Unbeaten Coachella Valley boxer Timothy Bradley signed a new promotional contract Thursday and was assigned a prominent semi-main event fight, probably against former champion Joel Casamayor , under the Nov. 12 Manny Pacquiao - Juan Manuel Marquez pay-per-view bout at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Bradley (27-0, 11 knockouts) hasn't fought since January while splitting with former promoters Gary Shaw and Ken Thompson , who have sued the fighter. Bradley hasn't settled with Shaw and Thompson, the boxer's manager, Cameron Dunkin , said, but he has been advised he can sign with veteran fight promoter Bob Arum's Top Rank company.

For bettors who like to put money on college football games, last weekend's games were nothing special. Just a few point-spread nail biters. Business as usual for oddsmakers. For example, Penn State was a 25-point favorite over Temple and Coach Joe Paterno's Nittany Lions held a commanding lead in the final minutes of the blowout. The Owls, however, put together their best drive of the second half and had first and goal at the Penn State five-yard line with less than three minutes to play.
