NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah views Notre Dame junior RB Josh Adams as being a step below Penn State's Saquon Barkley and LSU's Derrius Guice.

"He's not nearly as explosive or dynamic as those RBs," Jeremiah notes, "but he is a very capable runner with outstanding size and production." The analyst refers to the 6-foot-1, 212-pounder as possessing a "nice initial burst" and is a big fan of the junior's shimmy-and-shake in the open field. Adams has rushed for 776 yards (9.0 YPC) and five touchdowns this season and could see some Heisman love in December if Notre Dame puts together a strong second half to the campaign. He's a likely Day 2 or early Day 3 prospect for the draft should he declare.

Ball State senior WR Jordan Hogue (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Central Michigan.

Hogue (6'0/185) has not played since the season-opener. He's currently without a timetable to return.

Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger passes along that both Texas and Oklahoma are candidates to flip Texas A&M three-star 2018 verbal LB commit DaShaun White.

Texas just recently offered to White, so it's fair to wonder whether they have enough time to make a real dent in his recruitment. Oklahoma, however, could be a true threat to the Aggies. The 6-foot, 220-pounder has a visit to Norman scheduled and was seriously considering a commitment to OU before he ultimately sided with Texas A&M. He ranks as Rivals' No. 31 outside linebacker prospect in the 2018 class.

ECU redshirt senior QB Thomas Sirk will start Saturday's game against BYU.

Sirk and Gardner Minshew have both seen playing time this season, but it will be Sirk who draws the start against the Cougars. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder has thrown for 1,473 yards (55.2% completions) with a forgettable 9/8 TD/INT ratio in six games during the current campaign.

The November 4th contest between Rutgers and Maryland will no longer be played in Yankee Stadium as initially scheduled.

"As a result of the Yankees' amazing postseason run, there were operational concerns that called for us to make a decision at this time," said Rutgers AD Pat Hobbs in a statement. The Yankees are one win away from the World Series. With the Bronx out the window, the Scarlet Knights will now assume traditional hosting duties at High Point Solutions Stadium.

Middle Tennessee junior WR Richie James (ankle) will start Friday's game against Marshall.

James finally made his way back from an ankle injury which cost him three games when he caught seven passes for 47 yards in a loss to UAB last weekend. The ever-productive wideout looks to be in the clear from that pesky injury at this juncture.

South Alabama sophomore QB Dallas Davis will start Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe.

Davis completed 7-of-10 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown in a win over Troy a week ago Wednesday after he came on for an ineffective Cole Garvin. Jaguars HC Joey Jones is going to stick with the hot hand, here, saying, "Dallas had a good (practice) week, Cole had a good week (too), but I think Dallas is just a little bit better." The team believes that Davis is nearing full health after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery.

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly said that junior RB Dexter Williams (ankle) will be "extremely limited" if he plays in Saturday's game against USC.

Williams has not played since Notre Dame's win over Michigan State on September 23. He's seen just 20 carries on the season. Even if the 5-foot-11, 200-pounder does take the field this weekend, Josh Adams and Tony Jones Jr. will be handling the bulk of the carries for the Irish.

Temple redshirt sophomore QB Logan Marchi suffered a lower extremity injury during practice this week.

The Owls are still expecting that Marchi will be able to play against Army on Saturday, but his status is worth monitoring given that he has had only a few days to rest the injury concern. Redshirt junior Frank Nutile would see playing time on Saturday if Marchi is limited or ruled out.

South Alabama senior RB Xavier Johnson (ankle) is expected to be able to play in Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe.

"He's practiced the last couple of days, so actually he looks almost 100 percent. He looked really good this week," said Jaguars HC Joey Jones. Johnson (5'11/190) sprained his ankle in a win over Troy a week ago Wednesday. The senior is just 13 yards shy of setting the school-record for career rushing yards. He's currently sitting on 2,574, with 349 of those coming this season.

Tennessee junior QB Quinten Dormady (shoulder) will be available off the bench in Saturday's game against Alabama.

Dormady, who was unseated as starter by Jarrett Guarantano earlier this month, reportedly had his shoulder evaluated on Thursday. Both quarterbacks will probably see action against the Tide in what has the makings of a long, long afternoon for the Volunteers.

Florida received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 verbal T commit Richard Gouraige.

Gouraige (6'5/250) opted for the Gators over fellow finalist Clemson. He ranks as Rivals' No. 101 prospect in the 2018 class. The Tampa native offers the flexibility and frame of a likely future left tackle, but will need to continue to hone his strength and physicality once he heads down to Gainesville.

Ohio State freshman CB Shaun Wade's father told Eleven Warriors that his son has been dealing with a torn muscle in his abdomen since the spring.

Per Wade's father, the pain from the injury was severe enough that the freshman corner was forced to leave a Week 2 practice to undergo an MRI. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder has not played in any of the last four games, but Buckeyes HC Urban Meyer indicated that Wade should be able to return to practice next week. OSU is off on bye this weekend, with Penn State showing over the horizon on the schedule.

Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger passes along that administrative uncertainty at Nebraska could scare off four-star 2018 verbal WR commit Josh Moore.

Moore (6'1/156) was intrigued by the possibility of running track with the Huskers in addition to football, but Krueger writes that "with the hiring of a new athletic director and speculation that a coaching change could follow, [the track aspect] might not be enough to keep him in the fold." As for who might be able to pry Moore loose from Nebraska, the Yoakum, Texas, native will be taking an official visit to Alabama this weekend and his brother Jordan Moore (a four-star athlete in his own right) is currently committed to Texas A&M. Both the Tide and Aggies are programs to watch, here. Moore ranks as Rivals' No. 142 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

While Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder) practiced this week, he is not a lock to start against Arizona State on Saturday.

When Utes HC Kyle Whittingham was asked during the practice week whether Huntley would be able to play on Saturday, he said, "There’s always a chance. Until they tell me he’s ruled out, there’s always a chance." The sophomore has missed each of the last two contests due to a shoulder ailment, with Troy Williams starting in his place in losses to Stanford and USC. For what it's worth, Huntley is listed as starter on the depth chart for Saturday's showdown with the Sun Devils. We're viewing him as a game-time decision unless Utah passes along word to the contrary.
