In his return to action, Minnesota sophomore RB Shannon Brooks (foot) ran 13 times for 85 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's victory over Colorado State.

Brooks, who was playing in his first game of the year, broke his foot in August. Brooks came into the summer as the starter but may have fallen slightly behind Rodney Smith following the latter's hot start. The two will platoon.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher says he hasn't spoken to LSU about its coaching vacancy.

"I'm not talking about LSU. No I haven't (had contact) and I'm not talking about it," Fisher told reporters Monday. "We're talking about North Carolina." Fisher won a national championship as LSU's offensive coordinator in 2003. As referenced, the Seminoles host the Tar Heels on Saturday.

Rutgers redshirt senior defensive end Quanzell Lambert is out for the remainder of the season after suffering a right knee injury in Saturday's game against Iowa.

Per NJ.com, Lambert likely isn't a candidate for a sixth year of eligibility because his injury occurred just past the NCAA's rule of 30-percent of games having been played. Lambert was named the team's best defensive lineman by the coaching staff last season.

Nebraska redshirt senior QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. has been "transformed," according to FOX Sports' Stewart Mandel.

Armstrong came into the year with 36 career interception but has posted a 12/1 TD/INT rate in the early going. The undefeated Cornhuskers get Illinois, Indiana and Purdue next. Take care of business in those, they'll be 7-0 when they travel to Camp Randall to play Wisconsin on Oct. 29.

Florida hired Mississippi State AD Scott Stricklin as its new athletic director.

Stricklin replaces Jeremy Foley, who retired following 40 years at the school, including the last 25 as Florida's AD. Stricklin had been leading the Bulldogs' athletics department since 2012.

South Carolina will start QB Brandon McIlwain against Texas A&M this Saturday.

No change here. In Saturday's loss to Kentucky, McIlwain completed 15-of-30 attempts for 177 yards. He helms a toothless offense, but we agree with the decision to hasten McIlwain's development by keeping him in the lineup. South Carolina HC Will Muschamp should be playing for 2017 or 2018. He doesn't have the talent to do much in 2016.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline is thinking about bumping the third-round grade he gave to Michigan junior C Mason Cole entering the season.

The analyst's graded Cole as a tackle, the position he played prior to kicking inside to center this summer to replace Graham Glascow, a Lions third-rounder. Cole was "incredibly impressive" in Saturday's win over Penn State, Pauline wrote, blocking with "great fundamentals, leverage and power" and "effective at the line of scrimmage as well as on the second level." Pauline's takeaway was that "while Cole was a good left tackle prospect, he could be a great center on Sunday."

BookMaker.eu opened Houston HC Tom Herman as the favorite to become LSU's next coach.

Herman is +100, while Florida State's Jimbo Fisher is +250. Rounding out the top five are Texas Tech's Kliff Kingsbury (+1400), TCU's Gary Patterson (+1500) and Louisville's Bobby Petrino (+1700). Les Miles was fired following LSU's last-second loss to Auburn.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah reports that Washington State redshirt junior QB Luke Falk "is one of the most polarizing players in the personnel community."

"There are scouts that love his size and arm talent while others believe he is simply a product of the Mike Leach system," Jeremiah wrote. "I've yet to hear from anyone that is lukewarm (sorry for the pun) on his evaluation." The 6-foot-4, 208-pound redshirt junior has thrown for 1,124 yards with an 11/2 TD/INT ratio in three games.

LSU suspended junior DL Davon Godchaux following his Monday booking on false imprisonment and domestic abuse battery/child endangerment.

Each charge is a misdemeanor. This would be interim coach Ed Orgeron's first big move as boss. Godchaux and his girlfriend, who was also arrested, have conflicting versions of the "short tussle", as it was referred to in the police report. Godchaux's suspension is indefinite.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks thinks Louisville sophomore QB Lamar Jackson has the "potential to surpass" Michael Vick's collegiate career while "[forcing] evaluators to consider him a legitimate franchise quarterback down the road."

"Jackson certainly makes a compelling case to be considered one of the most dynamic dual-threat quarterbacks that I've seen," Brooks wrote. "Jackson has shown dramatic improvement as a passer from the pocket. From his accuracy to his anticipation and timing, the sensational sophomore has become an efficient dart thrower as a passer." Pro Football Focus' Wes Huber and NFL.com's Lance Zierlein have both compared Jackson to Randall Cunningham. Others have likened L-Jax to RGIII or a right-handed Michael Vick. Jackson will be draft eligible after next season.

Rutgers senior WR Janarion Grant's season-ending right ankle injury occurred just past the cut-off to apply for a medical redshirt year.

The NCAA says a player applying for a medical redshirt cannot have participated in more than 30 percent of the season. After playing Iowa, Rutgers is one-third of the way through its 12-game schedule. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound speedster broke his ankle against the Hawkeyes. His collegiate career, barring a miracle, is over.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that redshirt junior WR ArDarius Stewart is day-to-day with a knee injury.

Stewart banged up his knee against Ole Miss two weekends ago and subsequently sat out Saturday's romp-of-a-win over Kent State. Late last week, SEC Country's Marq Burnett speculated that the injury could be severe enough to keep the 6-foot-1, 204-pound redshirt junior from playing against Kentucky this Saturday. For the time being, though, he has not been ruled out for that contest. Prior to sustaining his knee injury, Stewart had snagged 13 passes for 205 yards and a trio of touchdowns.

Alabama HC Nick Saban said that sophomore RB Damien Harris is day-to-day with an ankle injury.

Harris sustained a right ankle injury on Alabama's first drive against Kent State on Saturday. He did not return to that contest and Saban is being predictably tight-lipped as to Harris' overall health. "Day-to-day" is certainly much more encouraging than "questionable" or "doubtful," but there just isn't a ton of information to go on, here.

Oregon received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 ATH Jaylon Redd.

The Ducks have dropped back-to-back contests against Nebraska and Colorado over the past two weekends, making Redd's Monday commitment something of a nice momentary diversion. Oregon has told the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder that they envision utilizing him in similar fashion to Charles Nelson, who has played both corner and wide receiver during his time in the program. "It tells me they want me to show my abilities and not limit me in anything," Redd explained after Oregon initially offered to him. "That’s really good." He might be committed to Oregon, but official visits to other programs are expected, here. He took one to Nebraska earlier this season and is planning to visit (in either official or unofficial capacity) UCLA, USC, Arizona and Arizona State before all is said and done. He ranks as Rivals' No. 98 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle.
