Oscar Night! Bradley Cooper's Eagles Fandom Up for Best Picture: What Philly Fans Need to Know

Tough television choices this evening with the Sixers playing the Knicks at the Garden and Jennifer Lawrence wearing a dress at the Academy Awards. I may have to ignore Spencer Hawes for an evening, as tough as that may sound.

And that movie with Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro is up for Best Picture! Surely, the fact that they're Eagles fans will mean they will not win.

But here are some links to read up on the movie. We reviewed it, sort of, before it hit theatres in our 10 Things Eagles Fans Will Enjoy About Silver Linings Playbook.

Penn State stays at No. 2 in latest AP poll after impressive win over Michigan

Penn State looked like a bona fide National Championship contender in its blowout win over Michigan on Saturday (see story)

That said, the Nittany Lions remained one spot behind unanimous No. 1 Alabama, who beat Tennessee Saturday, at No. 2. In fact, the top eight teams remain the same from last week's poll, meaning that No. 3 Georgia, No. 4 TCU and No. 5 Wisconsin round out the top five.

With their statement win over the Wolverines, the Nittany Lions knocked Michigan, previously No. 19, entirely out of the Top 25.

Penn State faces its highest ranked opponent of the season on Saturday, when the Nittany Lions travel to Columbus, Ohio, to play No. 6 Ohio State.
