Wake Forest redshirt sophomore QB Jamie Newman completed 22-of-33 passes for 297 yards with three touchdowns in a 27-23 victory over NC State on Thursday.

He also ran for 44 yards. A huge upset, and a deserved one. Newman (6'4/240) was making his first ever start for the Demon Deacons on Thursday, but you wouldn't have known it. There were some struggles early on -- there were struggles for both teams in the first period, it was not particularly pretty -- but to say he improved is an understatement. He threw a beautiful touchdown pass to Greg Dortch to get Wake within three, and then after a defensive stop, he led the Deacons on the game-winning touchdown drive punctuated by a 32-yard pass to Jack Freudenthal. The Demon Deacons are now one win away from bowl eligibility, and they'll try to get it next Saturday against division-leading Pittsburgh.

Oklahoma State redshirt senior QB Taylor Cornelius was named the Walter Camp Player of the Week.

Cornelius entered the fourth quarter with three touchdowns, and he added three more in the final 15 minutes to lead the Cowboys to a comeback 45-41 win over West Virginia. The redshirt senior completed 30-of-46 passes for 338 yards when the dust settled, and he gets one more chance to make magic happen (vs. TCU) before Oklahoma State heads to a bowl game. Cornelius has 36 total touchdowns to just 10 interceptions this season.

Latest AP Rankings: 1) Alabama, 2) Clemson, 3) Notre Dame, 4) Michigan, 5) Georgia, 6) Oklahoma, 7) Washington State, 8) UCF, 8) LSU, and 10) Ohio State.

The six seven teams are unchanged, but Washington State climbed a spot after putting up 55 points in the first half against Arizona last night. Washington State would be undefeated right now if not for a silly loss to USC earlier in the year. The biggest news is UCF and LSU tying for the No. 8 spot, which means UCF climbed over Ohio State, who narrowly beat Maryland on Saturday. The biggest risers are Kentucky (No. 17), Utah (No. 18), Northwestern (No. 20), and Mississippi State (No. 22), while the biggest fallers are West Virginia (No. 12), Syracuse (No. 19), and Iowa State (No. 25). Fresno State just missed out on cracking the Top 25, but Army (No. 23) is in for the first time since 1996.

According to Football Scoop, Texas State has fired HC Everett Withers.

Withers lasted just three seasons as the Bobcats' head coach, and he will finish with a 7-28 overall record since he will not coach the season finale against Arkansas State. The news comes just one day after his offense threw five interceptions and only scored one touchdown, which sent the team to 3-8 on the season. The former Urban Meyer assistant head coach will likely re-surface as he only is 55-years old, but there is a chance that his next position will be as a coordinator.

Kansas has hired Les Miles as head coach.

Kansas University athletic director Jeff Long took to Twitter to make the announcement, listing Miles' experience as a head coach and strong recruiting reputation as reasons why the Jayhawks went in his direction. While Les Miles does bring a big name to the Kansas football program, there are concerns about his ability to adjust to the Big 12, especially with much weaker recruits than he was used to at LSU. Miles has reportedly agreed to a five-year contract worth $2,275,000 annually, with additional retention bonuses due in 2020 and 2022. Miles said, "We will bring Jayhawk football back." Let's see who he can bring on to his coaching staff.

Colorado has fired head coach Mike MacIntyre.

The decision is effective immediately, so he will not be around for the season finale against Cal. MacIntyre was about to finish his sixth season, but his team has regressed since they went the 2016 Pac-12 Championship Game. The final straw came on Saturday at home when Colorado lost to Utah, 30-7, which sent MacIntyre to 30-44 overall (.405 winning percentage). Since he has three years remaining on his contract, the university will owe MacIntyre $10.3 million if he is fired without cause. Colorado athletic director Rick George has expressed interest in a candidate with a "recognizable name with previous head-coaching experience" but the university has yet to name an interim head coach.

Washington State senior QB Gardner Minshew completed 43-of-55 passes for 473 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 69-28 win against Arizona.

The mustachioed graduate transfer was on his way to special things early on. He and the Cougars held a 55-14 lead at halftime, with Minshew piling up 311 yards and five touchdowns by the break. The Wazzu QB has been ridiculous, throwing for 319 or more yards in all 11 of his outings while tossing two or more touchdowns in 10 of his starts. He'll look to keep it rolling next weekend in the Apple Cup against rival Washington.

North Carolina freshman RB Javonte Williams rushed for 93 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries in Saturday's 49-26 win over Western Carolina.

Williams (5'11/205) entered the game with a whole 48 rushing yards, so calling Saturday's performance a breakout game would be under selling it. The freshman back cleaned up near the goal line, as he converted three attempts for touchdowns. When he wasn't scoring short yardage touchdowns, Williams was picking up yards (5.5 YPC). With the season essentially over, the Tar Heels could continue to give their freshman some reps against North Carolina State next week.

Ole Miss junior WR A.J. Brown caught nine passes for 212 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 36-29 overtime loss to Vanderbilt.

Brown (6'1/225) showed off his first-round abilities once again on a night where he broke his career high for receiving yards. If you want to see what he has to offer, watch the video in the link below. Brown caught a short pass, then broke a tackle, before outrunning the Vanderbilt defense for an 84-yard touchdown. It's plays like this that will get him drafted high in the upcoming NFL Draft. Brown gets one more regular season game (Mississippi State) to showcase his skills.

Ole Miss senior QB Jordan Ta'amu completed 32-of-51 passes for 457 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 36-29 overtime loss to Vanderbilt.

This was a tough loss for the Rebels, who failed to score on their only overtime possession, but it was another big yardage game for Ta'amu. The senior quarterback gets the privilege of throwing the ball to A.J. Brown and DaMarkus Lodge, who combined for 329 yards and two touchdowns, but Ta'amu is a playmaker in his own right. On the season, Ta'amu has averaged 9.7 yards per pass attempt, and he will look to finish off a strong regular season against Mississippi State next week.
Nov 18 - 12:10 AM

UCF junior QB McKenzie Milton completed 13-of-25 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for a short touchdown in Saturday's 38-13 win over Cincinnati.

The game started out in ignoble fashion for the Knights, with Milton fumbling at his own goal line, a fumble which Cincinnati recovered for a touchdown. That occurred with a little under five minutes gone off the first-quarter clock. The junior signal-caller would rebound from his shaky beginning, though, rushing for a three-yard touchdown before that quarter's end and then proceeding to hit on a pair of passing touchdowns in the second quarter and one more in the third. Through nine games played, Milton has now accounted for 33 total touchdowns. With Saturday's victory, the Knights clinched their berth in the AAC Championship Game. They will square off for conference supremacy with the winner of next weekend's showdown between Memphis and Houston.
Nov 17 - 11:56 PM

Vanderbilt senior QB Kyle Shurmur completed 22-of-34 passes for 191 yards and three touchdowns with one interception in Saturday's 36-29 overtime win over Ole Miss.

Shurmur led the Commodores into overtime, and then he found wide receiver Kalija Lipscomb for a five-yard touchdown that ended up being the game winning score. The touchdown pass was No. 60 for his career, which gives him the Vanderbilt career passing touchdown record previously held by Jay Cutler. On the season, Shurmur has 20 passing touchdowns and just five interceptions, which is keeping NFL eyes on the senior quarterback. Shurmur will get one more collegiate game next week against the Vols before he heads to the Draft.
