    Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah had a huge day against Rutgers, and the senior continued to stake his claim in the Heisman picture by recording over 200 yards on the ground.

    Abdullah put the Cornhuskers up 14-7 early in the second quarter with this touchdown run, which was highlighted by a ridiculous juke move to embarrass the Rutgers defense.

    In Saturday’s game against UAB, Arkansas dipped into the playbook and scored when its offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola threw a touchdown pass in the first half.

    Yes, that’s correct – an offensive lineman threw a touchdown pass against UAB.

    Tretola is a mammoth lineman – 6-foot-5 and 350 pounds. And for a big guy, his pass was impressive.

    Without question, this is going to be one of the best plays of the 2014 season:

    Pittsburgh is going retro for the rest of the year. The old “Pitt script” helmets are popular among its fanbase, and the Panthers plan to break out the logo for their design the rest of the year.

    Pittsburgh will wear the “Pitt script” helmets for the remainder of 2014, and judging by the fan reaction today, it wouldn’t be a surprise if these make a return in 2015.

    A big thumbs up to Pittsburgh for the script logo on the helmet:

    California has significantly improved in Sonny Dykes’ second year, and the offense behind quarterback Jared Goff is one of the best in the Pac-12.

    Goff and Chris Harper have developed a nice rapport over the last two years, and Harper kept California’s offense on track against UCLA by catching this ridiculous one-handed touchdown pass in the first half.

    Check out Harper’s touchdown catch from Week 8:

    West Virginia shook up the Big 12 standings by defeating Baylor 41-27 on Saturday. The Mountaineers knocked off the Bears thanks to the prolific combination of quarterback Clint Trickett and receiver Kevin White.

    Trickett threw for 322 yards, while White caught eight passes for 132 yards and two scores.

    White has topped 100 receiving yards in every game this year and is clearly one of the nation’s top receivers.

    Check out the senior’s awesome one-handed grab to give West Virginia a 34-27 lead in the fourth quarter:

    Quarterback Nick Montana and the Tulane coaching staff had a massive fail in the first half of Saturday’s game against UCF.

    The Green Wave were attempting to get a field goal before the end of the quarter, and with time winding down, Montana spiked the ball to give his team a chance for points. However, there's just one problem: Montana spiked the ball on fourth down, ending any hope Tulane had of getting points.

    Remember FAU doing this last year against Miami?

    Running back Mike Davis helped to lead an easy win for South Carolina against Furman on Saturday, and the junior topped 100 yards and reached the endzone twice in the first half.

    Davis also delivered a highlight-reel run in the first half, which included a monster stiff arm to a Furman defender.

    Illinois has a new uniform design for 2014, but the Fighting Illini have unveiled a special look for the Oct. 25 game against Minnesota.

    The “gray ghost” uniforms are a tribute to Red Grange and the 1924 game against Michigan.

    The Oregon-Washington matchup on Saturday is one of the top games for Week 8. The Northwest rivalry has plenty of intrigue, and the Ducks plan to go retro with their uniforms on Saturday.

    Oregon is wearing throwback uniforms from 1994, which mark a critical moment in the program’s history. In 1994, cornerback Kenny Wheaton intercepted a pass from Washington quarterback Damon Huard and returned it for a touchdown, helping the Ducks reach the Rose Bowl.

    Here’s a look at Oregon’s retro uniforms for Saturday’s game:
