CINCINNATI (AP) - James Harrison and Ben Roethlisberger remember their first time together a bit differently.
The linebacker had a big game for Kent State in 2001, repeatedly getting to Roethlisberger when he was just getting started on his career at Miami of Ohio. The Golden Flashes won the game 24-20, clinching their first winning season in 14 years.
Their recollections of that game differ a bit. It was a point for teasing when they were in Pittsburgh together winning Super Bowls. Harrison had a hand in all five of Kent State's sacks, including one that essentially clinched the game. Roethlisberger doesn't recall all of that.
On Monday night, Harrison will be back to chasing Big Ben around the field when the Bengals (0-1) host the Steelers (0-1).
