COLLEGE FOOTBALL QB REPORT
Kansas QB Jason Bean (Stats) will start Saturday at Oklahoma State with Jalon Daniels (Stats) continuing to deal with a back injury, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel and Action Network’s Brett McMurphy. Daniels has been dealing with this injury since fall camp and is expected to miss his third consecutive game. If he plays less than two games the rest of the way, Daniels could use this as a redshirt season.
Nebraska head coach Matt Rhule said QB Jeff Sims’ (Stats) ankle is 100% heading into the bye week, but Heinrich Haarberg (Stats) will continue to start. Haarberg started the last four games since Sims exited the loss to Colorado with an ankle injury. Expect him to be the guy again when the Cornhuskers host Northwestern coming out of the bye with Sims as the backup moving forward.
Tennessee is expected to host in-state, 2025 4-star QB George MacIntyre for Saturday’s game vs. Texas A&M, according to On3’s Sam Spiegelman. Earlier this week, MacIntyre released a top 10 that included the Vols, in addition to Alabama, Auburn, FIU, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Oregon and UCLA. Earlier this week, MacIntyre visited FIU where his uncle Mike MacIntyre is the head coach.
DEPTH CHART & INJURY REPORT
Virginia Tech head coach Brent Pry said QB Kyron Drones (Stats) is the guy moving forward heading into Saturday vs. Wake Forest. Grant Wells (Stats) has been unavailable the last four games with an ankle injury, but he appears to have lost his starting spot. He looked better in practice this week but is clearly not 100%, according to Tech Sideline’s Andy Bitter.
