- Florida wide receivers coach Aubrey Hill resigned on Friday because he didn't want to be a "distraction" to the team. He was involved in the Miami (Fla.) booster scandal during his time as a Hurricane.

- The NCAA is working on a new bowl eligibility contingency that would allow a 5-7 team to make a postseason appearance if there weren't enough teams available.

- Penn State offensive lineman Ryan Nowicki was the eighth player to transfer when he made his decision to leave for Illinois Friday. He is a redshirt freshman and has four years of eligibility left.

- All-American wide receiver and Heisman contender Sammy Watkins was suspended by Clemson coach Dabo Swinney for the first two games of the season following an offseason drug arrest. The Tigers square off against Auburn in Week 1, with a non-conference battle against Ball State the following week.

- Pitt coach Paul Chryst suspended junior offensive lineman Juantez Houston and freshman receiver Chris Davis Friday, while announcing that sophomore quarterback Mark Myers will transfer.

- On Saturuday, TCU quarterback Casey Pachall admitted to failing a drug test back in February. He stated that he had used marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy during different times, but will not face team discipline.

- Oklahoma sophomore receiver Kameel Jackson was dismissed from the team Saturday afternoon after failing to meet team classroom standards.

- Penn State's leading returning receiver, Justin Brown, officially transferred to Oklahoma on Sunday morning. He is No. 9 for Nittany Lion transfers, and a huge blow to an offense that has already lost star running back Silas Redd to USC.

- Former USC lineman Fred Matua passed away Sunday night due to a heart-related issue. He was a member of the 2003 and '04 squads that won the national championship, and was only 28 years old.
