In a setback for the hopes of college football's mid-major conferences, No. 10 Texas Christian lost its first game last night, falling to Southern Mississippi, 40-28. The Horned Frogs didn't go easily, rebounding from a 31-6 deficit to close within 34-28 with three minutes to go. A fumble by quarterback Brandon Hassell ended their hopes. The loss dropped the Horned Frogs to 10-1 (7-1 in Conference USA) and left Oklahoma as the nation's only undefeated team. The Golden Eagles, who got three touchdown passes from Dustin Almond, are 8-3 and 7-0.

Texas Christian University accepted an invitation to join the Big Twelve Conference after dropping its commitment to move to the Big East next year. The Horned Frogs will become a member on July 1, TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said. TCU will rekindle former Southwest Conference rivalries with Texas, Baylor and Texas Tech after the school's board of trustees unanimously accepted the Big Twelve's Oct. 6 invitation, Del Conte said. The TCU football team has qualified for postseason bowl games in 12 of the last 13 seasons and last year became the first school from a non-automatic-qualifying conference to play in two consecutive Bowl Championship Series games.

Temple senior forward Craig Williams has transferred to Texas Christian, according to the Horned Frogs' website. Williams, a 6-9, 240-pounder, redshirted last season with the Owls after suffering a preseason foot injury. He will be eligible this season for TCU. The native of Christiansted, St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, played 61 games over three seasons with Temple, starting 13 times. As a sophomore in 2008-09, he averaged 5.3 points and 3.0 rebounds. As a junior, he averaged 3.8 points and 1.8 rebounds.

It wasn't enough for Notre Dame to take the home court from Texas Christian. The Irish went and stole the Horned Frogs' game plan, too. Pat Garrity scored 20 points last night as Notre Dame outran Texas Christian for an 82-72 victory in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament. Pete Miller was 5-for-6 from three-point range and finished with 16 points for the Irish, who reached the quarterfinals. The Horned Frogs (22-13) were already angry at having to travel despite having a better record and drawing a bigger crowd in the first round, and the Irish did nothing to improve their mood.

TCU in the BCS? Southern Mississippi put an end to any debate by fighting off a frantic comeback attempt by the visiting Horned Frogs.

TCU SENIOR guard Hank Thorns sent a tweet a few hours before playing No. 11 UNLV about never experiencing the thrill of being surrounded by Horned Frogs fans on the court after a big victory. He needed to do an update afterward. Thorns scored eight of his 32 points in overtime for host TCU, which overcame an 18-point deficit for a 102-97 victory over UNLV last night. It was the first win for TCU (15-10, 5-4 Mountain West) over a ranked team since February 2007, when it beat No. 14 Air Force.

TCU accepted an invitation to join the Big 12 last night, ignoring the conference's recent instability and seizing an opportunity to be a part of a league with natural geographic rivals. Chancellor Victor Boschini Jr. made the expected announcement in front a packed room of more than 200 people, and athletic director Chris Del Conte fought back tears as he recalled receiving the phone call from the Horned Frogs' new conference last week. "This is living proof that dreams do come true," he said.

Kenny Irons ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns and No. 2 Auburn knocked away a last-chance pass to keep its unbeaten season alive with a 24-17 victory over host South Carolina last night. The Tigers (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) held the ball the entire third quarter. South Carolina (3-2, 1-2) drove to the Tigers' 6 in the final minute. However, on fourth down, South Carolina quarterback Syvelle Newton's floater to Sidney Rice was batted away by Patrick Lee with 19 seconds left.

Add Lamar Odom's name to the list of players who made special college debuts. The 6-11 sophomore hit the game-winning shot with 5.4 seconds left and came within an assist of a triple double last night as No. 23 Rhode Island beat No. 25 Texas Christian, 87-85, in the inaugural CoSIDA Classic at the Providence (R.I.) Civic Center. "I was very nervous. I was just trying to be aggressive," Odom said. Odom, who attended Rhode Island last year as a non-matriculating student, showed his versatility, becoming the team's principal ballhandler when starting point guard Preston Murphy went down with an ankle injury late in the first half.

WHEN YOUR offensive line averages 322 pounds and is renowned for playing the sort of smashmouth football that supposedly went out of style a couple of decades ago, it can be easy for a running back to rationalize that maybe he needs to bulk up, too, if for no other reason than to fit in with all those road graders up front. So Wisconsin tailback Montee Ball ate his way up to 225 pounds last season, the idea being that he'd be a more powerful runner between the tackles, better able to move the pile on those third-and-short plays at which the Badgers traditionally are so successful.

BOISE, Idaho - TCU's Casey Pachall threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Carter with 1:05 left, then connected with Josh Boyce on a go-ahead two-point conversion - and Boise State's Dan Goodale missed a 39-yard field goal as time expired - to give the Horned Frogs a 36-35 victory Saturday against the fifth-ranked Broncos. Pachall threw for 473 yards and tossed long scores of 75, 74, and 69 yards in the first half. But his most important throws came in the final minutes, when he rallied TCU (8-2, 5-0 Mountain West)

THE BIG EAST, following yesterday's conference call of the 14 presidents and chancellors, has announced it is considering a 12-team expansion model for football. In that scenario, Temple and Villanova could be in the mix. Also, sources have indicated that one possibility conference officials have discussed is the addition of Boise State for football only, which would obviously help in terms of BCS status. That, of course, is why TCU originally was added, but the Horned Frogs just detoured last night to the Big 12, not coincidentally, only a month after Pittsburgh and Syracuse said they were leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Luck was 20 of 28 for 290 yards with touchdown passes of 60 and 3 yards to Coby Fleener, 10 yards to Chris Owusu, and 3 yards to Zach Ertz. Lee Butler returned an interception 76 yards for a touchdown to pull Duke to 10-7 late in the first half.
