You can go home -- if you're a legend

Ex-Pittsburgh and Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett accomplished a lot in his college and pro careers, including winning the Heisman Trophy, a national title and a Super Bowl. Friday night, Dorsett added another honor -- having a stadium named after him. His alma mater, Hopewell (Pa.) High, renamed its home field Tony Dorsett Stadium.

Sensory overload

South Florida president Judy Genshaft was among about 500 Bulls supporters at the game. Genshaft, carrying a green-and-gold pompom, was overcome with joy in the media room after the game. "It's the best win, it's great!" Genshaft said as she hugged a reporter. "I almost needed CPR at the end of this."

Great new stuff

Pittsburgh is a more happening sports town these days thanks to two spectacular new stadiums. The Pirates are playing their first season in PNC Park, another in the line of popular retro-style baseball stadiums throughout the nation. The pro and college football teams, the Steelers and Panthers, are joint tenants of new Heinz Field, adjacent to the Allegheny River and separated by a few parking lots from PNC Park. Reminiscent of Raymond James Stadium, sans pirate ship and with bright golden yellow seats, Heinz Field, with a natural grass surface, has drawn rave reviews in its first few games this fall.
