Washington State HC Mike Leach has no plans to pursue the potential job opening at Nebraska.

It's no surprise that Leach would deny interest, because declaring interest in a job that isn't actually open would be uncouth at this point. Still, with Bill Moos the new Athletic Director at Nebraska and Cornhuskers coach Mike Riley not exactly winning over the crowd, it shouldn't surprise anyone if Leach is one of the first names that Moos calls.

Arkansas senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) is not expected to play in next week's game against Alabama on Saturday.

Allen wasn't able to play against Alabama, and he's not expected back for their contest with the Tigers. In his place, the Razorbacks will start redshirt freshman Cole Kelley.

Former Ole Miss HC Houston Nutt has settled his lawsuit with the university.

Nutt infamously changed his lawsuit from asking for an undisclosed amount of money and an apology to just asking for the latter. It appears the Rebels were ready to make that apology. It's probably safe to say that he won't be a candidate for their coaching job this winter.

Purdue HC Jeff Brohm is "hopeful" that junior WR Terry Wright (shoulder) will return Saturday against Rutgers.

Wright didn't travel with the team to Saturday's game at Wisconsin after suffering the injury the week before against Minnesota. If Brohm's optimistic about his odds pf returning against the Scarlet Knights, there's no reason we shouldn't be as well.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said he will take a cautious approach with junior QB Kelly Bryant (ankle) during the bye week.

Bryant entered Friday's game against Syracuse with a sprained ankle, and he suffered a concussion during it. "Hopefully by Wednesday, he's out there moving around, but we're going to be really cautious with him this week and really get him dialed in on what we're doing game plan wise," Swinney said. "Come Wednesday, I think we'll have a much better feel for what he's going to do practice wise Wednesday and Thursday, and then they'll be off for the weekend." Clemson next takes the field against Georgia Tech on Oct. 28.

Minnesota HC P.J. Fleck declined to name a starting quarterback for Saturday against Illinois, but the Minneapolis Star Tribune and St. Paul Pioneer Press both report that signs point to redshirt sophomore QB Demry Croft drawing the start.

"What I saw out there in the last 10 minutes is a team I couldn’t wait to see!" Fleck said of Croft in the postgame news conference. "I couldn’t wait to see that!" Croft came on in relief of Conor Rhoda on Saturday against Michigan State to rally the Gophers for three fourth-quarter touchdown passes to Tyler Johnson. Minnesota fell just short, losing 30-27. Croft went 8-for-14 for 131 yards and three scores in sum. "I felt like, this probably would be a good time to be able to see what Demry can do," Fleck said Sunday. "And once he went in there, he did a really nice job." It's been a wild ride for Croft, who Fleck suspended on Sept. 12 for an unspecified violation of team rules. Croft missed two games before returning for last week’s game at Purdue. And now he may be the team's starter going forward. Croft has a much higher ceiling than Rhoda, and he provides a dual-threat element that Rhoda lacks. We were surprised when Rhoda won the job out of

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter believes Western Michigan senior T Chukwuma Okorafor "could challenge Notre Dame's Mike McGlinchey for the title of top tackle in the senior class."

Per Reuter, Okorafor is a better prospect than former teammate, Taylor Moton, who was selected in the second round of the 2017 draft. "He has natural bend and foot quickness that belie his massive build (6-5, 355 pounds)," Reuter wrote. "He's also still learning the game, as his family emigrated from Botswana to the U.S. in 2010." The analyst believes Okorafor could develop into an NFL starter at left tackle.

Iowa State redshirt senior LB Joel Lanning "absolutely will" have an opportunity to play in the NFL at linebacker, according to an NFL scout.

"You'll have a year of game tape, he'll have individual workouts and he'll nail the interview," he said. "Someone will take him, and he will play in this league." Lanning spent four years at quarterback before transitioning to middle linebacker this year. He's unexpectedly starred at that position, while also moonlighting as a sub-package quarterback. "These are the type of players you want on a roster, those glue guys," another NFL scout said. "He knows what he's doing out there, and he can play [middle linebacker]. He absolutely can. But he also has that charismatic intangible of working because he wants to work and be better—not because he has to. With some players these days, that's about as rare as it gets."

Washington junior CB Jordan Miller will miss the remainder of the season with a broken ankle.

Miller, like stud LT Trey Adams, suffered his season-ending injury in Saturday's devastating loss to ARizona State. HC Chris Petersen indicated that Miller’s ankle injury is "the exact same" as the ankle injuries that previously cost the team the services of WR Chico McClatcher and TE David Ajamu. Miller (6'1/184) had already proven to be one of the Pac-12's best corners in his first season as a starter.

Washington junior T Trey Adams will miss the remainder of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Adams suffered the injury in Saturday's upset loss to Arizona State. It's a devastating loss for the Huskies. The 6-foot-8, 327-pound Adams was a first-team all-Pac-12 selection in 2016 and considered a potential first-round pick. Washington is on bye this week, allowing them to pick up the pieces after one of the worst weekends the program has had in the Chris Peterson era.

South Carolina sophomore RB Rico Dowdle will undergo surgery on a fractured bone in his left leg.

Per Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp, Dowdle will have the operation later this week. Dowdle will miss most of the remaining season, if not all of it. The 5-foot-11, 220-pound Dowdle, who was injured in the second quarter of Saturday's 15-9 victory at Tennessee, was the Gamecocks' leading rusher last season. He'd gained 206 yards on 60 carries this season.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter compares Hawaii senior RB Diocemy Saint Juste to Doug Martin at Boise State.

The 5-foot-8, 185-pound senior is coming off a huge 202-yard showing against San Jose State. He broke out with 1,006 yards rushing last season, but that was just the beginning. In only seven games this year, Saint Juste boasts 1,094 yards and six touchdowns on the ground and and a 9-67-1 line through the air. "This Rainbow Warrior's low center of gravity makes him difficult to tackle, but he also consistently lowers his pads on contact, driving forward for additional yardage," Reuter wrote. "Saint Juste makes defenders miss in the hole and in the open field. Once he's free, he possesses the burst to take full advantage."

Cincinnati junior QB Hayden Moore suffered a minor elbow injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 33-3 loss to USF before he was pulled for Ross Trail.

Moore was playing poorly and the game had gotten out of hand by the time Trail entered, so it would have been reasonable to assume that Luke Fickell made the move to get Trail some field time late in a blowout. After the game, Fickell clarified that Moore sustained a "minor" elbow injury and that he "didn't want to take any chances."

Miami HC Mark Richt refuted an ESPN report from over the weekend that senior CB Dee Delaney (undisclosed) is "out 6-8 weeks" with an injury.

"It’s more day-to-day," Richt said. "I don’t even know where that number came from." Delaney missed Saturday's win over Georgia Tech with his injury.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter believes Utah State senior CB Jalen Davis will "be a starting nickelback in the NFL."

"I loved Davis' game coming into the year, and now he's tied for the FBS lead with 5 interceptions, returning 3 to the house, in 6 games," Reuter wrote last week, prior to Utah State's game against Wyoming. "The four-year starter is a tough player and a ballhawk." Over the summer, Davis was named Athlon Sports Second-Team All-Mountain West and Phil Steele Third-Team All-Mountain West.
