Elijah Holyfield's unique announcement

Evander Holyfield was "The Real Deal" ... and so was his son's verbal commitment to play football at the University of Georgia on Friday. Bring on the puppies

A bobbling football? No problem

Lenoir-Rhyne University DB Cliff Barrett intercepted a pass ... while falling down ... while the ball was twirling end over end. Someone check his gloves for duct tape.

Scout's Take: Elijah Holyfield

Holyfield should fit well within a Georgia offensive system that is not afraid to ride running backs -- like Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb, writes Tom Luginbill. Well-rounded (Insider)

OSU has too much fire power for V-Tech

ESPN's Jason Sehorn and Phil Steele say although Virginia Tech has a talented defense, it won't be able to match Ohio State's offensive fire power.


Steele: Illini can take down Kent State

College football analyst Phil Steele says coach Tim Beckman's recent firing will help Illinois respond in a big way tonight and get them past Kent State.


Meyer: QBs will learn who's starting

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer won't tell the rest of the world who his starting QB will be for Monday night's season opener, but Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett will find out Saturday, he said on 97.1 The Fan: "I told them who was ahead. It's so close that both [should] be ready."

From The Mag: Eric LeGrand still believes

Five years after a hit left him paralyzed, the former Rutgers standout says his lifelong love of football still sustains him: "Football made me who I am. I don't miss practice, I'll tell you that. But playing the game of football -- oh, I'd do anything to go back to it." His daily grind

Can MSU make playoff with a loss to OSU?

Mike Greenberg doesn't think the Spartans will make the College Football Playoff if they lose to the Buckeyes in November: "I don't think a one-loss team out of the Big Ten that doesn't get into the conference title game will get in, even if they're one of the four best teams in the country."


A matchup of powerhouse programs

ESPN's Jeannine Edwards says Notre Dame will be at a loss for words coming out of the tunnel Saturday night: "We live for moments like this, playing a powerhouse team like Texas in prime time on national television."

My thoughts from the first night: South Carolina's defense is improved, but Connor Mitch will need to play better if the Gamecocks plan to make any noise in the SEC East. Also, brutal loss for Derek Mason and Vanderbilt. But the Commodores defense looked good enough to keep them in some games this year.

Missed TDs, not INTs should haunt Rudock

ESPN's Desmond Howard says it's not the trio of interceptions that should bug Michigan's Jake Rudock: "If I'm Jim Harbaugh, I'm more concerned with Rudock missing those open touchdown throws."


You just can't catch this Wildcat

Arizona QB Anu Solomon did a great job avoiding would-be tacklers, even shedding one wrapped around his leg, to find Johnny Jackson for a 21-yard touchdown.

As noted by Ohio State's Jerry Emig, the Big Ten has the fewest number of FCS opponents in the Power Five this season. The B1G has only seven --Norfolk State, Richmond, E. Illinois, Illinois St., W. Illinois, Indiana St. and S. Illinois.
