The Cornhuskers are on the right track for the first time in years. While I don't have the passion for college ball as I do pro ball, I do pay attention to the Big 12. Missouri has surprisingly become a player in this. They've been on a dry run for years and are playing great ball now. For the north, I go with Missouri first, then Nebraska, then Colorado. But Nebraska will be heard from soon.

Temple Owls 1-4:

Army W 35-7
UConn L 9-12 (Overtime)
Buffalo L 28-30 (Hailmary)
Penn State L 3-45
W. Michigan L 3-7
Miami (OH) Currently winning 7-0

Easily the best 1 win team in the country. We should be at least 3-2. Our D is still incredibly, incredibly good, and we lead the nation in kick returning.

Florida Gators 4-1:

Hawaii W 56-10
Miami W 26-3
Tenn W 30-6
Miss L 30-31
Ark W 38-7

How about TCU? They were a ranked team until OU slaughtered them in Norman..

Ranked yes but in the low 20's, that means they could easily be out of the top 25. Teams arent always ranked where they should be, look at Ohio St before the USC game. We will find out this week, my Horns are a good team and should see how good really is.

My point was that they have played better competition than Texas.

Texas' defense is nowhere near the level of OU, nor is their running game, but in this game you can throw out all of the Xs and Os.

OU is the better team, but the better team doesn't always win these games.

However, if I were a betting man, I'd lay money on OU to put texas where they belong (not in the top 5).

florida is a hell of a lot better than ole miss, and USC is better than oregon state, but that's why they play the games!

Hoboken, I'm a Michigan fan, and if you guys lose to us at home this year you should just pack in the PSU program, period. Michigan is awful this year, although I was lucky enough to be in attendance for that great win over Wisconsin.

PLEASE, Texas isnt a top 5 team? Is this a serious comment? How about Colt McCoy is a better QB than Bradford, I have stats to back that up.

Our running game isn't as good as OU, how about Texas has the 27th ranked rushing offense to OU's 40th. Our Pass D isnt great no, but we have the 3rd ranked run defense in the nation and are ranked 4th in defensive scoring. Am I worried about OU's passing game yea, but we lead the nation in defensive sacks.

So it looks like Statistics show Texas is a pretty good team, maybe if we played Chattanooga we'd be even better.If you average out the teams they have played so far OU's opponets average is 64 and Texas is 70 so theres a pretty big gap there isnt it . I mean we know OU is unstoppable, ask West Virgina and Boise St. Oh wait, didnt they beat OU.

So youre bringing up OU's losses from 2 seasons ago???

How bout OU kind of spanked UT last year. Oh yeah and we SMOKED Mizzou twice as well. WV, we were missing HALF of our defensive starters.
Last I checked UT hasnt won the BIGXII conference THE LAST THREE YEARS in a row!!! The Sooners have.
When was the last time they were in a BCS game, oh I know it was 3 years ago.


Bradfords stats 204.97 rating 1665 yards 18 tds


Mccoys Stats 197.94 rating 1280 yards 16 tds

And youre saying McCoys stats are better??!! Doesnt look like it.

We didnt schedule chatt, They were a last minute replacement when another team backed out.
Fla Atlantic, now there is a winner!!
Oh and Rice too, Tulsa just put more points on them than you guys!!!

And over the last 30 years the RRR is right at even wins between the two teams.

Stoops Vs. Mack Brown MUCH different story. Stoops is 8-2, nows thats pwned!


OU 35, UT 17.
