- Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman checks in on West Virginia and its road to its new territory in the Big 12.
- SI.com's Stewart Mandel sorts college football into tiers by team.
- Some Oklahoma State players took time out to visit a children's hospital this week, reports R.J. Young of The Oklahoman. Here's a photo gallery.
