(AP) _ Who's number one? Who knows?
Capping an utterly crazy college football season, both
top-ranked Missouri and second-ranked West Virginia were upset.
That throws the Bowl Championship Series title game January 7th
into complete disarray.
Ohio State, which finished 11-and-1, is one team favored to move
into the title game. LSU, Georgia, Southern California, Virginia
Tech, Kansas, Oklahoma, Hawaii and perhaps a couple of other teams
can make an argument they belong in the title game.
The BCS bowl selections will be announced Sunday night.
Here's the rundown from the final Saturday of the college
-- Ninth-ranked Oklahoma beat top-ranked Missouri 38-17 to win
the Big 12 championship. That's the Sooners' second win over the
Tigers this year.
-- Pittsburgh has cost number-two West Virginia a berth in the
BCS championship game. The Panthers stunned the Mountaineers 13-9
in the game known as the Backyard Brawl. The Mountaineers missed
two field goal tries and committed several costly turnovers.
-- Assured by Les Miles he would stay as their coach, the
fifth-ranked LSU Tigers beat 14th-ranked Tennessee 21-14 in the
Southeastern Conference championship game. It's the Tigers' first
SEC title since 2003.
-- Virginia Tech is heading to the Orange Bowl after Sean
Glennon led the sixth-ranked Hokies to a 30-16 win over number-12
Boston College in the ACC title game at Jacksonville. Glennon threw
the tying and go-ahead touchdowns in the second half as the Hokies
improved to 11-and-2. Glennon had three touchdown passes, including
a 24-yard strike to Eddie Royal that put the Hokies ahead 23-16.
-- Eighth-ranked Southern California is Rose Bowl-bound again
thanks to another late-season surge capped by a convincing 24-7
victory over UCLA. John David Booty passed for 206 yards and one
touchdown, and the Trojans rushed for another 231 yards to assure a
date in Pasadena on New Year's Day. The 10-and-2 Trojans won their
final four regular-season games to earn an unprecedented sixth
straight Pac-10 championship.
-- Number-11 Hawaii has inserted itself into the title picture
after finishing as the lone unbeaten team in major college
football. The Warriors rallied from 21 points down to beat
Washington 38-25. Colt Brennan threw five TD passes while
completing 42-of-50 passes for 442 yards.
-- The 13th-ranked Arizona Sun Devils kept their Fiesta Bowl
hopes alive with a 20-17 victory over Arizona, their third straight
Territorial Cup victory. Rudy Carpenter threw for 247 yards and two
-- Freshman wide receiver James Rodgers ran 25 yards around end
for the go-ahead touchdown and Oregon State beat 18th-ranked Oregon
38-31 in double overtime.
-- Freshman Harvey Unga ran for 161 yards and scored four
touchdowns to lead 21st-ranked Brigham Young to a 48-27 victory
over San Diego State.
