Thursday Sports News And Notes…NFL Game, College FB Game, MLB, More

Lots of things going on in our Thursday Sports News and Notes…

** NFL game tonight finds the winless New York Giants facing the Chicago Bears.   Also, former Gator defensive lineman Justin Trattou, recently released by the Giants, has signed with Minnesota.

** College football tonight too as former Gator assistant Charlie Strong leads his unbeaten Louisville Cardinals into a matchup against Rutgers.  Also, USC hosts Arizona.
