Football thesportsbank.net —  NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr did an ESPN conference call with the nation’s media and the one college program that kept coming up was…Miami? Notre Dame? USC? Nope.

Men's Basketball michiganstate.247sports.com —  Having taken care of business Thursday night at Rutgers, Michigan State has a chance to make a real move in the Big Ten Standings Sunday against Michigan.
