    A college football news roundup that includes an LSU player being reinstated to the team and Oregon holding a players-only meeting.


    The end of the MLB regular season is this weekend, which means that we are entering October and preparing for some major college football conference games to be decided on the field. Enough of the powerhouses playing East Central Southwestern State, now they have to play the real deal. In the meantime, Alabama quarterback Blake Barnett has decided to transfer, ACC coaches can’t rave enough about Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, and Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen should probably keep his mouth shut for a while. Here are some other newsworthy notes in the latest college football news roundup.

    Godchaux Reinstated – Now that charges for false imprisonment, domestic abuse battery and child endangerment have been dropped, LSU has reinstated defensive tackle Davon Godchaux to the team. He was indefinitely suspended earlier this week.

    Players Only – On the heels of two consecutive losses, including a stunner to Colorado this past Saturday, Oregon players decided to take it upon themselves to have a players-only meeting.

    “Those kind of things are almost always positive in the end, good in the end” head coach Mark Helfrich said. ”And like a lot of things, there are words, and then there are actions and commitments that come out of things.”

    Call Reversal – After the referees threw Penn State linebacker Brandon Smith out of the game for a targeting call in the loss to Michigan this past Saturday, the Big Ten has said that the referees should have reversed the call, and that Smith should have been able to stay in the game.

    “In this particular play, the defense was making a legitimate attempt to get the ball and, upon full review, the call of targeting should have been reversed by the replay official,” the Big Ten wrote.
