Leavitt Named Coach of the Week



September 10, 2007

It's . . . of the Week, the best of a weekend that was. Sorry, we ran out of room for Northwestern's big rally against Nevada.

Coach

South Florida coach Jim Leavitt:

He rationally chose a game-tying field goal on the final play of regulation instead of going for the win from the 1-yard line, then beat No. 17 Auburn in overtime, 26-23, the third straight year the Bulls topped a ranked team.

On my AP ballot, that earned them a No. 25 ranking, meaning I ranked four Big East teams (also West Virginia, Louisville and Rutgers) to just three Big Ten teams (Wisconsin, Penn State and Ohio State).
