College Football Week 3 News and Notes

College football is now in season. With the more weeks that go on, more news and notes will be put together. Here are some of the things happening around the sport of college football heading into week 3.

The injury happened in the third quarter against Eastern Michigan, a game which Kentucky won 38-17. Wilson was 12-3 in his first 15 starts at the school. As a junior, he will have at least one year of eligibility left.
