Dino Babers gave a funny answer when he was asked what advice he'd give other opponents who have to prepare for Louisville QB Lamar Jackson: "Based off our performance, I don't have the right to give an opinion on that." Syracuse lost at home to Louisville 62-28 in Week 2.

Don't ask Syracuse coach Dino Babers how to stop Louisville's Lamar Jackson. Against the Orange, the Heisman front runner was one rushing yard from becoming the first FBS quarterback to rush for 200 yards and pass for 400 in a game. "Based on our defensive performance," he said, "I don't have the right to have an opinion on [stopping Jackson]."

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino was asked on the ACC call about plays Lamar Jackson has made that wowed him. He brought up the hurdle over a Syracuse defender in Week 2. "The first thing I was thinking was, 'What the heck are you doing?'" Petrino said. "The next thing I was thinking was, 'Wow, great play.'"

Orgeron says that defensive lineman Davon Godchaux will return to the team today, after chargers were dropped following his arrest and being initially cited on misdemeanor charges of domestic abuse/child endangerment. Godchaux also faced an additional change of false imprisonment. Orgeron said he will wait for all of the information to come out before making any other decision on his playing status. Orgeron also said that running back Leonard Fournette is a "game-time decision" with his ankle injury.

LSU interim coach Ed Orgeron said it was tough saying goodbye to Les Miles but he can feel new energy from this team. When it comes to the offense, Orgeron said, "You can't put a lot in in one week, but we're doing to do the best that we can." Thinks this team will be fired up against Missouri. "I expect our people to come out and play with a lot of emotion." Says this isn't about offense, defense or special teams, "it's about one team."

Saturday's matchup between Oklahoma State and Texas figures to be a massive swing game for both teams. Oklahoma State has never started out 2-3 under Mike Gundy. Texas is currently an FPI in three of its next four games, not including its trip to Stillwater.

Increasingly, you hear references to the "Nick Saban effect" and the way his four national championships in the past seven years has ratcheted up pressure on coaches like never before. Well, with Les Miles' firing at LSU, that means there have been a staggering 24 head coaching changes in the SEC since Saban arrived at Alabama in 2007. And seven of the coaches leaving or being fired had won either a national title or SEC title during their career.

The Kentucky-Alabama series is one of the most lopsided in SEC history. The Crimson Tide hold a 36-2-1 all-time record in the series. The Wildcats head to Tuscaloosa this weekend, a place where they've never won. Although the programs don't share much resemblance, they do have one thing in common: Bear Bryant is the winningest coach at each school.

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

USC RT Zach Banner was disappointed to see former players trashing the program. He got into a lengthy back-and-forth with LenDale White over the weekend and was asked about it on Tuesday. "Don't abandon ship," he said in a message directed at former players.
