Texas guard Varez Ward will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured quadriceps tendon in his right leg. Team trainer Eric Fry says Ward will have surgery next week. Ward started the first three games for No. 3 Texas (4-0) before injuring himself in warm-ups before Tuesday night's win over Pittsburgh. He averaged 6.7 points and three rebounds and led the team with seven steals. •UCLA reinstated Nikola Dragovic after the Serbian forward's two-game suspension for his arrest in an assault case.

A.J. Abrams scored 18 of Texas' final 20 points last night, leading the host Longhorns to a 73-68 upset of No. 2 Oklahoma (25-2, 11-1 Big 12), which had to play most of the game without leading scorer and rebounder Blake Griffin after he suffered a concussion in the first half. Abrams scored 16 in a row in the final eight minutes, hitting four three-pointers, then capped the scoring with two free throws with four seconds to play. He finished with 23 points for the Longhorns (18-8, 7-5)

I harbor no great love for either Texas or Oklahoma. That said, I couldn't help but feel bad for the Longhorns on Sunday as they watched a team they had beaten pass them in the Bowl Championship Series standings. I understand the reasons the Sooners surged to No. 2. Their 65-21 demolition of Texas Tech, the only team to beat Texas, was no doubt impressive. Despite playing five ranked teams and the Big East champion, they failed to reach 45 points only twice in 12 games. But the argument against the Sooners is incredibly simple and elegant in its evocation of the basic reason we play games.

A week before the final standings are released and the Bowl Championship Series is already ticking people off. Oklahoma - not Texas - is headed to the Big 12 championship game with an inside track to the national title game by finishing ahead of the Longhorns in the BCS standings. Texas' victory against the Sooners in October wasn't enough to give the Longhorns the advantage in a three-way tie between Oklahoma, Texas and Texas Tech atop the Big 12 South. And that's sure to leave many in Austin feeling slighted.

Luke Harangody had done everything a bruising power forward is supposed to do. He scored 29 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and even threw in a banked 40-footer as the shot clock expired. But he had to wait to make sure his two missed free throws in the final seconds didn't cost No. 8 Notre Dame a win over No. 6 Texas. They didn't, barely. After Harangody's second miss with 3.5 seconds to play, Texas' A.J. Abrams let fly with a shot from just beyond half court that bounced off the front of the rim and the Fighting Irish had an 81-80 victory in the semifinals of the EA Sports Maui Invitational in Lahaina, Hawaii.

The initial news from the Bowl Championship Series standings looked good for Texas. The long-range forecast, however, favors Oklahoma. The Longhorns stayed ahead of the Sooners yesterday - but not by much - and moved into the coveted second spot in the standings, thanks to a better computer rating. The Sooners surged in the standings on the strength of a 65-21 victory against Texas Tech, which dropped to seventh place. Alabama remained on top of the standings, a comfortable No. 1 in the USA Today coaches' poll and Harris poll, and best according to the computers.

The Texas football team rode its resounding Red River Rivalry upset right to No. 1. The Longhorns leapfrogged No. 2 Alabama yesterday and sit atop the Associated Press Top 25 in the regular season for the first time in 24 years after beating Oklahoma, 45-35. Texas' jump to No. 1 is the largest since Miami went from No. 6 to No. 1 on Aug. 29, 1988, after beating preseason top-ranked Florida State, 31-0, to start the season. Texas received 39 first-place votes and 1,599 points from the media panel.

Villanova @Georgetown 7 P.M. [ESPN] Mr. Flip knows his college hoops, so he's telling you there's no way Villanova, with guys like Pinckney and Jensen, can beat the mighty Hoyas of Ewing and Williams. Kansas @Texas 9 P.M. [ESPN] The Jayhawks are No. 4, the Longhorns No. 12. Texas has beaten Kansas in the past two games played in Austin, but those games were played in 2004 and 2006.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- The blueprint for an upset was simple enough. The Southern California players and coaches figured if they played tough defense and stayed close against favored Texas for the first 10 minutes, they could make a game of it. The Trojans did better than that. They broke to an early lead against the Longhorns - and their super-freshman Kevin Durant - and never looked back, rolling to an 87-68 victory in an East Regional second-round game at Spokane Arena. "The first 10 minutes were critical," USC coach Tim Floyd said.

Last year at this time, everyone was singing the praises of Texas quarterback Vince Young after his Longhorns beat Ohio State. Now it's Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith's turn. Smith was marvelous in guiding Ohio State to a resounding 24-7 victory over the Longhorns on Saturday night. The result left no doubt the Buckeyes were No. 1. Smith was 17-for-26 for 269 yards and two touchdowns as the Buckeyes rolled. He was 13-for-19 for 219 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, then helped the Buckeyes control the ball and the clock in the second half.
