 Dylan McCaffrey, Northern Colorado, Player News


  Dylan McCaffrey threw for one touchdown and ran for another and Northern Colorado defeated Southern Utah 17-9 on Saturday night. McCaffrey, the former Michigan quarterback now playing for his dad, had modest passing numbers - 11 of 23 for 74 yards - but rushed for 100 yards on 14 carries. Tru Wilson added 85 yards rushing and the Bears finished with 251 yards on the ground. The Bears (3-5, 2-3 Big Sky Conference), who had allowed an average of 45 points in their past three games, didn't allow a touchdown and twice forced field goals when the Thunderbirds (1-7, 0-5) reached the red zone. Northern Colorado led 10-6 early in the fourth quarter before an 18-play, 90-yard drive ended with a 1-yard run by McCaffrey to give the Bears an 11--point lead. Southern Utah added a field goal on its next possession then forced a punt, but the Thunderbirds' final drive ended on downs near midfield. SUU's Justin Miller completed 29 of 50 passes for 307 yards. - AP College Football

  Jaren Mitchell made a bobbling catch of a deflected pass from Dylan McCaffrey for an overtime touchdown that gave Northern Colorado a 17-10 win over Northern Arizona in a Big Sky Conference opener. Northern Arizona, which came in with a victory over Pac-12 Arizona, couldn't match the Bears' OT score after George Robinson was brought down for a loss by Elijah Anderson-Taylor on a fourth-and-1 from the 16-yard-line. Luis Aguilar kicked a 21-yard field goal for the Lumberjacks to tie the game early in the fourth quarter but missed a 33-yarder with just under two minutes remaining in regulation. - AP College Football

  The new Northern Colorado quarterback has a big head, the offensive coordinator kidded. That same O.C. was grounded twice during camp, the head coach cracked. Those McCaffrey boys, just full of jokes. On this, they're quite serious: Teaming up to help lead the Bears back to football prominence. The Mac-to-Mac-to-Mac connection in Greeley features quarterback Dylan McCaffrey transferring in from Michigan and his big brother Max putting NFL tryouts on the backburner to serve as offensive coordinator. They're joining forces with their dad, Ed, the longtime NFL receiver who was hired as head coach in December 2019 and will finally make his college coaching debut Sept. 3 at Colorado (the Bears' season in 2020 was postponed due to the virus).

"We all want to get better. We all want to win football games," Dylan said Wednesday after practice. "That really brings the respect in, along with the love." The McCaffreys have long been one of the first families of football in Colorado. There's also Christian, a running back for the Carolina Panthers, and Luke, a quarterback at Rice. Of course, the glue is their mom, Lisa, who's always at games. As for the pressure of dealing with such a well-known last name - dad was a three-time Super Bowl winner with Denver and San Francisco - Dylan dismissed it: "I know my family because they're my family." - Denver Post

  Former Michigan quarterback Dylan McCaffrey has transferred to Northern Colorado to play for a head coach he knows well - his father, Ed. McCaffrey entered his name in the NCAA Transfer Portal on Jan. 21 and announced Sunday night on Twitter he will be played for the Bears. "Extremely honored to announce I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at The University of Northern Colorado," he wrote above a panel of four photos. He wore No. 10 at Michigan and will wear No. 12 at UNC. McCaffrey opted out of the 2020 season last September and his plan was to transfer after graduating from Michigan. He was expected to compete for the starting job with Joe Milton and Cade McNamara, but made his decision last September after the Big Ten announced its plans to play a nine-game season beginning the following month. He was one of three big-name Michigan players to opt out of the season, joining receiver Nico Collins and cornerback Ambry Thomas, who are both preparing for the NFL Draft and just participated in the Senior Bowl. Right tackle Jalen Mayfield had opted out but returned to play before suffering a high ankle sprain. - Detroit News

