Where QB battles stand heading into Week 1

Could Jalen Hurts get the first snap for Bama? Who will start for Clemson, Texas and several others? We update the QB choices still to be decided.

Cam Sims opened the Redskins' eyes in the spring and has continued doing so in training camp. They still consider him a raw receiver, but one who is clearly talented. He caught three passes for 57 yards tonight and had a touchdown catch nullified by penalty. But don't expect him to say Alabama coach Nick Saban made a mistake by not throwing to him more. “He never makes no mistakes,” Sims said. “I got two rings. He's not making no mistakes. I went to the college playoffs four years in a row. No, he ain't making no mistakes. He's doing something right.”

The Big 12 is in a tough spot before a single snap has been played: it has only a 29% chance to put a team in the Playoff and a 5% chance to have one of its teams win the national title.
