Several former Green Bay Packers players and coaches are now coaching in the college ranks. Here's a brief preview as Week 4 of the college season gets underway...
- Former Packers head coach Mike Sherman, with former offensive coordinator Tom Rossley as quarterbacks coach, lead Texas A&M who get a home game today against Oklahoma State. Both teams are undefeated and ranked in the top ten in the nation. The winner will stay in the national championship hunt while the loser is, for all intents and purposes, out of the chase. The game starts at 2:30 p.m. Central time and will be televised nationally on either ABC or ESPN2 depending on where you live.
- Former wide receivers coach James Franklin continues to do a masterful job at Vanderbilt, who has the Commodores at 3-0 to open the season, a rare occurrence in Nashville. Today he has a tough road date at South Carolina. The game starts at 6:00 p.m. Central time and will air on ESPN2.
- Former tight ends coach Bo Pelini has Nebraska undefeated at 3-0 in their first season as a member of the Big Ten, though the Cornhuskers haven't looked dominant so far. Today they take on a surprisingly 3-0 Wyoming team in hostile territory. The game starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be on Versus.
- With former linebacker Mark D'Onofrio as defensive coordinator and former defensive line coach Jethro Franklin manning the same role at Miami, they're coming off a big win over Ohio State last weekend, holding the Buckeyes to six total points. They'll look for a repeat performance today as they host undefeated Kansas State at 2:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
- Former running back Noah Herron is a graduate assistant at Indiana where they're having a rough start to the season at 1-2. This evening they take on North Texas on the road. The game starts at 6:00 p.m. and can be seen online on ESPN3.
- With former linebacker John Anderson as an assistant coach, Carroll University in Waukesha, Wis. (2-1) hosts Ripon at 5 p.m.
