RYAN RADCLIFF threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Cody Wilson with 5:11 remaining to give Central Michigan the lead, and Western Kentucky was stopped on fourth down when a field goal would have tied the game in the final minute, giving the Chippewas a 24-21 win in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl on Wednesday night in Detroit. Lance Guidry, coaching the Hilltoppers on an interim basis before Bobby Petrino takes over, decided to play for the win on fourth-and-2 from the 19 with 51 seconds left, but Kawaun Jakes threw incomplete.

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Sixty seems to be the magic number for Temple's basketball team. The Owls have yet to allow 60 in a game all season and have not lost a game in which they have scored 60. That was the case again last night as the Owls defeated Central Michigan, 65-53, in the Chippewas' home opener, in which the new McGuirk Arena was christened. "I think it is a very important win for us," coach Fran Dunphy said. "It is an important time for us. We didn't play particularly well in Orlando [in the Old Spice Classic last week]

In another blow to the diminished prestige of the Big Ten, Michigan State lost at home to Central Michigan, 29-27, yesterday afternoon. Handed a second chance to make the winning field goal because of an offside penalty on the Spartans' Colin Neely, Andrew Aguila kicked a 42-yarder with three seconds left for the winning points. Central Michigan star Dan LeFevour, who became the Mid-American Conference's all-time leader in total offense, threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Paris Cotton with 32 seconds left.

The first Mid-American Conference game of the season will take place Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field, where defending champion Central Michigan will visit Temple, which was the preseason choice to take the title this year. Both teams bring 1-0 records into the nationally televised game on ESPNU. Central Michigan, which opened with a 33-0 win over Hampton last week, has claimed the MAC championship three times in the last four years. The Chippewas, who compete in the MAC West Division, are playing under first-year coach Dan Enos.

After his team opened its season Friday with an exhilarating victory over Villanova in the Mayor's Cup at Lincoln Financial Field, Temple football coach Al Golden slept in his office at Edberg-Olson Hall. "I watched film of the Villanova game - offense, defense, and special teams - and I slept well but not for long," said Golden, adding that his staff members who had gone home for the night were back at work at 6 a.m. There was no time to waste. Central Michigan, the defending Mid-American Conference champion, will visit 2009 MAC East cochampion Temple on Thursday.

Many obstacles stood in the way of a successful home opener for Temple: The loss of the Owls' inside presence, Micheal Eric, who is out for six weeks with an injured right kneecap. The inactivity of Temple's emotional leader, Scootie Randall, who has yet to play this season after surgery on his left knee. And the fact that without the 6-foot-11 Eric, the Owls only have two active players taller than 6-6. But none of that mattered Saturday. Undersized Temple still defeated the Central Michigan, 86-74, at the Liacouras Center.

The last time Temple's football team started 2-0 was 1981. Since then, 11 teams from North Broad Street were in position to change that and didn't. The last time the Owls had won seven consecutive home games was 1940-41, which is also the school record. The last time they'd won in overtime was . . . well, never, in six tries. Last night at Lincoln Financial Field, in front of 15,152, this Temple team took care of all three history lessons in one swing of a right leg. Last Friday, sophomore Brandon McManus beat defending FCS national champion Villanova with a last-second field goal, his fourth of the game.

The opening month of the season provides no shortage of advancement opportunities for Temple's ever-emerging football fortunes. First, the Owls had to get past that annoying Villanova hump. Nobody said by how much. Next Saturday, Connecticut comes here. The same UConn that beat them in 2007 in Stoors, when an apparent late Temple touchdown was not called one by either the officials on the field or those in the replay booth. The Huskies also took the 2008 rematch at Lincoln Financial Field, in overtime, after billboards had vowed to get JusTice.

