College Football Week 6 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 6.

California Law Signed, Allowing Athletes to Profit From Their Likeness

California has signed a law that collegiate athletes can profit from their name and likeness responsibly. The NCAA has responded saying that they know changes need to happen, but would like to do make them on their own time. The Pac-12 made a statement about it professionalizing college sports. This will likely be litigated in court and will likely not be the final answer, but other states are following suit.

Chris Ash Fired by Rutgers

Rutgers have decided to fire head coach Chris Ash before the midway point of the season. He was in his fourth year with the team. Candidates for the job are Greg Schiano, Jim Leavitt and Butch Jones.

MSU RB Connor Heyward Enters Transfer Portal

Michigan State’s leading rusher from last season has entered the transfer portal. He only played in four games this season, so he will retain his junior-year status when he picks a new school.

Purdue’s Elijah Sindelar has Broken Clavicle; Others Out for Penn State

Purdue has the injury bug. Starting quarterback Elijah Sindelar has a broken clavicle and will need surgery. Several other players will be out for the Boilermakers’ game against Penn State.

Other News and Notes

  • Texas Tech will start Jett Duffey at quarterback moving forward.
  • Baylor and head coach Matt Rhule have agreed to a contract extension through 2027.
  • Louisiana and head coach Billy Napier have agreed to a contract extension through 2023.

This will be updated up until week 6 kicks off!
