1 » The University of Florida athletic department has decided to beef up security for their team at the 2010 Sugar Bowl when the No. 5 Florida Gators take on the No. 3 Cincinnati Bearcats. Due to concerns about autograph hounds, agents and extra media attention, several additional officers and new security measures will be added to protect the team over the week they are visiting New Orleans, LA.

2 » A die-hard Gator fan, Chicago White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski proudly represents the Orange and Blue wherever he goes. His love for the team has even started a good-hearted rivalry with second baseman Gordon Beckham. This year, the competition between Pierzynski and Beckham crossed over from college football to fantasy football, where the teammates are meeting in the finals of their league.
