Liberty Bowl Winner: Central Florida
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Latavius Murray scored on a 10 yard touchdown run with 9:01 left, and Central Florida held on to beat Georgia 10-6 in the Liberty Bowl and cap the best season in school history with the program's first postseason victory.

The 11-3 Knights had never won more than 10 games in a season and had lost their first three bowl games. The Conference USA champs made this win even sweeter by knocking off a Southeastern Conference team in the process.

Georgia finished 6-7. This snapped a four-game bowl winning streak with its first loss since the 2006 Sugar Bowl. Worse for the Bulldogs is notching their first losing season since going 5-6 in 1996.
