Oregon is no stranger to alternate uniforms and designs, and the Ducks have unveiled a different look for Thursday night’s game against Arizona.
The uniforms feature pink accents, which are designed to help support breast cancer awareness.
Oregon also wore a similar design last season.

Kansas fired coach Charlie Weis after Saturday’s 23-0 loss to Texas. Weis was just 6-22 in three seasons as the Jayhawks’ head coach and had only one win in Big 12 play.
Defensive coordinator Clint Bowen will serve as the interim head coach. Through four games, Kansas is 2-2 with wins over Central Michigan and SEMO.
Weis was an odd hire for athletic director Sheahon Zenger and was a questionable move for a program that has struggled to show consistent on-field progress in the Big 12.
And in Weis’ three seasons, it was hard to find progress, as Kansas continued to rank as the worst team in the Big 12.
Weis took over at Kansas after serving as Florida’s offensive coordinator for one season (2011), which came on the heels of a one-year stop with the Chiefs.
Prior to the 2011 season in the NFL, Weis went 35-27 as Notre Dame’s head coach, which included two losing seasons over his final three years.

Missouri’s offense was stuck in neutral for most of the game, but the Tigers eventually got on track and upset South Carolina 21-20.
The top play of the game had to be Missouri’s late touchdown to go ahead 21-20 on the scoreboard.
However, a close second has to be quarterback Maty Mauk running into South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier in the second half.
Needless to say, Spurrier didn’t look very happy after this one:

Ohio State assistant strength and conditioning coach Anthony Schlegel recorded one of the top plays (and hits) of Week 5 by leveling a fan that ran onto the field during Saturday night’s win over Cincinnati.
Schlegel – a former linebacker at Ohio State – bodyslammed the fan that ran onto the field and promptly escorted him off after the hit.
Best tackle of the weekend?

Oklahoma State and Texas Tech’s Thursday night showdown had plenty of offense, but much of the pregame focus was on the attire for the both teams.
The Cowboys and Red Raiders unveiled alternate uniforms for the Thursday night conference game, and both teams hit a home run with the different uniforms and helmets.

Louisville’s Thursday night showdown against Florida State on Oct. 30 is one of the top remaining games in the ACC this year.
And the Cardinals will attempt to upset the Seminoles with an alternate uniform, which the school is calling “Showtime.”
The uniforms have an overall gray scheme and feature camo accents and chrome red logos.

Week 4 provided its share of last-minute finishes, including the Florida State-Clemson showdown in Tallahassee. And if you went to bed early, you certainly missed the ending of Arizona-California.
The Golden Bears appeared to be in control of this game, leading at halftime 28-6 and held a 45-30 lead with five minutes to go in the fourth.
However, Arizona rallied behind redshirt freshman quarterback Anu Solomon, scoring three touchdowns in the final five minutes.
Solomon’s best play occurred with no time remaining, as he connected with Austin Hill on a 47-yard touchdown toss to win.
Utah receiver Kaelin Clay has quickly emerged as one of the Pac-12’s most dangerous return men in 2014.
And Clay had a huge punt return for a touchdown during the first half of Saturday’s game against Michigan, and the senior decided to add a little flair by striking the Heisman pose.
Credit Clay for an awesome return – but let’s hold off on the Heisman:

As expected, Michigan State handled Eastern Michigan without too much trouble on Saturday.
The Spartans rotated several players into action and were able to rest the starters thanks to a huge lead.
The Eagles are rebuilding under first-year coach Chris Creighton, and this is a program that ranks near the bottom of the FBS in most preseason projections.
EMU provided one of the low-lights of Week 4 with this failed snap. Major, major fail here by the Eagles.
Iowa’s offense got a spark in the second half from backup quarterback C.J. Beathard, which included this bomb to receiver Damond Powell.
Powell is one of Iowa’s fastest receivers and clearly beat the defense on this route.
While Powell’s speed and Beathard’s throw were nice, neither were as awesome as Powell’s one-handed grab to give Iowa a huge momentum boost in the third quarter.
