Headline News

UCLA Receiver, Nick Pasquale Dies after being hit by car

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department said Pasquale was struck about 1:30 a.m.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Pasquale was trying to cross a street. Sheriff’s Lt. Gary Strachan said the car’s driver stopped, called authorities and stayed with Pasquale until they arrived.

The accident is under investigation. Strachan said no one was arrested.

Pasquale, a redshirt freshman, walked on at UCLA last fall after playing at San Clemente High School, where he was a three-year starter. The 5-foot-7 receiver earned the nickname “Pacman” from his teammates while participating on the scout team in practices last season and again this summer.

“This is a tragic loss,” UCLA coach Jim Mora said. “Nick was an outstanding young man who had a positive impact on everyone who knew him. He was a great teammate who was loved and respected by his entire team. Our thoughts are with the Pasquale family.”

Bill Snyder’s Letter to North Dakota State after Defeat

Bill Snyder writes a letter to quarterback Brock Jensen stating,

Congratulations Brock. I was truly impressed with you and your teammates. You played so very well, virtually error free and with such poise. I wish you a great year and hope you achieve all you desire. Please share my thoughts with your teammates.

Warm Regards,

Bill Snyder

Jadeveon Clowney Frustrated

“Very frustrating,” the star defensive end told reporters. “I told the coaches you got to put me somewhere else — in the middle if you want to — somewhere I can make some plays [to] help my team get in position to win. But [Georgia] took me right out of the game.”

USC names Kessler Starter

The longest pass for either quarterback was eight yards.

USC’s 54 yards passing yards were its fewest in a game since 1998.

“I’ve never heard of stats like we had today,” Kiffin said. “That’s very discouraging and obviously that falls on me.”

Texas DC, Manny Diaz Fired after 550 Rushing Yards given up at BYU

“Our performance on defense last night was unacceptable, and we need to change that,” Texas coach Mack Brown said in a statement released by the school. “Greg will be here tonight and get with the staff and players to start preparing for Ole Miss. He will be running our defense immediately. We’re very fortunate that Greg has been around, watched all of our practice video and has a good scouting report moving forward.”

Major Injuries

Braxton Miller sprained MCL (Day to Day)

“Braxton Miller is a day-to-day decision,” Meyer said during his Monday news conference. “He’s feeling much better, but he’s just a little stiff. We’ll know more [Tuesday] morning after that 48-hour period with this injury.”

Cincinnati QB, Munchie Legaux Out for Season (Knee Injury)

Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a gruesome knee injury, Bearcats coach Tommy Tuberville confirmed to multiple media outlets Sunday.

“It was pretty significant,” Tuberville said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Obviously we all saw it on TV.”

Oklahoma QB, Trevor Knight out 2 weeks (Bruised Knee)

“Trevor does have a bruised knee,” Stoops said. “He will in all likelihood be out for this week. Blake Bell will start.”

Texas, RB/WR, Daje Johnson out for Ole Miss

“When you lose a guy that’s involved in packages, like Daje, obviously you’ve got to find somebody else to put in that place, and certain things immediately go out the window,” Texas offensive coordinator Major Applewhite said after the BYU game.

TCU, QB, Casey Pachall (Forearm Injury, Out This Week)

“I really feel bad for him if it’s [serious],” Patterson said, “for everything he’s gone through to get to this point.”
