  South Florida coach Jeff Scott was fired Sunday, one day after his team gave up 621 yards of offense in a 54-28 loss to Temple that dropped him to 4-26 at the school. Special teams coordinator Daniel Da Prato will be the interim coach for the remainder of the season. "When Jeff came to Tampa in December of 2019, we had high expectations for where he could take our football program," USF athletic director Michael Kelly said in a statement. "While he did so many things right, including rebuilding our culture, pushing forward our indoor performance facility, and engaging our community, the on-the-field results fell well below our standards." South Florida is 1-8 this season, 0-5 in the American Athletic Conference. "I would like to thank our players, coaches and staff members for all their hard work during my time as the head coach at USF," Scott said. "I will miss this team and will do anything in my power to help them in the future. I am disappointed that our hard work didn't translate to more success on the field, but I am confident that we have set a new foundation." Scott joined USF after serving five years as the co-offensive coordinator at Clemson, which went 70-5 over the stretch. Defensive coordinator Bob Shoop was also fired. Co-defensive coordinator Ernie Sims will take over for Shoop. - AP College Football

  Coby Calvin and Junior Wily returned interceptions for touchdowns and Wagner picked up its first win of the season with a 37-26 victory over Long Island University on Friday night. Zachary Palmer-Smith staked Wagner (1-6, 1-2 Northeast Conference) to a 7-0 lead on the Seahawks' first possession, capping a 10-play, 74-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run. Wagner took a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter when Calvin returned an interception 60 yards for a touchdown. The Sharks cut their deficit to a point after Pat Bowen scored on an 8-yard run and Michael Coney missed the extra-point kick.

Naiem Simmons caught on a 29-yard touchdown pass from Nick Kargman and Wagner led 21-13 midway through the period. The teams traded field goals before halftime. Coney's second field goal pulled LIU (0-7, 0-3) within 24-19 early in the third quarter, but Rickey Spruill capped a 12-play, 72-yard drive with a 1-yard scoring run and Wagner led 30-19 with 5:55 left in the period. The Seahawks' final score was a 52-yard pick-6 by Wily with 10:09 left in the game. Derek Green passed for 232 yards but threw three interceptions for LIU. Backup QB Luca Stanzani had a 10-yard touchdown toss to Owen Glascoe, who totaled 130 yards on 10 receptions. - Wagner/AP College Football

  Baylor sophomore receiver Seth Jones announced Wednesday that he will enter the NCAA transfer portal. Jones said he will enter the portal on Dec. 5, the day after NCAA championship selections are made. That's the beginning of a 45-day window for players to enter the portal. The third-year sophomore has played in all six games this season, making seven catches for 73 yards and no touchdowns. Since he exceeded three games, this season will count against his eligibility. Jones will be the second Baylor player to enter the transfer portal this fall following running back-receiver Josh Fleeks. - Waco Tribune Herald

  USF's injury concerns grew Tuesday when the Bulls announced that starting quarterback Gerry Bohanon will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. The Baylor transfer hurt his right (throwing) shoulder in the first half of last week's home loss to Tulane and will require surgery. Bohanon started every game for the Bulls this season and had thrown for 501 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions over the past three games. His 386 rushing yards this year ranked second on the team. Bohanon has one more year of eligibility. With Bohanon out, third-year quarterback Katravis Marsh will inherit the job. The Miami Central product started one game in each of his first two seasons and is 45-of-98 with six interceptions and three touchdown passes in his Bulls career. - Tampa Tribune

  Sometime Sunday, USF coach Jeff Scott made one of the hardest no-brainer decisions he'll ever make with the Bulls. He named Baylor transfer Gerry Bohanon the starting quarterback over incumbent Timmy McClain. Identifying Bohanon as the starter was the easy part. The first time he stepped on campus (for his official visit), he watched film with the staff until 1 a.m. When the Bulls tallied the grit score for players' work ethic and leadership during summer workouts, Bohanon was second on the team. When every offensive player confidentially listed the unit's top three leaders on the eve of preseason camp, Bohanon ¬≠finished in the top three...despite having not yet taken a single rep with them.

No other quarterback received a vote. When Scott gathered his team to address a sloppy start to practice a few days later, he didn't have to say a word; Bohanon stepped in to tell his new teammates they weren't living up to the standard. "The best part about it?" Scott said Tuesday. "Everybody listened." Bohanon backed it up on the field. Through 10 practices, Scott said Bohanon completed 80 percent of his passes ­- 13 points higher than anyone else. His decision-making graded out at 90 percent, even though he was new to the offense. And everyone around the program knows how Bohanon helped turn two-win Baylor into a Big 12 champion - the kind of transformation the Bulls would love to experience. His consistency and knowledge could be the difference between turning some of last fall's close losses (BYU, Tulsa, UCF) into wins. When Scott gathered his staff Sunday to pick a starter, the vote was unanimous. "Crystal clear," Scott said. - Tampa Tribune
