Phil Stukenborg, Commercial Appeal: Memphis will play its game Tuesday night against Marshall despite the shooting death of Tiger defensive lineman Taylor Bradford.

Robbie Neiswanger and Alex Abrams, Springdale Morning News: Arkansas running back Darren McFadden told students who want Houston Nutt fired to back off. Thanks to Pig Kahuna.

Eric Lacy, Detroit News: Michigan quarterback Chad Henne confirmed that his right knee injury suffered in the Oregon game involved a ligament tear.

Howard Herman, Berkshire Eagle: Massachusetts is conducting another study to determine if its football team, which just lost to Boston College, 24-14, should move from Division I-AA to the Division I-A.

Jay Hinton, Deseret Morning News: Utah State coach Brent Guy has the worst winning percentage of any Aggie football coach with the same tenure and is sporting the longest losing streak in team history, but he has the support of athletic director Randy Spetman.

Dan Hinxman, Reno Gazette-Journal: The New Mexico Bowl is still 81 days away, but a berth to the game could be on the line when Fresno State plays Nevada.

Foxxy Sports: Fair, balanced and hot. Lauren tells USC fans to shut up and congratulates Notre Dame fans.
