Colorado s tarting inside linebacker Kenneth Olugbode will miss four to six weeks after suffering a leg injury in last week’s loss to Oregon.
"He got hit in the leg, it started swelling up, (fluid) had nowhere to go," coach Mike MacIntyre said Tuesday. "They had to take him to the hospital, cut (open) his leg and drain it. He'll be out four to six weeks, and he's an excellent player for us."
Olugbode’s injury means the Buffaloes have lost both of their starting inside linebackers this season. Addison Gillam was injured during the second game of the season and there’s no timetable for his return.
Ryan Severson is the likely replacement for Olugbode. Severson leads Colorado with eight special teams tackles.

Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell assisted two Notre Dame fans who were stranded during a rainstorm early Sunday morning.
According to The Post and Courier, the two fans, brothers Larry and Tony Luppi, made the trip to Clemson for Saturday night’s primetime matchup between the Irish and Tigers. They planned to take a shuttle bus back to their hotel after the game (which Clemsonwon 24-22), but things went awry and the two decided to make the trek on foot.
From The Post and Courier:
After Clemson’s 24-22 win went final at 11:42 p.m., the Luppis’ plan was to ride a shuttle back to their hotel in Seneca and drive their rental car to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in time to catch a 7:30 a.m. Sunday flight.
They never saw the shuttle, and traffic was impossibly congested due to the exodus of fans trying to escape the weather. So the Luppis began hiking in the dark and the rain.

Former Michigan offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman has been charged with three felonies in an Ann Arbor district court.
According to Mlive.com, the charges stem from a "sexual encounter" with a woman on September 4. He's accuses of filming the act while she didn't know about it and then transferring it to a personal device.
Logan Tuley-Tillman was arraigned on two counts of capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person and one count of using a computer to commit a crime, according to court records.
All three are felonies. Capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person is punishable by up to two years in prison, a fine of no more than $2,000, or both. Using a computer to commit a crime, in this case, would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of no more than $5,000, or both.

Maryland reportedly has plans to fire head coach Randy Edsall.
According to a report from InsideMDSports.com, the school will “part ways with Edsall” after this weekend’s game at No. 1 Ohio State “barring an unexpected last-minute reversal.” The Terps have a bye week after the OSU game.
Yahoo Sports' Pat Forde also reported later on Thursday that Maryland intends to fire Edsall, but not necessarily after the Ohio State game.
Maryland is off to a rough start in Edsall’s fifth year at the helm. Heading into Columbus this weekend, the team is 2-3 and has lost its last two games to West Virginia and Michigan by a combined score of 73-6. The Terps also suffered an embarrassing 48-27 home loss to Bowling Green in Week 2.

Navy will likely be without one of its top defensive players for the rest of the season.
Midshipmen head coach Ken Niumatalolo confirmed to the Capital Gazette that safety Kwazel Bertrand broke his ankle against Air Force on Saturday and is going to be out for a lengthy period of time.
Niumatalolo said Bertrand, a senior, had surgery this week and could possibly return in time to play against Army or in a bowl game.
“I feel terrible for Kwazel. It’s really unfortunate any time a senior goes down with a season-ending injury,” Niumatalolo said. “Kwazel has been a really good player for us and we’re going to miss his presence out on the field.”
Bertrand has been a steady presence in the secondary for Navy during his career. Including this season, Bertrand has made 27 career starts for the Midshipmen and played in 35 games overall for the Midshipmen, totaling 154 tackles, five tackles for loss, one interception and one sack.

It looks like Wisconsin is leaving Adidas for Under Armour.
The school's board of regents is scheduled to vote Friday on an athletic apparel deal with Under Armour. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the deal will be approved "barring a surprise move."
UW will receive $3.3 million in product during the first year of the deal to account for the increased product needs associated with the change from adidas to Under Armour. UW will receive $2.45 million in product in the second year of the deal. That total will increase incrementally after that, to $3.05 million in the 10 th year.
Not only is the cash contribution much improved in UA's proposal, so is the amount of product. Adidas is currently giving the school approximately $1.4 million in goods.

Eastern Kentucky isn't playing at home on Thursday night.
The school has canceled classes for the rest of the week for a graffiti threat that was placed on campus. The game against Tennessee Tech was scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday.
So instead of canceling or postponing the game, it's been moved to Georgetown, Kentucky, and Georgetown College's stadium. Eastern Kentucky is located in Richmond.
The threat, discovered Monday, said "Kill all by 10-8-15 this is Bu Oop." It was written in a bathroom on campus. There's no public indication of who or what "Bu Oop" refers to.
EKU has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the responsible person or persons.
EKU's fall break had been scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, so classes will not resume until next Wednesday.
Christopher Payton, editor in chief of the student newspaper, Eastern Progress, said Wednesday morning that campus is largely deserted.
"There is no one here, practically," Payton said.

Miami and Florida could be playing each other in 2019.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the two teams are "close" to facing off in Orlando in the first week of the 2019 season. It'd be the first time in six years that the teams have met. They stopped playing after the 2013 season.
Both schools were non-committal.
“While we won’t comment on this report, we’re always exploring future scheduling options,” UF spokesperson Steve McClain told the Orlando Sentinel.
Miami athletics director Blake James told the Sun Sentinel there have been conversations with Florida and he’s always been open to the idea of playing the Gators again, but there is no contract yet.
