- Colorado's president wants success everywhere, including football. The Buffaloes are moving up in the recruiting rankings.

- A moving tribute to former Oregon State defensive lineman Fred Thompson, who tragically died last week.
- Might Stanford play Notre Dame in China? Who replaces Andrew Luck?
