UNC Asheville (21-12) at Southern Cal (23-11), 8 p.m.

Will other teams make offers to Drew Brees?
Brees' contract will void Wednesday afternoon, and he'll count for $18 million in dead space for the upcoming season. Brees could walk away from New Orleans and get paid more money and have just as good of a chance to win elsewhere.
