Jackets to face Hawkeyes in Orange Bowl

MIAMI - Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz vividly remembers flipping his television one night last fall and instantly becoming mesmerized by Georgia Tech's spread option offense."I can't imagine trying to get ready for them in a normal week," Ferentz said.Luckily for Ferentz and the Hawkeyes, they'll have a month to prepare.No. 10 Iowa (10-2) will face No. 9 Georgia Tech (11-2) in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 5 in South Florida, a matchup of the Hawkeyes' 11th-ranked defense against the Yellow Jackets' 11th-ranked offense, the misdirection-laden option that blew Ferentz away when he watched the Yellow ...

Falcons fading fast after loss to Eagles

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Mike Smith had more injured than healthy offensive starters by the end of the Atlanta Falcons' third loss in their last four games.That was only part of the somber news.The Falcons' 34-7 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday was the team's worst in Smith's two years as coach. The loss left the 6-6 Falcons on the fringe of the NFC wild-card chase.More reason for concern: Just when the Falcons can't afford another loss, the 12-0 New Orleans Saints come to Atlanta next week.Perhaps intent on countering the somber mood, Smith assumed ...

Tech set for title game

ATLANTA - Derrick Morgan can't remember the last time Georgia Tech won an Atlantic Coast Conference championship.Not that he should.He was a 1-year-old when the Yellow Jackets captured their lone ACC title in 1990, on the way to an unbeaten season and a share of the national championship."That's a long time ago," Morgan said, shaking his head.Ditto for Clemson, a one-time ACC powerhouse that hasn't finished on top of the league since 1991. The No. 25 Tigers are just as eager to break their long drought when they face the 12th-ranked Yellow Jackets in ...

Then he realized Tim Tebow had that job secured.He considered moving to receiver, then discovered Percy Harvin was the main man there.Haden just wanted to get on the field, so he asked about playing cornerback.
