Net income fell to $863 million, or $1.51 a share, from $958 million, or $1.53, a year earlier, the Houston-based company said Wednesday.

Punter Tom Hackett and placekicker Andy Phillips were named to the Ray Guy and Lou Groza watch lists, respectively, on Wednesday. A former Australian rules football player, Hackett may have the strongest chance of any Ute at collecting postseason hardware — particularly if things don’t go well and the Utes often require his services.
