The presentation of the 2017 Golden Spikes Award will take place tonight at 7 on ESPN2. If Brendan McKay wins, then Louisville will become the first program ever to produce the Heisman and Golden Spikes winners from the same season.
Congrats to Louisville's Drew Ellis on being named the ACC baseball Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
College Football News has released its preseason ACC accolades. Included is an Offensive Player of the Year nod to noted college football performer Lamar Jackson.
2017 CFN Preseason ACC Offensive Player of the Year
QB Lamar Jackson, Jr. Louisville
Of course several new ACC offensive playmakers will emerge this season, but with the loss of UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky, FSU RB Dalvin Cook, and Deshaun Watson - along with a whole slew of other Clemson stars - there aren't a lot of obvious threats to to push the reigning Heisman winner out of the league's top offensive spot.
So what can Jackson do as an encore? He could lead Louisville to the ACC title, beat Clemson this time around, and keep the amazing pace set at the start of the season through the entire year, but as long as he does that again, it'll be up to the rest of the team to do its part. It'll be tough behind a rebuilding line, but he'll make everyone around him better - again.
Jackson is also No. 1 in the site's ranking of the league's 30 best players, as well as a member of CFN's preseason All-ACC team. Geron Christian, Jaire Alexander and Mason King join Jackson on that team.
Louisville checked in at No. 26 in the final Director's Cup Standings. Stanford is first for like the 972nd year in a row.
Chris Jones is staying positive.

I'm not sure if this video of Chilean doctors stopping mid-surgery to watch Chile score the go-ahead goal against Portugal on the Confed Cup is real, but if it is, it's sort of terrifying. And awesome. Awesomely terrifying.
Another cover for Lamar. This time it's Phil Steele.
You've probably seen or heard about the umpire who saved a woman's life on a Pittsburgh bridge Wednesday night. The full story is incredible.
