CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Back in the dark, awkward days after Ron Zook had been fired as Florida coach but not yet banished from Gainesville, his wife Denise was flipping through a magazine when she spotted a small, clear block with a single word on it. Believe. Now at Illinois, with the Illni 5-1 and No. 18 in the country, they're believing in Zook these days. By National Writer Nancy Armour.

FBC--COLLEGE FOOTBALL FOCUS.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Earl Bennett spent hours on the streets of Birmingham, Ala., catching passes from his older brother. When Bennett's time came, none of the SEC powerhouses he had dreamed of playing for called. They missed out on a two-time All-SEC receiver who is seven catches from becoming the league's career receptions leader. By Antonio Gonzalez
CINCINNATI - For coach Brian Kelly's first home game, the University of Cincinnati couldn't come close to filling its small football stadium. Two months later, the school is talking about adding thousands of seats. Six wins have changed nearly every conversation on campus. By Joe Kay.
FBC--TAILGATING BY BOAT.
SEATTLE - Brandie Hassing calls it her ballet - the choreographed symphony of boats being methodically maneuvered to create a floating community unlike any other in college football. On Saturday's in the fall, the waters of Lake Washington on the southeastern edge of the University of Washington campus get morphed into a tailgating phenomena where those fortunate to own or gain passage on a water-going vessel get a unique college football experience.
