    On Sept. 16, the USC Trojans and Texas Longhorns played each other for the first time since their epic clash at the Rose Bowl in 2006.

  • Vaught’s Views: ‘Don’t give up on them’

    By Larry Vaught

    How could Kentucky not have seen an uncovered Florida receiver on two different plays that gave the Gators two easy touchdowns? How could no one on the field seen a receiver waving his arms for the football because no one was lined up close to him? How could 11 UK staff members in the press box not noticed or how could no one on the UK sideline not seen a player standing five yards from them with no one on him?

    The David R. Hourigan Government Building is more than 10 years old, and it’s starting to show its age.
