Date:

TCU junior CB Julius Lewis will miss the remainder of the season due to an injury suffered in practice.

Lewis is the team's No. 2 corner, so it is a big loss. It is the second straight year where Lewis misses time, as he dealt with an Achilles injury last season. Jeff Gladney and Tony James will fill in.

UConn junior RB Arkeel Newsome rushed for 15 yards and a touchdown on four carries while catching eight passes for 170 yards and an additional score in Sunday's 41-38 loss to ECU.

Newsome had himself a backwards afternoon, doing almost nothing on the ground but excelling as a receiving option out of the backfield. His 79-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter came with an outstanding after-the-catch effort. After bringing in a little swing pass from QB Bryant Shirreffs, the 5-foot-7, 182-pounder was angled toward the right sideline by a swarming ECU defense before somehow breaking through a four-man attempt at a tackle and finding nothing but green grass ahead of him. While this was an impressive showing by Newsome overall, he's going to have to get on his horse if he wants to post 800 yards rushing for the third consecutive season -- through three games, the junior back has just 32 yards rushing to his fair name.

Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh said that redshirt senior QB Wilton Speight has a "soft (tissue) issue."

Speight was sandwiched by two Purdue defenders in the first quarter of Saturday's win and was subsequently taken to an off-site locale for precautionary X-rays. Those X-rays came back free-and-clear of any evidence of structural damage, but there is no current timetable for Speight's return. Helping matters considerably, the Wolverines are off on bye this coming weekend. Should he be sidelined beyond that, John O'Korn -- who took over for him after the injury -- would start in his place.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 DE Ani Izuchukwu tagged Ohio State, Alabama and South Carolina as the front-runners for his pledge.

Izuchukwu (6'4/226) will be taking unofficial visits to all three of the Buckeyes, Tide and Gamecocks in October. He told Rivals that a commitment before the end of the year is in the field of play depending on how those visits pan out. The outlet's No. 197 overall prospect is still raw in terms of techniques, as he just began playing football two years ago after moving to the United State from Nigeria.

UConn junior QB Bryant Shirreffs completed 24-of-39 passes for 406 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 41-38 loss to ECU.

Go figure that a buried-away little contest between UConn and ECU would end up being a fireworks show. Both Shirreffs and opposing number Thomas Sirk posted 400-plus passing yards and the game was not decided until UConn K Michael Tarbutt missed a 33-yard field goal that would have tied it up at the gun. This was a career-best effort for Shirreffs, who will face a much tougher test next weekend, when the Huskies travel to SMU.

ECU redshirt senior WR Davon Grayson caught 11 passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 41-38 win over UConn.

The Huskies possess one of the worst secondaries in the country and Grayson readily took advantage. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder's highlight grab came on a 75-yard touchdown catch in the opening minutes of the third quarter. On the play in question, he hauled in the pass on the left sideline about 20 yards downfield, then made a Saquon Barkley-esque jump cut back to the right which caused two UConn defenders to collide while he raced to glory. Grayson has put in at least 75 yards receiving in three of four games this season, with Sunday's performance his first of the 100-yard variety (and the 200-yard variety, at that).
Sep 24 - 4:04 PM

ECU redshirt senior QB Thomas Sirk completed 30-of-39 passes for 426 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 41-38 win over UConn.

In a rare midseason Sunday CFB contest, the Pirates and Huskies put on an entertaining show. All three of Sirk's touchdown passes went to WR Davon Grayson, two of those coming in the first quarter. Sirk missed ECU's loss to Virginia Tech last weekend due to a concussion, but looked no worse for the wear in helping ECU to their first victory of the campaign on Sunday. He entered action with just 401 yards passing and a 1/4 TD/INT ratio. Unfortunately for Sirk and company, South Florida comes calling next weekend.

Penn State junior RB Saquon Barkley leads the Big Ten in both receptions and receiving yardage.

Barkley has caught 23 passes for 335 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Maryland WR D.J. Moore is second in the conference in both categories, one catch and 22 yards behind Penn State's supernova junior. Barkley tallied a school-record 358 total yards in Saturday's thrilling win over Iowa and is putting in a simply remarkable campaign on the whole. He's tracking toward a Heisman the way he's going right now.

Akron redshirt senior RB Warren Ball rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries in Saturday's 22-17 loss to Troy.

Ball now has a pair of 100-yard rushing games under his belt this season. He has not topped 40 yards in either of Akron's other two games. For the campaign as a whole, the 6-foot-3, 230-pounder has posted 325 yards (4.5 YPC) and four touchdowns. He should be able to put up strong numbers against Bowling Green next Saturday.
Sep 24 - 3:17 PM

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly said that junior RB Josh Adams was feeling some ankle stiffness at the half in Saturday's game against Michigan State.

Adams was held out in the second half as a precautionary measure. While an X-ray on the stiff ankle has returned negative, his status is worth monitoring in the practice-week lead-up to next Saturday's game against Miami (OH). He should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

In the latest release of the AP Top-25 poll, TCU and Georgia saw rises to Nos. 9 and 7, respectively.

Georgia is up from No. 11 and TCU up from No. 16 thanks to respective wins over Mississippi State and Oklahoma State. A casualty of these rises came in the form of Ohio State, with the Buckeyes being knocked from No. 10 to No. 11. Elsewhere in poll excitement, two new faces joined the fray on Sunday, with West Virginia and Notre Dame slotting in at Nos. 23 and 22, respectively.
Sep 24 - 2:49 PM

Michigan senior DE Chase Winovich was named the winner of the Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week award courtesy of his performance in Saturday's win over Purdue.

Winovich (6'3/245) was all up in the Boilermakers' business throughout Saturday, racking up six tackles (4.0 for loss) and three sacks in the 28-10 victory. The senior defensive lineman has picked up at least one sack in three of four games this season and has recorded 15 tackles in the last two contests.
Sep 24 - 2:35 PM

Cincinnati senior WR Devin Gray caught six passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 42-32 loss to Navy.

Gray (6'0/177) hauled in a 46-yard scoring pass with 2:05 remaining in the first quarter. The senior wideout had been held to just 59 yards receiving entering action on Saturday. He could see some late-round draft love come the spring.
Sep 24 - 2:22 PM

TCU sophomore RB Darius Anderson was named the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week for his showing against Oklahoma State on Saturday.

Anderson helped fuel TCU's upset of the Cowboys with 160 yards rushing and three touchdowns, including a 42-yard scoring dash in the closing minutes which more or less iced the game. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder has rushed for 422 yards and six touchdowns in four contests this season.

In the latest release of the Amway Coaches Poll, Georgia moved from No. 12 to No. 8.

No changes at the top, as Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma and Penn State all retained spot Nos. 1-4, respectively. Further down, Georgia bumped up four spots to land in the top-10 courtesy of Saturday's dominating win over Mississippi State. TCU nearly joined them after their upset of Oklahoma State, but not quite, not quite -- the Horned Frogs moved up from No. 15 to No. 11. As for the biggest droppers, nobody took a harder hit than Florida State. The 0-2 Seminoles plummeted 14 spots to No. 25 following their loss to NC State and are now teetering on the edge of falling out of the poll altogether.
