At one point this season, Northwestern was No. 16 in the nation. Then the Wildcats lost to Ohio State on Oct. 5, squandering a 10-point lead in the third quarter, and everything went south from there. Northwestern has lost six straight in nearly every imaginable fashion (a hail mary against Nebraska, a hail mary field goal by Michigan that forced overtime in the Wolverines’ eventual win last weekend). And at one point, 13 of the team’s top performers were either out with or limited by injuries, including running back Venric Mark and leading receiver Tony Jones. Now, Northwestern hosts Michigan State, which needs one win over its last two games to clinch the Big Ten Legends Division title.

In the run-up to LSU’s game against Texas A&M, Tigers wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. played the role of Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel in practice. His impersonation was so good that some Tigers players this week said Beckham — who’s third in the SEC in receiving yards — should get some snaps at quarterback on Saturday. LSU Coach Les Miles agrees. Maybe. “Um . . . I certainly wouldn’t want to spill a piece of strategy, but . . . I’m not certain,” he told the Baton Rouge Advocate this week.

Arizona State can clinch the Pacific-12 South Division title with a win over UCLA. To do so, the Sun Devils will need to stop Bruins freshman Myles Jack, who started the season as a linebacker (his interception clinched UCLA’s win over Utah on Oct. 3) but, because of a string of injuries, has since been moved to running back, where he’s thrived. Jack has 179 yards and five touchdowns over the past two games, four of the scores coming last week against Washington. And it’s not like the Bruins are doing anything fancy with him. “I really have just one play,” Jack told the Los Angeles Times this week. “You see me go into the game, I ask [quarterback Brett Hundley] where I go and Brett says, ‘Myles, go right’ and I go, ‘OK.’ ”
