Deshaun Watson shows nation he's 'still here' while out-dueling Lamar Jackson, Louisville

Deshaun Watson could have easily kept silent Saturday after seeing what Louisville had wrought on his team in Death Valley. The fifth-ranked Tigers, up 28-10 at halftime against No. 3 Louisville, could only watch in despair as the visiting Cardinals scored 26 unanswered points to take a 36-28 lead with little less than eight minutes remaining in the game.

Toledo-BYU lasts so long TV analyst Mack Brown walks out

BYU and Toledo played one of the most thrilling college football games of the season Friday night. It was so long that TV analyst Mack Brown walked out before the game was over. Seriously.

SportsPickle: LSU not sure who to hire after discovering Coach Eric Taylor is not a real person

LSU is reportedly scrambling to identify a long-term replacement for Les Miles after finding out that the program’s ?1 choice, Eric Taylor, is a fictional person from a television show.

No. 5 Clemson vs. No. 3 Louisville packed with star power

Receiver Ray-Ray McCloud can't wait to see how teammate Deshaun Watson responds when No. 3 Louisville plays at Clemson on Saturday.

What Separates Champions From ‘Almost Champions’?

It’s the perennial million-dollar question of nature versus nurture, sure. But the difference between the greats and the almost-greats (which, by the way, applies well beyond sports) also appears to be at least partially driven by one specific thing — how each group responds to adversity. The greats rise to the challenge and put in persistent effort; the almost-greats lose steam and regress. (NYMag.com)

Wake Forest savors spot – for now – as Atlantic co-leader

There's a surprising three-way tie atop the ACC's Atlantic Division with No. 3 Louisville, No. 5 Clemson and Wake Forest — yes, the Demon Deacons. It's still early in the season, of course, but the unranked and undefeated Demon Deacons (4-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are off to their best start in a decade. Picked last in the league's preseason poll, they're savoring their status as a division co-leader while also keeping it in perspective. (Associated Press)

NC State waiting on NCAA answer on Yurtseven’s eligibility

For now, all NC State freshman Omer Yurtseven can do is work on his game and be patient. With all the attention on possible one-and-done freshman Dennis Smith Jr., the Turkish 7-footer gives the Wolfpack a second five-star prospect on an overhauled roster. But he's still waiting for the NCAA to clear him as eligible to play as an amateur. Practice starts Friday and the opener is six weeks away. (Associated Press)

Paul Johnson takes more hands-on role with Georgia Tech's offense

Upset by what he saw on the field last week, Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson is taking a more active role with the offense ahead of his team's game against No. 14 Miami. The Yellow Jackets were held to only 124 yards in a 24-7 loss to No. 5 Clemson, a low during Johnson's nine years at the helm of the program, and he is trying to make sure his usually productive spread-option attack returns to form against Miami.

N.C. State chancellor denounces students' racist comments

NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson was unequivocal in his denunciation of a string of racist messages posted online by a handful of students, but some are wondering if he went far enough. Students told ABC11 the messages were written in an "underground," racist chat room and came under fire when the comments were posted on other social media sites, such as Twitter. (ABC 11)

Indiana senior forward Collin Hartman out indefinitely following knee surgery

Indiana had a significant player suffer a non-contact knee injury last week.

The school didn't say. We also don't know the true nature of the injury. Non-contact knee injuries vary in terms of severity. (CBS Sports)

2016-17 College Basketball Preview: Programs on the Rise, Decline

Virginia Tech on the Rise: It looks as though the Hokies are ready to take the next step forward.

They also picked off a pair of top ten teams during the year in Miami and North Carolina. (NBC Sports)
