    Ali and Palmer Honorary Captains at Orange Bowl

    Andre Woodson threw for three touchdowns and 300 yards as Kentucky surprised Clemson 28-20 in the Music City Bowl on Friday, the Wildcats' first postseason victory in 22 years.

    Woodson completed 20 of 30 passes to finish his breakout season with 31 touchdowns - more than five times his total from last year as a sophomore. He joins Tim Couch in 1997-98 as the only Wildcats quarterbacks to top the 30-touchdown mark in a season.


    Already a national stage for some of the best in college football, the 73rd FedEx Orange Bowl will welcome two of the "greatest" athletes in sports history, Muhammad Ali and Arnold Palmer to Dolphin Stadium.

    Muhammad Ali will be the honorary captain for Louisville while Arnold Palmer will represent his alma mater Wake Forest as the honorary captain on the evening of January 2nd.

    Sam Hollenbach passed for 223 yards and two touchdowns and Lance Ball rushed for 98 yards as Maryland beat Purdue 24-7 in the Champs Sports Bowl on Friday night.

    The Terrapins (9-4) were able to keep Purdue's offense, the NCAA's 10th best at 425 yards per game, in check by blanketing its speedy wideouts, batting down several passes -- and keeping the ball away from the Boilermakers.
