PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — No. 7 Oregon held off No. 11 Wisconsin 28-27 to win its third straight trip to the Rose Bowl. Justin Herbert scored his third rushing touchdown on a 30-yard run with 7:41 to play. Brady Breeze returned a fumble 31 yards for an early touchdown for the Ducks. Herbert then made his go-ahead rambling run on the next snap after Breeze forced another fumble in yet another frenetic edition of this venerated bowl game. Aron Cruickshank returned an early kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown as the Big Ten runner-up Badgers lost in their fourth consecutive trip to Pasadena over the last 10 years.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tyler Johnson had 12 receptions for 204 yards and two touchdowns to become Minnesota’s career receiving leader and propel the 16th-ranked Gophers to a 31-24 victory over No. 9 Auburn in the Outback Bowl. Johnson broke Eric Decker's school record for receiving yards on his second catch of the day and became Minnesota’s all-time leader for scoring receptions on a one-handed, 2-yard TD catch that put the Gophers up 24-17 at halftime. His 73-yard catch-and-run put Minnesota ahead for good early in the fourth quarter. Minnesota finished 11-2, its first season with more than 10 wins since 1904. Auburn wound up 9-5.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Mac Jones threw three touchdown passes and Jerry Jeudy became the first Alabama player to top 200 receiving yards in a bowl game as the ninth-ranked Crimson Tide topped No. 17 Michigan 35-16 on Wednesday in the Citrus Bowl. Jeudy finished with six catches for 204 yards. Najee Harris ran for 136 yards and two touchdowns for Alabama. Shea Patterson completed 17 of 37 passes for 233 yards and a touchdown for Michigan.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Indiana and Tennessee have plenty at stake in the Gator Bowl. It's each team's first bowl trip since 2016. The Hoosiers have eight wins for the first time since 1993 and are in a bowl game for just the 12th time. They are trying to reach nine victories for the first time since 1967. It's clear validation for third-year coach Tom Allen. The Volunteers also have seemingly turned a corner under second-year coach Jeremy Pruitt. Tennessee closed the regular season with five consecutive wins to earn its first bowl berth in three years. The Vols have won three straight bowls.

UNDATED (AP) — Kentucky's 2012 title team and Villanova's 2018 championship team are among the best of the decade in college basketball. Virginia in 2019, Duke in 2015 and North Carolina's 2017 title team also were voted the best of the 2010s. A panel of Associated Press poll voters picked the best teams of the decade.
