 College Football Player News & Notes


  Wisconsin is bringing Cincinnati's Luke Fickell back to the Big Ten. Athletic director Chris McIntosh announced Sunday that the Badgers had hired Fickell to take over their football program after a successful run with the Bearcats. Fickell posted a 57-18 record in six seasons at Cincy and helped the Bearcats earn a College Football Playoff berth last year. The former Ohio State defensive lineman went 6-7 as the Buckeyes' interim coach in 2011 after Jim Tressel's resignation. "This is a destination job at a program that I have admired from afar for years," Fickell said in a statement released by the university. "I am in total alignment with Chris McIntosh's vision for this program. There is a tremendous foundation here that I can't wait to build upon." Fickell informed the Bearcats players earlier Sunday that he was leaving the school. A person with knowledge of Fickell's decision told The Associated Press that veteran assistant coach Kerry Coombs was being named interim coach of the Bearcats.

Fickell, 49, takes over for interim coach and former Badgers star player Jim Leonhard, who replaced Paul Chryst on Oct. 2. Chryst went 67-26 in 7 1/2 seasons. He was fired one day after the Badgers lost 34-10 at home to an Illinois team led by former Badgers coach Bret Bielema. "Luke is one of the top football coaches in the country. He is a proven winner, recruiter and developer of players," McIntosh said in a statement. "Equally as important, he shares our values. Coach Fickell is focused on giving our student-athletes the best opportunities possible and is attuned to the changing landscape of college athletics. "I have every confidence that he will respect and honor the foundation that has been set for our football program over the years while embracing the exciting opportunities ahead." Wisconsin (6-6, 4-5 Big Ten) is awaiting its bowl assignment. A loss in the bowl game would cause the Badgers to finish below .500 for the first time since 2001. - AP College Football

  Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said DJ Uiagalelei will remain the team's starting quarterback for the ACC Championship game against No. 24 North Carolina. Swinney said Sunday that Uiagalelei was not the reason for the 10th-ranked Tigers' 31-30 loss to rival South Carolina ON Saturday. Uiagalelei completed just 8 of 29 passes for 99 yards in the rivalry loss. He threw a interception in the second half as the Tigers were trying to rally for the go-ahead score. Swinney said Uiagalelei's receivers had a number of drops and the defensive backs were beaten deep by South Carolina quarterback Spencer Rattler at crucial moments. "He's still the starter," Swinney said. "He doesn't play safety or catch the ball. He's got his share of things he can do better. But he will definitely start the game." Uiagalelei appeared as if he had found his form through Clemson's 7-0 start with 17 touchdowns and just two interceptions. But he has thrown at least one pick in the Tigers' past five games and was benched against Syracuse and Notre Dame for freshman Cade Klubnik. The Tigers (10-2) look for their seventh Atlantic Coast Conference crown in the past eight seasons when they face the Tar Heels (9-3) on Saturday. - AP College Football

  Tulsa fired coach Philip Montgomery, who spent eight seasons at the school and reached four bowl games, on Sunday. The Golden Hurricane finished their season 5-7 after beating Houston on the road Saturday. It was not enough to keep the school from making a change. Montgomery finished 43-53 in his first head coaching job. "I'm certainly disappointed that I won't have the opportunity to continue leading this program," Montgomery said in a statement. "For the past eight years, I've given the University of Tulsa, our players, and staff everything I have. I'm proud of the way we locked arms and battled through adversity at every turn." Montgomery was offensive coordinator at Baylor before taking over at Tulsa in 2015, but the Golden Hurricane's offense was up and down throughout Montgomery's tenure. Montgomery's best season came in Year 2, when Tulsa went 10-3. The Golden Hurricane also played in the American Athletic Conference championship game in 2020, losing to Cincinnati. - AP College Football

  Texas State coach Jake Spavital was fired Sunday after four seasons in which the Bobcats won just 13 games. Texas State finished its second consecutive 4-8 season on Saturday with a 41-13 loss at home to Louisiana-Lafayette. The Sun Belt program has had only one winning season since moving up to the FBS in 2012. "I strongly believe that Texas State Football can consistently win at a high level," athletic director Don Coryell said in statement. "We have some of college football's most passionate and generous fans and supporters; we have tremendous facilities; we are located in a hotbed of football-driven communities and recruits; we are aligned in our collective vision for Texas State Football; and we are working on providing the necessary resources to enable our student-athletes and coaches to be successful." Spavital, 37, was one of the youngest head coaches in major college football when he was hired after the 2018 season. He had been offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at West Virginia, California and Texas A&M before landing his first head coaching job. Spavital and Texas State made headlines when they signed a recruiting class that initially had nothing but transfers and no high school recruits in 2021. - AP College Football

  Michigan moved up to No. 2 in The Associated Press college football poll Sunday, with TCU at No. 3 and Southern California at No. 4 behind top-ranked Georgia after four top-10 teams lost on the final day of regular-season games. The Bulldogs (12-0) are No. 1 for the eighth straight week and 11th time this season in the AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank. Georgia received 58 first-place votes and Michigan received the other five. The Wolverines (12-0) reached a season-high No. 2 after beating Ohio State, which dropped the Buckeyes three spots to No. 5.

TCU (12-0) has its highest ranking since reaching No. 2 in the 2015 season, and USC has its best ranking this late in the season since finishing the 2016 season at No. 3. Other top-10 teams to fall were LSU, Clemson and Oregon. LSU's loss to Texas A&M dropped those Tigers five spots to No. 11. Clemson's loss to South Carolina sent it falling three spots to No. 10 The Ducks' fourth-quarter collapse against Oregon State cost Oregon a spot in the Pac-12 title game and five spots in the poll, where it fell to No. 15. Alabama was No. 6, just ahead of Tennessee, which beat the Crimson Tide on a last-second field goal at home earlier this season. No. 8 Penn State and No. 9 Washington both have their best rankings of the season. The Huskies haven't been in the top 10 since the 2018 season, when they peaked at No. 6. - AP College Football
