SMU redshirt junior WR Trey Quinn is the first FBS player in the 21st century to catch at least 15 passes in three straight games.

Quinn caught 15 against UConn at the end of September before stepping it up with 17 catches versus Houston and Cincinnati in his past two games. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder has snagged 71 passes for 773 yards and five touchdowns on the year.

USC redshirt sophomore QB Sam Darnold said that his ankle injury is "nothing I can't handle."

Darnold aggravated a previous ankle injury in Saturday's demoralizing loss to Notre Dame and sat for most of the fourth quarter. This doesn't sound like a major issue, but the upcoming practice week will tell the tale as to whether the redshirt sophomore is able to play against Arizona State next weekend. Matt Fink would likely take the reigns if Darnold is unable to play in that contest.

Virginia hired Georgia deputy athletic director Carla Williams to serve as athletic director.

Williams' hiring is a landmark one, as she becomes the first female African-American to serve as athletic director at a Power Five program. She had been with Georgia for 13 years prior to being hired over by the Cavaliers. UVA president-elect Jim Ryan said in a statement, "She is exceedingly well-prepared for this role, but more than that, she is fiercely committed to excellence in both athletics and academics and has a track record of success in both arenas."

In the latest release of the Amway Coaches Poll, Alabama, Penn State, Georgia and TCU held steady at Nos. 1-4.

Last week's poll saw all sorts of seismic shifts thanks to a slew of upsets, but this weekend's slate of games proved to be relatively calm. Not only were there no changes in the first four slots in the fresh poll, No. 5 (Wisconsin) and No. 6 (Ohio State) also held their ground. We do welcome one new member to the top-10, with Notre Dame joining the party right at that No. 10 marker courtesy of their beatdown of USC on Saturday. Oh, and speaking of the Trojans, HC Clay Helton's crew plummeted a whopping 11 spots, all the way down to No. 21. Should they lose to Arizona State next weekend -- which is not at all out of the question -- they'll be in danger of falling out of the poll altogether.

Arkansas freshman RB Chase Hayden (leg) could miss an extended amount of time.

Hayden was injured in Saturday's loss to Auburn, exiting stage left after registering a pair of carries for 42 yards and one catch for 23 yards. After the game, Razorbacks HC Bret Bielema said, "I don’t want to comment on Chase until I know for sure," but did offer that the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder is dealing with an injury to the lower leg. The true freshman has rushed for 338 yards and four touchdowns for the current campaign. Further information as to his playing status moving forward should emerge in the coming days.

BYU junior LB Francis Bernard was arrested on suspicion of DUI early on Saturday morning.

The DUI is the most notable part of this arrest, but Bernard was also ticketed for driving sans a valid license and for having a lack of proper vehicle registration. The 6-foot, 235-pound junior is currently taking a redshirt this season in relation to his violating the school's honor code. There's more to the story, though. The Salt Lake Tribune's Jay Drew passes along that it's uncertain at this point if Bernard is even still enrolled at BYU.

Colorado junior QB Steven Montez was benched in Saturday's game at Washington State.

Montez got the hook in favor of redshirt freshman Sam Noyer at halftime after going 4-of-13 for 21 yards in the first half. His first nine passes were all incompletions. Montez entered the day with 1,691 passing yards on 63.6-percent completions. It was gusty and rainy in Pullman last night. We'd guess Montez gets the benefit of the doubt and remains the starter. Colorado (4-4, 1-4 Pac 12) hosts Cal next week.

Ole Miss junior QB Jordan Ta'amu entered in relief of Shea Patterson (knee) on Saturday against LSU and will likely to take over starting duties now that Patterson is out for the year.

Ta'amu (6'2/212) went 7-for-11 for 78 yards and 20 rushing yards on three carries against the Tigers. "I’m very confident (in Ta'amu moving forward)," HC Matt Luke said. "He showed some flashes tonight and did some things with his legs. I was impressed with him throwing the ball tonight. He led us on two scoring drives and that gave him some valuable experience." Ta’amu posted 3,000 passing yards and 39 total touchdowns last season at the junior college level. In the 2017 cycle, Ta'amu was tabbed as a three-star prospect by Scout and ESPN and the No. 4 JUCO dual-threat QB in the nation by ESPN. He was also a member of the Scout JUCO Top 100, listed as the No. 99 overall JUCO prospect in the country. "Jordan is a player and can handle the spotlight," said New Mexico Military HC Joe Forchtner, Ta'amu's JUCO coach. "I’d take him as my quarterback at any school in the country."

