The Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston on December 31 pits two teams with 6-6 records, Texas A&M and Northwestern.

The Aggies have fired head coach Mike Sherman due to the team falling shy of high expectations.

Tim DeRuyter, the team’s defensive coordinator, has been given the ship to run until after the game on New Year’s Eve. The Aggies lost four of five games to end the season.

Northwestern had a bad streak of their own in the middle of the season, losing to Army, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa and Penn State before winning four of the last five games to get bowl eligible.

The Wildcats are in the postseason for a program-record fourth season in a row. The fifth-year seniors on the team have 36 wins in their careers, the best ever for a five year group at the Chicago area school. But it has been since January 1, 1949, that Northwestern has ended the season with a bowl win. They won the Rose Bowl that year.

The Wildcats are led by QB Dan Persa, who completed 74.2% of his passes in their ball-control, horizontal passing offense.

Texas A&M’s QB is Ryan Tanneyhill who was 12th in the nation in passing and he threw 28 touchdown passes to talented receivers Ryan Swope and Jeff Fuller.

The new Yankee Stadium will be the scene of the 2011 version of the Pinstripe Bowl which has Iowa State (6-6) against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (8-4).

The Pinstripe Bowl is nothing new to Rutgers. They beat Army last year and returns after losing its chance of a BCS game and a share of the Big East title after losing to Connecticut in the season finale.

Iowa State is a dangerous team who can score points. The Cyclones scored 44 on Iowa, 41  at Texas Tech and 37 against Oklahoma State.

The Scarlet Knights have won four straight bowl games and are led by WR Mohamed Sanu, who at 6’2, 215-pounds set a new Big East record for receptions in a season with 109 for 1,144 yards and seven touchdowns.

Tulane football coach Toledo resigns

UTEP beat Tulane University 44-7 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last Saturday and the fans in New Orleans chanted “fire coach Toledo.”

Earlier this week,  Tulane head coach Bob Toledo met with athletic director Rick Dickson and the two mutually agreed that the football coach should resign.

Dickson has named Mark Hutson as the interim coach for Tulane’s remaining six games. Hutson also was the interim head coach at Eastern Illinois in 2006. Hutson has been the Green Wave’s offensive line coach for all five years with Toledo. He led Eastern Illinois to a co-Ohio Valley Conference championship and an 8-5 record in his season as interim head coach and he has also been an assistant at Tulsa and Arkansas.

Toledo, who is 65, a former head coach at UCLA, took over the Tulane Green Wave in 2007. Eventhough his record was 13-35 in his first four years, Toledo received a two-year extension after last season in the hope his recruiting efforts would pay off with a winning season in 2011, but the team is 2-5 and has been blown out by Tulsa, Duke, Army and UTEP.

Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Jason LaBarbera is using his mask this season to pay tribute to NFL-star player-turned war-hero Pat Tillman.

Tillman was definitely a fan-favorite in Arizona, first with Arizona State and then with the NFL’s Cardinals.

He joined the Army shortly after 9/11 and was killed by friendly fire in 2004.

LaBarbera came up with the idea to honor Tillman over this past summer.

The 6’3, 230-pound goalie was drafted as the 66th overall pick in the 1998 NHL Draft by the New York Rangers.

LaBarbera has played for the Rangers, the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver.
