USC's final shot at making at least the score respectable ended on yet another poorly thrown Max Wittek pass and another nice play by Georgia Tech Quayshawn Nealy. The only difference this time was that instead of Wittek's pass hitting Nealy in the chest, the linebacker leaped up to tip the pass and Jamal Charles came up with the interception. Georgia Tech then ran out the clock for its 21-7 win, which ended a seven-game bowl losing streak. Wittek completed 14 of 37 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown with three interceptions.

Nightmares aren't wiped out in 40 minutes. But you have to start somewhere to ease, if not erase, the memory of a school-record, 26-loss season. The USC men's basketball team took that initial step in the opener against overmatched Coppin State, winning, 87-73, on Friday night at Galen Center. Center Omar Oraby and guards Byron Wesley and J.T. Terrell combined for 50 points for the Trojans, and the 7-foot-2 Oraby, a transfer from Rice, immediately showed his ability. He had 16 points, six rebounds and three blocked shots.
