How Tua Tagovailoa's ankle injury affects Alabama, LSU and the college football landscape
We look at the six potential ripple effects of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's ankle injury, ranging from this week to the College Football Playoff.

The highlights, though, were scarce for Wofford, which has lost its last 16 games to Power Five opponents.
Clemson has opened with nine straight wins for the fourth time in five seasons. It finished with a season-best 702 yards, the fourth time gaining 600 yards or more this year — a first in school history.
Wofford: The Terriers never had a chance against the highest-ranked FBS opponent they've ever played. Still, Wofford had won five straight on the season and is competing for a third consecutive Southern Conference title and fourth straight NCAA playoff appearance. The $360,000 the school received from Clemson will also help its athletic department bottom line.

Lawrence and Etienne have powered the offense in that stretch after Clemson's early-season scare — a 21-20 victory at North Carolina on Sept. 28. And while the Tigers' scheduled has taken some hits from critics, there's little doubt the defending national champions will be among the top four team when the first College Football Playoff rankings are released Tuesday.
