#LSU SS Grant Delpit down and injured. He came downhill on the slant and took a physical shot to the upper body from the Utah State WR.— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) October 5, 2019Delpit back in the locker room; now in concussion protocol. https://t.co/ql8tBRr0tx— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) October 5, 2019Delpit, a junior, is considered to be one of the best safeties in the entire country. He’s a legit NFL prospect who should have a bright future at the next level.On the season, he’s made 16 tackles and recovered one fumble.It wouldn’t be surprising to see LSU use caution with Delpit for the remainder of the game. The Tigers have Florida next week.Update: Delpit is back on the field. One report suggests he bit his lip hard enough to warrant heading to the locker room. Regardless, it’s great to see his injury wasn’t too serious.Per #LSU radio, Grant Delpit bit his lip. Sounds like he’ll be back.— Scott Rabalais (@RabalaisAdv) October 5, 2019Grant Delpit back on the field. Good to see.— Cody Worsham (@CodyWorsham) October 5, 2019We’ll keep you updated.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – DECEMBER 29: Head coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines looks on in the first quarter against the Florida Gators during the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on December 29, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images)On paper, Michigan-Iowa was one of the more intriguing games on the noon slate. In reality, it wound up being the most boring possible Big Ten slugfest. Honestly, that may be exactly how Jim Harbaugh likes it, though.The No. 10 Wolverines outlasted the No. 14 Hawkeyes in Ann Arbor, 10-3.If you liked punting, this was your game. Neither team cracked 270 yards of offense, with Michigan outgaining Iowa 267-261.That is a combined 528 offensive yards, compared to 633 yards on 15 punts by Iowa’s Michael Sleep-Dalton and Michigan’s Will Hart. The last play of Iowa’s final drive, thankfully, did bring some excitement, if only for a moment. Iowa quarterback Nate Stanley was flushed way back by Michigan’s tenacious pass rush, but the right-handed quarterback somehow found Tyler Goodson on a dump-off with a lefty throw. Goodson gained back a bunch of the yardage that Stanley had surrendered, and looked like he had some room on the 4th & 10.Instead, he was tripped up by a Michigan defender on a great effort, and taken down for what ended up being a long one-yard loss, giving Michigan possession.Don’t tell Jim Harbaugh that this game was boring. That play, which ended right in front of him, had him fired up.HARBAUGH LYFE pic.twitter.com/gE8pJkqc9O— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) October 5, 2019It was ugly, but Michigan picked up a much-needed win against a ranked opponent. Still, I doubt it is going to make many feel better about Michigan football. If anything, it makes Wisconsin look like an even stronger favorite to come out of the Big Ten West than it already did.Harbaugh and the Wolverines move to 4-1, with a trip to Illinois next week.
