LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Les Miles walked confidently to the podium and slipped on a familiar white hat.

This one had "KU" embroidered across the front.

The quirky and energetic coach who led LSU to the 2007 national title, after building a consistent winner at Oklahoma State, is back in the Big 12. His task this time is to turn around a long-suffering program at Kansas, where years of losing have left fan apathy at historically high levels.


Buffs fire MacIntyre amid 6-game skid

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Two years after he was named AP coach of the year, Mike MacIntyre's run at Colorado ended Sunday when he was fired amid a six-game skid in his sixth season.

"It was a difficult decision because Mike is a knowledgeable coach and he has really elevated this football team since 2013," athletic director Rick George said after asking quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper to serve as interim head coach for Colorado's final game next weekend.


Army ranked for first time since 1996

Army is ranked for the first time since 1996, moving into The Associated Press college football poll at No. 23 on Sunday as it begins preparations to face rival Navy.

The Black Knights (9-2) have been edging toward the Top 25 in recent weeks, and they finally broke through. The rest of the rankings were mostly unchanged after a weekend with few big games or surprising results.


Charlotte fires founding coach Lambert

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Charlotte will not retain Brad Lambert after this season, moving on from the only football coach the school has had.

Athletic director Mike Hill announced Sunday that Lambert would coach the team's final game against Florida Atlantic on Saturday, but a search for a new coach will begin immediately.


Ohio State, Michigan set for The Game

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Maybe both teams already were looking ahead to The Game.

Whatever it was, Michigan and Ohio State struggled with middling Big Ten teams Saturday. Instead of easy tuneups, the games against 5-5 teams nearly became nightmare traps.


Browning looking to beat WSU 4 times

SEATTLE (AP) Jake Browning has been the quarterback for more victories than any other player in Pac-12 Conference history.

He's rewritten the record book for No. 16 Washington and despite the undue criticism that has come his way by the fan base at times through his career, will long be regarded as one of the great quarterbacks to wear the Huskies' purple and gold.


Hokies, Marshall agree to possible game

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Virginia Tech and Marshall have agreed to play on Dec. 1 if the Hokies need an additional victory to become bowl eligible.

The schools made the announcement Sunday, saying the game will take place only if Virginia Tech (4-6) beats Virginia on Friday. It would be played at Lane Stadium at noon.


Texas State fires coach Withers

SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) Texas State has fired coach Everett Withers after he guided the Bobcats to just seven victories in three seasons.

The Bobcats fell to 3-8 on Saturday with a 12-7 loss to Troy. They were 2-10 in each of Withers' first two seasons at the Sun Belt Conference school that has been playing at the FBS level since 2012.


No. 2 Clemson rips Duke after slow start

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson finished perfect in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a less than perfect performance that still ended with another blowout.

The No. 2 Tigers (11-0, 8-0, No. 2 CFP) beat Duke 35-6 on Saturday night, rebounding to win their six straight league game by at least 20 points after falling behind 6-0 and getting just one first down on their first three drives.


No. 3 ND routs Orange at Yankee Stadium

NEW YORK (AP) The band was an Aaron Judge moon shot away from the field, way up in the right-field bleachers of Yankee Stadium.

Still, the Fighting Irish lined up in the end zone/outfield and sang the alma mater - just as they would have at Notre Dame Stadium - after dispatching No. 12 Syracuse and putting themselves a step away from the College Football Playoff.
