Ball State senior RB James Gilbert rushed for 45 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries in Tuesday's 42-41 overtime win over Western Michigan.

Gilbert (5'9/198) did not do much on the yardage front, but augmented his statistical output with touchdown runs in the second and third quarters. For the campaign, now, the senior back has rushed for 631 yards and seven touchdowns in 10 games. He will look to finish the season strong against NIU next Tuesday.

Ball State redshirt sophomore QB Drew Plitt completed 21-of-26 passes for 258 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Tuesday's 42-41 overtime win over Western Michigan.

Plitt was far from perfect in this one, but overcame his mistakes to help lead Ball State to the upset victory. The redshirt sophomore hit on touchdown passes in each of the first two quarters before later wrapping up in overtime with a little jump-pass touchdown toss to Kyle Schrank. That gave Ball State a 42-35 edge, and while WMU would score a touchdown on their subsequent first possession of the overtime period as well, the Broncos elected to go for the win on a two-point conversion try, a two-point conversion try which failed. Plitt has been starting in place of Riley Neal (knee) and may well do so once more for the final game of the season versus Miami (OH), though that has not yet been officially determined.

Western Michigan redshirt junior RB LeVante Bellamy rushed for 213 yards and a touchdown on 35 carries in Tuesday's 42-41 overtime loss to Ball State.

In a fun, high-scoring bout of Tuesday MACtion, Bellamy turned in a career-best performance in which he averaged 6.1 YPC with a long run of 17 yards. Alas for the WMU faithful, his final touch of the game came when he was stuffed on a two-point conversion attempt in overtime. The Broncos could have kicked the extra point, there, to tie up the game and send it onwards to a second overtime period, but HC Tim Lester opted to go for the win instead. No such luck. Setting aside the sour end result, Bellamy has now rushed for 1,120 yards and six touchdowns across 11 games played. Western Michigan will finish up its regular-season campaign against NIU next Tuesday.

Texas senior DE Charles Omenihu accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Omenihu (6'6/254) is in the midst of a career-best campaign, having recorded 34 tackles (12.0 for loss), 7.5 sacks and a forced fumble across 10 games played. He's a lengthy, flexible prospect who also offers a plus strength element. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote at the beginning of November that the Longhorns standout has risen in the estimation of the scouting community over the first two months of the season. He opened the year as a likely Day 3 selection, but Day 2 may well be in range before all is said and done. The Senior Bowl will serve as his springboard into the predraft evaluation process.

The Detroit News' Angelique Chengelis hears that Kansas is considering former UCLA OC Jedd Fisch as an option to fill its vacant head-coaching position.

Fisch was hired by UCLA to serve as offensive coordinator in the winter of 2017 after spending the previous two years as Michigan's passing-game coordinator. He bounced to the NFL following the 2017 campaign and is currently an offensive analyst with the Los Angeles Rams. His lone experience working as a head coach in any capacity came late last fall, after Jim Mora was canned. He served as interim head honcho for two games in that spot. The vast majority of Fisch's experience has come at the NFL level. Les Miles remains the name most heavily bandied about for KU's open job, but another one to keep an eye on, here.

Penn State HC James Franklin indicated that he has been impressed by the developmental progress of freshman LB Micah Parsons.

"[Parsons is] now using the techniques and fundamentals and keys and things like that that are allowing him really to take his game to the next level, and also build that trust that his role continues to grow," Franklin said. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound five-star freshman has been as-advertised out of the box. Even without starting a game to date, Parsons currently leads Penn State in tackles with 58 stops. While Franklin has yet to commit to a start for the talented linebacker, the Nittany Lions finish out the regular season with games against Rutgers and Maryland and we would not be surprised to see him crack the starting lineup for one of those contests. Star in the making right here.

Former Kansas HC David Beaty said that he "can't see [himself] just sitting around."

Beaty is not 100-percent committed to coaching next season -- he said that it has to be the right situation and that he has to be wanted (the latter part might be tricky) -- but made it pretty clear that he does not plan on sitting out for too long if there are opportunities available to him. Kansas fired Beaty on Nov. 4. He finished his tenure with the program having picked up six wins against 40 losses over the course of four seasons in Lawrence.

In the latest release of the College Football Playoff rankings, Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Michigan slotted in at Nos. 1-4.

Those same four teams in that order paced the Playoff rankings in last week's incarnation. In fact, the rankings were without any movement at all in the top 10. Following up the above quartet (in order) are Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Washington State, West Virginia and Ohio State. We might not see much movement in next week's rankings, either, at least barring a Syracuse upset of Notre Dame, but after Thanksgiving, things will be different -- among the games scheduled for the final weekend of the regular season, Alabama-Auburn, Michigan-Ohio State, Washington State-Washington and Oklahoma-West Virginia.
