College football news roundup: Texas A&M working on game with ASU; Nick Marshall out for Auburn

Chris Graythen

All of Friday's noteworthy college football news in one spot.

With a heavy slate of conference games set for Saturday, the news was a bit light on Friday as teams were busy traveling. Let's jump right into the headlines.

Texas A&M, Arizona State reportedly working on 2015 game

The Aggies and Sun Devils want to play at Reliant Stadium in Houston in a few years. While neither team has committed to playing in 2015, it's not tough to see why there would be so much interest. Both schools heavily rely on the state of Texas for recruiting, and given their proximity to Houston, the game would surely sell out rather quickly.

Nick Marshall out for Auburn; Jeremy Johnson to start

Auburn's starting quarterback, Nick Marshall, is not 100 percent and will not play this weekend against Western Carolina. Marshall appeared to hurt his knee while stumbling out of bounds against Ole Miss last weekend, though he returned to the game with a noticeable limp.

Jeremy Johnson, who most believe is the Tigers' quarterback of the future, will make the start.

Michigan dropped serious cash for "Go Blue" flyover

On Sept. 14, a plane flew over Spartans Stadium and wrote "GO BLUE" in huge letters. Michigan State was playing Youngstown State.

On Friday, it was discovered the University of Michigan paid $6,700 for the plane to leave the message. Don't ever leave us, college football rivalries.