IN THE FALL OF 2008, Chris Maragos and J.J. Watt were walk-ons at the University of Wisconsin, Watt having transferred back to his home state after not getting much playing time as a freshman tight end at Central Michigan, Maragos having left Western Michigan in search of a bigger stage. Watt - shifted to defense and still growing into his 6-5, 289-pound frame - sat out the season under NCAA transfer rules, but a few practices taught Maragos a lot about the man who remains his friend and offseason workout companion.

La Salle's Kyle Shurmur, a strong-armed junior quarterback, committed Friday to play at Vanderbilt after taking an unofficial visit this week to the school. "So excited for my opportunity to play at Vanderbilt. Thanks to all the people that have helped me throughout," he tweeted Friday night. The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder chose the Commodores over several other Division I schools, including Cincinnati, Illinois, Pittsburgh, and Temple. "He was waiting to find the school he felt most comfortable with," La Salle coach Drew Gordon said.

If there is an ideal candidate for the Eagles to draft with the No. 4 overall pick, it just might be Eric Fisher. The Central Michigan tackle may be as close as there is in this draft to a "can't-miss" prospect. He fills an immediate need for the Eagles on the offensive line, and he projects as the eventual heir at left tackle, one that could anchor the unit for 10 years. It sounds almost too good to be true. In fact, Fisher may be too good for it to be true. Once given a mid-first-round grade by analysts, Fisher catapulted into the top 10 after a Senior Bowl performance that quelled concerns about his having played in a less-prominent conference.

With less than three weeks left until the NFL draft, there are 10 players the Eagles could conceivably select with the No. 4 overall pick, assuming they don't trade down. Here they are, ranked according to how likely they are to be Chip Kelly's first selection as coach, taking into account their availability when the Eagles pick. 1. Eric Fisher, tackle, Central Michigan. Momentum has gathered behind the idea that Fisher is the No. 1 tackle in the draft. Mike Mayock of NFL Network recently slotted him ahead of Luke Joeckel, who was once viewed as a lock to be the first offensive lineman off the board.

MOBILE, Ala. - The Eagles will have questions at quarterback next season, but the health of their offensive line will be equally worrisome. Three of their starters on the line, including all-pro left tackle Jason Peters, will be trying to bounce back from season-ending injuries. And two of them - Peters and right tackle Todd Herremans - will be 31 this year. The situation screams for the Eagles to select a lineman early in the draft, possibly with the fourth overall pick. For the first time in 14 years, the team entered Senior Bowl week with a high draft pick, but none of the prospects projected to go in the top five, or even the top 10, were scheduled to be in Alabama.

Manti Te'o had two interceptions as No. 11 Notre Dame picked off five Michigan passes, and backup quarterback Tommy Rees sparked the Fighting Irish offense in a 13-6 win over the 18th-ranked Wolverines Saturday night in South Bend, Ind. Denard Robinson, who amassed 948 yards of total offense in victories over the Irish last two years, was less effective this time as the Irish repeatedly forced him into mistakes. He threw four interceptions in the first half, then lost a fumble at the Notre Dame 8-yard line on the first drive of the second half.

AS A NATIONAL brand, Notre Dame is always going to be relevant. Ask the ACC. But being a competitive factor at the highest level is another subject. Lou Holtz came within a last-play field goal of winning a second national title in 1993. He went 23-11-1 in his final three seasons. Since then, the Fighting Irish have been to three BCS bowls. They've lost each by an average of 38-13. The highlights of the last 2 decades? Well, Tyrone Willingham did win his first eight games, before losing 16 of his last 31. And Charlie Weis was in the Top 10 late in both of his first two seasons.

  Sean Mannion threw for 276 yards and a touchdown, Oregon State's defense smothered Wisconsin's Montee Ball, and the Beavers upset No. 13 Wisconsin, 10-7, Saturday in Corvallis, Ore. Mannion connected with Brandin Cooks on a 20-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half to give the Beavers a 10-0 lead, then turned it over to an Oregon State defense that forced two turnovers and held Ball to 61 yards rushing. The win snapped Wisconsin's 33-game nonconference winning streak, the second-longest in the country behind Louisiana State's.
