Georgia running back Nick Chubb suffered what appeared to be a serious injury to his left leg on the first play from scrimmage Saturday against Tennessee.
Chubb first landed awkwardly on his left leg. Then he landed really awkwardly as he was spun around while tumbling toward the sidelines. Here's the video. Just a warning, it may make you squeamish.

He was looked at by Georgia's medical staff on the sidelines and helped off the field to a training table on the Georgia sideline. He was then taken to the locker room on a cart with an ice bag wrapped around his left knee. According to CBS sideline reporter Allie LaForce, Chubb collapsed on his way to the cart.
Chubb collapsed after leaving training table on way to cart and regained consciousness once on cart. Was taken to locker room.
The sophomore running back entered the Tennessee game looking for his 14th-straight 100-yard rushing game. His 13th-straight game, a Georgia record, came in the Bulldogs' Week 5 loss to Alabama.

If there was any doubt whether Texas had the ability to rally around its embattled coach, Charlie Strong, those doubts were assuaged Saturday with the Longhorns’ performance against rival Oklahoma.
Texas defeated the Sooners 24-17 to claim their second win of the season and likely quiet the calls for Strong’s job for the next week and perhaps the rest of the year.
Following the final whistle, players hoisted Strong in the air as he crowd surfed to the cheers of the Longhorn faithful that still believed in the coach and the team even through a season a adversity.

The win was the biggest in coach Charlie Strong’s Texas tenure and a long time coming. The Longhorns had closes losses against Cal and Oklahoma State that were products of late-game special teams gaffes. But this game, a week after being blown out by TCU, finally showcased the talented team Strong had boasted about since the preseason.

Yeah, Laquon Treadwell was wide open, but there's not much you can do to stop a catch like the one he made in the third quarter against New Mexico State on Saturday.
The Rebels were leading 38-3 when Treadwelll made this incredible one-handed catch. And not only did he make it look routine (and stayed inbounds), he scored his second touchdown of the day on it.
We're comfortable saying it is one of the best catches of the season. Here's another angle.
Treadwell, who came back in 2015 after suffering a gruesome season-ending leg injury against Auburn in 2014, has eight catches for 136 yards against the Aggies. The blowout is a nice bounceback game for Ole Miss, who suffered its first loss of 2015 against Florida in Week 5.

Western Kentucky’s attempted squib kick had unexpected results.
Already up 49-14 over Middle Tennessee State late in the first half, the Hilltoppers hoped to avoid a long return by squibbing it to an upback. Instead, WKU’s Ryan Nuss kicked the ball directly off MTSU’s Derek Barnes and the Hilltoppers pounced on the live ball.

The fumble recovery allowed the Hilltoppers to add on to their lead via a Garrett Schwettman 31-yard field goal. The field goal gave WKU a commanding 52-14 lead at halftime.
The Hilltoppers look like a lock to improve to 5-1 on the season and 3-0 in Conference USA play.

Baylor's Laquan McGowan has his first touchdown of 2015. And it's as beautiful as we hoped.
The 410-pound tight end slipped out of the backfield unnoticed (how?) and put Baylor up 38-7 on Kansas in the second quarter.

Don't you feel sorry for the Kansas player that tried to tackle him as he rumbled into the end zone?
McGowan, who is also 6-7, had the first catch of his career against Michigan State in the 2015 Cotton Bowl. It was an 18-yard touchdown. His catch against Kansas was the second catch of his career. That's pretty good efficiency.
Baylor is absolutely toying with the Jayhawks so far. The Bears entered the game as a 45-point favorite. Maybe McGowan can get his second touchodwn of the game. At this point, it's really the only reason to watch the game any longer.

Scoring a touchdown is any lineman’s dream, so Marshall’s Jarquez Samuel made sure he got his money’s worth against Southern Mississippi on Friday night.
When Marshall's Gary Thompson came off the edge to sack Southern Miss quarterback Nick Mullens near the goal line, the ball popped into the air and right into the arms of Samuel. The 6-foot-4, 287-pound Samuel didn’t have far to go, so he executed a flawless swan dive into the end zone for a Thundering Herd touchdown.

That’s just the epitome of grace right there. Simply beautiful.
Samuel’s touchdown put the bow on a great defensive effort from the Thundering Herd, who went on to win 31-10 to improve to 5-1. Southern Miss dropped to 3-3 with the loss.

Dartmouth’s robotic tackling dummy has gone national.
The “Mobile Virtual Player,” or MVP for short, was created at the Dartmouth School of Engineering to help prevent practice injuries for the football team. And on Thursday night, Big Green head coach Buddy Teevens was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about it.
Since introducing the MVP, Teevens’ players never tackle one another during practice and the coach said the team has seen a significant reduction in injuries.
And Colbert, of course, had to try it out for himself.
Colbert could use some work on his technique.

TCU and Baylor don’t play until Nov. 27, but the two fan bases are already going at one another.
Over the past 24 hours, vandalism has been reported on both campuses. Baylor confirmed that the statue of Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III was defaced with purple (TCU’s school color) spray paint on Thursday evening.
It did not take long for Baylor fans to respond as “61-58” and other Baylor references were spotted on TCU’s campus on Friday. The 61-58 score, of course, refers to Baylor’s win over the Horned Frogs last season.

UCLA has suspended punter Adam Searl indefinitely following his arrest in connection with an alleged sexual assault in October of 2014.
According to KTLA, the alleged victim identified Searl as her assailant.
Searl’s arrest came after an “exhaustive investigation” in which the victim identified Searl as her attacker, LAPD said in a news release.
The victim met her attacker outside an off-campus party on Oct. 19, 2014, and went to a nearby residence with her. She fell asleep and awoke to find herself being sexually assaulted, police said.
Searl's arrest was on three counts of suspicion of rape. His bail was set at $300,000. He was arrested Thursday afternoon and posted bail Thursday evening. The LAPD said the case will be taken to the Los Angelese County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday.
