As Terry Pegula began to address an audience at One Bills Drive for his formal introduction as the second owner in the franchise history of the Buffalo Bills, he was overcome with emotion.

Entering the seventh week of the college football, Washington defensive tackle Danny Shelton is tied for third in the nation with seven sacks and third outright with 10 tackles for loss.
Those numbers are typically reserved for edge defenders, not nose tackles listed at 6’2″ and 339 pounds.
Playing a position at which he is responsible for two gaps and consistently sees double teams, his production is incredibly valuable.

This past weekend was the most exciting weekend of college football that I can remember in a long time. This week offers similar intrigue, featuring five games between teams who are both ranked in the top 25. Beyond that, there are several other matchups to keep an eye on with major conference implications.
From an NFL draft perspective, the attention should be on Oregon and UCLA, as two quarterbacks with high first-round aspirations will take center-stage. Before breaking them down, there were some great individual performances from last week to highlight.

Waiver Wire Pick-Ups
Mike Glennon, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Owned in 6% of Yahoo! Leagues): With Josh McCown out and Glennon having a five-to-two touchdown-to-interception ratio, Glennon would be a good add this week for those needing to replace Drew Brees on bye. Expect him to be a solid QB2 option each and every week considering how unstable their run game is right now and how much they are likely to be playing from behind.
Brian Hoyer, QB, Cleveland Browns (5% Y!): Despite many raving for Johnny Manziel to be the starting quarterback, Hoyer has been better than decent so far for the Cleveland Browns, with more than 1,000 yards passing and a six-to-one touchdown-to-interception ratio, despite having few weapons outside of oft-injured tight end Jordan Cameron. When Cameron gets healthy and Josh Gordon returns in Week 12, expect Hoyer to put up even better numbers. He could be a high-end QB2 come fantasy playoffs time.
Branden Oliver, RB, San Diego Chargers (14% Y!): With Donald Brown now concussed, Ryan Mathews out with a knee injury and Danny Woodhead done for the year with a broken ankle, Oliver will be the lead back in San Diego until Brown and/or Matthews get healthy. After he ran for more than 100 yards and scored rushing and receiving touchdowns against a tough New York Jets run defense, he is a must-add who could easily have another great week as he has an easy matchup against the Oakland Raiders.

The Buffalo Bills are now owned by someone other than Ralph Wilson, Jr. and his immediate family for the first time in the franchise’s 55-year history.
The owners of the National Football League unanimously approved the sale of the Bills to Terry and Kim Pegula on Wednesday morning. The husband and wife will each hold 50 percent stakes in the team, as reported by John Kryk of the Toronto Sun.
