If it seems a little quiet around the athletics facilities, and campus in general, it's because we're in final exams. We have 48 student-athletes set to graduate this semester. For the nine in our football program, graduation will come at the team hotel in San Diego on Tuesday, Dec. 20. As we've done in the past because of bowl travel, Chancellor Boschini will officiate a special ceremony for them. A tip of the cap to offensive lineman Spencer Thompson who will have his master's degree in hand by the time he steps on the field for us in the Poinsettia Bowl.
