Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott spoke before Colorado’s meeting with California on Saturday, noting that the chance of the Buffaloes moving to his west coast conference were “worse than 50-50.”

Iowa State mustered just an additional four points this year against Iowa in a 35-7 loss.

Kansas State’s Daniel Thomas is third in the nation in rushing yards behind only—wow—Michigan’s Denard Robinson and Oklahoma State’s Kendall Hunter.

After being suspended indefinitely, Missouri running back Derrick Washington has been arrested again for suspicion of third-degree domestic assault.

Taylor Martinez may be just a redshirt freshman, but Nebraska loves his winning ways. SI’s Stewart Mandel calls him one of the top three new game-breaking quarterbacks in college football.

Oklahoma running back Brennan Clay was released from a Norman hospital yesterday. He suffered a massive hit on a 6-yard reception against Florida State in the Sooners’ 47-17 victory.

Oklahoma State might have found their own Wes Welker in receiver/punt returner Josh Cooper.

One of Texas’ two-deep offensive lineman suffered a torn ACL against Wyoming on Saturday; the injury will require surgery and Luke Poehlmann will miss the remainder of the year.

Despite over 1,000 total offensive yards through Texas A&M’s first two games, head coach Mike Sherman had this to say: “I like our offense, but it is a work in progress.”

Texas Tech blocked two punts against New Mexico and returned a kickoff for a score in a 52-17 win over the Lobos.
