Max Duggan gets a lot of the love — and rightfully so — but Kendre Miller has been invaluable to TCU’s offensive success this year. Might be one of the more underrated RBs in the country.
Miller’s 51-yard TD run gives TCU its first lead today over West Virginia, 21-14 in the 2nd

Miami and Virginia reminding us of NC State-Virginia Tech on Thursday. Little offense. Lots of punting. At least it was that way for the first half.

Ohio State star receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba will not play against Penn State, the school announced Saturday morning.

Smith-Njigba has been dealing with an undisclosed injury since the season-opener against Notre Dame. After missing three straight games, he returned to the field last week against Iowa and played 22 snaps in the first half. He left the game in the second quarter limping, but coach Ryan Day said Smith-Njigba's removal was not due to injury — the plan was to play him around 20 snaps.

There were legends who held themselves apart from everyone else, who kept their distance from the public, who every moment walked with an aura that said they were different than the rest of us.

And then there was Vince Dooley.

He spent half his life burnishing his legend, then the other half acting like he wasn’t one. If you lived in Athens, you were likely to run into him at a nursery, buying supplies for his beloved garden. If you spent any time at the Georgia football building, you were likely to run into him at some point as he came by to pick up an old game program. You might have run into him at Georgia’s library if he was doing research for a book. If you were a reporter needing a quote, you just needed to call him.

Temple head coach Stan Drayton will not coach Saturday’s game at Navy, as he’s been suffering from a viral infection and hasn’t been at practice all week. Chief of staff Everett Withers will take over game day responsibilities.

Liberty football coach Hugh Freeze has agreed to a new contract with the school that runs through the 2030 season, the school announced Friday. The eight-year contract is fully guaranteed and averages just under $5 million per year over the course of the deal, a school source confirmed to The Athletic. ESPN first reported news of the contract.

Freeze, 53, joined the Flames in December 2018. The program went 7-5 in his first season at the helm and qualified for bowl games for the first time in school history. Last November, Freeze agreed to an extension with Liberty through 2028.

The latest contract figure will be by far the largest contract among future Group of 5 schools, as Liberty joins Conference USA next year.

As the Washington Huskies enjoy their idle week — they’re back in action next Friday against Oregon State — I debate with myself the good and bad of their season so far.

The game of the week in the Big 10 takes place in State College where the Penn State Nittany Lions play host to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Despite playing on the road, the Buckeyes are rolling into Happy Valley favored by more than two touchdowns.

Seeing a top-15 team being a two-touchdown underdog at home is shocking, but it also speaks to the lack of confidence there is in James Franklin’s ability to win these big games. Franklin and Penn State have fared terribly against top-ranked teams during his tenure. In their only meeting with a ranked opponent this season, the Nittany Lions laid a 41-17 egg at Michigan.
