ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - All that Miami speed was no match for the
big, bad Badgers.
John Clay had 121 yards rushing and two touchdowns, powering No.
24 Wisconsin past 14th-ranked Miami 20-14 in the Champs Sports
Clay ran through, over and around the Hurricanes to help the
Badgers (10-3) earn their first victory over a ranked opponent this
season and claim a big win for the Big Ten.
Scott Tolzien threw for 260 yards, and Montee Ball added 61
yards rushing for a Wisconsin team touted as too big and too slow
for the dynamic Hurricanes.
Jacory (juh-KOHR'-ee) Harris struggled before throwing a
touchdown pass to Thearon Collier with 1:22 remaining for the
Hurricanes, who then recovered the onside kick. But Harris threw
incomplete on fourth down to end any hope of a comeback.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Temple's first bowl game in 30 years was
ruined by the UCLA Bruins.
Akeem Ayers returned an interception 2 yards for a go-ahead
touchdown in the fourth quarter and UCLA shut down Temple in the
second half for a 30-21 victory in the EagleBank Bowl.
The Bruins (7-6) rallied from a 21-7 first-half deficit to
finish with a winning record for the first time since 2006. That
mini-slump by UCLA pales in comparison to the decades of futility
endured by the Owls (9-4), whose only previous bowl appearances in
school history were the inaugural Sugar Bowl in 1935 and the Garden
State Bowl in 1979.
UCLA braved the freezing temperatures and a wind chill in the
teens to overcome a sluggish start. Kevin Prince completed 16 of 31
passes for 221 yards with two touchdowns and one interception