  Former Michigan quarterback Dylan McCaffrey announced on social media he plans to transfer to Northern Colorado, where his dad is the head coach. In a Twitter post on Sunday night, McCaffrey wrote: "Extremely honored to announce I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at The University of Northern Colorado. Go Bears!!" McCaffrey threw for 242 career yards and three touchdowns as a backup at Michigan. He chose not to return to the Wolverines for a fourth year. His father, Ed, was hired by Northern Colorado on Dec. 12, 2019. He's yet to coach a game for the Bears following the decision by the Big Sky Conference to postpone its fall 2020 football season to the spring of 2021. - AP College Football

  It took a while, but Dylan McCaffrey has finally signaled his planned departure. The Michigan quarterback entered his name into the NCAA's transfer portal on Thursday, a Michigan spokesman confirmed to MLive, likely bringing an end to his career in Ann Arbor. McCaffrey opted out of playing the 2020 season back in September, and planned to transfer then, MLive reported at the time. He figured to be part of the competition for Michigan's starting quarterback role, eventually won by Joe Milton. A senior, McCaffrey will have two years of eligibility remaining. He appeared in 13 games during his Michigan career, completing 18 of his 35 pass attempts for 242 yards and three touchdowns, but was plagued by injury. - Ann Arbor News

  Michigan quarterback Dylan McCaffrey is opting out of the upcoming season and is looking to transfer, a source close to the situation confirmed to The Detroit News on Wednesday. This news comes on the heels of the Big Ten announcing it will start a nine-game season Oct. 23-24. McCaffrey, who was competing for the starting job with Joe Milton and Cade McNamara, will graduate from Michigan in December and have two years of eligibility remaining. He is not the only Michigan player who has opted out. Receiver Nico Collins, who returned to play his final season rather than head to the NFL Draft after the bowl game earlier this year, reportedly has signed with an agent. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday that Collins signed with agent Drew Rosenhaus. Right tackle Jalen Mayfield and cornerback Ambry Thomas already have declared for the NFL Draft, and running back Christian Turner was the first Michigan player to announce his plans to opt out.

McCaffrey had the most experience of the returning quarterbacks at Michigan. In seven games last season, he was 10-of-20 for 116 yards and one touchdown as Shea Patterson's backup, while Milton was 3-of-7 for 59 yards and a touchdowns. McCaffrey played in six games in 2018 behind Patterson and was 8-of-15 for 126 yards and two touchdowns. He rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown last season and had 99 yards on 10 carries in 2018. - Detroit News

  Michigan football players continue to go through voluntary practices despite the Big Ten canceling the fall season, but there's a twist. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is keeping his players engaged by having them train for what essentially will be an NFL combine. It's scheduled to be held in Michigan Stadium on Oct. 24, the day Michigan was to have played Ohio State in the restructured 10-game Big Ten schedule that was scrapped last week. The players will practice combine-specific drills these next nine weeks, four days a week, to prepare for the event that expects to draw NFL scouts and the players' families. Michigan players returned for voluntary practices Aug. 10.

Holding a scouting combine at the stadium is an effort to allow NFL scouts an opportunity watch and test the players, who will not have an opportunity to play football this fall. In the event of a spring season, which the Big Ten currently is exploring, this could give players who are considering their next step, whether to remain at Michigan or head to the NFL, an opportunity to play a spring season and still pursue the NFL because NFL teams will already have their measurables. One player told The Detroit News this format is keeping the players "interested, for sure." Quarterback Dylan McCaffrey is completely focused on these practices and the Michigan NFL Combine. - Detroit News

  Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said his quarterbacks are doing what they can to stay in shape, throwing and working on the offense install every day. Harbaugh, who appeared Thursday on "The Rich Eisen Show," was asked how he will evaluate the quarterbacks heading into the upcoming season considering there was no spring practice, which was canceled when all on-campus activities were suspended in mid-March. Shea Patterson, the Wolverines' starting quarterback the last two seasons, has moved on to the NFL, and Michigan will break in a new starter. Dylan McCaffrey, Joe Milton and Cade McNamara will be part of an open competition once on-campus workouts and practices are allowed to begin. "That's to be seen," Harbaugh said about the evaluation process. "We've got some guys we really love and they've been champing at the bit. The guys are excited to get back to working out with the team, back to practicing, but our quarterbacks, in particular, they're champing at the bit, which is better."

