College Football Week 14 Review

Cam Newton led #1 Auburn to a big 56-17 win over #19 South Carolina in the SEC Championship Game. Newton had 408 total yards (335 passing, 73 running) and six touchdowns(4 and 2). The Auburn defense shut the South Carolina offense and held All-American receiver Alshon Jeffery to only 36 yards. Auburn will likely head to Arizona to take on #2 Oregon in the National Title Game.

#2 Oregon finished the game strong, once again, to beat instate rival Oregon St in the "Civil War" 37-20. LaMichael James finished with 134 yards on the ground and two scores while Darren Thomas threw for 145 and two touchdowns.  The win caps off Oregon's undefeated season as they will probably take on #1 Auburn in the Title Game in Arizona.

#9 Oklahoma takes care of #13 Nebraska 23-20 to win the Big 12 Championship. Oklahoma forced four turnovers and had seven sacks on the night while Landry Jones threw for 382 yards and a touchdown in the win. Nebraska's last game in the Big 12 will go down as a loss while Oklahoma will head on to the Fiesta Bowl.

#11 Boise St bounced back big time to beat Utah St 50-14. Kellen Moore threw for 237 yards and three touchdowns in the win while the Broncos move to 11-1 and get a share of the WAC title. Boise St is still hoping for a BCS Bowl game but they may have to settle for something else.

#15 Virginia Tech took out #21 Florida St to win the ACC championship 44-33. Tyrod Taylor threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns and ran for one more in the win for the Hokies. This caps off Virginia Tech's 11 game win streak as they head in the the BCS Bowl game representing the ACC.

#17 Nevada comes back again, this time over Louisiana Tech to win 35-17. Nevada moves to a stellar 11-1 on the season and a share of the WAC crown. Colin Kaepernick threw for 159 yards and rushed for 155 and three scores while Vai Taua added 162 on the ground and two scores in the win.

#24 West Virginia blew out Rutgers 35-14  yet it wasn't enough as UConn takes the Big East's BCS bowl bid with their win over South Florida. Geno Smith threw for 352 yards and a score while running back Ryan Clarke ran for three touchdowns in the win. West Virginia finishes at 9-3 while Rutgers finishes at 4-8.
