Arkansas announced last night that they will wear a memorial decal for former NCAA coach Mike Leach, who died on Dec. 12, for today’s Liberty Bowl.
This makes the Razorbacks at least the ninth team to memorialize Leach for their bowl games. The other eight I’m aware of are as follows:

Leach’s most recent team, Mississippi State, plays their bowl game on Jan. 2, so we’ll presumably be hearing something about their memorial decal or patch shortly.
Update: I’ve just learned of three additional schools that have worn Leach memorial decals:
So that brings the total number of Leach-tributing schools to at least 12.
(My thanks to our own Jamie Rathjen for alerting me to an error in the original text of this entry, regarding the date of Mississippi State’s bowl game, and also to Colin Lowther and Patrick Lasseter for letting me know about the three additional teams.)
