Chris Petersen will be Washington's new football coach, leaving Boise State after eight seasons.
The Huskies gave Petersen a guaranteed five-year, $18 million contract, according to ESPN.
He replaces Steve Sarkisian, who left earlier this week to take the USC job. Also, Sarkisian hired Washington assistants Peter Sirmon, Johnny Nansen and Keith Heyward. Matt Johnson threw five touchdown passes and Bowling Green (10-3) routed No. 16 Northern Illinois 47-27 in Detroit for the Mid-American title, ending the Huskies' shot at a BCS bowl game. Jordan Lynch ran for 126 yards and two TDs for the Huskies (12-1) to break his own single-season record for yards rushing by a quarterback in Division I. He has 1,881 yards.
He ran for 1,815 in 2012. Johnson was 21 of 27 for 393 yards as the Falcons won a MAC title for the first time since 1992. Auburn gave coach Gus Malzahn a new six-year contract worth $3.85 million annually. He was hired last December, signing a five-year deal worth $2.3 million annually. A source said Notre Dame will accept a bid to the Pinstripe Bowl at New York's Yankee Stadium. The Irish (8-4) will play either Houston (8-4) or Rutgers (5-6) on Dec. 28.
Tiger Woods had a birdie putt on every hole and made 10 of them at the World Challenge in Thousand Oaks. He shot a 10-under 62 at Sherwood Country Club for a two-round total of 11-under 133 -- two shots ahead of Zach Johnson (68). "It was good day," a smiling Woods said. Stacy Lewis increased her lead to two strokes in the Dubai (United Arab Emirates) Ladies Masters, shooting a 2-under 70 in the third round. She was at 11-under 205. Lindsey Vonn, just 10 months after major knee surgery and less than three weeks after partially retearing a ligament, placed 40th out of 60 starters in a World Cup women's downhill in Lake Louise, Alberta. "I skied tight," said Vonn, who finished in 1 minute, 59.22 seconds. Maria Hoefl-Riesch won in 1:56.03.
