Tennessee dismissed senior WR Alton 'Pig' Howard.
Howard was the school's leading statistical receiverlast season but only played in two contests this year, catching one pass for eight yards. He missed the opener due to suspension. Tennessee has lost three of their last four despite possessing talent on both sides of the ball.
Dismissed Auburn senior WR Duke Williams allegedly punched four people at a bar after the school's win over San Jose State, according to AL.com's Wesley Sinor.
The four people: two security guards, a bartender assistant and another unidentified patron of a bar. The altercation allegedly began when Williams' friend was kicked out of a bar for wearing sunglasses, and Williams tried to get him re-access with his "celebrity status." The victims stated they would press charges unless Auburn punished Williams, which they seemingly did by dismissing the receiver. Again, it has been quite a year for the "troubled" football player.
Toledo junior RB Kareem Hunt is closer to returning to the field than he has been in the last two games, according to head coach Matt Campbell.
Hamstring injuries are frequently tricky for skill position players, as the injury recurs if the player rushes back to the field. Hunt is the school's top offensive playmaker but has missed the last two contests. The 4-0 Rockets face Kent State next.
Georgia sophomore RB Nick Chubb is averaging 8.7 yards on 1st down carries this season, according to CFB Film Room.
That is ridiculous and encapsulates why Georgia had so much success prior to Alabama. Nine yards on first down sets up so many other options on second and third down, along with the threat of nine yards opening up other opportunities on first. It made Greyson Lambert look good enough.
After being dismissed from the football team, senior WR Duke Williams will no longer attend Auburn.
Williams will almost certainly enter the NFL Draft, but some analysts have questioned if he will be selected before the third day or even drafted at all. Gus Malzahn has refused to disclose any information on the dismissal, but Williams faced multiple infractions dating back to last season.
Updating a previous item, Ole Miss senior edge rusher C.J. Johnson's surgery was to repair a torn meniscus.
Johnson will miss four to six weeks. As a sophomore, Johnson looked like the real deal as an edge pass rushing threat, but injuries have slowed down that momentum. Ole Miss is coming off their first loss of the season, and Johnson will miss contests against Texas A&M and Auburn.
FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher told reporters sophomore RB Dalvin Cook could still play versus Miami despite not practicing.
Cook is dealing with a hamstring injury. The running back reeled off a 94 yard touchdown to and pulled up on the next carry. He accounts for 37 percent on FSU's total yardage this season and seems to come up with a big play when FSU needs it most. Cook is listed as day-to-day.
Georgia sophomore RB Nick Chubb has forced 26 missed tackles and is averaging 3.7 yards after contact per carry.
Against an Alabama defense both elite against the run and geared to stop him, the 5-foot-10, 228-pound Chubb carried the ball 20 times for 146 yards and a touchdown on Saturday. He forced seven missed tackles and gained 43 yards after contact. Chubb has accumulated 745 rushing yards with seven touchdowns on the young season.
