Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury spat perhaps the hottest fire of this young college football season when he went in on Arkansas coach Bret Bielema.

R.I.P. Riley LaRue

The next 35 years of college football, predicted

College football thrives on disorder — far more so than its professional counterpart. This is a sport that, for decades, could not find a way to have the teams ranked first and second play each other at the end of each season. Once its overseers solved that uncrackable puzzle with the Bowl Championship Series, the sport's best minds faced the quandary of what to do with more than two undefeated teams. (The Verge)

Northwestern reveals Duke's flaws

High-scoring, imaginative offense and strong quarterback play have been the linchpins of Duke's program during Cutcliffe's remarkable revival of the former Atlantic Coast Conference doormat. But none of those elements were apparent against Northwestern. The playcalling was elementary, the execution was sporadic, and it seemed like first-year quarterback starter Thomas Sirk was either uncomfortable or unwilling to throw the football down the field.

LSU’s Leonard Fournette just punished Auburn

Fournette had such a monstrous outing, it took two WaPo bloggers to chronicle it.
