Texas College Football Bowl Results

Five down one to go!

Check out the results:




(5) Wisconsin 19 - (11-2, 7-1 Big Ten)
(3) TCU 21 - (13-0, 8-0 MWC)

TCU denies Wisconsin on late 2-point try to win Rose Bowl - When Tank Carder leaped with perfect timing and swatted Wisconsin's final pass to the turf, the TCU linebacker felt as if he got a boost from every player at every school that never even imagined playing in the Rose Bowl.  Sure, these unbeaten Horned Frogs realized they couldn't win the national title. They still celebrated their perfection on the hallowed Pasadena turf in the name of all the little guys outside the monolithic powers of major college football.  Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score, Carder batted down a 2-point conversion pass attempt with 2 minutes to play, and third-ranked TCU hung on to beat Wisconsin 21-19 on Saturday.  READ MORE



Army 16 - (7-6, 5-2 away)
SMU 14 - (7-7, 6-2 C-USA)

Army Hangs On To Edge SMU, 16-14 - Second-year coach Rich Ellerson already has a season to cherish at Army. Josh McNary and 24 other seniors get to leave on a winning note.  McNary scooped up a fumble and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown and Army held on to beat SMU 16-14 in the Armed Forces Bowl on Thursday, giving the Black Knights their first winning season since 1996.   READ MORE



BYU 52 - (7-6, 5-3 MWC)
UTEP 24 - (6-7, 3-5 C-USA)

Jake Heaps tosses four TDs as BYU takes care of UTEP - Jake Heaps is BYU's bowl-winning quarterback, and that's no easy feat for a freshman.  Heaps threw four touchdown passes, connecting with Cody Hoffman on three scores, and finished with 264 yards passing to help BYU beat overmatched Texas-El Paso 52-24 on Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl.   READ MORE



Northwestern 38 - (7-6, 3-5 Big Ten)
Texas Tech 45 - (8-5, 3-5 Big 12)

Taylor Potts accounts for five touchdowns as Texas Tech tops Northwestern - Tommy Tuberville knew better. The last two onside kicks he called this season were returned for touchdowns. The most recent came in this very stadium.  The thing is, he just couldn't help himself.  Leading Northwestern by three touchdowns late in the third quarter, the Texas Tech coach tried it again -- and it backfired again, setting up an exciting finish in the inaugural TicketCity Bowl.  The Wildcats rallied to get within a touchdown twice in the fourth quarter and were driving for a tie or win when the Red Raiders intercepted a heave on the final play, preserving a 45-38 victory and allowing Tuberville to joke about his risky move.   READ MORE



Illinois 38 - (7-6, 4-4 Big Ten)
Baylor 14 - (7-6, 4-4 Big 12)

Mikel Leshoure leads Illinois to first bowl win since 1999 - Mikel Leshoure isn't sure whether he'll declare for the NFL draft or return to Illinois for his senior season.  But if Wednesday night's Texas Bowl ends up being his college send-off it will certainly be remembered as a good one.  Leshoure ran for 184 yards and a career-high three touchdowns and set five school records as Illinois earned its first bowl victory since 1999, beating Baylor 38-14.  The Illini spoiled the Bears' first bowl appearance in 16 seasons. Both teams finished at 7-6.   READ MORE



Cotton Bowl Preview
(11) LSU - (10-2, 6-2 SEC)
(17) Texas A&M - (9-3, 6-2 Big 12)

LSU had the misfortune of playing in the same conference as top-ranked Auburn, which won the SEC and earned the league's automatic berth to a BCS bowl.  Texas A&M finished in a first-place tie in the Big 12 South, but its BCS fate was decided by a computer.  These programs renew their rivalry in the 75th edition of the Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium on Friday.   READ MORE
