Baylor senior WR Antwan Goodley left Sunday's game against SMU with a bruised leg.

With Baylor up 31-0 midway through the second quarter, coach Art Briles took the opportunity to yank QB Bryce Petty, Goodley, and a few other starters. Goodley's injury doesn't sound serious, but we'll update you when more information is known. The stud wide receiver finished without a catch. That probably won't happen again this season.

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White caught nine passes for 143 yards and one touchdown in the school's 33-23 loss to Alabama.

The 6-foot-3, 209 pound White had an impressive game showing off his NFL-ready frame and physicality, as he overpowered Alabama defenders all day. The West Virginia prospect White had a ridiculous diving catch in the back of the end zone for the Mountaineers' first score. Last season, White finished third on the team with 35 receptions for 507 yards and five touchdowns, and it looks like he's on his way to a breakout season, if he remains Clint Trickett's favorite target.

Washington State redshirt senior Connor Halliday completed 40-for-56 attempts for 532 passing yards, five touchdowns and one interception in Thursday's 41-38 loss to Rutgers.

This was a tight game throughout -- with the Cougars biggest deficit being 11 points -- and Mike Leach, as is his wont, was completely indifferent to a ground attack. Washington State had just nine rushing attempts that weren't credited to Halliday, and had 14 carries for six yards overall. Halliday was a little shaky in the first quarter, but was superb in the next two, going 13-for-15 to start the second half. Halliday set a Cougars' record with 4,597 passing yards last season and tied Ryan Leaf's single-season record of 34 touchdown passes. He very well could exceed both numbers in 2014, while also slashing his 22 interceptions.

Auburn junior WR D'haquille Williams caught nine passes for 154 yards and one touchdown in the school's 45-21 win over Arkansas.

This was Williams' debut for the school, and it was a good one. The JUCO transfer mostly played out of the slot but displayed positioning, contested catches and speed to pick up yards on the ground. He could be the next one and done receiver prospect, however, it is very early. Expect Auburn to throw more often this season.
Aug 31 - 6:50 PM

USC freshman WR JuJu Smith caught four balls for 123 yards in the first half of Saturday's blowout victory over Fresno State.

The 6-foot-2 wideout didn't have a reception in the second half, but the Trojans more or less called off the dogs with a 31-7 halftime lead. Smith did a little bit of everything on Saturday night. He made a nice sliding catch, he ripped off a long gain off of a screen pass, and he fought back for a ball and then broke a tackle. If he keeps this up, Smith and Nelson Agholor will form one of the nation's most dangerous receiving duos in Steve Sarkisian's breakneck offense.
Aug 31 - 6:41 PM

USC redshirt junior QB Cody Kessler completed 25-of-37 passes for 394 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday night's 52-13 romp over Fresno State.

Kessler, who didn't throw an interception, added 28 yards and a touchdown on the ground. In new HC Steve Sarkisian's up-tempo shotgun offense (the Trojans ran a school- and Pac-12-record 105 plays), Kessler could be in line for a monster season. Kessler isn't an elite prospect -- he goes 6-foot-1, 210 pounds and doesn't possess a howitzer -- but he's the type of efficient collegiate signal-caller that can put up video game numbers in the right system and forge a long NFL career as a steady backup (TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded him as a Rds. 6-7 prospect last month). He threw for 2,968 yards with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions last season, and is poised for more in 2014.

Former TCU redshirt sophomore DE Devonte Fields is now playing for Trinity Valley Community College.

Fields has had a whirlwind of an offseason, but it seems that he will actually play football this season. After multiple off-field encounters, Fields and TCU permanently separated, however he was not eligible to transfer to any FBS or FCS program. Fields should obviously destroy the competition at the JUCO level, but there are multiple layers to his evaluation.
Aug 31 - 6:18 PM

Florida State redshirt sophomore DE Chris Casher was suspended prior to Saturday's opener against Oklahoma State because of an "academic-related matter."

"Chris Casher is being withheld pending review of an academic-related matter," a statement from the school read. "Student privacy will not allow us to expand any further." The 6-foot-4, 250-pounder would have made his first career start against the Pokes after appearing in 13 games as a redshirt freshman. Casher's career is now at a crossroads. He was previously placed on probation for one year for two violations of the university's student honor code for his alleged involvement in the sexual assault case centering on Jameis Winston.

Auburn redshirt junior WR Sammie Coates was held to one catch for 18 yards in the school's 45-21 win over Arkansas.

Coates was touted by many as one of the top receiver prospects in the country, and he still might be. However, the pass catcher dropped an obvious touchdown on a post route in the fourth quarter and did not otherwise flash. Perhaps he is generating more attention from defenses this season. Regardless, Coates is a prospect worth keeping tabs on.
Aug 31 - 6:06 PM

Stanford junior WR Ty Mongtomery caught five passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in the school's 45-0 win over UC Davis.

Montgomery added one punt return touchdown of 60 yards. Rotoworld contributor Cian Fahey has compared Montgomery to Tedd Ginn, namely due to Montgomery displaying great straight-line speed and return ability. His pace during breaking routes needs to improve.
Aug 31 - 5:35 PM

Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Barry J. Sanders led the school in rushing against UC Davis with 43 yards on seven carries.

Sanders added two receptions for eight yards. Barry's son was listed as the school's co-backup ball carrier, but he should see more opportunities this year than he did in 2013.
Aug 31 - 3:52 PM

Oregon State redshirt senior QB Sean Mannion completed 26 of 45 attempts for 328 yards and a touchdown in the school's 29-14 win over Portland State.

Mannion added a rushing touchdown to his box score. Many evaluators bring up Mannion's name among the top prospects at the position, and his production with receivers like Brandin Cooks and Markus Wheaton is often cited, but we don't view him that highly. Mannion's biggest issue his how he deals with interior pressure, a common theme with college quarterbacks.
Aug 31 - 3:35 PM

Miami (OH) senior QB Andrew Hendrix completed 24 of 49 attempts for 318 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the school's 42-27 loss to Marshall.

Hendrix opened the game with a fumble int he first quarter, but some might argue he outplayed Rakeem Cato the rest of the way. The Notre Dame transfer looked most comfortable from the gun in empt sets, lobbing passes to receivers along the sideline.
Aug 31 - 2:59 PM

Marshall senior QB Rakeem Cato completed 21 of 33 attempts for 264 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 42-27 win over Miami (OH).

Cato added another rushing touchdown. All three of the quarterback's passing touchdowns were on throws of 11 yards or less. Cato was sacked on multiple occasions out of an empty backfield, and his offensive line allowed pressure almost immediately on a few instances.
Aug 31 - 2:34 PM

Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley rushed for 198 yards and three touchdowns on just 15 carries in the school's 45-21 win over Clemson.

Gurley added a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. The bruising running back frequently had big alleys to run through, but he took advantage of them thanks to great vision, patience and speed. His lateral jump cuts are explosive and Gurley absolutely has the strength to be first contact. Do not be surprised if Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Gurley as a top 10 prospect overall.
