Clemson redshirt junior RB Wayne Gallman rushed for 59 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Saturday's 42-35 win over Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship Game.

Gallman has now been held under 65 yards rushing in seven of 13 games this season. For comparison's sake, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound redshirt junior came up shy of that mark just twice in 14 games played last season. Some of this drop-off may be due to simple volume issues. Gallman received more than 20 carries seven times in 2015 as compared to just three times this time around.

Virginia Tech junior QB Jerod Evans completed 21-of-35 passes for 264 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions while rushing for 46 yards and two additional scores in Saturday's 42-35 loss to Clemson in the ACC Championship Game.

To Virginia Tech's credit (and to Clemson's demerit), the Hokies refused to quit on Saturday. After the Tigers took a 35-14 lead near the end of the third quarter, Virginia Tech would make multiple charges and draw within seven points on several occasions. They just couldn't pull closer than that. In 13 games this season, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Evans has accounted for 37 total touchdowns (27 passing, 10 rushing).
Dec 4 - 12:38 AM

Clemson junior QB Deshaun Watson completed 23-of-34 passes for 288 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 42-35 win over Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship Game.

In a rare change of pace, Watson also chipped in with 85 yards rushing and two rushing touchdowns. His ground statistics have been noticeably muted for most of the season. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Heisman candidate entered Saturday's game with just 439 yards rushing and four scores over the course of 12 contests completed, this after he gouged opposing defenses for 1,105 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns in 15 games a year ago. With his five total touchdowns on Saturday, Watson has now accounted for 43 of them. He figures to have a busy month ahead of him, with a potential Heisman trip to New York and a Playoff showing at the end of December. And then, no rest for the weary, it will be on to draft preparation for the star quarterback.
Dec 4 - 12:31 AM

Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement rushed for 164 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in Saturday's 38-31 loss to Penn State in the Big Ten Championship Game.

While Clement put forth several impressive runs -- including a 67-yard scoring run around the left edge in the first quarter -- he will be haunted by one play late. With Wisconsin down seven and facing a fourth-and-short late in the fourth quarter, the 5-foot-11, 227-pound senior took the carry and tried to find wiggle room for the necessary gain. It was not to be, though, as Penn State played his dive perfectly and held him short of the line to gain. The Nittany Lions proceeded to run out the clock. This loss unofficially knocks Wisconsin out of Playoff contention.
Dec 4 - 12:20 AM

Penn State junior WR Saeed Blacknall caught six passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-31 win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game.

Both of Blacknall's touchdown grabs came from distance, as he hauled in a 40-yard score with a minute to go before halftime and then bested himself with an even longer, 70-yard touchdown in the opening minutes of the third quarter. The 6-foot-5, 212-pound junior almost eclipsed his previous production on the season in this one game. Prior to declawing the Badgers, he had caught nine passes for 192 yards and a touchdown in six games played.
Dec 4 - 12:12 AM

Penn State redshirt sophomore QB Trace McSorley was brilliant in Saturday's 38-31 win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, throwing for 384 yards and four touchdowns.

McSorley was nothing short of phenomenal in this one, helping the Nittany Lions to withstand an early flurry of punches from the Badgers via a monster comeback from down 28-7 midway through the second quarter. The 6-foot, 195-pounder showed beautiful touch and placement on multiple passes, including a 70-yard scoring toss to Saeed Blacknall early in the third quarter. McSorley averaged a stellar 12.3 YPA in the win. His performance on Saturday boosted him to single-season school records for both passing yardage (3,360 yards) and passing touchdowns (25).
Dec 4 - 12:05 AM

Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Josh Allen completed 14-of-31 passes for 248 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 27-24 loss to San Diego State in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Allen was a bit up-and-down in this one, but he certainly did have his moments. He tossed two of his three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter and had a chance for a potential game-tying or game-winning score late before turning over the ball to seal the defeat. In 13 games to date, the 6-foot-5, 220-pound redshirt sophomore has thrown for 2,986 yards with a 26/13 TD/INT ratio.
Dec 3 - 11:49 PM

