Washington offensive coordinator Bush Hamdan expects senior RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) to play on Saturday against Colorado.

Gaskin and backup RB Salvon Ahmed were considered "week-to-week" on Monday, but it sounds like the Huskies will have both available against the Buffaloes. Gaskin injured his shoulder against UCLA, and was in-and-out of the overtime loss to Oregon last week. Even with the depth the Huskies have at tailback, his return obviously would be big; especially if he can pair with Ahmed.

Miami coach Mark Richt said freshman TE Brevin Jordan (ankle) will not be available for next week's game against Pittsburgh.

Neither will TE Will Mallory (knee), but Richt is optimistic that both will be ready for a bowl game. Jordan's absence is significant, as he is currently second on the team in receptions (30) and receiving touchdowns (4). Losing both Jordan and Mallory will really test Miami's tight end depth, but the team may put more onto the receivers' plates instead.

Charlotte has fired HC Brad Lambert.

Lambert will stick around for the season finale against Florida Atlantic, but Charlotte will begin their head coaching search immediately. Under Lambert's leadership, the 49ers have had losing seasons in 6-of-6 years, including this year's 4-7 record. Many analysts were surprised Lambert survived this past offseason after going 1-11 in 2017, but the university will finally move on at the season's end. Lambert is 21-48 overall.

Texas State has named defensive coordinator Chris Woods as the interim head coach.

The Bobcats have moved on from head coach Everett Withers, so Woods will serve as the team leader for the season finale against Arkansas State. Texas State hired Woods as the defensive coordinator last February after serving as a defensive specialist at Oklahoma. The Bobcats' defense has improved from last season under Woods' leadership. Last year, the defense allowed 33.6 points per game, but that number is down to 27.2 points in 2018. The search for the long-term head coach has begun.

UC Davis senior WR Keelan Doss caught 16 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 56-13 win over Sacramento State.

Doss (6'3/206) is arguably the top NFL receiving prospect in the FCS, and his stats certainly back it up. Yesterday's receiving line was obviously monstrous, but that's basically just another day at the office for Doss. On the season, Doss has a 100-1,065-9 receiving line, which is actually worse than his junior campaign when he posted 115-1,499-7. It's been an amazing collegiate career for Doss, and he could easily be a Day 3 pick if he can test well after the season. Doss has the size to make it.

Oklahoma State redshirt senior QB Taylor Cornelius was named the Walter Camp Player of the Week.

Cornelius entered the fourth quarter with three touchdowns, and he added three more in the final 15 minutes to lead the Cowboys to a comeback 45-41 win over West Virginia. The redshirt senior completed 30-of-46 passes for 338 yards when the dust settled, and he gets one more chance to make magic happen (vs. TCU) before Oklahoma State heads to a bowl game. Cornelius has 36 total touchdowns to just 10 interceptions this season.

Latest AP Rankings: 1) Alabama, 2) Clemson, 3) Notre Dame, 4) Michigan, 5) Georgia, 6) Oklahoma, 7) Washington State, 8) UCF, 8) LSU, and 10) Ohio State.

The six seven teams are unchanged, but Washington State climbed a spot after putting up 55 points in the first half against Arizona last night. Washington State would be undefeated right now if not for a silly loss to USC earlier in the year. The biggest news is UCF and LSU tying for the No. 8 spot, which means UCF climbed over Ohio State, who narrowly beat Maryland on Saturday. The biggest risers are Kentucky (No. 17), Utah (No. 18), Northwestern (No. 20), and Mississippi State (No. 22), while the biggest fallers are West Virginia (No. 12), Syracuse (No. 19), and Iowa State (No. 25). Fresno State just missed out on cracking the Top 25, but Army (No. 23) is in for the first time since 1996.

According to Football Scoop, Texas State has fired HC Everett Withers.

Withers lasted just three seasons as the Bobcats' head coach, and he will finish with a 7-28 overall record since he will not coach the season finale against Arkansas State. The news comes just one day after his offense threw five interceptions and only scored one touchdown, which sent the team to 3-8 on the season. The former Urban Meyer assistant head coach will likely re-surface as he only is 55-years old, but there is a chance that his next position will be as a coordinator.

Kansas has hired Les Miles as head coach.

Kansas University athletic director Jeff Long took to Twitter to make the announcement, listing Miles' experience as a head coach and strong recruiting reputation as reasons why the Jayhawks went in his direction. While Les Miles does bring a big name to the Kansas football program, there are concerns about his ability to adjust to the Big 12, especially with much weaker recruits than he was used to at LSU. Miles has reportedly agreed to a five-year contract worth $2,275,000 annually, with additional retention bonuses due in 2020 and 2022. Miles said, "We will bring Jayhawk football back." Let's see who he can bring on to his coaching staff.

Colorado has fired head coach Mike MacIntyre.

The decision is effective immediately, so he will not be around for the season finale against Cal. MacIntyre was about to finish his sixth season, but his team has regressed since they went the 2016 Pac-12 Championship Game. The final straw came on Saturday at home when Colorado lost to Utah, 30-7, which sent MacIntyre to 30-44 overall (.405 winning percentage). Since he has three years remaining on his contract, the university will owe MacIntyre $10.3 million if he is fired without cause. Colorado athletic director Rick George has expressed interest in a candidate with a "recognizable name with previous head-coaching experience" but the university has yet to name an interim head coach.

Washington State senior QB Gardner Minshew completed 43-of-55 passes for 473 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 69-28 win against Arizona.

The mustachioed graduate transfer was on his way to special things early on. He and the Cougars held a 55-14 lead at halftime, with Minshew piling up 311 yards and five touchdowns by the break. The Wazzu QB has been ridiculous, throwing for 319 or more yards in all 11 of his outings while tossing two or more touchdowns in 10 of his starts. He'll look to keep it rolling next weekend in the Apple Cup against rival Washington.
Nov 18 - 3:11 AM

North Carolina freshman RB Javonte Williams rushed for 93 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries in Saturday's 49-26 win over Western Carolina.

Williams (5'11/205) entered the game with a whole 48 rushing yards, so calling Saturday's performance a breakout game would be under selling it. The freshman back cleaned up near the goal line, as he converted three attempts for touchdowns. When he wasn't scoring short yardage touchdowns, Williams was picking up yards (5.5 YPC). With the season essentially over, the Tar Heels could continue to give their freshman some reps against North Carolina State next week.
