LAS VEGAS (AP) — Although Fresno State fell one win short of a BCS berth, the Bulldogs still got a high-stakes matchup in Vegas for the final game of quarterback Derek Carr's career.

The 21st-ranked Bulldogs (11-1) are in the Las Vegas Bowl against Southern California (9-4), kicking off bowl season with a compelling California matchup in the shadow of the Strip.

Carr is excited about the challenge he'll face when the Bulldogs have the ball at Sam Boyd Stadium. While Fresno State's up-tempo passing offense decimated nearly every defense it faced, USC's undermanned defense still put together an impressive season against the Pac-12's high-scoring teams.

Clay Helton is USC's third head coach of the season, but the Trojans say they're focused on a 10-win season despite nonstop drama around the program.
