Nothing out of the ordinary in Lincoln during the national anthem after a politically charged week. Both teams, as usual, were in their locker rooms during its playing, which came after a moment of silence for longtime former Nebraska offensive line coach Milt Tenopir, who died this week.

We'll learn more about Miami next week against Florida State, but Mark Richt and his assistants have done an exceptional job. Depth was a major concern for the Canes entering the season, especially on defense, but coordinator Manny Diaz and his staff are improving the unit. Miami entered today leading the FBS in points allowed (7.7) and percentage of plays for zero or negative yards (48.6). The defense wasn't as sharp at Georgia Tech but still contributed a touchdown and allowed just three conversions on 12 third-down attempts.

Washington's win was the first time this decade that Stanford or Oregon lost to another Pac-12 North team (other than themselves) by more than one score. In fact, the Cardinal and Ducks were 48-2 against the rest of the Pac-12 North this decade before the Huskies' win. We are finally witnessing a transfer in the balance of power in that division.

A group of students expected to grow to more than 200 is planning to sit through the national anthem at Florida State. Marvel Joseph, one of the organizers, said he wants to continue the conversation surrounding injustices in America and thanked Colin Kaepernick for inspiring him. "He took his platform to a whole other level. He doesn't have to do it, so I want to use my platform and take stand and sit with him." The group will raise their fists at the end of the anthem. They did not talk to any football players about joining.
