AP Top 25 Takeaways: Veteran QBs Clifford, Nix deliver big

Being a good, but definitely not great, quarterback can be a rough ride in college football, especially when fans see only a ceiling they wish was higher. This is the life that Penn State’s Sean Clifford and Oregon’s Bo Nix have led. On Saturday, the veteran quarterbacks proved their worth. Clifford led the 22nd-ranked Nittany Lions to one of their most impressive nonconference victories in years, a 41-12 win at Auburn. Nix threw for two touchdowns and ran for three more to lead the No. 25 Ducks to a 41-20 victory over No. 12 BYU. Meanwhile, now that Nebraska has moved on from Scott Frost, the question is who’s the next coach to be fired.
