Central Michigan Wins GMAC Bowl
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Dan LeFevour put on one last show, Andrew Aguila kicked five field goals, including the 37-yard game-winner in double overtime, and No. 25 Central Michigan beat Troy 44-41 in the GMAC Bowl Wednesday night.

LeFevour had a touchdown pass to put the sluggish Chippewas (12-2) ahead with 1:17 left and scored from 13 yards out in the first overtime on the day he moved into second place in the Football Bowl Subdivision's career total yards list.

Vince Agnew blocked Michael Taylor's 31-yard field-goal attempt to start the second overtime and Central Michigan played it conservative before Aguila set a GMAC record with his fifth field goal.

The Trojans (9-4) led much of the game behind DuJuan Harris' three touchdowns. But after taking a 31-19 lead midway through the fourth quarter, they gave up a 95-yard kickoff return to Antonio Brown, then allowed LeFevour to complete 8 of 11 passes for 90 yards before finding Bryan Anderson for a 4-yard score.
