Position switch suits Cook

STREATER+COOK
---A fixture at cornerback, St. Joseph's product Domonic Cook moved to strong safety alongside three-time All-MAC free safety Davonte Shannon. And while UB still hasn't latched onto a solid replacement for Cook at corner, there's no debating the benefits of the switch.

---Here's a scouting report on Miami (Ohio), and a preview of Saturday's game by The Sports Network. The Bulls are 4.0 underdogs at home.

---Alabama can get back into the national title hunt over the next few weeks. Bama has the toughest future schedule in the nation among Football Bowl Subdivision teams. The Tide's final three FBS opponents have a combined record of 19-3, and all are ranked in every top-25 poll.

---Be prepared for more unbeatens to fall on Saturday.

---Ron Higgins writes that Auburn's Cam Newton, barring injury, is three-fourths of the way to finishing the greatest individual season in SEC history.

---The NCAA seeks informantion about rouge agents from former rouge agent Josh Luchs.

---Recruiting guru Tom Lemming writes there's no blueprint for success in recruiting.

---The WAC is close to completing expansion plans that would bring Texas State and Texas-San Antonio into the conference for football beginning with the 2012 season. Denver and Seattle don't play football but are strong candidates to join in other sports, including men's basketball.
