"I don't think there will need to be any kind of explanation". I know it's the type of surgery that guys that have had it recover 100 percent and never have an issue with that type of thing again. After an impressive opening run from junior running back Jacques Patrick, the 'Noles couldn't find a way to get past their opponents 40-yard line and were forced to punt.

"A buuuuunch", Richt said Saturday. "They made one more play".

With two young, unproven quarterbacks and shaky offensive line play against talented defenses, the game featured just six points in the first 37 minutes. Eddy Pineiro missed the first extra point of his career in the third quarter and never got a chance to atone for it.

"We are sad; we are disappointed", Fisher said. "Let's just leave it at that". The 'Canes have moved up to No. 11 in the nation in the latest polls following their 4-0 start to the 2017 campaign. With time left for one play before kicking a field goal for overtime, Rosier and Langham came up with the game-winning play that finally pushed the Canes back over the top, their first win in the rivalry since Jimbo Fisher became head coach at Florida State in 2010.

Ertz (12-of-18 for 224 yards) replaced Delton for Kansas State's final drive of regulation, but the Wildcats' push to win the game in regulation ended in a deep interception to Texas safety DeShon Elliott, his fifth pick in his last three games. Bryant sprained his left ankle Saturday and left the game.

Going against the No. 13 ranked Hurricanes was a big test for freshman quarterback James Blackman.

Texas put together yet another lengthy drive, killing half the available time, but Texas stalled in the red zone and Rowland's game-tying 27-yard chip shot sailed wide right.

Deon McIntosh added 124 yards rushing and two scores for the Fighting Irish (5-1). Starter Mark Walton managed just 25 yards on twelve carries, appearing still physically by an ankle injury sustained against Toledo.

His five touchdown catches are second in the ACC, and his per-catch average (15.67) is seventh.

That was the theme of this past weekend, when both football teams, playing some 80 miles apart in North Carolina, sat in postgame news conferences and circled the subject. He doesn't want to come off of them.

LOS ANGELES - Sam Darnold threw for 316 yards and 3 touchdowns, Ronald Jones II rushed for 1 touchdown and No. 14 Southern California (5-1, 3-1) defeated Oregon State (1-5, 0-3) on Saturday. Richt also said it was possible true freshman Deejay Dallas would also get some reps at running back.

"We'll consider [freshman receiver] DeeJay Dallas possibly taking some snaps at that position to help us out, " Richt added.

Yep, you saw that right. "They're better rivalries when there's some winning and losing on both sides, and that hasn't happened lately". Some wondered if Miami had better options at returner, though UM's coaches always said they were riding with him.

Following the victory, a handful of Hurricanes players went to midfield and begin pretending to dig up the field at the midfield logo.
