Report: Gurley Tore ACL

Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(ATHENS, Ga.) -- Georgia running back Todd Gurley appears to have suffered a torn ACL, according to Bryant McFadden of 120 Sports.

McFadden reports that an MRI revealed that Gurley suffered no damage to the MCL in the left knee he injured in a non-contact play in Georgia's 34-7 win over Auburn.

Gurley returned to the field Saturday after serving a four game suspension while being investigated for illegally receiving payment for his autograph.

Gurley was alleged to received at least $3,000 over two years as compensation for the autographed items.

He was considered a Heisman favorite this season, as he had run for 911 yards and had nine rushing touchdowns before his suspension.

No. 12 Baylor Mauls No. 15 Oklahoma 

ThinkStock(NORMAN, Ok) -- Bryce Petty and the Baylor Bears continued to showcase their dominance this season as they beat down Oklahoma Saturday. 

The Bears trailed the Sooners 14-3 after the first quarter. By the end of the fourth quarter Baylor had flipped the scoreboard as they defeated Oklahoma 48-14.

Petty picked apart the Sooners secondary by tossing for 387 yards and one touchdown, completing 32 of 42 passes. 

Baylor did its real damage on the ground as their running game gashed the Sooners for five rushing touchdowns. Shock Linwood and Devin Chafin each had a pair of scores and Corey Coleman added another of his own.

Coleman did his real damage through the air as he was on the receiving end of 15 of Petty's passes. He racked up 224 yards receiving and caught the team's lone passing touchdown.

A scary moment occurred in the waning moments of the fourth quarter as Sooners quarterback Trevor Knight attempted to avoid a sack.  He was being pulled down by his jersey when two other Baylor defended attempted to bring him down and piled him into the ground.  Knight lay motionless as medical personnel rushed to his side.  He was put on a stretcher and rushed to a local hospital.

Archie Manning Leaves Playoff Committee

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Citing health reasons, Archie Manning has stepped down Monday from the College Football Playoff Committee that was designed to select the four teams in the 2014 NCAA Playoff, the first in collegiate football.

"It is an honor to serve on this committee, and I enjoy the group and was looking forward to the opportunity ahead," Manning said. "My health had to be my primary concern and I intend to be up and about as soon as possible."

The 65-year-old underwent knee replacement surgery earlier this year and has begun to experience some discomfort while walking. Manning is scheduled to have another procedure done in the next month and will be unable to attend the committee's meetings.

Now a 12-member group, the committee will release its first rankings on Oct. 28. Should a 6-6 deadlock vote occur for the top two teams in the playoff, the group will continue to discuss and re-vote until a member changes their mind. There is currently no option where the committee's chair can break a tie.

With the departure of Manning, the committee has placed Mike Tranghese to work with the Mountain West Conference while Steve Weiberg will assist with the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Boston College Knocks Off (9) USC

Football Texture/iStockphoto(CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.) -- An emotional night for Boston College ended with a historic upset over No. 9 USC on Saturday night. The Eagles honored former lacrosse player Welles Crowther, who passed away in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, by wearing red bandanas and toppling the Trojans, 37-31, at home.

"The red bandanna game meant a lot. We talked a lot about Welles Crowther; we talked a lot about who he was and what it takes to be a BC man," said head coach Steve Addazio. "Our guys dug deep on this. This was a great win."

The Trojans (2-1) jumped out to a 10-0 lead after one quarter and eventually led 17-6 just one minute into the second. However, the Eagles (2-1) scored the next 24 points, pounding out multiple big plays on the ground. Sherman Alston's 54-yard run late in the half gave Boston College a 20-17 halftime advantage.

Senior quarterback Tyler Murphy rushed for 191 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown scamper in the fourth that sealed the deal. In total, Boston College rushed for 452 yards against the Trojans. It was the first time since 2002, and the fifth time overall, that the Eagles beat a top-10 opponent while being unranked themselves.

Michigan State Cruises to Season Opening Win

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(EAST LANSING, Mich.) -- A 64-yard touchdown pass from Connor Cook to Tony Lippett opened the scoring for Michigan State football in 2014. It also started a brief injury scare as Cook needed to be helped off the field following a hit to his leg.

That scare did not last long as Cook returned to throw three touchdowns in helping the eighth-ranked Michigan State Spartans to a 45-7 win over Jacksonville State. The junior completed his first nine passes of the game and finished the day going 12-for-13 for 285 yards before sitting out the second half.

The defending Big Ten Champions led 38-0 at halftime before resting the majority of their starters. The Gamecocks, considered a top team in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), didn't get on the board until the Max Shortell found Markis Merrill for a nine-yard strike.

"I was proud of our kids on how we finished the game," said Jacksonville State head coach John Grass. "We dug a hole early, and you can't do that against a team like Michigan State. They've got a team that's going to make a run at a national championship. I really believe that."

The Spartans will have a much tougher task next week when they take on the No. 3 Oregon Ducks.
