No. 20 MICHIGAN (7-4) vs. No. 10 COLO. STATE (10-1)Site: San DiegoTime: 9 tonightTV: ESPNOutlook: A national championship was at stake the last time Michigan played in the Holiday Bowl. The Wolverines lost to Brigham Young in 1984, allowing the Cougars to claim their only national title. The stakes are not as high this year, but this game is still a milestone for Colorado State, which won its first Western Athletic Conference title and is playing in its first Holiday Bowl. Colorado State suffered its only loss of the season to Utah and has a victory at Arizona this season.

If you're wondering why the Big Ten has earned its well-deserved reputation as the most arrogant and overrated conference in the country, simply examine its recent decision to sign with the Holiday Bowl and the Citrus Bowl.With the stroke of commissioner Jim Delany's pen, the Big Ten managed to remove itself from the so-called bowl alliance and the consortium's quest to create, beginning next year, a more viable national championship scenario. The conference also made few friends among the consortium's bowl participants -- the Orange, Cotton, Sugar and Fiesta.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Big 12 has yet to start its operation, but Nebraska coach Tom Osborne already seems to be regretting the merger between the Big Eight and four former Southwest Conference schools in at least one regard.What has rankled Osborne is the Big 12's position on Prop 48 -- or, as of next year, Prop 16 -- players. The Big Eight allowed its members to take players who fell short of the NCAA's prescribed standards, but the SWC didn't.And therein lies the problem."What we're saying is that players who qualified last year [under Prop 48]

SAN DIEGO -- Navy will play in a bowl game in a Navy town. The Midshipmen on Monday accepted an invitation to play in the inaugural Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 22 at Qualcomm Stadium. Navy will most likely play Colorado State, although the Mountain West Conference won't announce its bowl lineup until Tuesday or Wednesday "To get off to a good start in this inaugural bowl game we needed a marquee at-large team to play the Mountain West Conference, and what better matchup than to have the Naval Academy come to a Navy community such as San Diego?"

Penn State's top defender, linebacker Mark D'Onofrio, is out of today's game against Rutgers because of a dislocated left shoulder.D'Onofrio has been playing with the injury, but went yesterday to New York to see a physician for an opinion on whether surgery is necessary, Penn State spokesman L. Budd Thalman said. D'Onofrio is out for at least today's home game.Earlier in the week, coach Joe Paterno had left the question of D'Onofrio's continued play up to the fifth-year senior, who hurt the shoulder two days before the Sept.

As opposed to the movie Roadie, starring Meat Loaf (left). 2 Odds are: In the Holiday Bowl (8 p.m., ESPN), it's the Cowboys vs. the Ducks. And if you don't know which colleges those are, you shouldn't be betting the game. 3 Read all about it: In the Texas Bowl (NFL Network, 8 p.m.), maybe Western Michigan has a short player who will score five times against Rice.

This is it — the final regular-season poll. Half the preseason top 10 survived: Oregon (9), TCU (5), Boise State (1), Ohio State (2) and Virginia Tech (7). Auburn opened the season 18th, Stanford 19th, Wisconsin 13th and Arkansas 17th. Nevada, like a pistol shot, rose all the way from unranked. Alabama (4) disappointed slightly and Texas (8) disappointed greatly, while Florida (6) flopped by its standards. Every team in the poll has a bowl game left to impress a one-man judge and jury.

Chris Chester has started the Ravens' past 18 games at right guard, cementing his status at that position. John Matsko came to a similar conclusion - more than three years ago. While preparing for the 2006 draft as the offensive line coach for the Kansas City Chiefs, Matsko watched footage of Chester - playing guard for the Oklahoma Sooners - tangle with defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and the Oregon Ducks in the Holiday Bowl. That performance convinced Matsko, who became the Ravens offensive line coach before the 2008 season, that Chester had a future as a guard.

San Diego -- The baby of the bowls is off to an encouraging start. Prodded by the Mountain West Conference to launch a second postseason game in San Diego, certified for play last spring by the NCAA and buoyed by the appearance of the Naval Academy and its legion of fans for the kickoff event, the Poinsettia Bowl is headed to an initial success. In the past year, everything has fallen conveniently into place for officials of the well-received Holiday Bowl, who have an added starter for their work log. "All of a sudden, things started building up, and here we are," said Holiday Bowl executive director Bruce Binkowski.

PASADENA, Calif. - For a guy who grew up in the shadow of the Matterhorn (and we're talking about the fake one in Southern California, of course), the Rose Bowl has always been a repository of tradition in a land of constant change. The Tournament of Roses spawned the first bowl game more than a century ago and tried hard to resist the siren call of the Bowl Championship Series, but you can only stand in the way of progress for so long if you want the biggest share of all that TV money.

Once again, the holiday season is upon us. And Santa won't be the only one with travel headaches. Just think about the teams that will participate in this year's non-Bowl Championship Series games. Take Texas, for example. The Longhorns were steered toward a big BCS payday, probably at the Fiesta Bowl, until Kansas State upset Oklahoma, seriously messing with Texas. Now the Longhorns get a trip to the Holiday Bowl. Almost the same, right? After all, it's only another 365 miles - and $12 million - from Tempe, Ariz.
