Good morning college football fans, and happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend—here are some interesting headlines you may have missed over the last several days.Blog Photo - College Football: Weekend News Roundup


- The Joe Paterno statue that was removed from its platform into Beaver Stadium has now been moved to an undisclosed location as of Saturday morning. Penn State will not confirm its new home.

- Iowa running back De'Andre Johnson has been suspended indefinitely from the team after getting into trouble with the law for the second time in three days.

- A good number of Penn State's prospects for the recruiting class of 2013 have stated that they will stand by the program despite the harsh NCAA sanctions. This includes offensive lineman Brendan Mahon, wide receiver Will Fuller and tight end Adam Breneman, among others.

- Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer sure is making a name for himself, and not in a good way. Arkansas State released the two-time 1,000-yard rusher for violating team rules Sunday, leaving him without a home just one month before the upcoming season begins. Due to NCAA double-transfer rules, Dyer will be ineligible to any school he attends for 2012-13—sorry Pitt State fans.

- Ohio State freshman running back Bri'onte Dunn was charged with possession of marijunana and drug paraphernalia at a traffic stop late Sunday afternoon. Urban Meyer has not acted on the situation yet, but we can expect some sort of disciplinary action.
