  • Notre Dame's Tommy Rees (USA Today Sports)The Notre Dame offense had driven inside the Rutgers 30-yard line six times but had just 19 points to show for it. Clinging on to a three-point lead late in the fourth quarter of the Pinstripe Bowl, senior quarterback Tommy Rees, playing his final game in a Notre Dame uniform, made sure the Fighting Irish would get in the end zone to seal a win.

    Rees led the Irish on a 10-play, 79-yard touchdown drive that culminated in a Tarean Folston 3-yard touchdown run to cap off an eventual 29-16 win.

    Notre Dame outgained the Scarlet Knights 494-237 in total offense on the afternoon, but the Rutgers defense held the Fighting Irish to five Kyle Brindza field goals to keep things close.

    Both offenses were pretty even early. The score was tied at 13 at half time after Rutgers’ Kyle Federico matched two Brindza field goals, ND’s T.J. Jones scored on an 8-yard run and Rutgers’ Chas Dodd found Brandon Coleman on a 14-yard score.

    Things got sloppy on both sides, but Notre Dame took control of the game

    Washington got a glimpse of what next year could look like in the second half of Friday's Fight Hunger Bowl. And it wasn't by choice.

    Injuries to both quarterback Keith Price and running back Bishop Sankey -- players who have combined for almost 5,000 yards of total offense this season -- forced the duo out of the game, but the Huskies defense made sure that the offense didn't need to score again in a 31-16 win over BYU.

    Sankey, a Doak Walker Award finalist who entered the game with 1,775 yards rushing and had 95 yards and two touchdowns Friday, left the game in the third quarter after suffering an injury to his right hand. While he's a junior, he's requested his draft evaluation from the NFL (and gotten a third-round grade), and is expected to make his decision about turning pro soon. He was replaced by junior Jesse Callier.

    Price, a senior, was replaced by freshman Cyler Miles after he took a shot to the ribs on a third quarter run. Price went to the locker room and returned to test

    This is another dagger in the heart of the momentum theory in college football.

    Thanks to a Brisly Estime 70-yard punt return, Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt scrambled in from 12 yards out with 1:14 left to give the Orange a 21-17 win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

    If you believed in momentum, you would have thought that it was all in favor of Minnesota before Estime's return. And before it was in Minnesota's favor, you would have thought that it was squarely in Syracuse's corner.

    After being sluggish, inept, ineffective and whatever other adjective of the same ilk you would like to to use, Minnesota's offense finally awakened in the fourth quarter after the Orange had gone up 14-3. Perhaps it was because quarterback Mitch Leidner was able to find -- and take advantage of -- spots downfield in Syracuse's pass defense. Within a span of 2:30 at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Leidner found Maxx Williams for a 20-yard touchdown and Drew Wolitarsky for a 55-yard touchdown to

    Marshall's Doc Holliday sure played it conservatively in Friday's Military Bowl.

    He really had no reason to. Maryland was having issues containing his team's offense and the 31-20 scoreline in favor of Marshall shows that. But man, it could have been a much bigger win. And at the risk of sounding cliche, the original Doc Holliday would likely have not approved of the strategy even if it ultimately was successful.

    Despite piling up 475 yards of total offense on favorable field position because of its decision making, Thundering Herd punted five times inside of Maryland territory. Four of those times there were six or fewer yards to go. Included in those four is an instance of fourth-and-less-than-a-yard at the Terrapin 44 yard-line with just over 10 minutes to go in the third quarter and Marshall leading by four, 17-13.

    If there was ever a time to go for an eminently makeable first down, the opportunity to establish a two-possession lead in the second half is it.

    Texas' Mack Brown won't be the only coach leaving after the Alamo Bowl.

    Per the school, Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti will retire after the game. The 59-year-old Aliotti has been Oregon's defensive coordinator since 1999 and got his start with the Ducks as a graduate assistant after college. He was also Oregon's defensive coordinator in the early 1990s before coaching in the NFL.

    “After coaching for 38 years, it is time for a new chapter in my life and (wife) Kathryn’s,” Aliotti said in a statement. “Coaching is all I’ve ever known but it has been a labor of love and a fantastic ride.

