MATT CASSEL will be back under center as the Chiefs' starting quarterback on Thursday night at San Diego, because Brady Quinn (concussion) has not been cleared to practice. Coach Romeo Crennel said Tuesday that Ricky Stanzi will be the backup. Fullback Nate Eachus has also been ruled out with a concussion. "They will continue with their testing and evaluation and will return when the doctor releases them, and lets us know they're OK," Crennel said. Cassel started the first five games of the season before he suffered his own concussion against the Ravens.

Jimmy Clausen threw for 300 yards and two touchdowns, including a 33-yarder to Golden Tate with 5 minutes, 18 seconds left to lead Notre Dame to a 33-30 victory over Michigan State yesterday in South Bend, Ind. Kyle McCarthy intercepted a pass by Michigan State's Kirk Cousins at the 4 with 57 seconds left and the Irish held on to beat the Spartans in Notre Dame Stadium for the first time since 1993. The Irish lost star wide receiver Michael Floyd to what may be a broken collarbone.

Iowa solved Georgia Tech's explosive triple option and Ricky Stanzi threw two touchdown passes last night as the 10th-ranked Hawkeyes posted a 24-14 victory in the coldest Orange Bowl ever. Temperature at kickoff in Miami's Land Shark Stadium was 49 degrees, and Tech's offense was slow to warm up. The ninth-ranked Yellow Jackets averaged 35 points during the regular season, but their only score in the first three quarters came on Jerrard Tarrant's 40-yard interception return. "This was Hawkeye weather," Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Ricky Stanzi had been accustomed to playing the role of the younger, more inexperienced quarterback when Iowa faced off against Penn State, while leading the Hawkeyes to surprising victories the last two years over Daryll Clark and the Nittany Lions. It's different for Stanzi this season. He's the old hand, a fifth-year senior going against Penn State freshman Rob Bolden, a promising talent about 4½ years younger, ready to take the field Saturday night in front of a raucous crowd of more than 70,000 inside Kinnick Stadium.

Ricky Stanzi threw for 231 yards and two first-quarter touchdowns to lead No. 10 Iowa to a 24-14 win over No. 9 Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl in Miami last night. Playing for the first time since Nov. 7 after surgery on a badly sprained right ankle, Stanzi completed 17 of 29 passes, with one big mistake - an interception Jerrard Tarrant ran back 40 yards for a touchdown with 24 seconds left in the first quarter, Stanzi's only incompletion in his first 10 attempts. Other than that, the first half was all Iowa (11-2)

Daryll Clark held his hands together, bowed his head, and closed his eyes as if he was in prayer. And then, fighting back tears, the Penn State quarterback asked for forgiveness. The Nittany Lions fell to upset-minded Iowa, 24-23, on a last-second field goal yesterday, leaving Penn State's hopes of a national championship in jeopardy. Clark, who played a large role in the Lions' 9-0 start, struggled against the Hawkeyes. The junior framed the game with a near-fumble on Penn State's first drive and a costly interception on its last possession.

Ricky Stanzi grabbed the starting quarterback job in the fifth game of Iowa's 2008 season knowing he had the luxury of being able to hand off to Shonn Greene, one of the nation's top running backs, and not have all the responsibility on his shoulders. This year, however, Stanzi has to carry more of the load, especially with the Hawkeyes needing to somehow fill the hole left by the departure of Greene, a former star at Winslow Township High, to the NFL and the New York Jets. It's a big step for Stanzi, a 6-foot-4, 218-pound junior, especially now that the Big Ten season will begin for his team tomorrow night against fifth-ranked Penn State in the electric atmosphere that is the Beaver Stadium "whiteout.

After losing his job as Iowa's starting quarterback last season, Jake Christensen thought it best to leave the program with one season of eligibility remaining, a year he desperately wanted to use somewhere else. How desperately? This desperately: Christensen took classes totaling 42 credits at Iowa in the spring and summer to get his undergraduate degree. Twice a week during the summer, he commuted - a four-hour drive each way - between Iowa City and Charleston, Ill., home of Eastern Illinois.

This is the time of the football season that Joe Paterno dislikes. Its regular season over, Penn State must sit and wait and watch other BCS bowl contenders compete in key rivalry games and conference championship contests between now and the awarding of bowl bids Dec. 6. The Nittany Lions will watch on TV and read on the Internet about the praiseworthy achievements of these teams and their players. That buzz must influence BCS bowl committees to a considerable degree. So, with the Lions out of sight and out of mind, what's a coach to say?

It wasn't but 12 months ago that those who follow college football were looking down on the Big Ten Conference, saying that its status had slipped considerably following a 2008 postseason that saw the league post a feeble 1-6 record in bowl games. Now, as the final season before next year's start of divisional play prepares to launch with Nebraska coming in, the Big Ten has returned to the elite. It's funny what a 4-3 bowl record, including Bowl Championship Series victories by Ohio State (Rose Bowl)

Ohio State is definitely headed to the Rose Bowl, but the Buckeyes shouldn't expect Southern Cal to join them. No. 25 Stanford threw the Pac-10 season further out of kilter by jumping all over the No. 11 Trojans, 55-21, in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. Toby Gerhart rushed for 178 yards and three touchdowns as Stanford (7-3, 6-2) followed up on its 2007 upset at the Coliseum and kept itself in the conference race. "It was just will. The offensive line just moved people, Gerhart said.

It's time to take Oregon seriously. The No. 10 Ducks smashed No. 4 Southern Cal, 47-20, last night in Eugene, Ore., to take command of the Pacific Ten and get in line for a BCS bid. It was the Trojans' worst loss since 1997. Jeremiah Masoli threw for 222 yards and a touchdown and ran for 164 more yards with another score to lead the Ducks, and redshirt freshman LaMichael James ran for 184 yards and a touchdown. At 7-1 overall, Oregon is 5-0 in the Pac-10; Southern Cal fell to 6-2 and 3-2.

Ricky Stanzi connected with Marvin McNutt for a 7-yard touchdown pass as time expired as No. 7 Iowa posted a 15-13 victory over Michigan State (4-4, 3-2 Big Ten) in East Lansing, Mich. The TD came after three straight incompletions in the end zone. "He made a nice break inside, made a great grab," Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said of McNutt. The Hawkeyes are 8-0 for the first time in school history and have sole possession of first place in the Big Ten at 4-0. Iowa has won 12 straight dating to last season, the nation's second-longest streak.
