27 — Points Stanford led USC by with 6:47 remaining (48-21), when Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh decided to go for a two-point conversion. Hey coach, what’s your deal?

29 — Seasons as a college football head coach for Dick Tomey, who announced on Monday that he will hang up his whistle after San Jose State’s season finale against Louisiana Tech on Dec. 5. Before taking over the Spartan program in 2005, he coached 10 seasons at Hawai’i (1977-86) and 14 seasons at Arizona (1987-2000). Tomey, who is also the president of the American Football Coaches Association, currently has a grand total of 182 career victories.
41 — Total tackles made by USC’s four starting defensive backs in Stanford’s 55-21 victory over the Trojans last Saturday at the Coliseum. Pete Carroll’s front seven have yet to be located.
61 — Age of Austin College kicker Tom Thompson, who booted an extra point last Saturday afternoon against Trinity University, becoming the oldest player in college football history.

7,626 — Career all-purpose yards by Western Michigan senior running back Brandon West, which represents a new FBS record, surpassing the old mark of 7,573 set by Memphis’ DeAngelo Williams in 2005. West has at least one more game to add to his total. And if the Broncos can beat Ball State next Tuesday, they’ll become bowl eligible and might be able to worm their way into the Humanitarian Bowl.
