Matt Barkley engineered a game-winning drive at Ohio State early in the season, but the freshman could not muster similar magic in Saturday's 21-17 loss to Arizona in the regular-season finale at the Coliseum. When USC got the ball with just over three minutes left, Coach Pete Carroll said he told Barkley, "This is a great opportunity. I can't wait to watch you do it." Barkley, however, was sacked on first down and three passes fell incomplete. After Arizona turned the ball over on downs, the Trojans had one final opportunity with three seconds left.

The player most worthy of winning the Heisman Trophy? That would be Toby Gerhart of Stanford. The player who will win the Heisman? That's a lot tougher call. Only one of the three other players who could win it had a star-quality game Saturday. Mark Ingram of Alabama rushed for 113 yards and three touchdowns in 28 carries as the Crimson Tide routed top-ranked Florida. Meanwhile, Florida's Tim Tebow , even with 247 yards passing and 63 yards running, could put only 13 points on the board.

at No. 6 Boise State 42, New Mexico State 7: Doug Martin had four touchdown runs and the sixth-ranked Broncos (13-0, 8-0) beat the Aggies (3-10, 1-7) in a Western Athletic Conference game. Boise State finishes the regular season undefeated for the second consecutive season. "I think our record speaks for itself," said Coach Chris Petersen, whose team was 12-0 last year only to be left out of college football's big-money bowl games. "We have faith in this system and think that it should work out."

East Carolina 38, No. 18 Houston 32: Dominique Lindsay and Giavanni Ruffin each ran for two touchdowns and the defense hung in against a powerful offense to help the Pirates (9-4) beat the Cougars (10-3) in the Conference USA championship game at Greenville, N.C. Dwayne Harris also had a big day with 123 yards receiving and a 22-yard touchdown catch. Case Keenum had a big day for Houston, completing 56 of 75 passes for a title-game-record 527 yards and five touchdowns. James Cleveland had 19 catches for another game-record of 241 yards.

Leonard Washington is not with the USC basketball team on its first trip of the season -- and for the young and inexperienced Trojans, who were soundly defeated, 69-50, Thursday by No. 2-ranked Texas, that's a painful reality. The 6-foot-7, 230-pound forward, with explosive moves and a powerful front-line presence, is the more glaring of two notable absences. He's ineligible for the first semester because he could not maintain high enough grades during his freshman year.

Kansas Coach Mark Mangino resigned Thursday in the wake of an investigation into his treatment of his players, stepping down just two years after leading the Jayhawks to the greatest season in their checkered football history. The university made the announcement as Athletic Director Lew Perkins informed the players of the news. The school said last month it would probe Mangino's alleged verbal and emotional abuse of players. In the following days, many former players described insensitive, humiliating remarks they claim he made to them in the heat of games or practice, often in front of others.

Rankman's No. 1 team since Day 1, the Texas Foghorns, can see the lighthouse at the end of the channel even if some would argue they're only the second-best team in Texas located off Interstate 35. And Florida, Rankman's No. 2 since Day 2, has only to beat Alabama in Atlanta to play in its third Bowl Championship Series title game since 2006. Texas versus Florida at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 7: Who could have predicted that, other than everybody? Nebraska, which faces Texas in Saturday's Big 12 Conference title game, is the only hope left to knock this season off its axis.

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)

Notre Dame fired Charlie Weis, Florida State pushed Bobby Bowden down retirement's elevator shaft, a Florida defender needs a public defender after being charged with an SUI (snoozing under the influence) and Tiger Woods ran into a tree and then a lot more. We're not sure how this weekend could be more exciting than this week's beginning, but here's the setup: College football's last regular-season stand begins tonight in Oregon, where the schools that played to a 0-0 tie in a 1983 game dubbed "the toilet bowl" are 26 years later meeting in the second biggest Civil War contested.
