UCLA coach Jim Mora and defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich had a bit of a disagreement during the first half of Saturday’s game against Oregon, and the two coaches got into a heated discussion after a touchdown by the Ducks.
Mora appeared to be upset with the defensive playcalling after an Oregon touchdown. And Ulbrich was not happy with the criticism, handing Mora the playsheet and taking off his headset.
Ulbrich returned to his role on the next defensive series for UCLA, but you can bet this sideline disagreement will be a topic of conversation after the game.

Georgia running back Todd Gurley has been suspended indefinitely as a result of an investigation into a violation of NCAA rules.
According to ESPN, Gurley is under investigation for the use of his likeness and money for memorabilia.
Gurley is the leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy and has rushed for 773 yards and eight touchdowns in five games.
With Gurley sidelined, Georgia is expected to lean on true freshman Nick Chubb at running back.
Gurley’s suspension is a huge loss for a team entering a critical stretch of the season. The Bulldogs play at Missouri this Saturday and travel to Arkansas next Saturday.

NC State hopes to earn its first ACC win under second-year coach Dave Doeren this Saturday, as the Wolfpack host Boston College.
And to help NC State’s victory hopes, the program unveiled a new helmet for Saturday’s game.
The helmet features a logo of Tuffy (the name of the school’s mascot) instead of the normal power “S” on the side.
Check out NC State’s new helmet for Week 7:

On Monday, the Wildcats unveiled a gothic-style uniform for the upcoming matchup.
Check out Northwestern’s new look for 2014:
Another week, another Hail Mary in the Pac-12. Arizona State used a Hail Mary touchdown pass from backup quarterback Mike Bercovici to receiver Jaelen Strong to defeat USC on Saturday night.
Last week, USC used a Hail Mary pass before halftime to help defeat Oregon State, but the Trojans were on the wrong end of pass defense this week.
Check out Strong’s touchdown catch (along with some bad pass defense from USC):

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson is one of the ACC’s rising stars, and the true freshman delivered a huge performance in Saturday’s win over NC State.
Watson completed 17 of 29 passes for 267 yards and two scores and added a highlight-reel touchdown run in the second quarter.

Texas A&M suffered its first loss of the year on Saturday, dropping a 48-31 matchup in Starkville to the Bulldogs.
Receiver Speedy Noil was one of the team’s bright spots, catching three passes for 50 yards and two scores.
Noil’s touchdown catch in the third quarter was one of the weekend’s best receptions, as the freshman caught the ball just short of the goal-line and stretched to reach into the endzone:

Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton will miss the remainder of the 2014 season due to a knee injury. Keeton suffered a torn ACL in 2013 and returned in time for the 2014 opener but injured his knee again versus Wake Forest on Sept. 13.
With Keeton sidelined, Utah State will turn to sophomore Darell Garretson under center. The sophomore started seven games in 2013 and threw for 1,436 yards and 10 scores.
Keeton’s status for 2015 is uncertain, as there’s a possibility he can get a medical redshirt and return next year. Or Keeton may choose to go to the NFL – assuming he’s 100 percent.
Keeton was one of the nation’s top quarterbacks from outside of the Power 5 conferences and is a huge loss for Utah State. Garretson has experience, but he is not as mobile as Keeton was throughout his career.

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.
