Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 16-of-31 passes for 235 yards and two interceptions.

Wallace was a big part of the end of Ole Miss' playoff hopes. He missed two series with an ankle injury and wasn't particularly effective when he was part of the play. His worst play of the game came on a lofted pass to the end zone that was picked off for a 100-yard interception return TD. A scout recently said that Wallace had a tendency of "burning down cities" by constantly trying to force plays that aren't there. This game won't do much to reassure the evaluating community.

ECU senior WR Justin Hardy broke Ryan Broyles' FBS record of 349 career receptions in Saturday's 34-6 win over Tulane.

Hardy came into the game needing just four catches to surpass Broyles. He ended up with nine receptions for 104 yards to put him at 355 career catches. The senior has a few more games to pad his shiny new record. Fittingly, Hardy didn't bust anything longer than 21 yards in the game. The senior's a consummate possession receiver who uses his excellent body control and sure hands to move the chains. He's viewed as a mid-round draft selection, where he could find a career in the NFL working out of the slot, something he's already shown a great ability to do at the college level.

Utah junior RB Devonatae Booker rushed 23 times for 142 yards in Saturday's 42-10 loss to Arizona.

Booker didn't score a touchdown in the contest. He was Utah's only real offensive weapon, as they had just 143 yards passing (with three interceptions) as a team. Booker's long in the game went for 61 yards. In the previous two games, Booker had caught 17 passes for 131 yards, but he was held to just four catches for eight yards by the Wildcats. So long as he's not fumbling, Booker's a dynamic back who creates space in both the running and passing game. An NFL scout compared him to Arian Foster in October.

Georgia freshman RB Nick Chubb rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries in Saturday's 55-9 win over Charleston Southern.

It's time to stop saying that Nick Chubb does a nice Todd Gurley impersonation. Nick Chubb does a nice Nick Chubb impersonation. Chubb has run for 100+ yards in six straight games and and is averaging 6.8 YPC. The baby Bulldog chomped off 83 of his 113 yards with one play on the team's second possession, the longest run by a Georgia player since Tim Worley had an 89-yarder back in 1985. Chubb's now rushed for 1,152 yards and 10 touchdowns despite the fact that he has only started five games for the team.

Oregon true freshman RB Royce Freeman had 17 carries for 105 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over Colorado.

Freeman became the first true freshman runner at Oregon to break the 1,000-yard mark. He's averaging 5.6 YPC and now has four games with 100+ yards on the ground. Freeman's obviously not draft-eligible as of yet, but NFL analysts like Bruce Feldman are already saying that his overall size (6-foot, 229 pounds) and style of running could translate better to the pros than that of more diminutive runners from previous Duck teams.

Oregon redshirt junior QB Marcus Mariota completed 24-of-32 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 44-10 win over Colorado.

Mariota just keeps on truckin' along toward a Heisman and possible Top-3 draft selection. On Saturday, he broke the Pac-12 single-season record for total TDs with 42. It had previously been set by USC's Matt Barkley in 2011. In addition to his 323 yards through the air, Mariota also added 73 on the ground. He showed off his effortless speed on a 46-yard touchdown run off read-option at the end of the first quarter. Mariota simply took the ball, tucked it and ran past the secondary without being touched. Games like this remind why NFL.com's Charles Davis has compared Mariota to Robert Griffin III.

Notre Dame redshirt junior QB Everett Golson completed 16-of-24 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Louisville.

Earlier this week, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler called Golson "Mr. Turnover." Golson had some ugly plays on Saturday, but he was largely able to minimize the typical mistakes. His body language was horrific before halftime, though, particularly after a play in which he spun away from several defenders in the backfield, only to fumble the ball backward fifteen yards. Notre Dame eventually fell on the fumble and ended up in a 3rd-and-38. Head coach Brian Kelly could be seen in replays yelling the word "Why?" as though he was being tortured. Golson settled down eventually and almost led the Fighting Irish back to a win. When he's not turning the ball over, Golson's an intriguing athletic talent who has the requisite arm strength. It's unfortunate for his draft status that every game seems to have several "why?" plays.
Nov 22 - 7:46 PM

Louisville senior WR DeVante Parker caught four passes for 65 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-28 win over Notre Dame.

