Texas Rangers TV announcer Dave Barnett, who's been on leave since making rambling comments during a June broadcast, will work two college football games for the University of North Texas. The university announced Wednesday that Barnett will do play-by-play Saturday against Texas Southern and Nov. 10 vs. South Alabama. Barnett graduated from the school in 1979. During June 18 game at San Diego, Barnett said a runner was on "fifth" base after a "botched robbery." Weeks later, he announced that he was taking an indefinite leave of absence for medical reasons.
