The University of Washington confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday night that it is looking into recruiting allegations against an assistant football following a report in the Los Angeles Times. The Times said Wednesday on its website that Washington and Southern California, which recently hired head coach Steve Sarkisian away from Washington, are investigating whether Huskies defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi violated NCAA rules by paying for private tutoring and online classes for a recruit. The newspaper said the allegations involve Andrew Basham, a former defensive lineman and shot putter at Lynnwood High School in Washington.

No. 2 Auburn aiming to defy odds 1 more time (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: December 18, 2013, 4:27 pm]
The Auburn Tigers were slim favorites over Georgia and double-digit underdogs against Alabama. Then, a common assumption was that a hangover from that dramatic Iron Bowl victory would surely linger into the Southeastern Conference championship game against Missouri. Now, No. 1 Florida State is an 8 1/2-point favorite to beat the second-ranked Tigers and claim the BCS title on Jan. 6 in Pasadena, Calif. The refrain feels sort of familiar to Auburn defensive end Dee Ford, who said the Tigers will be ready anyway. I think any team can play in the national championship that's a good caliber team.

Fight Hunger Bowl keeps cause after losing sponsor (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: December 18, 2013, 12:41 pm]
The Fight Hunger Bowl is keeping its cause even without its title sponsor. The San Francisco-based bowl game that will be played Dec. 27 between BYU and Washington will still be focused on feeding the hungry even though Kraft Foods declined an option on its contract, leaving the bowl without a title sponsor. Instead of seeking a new sponsor or new name for the bowl in its final year in San Francisco before moving to the 49ers' new stadium in Santa Clara next year, executive director Gary Cavalli decided to keep the Fight Hunger name for a final year. ''We had to evaluate whether we wanted to call it something different like the San Francisco Bowl for one year or whether to keep the fight hunger cause going,'' Cavalli said.

The 32-year-old Norvell has led an offense that amassed over 12,000 yards and 1,000 points in two seasons, most in a two-year span at Arizona State since 1972-73. This season, the Sun Devils set a school record by scoring 50 points six times and their offense finished ninth in scoring and 29th in total offense.
