  There are still far more questions than answers regarding the college football season, but as of now, teams around the nation are proceeding as they normally would. New Mexico State opened up fall camp on Friday night in Las Cruces, despite pleas from Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham not to play, and with three of the games on its 2020 schedule already canceled. The vast majority of the Aggies' roster was on the practice field for NMSU; however, three players have opted out of the season due to the pandemic. Head coach Doug Martin announced that star linebacker Rashie Hodge and defensive lineman Myles Vigne will sit out the season, joining defensive lineman Jomaious williams, who opted out last week. - KTSM 9 News

  Due to continuing concerns related to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Big Sky Conference is postponing its fall 2020 football season to spring 2021. The conference's Presidents' Council convened Thursday and voted to move forward in this manner. Non-conference play for the conference's football programs is still pending further review. The Big Sky has begun exploring modified versions of a conference football schedule to be played in the spring and fully supports the NCAA shifting the FCS championship to the spring. - Big Sky Football

  North Carolina defensive backs D.J. Ford, Javon Terry and Bryce Watts have opted out of playing this season due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Team spokesman Jeremy Sharpe announced in a video call with reporters after Friday's practice. Ford is a redshirt senior who started seven games last year, while Terry appeared in all 13 games as a redshirt freshman. Watts is a junior who sat out last year after transferring from Virginia Tech. The team had previously announced that offensive lineman Triston Miller would not play due to “family reasons,” though it did not elaborate further. - AP College Football

  With Rousseau opting out, Jaelan Phillips and Jahfari Harvey will get more snaps as UM's second and third defensive ends (behind Quincy Roche), and several players (Jason Blissett, Chantz Williams, Cameron Williams, Jared Harrison-Hunte) will get a chance to compete for the No. 4 job. Here's what defensive line coach Todd Stroud told me this summer about Phillips and Harvey: "Jaelan is an elite pass rusher. The system they played at UCLA is totally different than ours, but he adapts very well and likes our system. He can be a devastating [force]. He runs very well for a big guy. It's a shame we got only four practices in, but he got his feet wet. He had to knock off the rust. He's got a very good skill set. He's eager to learn..."Jahfari is not as vertical as those other [edge] guys," Stroud said. "He's 6-3 and he's extremely powerful. He was 218 when he got here, and he's over 240 right now. "As far as flat-out speed and ability to run, he's our most elite defensive end in terms of how he runs. He's very twitchy, and his short-area speed is unbelievable. He seems to be getting a better grip on our defense, which allows him to play full speed more. He's responded to the pressure of having to learn this defense very well." - Miami Herald

  08/07/20 - QB Josh JacksonrSr/2021, Maryland, 6-1, 218 (DS#23 QB) + More +

  Maryland senior quarterback Josh Jackson has opted out of the upcoming football season, leaving the Terrapins with very little depth and experience at the pivotal position. Jackson is the most prominent of six Maryland players who have decided not to play in 2020 for reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic, coach Michael Locksley said during a teleconference Friday. Jackson played in 10 games last year for Maryland after transferring from Virginia Tech. He went 98 for 207 for 1,274 yards and 12 touchdowns with six interceptions. His backup was Tyrrell Pigrome, who transferred to Western Kentucky during the offseason. With Jackson out, Locksley is hoping the NCAA will grant a transfer waiver to former Alabama quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, the younger brother of Tua Tagovailoa, who starred at Alabama and was selected fifth overall by Miami in the 2020 NFL draft. - AP College Football

  For Knox, the focus is never on what he's done; instead, it's about what he hasn't done or what he feels he doesn't do well. Knox credited that demeanor to a coaching staff that accents areas of needed improvement while keeping him grounded and hungry for more. He showed no hesitation when asked about the areas where he can improve in his second full year as the starting running back for the Herd. "Route-running, little things, you can always get better at pass protection," Knox said. "Tedious things as a running back. The end goal is to be complete, so whatever gets me closer to that goal."

With a new quarterback behind center for 2020, Knox knows his presence is likely elevated for the Herd's success. Knox also knows that other teams will devise game plans to take him away from the offense as best as possible by trying to find weaknesses in his game and force the Herd into those situations. Therefore, the goal over the next four weeks is to train as hard as he's ever trained to be ready for whatever is asked of him in 2020. For Knox, it's one thing to make it to the top. It's another to stay on top. "You've just got to take it where it's at," Knox said. - Charleston Gazette

  LSU redshirt freshman quarterback Peter Parrish, who had been suspended since January of this year, is transferring to Memphis, Parrish announced on Thursday.

  Two Ragin' Cajuns receivers and a key defensive lineman are out for most or all of the 2020 season and will be redshirted this year, UL coach Billy Napier said the day before his team opened its 10-day preseason camp Friday. Napier said receiver Jamal Bell will undergo knee surgery to repair a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury, receiver Calif Gossett is out with a torn Achilles tendon and defensive lineman Kendall Wilkerson will be out due to injuries sustained in a previously undisclosed car accident in the spring. Gossett, from Pensacola High in Florida, will be a sixth-year senior in 2021. He played in 11 games last year, making 15 catches for 178 yards. - Daily Advertiser
