Iowa State redshirt senior QB Kyle Kempt has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.

A stellar beat for the Cyclones. Kempt -- originally a member of Oregon State -- earned the additional year due to the coaching circumstances in Corvallis, as the quarterback transferred to a JUCO program after Mike Riley left for Nebraska following the 2014 season. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound gunslinger would go on to walk on at Iowa State following the 2015 campaign. After replacing an absent Jacob Park midway through the most recent season, Kempt went on to post 1,787 yards passing to pair with a 15/3 TD/INT ratio. He'll again work as starter for the Cyclones during the coming campaign. In that capacity during the 2017 season, he led the team to a 5-3 record in his eight opportunities.

Wisconsin junior WR Quintez Cephus announced he was taking a "forced leave of absence" from the Badgers while he deals with a legal issue.

Cephus was informed by the Dane County (WI) District Attorney’s office that they will pursue unspecified charges against him for an incident that took place in April. The specifics of what that charge is has yet to be released. Cephus led the Badgers in receiving touchdowns in 2017 with six, and is expected -- assuming he's back with the club -- to be one of the go-to targets in the Wisconsin passing game. Wisconsin is expected to release a statement on the issue in the coming days.

Penn State redshirt junior QB Tommy Stevens was wearing a walking boot on his right foot during the team photo shoot on Saturday.

This is not the first time we have seen Stevens in a boot, as he was also wearing one during spring practices. The exact nature of his leg injury is not known, nor is it known whether he will be available for Penn State's opener against Appalachian State on Sept. 1. His immediate absence wouldn't be felt by the team in any tangible way, but would become problematic should starter Trace McSorley suffer an injury. Redshirt freshman Sean Clifford will likely back up McSorley so long as Stevens is sidelined.

TCU sophomore QB Shawn Robinson has been named starter for the upcoming season.

This was one that's been more/less a foregone conclusion since Kenny Hill exited stage left this winter having expended his collegiate eligibility. Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson played coy during the spring and summer -- in mid-July he let on that Robinson "probably" had the edge in competition -- but the cat's officially out of the bag now. The 6-foot-2, 228-pound Robinson had one start last season, when Trill was unavailable versus Texas Tech due to a concussion. In that initial foray of extended action, he hit on just 6-of-17 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown while rushing for an additional 84 yards. While these numbers are plenty forgettable, it should be remembered that Robinson was playing as a true freshman at the time and had not received any serious run prior to that late November contest. Coming out of high school, the 247Sports composite board ranked the four-star signal-caller as the No. 198 overall prospect in the 2017 class.

Texas Tech junior QB McClane Carter handled the bulk of first-team reps in practice this week.

Carter (6'3/220) is competing in camp with Jett Duffey for the right to start in HC Kliff Kingsbury's high-octane attack this coming season. This has been one of the steadier competitions of August, with Carter consistently seeing first-team work ahead of his compatriot. Kingsbury has not named a starting quarterback for the Red Raiders' opener against Ole Miss, but we would be surprised at this juncture if Carter finds himself backing up Duffey to open the year.

Ohio State's investigation into HC Urban Meyer's role in the case of former WR coach Zach Smith is expected to conclude on Sunday.

Buckeyes president Michael Drake said earlier this week that the investigation was not a concrete timetable and would be "finished when it's finished," but it actually appears that this will, indeed, be wrapping up right around the initial 14-day estimation laid out when the investigation began. The results of the inquiry will be shared with OSU's board of trustees next week, after which a decision figures to come down the pike one way or another on Meyer's fate. One possible split-the-middle option between firing Meyer and simply moving on would be for the university to suspend the coach to start the year.

LSU junior WR Drake Davis was arrested on Friday on a count of second degree battery.

While he was technically booked on the count of second degree battery, Davis' arrest on Friday was the culmination of an apparently long, troubled history of alleged abuse toward his ex-girlfriend, with four incidents -- including allegations of multiple strangulations -- said to have occurred between April of 2017 and June of the current year. LSU has moved to indefinitely suspend the wideout following his arrest. At this juncture, it's very possible this suspension lasts into the regular season, as quick legal turnarounds are rare in these kinds of cases. While Davis played in all 13 of LSU's games last season, the speedy wideout managed just three catches for the campaign. We could see some rejiggering on the depth chart with his being suspended, but we don't count this as a major loss.

Alabama redshirt junior T Matt Womack underwent surgery on Friday after breaking a bone in his foot on Thursday.

Womack's father told ESPN's Alex Scarborough it's the same bone that caused Womack to miss all of spring practices. He also told Scarborough that surgery went well, but that the 6-foot-7, 324-pound tackle will miss "several weeks" while he recovers. Alex Leatherwood and Jedrick Wills will likely compete for the starting spot while he's out -- Womack was not a lock to be the starter to the start the season, anyway -- against Louisville on September 1.

Auburn received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 ATH Zion Puckett.

Puckett was also known to be considering Stanford and Notre Dame, and he also took official visits to Ohio State, Georgia Tech and South Carolina. He's been recruited to play both wide receiver and play corner, but it sounds like Puckett (6'0/195) will start on the defensive side of the football. With plus speed and a quality frame, he could be an outside player at the position for the Tigers, with enough shiftiness to cover in the slot if necessary. The commit gives Auburn 15 commits for 2019, and they now rank 10th nationally in 247 Sports rankings.

Louisville HC Bobby Petrino guaranteed that his team would defeat Alabama in their season-opener.

"I believe we're gonna go beat them. And we will go beat them," Petrino said. This is not the first bit of trash talking that we've heard from the Cardinals, who are seemingly attempting to talk themselves into competitiveness. Realistically, that opener is probably going to get out of hand relatively early. Louisville is not only working in a new starting quarterback in Jawon "Puma" Pass, their defense is likely to be a work-in-progress (charitably put) throughout the season.

Nebraska HC Scott Frost said that he and his staff have not yet settled on a starting quarterback for the coming season.

Frost tossed off the ol' "if the season started today, two would play" line on Friday, with the pair of combatants in question being true freshman Adrian Martinez and redshirt freshman Tristan Gebbia. We don't truly expect him to roll with two quarterbacks to any significant degree in-season, as Frost already said in late July that he hoped to have a starter set in stone with about a week to go before the Huskers kick off their season against Akron on Sept. 1.

Tennessee received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 S Jaylen McCollough.

McCollough's pledge was going to have an SEC flavor to it even had he not sided with the Volunteers, as his other three finalists were South Carolina, Auburn and Alabama. With the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder now in Tennessee's corner, HC Jeremy Pruitt is up to 19 pledges for the class. Four of those come from defensive backs. While McCullough was actually first offered by Tennessee back in 2016, when the team was helmed by Butch Jones, it's Pruitt -- who himself was recruiting him while at Georgia -- and company who got this one done. On the 247Sports composite board, McCullough checks in as the No. 131 overall prospect in the 2019 class.
