ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Sixth-ranked Georgia outscored No. 23 Nebraska 45-31 to win the Capital One Bowl. Aaron Murray threw five touchdown passes to set a Georgia bowl record, including two in the fourth quarter. Murray passed for 427 yards for the 12-2 Bulldogs.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Eleventh-ranked South Carolina captured the Outback Bowl by rallying past 19th-ranked Michigan 33-28. Dylan Thompson came off the bench to throw a 32-yard touchdown pass with 11 seconds left to rally the Gamecocks, who finished 11-2.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Winning its first bowl since the 1949 Rose Bowl, 21st-ranked Northwestern snapped its nine-game bowl losing streak by beating Mississippi State 34-20 in the Gator Bowl. Quentin Williams returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the game. Nick Vanhoose set up a late touchdown with a 39-yard interception return to help the Wildcats end the nation's longest postseason losing streak.

DALLAS (AP) — Clint Chelf threw three of Oklahoma State's five touchdown passes and the Cowboys shook off a disappointing Big 12 finish by dominating Purdue 58-14 in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. It was the biggest bowl win for Oklahoma State since coach Mike Gundy was the quarterback in a 62-14 rout of Wyoming in the 1988 Holiday Bowl. The Cowboys finished 8-5. Purdue wound up 6-7.

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire is making his season debut tonight against Portland and will come off the bench as he plays his way back into shape following left knee surgery on Oct. 31. He and head coach Mike Woodson said Stoudemire's minutes would be limited in tonight's game. The Knicks also have forward Carmelo Anthony back on the starting lineup following a two-game absence because of a hyperextended left knee.
