Football update: USC, Oregon State win
We interrupt this basketball blogging for a football update: USC has beaten UCLA to win the Pac-10 and clinch the league's automatic BCS berth, and Oregon State has edged Oregon 38-31 in double overtime, and while Arizona State still has a game tonight, all things point to USF playing Oregon in the Sun Bowl in El Paso on Dec. 31.
An Arizona State win locks up an at-large BCS berth, which puts Oregon State in the Holiday Bowl. Oregon and UCLA would both be 5-4 in Pac-10 play, but Oregon has two more wins, so it makes sense that the Sun Bowl would pick the Ducks.
If Arizona State loses and goes to the Holiday Bowl, I still think the Sun Bowl opts out of its natural pick, Oregon State, because the Beavers were in El Paso last season. Oregon would then be their selection.
