Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) -- With most of the top teams merely tuning up, there is little movement in The Associated Press college football poll this week.

Sports Illustrated alleges payments to players at OSU while Miles was coach
Tuesday, 10 September 2013 11:01
In a long, detailed and stinging report, Sports Illustrated chronicled what they say were multiple cases of players at Oklahoma State University receiving 'cash handshakes' and payments in envelopes from boosters during a decade or so, including years when Les Miles was head coach. The report never alleges that Miles had knowledge of any wrongdoing, but it does say that boosters were given more access to players, including in locker rooms on team flights and…

Saturday, 07 September 2013 23:20
Brett Martel / Associated Press BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Apparently, new LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is doing something right. Zach Mettenberger's single-game school record five touchdown passes against UAB attested to that. Three of Mettenberger's touchdowns went to Odell Beckham Jr., who also returned a missed field goal 100 yards for a score, and the ninth-ranked Tigers overwhelmed UAB 56-17 on Saturday night. Even Jeremy Hill got involved for LSU (2-0) when coach Les…
