It's safe to say college football will never again know a character like Beano Cook, who died in his sleep Wednesday at age 81. Cook was a legendary sports information director at Pittsburgh who became a television public relations man and then a longtime ESPN commentator and contributor. "Unique, extraordinary, humorous and loved the game like few others," ESPN broadcaster Mike Tirico tweeted Thursday. Cook had an encyclopedic memory about college football and an acerbic wit. No one was more passionate about the sport.

Five things to watch this week in college football: 1. Penn State Coach Joe Paterno easily notched career victory No. 395 with Saturday's 44-14 home victory over Youngstown State, but getting No. 396 this weekend is going to be a Bear because the Nittany Lions travel to Tuscaloosa to challenge No. 1 Alabama. Paterno was 0-4 against former Crimson Tide coach Bear Bryant and says this Alabama team compares favorably to the great squads of yesteryear. 2. No. 13 Miami visits No. 2 Ohio State in rematch of the 2002 season's BCS championship game in the Fiesta Bowl.
