LUBBOCK, Texas -

The lawyer for Mike Leach says the suspended Texas Tech coach did nothing wrong in how he treated a player with a "mild" concussion, and Leach is seeking a court's help to allow him to coach in Saturday's Alamo Bowl.

The motion for a temporary restraining order was filed Tuesday in Lubbock. An in-chambers hearing was set for this morning in the 99th District Court.

University officials suspended Leach on Monday while the school investigates a complaint from receiver Adam James and his family.

James is the son of former NFL player Craig James, now a television college football analyst for ESPN.

UCLA 30,

TEMPLE 21

WASHINGTON - Temple's first bowl game in 30 years was ruined by the UCLA Bruins.

Akeem Ayers returned an interception 2 yards for a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter and UCLA shut down Temple in the second half in the EagleBank Bowl at RFK Stadium.

The Bruins (7-6) rallied from a 21-7 first-half deficit to finish with a winning record for the first time since 2006. That mini-slump by UCLA pales in comparison to the decades of futility endured by the Owls (9-4), whose only previous bowl appearances in school history were the inaugural Sugar Bowl in 1935 and the Garden State Bowl in 1979.
