Heartwarming story of the day: ESPN dropped an incredible story on the life of running backs coach Deland McCullough. Do yourself a favor and read this.

Nick Saban: Last night Nick called and apologized to Maria Taylor for the way he responded to her question on the field after the game per Jim Miller. More on what transpired here.

Iowa State-South Dakota State:In a letter to Cyclones fans, Iowa State AD Jamie Pollard writes that "it does not appear" they will be able to reschedule last night's canceled game.

Week One... continued: North Carolina A&T's game at East Carolina was washed out yesterday. They will play today at 3:30ET (ESPN3) and all eyes will be on Mark Richt vs Coach O tonight as Miami & LSU play in Jerry World at 6:30CT on ABC.

Ole Miss: Thanks to a 47-27 win over Texas Tech, Matt Luke triggered a $150,000 bonus clause for any regular season non-conference win over a Power 5 opponent.

#Nuggets: Auburn, Notre Dame and Boise State make statement wins, Nick Saban gets feisty with ESPN and... oh, Texas.

Minnesota Vikings: Cornerback Terence Newman retired from playing and immediately joined the Vikes' coaching staff in an undisclosed role, the team has announced.