Parker showed his athleticism on a 3rd-and-10 conversion where he caught the ball and broke through tackles and spun to the first down. Parker also hauled in a 21-yard scoring pass in the fourth quarter to put the Cardinals in the lead for good. Outside of those two plays, the Notre Dame defense did a good job limiting his damage. This was Parker's fourth game back from a foot injury. He's already amassed 555 yards and two touchdowns. When healthy, he is one of the best in the nation.
Nov 22 - 7:32 PM

Michigan junior WR Devin Funchess caught five passes for 30 yards in Saturday's 23-16 loss to Maryland.

That's three straight games in which Funchess hasn't cracked the 50-yard receiving mark and four straight since he's scored. Three of his four touchdowns came in the opening contest of the season. The numbers on Funchess are filled with sad emojis (just 625 receiving yards, four touchdowns), but we don't hold that against the 6-foot-5, 230-pound receiver. At least not too much. Michigan is clearly mailing in games at this point and it doesn't help that Funchess lacks a competent quarterback tossing him the ball. He remains one of the best physical talents in the nation and smart NFL teams will understand that circumstance has hurt his numbers.
Nov 22 - 7:19 PM

Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Melvin Gordon III rushed for 200 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries in Saturday's win over Iowa.

Unlike the wet paper towel of a front he faced against Nebraska on his way to 408 yards, Iowa actually played a modicum of defense on Gordon and managed to bottle him up for most of the game. He was repeatedly forced to take small gains and it wasn't until an 88-yard late in the game that the redshirt junior pumped up his yardage total. Gordon's willingness to take what he's given, rather than dance in the backfield for losses, is one of his best traits and something he did again and again versus the Hawkeyes. This was his fifth game with 200 or more rushing yards, and his third in a row.
Nov 22 - 7:07 PM

FSU senior WR Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 106 yards in Saturday's 20-17 win over Boston College.

Greene left the game briefly with an arm injury, but was able to return. As per usual, he acted as a safety blanket for Jameis Winston. This was Greene's seventh game with 100+ receiving yards. At only 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, he isn't as big as some of the more heralded prospects in the nation, but he's consistently shown an ability to work his way open with his precise routes and quick movements. On the season, he's caught 75 balls for 1,1148 yards and five touchdowns.
Nov 22 - 6:55 PM

FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston completed 22-of-32 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 20-17 win over Boston College.

Winston also threw an interception in the contest. Yet again, he had to pull a rabbit out of his hat, this time leading the team to a game-winning field goal in the final minutes. Winston seemed agitated at times, yelling at the officials, his receivers and himself. His wideouts dropped several passes and favorite target Rashad Greene left for a time with an injury. Even on what was an off-day, Winston still completed 68.8% of his passes and showed the pinpoint accuracy and arm strength that could see him drafted in the Top-10.
Nov 22 - 6:41 PM

Minnesota senior RB David Cobb tweeted that he would be ready to play next Saturday.

The full tweet was "all is well! I'll be ready to go next Saturday! Thanks." Cobb rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. He appeared to pull his hamstring on his 17-yard scoring scamper. While it's a good sign that Cobb's feeling confident, his status in practice this week will be something to keep an eye on as the Golden Gophers prepare for their meeting with Wisconsin.
Nov 22 - 6:27 PM

Florida DC D.J. Durkin will coach the team in their bowl game.

The Gators trounced Eastern Kentucky 52-3 on Saturday, improving their record to 6-4 and guaranteeing a bowl game. Defensive coordinator Durkin will coach the game in place of the outgoing Will Muschamp. Muschamp has the reigns of the team for one more game before he moves on to less hostile pastures.
Nov 22 - 6:16 PM

Alabama junior WR Amari Cooper left Saturday's game against Western Carolina with a knee injury.

Cooper had caught three passes for 46 yards before he exited with a knee injury prior to the close of the first half. Alabama head coach Nick Saban indicated that Cooper could have come back into the game. Given that the halftime score was 38-14 against a vastly inferior team, the team could afford to let him sit with the injury. We'll update his status when more information becomes available.
