Pushaun Brown finished with 90 yards on 23 carries as Maine lost its seventh straight against the Wildcats.
The SEC would benefit in many ways if conference divisions are eliminated, including making sure the best teams play for the league title each year.
In 2006, the Cardinal were 1-11 and a Pac-12 laughingstock. Ten years later, including three Rose Bowls in the last four years, they're on top.
We continue our Big 12 draft with rounds 8-14.
Though Alabama is off to a tremendous start, Georgia isn't far behind with eight commits, including six ranked in the ESPN 300.
Miami, Clemson, Florida State and North Carolina have 21 of the ACC's 24 verbal commitments from players in the ESPN 300 for the class of 2017.
Stanford and Washington are in the best shape of any conference teams, but most of the others are off to slow starts.
