Wisconsin junior QB Alex Hornibrook (head) is questionable for Saturday's game against Penn State.

No change off of Hornibrook's status from earlier in the week, and at this juncture, we would tentatively imagine that Jack Coan will be making his second career start come kickoff against the Nittany Lions on Saturday. Hornibrook sat out against Northwestern two weekends ago while nursing a concussion, then managed to start against Rutgers last weekend before Coan entered in the second half. It would appear that the junior signal-caller is still not past his health concerns. It looks like Coan will be starting at this juncture, but we will continue to monitor this situation in case something changes in the next 72 hours.

Miami (OH) redshirt senior RB Alonzo Smith ran for 207 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries in a 42-21 blowout victory over Ball State on Tuesday.

Smith and the RedHawks ran all over the Ball State defense to the tun of 368 yards in the rout. The three scores give the senior multiple touchdowns in three-of-four games, and he has found the end zone nine times on the season. This was the sixth with of the season for Miami (OH), so they're now eligible for a bowl game. If Buffalo loses this weekend, there's also a slim chance that they could play in the conference championship game.

LSU redshirt sophomore TE Thaddeus Moss underwent foot surgery.

Moss (6'3/240) had already been ruled out for the remainder of the season by mid-October. He did not end up playing in a game prior to his being nixed for the campaign. The redshirt sophomore has now required two surgeries on the same foot over the last calendar year. There has been no indication that Moss might be able to make it back for LSU's bowl game. Looking like an offseason of rehab.

In Tuesday's release of the College Football Playoff rankings, Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Michigan were ranked Nos. 1-4.

No change once more in the top four, but we did see some interesting movement further down in the rankings. While Ohio State remains at No. 10, same as a week ago, UCF has jumped them, moving up from No. 11 to No. 9 on the strength of their dominating win over Cincinnati -- coupled with OSU's near-loss to Maryland -- on Saturday. Filling out the remainder of the top-10 rankings, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU and Washington State slot in at Nos. 5-8.

Football Scoop reports that should Purdue HC Jeff Brohm leave for another job, the program has already come up with a short list of replacement candidates.

Brohm is viewed by many as the top option to take over the vacant head-coaching position at Louisville. Should he leave, Troy's Neal Brown, Alabama's Butch Jones, Louisiana Tech's Skip Holtz, Clemson's Tony Elliott, Maryland's Matt Canada and Memphis' Mike Norvell are all reportedly being bandied about as possibilities to replace him. The name that sticks out like a sore thumb, here, would be Butch Jones, who has been working as an analyst at Alabama after being canned by Tennessee last autumn.

Texas Tech redshirt sophomore QB Jett Duffey (knee) should be considered questionable for Saturday's game against Baylor.

Duffey ceded the field to McLane Carter late in Saturday's loss to Kansas State. Said HC Kliff Kingsbury, "The knee's banged up and then he's had some other issues that occurred during the game." Just how the quarterbacking situation will shake out, here, is up in the air. While Duffey is now dinged up, Carter has returned from a slow-to-heal ankle injury. On top of that, Kingsbury said last week that Alan Bowman (lung) could potentially play against the Bears. We will have a better idea as to who will be taking the opening snaps in Saturday's game as the practice week progresses.

Trojan Insider's Peter Ghersen reports that USC will retain HC Clay Helton for the 2019 season.

Wow. If this turns out to be the case, it would be a major reversal on the general public expectation regarding Helton's fate at the end of the season. At least publicly, Helton has insisted down the stretch that he has support from the administration, even as the Trojans' season has begun to fall apart. 247Sports' Ryan Abraham backs up Ghersen's report in general feeling, writing that "[m]ost of the sources we talk to inside the program or working very closely with the program feel that Clay Helton is coming back." USC is currently sitting at 5-6 on the year and will need to beat Notre Dame on Saturday -- good luck -- in order to reach bowl eligibility. We've been exceedingly underwhelmed by Helton's methods throughout his time with the program and think they would be better off taking a new approach.

Penn State HC James Franklin sidestepped speculation that he could be a candidate for the job at USC should it open up, saying, "I don’t even think it’s fair or right to be talking about that with everything I understand about it."

Franklin said several times that 100% of his focus is on prepping Penn State for its game against Maryland this coming weekend, though he failed to outright refute the USC talk. At this juncture, Clay Helton remains head coach for the Trojans, though that may well change after they finish out the regular season against Notre Dame on Saturday. Penn State is in the midst of closing out a disappointing campaign in which they failed to make good on preseason expectations as a potential Playoff contender. Stay tuned.

The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reports that UMass is expected to part ways with HC Mark Whipple.

Feldman does not offer word as to when Whipple will officially be cut loose by the Minutemen, but it would appear to be in the cards for the coming days. UMass wrapped up a 4-8 season against Georgia on Saturday, losing that date with the Bulldogs by a 66-27 score. In his five seasons in this most recent stint with the program, Whipple has amassed a 16-44 record while failing to ever win more than four games in a season.

NJ.com's Keith Sargeant reports that "barring an unforeseen event in the next five days," Rutgers HC Chris Ash will be back for the 2019 season.

Sargeant cites two sources close to the decision-making process. One university official told him that so long as nothing goes sideways in the near future, "there's no way Ash isn't coming back." Rutgers AD Pat Hobbs has shown consistent support for his head coach, going so far as to respond to a summer hot seat column by CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd with a tweet telling Dodd to remove Ash from the list. Rutgers sits at just 1-10 this season, and Ash at 7-28 for his three-year career with the program. The Scarlet Knights will close out the season against Michigan State on Saturday.

Pitt redshirt sophomore C Jimmy Morrissey will miss the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.

Morrissey suffered the injury on Pitt’s final touchdown against Wake Forest on Saturday when he got twisted up amid a scrum of big uglies. Morrissey underwent surgery Monday. In so doing, he became Pitt’s third starter lost for the year. He joins ILB Quintin Wirginis and DT Keyshon Camp. Pitt redshirt freshman Owen Drexel is listed as the second-team center on the depth chart.

The Athletic's Dane Brugler reports that Florida State junior CB Levonta Taylor plans to return to school for his senior season.

In other words, Taylor is strongly leaning towards not declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft. Per Brugler, Taylor suffered a stress fracture in his back during fall camp. The injury went undetected until it was revealed in an MRI a few weeks ago. "That helps explain why he didn't look as explosive as his sophomore year film," Brugler wrote. "Big time talent when healthy." Brugler's colleague Bruce Feldman placed Taylor on his annual "freak list" over the summer. Taylor reportedly runs a 4.3 second 40-yard dash with a 40-inch vertical jump.
