Default Bending/deforming text in maya along a curve

Can someone please show me how to bend text along a curve in maya like you see in so many sports broadcast logo's??? I create the 3d text just fine and extrude it just fine. For the life of me i just cant get it to bend along a curve. I have lost so much sleep trying to get this right and i need to get this under my belt fast. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.........
