Sugar Bowl Resort , on Donner Summit northwest of Lake Tahoe, has signed an agreement to lease and operate Royal Gorge, North America's largest Nordic ski area for the 2012-2013 season and beyond. Royal Gorge operates on 6,000 acres of land and has more than 125 miles of ski trails that cover beautiful High Sierra terrain from the expansive Van Norden Meadows to the scenic Devil's Peak. Sugar Bowl was opened in 1939 by Austrian ski instructor Hannes Schroll. One of his backers was Walt Disney, after whom Mt. Disney is named.

Winter has returned to the eastern Sierra. Or, in the case of Lake Tahoe, has finally arrived, just in time for the Presidents Day weekend and the start of the second half of the ski and snowboard season.   John Monson, a spokesman at Sugar Bowl on the northwest rim of Lake Tahoe, said his resort received a whopping 61 inches of snow - that's more than 5 feet - on its highest peaks, greatly improving conditions and allowing the resort to open additional terrain, lifts and trails.

Florida State defensive tackle Darnell Dockett was suspended for the Sugar Bowl, the latest in a string of Seminoles punished this season. "He broke one of our rules and is suspended for this ballgame," Coach Bobby Bowden said Sunday. "He will not make the trip." Bowden wouldn't elaborate, but Dockett's lawyer, Stephen Dobson, told the Tallahassee Democrat that police are investigating something that happened at a store in Tallahassee's Governor's Square mall.

Of the top two teams in the final regular-season ranking, one almost got left out of the preseason rating and the other didn't win a Southeastern Conference game last season. Who said picking champions was easy? Rankman's preseason top two, Stanford and Alabama, would have made our final four if the playoff started this year. Clemson made the Bowl Championship Series top 14 to qualify for the Orange Bowl but just missed our cut, which allowed Oregon to grab the last at-large spot in the FCS (Fictional Championship Series)

The Times' college football writer takes time out (he gets two per half) each Friday during the season to answer questions. Question: USC in the Sugar Bowl? Give me a break. How many fumbles, interceptions does it take before Pete Carroll's ego decides that maybe the freshman should spend some time as an understudy, while the Parade All-American on the bench (Mitch Mustain) gets a start? Is Pete Carroll just that determined to play only California quarterbacks or what?

Tennessee Coach Johnny Majors says his team is aiming for a berth in the Sugar Bowl, and he has not discussed with his players the possibility of playing in the controversy-ridden Fiesta Bowl at Tempe, Ariz. The 14th-ranked Volunteers play No. 15 Mississippi on Saturday, and a loss would probably end Tennessee's hopes for a Southeastern Conference championship and a trip to New Orleans.

From Michael Wilbon of the Washington Post, writing about the University of Virginia's decision to not play in the Fiesta Bowl: "How can you elect not to go to the Fiesta because Arizonans voted down the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, then choose the Sugar Bowl even though Louisianians came close to voting former Klansman David Duke, already a state senator, to the U.S. Senate? What would Virginia do next year during the ACC season, vote not to play North Carolina and N.C.

People to this day buy Robin Weber bar drinks. "It's been good for beer," he joked in a recent phone interview. On New Year's Eve, 1973, a year after the scoop-for-score that made Franco Harris famous, Notre Dame executed its own "Immaculate Reception" to defeat Alabama for college football's national championship. The same programs will play for another title Monday night in South Florida. The out-of-nowhere reception made by Weber four decades ago in New Orleans secured a 24-23 Sugar Bowl win and encased the game in football's all-time time capsule.

Notre Dame is headed to the Sugar Bowl, Penn State will play Tennessee in the Fiesta Bowl and Florida State will probably go to the Cotton Bowl if it loses to Miami, several bowl and school sources said Monday. Although official announcements won't be made until Sunday, most major matchups apparently fell into place after Notre Dame's 35-34 loss to Tennessee. Sources said Notre Dame will play Florida in the Sugar Bowl even if the 12th-ranked Irish lose to No. 8 Penn State on Saturday. No.

Another alliance bowl cutdown date came and went Tuesday, with fifth-ranked UCLA remaining on the "protected list" for the Orange, Sugar and Fiesta bowls. Paul Hoolahan, executive director of the Sugar Bowl, has been in contact with Tom Hansen, commissioner of the Pacific 10 Conference, and Pete Dalis, UCLA's athletic director, about the viability of bringing the Bruins to New Orleans. As it stands, the Bruins are probable participants in the Cotton.

One of the unforeseen perks of the maligned Bowl Championship Series was the annual major-bowl quest of the mid-major. Will the last year of the BCS mean the last year of the underdog? Not necessarily, but the new College Football Playoff in two years will be different and less intriguing. Instead of a madcap BCS standings race for a coveted "BCS buster" spot, the lucky winner will be hand-picked by a selection committee. The committee will determine the top team from the "Group of Five" leagues and place it into a major bowl game.

It's fitting only 0.0086 ended up separating No. 3 Oklahoma State from No. 2 Alabama in the final Bowl Championship Series standings. This is the year everything got 0.0086'd. It was never accurate to say before Sunday that Louisiana State and Alabama were "clearly" the two best teams in the country. And you still can't, because in the final BCS standings Alabama and Oklahoma State nearly ended up in a statistical draw. Had one BCS computer flipped and a few more voters considered Oklahoma State's case, we'd be getting an entirely more festive bowl season.
