GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Quarterback Kyle Trask has waited nearly seven years between starts at Florida. But now he's finally getting his shot. Trask will make his first collegiate start and first since his freshman year in high school when the ninth-ranked Gators host Tennessee on Saturday.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A college football game that has been eagerly awaited ever since it was announced five summers ago is finally here. No. 3 Georgia is prepping to host No. 7 Notre Dame, which will be playing between the hedges for the first time. It's only the third meeting ever between the storied programs – and it could have ramifications all the way to the College Football Playoff.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU coach Ed Orgeron says safety Todd Harris has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2019 season because of an injury during the fourth-ranked Tigers' 65-14 victory over Northwestern State. Harris had ice wrapped around his right knee when he left Saturday night's game in Tiger Stadium. Orgeron says defensive linemen Rashard Lawrence and Glen Logan won't be ready to return at Vanderbilt this Saturday after also sitting out last weekend.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama defensive end LaBryan Ray will be sidelined indefinitely with a foot injury. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban says Ray is undergoing more testing and it's "undetermined how long" he'll be out. That could mean the Tide starts four freshman defenders against Southern Miss.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Brian Kelly sensed his No. 7 Notre Dame football team had a little extra bounce in its step Sunday morning and it wasn't because of its 66-14 victory over New Mexico 16 hours before. Playing a nationally televised game this Saturday night at No. 3 Georgia will do that for you. The game could play a big factor in determining the College Football Playoff field.

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi State starting quarterback Tommy Stevens' status for its Southeastern Conference opener against Kentucky remains unclear after a shoulder injury knocked him out of each of the Bulldogs' last two games. Bulldogs coach Joe Moorhead describes Stevens' situation as "day to day." Freshman Garrett Shrader has stepped in after the shoulder caused Stevens to make early exits.
