  09/30/20 - QB Mac JonesrJr/2022, Alabama, 6-2, 214 (DS#6 QB) + More +

  Former Kentucky commit Mac Jones threw for 249 yards and two touchdowns despite sitting for part of the third and all of the fourth quarters at Missouri, helping Nick Saban improve to 14-0 in season openers with the Crimson Tide. A date with Texas A&M seems appetizing on paper, but Saban's 7-1 record against the Aggies (the loss came in 2012, their first SEC meeting) raises an eyebrow. Nick Saban says: "I think the spirit of the game was different in terms of having fans but I don't think the competitive spirit that the players played with and how they played and how hard they tried, I don't think that was any different than it ever is." - Herald Leader

  09/30/20 - DT Glen LoganrSr/2021, LSU, 6-3, 339 (DS#16 DT) + More +

  Starting defensive tackle Glen Logan will not be playing in the team's next game against Vanderbilt, Orgeron said. The senior did not dress out for the Mississippi State game on Saturday. Orgeron did not offer specifics for why Logan will not be playing, but he said Logan will be back for LSU's Week 3 home game against Missouri. "Glen Logan will not be available this week and he will be available for Missouri," Orgeron said. The 6-foot-3, 339-pound Destrehan High graduated moved inside from defensive end, where he recorded 20 tackles, 2 1/2 tackles for loss and 1 1/2 sacks in 2019. The Tigers' four-man defensive front was already entering the season without its other projected starting defensive tackle, Tyler Shelvin, who opted out of the season to prepare for the NFL draft. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  09/30/20 - WR Elijah MooreJr/2022, Mississippi, 5-09, 185 (DS#15 WR) + More +

  Lane Kiffin wants Elijah Moore to break records. "I thought Elijah was really special from looking at film last year and getting to work with him," Kiffin said. "When I first met him I told him 'Hey, you've got to work harder than anyone in the country because you're going to shatter the school record for most catches in a year." Moore is well on his way to set the records Kiffin wants him to. The junior receiver caught 10 passes for 227 yards in Ole Miss' 51-35 loss against No. 6 Florida Saturday. He finished six yards shy of tying A.J. Brown's record for most receiving yards in a single game in Ole Miss history and had another huge play taken off the board too. He caught a slip pass and ran 22 yards after the catch for a touchdown but that play was taken off the board because of a holding penalty.

Kiffin's confidence in Moore's ability to shatter records relates to what he was able to do with Cooper and others. Kiffin coached Cooper to Alabama's single-season receptions and receiving yards records and did the same for pass-catcher Marqise Lee at USC. "As you saw today, had we had a full 12 games I think he would've done that," Kiffin said of Moore. "It'll be a lot harder obviously with 10 conference games and no non-conference games." When asked about Kiffin's expectations on him, Moore said he doesn't care about individual records. His team lost. That's all that matters. No matter how well the offense played, that wasn't good enough. But that's not necessarily true. This performance was a stark departure from the way Ole Miss' offense operated in 2019. Last year's Rebels were as run-first as any team in the SEC. They finished with the No. 9 rushing offense in the country and the No. 102 passing offense. They only passed for more than 250 yards as a team in one game, and that came in a losing effort. - The Clarion Ledger

  09/30/20 - OT *Jalen MayfieldrSo/2021, Michigan, 6-5, 320 (DS#3 OT) + More +

  Jalen Mayfield, who announced plans in August to forego his remaining three years of eligibility and declare for the NFL draft, has been granted permission to play during the abbreviated Big Ten season. Head coach Jim Harbaugh revealed the decision Monday on the "Inside Michigan Football" radio show. "Specifically with Jalen Mayfield, he did submit a waiver to be able to come back and play," Harbaugh told host Jon Jansen. "And that waiver has been granted. "I think there's a few stipulations that he has to do, but I think that waiver has been granted that he can return." Harbaugh did not disclose the stipulations, but offensive line coach Ed Warinner said he anticipates having the 6-foot-5, 320-pound Mayfield back this week as the Wolverines begin padded practices. "Everything looks good for Jalen to return," Warinner said on the show. "He's back on campus taking classes. He'll be back in action this week, helping at practice and going through the training." - Ann Arbor News

