Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn told reporters OC Rhett Lashlee will call plays for the remainder of the season.

Malzahn served as the playcaller in Auburn's two losses to Clemson and Texas A&M, obviously difficult teams, but the victory over LSU pointed to Malzahn sticking with Lashlee. This isn't the first time Malzahn gave Lashlee this responsibility, making the same decision last season before taking it back in the offseason. Auburn faces ULM and Arkansas over the next few weeks.

LSU has turned to DL coach Ed Orgeron to fill the interim head coach duties.

After opening the season with a record of 2-2 with National Championship hype heading into the year, LSU made big changes. Steve Ensminger will serve as offensive coordinator. Orgeron is no stranger to interim head coaching titles, as he took over for a fired Lane Kiffin for USC and lobbied to keep the job, but the Trojans elected to go with Steve Sarkisian. If we can use narratives, Orgeron is known as a players' coach and motivator. LSU faces Missouri and Florida in the coming weeks.

LSU fired HC Les Miles.

Miles managed to survive rampant unemployment rumors last November, but he couldn't avoid the boot this time around. The Tigers have been almost completely listless on offense this season, having surpassed 25 points scored in just one of four games. "Decisions like this are never easy ones to make. Coach Miles has done a tremendous job here and he’s been a great ambassador for our University," said AD Joe Avella in a statement, "which makes this even more difficult." In addition to Miles' termination, OC Cam Cameron has also been shown the door. DL coach Ed Orgeron will take over as interim head coach moving forward, while TE coach Steve Ensminger is expected to step in for Cameron.

Notre Dame fired DC Brian VanGorder.

After last weekend's loss to Michigan State, HC Brian Kelly said that the notion of firing VanGorder was "not even part of the conversation." How things change in the course of seven days. Duke defeated Notre Dame 38-35 on Saturday, winning as a three-touchdown underdog. That was the final straw. Through four games with VanGorder vaguely guiding the ship, Notre Dame had surrendered 134 points. "I have the utmost respect for Brian as both a person and football coach," said Kelly, "but our defense simply isn't where it should be and I believe this change is necessary for the best interest of our program and our student-athletes." Defensive analyst Greg Hudson will take over as defensive coordinator moving forward.

Texas A&M redshirt junior WR Ricky Seals-Jones exited Saturday's game against Arkansas in the first half with an injured left leg.

Seals-Jones spent the second half in street clothes. Aggies HC Kevin Sumlin declined to address Seals-Jones' status afterwards, so we'll have to wait a few days to update you on his prognosis. Expected to be favored in the next two weeks, the Aggies could be 6-0 when they take on top-ranked Alabama on Oct. 22.

An NFC scout was surprised with Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly's underthrows against Alabama.

"This was my first time seeing Chad Kelly in person. For supposedly having such a strong arm, he sure did have his share of underthrows," the scout said. This was Lance Zierlein's take on that: "Kelly has the ability to put plenty of zip on most of his short to intermediate throws, but was plagued by some deep-ball shots that came up a little short against Alabama. While there are different ways to view and evaluate arm strength, my guess is that this scout will see enough arm when he gets in-depth with tape study of Kelly."

Memphis redshirt junior QB Riley Ferguson completed 20-for-27 passes for 359 yards and six touchdowns in Saturday's win over Bowling Green.

Ferguson added a rushing score. Ferguson has picked up where Paxton Lynch left off over the first three games, albeit against a weak slate. He has 843 passing yards and an 11/2 TD/INT rate. The degree of difficulty is about to get tougher with revenge-seeking Ole Miss on deck.

Charlotte senior RB Kalif Phillips (hamstring) had 16 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss to Temple.

In his return from a hamstring injury, Phillips also caught a 12-yard pass. The 49ers' offensive focal point was held out of out of last Saturday's loss to Eastern Michigan with the injury. He ran for 961 yards and five scores last year.

Michigan freshman RB Kareem Walker was on the sidelines in street clothes for Saturday's game against Penn State.

Walker has still not played this season. HC Jim Harbaugh says he's focusing on academics. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound prospect was a top-50 overall recruit in the past cycle. "He's working through some things academically," Harbaugh has said. "Less football for him. We're giving him the opportunity the concentrate on academics right now." The Wolverines employ a deep platoon of backs consisting right now of De'Veon Smith, Ty Isaac, Chris Evans and Karan Higdon.

An NFC scout believes Alabama senior ILB Reuben Foster will get drafted earlier than expected.

"I think Reuben Foster is going to get drafted way earlier than people expect," the scout said. "(Luke) Kuechly got drafted early and I think Foster has the same (expletive) to him." Kuechly, the best middle linebacker in the NFL, was drafted ninth overall in the 2012 draft. "What this scout means is that Foster plays with the same nastiness as Kuechly, which is a high compliment to pay the Alabama linebacker," Lance Zierlein wrote. "Foster is known as an angry hitter with bad intentions. What doesn't get enough attention is his speed to go sideline to sideline in order to chase down plays." The analyst believes Foster's game fits any scheme.

Western Kentucky senior WR Taywan Taylor caught nine balls for 112 yards in Saturday's win over Vanderbilt.

In addition, he rushed twice for 11 yards. After posting a 86-1467-17 receiving line last season, the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder has conjured up a connection with Mike White like he had with Brandon Doughty. Taylor continues to see heavy targets and has at least 112 yards receiving in three of his first four games. The bad news? Only one touchdown. That'll change.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon exited Saturday's victory over Oklahoma State in the third quarter with a groin injury.

Per Baylor coach Jim Grobe, Cannon suffered the injury in practice during the week and then aggravated it against the Cowboys. He was in street clothes and seen limping at the end of the game. We'll update you on his status when more is known.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks believes Texas A&M redshirt junior WR Ricky Seals-Jones bloodlines to Pro Football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson, his cousin, will help his case with NFL evaluators.

"Whenever a player has bloodlines to a Pro Football Hall of Famer, he's certain to draw interest from NFL scouts hoping to find a player with the skills to excel in the 'family business,'" Brooks wrote. "The former high school basketball standout has developed into a playmaker with the kind of size and athleticism to terrorize opponents in the red zone." The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Seals-Jones has only 10 catches for 175 yards amid a stacked receiving depth chart this year. "Seals-Jones has flashed the strength and running skills to excel on 'catch-and-run' concepts inside the numbers," Brooks wrote. "The NFL is always searching for mismatch creators in the passing game."

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight completed 12-of-22 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over Arkansas.

Knight did the most damage on the ground, shredding the Razorbacks for 157 yards and two additional scores. Knight is up to 1,055 passing yards, 308 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns for the 4-0 Aggies.

An NFL personnel executive believes Nevada redshirt senior Tyler Stewart is the most underrated quarterback in college football.

"Stewart has good size and he's a decent athlete," the exec said. "He's more of a pocket guy. He wasn't a great fit for what they were doing last year. He needs some development but he's worth a pick." Stewart has a 5/1 TD/INT rate through four games but hasn't yet reached 190 yards passing.
