The first day in a 3 day weekend that features the NFL Divisional Playoffs and several UB teams in action - hope you've got your special spot on your couch prepped and ready along with your favorite brew.

The Rundown

Tonight in Bull: A busy day for UB as a whole with several teams in action. Wrestling heads to Columbia and Sacred Heart today, the Columbia match will be live streamed on the Ivy League Digital Network (but it's behind a paywall). We have a preview already up and it will also serve as a game thread. Men's swimming and diving will be in action at home against Miami of Ohio and Men's Tennis will be on the road at Dartmouth; we'll be using this post as the game thread for swimdive and tennis. Track and Field will also be in competition at the Great Dane Invitational in New York City and we'll be chatting about them in this post as well. Last, but certainly not least there will be a basketball doubleheader at Alumni Arena with the women taking on Akron and the men taking on Central Michigan.

Yesterday's News: Swimming and Diving dominated Niagara, and football got a new commitment for the class of 2016 from Pittsford OL/DL Jack Klenck.

From the Fanshots: Men's Tennis was picked 2nd in the MAC preseason poll. Okezie Alozie will take part in the College Gridiron Showcase.

On the Docket: Previews for the men's and women's basketball games as well as recaps for every team in action.

Why the College Football playoff should expand only slightly or not at all

Former Buffalo Sabre, noted pugilist, and unlikely NHL All-Star Captain John Scott was traded from the Arizona Coyotes to the Montreal Canadiens for defenseman Victor Bartley in a 3 team deal. The swap from the Coyotes to the Habs does have Scott's All-Star Game status up in the air.

Our friends from the Green Bay Packers blog, the Acme Packing Company, made the case for Aaron Rodgers to throw to his running backs Eddie Lacy, and former UB Bull James Starks early and often in their divisional round matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
