Enjoy it while you can, Bob. This is the last time anyone associated with Notre Dame will be happy with a one-point win over Hawaii.
The Orangemen snap a string of six consecutive losses to Miami, win their first outright Big East title and line up a spot in the Fiesta Bowl, worth $8.6 million! Not bad for a team that began the season 1-3.
3. KANSAS STATE AND...
Losses by Arizona State and Penn State over the holiday weekend left two open berths in the Alliance. Kansas State appears headed for the Fiesta Bowl, and Florida State has another Alliance berth. Who will get the last one? UCLA? Ohio State?
With a 27-10 lead and one eye on the polls, the Huskers lost their focus and barely held off Colorado 27-24. Hey, after that fourth quarter there's no more controversy about who's No. 1.
2. THE PAC-10
Arizona's 28-16 upset of Arizona State denied the Sun Devils a Fiesta Bowl bid, thus costing each school in the conference about $740,000. It's a price the Wildcats are happy to pay.

Lou Holtz is fired. Ken Hatfield resigns. Now Danny Ford, two years removed from an SEC title-game berth, is sent packing. Can any coach get along with the Arkansas athletic director?
