Lot of good Charlie Weis' secrecy with his QB situation did for the Irish against Georgia Tech: They put only three points on the board and couldn't get effective play out of any of their top three passers: starter Demetrius Jones (two fumbles) and backups Evan Sharpley (sacked seven times) and Jimmy Clausen. On Tuesday, Weis announced Clausen would start against Penn State. The coach indicated that Clausen, the mega-recruit who was thought to still be recovering from elbow surgery, is considered to be at 100 percent after completing 4-of-6 passes in relief work against the Yellow Jackets.

Bring up the NCAA's leaderboard for all-purpose yardage after Week 1 and you'll see neither Arkansas' Darren McFadden nor West Virginia's Steve Slaton nor any preseason Heisman candidate, for that matter, at the top. The No. 1 back is the Cougars Anthony Aldridge, who gained 325 yards (205 rushing, 88 receiving, 32 on kickoff returns) in a loss to Oregon. The reason Aldridge wasn't hailed as a breakout star: He also coughed up the ball twice early in the game, which helped the Ducks run away with a 48-27 victory.

It was a teary-eyed evening in Bloomington for the Hoosiers' 55-7 win over Indiana State, as the pregame festivities honored departed coach Terry Hoeppner, who passed away as a result of brain cancer in June. The IU crowd chanted "Terr-y Hoepp-ner" as his family stood at midfield, and the school played a tribute to their former coach on the scoreboard. Star wideout James Hardy honored "Hep" on the field, catching three passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns.
