College Football News Roundup – October 14

A college football news roundup that includes more injuries for the USC Trojans and a great story of redemption for Alabama’s Eddie Jackson.

It’s been another long week waiting for college football (especially with last night’s game having been rescheduled), but now it is Friday and we are so close to that magical day of Saturday. In college football news, Florida and LSU have rescheduled their matchup, though some Gators weren’t happy about how it went down, Charlie Strong hasn’t forgotten how to coach, and Urban Meyer is close to reaching a record. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

More Pain For USC – After suffering an ankle injury against Colorado, USC running back Justin Davis will be out for the matchup against Arizona this Saturday. Davis leads the Trojans with 476 rushing yards.

The Redemption For Jackson – Think you know Alabama defensive star Eddie Jackson? Think again. In this piece, the story is told of how Jackson was ineligible to play in high school with a 1.0 GPA and has rebounded to become the star for the Crimson Tide.

More Stuff From Penn State Kicker – Opening up about an eating disorder he has dealt with, Penn State kicker Joey Julius appeared in a TV interview in which he talked about his struggle.

“I would have to lay down to the point where I was so sick I couldn’t move and just lay there,” Julius said. “There were some times I would cry.”

He’s now laying down the hits on the field. Opponents beware.
