IN THE NEWS

The NFLPA will hold a conference call today to vote on the CBA.
– The NFLPA decided to not vote on the proposed CBA Friday. They will talk more and vote sometime next week.

TODAY: The big game of the day is Kansas at Baylor. This game could determine the Big 12 title. A Kansas win puts the two teams in a tie but a Baylor win essentially wraps up the conference title for the Bears.
