Clemson Virginia Tech off to strong starts with new QBs

Not every school can be like No. 2 Clemson, which is going for a second straight national championship despite replacing two-time Heisman Trophy finalist Deshaun Watson at quarterback. Across the Atlantic Coast Conference, schools are struggling with new QBs — some freshmen or sophomores, others upperclassman playing for the first time. Clemson (3-0, 1-0 ACC) has had success with junior Kelly Bryant, and No. 13 Virginia Tech (3-0) is rolling behind redshirt freshman Josh Jackson . A handful of other ACC teams are still figuring things out. "We knew we had an opportunity to pick up where we left off," Clemson co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott said. "Obviously, there were questions on Kelly,

Fast frosh Frogs Reagor Snell speedy impacts at No 16 TCU

TCU coach Gary Patterson was getting frustrated with his linebackers during preseason practice when they had pursuit angles on Kenedy Snell, and then were unable to tackle the 5-foot-8 freshman running back. Snell turned a short pass into a 71-yard sprint untouched down the sideline against SMU for a touchdown in the last game for the 16th-ranked Horned Frogs (3-0). In that same game, receiver Jalen Reagor made a leaping catch in the end zone on the final play of the first half to put TCU ahead to stay.

Cotton Bowl Foundation to match donations to Mike Sadler scholarship fund

EAST LANSING – The Cotton Bowl Foundation has stepped forward to help boost the Michael Sadler Foundation. The foundation, which represents the Cotton Bowl Classic, announced it will match up to $50,000 in donations given to the Mike Sadler Legacy Football Scholarship Endowment from now until Michigan State’s spring game in April. That could mean at least $100,000 for the fund that was created in July 2016 after the death of the Spartans’ former All-America punter. “Not only did Mike leave a lasting impact on the Spartan Nation, but he will long be remembered by the Cotton Bowl family,” Rick Baker, Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic President/CEO, said in a release. “We want to honor Mike’s legacy

Indiana to honor late coach with alternate uniforms

When the Indiana Hoosiers take on the Georgia Southern Eagles this Saturday, the Hoosiers’ traditional red and white uniforms will look a little bit different than usual. Indiana will be sporting new “Hep’s Rock” alternate uniforms, which pays tribute to the 10-year anniversary of the passing of former IU head coach, Terry Hoeppner. The rock-print pattern on the jersey numbers represent Hoeppner’s creation of players rubbing “The Rock” before the start of every home game. In 2005, Hoeppner had a limestone boulder that was installed at in the practice field removed and installed at an end zone of Memorial Stadium. Hoeppner died of brain cancer on June 19, 2007, and The Rock (renamed "Hep's Rock"

Baylor gets back 2016 leading rusher two starting DBs for Oklahoma game

They may be winless, but at least Baylor will be getting some much-needed reinforcements for their game against No. 3 Oklahoma this weekend. According to head coach Matt Rhule, three projected starters — running back Terence Williams (pictured), safety Taion Sells and cornerback Grayland Arnold — are all expected to play in the Week 4 game against the Sooners. Neither Williams nor Arnold have played this season because of injury, while Sells completed a three-game suspension last week. Williams led the Bears last season with 1,048 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns. The junior underwent offseason shoulder surgery, leading to his absence for the first quarter of the year. With Williams rehabbing