Ole Miss sophomore QB Shea Patterson (knee) will miss the remainder of the season.

Patterson tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee late in the first half of Saturday's loss to LSU. In a display of pure grit, Patterson returned after halftime to play all but the waning minutes of the game with a brace on his injured knee. According to reports, Patterson will spend the next four weeks in a cast. He won't know if he'll need surgery until an examination after that period (many PCL injuries heal on their own). Patterson, the SEC's leading passer, ends the season with 2,259 passing yards and a 17/9 TD/INT ratio. He'll enter next season as one of college football's more intriguing QB prospects. The 6-foot-2, 203-pounder is most often compared to Russell Wilson and Johnny Manziel (including by Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin). Last year, an NFL scout told Bleacher Report that Patterson "has the tools to play in this league for 10 years—and make a whole lot of money." Patterson, a former five-star recruit, was the No. 4 overall prospect in the 2016 class.

Colorado senior RB Phillip Lindsay ran for 98 yards on 29 carries in a 28-0 loss to Washington State on Saturday.

Lindsay (5-8/180) had to struggle -- and we do mean struggle -- for every yard against the Washington State defense. It didn't help but that Steven Montez got nothing done against the Cougars in the first half, and his replacement, freshman quarterback Sam Noyer, was no better. Lindsay should see more open lanes next week against Cal.
Oct 22 - 2:17 AM

Washington State freshman WR Davontavean Martin caught four passes for 78 yards and a score in a 28-0 rout of Colorado on Saturday.

Martin (6'3/182) was Falk's go-to wideout with Tavares Martin suspended for a "violation of team rules." Martin hauled in the game's first touchdown on a blown coverage by Colorado from 50 yards out from senior quarterback Luke Falk. The talented freshman could get more targets as the year progresses for Washington State, possibly starting next week against Arizona.
Oct 22 - 2:14 AM

Washington State senior QB Luke Falk completed 17-of-34 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns in a 28-0 demolishing of Colorado on Saturday.

Falk also ran for 41 yards, as the 6-foot-4, 223-pound quarterback had all day to throw and took off when necessary. While the three touchdowns are great, this was not a strong game from the senior QB. Anytime he had to make a throw that wasn't the first read, he struggled with accuracy, and Colorado dropped multiple interceptions. Still, even in a "bad" game, there were moments of brilliance for the potential first-round pick. Falk and the Cougs get Arizona next.

Fresno State sophomore RB Josh Hokit ran for three scores and 77 yards on 14 carries in a 27-3 victory over San Diego State on Saturday.

Hokit (6'1/220) has been getting more and more involved in the Fresno State offense, and had his best game as a Bulldog on Saturday. He opened the game's scoring with a one-yard plunge at the end of the first, and he added a 26-yard and four-yard touchdown in the second and fourth quarter. The vastly improved Bulldogs take on UNLV next week.
Oct 22 - 1:44 AM

San Diego State senior RB Rashaad Penny ran for 69 yards on 15 carries in a 27-3 blowout loss to Fresno State on Saturday.

Penny (5'11/200) is human, after all. It's the second-straight time that the senior running back has been held under 100 yards, and the second time this season he hasn't been able to find the end zone. Teams are going to put eight men in the box to stop the talented senior until San Diego State shows an inkling of a passing game. Penny and the Aztecs should have an easier time running the football next week against Hawaii.
Oct 22 - 1:40 AM

Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen completed just 12-of-27 passes for 131 yards with a touchdown and two picks in a 24-14 loss to Boise State on Saturday.

Allen (6'5/233) was able to run for 61 yards with a one-yard touchdown as well. It's the third time this year the junior quarterback has failed to complete at least 50 percent of his passes. Yes, he's playing with a short deck compared to the other first-round candidates at the position, but there's no denying that Allen needs to be better with his accuracy, timing and decision-making. He gets a date with New Mexico next week.
