Despite its cloudy season, Penn State still has a chance to land in the sun. That is, the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. John Folmer, chairman of the Sun Bowl team selection committee, yesterday confirmed that the Dec. 24 bowl was interested in extending an invitation to the 5-4 Nittany Lions. Folmer also said Penn State has indicated its interest in going. Of course, there is at least one catch: State must win Saturday's game against Pitt at Beaver Stadium, a win that would assure the Nittany Lions of a winning season.

Southern California was ranked No. 1 at the beginning of the season, and Matt Barkley was a strong contender for the Heisman Trophy. The year ended with Barkley on the sideline as the Trojans lost to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. Tevin Washington threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score to lead the Yellow Jackets (7-7) to a 21-7 victory on Monday in front of a crowd of 47,922 at Sun Bowl Stadium. Barkley, the first three-time captain in team history, injured his right shoulder in a loss to UCLA and was not cleared to play.

Sun Bowl officials, who have been hinting they would invite Pitt or Penn State to the Dec. 24 game, also are courting Army. John Folmer, the selection committee chairman, told the Pittsburgh Press that the El Paso, Texas-based bowl likes Army because the Army-Navy game attracts high TV ratings, and there are two major military installations in El Paso. The Sun Bowl is entering the option year of its contracts with CBS-TV and bowl sponsor John Hancock Life Insurance. It is likely that a Southeastern Conference team will face either Army, Pitt or Penn State.

Former Buffalo coach Turner Gill officially became the head coach at Kansas yesterday. Kansas will formally introduce Gill as successor to Mark Mangino today. Mangino, the most successful Kansas coach in 100 years, resigned under pressure on Dec. 3 after a 2-week investigation into alleged mistreatment of players. Just 2 years earlier, Mangino had been consensus national coach of the year following a 12-1 campaign and a victory in the Orange Bowl. Gill is no stranger to the Big 12, having been an option quarterback for Nebraska in the early 1980s.

OFFICIALS DEMANDED more details Wednesday about the security threat that prompted the University of Texas System to block a boxing match in El Paso. City leaders were stunned to learn a June 16 fight between WBC world middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., of Mexico, and Andy Lee , of Ireland, could not go on as planned at the 51,500-seat Sun Bowl stadium, which also hosts the UTEP Miners football team and the annual Sun Bowl game. The UT system said Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa made the decision on Tuesday based on a "higher than normal" risk assessment but released no details.

Humbled, injured, taunted and tired, Jamar Fletcher still got in the last word on UCLA star wide receiver Freddie Mitchell. "We got the win, so we all got the last laugh," Wisconsin's star cornerback said after his midfield interception with a minute left preserved the Badgers' 21-20 victory over the battered Bruins in the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. Never mind, Fletcher said, that Mitchell walked away with the Most Valuable Player award after catching nine passes for a Sun Bowl-record 180 yards, including a 64-yard TD reception.

If you're reading this expecting to get a bunch of ideas about games you can watch tonight, you're about to be disappointed. There aren't any. Tonight, you're supposed to sing Christmas carols and hang stockings. The Sixers aren't playing, the Flyers aren't playing, there are no NFL or college bowl games. There are no big college basketball games - OK, La Salle is playing out in Hawaii, but the game isn't even on the radio, so unless you want to hop on a plane, you're not going to be able to follow that.

Three points, 20 punts and 10 sacks. Go ahead and say it was unsightly, but Oregon State coach Mike Riley saw nothing short of a masterpiece in El Paso, Texas. In the lowest-scoring major bowl game in a half-century, No. 24 Oregon State shut down No. 18 Pittsburgh, 3-0, in the Sun Bowl on Justin Kahut's 44-yard field goal late in the first half yesterday. The Beavers (9-4) improved to 5-0 in bowls since Riley began his second stint as their coach in 2003. "When you talk about our defense, that was a beautiful performance against a running back that some said was one of the best in the country," Riley said.

For a few precious minutes, UCLA had visions of a second straight shocking upset over Southern California at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. Then reality set in. Mark Sanchez passed for 269 yards and two touchdowns, USC's hard-hitting defense stuffed UCLA at every turn, and the fifth-ranked Trojans won, 28-7, yesterday to give them nine victories in the last 10 games between the crosstown rivals. The win assured Southern Cal (11-1, 8-1 Pac-10) of an unprecedented seventh consecutive BCS bid, seven straight 11-win seasons and seven conference championships in a row. It will also make a fourth straight appearance in the Rose Bowl game, where they will meet No. 6 Penn State on New Year's Day. UCLA stunned USC, 13-9, as a 13 1/2-point underdog two years ago at the Rose Bowl, bouncing the Trojans out of the BCS title game.

South Carolina and Houston put on a record-setting offensive show for the first 30 minutes of the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn. The Gamecocks provided the defense when it mattered most. Defensive end Jordin Lindsey came up with two turnovers for a defense that slowed down Houston in the second half, and South Carolina beat the Cougars, 44-36, yesterday for its first bowl victory under coach Steve Spurrier. "I still believe our defense can play a lot better," Spurrier said.
