  Brady Allen will stick around West Lafayette after all. Two weeks after announcing he'd enter the transfer portal following Purdue's coaching change from Jeff Brohm to Ryan Walters, the 2021 IndyStar Mr. Football winner has decided to stay at Purdue, a source confirmed to IndyStar. Purdue will need to replace the graduating Aidan O'Connell, who was second in the Big Ten with 3,490 passing yards this past season. The Boilermakers have already added Texas transfer Hudson Card to the quarterback competition.

Allen, a prep star at Gibson Southern, was a four-star quarterback and is expected to compete for Purdue's starter's job next season. He completed 1-of-3 passes for 8 yards this season with senior Austin Burton serving as the primary backup to O'Connell. Burton started in the Citrus Bowl loss to Iowa, with Michael Alaimo getting snaps in the blowout. - Indianapolis Star/News

Tyler Shough, who started for UO in 2020 and has spent the past two seasons at Texas Tech, announced he'll be returning to the Red Raiders for his senior season. Texas Tech hosts Oregon on Sept. 9. "Based on where I feel like I can go in the draft next year and also because I love this team so much and a lot of guys coming back, including coach (Joey) McGuire, coach (Zach) Kittley," Shough said of his reason for returning for a sixth year of college football. "I have such a great relationship with them and all the guys on staff to where it's just like, why would I want to leave when I feel like we're building that momentum where I really want to be a part of something special, especially with such a great team and a close-knit unit."

Shough completed 59.9% of his passes for 1,304 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions and ran for 269 yards and four scores in seven games this season, missing six weeks with a left shoulder injury.

  Tyler Shough threw for 242 yards and a touchdown and ran for two more scores as Texas Tech took advantage of three early turnovers to build a big lead and held on for a 42-25 win over Ole Miss in the Texas Bowl on Wednesday night. Shough, who finished with a career-high 111 yards rushing, accounted for three TDs in the first two quarters to help the Red Raiders (8-5) to a 26-7 halftime lead. Ole Miss quarterback Jaxson Dart had 361 yards passing with two TD throws and a scoring run. But, he threw two of his three interceptions and lost a fumble in the first half to put the Rebels in a huge hole. The victory gives Texas Tech its first eight-win season since 2013 and caps a successful debut for first-year coach Joey McGuire, who was given a new six-year, $26.6 million contract earlier Wednesday.

The loss continues a terrible stretch for Ole Miss (8-5), which dropped its final four games, and five of its last six, after opening the season 7-0. The Rebels played a sloppy game with five turnovers and eight penalties for 86 yards and had two defenders ejected for targeting. Ole Miss scored consecutive touchdowns to get within 35-25 with three minutes to go. But the Rebels attempted an onside kick after that, but Texas Tech's Loic Fouonji grabbed it and returned it 44 yards to push the lead to 42-25. The Rebels cut the lead to 26-13 on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Dart to Jordan Watkins with about nine minutes left in the third quarter. SaRodorick Thompson scored on a 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter, but Tech’s 2-point conversion run failed to leave the Red Raiders up 32-13. Dayton Wade fumbled on the next drive by Ole Miss to give Texas Tech the ball back, and the Red Raiders settled for a field goal to extend the lead to 35-13 with 9 1/2 minutes left. The Rebels finished with 197 yards rushing, led by freshman Quinshon Judkins, who had 91. Judkins finishes the season with 1,567 yards rushing, which is the second-most by a freshman in SEC history behind Hershel Walker, who had 1,616. - Texas Tech/AP College Football

  Louisville is finalizing a deal to hire Purdue's Jeff Brohm as its next head coach, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
