Reporters' Notebooks

Bob Clark, Eugene Register-Guard: It looks more and more like the Oregon Ducks will migrate to San Diego for the Holiday Bowl, where Oklahoma or Nebraska will be the opponent.

Ben Bolch, Los Angeles Times: UCLA's Maurice Drew is dinged up and missed practice, but he won't miss the biggie against USC.

Ron Higgins and Marlon W. Morgan, Commercial Appeal: They break down the SEC title game and tell you who will walk away with the trophy (registration).

Susan Miller Degnan, Miami Herald: NCAA head honcho Myles Brand has started an investigation into Miami's University High, the school at the center of a New York Times investigation (registration).

Chris Low, Tennessean: Tennessee's Phillip Fulmer won't be getting a raise and will have to make due on $2.05 million next year.

Robbi Pickeral, Raleigh News & Observer: A lack of consistency was North Carolina's downfall, and coach John Bunting has much work to do (registration).

John Moredich, Tucson Citizen: If Arizona can beef up its defensive front, it could be a force next season. The offense is another story.

Chad Hartley, Reno Gazette-Journal: Decisions, decisions. Nevada is a team divided. Do the Wolfpack prefer to spend the holidays in Honolulu or Las Vegas?

Steve Kirk, Birmingham News: Alabama's Mike Shula is about to get a fat raise, sources tell the paper.

Moisekapenda Bower, Houston Chronicle: The Chronicle scoops the world. Ken Hatfield resigns as Rice coach.
