Gators to use Hargreaves on offense, too

Florida CB Vernon Hargreaves III will apparently get the chance to use his star power on the offensive side of the ball as well. Coach Jim McElwain told SI: "This guy loves to practice. He's not a prima donna, which really to me is what sets him apart. I'll go ahead and tell you, but we've got packages for him on offense, too."

Tough loss for Chris Petersen, especially to have a chance there at the end. But he made the rounds seeking out Boise players and coaches afterward. All class.

Oregon State QB hurdles defender

Even though Seth Collins' run was called back for a hold, it's worth watching for the beautiful hurdle.

Oregon State's bid to replace the graduated Sean Mannion began with a competition of 7 quarterbacks this past spring. Over half a year later, a victor has finally been named. True freshman Seth Collins is the Beavers' starter following an explosive dual threat performance in a 26-7 win over Weber State. He struggled early, but ultimately racked up 152 rushing yards and 2 passing touchdowns -- including a perfect 44-yard deep strike to Jordan Villamin. Oregon State wasn't great Friday, but the multifaceted explosiveness of their new young quarterback should generate optimism.
