SAN DIEGO — Jake Locker bounced back from an injury and scored on a 25-yard run in the third quarter, and tailback Chris Polk ran for 177 yards and a score to help the Washington Huskies to a 19-7 win over the listless No. 17 Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Holiday Bowl on Thursday night.

North Carolina 30,Tennessee 27, 2OT

At Nashville, Tenn., Casey Barth kicked a 23-yard field goal in the second overtime to send North Carolina past Tennessee in a Music City Bowl that will be remembered much more for the crazy finish of regulation that even gave the Tar Heels a chance to keep playing.

Barth kicked a 39-yard field goal after officials reviewed what had been the final play of the game and decided to penalize the Tar Heels (8-5) for having "more than 11 men" on the field. The Big Ten officiating crew also announced T.J. Yates had spiked the ball with 1 second left.

That allowed Barth to run out the field goal that tied it at 20.

At New York, Delone Carter ran for 198 yards and two touchdowns, Marcus Sales caught three long TD passes and Syracuse got some help from a celebration penalty on Kansas State to beat the Wildcats in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

Army 16, SMU 14

At Dallas, Josh McNary scooped up a fumble and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown and Army held on to beat SMU in the Armed Forces Bowl, giving the Black Knights their first winning season since 1996.

The Black Knights led 16-0 at halftime on SMU's home field, then ran out the game's final 4 minutes after Matt Szymanski was wide left on a 47-yard field goal attempt that would have put the Mustangs (7-7) ahead.
