College Football Notebook: Jersey Switch, Locker Talk & Pryor's Groupies

Picture Of Alex Albright

One Great Season

Though Boston College suffered a 31-13 throttling at the hands of Notre Dame over the weekend, there was still some good to report from the Eagles' camp Saturday.

Alex Albright, a Cincinnati St. Xavier graduate now playing defensive end for Boston College, switched jersey numbers, from 98 to 78, to honor the late Matt James.

James was the St. X senior who died when he fell from a fifth-floor balcony at a Florida hotel last spring. He had signed to play on the offensive line for Brian Kelly at Notre Dame a month earlier.

College Football Notebook: Week 3 Review

Picture of Andy Dalton

One Great Season

People need to start paying attention to TCU quarterback Andy Dalton.

The senior completed 91 percent of his passes — ninety-one — in the Horned Frogs' 45-10 thrashing of Baylor Saturday. He finished 21-of-23 for 267 yards and two touchdowns. Four of his completions covered at least 25 yards.

For the season, Dalton is 53-of-71 (75 percent) for 624 yards, four TDs and two INTs. Are they-earth shattering numbers worthy enough to make Dalton a shoe-in Heisman invitee in December?

Of all the tight races expected in college football this year, and there will be many, the PAC 10 looks to be the most wide open.

Depending on injuries, luck and a bounce or two here or there, any one of seven teams could conceivably win the conference in 2010. Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Arizona, California, Stanford and even a depleted USC team will contend for the league's BCS bowl bid.

Four of these teams will be led by star quarterbacks. Washington's Jake Locker has been touted as a potential No. 1 NFL draft pick for two years now. Stanford's Andrew Luck, only a sophomore, is a legitimate Heisman candidate and many think he'll continue to flourish under popular coach Jim Harbaugh despite the loss of Toby Gerhart.
