COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Kyle Van Noy had a fumble recovery for a touchdown and added a score on an
interception in the fourth quarter to lead BYU to a 23-6 win over San Diego
State in the Poinsettia Bowl. Jamaal Williams scored a touchdown on the ground
while James Lark was 23- for-42 with 244 yards and two interceptions for the
Cougars (8-5), who won four of their final five games and are winners in their
past four bowl games. Adam Dingwell was picked off three times and finished
the game 12-for-29 with 144 yards for the Aztecs (9-4), who had won their
final seven games of the regular season. Adam Muema carried the ball 26 times
for 103 yards in the loss.

College football's bowl season continues Friday with the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl
which features UCF against Ball State . The Cardinals enter the game riding a
six-game win streak, while the Knights dropped two of their final three
contests. Ball State has made five bowl appearances but has never managed to
earn a victory. The Knights have garnered just a 1-3 record in their four
previous bowl games, but they did win their most recent postseason appearance
with a 10-6 victory over Georgia in the 2010 Liberty Bowl. Ball State has a
2-1 record in this series and won the last meeting 21-17 between these former
Mid-American Conference foes.
