Hall Of Fame Cornerback Herb Adderley Dead At 81

(AP) – Hall of Fame cornerback Herb Adderley has died at 81. His death was confirmed on Twitter by his cousin Nasir Adderley, a safety for the Los Angeles Chargers. No details were given.
Adderley played on six NFL title teams over a 12-year career with Green Bay and Dallas. He was a star running back at Michigan State, but Packers coach Vince Lombardi switched him to defense. He played in four of the first six Super Bowls and won five titles with Green Bay and one with Dallas. Along with former teammates Fuzzy Thurston and Forrest Gregg, Adderley is one of three players in pro football history to play on six championship teams.  After his retirement, Adderley was a crusader for the rights of former players.

College Bowl Game Schedule Set

(AP) – College football’s bowl schedule is finally set and will begin Dec. 19, the day most of the major college football conferences are set to play their championship games.
The 37-game bowl schedule will now include several mainstays like the Holiday Bowl in San Diego and the Hawaii Bowl because of issues related to the pandemic.
But there will still be opportunities for 72 teams to go bowling in the 36 games that lead up to the College Football Playoff national championship on Jan. 11 in Miami Gardens, Florida.
