USC moves up

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

November 27, 2006 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP

  • USC moved up to number two in the BCS with an impressive win over Notre Dame. If the Trojans beat UCLA, Pete Carroll's team will face Ohio State for the national championship.

  • Drew Brees has had five straight 300-yard passing games. He threw for 349 in a win over the Falcons.

  • Tony Romo threw five touchdowns for the Cowboys on Thanksgiving day.

  • Ryan Howard and Justin Morneau won the MVP awards in the NL and AL, respectively.

  • Tiger Woods won the Grand Slam of golf for a record seventh time.

  • Butler won the NIT, beating Notre Dame, Indiana, Tennessee and Gonzaga along the way.

    STOCK DOWN

  • The Giants blew a 21-0 lead in the fourth quarter in a loss to Tennessee.

  • The Falcons have dropped four in a row and a Michael Vick showed his frustration as he left the field.

  • West Virginia was stunned at home by South Florida. Jim Leavitt's team stunned Louisville last year.

  • Ben Wallace had no rebounds Friday night, his first career start with zero boards.
