Running back Todd Gurley will miss a third consecutive game this week, Georgia coach Mark Richt estimated after Wednesday's practice.
Richt has said there was a realistic chance that Gurley would play Saturday at Vanderbilt before a less-than inspiring practice. Gurley has a high-ankle sprain and missed games against Missouri and Tennessee. He was initially hurt Sept. 28 against LSU.
Keith Marshall (torn ACL) is also out of the lineup. Freshmen Brendan Douglas and J.J. Green are sharing the load with the Bulldogs' top two rushers out.
---Do not adjust the television set -- those Oregon Ducks helmets are indeed highlighter pink. The apparel company operated by Oregon alumnus Phil Knight revealed the Ducks would don neon pink helmets with a forest green "O" logo and pink gloves, cleats and socks in support of breast cancer awareness month for Saturday's game against Washington State.
At least 25 helmets are to be auctioned off including a set autographed by Oregon great Dan Fouts, Ahmad Rashad, Joey Harrington and Knight. Proceeds will benefit scientific research, Nike said. Funds raised will be contributed to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
---Condoleezza Rice has unassailable credentials for most any position. The former Secretary of State was part of a hiring party that brought Ty Willingham to Stanford and she's a professor, but she has been a college football viewer since age 4. Now, she's assigned to consume the game in infinite portions as a member of the College Football Playoff selection committee.
"This is not a chore," she told the Dan Patrick Show on Thursday, "This is a joy. Some of my happiest memories are around college football."
Rice's late father was a university administrator and football coach. She said he taught her about the sport, and would be pleased that she's "finally doing something" in line with the expectations he had when Rice was born. Her father, Rice said, was expecting a linebacker.
