Ohio State, Minnesota in a dog fight

Ohio State finds itself in a tight battle at home vs. Minnesota. The Gophers have a 14-10 lead and found a secret to moving the ball on the Buckeyes thanks to a healthy combination of power running plays and slants over the middle. The result? Two scoring drives of a combined 20 plays, 150 yards and 9:33 of game time. Ohio State has been able to move the ball as well, but defensive coordinator Greg Schiano needs to make some serious halftime adjustments to stop what Minnesota is doing.

Florida sluggish vs. Vandy

Apparently the Gators didn’t get the wake up call in Nashville, because they’ve been sleeping through the first half against the Commodores. Feleipe Franks was picked off at the 2-yard-line, and Vandy promptly went on a 98-yard drive to paydirt. The ensuing drive went for 16 plays, but Vandy held the Gators to a field goal. The ‘Dores answered right back, when Kyle Shurmur hit Ke’Shawn Vaughan for a 75-yard touchdown on a screen pass. The No. 14 Gators trail 21-3 with the highlight of the game being this weird fumble recovered by the ‘Dores. 

Boston College will be without star RB AJ Dillon

For the second week in a row, the 4-2 Eagles will be missing one of their top offensive weapons in sophomore running back AJ Dillon, whose ankle injury will keep him sidelined vs. Louisville, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Pete Thamel. A potential Heisman candidate entering the year, Dillon went off for 272 yard and four scores against the Cardinals a year ago, but he went down in late in Boston College’s Sept. 29 win over Temple and hasn’t returned since. Ben Glines is set to start in his place.

Pitt going retro for Notre Dame matchup

Pitt broke out the retro home uniforms last weekend for its win over Syracuse, and the Panthers are hoping the magic can strike again as they go on the road to South Bend to take on No. 5 Notre Dame. On Friday, Pitt revealed it will be wearing the retro away uniforms for its matchup with the Irish. Many are of the opinion that Pitt should go back to these uniforms on a full-time basis, and if an upset of the Irish should occur on Saturday, they might want to seriously consider that option.
