Just days after Auburn lured Iowa State's head coach, Gene Chizik, to take over its football program, Iowa State has returned the favor, naming Paul Rhoads, Auburn's defensive coordinator this season and a former Cyclones assistant, to succeed Chizik. Rhoads, who will try to revive a program that is coming off a 2-10 season in which it did not win a Big 12 Conference game, has never been a head coach.

"I see UCLA as a team that's comparable to Kansas in terms of talent," Floyd said Tuesday as he studied Bruin game tapes in preparation for Thursday's Iowa State-UCLA matchup in the Midwest Regional semifinals in San Antonio.

Wayne Morgan was introduced as the basketball coach at Iowa State on Wednesday, succeeding Larry Eustachy and ending a tumultuous two weeks at the school.

Jeff Shudak kicked a school-record five field goals, including a 36-yarder with 14 seconds left that gave Iowa State a 27-25 Big Eight victory over Missouri Saturday. Shudak kicked the winner after Missouri (3-7, 1-5) had taken a 25-24 lead on freshman Phil Johnson's 65-yard touchdown pass play to Skip Leach with 1:38 remaining. It was Johnson's third touchdown pass of the day, but his two-point conversion pass fell incomplete, giving Iowa State (4-5-1, 2-3-1) a chance to win.
