GARY ANDERSEN publicly pledged his allegiance to Utah State not long ago. Now he's on the verge of becoming Wisconsin's coach. Wisconsin reportedly will hire Andersen to replace Bret Bielema, who left the Badgers earlier this month to take the Arkansas job. The news about Andersen broke Tuesday night and neither Utah State nor Wisconsin had anything official to announce about Andersen on Wednesday. The delay is at least in part tied to laws in Wisconsin that require a state job to be posted for at least two weeks before it can be filled.

Wisconsin reportedly will hire Utah State's Gary Andersen, 48, to replace football coach Bret Bielema, who left the Badgers earlier this month to take the Arkansas job. The news broke Tuesday night, but neither Utah State nor Wisconsin had anything official to say about Andersen on Wednesday. The delay is at least in part tied to laws in Wisconsin that require a state job to be posted for at least two weeks before it can be filled. The two-week posting was up at the end of business on Wednesday.

A UTAH STATE basketball player who collapsed at practice and had to be revived after he stopped breathing is improving and making good progress, school officials said Wednesday night, although the player remains in critical condition. Danny Berger is awake and talking to his family in a Salt Lake City area hospital, Utah State basketball team doctor Trek Lyons said at a press conference in Logan. Tubes used to help Berger breathe have been removed. "He recognizes his family, his doctors and the instructions he is given," Lyons said.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Kyle Flood seemingly has an easy one - a gimme, if you will - in his first home game at head coach at Rutgers. Coming off a career-opening win over Tulane in New Orleans, Flood's Scarlet Knights will take on Howard (1-0) of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. They are 8-0 against teams in that Football Championship Subdivision conference and have outscored their last two opponents, 79-0, in games the past two years. The last time Howard visited High Point Solutions Stadium, the Bison were beaten, 45-7, in 2009.

LUKE KUECHLY, BOSTON COLLEGE - He led the nation in tackles for two seasons and complemented his intelligence and instincts with impressive athleticism at the NFL combine, where he ran the third-fastest 40 among linebackers. He is considered one of the safest picks in the draft, and the Eagles would probably have to move up to get him. DONT'A HIGHTOWER, ALABAMA - The next choice among inside linebackers, Hightower is more of a run-stopper, and analysts don't see the speed and cover abilities the Eagles covet.

AUBURN, Ala. - Unfazed by 87,000-plus fans and a Southeastern Conference power, Utah State twice raced to double-digit leads before falling to No. 23 Auburn, 42-38, on Saturday, after a wild final few minutes. The Tigers (1-0) closed it out with two touchdowns wrapped around a successful onside kick in the final 2 minutes, 7 seconds after the Aggies (0-1) pulled to a seemingly secure 10-point edge with Robert Turbin's 1-yard TD run 91 seconds earlier.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Could Curtis Marsh be forgotten before he plays a single game? Isn't that what they are all striving for? To make an impact. To be unforgettable. Near the end of Sunday's morning practice, Asante Samuel, one of the three Pro Bowl cornerbacks burying Marsh on the Eagles depth chart, needed a blow. With Marsh's roommate, Nnamdi Asomugha, out with a minor injury, the 6-foot, 197-pound Marsh stepped in at left cornerback. The first-team offense was scrimmaging against the first-team defense.
