BUIES CREEK, NC (AP) - Akeem Richmond scored a season-high 37 points and hit 10 3-pointers in lifting East Carolina past Campbell 79-71 in a nonconference matchup on Thursday night.

Campbell (6-8) led at the break 39-37 after falling behind 21-11 to the Pirates but then reversing their fortune and tying the score at 35 with a Reco McCarter 3-pointer with two minutes left.

The second period saw East Carolina (11-4) once again break out to an early lead at 56-50 but the Fighting Camels refused to go away, staying close but never regaining the lead.

East Carolina led 70-68 with 4 minutes to play when both teams went cold from the field and Campbell was forced to foul. Richmond and Antonio Robinson combined for 7 of 8 from the penalty stripe and the Pirates pulled away for the win.

McCarter scored 29 points for Campbell and Marvelle Harris added 16.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Trevor Knight passed for 348 yards and four touchdowns and No.11 Oklahoma took down third-ranked Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, 45-31 on Thursday night.

Kinght's completion percentage entering the game was 52.2. He had completed 47 passes all season, and had 32 against Alabama to set a Sugar Bowl record.

The victory was a sweet one for Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, who last offseason called talk about the Southeastern Conference being the best league in college football "propaganda."

His team vanquished an Alabama squad that had been ranked No. 1 much of the past three seasons, winning the previous two national titles.

AJ McCarron passed for 387 yards and two TDs, but his two interceptions set up Oklahoma TDs, and his fumble, returned for a score in the final minute, sealed 'Bama's first two-game skid since its Sugar Bowl loss to Utah in January 2009.

The Sugar Bowl's 80th edition marked the first in which both quarterbacks passed for 300-plus yards.
