Texas A&M might have a new starting quarterback when the Aggies host Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. ”They’ve both gotten reps over the last week and will both continue to get reps,” coach Kevin Sumlin said. The Aggies need a win on Saturday to avoid losing four games in a row for the first time since 2005. Hill beat out Allen in fall camp and got off to a great start, throwing for a school-record 511 yards in the season opener and helping the Aggies to their perfect start.

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon resigned Friday, setting the stage for new leadership at the top of one of the nation’s most prominent athletic departments. Football coach Brady Hoke’s future has been in doubt for a while thanks to his team’s lack of progress, but Brandon also became a target of disgruntled fans and students. ”This morning I accepted the resignation of athletic director David Brandon,” school President Mark Schlissel said at a news conference. ”Dave feels that it would be in the best interest of our student-athletes, the athletic department and the university community if he moved on to other challenges and allowed the important work of the department and the university to continue without daily distractions.

Quarterbacks in the spotlight for TCU, WVU matchup (Yahoo Sports)

Most improved is a label that certainly fit quarterbacks Clint Trickett of West Virginia and Trevone Boykin of TCU. A year ago, Trickett looked lost at times trying to run the Mountaineers’ offense after transferring from Florida State. Boykin was relegated to wide receiver until relieving injured quarterback Casey Pachall. Both Trickett and Boykin ended up throwing seven touchdowns and seven interceptions as their teams finished 4-8.

Auburn and Mississippi spent the week dismissing their standing in the first College Football Playoff rankings as mostly irrelevant. The fourth-ranked Tigers and seventh-ranked Rebels, both among the initial top four teams, meet Saturday night in what could amount to the first elimination round of the playoffs. ”We’re focused solely really on one ranking and that would be on Dec. 7,” said Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze, referring to the final rankings that set up the four-team field. Auburn (6-1, 3-1) is third in the CFP rankings, one spot ahead of the Rebels (7-1, 4-1).
