LUTZ AP Sports Writer_ For four of the five Big 12 teams advancing to the bowl season, it’s just * a joy to be there. For No. 2 Nebraska, it’s about a national championship. The Comhuskers will challenge No. 3 Tennessee in the Orange Bowl on New Year’s Dfay, retaining hopes of overtaking Rose Bowl-bound No. I Michigan for a national title. “They (Tennessee) are the No. 3 team and that was the highest ranked team available to us,” Nebraska coach Tom Osborne said. “Now we have a chance to get something done nationally.” • Michigan will play No. 8 Washington State in the Rose Bowl while die Comhuskers travel a familiar path to the Orange Bowl. While the Comhuskers try for a national title, No. 20 Texas AAM will Scoreboard Golf also return to familiar ground against No. 5 UCLA in the Cotton Bowl, formerly tied in with the defunct Southwest Conference; No. IO Kansas State will play No. 14 Syracuse in die Fiesta Bowl; No. 19 Missouri will play No., 18-Colorado State in the Holiday Bowl; and No. 24 Oklahoma State will play No. 17 Purdue in the Alamo Bcwl. The Aggies lost big to the Comhuskers (54-15) on Saturday in the Big 12 championship game but. coach R.C. Slocum doesn’t think that will affect his team. “I think sometimes, those really heartbreaking losses where you’re right on die brink of winning except for a turnover or missed pass, those are the hardest to deal with,” Slocum said. “But you take a game like the other night, we played hard but we played a team that was better than us on that night.” Orang* 22, Galatia 19 I amfa Ladles QoN Association Tournament ^Issuits Doc. 3 Whetter (11-3) va. Granger (12-1), 7:30 p.m. Saturday, ShotweN Stadium. Abilene Oklahoma State is advancing to a bowl game for the first time in nine seasons. The Cowboys lost three of their last five games, two in overtime, but that doesn't cloud coach Bob Simmons’ view. “I don't have any regrets how we finished the season,” Simmons said. “I thought we played well down the stretch. We started out 6-0 and then got in some tough games that could have gone either way so I don’t see that as a team backsliding. “We finished up with a win over Baylor. I feel good about this football team. There is nothing negative in what’s going on at Oklahoma State this past season.”    , Kansas State jumped over higher ranked UCLA and North Carolina to get into the alliance bowls giving coach Bill Snyder yet another recruiting chip—but a victory would help even more Happy hunter Cotton Bowl Holists to east $65, parking Glo DALLAS (AP) — Tickets to tie Cotton Bowl game between No. 5 UCLA and No. 20 Texas AAM will goon sale Wednesday, AAM officials announced Monday. Tickets this year will sell for $55 each, with parking passes going for $10 each. Texas AAM, which is obligated to sell at least 12,500 tickets of the 68,252 seats, has begun taking ticket orders from the Aggies' current season tickets.

The general public can order tickets by calling (888) 992-4443 or (409) 845-2311 on weekdays. “Certainly the alliance seems to be an elitist group that draws national attention, but it’s all based on if you succeed,” Snyder said. “The greatest recognition comes at game time. You hate to lay eggs on national television.” Missouri completed it’s turnaround season by cheering few Kansas State when the bowl invitations were 28 Players — 3 Fights A-FNght (10 Mayan.

Calif. (AP) — Latrell Sprewell. fired by Golden State and banned from the NBA for a year, plans to break his silence Tuesday about his attack on coach P.J. Carlesimo. A spokeswoman for Sprewell’s agent. Am Tellem. said Monday that Sprewell w ill be joined by Tellem and NBA Players Association executive director Billy Hunter at the 5 p.m. EST news conference. The spokeswoman said she did not know if attorney Johnnie Cochran Jr. would attend the conference. Sprewell and Tellem have consulted with Cochran, who successfully defended O.J. Simpson on murder charges. Sprewell. a three-time All-Star guard, was fired by the Warners and suspended by the NBA after attacking Carlesimo twice at practice last week. Sprewell received the longest nondrug suspension in NBA history last Thursday, hours after the Warriors terminated the final three years of his four-year, S32 million contract. Witnesses said Sprewell grabbed Carlesimo by the throat and threatened to kill him. About 15 minutes later. Sprewell returned to practice and confronted the coach again The players' union has filed gne\-ances against the NBA and the Warners, arguing the penalties against Sprewell were excessive. The case will be heard by Fordham Law School Dean John Fecrick no earlier than Jan. 4 In two interviews last week, Sprewell admitted he was wrong to have attacked Carlesimo and apologized to fans and his family and friends for the incident. But he did not apologize to Carlesimo, and »aid the coach provoked the attack with his verbal abuse of Sprewell throughout this season. Kurt Robinson, who identified himself as Sprewell’s attorney, told KNBR-AM on Monday that Sprewell called Carlesimo over the weekend and apologized to the coach. “Spree did apologize to Carlesimo.” Robinson told KNBR “What he didn’t want to do was a public apology in the media. He felt it was a man-to-man situation and one of those things that happens between men sometimes, where you just feel that what is said to you is of such a magnitude that you must address it. He felt it should be addressed man-to-man between him and Carlesimo, and that’s what he did.’’ Robinson, who did not return calls to his office, also told the radio station that “the apology was accepted and I also understand Carlesimo also apologized to Spree ” The Warriors refused Monday evening to comment on Robinson’s claims, saying, “Due to the pending litigation, we have no comment on the issue ” Subscribe to the Herald-Zeitung!
