Huskers see no need to celebrate their 4-0 start (Yahoo Sports)
Nebraska has made it through non-conference play unbeaten for the first time in three years. The 21st-ranked Huskers (4-0) have endured embarrassing losses at least once in each of Bo Pelini's first six seasons. ''Any given week, anything can happen,'' running back Ameer Abdullah said.
Loss to Miss St. yields QB questions for LSU (Yahoo Sports)
In LSU's worst game of this young season, reserve quarterback Brandon Harris looked better than ever in the little playing time he had. The freshman's stirring performance in the dying minutes of a humbling 34-29 loss to Mississippi State begged the question of what might have been if the young quarterback with the big arm had more snaps. ''We are still going to look at the overall body of work and the things that we can do with him.'' Mississippi State, which went from unranked up to No. 14 in the AP Poll on Sunday, appeared to have LSU down for the count when the Bulldogs kicked a field goal to make it 34-10 early in the fourth quarter. Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott was having his way with an LSU defense plagued by communication problems and missed assignments in giving up 10 plays of 20-yards or more, including touchdowns of 74 and 56 yards.
Alabama's play ranged from great to awful in win (Yahoo Sports)
Alabama's numbers were a mish-mash of the awfully pretty and pretty awful: four turnovers, 11 penalties, 645 yards - and one more win. The third-ranked Crimson Tide retained its perfect record with Saturday's 42-21 win over Florida but the performance was anything but pristine. I think that's a lot easier to do when you eliminate negative plays.'' He said many of the 11 penalties for 80 yards resulted from lack of discipline but that this hasn't been characteristic of the Tide (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference). The Gators (2-1, 1-1) cashed in on three of the turnovers with touchdowns for their only points, one on a fumble recovery and the other two on drives totaling 47 yards.
No. 4 Oklahoma thrives in test at West Virginia (Yahoo Sports)
Playing a long stretch of games away from home doesn't stir great concern for Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops and his players. The Sooners overcame their first deficit of the season to quiet a sellout crowd at West Virginia, and now fourth-ranked Oklahoma (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) will use a bye week to try to build on a solid start to the season. Oklahoma pulled away in the second half of a 45-33 win over the Mountaineers on Saturday night by slowing down West Virginia's up-tempo offense in the second half and letting the Sooners' 243-pound freshman running back Samaje Perine do most of the work.
Ball boys to court: Reinstate Boeheim slander suit (Yahoo Sports)
Two former Syracuse University ball boys urged the state's highest court Tuesday to reinstate their slander lawsuit against basketball head coach Jim Boeheim. Bobby Davis and Mike Lang claim Boeheim slandered them in 2011 by calling them liars out for money when they accused his longtime assistant coach Bernie Fine of molesting them as children. A judge dismissed the suit last year, ruling Boeheim's comments were not assertions of fact but opinions protected from defamation lawsuits. On Tuesday, the men's attorney Mariann Meier Wang argued before the Court of Appeals that Boeheim accused her clients of extortion.

In the course of a week, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk went from playing against some of his biggest heroes on the U.S. Mykhailiuk may be the most tantalizing enigma in college basketball this season.
