A bobbling football? No problem

Lenoir-Rhyne University DB Cliff Barrett intercepted a pass ... while falling down ... while the ball was twirling end over end. Someone check his gloves for duct tape.

One newcomer to keep an eye on for Baylor's season opener against SMU: QB Jarrett Stidham. The true freshman was impressive enough in fall camp that Baylor coaches gave him the No. 2 job and moved fellow backup Chris Johnson to receiver. That means Stidham, ESPN's No. 37 overall ranked recruit for 2015, will get lots of second-half snaps in Baylor's blowout victories. Tonight's game could be the first of many.

From The Mag: Eric LeGrand still believes

Five years after a hit left him paralyzed, the former Rutgers standout says his lifelong love of football still sustains him: "Football made me who I am. I don't miss practice, I'll tell you that. But playing the game of football -- oh, I'd do anything to go back to it." His daily grind

Fun tailgating scene along The Boulevard here at SMU. Both fan bases represented for season opener. Still pretty hot but should cool down after first quarter.

Who takes over for suspended Baylor DE Shawn Oakman tonight against SMU? Expect to see K.J. Smith, who should have no trouble making the start on short notice. Smith started eight games last season for the Bears after Jamal Palmer's season-ending ACL tear and racked up five sacks and 10 TFLs as a redshirt freshman. The other late addition to Baylor's lineup, safety Taion Sells, is making his first career start in place of suspended junior Orion Stewart.

It's a cool 97 degrees on Mockingbird Ave. kickoff between Baylor-SMU in 90 minutes. Chad Morris begins his attempt to build in Dallas what Art Briles has built in Waco.

Arizona State coach Todd Graham, discussing playing quality non-conference games and its effect on a team's College Football Playoff chances said "I'd love more weight to be put on being a conference champion." If the playoff expands, Graham said he would favor an automatic bid for conference champions.

Arizona State coach Todd Graham said "top to bottom, we have the best offensive line we've had." Graham did note it was "hard to simulate" in practice how good Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett is. The battle between the Aggies' DEs vs. Arizona State's tackles will be a key matchup to watch on Saturday night.

Scout's Take: Elijah Holyfield

Holyfield should fit well within a Georgia offensive system that is not afraid to ride running backs -- like Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb, writes Tom Luginbill. Well-rounded (Insider)
