No. 13 UCLA trying to avoid another upset by Fresno State
If there is an early game that can measure the progress UCLA has made under Chip Kelly, it is likely to be Saturday night when the 13th-ranked Bruins host Fresno State. The last time the two teams met at the Rose Bowl was 2018, when Kelly was in his first season. The Bruins got within 16-14 early in the second half before the Bulldogs scored the last 22 points to win going away.news.yahoo.com
Kelly making sure No. 16 UCLA isn't resting on its laurels
Chip Kelly has made it a point to eschew topics relating to history and trends. After a 38-27 victory over LSU last Saturday put the 2-0 Bruins in the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2017, Kelly reminded his 16th-ranked squad that an early victory over the Tigers wouldn’t mean much in December unless they take care of business in the remaining 10 regular-season games. “Mississippi State beat LSU in the opener last year, and then they lost their next four games.”news.yahoo.com
Jags hire ex-49ers exec Baalke as GM, removing interim tag
The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Trent Baalke as general manager Thursday, removing the interim tag from his title and pairing him with new coach Urban Meyer. Khan interviewed five minority candidates and Baalke for the team’s open GM job. Baalke spent a dozen years with the 49ers, half as GM. Before moving to Jacksonville, Baalke spent three years (2017-19) working as an operations consultant for the NFL. Adding to the appeal: Khan, a billionaire businessman, has shown a penchant for patience and a willingness to spend big.

California to let college athletes make money, defying NCAA
(Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images)SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Defying the NCAA, California opened the way Monday for college athletes to hire agents and make money from endorsement deals with sneaker companies, soft drink makers, car dealerships and other sponsors, just like the pros. Critics have long complained that universities are getting rich off the backs of athletes - often, black athletes struggling to get by financially. "I'm tired of seeing people get ripped off, and I'm tired of seeing these college athletes being ripped off." If that were to happen, California schools could form a new governing body and get schools from like-minded states to join, in a threat to the NCAA's dominance. The NCAA does let some athletes accept money in some instances.
