4 quarterbacks may play for Florida State, Clemson (Yahoo Sports)

Top-ranked Florida State will host No. 22 Clemson without Heisman-winning quarterback Jameis Winston for the first half after he was suspended Wednesday. That thrusts redshirt sophomore Sean Maguire into the first start of his career. Maguire was not a star recruit and has only thrown 21 passes in his career. Now he'll have to hold down the fort for the first 30 minutes of college football's marquee Saturday night game. (AP Photo/Phil Sears, File)

There will be a revolving door of quarterbacks on the field when Florida State and Clemson meet in the showcase matchup this weekend. Florida State redshirt sophomore Sean Maguire will make the first start of his career for the top-ranked Seminoles after Heisman winner Jameis Winston was suspended for the first half after making ''offensive and vulgar'' comments about female anatomy. ''You're not the second-team guy at Florida State if you're not a really good player,'' Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. ''Obviously, we don't have a ton of film on him, but he's a guy they recruited to be a great player.'' The No. 22 Tigers start a more traditional QB in senior Cole Stoudt.


Oregon faces pass-happy offense at Washington St (Yahoo Sports)
Oregon defensive back Ifo Ekpre-Olomu says playing against pass-happy Washington State is not a hardship but an opportunity. Actually, just 60 passes would be a relatively modest total for Washington State, which boasts the nation's top passing offense heading into Saturday's Pac-12 opener against the second-ranked Ducks in Pullman, Washington. Last year, Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday threw the ball an NCAA-record 89 times as Oregon beat the Cougars 62-38 in Eugene, Oregon. Oregon (3-0) has won seven straight games against Washington State (1-2), which opened the season with losses to Rutgers and Nevada, games the Cougars were expected to win.

Alabama coach Nick Saban won't be concerned with protege Will Muschamp's job security once the game against Florida kicks off. The friends will be all business Saturday when the Gators visit Alabama the Crimson Tide's SEC opener. His former defensive coordinator at LSU, Muschamp has the Gators (2-0, 1-0) hoping to stage a big turnaround from an injury-plagued 4-8 season that placed him on the hot seat.

For the Sooners it will be the first of three consecutive games outside the state of Oklahoma. This will be Oklahoma's second-ever trip to Morgantown.

Gus Malzahn squeezed into his postgame news conference, gripping both sides of the podium and exhaling deeply. Fifth-ranked Auburn had just eked out a 20-14 victory over No. 20 Kansas State, and Malzahn was asked whether it was the kind of nip-and-tuck nonconference game that he likes to play. ''After they're over and you win, yeah,'' the Tigers' coach said. ''You do.'' Auburn's vaunted ground game held in check all night, the Tigers finally pulled away when they went to the air.


Texas Tech defensive coach Wallerstedt resigns (Yahoo Sports)
Texas Tech defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt has resigned for unspecified personal reasons. Wallerstedt said in a statement issued by the university Thursday that he was stepping side ''because I want the best for the Red Raider program, and this will allow them to go in a different direction on defense.'' Mike Smith, who shared the coordinator title with Wallerstedt, will be in charge of the defense for the rest of the season. The 48-year-old Wallerstedt joined the staff when former Texas Tech quarterback Kliff Kingsbury was hired as coach last year.
No. 2 Oregon looks to eclectic receiver corps (Yahoo Sports)
From hybrid running back Byron Marshall, to track champion Devon Allen and former point guard Johnathan Loyd, Oregon's got a varied cast of targets for the quarterback. Marcus Mariota has thrown for 806 yards and eight touchdowns so far this season for the No. 2 Ducks. The early Heisman front-runner has spread his attention around, hitting 13 different teammates with passes, including six different Ducks for touchdowns. Normally known for a dynamic ground game, Oregon is ranked 18th among FBS programs with an average of 330.3 yards passing per game.

Two former Syracuse University ball boys urged the state's highest court Tuesday to reinstate their slander lawsuit against basketball head coach Jim Boeheim. Bobby Davis and Mike Lang claim Boeheim slandered them in 2011 by calling them liars out for money when they accused his longtime assistant coach Bernie Fine of molesting them as children. A judge dismissed the suit last year, ruling Boeheim's comments were not assertions of fact but opinions protected from defamation lawsuits. On Tuesday, the men's attorney Mariann Meier Wang argued before the Court of Appeals that Boeheim accused her clients of extortion.

Her Taney Dragons team reached the Little League semifinals.
