Nov. 24, 2014 5:15 p.m. - Updated: 5:22 p.m.

Washington State receiver Vince Mayle has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama on Jan. 24. The game and the practices leading up to it, along with the NFL Combine, is one of the best chances prospective NFL draftees have to impress scouts and general managers. Hundreds of active NFL players once played in the Senior Bowl and the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl had 21 former Senior Bowlers, 16 of whom started.

The two schools meet tomorrow at 6 p.m. at the CenturyLink Arena in Boise for their annual men's basketball rivalry game, which has been played every year since both UI and BSU were in the Big Sky Conference.

Ruffin returning to Spokane for 2015

Nov. 24, 2014 4:39 p.m. - Updated: 4:41 p.m.

James Ruffin, who was honored as the 2014 AFL defensive lineman of the year, will return to Spokane for the 2015 season, the team announced.

Ruffin set a franchise record with 14 sacks last season and was named first-team All-AFL. The Northern Iowa product also owns the Shock record for career sacks with 26 in three seasons. Ruffin joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in training camp following the AFL season, but was released in late August.

“There aren’t many players out there, at any level, like James Ruffin,” Shock coach Andy Olson said. “During his time here in Spokane he has been a model example of what it means to be a leader both on the field and in our community.”
