  • Kessler leads USC to 45-42 win over Huskers Dec 27, 2014 11:49 PM
    Adoree’ Jackson scored on a 98-yard kickoff return and a 71-yard pass from Cody Kessler, and No. 24 Southern California blew most of an 18-point, third-quarter lead before beating No. 25 Nebraska 45-42 in the Holiday Bowl on Saturday night. Kessler completed 23 of 39 yards for 321 yards and three touchdowns for USC (9-4), which was playing Nebraska (9-4) in a bowl game for the first time. The Trojans took a 45-27 lead after Kessler threw a 20-yard scoring pass to Bryce Dixon with 2:03 left in the third quarter. Armstrong brought the Huskers back with a 65-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Westerkamp with 24 seconds left in the third quarter and then a 15-yard keeper with 6:52 left in the game. His 2-point conversion pass to Kenny Bell pulled Nebraska to 45-42. USC held De’Mornay Pierson to a 1-yard gain on a pass from Armstrong on fourth-and-3 from the USC 31 with 2 1/2 minutes left. Armstrong completed 32 of 51 passes for 381 yards and three TDs, with one interception. USC had 515 yards of total offense and Nebraska finished with 525. Kessler tied the USC single-season record of 39 touchdown passes set by Matt Barkley in 2011. Barney Cotton coached Nebraska, which fired Bo Pelini on Nov. 30. New coach Mike Riley watched from a skybox. USC’s Javorius Allen gained 152 yards on 26 carries and scored on runs of 2 and 44 yards. After Nebraska’s Drew Brown kicked a 34-yard field goal early in the first quarter, Jackson caught the kickoff at the 2 and ran it up the right sideline for the longest kickoff return in Holiday Bowl history. His 71-yard TD on a catch-and-run came on the first play from scrimmage after Nebraska punted on its first possession of the second half. He caught a short pass from Kessler and weaved through defenders to give USC a 31-17 lead.

  • Arizona State beats Duke 36-31 in Sun Bowl Dec 27, 2014 7:53 PM
    EL PASO, Texas — Kalen Ballage returned a kickoff 96 yards to set up the winning score in No. 15 Arizona State’s 36-31 victory over Duke on Saturday in the Sun Bowl. Ballage’s big return came after Duke (9-4) took a 31-30 lead on receiver Jamison Crowder’s 12-yard touchdown pass to Isaac Blakeney with 5:03 left. On the kickoff, Ballage took the ball near the goal line and went straight up the right hash for about 15 yards before picking up a block and cutting to his right. He was pushed out of bounds at the 4. On the next play, Demario Richard took a shovel pass from Taylor Kelly and bulled his way over the left side and into the end zone. Kelly was stopped on the 2-point conversion try. Duke drove to 14 on its final drive, but Anthony Boone’s third-and-10 pass was intercepted by Kweishi Brown in the end zone with 45 seconds left. Richard, a freshman, was selected the game MVP. He scored four touchdowns for the Sun Devils (10-4) and tied a Sun Bowl record for points with 24. Richard carried seven times for 41 yards and two scores, and caught five passes for 22 yards and two more touchdowns. Duke cut it to 30-24 with 10:10 left in the fourth on Boone’s 14-yard pass to Barnes. Richard opened the scoring with a 9-yard run in the first quarter and gave the Sun Devils, who scored the first four times they had the ball, a 20-3 lead on a 1-yard run midway through the second. Duke rallied with two touchdowns in 1:55 span — Boone’s 14-yard pass to Shaquille Powell and Crowder’s 69-yard punt return — to cut it to 20-17 at the half. Kelly threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Richard in the third and Zane Gonzalez added a 47-yard field with 2:23 left in the quarter to push Arizona State’s lead to 30-17. Kelly was 24 of 34 for 240 yards in his final game for the Sun Devils. The senior said he felt as healthy as he had at any point since injuring his foot against Colorado early in the season. Jaelen Strong, leaving early for the NFL, led Arizona State in receiving with seven catches for 103 yards. It marked his 12th 100-yard receiving game, tying him for second in program history. D.J. Foster had 11 carries for 79 yards and caught three passes for 42 yards. Still, this game belonged just as much to Arizona State’s freshmen, who earned two of the game’s three MVP awards. In addition to Richard, Ballage was the special teams MVP, and senior defensive lineman Marcus Hardison the MVP lineman. Hardison had with 13 tackles, including one for a loss. Boone was 15 of 31 for 193 yards. Powell ran for 117 yards on 29 carries and had three catches for 52 yards, and Crowder had seven receptions for 102 yards. Boone and Powell led a balanced Duke attack that ran more plays (77-69) and controlled the time of possession (35:07 to 24:53) and slightly outgained the high-powered Sun Devils 400-392 in the first meeting between the teams. That allowed the Blue Devils to stay in the game against an Arizona State team that was 7-1 this season and 23-1 overall under head coach Todd Graham when leading at the half. Arizona State finished with its third consecutive 10-win season, while denying Duke a second consecutive 10-win season. Duke lost in a bowl game for the third year in a row.

