The University of Delaware's football season came to a crashing halt Saturday when the Hens were ravaged by Arkansas State, 55-14, in a quarterfinal game of the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs. The visitors' wishbone offense proved almost impossible to contain. The second-ranked Indians (11-1-1) rolled up 646 yards in total offense, 518 on the ground. They scored the first four times they had the ball and on nine of their 13 possessions. Delaware (9-4), which came into the game ranked 13th in the nation, managed 421 yards in total offense, but also gave up three fumbles and an interception.

The Indians (11-1-1) gained a total of 646 yards, 518 on the ground. They scored the first four times they held the ball and on 9 of their 13 possessions.

Arkansas State runs the wishbone, an offense Delaware has not faced since the 1982 season. Delaware runs the wing-T, which Arkansas State never sees. "I'm the only guy on the staff old enough to have ever seen it," said Larry Lacewell, Arkansas State's 49-year-old down-home coach. "I remember watching it in my younger days, when it was popular. " With each team's defense facing the unknown, Saturday's NCAA Division I-AA quarterfinal at Delaware Stadium might wind up 60-55, with defensive players begging for mercy.

Wally Szczerbiak won't go to the second round of the NCAA Tournament alone. But he almost single-handedly got Miami of Ohio there. After scoring a career-high 43 points and grabbing 12 rebounds, Szczerbiak blocked Washington's last-second shot as the RedHawks beat the Huskies yesterday, 59-58, to advance in the Midwest Regional at the Louisiana Superdome. "I was really nervous. But when he blocked the shot and there was no foul, and when I saw the ball was in Wally's hands, I knew we had it," said Damon Frierson, one of only two other Miami players to score.

Nolan Richardson says he is talking with Arkansas State officials about the school's basketball coaching vacancy. Richardson has been out of college coaching since being fired by Arkansas in 2002.

IN THE PRESEASON polls, Auburn received no votes. Then again, neither did Missouri. Auburn went 14-0 in 2010. That was followed by 8-5 and 3-9 (0-8 SEC). Which meant Gene Chizik was gone, after 4 years. And Gus Malzahn, the offensive coordinator on the national-title team, was brought back from Arkansas State (9-3 in one season) to succeed his former boss. Now the Tigers are 8-1, ranked seventh (9-1 Missouri is ninth). This week they host No. 25 Georgia. On Nov. 30, following a bye, they'll host Alabama.

After a whirlwind weekend, Chip Kelly and the Oregon Ducks are right back where they started. Oregon's enigmatic head coach flirted with a trio of NFL teams including the Eagles before deciding late Sunday night to stay with the No. 5 Ducks. On Monday, it was back to business. Kelly was at a coaches' convention in Tennessee. Oregon did not formally announce Kelly's decision - his status hadn't changed, he's still the head coach - but athletic director Rob Mullens said he was "ecstatic" about it. It was an anticlimactic end to the three-day whirl that started soon after Oregon's 35-17 Fiesta Bowl win over Kansas State Thursday night.

FORMER TEXAS coach Darrell Royal was remembered Tuesday in Austin as a humble champion who built a powerhouse football program and a Longhorn brand known around the world. About 1,500 people attended a campus memorial service for the coach who led Texas to national championships in 1963 and 1969 and a share of a third in 1970. Royal revolutionized college football when he introduced the wishbone offense in 1968. Royal died in Austin on Nov. 7 at the age of 88. He was buried at the Texas State Cemetery in a private service on Monday.

The NCAA is on the verge of going international. Meeting in Indianapolis on Thursday, the NCAA's executive committee paved the way for Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, to become the first member from outside the United States to join the sports governing body. All it will take now is a vote from the Division II President's Council when it meets next Thursday. If approved, Simon Fraser could be playing games as of Sept. 1 as an NCAA member. It's the first time since the NCAA adopted a 10-year pilot program for Canadian schools that a university has moved this close to full NCAA membership.
