Texas to pay Royal tribute against Iowa State


November 9th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – When No. 19 Texas takes the field on Saturday against Iowa State, the Longhorns will be paying tribute to former coach Darrell Royal with helmet stickers bearing his “DKR” initials and the first play on offense, which will be run from the wishbone formation Royal introduced to major college football in 1968.  Royal died this week at age 88, and the school will honor the coach who won two national championships, a share of a third and 11 Southwest Conference titles from 1957 to 1976.

It will be an emotional day for Texas coach Mack Brown, who was very close to Royal and often talked about their friendship and the mentor’s role Royal had in his life.

Struggling Purdue, Iowa Hook Up in Iowa City


November 9th, 2012 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Purdue is trying to win for its embattled coach.

Iowa is vying to curb a tailspin that’s threatening to keep it out of a bowl game.

Neither the Boilermakers nor the Hawkeyes figured there would be so much at stake for a game that means so little in the Big Ten standings.

Purdue (3-6, 0-5) and Iowa (4-5, 2-3) have combined to lose eight straight league games heading into Saturday’s showdown in Iowa City. The Boilers have fallen apart after a 3-1 start that included a narrow loss at national title contender Notre Dame.

The Hawkeyes have dropped their last three games, including a 24-21 defeat at Indiana that gave the Hoosiers their first back-to-back league victories in five years.

Steelers’ Haley worried about Chiefs, not revenge


November 9th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Todd Haley isn’t looking for revenge against the Kansas City Chiefs. The former Chiefs coach — now the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator — says he’s trying to treat Monday night’s matchup between his former employer and his new one like just another game. Haley was fired by the Chiefs with three weeks left in the 2011 season. He insists he’s moved on and has no extra incentive to beat Kansas City. Haley joked he’ll be excited if the Steelers win and depressed if they lose, just like always. It hasn’t taken long for Haley to mesh with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who is on pace to set career highs in attempts, completions and touchdowns.
