Pittsburgh's first-year head coach Pat Narduzzi stressed knowledge as a key tenet to the success of the football program he looks to build. The Panthers concluded their spring practice period with the team's Blue-Gold spring game on Saturday. ''I think we all know his expectations now and the energy he expects and that he's not kidding when he says he wants to win a championship,'' quarterback Chad Voytik said. He wants to win a championship and he thinks that we can.'' The Panthers have some way to go before they can realize their head coach's lofty expectations.

Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany says making freshmen ineligible in college football and basketball could help correct the imbalance between athletics and academics. He did, however, lay out a plan to raise scholarship limits in FBS football and Division I men's basketball and add scholarships in women's sports to stay compliant with Title IX. The increased costs would be covered with money from TV and media rights deals for the College Football Playoff and NCAA men's basketball tournament. Since February, Delany has been pushing the idea of again making freshmen ineligible to compete in football and basketball.

Cal defense shines for a change at scripted spring game (Yahoo Sports)

Instead of the Golden Bears' high-powered offense dominating a thinned-out defense, Cal struggled to score for much of Saturday's California Spring Football Experience. In seven full 11-on-11 drives, Cal's offense managed just one touchdown against a defense that often look overmatched last season. ''I was very encouraged by the number of plays they made,'' coach Sonny Dykes said.

Childs runs for 83 yards, TD in Oklahoma State spring game (Yahoo Sports)

Rennie Childs ran for 83 yards and a touchdown to help the White team beat the Orange 31-13 in Oklahoma State's spring game on Saturday. Desmond Roland was a senior last year and Tyreek Hill was kicked off the team, so the spring offered an opportunity for Childs to establish himself before highly touted Chris Carson and Jeff Carr arrive for fall practice. Childs busted loose for a 60-yard run early in the second quarter, and tight end Zac Veatch caught a touchdown pass from Mason Rudolph on the next play to put the White up 14-6. Childs' 5-yard touchdown run in the second quarter extended the White's lead to 28-6.

Swoopes still the starter at QB after Texas wraps spring (Yahoo Sports)

Texas started spring practice with a quarterback duel and ended it with last season's starter, Tyrone Swoopes, entrenched as the No. 1. Swoopes went 17-of-31 passing for 159 yards and ran for a touchdown Saturday as Texas ended spring drills with the annual Orange-White Scrimmage. Jerrod Heard was 20 of 29 for 177 yards and also ran for a score, but threw an interception and tapered off after two early flashy drives. In his postgame comments, coach Charlie Strong at first suggested the competition for No. 1 was still open, but later made it clear it's still Swoopes' job to lose between now and a trip to South Bend, Indiana, for the Sept. 5 season opener at Notre Dame.

Critic to judge: New NCAA head-injury deal as bad as first (Yahoo Sports)

An attorney says a reworked settlement with the NCAA over concussions is just as bad as the original because thousands of brain-damaged former athletes still won't get just compensation. The hearing was the first since a new settlement was reached in a class-action lawsuit against the NCAA. The judge overseeing the case rejected the first settlement in December. Edelson, who represents plaintiffs opposed to the new settlement, said after the hearingt the revamped agreement doesn't do enough.
