WHAT THEY MIGHT BE DOING TODAY ...

Mardy Fish might be looking for a breakthrough vs. Roger Federer.

Robin Ventura might be hoping the Twins are just the cure for what ails his White Sox.

Brady Hoke might be trying to remember why he thought it would be a good idea for Michigan to open with Alabama.

25,317: Purdue at Rice

26,886: Rice at Northwestern

28,042: Eastern Illinois at Northwestern

29,878: Illinois vs. UCLA, Fight Hunger Bowl
