No. 11 UCLA RB Steven Manfro carted from practice (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: September 2, 2014, 10:20 pm]
UCLA running back Steven Manfro left the practice field on a cart Tuesday after apparently injuring his knee. Manfro is a part of the No. 11 Bruins' three-tailback rotation along with Paul Perkins and Jordon James. Sometimes they don't end up being as serious as they looked, but that looked pretty serious to me.'' Manfro had two carries for minus-5 yards as the Bruins' running game struggled in their season opener at Virginia. Freshman Nate Starks is likely to assume an increased role if Manfro's injury is significant, but the Bruins have plenty of work to do in their running game no matter who ends up carrying the ball.

Louisville defeats Miami 31-13 in ACC debut (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: September 2, 2014, 3:56 am]
Dominique Brown's 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Gerald Christian's 10-yard TD catch late in the fourth backed Louisville's big defensive performance that helped beat Miami 31-13 Monday night. The victory provided a successful Atlantic Coast Conference debut for the Cardinals and to Bobby Petrino's second coaching stint at the school. Despite the 18-point margin, Louisville showed little of the offensive efficiency expected in Petrino's return as the Cardinals outgained the Hurricanes 336-244 in a ragged game offensively for both teams. Louisville's new 3-4 defense provided the saving grace with three takeaways, including one that followed a costly fumble by Cardinals quarterback Will Gardner inside his 15.

After a lackluster offensive showing in its opener, No. 25 Washington will have a different quarterback for coach Chris Petersen's home debut. Cyler Miles gets the start against Eastern Washington, Petersen announced on Monday. The sophomore replaces Jeff Lindquist, who struggled to move the offense for most of Washington's 17-16 win at Hawaii. He made a spot start against Oregon State a year ago and completed 15 of 22 passes for 162 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in guiding the Huskies to a win.

No. 1 Florida State down a pass rusher; WR returns (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: September 1, 2014, 9:22 pm]
Florida State's Chris Casher remained listed as the starting outside linebacker on Monday's depth chart, but coach Jimbo Fisher said his status remains unknown. Fisher said the Seminoles are waiting for further information on the sophomore. Casher was pulled from the lineup due to an ''academic-related matter'' shortly before Florida State's 37-31 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday. ''There's no doubt it'' was an adjustment, Fisher said, ''because he's an excellent player, a great young man and had a great camp.'' The top-ranked Seminoles, however, will have sophomore receiver Jesus ''Bobo'' Wilson back from what became a one-game suspension.

Florida coach Will Muschamp reinstated Robinson, Cummings and Bostwick on Monday, saying they would play Saturday against Eastern Michigan (1-0). Muschamp could have kept their suspensions in place against Eastern Michigan or said they would be suspended against Idaho if the game is rescheduled.

Nebraska DE Randy Gregory doubtful for McNeese St (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: September 1, 2014, 6:25 pm]
