With Black Friday and Small Business Saturday in the rearview mirror, shoppers are moving on to Cyber Monday.

Another non-tropical low is expected to form over the eastern Atlantic this weekend.        A kicker for Vanderbilt University is the first woman to ever play in a Power Five college football game. Sarah Fuller kicked off at the start of the second half of Vanderbilt's game against Missouri on Saturday.
