There won't be many Penn State football fans in San Antonio, Texas, to remember the Alamo Bowl. When the Nittany Lions were 9-0 in late October, they looked like they would be playing for No. 1 in New Orleans at the Sugar Bowl. But three straight losses in November landed them in San Antonio for the middle-tier Alamo Bowl on Dec. 28. Throw in a Texas location that doesn't have the 80-degree temperatures of Florida or Louisiana, and it's easy to see why the Alamo Bowl has generated the lowest interest by the Penn State faithful in 20 years.

Talk about opposite ends of the coaching spectrum. Penn State's Joe Paterno is preparing for his 500th game at the school in the Alamo Bowl against Texas A&M, whose Gary Darnell will coach in his first and last game at the school. The Aggies yesterday accepted the bid to play the Nittany Lions (8-4) in San Antonio, Texas, on Dec. 29. Paterno, who will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame tomorrow, has been the Lions' head coach for 42 years. Darnell, on the other hand, will coach the Aggies only for the bowl game.

Texas quarterback Colt McCoy was cleared yesterday to play in the Alamo Bowl. McCoy's status was in doubt after he severely pinched a nerve in his neck in the final minute of a 12-7 loss to Texas A & M on Nov. 24. The Longhorns will face Iowa on Dec. 30 in San Antonio. McCoy, a redshirt freshman, set a school record this season with 27 touchdown passes. He passed for 2,262 yards and threw seven interceptions this season. In another matter, Texas cornerback Aaron Ross was taken to a hospital after police found him disoriented outside of a restaurant and found minor damage to his car. He was later released.

They weren't playing for the prize that seemed near enough to touch when they won the first nine games of the season and rose to No. 2 in the polls, yet that didn't prevent the Penn State Nittany Lions from letting loose and forgetting their troubles with an old-fashioned blowout of a party. With all-American linebacker LaVar Arrington and defensive end Justin Kurpeikis wrecking Texas A&M's bland offense, and quarterback Rashard Casey both efficient and dazzling in his first start, Penn State tore through the Aggies, 24-0, last night before 65,380 in the Alamo Bowl.

After appearing in eight consecutive New Year's bowl games, Penn State yesterday accepted an invitation to play in the Alamo Bowl, against an opponent from the Big Twelve Conference, on Dec. 28 in San Antonio, Texas. The Nittany Lions, who hoped to compete for the national championship on Jan. 4 in the Sugar Bowl after winning their first nine games, will likely face either Texas A&M or Oklahoma. Texas is considered an outside possibility as an opponent. Penn State was ranked second before losing its final three games in the Big Ten Conference, to Minnesota, Michigan and Michigan State, by a total of 12 points.

In his own way, each Penn State football player has had to search for ways to live with the stunning disappointment of a season that will be more vividly remembered for its depressing November than for the giddy Saturdays of September and October. This was supposed to be the Nittany Lions' year, perhaps coach Joe Paterno's final legitimate shot at the glory that comes with finishing No. 1. College football publications said so. The players themselves said so. And so did the team's roster, flooded with 12 hardened seniors who had had enough of what had been, by Penn State's standards, subpar seasons.

Remember the Alamo in 1999? Penn State is going back to San Antonio, Texas, to play in the Alamo Bowl for the first time in eight years after being selected yesterday as the Big Ten Conference representative. The Nittany Lions' Big Twelve Conference opponent will be announced tomorrow evening and is expected to be either 8-4 Texas Tech or 7-5 Texas A&M. Penn State beat the Aggies, 24-0, in the 1999 Alamo Bowl. This season's version will be played at 8 p.m. Dec. 29 and will be televised on ESPN.

Joe Paterno signed a five-year contract extension yesterday, and the 73-year-old Penn State coach said he had every intention of staying through 2004. "I enjoy coaching and would like to continue as long as my health will permit," Paterno said in a statement. "I look forward to fulfilling this contract and, deep down, to going even longer, because I'm excited by all of the positive things that are happening at Penn State. " The university did not release the terms of the contract.

With Wisconsin (9-3) accepting a bid yesterday to play in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1, Penn State (8-4) is more likely headed to the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29. Of course, there are still plenty of scenarios left that could either bounce the Nittany Lions up to the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1 or down to the Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 28. The main factors are idle Ohio State (11-1) and Illinois (9-3). If either No. 1 Missouri or No. 2 West Virginia loses on Saturday, the No. 3 Buckeyes would likely slide into the BCS championship game.

