The storied Mammoth Mountain Ski Area on Tuesday announced plans to sell a controlling interest in its sprawling holdings in the eastern Sierra to a private investment firm led by luxury hotel mogul Barry S.

Matt Kegel's season was going along so well, he probably figured it couldn't last. It didn't. After throwing only four interceptions in his first seven games, the Washington State senior quarterback tossed five interceptions and fumbled twice in last week's 36-30 comeback victory over Oregon State in Pullman.
