College Football Bowl Game Wrap-Up
Southern California's disappointing season ends on a down note as the top team in the AP preseason poll got beat 21-7 by Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl. Tevin Washington snapped a 7-7 tie with a one-yard touchdown run in the third quarter before he found Orwin Smith for a 17-yard TD with 13:11 remaining. The Yellow Jackets rushed for 294 yards on 63 carries and finished the season 7-7 by stopping a seven-bowl losing streak. The Trojans end the year 7-6.
Jordan Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score as the Vanderbilt Commodores capped their best season in nearly a century Monday by beating North Carolina State 38-24 in the Music City Bowl. The Commodores finished 9-4 for their best record since going 9-1 in 1915, and it's only the third time the smallest and only private university in the Southeastern Conference has won as many as nine games in a season. They also finished with seven straight wins, their longest streak since winning eight in 1948. N.C. State wrapped up a 7-6 season under interim coach Dana Bible.
Tulsa won the Liberty Bowl as Alex Singleton ran for three touchdowns to lead at 31-17 victory over Iowa State. Singleton's three scores gave him a school-record 24 touchdown runs this season. Trey Watts rushed for 149 yards and the Golden Hurricane erased a 17-7 deficit in posting the second 11-win season in school history.
