College football has nine undefeated teams, and seven of them play away from home Saturday, so odds are there wont be nine undefeated teams Sunday.No. 4 Washington?and No. 7 Nebraska?play their toughest opponents yet. No. 3 Clemson?plays at No. 12 Florida State, where the Tigers havent won in a decade.We havent had a crazy weekend yet, the kind of Saturday where one upset trumps another from early games to late. Why not this one? Time for crazy.1. Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson may be more passer than runner these days, but his competitive fire remains his best asset. Coach Dabo Swinney reminded everyone that after Watson threw the first pick-six of his life against NC State, he completed his next 14 throws (actually, it was 12 of his next 14 throws). Then Swinney noted the third-quarter play when Clemson wideout Mike Williams fumbled at the Wolfpack 4-yard line and NC States?Shawn Boone returned it 70 yards. Tight end Jordan Leggett made the tackle because Watson threw himself into two blockers. Deshaun has all of that other stuff, Swinney said, but that right there, you cant coach that. That comes from the inside.2. Its a long way from Clemson to South Carolina?these days, and a long way from 1-7 UMass, against whom 18-year-old Gamecocks freshman quarterback Jake Bentley threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns last week in his debut, to No. 18 Tennessee?coming off a bye week. While Bentley is the third quarterback the Gamecocks have started this season, he energized an offense that averaged only 14 points per game in its first six games. What made coach Will Muschamp feel good about Bentley was not what he did Saturday. It was Monday. I asked him today on the field, How much film did you get in yesterday, Muschamp said Tuesday, and he said, About two-and-a-half hours. Thats what you want your quarterback to do.3. When Penn State?blocked the kick that rocked Ohio States?world, the Nittany Lions scored their first special-teams touchdown in four years. The Nittany Lions had been the only Power 5 team not to score a touchdown in the kicking game in that time. I drew a direct connection from that failure to the Penn State roster depleted by NCAA-mandated scholarship reductions -- lack of depth, etc. But USC, which had similar reductions from 2012-14, scored 10 special-teams touchdowns -- five punt returns, three kickoff returns and two blocked kick returns -- in those three seasons. Either Penn State didnt get it done, USC did, or both.4. Nuggets unearthed while combing through USA Todays annual survey of head-coaching salaries?released Wednesday: The SEC and the Big Ten each have five of the top 14 highest-paid coaches. But the SEC has the next four. The first Pac-12 coach on the list, David Shaw of Stanford, is 19th ($4.06 million annually). The top Mountain West coach, Tim DeRuyter of Fresno State?($1.51 million) was fired Sunday. The lowest-paid coach ranked in the top 10 listed in the database -- salary information for Baylor is not available -- is Mike Riley of No. 7 Nebraska (42nd at $2.8 million). Three of the top-10 salaries are paid to African-Americans -- Charlie Strong, Kevin Sumlin and James Franklin -- a reminder of the progress already made.5. Speaking of Strong, nowhere is the disparity among the Big 12 membership more starkly illustrated than in head coaches salaries. Bob Stoops of Oklahoma?($5.55 million) and Strong of Texas?($5.2 million) have the fourth- and sixth-biggest paychecks in the game, respectively. The next-highest Big 12 salary, Gary Patterson of TCU, is 20th ($4.01 million). The lowest-paid head coach among the Power 5 conferences, and the only one who isnt paid a seven-figure salary, is David Beaty of Kansas, 1-18 in his attempt to resurrect the Jayhawks. Beaty makes $801,169 per year. The next-lowest paid Power 5 head coach, first-year man Tracy Claeys of Minnesota, makes $1.4 million.6. How about the tumultuous turnover at the top in the Pac-12? The league says that when Stanford dropped out of the AP poll two weeks ago, it was the first time since 1999 that neither Stanford, USC nor Oregon?was?ranked. Its not merely that the Cardinal and the Ducks, the only teams to win the North in the five-year history of the Pac-12, are fourth and sixth, respectively, in the division; its that the only two South teams that have yet to appear in the championship game, Utah?and Colorado, are tied for first in their division. They play on Thanksgiving Saturday; No. 4 Washington and Washington State, both undefeated and atop the North, play the Apple Cup the day before. This could be fun.7. Speaking of the Ducks, if Oregon loses at home Saturday to Arizona State, the Ducks losing streak would reach six games for the first time since they lost the last six games of the 1991 season (and the first two of 1992). Coach Mark Helfrich has begun to look to the future by giving the offense to freshman Justin Herbert. Hes the first Oregon native to start at quarterback since Kellen Clemens in 2005. Thats a reminder that Oregon must find its players outside the state. The Oregonian earlier this year named the top 20 prep quarterbacks in Oregon since the 80s. The only one of recent vintage, Brett Smith, started at Wyoming while the Ducks played Darron Thomas and Marcus Mariota. Nike Tn Shoes 2018 . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. Nike Air Max Tn For Sale . But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. http://www.niketnultraplus.com/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. Nike Tns Sale . They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name. Nike Tn Shoes Cheap .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. NEW ORLEANS -- The Portland Trail Blazers are not faring well against teams with winning records so far this season.That wont be an issue when they face the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night in the Smoothie King Center.The Blazers are 7-6 overall, but just 1-5 against teams with winning records after a 126-109 defeat against the Rockets (7-5) on Thursday night in Houston.The Pelicans (2-10) have the worst record in the NBA.Its still early, Portland All-Star point guard Damian Lillard told the Oregonian. I think weve got a lot of time to shore up things we havent done well so far. Im not happy with some of the things that have happened, but were in a good spot.Portlands only victory against a team that has a winning record came on opening night against a short-handed Utah Jazz team that was missing injured starters Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors.In their five other games against winning opponents, the Blazers lost to the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers (twice), the Chicago Bulls and the Rockets by an average of 20.8 points.Im just happy that we can say that were learning through a lot of things right now, Lillard said. Were not doing well, but (were) still finding ways to win games.That hasnt been the case for New Orleans, but help is on the way.Starting point guard Jrue Holiday is expected to make his season debut against Portland. Holiday had been away from the team to be with his wife, Lauren, who last month gave birth to the couples first child, daughter Jrue, and recently underwent brain surgery to remove a tumor.Lauren Holiday is a former U.S. womens natiional team soccer star.ddddddddddddother and daughter are doing well and stayed at home in North Carolina as Holiday rejoined his teammates and coaches, who were very supportive during his absence.Anything we needed, they were there for us, Holiday said Thursday. It was unbelievable. Im so excited. Going through a hard time, my teammates were always there for me. My teammates and the Pelicans were always there. To come back and fight for them, like they supported me, Im happy to do it.The Pelicans are happy to have their point guard back, and they are looking forward to other happy returns.It will probably take (Holiday) a couple games to get back (to form), All-Star forward Anthony Davis told the teams official website, but as long as hes on the floor.New Orleans hopes to have Davis back on the floor after he sat out an 89-82 loss at Orlando on Wednesday because of a bruised right quad. Davis practiced Thursday and is listed as questionable for the game against the Blazers.Terrence Jones started in Davis place against the Magic and scored a career-high 26 points. He also fell one rebound short of his second consecutive double-double.We tried to make sure we still had that flow as if the best big in the league was still playing with us, Jones told the teams official website. Without him, its very tough to keep that normal flow of offense.Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans returned to practice earlier this week and could return soon from offseason knee surgery.
