Making the rounds on a Monday ...
- Cincinnati needed that win over NC State.
- Opponents have focused on taking away the UConn run. Would the Huskies be a good academic fit for the ACC?
- Dominique Brown has drawn comparisons to Michael Bush at Louisville.
- Cory King replaced Chris Jacobson on the Pitt offensive line. The "high-octane offense" has been a dud so far, writes Joe Starkey of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.
- Greg Schiano says the retooled offensive line played well against Ohio. Schiano isn't apologizing for Mohamed Sanu's heavy workload.
- USF receiver/returner Terrence Mitchell has a concussion. Skip Holtz and his coaches have gotten a jump on preparing for Pitt.
- The No. 1 priority for Syracuse in its game against Toledo was to establish the run. Toledo wants the Syracuse victory to be given to the Rockets instead.
- Geno Smith piled up yards, but not enough points for West Virginia. The Mountaineers are moving forward.
- Here are Big East power rankings from Athlon.
