Washington stayed quiet. Stanford was just the next opponent, the Huskies said, and there was no extra meaning or motivation. Then the celebration happened, complete with purple-clad fans rushing the field to celebrate Washington's 44-6 rout Friday night.

Oklahoma boosters say negativity about Stoops has picked up (Yahoo Sports)

FILE - In this Sept. 3, 2016, file photo, Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops watches his players walk off the field after giving up a touchdown to Houston in the first half of an NCAA football game in Houston. While Oklahoma gets ready for its conference opener at TCU this Saturday with a clean slate in pursuit of the 10th Big 12 title that Sooners were the overwhelming preseason favorite to win, they get no do-overs for a chance to return to the four-team playoff for the second season in a row after two September losses. (AP Photo/George Bridges, File)

Two prominent Oklahoma boosters who support Sooners coach Bob Stoops say the team's early struggles have made some other boosters restless. Jim Ross, a boxing announcer for CBS Sports best known for his work in professional wrestling, and Wallis Marsh, founder and CEO of the Extex Companies in Houston, say they have gotten many calls about this the past few weeks. Losses to Houston and Ohio State already have knocked the Sooners out of the national championship picture.

No. 3 Louisville and quarterback Lamar Jackson have done the improbable - turned Clemson passer Deshaun Watson into an afterthought this weekend. Tigers linebacker Ben Boulware feels it and believes Watson will be more than ready when the Cardinals (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) face No. 5 Clemson (4-0, 1-0) on Saturday night.

Jim Harbaugh reflected a bit on his own playing days when assessing the quarterback matchup for this weekend's Michigan-Wisconsin showdown. ''I think back when I was the same age as they were, the same kind of experience playing your first couple ballgames,'' Harbaugh said. Michigan's Wilton Speight is a junior but in his first season as a starter.

The Southern Conference will keep four league championships in North Carolina despite the NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference withdrawing championships because of the state law restricting the rights of LGBT people. The league said it will honor commitments for these tournaments: men's soccer in Greensboro, men's and women's basketball in Asheville and men's golf in Pinehurst. ''We don't want to punish the local host communities by pulling the championships out of the state this year,'' Commissioner John Iamarino said Friday.

Men broke key race barrier, now back on Vanderbilt campus (Yahoo Sports)

Two men who helped integrate college basketball came back to Vanderbilt University this week to share provocative views on the pace of change, take up matters they rarely dared to address as students, and describe the racism they encountered on their journey - indignities they once endured in silence on the Southern campus. The return of Perry Wallace and Godfrey Dillard, part of a candid conversation unfolding this year at Vanderbilt, marks the latest milestone in the school's long, sometimes painful history with race relations. It had been 50 years since Wallace and Dillard huddled together in the locker room at halftime of a freshman game in Starkville, Mississippi, holding hands and trembling after rival fans spat, yelled slurs and threw things at them on the court.
