Northwestern junior WR Flynn Nagel had the most yards (220) from the slot among FBS receivers in Week 7.

Nagel (5'11/181) had 53 more yards from the slot than K.J. Hill, who was second on the week. The junior receiver has back-to-back weeks with at least 10 receptions and 110 yards, and he is now up to 48-622-2 on the season. Nagel will look to extend his streak against a struggling Rutgers team next week.

Sam Houston State senior WR Davion Davis caught six passes for 68 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 42-28 win over Northwestern State.

Davis (6'0/185) caught four touchdown passes from within 21-yards despite being a smaller receiver. He was made to score touchdowns for the Bearkats. Davis now has eight touchdowns this year after scoring 10 and 17 touchdowns the last two seasons. With yesterday's game, Davis now has over 3,000 career receiving yards.

According to Bruce Feldman, Texas is optimistic sophomore QB Sam Ehlinger (shoulder sprain) will play against Oklahoma State on October 27th.

The sophomore quarterback suffered a Grade 1 AC shoulder sprain to his right arm against Baylor on Saturday, but Texas has their bye week right now, which is giving Ehlinger enough time to heal up ahead of their next game. If Ehlinger suffers a setback, then Shane Buechele will draw the start. Texas is now all the way up to No. 7 in the country.

Arizona State senior QB Manny Wilkins (leg) practiced on Sunday and will be fine for next Thursday's game against Stanford.

Wilkins didn't practice last Wednesday during their bye week after injuring his leg in the fourth quarter of October 6th's game against Colorado. The senior quarterback will bring an 11/1 TD/INT ratio into the PAC-12 battle. Stanford's defense has only allowed 1.2 passing touchdowns per game this season.

Idaho State redshirt senior RB James Madison has 650 yards and 10 touchdowns through six games.

Madison (5'11/227) has already doubled his 2017 touchdown output and is on pace to crush last year's 933 rushing yards. The redshirt senior looks comfortable as a ball catcher despite his bigger frame. Madison has caught 30 passes for 274 receiving yards over his last 16 games. Against Cal earlier this season, Madison ran for 63 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for eight yards. You can watch his 2017 highlights in the link below.

Bowling Green has fired Mike Jinks and promoted DC Carl Pelini to interim head coach.

Jinks was fired after leading the Falcons to a 2-10 season last year and starting this season 1-6. Pelini joined the Bowling Green coaching staff as defensive coordinator in December 2017, and it's been a terrible season for him. The Falcons are 129th out of 130 teams in points allowed. The university has already began looking for the long-term answer at head coach, but Pelini is likely the head coach for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Bowling Green has fired head coach Mike Jinks.

The Falcons moved to 1-6 after losing 42-35 to Western Michigan on Saturday. Finks has served as the head coach since being promoted from running backs coach in late 2015. Before being named head coach, Jinks had only three years of college experience with most of his coaching coming within Texas high school football. Finks finished with seasonal records of 4-8, 2-10, and 1-6. Defensive coordinator Carl Pelini will serve as the interim head coach.

UNLV senior RB Lexington Thomas exited Saturday's game against Utah State with a head injury.

Thomas (5'9/170) is likely in the concussion protocol but that's unofficial at the moment without confirmation from the team. The Rebels have a short week with a Friday night game, so Thomas should be considered questionable, especially if he did suffer a concussion. If he's unable to suit up, UNLV will lean on Charles Williams (11 carries yesterday), Evan Owens (6), and Xzaviar Campbell (6).
