Cody Kessler left today’s Browns game with a possible concussion and was replaced by former Stanford QB Kevin Hogan. And the Browns fell to 0-7.
Ed Orgeron is 3-0 as LSU’s interim coach. And maybe he should be given who the Tigers played. But during Steve Sarkisian’s introductory press conference at USC, I remember asking Pat Haden about bypassing Orgeron.
“I hope he proves me wrong,” Haden said.
I would say that much is evident after three games.
This was a pretty big road victory for Colorado, which beat Stanford, 10-5. USC holds a tiebreaker over Colorado based on its 21-17 victory. But the Buffaloes currently have one less loss. Obviously, still a lot of season left. But this again lessens the alibis from some about why USC lost to Stanford.
Clay Helton must feel pretty good watching Cal and Oregon (USC’s next 2 opponents) fail to stop each other tonight. The over/under was 89, the highest figure in college football history according to betting experts. And they scored 84 in regulation.
UPDATED: Cal wins, 52-49, in double overtime.

Former USC coach Kevin O’Neill, who was replaced by Andy Enfield, probably wanted this segment to end as soon as possible.
Here’s a story on freshman defensive end Oluwole Betiku’s journey from Nigeria to USC.
“Take one look at him and his monstrous 6-foot-4, 260-pound frame, listen to how he willed his way from Nigeria to Los Angeles in search of a better life, and you’ll find yourself dreaming up a bright future for the supersized defensive end and his mega-watt smile — a possibility that, from the dirt streets of Lagos, had seemed so distant and unattainable.”
