The Iowa Hawkeyes played the Alamo Bowl without Tiger Hawk emblems on their helmets, wearing simple black headgear in memory of Diane Mitchell. The Hawkeyes peeled off the gold emblems and gold stripe to honor linebacker Mark Mitchell's mother, who was killed in a car crash Friday while traveling to the game with her family. "We were going to play hard either way. I think maybe it gave us a little extra edge," junior Jason House said after Iowa's 27-0 victory over Texas Tech on Sunday night.

FRENCH LESSONS Adventures With Knife, Fork and Corkscrew By Peter Mayle Alfred A. Knopf: 228 pp., $24 Irrepressible, like springtime, like ants at a picnic, like Nixon. I've given up criticizing Peter Mayle. It's time to join him. He's having so much fun, in "French Lessons" especially, pretending (by his own admission) to be a journalist, wandering into villages, writing about food festivals, from snails to cheese to frogs (Miss Grenouille of the smooth thighs!) and, yes, wine.

Christopher Bowman, who calls himself Hans Brinker from hell, spent a night there Friday. He suffered back spasms before going onto the ice and then skated one of the poorest performances of his career to virtually eliminate himself from contention in the national figure skating championships. Bowman, the defending champion and runner-up in the 1989 World Championships, fell once, failed to complete his required combination jumps and then almost fell again.

Christopher Bowman won on the ice, Todd Eldredge won in the conference room, and Paul Wylie won in the judges' hearts. So where did that leave Mark Mitchell, figure skating's hard-luck kid? Out. Again. In again was Bowman, the free spirit from Van Nuys who won the men's title at the U.S. championships Saturday for the second time in four years with a 4 1/2-minute freestyle program that was, while not spectacular, good enough.

Mark Mitchell was a little short of brilliant on the ice in 1992, earning no less than the co-favorite's role in the first phase of the men's competition today at the America West Arena in the U.S. figure skating championships. It was off the ice, in the safety of his Boston apartment, that he was not so sure footed. "I slipped," he said this week.

Canadians Kurt Browning and Elvis Stojko set up their medal duel, taking the two top spots in the men's qualifying rounds at the World Figure Skating Championships in Prague. Browning, who won the world championship three times before faltering last year, earned scores of 5.6 to 5.9, making him the slight favorite over Stojko, who hit a rut in the ice toward the end of his routine and fell. Americans Mark Mitchell and Scott Davis were third and fourth, respectively, in Browning's group.