Wyoming junior RB Brian Hill rushed for 93 yards on 16 carries in Saturday's 27-24 loss to San Diego State in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Fantastic defensive effort by SDSU to lock down Hill, especially after he bruised them for 131 yards and two touchdowns just two weeks ago. Not only did they hold him under 100 yards rushing, 66 of his 93 yards came on one single carry. Entering Saturday's action, the 6-foot-1, 220-pound junior had broken off at least 100 yards rushing in six consecutive contests.
Dec 3 - 11:43 PM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Saturday's 27-24 win over Wyoming in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Pumphrey and backfield buddy Rashaad Penny both surpassed 100 yards rushing in this one, with Penny actually leading the Aztecs with his 117 yards. As a team, San Diego State rushed for 242 yards and three touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Pumphrey looked absolutely unstoppable for much of the season, but had been held under 100 yards rushing in each of his last two games prior to breaking out of his mini-slump on Saturday. San Diego State has now won back-to-back Mountain West titles. A year ago, they defeated Air Force to earn conference bragging rights.
Dec 3 - 11:37 PM

Arkansas State sophomore RB Warren Wand rushed for 135 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries in Saturday's 36-14 win over Texas State.

Wand scored from 26 yards out early in the second quarter. That was the only touchdown the Red Wolves managed in the first half. They clung to a 16-14 lead entering the fourth quarter before dropping 20 consecutive points in the fourth to pull away for an easy-on-the-scoreboard victory. This was just Wand's second 100-yard rushing effort in 12 games. At 7-5, Arkansas State will be going bowling in the coming weeks.
Dec 3 - 11:24 PM

Idaho redshirt sophomore RB Isaiah Saunders rushed for 99 yards on 22 carries in Saturday's 37-12 mashing of Georgia State.

Saunders averaged 4.5 YPC while turning in a long run of 13 yards. This was his fourth consecutive game with at least 85 yards rushing. That, after failing to hit that mark in any of Idaho's first eight games. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, the 5-foot-10, 223-pound redshirt sophomore has rushed for 577 yards and six touchdowns.
Dec 3 - 8:31 PM

Idaho junior QB Matt Linehan completed 15-of-19 passes for 126 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 37-12 win over Georgia State.

Enter the Kibbie Dome at your own peril. With the victory, Idaho improved to 8-4 on the season. Linehan wasn't lighting it up in terms of his yardage total, but his three touchdown passes were the second-most he has thrown in a game this season. Indeed, the 6-foot-3, 214-pound junior hasn't been particularly charitable with the scoring passes in 2016. He has thrown 15 total, with only three multi-touchdown efforts. The bowl-bound Vandals will now await their assignment.
Dec 3 - 8:26 PM

Wisconsin redshirt freshman QB Alex Hornibrook (head) is not starting Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game against Penn State.

Hornibrook has been dealing with a head injury sustained against Minnesota last weekend. While he will potentially be available in the Big Ten title tilt, Bart Houston draws the start in his place. Both quarterbacks could see playing time depending on the flow of the game.
Dec 3 - 8:21 PM

Alabama freshman QB Jalen Hurts completed 11-of-20 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 54-16 win over Florida in the SEC Championship Game.

Hurts entered Saturday's contest having rushed for 840 yards and 12 touchdowns. Florida was ready for that aspect of his game, though, holding him to a grand total of one yard on the ground. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound true freshman gunslinger will enter Alabama's Playoff run later this month having thrown for 2,563 yards with a 21/9 TD/INT ratio over 13 games. Plus the aforementioned rushing work.
Dec 3 - 8:13 PM

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore WR Corey Holmes can transfer without restrictions.

The speedster hasn't gotten much field time over the past three years, so he's going to opt out. Holmes, a former top-100 recruit, should have plenty of suitors on the open market. Holmes' father David played DB at Syracuse in the 1980s and in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions.
