel football players were hit with suspensions of varying length in early August due to their decisions to sell school-issued shoes.

Notre Dame junior WR Miles Boykin submitted his name to the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

A submission for evaluation does not automatically mean a draft declaration will be forthcoming, but should be viewed as a sign that Boykin is at least considering a potential NFL jump. The 6-foot-4, 228-pound wideout made statistical noise after Notre Dame replaced QB Brandon Wimbush with Ian Book midway through the season and ultimately finished the regular season the owner of a 54-803-8 receiving line. His most obvious plus-trait for NFL purposes comes in his pro-ready size. We'll see on his athletic testing marks.

Wisconsin redshirt senior LB T.J. Edwards will play in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 27.

Edwards (6'1/242) admitted that he had contemplated sitting out this showdown with Miami, but said that "it is important that I play in this game and finish this thing off right." The redshirt senior noted that it would have been a somewhat bitter, anticlimactic way for him to go out on a loss to Minnesota, sustained at the end of the regular season. Edwards finished the prebowl campaign having recorded 103 tackles (10.5 for loss), three sacks, a pair of interceptions and a pair of passes defended. He is as active a linebacker as you'll see, one with a killer nose for the ball -- the Wisconsin standout has picked off nine passes for his career. As hearty as that total may be, The Draft Network's Kyle Crabbs writes that Edwards "does not have a great deal of range" in coverage and "[i]s not going to match-up well in man to man due to athletic restrictions" once he hits the NFL in the spring.

Louisville hired North Carolina State OL coach Dwayne Leford to be the new offensive coordinator.

Ledford will work under Scott Satterfield, who replaces Bobby Petrino as head coach of the Cardinals. The former NFL center spent the last three years as the offensive line coach of the Wolf Pack, but prior to that worked with Satterfield as offensive line coach at Appalachian State. He was also an NFL center for seven seasons. Expect Louisville to be a ground-heavy team in 2019 and beyond.

Oklahoma's offensive line was given the Joe Moore Award.

The award goes to the top offensive line in the country, and it's very hard to argue that another line deserves this. It helps Oklahoma put up 49.5 points per game and average 578 yards per contest. Two of the starters -- Dru Samia and Ben Powers -- are going to be featured in the Senior Bowl, and all five of their starters have a chance to play at the next level. We're excited to see how they handle the ridiculousness that is the Alabama defense.

Kent State junior WR Antwan Dixon was one of the winners of the inaugural Mayo Clinic Comeback Player of the Year award.

The other winners: Dartmouth defensive lineman Seth Simmer and Carson-Newman running back Antonio Wimbush. The award goes to college football players from FBS, FCS and lower divisions who overcome injury, illness or other challenges to return to the field. Dixon missed the previous two years because of aplastic anemia; a rare blood disease in which bone marrow ceases to produce blood. He was able to play in every game this season, and finished with 52 receptions for 532 yards and two touchdowns.

San Diego State redshirt sophomore T Tyler Roemer declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Roemer played in only two games for the Aztecs in 2018, as he was suspended by the university and then removed from the roster altogether on November 26. The 6-foot-7, 315-pound tackle will have obvious questions to answer about the suspension, but he did flash next-level talent with San Diego State, and Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline stamped him with a fifth-round grade coming into the year. He could be a steal in the late rounds because of his size, but again, there's going to have to be a lot of homework done.

Multiple sources tell Kyle Rowland of the Toledo Blade that Ohio State is the favorite for Georgia freshman QB Justin Fields if he transfers.

An earlier report noted that Florida State and Oklahoma were potential transfer destinations, but based on what Rowland is hearing from multiple sources, it sounds like the Buckeyes would be the top option. It's also been reported that Fields has hired Tom Mars, the attorney who helped Shea Patterson gain immediate eligibility for Michigan. Assuming Dwayne Haskins enters the NFL Draft, Fields could be the immediate starter for the Buckeyes in 2019; although if he gains eligibility he'd certainly be the favorites at Florida State or an Oklahoma team without Kyler Murray. Stay tuned.

Former Ball State redshirt junior QB Riley Neal is transferring to Vanderbilt.

Neal (6'6/225) will be eligible immediately -- he is a graduate transfer -- and should be at least in the running for the starting spot in 2019 with Kyle Shurmur graduating. At Ball State, Neal had his struggles, but he does enter the university with 34 games of experience. As a junior in 2018, Neal completed just 57.9 percent of his passes while averaging only 5.7 yards per pass attempt and 1.8 total touchdowns per game. Perhaps elevated talent and a new system will lead to a better statistical season in 2019.

USA Today's Dan Wolken notes the foundation for Justin Fields' potential appeal for 2019 eligibility "could be" based around the racist remarks made by a Georgia student-athlete towards Fields.

Fields will have to build a case to win his appeal for 2019 eligibility if he ultimately decides to transfer, and basing it around the racist comments made by dismissed Georgia baseball player Adam Sasser would certainly be a strong case. In fact, Wolken believes it would be a strong enough case to win his appeal given how lenient the NCAA has been on waivers recently. We are still multiple steps away from all of this speculation -- Fields still hasn't told Georgia he is transferring -- but Fields could end up starting at Ohio State, Oklahoma, Florida State, or other universities as soon as 2019 if everything breaks his way.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love will not play in the Sun Bowl.

Love (5'10/202) will instead focus on the NFL Draft, and it's without a doubt the correct decision for him. So much of Love's draft grade will be injury related and risking further damage in the bowl game would be a potential detriment to his draft stock. Love has shown a ton of explosion at times -- he averaged 8.1 YPC on 263 attempts in 2017 -- but that was stolen from him this year while playing on a bummed ankle. The Draft Network's Benjamin Solak notes that Love is being viewed as a Day 3 selection at the moment, but Love could beat that assessment if he can show NFL doctors that his ankle injuries aren't an issue moving forward.
Dec 17 - 7:27 PM

Alabama HC Nick Saban told reporters that sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from his ankle injury.

"He’s been able to take a lot of reps," Saban said. "He’s been able to throw the ball from the pocket. He can run." Saban also noted that he's not 100 percent in terms of change-of-direction runs, but that he's already going full speed on the treadmill. Tagovailoa still has another 12 days before he faces off against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, and at this point, it would be a major surprise if he wasn't behind center for that semifinal match.
