Perry, Oklahoma governor bet beef

By the Associated Press

AUSTIN (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating have decided a side of beef will go to the leader of whichever state wins this weekend's Longhorns-Sooners football battle.

The two announced Tuesday that the losing governor will donate a side of homegrown beef to the winning governor. The beef will then be given to the home charity of the winning governor's choice.

Perry predicted a 34-14 University of Texas win. Keating predicted a 24-10 OU victory.

"This annual friendly wager between the governors of our two neighboring states helps boost state pride and remind everyone on both sides of the Red River what terrific universities and football teams we both have," Keating said. "And since this is my final OU-Texas game as governor, I intend to go out a winner."

The game is scheduled for Saturday in Dallas.


AUSTIN (AP) -- A professor at the University of Texas has been elected president of the Association of American Law Schools.

Gerald Torres, who teaches law at UT, will lead the nonprofit organization of 164 law schools, the university announced Tuesday. His term will begin in January 2004.

Torres is the fifth law professor from The University of Texas at Austin to be selected for this position.

He began teaching at UT in 1993 after having taught at the University of Minnesota Law School. He has worked as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Environment and Natural Resources Division at the Justice Department and counsel to former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno.
