Arizona State: Offensive coordinator Billy Napier is back with the team today after attending the funeral of his father yesterday. Please continue to keep coach Napier and his family in your prayers during this difficult time.

Purdue: Very sad to pass along news that former Boilermaker head coach Joe Tiller, the winningest head coach in program history, passed away this morning. He was 74 years old. Tiller led the program from 1997-08 going 87-62, including a share of the Big Ten title and appearance in the Rose Bowl in 2000, and prior to that built the Wyoming program for six seasons, going 10-2 in 1996. Please join us in praying for his family and those close to him.

Auburn: Late last night, a report form stated that Auburn was working towards ending athletic director Jay Jacobs' tenure as athletic director, noting that the "transition was expected to take place after the current football season, but recent scandals involving the school's softball and men's basketball programs have accelerated the process" University president Steven Leath issued a statement shortly thereafter saying that the report is "inaccurate," via Auburn's 247 site.
