Former Cincinnati Bengals head coach Sam Wyche will be tail-gating with the Romney-Ryan "Commit to Mitt Early Vote Express" bus outside Paul Brown Stadium before tonight's nationally-televised Bengals-Steelers game.
Wyche is expected to join the Romney-Ryan bus, which is traveling the state promoting early voting for the GOP presidential tickets, at 5:30 p.m. in parking lot D near Paul Brown Stadium.
Wyche coached the Bengals from 1984 until 1991. He held the record for most wins by a head coach (64) until he was overtaken by Marvin Lewis, the current head coach, in 2011.

In the pantheon of campaign surrogates for the Obama-Biden campaign, few can claim more star power than former president Bill Clinton.
But, Thursday in Parma, a Cleveland suburb, the 42nd President of the United States may have met his match and then some in the "star power" category when he attends a get-out-the-vote rally at Cuyahoga Community College with rock legend Bruce Springsteen.
