Seahawks tickets sell out quickly


NFL: The Seahawks say they sold out of playoff tickets in less than 30 minutes.

The team sold a limited number of tickets on Tuesday morning, after giving season-ticket holders first dibs on the seats they have occupied all season.

The game on Jan. 11 at 1:35 p.m. in Seattle is against a yet unknown opponent.

The opponent will be decided next week, and it will be the Green Bay Packers, the San Francisco 49ers or the New Orleans Saints.

Ex-Iowa State, Michigan coach Orr dies

His death was confirmed by Iowa State, where Orr led the Cyclones to a school-record 218 wins from 1980 until 1994.