    “I’ve coached in a lot of great games in my life but the things I’m going to miss the most are the great players and assistant coaches I have had a privilege to work with. There is never an ideal time to announce these decisions because I don’t want to take away from the attention on this final game or the focus from the players who are the ones who deserve all the credit for getting us to

    While his coach might have delivered the best one-liner about his speeding tickets, Jadeveon Clowney delivered the best photo response.

    South Carolina is in Orlando for the Capital One Bowl against Wisconsin, and Clowney posted a picture with two Orlando police officers to Twitter on Friday.

    Well done, Clowney. The defensive end was stopped Thursday for driving 84 MPH in a 55 MPH zone, less than three weeks after he was clocked going over 100 MPH.

    Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl
    Michigan vs. Kansas State
    Tempe, Ariz.
    Dec. 28, 2013

    The outlook of this game changed significantly when Michigan announced earlier this week that quarterback Devin Gardner would not play in the bowl game thanks to a broken left foot.

    With freshman Shane Morris at the helm, Michigan is not the same team. Gardner is a guy who can keep plays alive. He has the ability to create and scramble. He keeps things exciting. Without him, the Michigan offense might not be able to keep up with a Kansas State team that got significantly better as the year progressed. Even though the Wildcats only won seven games, five of those wins came in their last six games. And they even managed to score 31 points in their loss to Oklahoma.

    K-State receiver Tyler Lockett has been on a tear as of late with 444 yards and four touchdowns in his last three games and that includes 278 receiving yards against Oklahoma.

    Michigan was already the underdog in this contest, but if the Wolverines

    Russell Athletic Bowl
    Miami vs. Louisville
    Orlando, Fla.
    Dec. 28, 2013

    The year has not been kind to Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

    He started out as a Heisman hopeful, but found that his team’s schedule did nothing but hurt his chances to hoist the bronze statue. When Louisville lost to Central Florida – and consequently lost its chance at a BCS bowl berth – it seemed like Bridgewater and Louisville became a serious afterthought. Still, Louisville won 11 games – albeit several close contests – and finished the season in the Top 25. And while we don’t know whether Bridgewater will forgo his senior season for the NFL – though it’s probably likely – he’ll want to end his season on a high note, especially since he is playing against the school he nearly attended.

    Bridgewater was committed to the Hurricanes before coach Randy Shannon was fired. That’s when he switched his commitment to Louisville.

    Belk Bowl
    Cincinnati vs. North Carolina
    Charlotte, NC
    Dec. 28, 2013

    Both Cincinnati and North Carolina enter the Belk Bowl off losses, but don't let it make you think that each team is entering the postseason on a slide. However, it is fair to ask how seriously we can take either's success too.

    Before falling to Louisville 31-24 in OT, the Bearcats had won six straight games. Granted, the six teams that Cincinnati beat had a combined American Athletic Conference record of 17-29 (including five wins that belonged to Houston), but hey, six straight is six straight. We'll save the nitpicking for later.

    North Carolina started the season horribly at 1-5 and rebounded with five straight wins to get bowl eligible before losing to Duke. However, one of those wins was over Old Dominion, an FBS independent transitioning into the top level of college football and the combined ACC record of its four other opponents in that period is 7-25.

    Pinstripe Bowl
    Notre Dame vs. Rutgers
    New York, NY
    Dec. 28, 2013

    This game means more to the New York City area than it does to the rest of the country.

    Notre Dame's popularity in New York City is sky-high, and Rutgers -- the state university of New Jersey -- isn't too far from Yankee Stadium. It's a familiar venue for the Scarlet Knights too. Rutgers was at the Pinstripe Bowl in 2011 against Iowa State and won. Plus, in a rarity for a smaller bowl, the school made money that year. It expects to once again.

    So there will be butts in the seats at Yankee Stadium. Will there be butts on the couches across the country to watch? Sure, Notre Dame's national appeal can be transcendent, but this is a game that kicks off at Noon ET on a Saturday between Christmas and New Year's. And it's featuring a team in Rutgers that's 6-6 and a Notre Dame team that's 8-4.

    Rutgers struggled through a weak American Athletic Conference, going 3-5. The highlight of the season may have been the season-opening
