Morning Six Pack: September 28, 2012 Game Day Eve! Get your tail(gate) in order and check out these six college football stories from around the country.

LOL Stanford

Washington struggled for most of the night on offense, but played great defense and the offense came through with some huge plays in the second half to knock off eighth-ranked Stanford 17-13.

McCarron grows into one of the nation’s best

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has compiled some impressive statistics this season.

Stoops says No. 16 Sooners aren't slipping

If the signs seem to show Oklahoma falling from the ranks of the national elite, Bob Stoops isn't buying it.

Two starting Wolfpack linemen out for Miami game

Sitting at 3-1 on the season, North Carolina State will be down an additional starting offensive lineman as it opens ACC play Saturday.

Ranking The Red Wolves: Shoring Up Special Teams A Must Against Hilltoppers

There has been little margin of error in recent meetings between Western Kentucky and Arkansas State. Only nine points separate the two schools in their previous three meetings.


In the long run, Dye’s support won’t count for all that much. As admirable as Auburn’s effort against LSU was, the loss dropped Chizik’s record against the Tigers to 1-3. It’ll take a massive upset for him to avoid falling to 1-3 against Georgia and Alabama, too, and not even Dye may be able to save him this year if he falls to 1-3 against Arkansas.

But, by speaking up for Chizik, isn’t Dye doing what family members are supposed to do? As Chizik’s strongest supporter from the start outside of AD Jay Jacobs, isn’t it more important than ever for Dye to stand by his man?

I know some Auburn people would prefer that Dye be seen and not heard in public and not be seen or heard at all in the athletic department, but that’s another debate for another day.
