Boise State beat reporter Tom Scott report that "no news is not necessarily good news" on junior WR John Hightower (ankle).

Hightower missed the Fresno State game last Friday with a high-ankle sprain he apparently suffered the previous week against BYU. At this time, Hightower's status for New Mexico this weekend is unknown.

Arkansas HC Chad Morris expects junior RB Devwah Whaley (ankle) to return Saturday against Mississippi State.

Whaley was the team’s starting running back until suffering an ankle injury in the Ole Miss game in mid-October. Whaley had 298 yards and two touchdowns rushing at the time. He will likely form a committee with Rakeem Boyd going forward.

Arkansas HC Chad Morris indicated that redshirt sophomore RB Rakeem Boyd (ankle) will play Saturday against Mississippi State.

Boyd hurt his ankle last weekend against LSU but appears to be good to go for the Bulldogs. The Hogs' backfield will finally be back to full strength with Devwah Whaley (ankle) expected back.

Ole Miss sophomore WR Braylon Sanders (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He's a game-time decision for Vanderbilt. Sanders' status appeared to be more optimistic earlier this week than it does now, a downward trend that may be ominous for his chances of playing on Saturday.
Nov 15 - 12:26 PM

USC redshirt freshman QB Matt Fink (ribs) has returned to practice.

On Wednesday, he shared second-team reps with Jack Sears. Fink suffered three broken ribs in relief of injured starter JT Daniels (concussion) on Oct. 20 against Utah. He was given a 3-4 week recovery timeline and appears to be mended. HC Clay Helton mentioned that he'll name Daniels' backup for the UCLA game later this week.

Wisconsin junior T David Edwards (left arm) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Purdue.

Wisconsin still lists Edwards as the starting right tackle on its updated depth chart. Redshirt freshman Logan Bruss will draw the start if he can't go.
Nov 15 - 12:01 PM

Wisconsin junior QB Alex Hornibrook (head) remains listed as questionable in advance of Saturday's game against Purdue.

Thursday's updated depth chart brought more of the same with regard to Hornibrook's status. Hornibrook has sat out two of the last three games -- including Saturday's loss to Penn State -- with lingering concussion symptoms. He'll be a game-time decision for the Boilermakers.

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore WR Jack Sorenson caught seven passes for 77 yards in Wednesday's 13-7 win over NIU.

While the Redhawks came out with the win, here, it was not on the strength of their offense. Gus Ragland was held to just 107 yards passing while Alonzo Smith "led the way" on the ground with 40 yards rushing. That Ragland passed for so few yards and Sorenson still managed respectable totals is impressive in its own weird way. Ball State shows next on the schedule for Miami.
Nov 14 - 11:29 PM

Northern Illinois sophomore RB Tre Harbison rushed for 103 yards on 16 carries in Wednesday's 13-7 loss to Miami (OH).

Harbison (5'11/227) was an offensive bright spot in a game sorely lacking for fireworks, averaging 6.4 YPC while ripping off a long run of 32 yards. This was the sophomore's third consecutive game over 100 yards rushing and his fifth such performance of the campaign. All told, Harbison has now rushed for 907 yards and four touchdowns across 11 games played. He can bump over 1,000 with a strong effort versus WMU next Friday.
Nov 14 - 11:25 PM

Northern Illinois redshirt sophomore QB Marcus Childers completed 15-of-32 passes for 157 yards and an interception in Wednesday's 13-7 loss to Miami (OH).

Yech. Childers and the NIU offense managed just 212 yards of total offense in the watching-paint-dry loss. The Huskies were 2-of-14 on third-down conversions on the evening. Oh, and the pick? That was returned for a touchdown in the third quarter and gave Miami a lead they would not relinquish. A lackluster showing, indeed, though by this point, we are used to seeing Northern Illinois' redshirt sophomore triggerman post depressing stats. This was his fourth game of the year in which he has not thrown for a touchdown pass. To add context around that, Childers has just two multi-touchdown performances all season and has registered one (1) game of more than 200 yards passing. Like we said, yech. NIU will close out the regular season against Western Michigan in Week 13.
Nov 14 - 11:18 PM

Ohio redshirt senior RB A.J. Ouellette rushed for 196 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries in Wednesday's 52-17 win over Buffalo.

Not only did the 5-foot-10, 209-pound Ouellette absolutely dominate this game on the ground, he chipped in with an eight-yard touchdown grab in the third quarter just for good measure. The redshirt senior has been outstanding of late, with Wednesday's immaculate performance his third game of at least 135 yards rushing in his last four contests. Ouellette will now need just 27 yards rushing against Akron in the regular-season finale to hit 1,000 yards for the campaign.
Nov 14 - 10:43 PM

Ohio junior QB Nathan Rourke completed 17-of-26 passes for 209 yards, three touchdowns and an interception while rushing for 77 yards and an additional score in Wednesday's 52-17 win over Buffalo.

Rourke ran for a two-yard touchdown near the end of the first quarter, threw for a 60-yard score to open the second quarter and wrapped up with two more touchdown passes in the third quarter. By the start of the fourth quarter, the Bobcats more than had this one in hand leading 45-10. For the campaign, now, Rourke has accounted for a respectable 31 touchdowns. He will look to finish strong against Akron a week from Friday.
Nov 14 - 10:37 PM

Buffalo redshirt junior QB Tyree Jackson completed 9-of-21 passes for 116 yards and two interceptions while rushing for 70 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 52-17 loss to Ohio.

Jackson (6'7/245) did have a nice evening as a runner -- his 70 yards rushing came on just three attempts, with a long run of 55 yards -- but otherwise this was one of his more lackluster performances of the campaign. This was just his third game all season in which he has thrown multiple interceptions and his first with zero touchdown passes. Jackson and company will look to rebound from this uninspiring showing in their regular-season finale against Bowling Green a week from Friday.
Nov 14 - 10:30 PM

Ole Miss junior RB Scottie Phillips (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Vanderbilt.

Phillips was forced out with an ankle sprain during this past weekend's loss to Texas A&M. The junior back did not take part in practice on Wednesday. Should he be forced to sit out against Vandy, it would be a critical loss for the Rebs. Isaiah Woullard would see an expanded workload if Phillips is unable to give it a go on Saturday. We'll check back in with this situation in the coming days.
Nov 14 - 9:04 PM

Notre Dame received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 LB/DB Marist Liufau.

Liufau was down to four: USC, Notre Dame, Boise State and Utah. It's the Fighting Irish that get the commitment after he took a visit to South Bend last weekend. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound defender has played all over the field, but most project him as an outside linebacker who has the cover skills to play safety -- maybe even corner. It's the 19th commitment of the year for Notre Dame, and their class improves to 13th in the 247 Sports composite rankings.
