Jay and Kelly Jacobs, of Laguna Niguel, Calif., have given $3.6 million to support CMU’s Campaign for the Heart of Central. CMU President Roger Drake made the announcement during an alumni tailgate party on Saturday.

Fayette dominates Santa Fe for district win
For the past six years, the Fayette football coaches have spent the Monday after Week 10 cataloging their equipment inventory and collecting players’ uniforms following a district loss that ended the season.
Not this year. Not this time. Coaches and players were busy doing other things Monday, like getting ready for a Week 11 matchup.
Fayette’s offense exploded for 424 total yards and the defense nearly recorded its first shutout of the season Friday night. The Falcons won their first road game of the season, knocking off Santa Fe 44-6 in Alma. It’s the first time Fayette’s football season will extend past Week 10 since 2007, when the Falcons won a district championship.
