AKRON, Ohio – With interest surrounding The University of Akron football program at an all-time high following the naming of Terry Bowden as head coach last month, season tickets are now on sale for the Zips’ much anticipated 2012 campaign. Fans can choose from a variety of economical packages that feature great amenities and provide special event access.

Bowden, who was head coach at Auburn from 1993-98 and spent the previous three seasons (2009-11) at Division II North Alabama, was hired at UA on Dec. 22. He owns a 140-62-2 career record and earned the 1993 national coach of the year award after leading Auburn to an 11-0 finish. In between stints at Auburn and North Alabama, he served as a television analyst with ABC college football for 10 years.

“I have really enjoyed getting to meet our enthusiastic fans and supporters during these last few weeks,” Bowden said. “We need for the community to continue to support our program and the best way to do so is by renewing or purchasing season tickets. My staff and I have been hard at work the last three weeks recruiting the next class of Zips, and we’re excited to get on the practice field this spring to begin preparing for the season.”

The 13th-seeded Terriers end the year at 26-9 while the Badgers move on at 24-8.

CORNELL 78  TEMPLE 65

The 29-6 Owls from the Atlantic 10 Conference, never got untracked as Cornell. the best team to come out of the Ivy League in 10 years, never let lost control of the game.

MISSOURI 86  CLEMSON 76

Clemson Head coach Oliver Purnell will have to wait until next year to win an NCAA Tournament game. He has taken three schools to the “Big Dance”, Old Dominion, Dayton and Clemson and has yet to win a game. Clemson ends up at 21-11.

23-10 Missouri was led by Kim English and Keith Ramsey each scoring 20 points and the Tigers swarming defense shut Clemson.

WEST VIRGINIA 77   MORGAN STATE 50

Morgan State (27-10) had delusions of grandeur as they led early in the contest 10-0 while the Mountaineers missed their first 11 shots.

But West Virginia (28-6) rebounded to win the game and advance.