  09/30/20 - QB DEriq KingrSr/2021, Miami (FL), 5-09, 202 (DS#8 QB) + More +

  Because of D'Eriq King's size (5-9), scouts want to see exceptional accuracy from UM's quarterback. Without that, he will remain a fringe NFL prospect, according to two scouts. And that's why it would be helpful if King improves his deep passing game. He made a terrific throw to Dee Wiggins for a touchdown Saturday, but for the season, he's just 5 for 20 on passes thrown at least 20 yards in the air, with two touchdowns. But here's the good news, which NFL people should not overlook: No quarterback in FBS has thrown as many passes (94) without an interception … Overall, King is 22nd in the country in passing efficiency...His 66.7 percent completion percentage (63 for 94) is 20th in the country and better than his 63.5 in his great year for Houston in 2018 and enormously better than his 52.7 in four games last season. - Miami Herald

  One year ago this month, Elijah Collins took a handoff and ran 29 yards before he got tackled and brought Spartan Stadium to its feet. As a true freshman, he injected life into a seemingly dead Michigan State offense and followed it up often enough to finish with almost 1,000 yards rushing. In Collins' eyes, it was a decent debut. It is nowhere near the full show he wants to present in this backfield before he is finished. "Last year, I had a few big runs, but I never really broke any home," Collins said. "That's one thing I really wanted to focus on, getting that breakaway speed at the end and really finishing my runs to turn them into touchdowns and not just long runs." After taking hold of the role with a 192-yard breakout performance against Western Michigan in Week 2, Collins finished the year with with 988 yards and five touchdowns to earn honorable mention All-Big Ten honors.

It was a season of singles and doubles in his eyes. He had the 29-yard dash on his first carry and finished with a long of 58, but his 4.5 per-carry average and five touchdowns showcase a player who kept drives moving but rarely finished them. Michigan State finished 104th in scoring offense and 7-6 overall, so Collins believes his breakout year was still far from hitting its peak. "I know I could have done better. There were a lot of things I really didn't know," said Collins, who had two carries before last season. "But after playing and looking at my own film and studying a lot, I would like to have a better year." - Lansing State Journal

  09/30/20 - RB Zach CharbonnetSo/2023, Michigan, 6-0, 220 (DS#10 RB) + More +

  This might explain why Michigan's running game struggled through much of the 2019 season. The unit, full of inexperience and youth to begin with, was a banged up bunch most of the fall. While it might not come as much of a surprise, Wolverines offensive coordinator Josh Gattis confirmed the news Thursday during a conference call with reports, citing freshmen Zach Charbonnet and Hassan Haskins specifically. "Everyone knows Zach's tough," Gattis said. "He battled through some injuries in high school, (and) he came in a little banged up and needed to get cleaned up. Then he battled through a number of different injuries last year."

Charbonnet, a four-star prospect in Michigan's 2019 recruiting class, and Haskins, who redshirted in 2018 and was moved to running back prior to last season, spent most of last spring sidelined due to injury. That was known. But both players started the season less than 100 percent, evident in their workload early on. Charbonnet, who led Michigan with 726 yards and 11 touchdowns rushing, combined for 41 carries during the first two games of the season - including 33 carries for 100 yards and three touchdowns against Army. Over the next two games, Charbonnet's carries took a drastic decline - two in a blowout loss to Wisconsin and five in a win over Rutgers. "To see a guy that was a true freshman kind of battle through adversity and injuries and still play the full season says a lot," Gattis said. "But he's been able to spend his offseason focusing on his body." - Ann Arbor News

  09/30/20 - WR *Rashod BatemanJr/2021, Minnesota, 6-1, 210 (DS#2 WR) + More +

  University of Minnesota receiver Rashod Bateman's eligibility was restored by the NCAA and he is now able to compete for the Gophers this season. Bateman will wear No. 0 this season, becoming the first Gopher ever to do so. He is switching from No. 13 to No. 0 because there is zero tolerance for racism in Minnesota's culture and it is a call to action to end racism in our society. Bateman, who previously announced he was forgoing this season because of personal health concerns related to COVID-19, has played in 26 games for Minnesota and in two years has already established himself as one of the best receivers ever to wear the Maroon and Gold. He has 111 career catches (tied for 12th in school history) for 1,923 yards (tied for eighth in school history) and 17 touchdowns (tied for fifth in school history). - Minnesota Football
