But Brees captured the award after throwing for 3,393 yards with 24 touchdown passes. Weinke won the Davey O'Brien Award for the nation's best quarterback.

Just 10 days ago, Barry Sanders reacted to the news that he had won the Heisman Trophy like a guy who was minutes away from root canal. He didn't smile, his comments were stiff, and he walked out of a Tokyo television studio before a satellite news conference with reporters could get off the ground. Yesterday, however, the wondrous Oklahoma State tailback won the Maxwell Award, given by the Maxwell Football Club of Philadelphia to the nation's outstanding college football player, and through a conference call he answered questions confidently and, for the most part, thoroughly.

Maybe Barry Sanders looked at the list of previous Maxwell Award winners before he decided to use the occasion of his selection for the 1988 award to knock down rumors he is going to bypass his senior season to play in the NFL. Sanders, Oklahoma State's Heisman Trophy-winning running back, is the first non-quarterback to win the Maxwell honor in five years. The last four awards went to Syracuse's Don McPherson, Miami's Vinny Testaverde, Iowa's Chuck Long and Boston College's Doug Flutie.

Since Penn State received a four-year postseason football ban, one of a series of harsh sanctions handed down last year by the NCAA, it has tried to find a game during the regular season that would simulate a bowl atmosphere. That game might be coming next season. A published report Tuesday said that a deal has been finalized that would allow Penn State to open its 2014 football season in Ireland against Central Florida. The Orlando Sentinel, quoting a source with knowledge of the deal, reported that the game would be played in Dublin at Croke Park.

ATLANTIC CITY - Bill O'Brien has seen much happen in the nearly 14 months since he took over as Penn State's head coach, and NCAA sanctions against the program have kept things from being stable. But O'Brien, who was at Harrah's Atlantic City Resort on Friday to receive the college coach of the year award from the Maxwell Football Club, is encouraged by what he is seeing in terms of his players' offseason work and recruiting. "I wouldn't say it's easier, but it's much more comfortable because you have a better working knowledge of your players," O'Brien said.
