Charles Scott ran for three touchdowns and LSU took advantage of Georgia Tech's special teams mistakes in a surprisingly easy 38-3 win over the Yellow Jackets in the Chick-fil-A Bowl last night in Atlanta. LSU outscored the No. 14 Yellow Jackets 28-0 in the second quarter and led 35-3 at halftime. Scott, who rushed for 65 yards, had two touchdowns in the decisive quarter. A year after winning the national championship, LSU (8-5) lost three of its final four regular-season games but regrouped for a dominant bowl victory over Georgia Tech (9-4)

Midway through November, Maryland had lost three straight games and it began to look as if the team might never pick up its sixth win and become bowl eligible. The turnover-prone Terps had just lost at home to Syracuse, 20-3, in a game in which Maryland players conceded the team appeared flat. Maryland's outlook has changed dramatically since then. A team that had never won a game in November under third-year coach Randy Edsall went on to win two of its last three in the regular season.

Maryland has agreed to a home-and-home football series with Texas, the school announced today. The Terps will travel to Austin on Sept. 2, 2017, while the Longhorns will head to College Park for a Sept. 1, 2018 date. Both games will be season openers. Texas holds a 3-0 series advantage over the Terps. The last meeting between the programs was in the 1978 Sun Bowl.

Oklahoma vs. Stanford Andrea Adelson Orlando Sentinel I have had my eye on the Sun Bowl between Stanford and Oklahoma since the games were announced earlier this month. Why? For one, I want to see Stanford in its first bowl appearance since 2001, against what has been one of the premier programs in the country over the last decade. For another, I want to see Heisman runner-up Toby Gerhart go against the tough Oklahoma run defense. Gerhart is averaging 144.7 rushing yards per game, while the Sooners rank No. 7 in the country in rushing defense at 88.6 yards per game.

Alabama is second in total defense (235.9 ypg). About Alabama: Alabama TB Kenneth Darby (stomach muscle) may not play. About Minnesota: The Gophers have an excellent 1-2 punch at tailback in Laurence Maroney and Marion Barber III. The buzz: These teams combined to win 12 games, but only two came against teams that finished with winning records.

Just a few thoughts while we all wait anxiously for the start of the Music City Bowl, which will feature North Carolina State and Vanderbilt in the first game of today's so-so New Year's Eve bowl lineup. OK, tonight's Clemson/LSU game is a pretty good matchup, but the other three games aren't exactly what the founding fathers had in mind when they laid out the original bowl system during breaks at the Constitutional Convention. Hmmm. The most disappointing preseason BCS favorite in years - USC - will take on Georgia Tech, which will enter the Sun Bowl with an impressive 6-7 record.

The holidays can be stressful, and once the Christmas season hits, free time is precious. Thus, in the holiday spirit of selflessness, here is our top 20 (of the 35 games) to help you best adjust your calendar around the holidays. 20. Holiday Bowl, California (7-5) vs. Texas (7-5), Dec. 28: Both coaches have been at their schools forever, and the loser is going to hear a lot of grief in the offseason. Actually, considering each team was so inconsistent, the winner is going to get some grief this offseason too. 19. Military Bowl, Air Force (7-5)

Maryland learned Sunday that it will play in the Military Bowl at Washington's RFK Stadium — an outcome that seemed to puzzle and disappoint a school that believed it had earned the right to travel to a higher-level bowl game far from campus. The Terps (8-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) will be matched on Dec. 29 at 2:30 p.m. against East Carolina (6-6), which finished in a tie for fourth place in Conference USA. Maryland did not want to be disrespectful to the Military Bowl, which is in its third year — it was formerly called the EagleBank Bowl — and benefits the USO. But it was no secret that the Terrapins hoped and expected to be invited to an upper-echelon bowl game.

Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen said Sunday that the Terps deserve a bid to an "upper-echelon" bowl game befitting a team that tied with two other schools for the third-best record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Maryland's 38-31 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday pushed its record to 8-4 (5-3 ACC) — a mark that Friedgen said entitles the Terps to one of the top bowls affiliated with the ACC. Bowl games are not required to pick teams based on final record alone, making their selections difficult to forecast.

Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien felt uneasy. It was moments after Florida State's 30-16 victory over Maryland last Saturday, and Seminoles players seemed eager to wish O'Brien good luck in the next Atlantic Coast Conference game. The Florida State players weren't just being polite. The Seminoles need the Terps to knock North Carolina State out of the Atlantic Division title race today for Florida State to claim the crown. O'Brien immediately felt uncomfortable in the spoiler's role.

Almost any bowl game looks appealing to a Maryland football team that remained on its chilly campus after last season while other Atlantic Coast Conference teams prepared for postseason games in enticing locations such as Miami and Orlando, Fla. But of course, there is appealing (for example, the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta, or the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando) and then there is spectacular (the Orange Bowl in Miami). With three regular-season games left, many Maryland players and coaches can't help but glance at the list of bowl games and contemplate their possible December or January destinations.
