The boo birds are out at Notre Dame Stadium at halftime, and why wouldn't they be? The Irish have been sloppy in all three phases so far, allowing redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones to go 13 of 15 for 147 yards and 2 TDs in leading Duke to a 28-21 lead. The Irish have missed a field goal, given away a fumble and allowed a kick return TD. Additionally, Duke is without its best player in DeVon Edwards (leg). But the Blue Devils have bounced back from an early 14-0 hole, and they'll also get back safety Deondre Singleton, who had to sit the first half because of targeting last week.

Don Brown said this week he wanted to force Penn State into a lot of "high freeze" (looking to sideline for the play after initially getting set) to slow things down. He has, and it's working. Michigan has sacks on one-third of the Nittany Lions' pass attempts and has held them to negative-3 rushing yards.

Tennessee gets inside Florida's 5-yard line (again) and Joshua Dobbs throws an interception to Quincy Wilson in the end zone. That makes two trips close to the red zone (seven inside the 10-yard line) with zero points. The Vols also have four drops in this game. According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Vols had the lowest drop pct in the SEC this season (2.7 percent). They had only dropped 2 passes in their first 3 games.

Duke DB DeVon Edwards exited Saturday's game with a left knee injury after getting hurt while returning a kickoff and won't return. Edwards' left leg appeared to buckle as he returned Notre Dame's first kickoff 21 yards. The redshirt senior captain has earned numerous All-ACC and All-America mentions, as he has 6 career kickoff return touchdowns, one shy of the ACC record. Edwards also has 2 career interception returns for touchdowns.

Rookie Alex Reyes helped the Cardinals stay in the middle of the wild card race with a laborious, but impressive outing Saturday in a 10-4 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Reyes pitched out of trouble, but still needed 115 pitches to get through five innings. The Cardinals chased Jason Hammel from the game in the third inning and kept adding against the Cubs' bullpen.The Cardinals pulled into a virtual tie with the Giants and trail the Mets by a game in the wild-card standings pending those teams' night games.

Wisconsin RB Corey Clement on how the Badgers are handling their schedule: "I like these big situations that we come across. I just think we play better against bigger opponents. So keep bringing on the big matchups, and we'll be ready for them." Wish granted. Wisconsin plays at Michigan next week, then hosts Ohio State after a bye.

Duke just absolutely took it to Notre Dame on its last drive. Redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones completed 6 straight passes to open the drive, then handed it off to Jela Duncan, who went untouched for an 18-yard TD rush. Just like that, Duke has tied the game at 14-all after falling behind 14-0 quickly. The Irish made several substitutions in the defensive backfield on that drive, and you have to wonder about that group's confidence moving forward.

Terry Collins acknowledged it's probably a bullpen role or nothing for Steven Matz at this point. Matz was scratched from Friday's planned return because of continued shoulder discomfort. He has not appeared in a game since Aug. 14.
