Planned features

  • Playing for Ella – For the past 18 months, Clemson has played all-American defensive tackle Bryan Bresee for his younger sister Ella – a 15-year-old who was faced with a devastating diagnosis of brain cancer. Ella fought with the same passion she showed in every challenge that came her way. Last weekend, just days after Ella’s funeral, Bresee returned to the field and continued to honor his sister as best he could. (Reporter: Jen Lada)
  • We’re not Kansas anymore—Kansas has been wandering aimlessly through the college football desert for years…decades. Picked last in the Big 12 (again) the Jayhawks and their sophomore coach surprise everyone — a campus, a city, a nation — except themselves. (Reporter: Gene Wojciechowski — a native of Salina, Kansas)
  • You’ve got the juice – He’s got his own camera on game day, a Twitter account with over 25,000 followers, and a growing presence on the Ole Miss campus. Meet the unofficial ambassador of Ole Miss football, Juice Kiffin, head coach Lane Kiffin’s six-month-old golden English lab.
