TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez didn't want the score of the UCLA-Stanford game to be displayed inside Arizona Stadium, nor did he want word to leak down to the sideline.

The focus had to be on beating rival Arizona State in the Territorial Cup. If that led to the Pac-12 South title, even better.

It worked out perfectly on both counts for the Wildcats.


Stanford crushes UCLA's Pac-12 chances

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) When Kevin Hogan led Stanford onto the hallowed Rose Bowl turf for the fourth time in three years, the quarterback realized the stakes were a whole lot higher for No. 9 UCLA, which could clinch the Pac-12 South with a victory.

Hogan and the Cardinal were only playing for fun - and the two-time defending conference champions had a boatload of it while ruining the Bruins' season yet again.


Mizzou clinches spot in SEC title game

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) After three quarters smothered by Arkansas, Missouri found a way out. It's been that way most of the year, simply finding ways to get the job done.

"I just think it got contagious," coach Gary Pinkel said after finally emerging from a rowdy locker room celebrating the 21-14 victory Friday over Arkansas that sent the No. 17 Tigers to the SEC championship game for the second straight season.


Marshall loses first, 67-66 to WKU in OT

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) Western Kentucky coach Jeff Brohm didn't want a crazy game with No. 19 Marshall to go on any longer.

If he got the chance in overtime, Brohm had already decided to try a 2-point conversion instead of settling for an extra-point kick to tie it.


Missing OSU player sent concussion texts

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) A missing Ohio State University football player told his mother in a text message the day he disappeared that concussions had his head messed up, according to a report filed with police.

Kosta Karageorge, a 22-year-old senior defensive tackle from Columbus, was last seen at his apartment around 2 a.m. Wednesday. Team spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed that Karageorge missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, which his family says was uncharacteristic.


Down 17, Nebraska beats Iowa 37-34 in OT

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Nebraska found itself down 17 points and staring at a devastating third straight loss.

Tommy Armstrong Jr. led the Huskers on one of the best comebacks in school history - and took some heat off of embattled coach Bo Pelini.


Air Force hits FG at :00, ends Rams' run

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) Weston Steelhammer certainly proved he has a fitting football name and did so in the clutch against his team's biggest rival.

The sophomore safety followed a drive-ending interception late in the fourth quarter by helping stuff a fourth-and-short in the final minute.


Hokies win, bowl streak now 22 years

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Michael Brewer kept getting knocked to the turf, kept getting up, and would not let Virginia Tech lose.

The quarterback, maligned much of this season for inexplicable interceptions, threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Bucky Hodges with 1:48 remaining Friday night and Virginia Tech beat Virginia for the 11th year in a row, 24-20.


UNLV coach Hauck to step down

LAS VEGAS (AP) UNLV finally took a step forward under Bobby Hauck last year, only to backslide and cost him his job.

Hauck will step down after coaching the Rebels' season finale against Nevada on Saturday. UNLV is 2-10 this season after going to a bowl game last year for the first time since 2000.