Iowa officials accepted an invitation yesterday for the school's football team to play in the Alamo Bowl. The Hawkeyes will face one of three Pacific Ten Conference teams - Arizona, Arizona State or California - in the New Year's Eve game at the 65,000-seat Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Iowa got the bid despite finishing eighth in the Big Ten Conference at 3-5. The Hawkeyes' 6-5 overall record, which they reached by winning their final four games, gave them enough victories to qualify for a bowl.

CHIP KELLY'S fingerprints are all over this game. He obviously coached and recruited Oregon's upper-classmen, before coming to the Eagles after the 2012 season. But Kelly also is good friends with Ohio State coach Urban Meyer. They have exchanged concepts, philosophies and probably recipes at least since Meyer was at Utah (2003-04) and Kelly was an assistant at New Hampshire. "For Chip Kelly, to create a culture - and [Bill] Belichick talks about it all the time - where everyone's aligned.

David Ash threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes, the last a 36-yard strike to Marquise Goodman with 2 minutes, 24 seconds left, to give Texas a 31-27 comeback victory over No. 15 Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl in Austin, Texas, on Saturday night. The Longhorns (9-4) never led before Goodman scored his second touchdown on a deep post pattern, one snap after Texas converted a fourth-and-1 play to keep its chances alive. Storm Woods ran for 118 yards and scored two touchdowns for Oregon State (9-4)

MIAMI - The West Virginia Mountaineers were tough to slow down in this year's Orange Bowl. Playing before a national TV audience late Wednesday night, the No. 23-ranked Mountaineers set a bowl scoring record in a stunning, 70-33 rout of No. 14 Clemson.

A pivotal play came in the second quarter when safety Darwin Cook returned a fumble 99 yards for a touchdown to break the game open. The score was one of five Mountaineer touchdowns in the second quarter, including three in the final 2:29 for a 49-20 lead.

MIAMI - The West Virginia Mountaineers were tough to slow down, and only the Orange Bowl mascot could stop Darwin Cook. Geno Smith tied the record for any bowl game with six touchdown passes, and the No. 23-ranked Mountaineers set a bowl scoring record last night with their high-powered offense. But safety Cook made the pivotal play by returning a fumble 99 yards for a touchdown to break the game open and help beat No. 14 Clemson, 70-33. Cook collided comically with mascot Obie after scoring one of the Mountaineers' five TDs in the second quarter, including three in the final 2:29 for a 49-20 lead.

The lawyer for Mike Leach said the suspended Texas Tech coach did nothing wrong in the way he treated a player with a "mild" concussion, and Leach wants a court's help to allow him to coach in the Alamo Bowl game against Michigan State on Saturday. The motion for a temporary restraining order was filed yesterday in Lubbock, Texas. A hearing was set for this morning in District Court. University officials suspended Leach on Monday while the school investigates a complaint from receiver Adam James and his family.

Texas Tech suspended Mike Leach yesterday while the school investigated complaints from receiver Adam James and his family about how the coach treated the player after a concussion.

Texas Tech officials declined to identify the player, but James' family released a statement to the Associated Press identifying Adam as the player involved.

Come Sept. 5, Penn State fans at Beaver Stadium may have to excuse Sean Lee. The Nittany Lions' fifth-year senior linebacker may get emotional before the season opener with Akron. "Whenever I look at the [college football] magazines or anything college football, I start thinking about the season," Lee said yesterday at the Penn State Football Fantasy Camp. "I get hyped up, worked up, pumped up. My adrenaline starts pumping. " Lee gets so jazzed that the 6-foot-2, 236-pound Pittsburgh native shies away from watching ESPN's College Football Live.

Chase Daniel threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin on Missouri's first possession of overtime last night as the No. 25 Tigers defeated No. 22 Northwestern, 30-23, in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. After the Tigers (10-4) scored, their defense sacked C.J. Bacher and forced a fumble that left Northwestern (9-4) with fourth-and-goal from the 32-yard line. His desperation heave into the end zone was knocked down. In other college news: At Birmingham, Ala., Mike Teel passed for 319 yards and Rutgers (8-5)
