LOS ANGELES -- Athought kept coming to mind as Fresno State jumped out to a 7-0 lead on Southern California, made it 21-13 at the half and took a 42-41 lead in the fourth quarter Saturday night. Why, again, was USC doing this? The No. 1 Trojans, with history-making on their mind, needed to play Fresno State like they needed to replay that last down against Notre Dame. The anatomy of this schedule-making really came down to machismo, an annual call-out by Fresno State coach Pat Hill finally answered by bring-it-on acceptance by USC coach Pete Carroll.

FRESNO, Calif. -- Before the season began, Coppin State coach Fang Mitchell said the season would be "challenging."Last night's 86-67 loss to Fresno State, however, could best be described as frightful.Mitchell is trying to piece together six newcomers to a team that last season thrived on the play of Danny Singletary and Antoine Brockington."That's definitely not the way I wanted to get started," Mitchell said. "But I'm figuring out what we need to do. We have new people in critical spots, and when you start with new players, this is not the team you want to start against."

Freshman Austyn Carta-Samuels threw three touchdown passes, the last a 13-yarder to David Leonard in the second overtime Saturday, and Wyoming beat Fresno State, 35-28, in the New Mexico Bowl in Albuquerque. The first of 34 bowls was a high-scoring matchup that was decided by defense. Wyoming (7-6) stopped the nation's leading rusher, Fresno State's Ryan Mathews , on three rushing attempts from the 1 in the first overtime. The Bulldogs (8-5) tried a quarterback sneak on third down, and Mathews came up short again on fourth down.

College football's annual end-of-season mess known as the Bowl Championship Series teetered on the verge of total chaos late Saturday night in Los Angeles. Order eventually prevailed, as did top-ranked Southern California with a wild, 50-42 victory over No. 16 Fresno State at the Coliseum. But here's a thought to fuel a little controversy that typically surrounds the BCS at this time of year: Do the Bulldogs deserve a BCS invitation? It's unlikely Fresno State can jump into the top six, as Utah did last season.

Fresno State@Boise State 6 p.m. [ESPN2] The Defenders of the Smurf Turf can join Ball State as an unbeaten team that won't get a whiff of a Bowl Championship Series game. No. 9 Boise State (11-0) already has won the Western Athletic Conference, but Fresno State (7-4) really could use an upset to propel the Bulldogs into a bowl game. However, the Broncos are 63-3 over the past 10 seasons at home, where fans high up in the stands can look out to snow-capped mountains should the game get boring.

When coach Ken Hatfield asked Clemson quarterback DeChane Cameron to run the offense through a cold rain Saturday night, he took the coach at his word.Told he would need to run for 100 yards to give the 15th-ranked Tigers (6-1-1, 4-0-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference) a chance to win, Cameron delivered 117 and also scored two touchdowns in a 21-6 victory over North Carolina (5-4, 2-4) in Chapel Hill, N.C."When I first thought about it, I thought it was impossible because I've never gained 100 yards before," Cameron said.

The red-and-black splashes on the card are bustling with images: bad-tempered crows, a butterfly and even a couple of blood-stained kidneys. You, however, would see other things, for this card and nine others in the world-famous Rorschach test have strange powers and are said to reveal much about a person's mind when a skillful seer interprets them. The cards have another uncanny power: to tick people off. The Rorschach inkblot test was named after its inventor, Hermann Rorschach, a Swiss psychiatrist.
