Joe Namath Scores a Degree

This article is more than 11 years old.

More than four decades after NFL quarterback Joe Namath played his last college football game, he's going to graduate from his alma mater.

Namath left the University of Alabama in 1965, 15 credits shy of a degree. He's spent the past five years catching up, by studying through Alabama's external program, and will score his Bachelor of Arts on Saturday.

And that's caught the attention of WBUR'S sports commentator Bill Littlefield.

Audio for this story will be available on WBUR's web site later today.

This program aired on December 13, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
