Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville smacks hat and headset off assistant coach in a fit of anger (VIDEO)By Frank Schwab | Dr. Saturday – Sat, 10 Nov, 2012 2:45 PM EST
Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville wasn't happy that his team took a penalty on fourth and 2, so he hit one of his assistant coaches, knocking his hat and headset off.
It's very rare to see any physical contact between coaches on a sideline, so the reaction to this incident should be interesting, and it probably won't be pretty for Tuberville.Read More »from Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville smacks hat and headset off assistant coach in a fit of anger (VIDEO)

Texas will have many tributes to former coach Darrell K. Royal, who died early this week, including adding his initials to the logo at midfield in the stadium that bears the famous coach's name.
It's the same logo the Longhorns will have on their helmets for the rest of the season.
Texas also plans to open Saturday's game in the wishbone offensive formation as a tribute to the coach that made that offensive style so successful for the Longhorns.

Over the last few weeks of the season, the four-team race for the BCS Championship Game will be the dominant storyline in college football.
Of the top four -- Alabama, Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame -- the oddsmakers have one clear favorite to win the title, one clear underdog and no sign who it thinks will be the second team in that title game.Read More »from The week’s best picks: Could Notre Dame beat the odds and crash the party?

(US Presswire)USC receiver Marqise Lee is already a strong candidate to go to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist, and playing some snaps on defense might give him a better shot to take home the award.
Lee, already considered the top receiver in the Heisman race, might play defense this weekend against Arizona State, according to a few media outlets including ESPN.com.
"We've looked at some defensive situations for the first time this week with him out there," USC coach Lane Kiffin said, according to ESPN.com. "That may present itself Saturday."Read More »from USC star WR Marqise Lee’s Heisman campaign might see boost with snaps on defense

The drama over whether Klein, the Kansas State quarterback and Heisman Trophy frontrunner, will play at TCU at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday is probably the biggest storyline going into Week 11.
Snyder doesn't like to talk about anything regarding his program, especially injuries. Klein had his helmet taken away when he was knocked out of last week's game against Oklahoma State, and Yahoo! columnist Dan Wetzel reported he was taken out over fears he had a concussion.Read More »from What to watch, Week 11: Will Optimus Klein be ready?

Texas is going all out with its helmet decal to honor legendary coach Darrell Royal, who passed away this week at age 88.
Instead of a small decal somewhere on the helmet, Texas incorporated Royal's "DKR" initials into the normal Longhorn logo that's on the side of the helmet. That's fitting considering what Royal meant to the Texas program and his legacy on the Longhorns.
The helmet decal was tweeted out by Texas football's official feed.
Saturday's game against Iowa State will be a special one for Texas, which will run the wishbone formation that Royal is best known for on the first play.