McCaffrey has the most game experience. Last year he was 10-of-20 for 116 yards and one touchdown, while Milton was 3-of-7 for 59 yards and a touchdown. Harbaugh said the staff meets frequently with the quarterbacks in Zoom video conferencing sessions. "We've been installing football and told the guys, 'Hey, learn the system the best you can,'" Harbaugh said. "'Be an expert at it when we do get back together and also get in the best shape of your life and throw the football. Get out and throw it every day.' Each one has done that and taken advantage of that and gotten guys to throw to. - Ann Arbor News

  Missing spring football hurts for every team, but for a team breaking in a new starting quarterback, not to mention four new starters on the offensive line, this was a tough break for the Wolverines. It's a three-man competition - Dylan McCaffrey, Joe Milton and Cade McNamara - but really, this is about McCaffrey and Milton. Offensive coordinator Josh Gattis said they're starting with a blank slate, and last year's depth chart won't play a role. But clearly McCaffrey has the edge in terms of game experience as Shea Patterson's backup. - Detroit News

  Ohio State football coaches since Jim Tressell have publicly put a year-round emphasis on the annual rivalry game with Michigan. The Wolverines have not placed the same 52-week emphasis on The Game. Buckeye fans cite that as a factor in their teams' current eight-game winning streak in the rivalry. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, however, told NBC Sports' Mike Tirico on Wednesday that the losing streak definitely stirs an emotional response for him. "We gotta beat Ohio State," Haurbaugh said on 'Lunch Talk Live.' "Nothing makes us angrier than that, or me. That's what we're working toward every day. "We've beaten everybody else, but we haven't beaten them. And that's what we have to do - beat them, win a (Big Ten) championship, get ourselves in the playoffs, win a national championship." - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  With a spring practice, perhaps Michigan's quarterback competition would be clearer at this point. But since the Wolverines never got in a practice because college sports activities were suspended two months ago in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it remains fuzzy. This we know - Dylan McCaffrey, the backup to starter Shea Patterson last season, Joe Milton and Cade McNamara are competing for the starting job. But in offensive coordinator Josh Gattis' view, the Wolverines are "nowhere near to having a front-runner" at quarterback. Gattis met with reporters Thursday via Zoom to discuss a number of topics regarding the Michigan offense, including replacing four starters on the line - he said Michigan could be more athletic up front. But the quarterback competition is front and center.

There is no timetable when college football will resume, so for now, Gattis and his players will continue to hold virtual meetings. He said they have one install per week, and the players are on their own working out. "We got to get the reps, we got to get the battle going to figure out who's going to be our quarterback," Gattis said. "They're all even. They're all dead even. There's nobody out front, there's nobody left behind. Each guy is different. Each guy has a different strength and a different weakness than the other guys, and so it's a really interesting battle because we've got to be able to decide who's going to give us the best opportunity to win games. - Detroit News

  No surprise here: Shea Patterson is Michigan's starting quarterback. But backup Dylan McCaffrey also seems to be in coach Jim Harbaugh's plans. "All options are open that way, in terms of that," Harbaugh said Monday. "Would like to definitely play both." The seventh-ranked Wolverines open the season Saturday night against Middle Tennessee, and this is Patterson's second season with Michigan after transferring from Mississippi. He threw for 2,600 yards and 22 touchdowns last year. McCaffrey played in six games last season and attempted just 15 passes.

So Patterson has the clear edge in terms of game experience, but Harbaugh was asked anyway to confirm that he would in fact be the starter Saturday. "Yes," he replied. "God willing and the creek don't rise." Harbaugh was less clear about the running back spot, saying he hasn't decided who his top option is there. Michigan lost Karan Higdon and Chris Evans from last year's team. Harbaugh also said there's still competition taking place for kicking duties, with Quinn Nordin and Jake Moody in the mix. Nordin made 11 of 16 field goals last season. Moody handled kickoffs and also went 10 of 11 on field goals. - AP College Football
