The results - and a slide show - were published in today's edition.

Among the favorite Mustangs were quarterback Don Meredith, running back Doak Walker, running back Eric Dickerson, wide receiver Jerry LeVias and cornerback Russell Carter.

Tickets for the 2012 season are now on sale. The season opens Sept. 2 against Baylor in Waco. The first home game will be Sept. 8 against Stephen F. Austin.
