Trice enrolled at Iowa State College and planned to major in animal husbandry. The Iowa-Northwestern game is one of 14 night games being played inside the Big Ten Conference this season. However, Smith did come up with seven assists and a steal.
Winning the first two games 12-7 and 15-14, Northwestern salvaged the final game at home Sunday, winning 11-3 at Sharon J. Drysdale Field in Evanston, Ill. The 11-3 win by the Wildcats also ended in five innings.
On the football field Trice continued his tradition from high school and was an exceptional player on the defensive line. He played on the freshman team in 1922, and by the following year was considered by many to be all-conference caliber, with an extremely bright future ahead of him.
The Heels pulled off an upset on Saturday with a 34-31 victory over East Carolina. One more win and the Baby Blues are gonna get bounced right out of the top ten. But they have a solid chance to retain their coveted spot with a Saturday date with Virginia. The Cadavaliers swatted down Duke last week and are looking to mop up a win against yet another basketball school.

The Hawks are 5-3 in night games in Kinnick Stadium with wins coming against Penn State in 2010, Michigan in 2009, Syracuse in 2007, Arizona State in 2003 and Northern Illinois in 1999. The program also lost to Ohio State in 2006, Iowa State basketball in 2002 and Miami of Florida in 1992.
It was clear this season in both Iowa City and Ames that the future of the programs was not now. The future was most certainly just that — the future.
Michigan is the favorite to win the league, but Iowa finishing in the middle of the pack after a 10th place finish this past season is not far fetched. The team will have 95 percent of its talent back and will welcome incoming freshmen Josh Oglesby, who could be the team’s best shooter this season.
The Sages of Sport invite you to consider what will happen if the Fighting Irish put a good hurt on the boys in Blue. Whatever your football passions, don’t miss this game. Never has there been a more interesting match up between two 0-2 teams. The Wolverines still have to play out the schedule that they thought was the path to January 2 and the BCS pinnacle. Unfortunately, their current trajectory might take them to the Comedy Club.
