American college football

Top Ten teams whose regular seasons completed: (6) Utah, (8) Penn State, (10) Ohio State. (2) Texas completed their season Thursday, and (9) Boise State finished their season on Friday.
  • Notable Rivalry Games:
    • Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate: Georgia Tech 45, (11) Georgia 42
      • The Yellow Jackets come back from 16-points half-time deficit with 26–0 run in the third quarter, but their joy for the win is mixed with disappointment as win for Virginia Tech means the Hokies win the ACC Coastal Division title at the expense of Georgia Tech. The Bulldogs loss ends their hopes for BCS at-large bid.
    • Border Showdown: Kansas 40, (13) Missouri 37 at Kansas City
      • The Jayhawks lead by 16 points early in the third quarter, then allow the Tigers to score 20 consecutive points to take the lead, but Kerry Meier catches a 15-yard pass and scores with 27 seconds remaining to give Kansas the victory over the Big 12 North Division winner. The Tigers will likely drop off the top-14 in the next BCS ranking and be out of contention for BCS at-large berth if they lose the championship game next Saturday.
    • The Civil War: (23) Oregon 65, (17) Oregon State 38
      • The Beavers, who could have clinched the Pac-10 championship with a win, now should hope for a Southern California loss to UCLA next Saturday to win the title. If the Trojans win, They will make the short trip to Pasadena for the fourth consecutive year.
    • Battle of the Palmetto State: Clemson 31, South Carolina 14.
      • Clemson becomes bowl eligible with the win against their in-state rival.
    • Commonwealth Cup: Virginia Tech 17, Virginia 14
      • The Hokies win gives them the ACC Coastal Division title and a trip to the Championship Game against Boston College.
    • Bayou Bucket: Rice 56, Houston 42.
      • The Owls win is worthless since Tulsa beat Marshall and claims the C-USA West Division championship.
    • Victory Bell: North Carolina 28, Duke 20
