The bowls roundup …

No. 10 Auburn 17, No. 22 Nebraska 14

DALLAS — Carl Stewart scored the only two times he touched the ball, John Vaughn kicked a 42-yard field goal and Auburn’s defense held at the end.

Nebraska (9-5) opened with a dominating drive, but couldn’t do much else right in its first January game in five years. The Cornhuskers’ bid for 10 wins ended when Zac Taylor threw an incompletion on fourth-and-11 from the Auburn 30 with 2:03 left.

Auburn (11-2) became the fourth straight Southeastern Conference school to win the Cotton Bowl.

Outback Bowl

Penn St. 20, No. 17 Tennessee 10

TAMPA, Fla. — Tony Hunt ran for 158 yards and Tony Davis returned a fumble 88 yards for a touchdown to help Penn State get the win.

Nittany Lions coach Joe Paterno watched from the press box as he continues to recover from a broken leg.

Penn State (9-4) forced three turnovers in holding Tennessee (9-4) to a season-low point total, and the Nittany Lions improved to 16-6 in New Year’s Day bowls under their 80-year-old coach.

Capital One Bowl

No. 6 Wisconsin 17, No. 12 Arkansas 14

ORLANDO, Fla. — John Stocco threw two first-half touchdown passes and Wisconsin held on through a tense second half to beat Arkansas. The Badgers (12-1) led 17-7 at the half.
