  Arizona State quarterback Emory Jones is expected to enter the transfer portal, according to Arizona Sports' John Gambadoro. Jones arrived in Tempe last offseason after four years playing for the Florida Gators. After Jones started the first six games of the season, he was injured in the middle of the second quarter against Washington and didn't return. Backup Trenton Bourguet filled in and led the Sun Devils to an upset win over the then-ranked No. 21 Huskies.

Jones then started the following game against Stanford, a loss, before Arizona State went with Bourguet versus Colorado the next week. He was the starter from there. The only action Jones would see the rest of the way was when Bourguet was pulled against Washington State and Jones finished the game. On the year in eight appearances, Jones threw for 1,533 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions, completing 62.8% of his passes. - Arizona Sports

  One of the Cincinnati players who won't be available for the Fenway Bowl is senior tight end Josh Whyle. The 2022 first-team All-American Athletic Conference selection announced Tuesday he is opting out of the bowl game to focus on preparing for the 2023 NFL Draft. "What I'll miss most about Cincinnati is the locker room," Whyle wrote to his Bearcats coaches and teammates in a Twitter post. "None of our goals and dreams would've been possible if it wasn't for the tight-knit bond we created. Thank you for always believing in me, trusting me, and pushing me to be the best version of myself."

Whyle, a former La Salle High School standout, also thanked his family, or the "Whyle Crew," and the Cincinnati fans, who Whyle said "made everything worth it." "With that said, this chapter of my life has come to an end, and another is beginning," Whyle wrote. "...I am excited for what's to come." Whyle became a three-time all-conference honoree last week, earning a 2022 first-team nod to go along with his honorable mention in 2021 and second-team honors in 2020. Whyle finished with 32 receptions for 326 yards and three touchdowns this season. Whyle ends his Cincinnati career with 15 touchdowns, the most career scores by a tight end in program history. - Cincinnati Enquirer

  2022 RAY GUY AWARD FINALIST (BEST COLLEGIATE PUNTER): Mason Fletcher, Cincinnati,...Fletcher, a native of Melbourne, Australia, is joined by Rutgers' Adam Korsak and Michigan State's Bryce Baringer as finalists. The winner will be announced on the 32nd annual The Home Depot College Football Awards on Dec. 8 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET on ESPN. Fletcher ranks fourth nationally in average (46.7) and the Bearcats' net average of 44.69 sits second-best in the country. He has boomed 28 punts inside the 20 and sent 14 at least 50 yards with only two touchbacks in 55 attempts. Fletcher is a two-time AAC Special Teams Player of the Week and was selected as the Ray Guy National Punter of the Week earlier this season.

He shattered UC and AAC records at SMU last month. Fletcher booted an incredible 84-yard punt in the first quarter against the Mustangs, breaking the 46-year-old Cincinnati record by six yards as well as the AAC record by five yards. The previous UC mark of 78 yards was set by Mike Connell in 1976. Fletcher sent each of his three punts at least 50 yards with two dropping inside the 20-yard line versus SMU. His 65.0 average also shattered the UC and AAC marks, and remains the best single-game average in college football in 2022. Current Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber held the old UC mark of 58.7 - set in 2007. He is the third Bearcat to be named a finalist for the prestigious punting award, joining Kevin Huber (2008) and James Smith (2018). - Cincinnati Football

  Cincinnati has hired Louisville's Scott Satterfield to be its next coach, the university announced Monday. Louisville was 7-5 this season under Satterfield and earned a berth in the Fenway Bowl, where coincidentally it will face Cincinnati. He replaces Luke Fickell, who recently left to become coach at Wisconsin. Satterfield said he was honored to become coach of the Bearcats and looked forward to continuing the program's winning tradition. "I'm excited to take Cincinnati into the Big 12 this fall and ready to compete for championships," he said in a statement. "I'm most looking forward to meeting the current team and beginning to build relationships with these young men. We will hit the ground running today." Athletic director John Cunningham called Satterfield "a proven winner" and noted his competitiveness and culture-building.

"He's an innovative offensive mind and a leader who develops men on and off the field," Cunningham said in the statement. "He's the perfect fit to grow this program and lead us into the Big 12 next season and beyond." The Cardinals overcame starts of 2-3 overall and 0-3 in Atlantic Coast Conference play with a 5-2 stretch run highlighted by wins over then-No. 10 Wake Forest, Pittsburgh and North Carolina State. Their disappointing start fueled speculation at midseason that Satterfield would be fired before Louisville won 34-17 at Virginia to begin its second-half surge toward bowl eligibility. It also finished 4-4 in league play despite a 31-16 loss at Clemson. - AP College Football
