FBC--ACC COACHES' CONTRACTS.
RALEIGH, N.C. - Across the Atlantic Coast Conference, a league most famous for its basketball, the price of hiring and keeping a football coach has never been higher, according to an Associated Press review of coaches' contracts at the league's public schools. N.C. State gave Tom O'Brien a seven-year contract worth about $1.1 million annually to pry him away from Boston College. At North Carolina, Butch Davis got a deal on par with Hall of Fame basketball coach Roy Williams' contract. By Joedy McCreary.

BC-FBC--COLLEGE FB FOCUS
UNDATED - When is enough enough? In college football, that can be a tricky question. While those lopsided finals often lead to complaints about teams running up the score, most coaches will tell you it's not so easy to keep the score down against an overmatched foe. By College Football Writer Ralph D. Russo.
FBC--LSU-DORSEY
BATON ROUGE, La. - LSU's defense would have been formidable even if Glenn Dorsey had left for the NFL after his junior season. His return to the No. 2 Tigers has bolstered what some say may be the school's best defensive unit - even better than the one in 1959 that allowed only 29 points all season. By Brett Martel.

CINCINNATI - The record is perfect. The defense is one of the nation's best. The team is getting votes for the Top 25. Tickets are in demand in a town that liked to treat them as an afterthought. The Cincinnati Bearcats seem to have finally arrived. By Joe Kay.
