No one has stopped Clemson's offense this season, Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente said. The hope is the Hokies can cash in on turnovers and keep the ball away from Clemson with their own offense. The Tigers are 107th in turnovers.

Texas A&M's top-10 recruiting class just got a whole lot better. Anthony Hines III, the No. 65 player in the ESPN 300 and the nation's top-ranked inside linebacker, committed to the Aggies Friday afternoon. Hines selected A&M over Florida, Ohio State, TCU, Penn State and UCLA. The Aggies had long been considered the favorite to land Hines, but anytime you're recruiting against national powers like Ohio State, Penn State and Florida, it's never a sure thing. The pledge is a big boost of momentum for Kevin Sumlin, as other recruits will be excited by Hines' decision

Indiana athletic director Fred Glass and new head coach Tom Allen met with the media for about an hour, but many questions remain about the specifics of why Kevin Wilson was fired. Glass, who was a successful lawyer before becoming AD, continually referred to "philosophical differences" without going into many details.

Mark Schlabach ESPN Senior Writer 

Indiana athletics director Fred Glass said he had concerns about football coach Kevin Wilson's leadership style before giving him a new six-year contract in January. But Glass said the issues re-emerged in early November and he hired an outside law firm to conduct an internal investigation. Glass said there was no "smoking gun" in reaching the decision to ask Wilson to resign on Thursday. Glass said Wilson will be paid $542,000, equal to one year's base salary. He was owed more than $12 million for the final five years of his contract.
