Around the turf

Texas, still not back ... Alabama has won national titles with Greg McElroy and AJ McCarron at quarterback. Now, in Tua Tagovailoa, the top-ranked Crimson Tide might have the best quarterback in college football. Not fair. ... Eleven years to the day Appalachian State, still an FCS team at the time, beat No. 5 Michigan in the Big House, the Mountaineers pushed Penn State into overtime. The Nittany Lions hung on, but if there is a lingering concern for Penn State it is the rebuilt defense that allowed 6 yards per play ... Kyler Murray and Oklahoma will certainly face tougher opponents than Florida Atlantic, but the Sooners’ new starting quarterback gave glimpse of why points should still be plentiful for Lincoln Riley’s offense ... Chip Kelly lost his debut at UCLA to Cincinnati and will take his Bruins to Norman, Oklahoma, next week. Just getting to a bowl would be a win for Kelly this season.
