Stadium, they'll only get to see part of history. During
a halftime ceremony, ABC college football announcer
Keith Jackson will be honored for his years of service to the
college football fans in Iowa.
Last summer, Jackson announced this will be his final
year as the play-by-play announcer next to Bob Griese in
the lead ABC booth. And so far, retir-
ing may be the most profitable deci-
sion he's ever made.
At every stop thus far, Jackson has

Fry can-barely recall how he and Jackson formed their
unique bond. But thinking really hard, his recollection came
in typical Fry fashion.
When Fry was a young coach at Southern Methodist, he
took his Mustangs into the Horseshoe for a game against
Ohio State. Jackson introduced himself to the unusual head
coach when he saw Fry standing in the Buckeyes' end of

As the regular season approaches its
conclusion, the No. 19 Michigan soccer
team seems to finally have captured
some much-needed momentum.
It's much-needed, because if the

The Wolverines, facing their second
overtime challenge in as many games,
fell victim to the prowess of Wisconsin,
which was the first team to outshoot the
