Southern Mississippi's win in the New Orleans Bowl was a lot like the rest of the Golden Eagles' season -- a struggle. Shawn Nelson caught a pair of second-half touchdowns, and Cody Hull had 161 yards rushing to lead Southern Mississippi over Arkansas State, 31-19, Tuesday night in the first of the season's 28 bowl games. Southern Mississippi endured plenty of turmoil long before arriving in Lafayette, where the New Orleans Bowl was moved because of Hurricane Katrina.

All Eastern Michigan can do now is wait. The EMUs did their job -- losing to Akron, 21-28, to finish the season with a perfect 0-12 record. But the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky (0-11) refuse to go away, no matter how much their fans would like them to. Wacky WKU fell, 23-29, to 4-7 Florida Atlantic to run its losing streak to 19 games, longest in the nation. And WKU vaulted into a first-place tie with the EMUs. The Bottom Ten title will be decided one way or another by Western Kentucky's finale tonight against No. 16 Arkansas State (3-8)

Like a bloated uncle stuffing one last forkful of mashed potatoes into his mouth, USC has concluded the feasting portion of its season. For the better part of two months, the Trojans have gobbled up nonconference opponents the likes of San Diego State and Loyola Marymount, fattening their record for the long, hard Pacific 10 Conference schedule to come.

No way could the San Diego State Aztecs lose now. Could they? Arthur Massey had the game of his life--no, the eight minutes of his life. The Aztec team that showed up Friday at the San Diego Sports Arena was colder than the night outside, and Massey had personally injected some heat. And now Arkansas State's Brian Reaves was at the free-throw line with the Aztecs ahead by two--thanks to Marty Dow's basket with two seconds left.

A former Arkansas state employee, saying she wanted to restore her "good reputation," charged Friday that then-Gov. Bill Clinton made sexual advances toward her in his hotel room during a 1991 conference in Little Rock. The charges by Paula Jones at a press conference here are the latest in a series of allegations of sexual misconduct that have plagued Clinton since he began his drive for the presidency in 1992.

It isn't easy to lose to a team with a 3-8 record. But Western Kentucky pulled off that feat in dramatic fashion, blowing a 20-3 third-quarter lead to fall, 20-24, to Arkansas State. The Hilltoppers (0-12) thus chalked up their 20th straight defeat, the longest losing streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision, whatever that is. And, most important, wacky WKU captured the Bottom Ten title. Lowlights of the season included three games in which WKU gave up more than 60 points, including 68 to No. 5 North Texas, a team that finished 2-10.
