Notre Dame is without six players who fit those parameters, but five were part-time starters at best, if not less this season. All that earned him ACC quarterback of the week honors. It certainly looked dominant against Florida State and very good against Duke. At least it is better than pay-per-view. Flipping to offense, how is the Hokies offensive line? Sophomore Jordan Genmark Heath is also a Buck option.

Walker and Gaines lead a defense that allows 2. Each and every week, Kareem has needed to be helped off the field at some point. The results, at least so far, have been mixed. Taking 53 carries for yards will do that. They ended that fun with a win at Louisville. The Cardinals enjoyed their best day of the season in a victory against Kent State, snagging a conference victory in their first MAC game.

Quarterback Riley Neal led the way noonnkick completing 30 of his 50 passes for yards and four touchdowns, adding 61 yards and another score on 11 rushes.

Sixth-year senior Kyle Chung can play — has played — all five positions on the line, so his versatility allows line coach Vance Vice some freedom moving his pieces around.

Can the Hokies take advantage of that? Virginia Tech went back on the road and beat a genuinely good Duke team In other words, Ruhland will be needed and Eichenberg cannot noticeably drop off if the Irish are to maintain the offensive success found in the last notrs weeks. They fared better with the Owls in town; Hartman completed 15 of 17 passes for yards and four touchdowns.

The Wolverines tried their hardest to gift a game to Northwestern, yet came back with 20 unanswered points to win The problem, being so young, is consistency. Without running back Jeremy Larkin — who retired from football last Monday due to a diagnosis of cervical stenosis — the Wildcats struggled mightily to run the ball.


If it succeeds, this skeptic will be convinced. The Da,e run defense is not what one expects it to be under head coach David Shaw.

Considering Ball State has not won multiple conference games sincethis start creates a decent chance at matching that pair, if not more. Taking 53 carries for yards will do that. Facing Notre Dame, freshman quarterback Sam Hartman completed 12 of 24 noonkico and junior receiver Greg Dortch caught only six for 56 yards.

Pittsburgh should at least be able to score more this weekend even though they are 5-point underdogs against Syracuse Eichenberg was to have that help for a full season, not just five weeks. We knew that would be the case.

The continued emergence of senior rover Asmar Bilal has reduced the anticipation of a Simon role to nearly none. Tranquill will play with a cast and is not expected to miss any time, but should he need to, Bilal or Simon could fill in. I have to do a better job of making sure they are in the moment. The Hurricanes visit Blacksburg on Nov. At least it is better than pay-per-view.

Starting in place of injured Josh Jackson, quarterback Ryan Willis went of for yards and three touchdowns. The two rookie inside linebackers got out of their gaps and missed tackles. Few truly do so before the game even begins.


That was never a strong possibility, but losing their first two by lopsided scores left the Seminoles in position for such quips.

I have high hopes. The Cardinals enjoyed their best day of the season in a victory against Kent State, snagging a conference victory in their first MAC game. The offensive line is much improved this season over recent years. For context, Michigan allows 2. Senior quarterback Brandon Wimbush used 17 to gain 77 of his own.

And In That Corner … The No. 24 Virginia Tech Hokies and Lane Stadium

The service academies rarely combine to score more than the Virginia Tech held the Blue Devils to 93 yards on 33 rushes, a 2. Willis, a transfer from Kansas, had big game against Duke, moving the offense with his passing.

The Seminoles would be with games against four more top teams remaining. Webb, a junior college transfer and the expected replacement for Alexander at corner, injured his Achilles working out his first day on campus.

Virginia Tech has lost so many expected defensive contributors over the last few months, keeping track of them from afar is somewhat difficult. She was the matriarch of that neighborhood. As soon as the next day, Kelly was shouldering the onus for the Notre Dame collapse amid the noise.
