The stadiums are almost 2,300 miles apart.

— KOKH-25 has switched its noon Sunday NFL telecast from San Francisco at St. Louis, featuring former OU quarterback Sam Bradford, to Minnesota at Green Bay, featuring ex-Sooner back Adrian Peterson.

— CBS analyst Gary Danielson said Georgia's quarterback play might be the key to the SEC Championship as the Bulldogs face Alabama at 3 p.m. Saturday. “Mark Richt's team has a chance to compete against anybody,” he said. “He has his defense together and with a quarterback, he has a chance to win.” Verne Lundquist, Danielson and reporter Tracy Wolfson will call the game.
