Northwestern junior WR Flynn Nagel had the most yards (220) from the slot among FBS receivers in Week 7.

Nagel (5'11/181) had 53 more yards from the slot than K.J. Hill, who was second on the week. The junior receiver has back-to-back weeks with at least 10 receptions and 110 yards, and he is now up to 48-622-2 on the season. Nagel will look to extend his streak against a struggling Rutgers team next week.

Sam Houston State senior WR Davion Davis caught six passes for 68 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 42-28 win over Northwestern State.

Davis (6'0/185) caught four touchdown passes from within 21-yards despite being a smaller receiver. He was made to score touchdowns for the Bearkats. Davis now has eight touchdowns this year after scoring 10 and 17 touchdowns the last two seasons. With yesterday's game, Davis now has over 3,000 career receiving yards.

According to Bruce Feldman, Texas is optimistic sophomore QB Sam Ehlinger (shoulder sprain) will play against Oklahoma State on October 27th.

The sophomore quarterback suffered a Grade 1 AC shoulder sprain to his right arm against Baylor on Saturday, but Texas has their bye week right now, which is giving Ehlinger enough time to heal up ahead of their next game. If Ehlinger suffers a setback, then Shane Buechele will draw the start. Texas is now all the way up to No. 7 in the country.

Arizona State senior QB Manny Wilkins (leg) practiced on Sunday and will be fine for next Thursday's game against Stanford.

Wilkins didn't practice last Wednesday during their bye week after injuring his leg in the fourth quarter of October 6th's game against Colorado. The senior quarterback will bring an 11/1 TD/INT ratio into the PAC-12 battle. Stanford's defense has only allowed 1.2 passing touchdowns per game this season.

Idaho State redshirt senior RB James Madison has 650 yards and 10 touchdowns through six games.

Madison (5'11/227) has already doubled his 2017 touchdown output and is on pace to crush last year's 933 rushing yards. The redshirt senior looks comfortable as a ball catcher despite his bigger frame. Madison has caught 30 passes for 274 receiving yards over his last 16 games. Against Cal earlier this season, Madison ran for 63 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for eight yards. You can watch his 2017 highlights in the link below.

Bowling Green has fired Mike Jinks and promoted DC Carl Pelini to interim head coach.

Jinks was fired after leading the Falcons to a 2-10 season last year and starting this season 1-6. Pelini joined the Bowling Green coaching staff as defensive coordinator in December 2017, and it's been a terrible season for him. The Falcons are 129th out of 130 teams in points allowed. The university has already began looking for the long-term answer at head coach, but Pelini is likely the head coach for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Bowling Green has fired head coach Mike Jinks.

The Falcons moved to 1-6 after losing 42-35 to Western Michigan on Saturday. Finks has served as the head coach since being promoted from running backs coach in late 2015. Before being named head coach, Jinks had only three years of college experience with most of his coaching coming within Texas high school football. Finks finished with seasonal records of 4-8, 2-10, and 1-6. Defensive coordinator Carl Pelini will serve as the interim head coach.

UNLV senior RB Lexington Thomas exited Saturday's game against Utah State with a head injury.

Thomas (5'9/170) is likely in the concussion protocol but that's unofficial at the moment without confirmation from the team. The Rebels have a short week with a Friday night game, so Thomas should be considered questionable, especially if he did suffer a concussion. If he's unable to suit up, UNLV will lean on Charles Williams (11 carries yesterday), Evan Owens (6), and Xzaviar Campbell (6).
Oct 14 - 3:07 PM

San Diego redshirt senior QB Anthony Lawrence has 2,031 passing yards with a 16/4 TD/INT ratio through six games.

Lawrence (6'1/195) is second in touchdown passes and third in passing yards among all FCS-level quarterbacks. As a junior in 2017, the Torero quarterback threw for 33 touchdowns with just three interceptions. He might be able to beat his career-high for touchdown passes this year if he finishes strong, but he has a career high 9.1 YPA right now even if he doesn't get to 33 touchdowns.
Oct 14 - 2:57 PM

Samford redshirt senior QB Devlin Hodges is averaging 377 passing yards and 3.4 touchdowns per game through seven contests.

Hodges (6'1/210) has been putting up huge numbers for three straight seasons. He's put up back-to-back seasons with at least 3,900 passing yards and 31 touchdowns, and he's on pace to make it a three peat. The redshirt senior is leading all FCS-level quarterbacks in yards and touchdowns by wide margins -- he's up 534 passing yards and eight touchdowns on the second best FCS quarterback.

October 14th's AP Poll: 1) Alabama, 2) Ohio State, 3) Clemson, 4) Notre Dame, 5) LSU, 6) Michigan, 7) Texas, 8) Georgia, 9) Oklahoma, 10) UCF

After picking up big wins, LSU climbed eight spots and Michigan climbed six spots to crack the Top-10. There are five teams with one loss ahead of undefeated UCF. West Virginia dropped to No. 13 after losing to Iowa State, Washington dropped to No. 15 after losing to Oregon, and Penn State dropped to N0. 18 after losing to Michigan State. The Spartans (No. 24) are joined by Iowa (No. 19) and Washington State (No. 25) as teams who are in the Top-25 who weren't last week. San Diego State, Appalachian State, and Utah State all received votes, but they didn't make it in.

Northwestern State redshirt junior WR Jazz Ferguson has 34 receptions for 671 yards and six touchdowns through six games.

Ferguson (6'5/223) has the size to get NFL looks, but he's also averaging 19.7 yards per reception in his first season with the Demons. We shouldn't be surprised that Ferguson is shredding his FCS-level opponents since he originally played for LSU before being arrested, suspended, and leaving the program. Ferguson will have to continue to dominate to get looks at the next level with his shaky past.
Oct 14 - 2:14 PM

UC Davis senior WR Keelan Doss caught 13 passes for 131 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 44-37 win over Idaho State.

He also ran the ball twice for 25 yards. Doss (6'3/206) is one of the few FCS receivers with a chance to make an NFL roster in 2019. The senior has been the Aggies consistent chain mover and he was just that on Saturday, but Doss will need to prove that he can beat defenders over the top since he's averaging a low 10 yards per reception this season. You can see his 2017 highlight reel in the link below.
Oct 14 - 2:02 PM

North Dakota State senior QB Easton Stick completed 11-of-20 passes for 123 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 34-7 win over Western Illinois.

Stick (6'2/221) isn't putting up the crazy passing statistics of some other FCS quarterbacks this season because the No. 1 ranked Bison are just blowing teams out, but he is still averaging 9.1 yards per pass attempt. The senior quarterback is also a threat on the ground with his seven rushing touchdowns and 4.9 yards per carry. Overall, Stick is putting together a senior campaign that should give him a shot at becoming an NFL quarterback.

Iowa State junior RB David Montgomery forced 14 missed tackles on 28 carries against West Virginia, according to Pro Football Focus.

Montgomery (5'11/216) hans't been fully healthy this year, but he looked great in the upset win on Saturday. The junior back rushed for 189 yards (6.75 YPC) with many yards coming after forcing missed tackles. Pro Football Focus said, "A healthy Montgomery is as good as any running back in the country." Montgomery is up to 523 yards and four touchdowns on the year.
