Several bowl bids up for grabs in Big 12


November 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The Big 12′s attention is on Kansas State’s national championship dreams, yet there’s plenty left to be decided in the conference over the final weeks. Six teams are bowl eligible, with Iowa State, West Virginia and Baylor still battling for chances to fill out the league’s bowl slots.

Kansas State (10-0, 7-0 Big 12) can clinch at least a share of its first conference championship since 2003 with a win Saturday night at Baylor. The Wildcats moved into the top spot in the Bowl Championship Series rankings after Alabama lost to Texas A&M.

No. 13 Oklahoma and No. 18 Texas remain alive for a possible BCS bowl. If Kansas State gets the league’s automatic berth, the Sooners and Longhorns would be eliminated from consideration for at-large berths with another loss.

Banged up Cyclones brace for home stretch


November 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State is beat up after a brutal seven-week stretch that included five losses against Top 25 teams. At least the weary Cyclones finish the regular season against two teams that are struggling more than they are. Iowa State (5-5, 2-5 Big 12) travels to face a one-win Kansas team on Saturday. On Nov. 23, the Cyclones finish the regular season at home against West Virginia, losers of four in a row. Coach Paul Rhoads says the Cyclones were tired last week and that the coaching staff will cut back on practice this week.

Backfield clarity only place Chiefs edge Steelers


November 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) — In a season during which very little has gone right for the Kansas City Chiefs this season, running back Jamaal Charles is the exception. A year removed from a knee injury that limited him to just two games, Charles is ninth in the NFL in rushing and perhaps the only reliable weapon the struggling Chiefs (1-7) have on offense heading into Monday night’s game against surging Pittsburgh.

The Steelers (5-3) have few problems at the moment, but clarity in the backfield is one of them. Pittsburgh’s running game is humming and backups Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer have both rushed for over 100 yards in a game while subbing for injured starter Rashard Mendenhall.

The reserves are playing so well, coach Mike Tomlin is making no promises that Mendenhall will get his job back whenever he returns from a strained right Achilles tendon.

Purdue Kicks Past Iowa


November 10th, 2012 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Paul Griggs drilled a 46-yard field goal as time expired and Purdue stunned Iowa 27-24 Saturday, snapping a five-game losing streak.

Robert Marve threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns for the Boilermakers (4-6, 1-5 Big Ten), who won for the first time in Iowa City in 20 years.

Purdue led 24-14 before Iowa (4-6, 2-4) rallied to tie the game with 3:32 left. But the Boilermakers stuffed the Hawkeyes on fourth down at the Purdue 35-yard line, and then drove 37 yards to set up the game-winning kick by Griggs.

James Vandenberg had 190 yards passing and a TD for Iowa, which has lost four straight for the first time since 2007.
