  • PAC 10 to Honor Pat Tillman

    http://www.sportsline.com/collegefootball/story/7405136

    TEMPE, Ariz. -- Pat Tillman received another tribute when the Pac-10 renamed its defensive player of the year award after him.

    Tillman, the first NFL player to die in combat since the Vietnam War, won the award himself in 1997 as a safety at Arizona State. He left the Arizona Cardinals to serve in Afghanistan, where he was killed April 22.

    Commissioner Tom Hansen said the league's football coaches suggested the renaming -- and the athletic directors approved the change last week.