  • Illini destroy Kennesaw State 93-45 Dec 28, 2014 12:41 AM
    Illinois coach John Groce is confident his team is ready for Big Ten conference play after crushing nonconference foe Kennesaw State 93-45 on Saturday. Rayvonte Rice led Illinois (10-3) with 21 points. Malcolm Hill chipped in 16 points and nine rebounds while Aaron Cosby added 13 points. The Fighting Illini opens conference play on Tuesday at Michigan.

  • Northwestern beats Northern Kentucky 76-55 Dec 27, 2014 5:15 PM
    Tre Demps tied a career-high with 23 points as Northwestern beat Northern Kentucky 76-55 on Saturday. Northwestern took its largest lead at 74-50 on a Demps 3-pointer with 2:32 left. He finished 9 of 18 from the field. Bryant McIntosh added 15 points and Scottie Lindsey had 12 for Northwestern (9-4) in its final non-conference game before beginning Big Ten action on Tuesday. The Wildcats have won three straight and four of five. Todd Johnson scored 14 points for Northern Kentucky (6-7). The Norse fell to 0-3 against Big Ten teams this season. Northwestern extended its lead to 18 with 17:41 left after three-point plays by Sanjay Lumpkin and Demps, and a Lumpkin dunk. Northern Kentucky cut the lead to nine on Johnson’s 3-pointer and free throw with 10:38 remaining. But Vic Law’s jumper and Gavin Skelly’s putback extended Northwestern’s lead to 13 with 8:02 left.

  • Virginia Tech beats Cincy 33-17 in Military Bowl Dec 27, 2014 5:45 PM
    As the ball came bouncing out of Gunner Kiel’s hands, the Cincinnati quarterback — and any hope the Bearcats had of winning the Military Bowl — crashed hard onto the artificial turf. A woozy Kiel left the game after the last of his three turnovers, and Cincinnati’s season ended Saturday with a 33-17 loss to Virginia Tech. Kiel exited in the third quarter during a play that essentially snapped the Bearcats’ seven-game winning streak and assured Virginia Tech (7-6) a 22nd consecutive winning season. Deon Clarke sacked Kiel and forced a fumble at the Cincinnati 43. Nigel Williams picked up the ball and fumbled at the 12, where teammate Greg Stroman scooped it up and took it into the end zone for a 27-10 lead. Kiel remained down for several minutes and was helped off the field before being taken to the locker room. The 6-foot-4 sophomore did not return, and without him Cincinnati (9-4) had little chance to mount a comeback. “He’s been banged around pretty much this year. That was a good, clean lick,” Bearcats coach Tommy Tuberville said. “I think his head hit the ground. This turf is not made for collisions like that. He’s fine. He’s a little dizzy and not very clear. He probably could have come back and done a few things, but further injury (at) that point is really not worth it.” With backup Munchie Legaux nursing a knee injury that will require surgery, Cincinnati turned to senior walk-on Michael Colosimo, who threw a touchdown pass but had too big a deficit to overcome against too good a team. “We didn’t play well but Virginia Tech did,” Tuberville said. “They took advantage of our miscues and pretty much put it out of reach early in the third quarter.” Kiel went 14 for 26 for 244 yards, but had two interceptions to go with his fumble. The Notre Dame transfer finished the season with 3,254 yards passing, the third-highest total in school history. Michael Brewer went 14 for 24 for 94 yards and a touchdown to guide the Hokies to their highest point total since a 34-17 win at North Carolina on Oct. 4. Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer worked in the upstairs coaching box to avoid the risk of infection during his recovery from throat surgery. The Hokies were making their 22nd consecutive bowl appearance under Beamer, whose last losing season at Tech was in 1992. “I have had many proud moments in my time at Virginia Tech but this is one of my proudest,” Beamer said. “When you consider the constant adversity we have had to endure this season, it is just rewarding that we believed in one another and continued to fight our way through it.” The Hokies opened the second half with a 75-yard drive for a touchdown and a 20-10 lead. Coleman opened the possession with four carries for 43 yards before Brewer tossed a TD pass to tight end Ryan Malleck on third-and-goal from the 1. Minutes later, Kiel’s fumble enabled the many Virginia Tech fans among the crowd of 34,277 to breathe easier. “I love it when they call a blitz,” Clarke said. “I had an open shot at him and when I hit him, I was able to knock the ball loose.” Freshman Joey Slye kicked four field goals for the Hokies, who finally got a noteworthy victory to add to their upset at Ohio State on Sept. 6. “We had two objectives that we wanted to accomplish today,” Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler said. “We wanted to win for our seniors, and we wanted to win for Coach Beamer.” Virginia Tech led 13-10 at halftime despite a 307-148 