I thought Mizzu would blow them out, just going from the Mizzu vs Illinois game early this season. Northwestern came to play and I was impressed.

Tonight the game I have been looking forward to in Oklahoma ST vs Oregon. Should be a ton of points. Go Cowboys

I wonder what the spread is for tonight's game. I'm sure the Cowboys will be the heavy favorite over the Ducks. Speaking of Cowboys, since the team from Dallas can't win, maybe the one from OK will.

From here on out, I really don't have a preference who wins the Bowl games. Rutgers won yesterday and I'm happy. In general, I'll root for the underdog. In the BCS game, I'll root for FL.

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).

Yep. Both of our college teams won.
(Sorry Canes)

I'm especially glad now TCU won 11 games and the bowl to end the season, since that horror last Sunday with the Cowboys.
At least SOMEONE in DFW had a good seaon this year....

After starting out with a ton of offense this game has turned into a defensive struggle. Oregon has look horrible on offense dropping balls, and their FG's have been awful. Hopefully Dez comes back in the 2nd half and gives a spark to the Pokes.

Quack, Quack!

It was just a matter of time until the Ducks took control. The game plan by the Ducks was horrible in the first half, but it all worked out. Very few teams could stop that offense all game long (USC did but before Masoli was comfortable with the offense).

To be honest, I was expecting more of a blow out, but that lay off took a bit out of our offense. Dez was great but OSU's running game was bottled up all night long. The Pokes were just smacked around and offensively overmatched.

Fun game to watch.

For the purpose of conversation; I don't really think OK State was overmatched. That was a great back and forth game throughout until the Ducks made the stops they needed to and put it away at the end.

More importantly, congrats Rice Owls for winning the Texas Bowl.

Also losing their best WR in Dez Bryant for most of the game didn't help their cause either.


Rice came to play yesterday, I didn't get to see it because of the NFL network garbage, however good game for the Owls.

I thought Minnesota would beat Kansas last night; not even close.

Well, Iowa, PSU, OSU, MSU; someone will get a win. OSU over Texas maybe.

I'm not giving PSU much of a chance. The real USC is alot better than the other USC.

I'm calling it 31-10.
