He'll Be in Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Joe Montana and Kris Haines, the
quarterback-receiver combo that led Notre Dame to one of the
greatest comebacks in college football history, were among six
inductees into the 2010 AT&T Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame on Wednesday.
Also honored at the eighth annual ceremonies were Texas wingback
Phil Harris, Alabama middle guard Warren Lyles, Texas A&M and
Mississippi State coach Jackie Sherrill and the late Wilbur Evans,
the Cotton Bowl's first executive director.
Montana, who went on to a Hall of Fame career spanning 16
seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City
Chiefs, helped the Fighting Irish to a 38-10 upset of top-ranked
Texas in the 1978 Cotton Bowl as Notre Dame won the national title.
