Tennessee's leading rusher (500 yards, five touchdowns) has missed the past two games with a bad ankle.

RB Adonis Ameen-Moore, Syracuse, (lower body injury)
Next game: at Cincinnati, noon ET (Big East Network)
The Orange have two able-bodied backs in Prince-Tyson Gulley and Jerome Smith, but Moore is integral to Syracuse's tank offense, which is employed on the goal line. Moore isn't a definite scratch for Saturday at Cincinnati, but there are reports that indicate he will not play. He didn't practice on Wednesday after missing last week's game against South Florida. The Orange will also likely be without defensive tackle Jay Bromley, who's one of the best run-stoppers along the defensive line. He sustained a lower body injury in practice on Tuesday, and if he can't go, it will snap a string of 20 consecutive starts for the junior.
Next game: vs. Temple, Saturday, noon ET (ABC)
Mauldin, who won Big East defensive player of the week honors two weeks ago, will be out after injuring his knee against Cincinnati last Saturday.

Next game: at South Florida, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

Rowe, a true freshman, is the fourth Terrapins QB out for the season after he tore his ACL in last Saturday's loss to Boston College. It was Rowe's first collegiate start.

LB Kiko Alonso, Oregon, (wrist)
Next game: at No. 17 USC, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (FOX)

Together the duo has 75 tackles on the year.
OT Aundrey Walker, USC, (neck)
Next game: vs. No. 4 Oregon, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (FOX)
