Texas junior CB Davante Davis (illness) did not practice on Tuesday.

Davis (6'2/191) and WR Collin Johnson missed Tuesday's practice session due to 100-degree fevers. They're facing something of a time crunch to get right, as Texas will dance with Texas Tech on Black Friday. For his part, Davis has recorded 17 tackles with two passes defended this season.

Texas sophomore WR Collin Johnson (illness) did not practice on Tuesday.

Johnson was out with a 100-degree fever, as was CB Devante Davis. Setting aside their playing status for Friday's game against Texas Tech -- to be determined -- the real concern for Texas, here, would be that Johnson and Davis spread this illness to others on the team. We've seen similar team-wide outbreaks before simply due to the close proximity inherent in a locker room.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 ATH Bryan Addison does not plan on making his pledge until after UCLA hires its next coach.

Addison (6'4/176) is fresh off a visit to Washington and is also considering Arizona, Nebraska, Arizona State and Michigan in addition to the Huskies and Bruins. The Gardena, California, native had initially planned on making his pledge public following his visit to Seattle, but Mora's termination at UCLA now has him in a holding pattern. Rivals ranks Addison -- who has the chops to play either safety or wideout -- as the No. 59 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Wyoming redshirt senior QB Josh Allen (shoulder) threw the ball in practice on Tuesday.

Allen took a seat against Fresno State on Saturday due to the shoulder injury. While the NFLer-to-be was not a padded participant during Tuesday's practice, he has thrown the ball around each of the last two days without reporting any pain. His status for the Cowboys' regular-season finale against San Jose State remains uncertain. If he can't play in that one, Nick Smith would draw a second consecutive start. All signs point toward Allen declaring for the draft after the season.

Murray State senior CB D'Montre Wade accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Wade (6'0/181), a converted running back, has been among the most active cornerbacks at any collegiate level this season, having picked off a healthy six passes. He could be in line for an invitation for the NFL Scouting Combine, per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

In the latest release of the College Football Playoff rankings, Alabama, Miami, Clemson and Oklahoma (in order) landed as the top four teams.

Following a mostly static weekend for the big boys, the rankings -- especially at the top -- remained essentially the same. The only movement on that front was Miami and Clemson swapping the No. 2 and No. 3 positions. That's at least somewhat dubious to us given that the Hurricanes twice fell behind by 14 points against Virginia on Saturday, but it's a minor quibble. Beyond those first four squads, Wisconsin, Auburn, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Penn State round out the top-10. The biggest tumbler in the rankings was Oklahoma State, which dropped six spots to land at No. 19 courtesy of their loss to Kansas State on Saturday.

The Houston Chronicle's Brent Zwerneman reports that Texas A&M will fire HC Kevin Sumlin following Saturday's game against LSU.

Per Zwerneman, Sumlin will be terminated whether or not the Aggies come through with a win against the Tigers over the holiday weekend. When the Chronicle broached the report during Sumlin's press conference on Tuesday, the coach responded, "I haven't heard that." According to Zwerneman's reportage, it has not yet been determined exactly when Sumlin will receive the axe once his squad has played LSU -- only that it will, indeed, happen. This is a developing story and we'll pass along updates as information becomes available. Barring a late reprieve, Sumlin is looking like he could join Florida's Jim McElwain and Tennessee's Butch Jones in the ranks of this season's SEC coaching casualties. During his six seasons in College Station, he has compiled a 51-25 record -- but just a 25-22 mark in conference. The Aggies have not won more than eight games since 2013, Sumlin's second season on the job.

Texas freshman CB Josh Thompson (concussion) took part in non-contact activities during Tuesday's practice.

Thompson (6'0/200) sat out Saturday's win over West Virginia while mending from the head injury. His status for Friday's showdown with Texas Tech has not yet been determined, but should receive some light in the coming days.

TCU freshman QB Shawn Robinson (undisclosed) is questionable for Friday's game against Baylor.

Robinson started in place of Kenny Hill (concussion) in Saturday's win over Texas Tech, but was dinged up in the victory. The Horned Frogs are hopeful that Hill will be able to start versus Baylor, which would push the true freshman back to his traditional backup role regardless of health. We should receive some clarity as to the TCU quarterbacking situation in the leadup to this Black Friday kickoff. If neither can play, it would force third-stringer Grayson Muehlstein into the fire.

Miami (OH) redshirt junior RB Kenny Young (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Ball State.

Young (5'7/179) was injured against Eastern Michigan last Wednesday. The redshirt junior has rushed for 772 yards (5.4 YPC) and six touchdowns this season. With Alonzo Smith questionable with an undisclosed injury concern of his own and Maurice Thomas already nixed for health reasons, it's not quite clear where the Redhawks might turn for fortification at running back if both Young and Smith are unable to play.

Miami (OH) redshirt junior RB Alonzo Smith (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Ball State.

The absence of Smith would be a major deficit for the Redhawks, as he's rushed for 660 yards (4.6 YPC) and a pair of scores this season. Throw in an also-questionable Kenny Young and an already-ruled-out Maurice Thomas and Miami could be exceedingly thin at running back on Tuesday.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline has been disappointed in the development of UNLV senior WR Devonte Boyd.

"After an incredible freshman season when the bar was set high, Boyd has watched his production fall off every year and has never met expectations," Pauline writes. In that freshman campaign back in 2014, the 6-foot-1, 175-pounder logged a 65-980-4 receiving line. He's put up decreasing reception and yardage marks each of the three following years. Pauline notes that Boyd was viewed as a borderline draftable candidate entering the current season. The evaluating process will be crucial for the wideout if he's to see some Day 3 love.
Nov 21 - 6:32 PM

SMU HC Chad Morris expects senior LB Anthony Rhone (concussion) to be able to play against Tulane on Saturday.

Rhone (6'0/229) missed this past weekend's shootout loss to Memphis while in concussion protocol. The senior practiced on Tuesday. In 10 games this season, Rhone has recorded 60 tackles (4.0 for loss) and 1.5 sacks.
Nov 21 - 6:19 PM

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love (ankle) said that he plans on playing in Saturday's game against Notre Dame.

Love injured his ankle near the end of October. While he has managed to play in the last two contests, he suffered a recurrence of the issue against Cal over the weekend. The redshirt junior is a tough cookie and has shown the ability to play through the injury concern -- it forced him to miss Stanford's win over Oregon State earlier this fall, but that's it. This upcoming showdown with Notre Dame will be a stellar opportunity for Love to put his best Heisman foot forward if he can play. The Cardinal will be taking on the Irish in ABC's primetime slot come Saturday.
Nov 21 - 6:05 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill (concussion) is questionable for Friday's game against Baylor.

While Patterson said on Monday that Hill has "got a chance to be back" versus the Bears, the redshirt senior remains an uncertain quantity. On the more positive side of things, Hill was expected to practice on Tuesday. Shawn Robinson -- who started in his place in this past weekend's win over Texas Tech -- is himself questionable due to an undisclosed injury sustained on Saturday. Should neither Hill nor Robinson be healthy enough to play on Black Friday, redshirt junior Grayson Muehlstein would likely take over at signal-caller.
