Citing a responsibility to promote a more sustainable planet, Stanford University announced Tuesday it would divest from coal companies. In doing so, Stanford becomes the latest (and largest) of about a dozen colleges to nix coal investments after facing pressure from environmentalists.

The student group Fossil Free Stanford began a petition drive last year urging the change, which prompted a review from an endowment advisory panel and ultimately a vote from the Board of Trustees. In announcing the move, Stanford President John Hennessy said the school "has a responsibility as a global citizen to promote sustainability for our planet," and that emission-heavy coal did not jibe with that ideal.

Stanford does not disclose how it spends every penny of its endowment, but at almost $19 billion as of last August — the fourth-largest endowment in the nation — the potential pool of money is quite large. Jon Terbush

The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 Sunday night at Levi's Stadium, defeating the Carolina Panthers 24-10.

This is quarterback Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl win. During the first quarter, Brandon McManus of the Broncos made an early field goal, and Malik Jackson followed up with a touchdown. In the second quarter, Jonathan Stewart scored a touchdown for the Panthers, followed by another McManus field goal. McManus had his third field goal of the game during the third quarter, bringing the score to 16-7, but the Panthers earned three points in the fourth quarter after a field goal from Graham Gano. Late in the fourth quarter, C.J. Anderson scored a touchdown for the Broncos. Catherine Garcia

Two very different Doritos ads aired during Super Bowl 50 — one featuring feisty dogs just trying to get their paws on some chips, the other a Dorito-loving fetus being taunted by its father.

Both videos were finalists in the brand's Crash the Super Bowl contest. Over the past nine years, Doritos has given fans the opportunity to create 30-second videos, with the winning one airing during the big game. Doritos says thousands of videos have been submitted since the contest started, and now, in its final year, the winner will receive $1,000,000. That could pay for a whole lot of Doritos.

Beyonce dropped her new single "Formation" on Saturday, and fans were able to listen to it live for the first time during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show. The performance — complete with a Beyonce army and a uniform inspired by Michael Jackson's 1993 Super Bowl attire — then shifted gears, and Beyonce paired up with Bruno Mars for a mashup and dance off. Watch the performance below. Catherine Garcia

For the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, Coldplay called in a few friends to help rock Levi's Stadium. After playing a medley of hits, the band stepped aside to let Bruno Mars perform "Uptown Funk" and Beyonce and crew steal the show with "Formation." The show ended with everyone joining forces to sing together, fireworks, and a special message in the stands. Catherine Garcia

Fans of the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers went all out for Super Bowl 50, donning their wackiest wigs, outfits, and accessories for the big game (all in shades of orange and blue, of course), with some even going so far as shaving the number of their favorite player into their hair. Here's a look at some of the biggest fans at Levi's Stadium. Catherine Garcia

Jordan Norwood of the Denver Broncos set a record on Sunday for the longest punt return in Super Bowl history.

Norwood caught the ball and sprinted for 61 yards before being ran down by Mario Addison on the Panthers' 14-yard-line, NBC Sports reports. The new record shatters the previous one made by John Taylor, 45 yards, during Super Bowl XXIII. Catherine Garcia

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is known to celebrate first downs and touchdowns by "dabbing," but did you know it was actually Betty White who taught him everything he knows about the dance craze? Okay, that might not be entirely true, but White is certainly taking credit for it in a new CBS Sports video. Watch everyone's favorite golden girl show off her moves in the video below.
