College football news: Don Treadwell fired by Miami (Ohio), Georgia depleted by injuries

Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Quite a few top-25 teams had star players go down with season-ending injuries this weekend.

Week 6 of the college football season is in the books and there were no shortage of headlines on Sunday. Let's jump right in as the first unveiling of the BCS standings draws closer.

Season-ending injuries everywhere

Georgia: The Bulldogs won the battle on Saturday, but they might've lost the war. On Sunday, head coach Mark Richt confirmed running back Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley are out for the season with torn ACLs. Wide receiver Michael Bennett also left the game early with a knee injury. The extent of the damage is unknown, and he will have his knee scoped to determine what the next course of treatment is. Punter Collin Barber also suffered a concussion after having a kick blocked. His status for next week is unclear.

Notre Dame: While the Irish knocked off Arizona State in thrilling fashion, they lost linebacker Jarrett Grace for the reminder of the season with a broken fibula. Grace was one of Notre Dame's leading tacklers this season and really improved over the offseason after primarily playing on the special teams unit last year.

Oklahoma: The Sooners lost one of their defensive captains over the weekend as senior linebacker Corey Nelson partially tore his pectoral muscle. He is scheduled to undergo surgery this week. Nelson, a senior, is a multi-year starter with more than 40 games under his belt.

Arkansas: Starting cornerback Will Hines was lost for the season with a broken arm on Saturday as the Razorbacks fell to Florida. The loss of Hines is a serious blow to Arkansas secondary, especially with so little depth on the roster already.

Steve Sarkisian accuses Stanford of faking injuries

The Washington Huskies suffered a tough loss to No. 5 Stanford on Friday night. UW head coach Steve Sarkisian, who's never shied away from speaking his mind with the media, made headlines when he accused the Cardinal of faking injuries.

"Their defensive-line coach (ex-UW assistant Randy Hart) was telling them to sit down," Sarkisian told KJR afterward. "I guess that's how we play here at Stanford, so we'll have to prepare for that next time. At some point, we'll get repaid for it. That never serves a purpose for us, and we'll never do that."

Miami (Ohio) fires their head coach

Don Treadwell was relieved of his coaching duties on Sunday after a dreadful 0-5 start to the season. Since taking over the job in 2011, Treadwell led the RedHawks to just an 8-21 record. Offensive coordinator John Klacik was also fired, and assistant Mike Bath has been named the interim head coach.

College GameDay is headed to...

Seattle! With the Oregon Ducks and Washington Huskies set to play their annual rivalry game, the College GameDay crew will be in attendance at newly-renovated Husky Stadium. UW holds the all-time series lead, but the Ducks have owned the Pacific Northwest in recent years with nine wins in a row. Keith Price and Co. showed over the weekend that they can hang with top-five teams, and now they'll have a rowdy home crowd on their side.

Top 25 polls released

There was some shifting around towards the top of this week's AP Poll and Coaches Poll. Florida State rose to No. 6 after knocking off Maryland in convincing fashion, while Georgia dropped a spot to No. 7 after a narrow win over Tennessee. Northern Illinois, Virginia Tech and Missouri all gained spots in the AP Poll for the first time after picking up wins over the weekend.
