In the latest edition of College Football Beefs, UAB coach Trent Dilfer found himself in the spotlight after blowing up on the sidelines during a game against Tulane. Dilfer’s outburst was captured on camera, showing him visibly angry at his assistants. This incident comes after Dilfer gained attention earlier this year for grabbing one of his athletes at Lipscomb Academy. Dilfer’s behavior has raised concerns about his leadership and put the UAB program in a negative light.

After a dominant win against Northwestern, Franklin mentioned that he is using the bye week to self-scout and get a head start on preparing for Ryan Day’s team. Penn State has beaten Ohio State just once during Franklin’s tenure, and this game presents a significant opportunity for the Nittany Lions to make their mark and potentially reach the College Football Playoff.

If Missouri continues to perform well and emerges as an SEC contender, Burden’s production will be hard to ignore in the Heisman conversation.
