Feast on these links. They're low-carb.

  • Rutgers made waves in recruiting this summer by landing a bevy of high-profile, early commitments. But that recruiting class might be falling apart. The Star-Ledger's Tom Luicci writes that Malcolm Bunche, a 6-foot-6, 318-pound defensive tackle from Delaware has reopened his recruitment. Rutgers already lost running back Desmond Scott, who changed his commitment to Duke, and top center prospect Mark Brazinski has reopened his recruitment as well.

  • Cincinnati players are expressing full confidence in redshirt freshmen Zach Collaros and Chazz Anderson at the quarterback position, Bill Koch says in the Cincinnati Enquirer. Brian Kelly has not announced a starter and won't do so until game time.

"My sense right now is that I want Marshall to prepare for multiple quarterbacks, and I think each one of them brings something different to the table."

  • Kicker Tony Ciaravino and punter Desi Cullen are two of the unsung heroes for Connecticut, Desmond Conner writes in the Hartford Courant.

  • South Florida is carrying the biggest target in the Big East now, a role the Bulls have had limited experience in handling, Greg Auman writes in the St. Petersburg Times.

  • How much has coordinator Ron English meant to the Louisville defense? One Cardinal says "everything." The Courier-Journal's Michael Grant has the story.