deficit in yardage. The Hokies picked off two passes and Slye kicked field goals of 45 and 49 yards, the latter coming on the final play of the half. Kiel threw for 179 yards in the first quarter, including a 40-yarder to Shaq Washington on the game’s first play. But the drive ended with a missed field goal. Kiel threw for 84 yards in an 89-yard drive later in the quarter that ended with a 31-yard TD pass to Rod Moore. Virginia Tech answered with a 1-yard touchdown run by Coleman. The Hokies successfully executed a trick play during the possession when Brewer caught a 30-yard pass from freshman wide receiver Isaiah Ford. Kiel’s second interception led to a Virginia Tech field goal. Late in the half, Kiel directed an 86-yard drive that produced a field goal for a temporary tie.

  • Penn State tops Boston College 31-30 (OT) in Pinstripe Bowl Dec 27, 2014 9:04 PM
    Christian Hackenberg hit Kyle Carter for a 10-yard touchdown pass in overtime and Penn State kicked the extra point that Boston College could not, lifting the Nittany Lions to a 31-30 win in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Saturday night. The Nittany Lions (7-6) played in a bowl game for the first time since January 2012 after the NCAA lifted the most severe sanctions levied against the program in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Penn State’s Sam Ficken used retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter’s locker and some of his clutch postseason play appeared to rub off on the kicker. He sent the game into OT with a 45-yard field goal with 20 seconds left in regulation and won it with his extra point. Tyler Murphy hit David Dudeck for a 21-yard touchdown past on Boston College’s drive. Mike Knoll shanked the extra point for the Eagles (7-6) and that was the opening Penn State needed to complete its comeback from a 21-7 deficit late in the third quarter. Penn State has played under the cloud of scandal and sanctions for the most of the last four years, tearing at the fabric of the community known as Happy Valley and tarnishing the legacy of Joe Paterno. Moments after Penn State hoisted the bowl trophy on the field, first-year coach James Franklin took the microphone and thanked the seniors “who stayed with this program when we needed them most.” He told the thousands of die-hards that packed the stadium, “You want to talk about closure? Look around! This is closure!” The Eagles left stunned after blowing the lead and missing their eighth extra point of the season. Knoll put the Eagles ahead 24-21 on a 20-yarder with 2:10 left in the fourth. Ficken, who won the opener in Dublin with a 36-yard field goal as time expired, bookended the season with his biggest kick yet. Captain to captain, Ficken had the honor of using the retired Jeter’s locker Saturday. Ficken is Penn State’s special teams captain. Hackenberg played more as he did freshman year, when he had NFL scouts raving about first-round potential rather than this season’s erratic sophomore effort. He set Penn State records for completions and yards passing (34 of 50, 371 yards) and earned MVP honors. He went over the middle and hit DaeSean Hamilton to make it 21-all with 6:48 left in the fourth. Hackenberg should have been eligible for a potential bowl game his senior season. But when the bowl ban was lifted this season, the Nittany Lions earned the chance to play in front of 49,012 fans at Yankee Stadium. Murphy and Jon Hilliman had run wild for the Eagles to build a lead. Murphy found Shakim Phillips in the corner end zone for a 19-yard touchdown and a 14-7 lead early in the third. He then showed how he set the ACC’s single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 1,079 yards in 2014 with a 40-yard dash that put the Eagles ahead 21-7. Hilliman, who led the team with 12 rushing TDs, broke through early with a 44-yard run that gave him more yards on one carry than three teams had in a game this season against Penn State: Central Florida (24), Massachusetts (3) yards and Maryland (25). He averaged a whopping 19.2 yards-per-carry on just five attempts for 101 yards in the first half. He found a huge opening late in the first quarter for a 49-yard touchdown run that tied the game at 7. The Nittany Lions scored first on Hackenberg’s 72-yard TD pass to Chris Godwin down the right sideline with 5:22 left in the first. The score earned a booming “We are! Penn State!” chant from the Penn State fans that helped fill Yankee Stadium. The Nittany Lions turned the Bronx into a miniature Happy Valley, flooding the train from Philadelphia to New York on Saturday afternoon, then overtaking the subway lines. Once they emerged at the corner of 161st Street and River Avenue, Yankee Stadium may as well have been Beaver Stadium. Mark Holtzman, who runs non-baseball events for the New York Yankees, said tickets sold out in 36 hours, the fastest of the five Pinstripe Bowls so far.

