  • South Florida linebacker Donte Spires has persisted through a multitude of obstacles to be in position to help the Bulls.

  • Two of Louisville's starting offensive linemen had a year wasted by Steve Kragthorpe. But they're trying not to complain about it. (Throw in Doug Beaumont's wasted freshman year, and Kragthorpe showed some incredibly poor roster management in 2007).

  • Pitt's offensive line will be in for a challenge against Utah, but it gets challenged every day in practice.

  • Jock Sanders could break West Virginia's receiving record, but he's in a crowded mix at his position. Which is just fine by him.
