It's late, but I'm glad TCU won in a tough game.

I knew they'd take care of business, and in the most dramatic form yet. We'll be in the top 10 for sure.

And good job, Notre Dame.

WVU pulled off a nice win against UNC. I read that Pat White is the only QB in the history of college football to go 4-0 in his college career in Bowl games!

As a Rutgers fan, I won't miss seeing him leave college. Speaking of RU, I'm a little nervous about tomorrow's game. But I'm confident. Go RU!

Here's the college football Bowl game scoreboard that's updated in real time. Only 1 game today: NIU vs. LTU. * Yawn *

^^ Well I hope tomorrow Russell Wilson will be on his way to become the 2nd player to acomplish that feat

Speaking of Rutgers again, i hope the basketball team beats UNC tonight, but so far that's not happening

R. Wilson is 3-0 in Bowl games so far? Good for him. Wouldn't that be something if history is repeated right after White set it. But hopefully it won't happen.

I just checked the score on that college basketball game. Rutgers is losing 63-46 in the 2nd half w/ 15:34 left. I barely follow them since they've been so bad. I'm more interested in the nappy-headed hos, I mean, RU women's basketball. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if they could beat the men's team.

Ahh, I see, so you're hoping you can start the streak.

A 4-0 record in Bowl games is tough b/c a.) it's hard to be a starter as a freshman, b.) to win 4 consecutive Bowl games, and c.) if you really are that good, then to resist the temptation to leave college and join the NFL early (before graduation).

Canes, sorry about your wolfpack losing today. They did play one heck of a game. To lose your starting QB, who looked dang good, and still be that close to winning was amazing. What a great game

Now you have Mizzu who has just not shown up for the game tonight and it's obvious with the penalties and just bone head plays.

Yeah that killed us because neither Beck nor Evans has had much playing time, and Beck for some reason doesnt pay attention when he throws, and Evans really isnt a gun-slinger.
Russell Wilson sure is exciting to watch. Too bad he couldnt play the whole game, I'm certain he would have pulled off more exciting plays.
Ah well, at least we turned our season around and got a bowl-berth. Congrats beowulf! You guys did good

Thanks, Canes. Your team played very tough. Wilson did great in the 1st half - esp. in his ability to scramble - and we lucked out a little when he was injured toward the end of the 1st half.

RU's wide receiver showed why they're so great and Teel showed he can pass well if he has time. Teel and Underwood will definitely be gone next year (seniors) and I bet Britt will come out early for the draft. He might even be 1st round material. The RU offense will look much different next year. : \

In other Bowl news, NW outgained MO and even had fewer turnovers than them, yet they still lost tonight (in OT).

The Cats played well; but a loss is a loss. The bowl season is off to a great start for the Big Ten this year. Wisconsin getting crushed, Northwestern losing to Mizzou. Minnesota v. Kansas may be our best chance to even win a bowl game and avoid 0-6!

EDIT: Forgot about Iowa v. SoCar. I am thinking Iowa and Minnesota will spare us the horror of 0-7