  • S. Carolina tops Miami 24-21 in Independence Bowl Dec 27, 2014 7:57 PM
    It took South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier less than two quarters to abandon his gameplan and go back to what he knows best. “We’re going to chuck it down the field and see what happens,” Spurrier said. Thanks to Dylan Thompson and Pharoh Cooper, the change of heart worked. Thompson threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns, Cooper caught nine passes for 170 yards and a touchdown and South Carolina to beat Miami 24-21 on Saturday in the Independence Bowl. South Carolina (7-6) has won a school-record four straight bowl games. Miami (6-7) ended the season on a four-game losing streak and hasn’t won in the postseason since 2006. It didn’t look good for the Gamecocks early. Miami took a 6-0 lead and was completely controlling the game thanks to Duke Johnson, who ran for 132 yards and caught five passes for 51 yards. South Carolina’s offense, meanwhile, wasn’t doing much of anything. But in the middle of the second quarter, Spurrier decided to cut the passing game loose — even in cold and wet conditions. The strategic change paid off immediately. Thompson hit Cooper on a long pass over the middle of the field and the 5-foot-11, 201-pound sophomore made a few more moves in the open field to finish off a 78-yard touchdown play and give the Gamecocks a 7-6 lead. They never trailed again. South Carolina scored 17 straight points to take a 17-6 halftime lead. It was a satisfying ending to a frustrating season for the Gamecocks, who started the season with aspirations of competing for Southeastern Conference and national titles before quickly fading into mediocrity. Spurrier has had just one losing season in 25 seasons as a college head coach — back during his first season with Duke in 1987. Miami’s Brad Kaaya threw for 236 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The touchdown came late in the fourth quarter on an 11-yard throw to Phillip Dorsett with 2:16 remaining to pull the Hurricanes within 24-21. But they never got the ball back after South Carolina picked up a crucial first down on Mike Davis’ 3-yard run with 1:34 left. It was an another impressive game for Johnson, the 5-foot-9, 206-pound junior who has likely played his last game with the Hurricanes and is expected to declare for the NFL draft. But he had a costly fumble on Miami’s 29 with 5:24 remaining and South Carolina recovered. Johnson also suffered a right ankle injury on the play and didn’t return to the game, though he was up and walking on the sideline in the final minutes. Johnson said he was “fine” after the game and “probably” could have returned if it had been needed. “We are what our record is,” Miami coach Al Golden said. “But in so many ways we’re better than that.” Two plays after Johnson’s fumble, Thompson hit Cooper on a spectacular pass and catch to get down to the Miami 2. Thompson fit the ball into a tight window and Cooper helped him by leaping over the defender to make the grab. Thompson trotted into the end zone untouched on the next play and the Gamecocks had what proved to be an insurmountable 24-14 lead with 4:13 left. Miami squandered some early opportunities, settling for field goals after long drives stalled. Michael Badgley made field goals from 27 and 26 yards to give the Hurricanes a 6-0 lead by early in the second quarter. The Gamecocks never looked comfortable until Thompson’s 78-yard touchdown to Cooper. Thompson scrambled out of the pocket a few minutes later on a broken play before finding Davis on a 15-yard touchdown pass. “The golden rule of a quarterback is to never throw back across the field,” Thompson said. “But Mike looked so naked out there, I just thought ‘I’ll give it a shot, it’s my last game.”’ The Gamecocks’ defense — maligned for much of the season — didn’t give up a touchdown until late in the third quarter when Gus Edwards’ 3-yard touchdown run and the Miami’s ensuing 2-point conversion pulled the Hurricanes to 17-14. Cooper was the game’s offensive Most Valuable Player. South Carolina linebacker Jonathan Walton was the defensive MVP after making four tackles, including 1 1/2 for losses, and also grabbing an interception.
