Ball State’s Taylor Persons nailed a spectacular three with 1.7 seconds remaining in a tie game to upset number-nine ranked Notre Dame in South Bend tonight, giving his Cardinals their first-ever win in 10 tries against the Fighting Irish.

It was so brief, we weren't sure we had seen it correctly, but reader Todd sent in the video: UCF's dance team seems to be organized around, if not led by, an extremely tall, enthusiastic and graceful male dance teamer.

Ahhh. Mid-American Conference football. You were born a fan, it's just that nobody told you until tonight. The undefeated Ball State Cardinals flutter into Mount Pleasant to tangle with some fired up Chips. Winner probably wins the MAC West Division, a fact which you already knew.
