Iowa 31, South Carolina 10

By Fred Goodall
Associated PressTAMPA, Fla. ó From carrying couches to an All-American carrying a football. Now, Big Ten MVP Shonn Greene figures he’s ready for the next level.
The Iowa running back turned Thursday’s Outback Bowl into a farewell party, leading the Hawkeyes past South Carolina 31-10 and announcing he intends to skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.
“I don’t think there’s really a lot more I can do here,” said Greene, who worked at a furniture store and didn’t play football while at community college to improve his grades. “People talk about the Heisman, but I think that’s a lot of politics.”
Greene ran for 121 yards and three TDs. He rushed for more than 100 yards in all 13 games this year for Iowa (9-4).
USC (7-6) was outscored 118-30 in its last three losses. Stephen Garcia, a highly regarded QB from Tampa, started but was replaced after going 9 of 18 for 79 yards and three picks.
