Morning Six Pack: September 12, 2012

NAIA denies eligibility for Ray Ray Armstrong

Safety had hoped to resume play at Faulkner (Ala.) after being dismissed from Miami (Fla.)

Hogs in trouble if they can't run on Tide, CBS' Gary Danielson says

Pass protection also a concern for Arkansas as it prepares for a visit from top-ranked Alabama.

Houston to be down two starting lineman vs. UCLA

The juggernaut that is the 2012 UCLA Bruins (wait… what?) could have an easier row to hoe as it looks this weekend to start a season 3-0 for the first time since 2009.

Don’t ask, don’t tell

A concussion kept Jamie Kuntz from suiting up for his first college football game. A kiss from his much-older boyfriend at that game led the freshman linebacker to be kicked off the team, he said.

PSU coach O'Brien stands by Ficken as his kicker

Penn State is sticking with kicker Sam Ficken. The sophomore saw an extra-point attempt blocked and missed four kicks in last week's 17-16 loss at Virginia, including the potential game-winner from 42 yards in a heavy drizzle.

Quotable:

Moseley, who threw for 800 yards in six starts last season, battled shoulder tendinitis throughout preseason camp but said before the season opener that he believed he'd be ready if he was needed. Asked about it Saturday, Chizik indicated that Moseley's shoulder was well enough for him to play.

But he was needed on Saturday. The Tigers' offense was stuck in idle in Starkville and in desperate need of a spark.

If Moseley's shoulder isn't right, there's not much good that could have come from playing him. If it isn't right soon, Auburn has precious few options in trying to fix its offense.
