A.J. GREEN WHAT A CATCH!! Andy Dalton throws a Hail Mary at the end of the half and A.J. Green comes down with it for Cincinnati.

Field Yates @FieldYates

Wow. AJ Green hauls in an incredible 48-yard Hail Mary catch from Andy Dalton to end the half for the Bengals.

I would fully expect former Cal coach Jeff Tedford to be the leading candidate at Fresno State. Tedford is looking to lead a program again and Fresno is an ideal spot for him, as he played and coaches there. There could be other candidates, but this search almost for sure will start with Tedford.

After giving up 734 yards passing to Patrick Mahomes, Oklahoma now ranks next-to-last nationally in pass defense. Only Arizona State's is statistically worse.

ESPN Junior 300 running back Ricky Slade was one of many prospects visiting Penn State on Saturday for its big win against Ohio State. Slade, the No. 27 ranked prospect in 2018, said the game and experience was something he hasn't yet seen on other visits. "It was the best atmosphere I've been in," Slade said. "It did help (Penn State) because it showed that they are making progress."

Some questioned whether Craig Bohl could make the transition to the FBS from FCS power North Dakota State. After going 6-18 in his first two seasons at Wyoming, Bohl has the Pokes at 5-2 and 3-0 in the Mountain West, their best start since joining the conference.

How unlikely was the way Penn State beat Ohio State on Saturday night? According to ESPN stats & information, Penn State had been the only Power 5 team without a special teams touchdown over the last four seasons until the blocked field goal and return by Grant Haley. Other than offensive line, special teams took the biggest hit from the scholarship penalties so this is a good sign for Penn State's future.
