Texas coach Brown bows out with loss in Alamo Bowl to Oregon

Quarterback Marcus Mariota had 386 total yards and No. 10 Oregon returned two interceptions for touchdowns, spoiling Texas coach Mack Brown's farewell with a runaway 30-7 victory in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio on Monday night.

The BCS-snubbed Ducks (11-2) dominated even though their high-powered offense scored just one touchdown.

Brown received warm goodbyes from a sellout crowd in what was practically a home game for Texas (8-5). Even the school marching band spelled his name at halftime. But the blowout was a final reminder of why Brown is resigning after 16 seasons.

Armed Forces Bowl

Navy 24, Middle Tennessee State 6 - Keenan Reynolds ran for two more touchdowns and the Midshipment (9-4) won for just the second time its last seven bowl games, beating the Blue Raiders (8-5) in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Midshipmen overcame two fumbles inside the 20 by Reynolds, their first turnovers in six games, and won their fifth straight game.

Music City Bowl

Mississippi 25, Georgia Tech 17 - Bo Wallace ran for two touchdowns and threw for another score as the Rebels beat the Yellow Jackets for Mississippi's second straight bowl victory under coach Hugh Freeze with the win in Nashville.

Ole Miss (8-5) now has won six straight bowls and 10 of the last 11 in making up for the lone loss in that stretch in the 2000 Music City Bowl.

Georgia Tech (7-6) has lost eight of nine bowls.
