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.

Petrino rejoins Arkansas football staff

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas head football coach Bobby Petrino has announced Paul Petrino as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Razorbacks.

Paul Petrino most recently completed his second season as offensive coordinator at Illinois, and has 20 years of collegiate experience and an impressive offensive background, which includes national top-10 rankings in scoring and total offense.

“I am extremely thrilled to have Paul become a member of our staff again,” said UA head coach Bobby Petrino. “Paul has had several options with high level programs the past few days and I’m excited he made the decision to rejoin our program. His experience the last two seasons, blended with our philosophy will give us continuity with our aggressive scheme. Paul has a talented offensive mind and he has had great success every step of his career. His offensive numbers and rankings speak for themselves, and he has always had an incredible ability to develop players.”

In 2011, Petrino coached A.J. Jenkins to one of the best seasons by a receiver in Illinois history, as Jenkins led the Big Ten with 84 catches. His 1,196 yards rank second in school history prior to Illinois’ appearance in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and he also ranks in the school’s top-five in season receptions, season 100-yard receiving games, career receptions, career receiving yardage, career receiving touchdowns and career 100-yard receiving games.

Petrino guided an Illini offense that broke school records for total points (423) and points per game (32.54) in 2010 and featured running back Mikel Leshoure, who broke the single-season school rushing record with 1,697 yards. Illinois averaged 42.1 points and 448.9 total yards over the last seven games of the season and notched a 38-14 win over Baylor in the 2010 Texas Bowl.

In 2009 as offensive coordinator at Arkansas, the team averaged 37 points per game, which ranked eighth in the NCAA, while also posting top-15 rankings in passing offense at No. 10 (303.3 ypg) and total offense at No. 14 (439.3 ypg). Razorback quarterback Ryan Mallet was the nation’s sixth-rated passer, averaging 285 yards per contest and throwing 29 touchdowns. The Razorbacks broke the school record for passing yards with 3,640, eclipsing the previous record that was set under Petrino in 2008.

Louisville was second in the country in total offense (475.3 ypg), seventh in passing (290.0 ypg) and fourth in scoring (37.8 ppg). In 2005, Louisville (9-3) was ninth in the nation in offense (482.1) and third in scoring (43.4 ppg) with six offensive players earning first-team All-Conference honors. Running back Michael Bush led the nation with 24 touchdowns, while receiver Mario Urrutia was second in the nation in yards per catch.

The 2004 team won the Conference USA title, beat No. 10 Boise State in the Liberty Bowl, finished 11-1, finished ranked No. 7 in the nation, and led the nation in total offense (539.0 ypg) and scoring offense (49.8 ppg).

Russell earned All-Conference honors for the second-straight season after catching 73 passes. He had 75 catches for a school-record 1,213 yards in 2003.

Petrino began his coaching career in 1990-91 as the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator at his alma mater, Carroll College. He coached at Idaho for the next three years (1992-94), where he tutored receivers, running backs and special teams.

Lack of success at Ole Miss leads Nutt to resign

Two years ago, Mississippi Rebels head coach Houston Nutt seemed to have his football program on the upswing.

The Arkansas native arrived in Oxford, Mississippi after a 10-year career at SEC rival Arkansas and he helped lead the Rebels off to a good start of 18-8 during the first two years which included Cotton Bowl wins over Texas Tech and Oklahoma State in back-to-back years.

The Rebels had not enjoyed that kind of success two seasons in a row in almost 40 years. But everyone overlooked the fact that Nutt achieved success with the players left over from previous head coach Ed Orgeron. He could not upgrade the roster with his own recruits.

That is the reason why on Monday, the 54-year-old Nutt announced he’ll resign at the end of the season. He’ll stay on to coach the final three games against Louisiana Tech, LSU and Mississippi State, according to Rebels athletic director Pete Boone.

Ole Miss has lost 12 straight SEC football games, including the 30-13 debacle last Saturday against Kentucky. The Rebels are a disappointing 2-7, 0-6 in the tough SEC this year.

Nutt, who is earning $2.7 million this season, has a 24-23 record at Ole Miss.

The downward spiral for Nutt and his program was in the 2010 season opener, when Jacksonville State upset the Rebels in double overtime 49-48. The fans in Oxford were appalled and called for his resignation. That was the first time in the school’s football history that the Rebels had lost to a Football Championship Subdivision team.

The Rebels can’t seem to find and keep a football coach for long. The next hiring will be their fifth since 1998 and third since 2007.
