Justin Worley loves playing with Tennessee's talented group of newcomers. They helped Worley to a successful return from thumb surgery on Sunday night. Worley threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns, and the Volunteers beat Utah State 38-7 in a game matching two quarterbacks returning from injuries. Worley completed his first 13 passes of the second half in his first appearance since missing Tennessee's final four games last season.

Before the 10th-ranked Bears beat SMU 45-0 in their first game at McLane Stadium on Sunday night, a 9 1/2-foot bronze statue of Robert Griffin III was unveiled. The statue of Baylor's only Heisman Trophy winner is in a plaza between the stadium and the Brazos River, where some fans arrived by boat for the game - and others dived in for relief from temperatures in the mid-90s. ''When you come to Waco, you're going to see the statue of Judge Baylor, Coach (Grant) Teaff and Robert Griffin III.'' Griffin won the Heisman Trophy in 2011, the same season Baylor won 10 games for the first time since its outright 1980 Southwest Conference title.

Bryce Petty took a bruising shot to his lower back on No. 10 Baylor's first offensive drive in its new riverfront stadium. Petty still managed to have a big impact in the impressive debut of McLane Stadium, accounting for three touchdowns in a 45-0 victory over SMU on Sunday night. SMU's three quarterbacks were sacked a combined eight times. The Mustangs (0-1) were held to 67 total yards, their fewest since coach June Jones took over in 2008, and shut out for the second time in their last three games.

The NCAA has notified the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that it intends to appeal a judge's ruling in the Ed O'Bannon case that it violated antitrust laws. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled Aug. 8 that the NCAA broke the law by restricting schools from providing money beyond current scholarship limits to athletes. A formal appeal has not yet been submitted, but NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy issued a statement Thursday.
