Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield seemingly inched closer to the 2017 Heisman Trophy on Saturday, as he threw for three touchdowns in the Sooners' 41-3 win over the Kansas Jayhawks at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kansas. Mayfield finished the game with 257 yards on 20-of-30 passing, and he was key in helping the No. 4 Sooners improve to 10-1 on the season.
The Ohio State Buckeyes unveiled all-white uniforms they will wear during Nov. 25's showdown against Michigan. Per Nike, the first-time design features a metallic silver pattern to "honor the Buckeyes' tradition of toughness and remind their rivals of their hard earned (and re-earned) nickname, the Silver Bullets." They will also don gray and red versions of LeBron James' Soldier XI cleats. The school also wore custom sneakers from the NBA star's Nike line against Oklahoma and Penn State.
As Florida searches for a replacement for former head football coach Jim McElwain, the program has begun doing research on noteworthy candidates, including Chip Kelly. According to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports, a "thorough vetting" has begun on Kelly, including calls to NFL executives as well as background on any NCAA issues at Oregon. Kelly last coached the San Francisco 49ers and was fired after a 2-14 season. This came after posting a 26-21 record in three years with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Calling it a night. Have to wake up, walk the dog to Dunkin Donuts in the morning before the Sunday shift begins. Good night, college football Twitter.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
